Just Right ...
Great jacket for those cool-in-between kind-of days along the NJ shore in spring & fall. Light enough to feel like I'm not encumbered by "too much" coat - perfect level of light-weight warmth.

I'm 5'4", trim-athletic build, slightly broad shoulders.

However, SO happy to have found a nice light color that will work great any time of year, and love that it was on sale!! Thank you Patagonia!
The Radalie parka is a very cute style coat. I love the warmth and weight of Patagonia coats. I dress layered a lot because I'm always cold at work and wherever I go. I ordered a M in this coat, it fit true to size except the sleeves were to long and it's not something that you can roll the sleeves up on because of the style. Patagonia ha...

Perfect coat !
I borrowed my daughters coat for a few days. It was a green one, the size was large . We both usually wear medium, but this fit perfectly and felt so good on, so I ordered my own in the grey color . I love the line, the fit, the color and the warmth . Its a perfect coat for weather that isnt extremely cold . My entire family love your products !
This is a VERY Slim cut.
I am 56 and busty. I like everything about this jacket except how it looks on me. I bought an XL because I wear an L in most other brands. The hips and length are fine, but this seems to be designed for more of a pear shaped person.
Thank you for the review! We would be more than happy to help you find a parka that will work for your body type. Please [reach out to us](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) so we can review our options and send over some measurements!
Stylish Gift for My Mom
I purchased this coat for my mom. She's 5'3 and weighs around 120lbs. The product does say it is a slim fit so keep that into consideration. The sleeves are very long so my mom just folds them.

Attractive coat for milder winter days
Beware - this coat runs a size too small. I am petite, usually wear an XS and had to exchange for a S- the XS was just too tight. Its a comfortable, stylish and lightweight coat. I dont wear it on the coldest winter days, but its good for 40s and above (I usually wear a fleece underneath). The purple color is pretty.
Thanks for your feedback on fit, style, fabric and warmth, Sarah! This "slim" fit, lightweight parka will feel a bit more snug than our "regular" fit items and we're glad to hear you were able to get the size that worked.
Soft and Warm
This parka is so much warmer than I thought it would be. It's nice and soft, too. I'm very happy with it. The exchange process was very easy. I'm 5'6", 140 lbs and had to order the large as the medium wasn't big enough to zip up. Other than that, it's a great parka and not too bulky.
I read the reviews and ordered the next size up. The sleeves were too tight even with thin shirt. Note: I am petite and usually wear smalls and extra smalls. Great quality! Confusing fit.
Thank you for your feedback on the Womens Radalie Parka we are sorry to hear that it did not work out for you. You are of course welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) and item per our Ironclad Guarantee.

Warm and practical.
Fit runs small. Warm and color goes with everything. Love that it zips from the bottom up also. Makes it convenient for driving. Wish the sleeves had some form of elastic gathering as it would keep rain/snow out. Also my arms are a little short, so I could turn up the cuffs and they would stay put. Otherwise, love the jacket.
Cute but Too Restrictive Through the Shoulders
Love the style! I'm 5'7", 130lbs and a bit of a pear shape. The medium worked well for me through the waist, hips and upper back, but not through front of the shoulders, where it was too narrow - felt like a straight jacket. You can kind of see it in the video of the model wearing the navy parka. I'm small on top (34A) but it ma... Read Morede me look squashed and flat. In the end, it was just too uncomfortable, so I returned it. If you have narrow shoulders, it might work really well for you.
I usually get a large but given that wasn't an option during the sale tried the XL and like the extra room for layering. One thing I miss, wait, two things I miss are; a hood and an interior zip pocket. The exterior zip is fine but shows the bulk. I wonder about the durability and will report back on that once it has seen some wearing time.
I haven't had a chance to wear this outside, but trying it on indoors certainly made me get a bit hot...a good sign, especially since I am prone to being cold. I initially ordered an XS but while the body fit fine, the arms were too tight for me to bend my arms comfortably. The exchange process was simple. The S in this cut gives me enough roo...

