A review of the Women’s Bison Puffer Jacket

from United by Blue

This practical, yet sleek, jacket was gifted to me a few months prior to my trip to England. I’ve been patiently waiting to test it out since it’s meant for 0-50 degrees, and Florida hadn’t quite dipped to those numbers yet. I have to say, it’s been absolutely perfect for traveling and wearing in the English weather!

The Bison Puffer Jacket is lightweight, waterproof and filled with bison fiber & a recycled poly blend. The B100 ™ Fill Insulation is temperature regulating, hypoallergenic, warm when wet, keeps its shape, lightweight and flexible. Bison fiber is usually discarded as waste within the ranching industry, but can be a rather valuable byproduct - & that’s where United by Blue steps in. Why not use this wonderful resource that keeps some of the toughest animals warm throughout the winter?

Not only are they making use of someone else’s waste, each coat purchased removes 1 pound of trash from the world’s oceans and waterways.

Other great features of the Bison Puffer Jacket:

  • Internal storm flap 

  • Soft and warm fleece-lined pockets {which feel great if you don’t have gloves on!}

  • Elastic sleeve cuff 

  • Drawcords at hem {I’ve liked this during windy days}

  • Interior phone pocket with headphone port {even for the iPhone+}

I’m wearing the coat in a size Small, which has been great for layering sweaters and long sleeves since I’m usually a size XS. I’ve been needing a black jacket to go with everything, but it also comes in a pretty wine color if you are looking for a pop of color!

All-in-all, I’m incredibly grateful to have this jacket with me during my travels. There is nothing worse than feeling cold and wet while walking around to see the sights. I’ll be on the lookout for more bison fiber products in the future! It truly is a great sustainable alternative to down and other synthetics.
