Is it because of its versatility that the Atom LT Hoody has proven to be so popular with outdoor enthusiasts? Suitable for just about all outdoor activities the Atom LT Hoody keeps you warm on colder days. It is able to shed any excess heat through the Polartec Powerstretch side panels helping you to regulate your core warmth when active. The LT Hoody is comfy wear and is a slim fit, cut in such a way as to allow full freedom of movement. It works well both as a mid-layer (it is quite thin and not 'bulky') and as an outer jacket in its own right.
The Atom LT Hoody is treated with a water repellent finish which will shed water in wet conditions, however, it is not waterproof. Should you get soaked in the rain the Atom LT will still keep you warm and because the insulation is synthetic it will quickly dry out again when back in dry weather. It is wind resistant and the Taffeta nylon face has a record for its toughness and durability, all in all, it is an excellent hoody for those who are often out in the mountains climbing, scrambling or hiking.
People remark on the price of Arcteryx garments. They are unashamed of the cost of their products and say that it reflects their ethos to produce long-lasting and high-quality goods that will have less long term environmental impact. "Durability and performance - from the beginning Arcteryx products have been guided by these 2 principles. As the rise of fast fashion increases the apparel industries social and environmental impacts. We continue striving to build durable gear that performs season after season". As part of their environmental commitment, Arcteryx is signed up to the 'Blue Sign' scheme.
The fit is slim and the Atom LT will pack down into small carry spaces. The Coreloft synthetic insulation traps air and performs well in humid and wet conditions. This hybrid, lightweight jacket has three pockets, articulated elbows and gusseted underarms for complete freedom of movement. The hood loves helmets and fits nicely around the face too for good protection.
Use alone in cold, dry conditions. Or as a mid-layer under a shell in wet weather.
