With fall fully underway and the depths of winter lurking around the corner, the beginnings of puffer season are here. And while some opt for long wooly coats or prefer piling on layers underneath a windbreaker, the quintessential cold weather jacket has and always will be the puffer.

Long before brands like The North Face and First Down dominated ‘90s fashion, the puffer jacket already had years of ingenuity under its belt. The original down jackets used insulating feathers from ducks, a concept that came to be when Australian chemist and mountaineer George Finch used a balloon fabric and eiderdown to craft the first puffer.

Since then, countless innovations have followed, most notably with Eddie Bauer creating the first patent for the jacket — and the rest is history.

These days, puffer jackets are still often lined with duck feathers and typically have a durable, nylon ripstop exterior. Though some brands coat their jackets with wind and water-repellent finishes, others focus on the optics, utilizing a mix of fabrics, polyester fills, and cuts that provide different qualities when outdoors.

And so, what better way to celebrate fall's arrival than with the favorite streetwear puffer jackets selected by our curators? These seasonal pieces by Entire Studios, The North Face, Stone Island, and more of our favorite brands sublimely merge aesthetics with functionality and will keep the cold at bay for the coming winter.
