very cozy

Love this jacket makes me feel like a hug from a teddy bear

March 21, 2023

Warm and cozy

I love this coat and wear it on walks daily

March 20, 2023

Fun piece

I absolutely loved everything but the zipper. It is larger than I expected and i have very sensitive skin. I ended up breaking out on my neck, but if your skin is not as delicate as mine do yourself a favor. It has great flannel lined pockets and is fully lined on the inside and the hood fit great, thank you

March 16, 2023

Soft and warm

Im so glad I ordered this fuzzy coat! Its very warm, soft, and has a good heft to it. I expected it to be light like fleece, but its actually a thick winter coat. Its either freezing or hot at my job, so this coat has come in handy several times since I got it. You should buy it!

March 4, 2023

Very warm

Nice material

February 28, 2023

Im tall and lanky

150lb 5 feet 8.5 inches. 32DD bra. Bought this in a small. All my other pantagonia clothing are mediums. Sleeves cover my wrist

February 28, 2023

Returning this one.

The jacket looks frumpy on me. I'm tall and lean with subtler curves. Maybe it would work if you're more curvy? It has excellent craftsmanship. But the cut is like wearing a burlap bag.

February 22, 2023


I like this coat because it doesn't bind around my midsection or the crease of my arms. When I wear this jacket, I feel full flexibility. I do feel like a big brown teddy bear. It is not a sexy coat,but its warm and I am able to move around in it without all of the bulk of one of my heavier coats.

February 21, 2023

Super warm and cute

I live in Southern California so its not super cold here but this coat is perfect for a chilly winter night or my early morning walk. I love that its a longer length, I feel like Im wearing a cozy blanket when I have it on. This will be a winter staple for years to come. Washed great too.

February 18, 2023

Fun piece!

Love the jacket, it's lined very beautifully. However the zipper is large and more rough than I'd expected. I layer with a scarf to curb the metal at my neck. I've used this jacket casually, on trails and in a work environment. Thank you for this warm and cozy design!

February 17, 2023

Cozy parka!

I Absolutely Love my Dusty Mesa Fleece Parka. Its warm, cozy, slightly loose but so adorable , I look like a bear!!!! Love it! Will highly recommend getting one

So Cute

This parka looks great. Well made, perfect fit, nice and warm but not overly warm.

So warm & comfy

This jacket/coat is just what I wanted! Very soft, warm & comfortable from the first day I got it. The fit is perfect and not bulky. Just cozy & perfect !!

February 12, 2023

The color seems darker in

The color seems darker in person. Also the wristbands were uncomfortable due to not being stretchy enough and the material seemed kinda rough. Was expecting more from Patagonia in terms of the fabric choice there.

Bulky and Unflattering

Had high hopes for this jacket after reading other reviews, but it didn't work for me. It's stiff and bulky, and the cuffs just look plain weird. If you are expecting soft and cozy, you will be disappointed.

Great for casual

I really liked the look of this coat. I purchased it mainly for walks. Some people commented on its warmth for cold weather. I struggled with keeping it because the winter weather has been mid 30s. It wasn't as warm as I hoped but I loved the look. It was roomy enough to add layers if I wanted. Ultimately, I ended up returning it and bought a ... Read Morewarmer style. Patagonia has always been my go to brand. Both jackets are well made, sturdy zippers and great styles and colors. I would recommend this jacket for weather above 45. You can layer for sure but the outer material was breathable and the cotton lining helped however wind came through forcing me layer.

I love my coat!

I love my coat!

February 9, 2023

Not for me

I really wanted to like this as the reviews seemed to all be good. It was a good weight but a very boxy fit. Was not flattering at all. If you have any hips at all the Med was snug around my hips. If I had ordered a large it would have been huge on me everywhere else. Needless to say I returned the jacket.

