One to keep on you at all times: the Arcteryx Cerium LT Vest!
The lightweight down vest impresses with an outstanding weight-to-insulation ratio! The body warmer can be kept in your backpack in its own stuff sack and thrown on when taking a moment to rest on your tour or when it cools down at night. The lightweight vest can also be used to keep you warm in everyday life and you‘ll barely even notice that you‘re wearing it. The down vest is also visually appealing and can be well combined with a hoodie or sweater!
The Canadian company makes use of European down of the highest quality, sewn into baffles. This minimizes weight and the formation of cold bridges at the same time. The two hand pockets help warm up cold hands and the elasticated hems and the short, tight-fitting collar make the down vest ideal as a warm midlayer for really cold weather.
The exterior fabric of the Cerium LT Vest is very light, yet still abrasion-resistant, windproof and water repellent treatment thanks to a DWR coating. Arc‘teryx swears by so-called Down Composite Mapping and, instead of down, uses Coreloft synthetic insulation under the arms and on the shoulders. This type of insulation is more resistant to moisture and pressure, which makes sense in these areas when carrying a backpack or if it should get a little hotter (down clumps together when exposed to sweat).
As is typical of Arcteryx, the Cerium LT Vest is a combination of urban, understated and casual with impressive versatility across the board!
