Good Jacket but Patagonia Better

My Patagonia down jacket was due to be replaced after years of faithfully being my go to. I decided to change it up and go with something different. After doing a bunch of research it came down to Black Diamond, Mammut, or Arcteryx. They all had their pros and cons and I couldn’t find a factor that made one clearly better than the others. But I always wanted an Arcteryx jacket so that was my deciding factor and I ordered this jacket. I have other Arc products and although expensive are always quality. All in all it’s a good looking well made jacket. But the reason I’m returning it and going back to Patagonia is that for the price I think the Patagonia is a better jacket for a better price. The margin isn’t much, I just think the Patagonia is a little bit better in every regard and the Arc jacket’s fit is a little off for me. I’m 6’2” and slim and the Arc XL is a little wide (something I was a little surprised by considering Arc products are typically made slim or a little small) which looks big but too short for me. The quality is close but the Arc felt a little cheap in comparison and it didn’t have any features that set it apart. Although I don’t knock anyone for buying this jacket because like I said it is a quality well made jacket, I couldn’t justify spending extra for a inferior product, regardless of how minimal it is, just for the logo. Hopefully this helps someone else in some way and happy shopping!!

I have other Arc’teryx products and my plan for this is everyday wear and a mid layer under my shell. I had originally ordered a medium as that is what my shell size Is, but for this it was too small. Returned for a Large and the fit is perfect. I’ve used it a few times now and perfect! Highly recommend.

Length is too short, sleeves are way too short, and it’s tight in the chest area. I tried sizing up to an XL but it was way too baggy. If you’re over 6 ft this jacket probably won’t fit right.

My previously Patagonia jacket never seemed to keep me warm enough in Denver winters, so I switched to the Arc'teryx Cerium LT hooded jacket, and I've been very happy with the change. I feel warmer in this jacket and plan to use it for next few winters.

As usual Arc'teryx hits a home run. This jacket is incredibly warm for the weight and bulk. Sizing is exactly the same as my Cerium LT vest and seems to be on par with most other Arc'teryx jackets. Note: At 6' 5" a size medium fits me but it is just a tiny bit short which isn't a big deal for me but if you're tall this is not a super long cut jacket.

I used this jacket every day this winter, and continue to use it on colder days into the spring. Except for the coldest days (<15 degrees F), this was a little too warm to ski in - assuming you're wearing a shell and base layer. For hiking, I still wouldn't choose it above freezing. Honestly, I used it primarily for walking the dog and getting from place to place. I loved that I was warm, but couldn't tell I was wearing a jacket since it is so light. It has kept me warm in snowstorms even without a shell due to the DWR coating, although I wouldn't recommend it for long. Durability could be an issue if you are rough with it as it is very thin. I actually really like the zipper, but comments about down coming out of the seams are valid. Every now and then you need to pull a feather out. It's no big deal, there are plenty of them in there.

This jacket is very warm and well constructed. It’s is very light and comes with a pouch to pack into. The only complaint I have is I wish the jacket would just pack into a pocket like the Spyder down jacket I have.

I’ve had mine for a few years and love it. While I wish it had a draw string at the waist, the athletic fit does help stay snug. I have had teeny tiny feathers show just a few times over the last three years but as directed, I’ve never pulled them out. I have a husky/heeler mix young pup who loves the snow and has gotten himself excited and goes over threshold. He’s jumped at me countless times and wrapped his paws around my arms. The jacket has yet to puncture. My wife has gone through two Patgonia down jackets. The second our dog touches her jacket, there’s a hole. I always buy Arc’teryx because of the quality and this jacket has been so good I’m looking for a second color.

The large fits snug. Super warm for the weight - comfortable down to around 20 with just a tee shirt underneath. Has shed some down but not to the level as commented by other reviews. Does feel fragile however have not had an issue to date (I am careful with it). Down quality seems premium, this jacket replaced a Patagonia down sweater which annoyed me as at times I could feel the down poking me through the sleeves. Not the case with this jacket.

