The Arcteryx Thorium AR Hoody is a superb down jacket providing warmth and versatility on cold dry days. The Thorium AR Hoody can be used as a super warm midlayer or as a lighter outer jacket, an ideal choice for any winter 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 - as down loses performance quickly when wet. 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 internal pocket also doubles up as a handy stuff sack so it can be easily compressed for rucksack transportation.

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.
