Stylish people tend to have a soft spot for the sherpa jacket. It's just one of those things. And it's easy to see why: Sherpa is a fabric typically made out of a heavily piled polyester, the type that gives the material its distinctive fluffy look. The overall effect is similar to real wool, though significantly less bulky. (It's also cheaper to produce.) Shearling is the real deal, and sometimes sherpa stuff is just branded a thick fleece.
But a sherpa by any other name would indeed taste so sweet, and that rings true for jackets of every shape. A sherpa-lined trucker jacket is a classic, but these days you can scoop a sherpa-lined anything. A flannel or glorified hoodie? Yes and yes. There are button-ups, pullovers, and everything in between.
These 15 span the range of what's available right now. If you're testing out the waters of the sherpa game, let us lend you a hand. An easy choice for this season is a sherpa shirt jacket, which has a safe, familiar shape, but is done up in the soft fabric. L.L. Bean makes a perennially popular sherpa zip-up, while Alo Yoga has a puffier take on the material. Start your sherpa journey here.

Windproof Outer Fleece Jacket
When on the hunt for well-priced outerwear, it's Uniqlo or bust. This sherpa is warm, of course, but it's also windproof for extra protection.

Another great piece to double as a base layer: this Polartec sherpa. It's warm on its own, but it's also a great option for layering days.
Morrow Sherpa Jacket
Vuori makes a more low-key sherpa jacket that's great for wearing to and from the gym. It also makes for a great base layer come ski season.
