Remember The ‘Amazon Jacket’?

Published

on

Nearly four years ago, an unassuming winter coat from a no-name Chinese company went mega-viral. Christened the “Amazon jacket” and covered by pretty much every website that does affiliate sales, the Orolay Women’s Thicket Down Jacket has nearly 20,000 global ratings on Amazon, although its online plaudits pale in comparison to the street cred it gets from being fashionable among the New York City elite. Given the surprising fact that it is still popular all these years later, one half expects it to turn up in the “Sex and the City” reboot. (I’ll let someone who has actually seen the show determine which character is most likely to don it in “And Just Like That…”)

Sadly, its success has allowed Orolay to raise its price. Initially priced at under $100, you now have to pay close to double that much if you are a latecomer to the party.

Orolay Women’s Thickened Down Jacket — $159.99

Considering that its ubiquity among hip circles has resulted in comparisons to the Moncler, which costs 10 times that amount, this is still a small price to pay in the grand scheme of things. How many times in your life will you have the opportunity to wear something with “Balenciaga influence” without taking from your kids’ college funds?

This Rubber Beach Bag Gives You The Space You Need

School is out, the tide is in, and summer 2022 is a-go. Though the beach was one of those places you could still travel to even at the height of COVID restrictions, the repeal of mask mandates and negative testing requirements sure make the whole experience much more appealing.

Of course, going to the beach for the first time in years likely means you are in need of supplies. If that is the case, you came to the right place. In recent weeks, We Know Products has written about a variety of beach gear, including a beach table, vacuum-insulated margarita tumblers, and an American flag beach umbrella. Here is another one to add to the list: rubber tote bags.

Now, longtime WKP readers know we are partial to the clear tote bags with U.S. flag patches. But we have also heard from fans who say they like the Expersion totes for going to games and concerts, but that they also want something a little more spacious for beach trips. This rubber tote fits the bill.

As you can see from the item’s title, this bag is literally “oversized,” so you will have zero problem fitting in everything you need to haul down from your hotel room to the shore.

June is rolling around and the summer season is quickly upon us. I’m a July Cancer, so I’d describe summer as the peak of my entire year. The long days, the longer nights, and scorching heat make keeping up with beauty even harder. I’ve got you covered when it comes to creating a summer survival kit stocked with skincare, makeup, and hair essentials. 

  1. BRONZING SERUM
