Arc'teryx Atom SL Hoody Men's
The Arc'teryx Atom SL Hoody Men's offers nothing more than the core, literally, level of insulation for milder conditions that don't require bulky insulation but do require the benefits of a softshell. Basically, it's designed for "summer" conditions - fog, sudden thundershowers, and gusting wind.
The Atom SL Hoody provides the same level of warmth as a lightweight fleece but at a significantly lower weight. Coreloft™ Compact 40 insulation is highly compressible and insulates when wet, unlike fleece. The lightweight Tyono™ 20 shell material is highly durable for its weight and is treated with a DWR to repel light rain and snow. Other features include a helmet-compatible StormHood™, a trim fit to maximise breathability, lightweight fleece side panels to aid thermal regulation, and articulated sleeves and gusseted underarms extend freedom of movement.
This lightweight, versatile, and weather-resistant softshell compresses down tightly to fit into backpacks as just-in-case insulation in milder conditions.

Polygiene® Permanent Odour Control
Polygiene® is a permanent odour control finish designed to stop clothes from smelling. It uses a natural silver salt finish that inhibits the growth of odour-causing bacteria and fungi on the surface of your clothes, leaving them feeling and smelling fresher for longer even after heavy use and hard exertion. It’s tested to be completely skin-friendly, will last the lifetime of the garment, and it means fewer harsh wash cycles are needed to maintain your outdoor wear.

super light is right! this has got to be one of the most comfortable jackets on the market for three season active outdoors pursuits. i have been climbing and tramping in this as a go to jacket since the end of summer. it moves, it sits well, it fits (183cm tall, 88kg - size large) and it breaths extremely well. i am thinking of getting another so i can have one when the other is getting laundered., and the new colours are great.
