The Arcteryx Atom LT Vest provides core warmth and can be worn either as a mid or outer layer depending on the conditions and activity. When used as an 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 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 Tyono nylon fabric. This is lightweight and benefits from a DWR treatment that provides 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.

Customer Reviews of Arcteryx Atom LT Vest (Winter 18)
Excellent gillet, very warm, wind proof, lightweight, packable, and a very good price!
When you first get this vest out of the bag, you may worry how warm it's going to be. I certainly did. It's a very impressive bit of kit though, and really keeps the warmth in. I've been wearing it as a mid-layer, and it's fit and light weight make it extremely comfortable under my waterproof or soft shell.
When I received the arc'teryx atom Lt. vestmy first impression was what a great piece of kit, but it wasn't until I used the atom that I was really impressed. The fit is spot on ,the weight is nice and light, but it works - It keeps me warm but vented at the same time.I know that this bit of kit will be with me for a lot of years.5 stars.
