Arc'teryx Atom LT Hooded Insulated Jacket - Women's
Arc'teryxAtom LT Hooded Insulated Jacket - Women's

Versatility at its finest.

After one use, you'll want to keep the Arc'teryx Women's Atom LT Hooded Insulated Jacket close by throughout the year. Wear it by itself from spring to fall on chilly outdoorsy adventures whether you're backpacking or hiking, and then slide a waterproof shell over it for ski sessions in winter. Its Tinthan shell keeps the Atom LT light yet strong, and the DWR coating sheds light rainfall to help keep you dry. Polartec Power Stretch side panels wick moisture, dry quickly, breathe, and provide a four-way stretch for uninhibited mobility.

Arc'teryx also added Coreloft insulation that uses air permeable panels to ensure excellent thermal regulation. A trim fit helps you layer over the Atom Lt with ease, and the StormHood is adjustable, insulated, and helmet-compatible. This jacket also features an adjustable hem for a secure fit, two zippered hand pockets, and one zippered internal chest pocket.

My favorite backcountry jacket

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

Originally purchased to wear spring (in interior Alaska that means anywhere from 0F - 40F) cross-country skiiing and snowshoeing. It's great in those temps for me! It feels like you're wearing a sleeping bag, it's so comfortable. It's incredibly lightweight and packable; I'll definitely be taking it on all my summer hiking trips. It's so comfortable to wear I found I was choosing it over my daily commuter spring jacket, so when Backcountry had them on sale, I figured I should snag another and dedicate one to outdoor activities. I originally got it in black, which is a sleek matte that looks really sharp (I even wear it to meetings.) The one I got from Backcountry (Aspen Glow) isn't as, uh... aesthetic haha. Online it looks like a sunny yellow, but it's truly more orange--picture a farm fresh egg yolk or your childhood favorite blue box mac and cheese. I don't care enough to send it back (it was on clearance after all) but I definitely wouldn't have chosen this color if I were physically holding it in the store, it's pretty putrid. All that said, this jacket is my favorite for three-season adventuring and you just cannot beat how lightweight and breathable this is, while still packing a punch in the insulation department.

My favorite backcountry jacket

super lightweight

  • Size Bought: Medium

This is very comfortable and lightweight, easily packable, and water resistant - I wore it in drizzle yesterday and it all just balled up and rolled off. I am not sure it'll really keep me warm in 40 degree weather, but I get cold very easily. It'll be perfect for my trip to the Canadian Rockies this summer.

3 Times a Charm

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've said it before and I'll continue to say it again--this jacket rocks. Champ at versatility, use as stand alone or an insulator. LIGHTWEIGHT, PACKABLE, BREATHABLE (dump that heat with the super supple and protective side panels that extend up through the pits).
Arc'teryx went all out (as usual) when choosing fabrics that do what the jacket is designed for--outer nylon isn't your everyday ripstop (we've heard that word a billion times)--the Tinthan nylon is super strong, durable, light, very wind resistance (tried it out on a cold night, windows open, 70mph down the freeway, just because I could-- and it works. The cool air hit the jacket and went AROUND it).
I use it for hiking, casual, cool morns on the beach, insulating jacket on the slopes or my go-to at the soccer game. It's your deliberate choice for your adventures or the just-in-case take along. Casual dinner and movie--great for that too. Color choices are always something to look forward to. This purchase is my 3rd for this jacket (had to, since my first jacket is now someone else's favorite jacket--this gets me back up to 2 now). The fit is pretty true to size. I have athletic shoulders and plenty of room for movement there (has a little stretch in the fabric too); tapers down a bit in the waist for performance (not boxy or sloppy in the least because of that).

2 thumbs up!

  • Fit: True to size

The Atom LT is the ideal ski touring mid-layer for underneath a Fore-Tex shell. I've worn this on almost all my mildly cold to cold days in the backcountry, and absolutely love it! The light synthetic material also packs down very well into your touring backpack and takes up minimal space. I would highly recommend this layer to anyone!

Take it for a tour

  • Size Bought: Small

Bought this jacket for my wife so that she could use it for snowboarding or touring. So far it's been the best buy of the season!It's true to size, light-weight, breathable, and is water-resistant. We wore it in single digit weather and after breaking a sweat, when she was cooling down, she didn't freeze. It's great for layering as well.

Arc'teryx - Women's Atom LT Hoody

Lightweight, breathable, insulated hoody; Ideal as a stand-alone piece in fair weather, or as a layering piece in cold conditions.



Atom Series: Synthetic insulated mid layers | LT: Lightweight

FAVORITE!!!

