Spending upwards of $500 on a name brand jacket isn’t a reality for most, so there’s nothing better than discovering a really epic dupe.
The jacket in question is Amazon’s No.1 best-selling men’s puffer. Not only is it totally waterproof but tons of shoppers have pointed out that it rivals top brands like North Face and Columbia.
“These jackets are great puffers and easily compete with North Face and Columbia for style and quality but beat them on price. Very comfortable jacket for camping and hiking,” one five-star reviewer wrote.
The best part? The jacket entirely fits into the included carrying bag with drawstring closure making it the perfect piece of outerwear when traveling.
Another shopper explained, “After comparing several of the recognizable brands, (like Patagonia, LL Bean, North Face and Eddie Bauer), I opted for the Amazon Essentials jacket. I wanted a weatherproof packable jacket to keep in [my] truck in case of inclement weather. I have been overly impressed with this jacket. It is warm, waterproof and the fit is superb…”
It’s also worth noting that some customers pointed out the fit runs big and recommended sizing down. “I purchased a large, and found it to fit more like an XL. Having since replaced it with a medium, it fits much better.”
With nearly 4,000 reviews and a 4.5-star rating, the jacket is available in over 10 different colors — including black, camel, red, blue and camo print. Plus, the packable coat ranges in sizes from XS to XXL. And at just under $40, you really can’t beat it.
