Let's discuss this winter essential....the puffer coat. The puffer jacket’s trademark is its sectioned or quilted design. It's exterior is comprised of a number of puffy sections that are separated by seams and are filled with down or a synthetic material that is intended to provide warmth to the wearer. The jackets are typically both light and warm, unlike heavy wool coats.
Winter has made it's appearance and we all have to prepare ourselves for the next 3 months. I'm not a huge fan of puffer coats but I am a huge fan of staying warm. It gives you a bit more protection against severe weather conditions than a peacoat or leather coat. It can also usually withstand rain or snow.
Puffer coats can cost anywhere from $50-$1000. I'm a believer in sticking with the lower end but quality end for coats. If you're anything like me, you'll need at least 3-4 coats for the winter and paying hundred of dollars for one is just not savvy shopping. You shouldn't have to break the bank to get a coat to stay warm during the winter months.
As you can see I prefer a puffer coat in a great color and with a cinch at the waste.
