Gear for Good: Cotopaxi’s Fuego Hooded Down Jacket

The Fuego is Cotopaxi’s quintessential down insulation layer. It’s made with responsibly sourced, water-resistant 800-fill goose down, making it the jacket you’ll take everywhere from fall through spring. And it packs down small, so you can also take it on summer trips as an emergency layer.

This versatility comes courtesy of the Fuego’s updated, streamlined fit, toasty down insulation, and DWR-finished ripstop nylon shell. Cotopaxi has also added a built-in scuba hood and elastic binding throughout, further sealing out the cold, and the assortment of stash pockets throughout provide space for all your essentials. Rounding out this lightweight down jacket is an adjustable drawcord at the hem and an updated zipper for silky operation in all conditions.

As with everything Cotopaxi, this is more than a jacket. Beyond sheer quality, Cotopaxi offers even bigger benefits that empower consumers to do good with their purchases.

The Fuego: A Responsibly Sourced Down Jacket

The Fuego is made using RDS-Certified down, which means it adheres to the Responsible Down Standard. This standard aims to ensure that down and feathers come from animals that have been treated ethically. And in addition to RDS-certified down, Cotopaxi produces the Fuego at a facility in northeastern China where worker well-being is a top priority. Learn more about this factory.
