'Kept me so warm on my ski trip': This top-rated men's coat is a cool $50 — that's nearly 45% off

We're inching toward late January, and the winds of winter are blowing all across the country. If you're not prepared with the proper cold-weather gear, you'll have an unpleasant time shoveling your car out of the driveway or even taking a short walk to the mailbox. Luckily, Amazon's fan-favorite OTU Men's Waterproof Ski Jacket is on mega sale right now. It's only $50 — almost 45% off! — so you can nab one at a steep markdown and keep warm and dry no matter what the weather decides to do.

Waterproof and windproof, this lightweight but cozy-as-heck jacket will keep you prepared for anything this winter.

Why is this a good deal?

At nearly 45% off in Black — and nearly 40% off in several other colors — the $50 OTU Men's Waterproof Ski Jacket is a fabulous buy, especially compared to big-brand ski jackets, which can easily go for $150 or much more. Though the price has increased slightly in the last few weeks (no doubt due to the current cold snap), $50-$55 is still an incredibly reasonable price to pay for quality winter protection.

Why do I need this?

The OTU Men's Waterproof Ski Jacket is waterproof and windproof, which means you'll be able to stand up to the elements for as long as you're outside. Adjustable Velcro cuffs block snow and wind from entering the sleeves, keeping you warm and comfortable, and the multiple inner and outer pockets mean that you'll always have a place to stash your phone, keys, gloves and whatnot.

Thanks to that reduced airflow, the jacket has great heat retention, and its soft plush lining ensures you stay toasty. Plus, it comes in stylish colors like Black, Army Green, Dark Blue and more — all on sale at varying prices.

What reviewers say

More than 1,800 Amazon reviewers rave about how much they love this jacket, delivering a decisive five stars.

"Excellent product!" one reviewer raved. "My wife and I are headed from Phoenix to New York City. ... You may imagine that, living in the desert, we don't have a wealth of cold-weather clothes, and I was in dire need of a good warm coat. This looked like it would fit the bill and the price was great, so I took the plunge. Wow, am I ever pleasantly surprised. This is a 'mid-weight' coat (think Mama Bear), but once I had it on, there was no doubt it was going to do the job. ... Bottom line, a really well-made, great, comfortable coat for a great price!"

Other reviewers are impressed by its waterproofing prowess. "We went snowboarding in the rain on New Year's and the inside of the jacket remained dry. I don’t know what else would speak volumes for the quality of this jacket," shared this chill (but not chilly) Amazon shopper.

"Great coat and can get very warm. Also works well in the rain," agreed another.

Big praise comes from shoppers who were surprised by the quality, considering the incredibly reasonable price. "This jacket was awesome. Kept me so warm on my ski trip. I noticed no difference in this jacket and my other jacket that I paid $200 for," marveled a five-star reviewer.

Another added, "This was a great purchase for the price. I've seen similar coats for way more than this one on other sites."

At just $5 more, you can snap up this ski jacket in a variety of other shades, including this sharp blue.
