Patagonia Men's Silent Down Jacket

Great jacket

An excellent mid-weight down jacket. I confess I like it so much I own 2 of them.

November 29, 2021


Light weight and very warm.

November 27, 2021

It works

Not sure if the jacket runs true to size, since I have nothing to compare it to. However, it fits fine, and it fits snug at the wrists and waist, helping to keep the cold out. I recently moved from the Gulf Coast of Florida to northern New Jersey, and realized that I needed really warm clothing. The jacket was perfect, and the quality seems really ... Read Moregood. Since I have only worn it 5 or 6 times, I reserve a wholehearted endorsement, but what I have experienced so far would encourage me to return to Patagonia for future purchases.

Just what I was looking for.

November 27, 2021

Not warm enough

I used to have a Patagonia down jacket that I used all the time it was very warm and comfortable it burned up in a house fire. But the new one is not as warm. Also I liked the inside big pocket on the old one and this one doesnt have one.

Hello John! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're sorry to hear that the Silent Down Jacket wasn't quite as warm as you were hoping. With that said, its not the warmest down jacket we offer. We'd suggest taking a look at our [Men's Hi-Loft Down Sweater Hoody]( as its a warmer alternative.

November 22, 2021


I've lived in WI my entire life and winters can get very cold. I always found myself cold and shivering when outside in the winter even after buying expensive jackets, that all changed when I got my first Patagonia. This jacket is the ABSOLUTE BEST. I literally tell me wife daily how great this jacket is even after owning it for a couple of ye... Read Morears. It keeps you the perfect temperature whether you're in your car driving or standing outside in 20 degree temperatures. The hood also fits perfectly while many other brands make hoods that fall over your face or are too small. Jacket also has drawstrings to pull the waistband in keeping the warmth close to your body. This jacket made me a Patagonia fan for life. It's like wearing a stylish sleeping bag that keeps you the perfect temperature; you'll never want to take it off!

Love it

I love my jacket. Super warm. Lightweight and flexible.

October 17, 2021

Beautiful jacket!

I bought this jacket for my husband and its perfect! Beautifully made and looks incredible! He loved it and feels great wearing it!

September 8, 2021

Just Right

Wanted a more traditional looking down coat with Warmth being the most important criteria. Didn't want an artic level coat as I tend to layer for warmth anyways. This seems like a good alternative to the many sweater type coats Not too bulky. Has a collar stored hood which makes the collar extra padded when in stored position which I really Li... Read Moreke as my neck is always cold on windy chilly days. Don't use hoods often but, great to know its there if it gets cold and heavy snow.

September 7, 2021

warm and light

Very warm, especially for the light weight. Love the cuffs and the hood that zips away. Seems sturdy though I have not worn it much yet. Great coat.

July 29, 2021

Warm but not wateroroof

Great in the winter as warm and light, but let's water through on shoulders and arms when it's raining.

Hello Thomas, we appreciate you taking the time to share your findings on the Men's Silent Down Jacket. While the shell of the jacket is treated with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, it is not waterproof. If you are not fully satisfied with the jacket, you are welcome to [return]( it. For a waterproof down jacket option, you may want to consider the Men's Tres 3-in-1 Parka.

May 17, 2021

Very comfy

Plenty warm and very comfy, I'd be careful about wearing near campfires, I don't think the outershell would hold up well to small embers, might want to wait for a sale, I feel like it could be a little cheaper. Overall, still satisfied with the purchase.

April 26, 2021

Super cozy, great color

Very happy with it.

April 14, 2021


I love this jacket sooooo much! It's great for most weather types that require a jacket. I can even throw on a t-shirt with it and run out the door if need be. I would totally recommend this and I feel very comfortable knowing this jacket will stay with me for a number of years.

March 27, 2021

Very cozy.

Sleeves are long enough for my long arms. Thin down, so I put a shell over it for cold weather. But also thin enough to wear inside. So cozy.

February 23, 2021

Fantastic Jacket!

Ive never worn such an amazing jacket. I love the softness, its so light-weight, and the warmth is superb. I honestly dont want to take the jacket off. Im now buying as much of my gear as possible from Patagonia.

