Hi Paul! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're sorry to hear the jacket fit a bit small. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
The color and style is fine. The faux wool is horribly uncomfortable. As soon as it hit my skin it was extremely itchy. It's not soft at all. Wearing the wool on the outside is fine and fits much better, but if you turn it inside out where the wool is on the inside, it gets tighter and itchy. I wanted to like this product a lot. I own the nano... Read More puff in XL size and it fits me better than this in XXL size wool side. Runs small.

Great product love it . If I was in the middle of nowhere in an emergency situation I can trust this jacket to protect me against the cold and wind, yes there are better options but if this is what you had in your car or on you it will definitely work.

Warm & Stylish
I love the reversible feature which makes the fleece pair with almost any outfit. Its warm and heavy which is great if its my only layer. The only drawback would be that its difficult to fit underneath a coat (when skiing for instance) leading me to use older products which is a bit of a bummer.
2 for 1
I really like this coat. I've had it for a couple months now and it's done well so far in Wisconsin winter. I've been comfortable in walks below zero and I've worn it in a lot of different situations. I wish the pockets had a more cozy lining, but I've usually got gloves on when I'm wearing it so not a big deal.
comfy and very cozy!
I've been looking for a new mid-coat to have for the season, and this fit so well! It's much warmer than I've expected it to be and it's very cozy, sometimes going the whole work day with this on. My only complaint is the cuffs could be more loosened, they make it hard to have a watch on, but it's only a minor complaint. Lo... Read Moreve the rest of it!
I never intended to use both sides if this reversible jacket. I wanted to use the fleece side for the interior, but the jacket seems to be a size smaller when you do that. When wearing the fleece on the outside it fits like a size larger. The fleece looks cheap. I appreciate what Patagonia is trying to do with recycling, but the fleece side is not ... Read Moresoft. Its coarse, sharp, and a bit itchy. I would only recommend this as a back up jacket in your car in case of emergency.

Hi Bradley! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear about the disappointment with the fleece.

I like it!
I wrote this because I saw so many folks kinda' dissing this jacket. The woolyester side has a bit of a wool itch to it at first, but after a bit of wearing I am having no problem at all. I really like it, I always wear medium in Patagonia jackets and that is the same with this (5'10"/155lbs). Both sides are no problem at all in my o... Read Morepinion. I have an ancient Pile Glisade reversible that this is related to and I understand the itchy comments, but I also agree with the idea that after a bit of wearing the fleece side is not any bother at all. About the only thing I'd add is to have put zippers on the side pockets, both sides. That would allow me to keep items, wallet, phones, etc. without worrying they might slip out - don't change the pocket size though as the size is great. Cowabunga, Tom
Very nice jacket, sizing is a bummer for me
I ordered this jacket previously in XL but reluctantly returned it because the sizing. With the wool lining facing outwards and the nylon facing in, it fit perfectly. However, with the wool lining inwards it felt like a size too small, it was TIGHT! I have larger than normal chest and shoulders though, an avg build guy probably doesnt run into this... Read More problem nearly as much. The furry lining facing inwards is what makes this jacket VERY warm. Fuzzy side out for warmer temps. I re-ordered this jacket again in XL and XXL. Fuzzy side inwards with XXL is perfect and fuzzy side out is too big. While it is reversible, seems I have a choice to make on which way I want to wear the jacket to decide which size to keep. This is a super nice choice for winter weather
This jacket has the itchiest lining I've ever felt from Patagonia. I was hoping the sherpa would be like any other other sherpa products they have. But something is off about it. I got this jacket in two different colors to try on. And both of them are uncomfortable on the skin. The whole point is to have a reversible jacket. But the sherpa li...

Thank you for this review, Peter. A number of customers find the jacket becomes more comfortable with repeated wearings. If this doesn't happen for you, please know we'll be happy to help you [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it.
Not a good-looking jacket
This jacket fit well, but it was kind of ugly. The fleece side looked cheap and was very itchy to the skin. It reminded of shaggy, industrial carpet form the 70s. The nylon side looked decent, but the way it was stitched, I could foresee these stitches getting caught and pulling out due to normal wear and tear. There should've been more pocket...

