Atom LT Hooded Insulated Jacket
Who needs a multi-tool when you've got the ultra-versatile Arc'teryx Men's Atom LT Hooded Insulated Jacket working just the same? Metaphors aside, you might want to actually bring along a multi-tool (just in case), but for breathable insulation on any and all alpine adventures, you've got the jacket equivalent with this high-performing insulator.
Ski touring, winter hiking, frigid ice climbing routes—the Atom LT can handle it all with a durable and lightweight Tyono fabric exterior, while the DWR (Durable Water Repellent) treatment fends off light rain and snowfall to keep you dry when overcast weather decides to throw a little moisture your way. To bolster its adaptability, the Atom LT is equipped with gusseted underarms and Polartec Power Stretch 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 breathable synthetic insulation not only retains warmth in wet weather, but also offers maximum thermal efficiency without compromising the compressibility of the fibers. A StormHood offers added coverage when your beanie isn't enough, and the adjustable hem provides a personalized, snug fit to keep the cold out.
- An ultra-versatile insulator for all of your cold-weather pursuits
- Coreloft insulation provides breathable warmth for morning touring
- Durable shell has DWR treatment to shed alpine precipitation mixes
- Stretchy side panels help you move on chilly weather climbs
- Fixed hood slides easily over your beanie on windy summits
- Adjustable hem seals in the warmth and shuts out the cold
- Hand pockets give you quick access to energy bars
- Item #ARC00UV

Best mid jacket
I believe that this jacket will be used for back-country skiing, backpacking wear and hiking and will be the best jacket for that purpose. It's versatility is amazing as it accommodates a wide range of conditions.

Favorite Jacket I've owned
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.

Earns all five stars
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!

Quality of jacket is Superior. A must jacket to have.

Gearhead pick for a reason
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!

So why 4 stars and not 5? 4 stars is essentially a grade of a B. So why not an A?

My reluctantly favorite jacket
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.

Great buy, but also a few considerations
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!

Gearhead pick for good reason
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.

Amazing jacket for all around fun. Use it for skiing under a shell and it is very warm but vents well. As an outer layer very versatile. Sharp looking too. My wife saw mine and ended up getting one:)

Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!
I loooove love love this jacket!! It is the perfect jacket for added warm under a shell for a hike or skiing. Or wear it alone. It is a must!!!

Great mild temperature jacket
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.

Stylish, lightweight, and warm.

On my 3rd Atom LT
When the Atom first came out years ago I bought one, and I've been picking up a new one every couple years since. My oldest jacket is still getting used for dog walks. The Atom is great in all conditions (except maybe pouring rain). I've been wearing it under my shell while skiing, fall hikes, PACNW beach trips. You name it, this jacket delivers.

Basically the perfect jacket
I love this. The conifer color is deep and perfect. The light insulation allows for easy layering, although I don't know of he will need that, as it's pretty warm on its own! But dang, does this jacket look good on him.

Loving the jacket!
It's warm, light and packs small. Highly recommend as a mid-layer jacket.

ATOMS ARE THE BEST!!!!
Literally, love this jacket. well insulated for the trail but breathable so you don't overheat and packable enough that when it goes in your pack you don't have to think twice about if you need to bring it.

What size did you buy? I have a similar body type (6 ft 135 lb). Looking for a slim-ish fit for maximum warmth.

Can this jacket work for temperatures 0-20 degrees under a shell?
November 13, 2018
Hey Ben! It really depends on what you're doing and what else you have on. The name of the game is layering and I'd recommend having a merino or some other form of baselayer on at those temperatures. The more you plan on moving around the less you need in terms of layers but if you stop moving, then you lose lots of heat production and such. This jacket is certainly a great start for adventures below freezing, but depending on what you're doing, you'll want more. If you have any other questions or want more clarification, feel free to reach out!
