We don’t imagine that when Eddie Bauer forged the quilted down technology required for his 1936 Skyliner jacket, he quite expected it would end up going quite as mainstream as it did.
These days you can buy puffer jackets from near enough any fashion store on the high street. Take a walk through your city in winter and you’re almost guaranteed to walk past more puffer jackets than you can count on two hands.
What started as a jacket designed purely for use in the outdoor extremes has now become something not unfamiliar on catwalks. Of course, in the time that it’s taken for that to happen, the purpose-built adventure puffer has grown into quite the specimen of clothing as well.
Enter the Patagonia Micro Puff jacket; a puffer specifically built to offer winter warmth without the weight or bulkiness.
“It’s the lightest, most compressible synthetic jacket Patagonia have ever made”
The ultralight nylon shell of the Micro Puff is durable, water resistant, water repellent and windproof. Underneath this, there’s Patagonia’s revolutionary PlumaFill synthetic insulation which is capable of offering the lightweight warmth and compression of down, with the added bonus of being able to perform effectively even when it gets wet.
