plumífero o chaqueta de plumas


Explanation:
En España se les llama plumíferos, chaquetas de plumas o, sencillamente, "plumis" o "plumas", dependiendo de la audiencia. Te dejo un par de URL en los que se habla, indistintamente, de las dos cosas.

Un cordial saludo,

P.

anorak de pluma de oca


Explanation:
just to differentiate between the poliester "plumíferos" and this high quality one where goose-down needs to be mentioned somehow. otherwise they could have said "parka", etc.

In the wild, says Darwin, animals will vary (genetically) in each character, and the animals with the fittest (genetic) characteristics will produce more and better offspring than those that go around tearing the arms off goose-down jackets.

chaquetas de plumón de ganzo, o simplemente "de plumón"


Explanation:
Anorak es muy local. No se usa en todo Latinoamérica. Chaqueta es español más genérico y se comprende en cualquier parte. Puede decirse "chaquetas de invierno....etc."
Cuando se tiene que hacer traducción para l8 países de habla hispana, es bueno usar español genérico y evitar los localismos.

chamarra con relleno de pluma de ganso


Explanation:
También se podría decir simplemente chammara de pluma de ganso con lo que sería perfectamente entendible.

ejemplo: Edredón de pluma (pato, ganso, etc.)

Pienso que depende mucho del país para el que estás traduciendo, ya que plumón por ejemplo en México es un marcador grueso y plumífera tampoco se usa.
