Atom LT Hooded Insulated Jacket

One of the most versatile jackets you'll ever add to your gear arsenal is the Arc'teryx Women's Atom LT Hooded Insulated Jacket. Wear it by itself from spring to fall on chilly adventures backpacking, climbing, or hiking, and then slide a waterproof shell over it for ski sessions in winter. When worn by itself, the Tyono shell balances wind protection with air permeable comfort so you don't overheat, and the DWR coating sheds light rainfall to help keep you dry. To keep you mobile for athletic movement, Polartec Power Stretch side panels provide a four-way stretch, plus they wick moisture, dry quickly, are durable, and breathe so you can tackle difficult summits without pulling layers off and on the whole time.

  • Versatile jacket for any and all season usage in the outdoors
  • DWR treatment beads and repels moisture for dry comfort
  • Tyono fabric balances wind protection and air permeability
  • Coreloft insulation is lofty, provides warmth even when wet
  • Stretchy fleece side panels allow athletic movement
  • Adjustable StormHood is helmet-compatible for wherever protection
  • Arc'teryx focuses its designs on a simple, less is more philosophy
  • Item #ARCZ97K

I LOVE my Atom LT. I got it as an option for lightweight insulation on hikes and outdoor climbs for when it gets colder out. It keeps me warm without making me overheat, it's crazy lightweight, I can move easily in it, and the hood fits perfectly over a helmet. I will most likely be using this as a midlayer for ski season as well. It is also soooo soft. So far it's been the perfect midlayer/shoulder season jacket. I have muscular shoulders and the medium is a tinyyy bit tight, but not enough that it made me want to size up.

I had the first gen Atom LT purchased in '08/'09. 11+ years later, I am still wearing this jacket. Been through EVERYTHING. Backpacking, mountain biking, lounging every night, international travel, oceans, mountains...I wore it practically every day with barely any wear. I loved it so much, I sold at least 15-20 of my closest friends and family on this jacket. However 7-8 years in, over time the jacket insulation did start getting too thin to keep this lady warm and I had to get a small zipper malfunction fixed. So, I decided to replace it over time with two more Atom LT's -- one in 2016 and one in 2018. BOTH had the same issues develop in less than a month wearing them. First issue: the cuff opened a hole near the thumb area -- on BOTH jackets in the same amount of time. Never happened to my first Atom. Second, the material Arcteryx start using wears much faster -- it pills up ever so slightly and shows it/looks worn (gross). One of these also melted on the bottom edge being nearby a fire which was never an issue with my first one even though I'd camp many times. Definitely a lesser material then what Arcteryx used to use. Now 2020...I'm trying the new revised Atom. We'll see how it turns out. I'm hopeful it will be better than my last two, but doubtful it will come close to the performance of my first one. Three stars out of five.

This is the third jacket I have purchased since 2011. It is by far my favorite jacket, especially for cool evenings and during the winter season. I purchased my most recent jacket specifically for the bright color to attract attention on my outdoor walks. You won’t be disappointed.

I really like how this jacket fit and how warm yet thin the material is. This would have been perfect for hiking as it is incredibly light and packable and has sleeves that secure around the wrists. However, there is no lining and the material felt too much like crinkly plastic against my skin which combined with its lack of breathability honestly made me feel like a walking bag of chips. Super bummed hoping I can find a jacket from this company that has a softer interior.

I am in love with this jacket. I chose to get the black Atom to be more versatile through the years and I'm happy I did. I've used this jacket as a mid-layer for cold snowboarding days, and then dressed it up with a nice scarf when I'm out and about. It's decently warm on it's own, which is super nice - I've worn it when temperatures are fairly low, but not below freezing. I love it. I feel bad for my other jackets because this is turning into my favorite.

This is my first Arc'teryx Jacket and I am happy with it so far. I am usually a small but I sized up to layer underneath and the medium fits great. It is a great midlayer that seem breathable and the fit is flattering. It is soft and comfortable and I think it'll be a staple for outdoor activities in the Spring/Fall and under my shell for skiing in the Winter.

I was surprised that this fit pretty flawlessly. Normally as a petite 5'3 something is always a little too long. but the sleeve were great and the length hit the hip great! Definitely a light jacket but it would absolutely be great for layering. I have a dog and I dragged it around the desert and it held up pretty good.

Yes, it's a great jacket, but the old version with stretchy side panels was superior. The cut was more versatile, and with the stretch panels, it was easy to layer up underneath (but then fitting better without layers underneath). The new version has stiff side panels and a smaller cut. It's shorter and tighter across the bust/shoulders. Can't layer underneath unless you size up. I'm majorly bummed with this redesign because the old version was truly GOAT. Sad I lost my old one (which was showing no wear despite being worn all winter for 4 years).

