This fits exactly as I wanted, with room for layers. I am 5.1 and 108 lbs and can wear a vest or big sweater under it which is perfect for being in snow country. I wish the side pockets had zippers instead of a snap. The inside pocket does have a zipper but it is not as deep as my previous Patagonia parka, which also had deeper, zippered side pocke...

This one does have snaps in addition to the heavy zipper, which my old one does not have, so thats nice!

Lovely and Warm
This works so well to keep me warm on the sub-zero days. It very light and easy to carry indoors. I was concerned it would be too long on me but the length is perfect for keeping the cold out. Pockets are great for hands, phones, glasses, keys... I love not having to carry a purse! Great for travel.
I purchased the silent down shorter jacket and while the fit was not right on me, I really liked the fabric. I saw the long version and I'm in love. It's so soft, great quality and well designed. The double zipper and snaps are great and give you lots of fastening options. It's long enough to cover your knees and reaches the top of m... Read Morey snow boots so I'm very warm when it's really cold out. I walk the dog daily and having a long warm coat as an option is key - I also love the old school look. Being able to zip, snap and have it opened or closed is great as we're walking. A medium fit but was snug in the body. The arms were way too short though. The large fits really well with a little extra room. It's actually very flattering for a long down coat - sliming - even in the large size. Worth every penny.
This coat is beautiful, feels so luxurious to wear. Warm, light. I ordered large because I have sometimes found the fit between the shoulder and sleeve to be tight on Patagonia tops and I don't like that tightness. So my coat is a little big but feels great and will be great for layering.
I bought the silent down long parka to keep me warm on walks. The 2 way zipper is helpful for getting in and out of wearing it in the car. Love the snaps down the front ,also. Very soft, very warm and the brown color is beautiful. Medium was a good fit. I wear size 8/10.
Super warm for Minnesota winter
I have been wearing this coat in the negative temperatures that come with Minnesota winter and it's everything I wanted. The length leaves very little of my legs exposed when I wear boots and the hood keeps my head warm. It's insulating, soft and warm without being heavy. Absolutely worth it.
Warm and comfortable
This is my second Silent Down Coat. I loved my last one, and would wear it most of the winter, as it was light, warm and very comfortable, as well as flattering. I had hoped to get a navy or dark brown onethis time but those colors were not available. Although I don't love the colors this season, which is geared more for blondes, than brunette... Read Mores, I compromised, and bought the medium brown one. The coat fits a bit snugly, but still allows me to layer. I hope to love it as much as my last coat.

minus 5 here in wisconsin, winds blowing so hard its hard to think straight outside.

I felt really protected in very extreme temps and was really grateful that you created such an amazing jacket. thank you so much Patagonia.
Just what I have been looking for
I have tried other comparable brands and have not been satisfied. When I discovered this coat in my local Patagonia store I was instantly sold. Its super warm (I live in Maine, warmth is a must), lightweight and doesnt look like Im wearing a sleeping bag. I am thrilled with my purchase.
Not that warm
This coat is very comfortable and lightweight and pretty attractive for a puffer. I love that it is reused down and the company ethical standards. But I dont find it that warm which is disappointing. At 25-30 degrees I was marginally warm. For the price and description, expected it to be warm down to zero. I will probably return it.

We're sorry to hear this parka isn't as warm as you had hoped, Irene! Thank you for this review. If you do decide to return it you can absolutely do that through our [Returns Page.](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html)
Super warm and comfortable
Great coat for cold winters. I do not have to wear many layers underneath to keep warm even in freezing temperatures. I am good with this coat and a t-shirt underneath even in 20 degree weather. It is very windproof, which is good for Chicago winters. It covers my knees for extra warmth, too
Best Cozy Coat Ever!
Buying this coat was a splurge, and I'm happy to say I have zero regrets. This coat is so unbelievably soft and toasty warm. I'm a teacher in upstate NY, were we take winter seriously. The extra length of this coat is perfect for recess duty, running errand in big wind chill, and outdoor winter parties.

