How warm is this compared to the Atom MX that I have? Really loving the the MX, but looking for something a solid step more toasty, as a complement for really cold weather.

I'm finding the fleece panels on the MX -- while awesome for ventilation -- also cost a lot of insulation. If the Aphix is not significantly warmer I have to look elsewhere.

Thanks.

Great, super light material, good moisture management (moisture from the inside). Works well below 0°C / 30F as long as you are on the move producing heat (jacket does not really warm due to thin fabric).

Size runs big, for comparison, I (6'1" 170ish) got an Atom MX which is trim/snug fit, Gamma MX which is probably "athletic" fit and the Accelero, which is considerably bigger (all in size medium). The longer, hip length, cut is very nice, but it's also very roomy around the torso, so I had like 3cm stitched off from pits to waist on both sides to make it fit similar to the Gamma MX.

Small pockets would be nice too if you were to use it for hiking, trail running or other multi-hour/outdoorsy activities.

Can anyone compare this to the Tau jacket?

I already have an older Gamma MX hoody and am looking for a trim fitting breathable alternative for aerobic activity like trail running in winter and cycling in spring.

(Having endurance sports type build, 6'1" 170lbs, usually arc's M fits. The more trim fit the better so it works better for road cycling too)

Thanks
