Proof’s Stealth Down Collection Proves Puffer Jackets Don’t Need to Be Bulky

Presented by

When it comes to innovative and reliable garments that don’t sacrifice style points, Proof takes the cake. The Huckberry-exclusive clothing company seemingly can’t help but make incredible clothes that can tackle all of the rigors of life. Every type of garment the brand produces is a technical reimagining of a classic staple that’s designed through a contemporary lens. While a company this excellent could easily rest on its laurels, Proof has instead released the Stealth Down Collection, which is destined to be your new favorite puffer outerwear.

A good puffer jacket should be a staple in any man’s wardrobe. They’re ultra comfortable and extremely well-insulated for colder climates. The puffer’s weakness, however, is that these types of jackets usually sacrifice mobility for warmth. We say “usually” because Proof has broken the mold once again with its ultra-versatile and streamlined Stealth Down Collection.

The collection includes three garments of varying weights: the Stealth Down Vest, the Stealth Down Full Zip Jacket, and the Stealth Down Hoodie. All of these offerings feature are constructed with 84% nylon and 16% spandex to provide an impressive four-way stretch for the wearer, solving the mobility issue that typically plagues puffers. For an added layer of versatility, the Stealth Down Collection also features a durable water-resistant treatment to protect you from rain and snow, a welcome addition that is also curiously lacking on many competing puffers.

To tie everything together, Proof filled the garments with premium down that’s certified by the Responsible Down Standard, which means this line of outerwear is as cruelty-free as it is versatile. You can purchase Proof’s Stealth Down Collection now on Huckberry’s website, with the vest priced at $148 and both jackets going for $198.
