Re-defining the puffy jacket.

When a fleece just isn't enough to cut it, but you want a puffy that's super-light and stowable, reach for the Arc'teryx Women's Atom SV Hooded Jacket. Layer the Atom SV Jacket under a ski shell for bombproof warmth and protection on extra-frigid days, or wear it alone while touring or belaying.

  • WaterTight front zip and storm flap hold the elements at bay
  • Gusseted underarms and articulated elbows let you move with ease
  • Plush 100g Coreloft insulation backs the jacket's smooth, water-resistant face
  • Light tricot fleece patches at the underarms reduce bulk and promote breathability
  • Shaped hood has a fleece trim where the inside of the hood contacts your face, chin, and forehead ... mmmmmm

Best Answer Responded on

The Thorium AR employs 750 fill down combined with some140/80g Coreloft strategically placed at high moisture zones (underarm, neck). The Atom SV on the other hand uses 100g Coreloft synthetic insulation throughout the jacket. The Thorium is the warmer jacket and would be my choice if warmth is your only criterion, but the Atom SV will be better for harsh weather conditions or when you are layering up for intense cold weather activity.

my go-to jacket!

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

I think this is the jacket I wear the most, 3 seasons for sure. Perfect for wearing around town in the fall, or layering under a waterproof breathable shell jacket for crazy winter storm riding. This thing is so dang warm for how lightweight it is, its kind of ridiculous. I feel so toasty in this thing, which is why I feel like I can wear it anywhere. I opted for the SV over the LT because I typically run really cold, and I am so glad that I did.

Light, packable and Warm!

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

I own both the Atom LT and Atom SV and find myself using the SV most often. Besides the obvious differences in insulation I love the little extra room and legth of the SV. You really notice the difference in warmth especially since the sides have 100gm of coreloft as well. This is my go to jacket to layer under my shells when skiing as well as walking around town. It packs next to nothing so it fits nicely into my pack or stuffed into a locker in the day lodge.
Highly recomended

How does this compares to the Atom SV? I know that the Ceva has a little less insulation, but how about wind resistance and durability?

Best Answer Responded on

If this question is not answered already:
Atom SV face fabric uses a 20 denier nylon whereas the Ceva uses a 40 denier (Ceva is a little tougher in the department). The next obvious answer is the insulation difference (only 20 gms) but the Atom is warmer. The main difference is the stretch panels on the Ceva. They go on the sides from mid torso cuff. It is meant to add breatheability but not much insulating loft. When worn as a stand alone jacket these same stretch panels let in more air so you may end up feeling a bit of a chill if you are standing still.
Hope this helps

It's almost as warm and lightweight as my Patagonia ultralight down jacket - yet easier to clean! love the stretchy wrist cuffs that keep the cold air out.

How warm is this jacket/coreloft? Is it as warm as the Patagonia Down Sweater (which is great but a bit too short and rides up at the waist, thereby losing body heat)?

Also, I have the Arcteryx Beta AR shell--will it fit over the Atom? Thanks!

Best Answer Responded on

For me, the Atom SV is warmer than the Patagonia down sweater! I have both and find myself reaching for the Atom when it is extra cold... be sure to wear a good wicking baselayer under the atom because you will get really hot in a hurry if you're doing any kind of aerobic exercise.

does this have hip cords for adjusting?

This jacket is fantastic and exactly what I was hoping for - something that isn't too bulky but will keep me warm. I am 5'7"/125 and athletic and the small fits very well (maybe just a little loose in the waist but with layers, just fine). I love the wrists - they are a durable stretchy material that allows seamless glove coverage. I got black because it goes with everything and doesn't show stains. Definitely the best quality jacket that I own.

Love it!

I've been wearing this jacket all winter here in SE Alaska. I do a lot of backcountry skiing. If the temp is below 20, this jacket is great. Warmer than that and I get too hot. Above 10 degrees all I wear is a single underlayer. I've found it to be plenty wind proof when up high out of the trees. I love how it breathes and wicks away any sweat from the skin up. It's always in my pack since it packs up so small. It fits great under my shell as well when the weather really turns on us.It's definately become my new go to jacket.

I waited for this, now Im disappointed

I started with the Atom LT hoody--and I like it a lot--except for the overly large fleece inserts which are too drafty for me, especially around the upper arms. The new Atom SV seems like it would be perfect. It has great features. But get this... I SWEAR that the SV is actually LESS wind resistent than the LT. it makes no sense. Everything about the SV seems like it should be warmer overall. But it isnt. The SV has more insulation and much smaller inserts, but its all wasted because the outer fabric lets so much more wind in and so much more heat out. I just dont understand. Theres nothing horrible about this jacket. I expected it would be just like the Atom LT, but a little warmer and a little less drafty. I was very very wrong about that.

I also noticed this jacket is not warm in the wind at all. It's a shame because when it's not windy I'm perfectly comfortable!

Couldn't be more pleased

This jacket is super nice. The sleeves are one of the best qualities. I have short arms so jackets with cuffs are much more comfortable. These cuffs aren't the usual elastic bands though. I wore this jacket skiing today and was very comfortable all day. The fleece trim on the inside of the hood at the face, chin, forehead area is a very nice. One of those things you didn't know you were missing until you had it. Its very lightweight and packable. Its not a run of the mill puffy jacket. The fit is slimmer/fitted. I am so happy with this purchase.

cosy, perfect weight

This jacket is so light weight and non-bulky I wasn't sure it be warm enough. It is perfect. Its mini-puff style is easy to scrunch up into a bag and the exterior fabric has a slight water repellant quality - enough for a slight downpour. I haven't worn it for an extended time in the rain though. It's warm enough to about 10 degrees celsius, then would require a longsleeve top or fleece under it. I'm long of upper body, and this jacket extends long enough so I don't get any cold air at the back.Its snug wrist cuffs keep cold air from getting in the sleeves.

Does the SV have the same stretchy fleece...

Does the SV have the same stretchy fleece panels as the LT hoody (under the arm and down the side of the body)?

Best Answer Responded on

No. The SV has the insulation along the sides with the same face fabric on the outside.

Excellent jacket!

This is a fantastic jacket. I can't believe how light and comfortable it is. I am actually surprised by how warm it is too. It truly feels like it adjusts to my temperature needs. I can't wear it as the only layer on cold days skiing, but with a underlayer and a shell, I am good to go. I also love it on hikes in the cold, it really keeps me warm and I am someone who is always cold. I really intended this to be a jacket for working out, but it is so comfortable and attractive I wear it as my around town jacket too. I highly recommend it.

does the attom sv fit slim like the atom lt? or is it more like the kappa, which is kind of barrel chested and much roomier overall?

Best Answer Responded on

The Atom SV is in between the Atom LT and Kappa. It's not super trim so you can fit a layer or two underneath, but if you wanted to wear the Atom SV under a hardshell, it would work, and be super warm.

This jacket is Awesome!

This is exactly what I was looking for... something to wear when it's too cold for a fleece, but not cold enough for my heavier down winter coat. This fits the bill perfectly. It's so lightweight and packable, but warm and soft at the same time. I think I'm going to get more use out of this jacket than any other. The fit is great. I'm 5'-5" and 113 pounds and the small is just right. It looks fitted and slim with or without a light fleece underneath.. very flattering jacket... I got the Kalamata color and just love it. It's a dark purple... will work well on the slopes, hiking, biking, dog walking, shopping, out on the town, or to work. This is a quality jacket I will wear for years to come... I have a closet full of nice jackets and I can tell this will be my favorite.
