Patagonia Men's Down Sweater Vest

True To Size
December 11, 2022

Perfect Fit and Very Warm

I wear this down sweater vest over my cycling kit for road cycling early in the morning (5am-9am) in Southern California. It is typically 40-50 degrees most days during that time frame and this vest keeps my core with ample warmth while cycling. In addition, I wear this casually for work over a long sleeved shirt and sweatshirt and it keeps me feel... Read Moreing warm without any discomfort. The fit is a slim-fit and fits me nice and snug. The quality is certainly exceptional and you can see the difference in quality with other down sweater vests on the market (e.g., your typical average Amazon brands). In short, the average brands purchased on the market fall short on the quality that Patagonia delivers.

We appreciate your feedback on the fit, comfort, fabric, warmth and function! Please note that this vest is a "regular" fit design but we're happy that it fits you well. Thanks for taking the time to send us a review, Jacob!

Fit is spot on, lightweight,

Fit is spot on, lightweight, exceptional quality and very warm. Exactly what I was looking for, but then that is the reason why I bought Patagonia.

Perfect fit and comfortable!

This vest is the ideal weight for morning walks and fits perfect. The 3xl was true to size. I am 6'3 with a wide build.

Very warm and quite stylish

The vest is very warm and comfortable, the size fits true for me if wearing a thin shirt under but Is a little tight with anything thicker underneath.

September 8, 2022

Nice light vest.

The down vest is nice. My only criticism is the the zipper is not 2 way. As a result, the vest is not as comfortable when sitting. An inside pocket would be nice too.

September 8, 2022

great fit

I am 5'5" and slender so it is nice to find a quality product in a smaller (xs) size that fits well and actually has a bit of style.

September 7, 2022

Excellent like most Patagonia products -

This is my favorite Patagonia piece because you can use it all year long !

September 7, 2022

Warm and comfortable

Warm and comfortable. Easy to move in. Makes a great warm layer when colder. Waist draw string allows for adjustments of different situations.

Great core piece of apparel

This is a great piece of core apparel for all kinds of outdoor activities, work, or hanging out. Can't believe I went this long without it.

Down vest

I ordered a down vest as a replacement for a vest that I purchased from Patagonia many years ago that was a fantastic product. The vest held up incredibly well over many years. However The new vest is significantly inferior in fill especially around the collar where the ribbed area had literally flat areas with little or no down.

September 13, 2022

We're very sorry to hear the new vest was disappointing. Returns can be made at our Patagonia-owned retail store locations or our [Customer Service](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) team will be happy to assist. Please note that we will have a few other insulated vests to choose from as we near Fall and Winter, and we hope one of them is a better match to the previous design. Thanks for your review!

September 5, 2022

A classic, what's not to love? :)

Love this vest and look forward to using it, or my Retro-X vest, as conditions dictate. I have been buying Patagonia gear since the early 80's and will continue to do so!

August 18, 2022

Nice Style but fit seems small

I normally where a size M vest but for some reason this one is tight on me through the chest. Will have to return it. Otherwise a nice product.

Hi Charles! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're stoked to hear that you're liking the vest so far. We definitely want you to have the best fit possible so you're welcome to [exchange](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) for an XL.

The usual Patagonia fine quality.

May 22, 2022

Very Nice.

It was a perfect fit and I plan to use it during the Spring,Summer and Winter weather.

May 21, 2022

Too small in shoulders

I normally wear a size M in all Patagonia garments. This is not a true M. Both shoulders stuck way out on the sides. The size L was too baggy in the mid-section. I hope they can fix this in future releases.

Response from Patagonia
May 24, 2022

We're sorry to hear that the sizing on this "regular" fit vest is a disappointment. It sounds like you might prefer our "slim" fit products like the [Nano-Air Vest](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-nano-air-vest/84272.html). Please reach out to our Customer Service team if you need any further assistance. We'll be happy to help!

Warm but relatively lighter in weight and less bulky then others. Can be used for a wide range of temperature conditions. Excellent.

May 14, 2022


I wish it still came with the red zipper and red inside. It wasnt quite as advertised. But it fits my husband well.

Response from Patagonia
May 17, 2022

Hey Elizabeth, thank you for leaving us this review. We looked up your order in our system and see that you ordered the Forge Grey, and we're not able to locate this colorway with a red zipper and red interior as you mentioned. It's possible it could have been a different variation from a past season that we no longer carry. If you're ever wishing you purchased an old colorway that is no longer available, we do offer lightly used gear from past seasons on our [Worn Wear website](https://wornwear.patagonia.com/), check it out!

