Perfect synthetic insulator

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

I had a fleece that I had to return due to excessive pilling and to their credit Arc'teryx offered to replace the fleece with another item of my choice. I hadn't expected this (as I thought they would just send me a replacement fleece) but I'm extremely happy they send me the Atom SV .

I can't imagine using this as a mid layer, but as an outer jacket it is fantastic. The fit is great with superb cuffs, dropped hem, and an incredibly comfortable hood. The hood adjustments really make this thing bomber when it gets seriously cold or when there is a high wind chill factor.

I am 184cm, 72Kg (6.1/160) and the Medium fits me great. The Atom SV is sized so that you can layer it over some mid layers, which for me at this size it does great. I bought a Medium Atom LT because I liked the SV so much and it fits perfectly under it. A thick fleece or thin down sweater will also easily work. If you want to layer over a thicker down jacket you might want to get a bigger size in order not to compress the thicker down baffles as much.

If you need a synthetic insulator piece with a super comfortable hood, great cuffs and overall fit, this piece is absolutely fantastic and you can't go wrong with it.

i'm 5'8" 150 pounds usually buy size medium jackets should i get a small or medium. from some of the reviews I'm leaning towards a small.

Responded on

Jace,
That all depends on how you intend to use the Arc'teryx Atom SV. If you want this to be a versatile insulating piece that you can fit under your ski shell or layer under to use as an outer jacket, I would definitely recommend a medium.

If however you know that this will only be a midlayer for you with little layering underneath the small could fit just fine.

The Atom SV is an "athletic" fit. So it is tailored, though not as snug as Arc'teryx's "trim" fit. Personally I would recommend the medium for you based on your height and weight. Though again, I would ultimately consider your intended use when choosing between the two sizes.

Best Answer Responded on

I would snag the Small. I am 5' 10" 150lbs, and a small fits me great. It is not cut a bit bigger than the Atom LT so layering over a shell is not a problem. It could only be worn as a mid layer on the coldest of days anyway.

Responded on

I would definitely get a Small. I'm 6.1/160 and have a Medium that I think fits perfectly. I have an Atom LT in Medium too and that one fits perfectly worn underneath the SV.

Just to be clear, the Atom SV is cut bigger, to be worn over the Atom LT. Great combination together. I think you would be fine with a Small to layer it over a mid weight fleece, or an Atom LT, or a light thin down sweater. If you want to layer over a thicker down jacket I might get a bigger size in order not to compress it.

Exactly as I had hoped

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

So far, I am loving my Atom SV Hooded Jacket. I was looking for a while to find an upgrade to my Marmot Primaloft jacket (circa 2000). And with a move from NJ to southern VT, I wanted something that would be a bit warmer. My first week in VT was the coldest week in more than 5 years, and the Atom SV was up to the task. I can see that it may be too warm for some when doing active pursuits (skiing, snowshoeing, etc), but it is perfect as a casual, around the town jacket. Next season, I will try it skiing, matched with my Arc'teryx Theta AR Jacket (I have had several Arc'teryx jackets and have been a huge fan of their quality and how they stand by their quality).

Best synthetic

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

This thing rocks! Coreloft is in my opinion the all around best insulation out there. The clo at 100 grams is 3.38 and yet they never say anything about it. That is a class company for you. The outer face fabric is more durable and more breathable than pertex as well.

Very comfortable, warm for light weight, hood fits well (no helmet), room to layer under it if colder.

A great warm jacket! Very light but very insulating outer layer.

Purchased the M in storm and fits great. It is not bulky at all and has plenty of room for layering.

Any Idea when there will be a restock of the buckeye color in size small? Not completely happy with the purple hues in the storm color.

Responded on

Unfortunately there are no plans to restock the small/buckeye in the Arc'teryx Atom SV Hooded Insulated Jacket at the moment (no orders placed with Arc'teryx yet).

However, January and February are big restocking months for us and there is definitely a possibility we will get that color and size back in. Please check back with us in a couple of weeks if you haven't found an alternative source by then.

Small updates? Black or buckeye?

Great so far but eh

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

Light and comfortable, arrived yesterday and wore it to work today, it was 15F here today and it kept me comfortable warm.

Negative is i purchased the "Storm" color and the zippers and stretch portions appear to be very purple colored.

