Best puffer jackets for women at a glance

How we chose the best puffer jackets for women

I’ve scoured the high street for the best puffer jackets for women that are in stock. Here’s how I chose them:

  • Price: There’s a puffer jacket to suit every budget - whether you want a designer puffer jacket that will last you years, or a bargain piece that still does the job without breaking the bank. We selected puffer jackets at both ends of the scale, so there’s something for everyone. 
  • Style: We looked for the most stylish puffer jackets for women that we could find. Just because the weather is cold doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on style!
  • Length: We recognise that some shoppers want a long puffer, others want something shorter. We catered for both.
  • Colour: From bright shades to muted tones, and classic black, cream and navy blue - we wanted puffers of all shades to feature in this roundup.
  • Reviews and trusted brands: We included raincoats from our list of trusted brands with solid reputations - Marks & Spencer, The North Face, Amazon and more. Where it wasn’t possible to test the coats ourselves we only selected waterproof coats that had a large volume of positive reviews from trusted shoppers.
