Are Puffer Jackets Warm?

What is a Puffer?

Puffer jackets are insulated jackets that come in many unique designs, level of warmth, and style. Puffers are typically bought for style and are an ideal travel option.

Let’s find out a bit more about them and which is right for you!

How do Puffers Work?

Puffer jackets were first made in the 1930s, following a freezing fishing trip. Using goose feathers and criss-cross stitching, the first puffer jacket was made.

Two layers of fabric are sewn together with insulating “fluff” between them. Often these layers are waterproof materials that trap air that holds your warmth without being too bulky.

The “fluff” within puffer jackets can be feathers or non-animal materials like polyester or other recycled fibres for a more sustainable, ethical alternative.

To be short, a puffer jacket acts like a Thermos around your body.
