The Amazon winter jacket that’s driving social media wild

It became known as the ‘Upper East side mom coat’ last year after being spotted on scores of women in uptown Manhattan. 

But now the Orolay Women’s Thickened Down Jacket has spread its reach beyond the borders of New York City and is proving to be a winter staple across the country.

Praised for its large pockets, zippers, and stylish choice of colors, the padded parka is being talked about all over social media and has even earned itself a dedicated Instagram account @theamazoncoat.

‘Lots of chatter in the blogosheres about this Amazon coat,’ style and fitness blogger Kelly Berger writes on an Instagram photo showing her in the jacket. ‘So, I had to find out for myself…. I didn’t believe it but, its actually awesome.’ 

On her blog, the Baltimore-based fitness instructor also raves about the price, which at a purse-friendly $139.99 is far more affordable than other New York favorites such as Montcler and Canada Goose that set shoppers back several hundred dollars. 

Dallas-based blogger Being Bridget was similarly impressed. ‘You can stop looking for the perfect winter jacket – bc I’ve just found it for you,’ she writes in an Instagram post showing her wearing the black version of the coat. ‘SO dang warm. Would make the best ski jacket too!’
