Choosing the right puffer is a bit of a fine art. It's not just about how much fluff you can pack in. Think DWR coatings and watertight seams for those slushy, snowy showdowns. And if you're playing for team planet, there's a whole lineup of down alternatives that bring the heat without the guilt. Our collection spans from city-sleek to wilderness-ready, featuring everything from high-end fashion houses to outdoor pros and green pioneers. Ready to face winter like a boss?
