Intro to the Arc'teryx Cerium LT Hoody Down Jacket
Plush and rugged don’t usually end up in the same sentence when describing a piece of backpacking gear — it’s one or the other. Yet the Arc’teryx Cerium LT Hoody manages to live up to both adjectives in the most extreme sense. The down jacket is a literal collection of the softest, smoothest, most carefully assembled coat of fine feathers you will ever drape about your body. It is also a literal juggernaut of resistance, strength, and super powered warmth.
Of course, the Arc’teryx Cerium LT Hoody also has all the basic requirements of a down jacket, like minimal weight, sturdy zippers, a high collar, a form-fitting hood, and down-stuffed hand warmers.
The delicate balance of all of these elements makes the Arc’teryx Cerium LT Hoody our Premium Pick for the Wilderness Backpacker, the Day Hiker, and the Car Camper. You’d be hard pressed to find a better down jacket for any of these backpacker types.