  • Fit: True to size

Lightweight, compactible, warm, main body core has great wind resistance, side and pit panels of supple, lightweight polartec dump heat and provide extra breathability when needed. I prefer the hooded for the frigid days where having an attached hooded provides a quick fix for extra warmth; hooded fits close for performance; loved for it's versatility too -- hike, ski (as an insulating layer), casual. For me (women's version) fits more like an athletic fit (NOT a boxy or baggy fit). Wondering if the day or evening activity will come with some chill in the air? This will be the lightweight jacket you reach for time and again. LOVE IT and colors are awesome too. I have two. Won't be long before I pick up a 3rd.

Hi, may I know what size you got for this? thanks!

My Go-To

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

This layer makes it into my pack for every adventure. I went with a Small, and it's pretty fitted, but perfect for my needs. Keeps me warm without overheating. I've had mine for over a year now, and haven't had any issues with tears or fraying.

Great fit and very warm!

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

I got this for my girlfriend, she loves how it fits. Fitted but not too snug. Can be a layer or an outer jacket and very warm!

Best midweight layer EVERRRR

    I used this tramping all over Banff in 0 degree temps, and it proved the best midweight base layer. Slim fit, warm and wind-blocking on its own, perfect fit under a shell. I will use this in three seasons, either on its own or as a mod-layer for cold or wet days. Fits true to size; I’m 5’10”, around 135, and wear a Medium.

    Great Jacket

    Got this as a gift for someone and they loved it. Fits pretty true to size and works great with people with longer arms.

    It's ok

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: S

    I ordered this jacket because of the stellar reviews and I think its ok. It is really light weight, which will be good for when I am active in cool weather, but on its own it is not very warm. At this price point there are better lightweight jackets. It is a really good-looking design, but not quite as warm as I was hoping for. I got a small based on the reviews ( I am between S and XS) and there us plenty of room underneath for layering. Not slim, but not baggy. It is true to size in my opinion.

    Best Everything Jacket

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

    I have had this jacket for about a month now, and it is one of the best purchases I've ever made. It has become my every day jacket and has been great for everything from slightly chilly fall mornings to walking the dogs in the latest snowstorm. It is super light weight and will be a huge space saver when it needs to be packed.

    Love this jacket!

    • Fit: True to size

    I've been on the search for a light puffy for cooler weather and one that I could potentially use for layering. I originally ordered the Patagonia Nano Puff in a S and found that it was waaaay to big on me (specifically the length) while the XS was too tight (I'm 5', 120 lbs with an athletic build). After scouring the internet for the best jackets for petite folks, this jacket was highly recommended. I was hesitant because of the price, but I am so glad I ended up buying it! It fits so well -- I definitely value utility over looks, but hey, it's nice to feel good in a jacket you paid $$ for!

    I've only used it a couple times in weather that was in the 40s and was pretty good with a hoodie and even better with a fleece underneath instead. I really appreciate the adjustable hood (other helmet compatible hoods kind of just flop over my head when I'm not wearing a helmet, but I still want a little more warmth) and the snug but stretchy cuffs that hold the sleeves in place. So far I'm very happy with this purchase!

    All around awesome jacket!

    The atom lt is light weight and awesome for fall/ winter activities like trail running, snowshoeing and cross country skiing. It’s very breathable, but keeps you warm! Nicely done arcteryx!

    Great for travel and very light

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

    I bought this for my wife for recent trip to Barcelona on Thanksgiving. It get very cold at night in Barcelona (around 40F) and very windy at the beach. We wanted something and she does not like down jacket. This Atom LT is perfect for traveling and it is lightweight ,keep you warm and good for light rain. We bought black for my daughter and I bought brown during the sale since we all love it. I have not used for hiking but it will great for 50-60F here in California.

    Not meant for climbing

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: M

    I purchased this expensive product that was marketed as a climbing jacket and was definitely disappointed. The first time i went climbing in it the fabric immediately frayed due to very light abrasion against the rock. I thought this product would hold up in the outdoors, but it seemed to be more of a "city" jacket. I even took the jacket to Arcteryx to talk to them about the fraying that happened during my first use and they would not take the product back.

    Go-to for any trip

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

    This jacket is the perfect thing to bring on a bikepacking/backpacking trip. It packs down really well and is a staple on all my trips now. I'm 5'3 and 140 lbs and I got the medium to layer with it. It fits perfectly with my t-shirt and flannel underneath. Great for layering, it is also excellent for mornings or evenings in camp when it's chilly or breezy. Catch me sitting in my camp chair with my hood pulled up, sipping my morning coffee.

    The best

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

    I have the mens version of this jacket, and it is my go to for almost everything. The biggest issue I had with it was it was never in my closet because SOMEONE kept stealing it. Now she has her own, and I can keep mine. She loves hers, and now we can match.

    Love this jacket

    Love this jacket - it’s pretty light weight and looks awesome. I pack it up small and put it on for the mountain mornings. It’s chilly if I’m just standing around in 40° weather, but as soon as I start moving, I’m toasty as can be.
