Flight Lite: Down for higher

It’s that time of the year again in the Northern hemisphere — precipitation is falling, cold winds are blowing, and the mornings and nights are brisk. You know what this means, it’s time to pull out that old down jacket you’ve had for the last few seasons — or, invest in a new one. If you’re in the market for a coat that will keep you warm this winter, look no further.

The Red Fox Flight Lite down jacket is a take on the classic puffy, but there are a few things that set it apart from your run-of-the-mill alternative.

The Red Fox Flight Lite down jacket is the perfect add on layer during breaks when you need to hold onto the precious heat you’ve been generating and the elements want to rob you of.

Among the most notable qualities of the Flight Lite is its versatile nature. This is the perfect jacket for your everyday urban exploration — your daily grind, the work commute, walking the dog — this jacket will keep you warm and comfortable through it all.

If you’re staring up a slick granite wall, holding a belay rope in your gloved hands, this jacket is perfect as a final outer layer to add during breaks between sweat bathed climbs. It has a shorter cut so that it is compatible with a climbing harness and the elastic cuffs keep the breeze out. Its hood is also helmet compatible, so you can easily don it when it’s your turn to belay. The reinforced shoulders and sleeves give you some extra protection against the sharp rock.

This jacket is also a great mid-layer on a chairlift. It’s puffy, but it’s not so bulky that it makes your outer shell uncomfortably tight. Or imagine you’re on a snow covered trail, heading for the alpine zone and an extra dose of frigid wind. While you’re moving your Merino base layers and insulating fleece keep you warm beneath a Vinson jacket. But when you stop, the Flight Lite comes out to preserve your hard won body heat.

Not all down jackets are created equal.

The Flight Lite is made with 100% goose down (now who can argue that those birds gotta stay warm?), with 700+F.P. and a baffled, quilted design that is thick, yet packs down small. It’s got enough pockets to stash all the stuff you need fast access to: — gloves, phone, snacks, earbuds stashed in the inner cargo pockets, an inner chest pocket, outer hand pockets, and an easy-to-access outer chest pocket. If you’re more into the sleeveless look, we’ve got you partially covered (pun intended)! The Flight Lite also comes as a vest, to keep your core covered and your arms available.

With this jacket, you’ve got it all: that hardcore layer that will keep you comfortable in the most extreme of climates; that easy-to-pack jacket that scrunches down small or is always hanging by the door, ready for the next cold spell; that warm coat that will be sure to have your friends shivering with envy!
