    A lightweight down jacket for cloudless, chilly days.

    The Arc'teryx Women's Cerium LT Hooded Down Jacket is the lightest piece in the Cerium series, and possibly the warmest, too. The one-two punch of the high-tenacity Arato face fabric and high-warmth-low-weight of the 850-fill European goose down insulation make this piece a real knock-out when it comes to staying warm in cold and dry conditions. 

    When it comes to winning money and down insulation, the higher the number, the better off you'll be. So, a higher fill-power down, like the 850-fill used in the Cerium LT, refers to how much space a single ounce of down occupies. And the more space used, means more air that's trapped between the fibers of the down. That trapped air creates a barrier between hot and cold, so warm air stays near you, and cold air stays away. If you take this logic one step further, one ounce of a particular down takes up more space than other type of down, it stands to reason that you'll need less of the 'bigger' down to keep you warm, thus reducing the weight of your jacket. Case in point, the Cerium's 850-fill down keeps you toasty-warm. The whole winning money thing, well, the Cerium can't do much for you there.

    And since untreated down doesn't work when wet, the folks at Arc'teryx put synthetic insulation in places most likely to get wet. This translates into synthetic insulation on your shoulders, collar, hem, and armpits, along with a DWR-finish that withstands a light drizzle until you reach shelter, without sacrificing too much warmth. This super-light jacket also comes with it's own stuff sack, so the jacket remains protected from pokes and prods. Not to mention, the same down hugging your tummy also swaddles your melon, courtesy of the insulated low-profile StormHood.

    Call me goldilocks

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Xl

    Finally a jacket that fits my wide shoulders and horror (breasts). This is the only jacket I have tried on this year that actually lets me move my arms freely. I am wide shouldered but not enormous I weigh a lot (damn muscles) but am generally a large up top and medium/large bottom. I had to buy this in an XL. It fits my shoulders and chest with ease and wasnt geossly baggy everywhere else. I still have loads of room for layers under there. I was trying on larges in mountain hardwear, north face, marmot, mammut, REI, ll bean, OR, Patagonia all of which were too tight in the shoulders or chest if I tried their xl versions I swam in them everywhere. So I think I can say that these ceriums must run a bit small seeing that I have essentially tried every other brand on this year. Ok so on to the good stuff and the answer to my two plus year search to replace my ten year old MH jacket.



    Pros: love the marianas color, very pretty and neutral and the orange cuffs/trim give it a kick. The fabric is light and flexible, the down doesn't poke through the fabric. I don't look like the Michelin or stay puffed marshmallow man and actually look as if I have a waist. The hood fits nicely and stays put, doesn't get in the way and actually keeps my head and neck warm. I have not tried it in snow because the snow gods have been cruel this year and left us mostly dry. I have stood and watched stars in 25 degree weather with only a t shirt underneath and stayed mostly ok, I'm always cold so that's saying a lot.



    Cons: the price is up there, as in investment up there so I am afraid to wear it since I have a new lab puppy. Big drawback for me is that there is no chest pocket. Wicked bummer since I love lip balm and keeping my cash close to my heart. There is no bottom drawstring for me not really an issue I never use them anyway even if I have them. Last con is the zipper is tiny and so is the fob definitely not doable with gloves or mits on so I will get a fob thing,



    Summary: quality down responsibly sourced good fitting great looking down jacket. I'm not freezing which is awesome!!!!! Finally a winner.

    I love it!

    • Size Bought: Medium

    I have been shopping for over a year and tried all different kinds of high loft packable down jackets. This one is incredible! It looks good, it packs down small, and is super warm! I will be taking this jacket with me everywhere!

    Won my wife over

      I'm somewhat of a label junkie, and as such I'm picky about my gear. My wife had always been someone that prefers to go the other route, usually feeling an Old Navy jacket is pretty much as good as any. Coincidentally she also suffers from some physical maladies that are greatly amplified based upon the temperature she is in. Well for Valentine's Day I thought, hey the red one is awesome and and a good deal so let's surprise her with a jacket. She was not pleased I would spend so much on something nonessential. That was almost 2 years ago, since then I've routinely heard her tell people how wrong she was. She swears by this jacket, it's one of the best investments we could've made. Fits great, super warm, not bulky. It's just an awesome piece of gear.

      On the coldest of days

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size

      Got this as a gift fro my friend and she reports that it fits snug and comfortable with room to wear base and fleece layers underneath. "I can wear it on the coldest of days" great for around town or out in the mountains.

      Solid design

      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: Medium

      Great for skiing, hiking, backpacking, or round the town errands. Flattering and functional. Perfect extra layer, light and comes with own bag so packing it down on a moments notice is a breeze. Definitely size up!

      Love!

      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small

      I cannot say enough good things about this jacket. The slim fit makes it flattering for a puffy. It's extremely lightweight and very warm.

      I'm not the biggest fan of the orange elastic that accents the Marianas, but the primary color of the jacket is amazing.

      good fitting hood, warm.

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: L and XL

      I've owned a couple of other down jackets and there are some features about this one that are great. The hood fits well and is also adjustable at the back so that it doesn't fall over your eyes. The zipper is easy to use and stays closed (unlike some!) There are no cold spots. I initially brought a L (I am a size 10) but it was too snug round the chest so I returned it for an XL. The XL seemed to be more of an XXL - the jump up in size was a lot. The upper arms and especially the bottom were now too big. The arms I could deal with, but there is no elastic or drawstring round the hem, and it felt drafty because it was too big. I wore it over a shirt and a fleece, but still too big. This is sad, because it feels like a great jacket both for backpacking and around town. If the fit is right for you, I would definitely recommend it.

      Fantastic Jacket

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small

      I bought this jacket speifically for a thru hike of the PCT. However, before I hit the trail, I spent a winter working at a Dog sledding outfitter in the Yukon. I was surprised to find that I could wear this jacket in sub arctic conditions while being active and stay toasty warm. The jacket has a flattering shape--and despite being Ultra light--it has a hood with drawstring closure and good pockets. The only feature I wish they had kept would be drawstring along the bottom of the jacket to block out drafts in windy conditions. It packs up small. I would not wear this jacket for outdoor work or bouldering on granite--as the material is thin and would easily rip or snag---but for hiking, skiing and travel---this is a great choice.

      NEW WINTER FAV

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size

      This jacket is not only super light-weight but it also provides great warmth as well. It is also true to size. Would absolutely recommend it to anyone who wants a great winter jacket without all the weight.

      Love it!

        This jacket is light, warm and feels just right. I am 5'7", 120 lbs bought size L and I am very happy with the fit. Everything about this jacket is right, I live on the west coast of BC and our winter is usually mild and I can wear it every day.

        Love it so far

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Medium

        I haven't actually worn this yet; that's why I couldn't give it five stars. But when I tried it on after receiving it at home by mail I fell in love immediately. Very lightweight and seems like it will be super warm. The hood fits nicely even with my hair up in a bun. I really like that it has a cinch cord to tighten the elastic around my face if it's windy. I am a size 6 and the medium is comfortable with a microfleece sweater underneath. I could probably even wear a small (I am small chested).

        busty folks should size up

        • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
        • Fit: Runs small
        • Size Bought: medium

        I am a size 8. I ordered a medium and the jacket fit everywhere except my chest (according to the measurements I should have been good. I have a relatively small rib cage but I'm a D+ in cup size. ). I returned it for a large because loft is needed for down to provide maximum warmth.

        I live in an area that gets down to 10 below in the winter. With a mid-layer underneath, would this jacket keep me warm during those days?
