    Ultralight warmth for the backcountry.

    Offering ample warmth in an ultralight package, the Arc'teryx Men's Cerium LT Vest keeps you toasty and comfortable during chilly dawn patrols and cold winter hikes. This insulated vest features Down Composite Mapping with strategically placed 850-fill European white goose down for maximum warmth, along with Coreloft 100 insulation for a perfect blend of warmth and moisture management. Down also keeps this vest extremely compressible, which, along with the trim fit, allows for comfortable layering under a technical shell. The incredibly light Arato 10 face fabric features a water-resistant DWR finish that resists light flurries when you're skinning up your favorite tree stash, and the vest's zippered hand pockets include a stuff sack for easy storage.

    A little Tight

    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 120lbs

    I got this in a medium which usually fits pretty well. I do have broad shoulders and it feels a little tight around the shoulder area. Its not a big inconvenience as I'm not doing a lot of physical activity in this vest. it is absolutely warm and looks great.

    Light, warm, stylish, but VERY fitted

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    I'm 5'8" and about 170, athletic but not 25 year old thin athletic. I typically fall between a medium and a large (my issue is usually shoulders and arms, and I'm a 41 dress coat). I wanted a slimmer look with this vest, and because there are no shoulders or arms on a vest... I went with the medium. This thing will keep me off the pizza and beer for sure. So that's a win win. Very happy with purchase.

    Lightweight, stylish, and junk

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 190lbs

    Bought this vest a little leas than a year ago. Loved it. Its lightweight, stylish, and pretty warm. Zippers are trash though. Then I noticed a tear along the seam on the back. Now I just wear it around town, nothing rugged...walking, standing, sitting. Contacted Arcteryx customer support. They told me that the split is wear and tear however if I sent it in they could repair it with...TAPE! For the money youre going to spend on this vest, get one thats higher quality. Extremely disappointed and basically wasted $250.

    High Quality

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    My only regret is "caribou" which might be better described at "shit brown". I have a black Cerium LT jacket that isgreat, thought I'd try a different color for an intermediate layer. But typical Arcteryx quality. I'm a 40-42 regular suit kind of guy, six feet tall. This fit and does the job perfectly, albeit brownly.

    AMAZING VEST

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Men's small
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 120lbs

    I was on the fence about getting a vest for a couple of years, but decided to pull the trigger last week. AND WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG?!! This vest is amazingly light and warm. Yes, it is warm. Although some reviewers said it ran small, I'd say it is fitted in the hips/waist, but roomier in the chest, arms and shoulder (though not a relaxed fit - more athletic). I'm 5'5, 120lbs, 34D with broad shoulders and straight/slender figure from waist down (not hips/butt). I usually get a men's small in Arcteryx because of the shoulders and chest, and that's what I got in this vest. I will say the waist/hip area didn't have as much room as their other products, but it still had enough room for me. So, if you're a little larger in the midsection, you may want to size up. I've tried on the Patagonia (men's) vest and that one super snug in the waist/hips. Not this vest. I did experience some feathers escaping, though not a huge amount. I've noticed with any down item, when first bought/used, will have an occasional feather coming out, which is what I experienced here. If you're looking for a lightweight, but warm vest...this is it.

    When Ounces Count

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 195lbs

    Throw this in your bag for that peak, or backpacking in chilly weather. You won't feel it and you'll be warm when you stop moving, enjoy the summit, or sit around the camp fire. I prefer to wear it underneath a shell for maximum warmth.

    Great Midlayer

      This is a great layer to wear under a shell on a colder day or on its own on a cool dry day. Plus the lightweight down fill fits close to you without a lot of bulk so you may be able to fit it under a slimmer jacket or something..

      Awesome lite but warm

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'9"
      • Weight: 167lbs

      I like the athletic fit. Trim fit is awesome and does not have extra baggy space in belly and waist area that lets the cold air in like most other vests and jackets. It is surprisingly warm for how lite it is, because it is an extremely lite weight item.

      Fine vest, runs small

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 5'7"
      • Weight: 160lbs

      This is an excellent vest, with just the right amount of fill and superb construction. If you aren't allergic to the incredibly high price, this is the vest for you. As for sizing, I am a pretty true medium, but the medium fit like a sausage casing. The large is just right.

      "Kept Me Warm in a Midwest Winter"

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 6'1"

      I gave this vest as a gift to my dear dear friend, who sadly for all involved, lives quite far away in the scenic and polar climate of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The DWR coating has held up well so far, allowing snow, sleet, and the pesky-ever-present-'wintry mix' to bead right off the vest.

      He was looking for a lightweight, well-fitting, down vest to wear beneath his parka on walks and rides to and from work. He's rather trim, tall, and found Patagonia to fit too loosely in the waist for his liking.

      The Cerium LT Vest has suited him perfectly. The fit is true to size* (*to Arc'teryx sizing, which can be slimmer than TNF or Patagonia). He's been wearing this pretty much every day through the Polar Vortexes and mild (false alarm spring) days of Milwaukee's winter.

      Best Vest

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 152lbs

      Quality of this vest is outstanding! I rarely need more than a sweater and this down vest to get me through chilly evenings. I tend to get stuffy in full down jackets, so I consider vests the "perfect jacket". I've tried several and this is my favorite. I like that fact that it stuffs into an internal sac (included) instead of a pocket as pocket stuffing can get a little unnecessarily tight.
      Get it, you won't be dissatisfied.

      Arcteryx and Ben R @ BC to the rescue

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 180lbs

      Needed a new vest so went with a Patagonia Down Sweater vest in Large, which ended up being too big, exchanged for a Medium, which was just too tight in the chest. I just happen to be right in between on Patagonia sizing on that vest. Ben @ BC was super patient with me on this crazy back and forth. I finally decided to go with the Cerium LT since I have a Gamma MX and Arcteryx tends to have a trimmer fit. The Large in the Cerium ended up being a perfect fit for me at 6'/180lbs/41" chest. Super warm and comfortable. Looking forward to putting it through the paces over the CO winter.

      Great Vest from Great Company

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 6'1"
      • Weight: 180lbs

      I have few vests from other companies and this is my 2nd from Arcteryx. First one, fleece vest, my younger son took and loves it. So I am back at this one. Very light, very easy to pack, great for all kind of activities. I had waited for Arcteryx to get this one made and it was well worth the wait. I get constant compliments on it.

      Worth about $150

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

      Over the years I became accustomed to a distinct level of quality and 'feel' from Arcteryx gear. Even if I returned an item because it didn't quite fit my needs, I usually wanted to keep it. And the ones I kept felt special and ready for anything. It seems those days have passed along with the sight of "Made In Canada" on the Arcteryx tag. The last two Arc pieces I've bought have been thoroughly average in just about every regard. This vest, specifically, runs small, offers decent warmth and feels "ok". The color I bought was "Golden Palm". It looks great in the images but in person is a watered down yellowish mustard. There is nothing "Golden" about it. It appears Arc needs to study Edward Deming or Joe Juran to learn how to make money AND produce high quality goods. If you're going to produce it in China you should charge the China price, which in this case would mean about $150. But I honestly don't know if I would pay that much for it when compared to the $150 vest options.
