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.

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!

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!

What size did you end up with (atom lt)?

All around awesome jacket!

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

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

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

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.

Lightweight and Warm

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

I found this jacket to fit a little looser than the other Arc'teryx jackets I own, which is great for when I want to wear a few layers underneath. The yellow color however was more of a tangerine color than what's shown in the image. Still a great color but be aware.

Unanswered Question

What's the length from shoulder to the bottom of the jacket? It says hip but the reviews seem mixed for various heights.

Ripped within a week

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

I bought this jacket for a 3 week European backpacking trip. It didn't even last being worn a few days before it tore when I rubbed up against a flat surface. Not only was I disappointed that I spent so much money on something that was clearly not the quality one would expect from Arc'teryx, I no longer had a waterproof jacket for the rest of my trip.

To add insult to injury, when I contacted Arc'teryx to address the issue, they basically said "not our problem". They said I could pay them to repair it. Clearly they were not concerned about the fact that a jacket should at least be able to be worn under regular conditions and last more than a week.

Not only would I not recommend buying this jacket, based on the customer service I received from Arc'teryx, I would caution against buying their products. This company is not what it once was.

I had the same exact experience with the jacket an dthe Arcteryx customer service.

Arteryx Atom Jacket

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

This is an awesome jacket. I have been looking literally for years for a warm, light weight water resistant jacket for travel. I'm tired of taking 2 or 3 pieces. I am thrilled with this one. It is super warm in cool weather (haven't had it in really cold weather yet) but with a thin fleece under or a vest it will be fine. It is so light you hardly know you have it on. It has been great in light rain/drizzle. I'm off to Iceland/Greenland in August and can't wait to put it through it's paces. The medium gave me some room to wiggle in and fit my hips. You won't go wrong with this jacket - so far it's perfect for me.

Atom Jacket

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

This jacket is so light! It feels like I'm wearing a cloud. It's very soft, good for any weather, and the material seems durable so far. I'm 5'4, 120 lbs, purchased a small, and it fits perfectly with a little room for bulky sweaters.

Like the concept

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Size Bought: Medium and large

The large was too big through the shoulders and waist, the medium was too short for my torso, I do have a longer torso, so if you do not it may work for you. Disappointing since I do like the jacket, but neither size fit comfortably.

Great softshell

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

Love this jacket for the early spring chilly mornings and nights here in MI. I take this with me everywhere since I'm always cold. Plan on taking with me to Iceland in the summer. It's done well with light sprinkles and wind. But don't recommend for downpour or cold windy days--you'd need a hardshell.

The only slight con for me is the jacket fits perfectly but is a bit snug in the shoulders, but I have a broader shoulders so I can live with it.

light jacket that covers you totally

  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: large

I first bought it in my regular size of medium, but I later returned and got the large. The jacket runs small, if you consider putting it on top of other layers, otherwise it will fit snug and tight. It is very light and I didn't yet had a chance to test run it in bad weather, but it looks like it will give me great head and neck coverage.

Thank you so much for the great review Zila!

Love, love, love!

    This is my absolutely favorite jacket. Very warm, insulated and absolutely waterproof. Very comfortable and fits well.

    Win Win Win!

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

    I gave this as a gift to my friend and here is her review:

    The best all around athletic jacket you could ask for! I have two and I wouldn't mind having more. These jackets are breathable, warm, true to size, durable and great for any occasion. I have used mine to mountaineer, ski, climb, camp and walk my dog. The Atom LT packs down small when space is limited, and is easily layered under a shell. The fabric is thick, so I never feel worried that I could get a pull or snag like I am with all of my down jackets.

    I'm 5'5", 130lbs, with broad-ish shoulders and the medium fits very comfortably.

    Awesome Jacket!

    • Fit: True to size

    I wear my Arc'Teryx Atom Hoody as much as possible throughout the entire year.
