The signature quilted design with sections that are “puffy” between the stitching give puffer jackets their name. They are filled with down insulation or synthetic fibers, both of which can provide a high level of warmth depending on how well they are made and the quality of the synthetic fibers. You will find puffer jackets extremely lightweight and they are very efficient at keeping you warm. Compared to wool or leather, puffer jackets provide the unique combination of both warmth and lightness.
The “puffs” of a puffer jacket are created by the combination of the insulation layer and stitching. RefrigiWear offers two of the most common designs, a vertical and horizontal style puffer jacket. Other patterns, such as diamond and other geometric shapes, can be created with different stitching lines. You may find that a puffer jacket with vertical stitching may provide you with a more fitted design due to the vertical lines created. Since puffer jackets aren’t weighed down by heavy materials, both horizontal and vertical puffer jackets are very roomy and comfortable to wear.
Some people may think puffer jackets aren’t fashionable because they think the style will be too bulky and unflattering. However, because of the overall lightness of the jacket, they are very flexible and sporty. Plus, because of these same reasons, they are comfortable in both cool and cold weather. The aspects that make this kind of versatility possible are the lightweight design of the garment as well as wind and water resistance.
All of RefrigiWear’s puffer jackets are manufactured to maximize versatility with several extra features, such as a wind-tight polyester microfiber outershell and bound seams to seal out drafts. As with all RefrigiWear garments, we crafted our puffer jackets with our knowledge of tough working conditions, so you won’t be disappointed in the quality of your RefrigiWear puffer or the many years of wear you can get out of it.
