It’s hard for a puffer coat to stand out. Usually worn strictly out of cold-weather necessity rather than to enhance any look, a puffer coat is rarely considered the focal point of a high-fashion outfit. But that all changed with Amazon’s “viral jacket,” which seemed to be the first pillowy garment to assert that a winter coat can, in fact, be cool.

If you haven’t yet caved and bought your own Orolay coat, you’ll be happy you waited: We found a nearly identical version that’s on sale for even less than the Amazon best-seller. When regularly priced, the Sam Edelman Faux Shearling Lined Puffer Coat actually costs just a dollar less than the Orolay version, but the winter staple is currently marked down by 30 percent at Nordstrom.

You can shop the cozy jacket in five colors — black, marigold, navy, olive, and white — that reviewers say is lightweight yet super warm. In case you get overheated moving from the frigid outdoors to heat-blasting indoors, the Sam Edelman puffer coat, like the Orolay, has zipped side vents that provide some relief as well as increased freedom of movement. While customers recommend sizing down because of the coat’s oversized structure, they love that it’s roomy enough to layer the thick pieces one tends to need in the winter underneath.

Even before the jacket was on sale, shoppers said, “For the price, this is for sure a keeper” — so now at under $100, it seems like you really can’t go wrong picking one up.
