The third season is approaching, the days are getting colder - but not as icy as in deep winter. Autumn temperatures therefore allow the climbing person in a T-shirt to embark on a route, while the belaying partner begins to shiver motionless. So what clothes to pack for climbing? Definitely a lightweight thermal jacket. For example the Atom LT Hoody from Arc'teryx.

First and foremost, a solid thermal jacket must be able to do one thing: provide warmth. The Atom LT Hoody does this very well - with synthetic insulation. The advantage of this over biological insulation, such as down, is its resistance to moisture, in which it still stores heat. The typical mid-layer jacket can also be worn solo without having to worry about the item of clothing becoming a sponge.

Comfortably warm belaying is thus guaranteed. However, if the temperatures drop so low, even for the intensive lead ascent, that climbing up in the T-shirt would be unreasonable, then the Atom LT Hoody also makes a good trap in the wall. On the one hand, the jacket weighs only 375 grams, on the other hand it is kept very puristic, figure-hugging and made of durable, yet elastic material. So it doesn't get in the way of technical, performance-oriented climbing either.
