Very Cute and Comfortable, but Bulky
This jacket is everything I imagined it to be. Very warm and well made. I love how cute it is, but it is just too bulky on me. I normally wear a Large in Patagonia jackets, but I could have worn a Medium in this. Ultimately I returned it since it didn't flatter my body type. It would be absolutely adorable on someone a couple sizes smaller tha... Read Moren me.
Warm and stylish
I bough this without knowing what to expect. I thought it will be a fleece but it is actually a jacket . Super warm and stylish . I would wear it with jeans or pants and boots. It is super warm and size small for me fits perfectly. Highly recommended . Love Patagonia !!!
Does not look flattering
The overall fit of this jacket is fine. But the way the product looks on me is very frumpy. It looks like I could be hiding a filled kangaroo pouch or two winter jackets underneath.

So I am a true
So I am a true small In Patagucci. I wanted this jacket as it seemed to be ultra warm and the high collar was a draw. I bought a Medium thinking that I may layer. No draw string and it was a true medium. I felt like the pile was a bit stiff. The color was not what I expected. Just not for me. The sale price was amazing. I have many jackets. I typic...

Super warm and comfy
This jacket is the best that I've ever purchased. I have many Lululemon jackets and none of them are as warm and chic as this one. I wore it with just one layer in a -20C and I didn't not feel any cold at all. I love the inner zipper to keep my glasses or mini wallet with me. I highly recommend this, I am in love!
This coat is unbelievably warm,
This coat is unbelievably warm, actually as warm as a hand me down fur coat I have ! The high collar keeps all the cold air out, and nice deep pockets that zip. I have no problem with the snaps on the outside of the jacket, as other customers have. I ordered a size small, and I have an athletic build with very broad shoulders .
Cute, not practical
I liked the look, especially the high collar, but returned it because of problems: fuzzy-looking fabric is stiff and scratchy; cut is too short to keep you warm; fits large in body but tight at hips. I would love something like this but this didn't hit the mark.

Fun thick coat, runs large for petites
I am 5'2"/108/34 bust. Bought this coat in small. It's too large for me, particularly the sleeves. But with that said, the style is rather enveloping. So unsure if an extra small would also feel like too much coat. It does seem like it would be warm and cozy.
I like this jacket. Wish the neckline was looser. I bought on sale and feel like the fit is the reason the jacket wS on sale

Another favorite of the season
I purchased this jacket based off of other reviews of how warm it is. I didn't think it would be my style, but when I received it and put it on, I knew it would be a staple in my gear.

Gorgeous and Cozy
I first got this jacket in a Medium which is my normal Patagonia jacket/tops size. But when it arrived it was kind of awkward and too bulky.

Very fun, Incredibly warm
This jacket is extra warm and very fun to wear. The detailing of weather proof cuffs and zippered, fleecey pockets and double closure front are luxurious. I also really like the recycled down story with this piece. I feel extremely fortunate whenever wearing this jacket :)
Stylish down outwear? Yes please! Wore to festival, tons of compliments! Size allows for a sweater or sweatshirt but I like to wear over a down vest. The collar made a huge difference for me.

I am outside often for my job as a window decorator in a small historic downtown and want to be warm, but also look stylish as I drag my wagon full of props up and down the street!
Love, love this teddy bear jacket
I really enjoy wearing this jacket. Although it fits me well in the inside of the jacket, the jacket is puffy due to the down and fleece.

I love that all the pockets have zippers so I dont lose anything inside the pockets, especially when traveling. I also love the brown color as well. The only issue I've had with this jacket is finding the buttons since the buttons get buried in the fleece, but other than that, I know that I will be wearing this jacket for many years to come.
Now my go-to jacket
I recently moved to the Pacific Northwest from Hawaii, and my other Patagonia jackets were warm but still kept me a bit chilly sometimes.

Finally, the PERFECT coat!!
Finally a fashionable coat with down filling! Typically you have to choose between cute and warm but you get both with this! Love the collar; snuggles right up my neck. Perfect for my short hair. Nice tight cuffs hold my mittens on perfectly. Dress this baby up or down. Pockets are perfectly placed and cozy. The only thing thats a little odd are th...

I love this jacket! I bought the tan, its beautiful! Im 54, 150 lbs. A large would probably fit, but I love the boxy look of this XL. The length sits just below my hips.

Comfy and Warm
Love love love this jacket!!! I was surprised by how warm it is. I went to go see my in-laws over the holidays. My mother-in-law loved it so much I gave her mine and ordered another for myself. I ordered a large because I have super long arms. Otherwise, I could have gotten away with a medium.
Black is grey!
Love this coat, but the black is grey! Compared to my Carhartt fleece jacket, this black coat is more like a light charcoal color. Will return for the teddy bear color instead.

Warm AND stylish
I especially love the stylish collar on this jacket. Such a fun way to dress up a fleece! I receive lots of compliments on it every time I wear it. It's also super warm and has great pockets. Glad I snagged one. Regarding sizing, it runs large IMO. I am almost always a medium in Patagonia - had to exchange this for small.
I am totally in love and obsessed with this jacket. As soon as I tried it on I could feel a deep warmth consume me. Its so well constructed and the fleece is very soft and luxurious, not to mention its quite stylish. I just couldnt be happier about this purchase. Don't even hesitate. Also- zip pockets= totally rad!
cute but couldn't zip it.
Most hip-length Pata jackets are smaller in the hip width than the size chart would suggest, making them impossible to zip. This is one of those.

This is a really warm coat and looks great. I love the high collar. I've already started wearing it in Southern California at night. It is super SOFT and comfortable.

If you are even slightly considering this jacket buy it! Absolutely outstanding! Comfy cozy and warm I love this jacket. Also 100 % windproof with a high collar that keeps you snuggled in.