Cozy Casual Coat Is a Winner

I wowed everyone when I wore this coat to my Pilates class. I knew, from previous online reviews, that it was highly rated and snapped it up when it went on sale. It is just enough to wear in the car to and from. The fit is perfect. Love the binding on cuffs, pockets, and hood. One detail is missing: there is no inside pocket for a phone.

February 9, 2023

Unique and flattering

Love the fit with the drawn waist and length of the coat. Really comfortable. Looks great. Warm enough for a winter day in WI.

February 9, 2023

So warm and cozy.

This coat is like a big hug! It is so warm and snuggly. The length is perfect and I use it for walking.

February 5, 2023

Super Warm and Cozy

Bought this to wear at my mountain cabin. In the snow and cold its really worked out great. Keeps me warm but still able to move comfortably.

I am usually a size

I am usually a size 6. I first ordered a S . The fit thru the chest was fine, but thru the hips was a little tighter than I like. I then ordered a M. It was fine thru the hips but too large thru the chest. I sent both back. My experience with Patagonia has been that it often runs small and that the top and bottom do not necessarily correspond.

Warmer than expected!

I love this jacket more than I expected. It is lined which gives it a little extra warmth. Last week I wore it all around NYC & never caught a chill, wearing only a sweatshirt & sweatpants under it.

Much Warmer than Expected

This parks is fantastically warm, much warmer than I expected. I use it almost every day that the temp is below 28-30. Its too warm for me in warmer temps. I love the pockets, the two way zipper, lint cuffs and the length. Great color too, true to the photos.

Great jacket, warm and comfortable. Fit's slightly snug, but great look!

November 19, 2022

Love this jscket

Great jacket for cold morning/evening walks with dogs. The length is perfect and keeps me so warm. This jacket is warmer than I expected and Im very happy with it. I also love the zipper that opens from top and bottom, very convenient.

November 8, 2022

Super comfy

I love a longer jacket in the winter and this jacket length is perfect. Even though it won't replace a puffy a jacket on the coldest winter days (this jacket is not as warm as I expected) it's super comfy, slides on over layers seamlessly, and comes with the quality I expect from Patagonia.

Warm and comfortable

I love this jacket! Its so warm and comfortable, AND really freaking cute.

November 6, 2022

Cozy coat

This coat is warm and comfortable, and the sleeves are nice and long. I often have trouble finding a coat that has long enough sleeves and isn't huge on me. My only complaint is the zipper: it is a little high and even when unzipped it rubs against my neck.

October 20, 2022

Super Warm and Comfy!

I feel like a furry bear in this parka. Very warm and comfy. Could be a bit heavy for some people. I like the weight as this equals warmth. It will suit my needs for temperatures in upper twentys into the fortys to low fiftys. Above this it will be to warm. Not sure yet how it will do in temps 20 deg. or lower. This parka is great for autumn and sp... Read Morering. I plan to get a winter down coat for deep winter. I get cold really fast and need a reliably warm parka.

Very warm

This is a great jacket. Fits perfect! I would highly recommend this jacket.

September 12, 2022

I spent a few weeks

I spent a few weeks debating if I wanted to keep this. I really wanted to like it, but I returned it because the fit on the wrists felt too snug.

May 13, 2022

wrist bands too tight

This is a nice jacket. But the elastic wrist cuffs are so tight that it presses my watch and any bracelets into my skin. I had to return. Otherwise it is comfortable. Such a disappointment. Oh and no zippers on any pockets and no upper or inner pockets for keys and such. I'm 5'5 and 143lbs, medium fit good except the cuffs.

Big comfort

Good product, solid fit, comfy material

March 17, 2022

Great Fall and Spring jacket

Adorable fleece jacket. I love it. Im 5 ft. Tall and 130 pounds and the medium fits me perfectly. Albeit I cant wear anything heavy underneath or it would be a tad tight. Super cute and perfect for cool days.

Great Casual Warm Jacket

Love putting this on early in the morning and later at night when I'm walking the dog. Really comfy and lots of pockets for "dog required" items.

