What is a Puffer Jacket?
A puffer jacket, also called a down jacket, is a jacket that offers warmth by trapping pockets of air. Down jackets are designed for hikers and mountaineers who need warm clothing during cold weather. They are not suitable for everyday wear, but they are an excellent choice for activities like hiking and mountaineering when you need some extra protection from the elements.
Features of a puffer jacket
Puffer jackets are known for their warmth and wind resistance, but they also come in a wide range of styles and colors. They’re perfect for hiking and mountaineering, especially when you want to keep protected from wind or cold.
Here are some features to look for in a puffer jacket:
– Windproof fabric to keep the cold air out when it gets too windy.
– Insulation is important when you’re wearing a down jacket, so look for ones that have synthetic insulation or down. Synthetic insulation such as cotton is bulkier and less compact than down insulation. Down is, therefore, more expensive than synthetic insulation–but makes for a fraction of the compact size.
– A hood is another great feature as it keeps your head warm and shielded as the rest of the body.
When to use a down jacket
There’s a lot of debate about whether or not you should wear a puffer jacket while hiking. Some people argue that they’re just too warm (and sometimes bulky), while others say they’re super warm and versatile.
The truth is, it depends on what kind of hiking and mountaineering you’re doing. If you’ve got a bunch of peaks to summit, then maybe it’s time to put away the fleece and pick up a down jacket! But we doubt you’ll need a puffer if you’re going for a leisurely stroll on the trail with your dog–well, unless it’s cold or windy.
If you’re on an overnight hike or camping trip, then yes—you definitely want to bring along some extra warmth! But if you’re just going for a short walk with your significant other or friends, then wearing something lightweight and breathable is probably best for keeping everyone comfortable.
When hiking around Kenya, you’ll typically use your puffer jacket for the cold camping nights and preserve your fleece jacket for day hiking. If you have no problem risking getting your down jacket soaked in a sudden shower, then go for it (we doubt you will)!
