Arc'teryx Men's Atom SL Hoody

New for 2016, this long-awaited, verstaile, lightly insulated hooded Jacket from Arc'teryx is set to become your 'Always with me' favourite. Providing far more protection than a fleece, yet not as much warmth/bulk as a down insulated Jacket, the Arc'teryx Atom SL Hoody is comfortable, warm and highly breathable. High end fabrics and exceptional design combine, producing a Jacket that offers maximum versatility, while occupying minimal space in your rucksack.

Tyono DWR Treated Face Fabric

Light, soft, durable and compressible, Tyono 20 fabric forms the Atom SL's primary protection. Its premium taffeta fabric is built with mechanical stretch for freedom of movement. Super-soft to touch, yet resilient to wear, Tyono's fine yarns allow this ultralight, very breathable fabric to be highly wind resistant and strong. A Durable Water Repellent finish allows moisture to bead-up on the fabric's surface and roll off - not waterproof, but water-resistant - fending off drizzle and a light shower.

40g Coreloft Compact Insulation

The Arc'teryx Atom SL Hoody's body is lined with a thin layer of Coreloft Compact to provide a light layer of warmth that's ideal for a multitude of outdoor adventures. Coreloft was developed by Arc'teryx to provide a highly advanced insulating material that could mimic Down, while overcoming some of Down's disadvantages, i.e. its lack of ability to insulate effectively when wet. Coreloft consists of staple fibres of mixed sizes, that are crimped together, trapping air and retaining warmth.

Arc'teryx Coreloft Advantages:

  • Retains warmth in wet and humid conditions
  • Durable and resilient
  • Dries quickly
  • Easy to machine wash and care for
  • More compressible than most other Synthetic Insulation
  • Soft and luxurious feel
  • Light weight
  • Less Coreloft is needed to provide the same warmth as inferior Synthetic Insulation
  • Very breathable
  • Functions well as an outer layer or as a mid layer in wet weather

Unhindered Athletic Movement

Benefiting form Arc'teryx's exceptional cut and fit, the Atom SL Hoody features low profile stretch fleece side panels which enhance ventilation and ensure a trim fit. The shaped cuffs cover the back of your hand for warmth, and stretch fleece inserts allow you to comfortably pull the sleeve up your forearm, for extra ventilation. The mesh-lined sleeves offer greater next-to-skin comfort and non-binding movement. The stretch of the outer fabric combined with the Arc'teryx Atom SL's patterning, creates a design that moves unhindered with your body.

StormHood

The Arc'teryx Atom SL Hoody features a single-hand adjustable, insulated StormHood. Complete with a laminated brim, the Atom SL's hood will stay in place as you face a gale head-on. The front No Slip Zip works like a series of speed bumps, keeping the main zipper from opening of its own accord. Two deep zipped hand pockets are placed for use with a harness - either climbing or rucksack, and lastly, there's an adjustable hem drawcord to seal out cold and tailor the Jacket's fit.

Enviable Versatility

From climbing to trekking spring/summer outer-layer to skiing mid-layer, the Arc'teryx Atom SL Hoody will keep the chill at bay no matter how athletically you're moving. Lightweight, lightly warm and really breathable, the Arc'teryx Atom SL Hoody offers enviable versatility.

Fantastic. Far better than expected.
Wednesday, 7 November 2018  | 

The Atom SL is far better than I expected. Arc'teryx are always great quality, but I was a little apprehensive about so little insulation being effective. This really is an excellent set up for general wind resistance and warmth. So much so, that I have sold my softshell jacket, as it is now redundant! It's a nice slim fit without being tight or restrictive with room for winter baselayers. Sure, it's never going to stand Scottish winter outings on the Cairngorm plateau, but it's not far off and has superb breathability for the higher paced days and activities. This certainly holds it's place well in your 'go to' kit. I was so impressed that I bought the gilet to match. Definitely recommended and would buy again. Only slight negative is the top 6 inches of the zip is a little ''notchy'', not terrible, but they describe zips as 'one handed' use and this notchy part definitely needs two hands. My Atom LT is the same, so I guess it's the transition from straight zip pull to the cuve around the neck. Maybe this will ease with use, but certainly not a deal breaker. Escape2 were incredibly quick delivery too, thanks guys.

Thank you for your review, the notchy zip is a new feature that Arcteryx have fitted to a few garments, it enables you to be able to open the zip by grabbing the collar with one hand but not completley undoing the zip, section by section. Their r&d team and athletes believe it's a great addition.

Great service from escape2. Love the Atom SL Hoody. Great trim fit. Hoping it will pair well with my SL vest and Beta SL shell for cold days in the hills.

Initial impressions
Friday, 14 December 2018  |  Andrew

I've purchased these gloves for 2 upcoming trips. Very impressed with the price and service from escape2. The gloves are great but yet to be tested properly. One thing to note is that I ordered large and the gloves are only just big enough for me. I don't consider myself to have very big hands so beware when choosing a size for you. Otherwise all great.

Love this jacket. The longer line and powder skirt are a great addition, especially as I will be using it for hiking as well as skiing.
It has a slimmer fit than the beta AR jacket, which makes it more flattering, whilst still allowing enough room to add plenty of extra layers without hampering movement.
Great shooping experience with Escape 2. Fantastic customer service.

Another great product from Arc’teryx. The fit is trim, but not too tight, layers well and has an excellent warm to weight ratio.

Price and speedy service from Escspe2 is what I’ve come to expect from them, both are outstanding!

We’ve brought these coats for our children 2 years in a row now. They’re prefect for skiing, and they also use them for school, the orange colour is very bright so we definitely can’t lose them!. We normally buy them for the North Face store however Escape 2 came in at a very competitive price, the service was brilliant and very quick delivery, would definitely recommend to friends

Excellent layering piece.
Tuesday, 20 November 2018  |  Chris

This is an excellent layering piece. I have used it in our 'wonderful' Scottish climate for hiking and found it to be the perfect attribute to the layering system. On the hill, in typical autumn/winter conditions, I use it with a Polartech Powerdry baselayer and it worked very well during the steeper more difficult sections without being too warm. The quality and fit is usual Arc'teryx excellence. Slim fit but definitely room for winter baselayers. I have the Atom SL jacket too, which I use on top for extra protection/insulation when exposed to the elements up on the plateau. This proved to be a great combination. Beads the drizzle well, resists most of the wind and the side panels keep enough ventilation for difficult to beat temperature regulation. Very highly recommended, would definitely buy again. Only point of note, It is very slightly 'roomier' than the SL jacket, I may have fitted into a small for a closer fit or with the medium I could at least wear two layers underneath. Otherwise this will be my go-to set up from now on. This renders most of my other gear redundant it is that good. Big thanks to Escape2 staff for helping me get both Atom SL jacket and Vest, awesome, exactly what I needed.

The North Face Andes Jacket
Monday, 19 November 2018  |  Kelly

I bought this jacket for my 14 year old daughter. Despite it saying boys, it is also suitable for girls. A lovely warm jacket that is very much on trend at the moment. Her twin brother now wants one too! It originally arrived promptly but as I was not in a calling card was left. It was then quite tricky to have it redelivered-this was an issue with APC and not escape2. Once in receipt of the jacket it was nicely packaged and with a personal message on the invoice which was a lovely touch!
I would definitely order another one for my son if delivery was with Royal Mail, which can be collected from local sorting office if I am not in.
