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.
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.
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.
