Patagonia Women's Radalie Parka

True To Size
September 12, 2020

Warm and looks nice

The one thing I would say is that the color didnt look exactly like it did in the photos, but it really looks great on me so I dont mind. Just a darker olive.

September 6, 2020

The perfect coat!

Love the slimming , comfy fit and the olive color. Will have this coat until I die!

September 4, 2020

Light but Warm

This is a comfortable coat which is not at all bulky. It is a bit tight fitting, but not enough to be a deal breaker. The color is lovely.

September 3, 2020

Light and warm

This is a lighter and better option than parkas by other brands

Love this coat

I had a coat like this before but loaned it to someone and it was torn. I liked it so much and was excited to get another

Great everyday winter jacket; flimsy material

This is a wonderful jacket for day to day running around in the cold WI winters. I like that it is warm without any extra bulk. It does run slim, so you may want to size up. I am 5'7" and 130-135 lbs and a size small has enough room for the regular winter bulk of long sleeved shirts and thin sweaters - but nothing too heavy like a thick w... Read Moreool sweater. You do need to be quite careful with the material - my first one had a run in it after wearing it only a week and I have no idea how it happened or what I caught it on. If it weren't for that, I'd give it 5 stars. Patagonia service is second to none and sent me a replacement, although the snazzy purple I originally purchased was on sale by then and gone so I had to settle for a different color.

Comfortable and Warm Multi versatile Jacket

Love this jacket!! Bought for my Mom too. We wear all the time.

Perfect besides the zipper

I have this jacket in green and I absolutely love it. The only hang up I have, like everyone else, is the zipper. It is CONSTANTLY getting stuck. Im in and out of a cooler all day for work and it will get stuck multiple times a day. Its not worth it sometimes to take it off, Ill just leave it on. Other than that, I have no qualms whatsoever. I wear... Read More it daily and get compliments on it all the time!

Okay coat

I was very excited to purchase this coat, only to be disappointed. Every time I zip it, the zipper gets stuck on material surrounding it. For the price I paid, I am very disappointed.

Love this coat!

I always wear an XS in Patagonia, but based on other reviews decided to order a size up, and Im glad I did. It fits perfectly when wearing a sweatshirt or thick sweater without feeling bulky. I am 5 ft and it comes down to just above my knees. I've had zero issues with the zipper since I got it a month ago. I live in Indianapolis, so its been ...

March 6, 2020

Too Small

I recently bought the Radalie parka and was so disappointed in the fit. It runs small. Very tight in the chest area. I wish there was an XXL option . Sadly I had to return it.

March 5, 2020

Zipper won't work

I got this jacket last week and love the fit. Unfortunately, after two days of wear, the zipper won't work. It splits every time I try to zip it.

March 4, 2020

Runs small but I love it!

I decided to purchase this jacket despite mixed reviews based on the fact that it is made from recycled materials, is down free, and looks nice. I originally ordered an XS but had to exchange for a small because it was quite slim. This was surprising since I normally wear an XS in jackets and coats. The zipper on mine seems to operate very smoothly... Read More, so either they fixed the issue that many complained about, I just got lucky, or maybe you just need to focus on what you're doing and not be a spaz (speaking for myself) when you're getting dressed... I can see how if you're not careful the overlapping material *could* get caught in the zipper. Anyway... Love the eco friendly construction, flattering fit, and warmth of this down free (cruelty minimized) Parka. The sage color is very nice looking and I think shall coordinate nicely with most colors in my wardrobe.

Love this Parka. Very light weight but warm. The color is great Oyster White.

February 23, 2020

Kinda Small

I found this coat to run small. I am a routine size small (4-6) in all Patagonia and other brands. The small in this coat was a perfect snug fit with only a t-shirt under, it would have been uncomfortable to wear any other layers. Returning for a size up.

February 20, 2020

That zipper tho!

I LOVE everything about this coat, but good gravy...the zipper is a deal breaker. It never fails when I'm running late for a meeting it gets stuck and I have to put down everything in my arms and wrestle the teeth out of the fabric. Please, please fix this, Patagonia.

Very disappointed- zipper issues

I was thrilled to receive this parka for Christmas from my husband, it's light weight and comfortable not buy this jacket!

Great jacket

I'm right in between a med/large but since this jacket goes around my waist (and is a slim fit), and I sized up to a large. It fits great, and washes well.

Close, but not quite it

I really REALLY wanted to love this coat! I love how it looks but the fit is a little off for me...I’m 5’4” and 120 lbs with average shoulder width and the small is a little too snug in the shoulders.

Hate this coat

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.

Thank you for reaching out to us about the zipper problems you're having with your Radalie Parka.

Love except for zippers.

The length, weight and color of the coat is perfect (I have the oyster white). I love everything about this coat except for the zippers.

