Are Thin Down Jackets Warm?

Are thin down jackets warm? To answer that, let me tell you about my mine.

At the beginning of last spring, I picked up this chic, cream-colored Soia + Kyo puffer jacket. It was March, and here in Toronto in March, it’s nice and sunny, but it’s still pretty cold out. I was itching to get out of my winter parka and into a lighter jacket, but it was too cold for a spring jacket. And bingo, I happened upon this thin, down jacket. (similar)

I love the color, and the “Jacinda” style is perfect. It’s a long jacket (it covers my bottom), lightweight, and very fitted. It has a beautiful hood with an asymmetrical closure and rib storm cuffs with thumbholes.

This light-down jacket is similar to my beautiful Mackage winter parka, which is no surprise because Soia and Kyo is a sister company to Mackage. Both parkas have so much style for utilitarian winter jackets!

I bought this coat on the spot, took it home, and began wearing it instantly. It’s fantastic and so warm!!

I walk every morning, and this simple, beautiful coat is my go-to jacket. It’s so light, it’s a joy to walk in, it’s fitted, gives me a great shape, and is thin, but it keeps me totally comfortable and not all cold. I wear it in the spring, I’ve worn it in the fall, and I’ve even worn it in winter.

What I love best about it is that it is so lightweight. I can roll it up in a ball, throw it in my suitcase and take it with me when I travel, in case it gets cold. It hardly weighs anything at all.

I checked with Soia + Kyo about how warm this jacket will keep you. It’s good up to -5°C / 23°F. So there you have it. This coat is a winner, warm, comfy, and ultra-chic. If you can find one, you will also fall in love with it! I can only find it in black at the moment.
