Great fit for a big guy
Being 6'5", 240 lbs and living in Japan, Patagonia is one of the few stores I can find clothes that fit (and can return without crazy international shipping costs if it doesn't). I work as a photo tour guide, so I am outside all of the time. This coat is great for me. It is warm enough, and fits my broad shoulders and long arms. The... Read Morere is room to layer a fleece underneath for cold days. One of the things I like the best about this coat is that it is heavy in a solid kind of way. I feel protected. I have quite a few down jackets that have gotten ripped up catching on branches or nails that stick out. After two winters of daily use, this coat is tough and has held up to all kinds of abuse. The pockets, zips and buttons are good, but the hood is useless and I don't use it. My only suggestion would be to have some sort of way to cinch down the waist. Two thumbs up!
What body type is this designed to fit?
I'm 6'2, 190lbs. Size Large fit great in the shoulders but was HUGE in the midsection. I'm used to this with most jackets and shifts, but really, this jacket seemed like it was specifically geared toward the guy with a giant protruding belly.
Thank you for your comments on this and we apologize for the troubles with sizing. This jacket is definitely made to be a relaxed fit and we'd be happy to help with an [exchange](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) for a smaller size if you're interested.
Stylish and warm
It fits the body well and is a versatile jacket for many outfits or activities. Usually I order a small from Patagonia in their fleece pullovers or jackets so I ordered a small for this jacket, but it is a little tight. I recommend going a size up if you're unsure if it'd be too small
Thanks for the feedback and we are glad you're liking the design of the jacket. We are sorry however, that the fit isn't working well. If you'd like to [send](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) this back to us for an exchange, please feel free to do so.
Great jacket, be prepared for a short torso
I'm 6'8" wearing a Large. The sleeves are the right length, the torso is on the short side. I'm okay with it and I know that a lot of trucker jackets are shorter in the torso. Just be prepared for that. Other than that, it's a great jacket that I'm really enjoying so far.
Great Fit and Style
I was looking for a more casual jacket from my most trusted outerwear brand. This jacket fits the bill, and didn’t look out of place in the city.

Great jacket, weird hood
Overall I love the jacket. It fits really well and I like the shorter length body with long sleeve length. I'm 6'3" with long arms and the sleeves are perfect if not slightly long, so just beware.

Thinking about buying another one to store for when this one wears out. This thing fits PERFECT, which for me is rare. I'm 6'1" and have the obscure body type of being slim with long arms.

Great looking jacket, Not so great fit
This jacket looks great. It's warm and cozy. As far as appearance and materials go, it's just about perfect. The arms are a bit long as some have described, but as someone who has average length arms (as I believe I have), it's nothing that tightening the cuffs a little bit doesn't remedy. My one complaint is that, while just ab... Read Moreout every single shirt, fleece I buy from Patagonia fits me perfectly, jackets and coats from Patagonia always seem to run small on my XXL frame. I don't get it; especially considering that Patagonia clothing is so inclined to promote layering. The fit is frustrating, but I still do recommend the jacket. If you're a bigger guy though and you usually wear XXL, you may want to think about buying coats/jackets from another company.
Utility vs. Style
I'm 5' 11" 190lbs, bought a medium which fit well. Sleeves rolled up at the cuff and I could comfortably wear a thick sweater underneath. It is the perfect size if utility is your main concern, which mine is not. Having been an Oakland hipster too long, I can't handle having a bulky feeling with my clothes so I exchanged it for ...

Hi Jon, thanks writing us a review! We're sorry to hear that the jacket didn't fit quite right. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Great jacket, poor fit
I had to return it as did many others that reviewed the jacket. I loved the material and weight of it, however, the sleeves were way to long and the body too short. I always order my Patagonia items in medium and they fit perfectly so I feel like the designers need to modify the fit of this item.
I am 5’10” and a stocky guy with a 44” chest. I think it fits very well, I also chose the XL to give a little room to comfortably fit a sweater/hoodie underneath if I wanted to be very warm while hiking or shoveling outside.

When my arms are at my side they almost touch my knuckles, in my opinion that’s perfect. Gives the perfect amount of room for gloves to keep cold and snow out.

