As a layering or casual outer wear it works.
January 21, 2011

This is a piece that works well as a core layering. I have the Atom LT Hoody and the Atom LT Vest and I use them both in colder weather. In Boston when it gets between 10 to 20 I layered with a cotton T, then a long sleeve dress shirt, then the Atom LT Vest, then the Atom LT Hoody and the warmth is really fine walking around outside. Once in the building, all I do is remove the Atom LT Hoody and work with the Atom LT Vest on, it looks cool and I get complements around Starbucks. If I feel the need to remove the Atom LT Vest, I do, and when I feel the need to get it back on, I do. These pieces just take care of all of my warmth at work and at play. Highly recommend this combination.

A superb vest- light weight, warm, great fit. Versatile- perfect layer for cold, and very good externally for cool. This packs tight and carries almost no weight, so it offers many options and many uses.

Arcteryx Atom Vest
April 25, 2011

I needed a light vest that would keep my core and lower back warm during cool days, and also to be a layer under a shell. The Atom is just flat out great. It's so light and form fitting that you forget you are wearing a vest. I'm 5-9 / 160 and the back coverage area is below the belt line which helps keep my lower back nice and warm. As for quality, anything Arcteryx makes is just flat out great!

I needed a vest for some additional core warmth for winter activities. I own the Atom LT and the Atom SV jackets and this was the perfect complement to them. The side stretch panels are great for flexibility and breathability.

Great Vest
May 10, 2011

I've had the Arc'teryx LT Atom vest for about 2 months and am extremely happy with my purchase. I was looking for a replacement for my 15 year old NF Denali vest, but was tired of fleece. There are only a handful of vests with smooth interiors and I'd been wanting to check out Actrx so went with this one. I was expecting a very athletic fit so ordered a size up, but at least for this item I feel the size is 'normal' rather than slim or fitted so I traded for my regular size. The outer material is very light rip-stop type nylon, but has held up well to several swipes of branches, handles, and other things I thought would probably rip or scratch it. I was caught in a heavy rain today and the material didn't appear to absorb any moisture, though I wouldn't say it shed it either. Insulation is light, yet very warm. It took a couple of days for it to fully loft, but now it's consistently warm. It's evenly distributed and hasn't moved around at all. Inner material is also smooth nylon. Very nice. Design is elegantly simple. Two side, microfleece lined pockets with zippers. One inner napolean pocket with zipper. Arm holes have non-elastic borders that fit well without binding. Contrary to most descriptions there is not a drawcord at the bottom (I emailed Actx and they said the promo material they sent to vendors was wrong). Instead there is a rubberized "bridge" at the bottom of the stretchy elastic side panel strips, between the insulated nylon panels front and back. I would probably prefer the drawcord, but will say the rubberized bridge functions well. The back panel had a drop hem which amply covers any trouser cleavage when bending and stooping. The microfleece lined collar is just the right height and functions great. I use this for general around town wear, hiking, layering under fleece and rain coats, road & mountain biking (can stuff down easily into a jersey pocket), and to the office. Looks good, works great. I say go for it!

Great looking vest, wish it was slightly warmer.
January 20, 2011

I purchased the vest cause I wanted something warm to wear indoors versus my Hyllus Hoody. The vest offers warmth in the core and obviously lets the arms to breathe. In this aspect, it works really well and it looks real good with a shirt as well. The fit is very good as expected from Arc'teryx and the features are very useful. The adjustable hem drawcord is great and keeps the vest snug at the waist. I purchased a M and a L since I couldn't figure out what size to purchase based on the existing reviews. However, after receiving both of them, I found the L to be the best fit. The medium fit me well but it was slightly snug. With the L, it fits just perfect and gives me enough room to layer. I'm 5'11" and weigh around 190 lbs. I have a 42" chest and 34 waist.

