The season we've all been waiting for.... the first line of Arc'teryx down jackets. I didn't think it was possible, but I'm looking forward to the Arc'teryx clinic more than ever before. The Arcteryx Men's Cerium LT Hoody utilizes a mixture of strategically mapped 850 fill down and Coreloft™ synthetic insulation. The synthetic insulation is placed in areas that are prone to moisture (hem, collar, sleeves and underarms), and the down is stuffed everywhere else to keep your core warm while allowing the Cerium LT to be light and compressible. If you need a little extra warmth or protection just put on the hood to keep that noggin of yours warm. With this insulating mid-layer, it's like you're wearing years and years of research and progress.

Bought this jacket after trying on my buddy's jacket a few weeks back. I really like the fit (XL). I like the length of the jacket, covers my rear well. I have had a couple people ask where they could get a similar coat, so i guess it looks great on me. Bought the jacket for down hill skiing and wearing around town. This jacket proved to excel at both of those! Would buy again. Looking at Arcteryx gloves as a next purchase from Moosejaw. This was my first ever Arcteryx purchase, very happy that I bought this jacket.
"Great quality and warmth, ALMOST a perfect fit"
I'm 5'8", 160 lbs. The True Fit guide on Arcteryx's website said size medium would be an 'excellent fit' so I ordered that. The jacket fits very well through the chest, torso, and waist, but the sleeves feel a little more snug than I would prefer. The fit is definitely designed for someone with an athletic build, but not particularly muscular. I tried on a large and it was way too big everywhere. As far as warmth, I was very comfortable wearing just a t shirt under the jacket in 25F weather. The zipper seems a bit delicate, but other than that the jacket seems durable.
Just like your favorite down sleeping bag this packs down to nothing. It is really really light weight, like your not even wearing a jacket. Fabric is thin, well made, but will rip if it gets into some nasty bush. Arc's warranty service is 2nd to none and a repair is very cheap. Well suited for environments where high wind is not a factor or should be layered under a shell. Under a shell it can be sub-,zero out and your toasty.
"Super comfortable, warm, and very light."
For how light this jacket is, I am amazed at how warm it is. I have heavier jackets that aren't nearly as warm. The cuffs at the end of the sleeves keep the heat insulated and the hood works way better than your normal jacket. This is the Ferrari of jackets. I love it. I love the color but am thinking about getting a different one.
"Athletic cut for perfect fit and exceptional features"
I had high expectations for this hoody, and it delivered more than expected. The hood fits and functions perfectly, with a fit that can be dialed via the draw cord. The hoody functions perfectly as an outer layer in moderate conditions or as a mid-layer in colder conditions. Where this hoody really shines is the fit though--- Arcteryx may cost, but you are paying for a perfectly cut garment. I'm 5'8" and 150 lbs. Ordered a small which fits like a glove. I can layer underneath the hoody and still have full-range of motion, or I can wear a minimal layer underneath and still count on a perfect fit. Perfect technical piece and very well suited to mountaineering and climbing. Highly satisfied !
I bought this jacket to refresh my down options, and boy am I glad that I did! It's light as a feather, offers great warmth, and fits perfect. I'm 6'4" 220 pounds and the XL fits fantastic. The jacket also looks stunning. I definitely won't mind wearing it out and about. It's hard to believe that it's filled with 850 goose down because it is so thin. I also own a North Face Nuptse down jacket, and it's so puffy I look like the Michelin Man. The Cerium LT though, PERFECT! I think I am going to thoroughly enjoy having this jacket in my arsenal. Great job Arc'teryx!
