The Famed Amazon Coat Is 40 Percent Off Today

Four years ago, this Orolay coat took the Upper East Side by storm. The unassuming army-green duck-down puffer was spotted at the 92nd Street Y preschool, an 83rd Street SoulCycle, and the cult-favorite drugstore C.O. Bigelow. We dubbed it the “Amazon coat,” and the craze only intensified.

Back then, the humble puffer was just under $100. But it quickly became a mainstream hit with our readers, racking up over 23,000 reviews, and still ranks in the top-five best-selling women’s down jackets on Amazon nearly four years later. As the Orolay’s popularity increased, so did the price. It went up to $140 two years after we wrote about it, and it currently retails for $160. Fortunately, today, as part of Amazon’s October Prime Day Sale, you can snag the original army-green down coat for just $89, even cheaper than it was when we first spotted it.

The one that started it all. It remains popular because it’s a good coat, perfect for the snowy, blustery weather.

This update to the original has a warm faux-fur-lined hood and is slightly over $100.

We also found an even cozier, sherpa-trimmed alternative (stock is running low in this apple-cinnamon colorway).
