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.
Tough and toasty Primaloft Gold winter belay jacket for keeping warm when resting, at belay stances, and between those stints of being a hero.
Whether you're crawling out of your tent on a cold morning, belaying your partner from the top of a pitch, waiting for the midnight changeover on a 24 hour enduro, or emerging from an open water swim, who would say no to being swaddled by 100gsm of Primaloft Gold insulation?
Apogee is the ultimate protection for those cold damp winters, we can't think of a scenario where we wouldn't want one in our packs.
Designed for warming up after working hard in cold climates, Apogee's water resistant outer can more than handle the demands of hero life. The low maintenance, toasty Primaloft Gold fill retains thermal properties when wet, and dries quickly.
With frozen belayers in mind, a helmet compatible hood, integrated wrist-warmers, and an internal zip baffle fend off draughts. The two-way zip makes it comfy over a harness, and a relaxed cut lets you layer up when the temperatures plummet. With less insulation in the arms and hood it allows for more freedom of movement.
"This has quickly become my number one go-to-jacket! I love the bright colour and simplicity, and it performs exceptionally well. It is baggy enough to fit a good amount of layers underneath, but smart fitting enough to look great as a casual about-town jacket too. The pockets are nice and big with a comfortably fitting hood. This jacket has kept me warm skiing in minus-ten sunshine, and winter climbing in gruelling Scottish winter. The fact that it is synthetic means I can worry less if it gets a bit wet. I highly recommend the Apogee jacket as a comfortable, versatile and very attractive jacket." - Anna Wells

A bit about PRIMALOFT® GOLD
Primaloft Gold is a synthetic fibre which create millions of tiny air pockets to trap body heat, keeping you warm in colder conditions. It uses a water repellent finish to improve performance in extreme conditions, maintaining its thermal properties even when wet. Primaloft Gold has a better warmth to weight ratio than standard synthetic fibres. It's also easy to care for, packable, breathable, and super soft: mega!
