This jacket uses the brand’s iconic Synchilla fleece inside and out. It’s popular for its range of breathable warmth on the trail (and around town). It has pack-friendly sleeve construction, zippered pockets, internal stash pockets, and a stand-up collar to keep cold winds off your neck.
The Atom LT Hooded Insulated Jacket is made to wear on the move. It uses breathable ingredients and for greater mobility, it has stretchy fleece side panels, articulated elbows, and underarm gussets.
Arc’teryx chose a lighter face fabric for wind resistance with a DWR treatment to shed light moisture. Inside, Coreloft insulation keeps working, even if you get wet.