I am an XS everything at Patagonia except in this coat. Its SUPER tight on my hips. Size up if you have any curvature whatsoever on your body. This coat is made for stick humans.

Warmth and style

This light weight jacket is beautiful and environmentally correct. 🥰

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.

Response from Patagonia
January 23, 2020

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!

December 25, 2019

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.

December 25, 2019

Radalie Parka

It runs a little small around the waist, but that’s due to my weight distribution.

December 24, 2019

Perfect warmth

Just the right amount of fluff to stay warm in a typical Colorado winter!

December 23, 2019

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. I don't have narrow shoulders but I don't think of myself as having broad shoulders either. This coat was really tight in the shoulders and the arms seems a bit short - which is nuts because sleeves are always too... Read More long for me! As always the customer service was awesome and a medium is already enroute. I just hope it's not too big in the middle or too long... As far as the coat itself, it is thin but I think the price and description make it clear that that's what you're getting.

December 19, 2019

Great fit!

I was a little worried about about the jacket being able to zip over my hips because I haven't had the best luck with long Patagonia jackets. I'm average height and weight but am pear shaped. I got a large and it fits in the hips when zipped, but it's a bit big on top which is okay because it leaves room for a thick sweater underneat... Read Moreh. I think the silhouette helps the fit and gives a flattering look. I like that it's not very puffy, but still really warm!

If you want warmth and comfort...

Then buy this jacket! It would have gotten 5 stars if it weren’t for the zippers! The front zipper as well as the two hand warmer zippers often get stuck. Initially, I assumed it was a user error (as my family and I never had issues with our Patagonia products) unfortunately, a user error it is not. Apart from the pesky zippers, this jacket is per...

Love this Parka!!!

Took this coat with me to Cincinnati in the middle of December and sat outside for 4 hours for a football game in 32 degree weather. I was SO WARM! I was not cold at all! I love the double closure zipper which makes it easier to walk in this parka as well as sit down. I recommend this buy.

December 14, 2019

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 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.

Tiny coat

VERY slim fitting! I am normally an xs/s. I bought a small. I can only wear thinner shirts with this coat. No hoodies or sweaters will fit comfortably with it zipped. It’s a beautiful, warm coat so I ended up not returning it. Size up if you buy!

November 5, 2019

Great coat!

Got this for my gf and she loves it. She had been trying it on at every store, and so it had been a long term want for her. She looked great in it so I had to get it for her.

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.

Great parka

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.

September 15, 2019

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.

A flattering thigh length jacket!

I’ve searched for years to find a jacket like this! It’s super flattering, even for larger bust ladies. Love the burgundy color, tall collar, and fleece lined pockets. Highly recommend! It is slim fit, but it fits true to size when you consider the cut.

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.

Versatile Jacket

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'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... Read Moreo many other Patagonia coats, it has a hemline that overlaps the zipper (to cover it for styling purposes, presumably?), and it gets stuck in the zipper EVERY TIME I put it on (or take it off). Really frustrating.

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’s casual and classy all at the same time. In general I feel like Patagonia tends to run small

Amazing jacket! Just the right weight and warmth for D.C. winters and great for a commute.

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.

My favorite jacket!

I received this as a gift from my husband two years ago and it is my favorite. I’m 5’ 2” 130 lbs and I have the size small. It’s fitted design is very flattering.

Bought for the color and the price

I've been wearing a M for 2 days. 5"7', 145 lbs. I bought it on sale at a Black Friday event and love the deep mahogany color. I have to agree with other reviewers concerns. The sleeves are a little short and the polyester fill is not nearly as warm as down.

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. Trying this coat on, I almost felt like I was going to tear the shoulder seams, the fabric was so tight and the fit so narrow. Absolutely no room or give for movement. Ret...

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.

What happened?

Well designed puffer parka.

Patagonia figured out that channels sewn in different sizes,shapes and directions can be flattering to the usual puffy jacket. I have 3 Patagonia feather jackets and love them all.

Great coat!

This coat is great! It's the perfect length and the fit is snug,which is great for colder weather. It has a feminine cut and looks really classy. I like the lining on the pockets,it is a very soft material and makes the coat feel even cozier.

perfect coat

I bought the green version in November and since then I have worn it in California (50 degrees),New York city (40-55F),Massachussets (30F),and Santa Fe (25F).

Nice Looking Sort of Dressy Coat

I am 5'10" 150#. I bought this in the store. The Large fit me perfectly except the sleeves are very tight at the elbow. Very uncomfortable and no room for any layering. I have skinny arms,by the way.

I don't think this coat is great for really cold weather.

An awesome coat!!

What a great coat!! Warm but not too bulky. Love it!! The added bonus is the mission behind this company. They are kind to animals and the environment,which is the main reason I bought this coat. Well done,Patagonia!!

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!