Way too small and tight in shoulders
I'm surprised this has as high of star ratings as it does-it has no hope of fitting someone ordering based on their typical size.

Love, love, love this Radalie Parka!
Love, love, love this Radalie Parka! It is just the right amount of warmth for daily wear. The Radalie design is my favorite & the fit of this style is flattering for all. I up-cycled my older parkas to buy this. I would LOVE to see the Radalie Jacket --in this same, "Sage Khaki" color!!!
Perfect for country dog walks
Awesome for throwing on over less warm clothes to get the dogs out for a walk in the field. The length is perfect. My only complaint is the chest being slightly small, though I have wide shoulders so this is not an uncommon problem. Fits beautifully through the waist and hip. I'm 5'6" 135 lbs.
Thin shell-like material
I Got this for a Christmas present and after three weeks of wear, I noticed two little knicks in the outer material and in the back the material was even melted in a small spot due to my seat warmers!

Good fit for a skinny person
I appreciate the snug fit as it keeps me warm and the coat doesnt get in the way doing daily tasks, such as getting in and out of the car, carrying groceries etc. My only complaint is often when zipping the coat, the material adjacent to the zipper gets stuck in the zipper. I have to unzip, pull out the material and rezip.
Super Warm, Slim Fit
I debated a lot about whether to size up in this jacket, and Im glad I stuck to my usual size so I can enjoy the slim fit design.

Form meets function
Lightweight warmth and stylishly cut to flatter. Fits true to size, perhaps a smidge small. Works perfectly for the SF Bay Area winter weather so far (40-55 degrees) with an medium weight long sleeve merino wool sweater underneath. Useful pockets and double zipper! An excellent form meets function coat.

This coat is surprisingly warm and requires few layers underneath even when it's 20-30 outside. I usually wear an XS and am glad I bought an S, like others suggested.

I an finding that most of your tops are running small in the sleeves ,and it is hard to wear a sweater with these jackets and coats. I am a 73 year old who hates heavy coats so the weight is perfect but I like to wear layers so I need extra room for my size!
I love it.
Im 50 and 95 lbs. I love Patagonia b/c the XS size consistently fits me. This jacket is no exception. Its warm enough for casual wear in New England winter months and not bulky. The stitching on the arms differ in pattern from the core of the coat which makes it visually interesting. I love it and it fits perfectly.
Its more snug that usual. I usually wear a XXS and I purchased an XS and it fits like an XXS. I really like how lightweight it feels and comfortable to move in. Im short so its a little long, but dont mind as much. Wish they would make pettie fit. Overall a good jacket, I would recommend.
Beautiful & warm...but sizing is odd.
I usually wear an XS or S. I wanted to be able to wear a sweater and my Patagonia down vest underneath this coat so I had to size-up to M to achieve this because the sleeves were too tight. In sizing-up to a M the sleeves are an inch too long so I'll need to have it tailored or roll the sleeves inward and hand stitch myself. This is not ideal...

Perfect Weight for being in the go!
This coat is lightweight but warm. Perfect for running errands and honestly about 80% of winter days in our Illinois climate. It does run a little small so I ordered up a size up. The sleeves were just a bit long but not bad. Love the flattering A-line shape and the interesting quilting patterns.
Perfect casual coat-size up for layering
I got this coat so I wouldnt have to put on my giant parka to walk my dog in the colder months. Ive found myself wearing this all the time rather than any of my other jackets or coats. Very comfortable and simple. If you want to wear sweaters or any layers, youll want to size up.
Great fit, super warm.
I got this jacket on sale. I wanted to order a small per fitting recommendation, but was all sold out, so I got the XS, thinking that if it didnt fit I would just give it to my daughter.