February 12, 2021

Everything and more

This is literally the best article of clothing that I own! Super lightweight, warm, water resistant , ample pocket space... high quality zipper and the hood are my fave features. I own the khaki color and I constantly get compliments on it. This jacket is a jacket your have your whole life.

Warm and Versatile Down Jacket

I purchased this jacket for more warmth in winter than the down sweater provides me. The jacket has a hood which is concealed in the collar but easily accessible. Down in the jacket has been recycled from other outer wear. My only objection is the outer material which I don't care for as much as the outer material used for the down sweater.

Response from Patagonia
March 3, 2021

Thanks for the excellent feedback, Chris! The outer fabric of this jacket is what gives it the "Silent" name. You may appreciate a warmer winter down jacket like our Jackson Glacier, Hi-Loft Down Hoody, or Fitz Roy Down Hoody. [Reach out]( if you have questions about returning, exchanging or trading in your jacket.

Quiet Insulation for Archery

511 245; this is a great piece - looks great for casual; can be compressed and easily kept in a dry bag for cold weather fishing; was a KEY part of my late season tree stand archery layering this past year. The silent down is vastly more quiet than the typical swishy material on, for example, my down sweater. I used a base layer, thermal layer, thi... Read Mores jacket and a specialized hunting fleece over it and was comfortable while stationary in sub 15F degrees in windy conditions for 3-5 hours at a time. Wonderful insulation piece.

Perfect puffer

Awesome! Fits perfect, very warm but dont get too hot as the temp warms. Love the matte finish!

January 27, 2021

Light but warm

I just wore it once but I really like it. It was light and I could not feel the cold.

January 26, 2021

Perfect Fit

I gave this jacket to my brother as a gift. He loves it and said that it fits perfectly.

Perfect Jacket for PNW late winter

January 21, 2021

Awesome jacket

I love that the jacket is lightweight, but yet super warm. I love the feature of the hood and that you stowaway in the collar. The jacket looks cool either way with the hood and without the hood. I hike a lot and this jacket has perfect mobility that I need on cold hikes. Doesnt look bad either when hanging out in town.

January 21, 2021

Just right

So far, so good. The jacket is comfortable and warm. The weather has been cold, but not very cold. I'm looking forward to seeing how it does then. I like the jacket a lot.

January 15, 2021

Warm enough for 5-10F

My main jacket is a park from LuLulemon but wanted something lightweight with the same effect. This jacket is perfect. Thin- but, dont let that fool you.

January 8, 2021

Great down jacket

Love it! Looks and feels great! Super soft and warm.

Performance Highlight

Awesome coat, lightweight, warm, very comfortable, easy to move while wearing it, wind doesn't cut through you, pockets work well, Superb!

January 3, 2021

Very Warm

Bought this jacket for my husband. He is 6'3" and wears an XL size. This jacket fits him perfectly. He wears it without a sweater - only a long sleeve shirt. He is happy with the jacket as it keeps him warm but not overheated.

January 1, 2021

Fabulous and warm and the hood is awesome!

Love the coat and its warm and perfect for an upgrade from my other Patagonia jackets

December 31, 2020

Warm winter jacket

Bought as a gift for my husband. He loves it. Something nice to wear to work when its cold out. We had the thinner version of this jacket. He wanted the next thickness up to keep him warmer on the really cold days. He is often in freezers for work. This keeps him warm when he is in one or just out on the street.

Pure comfort

Light weight warm

Jacket is light weight but warm and wind blocking.

December 29, 2020

My dad loves it

This was a gift to my 72-year-old dad. He absolutely loves it. The material is super soft to touch, light and warm.

December 23, 2020

Not as warm as hoped

I purchased this jacket because I was looking for something warmer than my Nano Air Hoody. Unfortunately, on the first time wearing it for a short walk in semi windy 40 degree (F) weather, it wasnt nearly as warm as I had hoped. In fact, I think the nano air may be warmer due to the ability to more tightly sinch its hood. (I switched back to the ai... Read Morer and took the same walk and felt warmer). That said, it seems like a nice jacket. I appreciate the ability to tighten it around the waist. I am 6 foot 2 inches, 175 lbs and usually buy a medium or large in Patagonia products. For this jacket, the large seemed just a tad too big for me, but the medium probably would have been too small. I think, if I didnt already own the Nano Air, I would have been perfectly happy with this jacket. But I dont really need two jackets in the same warmth class. Sadly, Ill be returning this garment and looking for something a bit warmer.

