The Atmoos is a really nice looking jacket, with cool, understated good looks – but does it perform?
Odlo recommend the Atmoos for hiking and cycling and ‘going out’, but although we have no qualms about using it for both hiking and going out, serious cyclists would probably prefer a cycling-specific jacket, which this is not; for leisure cycling though it works fine.
The 2.5-layer Odlo Logic waterproof fabric keeps the rain and wind out and is also both light and packable. In terms of fit, the hood fits very well and the drop tail hem and ergonomic, Velcro-adjustable cuffs add the final touches to keeping the elements at bay.
The jacket’s zippers are all waterproof too, and little touches like the soft chin guard add to the comfort factor.
The slim fit is ideal for summer use when you won’t have many layers on underneath, but if you do plan on layering up beneath the Atmoos you may want to go for a larger size than usual.
Our only quibble with the jacket is the rather small hand pockets, which are only just big enough to get your hands into, let alone stuff like maps.
