Design

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The Arc Teryx Atom Lt is a versatile synthetic insulated mid-layer with a high degree of weather resistance. It’s lightweight and compressible, so it’s great for packing or traveling. But it also has a trim fit that makes it ideal for base layers and light mid-layers.

Arc Teryx Atom Lt Review

The Atom LT is designed to be used as either a base layer or a light mid-layer, depending on the weather conditions you’re facing.

  • If it’s cold out, you can wear this as your only base layer;
  • Also, if it’s warm out, you can wear this as your only mid-layer.
  • If you need something in between those extremes, use this as your main mid-layer when the temperature isn’t extreme.

This jacket is also great for travel and hiking because of its compressibility and packability. You can fold this up into a small space in your backpack or luggage. This means that it won’t take up much room when you’re on the road or trekking through nature.

Comfort

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This jacket is super warm, but it’s not heavy or bulky. You can wear it as a base layer or a light mid-layer, and it’s great for hiking, backpacking, or just going to school in the winter.

The fabric is soft and comfortable against your skin. It doesn’t feel like you’re wearing any kind of outerwear at all!

Durability

Rating: 5 out of 5.

We have been using this jacket for about a year now and it has held up really well. We were initially worried about how durable the stitching would be, but it hasn’t had any issues with that so far. The fabric is also very strong, which is great. Because we’re always stuffing our pack full of gear and gear always seems to get caught on this jacket.

Resistant

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

The Atom LT is resistant to wind and moisture. So you can wear it in any condition without worrying about getting wet or cold. It has an adjustable hem with dual lower hem adjusters. So you can customize the fit to whatever you’re wearing underneath it. And with its trim fit, it works well as a base layer or light mid-layer over another shirt or jacket.
