The Arc’Teryx Cerium LT Hoody is a lightweight down jacket that is designed to be used primarily as an insulating mid-layer. You could also use it as standalone piece on cold and dry days, but it’s only water-resistant and won’t provide great wet weather protection.
Arc’Teryx Cerium LT Hoody Review
Matt’s Specs: Sizing Info
Waterproofing and Breathability: The Arc’Teryx Cerium LT Hoody has a water-resistant DWR finish, but won’t be great in wet weather. It is much more suited to dry days, and would be okay if you see some light snow. The jacket is breathable, but with all the heavy insulation, it’s not going to breathe extremely well.
Warmth: The Arc’Teryx Cerium LT Hoody has a mix of 80g Coreloft and 850 fill goose down. The synthetic Coreloft will insulate when wet, and is placed in areas that may get wet first. Down is then used in the rest of the jacket and provides some pretty serious warmth. Placed under a technical shell, the Cerium LT Hoody could provide some fantastic protection from the elements.
Fit: The Arc’Teryx Cerium LT Hoody fits true to size, but does feel slightly puffy because of all the insulation. Still, it’s actually pretty streamlined, and doesn’t feel overly bulky. It fits perfectly fine under you’re standard size technical shell.
Features: The Arc’Teryx Cerium LT Hoody is an insulating mid-layer with a streamlined minimalist approach. It has a contoured hood and two hand warming pockets for when you’re using the Cerium LT Hoody as a stand-alone piece.
Bottom Line: The Arc’Teryx Cerium LT Hoody is a light-weight, streamlined, and warm insulating jacket that is designed more for use as a mid-layer. It could be used on its own as a warm around town jacket on dry days.
