Arc'teryx Cerium LT 2018 - 2017 Review by A Better Ski

Arcteryx nailed it with the Cerium LT Hoody, a perfect mid layer thats stout enough for backcountry missions but fitted well enough for Whole Foods.  Bound to be your favorite jacket in no time, the Cerium LT will have you looking forward to the coldest of days!


Arc’Teryx Cerium LT Hoody Review and Video

Tester: Chris

Size: L

Chris’ Specs: Sizing Info

Waterproofing and Breathability: Arcteryx adds Coreloft to areas of the jacket that are going to get wet, across the shoulders, chest, arms, pits and in front of the mouth.  A DWR finish and ripstop fabric make this jacket a good option for bitterly cold days as a mid layer or outer layer in dryer climates (we love down in Utah).

Warmth: High quality 850 fill down keeps this jacket low weight and packable but extremely warm,  I also feel like the fit helps keep your warmth close to the body.  I would wear this jacket anywhere from -5 to 30 degrees.

Fit: Arcteryx has the athletic fit on lock! Which along with its well thought out design and high quality materials has earned a “favorite”.  Fitting true to size, with broad shoulders, long arms and a slender body, it may not be flattering on everyone, but I love it.

Features: Packable mid layer is the key here, even the zipper is low mass to keep weight and size down.  No matter how warm the day,  I always take a down into the mountains, weather changes quickly and it can save your life.

Bottom Line: This is a well thought out, high quality, and perfectly fitting mid-layer.  It earns its price tag!

Thanks jans-new

Arc'teryx Cerium LT Past Reviews

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

Tester: Matt

Size: M

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
