Arc'teryx Atom SL Vest
Minimalist insulation for warmer days - versatile, breathable warmth. Ideal for multitude of active summer pursuits, from rock climbing to trekking.
The Micro Puff® Hoody is our lightest, most packable insulated jacket ever.
It took us nearly a decade to reimagine insulation, but we're pretty happy with the result—a jacket as impressively warm, light and packable as down, but that stays warm even when wet.
Down gets wet and loses its heat-trapping loft whilst synthetics never quite achieve the same warmth and compressibility. This is the perplexity of insulation. But after years of tinkering we've managed to solve for the worst of each through advanced research and development. Using a filament that feels like down plumes, and a patterning construction that prevents shifting, clumping, or cold spots, we've constructed a jacket that reimagines insulation.
Our combination of PlumaFill insulation and patent-pending construction achieves a previously unattained balance of warmth, weight and compressibility.
We ruled out dozens of technologies before getting to PlumaFill—a central fiber spiraled by fluffy microfilaments that traps heat like down, but stays warm when wet and never shifts or clumps. Paired with the lightest woven shell and liner fabric we've ever used, the insulation stays incredibly lofty and has a downlike touch.
The Micro Puff is the product of refinement through an iterative process of lab and field testing. We spent years tweaking filament sizes, types and quantities, then sent prototypes of various construction mock-ups into the field for feedback and improvement in order to get to this performance highpoint. The jacket is now a tester favourite.