Best layer vest for cold mountain activities
February 20, 2011

This has been the best ever vest I have ever owned! I mainly use it for high energy activities in very cold weather. It really provides a lot a warmth for a very slim and non-puffy looking vest. It has a slightly slim fit, but it does have a lot stretch and flexibility so if you normally wear a large then you will be fine with the same size. The fact that it can pack so small into your backpack makes it an easy item to always have with you and use for all your adventures.

I bought this as a layering item for beneath a wool coat. Perfect slim fit, and not bulky. It's really comfortable, and suprisingly warm for it's weight. I find myself wearing it around the (chilly) office all the time. Love it!

The Arc'teryx Atom LT Vest is the perfect protection for your core during the spring, fall, and winter seasons. It's lightly insulated with PrimaLoft and there are 2 panels of Polartec Power Stretch, on the left and right, to help breathability if cardio kicks up a bit. The fit is definitely athletic. I'm 5'9" 145lbs athletic and I wear a medium ... It's a perfect fit! Small definitely would be cutting into my pits and large would leave too much space everywhere. If you've ever tried on the hoody or jacket version of this line, the fit is exactly the same. Love, love love this vest! ... So much so that I even have the hoody and non-hoody jacket versions =)

Just what I was looking for
February 24, 2011

I'm a snowboarder and travel photographer live in New York and travel the globe extensively. I was looking for a very thin vest to layer when the weather calls for it that would be warm, super light, but not make e look like a snowman. Another feature I was looking for was a fabric that would breath - A LOT. This nails it. It's adds superb warmth, is super thin, and it just breaths, it seems to regulate your temp perfectly. It really lets the excess heat out. Side panels are genius. Another great feature of this vest is I even wear this under my Prada coat when I need just a little extra warmth and it does not bulk it out and it looks cool and sophisticated. I like a flexible wardrobe.

Awesome Mid-Layer
September 08, 2011

Great for wearing as a mid-layer under an exterior shell or white coat in sone cold hospitals. I'm about 167 lbs and 5'11", the medium fit well over one or two thin layers (e.g. two shirts); a large would have been too billowy in the waist. Would highly recommend v. the sweater vests you get from designer stores.

Best light vest out there
January 24, 2011

I've been searching for the best vest out there without the bulk of down (marshmallow-man effect), but with more protection than a simple fleece vest. Products trumped by this vest: TNF Redpoint vest, Patagonia Nanopuff, Patagonia Micropuff, and several down vests ranging from 600 to 800 grade goose down. Sizing: 5'10 160lbs, Medium is perfect as an outer layer. This vest has plenty of length and has a drop tail back. One note on shell material, it is not as smooth and silky as the gore windstopper layer on the Arcteryx Kappa series, and so the fabric is slightly more "noisy". The polartec powerstretch material down the sides of the torso are stretchy and comfortable. Elastic cuffs at arm holes seal in heat. The collar height is pretty low, which allows me to layer more effectively without bulking up the neck area. Altrec now has unlimited lifetime return policy which is awesome!

Great vest!
January 23, 2012

This is a great vest! It weighs next to nothing (7-9 oz.) and is very comfortable to wear. I walk every morning and I wear this vest with two layers under it in 22 - 30 degree weather and stay very comfortable. I plan on taking it with me when I hike because I won't even know it is in my pack. I am 6'1" and weigh 201 and a large fits perfectly. The sides have a windstopper material that doesn't keep out all the wind, but it doesn't bother me either. When I get warmed up, the little bit of cool on my sides feel pretty good. I would highly recommend this vest! It is a little pricey, but good equipment usually is.

Great for an active mid/outer layer
December 30, 2010

I bought this vest after seeing the one my wife had. I use it for layering with a shell for lift skiing, and with or without a shell for cross-country/backcountry skiing. The fit is Arc'teryx "athletic". It fits fine over both an under layer and a mid-weight layer of insulation, but is close with no bulk. The athletic fit works great under a shell. The side panels are a stretchy fleece for great mobility and breathability. I'm 5'10 and 160lbs. I bought a medium and would not want it to fit any slimmer. It's really warm for its size and weight ! It's typical superb Arc'teryx quality.

