We Tested Everlane’s New Recycled Down Puffer Coats — and Our Reviews Are In
When we heard about Everlane's newest launch—Re:Down, a line of three lightweight puffer coats made from entirely recycled materials—we instantly knew we had to try it for ourselves. New York winters can be brutal, and these warm, stylish, and sustainably-made jackets seemed like the perfect solution. After putting them to the test, our editors are here to give their honest reviews of the new Everlane Women's Re:Down Puffy Puff and Sleeping Bag coats and the Men's Re:Down Reversible Puffer.
The Re:Down Puffy Puff in Dark Spice
"I tested out Everlane’s Re:Down Puffy Puff in Dark Spice. The quality and comfort are top-notch, which has been my experience with all the Everlane products I’ve tried so far. There is a lot to love about this coat—it’s machine-washable, it has an insulated hood, and the down is super soft and warm but still lightweight. In person there's a slight sheen—an almost metallic quality—to the Dark Spice shade, which I wasn’t expecting, but even so it’s a lovely color. Overall, the coat is the perfect mix of style and comfort for the everyday commute to and from work, or for keeping warm while running around the city on the weekends."

The Re:Down Sleeping Bag Puffer in Ochre
"My favorite thing about Everlane is its sustainable mission—fast fashion takes a major toll on the environment, and this brand works to combat that by sourcing materials responsibly. The Sleeping Bag Puffer in particular is created with a filling of 100% recycled down and feathers and a shell made from 18 renewed plastic bottles. And the coat's super warm and comfy! However, it does seem to run big. I ordered my usual size and wish I would've sized down."

The Re:Down Reversible Puffer in Black
"I’ve always been a little weary of wearing a puffer coat because, well, I don’t really want to look puffier. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the Everlane puffer isn’t too thick but is still just as warm. I also love that it’s packable, so I’ll be able to fold it up and take it on trips this winter, instead of suffering through the cold like I usually do. My only issue with the coat is that the sleeves are a bit short on me, but it still fits better in the body than almost any winter coat I’ve had in the past."

The Re:Down Puffy Puff in Bone
"I might be the only one in the office counting down until the first snowfall. Winter is my favorite season, and Everlane’s bone-colored puffer is the slope-side coat of my dreams. It’s surprisingly light (like a big, bright, fluffy cloud) yet keeps me excessively warm without overwhelming my small frame—not to mention the extra-deep pockets are a godsend for storing bulky gloves when I want to snap a mountaintop selfie. Can’t wait to break this baby out in Tahoe this ski season!"

The Re:Down Reversible Puffer in Dark Forest / Copper Brown
"Everything about this jacket is right up my alley. Not only do the dark forest and copper brown colors match my style palette exactly, but the dual-sided reversibility factor and the breathable yet cozy design were pleasant surprises I wasn’t expecting. Plus, the quality is fantastic—I can’t wait to wear it all winter long."
