Hooded fiber jacket from the Arc & # 39; teryx brand designed to protect us in cold weather conditions.
The Atom LT Hoody jacket is light, warm, breathable and with a perfect pattern to allow mobility in any mountain sport, being highly recommended for activities that involve a lot of arm movement such as climbing, ice climbing, snowshoeing and ski touring or in other mainly aerobic situations. It can be used as an intermediate layer in extremely cold conditions but it is also a great single layer to use in intense activity or to keep warm when winter conditions require it. Comparatively, its insulation is comparable to that of a medium fleece but with a significantly lower weight and a much higher compactability.
Perfect to use as an insulating layer since its Coreloft & trade; Compact 60 provides adequate warmth and the necessary breathability. Coreloft & trade; it is a uniform material (it is not woven by means of warp and weft threads) formed by a mixture of multidenier silicone polyester fibers of various sizes, both in length and thickness; the shorter fibers are those that allow excellent thermal comfort by allowing air to be trapped in them and the continuous fibers give consistency to the whole and allow a good recovery of the garment after being subjected to compression. In fact, Coreloft & trade; it has been subjected to a process to compact it by 50% without thereby reducing its thermal capacities in the same proportion; In the case of the Atom LT Hoody, the filling quantity is 60 grams per square meter of fiber. Being hydrophobic material, it continues to keep you warm even when wet so it is an excellent material to use in humid conditions such as fog, storm or in case of excessive sweating if we have to increase our pace at a certain time.
The outer fabric Tyono & trade; 20 consists of a material made up of 100% elastic Ripstop Nylon of only 20 deniers, so we are faced with a fabric that is as strong and durable as it is light. It has been finished with a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) treatment that provides water repellency. In addition, it incorporates side panels made of elastic fleece fabric , a material mainly composed of polyester (94%) but with a good proportion of elastane (6%) to increase mobility and breathability. The result is a highly adaptable fabric that breathes and disperses moisture with a very pleasant touch.
The pre-shaped sleeves to adapt to the movement of the arms with a soft mesh interior and the light fleece side panels make this jacket very comfortable. Fitted and technical cut of the garment to adhere well to the movement of the body during the activity and to be able to use it without discomfort with other elements such as a third layer jacket, backpack or harness without forming uncomfortable wrinkles. The cuffs have been improved in this version to increase durability, facilitate layering and allow for easier removal of the garment. The hem of the jacket is laminated and adjustable by means of two elastic handles and the back hem is slightly longer to allow the body to flex without exposing the lower back.
The StormHood & trade; hood is water-repellent and has thermal insulation to protect us from unexpected rain during activity or to add more warmth when conditions require it. This hood is also pre-shaped for use with a helmet and is quick-adjustable by means of an elastic cord. It has a structured and integrated mini visor within the same hood.
Light jacket with great compression capacity, the result is a warm garment in only 375 grams of weight and compact in a very small size.
