User Review: Arc'teryx Men's Atom LT Hoody
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $155
Very warm for weight, if you can get it cheap, go for it.
- Fit is difficult for taller guys
Overall, the Atom fits really well and is so comfortable, you'll forget you're wearing it. As a midlayer, it leaves room while remaining an athletic fit. Although the cuffs and waist don't adjust, they haven't bothered me at all.
The hood of this jacket doesn't tighten, and looking to the left and right with the hood up is annoying because the hood doesn't move with you. Other people have said the zippers come undone easily, but even pulling on the chest fabric doesn't move mine. For light rain, it's very resistant and in general this is a great jacket.
I'm only focusing on the negatives here because the reviews from this site I've read have been very positive, and they're all spot-on. This is a really great jacket for belaying and hiking as a midlayer, or standing alone over a sweater around town. It's usually pricey, so it can be a difficult sell. I found it for $155 and I'm very pleased with the purchase.
