In my opinion, a winter down jacket is both practical and convenient. In addition, now you can choose your clothes among different models and colors. It will be warm and beautiful!
Choosing a down jacket, you should pay special attention to some parameters.
The length of the down jacket is better to choose, based on what kind of clothes you wear most often. If it is pants or jeans, then a shortened version or knee-length is well suited. You can consider options with detachable collar and sleeves.
For a narrow skirt or a strict dress, down jackets are suitable below the knee. And if the skirt is quite warm, made of wool, and a free cut, then the jackets to the thighs or shortened to the waistline will look great.
Well, of course, you should take into account your individual characteristics. I, for example, merzlyachka, and short down jackets is clearly not for me. Most often, I prefer the length to the knee or slightly higher. For me it is both comfortable and warm.
Now the color scheme of winter clothing is represented by various shades – and dark, and light, and bright, and pastel. In a word, there is a choice.
In the season 2012-2013 the shades of violet, blue, brown, sand are most popular. But I am not guided by this when buying. In my opinion, the main thing is that I like the color of the down jacket, fit to the face, to the headdress and shoes.
Much attention needs to be paid to the label. The inscription down is extremely rare and indicates that the down jacket is made on 100% of down. It is more common with feathers, which means that a feather is added to the down.
Consider the ratio of components: 75/25, 80/20 or 90/10. The first number is the content of the fluff, the second is the feather. If the label is 50/50, then it is a demi-season down-padded coat, and it is not suitable for low temperatures.
Also, down jackets differ in filler – synthetic or natural. If the label says cotton – this is a padded jacket, wool – a wool padded jacket, polyester – a layer of padding polyester.
