It's no secret that the Yahoo Canada team members are big fans of Lululemon, having raved about their backpacks, leggings and shoes in the past. Now that we're nearing winter and the temperatures have dropped, we also set our sights on the ever-popular Wunder Puff Jacket. This down-filled puffer jacket is currently available in a range of different colours and lengths to suit your style, and is a great option for Canadian winters.

I've been wearing the Wunder Puff Jacket on morning walks and quick errands, but I personally prefer a longer length jacket if I'm spending more than 20 minutes outdoors. 

  • Lightweight, water-resistant
  • Removable hood
  • Fitted cuffs block out wind
  • Regular length still a bit short for bum coverage
  • Down filling isn't vegan-friendly

As an avid Lululemon shopper, I'm surprised it's taken me this long to give their outerwear a shot — and I have to say I wasn't let down. The Wunder Puff has become my go-to for quicker outings when I don't want to reach for a full-length parka, but still want a jacket that's going to keep me warm (just note that the Wunder Puff uses down, not a down alternative). The thoughtful details like storm cuffs and mini pockets inside the larger pockets make this a functional piece of outerwear too.

My one complaint about this jacket is that it hits at the top of my hips, which isn't my favourite. I'd prefer a few more inches of length to add some more bum coverage, but I do still think this jacket is a solid option for days when I'm not spending too much time outdoors.

Lululemon's Wunder Puff Jacket is ideal for Canada's warmer winter climates or late fall weather. 

  • Detachable hood
  • Insulated, fuzzy pockets
  • Built-in neck shield
  • Hood snaps can easily detach
  • Not suited for extreme cold

To be honest, Lululemon's Wunder Puff Jacket is equal parts hit and miss for me. In the "hit" category, the jacket has a beautiful, buttery soft exterior and cozy pocket linings for when you're without gloves. I'm a big fan of detachable hoods on winter coats, and the Wunder Puff hood snaps on easily and without bother.

That said, I split my winters between Ontario (cold) and Alberta (extremely cold), and the jacket's 600-fill-power goose-down insulation doesn't cut it for me. If you live in one of Canada's warmer cities, the Wunder Puff Jacket is an excellent option for middle-of-the-road warmth. However, if you're expecting temperatures -10°C and below, you might be better off with one of Lululemon's parkas instead.

The Wunder Puff Long Jacket comes in six colourways.

  • Cinchable waist
  • Detachable hood
  • Hits mid-calf
  • May overwhelm smaller frames

I've been searching for the perfect long puffer for years — and I'm always left disappointed. The problem with a long puffer is that it can quickly veer into Michelin Man territory, especially if you're on the shorter side like me.

That's why I was so happy to finally put Lululemon's Wunder Puff Long Jacket to the test. The cinchable waist helps create a flattering silhouette and the fleece pockets, detachable hood and two-way zipper are a nice added touch. While some shoppers suggest to size down, I stuck with my true Lululemon size (a 4) and was happy with the fit. While I could have gone down, I prefer a roomier fit so I can layer sweaters. I stuck with classic black, but if I was shopping again I think I would go for Purple Ash or Roasted Brown for something a bit different.

This puffer is stylish, sleek, and in my opinion, absolutely warm enough for a typical winter day if you live somewhere in southern Ontario. However, shorties beware — I'm 5'4" and this jacket falls mid-calf on me. Unless you're looking for an ankle-length coat, this one might dwarf you if you're under 5'2".
