Arcteryx Atom LT Hoody (2010)

This light, insulated jacket can be used when it's cold, windy, or wet. We tested it in all kinds of weather—and were never disappointed.

Arc’teryx has an ability to make exactly what I need before I know I need it. And I kind of resent them for it. Enter the Atom LT Hoody. This feather-weighted insulated piece (13.1 oz) has universal cool weather appeal for me: trim fit, active-use mobility, minimum features, breathes when I’m on the move, and with wind/water repellant coating, can be worn as the outer layer on all but the wettest days. I took this jacket for a weekend of ice climbing. For two days the sun was out and it was my jacket. On day three we had heavy snow and I threw a hardshell over it. The minimal wrist gaskets and slender sleeves didn’t clump or bunch beneath my outer coat. I never overheated while I climbed, nor did I get cold standing at the belay. It was exactly what I needed to keep a consistent core temp. Arc’teryx claims the hood fits under a helmet, which it does. Sort of. But who wears a hood under a helmet? Seriously? You look like a jackass. I found it fits over mine just fine.  —Jeff Burke
