User Review: Arc'teryx Men's Atom LT Jacket
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $190
Light insulation, sleeve-packable jacket with an athletic fit. Breathable, super comfortable next to skin. Ideal for active pursuits under the Alpha SV.
- Silky smooth
- nNot very windproof
5'9", large is just right. The Atom series seem to have a thing for accentuating a belly. Darn, it's probably just because I have a belly, but the pockets and pocket zips are placed just on the edges of the stomach.
Not very water or wind resistant, but this jacket isnt really for that. I feel it is the perfect jacket underneath a hardshell such as the Alpha SV, to combine active and breathable comfort with warmth ready for anything to about 0°F. This is a very silky, next to skin fabric which is reasonable durable for its weight. The jacket can be packed into its own arm, which sure increases the cool factor.
Another thing I like is the synthetic insulation, which while not as warm as down. It beats out down when you get wet. I'm from Seattle.
