Ultra lightweight, yet warm
I've been hesitant to spend so much on a "lightweight" jacket, but have finally broke down. Boy, am I impressed! Super lightweight, ultra thin, but keeps me warm in the 20-30's. Not sure how durable the nylon will be to abrasions, but we shall see, as this is my first piece of Arc'teryx clothing. The cut is on the slimmer side, but the slightly elastic (yet stylish) wrist and waist keep wind out. Will easily layer under a more waterproof jacket while I'm riding in the rain, and keep me plenty warm without much bulk. Glad to find a jacket that I can always have with me and will serve a variety of purposes.

I bought this for my husband to wear under his Arcteryx paclite shell. He loves it. He loves the freedom of movement and for the weight it is surprisingly warm. It holds true to the Arcteryx promise to deliver the very best in gear.

I love this product. I bought it particularly for layering and it works perfectly with Patagonia Powder Bowl (Powder bowl being a little slim fitting for my taste). I needed lots of heat in a small package and this delivers. However, next thing I knew, I was wearing it all the time to go feed horses or run the dogs up the trail. I live in the mountains of Southern Oregon and its been very cold, but I don't hardly notice with this jacket. GREAT!

good jacket for San Francisco!
The weather in SF is ,as you may know, not easy to get used to. It's warm in daytime but it's freaking cold in nighttime, especially wind is very chilly. This jacket can stop wind and keep the warmth inside. Very good for those unique weather places. It's very light, so it doesn't bother to wear this even in warm daytime as well.

Atom lt jacket
I just used my atom Lt on a ski trip to steamboat colorado. This lightweight yet warm jacket worked perfectly under my stingray jacket. The temps were about 25-35 at the base but much cooler at the summit. The jacket kept me warm at the top but breathed great when I opened my pit zips on my shell whenever I got warm. It works better than a fleece because your shell will slide right over the fabric of the atom lt. I am 5'9" 185lbs with a 41" chest and went with a large and it fits perfectly. Arcteryx is pricey but worth it.
