Chase Nelson's Bio

Its all about alpinism, pure and simple. I like going light and fast on the hardest terrain i can handle.
I sport and trad climb, as well as ice and general mountaineering. I like to consider myself an all around climber and plan on living the climber life... forever.

The Atom LT is a great jacket and a really superb layering tool. Arc'teryx proves once again that their stuff really can't be beat, as this has quickly became one of my favorite layers I've owned. The athletic fit really helps with fitting under a shell or heavier insulating layer, as well as having a better fit for those of us with slimmer builds. Synthetic insulation is also key for the Pacific NW, performs really well under the wet conditions that you find around here.
I'm 5'8" with a slim build and a small fits perfect.
