User Review: Arc'teryx Women's Atom LT Jacket
Price Paid: $165
This jacket is so worth the $$! It is warm enough to wear in the 30s, yet you won't overheat in the 50s. There are three things that I must rave about this jacket:
- The handwarmer pockets. Genius. The interior of the jacket is made of material that heats up when your body does, so your body heats up one side of the pocket and the other is fleece. Best handwarmer pockets I've encountered.
- The breathable Polartec Powerstretch side panels. They are why this jacket is so versatile. While it really does heat up (esp under a shell), these help it breathe and regulate your temperature. Added bonus: they make you look thinner!
- The fit. It is a tapered fit and is incredibly flattering. You can certainly fit layers underneath it, but it is snug.
Now for the other great features: beautiful color, awesome wrist gaiters, very light weight, and feels so comfortable.
As long as you use this jacket for what it is intended for, you should not be let down. Just remember it is a mid layer jacket, not a full on winter coat. It doesn't really block wind either.
