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.
In terms of fit, the LT features a trim midlayer cut. If you plan to wear it as a standalone jacket—with more than a baselayer underneath—we recommend sizing up one size. Rounding out the Fuego LT is an adjustable drawcord at the hem and an updated zipper for silky operation in all conditions.