We're so glad to hear that our longest parka is keeping you warm out there on all your daily adventures. Thanks for the review, Susan!
I have not wear the jacket yet (that's why 4 stars) because the weather is still pretty warm but just after trying it I was very happy with how the jacked fits, looks, feels.

Read Morebut the jacket seems very well done. The color is beautiful, I will pair my coat with beige hat and scarf which look great together. I can't wait for the cooler days to actually wear it outside, I'm sure it will keep me warm from head to toes as it's nicely insulated. I'm happy with it!
This is THE BEST down jacket.
I put this jacket on the moment it gets chilly in the fall and until it gets too warm in the spring. I live in Montana and will wear this for easily 6 months out of the year. It's like wearing a toasty sleeping bag. It comes to my mid-calf and wouldn't have it any other way. It's so soft and quiet and people comment on it all the tim... Read Moree. (I'm sensory avoidant / sensitive to sound, so the quiet aspect of this jacket is really noticeable.) Highly recommend!
Cozy Warm Jacket
I bought this coat to replace a shorter one and I am really happy with the fit an feel. I have not had a chance to wear it in cold weather yet, but know it will be warm for the cold and show we get here in Central Oregon. Perfect for dog walking and errand running.
I love this coat. The color, size, fit and quality is amazing! I will wear it proudly and take very good care of it for many years of joyful wear! Thank you!

Thank you so much for sharing this review. Kim! We're thrilled to learn this Silent Down Parka has gone to such a good home! Please let us know if we can be of any help at all!
The best Patagonia item I own!
I was worried I ordered a size too small due to other reviews, but this jacket is true to size and you can definitely layer underneath. This is the best item I've ever bought from Patagonia. It's so soft, I feel like I'm wearing a down blanket or sleeping bag.
Warm and comfortable
While I LOVE this coat, there are a few random things about it I'd like to change. I wish that the exterior hand pockets zipped closed rather than a single button snap closure. That's not very secure so when I'm sitting in the stands watching hockey I fear losing my keys into the abyss below. But there is an interior zip chest pocket... Read More so I guess you use that instead.. I am 5"8" 135lb and I find that I needed the medium only because of the sleeve length. The sleeves are too short in the small, like so short. So the coat isn't as fitted if you size up to accommodate the sleeve length issue. Medium the sleeve length is great, and I suppose now I just have more room for a big layer underneath. Otherwise I am so in love with this coat. It is warm, and the entire reason I wanted it is due to the length- it hits me mid calf. It has been -22 ° in Montana and I walk around comfortably in this coat, it's awesome.
Winner winner winter jacket
I always love the way Patagonia improve and strive to be ecologically correct with their products. Not only so warm and light weight, this product in my mind, one of the best !

Just what I wanted
I love this jacket. I think I've dreamt about this jacket my whole life, and here it is. It's soft. It's incredibly warm. It looks good, and feels like you're wearing a sleeping bag.

We're so happy to hear you're loving this coat that you wanted for so long! And the fact that it's helping you keep up with your puppy is such a bonus!
warmer then expected
I bought this coat as my everyday coat. you know walks with my kid, hop in the car and go type of thing. it is super warm!

Warm Long Coat
Got this to wear in cold weather, think 10-30F. Wanted something long. Im 57 145lbs, it comes mid calf on me which is perfect. 2 way zip is helpful, could be hard to walk otherwise. Flat black color and no label makes it more refined/discreet, can dress it up or down. The Large on me is roomy, not form fitting- what I wantedwould size down if youre... Read More looking for form fit.
Pockets not zippered
Having pockets that zip is extremely important. Every large winter coat I've had- even from Patagonia has zippered pockets. But this is a single, extremely cheap looking single snap in the middle. I am contemplating returning it but I really need it. Very frustrating.

