what's a good light winter jacket? something under -10c
Arcteryx Atom AR Hoody is their all around winter jacket. Good for cold weather, but wont make you sweat up a storm when its +5 out either.

I would stay away from the light and super light options. Most dont have pockets and arent as durable. Fabric is too light according to reviews.

The Atom AR Hoody is not meant for -10C or you're going to have to layer up a lot underneath. It is definitely not a all around winter jacket. It's a midlayer. -10C you need an actual winter jacket or a down jacket.

As someone experiencing the polar vortex in Edmonton, I can confirm that the Atom AR is not a good standalone at -10. Maybe -5 at the lowest in a dry cold I’ll throw it on. I would recommend the Fission SV for truly cold temps. I can wear a T-shirt under that in -40 windchill conditions and am perfectly toasty.

Why do people talk about stuff they've not actually used?

SL, yes not durable for daily use. LT and above is meant to be daily wearable. There is always some wiggle room with this designations depending on how rough you are with your gear and your use.

Agreed. I personally think even the SL line can be worn everyday. It really depends on the application. Daily city use? Anything from Arc'teryx is fine!

The Fission SV is a better option, but it's Coreloft insulation does break down. I have a Fission SV from 2012, while it is still warmer than my Atom SV it isn't as warm as a down parka like the CG Expedition or Feathered Friends Icefall...The Fission SV has been my goto daily winter jacket for temps above -15C and still looks like new, but I did just buy a Camosun Parka (Sporting Life sale) which is warmer and good to around -15 to -20 without layering, but the hood isn't as good and I need a neck warmer and toque. The Fission SV is easier to layer than the Camosun though, so you could probably use it layered to colder temps. I still don't find the Fission SV layered to be as warm as an Expedition Parka though.

I remember when my Fission SV was new I could wear it closer to -20C without layering, similar to the Camosun. I read on a forum that an Arc'teryx rep said the Coreloft insulation can break down within a couple of months if it is compressed for longer periods of time, such as a person driving in it for a couple of hours a day and the back is being compressed against the seat.

Yeah, it's like a synthetic fill pillow. Eventually it'll lose it's loft potential. If you haven't already, try washing it (with tech wash) and sticking it in the dryer with tennis balls to puff it up again.

Thanks. I have already washed it with tech wash a few times and it does help, I haven't tried the tennis balls when drying it though. It is still probably the best jacket I have owned as it has gotten by far the most use. Even though synthetics do break down it is still a fairly warm jacket and the fit on it is excellent. When I bought the Camosun I was debating buying a new Fission SV, but the green one they had in medium had been returned, so I went with the Camosun instead (the Camosun being mostly down insulation also helped in that decision).

Thanks OP, I've been hoping to find a year-round (in Vancouver terms) jacket for a little while so picked up the Beta AR in "Rooibos". With layering it looks like it'll be a decent fall-winter-spring and skiing jacket, and $404 including tax is not bad. Free returns sealed the deal.

As a bonus, no PST on the order since Monod is in AB.
