There’s no denying the fact that Canadian weather can be unpredictable at any point in the year, but never more so than during the fall months. You might expect everything from frigid morning to scorching afternoons, and a mix of rain (or snow even) possibly sprinkled in throughout the day.

Clothing choices can often become a challenge in these conditions, but lightweight layers are one way to take the stress out of getting dressed. The Amazon Essentials Womens Packable Puffer Vest is one simple solution to fall apparel, and it rings in starting at an affordable $35.

SHOP IT: Amazon, from $35

This vegan-friendly puffer vest is made entirely from polyester, yet still manages to provide lightweight warmth when you want it. Designed to be worn over or under other layers, it can also be easily packed away into a convenient carrying bag once the temperature starts to heat up.

This vest is water-resistant to keep you dry in wet weather, and comes in 11 colours and patterns to choose from.

'Fits like a dream’

Amazon shoppers have been impressed by this affordable vest’s performance, calling it “great quality for the price” and a “nice layering piece.” So far, the Amazon Essentials Womens Packable Puffer Vest has earned a 4.5-star rating and more than 2,800 5-star reviews.

One reviewer noted that this vest is “lightweight but still warm,” as well as being “fitted but not tight.”

Another reviewer shared that its lightweight design makes this vest “perfect” for outdoor activities like “camping and light hiking,” and shared that it “fits like a dream.”

However, some reviewers weren’t a fan of the slim fit, and suggested sizing up, particularly if you “plan on wearing a sweatshirt or sweater” underneath it.

Verdict

Available in sizes X-Small to XX-Large, this packable vest is easy to throw on for chilly mornings as well as being tucked away into your bag as the day warms up. If you prefer a more relaxed fit to your clothing, you’ll want to size up for a more comfortable fit — especially if you plan to layer.