Nice warm jacket.
I am 5’ 8” tall and based on my height I was suggested Small size but when I received it, I tried it out and it’s too short. Then I exchanged to Medium size and it fits perfect but only issue I have is the sleeves are longer. I don’t know if it’s designed that way. Over all, I love it. Keeps me warm and it’s light. Thanks Patagonia.
Really great jacket with some oddly long sleeves
If this jacket fits you, you should definitely get it. I've been looking for a jacket like this for a while. Sadly, I looked like a little kid wearing a medium because while everything else on the jacket fit well, the sleeves were about 4 inches too long.
Like others, I found the
Like others, I found the sleeves disproportionately long. I wear 34 sleeves, and the medium was more like a 36-37, hanging between 2nd and 3rd finger knuckle. Otherwise, really liked the jacket.
We're sorry about the sleeves being too long! If you were looking to return this but haven't already, just reach out to us so we can facilitate that process for you. We're also always happy to email you any item's measurements chart so you can feel more confident about your next purchase.

Freakishly long arms
Overall this jacket is very nice, except the freakishly long arms, which force me to give it 2 stars.

Yes, sleeves are long but I like it that way.
One of the concerns I had reading the reviews before I purchase this jacket was the sleeve length. Yes, I can say the sleeves are long. But it LIKE them that way.

Read Morehe jacket overlaps and is therefore not trying to push your gloves off. The times when I do wear this jacket without gloves I don't mind the extra length because it helps keep my hands warm. The jacket runs a little small. I'm 6'2" 220 lbs and normally get a Large, but Patagonia's sizer recommended me the XL so I purchased XL and it fits perfect! I've worn the jacket as warm as 50 degrees and as low as 5 degrees here in Chicago and it's breathable in warmer weather, but keeps you warm in the cold. I've never used the hood. The only reason I would think you'd want it is if you're outdoors and a storm picks up unexpectedly and you don't have a winter hat. The hood is minimalistic and unnoticeable if you don't know what to look for. I've had the jacket for about 4 months now and it shows no sign of wear, so I'm confident it will last me a long time. I wish the jacket chest pocket was on the outside, which is why I'm rating 4 stars. I typically keep my wallet in there and it's less convenient to have to open my jacket to access it. Other than that I have no complaints with this jacket.
Great Cool Weather Jacket, But Sleeves Are Too Long
I like this jacket very much except that the sleeves are too long. I'm 5'10", 180. Purchased a large Maple Grove jacket. Chest, waist, collar all fit perfectly, except for the sleeves.

Comically long sleeve length, short waist, narrow shoulders
Any positive attributes of this jacket aren't worth mentioning when the fit is so odd it's unwearable. I've been an XL for 40 years and I've never tried on a coat this short at the waist and long in the sleeves. Since it was a Christmas gift, it was passed around to see if it would fit any of the XL wearers in the family for ins... Read Moretant re-gifting or white elephant trades, but drew chuckles about different issues between our varying heights. The sleeve length was almost correct for my 6'4" son, but it was so short at the waist we joked he'd need a nicer belt buckle. At 6-1, if I reach upward it exposes a 'high ride' conceal carry weapon, yet the sleeves fall at the second knuckle of my hands. Reaching forward, it's somewhat tight through the shoulders. No takers for a gift trade, and I would have traded it for a jig saw puzzle. Good wind breaking on the outer shell, but not warm at all. The short and open waist without an elastic cuff around the bottom or sleeves gives this coat true flow-through ventilation. Made in Vietnam. Patagonia virtue signals their cotton source concerns, but doesn't care about the torture of dogs before slaughter and live cooking for their meat market in this third world environmental wreck? As a gift, it was the thought that counts. The Patagonia label was intended to impress. But it's not a product that competes in fit, function, or any practical metric. Actual rating for the overall fit: Too big, too small, just right pocket size - Possibly correct for some carnival people.

I have had my eye on this jacket for about a year now and received it for Christmas this year.

I am 6'3" with a long torso, but have never had an issue with an XL from Patagonia, until this jacket. The torso is much shorter than usual, the arm length was fine for me, but the bottom of the XL fell above my waistline by several inches and it was quite a bit too wide for me. Very bummed to have to return this, but that is what is happening. I would absolutely purchase this in the future if they offered a tall or long sizing.
Nice, but arms are very long
I have long arms and this jacket's arms went all the way to my finger tips. The torso is a bit short too but that alone would not have been an issue. I liked the jacket overall, but will have to return it due to the arms being way too long. I should have read the other reviews more closely as it is mentioned many times.
Great except one thing...
Style: I am 5'8" 168 athletic build. I went with the M with the recommendations from others. I purchased the Grey to dress up for work or dress down for the ranch.

