    Strategic warmth.

    Though Arc'teryx named it after a radioactive element with a half-life of 10.45 million years, the Women's Thorium AR Hooded Down Jacket isn't, thank goodness, radioactive; however, it does slow your decay in cold weather to give you an outdoor half-life longer than 10.45 seconds. Crafted with a combination of 750-fill European goose down and strategically placed synthetic insulation, this jacket keeps you warm whether you wear it on its own during your chilly backpacking trips or under a hardshell whilst perusing some secret powder stashes.

    Down is a mix of feathers and clusters that work cooperatively to create insulating air pockets, trapping warmth and preventing cold air from passing. The Thorium's Coreloft synthetic insulation works the same way, creating an air-pocket barricade, but with one substantial difference: wet down doesn't retain heat. To ensure warmth when wearing the jacket, Arc'teryx strategically placed Coreloft synthetic insulation in high-moisture areas such as the hood, cuffs, and under the arms so you can stay warmer longer. The 750 down fill body of the jacket is protected from exterior moistures like rain from the DWR treatment that beads and repels light moisture.

    Technical bells and whistles are fun, but when it's all said and done, you want a down jacket that will handle the rigors of daily abuse, precisely why Arc'teryx opts for ripstop Colibri as the face fabric. So whether you hike year-round, ski in and out of bounds, or schlep from the dorm to class on inclement days when your fellow classmates bury themselves in bed, the Thorium AR hoodie is there keeping you warm and protected from the elements.

    • Down jacket for cozy warmth on particularly cold days
    • DWR treatment on face fabric beads and repels light moisture
    • Strategically placed Coreloft insulation retains heat in moisture
    • 750 down fill in body of jacket provides high quality warmth
    • Insulated StormHood provides efficient thermal performance
    • Elastic cuffs seal out the elements and provide a snug fit
    • Jacket packs easily into stuff sack the size of a waterbottle
    • Regular fit allows for comfortable layering in colder temperatures
    • Item #ARC00TR

    Warm and fluffy but flattering!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'2"
    • Weight: 145lbs

    I love this puffy jacket! Arcteryx knocked it out of the ballpark with this one. It is light and packable, comes with an inside pocket with a pouch to stuff itself into and the material is really strong and sturdy and keeps all the down in its place. I was very comfortable in it even as the temperature starts to go up mid-day. If you are looking for a light puffy jacket this one is it! Worth every penny. Sleeves may be a bit long but it contributed to the cells being bunched up a bit more and kept me even warmer!

    Gave as a gift!

    Gave this as a gift and they has this to say " this is my first Arc'teryx jacket and I am not disapointed! Keeps me warm but I don't overheat. Super light and comfortable as well!

    Slimming fit for a down jacket!

    I was surprised by the warmth and comfort for a 750 fill jacket, but I was also impressed with how well this jacket fitted! I ordered a size small and it fit well without a layer, as well with a fleece sweater under. If you're looking for a slimming, super warm jacket, this is the one for you!

    Warm jacket, great fit

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    This is a very warm (well insulated) jacket with an excellent fit that isn't overly bulky. With long arms and torso the small hit just below the wrist and mid buttock. The fit runs slim so there is no draft with movement but still able to wear a sweatshirt underneath.

    Love this jacket!

    I've been eyeing this jacket for awhile & finally decided to get it this winter. I love it! It fits well, looks great & is WARM!

    Warmth and style

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: SMALL
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 120lbs

    I have had this jacket for 3 years and I love it! It is the best puffy I have ever owned, I've been rough with it and it has yet to show any signs of wear. WOW. It is warm enough for a weekend climbing and camping and still stylish enough to wear into work. It won't hold on to smells which Is nice because who wants to smell the campfire from last weekend while running boring life errands? Also It packs down SMALL in an additional pouch,I wish that the pouch was attached as I am afraid I will loose it one day, but 3 years later and I still have it.

    Warmth and style

    Warmth you can't beat

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    This down puffy is the real deal, the thorium line from Arc'teryx is their warmest down jacket series. Being the AR model it means that this is the best jacket for all around use.
    Wearing this around the town it will keep you warm, and on the mountian it will do the same. I love how big he hood is, you can put it right over a helmet if you need to, and the very high collar provides some protection from the elements for your face.
    I'd recommend this jacket to anyone looking for a really warm, comfy, jacket that can be used for a variety of activities.

    Wore it all through the winter

    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'3"
    • Weight: 110lbs

    I bought this jacket in the beginning of winter, and I love it. I live in Ohio and it gets cold, but this jacket kept me warm on my walk to school each day. I brought this with me up Mt. Washington, and while I (thankfully) didn't end up needing it, it did make a good pillow (we arrived at night and slept in a shelter). This jacket packs down small and is the warmest jacket I've ever owned.

    The fit was a bit weird for me. I'm 5'3" and 110 lbs, so I got a size small. It fits, but drafts tend to come up if I wear just a t-shirt underneath. If I wear a thin fleece then I am extremely comfortable. It also fits well underneath my shell.

    I would definitely recommend this if you live somewhere cold. I am a baby about the cold, but this jacket made my winter easy.

