Patagonia Women's Regenerative Organic Pilot Cotton Essential Hoody

True To Size

Super comfy and also stylish.

Super comfy and also stylish. I especially love that it's made with organic cotton.

Must have organic cotton wardrobe piece

The women's regenerative organic certified cotton hoody is designed with a regular fit which allows for layering. The cotton is a mid-weight, soft, and very comfortable. Its clean lines pair it well with sweat pants or casual pants. I wear an 8-10 in Patagonia and ordered the medium. Both the sleeve length and the length of the body of the pie...

Very comfortable, great color

Lightweight with some stretch. Very comfortable and great length. Love the forest green color too!

yummy soft fabric. So well

yummy soft fabric. So well made. So Patagonia!

I returned the item

I am between sizes M and L, but L was not available, I bought M, And it was too small.

Excellent quality casual hoodie

I own two of these now and they're some of my favorite tops in my wardrobe. The fabric quality is as nice as any other Patagonia clothing item. They feel sturdy even though they are relatively lightweight for hoodies. I really like how the silhouette looks as well. The slits in the sides make it comfortable to wear and I love the look and feel... Read More of the neckline as well. Overall a great product. No complaints!

Okay Hoody

I returned this. Patagonia has a solid returns system in place imo. Quick and painless return and refund. Quality fabric. This is not fuzzy fleece lined, but still a solid indoor hoody for winter/outdoor hoody for warmer months. It was a little tight in the shoulders, but the primary reason for return was because there is an elastic band at the col... Read Morelar of the hood that was problematic with my neck sensitivities. The slits on the side were also a bit longer/higher than I would prefer.

Love this hoody

This was my first Patagonia purchase and I love it! Im 5ft2in 160lbs and I ordered a medium in the slate blue color. I am a mom in my mid thirties and trying to build a staple wardrobe of casual but cute clothes and this hit the nail on the head. I love that this isnt stretchy or fleece so it can be layered and truly worn in almost any season. Look... Read Mores great with dark wash skinny jeans or leggings. It does have slits on the sides but I think that helps it look more put together.

Hoody with Style

Absolutely love this! The side slits and neck detail give this every day hoody that little bit of extra style. Fits great and I had to buy several colors!

November 25, 2022

Go-to hoodie!

Like some other reviewers I did not realize this hoodie had slits so I was at first unpleasantly surprised, but then I put it on and loved the fit. It's basically the only thing I want to wear around the house now; have washed it about a dozen times and it still looks new. Slits are perfect for high waisted pants and layering over tank tops. I... Read More will be buying a second one and sending my other hoodies to goodwill. For reference I am a little over 5'6", 130lb and the XS has a roomy, relaxed and drapey fit on me.

Favorite sweatshirt

I bought two of these sweatshirts and they are my absolute favorites! High quality, functional, breathable, light weight and great colors.

November 5, 2022

Trying to like it..

I was disappointed to learn the hoody has 6" slits cut down both sides of the garment that none of the pictures with the model showcase. They should at least give the buyer a side view and warning! I decided I'd try to break out of my regular clothing trend and have been wearing it around the house but I find the fit to be a little strang... Read Moree. I'm not sure if it's just my piece or meant to be that way but the hood was sewn at an angle and sits crooked & weird around my neck. It's also breezy because the slits are cut so high. I think it's going to have to go back. Things I appreciate are the quality, and it fits true to size. It's fairly heavy and seems like it'd be a nice piece but I'm just too thrown off here.

Thank you for submitting this review, L. We appreciate the feedback about the photos. The product details note the side-slit detail on the hem along the side seams for mobility and comfort, but you're right that it isn't clear from the photo. It sounds like this hoody may not work for you, so we will reach out to you about returning it.

Size up for relaxed fit

This review is for the FA21 version. Super comfy and flattering. I mostly wear mid/high rise pants, so I like the slits on the sides. I am 5ft5 140lbs 34DDD and typically wear a medium. This fits true to size, but I decided to go with the large. I wanted a more relaxed fit and some room for shrinkage (all of my 100% cotton Patagonia clothes shrink ...

Lighter weight hoodie

Well made and stylish hoodie. Washed well, no pilling and retained its shape after air drying.

Weird Fit

I wanted to love this hoodie but it just fit really weird. It's fitted for chest but wide on hips. It wasn't flattering. Decided to return it

Thank you for sharing this feedback, Jennifer. We're sorry to hear this fit wasn't good for you! Thank you for returning a shirt that wasn't going to work for you. Please let us know if we can help you find a better option!

Mid-Weight & Comfortable

I sized up from L to XL and am very pleased with the way this top hangs, I love the side slits! For reference, I am 170 lbs. Mushroom is a gorgeous neutral color.

June 8, 2022

Not always perfect

I wanted to get this hoody because all the reviews said it was a perfect fit. When I tried it on the sleeves were too short, but the garment hit on the waist just right. Color Shroom Taupe is just right though!

Perfect fit

Perfect fit. Love the hoody. Beautiful blue color.

May 13, 2022

Perfect Weight

I was looking for a lightweight sweatshirt to wear in spring and summer. This is perfect. It is a relaxed fit on me which is perfect for popping over a tee, on cooler days or putting on as the evening cools down. I like the side slits they add to the casual easygoing fit. Ive worn it traveling too, washes up great and just what I needed for air tra... Read Morevel comfort.

Best Hoody

Love the toasted peach color hoody. Comfortable and fits perfectly.

Perfect length

Perfect! 56 150lbs large fits great. Love this for just hanging around

May 2, 2022

cool pullover hoody

Unique tight weave material and draping style give this a different and cool appearance. I can fit mediums and smalls in Patagonia and ordered a small after seeing the models. I'm going to return for a medium because I think the drooping style is needed here, and the sleeves will be a bit longer for me. Could wear either. The colors are great ... Read Moretoo!

Great Hoody for Spring/Fall

This hoody is well made and the material is soft. It fits tts, I normally wear a 6 and it was comfortably loose, but not sloppy looking. There are slits on the side, which I did not see in the pictures. Since I don't wear high waisted pants and am tall, I returned the hoody bc the slits were a little high. Wish they weren't there at all, ... Read Morewould have definitely kept it then.

All around awesome sweatshirt! Going to purchase one in every color!

Lightweight & super comfy

I am loving this simple, no frills hoody. It's a great weight for all seasons here in the Rockies!

January 1, 2022

Great cotton hoody

Nice fit and super comfortable. It's a very soft black color, like a beautiful dark gray. Got an oily spot on the front on the very first wear and it washed out beautifully. Great quality from Patagonia, thanks!

December 26, 2021

Perfect shirt

Great for work, casual, and outdoors activities. All around great fit and comfort.

December 7, 2021

Instant favorite

I was looking for something to East inside and this works! If it didnt have cuffs it would have been perfect, but its not right, so its quite comfortable. The hood is nice a big and keeps my head warm without being tight. Also a really good price.