Great coat

I love wearing it casually or to workouts like yoga.

I love this coat! So warm and cozy without feeling too bulky.

February 26, 2022


I love the jacket, super cute and warm. I live in Wisconsin so it can get pretty cold. It is pretty long, but great for my height 510. The only thing is I wish there was a draw string inside jacket to make more form fitting when you want to dress it up:)

February 19, 2022

Wanted to love it

I initially bought a small, but it fit almost too perfect. It fit amazingly on top, but I have hips, so the bottom half was just the slightest bit tight and I hate anything thats even a little snug.

Cozy Comfort

The only thing I dont like about this coat is that its hard to zip up because the fuzzy fabric gets caught in the zipper constantly.

February 10, 2022

Love the length of this coat!

I have many jackets, but I bought this one because of the length. Its perfect for my frame. Many Patagonia coats dont fit me because of my belly, but this one is great with the way it is cut.

February 7, 2022

Like a little bear

I love this coat! Cozy and fuzzy. I generally am a medium due to my chest size but am glad I sized down to a small for this coat. Fits great! I wear it every night to walk the dogs and in the morning to go on a coffee run.

Cozy comfy coat

Very cozy and comfortable casual coat. Its very warm and you could definitely use for outdoor activities. Its definitely not fitted but that is what I like.

Beyond cozy

This jacket is so warm! Perfect for my long walks without feeling bulky. I ordered a medium and can still layer. My daughter says I feel like a teddy bear! Just love this fleece.

Comfy cozy cute

Originally got this in medium for a gift. Fit okay, but arms were large and looked frumpy. I exchanged it for a small and Im much happier. Still can wear a sweatshirt under and zip. For reference I weight 135. wear 34D or DD bra, medium in t shirts, pants 28, dress 6, small shoulders and arms.

Ive been looking at this jacket for a while. Finally got it. My only regret is not getting it sooner. Somehow it keeps me perfectly warm no matter how cold (anywhere from -2F to 50F) it is.

I've been obsessed with all things Patagonia for over 7 years; and have been a solid XS in all products.

I am 5ft3in and 116 lbs - I find this parka to be big in the shoulders and very big in the waist - and there's no way to adjust it because there's no cinch pull. I'm considering getting it a little tailored so it's not so slouchy. It would be a good solution to the size issue if there was a waist cinch, or if it came in an XXS.

A dream

Have you ever ordered something and you were so excited and then you get it and its even better than you imagined? That is this coat!

January 7, 2022

Warm and Awesome

I love this coat! It's super warm--warmer than I imagined. I thought it would be more like a light weight fleece, but was pleasantly surprised that it's lined and very warm (even in 20 degree weather). I love the fit and the longer length.

To be able to layer, I usually buy my jackets in S. But after reading some reviews, I decided to go with XS and dont regret it.

I absolutely love this jacket! I bought it a while ago in an extra large, which is my normal Patagonia size for jackets, but when I got it, it looks like my moms super large jacket. I am now re-ordering it in a smaller size since I have lost some weight and love this jacket enough to re-order!

Great fall jacket

Love this jacket. Its casual but cute enough to wear to work. Its very comfortable. Hood is a great size and comes slightly forward so it covers the front of my face a bit from rain. Length is good. Wish it had an inside pocket, but otherwise love it. I wouldnt trust it for bitter cold weather but its perfect for 30-50s Fall weather.

