If you haven’t noticed, it’s pretty cold outside, like really cold, like Ice Age cold. But, a bit of snow or even a blizzard should not deter your desire to get an absolute fit off. While gloves and hats are not necessarily the coolest thing to wear on your arctic adventures outside the house, a puffer, especially one that’s sustainable and made from recycled materials, definitely is. We’ve picked out 10 puffer jackets that are set to keep you nice and toasty until spring rears its head.
This MCQ jacket is made from recycled materials and is lined with cashmere(!!!), basically guaranteed to keep you warm. The design has a sort of crushed up skittles feel to it and is adorned with translucent pockets and an adjustable hood. Subtle, cool and cosy all in one.
This Nike marble print jacket made from Thermore® EcoDown® is both lightweight and insulated, meaning that you have no excuse for ‘being cold’ anymore for your next outdoor workout.
Inspired by the technical gear worn by climbers of K2, this Moncler jacket is made from ECONYL, a durable recycled material that will weather you through sleet, snow and some guy coughing next to you in the supermarket.
This HOLZWEILER hooded down jacket is much easier to wear than it is to pronounce and is made up of re-purposed fibres that were originally set to go to waste.
Acne Studios’ coat is made from 100% recycled down and recycled duck feathers. The oversized style gives us serious ‘if Rick Owens dressed the Michelin man’ vibes.
You probably already have a Nuptse jacket (if not, what are you doing??), but a good way to treat yourself to some luxury is this Prada padded jacket made from recycled polyamide in racing red.
Patagonia sets the standard when it comes to keeping warm while being sustainable. This recycled shell-down jacket would work in the Andes as it would your living room when you forgot to pay your heating bill.
PANGAIA is an environmentally conscious brand that has the added benefit of looking damn good. This short puffer in hibiscus red is made up of FLWRDWN™, a bio-based down-fill material created using natural wild flowers and a biopolymer.
