Atom AR Hooded Insulated Jacket

The Arc'teryx Atom AR Hooded Insulated Jacket is ready for peak-bagging missions, weekends in the wilderness, and cold days on the slopes. Layer it under a shell on particularly cold, wet days or wear it as a standalone piece when conditions are less harsh. Synthetic Coreloft insulation in the body, sleeves, and hood keep heat in while you embark on your winter adventures, and it retains its heat even when it gets wet. Coreloft is also highly packable making it easy to stow the jacket in your pack for easy access for when you need it next. When worn alone, the durable and lightweight stretch face fabric protects the jacket from tears from minor abrasions.

I spent a lot of time researching jackets this year after gaining weight and giving my old LLBean 850 puffy down jacket to my mother. I tested this out walking around the neighborhood at 9pm, in 44 degree weather, with a slight drizzle. While I didn't feel cold, I didn't feel warm. I then switched with my old LLBean jacket and went around the block again. My core felt warmer in that jacket and the pockets felt very warm. My LLBean has served me very well winter camping, after hiking and back in camp when it was 20F and very windy; however, it was not possible to wear hiking because it got too warm. I'm gonna say I think this is a high output jacket. It wouldn't keep me warm in camp, and I question whether it will keep me warm at temps below 20 while casually walking. I feel like this jacket needs an additional jacket over it to be warm. I'm continuing my search for a warm jacket under $230. Other than that, the blue is a beautiful color. Excellent hood. As usual, arcteryx fits well and looks beautiful. 42" bust and the XL was perfect.

This jacket is the perfect piece of outerwear for all of my favorite activities. On cold days, it is my top choice for hiking. I pair it with a hard shell for extra wind protection when necessary, but I usually wear it on its own. I can't stand the constant dance of taking off my coat and putting it back on while I am hiking, and this jacket solved that for me. It doesn't overheat, but I am always warm. I won't head out with any other jacket. On extremely cold days this jacket works well for trail running, as the additional sweat does not create that freezing damp mess that less technical jackets do. I particularly like the cut of the arms, as it is designed for activities where your arms are bent. This is very comfortable and much less restrictive than other high-end outerwear choices.

This is my go-to jacket in the winter. The breath-ability and warmth make it an incredibly versatile piece. Slight water resistance comes in handy when I get caught in a quick storm. Fit is great with ample length in the arms and torso. Love the hood design as it actually stays on when it is windy.

I have not tested this out for warmth yet--I bought it for a light layer on warm ski days. But, the fit is great. I am 5'9" and 145 lbs. and the sleeves and length of the jacket are perfect in a size M. I bought the dark purple color and it is a great color, good alternative to a basic black jacket.

As part of the Arc'teryx essentials collection this jacket is truly a must own. Whether you buy the AR or the LT, everyone needs an Atom. Everyone. Fit is great and designed to work even with a harness. Insanely comfortable as well as impressively light and packable for a synthetic fill jacket.

Wow, this thing is super lightweight! So light and thin that I fear it won't be warm enough, but I'm reserving judgement on that until I've tested it. This winter in Ohio has been spring so far, with high temps in the 50s and 60s, so I can't really test this yet. I will say that on the 40 and 50 degree mornings, I've thrown this on and I did not overheat. It is very breathable and comfortable. It seems to stand up well against wind. If this thing truly takes me down through the winter temps as well, it will be the most versatile jacket I've ever owned. Fingers crossed and I will update once I've put it through more testing. The fit is absolutely amazing. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to layer under it because it seems so form fitting, and yet, somehow there is still space in here to layer. I should mention that I'm a 34 B, so your mileage may vary. The movement in the arms at the shoulder and elbow are like no jacket I've ever owned. Seriously, the arms/shoulders/elbows are brilliantly constructed for amazing ease of movement without the jacket riding up or limiting motion. I could do yoga in this jacket. Wow. Just wow. The collar is perfectly designed and very soft and comfortable when zipped up. There is even a little extra webbing along the top of the back in between the inner body of the coat and the hood, which provides coverage at the back of the neck when the hood is not on your head. Nice touch! No scarf needed. The hood fits brilliantly, gives great coverage, yet doesn't limit vision. I love that the hood is adjustable, great for those days when I wear my hair up in a bun or wear a bike helmet. The hood is designed to accommodate a helmet and has lots of volume. I do have a large, long head and a lot of hair, but with the adjustable design and brow construction, even those will smaller heads and less hair will likely still get a useable fit even when not wearing a helmet. This jacket works great as a mid layer too. Perfect stream lined fit under rain coats/outer shells. The design on the cuffs is the most comfortable I've had. Seamless coverage on the wrist with no constriction and no annoying buttons, velcro, or snaps etc. Slides under an outer layer like butter. Stays put when I move my arm around. The sleeves are very long, very long indeed, but the extra coverage is kinda nice and adds to the ease of movement. The fit overall is flattering and trim; doesn't make you look like a marshmallow. Rugged and ready for camp and trail, yet just stylish enough to get by for downtown walks. I have the black color. Mine arrived looking like it had been stuck in a backpack- lots of wrinkles, but its other charms have me overlooking the wrinkles. I should mention that the material makes a fairly noticeable crinkly sound, (if that kinda thing bothers you), another easily overlooked trait given the superior comfort and design. The only small quibbles I really have is that the coat seems a bit short in the front. Maybe I just have a long torso, but this does not really reach hip length on me. It feels just about an inch or two too short of where I'd comfortably expect it to be for good torso coverage. Also the hand pockets are just a bit shallow, could use a smidge more depth. But these are minor complaints on such a brilliant work of art. Certainly still deserving of this initial 5 star rating. I will update once it's handled some actual winter weather.

I haven't worn this yet given that it's summer, but I can tell it's going to be very warm when the temperatures drop. I purchased a medium and in retrospect I think a small would have worked better. The arms are a little too long, but overall the fit is good. I will also be able to layer things underneath easily.

Okay, so my poor mother has never had much success with coats. (usually zipper problems...) So for her birthday, I set out on the mission of finding the jacket that would last. I compared 40 or so jackets, ranging from Lole to Patagonia to Eider, before I finally settled on this one. And I'm very pleased with this jacket. It's warm, functional, and fitting for everything I was looking for. From the StormHood that easily would be compatible with a helmet for climbing or cycling to the jersey-knit sleeves that comfortably pulls over the base of the hands on those days you've forgotten your gloves. The interior chest pocket is spacious, with plenty of room to throw your keys and a couple of other essentials, way better than some of the ones I've dealt with that you can barely fit a business card in. The material on this is very high quality, and its going to survive the long run, which was the main reason I bought it. And what's awesome about Arc'teryx products, is that they stand behind their stuff, if the zipper breaks or the material gives out, I'm covered on their fantastic warranty.
