Cerium LT Hooded Down Jacket

Layer the Arc'teryx Cerium LT Hooded Down Jacket under your shell when you head out for a backcountry tour on a crisp, cold morning, or use it as an outer layer for chilly fall hikes. The combination of 850-fill goose down and strategically-placed Coreloft insulation keeps you warm during bone-chilling days in the backcountry. Plus, this superlight hooded jacket comes with its own stuff sack so you can easily bring it along on your next ski tour.

  • Light, durable, and toasty midlayer for cool backcountry conditions
  • 850-fill goose down is light and compressible
  • Coreloft insulation for areas prone to overheating
  • Lightweight Arato shell with DWR treatment repels moisture
  • Adjustable, insulated StormHood protects head from wind and cold
  • Jacket stuffs into pocket for easy packing
  • Slim fit makes it easy to throw on under a shell

Exactly what I hoped for

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

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.

Awkward Sizing

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: L

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.

Poor zips

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

Definitely a warm light jacket, but zips are terrible! Spoilt it.

Great winter jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: L

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.

Great Jacket

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

This jacket is so warm and light weight by far the best down jacket I've had!

Awesome Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: M

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.

Warm and light

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

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.

Very warm jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Xl

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.

Looking for second color

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

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.

Great Jacket

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Gave this as a gift and feedback was that it is
very light weight and super warm.
Would buy again

High quality - fits tight

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Large

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.

Disappointed

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

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.

Great Warm Winter Jacket

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

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.

Sheds Feather Everywhere

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: S

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.

warm... but

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

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.

warm... but

Nice Fit. Typical Arcteryx quality

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

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!