Comfortable vest

Very comfortable vest and very warm

He wears it every day

I gave this to my husband (pilot in training, Redmond OR) and he said he wears it every day. His only complaint is that he doesnt have two of themhell get by! Perfect for hiking at Smith Rock. Plenty of warmth without being bulky.

May 6, 2022

Light and warm

High loft down, good design, attractive colors meld into a great piece of color thing. Almost sad summer is coming. Almost.

Good fit. Wish it more interior pockets.

Dark Borealis Green Vest

Love the vest. Have gotten many compliments on the vest colors.

March 28, 2022

Excellent quality

Perfect vest jacket. Well made, comfortable and has the perfect warmth while not being too bulky.

March 25, 2022

Great Product

I have always loved Patagonia quality and this product does not disappoint. I love using a vest as a mid layer during outside activities in cold climates. This is an awesome addition to my arsenal. The only thing that this vest is lacking is an outside zippered pocket. Hopefully Patagonia will remedy this soon. Cheers!

March 22, 2022

All and all satisfied

Nice to wear over sweatshirt. Nice deep big zippered pockets are great. Love zipper going up not down like one of your other vests I have! Didnt buy it for warmth which it isnt but it does protect alittle over sweatshirts or long sleeve tee shirts. Nice to use on golf course. Not cumbersome. Love the big pockets. If it had small pockets wouldnt hav... Read Moree bought it!

March 21, 2022


Got this for my husband and he absolutely loves it. He runs hot and cold pretty easily and this has been wonderful for those days right in between so he does not have to keep pulling layers on and off. Fits like a dream.

March 20, 2022

Fits Perfectly

This vest is very lightweight and provides excellent insulation on cooler days. It fits beautifully.

March 18, 2022

Just the Trick

First thing to know is that this vest runs small. I am 5'-10" and weigh 165 lbs. I wear a medium in almost all clothes. I purchased a medium vest and it was uncomfortably snug. I had to return it and order a large, which is slightly loose to my preference. However the vest is nice an warm. I used it continually on a recent trip to Nationa... Read Morel Parks in Utah and Colorado (in February 2022) and wore it daily. It worked quite well for times when the vest and a long sleeve shirt were all that was needed, and also worked quite well as an underlayer for my tri-climate jacket on days when it was cold. I like the vest and am glad I purchased it. I wanted the warmth of the 800 down fill and it added the versatility I as looking for.

March 18, 2022

My husband loves it

Gift for my husband. Perfect fit true to size. Looks great

March 17, 2022

Cozy vest

Very cozy. Will expand my vest collection.

March 17, 2022

Love this Vest

This is my second Vest in this family. The first one lasted me 10 years, and I donated it to the next lucky user. This particular new one certainly has been upgraded, I like the drawstrings being through the pockets, and I like how the down has been compartmentalized a little bit better in the newer version, making it more fluffy throughout the ves... Read Moret. Extremely happy with the purchase and I believe this is one of the Patagonia signature items, so will always have one in my closet and recommend one for everyone.

March 15, 2022

So good I bought a second one.

This is my second Pat men's down sweater vest. I liked the first one bought a few months ago so much that I got another one (once your sale came along). It's warm for how light it is and seems to be very well made. Good colors. Nothing to criticize in the vest, so I'll criticize this survey -- the question about fit description allow...

Perfectly warm, soft, and cozy.

I wear this vest daily in the winter, it's so soft and comfortable. I also find it strangely comforting, in an emotional way.

Golf and 4 mile walk 3 -4 days weekly.

Very light weight. Great for golf. very comfortable fit. Very warm on cold days and protective against the wind. Looks great. Very happy with my purchase.

Down vest , very warm

Great vest! Keeps your core very warm. Patagonia is the best brand out there! Not only because of their well made and fitting products their customers service is beyond compare! I will always be a Patagonia customer

February 23, 2022

Flat out sized wrong

Good vest - should have bought larger size. No consistency from vest to vest - this one actually sized wrong, I believe. Too snug in shoulders and chest.

Hey Frank, thanks for the review. We're sorry to hear of the size discrepancies and will share your feedback with the team.

Very Warm

Goose down vest is fantastic. Very warm. If you wear an XL shirt or sometimes a XXL, you definitely want an XXL vest.

