Perfect Lite-Weight Sweater Jacket

Light, I normally wear an XL but they were oversized so I dropped into a large - perfect fit and still room enough. Weather's warmed up already so I might get one chance of spring chill to wear it before next season. From initial try-on was very happy to have this added to my kit, but I still think this piece needs a separate travel and pack s... Read Moretuff sack and inside pouches.

BOO HISS on the new slim fit!!

I bought this jacket four, maybe five years ago. It is probably my all time favorite Patagonia purchase. I love everything about it -- the quality, the weight and most importantly the FIT. And it's still going strong. In Feb 2020 I bought a second one in Peppergrass Green. Same size (M). The color did not disappoint. Unfortunately, the most im... Read Moreportant feature did; the fit is not the same. The new jacket is tighter in the shoulders, under the arms and around the chest. It was like being zipped up into a straw (a re-useable one, of course). Some people may be able to size up to a large but I was not -- the fit was too boxy, arm length too long. UGH, Patagonia, why did you mess with a good thing? So disappointed. I returned it.

Hi Barry! We're really sorry that you had to return this in the end. It is definitely disappointing not finding the new fits/designs as favorable as the previous ones. Your feedback has been passed along to the appropriate team. Thanks for your review!

Great Jacket, but....

I bought this jacket in November and have been using it as my primary layer this winter with a sweater underneath. With moderate to heavy use already this garment is already showing signs of wear, small rips/tears, lost stitching on one of the arms, and most recently a broken zipper. Although I love this jacket and Patagonia I am deeply saddened by... Read More the state of my gear. Hopefully it will be able to be repaired.

Neck Area Turned Dark After Normal Wear

The neck area turned dark after normal/light wear. I tried use down detergent to wash and clean, but did not work. This doesn't happen to my other down jackets with similar material. Very disappointed.

Hi Chong, thanks for taking the time to write us a review! We're really sorry to hear the way the material around the neck stained. We'd suggest trying to hand wash it in warm water and then give it a tumble dry. If that doesn't help, you're welcome to [return]( it for warranty review!

Decent down Sweater

Have an older model from ~3 years back but still good. It's a SWEATER meaning that it's lightweight so it's warm enough ~40-50F but when it reaches down freezing ~32F, wear it underneath a True Down garment like a jacket/coat. For warmer weather, the sweater can/is used as a lightweight jacket. Just remember the 'lightweight&#x2... Read More7; part! It does block out most of the wind and is relatively warm depending on the temperature. The shoulder areas are a bit tight but is roomy enough for you to wear a long sleeve base layer and a light-mid weight fleece underweath. It does get dirty just from wear especially if you have a bright colored version as mine is red. Wash on delicate cycle with warm water and dry low or fluff with a few balls to puff it back up. May have to fluff it a bit. If you don't have a down wash, using Woolite is fine but just use a little, even with some baking soda. Buy it when it's on sale as it's pricey otherwise.

Perfect Jacket

I have a HARD to shop for dad, who is very particular about cuts and fabrics and breathability etc. He LOVES this jacket, and said it protected him perfectly from the wind on a walk in the neighborhood. He also said it’s the perfect amount of warmth on a Brisk California winter day. I would highly recommend.

Perfect for our MT fall/winter.

Perfect for our MT fall/winter. If I layer with MWT Capilene and a sweater, it's comfortable down to single digits. Then it's time for the 10 year old Fitzroy.

Awesome down sweater

Finally replaced my old, repaired many times down sweater. The new sweater is awesome except for the loss of the hook loop. It is "replaced" with the size label loop that does not work well with fatter hooks or branches. Other than that, a great product.

Comfortable, Stylish, Lighweight and perfect for Layering

Very pleased with my purchase of this Down Sweater. It came in the mail very quickly, and just as described on the site. Definitely worth the price tag! Thanks!

Great experience

I got a jacket for my husband for Christmas. I could not find the package when it was delivered so i panicked and contacted patagonias customer service. They immediately understood and send me another one one day delivery.. Im so grateful you saved my Christmas! My husband loved the jacket sooo much

After about a year, the zipper broke. I contacted customer service and they were great! They walked me through my options and sent me a prepaid shipping label.

Lightweight wind resistant and easy to wear

My son is 6’3 x 265lbs and plays O Line in college. The XXL fit well with a tee underneath and room to wear with a thicker layer. This is his 3rd down sweater as he’s grown over the years. This is a go to for him.

Best Christmas Present

I bought this in Carbon for my boyfriend for Christmas and he absolutely loved it! I'm so happy with the quality of the jacket and want to steal it from him!

December 26, 2019

Very light, very warm and very cool

I have several Patagonia outer garments. Some are a bit light others are two warm for moderately cold days. The mens down sweater jacket, is perfect for days down to 20F, perhaps lower, Haven't tried at lower temps, yet.

