    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 warmest option in the Cerium series, this jacket is a dependable midlayer in frigid conditions or a standalone jacket in cold, dry weather.

    The Cerium starts with down composite mapping, which strategically places down and synthetic insulation in key areas. A DWR coating is used on the lightweight Airetica face fabric to help repel light precipitation. Arc'teryx also added Coreloft synthetic insulation in the shoulders and cuffs for added water-resistance. And when conditions get really extreme, the down insulation is highly compressible so you can comfortably layer the Cerium SV under a technical shell. In fact, a stuff sack is included with the Cerium so it's not crowding up your pack when you're at lower, warmer elevations.

    A Furnace

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'5"
    • Weight: 195lbs

    My brother's had a Cerium SV for a couple years now and decided to get me one for Christmas. He's always referred to it as a sleeping bag and he's not far off - it's like wearing a furnace. Historically, I've stuck with the Atom LT & AR, and have been content with those jackets for winter layering. But, this is in a totally different league. No more having to wear a flannel/hoodie under my Atom AR. You only need a light shirt under this, or you'll be too hot. I'm really looking forward to using it more this winter and utilizing it on future adventures.

    Runs short

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    Love love love my women's version of this jacket so I bought the men's for my guy. He's a lean build at 6'1 and 175 lbs so I bought size Large. The jacket is beautiful and he was hoping to keep it but we are returning because it's very short in the front. The width was roomy enough on him for layering, which was fine for his use. The back was long enough but the front barely covered his belt and he kept wanting to pull it down which also made it look too short - bummer. Trying the Thorium SV next since the specs list it as a few inches longer.

    Performance and Sizing

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    This thing is crazy rad. I ALWAYS run a Medium in Arc' stuff, but got the Large here because I want to be able to throw it over top of everything if need be - if I try that it will be pretty restricting. If I hadn't bought a large it would be way too tight to fit even as a mid-layer, but the L is perfect. It easily fits under my Medium Arc' Beta SV shell. I'm stoked on it and it's proven to really be a warm piece, though I do worry a little about its lasting durability with the 10D face fabric, and the 7 D interior fabric. I am used to not having to baby Arc stuff, so we'll see about this. If you're on the fence with sizing or have broader shoulders within your sizing category I recommend going up to the next size. I have a 42 inch chest.

    Update: I'm actually pleased with its durability. I love having this thing in my pack - safeguard against any cold. It would be nice if the hood adjustments were outside the collar instead of inside though and if the hem adjustments didn't require two hands to work. Got caught in freezing rain for about 15 minutes with this as my only jacket once and it held its loft well. Only felt water through the inner elbows where the down tends to retreat. The down shift in the rear of the jacket more than I would expect. Every few days I'l give it a couple good shakes and things even back out.

    Inferno warm

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is the cerium on steroids. Ridiculously warm. You wouldn't want to wear this on cool days as you would start sweating. This is for the colder days like single digits and below. I use this as a mid layer when the mercury drops. I've worn this in -30 degree weather in the high country of Colorado and my core was well protected from the chill.
