Aimee A.wrote a review of Arc'teryx Atom SL Hooded Jacket - Women's on April 25, 2018
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I live in Southern Arizona where the temperatures range from 10F to 105F. This jacket has become my favorite for a number of activities. I've worn it casually (it has a lovely shape and a clean style), hiking, backpacking, and horseback riding. I love that it packs up so small I can fit it in a hydration pack or even a small purse. It cuts the wind really well and sheds rain beautifully too. It's listed as a Trim Fit, but will fit over a sweater or thick shirt well. It is not a winter coat, but works well as a mid layer in cold weather, or as the perfect outer layer for high activity in cold weather. The curved hem on the sleeves is a really nice touch as it covers the back of your hand nicely. The fabric is resistant to dirt and liquids and launders really well. I am short, with an athletic build, wear a 36B bra, and the XS fits perfectly with room in the pockets for my iPhone 8 Plus. The pockets are set high enough to not interfere with the waist belt on my hydration pack or backpack. I purchased the Astral Aura which is a beautiful dark-ish purple on the blue side.
