I enjoy getting out in God's creation. My wife and I like traveling to different countries to see other cultures and help out with orphans. We enjoy hiking, camping, and so on. I like buying my gear from BC because of the great return policy and how they stand behind what they say.

New Atom LT
4 5

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: True to size

This is not a review of warmth or durability. I ordered because I was curious about the new model of this great jacket.
In this revision they changed the fabric which is hard to tell by looking at it. One person said this is the same fabric used on the Atom SV.?? It is still very thin, I took a close up for detail of fabric. The hood has changed to fit a helmet, I can't test the fit as I don't have a helmet to test with but I know it's bigger than the previous and DOES include an adjuster on back of hood which cinches sides and top of hood at the same time. Inside pic of hood shows where the cord runs. They also changed the stretch cuffs by making the cuff shorter. I don't have my old version to show a side by side comparision but if you have the older one you can see the difference. The fit seems a little bigger to me but maybe not. This is the carbon copy color, similiar to colors in the past and not as dark in the stock photo.
I hope this is helpful for someone looking to purchase this updated model. I won't be keeping because the hood is so big for use without a helmet.

BC rep please..
I notice the Atom SV is on sale. Wondering why you haven't put all these on sale yet since you are selling the new model now? Wouldn't these all be considered discontinued models? The arc rep said the dealers can choose whether to put on sale or not...

I quickly decided this wasn't what I expected and too much money for what it is. I will be returning after trying on. The fabric doesn't "seem" like it would breathe as well as the Delta LT, and it's not as stretchy. I thought it was going to be more of a hardface fleece but it's not. Athletic fit similiar to the Delta LT.

Not really a question or review but just thought it was curious how Arcteryx let BC sell this before they even release it on their site. I am dissapointed as I have been waiting for this new version to come out and see it has a helmet compatible hood and they changed the face fabric. I would like to know how people like the new fabric but I won't be purchasing this one since I don't wear a helmet for my activities and the original hood was even a little big. I hope others like it. I just wish this company made more jackets with normal hoods, though I guess they are aiming at a specific group of people with their gear.

Runs short, watch colors.
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs small

I just received mine today and first impression is, it fits short. Covers half my ears pulled down tight. Also color is not as pictured. I ordered the metro and the outside is white and inside is what the stock photo looks like. These are not reversible either because of stitching, tags, and no logo on inside. So not sure what happened with their colors. I read on IB site this is same for black, black inside and dark gray outside. It is soft and not itchy. Still not as thick as what I wanted for around town use with limited exertion.
