    Find your challenge from the mountains, not your gear.

    The Arc'teryx Men's Cerium SV Hooded Down Jacket is built with extreme functionality in mind, specifically for those challenging backcountry and alpine situations. When your life depends on your gear, the last thing you want to be thinking about is whether or not your jacket is up to the task. The Cerium starts with down composite mapping, which strategically places down and synthetic insulation into key areas. A DWR coating is used on the lightweight Airetica face fabric to help repel minimal amounts of moisture. Let's face it though, the places you're likely using this jacket, it's so high and cold that there's not much moisture around anyway. A stuff sack is included with the Cerium as well so it's not crowding up your pack.

    • Down composite mapping
    • 850 fill European goose down
    • Coreloft 100 and 140 insulation
    • DWR finish
    • Trim fit

    Tremendously warm

      In the snow and high country of Colorado this jacket has proven itself to be the warmest jacket I've owned. The hood is well designed and the overall fit is form fitting to allow for layering with a waterproof shell over top. I have never been cold in this jacket even to -20 F and in 30mph gusts of wind. I often find myself with just a t-shirt on underneath during any winter activity.

      Dopest Down Jacket

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

      This is my favorite jacket to wear in January in Utah. Super warm, the warmest. Super great fit. Looks super awesome. Stay away from snags though. I have caught it a few times. I just got a few patches but you can send it in for Arcteryx for repair. I damages two baffles and they charged me $80 to have it fixed. I recommend!

      Great for what is is meant for

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

      Super warm, comfortable, packs way down, light, sturdy material. This think cooks when you want it to. Yes, it is not made for rough conditions that will scrape, tear, grab, douse the outside. I use my shell if I plan on getting attacked by my surroundings. For backpacking basic conditions (backpacking, snowshoeing, everyday, sailing, etc.) works like a dream and for more aggressive or wet conditions, works great with a shell.

      Love-hate relationship.

      ALL - arcteryx is replacing ! for skiing and under a gore text layer highly recommend. very warm too. As I stated below, not good for serious climbing unless you have protective outer layer. bumping up to 3 stars from 2.

      All, this is a gorgeous, high quality and toasty warm jacket. I took it on a trip to Patagonia just a week ago and when at bivy it served me very very well.

      I do have a big issue with the jacket though : it's uber lightweight construction means it's a paper thin outer fabric that tears when belaying and/or rappelling!!! After summiting the temperature dropped and our team put on their puffys. At the base of the glacier, after a few hours of rappelling my jacket was the only one that was ripped up in 4 or more places on the elbows, the back etc....down flying around everywhere. This was my first trip using it.

      Arctrryx warranty is taking it back and repairing - possibly for a fee. That's good.

      The bad: They said the jacket is really meant to be worn under a protective gore Tex layer. Maybe that's good for skiing etc but when climbing serious stuff it doesn't make sense. No time for dress up / to mess around in your pack when seconds matter and it's sunny dry and cold...then you need to throw on a warm outer layer and focus on getting off mountain.... I need to focus on a lot of things at that moment, but keeping my jacket protected is not one of them!!

      It's crazy high quality, light, warm gorgeous but I really can't recommend it for any serious outdoor alpinist who needs a tool that is not so fragile.

      Below is Photo of the very last time it looked good before getting ripped up.

      Ps Arctrryx engineers : maybe you should use abrasion resistant material on elbows and back to balance weight with durability/functionality.

      Extremely warm and light weight

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

      I have owned the patagonia down sweater and other Arc gear and I was looking for something with a little more durability for outdoor climbing, hiking/ base camp. This jacket is about the same weight as the down sweater but is much warmer and constructed beautifully.

      The only exception, which I have seen reviewed on other sites, is the zipper that will release and move down spontaneously if the jacket is half zipped. Arc' has this on several products I have recently purchased and they say they have it so that this jacket does not rip under tension but I think it indicates cheap zippers in attempt to save weight. It is an annoyance when actually climbing or moving around.

      Other folks have reviewed the warmth and comfort and it is incredible and the fit is trim meaning that this can be layered with a shell for true waterproof comfort and protection. I was debating an XL but L for a 6 foot 2 frame was perfect. The covering is "ripstop" but is not as thick as the thorium jacket meaning that there is lighter weight with the possibility of less durability. The covering however is much more significant then the patagonia down sweater and other lighter weight down jackets.

      I know for climbing and base camp activities at high altitude this will be a great addition if the zipper situation is not too annoying. At single digit F temps this is just awesome. The hood is a key piece that is also wonderfully constructed. Large pockets and a great fit.

      Are the baffles sewn through or box-stitched?

      is it a slim fit and does it go past your waist?

      How will this jacket perform as a standalone piece, specifically against the wind? I live in Chicago, so need a VERY warm jacket, but one that can stand up to the wind coming off Lake Michigan

      Best Answer

      There are some other pieces from the Arc'teryx line better suited for braving the frigid winds coming off Lake Michigan. Here's a piece from the casual collection that's water proof, wind proof and uses down insulation:


      The Fission SV is completely water proof, wind proof and uses a great synthetic insulation. The Fission SV does not have pit zips:


      The Fission SL is completely water proof, wind proof and uses a great synthetic insulation as well. The Fission SL does have pit zips:


      The Kappa Insulated Hoodie is completely windproof and extremely water resistant:


      The Arc'terex website claims this is a trim fit, can you conferm?

      Best Answer

      Hey There,

      This jacket is indeed a trim fit. The trim fit is going to be similar to the athletic fit, but lower volume so it will layer well under a shell. If you have any more questions about this jacket or any other pieces, give me a call at 1-800-409-4502 ext 4446 or email at gconner@backcountry.com
