The first-ever puffer jacket was invented in 1936 and patented in 1940 by a fisherman named Eddie Bauer after he almost lost his life to hypothermia. Housing down feathers through the use of a quilted stitch design to hold them in place, the puffer jacket's recognizable design has always prioritized functionality. The puffer jacket has since been the perfect go-to winter coat that remains stylish and regulates your body temperature even during the harshest of winters.
We've gathered puffer jackets perfect for the season ahead, with all budgets in mind -- from affordable brands to high-end outdoor labels.
