If you live in a cold climate, or are considering an adventure to the snow country, a puffy jacket may be one of your first apparel considerations. Puffy jackets are on trend, worn by everyone from regular tourists to professional skiers, and it's worth knowing what all the fuss is about. Anaconda understands the equation, delivering an unbeatable puffy jacket range for women, men and kids, in styles that are guaranteed to impress.
What are the puffy jackets called?
Puffy jackets are so popular that they are now known generically as 'puffy jackets', although there are different styles known by various names. They are sometimes called puffer jackets and quilted jackets due to their signature design, where strong and evenly spaced stitching is interspersed with synthetic or down filling, creating the easily recognised puffy effect.
Attributes of puffy jackets include impressive warming capabilities, lightweight design and compressible materials that facilitate convenient storage in a very small space. In comparison to wool or leather jackets, puffer jackets are lighter, warmer, and more suitable for camping, hiking and outdoor adventures. There are lots of advantages with puffy jackets, and here are just a few.
Travelling: Anyone who travels a lot visiting cooler destinations will benefit by having a puffer jacket in tow. A puffer jacket makes any situation more comfortable, whether you are travelling by plane, boat, car or train. When the weather warms up, simply stuff your jacket into your carry-on baggage or its own purpose-designed pouch. Your puffy jacket can even be scrunched up to form a comfortable travel pillow on long distance journeys.
Outdoor adventures: The warming capability of puffy jackets, courtesy of synthetic fibre or down filling, makes them an essential item for serious adventurers. They don't take up much space in a backpack and will keep you warm and toasty in the snow, at the camp site or exploring natural beauty wherever you are.
Errands around town: Down and synthetic puffy jackets allow you to keep warm in winter without looking overly bulky. They are lightweight and allow flexibility, perfect for visiting the shops in winter or just visiting a neighbour around the corner.
Hanging out with friends: It can be a struggle for some people to head out at night during winter. Instead of wearing a heavy jacket that can't be discarded or running from the car in a freezing dash to reach a warmer place, you should consider a puffy jacket. It can be worn when you need it and stuffed in your purse or bag when not in use.
Commuting to the gym or pool: Packability is a big winner with puffy jackets. Zipping around town for yoga, the gym, the heated pool or elsewhere requires smart clothing solutions for a quick change. In almost every situation where you are uncertain whether to wear a coat or not, a puffy jacket is the versatile answer.
How to wash a puffy jacket?
There are two common types of puffy jackets, synthetic or down. Synthetic-filled jackets can be washed relatively safely on a sensitive wash cycle in a regular front loader washing machine. Down feathers are a little less forgiving and require novel cleaning solutions as an alternative to professional cleaning services. Appropriate cleaning methods will extend the lifespan of your jacket and a periodic freshen up needn't do your down jacket any harm. Here are some basic steps for keeping your puffy jacket clean and in shape.
1: Remove loose dirt with a brush.
2: Do up zips and Velcro and close any jacket flaps.
3: Clear your front loader washing machine detergent compartment of any residue.
4: Set the washing machine to cold wash or delicate wool cycle.
5: Use appropriate cleaner recommended for a down jacket.
6: Dry in a tumble dryer on a low heat.
7: Add some tennis balls to the dryer to stop clumping and help re-fluff the down.
Always check the label of a new jacket for exact care details and avoid washing it in a top loader machine as the central agitator may damage the garment.
