Puffer coats come and go, but a great bomber jacket is forever. Transitional pieces can be tough to find (mainly because you never know if they'll actually keep you warm), but you'll want to keep these picks, ahead, at the front of your closet as spring approaches. They're perfect for the 40- to 70-degree jump, and you'll love 'em enough to convince yourself they're acceptable to wear in the summer. Trust.
