Arc'teryx Nuclei Hoody -

I'm predicting the Arc'teryx Men's Nuclei Hoody will be the most ordered jacket by Moosejaw employees this winter. What's not to love about this lightweight, compact, trim-fitting, insulating layer? I'll save you some searching.... there's nothing not to love about it. Insulated with synthetic Coreloft (with less in the sleeves and side panels to reduce bulk) this jacket eliminates cold spots and will keep you warm even when wet. The interior stow pocket and clip-in point ensure that the Nuclei is always ready for any trip.... especially a multi-pitch climb (but also especially for the day to day commute).

Arc'teryx Nuclei Hoody Reviews:


One of the best jackets I have ever owned, and most certainly the most versatile. Rain, I grab this, snow, I grab this, worn as a layer, I grab this. So lightweight it feels like I am feeling nothing, which means I have incredible mobility in this piece. The fit is fantastic -- I am 5'10", 175. The insulation is surprisingly warm, I thought this was going to be an issue since I am used to down jacket (I also own the cerium), but this synthetic fiber is the warmest I have ever owned. Packability is simply awesome. The Heron color is really nice looking, looks just like the pictures here on Zappos.

This is the best jacket that I have ever owned. It is warm, lightweight and packs up into a quart size bag. It is an amazing product. The jacket is "form-fitting cut" so I sized up from a medium to a large. I am 5'8", 165 pounds with a 40" chest. I am glad that I sized up. I prefer the extra room.
