Winter will soon be pissing off and my god I couldn’t be happier about it. That being said, it’s been an excellent excuse to wear all your warm clothes and lay inside in the foetal position. Just throwing it out there, that puffer jackets are where it’s at when it comes to rugging up, at least for me.

Puffy jackets have really exploded in popularity recently and it’s not hard to see why. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be snug as a bug? I’m now on the hunt for the perfect one out of all the puffer jackets in Australia, and you’re coming with me on this journey. Hopefully because you actually want to.

I’ve done some digging and found loads. Quick note – not all puffer jackets are the same. Some are filled with polyester, some with down, some with more ethical down (as in, there is some form of transparency around where the down comes from).

Generally speaking polyester fill can be great for general cool temps, but if you’re, say, heading into some sub zero business you might want to get a down-filled puffer. Then again, if the polyester fill is dense enough it can be a great vegan option – just do some research.

Here are a bunch of ops for ya.
