This down jacket is incredibly versatile, as it can be worn under a hardshell jacket in adverse conditions or as a lightweight, yet tough hooded jacket is nice weather. Meet the Women's Cerium LT Hoody from Arcteryx. Its specific functional properties are obtained by way of the combination of different materials: The outer fabric has been treated with a DWR for water repellency and is breathable and windproof as well. The insulation material used for the Cerium LT Hoody is a combination of three different materials: The main body and the upper arms are filled with high-quality and high fill power goose down and Coreloft synthetic insulation strategically placed in moisture-prone areas, such as the hood, shoulders, armpits and cuffs. The synthetic material is robust, stays dry longer and wont clump up in wet conditions. Plus, it retains its insulating properties when damp. It also happens to dry more quickly than down.
The Womens Cerium LT Hoody is an excellent hooded jacket with a great warmth-to-weight ratio. It is incredibly lightweight and has a small pack size, making the jacket perfect for alpine projects of all kinds. You can wear it under a hardshell or on its own. Of course, it has a women-specific fit and is a bit longer. An excellent jacket with all sorts of practical features!
