A few years ago, we created A Guide to Insulated Winter Jackets That Are Not Made With Down. Winter coats and jackets can be filled with down which is made from animal feathers and many have hoods lined with fur. Fortunately, there are plenty of jackets without animal materials that you can buy to avoid contributing to the cruel industries that use animal-derived materials. To help you shop for cruelty-free alternatives, we’re bringing you an updated 2018 list of warm and stylish vegan-friendly winter jackets for both women and men. These jackets are all vegan-friendly and available on Amazon.
1. Alpine North Women’s Vegan Down Parka Winter Jacket
Alpine North Women’s Vegan Down Parka Winter Jacket is made with polyester, cotton and 100 percent vegan down insulation. The price is $119.
Sandra says, “Beautiful, details on cuffs and around neck very nice. The cuffs are heavy, quality knit and have a thumb hole so you can slide them down over your hands if you wish. The coat itself is a very nice fabric, it has a high end look to it especially with the details being so perfectly done. Also, big, easy glide zipper. Hood is removable.
I did think it was down filled, it is a synthetic so a bit heavier and puffier that I expected, but overall a beautiful coat.”
2. YOU.U. Classic Women Water Resistant Parka With Faux Fur Hood Trim
About their Classic Women Water Resistant Parka, YOU.U says, “As a real vegan coat, we use microfiber as filling instead of down and faux fur trim on the hood. The faux fur has genuine simulation and it is fluffy, soft as real fur.” The price is $79.99.
Graft says, “I love this coat! Great quality for an affordable price. This coat is extremely warm & water resistance. I needed something to take the dog out in and I can layer easily and stay super warm. The fur on the good is exceptional quality!”
3. Tommy Hilfiger Women’s Short Down Alternative Jacket

Sara says, “Love this coat!! Its beautiful and it fits perfectly…I got it in a size bigger than what I normally wear to fit a hoodie under it not for added warmth but because I love hoodies! It is warm and is keeping the cold Wisconsin wind out right now! I am going to recommend this to everyone I know as like I said its a beautiful coat and warm!”
5. Wantdo Women’s Winter Thicken Jacket Cotton Coat
An Amazon reviewer says, ” I’m picky about my winter coat and I’m also skeptical about ordering online buy before you try is not my thing, but this was worth it!!!! The outside texture is nice it’s not a silky shiny material which always feels juvenile to me and the inside fabric is that fuzzy fake sheep feel. I love it so hope you will too if you get it.”
6. Sportoli Women’s Midlength Quilted Trim Down Alternative Plush Lined Puffer Coat
An Amazon customer says, “The Sportoli mid length jacket is warm and comfy. The upper part of the jacket is lined with a soft and warm fleece for extra warmth. I wore the jacket out in blustery weather and I was very comfortable. The pockets are lined with the same soft cozy fleece. For being a lightweight jacket it is very warm. The hood easily zips on and off and is also lined with soft fleece. I bought the Burgundy colored jacket it is quite beautiful”
7. Beyove Women Winter Coats Military Hooded Warm Faux Fur Lined
Ainee says, “I bought this jacket for the cold for a trip to Utah. The hood is lined with fleece, so that was a great surprise. The jacket is very warm with room to wear a few layers below. The jacket looks great and is flattering. I am very happy with the purchase.”
An Amazon customer says, “Such a comfy oversized sherpa like coat! Got so many compliments. The fur sheds initially. I threw it in the wash and dryer and that took care of it.”
9. CAMEL CROWN Waterproof Rain Jacket Hooded Windbreaker Windproof Rain Coat for Outdoor Hiking Traveling

It also have strap in front which protects air to come in. Look of this jacket is very smart. In all I liked this jacket too much and I am going to buy this jacket for my sister also.”
10. Steve Madden Women’s Long Chevron Quilted Outerwear Jacket
Barbara says, “If you are looking for a down-alternative that is actually warm, this is it. The lining is fleece and extends to the wrists to keep drafts out. The pockets are also fleece lined. There is a filled neck piece that snaps, so even if you don’t have a hat, scarf, or gloves, when all snapped with the hood up and hands in pockets, you’re super warm! The color is beautiful.”
