The perfect fall jacket is light yet warm and, of course, totally your style. Maybe your go-to is a leather jacket, silk bomber or an oversized denim jacket. But if you’re all about the athleisure lifestyle, you may want one that combines comfort, functionality and style, like the Free People Pippa Packable Puffer Jacket.
Don’t get me wrong — this jacket isn’t new. It’s actually a few years old, and in 2021, it was so popular that it sold out over the summer. Yes, a puffer jacket sold out over the summer — so you know people really love it. And you’ll love it, too.
For starters, the jacket is packable, meaning you can fold it up into a little bag. It’s so easy to throw in a suitcase or a tote bag when traveling, knowing it will take up little room. (Pro tip: You can also use the packed jacket as a comfy little pillow.)
It also comes in 16 colors, so whether you like your neutrals or want something bolder like Neon Coral, there’s something to fit your aesthetic.
As for the fit, it’s boxy and has an oversized silhouette you can wear with jeans or leggings and wear over a chunky sweater or a hoodie. The quilted-nylon design is also super soft and more importantly, warm and water-resistant. The point of a jacket is to keep you warm, after all, right?
We’re calling it: You’re going to see this jacket everywhere this fall. Not only will the people who bought it last year be pulling it back out again, but they might even buy a second one in a fun, new color. Join them and get your own Pippa Packable Puffer. According to many reviewers, if you do, you may want to size down.
“The best in between jacket,” wrote one customer on Free People’s website in the reviews. “This jacket is the best and I wish I had it in every single color. Perfect length. I got a S but usually would be a M in jackets — definitely oversized look. It is a little bit on the thinner side so it’s perfect for the fall.”
“I cannot recommend a jacket more,” wrote another. “The pink one is to die for and I always get compliments in it!! I love how it packs up into a small bag. Super comfy and lightweight.”
While the jacket does cost just under $200 if you calculate your cost per wear, it’s a great deal and a great jacket you’ll wear year after year. But keep in mind if you want it, you should get yours soon because some colors are already starting to sell out, and fall is just around the corner.