Beautiful color and extremely comfortable coat; size up if you have a large bust
The title here pretty much captures my thoughts. The bust area was too tight for me in the L (size 34F). I would prefer the bottom "skirt" area section to be a little more trim for warmth, but it would restrict movement more, especially if you had wider hips. Overall a nice design and an attractive coat.
The zipper catches almost every single time you zip up this coat. It makes me think it was not made correctly because the cover for the zipper always gets in the way of the zipper. Very unfortunate because it is a really great coat.
We're so sorry to hear about the troubles with the zipper on your parka. We appreciate the feedback on that and would be happy to help with a replacement. Feel free to check out our [Return's](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) page.
I wear a small in the Patagonia down sweater puffer jacket so I ordered a small in this. The sleeves were way to short and shoulders were very small. I returned it and got a medium and although the sleeves and shoulders are better the body is looser than Id like. Keeping it though because its so warm and comfy.
I love this coat, I don't have any issues with the zipper which I feared when reading other reviews.

Nice color and very packable
The cut of this jacket is very slim. The midsection taper required me to order up a size and will require me to have the sleeves altered. There is more fullness than I would like in the shoulders because of ordering up a size. It will be good for travel and will allow layering with light layers.
Super comfy but the zipper catches
Very warm and cozy jacket, perfect length to give added warmth to bum and thighs, but the zipper constantly catches on the other side when you sip it up.

Read Mores warm and cozy, I love the change in the stitching pattern, very flattering, great quality material, water resistant, and length keeps you warm. Cons: I loved the design so much that I bought it anyway but a very big con is that is had no hood! If it is cold enough to wear a parka then I think a hood would be necessary too. The bottom portion of the parka (from the hips down) is cut like an "A-line" shape which is not as efficient at keeping in heat and looks slightly awkward. This is very minor and not that noticeable but just in case someone cares I will mention it.
I should have heeded the warnings of other reviewers. The jacket does run small and sizing up just made it fit strangely. The sleeve were also very long on my 52 frame and they dont cinch at the end so they looked silly. Patagonia missed the mark on this one. Had the potential to be a really cute go-to!

I truly would not recommend this coat to anyone. Although it is long and warm, there is a strip of fabric underneath the zipper and every SINGLE time I try to zip the coat, the zipper gets caught on the fabric every single time and it takes forever to get it unstuck.

Great looking coat for light winter
Nice color choices and looks great, good for work and casual. Not for extreme cold or hiking. Runs small- I usually wear small in Patagonia and am glad that I purchased a medium.
Judith, this particular coat has a "slim" fit, as opposed to our "regular" or "relaxed" fit garments so you chose well. We're glad to hear you're liking the coat for light winter casual use!
Wanted to love it...
I received this as a gift, and I was so excited. I was given a large and it was far too tight. The arms are way too snug, and I couldn't even bend my arms or move them around. I understand it is slim fitting, but I never wear over a medium in Patagonia, which was why I was so disappointed that the large was so tight. Will be returning.
Narrow shoulders, short arms
I am pretty consistently a size small in Patagonia and pretty much every where else. I'm 5'5" and 125lb-130lbs.

Warmth without weight!
I don’t know why I held off so long buying this jacket! It’s styling while still being warm, definitely go up a size as I believe because it is a slimmer fit, it runs on the small size. Also, you won’t be able to wear a chunky sweater underneath. Wish it had a hood, but I still love this jacket !
Fitted for sure
LIke other reviewers have said, the coat is a bit snug. I take a medium in most tops, but for jackets I like large for layering allowance. The large on this was snug in the arms and shoulders and when I had a light sweater on it made me look like a 5 pound sausage in at 3 pound skin. So I went for the XL which is perfect. I can wear a bulky sweater... Read More underneath and it looks like it fits better. Color is great (Balsamic). I worked up a sweat just trying on the two sizes, so I am sure it will be nice and warm when the temps fall in CT in the near future. Great coat and stylish but only 4 stars due to fit (I have never needed an XL in my life!). 160 pounds and 5 foot 7.
I love this coat!
I would love to say this coat was bought so I could summit mountains, but we’re being honest here: I’m a mom of two young kids, and I needed an easy, stylish, warm coat to wear on our nature walks and school drop-offs. The fit is amazing … when I’m outside, it keeps me warm, but one of my favorite things is that when I wear it inside, I don’t overh... Read Moreeat (it’s just so good at keeping you comfortable).

