It’ll come as no surprise that in the last few years the padded or more commonly known puffer jacket has become a staple for all horse riders, dog walkers and anyone who spends a great deal of time outdoors.
Light weight, easy to store, the ultimate layering piece, so simple to care for and above all – warm!
It’s the perfect “under the waterproof” jacket in winter and the best piece for transitional spring days or cooler summer mornings and evenings.
Enter the Lofty and Cosy jackets by Toggi Sport. Two beautiful padded, puffer style jackets with the best technical features you expect from that Toggi quality guarantee.
But why do we offer two styles? And which should you choose?
We’re here to help you decide which Toggi Sport puffer jacket is the perfect fit for you:
Our original Lofty jacket was lovingly created with the rider that spends a lot of time in the saddle in mind and available in Navy or Black.
A super functional jacket, the Lofty is crafted from quality polyester fabric with superior water repellent finish. Filled with 80/20 Ethical down feather filling. Featuring a 2 way YKK zip, fleece lined zip pockets, internal patch pockets and a pack away bag for handy storage.
It is deliberately designed to sit a little shorter than other padded jackets on the market to ensure total freedom of movement, no interference with the cantle no matter what activities you enjoy with your horse.
The shorter cut also ensures trainers, coaches or those on the ground can get a better view point of your core and position whilst still providing warmth and coverage when training.
Other than for sporting purposes it is also particularly suited to shorter riders or those with a shorter torso.
The Lofty is a firm favourite with our ambassadors Pippa Funnell and Kitty King who, and we quote, ‘live in theirs’.
Our Cosy Padded Jacket is new to our Toggi Sport Collection for SS 2022 and comes in two colours: the ultra functional ‘goes with everything’ Navy, and the ‘super chic, save for best’ Mink.
Just like the Lofty it has a water repellent finish and features a 2 way YKK zip, fleece-lined zip pockets, and internal patch pockets.
The differing features of the Cosy are the fill and the length – the Cosy comes in at around three ‘baffles’ (that’s the heat sealed padded bits!) longer than the Lofty is a fantastic choice for taller riders, those with longer torsos or those that just like to cover up a little more – it is also filled with 100% polyester filling ensuring you keep warm when cooler weather hits.
This also means that even though it’s just as effective at keeping you warm it comes with an ever so slightly lower price tag than the Lofty’s ethical down fill, without compromising on quality.
So there we have it, the Lofty and the Cosy explained… The only problem now is which colour to choose!
