Atom LT Hooded Insulated Jacket

The Arc'teryx Atom LT Hooded Insulated Jacket is constructed with a durable, breathable, and lightweight Tyono exterior, while the DWR treatment fends off light rainfall. To bolster its adaptability, the Atom LT is equipped with gusseted underarms and Power Stretch fleece side panels to ensure an unimpeded range of motion whether you're wearing it as a midlayer or an external shell. Perhaps most importantly, though, is the Atom LT's synthetic Coreloft insulation. This synthetic insulation not only retains warmth in wet weather, but also offers maximum thermal efficiency without compromising the compressibility of the fibers. A StormHood slides over helmets with ease, and the adjustable hem provides a personalized, snug fit should you desire it.

  • Versatile, highly adaptive jacket for all aerobic activities
  • Tyono exterior is durable and wind-resistant for protection
  • DWR treatment sheds light moisture easily
  • Coreloft insulation keeps you warm even when wet
  • Stretch side panels promote unobstructed mobility
  • Articulated elbows and gusseted underarm bolster comfort
  • Helmet-compatible hood is insulated for added warmth
  • Adjustable hem provides a personalized fit and feel

Hits How A Midweight Jacket Should

Me: 5'7, 135lb, size small in about anything, trail/ultra runner. I received this Atom LT Hooded Jacket as a tester product from Backcountry, though, these opinions are my own and not sugar coated. I've used this jacket on about 20 evenings in the Sawatch range of Colorado in a fair mix of camping, MTB, hiking, and trail running. Weather during use has ranged about 35-60 (it is August!) degrees so far, with dry conditions. In the past I've used down jackets from The North Face and Merrill, both size small. The Atom LT Insulated Jacket fits comparably to those brands and is otherwise a true small fit. It is not a dead-of-winter high alpine heavy jacket, but I can see an optimal range being about 35F to 10F, and even lower if using a hard shell. For a midweight jacket, it delivers what I demand of it. The Arcteryx Atom LT Hoodie was noticeably different as soon as I picked it up. It is not the typical down feather puffy, but a continual layer of a lightweight and lofty Cofeloft that is also arguably lighter than a comparable down jacket. From my use so far, thermal quality is equal to that of my typical 800 down jackets. The outer layer is very thin; comparable to the thickness of a tent. Then comes the insulation, maybe 3-5mm thick. You could almost think of it like the feeling of flannel completely wrapped inside a jacket shell. I've got the Squid Ink color. It is proper purple! (But I'm surprised with how good it looks as the first piece of purple attire I've ever owned.) It is August, and the middle of a drought, so admittedly my only exposure to water in this jacket was in the shower. No kidding! The jacket is not waterproof (and it doesn't claim to be), but light rain will fall off the jacket without permeating it. Heavy or prolonged rain does soak in, as expected, BUT, what is sweet about the Coreloft is that it is balanced and does not retain much water as down. Instead of having pockets of trapped water in a down jacket, the jacket still wears very evenly, and doesn't accumulate as much weight. I would opt for this before a down jacket in wet weather. The insulation material is impressive. The wrist cuffs are a thin poly type material that are stretchy enough to pull around a glove and comfortably get hand through. There is a drawstring at the waist to dial in a good fit. Inside the jacket on the left chest is a auxiliary zipper pocket to stash a phone, ski pass, wallet, etc. I really like that the jacket/zipper easily zips up past my nose. There is generous face coverage from the zipper and hood. The hood has a drawstring on the interior that allows it to draw skin tight and has a supportive "bill" on it to keep it from blowing in the wind. The hood is very well designed and has no problem in wind keeping my face/ears warm and staying on the top of my head! I have been able to roll this up into roughly the size of a can of Pringles - just a bit more in diameter - and keep it in a 18L running pack, complete with my other gear for a long day out. It is plenty packable for what it is. Overall, I am very impressed with this jacket. I would give a 5 star here, with my favorite features being the lightweight material and ability to shed away water. Though I received this as a test product, I certainly see it going into my everyday-use gear quiver.

Me:

Very thorough review, but I have a couple of questions. Breathability - when hiking, biking, etc., does it breather well or does it leave you with a clammy feeling as many synthetics often do? "Toughness" - for lack of a better word, how well would this handle tree branch snags or rubbing up against rocks and such?

Robert, I find that the Atom LT is breathable but its not impressively so in high output activities like ice climbing. It’s easily one of my favorite pieces but if breathability is your Primary concern the Patagonia Nano Air May be a better choice

I bought this to replace my nano puff for skiing days when there is no weather forecasted though it does repel light snow. Packs down nicely and almost feels like you are wearing nothing. My only gripe would be the sizing since I typically wear a medium but the medium in the Atom really leaves no room for layering but if you are using it during other seasons probably be okay. The large allows for a vest and capilene which is perfect for Colorado weather. I do recommend this jacket but if you fall in between sizing I would go with the large

Great feel, super light, packs down small, warm enough on its own, and layers super well. What more could you want... I have had a few threads get snagged, but not too big of a deal. I will definitely buy another in the future.

