Invented by American outdoorsman and wilderness fanatic Eddie Bauer in 1930, puffer jackets were born out of necessity. Back then, lining a quilt jacket with down feathers wasn't just to earn style points, but a practical way to prevent hypothermia. Now, puffer jackets have been interpreted in a number of ways by various brands, cementing the insulated outerwear as one of the steeziest ways to stay warm in winter.

Puffer jacket stan A$AP Rocky has been seen wearing them in outrageous colors from Balenciaga. Through the eyes of Demna Gvasalia, Balenciaga rendered the classic ’90s staple in a contemporary short-crop/long-sleeve cut with impeccable technical precision and understated branding. Meanwhile, The North Face has kept to a more traditional puffer with its classic 1992 Nuptse jacket, which can't really be bettered.

We've rounded up the best puffer jackets on the market right now, ranging from low-key styles from H&M and Topman, to a louder color-blocking option with detachable sleeves from Faith Connexion.