Only great if you don’t want to zip it!
My husband bought this coat for me last winter. I love the weight and the slim fit. However, the zipper gets stuck EVERY TIME I try to zip it. I forgot how utterly frustrating this was last year until I pulled it out again this season. I’ve worn it twice recently and have just left it unzipped both times.

Thanks for submitting a product review with your feedback on sizing. This is very helpful for our customers and designers. Please note, this parka is a slim fit which can make layering challenging when not sizing up.

Nice but not for petites
Really liked the style of this coat, but it just didn't fit; sleeves too long, length just too, well, long. Patagonia, I wish you would consider making petite sizes!
Hi Melissa. We're sorry this didn't fit as you expected. We have passed your feedback along regarding the inclusion of petite sizing in our products. Please feel free to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) this parka if you'd like to and haven't done so already!
Cute but the neck hits your face
Returned bc the neck piece kept hitting and poking my face every time I moved. Very lightweight and super cute.

So cute and comfy but...
I honesty could cry writing this and have exchanged this once before for a bigger size because I noticed that the armpits are extremely tight and constricting with the fabric. I went up to a medium and now it’s frumpy everywhere else and so tight in the armpits. This causes me to sweat and itch. I guess I’ll be returning it again and I keep telling...

Hi Amber, We are so sorry to hear about the odd fit of the Radalie Parka. If for any reason you're unhappy with our product we'd be glad to help facilitate a return for you. We'll be reaching out to you with more information on getting that jacket back to us.
Good not gteat
I just received my Radalie parka and I have to say the pics online are a bit misleading. I'm 5'3" and 120lbs and I was hoping for a better cut to this parka. Its too big in the upper arms and there is too much room in the waist, not a flattering silouette. Patagonia makes warm outerwear but they have to work on their style.
Thank you for your feedback and we're sorry about the pictures being misleading. We are always happy to give you the measurements of any item. You only need to reach out to us. We hope to be able to help you out in the future! If you would like to return this or have any questions, please [let us know](https://www.patagonia.com/customer-service.html).
I love this lighter weight parka. It looks great while still being functional. I am a slender 5’5” and purchased a small and I am happy with the fit. I could could easily layer over a normal sweater but probably not a thick sweatshirt. I live in Virginia so this will work all winter for me.
way smaller than previous sizing
This seemed like a good quality item but for the second time this year the sizing was totally different than previous Patagonia items. I have multiple XS jackets (two nano puffs, one better sweater) and they fit great and I can easily fir a sweatshirt underneath. However, this item (and another winter jacket I tried earlier this year) was extremely... Read More tight in the XS. Seems like Patagonia changed their sizing or something.
Warm, professional, and trendy!
This is my favorite Patagonia product I have. I love the fit, I love the color, I love the pockets, I love the length--there's hardly anything I don't like. The only thing I wish I would have had the option of is for a hood. This one doesn't have one, but I think it makes the coat more professional without it. I'm not even sure ... Read MoreI would buy it with a hood, but the option would have been nice (as hoods are almost a necessity here in WA).
Great coat but...
I purchased the burgundy color and it looks great. Love the fit and style. I always get compliments when I wear it.

