'All it lacks is a Patagonia label': Get this top-rated lookalike puffer for just $27

Dropping temperatures, wind chill, increased rainfall and snow are starting to make the simple act of getting dressed a little bit confusing.

This top-rated jacket might look familiar. The fitted coat has been compared to Patagonia’s Down Sweater or L.L. Bean’s Primaloft Packaway Jacket, two iconic yet higher-priced options famous for in-between weather. Take it from this shopper: 'All it lacks is a Patagonia label. Very nice inexpensive warm jacket. I can wear it hiking and in climates that aren’t too cold. But I also have worn it on very cold days. Very versatile."

The Amazon Essentials Packable Puffer Jacket much more affordable yet just as satisfying. It's a lightweight yet warm outer layer that’s appropriate for plenty of climates and “perfect for unpredictable weather,” as one of 10,000 five-star fans put it. The insulated coat is warm and toasty but light as a feather, and it’s even waterproof, so getting caught in a sudden shower is no biggie — especially since it comes with a built-in hood.

“I love this jacket so much! There's no need to spend more on other ‘name brand’ jackets,” wrote one five-star reviewer. “This has everything you would want in a jacket: warm, fits well and the most important of looks good on you!”

Another reviewer who complained of “non-stop rain this winter in Tennessee” claims the beloved Amazon Essentials coat has been mistaken for a similar—yet more expensive (and hoodless!) option—the Eddie Bauer Women's CirrusLite Down Jacket.

“Everyone thinks it's from Eddie Bauer but the price is so much more reasonable,” says the fan. “I have several winter jackets but none that are both lightweight and warm that has a hood.”

The Amazon Essentials Packable Puffer Jacket has contoured seams so it lies flat against your body with no bulk, not only blocking wind but preventing it from getting inside; elasticized wrist cuffs help too. The coat zips all the way up to your chin and even has zippered pockets to keep your phone, wallet or a pair of gloves safe and dry.

Right now it’s available in 14 colors and patterns—including black, charcoal, olive, even camo and bright yellow.

The Amazon Essentials Packable Puffer Jacket is designed to be easily stuffed into a tote bag, so you can bring it along with you just in case you get chilly. It’s so light, you’ll barely notice you’re carrying it—and it’s versatile enough to be a standalone jacket or even an extra layer.

“This coat is so incredibly warm that I’ve worn it out walking in below freezing temperatures and have not felt a bit uncomfortable,” wrote one happy shopper in a colder climate. “Couple it with a good pair of leggings under your trousers, a good pair of snow boots, and something to cover your nose/face and you’re good to go.”

“This is my go-to jacket in almost any weather. I take it backpacking as it is lightweight and has a small stuff sack,” wrote another shopper. “It's light enough for mild days and you can layer it for cool temperatures.”

One budget-conscious customer cut straight to the chase. “Forget overpriced puffer jackets!,” said the shopper, adding that the Amazon Essentials Packable Puffer Jacket “fits like a glove and gets lots of compliments!”

Grab the machine-washable Amazon Essentials Packable Puffer Jacket — and never worry again about what you’re going to wear when you walk out the door.

Stay cute and cozy without all the bulk in this puffer. Choose from 15 different colors.
