A featherweight wind layer for light-and-fast pursuits.

Whether it’s a cool-weather trail run or a multi-pitch rock route, the Arc’teryx Men’s Celeris jacket is designed to resist wind and light moisture when you need it and pack up small when you don’t. The stretchy, athletic fit and gusseted underarms give you unrestricted movement, and the hem draw cord seals out cold air.

Nice, but not trim

What you'd expect from Arc'teryx in terms of quality and looks. I feel the need to comment on the fit--in my eyes, it's not "Trim" as they say. I find the fit comparable to the Squamish, which is listed as "Relaxed." I found the fit of the Celeris to be roomy in the body and the sleeves, and the sleeves to be too long (my arms are a little short, but not that short). The sleeves adjust with velcro, but the velcro adds some ungainly weight to a featherweight jacket. This misses the mark for a superlight running jacket, which you'd likely be wearing over a thin layer (the old MH Geist (can't speak to the current Apparition) gets this just right, by contrast). If you get the fit right, though, or use it as emergency protection over layers, it's what you'd expect from Arc'teryx. Olympus Blue is a fantastic color.

Perfect for cool afternoons

I love this jacket! Besides its great looks, it is light and cool enough to wear even on warmer weather. However, I think they are perfect for cool afternoon hikes/walks/runs/rides. Very versatile and it packs really small. I took this jacket on a trip Europe, mostly because it packs so small but didn't expect to use it. Well, I used it almost every day because we spent time by the seashore and it tended to be windy and cool, specially in the afternoons and nights. What a great jacket! I wear it often in early morning running sessions, it definitely was design for active wear because it breaths well and keeps you warm and dry.

Can anyone help on whether this would work...

Can anyone help on whether this would work as the only layer, next to the skin? I'm looking for something that is windproof or wind-resistant, not insulated, and that would keep me freezing on downhill sections of an MTB trail, but not be too hot on the climbs. Thanks,

Responded on

I don't think it will work well as a high output piece that will breathe fast enough to deal with climbing. You'd be better off with a merino or synthetic base layer and then just stash this in your pocket for the descent.

Responded on

I'd direct you to check out the Accelero Jacket for this use. The Celeris is my go to for the descent on bikes (it packs to about the size of an orange) I wear the Accelero with an Arc'teryx Motus for cold weather and can wear it up and down. The Celeris breathes well, but not as well as the Accelero, but offers a bit more wind resistance.

Responded on

Thanks to everyone for the advice. I'll take a look at the Accelero. I live in the high desert of New Mexico, and in the spring and fall I don't sweat that much on the climbs (or it evaporates quickly), but the downhills can be quite chilling. Two layers, no matter how thin, generally seem to be too much.

It appears in the photos that there are now 2 side pockets on the newest version of the Celeris. The specs on BC and the Arc'teryx website list only 1 side pocket. Does anyone have the latest version to know which it is?

Responded on

The image is incorrect. The Celeris has one side pocket on the left side, which can be used to stuff the jacket.

Thin, light and shielding perfection.

This is made for activity in windy mild to warm climates. I love running and hiking in this. The fit is true to size, which is not the case with many Arc'teryx products. I needed a size L for my 6'2 175lbs frame.

Obviously this wind breaker is not warm. It's not exactly a wind stopper either, but it does keep you shielded and hold on to a good amount of body heat.

This combined with the Phase SL makes for an awesome out door high output activity combo. Great to have that single pocket for a key, phone, mp3, cash etc.

Detailing is great. Seems and construction very good. Also not as noisy as other breakers I have owned. Definitely not quiet either!

Great Windbreaker

Celeric Jacket is an extremely light weight windbreaker that can actually take a beating! I use mine for mountain biking and it works great. I'm 6' and weigh 175lbs and the large is perfect. Big enough to wear base layer and jersey underneath with no movement restrictions. Fallen several times on rocks and jacket still looks brand new.

the Celeris stuffs into it's pocket (which only makes it about half as small as it can be) and tucks nicely into pack lids and pockets of pants.

This is very minimal wing jacket, no frill at all. With that said, it must choose the user for sure. For me it wasn't worth spending $130. Also I dind't think the material was all that good running miles in cool drizzle weather. I have had better options such as MH Geist, which I LOVE that most and very similar concept as Celeris in my opinion.

