Whether you're looking for a cost-effective everyday men's puffer or a premium down jacket to brave seriously arctic conditions, we've got what you're looking for. Let's take a look at the different types available.
Hooded Puffer Jacket
Hoods add an extra level of versatility to a jacket and are a great way to keep your head and neck extra warm, especially in windy or wet conditions.
Long Line Puffer Jacket
A long line puffer is great when you're looking to stay extra cosy. Usually hooded, a long line men's puffer jacket will keep you covered from your head to just above your knees.
Super-lightweight and packable, a men's puffer vest will keep your core toasty and warm while giving your arms full range of movement. For this reason, puffer vests are perfect when you're planning on getting active outdoors.
Down is arguably nature's best insulator and you'll certainly appreciate this when the temperature drops. Down jackets are also lightweight and packable and are in a class of their own when it comes to adventure wear.
What is the difference between a puffer jacket & a down jacket?
The difference between a puffer jacket and a down jacket comes down to the type of insulation used in the jacket's construction. While puffer jackets use synthetic insulation, down jackets use duck or goose down. Both types of insulation can produce warm, lightweight and packable jackets, however they do perform differently in certain conditions.
Down has traditionally been the warmer material, however synthetics have come a long way in recent years, and many will argue they are now on par with down for providing warmth. Synthetics will also often perform better in wet weather as they won't clump together when wet like down, however they won't provide the same weight to warmth ratio as down will.
How do I choose a puffer jacket?
Puffer jackets can vary significantly in weight, cost and performance. Let's take a look at a few things to consider before making a purchase.
Type of filling
As mentioned above, most puffer jackets will be filled with either synthetic or down insulation. While down will provide better breathability and packability, it is not good in wet conditions and is also usually more expensive.
The right jacket for you will obviously depend on how and where you plan to use it. Puffer jackets vary in warmth depending on the type of insulation and the quantity used. If you're not sure which jacket is best for you, check out our Outerwear Buying Guide.
While no one wants a jacket that weighs a tonne, the difference in weight between men's puffer jackets and down jackets will only be of concern if you're planning to use it when hiking for extended periods or other situations where every extra gram matters. If this is the case, you'll probably be looking for a down jacket for the superior warmth to weight ratio they provide.
Water resistant vs waterproof
The difference between a water-resistant and waterproof jacket is largely down to the fabric used to make the garment. A water-resistant material is woven very tightly so that water struggles to get through. But with enough rain, a water-resistant jacket will let some water in. On the other hand, waterproof fabric provides a complete barrier to water.
