The Homeschool Further Forward Puffy is a nice bit of layering at a very reasonable price. It’s a light to mid level puffy that provides mid level warmth and top level breathability. This is a nice improvement on the previous years version and it fits a lot better. It’s not super light and packable but it’s not bulky by any means either. What separates this from the other puffiy jackets out there is it’s exceptional breathability.

I run warm so this will be a jacket I will use to layer up when its really cold. I’ve also already worn this a lot around town and love it’s fit and look. The missing hood isn’t that missed as I pretty much only wear this on dry days or as a layer underneath a very waterproof jacket like the Universe. Also there aren’t pit zips but other than that this puffy works really well as a stand a lone or 2 layer up when it’s really cold.
