From ski resorts to summer camps.
You might zip up the Arc'teryx Men's Atom LT Insulated Jacket all year long because it's so versatile. Coreloft insulation makes this jacket an excellent midlayer for winter skiing, and you can wear it on cold camping trips in the summertime. Polartec's Power Stretch side panels ensure a full range of motion in a breathable fashion, and Arc-teryx coated the durable shell with DWR for water-resistance.

This jacket is the best you can get with a hybrid option. It has Coreloft insulation in the torso, arms and hood. Then the side panels and underarms are Polartec Power Stretch with Hardface Technology, which leads to it being extremely breatheable and mobile. I have used this jacket for camping, climbing, skiing, and nights on the town. It is durable, good looking, and the most versatile jacket on the market. The pockets feature a soft suede like material on the front to keep your hands nice and warm as well. The fit is as expected, and true to size with a slim cut. You need one of these I promise!
the chest of XXL and XL?
I live in southeast Georgia where a majority of the year you can get by with a lightweight jacket. What's the coldest this jacket would be good for? Thanks in advance.
Center back length?

Ever layer one Atom LT over another? Sometimes my LT Hoody isn't enough and I wish it were warmer but still had the side panels to vent during exercise. Horrible idea or work well in anyone's experience? Used to work at Patagonia and we'd always double-down with two down jackets when things got colder. Thanks.
I've worn my Atom AR over my Atom LT for more warmth, but that was just out and about. Found it to be nice. Don't have experience doing that with very active activities, but I have found that it's quite comfortable.
blu - I was just going to suggest that you look into the Atom AR rather than two Atom LTs. The AR has (i think) twice the amount of insulation in the torso as the LT, with less in the sleeves and less still in the hood, but without the LT's Power Stretch Pro underarms. It might be exactly what you are looking for. i hope this helps.
