Patagonia Women's Melton Wool Overshirt Jacket

March 20, 2023

Details are a bit too oversized

I love wool jackets and wanted to love this so badly. It was really close to being perfect but I ultimately decided to return it because I found the design to be a bit too oversized. The fabric is so soft and I love the length and overall cut of the jacket, but I found the features of the jacket (mostly the front pocket) to be awkwardly large. Writ...

Soft, thick, and warm.

I got the brown jacket and I love it so much. Im about 170 lbs, wear size 12-14 in womens pants, and have an hourglass figure. I ordered a large but it felt too big for me so I exchanged it for a medium which fits great. Its snug around my wide hips if I button the bottommost button. I still love this jacket and prefer the medium to the large. It s... Read Moretill fits like an oversized jacket and is really cozy, soft, and warm. And for it being snug around the hips if I button it its still roomy enough to wear a hooded sweater underneath. Other buyers comment that the cut is boxy around the shoulders which is true but the garment softens with a few wears and will lay more smoothly over the shoulders. Overall, I am satisfied with this jacket and the exchange service Patagonia provided. I hope this review helps.

This is a serious coat

I have this great vintage woolwich shirt that is on its last legs, and I had hoped that this might be a replacement for that. It is unfortunately not in any way a shirt, but instead a very thick, very warm, nicely made jacket. I expect it would last generations. I bought it spur of the moment on sale, or else the price would have obviously made me ... Read Morerealize this wasn't going to be a shirt. While it wasn't what I was after, I decided to keep it because it is a great jacket. The fit is large and cozy. It might be too large, the arm holes are voluminous. But it layers like a dream, and doesn't restrict movement. We had record cold temps of -50 last weekend and I did farm chores in this layered over my down puff, and I was toasty warm. I would not say its flattering, but we live in Maine and flattering just isnt at the top of my priority list for winter outerwear. Amazingly I actually dont find it too bulky, you can drive in it, or grocery shop, and its a classy casual look with dresses etc, which my down puff just didn't offer. Im 5 ft 6 in, and an athletic 165lbs- straight, not curvy, definitely not a small. I bought a medium, most of my Patagonia is medium. I do wonder if a small might have looked better, but I didn't want to send it back and risk having the sleeves too short or have it be tight across the shoulders. If anyone From Patagonia is reading this- I would be so psyched to see a nice warm woolwich style wool button up SHIRT for women!

Super warm & cozy

I am somewhere between a small & medium size & I am glad ordered a small! The jacket is made from lovely soft wool. Not itchy at all! The length is perfect and the curved hem is very stylish. The only down side is the width of the shoulder seams. It feels badly engineered, too much space in the top of the sleeves makes it feel boxy. The sle... Read Moreeves are very wide which is great for layering. I very carefully cold washed on delicate, hoping it may soften the shoulders a little. (I had to translate the washing instructions as they weren't in English!) I layed it flat to dry on a towel & gently reshaped while damp. I feel that with time it will soften & hang a little better through the arms. Great layering piece, just needs a little fine tuning on the shoulders so the seam is more in line with the side of my shoulders rather than sticking out a few inches.

Super cozy!

This jacket is super cozy and warm with large comfortable pockets both inside the jacket and on the sides for my hands.

City Hiker

Soft but structured. Oversized but fitted. The brown works with an all-black outfit in the city or with a natural wool turtleneck in the woods. A lifelong jacket for three seasons.

Thick and warm

The jacket is definitely oversized, Im normally a small and could have gone with an extra small and it probably would still be somewhat oversized. I love the look though, very warm. Thick jacket

Lifelong Style and Quality

Through the woods, an outdoor market or bingeing Maine Cabin Masters. Versatility and comfort. Flattering length. Structured but soft to the touch. A deep brown that goes well with black or neutral layers. I will wear this everywhere. Even if I shouldn't.

Great quality

This is a very nice jacket. Luckily caught it on sale because the price point is steep- to be expected it is wool. It is thick and great quality. I am between a M/L in all Patagucci I ordered a M in this. It fits oversized like it says. I am 5ft 7in 165lbs. Only complaint is I feel like the arms are really big/wide. But if you layer under its fine.... Read More

High Quality & Oversized

I ordered this in an XL and it was too big. I exchanged for a L and it was still quite big even for an oversized fit. The quality of the garment is amazing but comes with a steep price tag. I may have kept it if I liked the pattern/style more but couldnt justify the cost per wear.
