Not Your Father’s Puffer Vest
By Jenny Bahn
The puffer vest. One of those warm and toasty items of clothing most often associated with function, not fashion: fishing trips on freezing mornings, sub-zero ski trips, camping with the fam. Despite their tendency to go disastrously wrong, there’s a reason the puffer vest has stuck around for as long as it has, and that reason has something to do with keeping you very, very warm. Yes, when February comes around, you might be begging for one of these to double (or triple) layer underneath a coat, just to make sure you keep the essentials warm. Check out these options from Quiksilver, True Religion, and Aeropostale.