December 19, 2020

Nice jacket but...

This jacket would be fine if you only plan on wearing it to the store in cool weather. It's very soft, the fit and look are excellent and it feels weightless. I like it has ample pocket space, the cuff design is great and I certainly appreciate recycled materials being used. But this jacket is only going to keep you warm to possibly 40 degrees... Read More, it's not going to survive a winter in the Finger Lakes region of Upstate NY. I have a high metabolism and don't need a heavyweight parka to keep warm even in the coldest weather. I was just out in 16 degrees and you could feel the cold cut right through this jacket. I'm not a fan of hoods, even my ski jackets have removeable hoods and are only attached when the weather on the slopes is really nasty. So, I liked this jacket had the option of tucking the hood in the collar. The hood in this jacket is insulated so once it's tucked away, the collar is overstuffed, firm and feels like you have one of those travel pillows people have around their necks on air flights. It's rather annoying even when the jacket is not zipped up completely. The collar should be larger to accommodate the insulated hood. The outer shell feels flimsy and I have my doubts it would hold up well. And as others have indicated, I had to pluck a feather sticking out shortly after I unpacked the jacket. I have always been of the opinion you pay a little more for Patagonia products as they are well designed, of the highest quality and will be serviceable for a long period of time. I think they missed the mark on this one, particularly at this price point.

We appreciate you taking the time to share your valuable and insightful thoughts with our team. Reviews are one way that we work on improving our designs, so we appreciate this feedback. For an alternative, we'd recommend checking out the [Men's Tres Jacket]( Not only does it come in at 177 g's of down insulation versus the Silent Down's 109 g's, it also has a removeable hood and outer shell which will do great at preventing drafts.

We have been big fans of Patgonia for years. Great product with equally impressive customer service.

December 3, 2020


I will start this by saying it is easily the most comfortable jacket Ive tried on. I say tried on because ultimately I return the jacket, BUMMER!!! I purchased this jacket originally in XXL which had a perfect fit across the chest and shoulders but the midsection was just too big, lots of empty space and room for air to get in. I got the XXL becaus... Read Moree I have a Down sweater in XXL and that fits great but it is a much slimmer fit on the midsection than usual, I buy XL jackets and L in the Workwear line. So, I got the XL silent down which fit perfect in the midsection but left the shoulders too tight and the arms too tight(couldnt really wear a ling sleeve shirt under it). WHATTA BUMMER! Did I say that already? If Patagonia could make me this jacket with an XXL top with an XL midsection I would buy two of them, even if it had the down sweater cut I would be golden. I kept the down sweater because it was just a better fit overall but I really wanted to keep this silent down jacket. This is mostly a problem with me and not the jacket, I have larger lats and shoulders so its been difficult finding the right cut. Patagonias workwear line in size L fits me great every time. Make this silent down in the workwear cut even! :)

December 3, 2020

Tight small fit

All my other Patagonia jackets I own are between a L - XL. This jacket felt like the sizing was between a M and a L. Ran very small and I had to return it.

Very comfortable and with the hood and waist cinch straps you can make it snug so no drafts. That is key !

I had high hopes for this jacket especially after the representative on the phone told me how great it is.

Warm and comfortable!

My favorite thing about this jacket is that it is can be worn when it is either cool out or extremely cold. Unzipped, the jacket is great for morning walks in the low 60s.

I never want to take it off

I just bought this for walking around NYC in the cold. I was out last week with a t-shirt on underneath in 20-30 degree weather and I was perfectly warm wearing the jacket. It's extremely comfortable and love the option of folding in the hood or having it out

Overall, I really like the jacket. Super light, fits well, but It's not quite as warm as I thought it would be so I layer with a vest.

