Arc'teryx Men's Atom Lt Vest
Excellent as midlayer when skiing
I used this vest as an extra midlayer in cold weather when skiing. The low weight and snug fit made it almost unnoticeable when moving.

Excellent product - lightweight but effective.
I wore this "vest" on a 2 week ski trip to Montana and Wyoming and it was excellent. It packed small in my luggage and backpack, it helped to keep my core warm, even at temperatures of -20C!
Happy to recommend it!

How did I manage without this?
Warmth without bulk.So lightwieght. Very versatile. Used it instead of mid layer many days. Can be rolled up to fit in a ski jacket pocket so perfect if you're out all day in changing weather conditions.

Instant essential! Weighs nothing, incredibly warm, v breathable. Great for daily use, golf, as well as mountain activities. Much better than down, since down layers generally have v poor breathability. Have just purchased the sleeved version as well, for cold weather skiing.
I am 6'2" 190 lbs. The vest is perfect as size L, but the Atom LT hoodie is XL, as the L was a bit tight across the shoulders and short in the sleeves.
Overall brilliant product. Great colours too!

Highly versatile jacket - gives real warmth
Product makes for a perfect midlayer for skiing (as long as your arms don't typically get cold), but I have also used a lot for cycling, hiking etc as keeps you core body warm, but breathable, lightweight and you can compact down very small for travelling

Warm & Versatile
Rather than buying a heavy or very warm jacket that wouldn't see much use each year, I plumped for this vest / gilet. Wearing it under a softshell or thin packable jacket transforms those items into something much warmer, but the vest is packable enough to roll up and stuff in a bag or (reasonably sized) pocket if the temperature rises or you begin to do something more active. It's also great on its own over a t-shirt or baselayer. Good cut, well finished, easy care - definitely worth investing in.

An amazing level of warmth from a really thin jacket
I bought this product to go under my soft shell jacket. It is amazing. The material, fit and finish are superb. This thin vest is ideal for packing in a rucksack. I also wear this under fleeces or as an external jacket over t-shirts. I particularly like the internal zipped chest pocket.
