It may be May, but there’s still the better part of two months left until summer officially begins. While we’re praying to the weather gods that it doesn’t take that long for consistently warm weather to arrive, we’re also clinging to our favorite shoulder season layers, like fleeces, sweaters and the like. We also find ourselves shopping around for new ones and have a contender for top find in Arc’teryx’s Cerium SL Vest, now nearly $60 off at Backcountry.
The vest version of the Cerium SL doesn’t get as much attention as its full-armed brethren, the Cerium SL Hooded Jacket (also on sale), but is arguably more versatile. It’s a down vest, yes, but a lightweight one (it weighs in at 4.2 ounces), stuffed with just the right amount of 850-fill insulation. It’s the ideal outer layer for the in-between seasons of spring and fall, and when we do make it to next winter — yes, we’ll get there eventually — it makes the perfect mid-layer to throw on beneath a waterproof shell.
