Atom LT Insulated Vest

The Arc'teryx Atom LT Insulated Vest is designed to preserve core warmth during chilly weather activities without weighing you down. Filled with lightweight synthetic insulation, this vest can be used as a mid-layer to add extra warmth under your shell or as a standalone piece on milder days. Wind- and water-resistant face fabric offers protection from unexpected mountain weather, and stretchy fleece side panels add breathability and mobility during high output activities. A trim fit keeps layering low-bulk and comfortable, also offering a sleek aesthetic that transitions well from mountain to street.

  • Lightweight vest for medium-output activities in chilly weather
  • Coreloft insulation is lightweight and low-profile
  • Stretchy fleece side panels increase mobility and ventilation
  • Wind- and water-resistant shell shields from unexpected storms
  • Trim fit comfortably integrates under other layers
  • Item #ARC00UX

Love this vest! It is very warm without all the puff of some of the other vests out there. The side panels give you some flexibility as well so you're not constricted during more upbeat activities. Buy it. Wear it. Love it. Cheers!

I have previously owned another brands "equivalent" that had to be retired, i decided to upgrade to this fine piece of apparel and i have since had my eyes opened and love the decision. This is very comfortable, not too puffy which is great for layering, and is very clean looking. I can tell a big difference between this and my previous vest. Love it!

I bought this for my husband to layer under his goretex shell. It offers extra warmth without the bulk - the fit is excellent.

I love this vest more than I've ever loved anything. I have 4 vests, all from different outdoor companies, and this is the one I wear most. It's functional, fashionable, and I wish I could afford to buy one in every color.

I used to love Arcteryx because it had a more European fit, and for someone with my build it fit perfectly. I'm 6' 3", 185 lbs with long arms, and I could consistently buy Arcteryx XL and have a perfect trim fit. Now, Arcteryx has gone the way of Patagonia, sizing larger and larger for American chub on the waist. Now almost anything in XL fits in the shoulders and arms but is baggy and sloppy in the torso. In the case of this vest, if I order the x-large it is HUGE on me; but if I order the large it fits well in the shoulders but too sloppy at the waist. And a key flaw of this vest is no drawstring in the waist, so if it's too wide you are stuck with a sloppy fit. This is not an athletic fit at all for anyone who has a slim and athletic build. Probably great if you're carrying around some extra lbs at the waist.

I heard a rumor that they are working on a eurofit vest with a tapered waist. It also has extended armpit guards to stop the stench from wafting about..

I use this vest primarily as an insulation layer over my cycling kit when the air temp drops below 40F. It fits true to size, and in true Arcteryx fashion, is nice to wear both in the backcountry as well as the city.

Weight to warmth ratio, breath ability, pack ability. If you are truly an active person who wants their gear to enhance their out door experience buy this vest. I wear this vest alone or under a shell. Simply put, if there is a vest as versatile as this vest then it's perfect because this vest is nearly perfect. Get away your traditional nylon mid- layer, why have your expensive gortex shell when your nylon jacket is going to trap your perspiration under the shell. This vest is just "smart".

This vest is super comfy. It is pretty thin and doesn't add much bulk under a jacket, but it adds a ton of extra warmth for those bitter cold days

This vest is amazing. I love Arc'teryx's Atom line...so much so that I have the vest, the long-sleeve version, and the long-sleeve hooded version. The vest is lightweight and has a minimalist profile so it's great for layering. It's also good looking enough to wear to work if I want to. The Powerstrech fabric sides make it even more comfortable. Like the review title says, this is my favorite vest of all-time. For sizing help, I'm often between a M and a L depending on the brand. Always a M in Arc'teryx and no different with this vest. M fits perfect. I'm 5'11", 170 lbs.

This is a nice vest. Arcteryx makes quality products. My main use will probably be casual but I wouldn't hesitate to take it hiking in the winter. After reading the reviews, I decided to go with a Medium. For my size, the Medium fits close to the body. I can wear it over a t-shirt/ flannel shirt combo and I can also wear it over a light synthetic base layer/Arcteryx fleece jacket combo (the jacket is similar to the Arcteryx Delta LT Fleece Jacket - mine is an older version but looks to be about the same weight of fleece). With these combos, I have zero extra room in the vest. The fit in the chest feels the closest but it's not pulling the stretch material on the sides of the vest. The waist is spot on. I can run a single finger all the way around the inside hem but that's it. There's no drawcord at the waist so I wanted the fit to be close. Just to be safe, I decided to contact Arcteryx and see how the size Large would compare to the Medium. Here's what I received: Here are the measurements for the Atom LT vest. Medium: Chest Width 113cm Waist Width 107cm Bottom Width 107cm FT Length 69.6cm CB Length 74cm Large: Chest Width 121cm Waist Width 115cm Bottom Width 115cm FT Length 72.4cm CB Length 76.5cm So, essentially, you're picking up a little over 3 inches in the body and about an extra inch in the length. For me, I decided to stick with the Medium. I like the close fit at the hem and I would rather have the vest be a little snug vs. the extra room the Large would provide. I'm ok with the length too but, if your stretched out (say, on a bike), the extra inch of length, on the Large, might be nice. If you're my size, it seems like you could wear either size depending on your preference for fit and desired use. By the way, my jacket size is 42L and my waist is 34 in most pants/shorts. Hope this helps.

OK, for the sake of being honest, I bought the atom vest instead of the jacket for... monetary purposes. turned out to be a great decision because this vest is bomber! keeps your core warm, plenty of flex where you need it, and breath-ability is off the charts. not to mention this vest looks SLICK... great for all occasions, especially when rocking a flannel underneath. From the slopes to main st., this vest doesn't disappoint.

I got this as a gift for Fathers day and my dad keeps telling me how much he uses it. He is an avid golfer so he needs a vest that can keep up with him all season long. I have the LT version and thought that it might be too restricting to golf in since it had sleeves. So when I saw a vest version I had to get it for my dad. This makes a great gift for any man in your life that is looking for a versatile piece that looks good and is comfortable.

My husband has several vests (North Face, Patagonia...) but I got this vest for him for Christmas and its so comfortable and warm he literally naps in it. ; ) I wish I was kidding. My husband is 6'3 230 and wears a XXL. Its slightly fitted but the sides are made with a stretch so its very flattering. I have the women's hooded version and I've hiked, biked and skied in it and its still in perfect condition. Arc'teryx is pricey... but WELL WORTH the investment. I've bought North Face jackets and the black faded and it in some places discolored. Hope that helps!

When asking Mom what to get to Dad for Christmas, the answer I get every year is, "you know your father really likes vests." This year I wanted to get him a vest to put the other vests to shame. Enter the Atom LT. He can wear this vest with a nice collared shirt underneath for a night on the town (Mom likes him looking classy), under a jacket as good insulating layer, or as an outer layer for milder outdoor activties. He is bigger man (6'1", 230 lbs.) and typically wears a 2XL and even with the trim fit design of the Atom LT, it fit him perfectly. Here is what he had to say: "I love my Arcteryx vest. It fits well and keeps me warm. I wear to work and play and it goes well in both situations. I like the length as it goes well below my waistline." Time to throw out some of the other vests in the collection, especially the fleece ones covered in dog hair.

I own the Atom LT Hooded jacket, and since I am absolutely in love with it, I had to get the vest. This is a slimmer fitting vest that works great for high aerobic activities with mild temps where you would find a jacket being too much. It always doubles just as well as an insulating mid layer since the overall volume of the vest is low while still insulating very well. Trail runs, skiing, or just over your favorite flannel, this vest is the way to go.
