Lightweight puffy ready for any task.

Lightweight, highly-compressible, and a god-send on top of frigid ridgelines, the Stoic Luft Down Sweater offers stow-able insulation for the coldest temperatures. Stoic insulated this on-the-go oven with 750-fill goose down in the main body and included 100-gram Cirrus synthetic insulation in the Luft Down’s underarm panels to reduce moisture accumulation when you get the blood flowing. Close-fitting and layer-friendly, the Luft Down Sweater wants to tag along on your next climb, tour, or shoulder season-backpacking trip. If you're aiming to use the Luft Down as a layering piece go with a true-to-size fit, but if you're looking to layer over another jacket, you may want to consider sizing up.

Happy Down

I picked this jacket up as a layer under a shell for extreme conditions. That's really what I've used it for and it has done it's job very well. It's puffy enough to keep the wind out, but not so puffy to make you up your shell size by 3x. Kind of a happy medium. Sizing seems to be pretty much right on with what you'd normally wear. Definitely worth the dough, especially being as durable as this jackets appears to be.

Perfect. Just what I was looking for.

I absolutely love this jacket. I bought this jacked last December and it was my favorite jacket this season. It is extremely warm and extremely light. I described it to my friends as wearing really warm air. I love that its not too puffy like most down jackets out there. They make you look like the Michelin Man and this does not. I am 6'2" and 170 lbs and the Medium fits me perfectly. I got the black/tang and I love the color combination. The orange is a brighter orange so it doesn't look like I'm dressing up for Halloween. I also like how it compresses and is able to pack down really small. I get tons of compliments when I am out wearing this jacket. I like the quality of Stoics garments as well. They are still a smaller company so it seems they are still able to put some love into their equipment.

Pretty good, especially on huge discount

I was able to purchase this at such a low price i couldn't turn it down. In my opinion the collar could be 1/2 to a full 1 inch taller for that crucial warmth around the neck but no biggie. The sleeves have a lot less loft than anywhere else which I expected but even a little less than hoped. I have the similar synthetic version (medium) and it fit tight across the shoulders so i bought this one in a large. The fit across the shoulders is good but it is slightly puffy around the ribs. I'm a tall & thin- 6'2" 165lbs... shoulders are a little broader than normal. So there's all the negatives i can think of. It packs down small enough for me. Unfortunately, it's summer and i've only done one higher alpine hike. So i've only brought it out once (though it remained in my pack), but i can't wait to see how warm it really is given the weight and size

great jacket

I got this at a discount and have used it over the past winter season. Great jacket. Not your usual jacket because the body is down and the arms is synthetic insulation. I would usually where this to the ski resort as my warm jacket. I did not use it while skiing or any other high out put activity. I did take it on a casual snow shoe hike, and it kept me plenty warm with other layers. I would recommend this piece to anyone looking for a winter coat.

Damn nice middle layer/occasional outer layer for the price

Got mine in red off of SAC as well for ~$60 IIRC as a mid layer for my shell and occasional outer layer use when I'm feeling slightly puffy and it's pretty darn nice for the price.

The cut and fit work great for me (6'2", 195-200 lbs w/ wide shoulders and relatively long in the torso and arms and ordered an XL) and it looks great too. Gives that nice old school puffy look and feel w/o the over inflated Michelin Man effect of many down jackets I've tried on.

Seems to regulate really well, plenty warm for casual use by itself w/ just a t shirt underneath in windy 20F temps but not stifling or clammy when worn in the lodge w/ UA cold gear mock and a tech tee under it still zipped up.

The wrist gaiters and drawstring waist are really nice touches and much appreciated. It comes w/ a truly impressive array of pretty sturdy feeling and generously sized pockets as well.

The outer material does seem like it maybe a bit delicate for continued outer user in glades or anywhere you stand a high chance of snagging it frequently, haven't had any issues myself of yet but then again I haven't really put it to much testing. Light to moderate rain and snow seems to bead up relatively well, but I have a feeling heavy downpours or dumps would soak through pretty quickly without frequent copious application of WR treatment and leave me w/ a heavy wet dog feeling and smell.

Overall a pretty kickass bargain if you get it from SAC and not too shabby a value off of either.

I hate to take it off.

This jacket is really light and comfortable. I am 6', 190 lbs with an athletic build and a large fits me perfect. I have worn the jacket in 5 degree F weather with a merino base and a light fleece and in 25 degree weather with a merino base and have been very comfortable. I wrestled with my two labs in the snow last week while wearing the jacket. Paws were flying everywhere as Bailey and Tucker trampled me. I heard paw/claw sounds on my jacket, but it had no damage. Good Dogs. When not getting roughed up by man's best friend, I get lots of complements from the ladies on my bright yellow jacket. I own several Stoic brand items and love them all. Cheers, John

My fiancee's jacket saved the day in all that snow! I was turning purple with cold until I put it on, it warmed me right up and kept me toasty for hours out in the single digits :D

Stoic Luft Down

I got this jacket on SAC, and I couldn't be happier considering it was so discounted. I would have paid more for it though--maybe not 180, but certainly 120 or so.

