Streamlined, lightweight down hoody filled with 850 white goose down. This backcountry specialist hoody is intended as a mid layer or standalone piece in cool, dry conditions.
Putting Down Where it Counts
Strategic placement of synthetic and down insulation has Coreloft synthetic insulation, that retains warmth when wet, placed along the shoulders, collar, sleeves and underarms - areas prone to contact with moisture. 850 fill European Goose down lines the core and sleeves where warmth is most needed.
Sealing the World Out
Both the adjustable low profile down insulated StormHood and adjustable hem drawcord make sure the drafts stay outside, so you can do the same. DWR finish repels moisture so don't be afraid of being caught in light precipitation
Streamlined and lightweight, the Cerium LT down hoody is filled with 850 white goose down, intended to act as a mid-layer under a shell, or a standalone piece for cold, dry conditions. A three part sleeve moves freely and keeps a low profile.
Specialized construction: light, elasticized hem; three part sleeve; binding finishes and superior craftsmanship are the thoughtful attention to detail that allows the use of stronger fabrics that can stand up to everyday use. This is a piece you will want to live in.

Top Customer Reviews
Very warm (worn down to sub-20 degrees with 20-30 mph gusts with a base and thin mid-layer)
SUPER light and compressible (Size L is ~10 oz and stuffs down to the size of a small water bottle in the included stuff sack)
DWR coating does exactly what it's supposed to do after a few freak snow flurries the other day
High-moisture areas are filled with synthetic, so those area will not lose warmth due to wet down
Cuffs are elastic and provide a great seal against the cold, either over gloves or on bare skin
Enough room to layer, but cut slim enough to fit snugly with just a base layer
Best hood I have ever used. Really nicely insulated and big enough to accommodate earmuffs or another hat (but not a ski/snowboard helmet)
Company has a great reputation and track record of making excellent products (check out other reviews on Backpacker, OutdoorGearLab, SectionHiker, etc for more info)
I've had to massage a few bits of down back into the jacket already. Not a huge problem since all down jackets will shed a bit, but unfortunate.
Although the jacket seems durable, I'd be worried about bushwhacking with this jacket UNLESS you plan on using as a mid layer under a waterproof shell for fear that an errant tree branch rips it
Zippers feel a bit cheap, although they have not failed me once
The cons are mostly nitpicks more than objectively "bad" things. The price is astronomical (even at the mild discount I got it at), which is par for the course for Arc'teryx. You can acquire a comparable hooded down jacket from Patagonia for nearly $100 less, and for another $20 or so below that can acquire a mostly-comparable one from North Face. The jacket doesn't have an interior security pocket (which I use for my phone, but it'd be nice to have).
Finally, Arc'teryx seems to run small. I typically wear a men's large, but a large from Arc'teryx was just slightly too snug on me. I had to go for an XL to have some comfort, and to be honest I'd feel slightly confined if I wore anything other than the lightest, thinnest base layer beneath this jacket (which is designed to be a mid-layer). I understand an appeal to athletic body styles, but it still seems like running small on menswear is questionable: dudes are just bulkier than women. With North Face, and Patagonia from about 2-3 seasons ago (before they went to slimmer fitting), I could comfortably fit in a women's XL if I needed to (and sometimes their styles are more appealing than the often blocky appearance of a lot of men's outerwear). But Arc'teryx? There's no conceivable way a women's XL would fit me.
Because of that, it looks super dirty and not clean, even if it is brand new. I wrote to Arc'teryx customer support today about that to get it exchanged. This is not normal to get something like that from a High-End company such as Arc'teryx.
update: no draw strings for the waist area.. thought all coats have that these days.. bit weird