Comfortable, quiet, warm

I was surprised at how soft and comfortable this is! Silent down in more ways than one. The fit is a tad more reg than slim, which is nice as this is more of a around-town piece. Recommended.

Best Winter coat I've ever owned

This coat is everything I'd hoped it would be and more. The insides of the sleeps are very soft and the warmth is wonderful. Overall design of this coat is great. Definitely a step above the Down Sweater. I echo all of the other reviewers - this is well worth the money

Patagonia never disappoints!

I’ve owned the same Patagonia jacket for years now and it’s made winters so much more enjoyable. So I figured I’d take a risk and buy one as a gift for my super picky husband since he has almost NO appropriate winter clothing. He loves everything about it!! The color is nice, the fit is perfect and it’s lightweight but sooo warm. I was a little ner... Read Morevous when I saw how thin it was but he’s worn it comfortably in temperatures down to about 10 degrees. With a base layer underneath it would probably be warm in temps much lower than that - though we haven’t had cold enough weather to test that theory out yet. I don’t think I’d ever buy a winter jacket from any other store honestly. Patagonia is the best!

Toasty and Perfect

As with most Patagonia products the silent down jacket is fantastic. Warm, cozy, and versatile for most cold weather situations you can encounter in urban or great outdoors setting. For reference I am 6'2" 185 lbs; the medium fit perfect for me from arm length to shoulder spread. Even with several layers on underneath. I really like the f...

Highly recommend this jacket, this will be your new cold weather staple!

December 11, 2019

Very warm but with some flaws

The jacket is light and warm but the back side of the jacket should have more sections for the down. The down is pushed to the sides every time you rest your back on a chair or wall. The down also forces its way out of the jacket more frequently than my other down jacket from Columbia in everyday activity.

Thank you for your feedback on the Men's Silent Down jacket, Haolin. We're sorry to hear how the down is shifting and escaping through the fabric. You are welcome to [return]( the jacket at any time for either a replacement or a refund.

By far the best winter jacket I’ve ever owned. It is so soft and warm and ETHICAL. Love it. 👍

It’s a “Must Have”

I love this jacket. The material is much softer than the typical nano puff or other down jacket materials I have felt from Patagonia. The extra elastic/felt lining around the wrists is also a great feature. The jacket is very warm. I like the felt lining in the pockets on one side to keep the top of my hands warm while hands are in the pockets. ... Read MoreOne of my favorite features is the ability to hide the hood. Going into the office or wearing the jacket around the office it is great to be able to have the hood hidden for a more “appropriate” look while I can always pull the hood out when on my various out door adventures. The only reason I gave the jacket 4 stars rather than five is because of how “poofy” or “puffy” the hood collar gets when the hood is zipped up and closed. Not sure that is something that can be easily fixed. I imagine it’s not but none the less it is the aesthetic pitfall. Overall I would recommend this jacket to anyone who wants a very warm dry weather (Okay in the snow) down jacket. Great for in the office, in the woods or in the mountains!

Best down coat out there

Never had much care for down filled garments or pillows. This coat is amazing because it’s light, soft and quality is %100.

Patagonia hit a home run with this jacket

This is the perfect cold weather jacket. It’s much warmer than my nano puff and down sweater. I’m 5’11” and 190 lbs and it fits like a glove.

November 26, 2019

Simply the best!

This jacket keeps me warm on the street and I don’t overheat in it when I’m riding on the subway. Only thing it’s missing is a second inside pocket, but otherwise it’s the best winter coat I’ve owned. Thinking of moving towards a synthetic filler but I appreciate the recycled down. Looking forward to wearing it all winter long.

Silent Down Jacket

I returned my jacket because i figured out it was going to be to heavy duty for what I will be using it for, as I live in Houston TX I decided it would not get cold enough down here often enough.

Silent down jacket, best puffy ever

I have been wanting a windproof down jacket for years, it is better than I expected. It is the most comfortable down I have worn. The material is soft and the fit is very comfortable. I spend most of my work and free time in the elements and have had all sorts of jackets. I highly recommend this one!

