For months now, we’ve been stressing that the best time to score cold-weather gear, particularly awesome down jackets, is when it’s not cold out. However, every once in a while a sweet sale pops up at the perfect time: right before you need the item.
That is the case right now with Arc'teryx's Cerium LT Hooded Down Jacket, which is currently 25 percent (almost $100) off in a range of colors and sizes at Backcountry. This cozy garment boasts 850-fill goose down, zippered hand pockets plus an internal chest pocket, a moisture-repelling DWR treatment and an adjustable, insulated StormHood.
It also packs down to a size (and shape) not much bigger than Chipotle burrito, thanks to the included stash pocket. It's easy to stuff in a pack and bust out when you need it, making for the perfect travel or backcountry skiing piece. Right now 10 colors are on sale, with size availability varying, depending on the hue.
