The Fuego LT is the lighter, season-jumping sibling of our Fuego Down Jacket. We wanted to create a down layer that would be exceptionally lightweight (LT), breathable, and provide the right amount of insulation from fall through early summer. Now we have the perfect under-the-shell insulation piece, camping sweater, and hiking and traveling layer wrapped into one superlight, packable jacket. We achieved this by pairing responsibly sourced, water-resistant 950-fill goose down with Polartec® Alpha® Direct side panels. This blend, like the original Fuego, pulls double duty—locking in warmth where you need it and releasing excess heat where you don’t. The main difference is that the LT’s 950-fill down is lighter and more compressible, and the Polartec® Alpha® Direct is open on the interior, which is both lighter than the original Alpha® and promotes better breathability. We also eliminated the hood for further weight savings.
- 20D giant-ripstop nylon with DWR finish
- 950-fill responsibly sourced, water-resistant goose down
- 20D mini-ripstop nylon lining
- Polartec® Alpha® Direct underarm insulation
- Elastic binding at cuffs and hem
- Two interior stash pockets
- Unlined zippered hand pockets
Polartec® Alpha® is the latest evolution of synthetic insulation offering a rare combination of lightweight warmth and true breathability in a “puffy” style garment. Because Polartec® Alpha® insulation is highly durable and more stable than other synthetic insulation products, more open-construction woven face and back fabrics can be selected to create an air permeable package. This small amount of air rapidly draws moisture away from the body and allows Polartec® Alpha® to be worn in a wider range of activities compared to classic “vapor barrier” style insulation.
- Superior breathability
- Warmth without weight
- Fast drying