For me, this is the perfect combination of warmth without the bulk. Sizing and fit work well for me. It's my go to on cool and cold days; I just modify what goes underneath. Love the green!

i never write reviews but i love this coat!! it’s slim, but still warm. the pockets keep my hands more warm than gloves. the multiple pockets are very convinent. since it is slim fit, i recommend sizing up if you want to wear a sweater underneath or extra room. this keeps me warm in WISCONSIN winters!
My all time favorite jacket
I have been looking for a jacket like this for a LONG time. I agree with the other reviewers that it runs slim, I sized up and it fits great. The mahogony color is so versitle, goes with black, brown and anything really. The coat is not down which helps keep the price point down BUT, it is extremely warm! I live in Maine and thought I wouldn't... Read More be able to wear it on the really cold days, but no problem, it keeps me toasty! Also, its light so I don't feel bogged down by it. Finally, the exterior breast pocket fits my phone/wallet perfectly allowing me to be hands free to help with my kiddos. I love this jacket and would highly recommend it!!!
Let’s talk about the zipper
If you’re one of those people that finds yourself often rushing out the door, this is not the coat for you. The zipper catches every. single. time. And it’s not easy to wrangle loose. I have missed the bus to work multiple times due to this. And this does not happen with any of my other countless Patagonias. The fit is great, 5’6” / 150 and got a m... Read Moreedium. Also to note, maybe due to my height or the size of my butt, it covers my butt standing fine but when I sit, it rides up above my butt
After trying to find a longer mid thigh jacket, this is a winner. I'm between sizes in Patagonia and purchased the larger size (medium) and still don't have much room to spare. I agree with others that this runs on the small side. For reference, my bust measures 36.5 and I can wear a thinner sweater or NFL fan jersey underneath this. F... Read Moreor those with more athletic arms and shoulders, it may be snug as it's cut trim in those areas. The weight is great for the mild NW winters here. It's rare that a heavier jacket is needed and this one is perfect for most days. One more caveat: the navy is a close match for NFL football team jerseys.
This is my new go-to coat. I bought the green and constantly get compliments. Definitely runs small. I'm 5'3" and usually a size 4/6 and I bought the medium. It's definitely a slim fit but is very flattering on. I only gave it 4 stars because it needs a hood. All winter coats should come equipped with a hood! Patagonia seems to ... Read Morebe a bit stingy when it comes to hoods on their parkas. It definitely isn't as warm as down, but this coat is more versatile, like a 3 season coat. I'll save the down coat for very cold days.
Great jacket on all fronts- except the zipper.
I'm 5'9" 140 lbs and love the fit, styling and weight of this jacket. I'm almost always a Patagonia medium, and this is no exception, though the arms are slimmer and bulkier underlayment fits snugly. (That said, it's cozy and warm, so bulky things are not necessary!) My only struggle with this jacket is its zipper- unlike s...

Warm and Stylish!
I had read so many reviews on this jacket before I purchase and was a little nervous that it wasn't going to fit. I am 5'5 and 125 pounds, and I ordered a medium. It fits great! Additionally, I live in WI and the winters can get really cold, so far this jacket has kept me plenty warm. Lastly, I am a fan of the style of the jacket, most wi...

Too slim fitting for any average female
I was looking so forward to getting this coat this season. I’m an athletic build, 5’6’’ and 150. I usually wear a Medium in all Patagonia jackets and button down shirts. I ordered a Large in this jacket to allow for layering room and post-pregnancy baby weight. It is so tight I would be lucky to fit more than a thin T-shirt under this. It’s so tigh... Read Moret in the arms ans shoulders but fits alright in the mid section and hips. I refuse to buy an XL as I think this sizing is all off. Usually Patagonia does great, and this jacket style is perfect for my needs, but unfortunately I’ll have to try a non-slim style instead. I’m hard pressed to think most women with any upper body muscle mass would fit in their normal Patagonia size.
This is my first Patagonia purchase and all I can say is WOW. This coat is incredibly soft and warm and has a super flattering cut. I’m officially official a Patagonia customer for life! I bought a medium and am 5’1 145lbs. If you wear bulky clothing I would size up. I can wear a hoodie underneath and still zip it up comfortably.
Cozy and classy
I love that this coat isn’t bulky, goes past my rear end and keeps me warm. I am 5’ 11” 160 lbs and I usually wear a size 8-10, despite that I wear a size large in this jacket. I like the style of the jacket in general......it’s casual and classy all at the same time. In general I feel like Patagonia tends to run small
Nice jacket and fit, but not warm
I live in Northern California, where it tends to drop to low 40s/high 30s at the peak of Winter, and while I love the fit and look of the jacket, this jacket is not warm even with a warm base layer and sweater underneath. If you live somewhere where it doesn't get that cold and you dont need to be significantly warm, or you yourself tend to ru... Read Moren pretty warm, then this jacket might be for you. However, being someone who tends to get cold easily, this jacket did not do much for me in terms of warmth and when I wore it on a trip over the winter where it rained, it definitely was not water repellent. If you're looking for a warm jacket, I would look at the down jackets. I got the Down Sweater Hoody and it is SO warm and comfortable that I don't want to take it off when I get home.