So cute :)

This jacket is made with recycled polyester. I think it makes a fashion statement while being reasonably environmentally friendly. I mean, Im almost 56 and 118 pounds. It fits just like I had hoped. I like my stuff to have room and Im wearing it with a sweater right now. Amazing. There should be one for even colder weather with a bigger fill. Perfe... Read Morect fall jacket. Love love

Trendsetting, yet practical

I purchased this mainly because I love anything sherpa. This definitely exceeded my expectations because I love the fit and weight of this jacket so much. It's light but yet so comfortable, I feel like I am wearing a blanket :)

Splurge Casual Jacket

This wasa splurge for me as it isn't a necessity by any means. I just wanted a more casual jacket that was a little more snuggly than a puffer and I also thought it would be really nice in the desert and apres ski. I was a little put off by the colors but I eventually chose the taupe one. I normally really like taupe, it looks nice with my ski... Read Moren tone especially when I'm a bit paler. I have a little bit of a tan right now but I often get quite pale so the brown color would not look good, plus it's cute but a little costumesque. I loved the high pile fleece jacket but eventually went with this one because it looks like it will be more versatile with the hoody, long length, and double zipper. Not to mention I don't live in the midwest and I may love midwest fashion but I'm not trying to make that much of a statement and I would stand out in my social circle a lot, especially because I liked the brown one. But back to this jacket, let's talk about the color. It's a very grey purple frosty color and the accents are green. I think it's cute, I'm happy with it. You can pull it off in an urban environment easily enough, but it also is nice in the outdoors. I liked the white one they had previously with the brown accents a lot more than the blue accents but I would probably spill something on the white one anyways.

Cozy & Warm

I will be cozy like a bear this winter!

October 19, 2021

Nice fit

I bought this coat as I love longer coats for the winters in Idaho. This fits great, I'm 5-7 and 150lbs. It isn't too bulky, but slim. I only gave it a 4 star as it wasn't as warm as I would have thought. But I still love it.

October 18, 2021

Comfy and Functional

I love this type of material for sweaters so I thought buying a jacket with it would be a great idea!

Warm Cuddley Bear

I really love this jacket and would have ordered an XL but the large was extra long for my 5' 1" body. Was a little snug cause I would wear sweaters with it. Wish Patagonia would make jackets that cover the backside for us short people. Back length between 30 to 32 would be fantastic.

October 3, 2021

Teddy bear coat

I feel like a warm teddy bear in this coat! I absolutely love it. My only issue is there is not as much room in the hips as I would like for curvy girls and if I had sized up I would have been swimming in it. If not for that I would give 5 stars

October 3, 2021

Pretty prefect for an all day hug.

Its a warm jacket. Perfect for fall time. Only problem i found was sometimes the wool get stuck while zipping.

September 15, 2021

Incredibly soft and comfortable

When I first tried this jacket on, I didn't want to take it off. It fits well and is very comfortable. I am looking forward to the cooler weather so I can wear it all the time!!

September 13, 2021

Super cute

Have always been a big fan of Patagonia. Well-made

September 10, 2021

Warm and cozy

I bought this to wear while walking the dogs in the winter. Although it isnt winter yet, its exactly what I was looking for. Its thick and warm.

Nice heavy coat

All the fleece coats I own are light weight- this is heavier- designed for colder weather- like that its a heavier fit. Very snug which is nice and a nice long length , a coat length not a jacket length - again a plus - like the duel color scheme , the only drawback to the coat is I wish it contained more blue - a few stripes would have made it mor...

So cute and comfy Im almost ready for winter

I love this coat so much that I tried it on immediately upon delivery, on a 106 degree day. Super cute, warm, and well made. Fits perfectly, quality is great.

August 16, 2021

Perfect for Surfing!

I purchased this jacket for before/after surfing. It runs a little large which is perfect. I can dry off, put this jacket on and take off my swimsuit. This jacket keeps me warm!

August 4, 2021

Really Nice!

I wanted to get this last year - but it was out of stock. Decided to get it off season so I don't miss out. Since it is still Summer, I have not worn it, but the coat is well made, fits well (I am a size 8-10 and got the Medium - it has enough room for a sweater underneath) and feels quite warm, but not too heavy. Love it!

Dusty Mesa Fleece Parka

This super cute parka has always been out of stock when I've tried ordering it, so I had to order it in the Spring and haven't had a chance to wear it yet, but I have tried it on and love it! Super cute and fits great!

