CHERRY CHICK Women’s Winter Packable Down Hooded Jacket
We’re starting off with this casual puffer jacket by Cherry Chick. It is a jacket that not only packs into a small pouch, but it is also ultra light, barely adding any weight to your luggage. The down insulation is a blend of 90% white duck down and 10% feathers. The collar is hooded, which is elasticized to fit better on the head.
It comes with a water-resistant main zipper and chin guard on the collar. The sleeves turn inwards at the cuffs and have elastic wrists for a better fit, as well as to help keep the warmth inside the jacket. This is a spacious jacket, with two zip pockets on the outside and two oversized pockets on the inside.
A great feature is its thinly spread down, held in place by horizontal stitching. This makes it easy to wear as a layer underneath a thicker winter coat, for those who live up north. It withstands light raining and it is fully insulated, as well as windproof.
There are over 50 color options to choose from, some of which include: Burgundy, Black, Rose Red, Moto Dark and Lake Blue.