February 23, 2022

Great go-to warmth

I love my vest. It is the perfect piece of clothing for when I want to be out and about in chilly weather. It every way it just feels right! At 5 9 and 175 lbs it fits great. Could be a smidge more slim fitting. But really its a great fit and length.

February 17, 2022

Perfect vest

The perfect vest for every activity.

Light, Comfortable, Warm

Very happy with the fit, weight, and warmth of the vest. Highly recommend.

February 14, 2022

Awesome Vest

I ordered XXL which is usually what I wear and the vest seemed 2 sizes too small. It was tight in the body, too short, arm holes were too tight, I switched to XXXL and vest is a little loose so the sizing is off, but the XXXL fits and I love the vest. The XXXL is a little looser than I would prefer but fits way better than XXL which is what I own o... Read Moren all the other brands of jackets and vests I own.

Love it, add 1 inch as a drop down in the back!!!

Warm and practical for all activities

Perfect replacement for the older one I worn out. keeps me warm and allows movement so its my perfect layer.

Super Comfortable

Great for playing golf - make your swing easy

January 31, 2022


A little long in the body otherwise it fits fine

January 28, 2022

So far so good

Fit is true to size. Very lightweight and warm. Smells a bit unusual in an unpleasant way, but am assuming (and hoping) that this will dissipate eventually. Five stars minus one for the weird, lingering odor. Very expensive, probably paying too much for the over-the-top Patagonia company virtue signaling.

January 28, 2022

Love it!!!

Love it I wear it every day: its below zero here!!!

January 26, 2022

Agree that is super warm and comfortable

Fits great and his the warmest jacket I have had.

Perfect Vest!!

Bought a green one and planning to get it in other colors. Very comfortable to wear.

December 30, 2021

Perfect for Michigan weather

This vest is so light, but warm and lovely for the cold, snowy winters where the weather changes frequently and only layering works from October to May!

December 27, 2021

Great Vest

This vest is great! Lightweight but warm and of course stylish. I would say that the XXL that I ordered runs a little smaller than normal XXLs.

December 27, 2021


Worn under a single layer raincoat in Portland, OR and alone over a long sleeve shirt at night in Newport Beach. Great neck protection and pockets that WORK.

Poor Sizing

I usually wear a size M in any Patagonia product. This time the M was too small. It was too short and both of my shoulders stuck out of the sides. I returned it to REI and tried on a L.

Its Patagonia.

Excellent overall down vest, runs small-ish

Originally purchased Medium and exchanged for Large, otherwise it's excellent. This hits all the right technical marks for a down vest. I love the inner chest pocket (which can be used to pack the entire vest!), the hem drawcord, and high-quality build/materials from Patagonia (although the shell DWR provides only limited wind/water resistance... Read More, typical for down vests). And the Crater Blue is just beautiful! That all said, it does seem to run a bit small (as many others have noted), which may also depend on how you want it to fit. I am a medium in most Patagonia tops (6' 175lbs), and the medium vest fit like it's advertised, which is pretty snug all-around. Because of that, it only worked over slim/tight underlayers, not anything bulkier like a sweater or fleece or even a heavier flannel. After hemming and hawing (and searching high and low), I exchanged the medium for the large which fits much better overall, even if it doesn't hug my body quite as much as the medium.

September 29, 2021

Great product, inconsistent fit

This is my third down vest, and I recently ordered a down sweater hoody as well. The hoody and my first two vests are all great, zero complaints and the fit is great/same. The most recent vest I bought was the same size as the other three pieces (S) but fits significantly smaller to the point where I cant really wear it. Mediums are too big for me,... Read More and my other smalls are absolutely perfect but this small for an unknown reason fits significantly differently (to the point where it doesnt fit). Hope this feedback helps, this is the only Patagonia product Ive ever had an issue with and it certainly wont prevent me from being a continued customer.

September 23, 2021

Better go up a size

I have two Down Sweater Hoodies which I love and both are a size medium. I read some reviews that suggested to go up a size in the vest. I went to the Patagonia store here in Portland and tried the vest on and the store clerk laughed when I could barely get the zipper together on the medium. I put on the large and it fit perfect. I then went and pu... Read Moret on the medium in the DSH and it fit perfect like my other two. There is a definite difference in sizing between the Hoodie and the vest. I highly recommend going up a size in the vest and I am a fit athletic individual.

First, beautiful color. I also have a black one and in this pandemic I was in serious of need of joyful color and this blue is it. Otherwise, simply a great vest. Light and warm, and it fits really well. I'm a slim 6' 2" and I dislike tops that fit like an umbrella. With some pulling in of the cords at the waist when wearing over ts...

