AWESOME Mid-layering jacket!

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

Before I bought the Atom LT Jacket I looked at quite a few other options from TNF, Mountain Hardwear, and Patagonia. In the end this won by landslide, the other jackets were nice but none really matched the simple styling and the versatility of the Atom. That being said, now that I have used the Atom I am even more satisfied with my choice. I have worn this both as a mid-layer and as its own stand alone layer and it has done a great job in both areas. On one occasion I was wearing this on its own and I had to walk out in a rain storm for about 15 minutes and after wards all the water on the outside just shock off. It is also the warmest mid-layer I have ever put under a shell or other outer-layer. I normally wear smalls when it comes to jackets but after trying this one on in small I had to go with the medium, it was a much better fit. Last thing I will say aout the Atom is the under arm vents are brilliant! I was wearing this to warm up for a work-out and I thought I had made a mistake after about 15min because I was getting so warm, but then I felt the nice cold air come in through the vents under the arms and it helped regulate the temperature very well. This is an awesome jacket it and I highly recommend it, if you couldn't already tell that.
