I really love this jacket, its very comfortable and lightweight. If you want a less fitted coat I definitely recommend sizing up since it is a womans fit. The waist band is super nice so snow doesnt go up! Overall love the details in this coat to make life much easier on the slopes, ex: pockets, hood, coat length etc
Overall I really like this jacket. It's warm and waterproof but I don't get overheated when I'm skiing. I like the big pockets on the hips but the pocket on the chest could be a bit roomier. A couple of potential tweaks: generally speaking, with all Patagonia women's products, I find the fit to be too narrow in the hips and boob... Read Mores, but a size up would be much too big on me. Also when the hood is up and the collar is zipped all the way up, the top of the collar comes up too high and hits my chin in an uncomfortable way, and the hood doesn't stay on my head well, so I wish the neck/collar was a bit shorter and the hood would come more forward over my forehead.
Like my search for snowpants, I had a hard time finding a ski jacket that fit. The sleeves on jackets from other brands were always way too long, but sizing down meant I couldn't zip them up. Thank goodness this jacket is cut perfectly! I bought it with the Snowbelle pants and together they create the perfect skiing outfit. It's also wo... Read Morerth mentioning that Patagonia clearly takes care in their shipping, as well - my whole order was packed together in a single box, without wasted space or packing material. Everything was folded neatly and arrived in perfect condition. And Patagonia's fantastic repair/return policy makes me feel good about investing in their products - it's a company I'm happy to support.
Pretty good jacket
I like the jacket pretty well. I wish it had a tad more insulation, and I wish it had more outside pockets. I like how soft and fuzzy the part of the color that hits your chin is, though I find the collar can stick up rather awkwardly--maybe it's still stiff because it's new. The fit is OK but I find it to be strangely tight around the ... Read Morehips, though I've never really had trouble buying jackets that fit me in the past. I would consider going up a size but the sleeves are already too long for me. Based on the fit being a little weird, I would probably not have bought the jacket except I strongly value the commitment to fair trade sewing and other ethical practices.
Really like this jacket. Wore
Really like this jacket. Wore it skiing today at Big Sky with single digit temps and stayed warm. I did wear a smart wool thermal and thin marmot fleece underneath. I like that the pockets are a warm ? fleece material. Also, the hood fits nicely over my helmet. I bought a large bc I wear a camel back underneath it.
Wonderful jacket...a few changes would make perfect
Beautiful styling and wonderful fabric. And is comfortable. Sleeves were about 3 inches too long so I had them altered. Also since this coat goes well below the hips it would be very nice to have a two way zipper so when sitting down I can ease fit on bottom.
Best winter jacket ever
SO warm, comfortable (you can actually move while wearing it!), pockets all in right places and the hood is just right (I wear without a helmet). Extremely well thought-out and the maple/camo/purple color puts me in my happy place. Bravo Patagonia for keeping up with mission, quality of products and top-notch customer service!
Excellent for downhill skiing
I bought this jacket for downhill skiing. The other day it was pretty cold at -5F and windy, this jacket kept me warm on my upper body. It is also waterproof and even though it was snowing it did not get wet. Highly recommend for skiing or going up in the mountains in Winter weather. I am 5 5", around 130 lb and the small fits me well. I can a... Read Morelso layer several mid-weights underneath, in fact I used the nano-air as a layer and was cozy warm! I also love the huge pockets on each side.
Warm and dry in very snowy conditions
This jacket is amazing! I wore it to snowboard where there was 8-12" of snowfall and it stayed dry and warm ALL DAY. The very edge of my sleeves were a little wet, most likely from my snowy gloves touching them constantly, but I could not be happier with this coat. It was very warm and very dry and the wind didn't cut through it at all! G... Read Moreusts were up to 20-30mph and I didn't feel them at all. Only gripe might be that I wish the mesh stash pocket was a little larger, but all in all, this is an epic jacket in any conditions!
Worked well.....at first
I have had this jacket for 3 seasons and the first two seasons it worked really well. That was in California cold weather, but now I am living in Colorado, and with the lower temps it isn't keeping me warm, anymore. I used to wear it with just one baselayer, but I wore it with a baselayer AND fleece this past weekend and I was freezing on the ... Read Morelifts!!! Maybe it just doesnt hold up well? I think if you're in the backcountry and working hard, then it would keep you warm. However, for resort riding in cold weather, it def doesnt hold it's value and keep you warm.
Needs a sleeve pocket for my ski pass
I just bought this jacket and skied in it yesterday - it was great and kept me warm and dry and for me, wearing a helmet the hood was great. I'm a little disappointed that there's nowhere easy to put the ski-pass because if it's in the chest pocket with my phone the electronic readers on lift gates don't seem to work.
Love this Coat!
I've had my coat for 2 winters now and absolutely love it! Just bought a second one in a different colour. I spend just as much time outside in the winter as I do inside snowboarding & snowshoeing. It fits perfectly and keeps me dry,I love that it's a bit longer than most jackets I've tried.
I wish this jacket had a chest pocket that would fit my sunglasses (my glasses are curved and do not lay flat 'only my phone fits in the chest pocket).I have to put them in the hip pockets and I broke my glasses when bending over to tighten my ski boots. I'm not happy! I loved my old jacket with a large interior chest pocket- it fit my gl... Read Moreasses perfectly.
Not a huge fan
I bought this and was so excited to get it that I paid for rushed shipping. However,I had to return it the same day I got it. :( The sleeves were way too long and the hood was huge. I couldn't see out from under it. I didn't plan on using a helmet under the hood,but I didnt think it would look so ridiculous without one. So unless you plan... Read More to always wear a helmet when wearing this jacket with the hood up,I suggest you don't buy this jacket.
Great fit,flattering design
Being a curvy girl,I've had a hard time finding a ski jacket that accommodates the 'girls' but doesn't make me look like a marshmallow. Well,here it is ladies! I'm a 36DDD and the large fits perfectly,and the color blocking is super flattering. Even the solid looks great. Go for it!
