All-around insulation for the ascent.

A down jacket may seem like a good call when it's cold and you're getting gear ready at the trailhead, but you're going to be a hot, sweaty mess by the time you're on the trail and your heart rate is up. The Arc'teryx Men's Atom AR Hooded Insulated Jacket insulates when you're getting gear lined out for the day's objective and remains breathable during the approach, so you aren't stuck with a soggy, useless down jacket before the sun is even up. The Atom is insulated with Arc'teryx's Coreloft insulation, which consists of highly crimped and siliconized polyester yarns that are breathable, packable, and water-resistant to retain insulating capabilities when confronted with light precipitation. If it does start to rain or snow, then the Atom can be worn comfortably as midlayer under a shell for an added dose of warmth.

  • All-around midlayer for the trail, skintrack, or crag
  • Water-resistant synthetic insulation is highly breathable
  • Durable Tyono fabric treated with DWR for added weather protection
  • Compressible design packs away for easy storage in a backpack
  • Can be worn as a midlayer during cold ski days or rainy hikes
  • Vancouver-based Arc'teryx uses the mountains of British Columbia to inform its clothing designs

Awesome Jacket!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

Great fit and looks really good in Proteus. Did well for me in 40-50 weather in NYC. Super comfortable! Excited to wear it in Alaska!!

Perfect midlayer

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Awesome jacket! worth the dollars!

Husband Approved

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

My husband bought this and it has quickly become a staple for him. The Proteus color is really great, and it fits him perfectly.

Great Jacket

Great Jacket to have. Love this brand. All products are very comfortable . Very happy with this purchase. Great for everyday wear.

Great product

Super warm and comfortable. Great all around jacket. Happy with this purchase for sure.

Lovely Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

After much pressure from my peers particularly a lovely lady in my life, it became time to join the Arc'teryx family. After collecting many cans, converting our power usage to solar and cutting our cable, I was able to acquire this amazing jacket. #Wortheverypenny In all seriousness this jacket has been my go to for walking to work every day. It has been quite warm but somehow breathes as well. I used it as my mid layer for skiing, but quickly removed it as I overheated. It does repel rain adequately, Maybe not all day, but for jaunts in town it has done the job. Overall very happy with the purchase. Hoping its not too hot for 50-60 degree days. Could maybe be bit longer as it sits right at the belt line.

Everyday Winter!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I wear this probably 40-50 days during the winter. It is the best!

Worth it

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

Great fit. Comfy but not loose. Love the lifetime warranty and great all around jacket.

So Close

    5-11, 180, longish torso, size M
    Really wanted to love it like the LT, however it just didn't have that perfect fit. Too short (hits right at the belt line) and a bit too boxy (the LT is far more form fitting and flattering).
    Felt warm enough and had a nice quality too it. Had to return based on fit.

    So, I'm 5'10" and about 200, but muscular. I've got a bit of "extra" around the midsection and wondering if the L is going to cut it. Input?

    best all around jacket I own

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Large

    This jacket can be worn when it's 20 and it can be worn when it's 65. The combination of the shell and ventilation makes it the most diverse jacket I own...and I own a lot. It is SO light, that it can easily be worn under a jean jacket if your doing your outdoor garage (or lumberjack) work. If you come in from the outdoors, and want to continue wearing this indoors (where it's a little cool) it's perfect. (e.g. hockey games). Also very comfortable driving in it. . It is also insanely packable. (I have worn this jacket all winter...but only as an urban warrior, and not using it as a lumberjack or snow boarder

    I wear a medium in EVERY other coat I own...in this one, I'm a large.
    The zippers are not high quality.

    Quality Jacket

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XL

    I bought this jacket hoping for something warm to wear on my morning walk with my dog in the harsh Michigan winters. Jacket totally fit the bill. I am 5'9" 195-200 so I'm borderline Large or XL in most jackets. The XL fit was just right for me. With this jacket- just enough room to feel comfy. I really loved the jacket- but ordered the red.. The pic on the internet led me to think it was more of a brick/dark red... upon receipt the jacket is very bright red. Sounds picky... but I just din't care for the color. Other than that.. excellent jacket, very warm, comfy, looked and felt like it would hold up to wind and rain/ wet snow.

    too comty

      First and foremost I can actually take it off, I just don't want to.

