Puffer Jackets: the 11 best for men


Let’s take a moment here to recognise that puffer jackets are the only sensible outerwear choice this winter. If you want to actually stay warm, well-insulated and dry, regardless of the weather outside, the puffer jacket is unparalleled. Despite being bulky, puffer jackets are generally lightweight and easy to transport. They also offer the most bang for your buck in terms of warmth and versatility thanks to being filled with down. Short of a suit, there isn’t much a puffer jacket won’t look good with, and that includes your gym gear.

Puffer jackets with fur collars

Before we go any further we need to take a moment to talk about puffer jackets with fur collars. Yes, you will find plenty of examples of coats with fur collars. Fur is, after all, extremely warm and a natural insulator. In the UK’s climate though, it’s almost entirely decorative and as this list shows, it’s easy to find a coat that doesn’t use fur. Our advice: you don’t need one.