Great Fit

Perfect jacket for winter, warm and comfortable with a great look. The sleeve cuff adds to the versatility.

Amazing Jacket

I was looking for a jacket to wear when it’s cold when I don’t want to layer. Something warm and comfortable. This jacket is perfect! Really comfortable to wear and the liner isn’t really slick like other puff jackets. Unqualified recommendation from me.

Very lightweight, but keeps you warm. Also, very breathable for not so cold days :)

To start, I’m not on the puffy jacket hipster movement. I recently left Northern California and moved to a colder climate. My fleeces were no longer doing the trick.

Wonderful warm jacket!

I have been using this jacket for a few weeks and it has kept me warm in temperatures down to the low 40's so far (haven't had any colder weather). It feels well worth the price, especially knowing that it is made of recycled materials and is from a company that has a strong record of sustainable practices.

Silent Down Jacket

So far, so good. Really like the material but I can see the potential for snags and not holding up as well as a heavier nylon. Hopefully, the durability is as good as most Patagonia stuff. I've worn it down to as low as single digits with a heavy sweater and it's great. Not sure I'd spend hours outside in it at that temp but at 15-2... Read More0 it'd be fine. Patagonia sizing is always a challenge for me being that I have longish arms and need the sleeve length of an XL. This leaves the body of the jacket a bit large and slightly baggy. It is easy to layer under but this jacket might be a bit too big to fit under my normal shell. I typically wear a down sweater under my shell when there is snow. I think this jacket is warmer than the down sweater, which is what I was hoping for. Jury's still out on durability but this jacket has the same zipper pulls that I have on a pack which I've broken a couple of pulls on.Hope they've made some improvements in the material. I've never been a fan of zip-in hoods and this one is no exception. They tend to bulk up the collar too much but at least this one seems to be nicely stuffed with down and can serve in an emergency over a beanie. Overall, I like it so far. Nice, soft down jacket good for temps down to around zero if you layer underneath. Colder than that and I break out the heavy duty.

Small Shoulders

This jacket is great in many ways, and I really wanted to like it. However, the shoulders were just too tight, and I returned it. I am 5'8" and 160 and have always purchased size medium from Patagonia since their cuts are generous in the shoulders and tapered in the waist to accommodate a climber's build. Well, this jacket is a tube ... Read Moreand even the arms were too tight. Based on the narrow shoulders and tight arms, it would seem they designed this jacket for a distance runner, not a climber, paddler, surfer, etc.

Favorite jacket

6’2 180lbs large fits perfect. Love this jacket. Really comfy and warm. Tested it in some single digits and so far so warm. The convertible hood is bulky when stored but doubles as insulation so not a bad thing. My lady friend bought the women’s version and is in love as well.

Hi Perry, thanks for taking the time to provide this feedback! We're sorry to hear about the disappointment. The Silent Down Jacket isn't the warmest coat we offer. If you're looking for something that provides a bit more warmth we'd suggest taking a look at the [Men's Hi-Loft Down Sweater Hoody](

Is it normal for feathers to pop out?

I bought my Silent Down jacket last week, and it is the first down jacket I have ever owned. It is really warm and a really nice looking jacket.

I started inspecting the coat more and noticed another feather sticking out of the shoulder too. Is... Read More this expected with down jackets from Patagonia?

Response from Patagonia
November 21, 2019

Thanks for your feedback and we glad to hear you've been enjoying the jacket. As far as those feathers, yes, this is normal for the jacket to shed. From time to time, the quills from the feathers can create tiny punctures that can result in a feather sneaking out. We advise carefully trying to push the feather back in, or gently removing the feather while being careful to not make the hole bigger. This shouldn't affect the warmth or performance of the jacket, but if you ever feel it has, or you are unsatisfied in any way, please feel free to [send]( that back to us.

