It’s the only coat you’ll need this season.
My mom’s the queen of sustainable fashion; she’ll wear a piece until the linings are full of holes, buttons are hanging on by a thread, and zipper is off the track. And as quickly as a garment comes undone, she takes it to her sewing machine. The only problem is that she doesn’t know where to draw the line between repairing and retiring, and her puffer coat from 2005 is no exception. During our last virtual shopping trip, I recommended replacing her worn-in coat with this Amazon Essentials Heavyweight Puffer that has over 8,000 five-star ratings. The upgrade has made all the difference in how she’s braving the winter weather.
The puffer coat comes in 14 colors, including white, blue, black, orange, pink, and green, plus sizes XS through 6XL. It features a waterproof outer shell, fully insulated lining, and spacious hoodie. There’s also a zipper and button-front closure, two side-seam pockets, and thumb holes at the cuffs. The length falls just a few inches below the hip and has a straight fit that’s still great for layering over bulkier pieces.

We recently got quite a bit of snow here in Maryland, and my mom was shoveling in what felt like 10-degree weather without being phased; the outer shell is waterproof, so it holds up well in snow and rain. She now refuses to leave the house without her Amazon Essentials coat. Its plush, pillow-like batting, and buttery fleece lining are great for trapping in warm body heat and keeping cold weather out. It’s roomy enough that my mom can comfortably wear chunky sweat sets and sweaters underneath without feeling stuffed.
But what took my mom’s rating from four stars to five was its flattering sage green color and style that reeled in tons of compliments. Her last two winter coats were black, so she says it’s “refreshing” to have “bright color choices to combat against all the gray weather.” She’s now even thinking about going back for the pink or red with Valentine’s Day around the corner. The coat’s only downside? Its soft fleece lining doesn’t continue into the sleeves.
