People are looking for ways to keep them warm in this cold weather. I have been there. I looked for a great mid-layer jackets which will not be too heavy to have it with me every time and keep in my bag or car just to activate when I need it. I hated my fleece jacket because it was too heavy and just very breathable. Luckily, I got caught by this Arc’teryx Atom LT Insulated Jacket for men. Without any second thoughts and further ado, I bought the jacket and never regretted doing so. This jacket has been with me for almost a year now and I found no other jacket that can replace it until now.
Not only is this jacket great as a mid-layer. It is also great as an outer layer when the weather is dry. The outer material of this jacket is Durable Water Repellent that helps bead away water from the fabric surface making sure that when you use it as an outer core, your inner layers won’t get wet at all. It is also wind resistant that no breeze can find its way through the jacket. However, body core temperature can still be well regulated so that even if you are getting very active, the heat your body produces is still able to escape.
I use this jacket on me for skiing and hiking and never had I experienced my movement get restricted at all because of its Polartec Powerstretch panels under the arms which allows me to move about the way I want to without getting the waist seams lifted so high that breeze can enter.
Another thing that I love with this jacket is that it is so lightweight that it is very breathable and dries off very quickly when it gets a little damped during extremes of weather.
The only thing that I don’t love so much about this jacket is that the stretchy side panels can allow a little breeze inside. However, it is of no great concern to me enough to make me want to throw this jacket because I use it as a mid-layer or as an outer layer with other layers beneath it.
