Getting a great dupe is always a winner.

But some are better than others, and Aussies are divided over the quality of some of the dupes of the cosy cult buy Oodie.

"I have a $29 Reject Shop knock-off and it is EXACTLY the same as the Oodie brand," reveals one customer on the bargain hunter Facebook page, Markdown Addicts Australia.

"I'd be very disappointed if I'd paid more than $40 for it."

Another member agrees: "I have a Bonds reversible oodie and it’s so much nicer & thicker," she writes.

"That that was like $50 on sale."

"I've got an genuine oodie brand and Cotton On. And I agree the cotton on brand is just the same personally," someone else shared.

However, some people believe you can't go past the quality of the original Oodie.

"I found the Oodie fabric to be a higher quality and thicker fleece and sherpa, and all the lining seams are enclosed, including the cuff seams.

"So basically you get what you pay for," says one fan.

"The Oodie is def warmer and a better buy," agreed another.
