Patagonia Women's Silent Down Parka

True To Size
February 28, 2021

Great jacket

I really liked this jacket. Its very warm. I did go up a size, but more because I like to layer and it felt better with the layers in a bigger size.

Thin but Warm!

Thin but very warm for Midwest winters. Great length. Great buy!

February 27, 2021

As advertised

I bought this coat to walk my dog in the early morning and late in the evening. I layer my clothes for the walk so the coat is a little snug but warm.

February 27, 2021

Warm, not too puffy and comfortable

Down makes this a very warm coat. But unlike previous down puffers this one does not shed inside on my usual black clothing. It is warmer than my Nanos and I love that it has a hood but also that the hood tucks away. The fit is trim so you dont look like a house in the coat, even with the XL size. Good color choices. Very happy with this coat.

Good I between temperatures coat

The coat is a slim fit. I weigh 125 and needed the large as the medium was too tight around the stomach. In their longer coat, I took a medium. Very comfortable coat and good for temperatures in 30s and 40s.

Love it!

This is a very comfy coat and fits me well. At first I thought it might be to fitted but as I have worn it have realized that it's just right. I'm 5'5" with wide shoulders and long arms.

Perfect length + warm

Im 52 and the length is perfect, hits right above my knee. Wore a sweat shirt under it and was very warm. Definitely more fitted so size up if you are wanting to layer with thicker clothing underneath. Love that the hood can be zipped inside of coat. Wore in 20° weather and kept me warm. Amazing quality! Love the color!

Very nice fit and styling.

Loved this coat the minute I put it on. great fit and style. Im 5 foot 7 inches , 135 lbs.

Very comfy and warm

This coat is the perfect length. It covers your bottom and falls a few inches above your knees. The hood is just the right size; not too big, so it looks nice. This coat is super light weight, which I love... and it is truly warm. Ive walked in 19 degrees and been very comfortable. Its very fashionable as well. Definitely not bulky. I said it runs ...

Just comfy!

This coat feels brilliant. It makes me warm and cozy, while keeping my body temperature nicely tempered. Love the color as well. Happy with this purchase!

Great everyday jacket

This jacket is very warm and the perfect size and weight for a winter everyday coat. The slim fit means I dont feel like a marshmallow!

February 23, 2021

Warm, so warm

Its great for everything I do, from taking the dog on a walk in the morning to sitting outside at bars and restaurants with friends. Im yet to be cold wearing it. My favorite touch is the elastic sleeve cuffs, which are comfortable and help keep everything warm.

February 18, 2021

Cozy cozy

Love this jacket. I am on the petite side and sometimes feel jackets like this look too puffy or roomy on me. I like that this one is fitted and doesn't look like I am a kid wearing my mom's coat. It hits be above the knee by a few inches and I am 5'0". For those looking for fit, I am around 105 lbs.

February 5, 2021

Ive been looking for this!

Ive been on the hunt for a parka with a diagonal design that includes a hood, and this fits the bill! I love how I am able to able to tuck the hood away nicely. I am normally an XS in Patagonia jackets, but I sized up. Im 50 and this hits just right at the knee.

January 24, 2021

Tight in the elbow area of the sleeve

I bought a small and a medium in this jacket. I am 5'6 tall and weigh 125. I loved the way the small jacket fit through the body, but unfortunately the sleeve was too tight, especially around my elbow. The medium was fine in the sleeve, but too roomy in the body, so I had to send both of the jackets back. It is a beautiful jacket. I was disapp... Read Moreointed it didn't work. I usually wear small in Patagonia jackets, and have never had a problem with the sleeve being too tight.

Warm and cozy

I love this jacket! It keeps me warm and cozy. I like the zip in hoody because I usually dont wear it so its tucked away until I need it.

January 2, 2021


I would agree with alot of these post where it is biger in the top then it is in the bottom. Thos was given to me as a gift for christmas and I was super excited. As soon as I tried it on i knew it wasnt going to work. The hips are way to tight and the sleeves are short by 2 to 3 inches. Then other thing is it really isnt that warm. I live in the m...

Thank you for your review on our Women's Silent Down Parka. We'll pass your notes about fit on to the appropriate teams. For the weather your facing in the Midwest, you will definitely want a beefier parka to keep you nice and warm. We would recommend checking out the [Frozen Range 3-in-1](, not only is it warm, the zip-out liner gives you options!

Great Gear

This is the perfect winter coat for hiking and walking. Great length, comfort and the hood is so good for windy days.

December 24, 2020

Perfect coat!

This coat is cute and practical. Perfect winter coat. Love how lightweight it is while still keeping me warm!

December 23, 2020

Super warm

Light weight, keeps your legs and butt warm and easy to walk any pace.

December 18, 2020

Cute cut, runs small

Right in shoulder and hip areas. Sleeves a touch short IMO. Size up!

