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. Need more proof? All five types of Arc’teryx Cerium jackets are on sale at Backcountry. On the high end, the super-warm SV Hooded Down Jacket is 40 percent off in two colors, meaning a bonkers $210 off. But every one is discounted at least 25 percent in some colors and sizes, meaning you’re guaranteed to save at least $85.
I have the non-hooded SL (super lightweight) jacket at the bottom of this page, and it’s still perfect for chilly mornings and evenings. There are even a couple vest versions on sale, too. Which means even when it’s not fall and winter, you’re getting much more than your money’s worth here.