This jacket is the least durable piece of outdoor gear I have ever owned. When it first shipped to me there was down falling out of the jacket. I reported this to backcountry and they sent me a new one. I have had the jacket for less than a year, and only wear it during ski season. I have not been hard on this jacket. Every time I pick it up, there is down falling out of it from a new spot. It gets these micro tears in it all over the coat and the down just falls out. I expected a lot more for how much money I spent on this jacket. Wishing I had gone with a Patagonia down for a lot less money. My wife has the Patagonia down sweater and as far as I can tell it is equally as warm as this Arcteryx jacket.

This jacket is incredibly lightweight and warm at the same time! It will keep you snug and warm for days. It is worth a pretty penny but certainly worth the investment.

While cutting is great, this jacket sheds feather everywhere! It kept me pretty warm during the first few use, but am not sure how long it will last, given the rate it is shedding feather. Most of the feathers are really small; am not sure if this is telling of the quality, as the feathers from my other down jackets are usually a lot bigger. Due to the size of the feathers, they are usually coming out from the stitch lines. Definitely not worth the price, in my opinion. Had I known, would not buy this even if it is cheaper. Rather disappointed with my first Arc'teryx jacket.

This is my second Arcteryx jacket. Fit well. I put it on for one time and it kept me warm during a star-gazing session while I stayed still. Quality-wise, it has feather issues as other reviews point out. Noticeable on the inner layer hoody but acceptable at the moment. Besides that, I would like to point out the poor stitching quality around cuff. Not sure if this is common or it's just bad luck for me. I would expect better quality from this price level.

Like all my Arcteryx jackets, this “Trim” fit works well for me. I’m 6’3” and 195 lbs. This is an XL. The fabric is a bit heavier than my Mountain Hardwear Ghost Whisperer, yet very lightweight compared to most. It’s warmer than the GW as well. Depending on the temperature and/or the nature of the exercise, I might use this rather than the GW. As a stand-alone piece, this works better in my opinion. As a midlayer, the Ghost Whisperer might be the better choice as it’s 3-4 oz lighter and almost as warm. For what it’s worth, I have the “older” Ghost Whisperer with the 7-8 denier outer fabric.- it’s thin as tissue paper, yet very durable. I notice now that they’ve changed it to 10 denier like the Cerium LT. Although the Arcteryx arms are long enough, (barely!) the GW’s arms are at least 2 inches longer which I prefer. Both layer well under my Arcteryx Alpha FL or Beta LT shells. No feathers escaping yet and the zippers work well to this point. Both are quality pieces and fulfill slightly different needs. I gave this 4 stars because I think the sleeves could be 1” longer. For some, they’re probably just right. I like a minimum 37” sleeve. The hem length is perfect- the dropped back covers your butt! The addition of the hem cinching pulls is perfect! I highly recommend this piece. I’m a hopeless Arcteryx fan. ****UPDATE**** Zipper holding up well but impossible to use with gloves. Other than the slim fit which I love in this Cerium, the llbean Ultralight Down hoody is a better product. Fabric feels softer, down is better-water repelling and slightly more of it) and an adjustable hood. Also a WAY better zipper and chest pocket. And only a bit heavier. And less expensive!

I should have listened to the reviews. While this jacket is very warm, it constantly sheds feathers. I contacted Arc'teryx and they suggested for me to push the feathers back in. Pushing the feather back in is a silly idea. Some of these feathers are TINY. And the large ones are impossible to push back in.

How does the fit compare to Atom LT which is a Trim fit (my preference)?

The Cerium LT will fit very similar to the Atom LT.

>Rating:

What color is proteus when you see it in person? Is it grey or silver as seen in the image, or a totally different color?

Hey Greg, the Proteus color is very true to color in the photo. I would call it medium grey/silver.

>Rating:

Arcteryx Cerium LT hoody has an old version and a revised version which fixes issue(s) on the old version. Is this item (ARC00P6) the revised version? I am planning to buy a M size black or Pompeii/Matador.
