Lightweight, but as comfortable as a good sleeping bag - all women should have an Atom SL Hoody by Arc'teryx hanging in their closet! The slim-fit hooded jacket for women is in its element when things get active. It keeps the torso warm and also has a great range of motion. The Coreloft insulation on the torso and in the arms and hood keeps sensitive areas wrapped up warm. The moisture-repellent outer layer with DWR coating keeps drizzle at bay. And the taffeta fabric in the Atom Hoody protects against wind. All this means that the synthetic jacket by Arc'teryx can be worn without a layer on top, no problem.
All Atom models by Arc'teryx can be packed and stowed in their own pocket. A real plus when carrying a backpack for several days or weeks at a time. Just give the synthetic jacket a quick shake and it regains its volume.
Two hand pockets provide enough space for a few small items and the helmet-compatible Storm Hood is easily adjustable. The Arc'teryx Atom SL Hoody's No Slip Zip is a real gem. The zip is secured by small bumps on every twelfth tooth. This prevents the zip from opening on its own, but it can still be easily undone with one hand.
