Pros Very warm, water resistant hydrophobic down, great DWR coating, well thought out featuresGreat fit, warm, lightweight, packable900+ fill down, warm, lightweight, incredibly compressible, competitively pricedVery warm, super light, packs small, fits fantasticIncredibly light, compact, warm for its size and weight, effective hydrophobic down
Cons 750 fill-power down is good but not as light or lofty as othersExpensive, more difficult to fit in its stowaway pocket than other modelsHood a little tight to fit over a helmetExpensive, draw cord performance not as great as other jacketsNo hood cinch, some slightly heavier jackets are much warmer, waist cinch leaves cord hanging below the waist
Bottom Line Our Top Pick for Wet Weather because it has all the features to ensure the down stays dry.This is our favorite jacket for when we need to be fast, light, and warm.A great choice for folks looking to go fast, light, and warm.A great warmth to weight ratio and excellent features make the Cerium a solid choice.A surprisingly warm jacket that is super-light and thin, providing excellent versatility for technical adventures.