This is by far the best jacket I've ever owned. I live in Wisconsin and this was one of our coldest winters yet with temps reaching -50, no joke. This jacket has completely blown me away, it keeps your body just the right temperature and the inside pocket is really helpful as well. I can literally wear a t-shirt underneath it and be completely... Read More warm in 20 degree weather. It's one of those jackets you put on and don't want to take off. Having a hood was a huge deciding factor for buying this jacket and the hood is phenomenal, as soon as you put the hood up your head is warm. I use to have to wear layers under my previous jackets and I would find myself still feeling cold, now my upper half is always the warmest part. I am now a Patagonia customer for life. The ONLY drawback to this jacket is that the neckline gets dirty pretty easily from wear. Do yourself a favor and get this jacket, it will be one of the best purchases you've made. Ps- I'm 5'8" at 145 lbs and the small fits perfectly.

Like my favorite comforter in jacket form

I’m 5’9” and 200lbs and the Large size fits me perfectly. I’m really impressed with this jacket. To be honest I initially blew off the “silent down” line name as a gimmick (despite the fact that I’ve been a Pata customer for over a decade and should know better than the fact that they don’t do gimmicks for sales numbers, so far as I can tell). I b... Read Moreought the jacket as a solution for when I don’t want to layer under a Down Sweater, it’s too cold for just a shirt under a Down Sweater, but not cold enough to warrant my circa 2006 Nanuk Arctic-temperature-level jacket (that jacket is great but only useful if the temperature is below 25F). This jacket really is much quieter than traditional materials that are used on other down outerwear and I was surprised at how much I enjoy the soft hand of the materials used for both interior and exterior construction. It seems to be at least as water resistant as my Down Sweaters but is much warmer. Patagonia changed their fits a few years ago to be more athletic, which is great for some folks but as a dude on the shorter and thicker side, with arm lengths proportionate to height (I wear a 33” dress shirt) this jacket is cut perfectly for me. The arm lengths are right on and it has the older boxier cut I like, however if you are on the thinner side or have an athlete’s V-shaped torso, you may find it not trim enough for your taste. It is roomy enough I can still wear a sweater or fleece if I want and still be comfortable. It has excellent wind stopping ability and the recessed soft cuffs on the sleeves really keep in the warmth on the arms. The storable insulated hood is a really nice touch in cold, windy conditions and is a great option if you want to be prepared for cold days but don’t want a hood flapping around all the time. It’s my favorite winter piece I’ve picked up in quite awhile. I bought the cargo green color (which on the website appears more brown than in person) and I like that it pairs well with jeans, khakis, or navy blue pants, which what I usually wear. I feel like Pata really hit it out of the park with this jacket.

I love my new Silent Down Jacket. Already had a Nano Puff and this is a nice step up for cold, windy days. Bulky, but not obnoxiously so, actually a slimmer profile than I expected. Medium size, 5'10" 155lb, can have a vest or sweatshirt layer under with no trouble. Great for dawn patrol dog walks. :-)

Great jacket

I spent about a month in Europe during January where the weather was between 37-46 degrees and drizzling and this jacket kept me really warm. Not to mentioned how comfortable it was.

Excellent with a minor suggestion

I bought this jacket after several send backs to Patagonia because of the constant inconsistent sizing with everything Patagonia. This Medium jacket fits me perfect.

Read Moreonly compaint is the hood. I wear it out because when I roll it up and zip it in to the jacket it feels cumbersome and like I’m wearing a neck brace. I’d eliminate that feature and the hood or just make the hood premanently outside the jacket. I have yet to wear the hood because if I need something on my head I wear a baseball cap or if its cold enough a stocking cap or knit beanie.

Super comfortable

For noodling around town or for "easy" camping and hiking, this jacket can't be beat. I wore it when last December throughout the Southwest, when it got down into the 20s at night and with an ooold Capaline thermal weight, it was plenty warm. The most comfortable Patagonia I've owned.

Silent warmth

The jacket is warm. After walking a few blocks with a sweater underneath, I was almost sweating on the train. The jacket is so light that you wouldn't believe how warm it is.

Read More've only worn this jacket a few times so I can't speak to the durability of the fabric, but it's Patagonia, so I trust that we'd work something out if need be. I like that you are able to conceal the hood, however I wish the zipper appeared in a more hidden fashion when the hood is tucked away. Not a deal breaker, but just a suggestion. All in all am happy with the purchase.
