It comes in icy white, soft brown, and jet black.

The OG North Face puffer coat has made quite the comeback, with demand for the classic coat growing 71 percent over the last year. (Even Jennifer Anniston has been spotted in it!) This Thermoball Eco Crop is the latest take on their original design. It has all the classic North Face features, but with a stylish modern silhouette and recycled insulation. Don’t let the "cropped" descriptor scare you away either—the coat hits right at your hips, so your entire torso will still be covered.

It's been all over social media.

Canadian brand Aritzia took off in 2020 thanks to TikTok—and now celebs like Kendall Jenner are big fans. The TNA Super Puff is Aritzia's best-selling jacket, with over 600 reviews. Coming in an astounding 26 colors, it's beloved for its lightweight material, minimalist design, and portability—it can be folded into its own pocket. Note that this puffer is thinner than your average winter coat, but people say it's an ideal outer layer when you’re running errands or out walking on a milder winter day.

"I love this jacket and want it in every color and style," one reviewer says. "The original is the perfect length and it's very warm and comfortable. I had no clue what to expect when to purchasing but it is by far the best winter item I’ve ever purchased!"

"This by far is the warmest coat I've ever owned!" one reviewer gushes. "It is so soft. I've owned expensive, brand-name coats and they don't compare to the warmth of this one."
