Spending time in the outdoors in the late spring, summer or early fall can involve fluctuations in temperature and comfort. Early morning chill, a suddenly shady trail, and changes in elevation and levels of exposure mean insulation is essential. But insulation geared for winter conditions can lead to overheating and discomfort. The Atom SL Hoody is specifically created to perform when insulation is required, but in a measured amount that suits milder conditions. Providing warmth comparable to a lightweight fleece for significantly fewer grams, the Atom SL is an efficient midlayer in cool conditions and a great standalone during rest breaks, early morning starts, and while enjoying the view from a freshly bagged peak. . . . Mesh 100% polyester. . Tyono


The women's Arc'teryx Atom SL insulated hoodie works well as a mid layer in cool weather or on its own during rest breaks as you enjoy the view from the peak. Plus, it weighs just 8.3 oz.


Whether you're navigating a wet and brushy approach below treeline or a long traverse across high alpine ridge lines during the summer climbing season, the Arc'teryx Atom SL Hooded Jacket offers lightweight insulation, wind-resistance, and the breathability needed to keep moving at a quick clip in the mountains. The Atom SL has a hybrid construction that combines the insulating properties of a synthetic fill jacket with the breathability of a stretch fleece piece, giving you the best of both worlds for a wide swath of varying adventures. The body consists of 20D nylon that's treated with a DWR finish to repel moisture, while the sides are fitted with a breathable and stretchy Torrent fleece fabric to keep the jacket breathable during those highly aerobic ascents. The hood isn't insulated to help keep your dome dry and cool when you're on the move, and the No Slip Zip center zip is specifically engineered to stay put throughout the day.


The Atom SL Hoody shouldn't be considered just another Insulated, mid-layer hoody. Whether its an ultra cold bivy or camping with friends in cold temps Arcteryx designed the Atom SL so you can enjoy the wonders of winter while maintaining vital core warmth with liberal mobility and breathability.