Warm, versatile and looks good
February 08, 2012

I bought the Arcteryx LT Atom vest about a year ago and think it's great. I was looking for a non-fleece vest that could handle my outdoor activities (hiking, canoing, XC skiiing), as well as look good around town. This vest definitely fits the bill. It has been perfect for this winter in Wisconsin since the temps have been mid-30's and 40's for months. On warmer days I just wear the vest and on cooler ones add a light shell. Specific features I like are the non-shiny, yet difficult to mar outer layer. I've run into many things that should have at least scratched it, if not ripped it, and it still looks new. The microfleece collar and pocket linings are a nice touch on brisk days. The side panels provide plenty of forgiveness for layering or body shape fluctuations. It also seems more "regularly" sized compared to most "slim" fitting options saturating the market. Overall, I give it an A+.

Outstanding Vest!
July 25, 2012

The Atom LT vest is very warm, compacts down to nearly nothing and fits great. I really like this vest! It's nice to be able to keep your core warm while keeping your arms free to do other things. It's super comfy and looks pretty good too. I'm 5'10" 165lbs and a medium fits me perfectly. The drawstring on the bottom of the vest is a nice touch.

Great casual vest
April 16, 2011

I would rate this vest as more casual and outdoors than some of the other higher end vests that you might wear to the office with a long-sleeves white shirt. The material is on the thin side but it looks good and fits very well. Should work out well for cooler spring weather. I like that the collar stays up or looks good folded down. The stretchy side panels are of a different shade but still a nice complement to the overall vest, mine is black. Overall this vest is different than my other vests so it's a great addition and I am very happy with my purchase. BTW, the logo looks good too (not too big, not too small). It gets noticed because it's "different."

Arc'teryx Quality Never Fails

I bought this vest for my husband. The Arc'teryx Atom LT Vest is very functional and very stylish as well. It is the perfect protection for the spring, fall, and winter seasons. It's lightly insulated with PrimaLoft and there are 2 panels of Polartec Power Stretch. The fit is athletic. He uses it under his ski jacket for extra warmth. He also uses it on hiking excursions. Altrec was very helpful when I was researching this product. He loves this vest!

Great vest... worth the price
October 30, 2012

I've been reluctant to buy this vest for a long time finally decide to get one since I love Atom SV hoody so much and hope this would be as good. The main goal is for golfing in cold and windy day. Just test this out the day the weather is really bad 43* and 20 - 25 mph wind gust. I have this over my normal long sleeve shirt and I never felt a cold at all. It is unbelievably warm for a vest. I have never been so happy with the purchase and this one stand out. In fact, I am very happy with every Arcteryx product I own. Very expensive but the quality is top notch, performance is outstanding.

Atom LT Vest
January 18, 2011

Excellent...love it. Superior warmth to weight ratio. I really appreciate Arc'teryx's philosophy of manufacturing products that are of good quality AND can be used for a number of cold weather applications. The Atom LT Vest is one of their pieces I would recommend. Here in Nashville, it can get fairly cold (down to single digits), but most of the winter, averages are around 30 degs. (not a need to wear the 'big chill parka')...especially now with the Atom Vest. A typical upper body layering set up now is: a midweight pullover, the Atom Vest and maybe the Arc'teryx Covert Cardigan on top...that's about it down to 20 degs! And if it gets crazy cold and nasty, I would trade the Cardigan for the Atlas SV. The vest (as with most Arc'teryx clothing) is designed to fit fairly toned bodies...fairly snug. Me: 6' 175lbs., 43" chest, and the large is perfect; I don't think a Medium would work for me. As for durability...I'm pretty sure you won't see me running through dense underbrush with the Atom as an outer layer - as I don't think it was designed for such.

Excellent vest. Light Weight, warm and fits great. But this is definlty is not for someone that has a belly. It will make you look like a pregnat woman with the strechy sides. Very warm pocket and well thought out inner zipper pocket. Unlike other bulky insulated vest this one has high mobility.
