Our search for great jackets is always in process and to help you be better prepared for this Fall and upcoming Winter, we are bringing you another selection of down jackets.
Back in late January, we took a look at some great Down jackets for men. Today, it is the ladies’ turn and we have selected 10 jackets from some of the best brands online. They vary in style and performance, giving a variety of options for different preferences.
A note before we start: when looking for a quality Down jacket, always make sure to purchase one which is at the very least highly resistant against water.
This is important not because you run the risk of getting wet, but even if it doesn’t come to that, the Down filling will definitely get wet. Wet Down loses all of its insulating abilities and you’ll run the risk of hypothermia.
With that being said, all of the options you will find in this selection are water-resistant and it’s now time to get started.
* Note: The availability of the products below (including colors and sizes) might change at any time. Also please check the materials and features on the various shops before buying. We do our best to assure the accuracy of our articles, but sometimes they might contain errors. The product images shown are for illustration purposes only.
Cherry Chick Women’s Packable Down Jacket
By Cherry Chick, this first design is extremely lightweight and cozy. It is made of 100% Polyester, with a filling of 90% white duck down and 10% Feathers. These help keep it warm, while not adding to the weight. It comes with a hooded collar, with elastic band for better fit, as are the sleeve cuffs and the bottom hem.
There are two outer pockets on the sides and one inner security pocket for your phone and wallet. The down filling is held in place with horizontal quilting and the main zipper is water-resistant and very sturdy. Because it is so lightweight and fluffy, it is easily packable in a pouch, while also being very suitable for layering. It can be worn underneath a heavier coat for those who live in really cold areas, for a super warm layer.
The color selection for this jacket is abundant, with more than 40 options, including: Black, Moto navy, Flame red, Rose red and Rose pink.