    Got it; returned it

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small

    This jacket is the size of a fleece. It is not at all what I envisioned as a "down jacket" (the operative word being JACKET - you know, like a PARKA that keeps you warm). Before buying it, I consulted with a helpful but misguided Gearhead who totally gave me the wrong info. In stores, I had tried on three different brands of REAL down jackets, each of which was a size small or 2-4, and they fit comfortably with a heavy fleece underneath. I told the Gearhead that I get cold really, really easily and that I needed a jacket that I could put a heavy fleece underneath. Well, either my size ballooned incredibly over the past month, or else I received some other product, although the tag said "down HOODY" - is that the same thing as a down JACKET?). I could barely zip it up, so there's no way I could fit anything underneath it, let alone a heavy fleece. (And I provided my height and weight to the Gearhead.) Anyway, I tried it on and immediately packed it back up and returned via UPS, although they won't receive my return until later this week. Plus, it didn't even feel remotely warm - very thin and light. So I am giving up and just paying to replace the zipper on my REAL, WARM 15-year-old down jacket (size 2). Very, very disappointed. I bought my daughter a NF jacket a few months ago, and it was a real, bona fide, true-to-life, true-to-fit down JACKET, so there's something weird with the Arc'teryx sizing or description. This jacket would never get me through the Winter From H*** we're having here..

    Great product and great service

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

    This jacket is perfection! Some mentioned that it wasn't warm enough as a stand-alone jacket, but I disagree! I find it perfectly warm on an average VT winter day, and when the temp has dropped below zero (-15 one day last week!) I can layer under it and stay so toasty. The fit is extremely flattering, without the typical bulk of a down jacket. I have worn it on my daily walk to and from work, I have worn it on my morning run in sub-zero temps, and I've skied in it, all with great results. Also, I was very pleased with the service I received from Backcountry. I emailed with someone named Emily at Backcountry when I ordered the jacket, as I was worried that the small might not fit, and that I might want a medium instead. I was curious to know about the return policy, and she went a step above and beyond, by holding a size medium for me, in case I needed it. Once the jacket arrived, the fit was perfect, so no need for Emily to send the Medium, but what a nice thing to offer! I'm completely impressed with this product and with the service I received from Backcountry.com!

    Ideal hooded down jacket

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

    I over-researched all of the available hooded down jackets after losing my old Patagonia micro-puff hoody. I eventually bought the Patagonia nano-puff hoody (because the micro-puff is discontinued) and was hugely disappointed. I could not justify spending so much money on a jacket that felt like it skipped the insulation part of the manufacturing assembly line. It was deflated and sad looking, and I promptly returned it. I own a Patagonia down sweater, which is great, but isn't really that flattering/cute. Then I came across this Arc'teryx Thorium AR. For virtually the same price as the others, this coat is WAY warmer, has a longer back, and is just plain cuter on. While I originally wanted synthetic insulation (like the nano-puff) for water-resilience, I decided I wanted the Thorium (which has real down and some synthetic) for warmth even more. I also like the hood better on the Thorium, and I love how high the front zips up (great for bike commuting on a cold day in Colorado). My only complaint is that the Thorium's sleeves are slightly too short on me (I have very long arms). I usually wear a size 6 or 8 and I settled on a medium. No regrets.


    Edit after 3 months: I have just noticed that the zipper now pulls down on its own, with very little prompting. Super annoying. For example, every time I put on my cross-body bag to bike, it pulls down the zipper (all the way) without me even noticing. This did not seem to be an issue at first. Going to contact Artc-teryx about this to see about replacement.

    OBSESSED with the Lime Fizz!

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

    I mainly purchased this jacket for the green color. It is true to the color pictured, and it is perfect! It doesn't have a shine to it like a lot of down jackets do, which I like it matte a lot better. The zippers are a soft light blue, which gives a nice accent color.



    This jacket is so comfortable, and I can wear it anywhere! Super casual, but can be dressed up as well. It is a great layering piece or perfect alone too. I seriously wear this all the time. I purchased it in the summer, and could not wait for colder temps to come! (but what else is new?)



    This jacket is VERY warm, you could probably wear it in the teen's and still be warm (depending on how you personally run temperature wise.) I would recommend this jacket to anyone, you can't go wrong with it!

    She won't stop wearing it

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

    My wife has some longer TNF and a nice enough Marmot light down jacket, but this Arc'Teryx one pretty much retired them all. The quality and fit you would expect from Arc'Teryx, nothing you don't need. She loves the tapered cut and a bit of extra length in back and in the arms. It is definitely worth the extra money to get one of these.

    Serves its purpose

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    I originally bought the Patagonia Nanopuff and hated it. Thought Id give this one a try and got it on sale. Its maybe an inch shorter than the patagonia one but fits great in the shoulders and arms for me (i got a medium 5'5 140 athletic build). Definately not a cold weather stand-alone jacket but for my coastal Oregon winters it is perfect. Would be a great cold weather layer too. The hood is a technical hood- i only wish the stuff sack was in a chest pocket (which this jacket does not have) but it wasnt a dealbreaker for me.

    She loves it

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Bought as a gift, she really liked it, especially the fit and warmth. When I asked her to sum up her feelings on the jacket in one word she responded with "Perfect."

    The down jacket I've been searching for!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    I've been looking for an every day down jacket that I can throw on over a t-shirt and stay toasty. This jacket is it!



    It's lightweight, and out of all the down jackets I've tried on the most flattering. It's hourglass from the front, and it's fitted in the small of your back. The end result? You don't look like a giant marshmallow.



    The other win for me was the finish. I ordered the black and the color is matte. Other shinier jackets I saw gave off the impression of a garbage bag.



    For size reference I'm 5'3 and 135 lbs. I ordered the small and it fit perfectly.



    All in all, I'm very satisfied with this purchase.

    Hourglass fit

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size

    Beautiful color and jacket by a great company but what's described as an "athletic" fit is really more of an hourglass fit. I was looking for a down jacket I could put a few layers underneath but this jacket synched in at the waist then A-line fit over the hips. Nice jacket just not the shape I wanted.
