Snow blanketing the streets and covering houses is indeed a magical sight to see. And sometimes, we get a little bit more than a light dusting and call it a nor'easter. In the next couple days, parts of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic may experience a major snowstorm that just might bring inches of snow, wind chill temperatures, and ice, according to AccuWeather. And trust: it's going to get cold real fast. That's why there's no better time to buy a jacket than right now. Shoppers who live all over the country have turned to the Columbia Puffect Mid Hooded Jacket that they say keeps them "super warm and cozy," even on days with a -15 degree windchill.

The "winter-approved" Columbia Puffect Mid Hooded Jacket has impressed hundreds of Amazon shoppers who credit it for keeping them warm during serious snowstorms, wind gusts, and cold days with temperatures that dropped to 25 degrees. Insulation built into this full-zip jacket keeps shoppers warm, while the water-resistant exterior acts as a barrier against snow and frigid rain, because nothing is worse than feeling wet and cold while walking outside. That next-level protection is a key reason why Northerners gravitate to this puffer.
"Even when the wind gusted, I was warm! And all I had on underneath was a long-sleeve t-shirt," says a reviewer who wore it while at Lake Erie. "This Puffect coat is everything I'd expect from a company like Columbia. I'm really glad I bought it!"
While many jackets do a good job of keeping your arms and torso warm, the one place they neglect are the legs and the bum area, which is why Amazon reviewers can't quit raving about the Columbia Puffect's length.
"With Michigan cold weather, I was concerned about switching from down," says one reviewer. "Even though it is a little bit heavier than my down coat, it is warmer. I really like the length. It is long enough to cover the booty without being restrictive when sitting. I also like that it fits loose enough to layer for extra winter warmth if needed."
And for anyone who likes to bundle up, take note that this jacket is known for being roomy. That means you can wear multiple layers underneath, still feel comfortable enough to walk around, and even sit without feeling constricted, making it what shoppers call "the perfect puffy coat."
Additionally the zip-up jacket also has a hood and chin guard to keep your face and ears warm when the wind decides to pick up. Plus, the elastic cuffs keep the sleeves comfortably around your wrists to trap in even more warmth. And when you put them in its spacious "yummy" pockets? We're betting you won't need your gloves anymore.
"I never thought I would be online bragging about a winter jacket, but I am," says another shopper who titled their review "Best winter jacket ever!" "Nice looking, warm, roomy, pockets are large. I am actually going to get a couple more in different colors, that's how much I like it."
Upgrade your winter jacket game with the Columbia Puffect Mid Hooded Jacket before it gets too cold — or worse, before the sale ends. All you have to do is choose your favorite color!