If by slim fit, you mean no arm movement
This parka is a great weight for under a raincoat and has a really nice design. But I always wear a medium in Patagonia, and most other brands. I'm 5'10" and slim.

Bad Fit - Poor Tailoring
I've owned 9 or 10 Patagonia jackets over the past 25 or so years. I'm 5'4" and weigh 120-125lbs, and have always been a size small. I tried the small and while the main body fit well from my mid-ribs down, above that was tight and unforgiving. The medium felt comfortable and I could wear a t-shirt and light sweater. However, wh... Read Moreen I brought the jacket home and wore it around, I found that the medium was so big from my ribs down, that it was shapeless and if I sat the jacket pooched out. It is supposed to have a tailored look, but it looks just the opposite - like a bag. I'm returning it and looking for something different. Sorry, Patagonia, but this jacket is poorly designed w/r/t fit.
Awesome jacket for fall to winter
I just got this coat and I've already put it through its paces, and I'm very happy with the results. First- I'm 140lbs, 5'4, and I ordered a medium. I'd call the fit slightly loose. When I am wearing multiple layers, I still have room for a scarf inside the jacket, which is perfect for winter. It comes down a bit lower than... Read More mid-thigh, about 6" from my knees. I've worn it on long dog walks in 30-degree weather with total comfort, and I've worn it on 40-degree hikes and was a little bit warm, which is expected. The navy color is matte and very flattering. It's extremely soft and comfortable, and there's plenty of flexibility in the arm/elbow area. The two-way zipper is ideal for an active person, and you can tell the zipper is high quality. The pockets are decent, my cell phone easily fits along with keys and some tissues, and when I put my hands in the pockets my wrists are covered. I chose this jacket because it wasn't feathered, as I've hated the feathers that shed on my clothes, and this does not disappoint- but it's still incredibly light weight. No regrets!!
Warm and Stylish - Great Jacket!
10/10. Keeps me warm in the cold New England winters. In my case size ran true to size and allowed for sweatshirt room underneath, but the jacket is thin enough for a larger winter coat to go over top. The coat is form-fitting and stylish.

I really like this coat. It’s very comfortable. The sleeves are a little long on me and the middle section is a smidge tighter than I would like. There’s still room for a sweater underneath.

I just purchased this coat. I live in California so don't need something super warm as a rule, but have some travel coming up to colder places this winter and was looking for something warm, nice looking and not too bulky.

Warmer more substantial than Fiona -same femme fit
I just tried this on in a store - it runs a tad bigger Han Fiona. I'm small in Patagonia but depending on your shoulders and breast size,you may want to get one size down and try. I was xs. The grey is a gorgeous silvery shade not as dark as depicted on the website.
Great fall/early winter jacket!
Great fit,keeps me warm,not too bulky,very flattering! This seems like a great transition jacket from fall to winter. Don't think it will be warm enough for the extreme winter temps in New England but I love it so far! Highly recommended- wish I could get it in every color!