Last note, can't Arc offer better color options? How about Grey? I can't stand BLUE, GREEN, RED, YELLOW, sure they stand out but not everyone wants such high visible color...thanks.

lightweight solutions

If you fastpack, run, or ride, you probably already know that most microweight wind/rain jackets aren't worth their salt in breathability or rain protection. The Celeris is a definitive answer, as a micro-packable (down to the size of a kitchen sponge!), yet highly breathable wind jacket that doesn't greenhouse on a hard climb, but protects you from the wind when you descend at mach 2. All of the fabric fibers of the jacket are also coated in a silicone sheath for fantastic water resistancy, without the stiffness of a full-bore Gore shell. Granted, not for running in a deluge, but definite protection in light rain and snow.

* fit is close to body, so size up if you're in between sizes

Differences between Accelero and Celeris jacket (use winter running)? Can I
it be packed into the pocket?Thanks

Best Answer Responded on

The Arc'teryx Celeris is a bit more wind and water-resistant, and can be packed into it's pocket. Accelero has better moisture and temperature management, but doesn't pack down quite as small (not into it's pocket). I like the Accelero for winter running, and wear a Celeris over the top if it's really windy, drizzly or for just a bit more warmth.

Appreciate the Celeris!

I am pleased withis this lightweight jacket and it has met my expectations. My only complaint is the single pocket. Why not two regular pockets? It is water resistant and a perfect jacket to take along just in case the weather changes. I appreciate the option that the Celeris provides.

How does the weight/durability of the...

How does the weight/durability of the fabric compare to that of the Patagonia Houdini? Also does it pack into it's own pocket into a tiny package?

Responded on

The houdini may have the edge by a small margin but both are ripstop and the stretch in this garment may very well be the only difference besides the lack of hood. The houdini has box stitched ripstop which adds to durability and prevents holes from ripping further which the stretch ripstop does not have.

Neither is going to survive a back slide down scree or hauling bags of oysters over your shoulder...

Loved it on the A.T.

Price aside, I love this wind jacket. I find it to be a no-brainer to pack. It functions wonderfully, even sheds water- though I wouldn't count on it as a rain jacket. It's not meant to be one. I hiked 82 miles on the A.T. this (early) spring and it really helped me regulate my temp on windy ridgelines. It is a very simple jacket made with quality materials. I don't know how it compares with every other wind jacket out there, because I haven't tested others. I plan to always throw it in my pack.

How about the windresistence(CFM??) & breathability between TNF Hydrogen Jacket & This Jacket? THX!

Responded on

I can't give you a number on the CFM but the breathability is probably about equal seeing as the materials are the same.

Tissue thin

I knew this jacket was going to be thin, but, it's REALLY THIN! Unless you must have everything Arc'teryx makes, save your money and find something else.

Responded on

Really thin is what I wanted. Live in a mainly dry and warm place - wind jacket rarely needed to light as possible to always pack is necessary. Seems like a comment from someone who doesn't realize different ppl live in different climates!

Arc'Teryx Celeris Jacket

Typical Arc'T price, not typical Arc'T quality and fit.. I bought this jacket for a light windshell to throw in my pocket while running. Very light as advertised, but the fit and quality seemed to be lacking. After putting the jacket on, it had a very baggie fit unlike most Arc'T shells, and was also very short. I purchased a large, which was the right size, but the jacket has a very generic cut to it. One of the biggest reasons that you pay so much for Arc'T clothing is for the materials and cut/fit. Not so much with the Celeris. For about 40 bucks less, you get better quality and a great athletic fitting jacket with the M.H. ghost anorak.

Pretty good....

Just got this windbreaker. The actual color is redder than in the photo - more of a brick-red than an orange. Good news is that BC matched the $119 price (as shown on Arc'Teryx's website). I like it and would recommend it. It is a simple design, and therefore probably not going to reveal all that much difference for having been made in China, as opposed to Canada. But, it's not bad... however if you're an Arc' fan and know what you're looking at, you'll see that this windbreaker is just not quite up to Canadian quality - but you REALLY have to know what you're looking at to tell - it's just a "feel" thing. It's just little things like the way it drapes, the straightness of the stitching lines, and a slight wavinees in the fabric.

Isn't the retail price for his jacket $119 not $149? I looked around and this site is the only one with this price.

Responded on

you can see if backcountry will do a price match, but backcountrys prices usually match up with the companys MSRP, or they sell it cheaper-------Just checked the new arcteryx website, it says the mrsp of this jacket is $119
