Arcteryx Thorium AR Hoody (Winter 17)



Arcteryx Thorium AR Hoody (Winter 17)

The Arcteryx Thorium AR Hoody is a superb down jacket providing warmth and versatility on cold days. The Thorium AR Hoody can be used as a super warm midlayer or as a lighter outer jacket, an ideal choice for any mountain sport.

Arcteryx use Down Composite Mapping™ (DCM) in the Thorium AR Hoody. DCM is where Coreloft™ synthetic insulation is used instead of down in areas prone to moisture - the hood, collar, chin and cuffs. These areas are also prone to down migration and the use of Coreloft eliminates this problem as it remains static within the jacket. Finest quality 750 fill European goose down is then used throughout the body and arms where warmth is required the most.

The outer is made from a durable yet soft Arato™ fabric that benefits from a DWR finish to repel moisture. The StormHood™ provides excellent protection from the elements and is low volume. The elasticated cuffs and adjustable drawcord hem assist in preventing any icy drafts and help keep your essential warmth trapped inside the jacket.

The Arcteryx Thorium AR Hoody is a well thought out jacket that will ensuring your consistent warmth on a cold mountain.

Reviewer: Robert, Winchester  

Great fit and colour, lovely and warm, perfect weight for me but there is one issue. The zip. It pulls apart with almost no pressure on it. I then tried my other arcteryx tops (proton lt and covert hoody) and both do the same. Also the stuff sack in the pocket seems to be undetachable. Bit annoying. Overall though, love it.

The order was received quickly. The item is just perfect. The size i ordered is the size my husband is normally and it fit very well. Lovely colour and material. Very light weight but very warm and easy to wear. This will be just what is needed for our walking holiday in February in scotland. So good I'm going to get one myself.

Excellent service with rapid delivery and good value. High quality jacket that fits very well, and offers warmth whilst not being too bulky. Primarily used for Hill walking and skiing in dry conditions. Only negative to date is slight leakage of down as noted by other owners. Overall no hesitation in recommending.

Reviewer: Alistair, Lewes  

Very pleased with this jacket. Packs down very small into the stuff sack provided. Very light too. Will be used as back-up insulation when out walking in the hills and around town in the winter.

Perfect fit - enough room across the chest for me (42R), sleeve length just right, extends down to the hips and doesn't ride up when reaching up.

Handwarmer pockets large and in the right place and the hood fits well without there being any excess material to get in the way. Overall, very good and stylish purchase.

Great light weight down jacket. It does exactly what I want it to do. It compresses down (no pun intended) to a very small size so excellent for backpacking when you really need some extra warmth.

Also very good as a top up on cooler nights when using my three seasons light weight sleeping bag. Looking forward to testing it out even more in the Cairngorms this Whit holiday.

Very nice price, too, thanks Facewest!

Reviewer: Edward , Porvoo  

Excellent fit, unbelievably warm and fits nicely under both the Beta FL and Beta AR. A bit more roomy than the Cerium, but only just - it's still an athletic cut. Out in 1 degree weather with a t-shirt under the jacket and was very comfortable, but I tend to run a bit warm in general. All in all, can't complain - par for the course with Arc'teryx!