      Super Warm and Light! Odd Sizing

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: Large

      I will admit that I intend to use this jacket for urban purposes 80% of the time. My Large weighs in at 480g and is impressively warm. I love the cuffs they create and attractive smooth and comfortable seal around the wrist, very clever design. I wish they had applied the same concept to the bottom as the hem bunches awkwardly with the slightest pull on the cinch cords. The hood functions nicely with a cinch cord that functions well.

      As another review I read mentioned, it does seem odd that the jacket will unzip easily if you pull the sides apart when partially unzipped. Perhaps this is intentional, I would welcome a comment if someone knows why it does this.

      My biggest criticism is the sizing. I should fit easily into a medium which was the first size I ordered, but the forearms were way too tight, I could not comfortably wear anything but a t-shirt or fitted base layer under it. Also the back did not seem quit wide enough for me to cross by arms without feeling it pull. I ordered the large and its arms and back are perfect but of course the waist and midsection is considerably looser than I would like. On the bright side I can now comfortably fit a fleece layer under it. I just find it odd given that I am fairly modestly built and that it is a regular fit, that the forearms and back would be so restricted.

      To sum it up, I love the jacked but if you intend to wear this jacket with regular street clothes around town, or as an outer layer with a fleece, I would recommend ordering a size up.

      My Bestest Jacket!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size

      I can't say enough good things about this jacket. It's light enough to be a heavy mid-layer but can stand on it's own in the cold if needed. I happen to be the friend mentioned below who looks forward to the cold so I can put this baby on. It's great! Do yourself a favor and get one. A small worked great for me

      My Best Jacket

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: medium

      This coat is my go to coat and i love it. I've worn it several times in very cold conditions without any layers on top and have still been warm. If you're looking for a daily coat or a warm midlayer, this is a great option. While it's expensive, it's worth the money. Make sure to check out the size chart when you are ordering the coat. The arms on Arc'teryx jackets are typically a little long. My medium fits me great! A friend recently purchased this coat due to my suggestion and said that he looks forward to cold days so that he can wear this coat.

      Best synthetic in my gear closet

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large

      I picked this up for a trip to Patagonia, where down might have been a disaster given all the rain, and was not disappointed. Positives:

      1. The fit is great. Fortunately Arc'Teryx hasn't succumbed to the recent trend of sizing for the more rotund. It's large enough to fit over a light fleece layer, light enough to fit under my rain shell, and retains a nice athletic fit.
      2. The materials and finishing are top notch.
      3. It performed flawlessly given my expectations for a synthetic insulation layer in these conditions.

      What's not to like? The price. But I guess you get what you pay for...

      Unanswered Question

      Would this work as a suitable outer layer winter jacket for a typical Minnesota Winter? (Ranging from 32 to -15 degrees (F) with wind). If not, which Arc'teryx jacket would you recommend for those conditions? (under $400)

      Great performer

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large

      I got this jacket for warmth at hiking breaks and camp duty. The southern Appalachian mountain winters tend to be cold and wet or really cold and windy. This jacket is the lightweight tool to handle it. Wonderful warmth in the core and plenty in the arms. I was leery of the one-string hood, but it fits great. My favorite feature is how the collar fits - it gently curves from the neck up over my chin, keeping out chilly drafts. Rare is the jacket that fits so well in that regard!

      So why 4 stars instead of 5? The one thing that drives me nuts and makes no sense is the lack of a lock tab on the zipper pull! I open it half way while doing while doing photography or camp chores and the jacket will unzip to the bottom. Why did they choose a zipper pull with no locking tab? It's not about weight or cost. I have a Marmot jacket of similar weight, same type of coil zipper other than it has a lock tab on it. I may just put a zipper pull on myself with a lock tab, but when I pay for a primo jacket I want it to have ALL the features!

      So, 4.5 stars for the Atom AR. Despite the zipper, its still the best!

      Amen Bro! Arc should be smart enough to make a great zipper if they can make everything great...I know they have to text the gear. It bothers me b/c the wind blows and it unzips my zipper!!!

      I lost this jacket, tried to go without it, I failed. I just bought my second. It's that good. Warm, great fitting, light and compressible! Can you ask for anything else. I have my beacon on under the jacket in the pic. It's a trim fit but it's done right.