Mobility and Function is a 5 out of 5. This is my favorite feature. Fit: The torso is short and arms are long. It looks a little silly when I have a layer bunched up underneath showing such as a sweater. The arm length is such I have to snap the cuffs tight so they don't flop over my hands. Being 5'8" they could be a little shorter. The torso is short even on me. Fit is a 3 out of 5. Total I give this jacket a 4 out of 5. I can get over the awkward shortness even on a 5'8" body because the style and function are strong. I would recommend this. I would even purchase this jacket again if they made arm length a little shorter, and the torso a little longer and gave it a 1" tail like most working vests have.

The Medium was much too tight around the chest and left no room for layering. It was also too short given the way this jacket is cut. Large still looks great and leaves room to layer. I didn't think I'd like the hood feature,but I ended up using it I like it. You wouldn't even know it's there when stowed. I'm deducting one star (wish I could deduct one half) because of the sleeves and zipper. The rest of the jacket fits me perfectly,but the sleeves are about half an inch too long,nearly covering my knuckles when my arms are at the side. Patagonia is usually generous with sleeve length,which I love,but this is just a little too long. As for the zipper,it's made of plastic. It may be fine in the long-run,but it just feels a little cheap. I would have liked to see metal here.
I live in Minnesota and bought this to be my warm weather coat for the winter. But I feel likes this coat drains my heat instead of preserving it.

Overall a great jacket
I've had the jacket about two months now and am loving it,though there are a few changes I'd suggest for future models. Here's what I wanted to know before I bought it: How does it fit? Like a lot of patagonia jackets,the shoulders are a little narrow and the midsection is a little wide. But rather than feeling constricted,I feel mo... Read Morere "hugged" by the fleece interior,which makes it cozy and adds to the warmth. I'm athletically built,6'4" and 200 lbs,and the large fits great. I've had no problem layering with a flannel shirt and sweater. I was pleasantly surprised to find the jacket was longer than I expected it to be,especially on me (it hits just past the belt line). About the arms: Yeah,they're long. The cuff hits about where my thumb begins,about halfway between my wrist and my knuckles. At first I found this annoying,but as I've worked in it (reaching for tools,swinging an axe),I've come to love the extra length. The sleeves never ride up! Plenty of sleeves are either too constricting and can hinder your movement or too loose and flop around. These hit the sweet spot,allowing me to work without ever feeling like I had to overcome the jacket to do something. How does it stand up to the weather? Really well ' it's a LOT warmer than I thought it would be. I'd say the ideal temperature range for this is about 35-55,depending on your base layer (I was toasty walking through downtown Roanoke a few nights ago in the mid-30s with a sweater). It's not listed as windproof,but I haven't felt a thing through the heavy canvas,thick fleece and sleeve insulation. The DWR works great,but keep in mind the thickness of the jacket: It might not be 'waterproof' but you'd have to be standing in a driving rain for quite a while before the water got through all those layers. (As other commenters have said,the hood ' is probably never getting used,by me anyway. It's a nice thought,but it's thin,oddly small and doesn't do much more than a ballcap would.) How does it look? Awesome. My wife loves it,and I've received more compliments on it than any other item of clothing I can remember. Most of my technical pieces pull double duty as casual wear,but it's a good alternative to looking like another member of the puffy patrol. In a sea of down sweaters and Carhartt at the brewery,you'll stand out in a good way. How does it feel? Substantial,rock-solid. So many jackets are getting lighter and lighter,either for technical pursuits or because companies are using cheaper materials. This thing is heavy in in a good way; it feels like a quality piece you can put through the ringer. Nitpicks: The handwarmer pocket lining is nice: soft and inviting. But it could be so much warmer. I wish the fleece on the inside also lined the pockets. Right now the microfleece (microfiber?) lays directly against the canvas on the outside,and tends to 'hold' the cold,if that makes sense. Warm air gets trapped in fleece,and so fleece almost always feels warm to the touch,or warms up quickly. But this material always feels cold to the touch,at least to me. The front cargo pockets are as tall as they look and great for holding tools outside. But when sitting,the top of the pockets pushes inward,putting pressure across my sternum,right below my chest. It doesn't restrict my breathing or anything,but I find myself shifting around or just unzipping it entirely in the car. I think some adjustable tabs that snap on the bottom hem would help with the bit of billowiness. But overall,I'm incredibly pleased I pulled the trigger on this jacket. If you're on the fence,I say go for it: It's a warm,stylish piece that will probably last me until my kids grow up and steal it in about 20 years. And I'm sure patagonia wouldn't have it any other way.
Great jacket - especially if you're a gibbon.
This is a nearly perfect mid-weight jacket. The fleece is cozy,and the canvas does a good job of stopping the wind.
