Cotopaxi Fuego LT Down jacket
Save 50%: It might seem imprudent, foolhardy or even irresponsible to buy a down jacket when we’re a mere month away from the summer solstice — your cash is better spent on a bathing suit or a new hiking pack, right? Most will agree here, and both brands and retailers respond with discounts to move their insulating layers off the shelves. Cotopaxi is doing just that; it’s lightweight Fuego Down Jacket is currently 50 percent off, along with other items like windbreakers and fleeces.
Cotopaxi made the jacket with premium 950-fill water-resistant down that provides excellent warmth but is still slim and packable. The designers also included a touch of Polartec’s breathable synthetic Alpha insulation underneath the arms, and it has two interior and two exterior pockets. As far as down jackets go its regular price of $230 makes it notably affordable, but at $115, it’s the cheapest you’re likely to see a coat of this quality. For those with an adequate balance of foresight and patience, this deal is one not to miss. Plus, there are plenty of uses for down jackets in the summer too: hikes to higher elevations, chilly mornings and evenings and trips to the Southern Hemisphere are just a few. — Tanner Bowden
