    Thorium AR Hooded Down Jacket

    Say hello to your new go-to piece for all your mountain activities, the Arc'teryx Thorium AR Hooded Down Jacket. This generalist down jacket functions well as a standalone option when hiking in cool, dry conditions, and it's also an excellent choice for layering under a shell when you need extra warmth during frigid backcountry ski tours or alpine ascents.

    Its 750-fill down insulation is lightweight, yet very warm, and it's highly compressible for comfortable layering and easy storage when you don't need it. Synthetic insulation is strategically placed in areas that are more exposed to the elements, so that you still stay warm even if the insulation in those areas gets a little damp. The outer fabric also sports a DWR coating to repel light rain and snow, just in case you get caught out in a drizzle without an outer shell, and it's highly abrasion-resistant for peace of mind. Low-profile, elasticized cuffs and an adjustable drawcord hem seal out the cold, and an internal zippered pocket doubles as a stuff sack so you can efficiently stow the jacket in your pack if it starts to warm up halfway through your adventure.

    • Down insulator designed for cool, dry alpine conditions
    • 750-fill down is light, lofty, and compressible
    • Synthetic insulation in hood and sleeves to stay warm when wet
    • Arato nylon shell with DWR to shed raindrops and snowflakes
    • Adjustments at hem and StormHood maintain a secure fit
    • Includes 2.5L stuff sack for convenient storage
    • Item #ARC00TQ

    My dad is hiking Mt Kilimanjaro, and wanted to ensure he had a down jacket that kept him warm all night long during the ascent!

    Chatted with my Gearhead, Emily Brown, and she couldn't recommend this jacket enough!

    AMAZING

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This jacket is close to perfect! I wanted something for everyday use that wasn't going to be very bulky but still keep my warm. This jacket fits me great, I am 5'8 170.

    I love the hood, it snugs up nicely when zipped all the way up but I can still wear a headlamp with out an issue. I would highly recommend this piece!

    Very close to perfect

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 220lbs

    Great length, True to Arc'teryx size for me (XL for 46L jacket, 38" waist), perfectly warm in breezy windy teens over LS 150 merino baselayer and not too hot when it's up to 40. Perfect under a shell when it's colder or wet. Great length. Only niggle is no adjustment on hood. It fits well, but an adjustment to snug the hood around the crown of the head would make it perfect. Packs nice and small, about Nalgene size, and very low weight.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

    Please don't ever change this jacket Arc'teryx! Absolutely love it. It is great for a night around Park City or out on the trail snowshoeing with the family. Perfectly lightweight, super warm, great fit and love the hood. You aren't going to find a better down jacket out there to do it all!

    Great for everything

    This is my favorite down jacket from Arc'teryx for many reasons, first is the quality of down they use, it is a 750 fill euro goose down so the best of the best. In addition to great down insulation it also features coreloft insulation that will ensure that you stay warm even if the down gets soaking wet.
    If you are looking for a down to do it all, look no further. This is the jacket that is recommended for around town use, as well as for skiing, snowboarding, ice climbing, or whatever your passion. It fits true to size for Arc'teryx, with articulated arms for a comfy fit.

    Warm!!!!!!!!!!!

    This jacket is awesome for every part of winter! I recommend getting a size larger than normal they fit really snug. I rock mine in the cold winter here in Italy and it does an awesome job on keeping me toasty. It is super light weight and packs down to almost nothing.

    Warmth without weight

    This is my first Arc'teryx purchase, I was considering a The North Face jacket and decided on this jacket after chatting with a Back Country rep. Although I reside in a high desert city, it still gets cold and occasionally it snows. My LL Bean Maine Wardens coat is too heavy and bulky, this jacket is perfect. I am able to layer with a fleece jacket when the temperature dips below 32 degrees for added warmth. I am very pleased with my purchase and with my Back Country experience.

    Warm enough for the beautiful places

    I bought this jacket as a gift for a good friend who works bell service at a hotel in Sun Valley, ID at 5900 elevation. He stands outside a lot greeting customers so he needed a jacket that would be warm enough to keep him warm while stationary and versatile enough to keep him comfortable while moving heavy luggage and running around. This jacket has exceeded our expectations.



    We've determined the temperature range for this jacket is minimum -3F to a more comfortable 40F with the sweet spot being between 15F to 30F. It has been snowing quite a bit in Idaho this season and the DWR treated down creates some water resistance for when he gets caught out in a light snow storm.



