Which is warmer: Montbell U.L. Down Jacket or Arc'Teryx Atom LT?
Greetings, The Montbell UL Down or the Arc'Teryx Atom LTCurious from those with direct experience, which of the two would be warmer? The LT has 60g primaloft, but only has a thin fleece under the arms and down the sides, which is more ideal for active moments. The montbell has 2oz of 800fp down.Thanks kindly!Brad
Seems to me these jackets have very different utility. The Atom is more of an action insulator like a fleece while a down jacket is a passive insulator.

Thanks Warren, exactly what i needed
I have both an atom lt hoody and a MB ExLight. I find they're both similar in warmth. Neither are designed to be super warm. There are much better reasons to choose one over the other. I love them both
