    Never fails to impress

      Bought this as a gift for a friend. I have one myself as well. Super light weight, durable, and warm. Water resistant, and packs down nice. Good in all climates and a perfect jacket for a hike. This jacket is my go to for basically any activity. The fit is great and range of motion is excellent a classic Arcteryx staple.

      Great Arc'teryx Jacket.

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size

      I gave this as a gift and have received only rave reviews since. He has had it a few months now and loves the versatility. It blocks wind well while still being able to breathe, and it will keep you dry for a bit unless the rain is really hammering down. Added bonus, it looks sweet, can be worn out on the trail or out on the town, hard to go wrong!

      I've been running this jacket for years, both as a layer and just a jacket. It has traveled with me all over the world. Balls up nice and small so it's always there when the sun drops below the ridge.

      I've had several friends tell me I have to get trhia jacket, and I finally broke down and grabbed one. This jacket did not disappoint, super warm but still cool enough to wear on a sunnt day, extremely comfortable, packs small, and doesn't weigh a thing! Definitely recommend it!

      Lovely Jacket

      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: small

      I agree with most other reviews, but have to say that the sleeves get annoyingly sticky and sweaty when in direct contact with skin. Not a lot of airflow or breath-ability in the arms, so I usually have to take it off and air it out if I'm active at all.

      This is the second Arc'teryx Atom LT Hooded Insulated Jacket for me. So clearly I rate this jacket the first Atom was more like a hoody for me used it for everything walking, casual jumper inside, the jacket under the jacket when it is cold. i have been known to say if i die and have an open casket i want to be dressed in this.

      The current and second is way more stealth really handy adjustments round the hood, pockets are cut to a point inside and give the jacket a fast feeling. This one i use for skiing under a shell with just a thin thermal t-shirt, marino vest and shell, with a thin base layer -1C (wet/humid no wind) comfortable. This Version is more of a serous garment.
      My recommendation is get on it you won't be disappointed.

      I was a devout Cerium LT worshiper for the longest time. It was always my go-to jacket. Then I realized I was carrying it around more than I was wearing it as the weather warmed up in the spring. I got the Atom LT and it changed instantly won me over. It's obviously not as warm as a solid down jacket, but it's definitely a year round piece. It'll get you through a decently cold day and wont sweat you into a puddle if you leave it on indoors. I'm 6' 3" 205 lb and the L fits like a glove. Also, the pack it into the sleeve trick works on this coat better than any other. Five friggin stars.

      Easily the most diverse jacket i own

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have had this jacket for more than 5 years and i am convinced that it is the most diverse jacket i own, i take it out on the town, i take it on trips, i take it skiing, i take it overseas. I pretty much don't go anywhere without this jacket.

      Not for tall people

      • Size Bought: XL

      I'm sure it's a fine jacket if you aren't 6'4" +.
      Way too short in the arms. Also a little baggy for my taste.
      I'm ~6'5", 215lbs.
      Thumbs down. Many other jackets from other manufacturers fit much better (dynafit, patagonia, etc.). If they made the sleeves with thumb hooks it would probably solve this problem a little, but it's still a bit baggy.

      Incredible Jacket

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size

      I've never owned a jacket that was THIS warm and also THIS light! Works as warm layer under a larger jacket, or an outside layer with a flannel underneath. Also, somewhat waterproof, as long as it isn't pouring outside. I find myself wanting to order another one, maybe one day.

      SoCal Weather

      This jacket is great for everyday insulation for various types of weather and I chose this over the Atom AR because I felt it would be more flexible with the warmer temperatures in SoCal. I must admit though I was expecting it to be warmer for colder climates when I went to the mountains that reached to ~28 degrees Fahrenheit - I had to wear a warm fleece to keep myself comfortable. But for regular outings like camping, climbing, or just out in the town there is no better jacket out there!

      I’ve only used this jacket for everyday use and walking around town. It’s been cool to cold and very rainy. The jacket has kept me warm and dry. The hood fits very comfortably over a hat and helps keep rain off of my glasses and out of my eyes. I’m know expert, but a close friend recommended this jacket to me and I have been very pleased. I was also pleased with the offer at Backcountry. The fit is perfect and the jacket was delivered on time.

