Down jacket has long been an indispensable item of every closet. It is worn by children, young people, middle-aged people and retirees. What causes the love of customers to this type of clothing? Jackets filled with natural or modified down, are lightweight, compactly folded, and can keep you warm in the bitter cold and protect you from the strongest wind.
It is worth noting that this is not only a practical product. Manufacturers pay special attention to the design of their down jackets. What only style solutions do not use in manufacturing! It can be pure sporty and classic models, but it can be an exclusive cut combining casual and noble chic. Some down jackets are produced in limited editions and are instantly sold out by fashionistas and fashionistas, despite their high cost.
But how to make the right purchase, not focusing only on the price, so then do not regret about it, and enjoy the acquisition and wear clothes with pleasure? About this we will tell below.
How to choose a down jacket
The most important thing is to determine exactly what model we want to buy and what requirements it must meet. We suggest you get acquainted with the parameters to which we first of all pay attention.
- Destination.This is the main criterion when buying. On where you’re going to wear a down jacket and in what weather, depends on the choice of this or that model. For sports suit a shorter version. For hiking in extreme conditions, there are special jackets with improved thermal characteristics. An elongated down jacket will protect the back from the wind. It can be worn in an urban environment, as well as during outdoor activities.
- Filling.Most down jackets use natural feather and down as a heater. The higher the % of down, the jacket keeps the heat better and is lighter in weight. In recent years, manufacturers use artificial down, which in characteristics is not inferior to natural, but costs much lower.
- Size between stitches. The jacket should have small stitching blocks, so down does not pile up, does not form lumps, evenly arranged for reliable protection from the cold and after washing it returns to its original appearance.
- The quality of tailoring. Make sure that all seams are evenly stitched, no threads stick out anywhere. It is important to pay attention to the lining, whether you can see feathers and down, otherwise all the time you wear clothes to clean. Fittings must be strong. A big plus if the kit provides a bag with buttons and buttons.
- Additional details. The hood will protect from bad weather. The down jacket is a plus if it and the fur trim can be detached, then the model becomes universal to wear. Additional cuffs on the sleeves, drawstrings in the hood and waist will not let the cold penetrate inside.
Which outerwear is warmer – a fur coat, a sheepskin coat, a parka or a down jacket
Before proceeding to the rating, let us understand what is the warmest of the outer clothing, and what kind is better to give preference to.
- Fur coat. The most popular winter garment among women. Fur coats make you feel comfortable in cold up to -40°. But it all depends on the fur used, the quality of its dressing, proper tailoring. The warmest fur is considered to be fox and mouton. But widespread mink is slightly inferior to them in its heat-saving properties.
- Sheepskin coat. Tufts were traditionally worn in Russia to protect against the harshest winters. Modern sheepskin coat is an analogue of such clothes. They are warm, thanks to the fur on the inside. They are able to withstand low temperatures, but just like fur coats, everything depends on the quality of the fur dressing.
- Parka. Lengthened jacket has become quite popular with customers. Designed at one time for the military, it used a special fabric. Modern models are also made of innovative materials with high protective properties. Winter variants perfectly keep warm, so many people stop their choice on this kind of clothing.
- Down jacket. Its main advantage is the light weight. Unlike heavy fur coats and sheepskin coats, it is comfortable for outdoor activities and city life. Down jacket has good heat retention, some models can withstand temperatures down to -50 ° C.
From all of the above, we can conclude that each type of clothing is good in its own way, and the customer chooses it according to his personal preferences. But it is worth noting that it is in down jackets that athletes conquer the peaks, and explorers are in the harshest extreme conditions. In our rating we have selected the best models of down jackets, which were given the highest ratings from users and experts.
