Why We Like It

The Atom LT is one of my favorite jackets of all time. I can comfortably wear this jacket in most conditions between 40-70 degrees because of its excellent breathability and insulation. Plus, as a hybrid jacket with synthetic insulation it will keep you warm even if it rains. An exceptionally comfortable jacket overall, one of my favorite features are wrist cuffs: they make it feel like the sleeves are hugging your arms. I've had mine for close to five years now and it performs just as well as the day I bought it – despite wearing it almost everyday in the Spring & Fall. Pair it with a rain shell and a base layer, and you'll be ready for any conditions the road throws at you.