      My new go to insulation layer!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size

      I don't know what I can say that others haven't already. This jacket is fantastic, I was coming from an older mountain hardwear thermostatic jacket which was alright. The fit of this jacket is superb, the pockets are better and I like having the hood! The thing I was most impressed with this jacket was moisture management. I sweat...like a lot...and in 4 days skiing between high teens to low 30's this jacket functioned as my main insulating layer. Regardless of how much I sweat, I stayed very warm, and felt dry and I attribute that mostly to this jacket. I was amazed at how quickly this jacket would dry out after a day on the slopes, I could shower and dress for the evening and it was dry by the time I was ready to walk out the door! And best of all, it didn't get funky and hold onto smells like some synthetics seem to.

      All in all, don't hesitate to purchase this jacket, it truly is a do everything insulation piece which could be used as a mid layer or to wear out in the evening!

      Has anyone had any problems with the zipper? I haven't worn it yet but just pulling the jacket open when it's half zipped, tends to unzip really easy.

      Just concerned of it unzipping easily while doing things.

      My heigh is 5'5", should I go for the xs or small one? I also wanted to know how long is the jacket (is it hip length or like in the mid thigh)?

      Unsure about what size I should get...I am 6'0 170lbs with a slim/athletic build. I want to be able to wear a fleece jacket underneath this, so I was thinking a large, but I am not sure...

      I'm built similar to you (6'1" 175lbs) and sport a medium in this jacket and would not be able to fit a light 100wt fleece under this comfortably. You would probably be better suited with a large if heavy layering will be used. It's a tad slimmer than say a similar Patagonia sized jacket, but works great with a long sleeve shirt or thermal. I love this jacket for it's weight to warmth ratio you will not be disappointed...

      How well does the hood fit when not wearing a helmet?

      Hey Matthew, I've never worn a helmet with mine and have had no issues with the hood. I do not own the newest version of the Atom LT, so my hood doesn't even have any adjustments. Considering my experience and how you can now adjust the hood, I'm confident you won't have any problems.

      I am trying to decide between the hood or no hood. Definitely plan to use it under my shell for skiing which is where the hood could be annoying. But for other things where I use it as an outer layer (belaying mostly and/or hiking) the hood may be nice. Is the hood annoying under a coat or is it not too bad?

      Hi, I'm 181 cm / 73kg / 95 cm chest.

      Would you recommend a Medium or a Small?

      The chest measurement is the best to go off of when picking out jackets. The small will actually be a perfect fit for you if you want to wear the jacket the way it was intended to be worn which is athletic or slightly tighter for people climbing in it. If you want a much more relaxed fit then the medium is an option but, I feel that it would be way to big as the small chest measurement fits best for people at 97cm.

      Is there a jacket similar to this but more waterproof? Open to other brands. thanks!

      With the DWR treatment this tends to shed rain about as well as a softshell. If you're looking for full waterproofing you'll probably want to look to a hardshell. If you're looking for light versatile layers I like the Patagonia Alpine Houdini as something to get on quick when the wet gets insistent.

      I am 5'10 and 175 with an athletic build - what size would you recommend? Thanks!

      How would you compare the warmth of this jacket to that of Mountain Hardwear Ghost Whisperer or another similar down jacket?

      Best Answer

      I think my Ghost Whisperer might be slightly warmer than my Atom.

      The warmth of any down jacket is going to be directly related to the loft. Thicker = Warmer. Note - Fill Power is a measure of how light and packable the down is. This is where the Ghost Whisperer blows most jackets out of the water.

      The atom still has an advantage in a lot of areas, however. It's more comfortable, I like the way it breathes better, I like the hood better, it's more abrasion resistant and it moves better. It's also going to do better in wet weather being that it's a synthetic. The Ghost Whisperer is still going to win in the lightweight and packable categories however so if that's your priority, then the ghost whisperer may be the way to go.

