While there has yet to be a jacket as viral as the Orolay coat, Amazon shoppers seem to have discovered one that’s just as worthy. In just over a month since its release, the Amazon Essentials Heavy-Weight Hooded Puffer Coat has quietly (and quickly) climbed up Amazon’s best-sellers charts. In fact, it knocked the Orolay Thickened Down Jacket out of being the number one best-selling jacket in for the first time in a year during Black Friday — which is no easy feat to achieve.

The Amazon Essentials jacket is in the top five best-selling women’s down jacket category. It comes in seven colors (including black, burgundy, and olive), is available in sizes XS through XXL, and costs $54. The puffer coat is pretty simple, according to reviewers (“It’s not a loud, shiny number”), but that’s why shoppers love it so much. As one customer plainly put it, “What I like: lightweight, very warm, zippers on pockets, inner pocket, no crazy fake fur on hood, covers my butt.” Plus, they say it’s super cozy and warm without making them feel like “a giant marshmallow.”

Shoppers are also pleasantly surprised by the coat’s “bonus features,” like its fleece lining, stretched cuff with a thumbhole, and an inside pocket. “After two days of wearing in pretty cold early winter upstate NY, I really like it a lot. Super comfortable, and a bonus to find that like the coat, the hood is also lined in a nice soft fleece, plus a little inside pocket. Great coat for the money! Very pleased.”

The jacket also comes in a men’s version, and one shopper said her husband ordered it right away after seeing the coat on her. “Hubby asked me ‘how much,’ and was pleasantly surprised when I told him the price,” she wrote. “He wanted one for himself and ordered the men’s version immediately.”

If you need a quality winter jacket and don’t want to break the bank, the Amazon Essentials Heavy-Weight Hooded Puffer Coat might just what you’ve been looking for. But whatever you do, don’t wait to make your purchase — we anticipate it will start selling out in select sizes and colors soon!
