Yes, you guys…this is the third year in a row I’ve featured the Uniqlo Puffer. Why, you may ask? Well…it’s lightweight, warm, comfortable, nice looking, reasonably-priced, hugely popular, gets great reviews, is an easy-to-wear style, and I wear it on repeat year after year.
Also, the Uniqlo puffer’s simple design is the perfect “canvas” for showcasing my obsession with the mix-and-match, pick-a-pom winter hats. So… it doesn’t really make sense NOT to get excited when these puffers come back in stock. Right? Warning: In year’s past, the navy and black have sold out pretty fast.
The Search For The Perfect Puffer Coat — A Review
I wrote my initial puffer post two years ago, and then wrote about the Uniqlo and Boden Puffers again in 2019. Briefly: I had been searching for the perfect puffer coat. I wanted: lightweight, not too constricting, nice lines that don’t make me look like a giant marshmallow…warm (of course), covers my tush, and most importantly, something fun…interesting…with some sort of oomph.
I gave up my search for the perfect interesting unique puffer and bought what I thought (at the time) was the most boring coat ever from Uniqlo. It ended up being fantastic. Super-comfy, a pretty matte finish, nice lines, and a perfect neutral for all the pops of color winter accessories I like to add. I’m now on year three of wearing it on the repeat. AND — I keep getting compliments on my very basic (dare I say a bit boring?) coat.
Although I do still think the Boden coat is a fun fabulous option, this year I decided to change it up a bit and try ALL the colors of my beloved Uniqlo puffer. Per usual, I’ll continue trying other puffers throughout this winter, but come this time next year? My prediction is I’ll be talking about the Uniqlo coat yet again.

Although I’m obviously a huge fan of the Uniqlo puffer, my plan is to continue my search for more great puffers throughout this winter. Last year I took a look at AllSaints, as well as J.Crew and Everlane. I’ve also looked at the Amazon Coat and Alternatives to the Amazon Coat. I’m pretty excited to try this Athleta velvety short puffer and the Allbirds new puffer as well. Any other puffer jackets out there you guys really want the TME team to review? Let us know what brands you guys are searching!
Also…let me know your thoughts on the colors I tried. I already have the navy one from a few years ago, but kind of want another one. I won’t tell you the color I’m leaning toward, so I don’t influence your comments…ha! Thanks, guys!