    He also uses this jacket under a waterproof shell while skiing. Any cold winds that the outer shell lets through the Arc'teryx Thorium AR absorbs. It has a nice athletic fit that is super easy to move around in and extremely light weight.



    Arc'teryx makes great technical gear.

    Great coat!

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    Fits perfectly, is super light, and very warm. Both from a fit and functionality perspective, it is one of the best coats I have ever purchased!

    So cozy!

    This is an outstanding jacket. The fit is really nice. The length hits just at the top of my hip, and the sleeves are articulated which gives them a more contoured fit. I also love how high the collar sits. Pull the hood up, zip the collar up, and you'll stay nice and toasty warm.

    I've used this Jacket on its own and under my Mountain Hardwear Shell. In both cases it works very well and keeps in the heat.

    I haven't had any fill loss yet. But if I do, I'll follow the Arcteryx care guide instructions.

    Warm for the cold winter weather.

    This jacket is amazing. It blocks the cold burst of winds while I walk my dog on those cold frosty mornings. Very well insulated as it creates a nice warm pocket of air between you and the jacket. Zip down the pockets and stick your hands into toastyness! Who needs gloves when you have these pockets ? It's also super comfortable and I like the elastic bands on the wrist to keep air from coming in Overall very warm and comfy.

    Close, but adjustment hickups

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I have the 2014 in a medium. Fit was great - I'm 185, 5'11", ~40 chest, 33 waist. It has a drop tail, fit under a shell in puffiness and in length. Wrist elastic is sized well for my large hands and wrists. Hood fits with OR without helmet. With a helmet, all zipped up, the collar comes up to under my nose. Perfect.



    However without a helmet, the elastic hood isn't great. I think it handles cold, but I get snowdrift blown down my back and neck all the time. Lame. Needs the adjustment the Cerium SL has.



    The waist cinch on mine was terrible. But the Cerium SL didn't have this... maybe because it sucked. Most jackets have one or two pulls, and a light yank seals you up from drafts. This thing feels like I'm going to tear or break something, and needs a lot of pull for a little cinch.



    I really like the coreloft. But when I climb, I stuff my gloves in my shell to stay warm and keep pushing moisture through their goretex layer. That means I always have a flat spot of wet down on my stomach or my ribs. Coreloft here would be great.



    Or Arcteryx, why don't you offer this thing with water-resistant down like everyone else figured out? Then I would be forced to buy this thing again, supposing it had an adjustable hood and better waist. Argh.



    I really liked the weight. Nice, heavier midlayer. They didn't waste grams here, so it's just warmer.



    Oh, except with the separate stuff sack. They could have made a packable pocket, which I would really prefer...



    And dang, I forgot it leaks down for the first five months. The Cerium doesn't seem to do that, but it's a light fabric, so that doesn't quite compute...

    Close, but adjustment hickups

    Great Jacket

    I bought this jacket for my husband. He loves it. He likes the light weight. Keeps you very warm. He wears it for hunting and camping.

    Light but strong

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Im 6'4 207lbs have a 43 chest and 36 waist and the XL fits great! I got the olympus blue and it looks cooler than the pictures. Its a darker shade of blue with even darker blue shoulders and wrists. I forget its on because it is so comfy and light. I usually wear MH but I really like the Thorium.

    Light but powerful; exceeded expectation

    • Fit: True to size

    I generally don't review stuff, but this jacket was so impressive I thought I should log in and tell you about it. I bought it for a climb up Mount Hood, thinking it would be a nice layer under my shell. To my surprise, it blocked the wind so thoroughly that I hardly had to use my shell at all. The sleeves are nice and long, so there isn't that lame gap between sleeves and gloves. It also fit well over my climbing helmet, which surprised me.

    Since it hardly weighs anything, I threw it in my backpack for a later multi-day hike in warmer temperatures, then just wore it at night when the temps fell. Its warmth/weight ratio makes it a fantastic jacket.

    In general, it is comfortable and looks pretty good.

    One caveat: the blue and yellow versions both have slightly different coloration on the shoulders and at the end of the sleeves (look carefully at the picture). I originally ordered the blue but thought the sleeves looked weird. Backcountry made the swap to a black easy, so I'm still totally satisfied.

    Cold... not anymore !
