Familiarity: I've used it several times

This glove is almost perfect for my needs. I wanted a slimmer glove that provided some dexterity, but was still waterproof and had some insulation. This checks all of the boxes. The build quality is superb, in the interior liner is very comfortable, and they look awesome. They are not the warmest option, needless to say, as they are slimmer than most other waterproof, winter gloves, but they strike the right balance between everything. The pull tabs work incredibly well and the gauntlets are slim, so they probably won't fit OVER some thick jackets.

I bought two of these for my 3 and 5 year old sons. They love them for their comfort and being flexible, but they still provide a good amount of warmth and wind resistance. They can be layered with easily as well. They are comfortable in temps down to freezing with a long sleeve t-shirt, a hoody, and the Nano-Puff. Works great as a stand-alone jacket in 40-55 degree weather. Durability has been quite good on top of all that.

This suit has worked incredibly well for my 1 year old son. It is thin and flexible, but still provides the warmth he needs with enough room for layering underneath if need be. The hand and feet covers add a lot of functionality and options as well. It is basically like a full body Nano-Puff, from what I can tell. A+.

Very comfortable, slim fitting, excellent ergonomics (as Arc'teryx usually does) and it does breath well as advertised. The face fabric seems impressively durable as well. I ended up wanting a hood and went with an Atom LT hoody as it met my needs better with the more wind resistant front and back face fabric, but for those looking for a jacket that provides warmth, some breathability and looks good doing it, definitely consider this.

My wife could live in this vest. She says it is one of the most comfortable insulating pieces she has ever owned and would get one in every color if she could. Layers/compresses very nicely, and the design is very attractive.

The versatility of this jacket cannot be overstated. It is warmer than it's weight would imply, resists elements better than you'd expect and more comfortable than its performance would imply. If I am wearing a t-shirt, thin baselayer and the Atom LT, I am pretty comfortable down to the low 30's Fahrenheit. Not bad at all for the weight of the jacket. On the other end of things, I can wear it partially unzipped up to about 55 degrees Fahrenheit. It blocks wind rather well, but still breaths due to the fleece side panels. The zipper is buttery smooth, the waist hem works well and the stretch panel wrists are really the best I have ever encountered on a jacket. I do have to layer with a moderately insulted vest under this to get by in the Idaho winters when it gets into the 20's, but, by doing that, I have avoided having to buy a full-on winter coat (eventually I will, but I love the light insulation pieces for the versatility). I can wear this all day in comfort during the cold months (unzipped inside, zipped outside).
There are two things that I would personally change about the jacket:
First, I would prefer the hood to be of normal size, not an oversized hood that fits over a helmet. While I totally get why Arc'teryx designs most of their jackets this way, I personally do not like it, as I use it for daily life, hiking, ect. I do not do any outdoor activities that require a helmet, so the hood is too roomy at the top of the head (even with the hood cinch, as it cinches more around the lower head and not so much the whole head).
Second, I prefer the Arc'teryx logo with the bird only. I love repping Arc, but I really like the more streamlined look of the bird only, not the bird AND the name "Arc'teryx". It looks a little busy.
These are fairly trivial things (though I really wish the hood was sleeker, I would consider replacing it with another one if they ever release an Atom with a more standard sized hood).
All and all, excellent product, delivers on everything it claims to be and worth the money.
