    Whoever this person is, they need to make a fully insulated (fill insulation instead of fleece on side panels) version of the Atom LT happen.

    • Geoff says:

      See the Nuclei FL or Proton LT

    • SSD says:

      They already do, it’s called Cold WX.

      • Marc says:

        Also the Atom AR, you just get a bit more insulation, no fleece side panels.

      • Kevin McDowell says:

        For summer in the Rockies, the Cold WX is too much insulation and too bulky (in my experience), but I often find the Atom LT is not quite enough because of the fleece side panels. 60 grams of coreloft/primaloft is just about right amount of fill for all around the body.
