Types of women's quilted lightweight jackets
You can find these cozy items in mid-length and longer styles. Vests are also available. Most have outer shells made of synthetic materials such as nylon. Down or a synthetic material provides warmth and insulation. Goose down provides excellent insulation and doesn't weigh much, but it becomes less effective when wet. Synthetic insulation continues to warm even when wet, but wears out faster than down. Expect outerwear with synthetic insulation to last for approximately five to 10 years.