I miss it in the summer!

I have never reviewed anything before, but I love this coat SO much. Like...I miss it when its hot out. It is incredibly warm, has soft pockets, has long enough sleeves but they dont fall around your hands. And it washes well!

My favorite winter jacket

I wanted a warm and versatile jacket and this is wonderful. I live in a climate where winter temps can vary by 30 or 40 degrees over the course of a day, and I can wear this throughout. Have comfortably worn it with a light puffy underneath down into low teens (though I was hiking...just standing around would be a little chilly without more layers)... Read More, and can wear with just a t-shirt in the low 40s. Any warmer than that and it's too toasty for my taste. It's actually really cute, and I found it to be true to size since I have pretty wide shoulders. A size down looked fine (couldn't tell much difference visibly between the two) but it restricted my arm movement, and would have lost some of it's insulation ability since it didn't take much movement before the fabric was pulled tight against my torso. My usual size is great with a puffy or sweater underneath. Yes, it's loose, but that's some of the appeal of the jacket... It's really a unique item and stands out from all the tight women's clothing that's available, and feels like wearing a cozy blanket. I also really like the wrist cuffs that keep the sleeves in place and the cold out. One request is for Patagonia to make it in other colors. I'm assuming they went with natural colors to give it a fur-ish sort of look, but it would actually be really beautiful in deeper colors like purple or blue. And a version without a hood would be awesome. When it's cold enough to wear this jacket I always have a hat and neck gaiter with me anyway, and have used the hood maybe half a dozen times in four months when I underestimated the cold. And I find the hood is so heavy that it pushes down on the arms of my glasses, which isn't comfortable. But even with these things, it's by far my favorite coat for everyday use.

My favorite coat!

I wanted a longer sherpa coat and this does not disappoint! It's heavier than I thought it would be and is incredibly cozy. I highly recommend. Usually, I get a small in coats so I can layer but they only had an XS at the time so I pushed my luck and it fits great!

March 3, 2021

Great Jacket

This jacket is awesome! It's super soft and warm. The jacket has a heavier weight to it than I expected, which is great for colder days. I was a little nervous that an XS would be too tight, but the jacket had a surprising amount of room so that I can even wear a sweatshirt underneath. Would definitely recommend.

March 2, 2021

Sizing a bit off

I wanted to like this jacket, but it just did not fit quite right. The color I got was really nice. The jacket itself is very substantial and very warm. However, it is bulky and oddly cut. The middle is roomy, but the bottom is a bit tight around the thighs. If that ratio was reversed, this would be a cute fit. But for shorter women like myself, it... Read More looks a bit like a giant teddy bear. Also, the top of the zipper/collar is stiff and dug into my neck when fully closed, which felt uncomfortable. Sadly, I had to return the coat.

We're so sorry the fit of this didn't work out for you, but we're glad you were able to make a return on it. We don't have too many parkas at the moment that are comparable in terms of style, but if you want to check out a jacket with a similar texture we'd recommend the [Women's Snap Front Retro-X Fleece Jacket](

Fits perfectly for tall and long arms! If you want to wear items underneath get XL

It was a gift for my daughter and she absolutely loves it. She likes that its not big and bulky. Light weight but very warm.