Hands Down My Favorite Arc'teryx Jacket

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

...and that's saying a lot. I have owned about 6 different Arc'teryx jackets as well as 5 other down/synthetic insulation jackets from Marmot, The North Face and Patagonia and this one stands out above them all. My favorite things about the Atom SV:

1) The outer material is light, slightly stretchy and does a great job a repelling water. I wouldn't choose to wear this in a rainstorm, but it holds up well to surprise showers and snow.

2) Warmth to weight ratio is outstanding. The Coreloft insulation is much fluffier than traditional Primaloft or other standard synthetics and it does a great job at retaining loft over time.

3) Not too bulky, especially considering how warm it is. This easily fits under my slim rain shells as well as roomier ski shells.

4) Clean lines don't make you look like the Michelin man. I love huge, puffy down jackets, but it's nice to be able to be able to wear the Atom SV with regular clothes without looking like you just got back from a climbing expedition.

I'm 6'3" 195lbs and usually wear Large jackets. This large fits me perfectly...athletic cut but not too snug that I can't wear layers underneath. I highly recommended this jacket and have 4 other friends who swear by it. Best synthetic insulation jacket on the market IMHO.

Trying to decide between this and the Atom LT? The SV is ~3oz heavier than the LT but noticeably warmer. The LT would be great as an insulation layer for exertion in extreme cold weather because the stretchy, non-insulated side panels make the LT breathe better than the SV. Otherwise go for the SV. You're likely going to be pulling this out of your pack at the end of the day or when resting/belaying and you're going to be happy you have the extra warmth of the SV.

The best winter jacket I've ever owned!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This jacket is incredible. It is super warm and very light weight/compressible. I am 6'00 and 175ibs and the XL fits me very we'll. I use it by itself in 20-45F weather and it keeps me super warm. Sometimes I'll wear a pullover or a light running jacket under it for extra warmth. Overall quality is very nice as expected from Arcteryx. I also own the Accelero and a pullover from them and all three are great products. Good job Arcteryx!

overall 2 thumbs up

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

i've worn this everyday for the last month. it's a really nice jacket.

it's ultra light, like a camping pillow. warm in cold conditions, so long as i'm moving, but not when i'm static, like driving a car. nice shoulder articulation, although the hem will ride up if you reach high enough. nice fleece pocket liners -- only on the back-of-the-hand side prevents sweaty hands. lean design looks stealth. athletic cut is flattering. exterior seems like it'd rip easily on tree branches, so i'm not sure it's deserving of the SV mark. it's kind of hard to make a good economic argument for this piece. if it doesn't tear, it should last a good 5 years. you might get judged, for better or worse, for rocking what amounts to a $300 down hoody.

overall, it's way cooler and better than almost any other comparable jacket i'm aware of.

It looks like we will be getting more of the Arc'teryx Atom SV Hooded Insulated Jacket in saguaro and buckeye around the middle of January. Please check back with us around then and we will hook you up!

Light. Warm. Durable.

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

I purchased the Atom SV as my primary winter jacket last year after a bunch of research on various forums. My primary requirements were that the jacket had to be synthetic and it needed to have good warmth while standing still for longish periods of time. It has delivered in spades.

First, it's very, very well built. Sledding marathons, shoveling, walking 3 miles a day through snow, bouts of rain, blah blah... it looks practically new. No seam issues, no wear marks, no rips, no tears and no frays. Even the unique arm cuff has retained a tight seal... and I was sure that would not be the case.

Secondly, it's really warm. When it arrived, I was a little concerned... it's ridiculously light and almost flimsy feeling. I assure you though - after a few blizzards and ridiculously windy, cold days last year - it did not disappoint once. It does a great job keeping you warm when not being active as well.

It fits a bit looser than the other Arc'teryx jacket I own (Epsilon AR), but makes for plenty of room if you want to wear a sweater or even another synthetic layer underneath (for the really cold days hitting 0-ish, I would wear a Patagonia nano-puff pullover underneath it).

If you're looking for a warm, synthetic softshell, I think it would be hard to beat this jacket at this price point... I love it.

Great (almost) !

