WHAT IS MONFUEGO?

Monfuego is a line of reversible ultra light down jackets built on a love for the great outdoors.  

2 JACKETS FOR THE PRICE OF 1 !

Tired of the unimaginative, we created a reversible ultra light down jacket. One side of the jacket has a solid color and the other presents a wide variety of patterns to suit customers every need. This means you are buying 2 jackets for the price 1! Pattern examples include deers, camouflage, retro geometric shapes and even mountains. In turn the designs present a sense of class and coolness to them making you look and feel in style as you take on the great outdoors. 

THE PATTERNS

Tired of the unimaginative, we created a reversible ultra light down jacket for both men and women. One side of the jacket has a solid color and the other presents a wide variety of patterns to suit customers every need. Pattern examples include deers, camouflage, retro geometric shapes and even mountains. In turn the designs present a sense of class and coolness to them making you look and feel in style as you take on the great outdoors.

WHAT IS SO GREAT ABOUT MONFUEGO?

When we think about great outdoor clothing brands, we look for four things: affordability, durability, comfort and style. The last of these often tend to be the hardest to find. For this reason we created Monfuego, making you look and feel in style as you take on the great outdoors.

We have also made a commitment to create positive social impact in this world, focusing our efforts on global poverty alleviation. Our adventure is just beginning. We hope you’ll join us!

THE DREAM

Our love for the great outdoors and passion for adventure means we were always on the lookout for the perfect lightweight jacket to shove into our backpacks. However, we could never find affordable brands that offered stylish, comfortable, warm, lightweight and high-quality jackets. As a result, we set out to create our own line of ultra-light down jackets. After much hard work we are excited to announce the launch of Monfuego: a lifestyle brand which combines style and adventure with a concern for global poverty alleviation around the world.

WHAT IS THE GOAL?

Our goal is to create jackets that enable a person to be immersed in the moment of doing regardless of external conditions while looking extremely fashionable. We help reduce the effects of weather so that you can create a timeless outdoor experience. 

SUSTAINABILITY

We believe that building products to last is the most powerful lever for minimizing our impact. We maximize performance and durability selecting proven materials that endure and wear well over time. 

We also encourage and inspire the members of our community to embrace exploration as it creates an indelible bond with the outdoors, inspiring us to protect our land and pass these beliefs down to the next generation. We only have one world so lets make sure we take care of it! 

GIVING BACK!

While some of us may be very lucky to go out and explore our beautiful planet, almost half the world — over three billion people — live on less than $2.50 a day.  This is why we have commited to create positive social impact focusing our efforts on global poverty alleviation donating 10% of all our profits. 

We select high-impact organizations that build sustainable solutions in collaboration with local communities. Active collaboration with nonprofit partners enables us to identify and target key needs. We do our research and invest in organizations that have demonstrated success and measure impact.

THE LIFESTYLE

Instead of trying to make your life perfect, give yourself the freedom to make it an adventure!

From climbing to hiking, rafting, cycling, horse riding, skiing, stargazing and so much more: these are just some of the phenomenal ways you can use your Monfuego for your next adventure.  We hope that you share your next adventure on our Instagram account (@monfuego) where users share their pictures from their adventures around the world.

WHAT'S IN THE NAME?

Monfuego was inspired during our travels in Tierra del Fuego, Argentina. “Mon” comes from the Spanish word for Mountain; “Montaña”, and “Fuego” is Spanish for Fire.  Tierra del Fuego, Spanish for "Land of Fire", is an archipelago off the southernmost tip of the South American mainland, across the Strait of Magellan. 

It was Ferdinand Magellan, the great sailor and explorer, who discovered these land in 1520 and named the region “Land of Fire,” after seeing volcanoes actively spewing flames and fires from the local Yaghan people who kept them lit to keep themselves warm. Tierra del Fuego is also where the Andes mountains emerge from a raging sea where the Atlantic Ocean clashes with the Pacific Ocean at Cape Horn. It is in these great lands where we came up with the idea for Monfuego; “The end of the world, The beginning of everything.”

QUALITY CONTROL

A brand is only as good as the quality of its products. For this reason we use premium materials, meticulous detail and unique construction processes enable us to create products that can be trusted to work in all conditions. 

WHY DESIGN MATTERS?

At Monfuego, design drives what we do. We are constantly asking ourselves what we can do it better. The end product is only as good as its parts, which is why we spend considerable time researching the materials and processes that go into the jackets we make. In other words, we are constantly obsessing over details because we know you do too. 

FABRIC

Lightweight and packable, yet durable and protective, these jackets are designed for versatility, durability, and comfort in variable conditions. They are so light and warm, you’ll have to wear them to believe it. 

Our jacket combine 800-fill-power Down with a superlight 15-denier 100% nylon shell.  They are constructed with durable water-resistant fabric to keep heat in, and weather out. A high fitted collar plus elastic cuffs help keep drafts out. Elastic band binding at the bottom hem seals out cold and wind. The sturdy nylon fabric keeps the down from escaping, and the chin-length zipper zips through the high collar to help your neck and face stay warm in cold weather. Monfuegos quilt-through design also reduces pack size allowing you to easily compact it into the included carrying pouch, so you can take it with you wherever you go. 

The combination of this unique technology makes our down jackets lightweight, soft, breathable and extremely comfortable! 

FIT

Risks and challenges

We feel confident to say that we are very capable of executing anything necessary to run a successful campaign, and most importantly, to deliver the product by the promised date.
We understand that there can always be unforeseen matters/delays when producing anything at high-volume. However, we are working with experienced and highly qualified manufacturers so the risks are very low. If anything does come up I believe in transparency and communication, so my backers will be the first to know.