Thanks for your feedback, Heidi! This design is a "slim" fit, so it can feel snug compared to our "regular" or "relaxed" fit parkas. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you'd like to return or exchange it. We'll be happy to [help](

Lovely coat, warm, strange fit, loses down

When I first put this on, I was disappointed in the fit. It's great from the waist up, but tight around my hips - which is never an issue for me. The fit is passable, but not if I want to be able to really layer up, and that's specifically what I was looking for with buying a winter coat right now. But, the fabric is just lovely and I lik... Read Moree the color and style, and I need a coat, so I wore it for an extremely slow walk around my hood in about 40 degree weather at night to test it out. It was TOASTY warm - and I get cold very easily, so I really liked that. But after that brief wear, there were about 5 feathers coming out in different places. I saw in a number of other reviews that leaking down was an issue, but decided to try it anyway because it didn't seem to be an issue for everyone, and I need a coat! I considered exchanging this for a larger size, but I'm afraid that it would be too large from the waist up, and I can't afford the time and expense of exchanges for something that might not work. Between the fit and the down leaking I'm sadly going to have to return it.

November 29, 2020

Super soft and warm

I loved this. I had exchanged my medium for a large as the medium was snug. Lots of room for layers. Love love it

Perfect for the Outdoors

I wear my Patagonia down sweater as my daily jacket but needed something warmer for outdoor sporting events. I researched all of Patagonia's parkas and am so glad I selected the W's Silent Down Parka. I love that it covers my hips and upper thighs. It makes such a difference in my comfort outdoors! I also love the fitted cut, the zipper/s... Read Morenap combo that zips from both ends if I want the bottom looser while sitting in a beach chair, the cozy pockets and the detachable hood. I layer sweaters and fleece tops under mine and the XS still fits fine, not too snug at all. I was worried the arms might be too short in the XS based on reviews but they're fine as well. I've attended sporting events with steady rainfall (not pouring, but still lots of water) and it kept me dry. I'm leaving this review because so many people have had problems with feathers shedding, but it honestly hasn't been an issue for me. Overall, after a year I'm still extremely happy with this jacket and expect it to last me for many years.

Great jacket

Super warm. Great fit. Great color. Great company :)

Bland color, drab coat

Okay, this coat is super warm and light weight and Noiseless! if that is something you care about. The fit is okay, a bit too large on top (but hey you can put sweaters) and tighter around the bottom....not bad at all. BUT there is something about this coat, is it the polyester or the down?? that feels/looks worn out, a flat and wrinkled look that ... Read Morefor me at least did not appeal. This color I might add is pretty drab and there is a dullness to the coat, no sheen. Now if none of that bothers you, I think it is a great layer of warmth and I was sorry the fabric and loft did not appeal.

Favorite Jacket

This is my favorite jacket. It is warm, comfortable, and cute. I love all things Patagonia, and it is even better that I can always trust this brand. Thank you for doing what you do!

Love this coat!

I got this coat for 70% at a local shop this summer. I've been wanting a longer coat to cover my thighs and butt for football games and everyday wear in Montana. I didn't want to pay a lot (more than $200) for a coat and I randomly found this on a sales rack. I wore it last night and it was so warm and I just discovered that the hood can ... Read Morebe zipped into the neck area when not in use. I am short and chubby (5 ft tall and 152 lbs) and the arms fit perfectly. I have a larger chest (G cup!!!) and I can zip up with no probs. I do have to say Patagonia sizing and cut of clothes have gotten slimmer over the years, but maybe that's the style these days. I have not noticed any feathers poking out yet and I didn't realize that being silent was one of the features. Not typically something O care about unless its totally obnoxious. I have loved Patagonia gear since I discovered my first blue pullover jacket in a fly fishing shop over 30 years ago when I was in high school. I the quality and repairs!

Overpriced jacket

I don't usually buy this expensive jackets but decided I would spend a little more to get something that would last. I was very disappointed to discover that jacket was bleeding down, not only from the seems, but also from the fabric. It seems to me that the woven composition of the fabric isn't dense enough which results in down peeking ... Read Moreout. After a month of use I went to the store and explained the problem, I got the explanation that the down will set and the bleeding will stop when using the jacket over time. They also said that they could send the jacket to a facility where the reclamation will be investigated. After more than a month of wait, with no winter jacket, they sent me a new jacket. They claimed that there was no faults but that I got a new jacket out of goodwill. Now having used the new jacket for a while I still experience the same problem. I regret buying this jacket and I wouldn't recommend anyone buying it.

Even with a Cairn

I walk my Cairn terrier three times a day. She loves the snow and temps down to 10 or so. This coat is warm, comfortable, and fits. I love it!

Amazing jacket

Such a warm jacket, just perfect for cold Ohio winters. Fit is a little smaller than I expected even for slim fit, but still ordered normal size. Sleeves are a little short, but there is elastic closure so no fear of cold wrists.

Nice warm coat. Snug fit

Nice warm coat. Snug fit but also flattering. Glad to have this as an option for a cold Maine winter coat.

I love this parka. It is soft and warm and easy to wear. It makes up for the fit, which feels a little snug around the hips and looser on top.

