Arcteryx Ceres SV Parka Black

Season : AW18

Brand : Arcteryx

Code : 18017-BLK-

Weight : 0KG

Arc'teryx Ceres SV Parka 

A massive name in the outdoor community for creating high quality garments for all kinds of alfresco persuits, Arcteryx were founded 1989 and now have over 25 years experience in the field. From Vancouver, British Columbia, their clothing is designed and created by applying an eye to detail, from sourcing the finest materials possible to incorporating the latest in outdoor technology. Their winter jackets are always a perfect range for all kinds of activity, and this jacket, the Thorium AR, is created for both incredible warmth and fashionable design.

This jacket is a proper technical winter piece designed to deliver extreme warmth, even in the harshest conditions when you're stood still. In a meeting with our guy at Arc'teryx, he referred to it as the 'Aberdeen away' jacket. To be fair, that's a pretty mint way of putting it. 

The shell of this jacket is made from N40p GORE WINDSTOPPER® which is weather-resistant, lightweight and breathable, and as the name would suggest, completely windproof. The lining is made from Arato™ 30 (100% nylon) which is a breathable, soft and smooth ripstop fabric.

It has a full-zip front with a snap button at the bottom to secure an internal stormflap, an insulated helmet compatible StormHood™ with Cohaesive™ hood adjustments for ease of use with mittens or gloves. It has two elasticated drawcords to the waist and hem and elasticated cuffs for a secure fit. The silhouette has two zippered handwarmer pockets and a zippered chest pocket and on the inside it has two mesh pouches. 

The insulation is what brings this jacket into a league of its own. It uses 850-fill-power of European grey goose down for lightweight heat performance, which is paired with Coreloft™ synthetic insulation in areas vunerable to moisture using Arc'teryx's Down Composite Mapping strategy.

The jacket's branding is simple yet effective with reflective printing featuring a logo to the chest and GORE® branding to the cuff. A winter favourite for us. Bring on the footy. 

This parka comes in a regular fit - I usually wear a medium, and in this it leaves enough room for a tee and sweatshirt underneath. 

  • Regular fit 
  • 100% nylon Arato™ 30 lining
  • 850-fill-power goose down
  • Coreloft™ synthetic insulation 
  • Down Composite Mapping filling
  • Zippered handwarmer pockets

  • Zippered chest pocket

Slim Fit: Slim fitting, sitting close to the body, great for showing of your guns and pecks.

Regular Fit: Neither slim nor oversized. Regular-fitting garments that are bang in the middle. The middle is good.

Relaxed Fit: Drapes loosely on the body, baggy fit.


Run the tape around the fullest part of your chest, the tape should be just below the arm pit and over the shoulder blades whilst horizontal to the floor.


Measure around your natural waist as show in the diagram


Measure your inside leg from crotch to ankle blone keeping your leg straight: not as easy as it sounds, you could take a pair of trousers that you already own, that fit you well, and measure from the crotch to the bottom of the leg.


This is a bit more tricky! Measure from the top of your spine (at the bottom of your neck) to your elbow and on the your wrist


You should place the beginning of the measuring tape behind your shoulder, and feed it out following your arm making sure to pass both the elbow joint and the wrist, as pictured. You should take the measurement at the point where you would like the sleeve to end. This is usually just past your wrist.

With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.
