This is a great vest! It weighs next to nothing (7-9 oz.) and is very comfortable to wear. I walk every morning and I wear this vest with two layers under it in 22 - 30 degree weather and stay very comfortable. I plan on taking it with me when I hike because I won't even know it is in my pack. I am 6'1" and weigh 201 and a large fits perfectly. The sides have a windstopper material that doesn't keep out all the wind, but it doesn't bother me either. When I get warmed up, the little bit of cool on my sides feel pretty good. I would highly recommend this vest! It is a little pricey, but good equipment usually is.

light and warm
I have two Atom jackets (LT and SV) and this vest - all are super light and very warm considering their lightness. The vest is the most versatile and obviously offers the most mobility so it is great for golfing and other activities where you require more range of motion.

The Arc'teryx Atom LT Vest is the perfect protection for your core during the spring, fall, and winter seasons. It's lightly insulated with PrimaLoft and there are 2 panels of Polartec Power Stretch, on the left and right, to help breathability if cardio kicks up a bit. The fit is definitely athletic. I'm 5'9" 145lbs athletic and I wear a medium ... It's a perfect fit! Small definitely would be cutting into my pits and large would leave too much space everywhere. If you've ever tried on the hoody or jacket version of this line, the fit is exactly the same. Love, love love this vest! ... So much so that I even have the hoody and non-hoody jacket versions =)

Great for wearing as a mid-layer under an exterior shell or white coat in sone cold hospitals. I'm about 167 lbs and 5'11", the medium fit well over one or two thin layers (e.g. two shirts); a large would have been too billowy in the waist. Would highly recommend v. the sweater vests you get from designer stores.

I use many arcteryx items over 5 years, and I use this vest most often, since it just fits so well and comfortable. price is bit high for vest, but its worth every penny