      The atom is probably the best jacket for 85% of situations and a favorite of a lot of people I've worked with over the years in this industry. I think everyone should have (at least) one.

      Why is "rusted copper" a shade of orange? Shouldn't it be a shade of green? Just sayin'.

      So I am debating between the S and M i am 5' 7-8" and 145-150lbs i want to be able to add a layer like a hoody underneath so i don't know if the small would be to tight but i don't want the medium to be to baggy if i wasn't wearing a hoody under it. so not really sure what size to get any help is appreciated thanks!

      Hello,

      At the moment I'm looking for a super versatile, do it all, tough jacket that I can rely on in a multitude of conditions. I've narrowed it down between the Patagonia Nano-Air Hooded vs. this Arc'Teryx Atom LT Hoody. Could someone give me a breakdown on the pros and cons between these two jackets? I'm trying to find as much info as possible so I can make the right decision when purchasing my next jacket. I've only found one article online that discusses these two jackets exclusively, so if anyone can help me out, that'd be great! Thank you very much!

      Hey Jane Hwang.

      The man in the photo... what size he is wearing? And what is his height?

      I see that the LT is Hood compatible. If worn without a helmet is the hood too large on your head. I would like to use this jacket without a helmet for hiking.

      Also, is this jacket a 2014 version and does the hood and waist have draw strings ?



      Aside from the LT being warmer how would you compare the LT to Outdoor Research Cathode Hooded jacket ?

      How well does this hold up as an outer layer? Looking for a swiss army knife type jacket... Lightweight/Compressible, Insulated, Water Resistant/Proof... Hoping this might be the right piece. Love Arc'teryx gear in general. Thanks for any advice on it.

      Best Answer

      Hey! Jacket definitely is water resistant but, not proof. I would also question the durability of this jacket on the mountain as an outer layer. As a around town jacket it is just fine, I would even wear it touring on the up but, on the down snagging trees and what not you really need a hard shell or at least the burlier version of this jacket in the AR version, http://www.backcountry.com/arcteryx-atom-ar-hooded-insulated-jacket-mens?ti=UExQIENhdDpNZW4ncyBTeW50aGV0aWMgSW5zdWxhdGlvbiBKYWNrZXRzOjE6MzpiY3NDYXQxMTEwMDE2&skid=ARC004D-BK-S

      Does anyone know what is the main difference between atom leaf vs ordinary model?

      Does leaf atom model have 40d fabric?

      How does it compare in general to ordinary atom?

      The main differences between the leaf model and the regular one are that the leaf has a more durable face fabric (called Gossamera--same fabric as the Atom AR), it is a few ounces heavier, has a "vertically routed" hip adjustment cord, and the color of the logo matches the fabric color. In my experience, the leaf model fits a little baggier. I ended up going with the regular model because it fits a little trimmer and is more packable, which is what I was looking for.

      I bought an Atom LT hoody about a year ago on BackCountry. I love everything about this jacket except for one major issue. The main front zipper will not stay all the way up when doing almost any sort of activity. It literally falls down 4-5 inches even when just wearing a backpack. I talked to Arcteryx with no resolve and was told it was by design to make one hand operation easy. My question is have they fixed this design issue for the new model this year? I love my jacket but this zipper issue is a tough one to overlook, just wish I could somehow get it resolved from a company like Arcteryx........

      I asked my buddy who used to work at Arc'teryx and he also says that the zipper is like that by design for easy one hand operation.



      For instance, when you have a shell on and want easy access to some ventilation, you can unzip your shell and pull on the collar of the Atom LT to open it up some. While the zipper is soft, I have one myself and haven't had problems with it unzipping too much.



      So to answer your question, no, they haven't fixed this--but they also don't see it as an issue since it was designed this way. Still love this jacket!

      Hi!



      What is the color of sleeves cuffs on green color? On official page I notice that they are grey but on attached picture i noticing they are same color as body color.



      Please let me know.



      Thanks!

      Have a question about the Carbon Copy color. Is this actually the black color? In REI and a few other sites like EVO, the carbon copy color is listed as black and their Carbon copy version has the blue trim and interior color. So which one is correct?
