For me, today was the day. What day, you ask? The day I stepped outside and thought, “Brr, winter is coming.” We’ve been lucky enough to enjoy relatively warm temps through the beginning of November, but now the big chill is imminent. And you need to be ready!
Of course that means a super warm and cozy coat that will keep you toasty all season long. To help ensure you’re ready for the long, cold winter ahead, we’re sharing the best puffy coats for your shopping convenience below. Don’t wait until the last minute to buy one–they’ll likely be sold out by then!
The Best Puffy Coats
Colors Available: 6
Highlights: 6 big pockets; 90% white duck down, 10% feather filling; special side zipper for moving around more freely; both lightweight and warm-keeping
“I love this jacket. Got it at XS and it fit perfectly – no tightness, no wind getting from under the jacket and no fabric stretching! I like the pockets, which can store my phone, purse, gloves, camera and every other necessity for an outdoor trip. And it’s super warm. I wore it with only a t-shirt and leggings and went outdoors when there was moderate snow and temperature was -3 celsius or 27 fahrenheit outdoors. The surface is water-resistant and the snow glides away on the surface. Some spots later got wet from melted snow caught around the bend of the elbow, but these dried up quickly.” – Arale
Colors Available: 2
Highlights: Primaloft® down blend-silver insulation (60/40); fixed hood with detachable fur trim; Gore-tex® wool like nylon outer
“The best puffer is Spyder’s Metro GTX Infinium Down Parka. It’s insanely warm and has a detachable faux fur trim. But I fully plan to keep mine on this winter!” – Justine
Colors Available: 4
Highlights: Slim, semi-fitted silhouette; down/feather fill
“I’ve lived in the Northeast my whole life, which means I have a lot of coats. The warmest one I own? A Moncler. The style I own is long-ish, so it covers a lot of my body and it’s filled with down so it’s extra warm even when the weather is freezing. I intentionally purchased a size larger so that I could layer sweaters underneath and this has been a life-saver during winter commutes. If you’re wondering if I actually paid over $1,000 for a coat, I didn’t. I purchased mine secondhand for a fraction of the original price!” – Jeanine
Colors Available: 4
Highlights: Packed with 100g of Heatseeker Eco insulation; durable water-repellent finish
“When it comes to jackets that will keep you warm, I always swear by The North Face. My favorite part about this one is that you can cinch in the waist, so even though it is a puffy jacket, you won’t look shapeless.” – Alisha
Colors Available: 3
Highlights: Attached hood with detachable faux fur lining; 4 pocket front; zip front with snap button closure
“I know I’m going to own my commute this winter in this jacket. It’s got everything I could want: zipper *and* button front, deep pockets with closures that my earphones wont slip out of, knit ribbed cuffs on the sleeves to keep the wind out, a big hood with detachable fur, and it’s long enough to cover my butt! There’s even a couple of smaller zip pockets on the front that I’ll probably keep my Metrocard in for easy access, and it’s overall SO warm.” – Morgan
Colors Available: 10
Highlights: water-repellent coating; 90% down filling; pocketable design can be stored in the carrying pouch
“This is a really great coat for the fall when it’s cold, but not cold enough for a huge jacket. It’s also great for winter because it’s light and can fit under pretty much any other coat.” – Hannah
