User Review: Arc'teryx Women's Atom LT Jacket
Price Paid: 180 euros
I have had this jacket for 3 months- it is great!
It is warm AND breathable. For downhill skiing and sledding in -5 to -15C, I paired the jacket with a goretex shell, a fleece+thermal shirt underneath. Warm!
For cross country skiing in -10C weather (definitely a high-impact activity), I wore 2 synthetic layers underneath and was warm enough without getting overly sweaty and wet.
For going around town, I just wear as it is!
It fits well. Body fitting, such that you don't look like a marshmellow man, but still enough room underneath for a fleece or other thin layers. The cuffs are made of elasticized material that stops the sleeves from sliding down, even with raised arms. I also love the bright blue colour.
It is light! Like crazy light... How does something that is so small insulate so well? But it does! I like the feeling of not wearing a jacket while wearing a jacket.
My only two suggestions would be to 1. add a drawstring to the bottom hem and 2. raise the under chin cuff by 1 cm (when wearing alone, too much of my neck exposed).
I have the hoodless-version and it fits well under a shell.