Thank you for sharing this review, Ruth. We're sorry to hear those snap closures are a disappointment! Please do remember you are welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) anything that isn't right for you, if you decide to do so.
Almost perfect coat
This coat is very warm, material is soft. The zipper is very sturdy, I feel like zippers can be a weak point in a jacket. I really love that much of the coat comes from recycled materials. The weak point of the coat is seams. I have 2 small areas where the seams are coming apart after wearing less than times. I am debating about returning. I really... Read More love the coat otherwise.

Great full body coverage
Love the length! It hits me at about mid-shin. There's enough room that I can wear a thicker layer underneath. It's SO WARM! The inner cuff is nice, but wouldn't mind an extended cuff with a thumb hole. Pockets are deep too, nothing is falling out of those.
Great in the northeast
I traded in my glacier parka for this jacket and am very glad -- living in NYC, the length and warmth have been excellent to get me through the worst of winter. I wish Patagonia would make more jackets with an extended hood that better protects your face during high wind/snow/rain. This hood doesn't do that, but it is fitted around your head a... Read Morend keeps your ears warm. Be prepared for your face to get wet and windblown -- but the rest of you will be warm!!
I was a but skeptical about ordering the jacket without trying it on but man oh man. So cozy! Feels like a cute sleeping bag I ordered medium I'm 5.5 +130. Now my jacket did have a tiny hole so I mailed it back but I received a new one less than a week later no questions asked. For reference I live in Seattle, WA.
After four purchases and returns, I finally have a coat that is comfortable and warm. A few thoughts: 1) it doesn't have an exterior Patagonia label which surprised me because I'd wear it proudly. Why not offer it as an option?; 2) the hood doesn't detach. What not offer that as an option or simply design with a zipper hood?; and 3) ... Read MoreThere's no inside hook/tab for hanging it up, hence, when not on a hanger, it's hanging from the hood. Seems an easy fix. Obviously, I still love the coat but I'll bet other customers would appreciate theses tweaks, too. Cheers!
Very lightweight and flattering.
This jacket has a looser fit. It fits just slightly bigger on me than the Dusty Mesa Parka, which I have in the same size. I think the fit is very flattering though, and it leaves room for a sweater underneath the jacket. For a calf length parka, it is one of the cutest options I have seen on. The jacket is surprisingly light for its warmth, it fee... Read Morels like you are wearing nothing. I think this could be worn on a casual hike without any weight issues.
So close, but a few problems
This coat is so close but theres a few issues that make it a coat I cant recommend. The zipper is a hassle to use. It gets stuck and is hard to get in and out of. For the price, this feels like it shouldnt be a problem. The biggest issue is this jacket constantly leaks down. Ive had it about 2 months and down is still coming out of the seams of the... Read More jacket. Im picking feathers off myself every time I wear it. Otherwise the fit and fabric is lovely. Not terribly warm, either. Theres other coats that are worth it for the price!
Warm & Trendy
Really stoked on this coat! For someone that runs cold, wearing this coat un-zipped is a game-changer for evening walks or for working from my cold apartment that doesn't have heating. It's like wearing a super cozy and soft sleeping bag, but make it fashion! Excited to bring it to my snowy mountain adventures this season! At first I thou...

My trusty Cabelas down coat lost its down, so I was on the hunt for a replacement or replacing the down. I was nervous to do the later, so I chose this coat. We regularly have sub zero temps with wind, here in Montana. I was hoping that this coat would tick off all the same boxes as my former coat. Unfortunately, it does not. There is not as much f... Read Moreill, and there are even places in the coat without any down. It is warm, but I will now need to wear more layers for a comparable warmth as my old coat. Pluses are it is a great length, sturdy 2-way zipper, and a nice hood (that I bought a magnetic muff for, for extra protection from winds). This coat is true to size and comfortable that allows full range of motion and no pulling in any areas. I really just wish it was warmer without areas without any down- particularly at this price point.
This coat feels like being wrapped in a blanket. It's thick and extremely warm, but the softness of the fabric keeps it from feeling bulky; it's just cozy. I'm 5'6 and it hits me mid calf and keeps my legs nice and toasty too. I'm about 135lb and the medium is a bit roomier than I expected in the torso, but the arm/shoulder...
