I’m modeling this packable down puffer coat with a pretty infinity scarf given to me by my older daughter for Christmas. Because the scarf happens to have little silver and shiny threads woven in it, I think it ties in nicely with the silver fabric of the jacket.

I was kind of amazed by easily the coat went into the bag. When I later pulled the coat out of the bag, it quickly puffed back up and looked like its original self in a couple of minutes. Pretty cool, huh?  I’ve seen more and more puffer jackets coming with their own matching bags, like this one and this one.
