This is an excellent winter jacket. Lightweight and warm. Perfect fit. Enough room to layer underneath without being loose fitting. Ample pocket space. Works as a travel pillow when packed into it's stuff sack. Beyond satisfied yet again.
I'm 6'8 with long arms and this jacket in an XL-Long which fits me like a dream. I'm very happy with that aspect, and that is saying something since proper fit for me is a rare thing indeed. I'm all in on the fit.
This jacket is warm, we hit 31 degrees and I didn't even feel it. Admittedly, I was skeptical because I'm inexperienced in wearing Beyond’s cold weather gear. I'm now every impressed, even with no layering I'm at ease on a cold night out and about in this jacket.
I have the K-5 Modus, a stylish jacket with no big flaws and I love wearing it. The K-5 zippers are very well made and work perfectly. On the K-7 Cetra the zippers seem like a negligent afterthought that have never failed, to fail. In wearing a jacket, nothing matters more than being able to put that jacket on and zip it up without a battle. This applies to zipping or unzipping the pockets as well. I must wrestle with caught fabric every time. Having to stop and fix the zipper-caught fabric constantly seems like something that should have been engineered out in the design phase. Fixing this issue on a cold day with heavy gloves isn’t something I look forward to. I suppose I just won’t close them much. This is a big flaw in the K-7 Cetra. Honestly, I almost returned the jacket after my first try-on because the pocket zippers are useless if closing them without a struggle is the goal.
Additionally, all of the zippers on the K-7 are lightweight nylon and plastics and very flimsy. For the price I expected zippers as good as the Modus, or better. The bottom line on any nylon zippered jacket is “when the zipper dies, so does it.” I can’t help thinking they won’t last long but I hope I’m wrong.
The bottom drawstring is fine, it holds so no problems there, but the jacket has no waist area drawstring and that would be a bonus for holding in heat and keeping out wind.
I have no doubts the K-7 Cetra will keep me warm this winter, I just hope those zippers hold up.
I was referrred to Beyond by a friend who writes for Outside Magazine after giving him my specs and preferences/foilbles (one of which is that I’m admittedly a little “matchy-matchy…meaning I like to build layering systems within a brand).
My first purchase, based mostly on timing and holes in my current wardrobe, was a K7 Cetra. My first impression after putting it on was that it felt a little short compared to the jacket I was replacing it with. But now that I’ve used it a few times, I think it’s fine.
I like the build quality/fit/finish of the jacket and find it to be very warm for how relatively “un-puffy” it is. I did get a chance to take it out in some mixed precip and found that the DWR coating did its job. All in all, very happy with it so far and have already purchased a K3 Prima Lochi to add to my Beyond garment quiver. Gloves and a rain shell soon to follow.
I was a little concerned when a package containing both this and one of the K5 jackets showed up, as I was expecting something a lot bigger given the warmth rating, but they weren't joking about these jackets packing down small. Jacket is super high quality, and extremely warm. I started to overheat almost immediately while wearing it indoors. I am 5'11" 170-180 lbs, with around a 42" chest. Initially bought the medium, but felt like I was swimming in it. Given how warm the jacket is already, I wouldn't expect to need anything bulky underneath unless you expect it to get down well below freezing. I exchanged for the small size, and now the jacket was a little tight around my torso, but still huge around my arms. With something this lightweight and warm, I was looking for something a little more trim, so this didn't work for me. If your arms are extremely jacked, or you are going somewhere extremely cold and expect to have 2-3 layers under it, this jacket may be for you. In comparison the sizing on the K5 modus jacket was very trim on me in medium, and the K1 primus pullover was snug in large.
Comfortable, insulated, and water proof - this doubles as the outermost layer of an extreme cold weather system or a rain jacket for when the weather turns cooler in the fall.
