Puffer Jackets & Vests for Mom

altRemember years ago how the first generation of Puffer Jackets left you looking like a bloated Michelin Man? Thankfully, those days are gone.

Although I loved the first quilted down insulated jackets that emerged years ago from camping supply companies like the North Face and Patagonia, I can’t say I felt all that stylish when I wore them.

So I was excited when I saw this season’s fantastic new generation of puffer jackets and vests emerge even more evolved. And if you’re an active mom who’s constantly on the go, any one of these choices would be a great addition to add to your Fall and Winter wardrobe.

It’s a great find and well priced for a full length coat, plus the hood can be removed, which makes it fully machine washable, so you won’t have to incur unnecessary dry cleaning bills.

The Chevron quilting on this down filled mid length parka adds some nice detailing and gives it enough styling so that it can easily transition from daytime to evening wear. Plus it also features a water repellent fabric finish that will help wick moisture away and keep you dry if you happen to get caught in a rain or snowstorm.