Full disclosure: I'm an Arcteryx fanboy. I knew that I was going to like the Atom, but it has still managed to surpass my expectations. It weighs close to nothing and keeps me warmer than some of the much bulkier, entry-level insulated jackets that I've had in the past. The fit is absolutely spot on, and it has the best zipper I've ever used. Do yourself a favor and snag one!

Gearheads and outdoor enthusiasts alike love this jacket as you can tell by the many many reviews below this one. I use this as my mid-layer when skiing, and I'm kept super warm. The texture of the shell, the softness of the inside, the insulation level... Everything is truly perfect. My favorite feature (though a small thing) is the wrists. The small elastic bands that hold onto your wrists to make sure the sleeves don't hike up your arm, and keep the snow out of your sleeves. Comfortable enough and versatile enough to wear off the mountain too!

Full disclosure, I mostly bought this jacket for the logo and because I really respect Arc'teryx's shells. It's a great jacket but falls a little short of what I wanted it to do, I think overall it's great but a few considerations and room for improvement. Furthermore, I know some of my complaints could be addressed by just buying the Atom AR, but that's a little out of my comfortable price range. Sizing info: I bought the XL so I could layer. 6' 210lbs, I have a definite dad bod edging on the side of fat. It fits perfect. My gripes: It's not really THAT warm. I would definitely say my nano puff is warmer however the Atom's hood is great. There's a few missing features that would elevate this jacket, such as fleece lined neck, more waterproof material. Also, I have some concerns about the longevity of this jacket: It doesn't have stitched baffles or ripstop material. This jacket has absolutely no waterproofing or DWR properties. The good: I love the look, especially the high neck and how it looks zipped up. The logo is prominent and reflective. With a t shirt and very light chinos (lululemon abc) I was very warm in 40F weather, which I guess is average for any puffy. Overall conclusion: Do you like subtle but flashy clothing? Is lack of waterproofing ok? Will you be fine with needing to layer below 40F? Personally, I don't think $260 is a good price for this jacket, but getting it on sale for $180 I'm fine with it.

I did a lot of research and thought long and hard about which insulated jacket I should have bought. Ultimately I settled on this one. My few concerns with it were breathability, durability, and warmth. I've taken this on six backpacking trips in the span of a couple months in Alaska, Washington, and Glacier through some pretty rugged terrain. In terms of durability, I've been extremely impressed. No snagging, no seams ripping or zippers breaking. I have nothing to report on this. I will say that I am always careful with it and try not to rub against anything when I'm wearing it. But it's proven pretty durable. I also have had no problem with the elastic wrist cuffs -- I think they're great. It's extremely comfortable. I frequently wear it in my sleeping bag for sleeping. I also think it fits well and is stylish. In terms of breathability and warmth, I think it really differs for each person and their preference. I will say that although I have a lot of experience in the cold, I tend to run pretty cold and have always needed ample warmth. It's perfect for bringing on a day hike - even if you're summiting peaks and will be in high winds. Even in the low forties exposed on peaks it's warm enough for putting on during breaks and it cuts the wind well. I however find that it's not warm enough for lounging around at a campsight outside when it's in the mid forties and below (recognize I also get cold easy). I get cold in it even with a thermal underneath and a good rainjacket over. I carry a Patagonia Classic Snap-T Pullover that I put over the Arcteryx and that has done the trick. But if you want to only travel with this jacket as your primary source of insulation, I think you would need to go a little warmer, especially if you're in alpine or fall conditions were temps are between 30-45 degrees. It's fairly breathable and it would be perfect for moderate hiking or walking. I do sweat out of it fairly easily if I'm going hard up slopes if it's not extremely cold. It's decently waterproof although it will soak through in rain after a couple minutes. Even wet though, it provides good insulation. Hope that helps!

This jacket is awesome! I love the fit of all arcteryx jackets, I am pretty slim and the cut has always been great on their stuff. This jacket is warm, compressible, and is definitely one of my go to jackets for everyday outings to technical endeavors.

One of my better outdoor gear purchases. Hood adds a lot of warm. Don't worry if I forgot my hat. Very lightweight and compressible, I think over 45 degrees maybe too warm with exercise/moving. I don't use any layering underneath, just a light synthetic shirt. I am about 170 lbs and the large fits perfectly. medium would be too tight.

So far so good. I picked up the Atom LT a little bit leary, as I live in Northern Michigan and we have snow and cold weather about 4-6 months each year. I need to layer a little under it, should be fine with a long sleeve shirt in spring/fall type weather, and I was perfectly warm with a hoodie underneath in below freezing temps. Its a good looking jacket with a nice fit.

This is just the jacket I was looking for. The jacket is good for standing around in 50 degree F weather with a light breeze or actively biking when it's 35 degrees out. If you add a base layer and vest underneath, you can take the temperature down to around 20 - 25 F and be comfortable on a bike.
