Last winter, while everyone was bemoaning the freezing cold weather, a few wise shoppers were whispering about a certain Amazon coat. With its $120 price tag, figure flattering silhouette and the standard Prime two-day shipping, the Orolay Thickened Down Jacket quickly became the go-to for many Upper East Siders. And, as winter droned on, the need to refer to it by its proper name dissipated and everyone began to succinctly refer to it as “The Amazon Coat.” Now, in the throes of summer, the illustrious coat is majorly on sale and ready to take Prime Day by storm.
Yep, thanks to Amazon Prime Day, prime members can enjoy 40 percent off and snag this best-seller for a cool $84 (the price change will reflect upon checkout).
If you’re yet to come across “the” coat, it’s a very oversized Balenciaga-looking piece with utilitarian-esque zipper features. The quilted down number has a high-low hem with convenient zippers on the side to accommodate heavy layering. It also has an it’s-so-cold-I-can’t-feel-my-ears-friendly sherpa-lined hood. It’s windproof. It’s waterproof. It comes in five different colors (army green, beige, black, gray and navy) and it’s made of white duck down and feathers.
As one PureWow editor says, the coat is, “my greatest pride and my greatest shame.” Why? Well, basically everyone already owns it and knows it’s from Amazon, but it’s actually, like, cute.
If you’re into planning ahead and are ready to jump on “The Amazon Coat” bandwagon, snag your own today before Prime Day ends. The nearly 7,000 customer reviews don’t lie. It’s a great bang for your buck.