Worth The Price Tag

I hesitated on this due to price and then it sold out, but when I saw there was White available in Medium, I went for it and I am not disappointed. This is perfect for throwing on during cold AM walks, taking the dog out for his last potty you will not feel the cold. I love the hood is slightly oversized so if its raining, you have coverage over ... Read Moreyour face. Drawstrings help to really secure to your face if wanted. The sleeve cuffs are super nice and hug your wrists so no cold is coming in there. The pockets are a good depth where I can put my whole hand and iPhone Pro Max11 securely inside. The lining of the pockets is also super soft and nice so if you need to warm your your hands - go there lol. The actual lining of the coat reminds me of my very nice wool coat and heat is not escaping that. This has a double zipper so you can slightly unzip the bottom if needed to allow your legs to move more freely while walking and/or to bend your knees. Due to my height this falls slightly after my knee. I have worn it every day for a week and expect to take care of it properly. I do think it might matte or pill at some point, but I think there is beauty in our favorite items becoming worn as we wear them. Plus Ill just get a fabric shaver for the pilling if that does start. My anxious maltipoo also likes this as I think he thinks Im in his pack when we go for walks - he has jumped on it a couple times but I have not seen any snags or concerns/damage. Very happy with this piece. Would absolutely buy again in another color next Fall/Winter season. I am 5ft 2, 120-135lbs - usually 125lbs, prefer clothing to be looser, 33B

This jacket is awesome, I would have multiple colors if I could find them. This is a warm fluffy jacket, a little heavy which is perfect and just what I expected. Love the mama bear look!

"More Jacket" than I had been anticipating . . . .

Sadly, I had to return this parka. I had hoped to wear it for morning walks, looking forward to the longer length in a warm fleece jacket. However, I didn't realize that it's a very heavy-weight, substantial fleece. When I took the jacket out of the box, it felt more like a rug. I truly looked like a bear when I tried it on. The sleeves a... Read Morere VERY long, and the whole jacket is much heavier and stiffer (and warmer) than I had been expecting. I think it would be great for someone taller, and for colder weather. But it really didn't work for me. I went back to my favorite Nano Puff jackets for those morning walks.

Cozy is the word

I LOVE this jacket. It is as cozy as it looks, makes me want to go out in our blustery fall weather. I can wear a sweater under it but haven't needed that yet. I live in the north and our winters are serious. I expect that I will wear it for all but the coldest days. It is probably too long for cross-country skiing, but the length is a good fe...

Better than I thought!

This coat is amazing, based on some of the bad reviews I wasnt sure Id love it but they are wrong! The xs fits great on me and has extra room for if youre wearing thicker layers. Its super warm also!

This coat was delivered just 15 minutes ago and I couldn't wait to try it on. Wow! The fit is perfect (medium). I'm 5-2" and I weigh 130 so I'm a bit chunky. Still the coat fits well enough that there's room for a warm sweater underneath. It falls about 2 inches above the knee. The coat is surprisingly light weight, but war... Read Morem and snuggly anyway and perfect for NE Ohio's cold late fall/early winter/early spring weather. I'm doing something about the extra poundage and when I'm at my target weight, this coat will fit even better if that's possible. I got in taupe. It makes me look like a furry animal so if one crosses my path s/he might not be afraid of me! My cat was getting ready to curl up in it.

Perfect jacket for coming winter

Really good quality than I espected. i purchased it for my wife. she LOVES this jacket. details of stitches and finishing materials blew us away. 100% recycled fluff makes not only dazzling syle also high quality of efficiency of windbreaker! recommand true size. my wife is 5' and 110lbs goes with xs. perfect fit!

Lovely Parka

I absolutely love the design of this parka. It's so fluffy, soft, and warm! I really hope Patagonia keeps releasing these in new colors. Something like a deep green or plum would be to die for!

Absolutely love this coat

I loveeee this coat. Ive had it for about a month now and its fantastic and also very cute/comfortable. I live in MN, so winters are cold. Although, I do not wear this for our really cold or below zero days, it is a perfect jacket for all the other slightly warmer days (Aka those 20/30+ degree days). It keeps me very warm.

PERFECT for those brutal Midwest winters!

I'm 5' 1 about 140 pounds and I ordered a size Medium as I do for all of my Patagonia wear so far. This coat falls right below my knees and the hood is perfect to bundle up in. I went for the one that is all navy/dark blue and I love how dark it is simply because the snow and dust from cleaning off your car (if you are into that kind of t...
