    Here's what my colleague, Maitland, has to say about this beloved jacket:

    "I have spent a couple years in the city without a 'real' puffy coat — I usually buy (warm!) fashionable coats and just hide in a Columbia cold-weather rain jacket if the weather gets really bad. But I've wanted this Orolay down coat (often called THE Amazon coat) for a while so when it went 30% off on Prime Day, I snagged the chance to get it. It's weirdly fashionable (like...a lot of people in New York own this jacket) and WOW it's incredibly warm. While it doesn't get *that* that cold in New York City (teens and 20s is about how cold it gets, barring a polar vortex — which isn't bad to someone who lived in Minnesota for five years) — we New Yorkers spend a LOT of time outside in the winter. When you walk to the train, wait on the freezing platform, walk to the grocery store etc. it's more time than usual out in the cold — and let me tell you the wind through the buildings and chill off the concrete can be BRUTAL. I love to walk about four miles home from work when I have the time — even in the winter — and I know this will keep me cozy every step of the way.

    This coat HAS IT ALL! It's puffy and super-insulated but not *giant* and covers the butt (very key when you're wearing thin leggings on the bottom all winter — the wind goes right through 'em). The VERY generously sized hood has a sherpa lining for extra toastiness. I very rarely, if ever, find jackets with hoods that actually go all the way over my head (and hair) to shelter my face from the elements, so that's a HUGE PLUS for me. It has tons and tons of pockets — zipper pockets to stash stuff in so you don't need a purse, plus size open pockets to keep your hands toasty on a walk. And it's just really darn cute!

    I wanted an oversized look, so for reference, I wear a size 2 in most things and I got the small. To me, it's perfect! I've taken it for a spin on unusually cold November days (windchill in the teens), on post-snow mornings, and I know it's going to keep me super warm, no matter how the freezing New York winds blow." —Maitland Quitmeyer

    Get it from Amazon for $149.99+ (available in sizes XXS–5XL, two black options, and 11 other colors).

    5. A gorgeous Blanknyc black puffer jacket complete with a cropped silhouette exuding high-end runway vibes. Plus, it's SO shiny. So much gloss, so little time.

    This extra glossy black puffer jacket features a cropped silhouette that makes it look like it cost *at least* five times more. Plus, this little number will effortlessly have all your 'fits looking like they were put together by a professional stylist.

    Get it from Blanknyc for $128 (available in sizes XS–L).

    6. A nifty Topshop convertible puffer jacket ideal for days when it's freezing in the morning but warms up to a crisp temp in the afternoon. Just zip the sleeves off and you're good to go! No outfit change needed.

    Promising review: "Very pleased after receiving it. The jacket itself is so heavy and of high quality, but it does not add too much weight after putting it on.

    Promising review: "I bought this coat to bring with me on a road trip in Iceland. It worked great! It's warm without being bulky. The hood stayed up despite wind. Best part: It packs down so well in the little bag that it comes with! I was able to stuff the bag inside one of my hiking boots, which meant it took up virtually no space when I packed for our flight." —Laura Grace

    Promising review: "LOVE IT! This jacket is perfect if you're a cold person like me who loves to be warm, but not overly bundled up to the point where you can't move! I think it will be great for pre-winter, like right before the harsh winter cold starts, and it's a great addition to wear inside if it's extra cold and then another coat on top. It's amazingly thin, yet warm! It feels like a feather when you're holding it. And it's very true to size. I am grateful for this buy!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $77.40+ (available in sizes XS–3X with petite options).

    19. A lightweight Columbia hooded jacket with synthetic down insulation and a patented heat-reflective lining that goes to great ~lengths~ to keep you as warm as possible.

    Promising review: "Literally the PERFECT coat! I ordered so many before I found this and it puts all of them to shame! So worth the cost. It was perfect for a February trip to NYC, and to be used all winter in Utah for many years to come! I feel so cute in it! It’s warm enough to be perfect for freezing temps with layers, but light enough that you can put it on for a breezy day! The hood is cut SO WELL. Like it’s kind of square-ish, which makes it so your visibility is perfect. And the hood inside is soft, which is nice too! I love the length. It’s longer than my last coat, but it has a reverse zipper at the bottom so you can unzip the bottom if you need the movement. It is sculpted so your body does have form even with the little puff. It also has thumb holes, which I only use half the time, and the neck zips up really high for added protection when it’s extra cold. You’ll LOVE it!!!" —Clarmee

    Get it from Amazon for $120+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 24 other colors, including some in sizes 1X–3X).

    Plus, even more stylish coats that'll always keep you warm.

    21. A water-repellent Nike "Therma-FIT" black puffer jacket filled with duck down insulation best worn with a pair of stylish sneakers. Plus, you'll be so grateful for this on windy days when you'd rather tuck half your face into your collar!