December 4, 2019

Too small

I’ve been wearing a size small in Patagonia for years, so felt confident that this size would work for this parka. It should have fit according to the chart. However, as another reviewer experienced, I could barely zip it up and the sleeves are also short. I had to check the size again to make sure it wasn’t an XS! I’m really sad about this because...

Hi Catherine, thanks for taking the time to write us a review! We're sorry to hear about the trouble with sizing. The Silent Down Parka is a slim fit so it will fit a bit more tight than our regular fit items. Nevertheless, your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](

I purchssed this coat recently and have not had the chance to wear it yet. The weather here in the northwest has been mild, but suppose to get much colder next week. So I am sure that I will be wearing it soon. Looks to be a very nice coat, fits well and well made. I like that it has a nice looking hood. It is not snug liks some on Patagonia jacket... Read Mores. I like that the hood can be tucked into a zipper collar when not needed. The cuffs are very nice, with the knit inside the outer cuffs, which make it easy to slip on & off. I wish the Jackets were made the same way. Nice length....just above the knee. I think it will be a great coat and I like the style.

Loved the jacket, but too small

I fit the profile on the size chart of a size 8 Medium exactly - yet I could barely zip the jacket up and no, my hips aren't enormous! They measure 38.5 just like the chart. I am returning which I'm super sad to do but there's no way it would be comfortable. A large would be too big based on their size chart, and I'm not wearing... Read More a LARGE. Would be nice if the size chart was correct for the garment and better yet, making the jacket so it fits the size chart! Color was great, fabric great.

Perfect jacket for fall

The fit and feel of this jacket makes it perfect for fall temps. It's a flattering cut, and not as bulky as other long parkas. Runs a bit small (I had to exchange for one size up, and I'm nearly always an XS), especially if you plan to layer.

I love this coat as

I love this coat as others said there is a slight shedding problem. Wish they could fix it. I was told to put it in the dryer and that did help. That being said I would buy it again.

Patagonia long parka winter jacket

I got this as a Christmas gift. I really love this jacket, but i'm worried that the quality (at least of the zipper) is questionable...I've had it for a little over a year, and when I went to zip it up the other day, the zipper broke off in my hand. I can post pictures if anyone needs, but basically now it's a sharp shard which I&#x2... Read More7;m worried will cut my hand. I'm going to write to the company today and see if they can repair or replace it, and I'll let you know what happens! :)

5'5", 125 lbs I received this coat for Christmas, size small (and according the size chart this is accurate). It fits snugly and keeps me warm due to the snug fit, and the fabric is beautiful, but the arms are 2-3" too short!! I don't have abnormally long arms and this has never been a problem with any other patagonia coats I ow... Read Moren (down sweater, windbreaker, butter fleece, better sweater), but this coat stops well before my wrist and looks ridiculous. I ordered a medium to see the difference--sleeves fit better, but the body is so loose that cold air gets in and doesn't keep me as warm as the small. I also don't have to have to layer underneath all the time. This coat is too pricey to not fit well. I'll likely be returning.

January 6, 2019

Beautiful but porous

I love this coat. I agree that the fit around the hips is too tight. I feel comfortably free in the shoulders, but not so much in the hips, especially if I'm wearing a tunic top or work jeans. Feels a bit prissy, so tight around the hips. The one sad thing about this coat is that the feathers poke out occasionally. Just the big feathers, appar... Read Moreently, and then you have to wonder about pulling them out, risking making a bigger hole in this lovely silent fabric, or stuffing them back in, which rarely works. So now I'm walking around with 4 or 5 little white dots on the coat which ruins the elegant look. Got any suggestions, Patagonia?

Great down coat...perfect length...easy to layer...but...SLEEVES TOO SHORT

I love the silent! I love the warmth...but I had to buy a size large to get the sleeves down to my wrists...And usually I LOVE Patagonia long sleeves. Upside...I can wear a nano puff jacket underneath even tho' it's rarely necessary

Warmth without looking like the Michelin man!

I’ve been looking for a down coat that would keep me warm in Boston winters while waiting for the bus and walking to work. This one is perfect!

Slim fit

I have a couple Patagonia down jackets, including this one. I love them all. But be careful to check whether a jacket is “slim fit”. I was a better slim fit 20 years ago than I am now....

Haven’t even used it yet but from trying it on in the store I can tell this is a 5 STAR jacket

On the fence

This jacket has a hood which is not shown on the model. I love that it has a hood so that was a pleasant surprise. The fit is different. I am 5'7 130 lbs, bought the medium. The hip area is more fitted than the top part of the jacket. I am a 4/6 on the bottom or a 28-29 waist in denim and feel this jacket is not proportionate to the top. In th... Read Moree shorter version of Patagonia jackets I take a small most of the time and a medium on occasion. Just feel this fit is off. Took a walk with it on, temperature was 17 degrees F, and honestly this jacket did not keep me very warm. Temps above 25 its fine. Really on the fence with this jacket.
