Pros Light, warm for its weight, convenient pocketsGreat fit, warm, lightweight, packable900+ fill down, warm, lightweight, incredibly compressible, competitively pricedVery warm, super light, packs small, fits fantasticVery warm, water resistant hydrophobic down, great DWR coating, well thought out features
Cons Bulky fitExpensive, 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 jackets750 fill-power down is good but not as light or lofty as others
Bottom Line The best down quality at an affordable price and one of the jackets we use the most often after testing ended.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.Our Top Pick for Wet Weather because it has all the features to ensure the down stays dry.
