When it comes to the history of the down puffer jacket it all begun back in 1936, when Eddie Bauer, the name behind the legendary outdoor apparel brand, introduced the Skyliner jacket. The jacket was made of down feathers within quilted fabric and was an invention that mr Bauer came up with after nearly losing his life to hypothermia during a mid winter fishing trip. Ever since, the down puffer jacket has proven to be the best protection against extreme cold weather. The combination of a light weight jacket, a durable windproof shell fabric and the insulation quality of down makes the jacket superb as protective outerwear in cold climates. Up to this day the down puffer jacket has remained the best option for a lightweight jacket to be worn in extremely cold climates.
This jacket has five pockets, all of them are expandable and can hold all kinds of necessaries, a pair of warm mittens will be easy to store in one of the large lower pockets just as an example. The two smaller chest pockets can also be used as so-called "hand warmer pockets" with openings that makes them easy to access. At the front of the jacket closes with a Riri zipper that opens both ways and is covered with a flap that buttons up to prevent cold winds from getting at you. The hood of the jacket is detachable with two zippers, making the jacket versatile. All the snap buttons has been reinforced with small leather pieces behind them to protect the fabric from the edges of the buttons.