Warm - Weird Sizing
This jacket has a solid warmth to it, also breathes well w/ the fleece turned inward, slightly itchy, but not overly so. The neck zips up comfortably and has great coverage up to alamos my ears, a massive plus considering it has no hood. The techie face i rarely use on the inside because its warmer having the fleece turned in, but for being flexibl... Read Moree in movement and ease of putting on or taking off the jacket, the reversible is a great feature to have. The sizing is pretty strange, ordered a size up from my usual - Medium- and got a Large instead (am 5ft 9 in tall and weigh 130 Lb). The Large has sleeves barely long enough and is equal to many other Medium jackets and shirts from Patagonia. The torso is pretty massive and will have to hem it down a bit to attain the proper fit. Its a really warm jacket, has solid design and is comfortable and easy wearing. Please be sure to order a size up, because it runs small in all but torso diameter. Thanks guys!
Great look, very itchy
I really wanted to make this jacket work since it looks great, but I couldn't get passed how itchy it is. I couldn't wear it with a short sleeve because it bothered my arms too much.

We appreciate your feedback on all aspects of this jacket and we're sorry it didn't work for you. It sounds like the recycled polyester and wool blend fabric was irritating. Please let us know if you need any help to return it. Thanks for the review, Michael!
Very itchy and scratchy.
This jacket came in a beautiful blue color. I was drawn to it because its reversible. Although the brown woolyester side was incredibly itchy. Itchier than other products Ive bought with the same fabric. Its unbearable to wear for over half an hour. My arms turn slightly red. Ive washed the jacket twice and its still itchy. I saw online that if I h... Read Moreand wash it in conditioner and fabric softener that it will be better. But thats a lot of extra effort for a NEW jacket. I expected to just be able to comfortably wear the jacket right away and Im disappointed that that is not the case. Very disappointed in how itchy this product is. Ive never had this type of quality issue with any Patagonia product before.

Hi Katherine, thank you for submitting this review. We're so sorry to hear you experienced this kind of reaction! We haven't been hearing about other customers having this experience. In general we don't recommend using fabric softener on our products as it makes the fabric less breathable. Nevertheless, we want you to be happy with everything you get from us, so we will contact you about options for returning this jacket.
First, I thought by ordering a large it might be a bit small on me. This not only fits it has a bit of room for layering. The cut of Patagonia clothing is different from what I'm used to, I'm getting use to the difference. The only additional feature I would add would be a chest pocket on the other side. It's a great addition to fall... Read More n winter.
Great all-purpose jacket
I absolutely love this jacket. It's comfortable, warm, versatile, and the borealis colour-way has a nice retro look. I use it as both a casual everyday sweater and warm under-layer for colder days. No complaints -- I'll be taking it with me wherever I go.
Jacket fits well, but the sleeves are too small and I have average sized arms.

This review is based on
This review is based on a test fit while in my house. I have not worn it out in the field. First and foremost, this jacket is a very heavily insulated garment best suited for wearing post-activity such as walking home during winter in Wisconsin after a game of hockey or tending a late-night fire on a single-digit night. I would only wear this produ... Read Morect while working, such as collecting wood, if the temperatures were sub-zero. For this reason, I will probably be wearing some combination of base layer(s) when donning this product. That is the problem. While the product description states it is reversible I was uncomfortable wearing this jacket with the fuzz on the inside and over a button-down work shirt. Too tight a fit! Wearing it over a flannel shirt would be impossible. However, the fit is much looser if the slick side is worn on the inside. I vote no on it being reversible! The material and construction of the garment are as expected of Patagonia, excellent. I will probably store the jacket in my truck to use in the event of a significant delay and related bivy. Perfect use!
Wears like a hay fever
The Sherpa lining is scratchy, ornery, and everlasting. It feels like you had a good lining and then lightly singed the ends before selling it to customers. I would have to wear a long sleeve shirt under this jacket to wear it for any extended amount of time. Also, I couldnt tell from the photos the other side is quilted. Uff-da. Hey, this is true ...

This is by far the warmest and most versatile jacket I have owned, and for someone who rarely, if ever, reviews products, I feel compelled to write this review. If you weigh about 130 lbs on 5'6" frame and have a lean build, this size (Men's XS) fits perfectly with room for a heavy baselayer or a light one and a shirt. The recycled w... Read Moreool felt a little prickly on my arms when I first put it on, but you quickly get used to it and now I don't notice it al all. The warmth and the wind protection is incomparable! I would rate it warmer than my 800 fill down winter jack. It is bulkier, however, and not compressible, so I would think twice before taking it on a long backpacking trip. The reversible feature is great (its like flipping your undies inside out when you are loath to do laundry - just joking!) I have even been complimented on it by my fellow swimmers after a skins dip in the San Francisco Bay. It is definitely pricey and I would be sad if it were stolen, but till then, I'm looking forward to many cozy seasons ahead.
