Which is the best puffer jacket for me?
Puffer jackets can vary significantly in weight, cost and performance, and the right jacket for you will obviously depend on how and where you plan to use it. Let's take a look at a few things to consider before making a purchase.
Type of filling
Most puffer jackets will be filled with either synthetic or down insulation. Both types of insulation can produce warm, lightweight and packable jackets, however they do perform differently in certain conditions. While down will provide better breathability and packability, it is not good in wet conditions and is also usually more expensive. Synthetics will often perform better in wet weather (as they won't clump together when wet like down) but won't provide the same breathability or weight to warmth ratio as down will.
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 puffer jackets are always a versatile, lightweight option, they can vary in weight depending on what kind of insulation they use. However, the difference in weight between women's puffer jackets and down jackets will only be of concern if you're planning to use your jacket 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 their superior warmth to weight ratio.
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.
It's also a good idea to think about what functionality is important to you. Do you need your jacket to be fully waterproof, packable or super lightweight? Some jackets will do some of these things better than others so it's helpful to know what matters most to you.
