Revamped for Spring 2020 is the Arc’teryx Nuclei FL Jacket. I’m a die-hard Atom LT hoody fan, which is a burly workhorse of a jacket. I managed to get my hands on an early sample of the Nuclei FL late last summer, so we’ve been playing together for the last 6 months. Here’s how the Arc’teryx Nuclei FL Jacket fared.
When I first saw the Therm-a-Rest Honcho Poncho at Outdoor Retailer a few years ago, I wrote it off as the world’s most gimmicky item. It arrived in my mailbox and proved me wrong. So very wrong. Is it a blanket? Is it a sleeping bag? Is it a life sized slice of American cheese? Whatever it is, it’s my favorite piece of gear.
Puffies have been my friend lately. With ambitious sufferfest mountain days, I often find myself hitting the trail early in the morning and slowly trudging out late at night when the sun is long gone. For days like these, I need insulation that moves with me but also doesn’t take up much space. The Adidas Outdoor Flyloft Jacket fits that bill.
