Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight, nice fit, good wind protection I really like this jacket. Its lightweight makes it easy to wear and pack for travel. The cuffs are made of a knit material and fit snugly on the wrist to keep you warm and the zippered pockets are nice to have. The fit is trim and tapered at the waist. I initially ordered a Medium as that's my normal size, and the jacket fit just right but didn't allow for a sweater or vest to be worn underneath. I exchanged it for a Large and that works just right. The hood is great too and it doesn't fall over my eyes like the hoods on most coats. Even on sale this coat is expensive and more than I generally spend on a jacket, but I think the quality and design are worth the extra cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very warm and light weight I got this on close out, so really the 2014 version. I wanted something that I could ride my bike in on cold days without wearing a thousand layers. With a few 15 degree or so rides under my belt, it's been great- just a mid layer and I'm off. I was concerned about wind cutting through the fabric because the jacket itself is so light and the side panels are essentially fleece, however, its not the case. I have not experienced rain or snow yet but will be excited to see how it holds up. This jacked is very comfortable (like wearing a sleeping bag) and does not restrict any movement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Notes on extended wear.. If you buy this jacket, which I would highly recommend , you will likely end up wearing it to death, i.e. for everything, everywhere, all seasons, like I did. Here are a couple notes of things I noticed after extended wear and tear: The stretchy side panels of the jacket will stretch out. I wish I had bought the jacket a size smaller (it would have been a little snug at first, but after time I think that would have been a better fit). If you don't want the side panel material to pill (mine did after the first few washes), always wash it inside out. The outer fabric is so soft and lightweight it feels beautiful on, but it stains and attracts dirt like no other technical jacket I own. Expect to wash this piece lots and look after stains before they set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This jacket is awesome. Not much more to say, but I'll keep going. It's so versatile and packable, but what really stood out for me was the fit. I cannot say enough about the Arc'teryx women's sizing. The fit is perfect - I'm usually between sizes and I have a hard time finding clothing that has the right arm length, shoulder width and hip width. I'm 5'5" and 120lbs, and the small is perfect. I was worried that it would be bulky and shapeless, but it has a slim and flattering fit around the bust and waist. It's still roomy enough for a light sweater underneath. Do yourself a solid and buy this sweet jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best buys ever This hoody is so well-designed that I can actually be bothered to write a review! It's essentially windproof, super lightweight, comfortable, breathable, stretchy in all the right places, warm and packs down into a tiny package. I LOVE this piece. It's one of the best clothing items I have ever bought. It works as a jacket on cool fall/spring days, and as an insulating layer when it gets colder. I'm getting one for my little bro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from world's best jacket When I bought this jacket, I would have never imagined how much I would love this piece. Recently, a friend referred to it as the best jacket in the world and I agree. It is THE most versatile jacket ever: stylish, always warm, never too hot, the shape of the hoody is PERFECT, I wear it on high mountains, downtown, wherever...Bulk free, superlight, optimal warmth-to-weight ratio, if you want to buy one peace from Arc'teryx, get the Atom LT. It is easy to wash and dry, too. I'm observing some pilling on the side panels, but just very very slightly. I've had this jacket for a bit under a year and worn it year round! I take in on every hike, no matter how hot or cold the weather is. Considering buying a second one in another color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS JACKET! This jacket is amazing. I use it rock climbing, skiing, backpacking, hiking, and to go out in town. It fits really well, is VERY warm if I wear a fleece under it, but breathable for a fall hike with a t-shirt. The material is soft and packs very small and lightly. The hood is nice and large and actually covers my whole head. I'm 5'6" and 125lbs and ordered the small.. it's perfect. I love this jacket and highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight. Compact. Warm. Stylish. This is my first Arc'teryx product. Elegant details made this jacket a standout.. I took it with me on a month-long camping and sailing adventure to Australia. While many reviewers talked about it being warm in seriously cold temperatures, I found it to be perfectly comfortable in milder temps. It was great in the cool evenings and chilly early mornings, and perfect for windy sailing into the evenings. The pockets are comfy cozy. The inside pocket is roomy. Best of all, it packs into something that takes up about as much space as my birding field guide - only it weighs about as much as 6 paper clips. The jacket moves with you. It's not just about function, it's about stylish design. It'll be my go-to jacket from now on. My Patagonia down sweater jacket will be taking a back seat.

will the scotch guard change anything about this jacket? will it make it feel more stiff? will the color change?

Asked by: Ariel
Applying Scotchgard typically will not make the jacket stiffer, we recommend spot testing on the jacket to ensure it will not stain.
