Choosing a puffy jacket can be difficult when trying to maintain a strict budget, this is where Amazon, with their Amazon Essentials Lightweight Hooded Puffy Jacket, has built a quality jacket I included in my Lighterpack Gear for 2019! This men's lightweight hooded jacket is a hiker's best friend to get warm and to keep up your core temperature along with maintaining a friendly status with your wallet.
Here’s a rundown of what we’ll provide in this Amazon Essentials Men's Lightweight Hooded Puffy Jacket review:
Sound good? Let’s get started!
Excellent Packing Puffer Coat - Not too puffy. Not too shiny. Washes well and dries quickly.
Zippered Pockets - Many people love to have zippered pockets and they aren't normally on many puffy jackets, this one is an exception!
Layers Easily - This jacket is perfectly setup to allow for an additional layering setup should you require it if going into very cold areas.
Separate Storage Bag - The jacket doesn't store within its own pocket, you have to carry a bag which is used for storage.
No Draw Strings On Hood - This was one of the flaws people pointed out about this puffy jacket.
Amazon Essentials is focused on creating affordable, high-quality, and long-lasting everyday clothing you can rely on. Their line of men’s must-haves includes polo shirts, chino pants, classic-fit shorts, casual button-downs, and crew-neck tees.
They offer consistent sizing takes the guesswork out of shopping, and each piece is put to the test to maintain the highest standards in quality and comfort.
Looking at the features and benefits is great, but taking a look at what real-and-actual customers have to say about a product offers a deeper dive of insight. Here we’ve curated reviews that reflect the Amazon Essentials Lightweight Hooded Puffy Jacket, providing feedback from product users and reviewers on independent review sites as well as on Amazon.
I was unable to find any current reviews outside of the YouTube video above and this post once up. If you find any please contact me!
Excellent packable puffer coat. Not too puffy. Not too shiny. Washes well and dries quickly. Zippered pockets are a plus. Amazon Essentials jacket is $15 cheaper than Old Navy mens’ packable puffer, which lacks a hood!
Only downside is that you have to store/keep the mini bag somewhere vs. packing into a self-pocket. But I guess that’s more of a personal preference than a flaw.
Plenty warm and the wind doesn't cut through it and not bulky. I have been wearing it every night for two weeks delivering pizza in January. So far its perfect however I would like draw strings on the hood. It does not have a way to pull the hood tight. The coat zipped fully is what holds the hood on. Works OK but pull strings would be better. This my first review ever! I look at reviews a lot so I thought its about time. Very good coat in first two weeks.
If, like myself, you are on a budget due to outside circumstances then this puffy jacket from Amazon Essentials is a home run. Most Puffy jackets will come in at $150+ and can easily cost $300! I was looking for a nice warm puffy for the end of the day or for when temperature was a concern to help bolster my body.
This is perfect fit for those who are wanting an Ultralight or lightweight and light cost jacket, it is now my go to jacket for the Texas nights! I am preparing for the AT and/or PCT next year and this was added to the testing and preparation, so far it has not let me down!
