Why We Like It

Hands down, this is my all-time favorite jacket. If the weather is below 45˚ – and unless it's pouring out – I will be wearing this jacket. It's comfortable, well-fitting, warm, and can be worn for just about any occasion. Rarely have I felt overheated while wearing this jacket, even while traveling though variable climates like airports. The best part? When the temperature rises, the jacket easily packs away into its included stuff sack. While you won't want to wear this jacket for extended time in the rain without a waterproof shell, if you get caught in a sudden downpour the strategically-placed synthetic insulation will help to keep you warm and prevent the down from degrading over time.

Tip: I prefer the LT (Lightweight) version of this jacket because I tend to layer. If you are someone that doesn't want to layer, or if you're looking for a little more warmth, check out the Cerium SV Jacket (SV for Severe Weather).