I've got a small yellow. The size is great for me, not too snug and a perfect length on arms and torso (I'm about 5'7", 140ish). And the yellow is a great color, nothing too highlighter.

As for warmth, I've been able to wear this guy on its own in 20 or so degree weather, as long as I'm walking/moving. It also layers great under my Stoic Monolith, also a small, which together are good warmth and wind resistance. I've seen a few feathers fall out in the last week or so, but nothing to worry about.

Does it come with the stuff sack?

All good... but..

Bought this on SAC, great value and enjoy the jacket a lot. I wore it last weekend in Vail (temps in the teens to low 20's, 10"-20" of new snow each day, mild wind), each day I wore a short t-shirt and long t-shirt (two layers) and the jacket... and each day, I was more than warm with only a few seconds of shivers on certain lifts/parts of the day.... amazed that it kept me so warm.
The jacket is EXTREMELY LIGHT... again, amazing how warm it keeps you.

My only gripe is the durability of the material... it doesn't look like it'd stand up to much, and sure enough, I went in the trees and got a 2" rip on my left arm upon my first true encounter with a branch.

All and all, great jacket, but be careful!

stoic goes appalachian

nice fit and color combinations on the luft down sweaters. the extended wrist bands keep the warmth in and the drafts and snow out. not the same household brand as the patagonias, mountain hardwares, etc, but good price and quality.

Great Jacket

Got this jacket for Christmas it has surpassed all my expectations. I wore it recently skiing during a day where high's temps were in the negative it preformed great as an insulating layer under my shell. It also works great as a warm jacket to wear around town. Great jacket overall.

Pretty Happy!

This jacket is pretty warm. I have been using it with the Stoic bombshell jacket as well as alone. It is pretty wind resisted. It easy really easy to pack on those winter hikes for those times when I'm resting.

Works great as a jacket

I live in southern Japan where overnight/early morning winter temps are usually around freezing point. I am able to wear this thing comfortably with only a T-shirt underneath. I have yet to wear this in an "extreme" environment, but that's not really why I bought it.

I am a slender 6'4" 190 lbs and it fits pretty well. I have a difficult time buying any clothes that fit well, so I can't fault this thing for not fitting me like a bespoke jacket. The sleeve length is adequate for me as is the length of the jacket. The shoulders are fine, but the mid-section is a little bigger than I would like, but not much of a big deal.

This thing looks great as a jacket. I got the black with orange zippers and together with the Stoic logos, I really like it. The elastic cuffs are great. Nice and soft and just firm enough to keep the sleeves from riding up. The pockets are fairly roomy and are made so that things like car keys, coins, or cell phones will not easily fall out if the pockets are not zipped.

The jacket is very lightweight and feels like it can be packed down very compactly. In the dry winter air, it is very susceptible to static charge and will collect long hair and stuff like that. When I unpacked the jacket, it was very wrinkled, but a quick pass over it with a steamer had it looking good and it has not become very wrinkled since.

The deciding factor for me to buy this over the Patagonia is that it is a little less expensive and I got it at a really good sale price. For it's use as a jacket, it has met or exceeded my expectations and gets 5 stars from me.



Another angle of the medium crammed into my down bag's stuff sack next to a Nalgene. It required very little effort to get it packed down this small and I think that if I tried hard enough, then I could get it into the Nalgene bottle. However, recent studies suggest that down feathers don't keep you hydrated quite as well as water.



Size Medium crammed into my down bag's stuff sack next to a Nalgene bottle for comparison. It didn't take much effort to get it down this small so I'm confident that it could stuff down a little more but I didn't want to force it and wind up popping a stitch. I've already ripped plenty of stitches in the seat of my pants after chili night at the local watering hole. Another photo from a different angle is also uploaded.

What's the jacket length like? I'm 6'7",...

What's the jacket length like? I'm 6'7", so I'd need something fairly long, but that doesn't get too bulky in the larger sizes.

Responded on

I'm 6'4" 190lbs and the XL fits me pretty well. It is long enough to cover the pockets on my jeans and the sleeves are also of a good length. It's a little bigger than I would like it to be in the mid-section, but then again, everything seems to be, too. I considered sending it back for the L size to make it more snug around the body, but I didn't think the trade-off in reduced length would be worth it. I cinched it up with the elastic strap at the bottom and it seems to help.

Love, love, love this "sweater"

A medium fits me perfectly. I'm 6'2", 215, and usually get a medium tall in shirts. I get shirts with 36/37" sleeves and the sleeves on the jacket fit perfect. I've worn it just about every day for 2 months and it looks like it just came out of the box.

It's warm enough that I am fine with just a t-shirt on underneath in anything down to single digits. I wore it under a Norrona shell and went snowboarding when it was -10F, about -25F with the windchill. Hands, face and feet froze, but my core was nice and toasty all day.
