Puffed Warmth: Kids Puffed Jackets from Beijing


A down jacket is a jacket which has been insulated with the soft and warm under feathers from duck or geese. Down is a fantastic insulator as the loft (or fluffiness) of down creates thousands of tiny air pockets which trap warm air and retain heat, thus helping to keep the wearer very warm in cold winter weather.

The down fill of a jacket will be either goose down, duck down or a combination of the two. All down jackets using any of these feathers will keep you warm, with duck or a combination of duck and geese feathers often being more affordable.

George Finch, an Australian mountaineer, scientist, and inventor, popularized the use of down. He unveiled his custom-made “eiderdown jacket” on the slopes of Chomolungma as a member of the 1922 British Mount Everest expedition. It was described by a contemporary as “the most wonderful apparatus that will make you die of laughing.” Moreover, Finch’s knee-length eiderdown jacket was a stark departure from the mountaineering kits of the day. Instead of a suit of Norfolk Tweed worn over several layers of silk, cotton, or wool and topped with windproof gabardine jackets Finch wore a down-lined jacket made of bright green fabric intended for use on a hot air balloon.

Of course, today’s puffers are different, more warm, less heavy and more comfortable. Special technologies, like insulated stitching, are used to make their owners feel good even in the coldest weather.
