Arcteryx Atom LT Vest
A comfortably insulated super lightweight Arcteryx Vest that provides a highly breathable and effective barrier against cold and windy weather. Beautifully designed and constructed with Coreloft insulation and breathable PowerStretch side panels, the Arc'teryx Atom LT Vest is a brilliantly versatile piece. For active use in cold and dry conditions wear the Arcteryx Atom LT Vest as an outer layer; when it's cold and wet add a waterproof and it functions perfectly as a midlayer across a broad spectrum of activities.Coreloft Performance Insulation
Used to warm the Arc'teryx Atom LT Vest, lightweight Coreloft insulation is made with highly crimped, multi-sized polyester fibres that efficiently trap warm air, its excellent loft retention enabling long-term performance. Siliconised yarns ensure performance is maintained in damp and wet conditions. Being very compressible, breathable and thermally efficient, Coreloft insulation guarantees that the Arc'teryx Atom LT Vest packs plenty of warmth into a low-bulk package that's highly durable, packable, comfortable across a range of activity levels, plus it's able to maintain warmth in wet conditions and dry quickly too.
Polartec Powerstretch Side Panels
The side panels of the Arc'teryx Atom LT Vest are constructed from Polartec Powerstretch with Hardface technology, rather than Coreloft insulation, as it's more breathable so reduces overheating in active use. These stretch panels also aid the Arc'teryx Atom LT Vest's neat fit and performance.
Rain Resistant, Stretch Outer
Made by Toray, Arc'teryx have chosen premium TYONO 20 taffeta fabric for the Arc'teryx Atom LT Vest because it's ultralight, breathable and strong thanks to its tightly woven fibres. Built with mechanical stretch and fine denier yarns, TYONO 20 fabric is soft to touch, compressible, very flexible for freedom of movement, highly wind resistant, and able to slip easily under a waterproof jacket when worn as a midlayer. A DWR coating helps the Arc'teryx Atom LT Vest repel moisture, allowing it to be worn as an outer layer in light rain or drizzle.
Functional Comfort Features
No Slip Zip technology on the front zip keeps the zip in the place of your choosing, eliminating zip-creep in active use, while an adjustable hem drawcord allows its fit to be perfected. Two zipped pockets provide a spot to warm hands or stow small essentials, and an internal zipped security pocket holds a phone or wallet.
A multi-tasking friend, the Arcteryx Atom LT Vest adds a welcome layer of lightweight warmth and comfort in almost every situation, on a daily basis. And when the weekend arrives, this low-profile Arcteryx Vest is backed-up with technologically advanced insulation that combines perfectly with a waterproof shell jacket for every outdoor activity; from climbing and belaying to hill walking and backpacking. And in the ski season, the Arcteryx Atom LT Vest is an ideal piece to wear travelling, and then under a ski jacket for extra warmth.
