The Atom LT is a necessity for anyone’s outdoor wardrobe and the Atom SL is like icing on the cake. Those late spring mornings or evenings where keeping your core warm on your climb, run, bike or hike is important and the SL is just the perfect answer. Love this vest and probably wear it and wash it more than any other single clothing item. Smart purchase for any active person.

6’3 230 xxl. I have two and wear them over a T-shirt from late fall to early spring. The pull over would be anyone’s favorite everyday piece if they could get away with it. Light warm. Is it stylish? Who cares....

I felt guilty hitting the buy button having already owning an Atom lt. I was wrong, they are different jackets and have strengths compared to the other. The proton is a warmer coat than the atom but the overlap in all of the right places. I think proton slogging down hill and atom uphill. Have one or the other or better with both.

Weight to warmth ratio, breath ability, pack ability. If you are truly an active person who wants their gear to enhance their out door experience buy this vest. I wear this vest alone or under a shell. Simply put, if there is a vest as versatile as this vest then it's perfect because this vest is nearly perfect. Get away your traditional nylon mid- layer, why have your expensive gortex shell when your nylon jacket is going to trap your perspiration under the shell. This vest is just "smart".

I'll put it right up front, order a half size larger. I wanted a shoe that I could scorch the typical Arizona trail, part loose rock part scramble. It's the perfect shoe for me. Please don't write a review or make up your mind until you break it in properly, all really great shoes need a little time on your feet and then and only then do you find their greatness. The Five Ten Access is just one of those shoes. When you first try them on you might think you made a mistake but lace-um and go for a walk and you won't to take them off. It also helps you to feel good about your purchase when strangers ask you about your shoes as you're sitting in a restaurant. I'm fifty eight years old and have lived through the bridge from the Norwegian welt to the modern shoe. Five Ten (adidas) has made a truly a great shoe.

Ok, the only reason I wouldn't give this bag a fifth star is that it weighs a ton. This is not the sleep sack to put in your back pack. It is the perfect sleeping bag for Camping in the snow or in the back of your truck on a "ski bumb" vacation. The bag has all the bells and whistles minus the 800 down. This bag is sold at a more than fair price, crazy not to have this bag in your outdoor arsenal.
