The Arcteryx Womens Atom LT Vest is a fantastic lightweight core insulation piece that can either be used as a mid or outer layer depending on the conditions and activity. When used as a outerlayer and the weather takes a turn for the worst then a shell jacket over the top will be a perfect, albeit a very warm combination. The Vest features a womens specific anatomical cut which is designed to fit closely for layering.
The Womens LT Vest uses Coreloft insulation, a lightweight synthetic insulation that is very compressible and light but expands very quickly when unpacked. Coreloft is made up of thicker fibres than other leading insulation brands, which means it will not penetrate the outer fabric.
Luminara outer fabric is a lightweight Ripstop Nylon that has a DWR treatment on the face and has a light air permeable PU coating on the inside, providing good water repellency and wind resistance. The side panels are Polartec Power Stretch with a Hardface technology, improving durability and weather resistance of the fabric. It is these Power Stretch panels that provide this vest with exceptional levels of breathability and mobility, but if it gets really cold or you slow down or stop it will be these areas where you will feel the cold first.

This is a great bit of warm kit with very little bulk. I wanted a vest for a bit of versatility with layering, but a lot of the down vests are pretty bulky. This little beauty has fairly slim insulation so it fits easily under another layer, but it's still cosy. The stretchy sides means it can cope with being under or over another layer and still fit fine. I love it. It's great for a warm layer when you're active, it's not a big, enormous disappear-inside layer for lounging in.
