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.

Arcteryx Beta AR Jacket

The best waterproof jacket I've ever owned. As described - lightweight, tough and durable. Bought a Medium and it's roomy enough for layers underneath without losing any manoeuvrability. Can't fault it!

I use a backpack for the commute to work involving a train and bike. This item is a good size, sufficient for most items you would need everyday, with some spare space. It's well made and looks like it will last. Perhaps most importantly it's comfortable to wear. Fast delivery from Escape 2 with decent tracking - would buy again.

Just what I was looking for
Monday, 1 July 2019  |  Henry

I take pride in finding the right jacket for the right job. Some for -15c, some for walking the dogs etc. This jacket is amazing. I’ve not thoroughly tested it but I can tell it’s design and materials meet a certain standard above most. I know that I will love testing this in different climates and conditions with layers.

The one “issue” is the length of the arms, but this is intentional by design so you have complete arm movement without restrictions. This requires use of the Velcro wrist straps. This is an AR jacket and I believe there’s more casual designs if needed.
It’s as perfect as I expected, even the colour (conifer.) The service was fast and I love the personnel note.

Thank you,

Henry

Lost ...and found again. Sort of.
Tuesday, 11 June 2019  |  Mair

I bought this jacket for a January New York trip and it was just perfect. I used it as a mid-layer and it kept me toastie warm under a warm coat. Excellent weight and warmth in cool british spring. Chic too - dark Navy logo so no flash - just style! Then last month I left it behind on the train and sadly but unsurprisingly it was never found or returned. I was so pleased to find it again on the Escape 2 but a size smaller. I had no option but to drop a size myself. It was worth it.

Have been looking for the perfect jacket for a couple of years and at last found it! It felt right as soon as I put it on. Lightweight but warm and feels luxurious. Thanks Escape2 - will be back for more!

Super speedy service with nice touch of a hand written note inside the package - good price and jacket looks great - size large perfect for slim, 6ft son (these jackets seem to run a bit smaller than other brands, hence we ordered large & not medium). Really good shade of yellow - not neon and not mustard, just a spot on really bright yellow! Will definitely use Escape 2 again. Thanks!
