We’re just gonna say it: Your puffy jacket sucks.

Your insulated jacket uses outdated technology that’s over 80 years old. Its fabrics trap humidity and sweat, causing you to overheat when active and leaving you wet and cold when you stop. The stitching used to keep the antiquated insulation in place prevents sufficient weather protection. Additionally, its style and colors look out of place in urban settings, resulting in a closet full of jackets you rarely use.

Welcome to the 21st century. The AirLoft Jacket is the next generation of insulated jacket. Built from the fiber up by chemists and tested by athletes, the AirLoft Jacket is designed to solve all the performance issues of other insulated jackets with a style you can wear anywhere, no matter the weather, season, or occasion. This jacket is temperature regulating, breathable, stain-proof, water resistant, durable, packable, and versatile. Providing ultimate freedom, you’ll forget you’re wearing it.

The AirLoft Jacket is packed full of features and meticulously crafted with four zip pockets, a cinch hood, drawstring waist, elastic cuffs, and a packable stuff pocket. The modern cut and tailored silhouette ensure freedom of movement and a flattering fit, making the AirLoft Jacket a staple you can wear in both urban and outdoor environments. 

When we set out to build a jacket as dynamic as your daily life, we knew we had to start from the fiber up. Our AirLoft™ technology combines Toray’s new 3DeFX+® hollow-core, 360-degree stretch insulation with Primeflex® 4-way stretch, weather-resistant exterior fabric. AirLoft™ is built to breathe freely, move with the body, dry quickly, and keep you warm even in the wettest conditions. AirLoft™ is ready for the broadest temperature ranges and unrestricted movement. The AirLoft™ system is Bluesign approved and vegan for a more sustainable world. 

Let's make one thing clear - this is NOT just an outdoor jacket! The AirLoft Jacket has been meticulously designed and crafted from the yarn level up to perform, look great, and feel great in every scenario, no matter the weather or occasion. Its matte fabric, tailored fit, and lack of exterior branding make it as at home in the office as it is in the outdoors.

The AirLoft Jacket is designed and sized for a flattering and slimming, yet comfortable fit. Please refer to the size chart for specific garment measurements by size.

Active Fit: The flattering, tailored fit is neither tight nor relaxed. Active-fitting technical garments may be worn alone, over mid-layers, or under a shell.

*Please note: The size chart refers to the actual garment measurements of the product. In order to get the best fit, the garment measurements should be 1-2" LARGER than your body measurements to allow for the "wrap" of the fabric.

When necessary, wash with like colors and mild detergent on cold. Line dry or tumble dry low. Do not use bleach or fabric softener, as these chemicals will damage coloring and water resistance.

Reactivating Water Resistance: Over time, the water resistance may appear to wear down. Reactivate it with a quick tumble in the dryer on low or by applying a tech wash.

Avoid oils and grease, as they will permanently damage the water repellent treatment and possibly stain the piece.

We work with a vertically-integrated manufacturer that provides a fully transparent and ethical supply chain from the yarn to the finished jacket. They have decades of experience working with performance fabrics at the highest standards, including Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) standards and Bluesign.