This jacket has worked its way into becoming a classic mid-layer. And, it's still as good as ever, if not better! It has a minimalist fit and weight, so perfect to not only layer in the outdoors, but lends itself to being a comfortable indoor piece in the winter. The other cool part of this piece is it's breathability. It will wick the sweat you kick up, hauling yourself up a mountain, while also keeping you warm. It's pretty dang magical. I'm normally a medium and this is spot on. It's actually even flattering, which is always a win in my book.

Always thought Arcteryx was too expensive but this jacket is worth it. Light, warm--what more can you ask for. Wore it on Elbrus summit as midlayer and couldn't have been happier. Around camp at 4000 mtrs it was all I needed. Can't wait to wear it this winter.

I bought an Atom LT for myself last fall. It is my favorite jacket that I own, and I have A Lot of jackets. I barely even wore my favorite leather jackets all winter. I live in Mississippi, and this jacket basically got me through the entire winter, except on the coldest days. I wore this in 40 degree weather all the time. It is super light weight, warm, and terribly soft and puffy. It's also very easy to move in, shoulders are nicely articulated, and the side panels are nicely stretchy. The pockets are well sized, and I love having a breast pocket like guys always get. It's seriously like walking around in a sleeping bag, and it's the best. I love the hood, too. My ears are so happy to be warm. I think I look ridiculous with it on, but I don't even care. Warm ears for life. I loved it so much I bought one for my mom. She also loves it. She did size up to an XL to get room for extra layers. I wear a size small, and it is perfect. After a full season of wear, it looks like it's in mint condition. I look forward to wearing it for a long, long time.

I bought it in a Medium, thinking it would fit my 5'11" frame, but the shoulders weren't wide enough and the torso wasn't long enough for my tall frame. I sadly had to return it :( On goes the search for the non-manly jacket that fits my tall but womanly shape. I really wish it fit because I loved it otherwise!

I bought this jacket after having this brand and style of hoodie suggested to me a bunch. I find the performance/athletic fit is not exactly what I was hoping for but when it comes to functionality in the mountains, it would definitely be my go-to layer now. I'm usually a S/M - more on the Medium end, but I fluctuate enough that I wasn't sure - and I'm happy I bought the Medium. I've layered underneath it with my Melenzana hoodie, wool layers, and T-shirts. it's very warm and it also does surprisingly well in wet conditions. I got caught in a downpour the other day and it beaded for a while, repelling the rain, then it dried out nice and quick! Overall, very impressed with this jacket. I wasn't convinced when I first tried it on, but it's quickly becoming a favorite layer!

I love almost everything about this jacket except for the seam placements on the shoulders and bust. In my opinion, these types of jackets look best with rounded shoulders (no seam) to provide a good universal fit and a seam over the bust that rounds down instead of straight or up. (The Patagonia Nano-Air is an example of that design.) Instead, this jacket accentuates my broad shoulders and busty-ness with seam placement -- not in a flattering way. Also, I usually wear size Small in jackets but I had to size up to a Medium to feel remotely comfortable around the bust and waist (which then made the arms bulkier up top than I preferred and added to the linebacker look.) My bust measures 35" which is technically at the top end of size Small, but the rest of me is well within Small. It's very very close to being a perfect jacket but not quite for me due to a few design details. I DO love the color selection -- more deep, rich colors like Crimson and Shorepine please!

I cannot say enough great things about this jacket. I have been looking for a midweight piece to wear during winter here in WA and this jacket does it all. I am busty up top so did size up from my usual L to an XL which does make it a bit larger in the waist and hips but the side elastic tab helps to tighten it, which makes it easier to layer underneath as well. Otherwise, it runs true to size. The cut and comfort are great as the side panels allow room for stretch and to move. I wear this hiking all the time and usually have to take it off because I get too warm with it. On casual walks outside, wearing a sweatshirt or fleece underneath when it's 30 is perfect. People have complained about the fact that the zipper does release and come down on its own, but it was designed to do that. If you're larger up top, it may do that more often, but I get around that by just zipping it up past the breasts. It's easy to clean, breathable, SO comfortable, and doesn't make me look like a linebacker like a lot of those "puffy" jackets would. As always, Arc'teryx makes top quality products and the price is worth it. Will definitely be buying more of them. PS pocket sizes are great and warm, the cuffs are a bit tight, but is only a problem in that they require effort to get them over a smart watch/bracelet. Hood size is also perfect and lays flat when not up.

I've searched high and low for a mid layer and I've finally found my match. The jacket has a very premium feel to it and fits amazing. It's the perfect weight for layering or as stand-alone jacket when doing a high output activity. I couldn't be happier with this purchase!