Great Item

Ive worn a number of vest this style over the years and this one sits with the top styles and fits. No oversized nor under, the knit work around the shoulder and neck make it unique to Patagonias originality. Great look, solid coloring, and as warm as youd expect or need it to be.

New sweater vest purchase.

Gave it 4 stars rather than 5 because its so new, I dont know yet how well it will hold up. Well made and very warm considering how light the garment is. A little pricey considering the competition.

Perfect fit

This is my second down sweater vest. True to the size you would normally purchase. Not right around the arm holes so even with a heavy sweatshirt it fits without issue. Im a wildland Firefighter and this thing has taken a beating over the years and never had any issues thats why I purchased the same one again.

I love it. Its the best purchase Ive ever made.

Warm and the right length

Have been a long time customer of your garments and they have lasted through several seasons. This vest would be a much better garment if it had a chest zippered pocket

Perfect for fall/winter/spring, over a shirt / sweater, or under a coat!

Its light, rugged, warm, and doesnt take much room in a backpack if you need to shed it.

Hey there, thank you for the review on our Down Sweater Vest. We're sorry to hear that this was too short for you and appreciate you sharing your thoughts with us. Please note, Customer Service is happy to provide you with measurements on any gear you may be curious about.

Nice Top Layer

I needed something that was warm yet compact enough to fit in my duffel. I use it mainly to get to the pool in winter at 6AM when it is about 40 degrees outside. I have limited space and this vest fits easily in my bag. It is very warm even though it is deceivingly thin. My only want would be for the outer shell material to feel a little more rugge...

Overall, great quality product that meets my needs.

March 5, 2021

In-between sizes

I am a pretty dedicated Patagonia customer and I've loved the down vests for years. When it came time to get a new one, I didn't hesitate, but it seems they have changed their sizing and the mediums that usually fit me are too small and the larges are too big and baggy. Per the size chart a medium is 38-40 in the chest whereas a large is ... Read More42-44. The rest of the sizes overlap with each other so why the gap between med and large? It seems like a chest size between 40-42 is pretty common and to not have that covered in a vest is disappointing. Unfortunately I'll be returning this vest.

Response from Patagonia
March 16, 2021

We're sorry the sizing didn't work for you. In the future we're always happy to provide exact garment dimensions.

March 1, 2021

Size inconsistency

Fit could have been better, it seems consistent that the small is a little too small and medium is a little too large. Been a customer for over 20 years and my only complaint is inconsistency in size, one item that fits well and is small doesn't translate over to another item. Often I have to order two sizes and return one, which is a drag.

March 1, 2021

Well, anything I have to say has been covered. So, quickly, Me likey and you will too.

Grade A Vest

I am a bit of a vest lover these days and own several vest from different brands but my Patagonia first purchase instantly became my favorite. The attention to detail and style sets Patagonia vest apart from others. I get compliments from strangers about how they like my vest. I highly recommend Patagonia vest! I plan to buy several more myself .

I miss having a little stretch (I used it for winter golf) and the chest area was slightly large. I suggested to customer service a draw band similar to what they use at the waist. ...

Too Fat For Patagonia

Ok, so I'm overweight. I'm working on it, but I like to be stylish too. Why does Patagonia discriminate against the big man;) I wear XXL in every other clothing line, but I couldn't get the zipper to zip in a Patagonia XXL Down Sweater Vest. I looked like 10 pounds of crap in a 5 pound bag. Big people need love and warmth too-may be ... Read Morea XXXL vest?

Toasty when fishing

High quality, wind proof, warmth. Keeps the body warm while allowing freedom to fly cast.

Nice For Walking Around In

I live in downtown Boston. I use the vest under my overcoat when the temperature gets cold.

super warm

great vest

January 13, 2021

Love it!

Medium is too small and large a little big. Large is better for someone with an athletic build. Allows you to layer underneath. Im happy with it.

Poor Sizing Beware

Have bought this in the past as a Small. Current sizing is down a size (or more), probably to save costs.

Stylish, super light but warm and practical

I am sold on Patagonia! I have barely taken off the vest ever since I purchased it. Thank you for the great quality.

Warm and comfy!

It's very warm and comfortable. The shipping was prompt and reliable. The vest was a little pricy but I love it!

