Arc'teryx Women's Cerium LT Hoody
Must-have down jacket
Well, this must have been the best last-minute purchase of all time. Looking at the weather charts for the Dolomites just before going there on a skiing holiday just a couple of weeks ago made me realise that my usual skiing combination, including an Arc'teryx waterproof jacket, would not be warm enough. I am so glad I read other reviews and made the trip to Covent Garden. I realised very quickly that the -15o temperatures would need some serious attention and the Cerium was the perfect answer. Light, good fit and very warm. And rolls up into its own small, neat sack. On a slightly warmer day, I simply opened the vents on my waterproof jacket and stayed the perfect temperature.

Highly recommend it for someone looking for a warm light jacket, that can be used on the slopes (as a layer) or even in the city in the winter
Great fit too!

Wearing this all winter!
I love this jacket, it's lightweight but so warm and really waterproof. Only downside is the hood when up looks a bit nerdy.

Excellent stand-alone or layering piece
This has become my new go-to warmth and layering piece. It's warm, lightweight, comfortable, non restrictive, fits well and it looks good to boot, what's not to love? Except the price, but Arc'teryx gear is never cheap. I found the size came up ever so slightly small, I'm usually an 8 but went up one size as I wanted to be able to layer up underneath. The versatility is excellent - I wear it on its own on cold days but it also layers perfectly under my Mountain Equipment hardshell to keep me warm and dry in any conditions. I took both jackets to Patagonia this year for some serious hiking and climbing and they were the ideal combination.

I love this jacket
I didn't think I could be quite so impressed by a functional jacket - but I'm completely won over by this jacket. It's feather-light (literally), fits perfectly, is comfortable and has kept me incredibly snug and warm on a recent trip to Northern Germany. It's also beautiful. The only downside is the pricetag, which is high. But I can't say I've regretted it for a moment.

Portable, comfortable, warm & light!
I treated myself to this while on Snow & Rock's sale page. I love easy to pack clothes / jackets, and the reviews of this one were excellent. It was also half price at the time. It fits beautifully, is so warm but light, and rolls up into a small sausage for packing. It will be with me constantly now in the car.

A good looking, functional must-have
This jacket is an investment, but it is absolutely worth the money. I bought it for travelling, because it takes up no space, but keeps you warm, looks great and may even function as a pillow on bus rides. I wear it every day and am really happy that I bought it. I highly recommend it.