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I've had a couple of Arcteryx Alpha SVs over the years and this year I decided to go with an Atom SV Hoody in the same size. I already have an Atom LT Hoody, but for winter I wanted a little more insulation. I also have a number of other Arcteryx pieces and like them a lot.

Out of the bag, the Atom SV Hoody looked great--just as it should. Then I put on the Alpha SV shell on over the Atom SV Hoody and zipped in. I'm just over 6', weigh 155 lbs. and the size small Alpha SV shell is perfect. Unfortunately, when I put on Alpha SV shell, the hem length at the front of the hoody was an inch or two longer than the shell. The rear hem of the hoody was cut correctly and was under the hem of the shell. Very disappointed although it's probably just a production error, but I'm surprised at the lack of quality control at Arcteryx. Otherwise the Atom SV Hoody is a great jacket. Warm, toasty, made with coreloft, great sleeve length, hood fits nicely under a helmet (use a beanie otherwise) and it's a substantial upgrade in warmth from the Atom LT Hoody, by 100 grams. I'll revisit my review when I hear from Arcteryx.... Then I may change the number of stars I've given this hoody. With the exception of the too long front hem, the jacket fits true to size. But I don't want to wear something that may be wicking water and you would think that Arcteryx would be more careful!

Called Arcteryx and they said yup, the front hem of the Atom SV Hoody is longer than the front hem of the Alpha SV shell. They said they had down options but not synthetic. Living in the Pacific NW I totally prefer synthetic because it's often raining and windy where I hike in the Cascades rather than snowy. Gearheads at Backcountry suggested the Arcteryx Nuclei--warmer than the Atom LT and fits under the Alpha SV shell perfectly just as the Atom LT. Thanks Backcountry!

Responded on

Although not elegant, one can fold up the hem when wearing under a shell, and use the extra length when worn alone.

Color

  • Gender: Male

Just a note that I got this in "Buckeye" and found the color to be substantially darker than depicted in the product photos. It is really more of a burgundy.

I was a little disappointed about this because it would not be particularly visible in storm conditions. If you want a safety color, go for the green one.

The wrist cut is also pretty slim and it is not possible for me to fit my hand through with gloves on. I have to take off my gloves in order to put on the jacket.

Otherwise a great jacket.

This jacket is the bomb!

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

I've been looking for a warm light jacket for running in the cold NYC winter. This is the one. Very comfortable, all I need is just a base layer and I am good to go into the low teens. The fit is not fitted so there is room for layers. True to size.

Responded on

Nice! What color did you get? I'm looking at the Storm color but not sure if it's as light as it appears on my screen.

@hegaveitall I got mine last year in Storm and it's definitely a little darker looking than the picture. I'm not sure if it was lightened this year though or not.

Thanks CarverShaw, this is helpful. Just curious why there are no reviews for this Atom SV yet there's quite a few for the Atom LT. Thanks again

Responded on

They only reason that there are no reviews up for the Atom SV is because when we got the new line in we for what ever reason created a new sku number. All the reviews that had been written for the older model years stayed with the older model numbers and the new model is just to fresh to have had anybody write a review just yet.

Responded on

What changed from the old version of the SV, besides the color? I loved the old one - do you have any left in stock?

Doesn't look like anything has changed except for some colors. Here are more reviews on Arc site. http://www.arcteryx.com/product.aspx?gender=mens&model=Atom-SV-Hoody&language=EN

What is the difference between this and the Atom LT?
Thanks

Responded on

Hey,
This jacket has 100g insulation as compared to 60 in the Atom LT. This also weighs slightly less, so it will be warmer while being lighter than the Atom LT.

Best Answer Responded on

Just to clarify:the Atom SV is a warmer but heavier jacket than the LT. It weighs 475g versus the LT's 375g. It is also a looser fit then the LT - my medium SV is perfect for layering over a 200 merino base layer, a 100wt fleece, plus a synthetic vest. At the same size my LT fits much trimmer but is good with a base layer and 100wt fleece.
You might also look at the Nuclei, a more technical piece, which is the lightest of the three at 285g but which is in between the Atom LT and Atom SV in terms of warmth. Note that the Nuclei fits closer then the LT (one of the ways it achieves a lower weight) and also has a shinier fabric - nice on the mountain but less so in the city.
They are all great jackets - in the end it all depends on your intended use.