Perfect Lightweight Stylish Vest

I bought this for my husband. He never takes it off. Its cozy inside the house and toasty warm on Catskill Mountain winter hikes. Hes tall and the length is perfect. The slate blue color with the sporty aqua blue stripe is beautiful. Patagonia customer service is second to none. Patagonia political activism is correct and admirable. I am a happy, l...

Super vest

Warm and lightweight. Not bulky. Zippered pockets and inner pocket for storage. The perfect weight. Im never too hot or cold. Probably one of my best Patagonia purchases.

Ultra Light Weight, Super Warm

This particular vest was given as a Christmas gift. We have a quilt from Patagonia made of very similar materials at the same weight. We love this cover and felt the vest would make a remarkable Christmas gift.

Took a month to receive it. Not well insulated. Fits extra loose in mid section. Overall disappointed

Excellent fit and lightweight

I love my new vest, Its wonderfully warm, I will wear it in spring, And every winter storm, If the snow is deep, And the night is cold, I will wear this vest, And be warm to the bone.

Little heavy on look work to make it sleeker

Comfortable and looks great

It's a great product and I own it in two different colors. Fits well and is far warmer than I would have expected. Worth every penny!

Very warm

Perfect for Winter Work

Purchased Vest to wear over professional attire during winter months. Large fits perfectly over button-ups and tie. Extra layer keeps me warm in the office and the look is client friendly. Pockets nice touch.

My Husband Loves

Perfect. He doesnt like jackets...this is the perfect article of clothing for him. Wears with a wool sweater under.

December 2, 2020

Love it

I'm 5'11" - 195lbs - 35" waist and have larger shoulders and back from surfing. This vest fits perfect, is nice and warm but light and folds into a tiny square to place in my pack. Looks great too.

Fashionable and warm

Being a woman that is well endowed, it is hard for me to find women's jackets/vests that will zip up with clothing underneath, so I purchased a men's extra large, which is a little big, but leaves room to wear a thinker sweater underneath if needed. Love this vest!

December 1, 2020

great clothing

I usually buy in the store and love your clothes. I'm still wearing one of you sweaters I bought 25 years ago; still in style and still looks like new, clothing is durable and extremely functional

Great winter vest.

Im a female, 5 7&1/2, weighing 150 pounds. This vest fits like I hoped, leaving room underneath for winter shirts. Its well made and functional for the winter hiking I do. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a lightweight but warm winter vest.

Nice and warm. Especially for this Chicago 40 degree weather.

I wish you guys can add a zipper the double zipper.

Appreciate XS mens sizes

Many American clothing company clothes lines run large and dont even include an extra small size choice: as a relatively diminutive sized man, I have always appreciated Patagonia including an XS line of sizes for many/most of its clothing line (perhaps due to it European roots?). And the Patagonia sizing scheme accurately reflects different men siz... Read Morees to my mind. Clothes are properly tapered, form-fitting including down vest I just purchasedto fit snuggly, properly and achieve goal of light weight, breathable warmth. Thank you!

Runs a bit small compared to other patagonia products

It seems cut slightly smaller than other smalls i get from you guys. i have a small ski shell that i can fit layers underneath, small down sweater (i think it's called) that i ordered through a local store at the same time and both of those fit no problem. I also wear size small polo shirts of yours. This one, however, puts the squeeze on a bi... Read Moret. I suspect it's an anomaly for this particular unit?? but not sure as obviously you guys make a lot of the same thing on a line. i'm kind of bummed because it's kind of a distraction when i wear it so not sure when i will. thank you! love 99.999% of your stuff. you guys are awesome.

Thank you for your feedback on this and for all the support. We are bummed to hear that the fit didn't work out on this vest. If you decide you're not grabbing for it much and want to [send](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it back, please feel free to do so.

Warm and Comfortable.

My first Patagonia product. This is one of the highest quality pieces of clothing Ive ever owned. Super comfortable, super warm, premium quality. You can tell this will last a very long time. Worth every Penny.

November 1, 2020


Customer for 20+ years but no more. Fashion has overtaken utility. Vest cut for a fashion fit and down fill may be very high quality but there's precious little of it -- near zero loft (but a slim look for the Metros).

My second purchase of this item

I'm 5'10 weigh 190-195lbs with a 42 inch chest. This is my second time purchasing a vest. The first time I purchased an XL and recently lost a bunch of weight. I used the worn wear to repurpose my old jacket and bought a new one. I went with an M because I wanted a more fitting vest. I can't have too much of a layer underneath, so no... Read More big thick winter sweater. Then again you're probably not using this coat for that.
