Everlane Review: Re:Down Sleeping Bag Puffer

If you follow me on Instagram @jesswithless you may have noticed this jacket sneakily hiding on a clothing rack in some of my recent posts. I had a few of you request a review on it so here we are! I’ve been testing the coat out every day for about two weeks since it’s been surprisingly chilly this early in the year here on the East Coast. I work early some days (usually starting around 6 AM) and I walk to work so this little coat has been amazing for that!

My Review:

Fit

I ordered the Ochre in an XXS and for a quick size reference, I’m 5’2″ and typically wear the XXS on tops and coats from Everlane unless I want a more oversized look. Since this coat is already has a bigger look I went with my normal size and I love the way it fits! When I first took it out of the box I was worried it would overwhelm my petite frame and I would look like I was just in a sleeping bag, ha! Surprisingly it fits so well, I have people stop me on the streets to compliment me on this coat! The arms are not too long and the hem hits a good spot that I don’t feel like it makes me look short or disproportionate.

Warmth 

It’s not bulky! This coat is surprisingly light for how warm it keeps me. You can actually pack it up similar to a sleeping bag and push all the air out to make it smaller and even more pack-able. I tried it with a small cloth bag and it wound up a pretty small size that would be a great coat to travel with.

Construction/Quality

Front closures are a thick sturdy zipper with plastic snaps. I personally just use the snaps to close up the top half but when it gets super cold I’ll be zipping it up all the way. Wearing this coat is literally like wearing a weather-protected sleeping bag- you almost forget what the actual outside temperature feels like, you are in your own climate in this thing! 

It also has two GIANT side pockets with the same snap closure…like you can fit your whole arm in them….almost. My hands get especially cold in the winter but they will not on this coat’s watch!

Outfit details

Worth the price?

Yes! Considering a similar coat and style the Canada Goose coat ranges from $500 – $1,500 (holy wow) and this is such a similar version to those for a fraction of the cost. The quality is great so I imagine I won’t need to replace it for many years to come!

What I’d Change

I know Everlane is working on extending their size options so I’d love to see that especially in their coat section since coats are such an important piece to have in your wardrobe. Especially since IMO this is such a good quality + warm + affordable option!