Good casual jacket, maybe not idea for

I purchased this to be work casually, while fishing, and under my shell while skiing. Casually it's a solid jacket, though I feel that it doesn't have as much down in it as others I've seen in stores. I wore it while skiing recently and was surprised at how much I sweat in it. It doesn't breathe like I hoped it would and the ar... Read Morempits were very sweaty after just a couple of runs. I have used the down sweater vest in the past, which doesn't have the same issues, so I will likely go back to that as my skiing setup. Good looking jacket, fits well, but just may not be right for the activities I had planned to use it for.

December 23, 2019


As always Patagonia never disappoints!

December 22, 2019

Very Cool

I finally got around to making the purchase for the down sweater. I'm glad I did. It was worth the wait. The jacket fits great and it's really comfortable. Will be making another purchase soon. Great brand.

December 22, 2019

I have three down sweaters,

I have three down sweaters, all mens, one with a hood. My husband has two of them. We love all of them. When my daughter cam from California to NOrth Carolina for a visit and started to wear one of her Dad’s I decided to get one each for her and her husband. Very excited to see them open this Christmas gift. Five star products.

Latest model smells like a wet dog even if never wet

The latest model of the down sweater smells like a wet dog. I don't know if it's recycled down or what, but none of my prior Patagonia down products smell like this. I returned it and ordered the same sweater by Patagonia but got it through REI. Same smell. I also tried washing and drying it. Same smell.

In NYC feeling warm and toasty

I love my Patagonia, it’s warm, great when putting inside my backpack and I love my color~ like wine color.

Fluffy, packable, warm

Got this jacket because my NanoPuff wasn't quite warm enough for winters in my midwestern town. the Down Sweater is remarkably warm, while not being constricting or heavy. Big fan.

December 17, 2019

Love it!

Not too bulky but toasty warm to wear for everyday life on most days in eastern WA state...the orange w/ purple lining is just the thing to brighten grey winter days. Bought my husband one for Xmas!

Warm, comfy and overall a damn good jacket ever bought. I ordered X-Large and it is a wee bit tight, so that is the only blip for it. Overall.... WOW!

December 17, 2019

So Warm!!

I have the Nano Puff, which I seem to live in most of the year, but wanted a warmer jacket and this is perfect! I’m 6’0” and about 185 and got the Large. Sleeve length is perfect but it seems a tad big and definitely puffy! But the Medium I tried on at stores were way to tight with layers underneath...Very Happy with my purchase!!!

Almost Perfect, but hand pockets have Fatal flaw

This jacket is fantastic in so many ways. The warmth and fit are covered in many of the other positive reviews, so I'll focus on the one fatal flaw here: the hand pockets. Unless you zip the hand pockets shut, everything (e.g., gloves and hats) will silently slip out, and you'll be forever buying new hats and gloves - that you had tried t... Read Moreo store in the pockets! Perhaps, if Patagonial were to angle the pockets, things would not slip out... I leave that for Patagonia to solve.

Great and packable, does not last long

I purchased this jacket in March of 2018. It's my go to packable jacket for trips of any kind. It's been great. Unfortunately, over the course of these 20 months it's developed a series of holes along the bottom seam. I count ten right now. I don't expect to replace a jacket every two years.

My first down sweater is still a favorite. Probably 5 years old. I bought a black one last month. It has a smell like a wet dog. I am trying to air it out but so far no luck. Great product but I won’t enjoy smelling like a dog if it doesn’t change.

Buy it!

I have owned this jacket for many, many years. It went with me around the world, up mountains, and beside lakes. It fits great, and packs right into your pack.

My wife told me so...

She has been telling me for years to pickup one of these down sweaters and I should have. I have denied myself of an almost perfect everyday light jacket that is warm, looks good, and fits perfectly. I am now looking at a closet full of "other" jackets and wondering what needs to go.

Mens Down Feather Sweater

I love the jacket, it is exactly what I wanted. I saw the advertised model wearing the jacket was 6 feet tall and was wearing a medium, which really put the size into perspective. I am 5'8" and the jacket fits me exactly how I wanted; u to my wrists on the sleeves and just below the waist line.

Down Odor

This is the second down sweater jacket I've received of this production run that had a faint smell of a "wet dog."

6’2 200 lbs - fits perfect

This is a semi tight fit if you have a lot of belly fat but if you’re just a dude who likes to workout / hike and be active but also likes beer and pizza, this should fit just fine. Packs down relatively small for how warm of a jacket it is. I have a 35” waist and it’s perfect on the waist

Collar is still an issue...

I love the jacket, but the collar is still an issue: the zipper does not go fully up the length of the jacket, and stops about 2-3 inches short of the top. This is fine as it's more hassle to send the jacket back, which is otherwise superb. I had sent a previous Patagonia jacket back for the same reason though, so it may be a trend...

Excellent fit and function, but not super durable

Great warmth, not very durable I’ve had this jacket for about two and a half years. I’ve worn it significantly while backpacking, skiing, hiking, and at work (I work for the US Forest Service) in a variety of conditions. It is incredibly warm and comfortable and packs up to an easily packable size (I call it my “oh s**t” jacket because it serves as... Read More my ace in the hole along with a wool beanie that I can throw on at the top of an accent in nasty weather). It breathes surprisingly well and still seems to insulate to a fair degree more than other down products I’ve had when it gets wet. When I wear it under my torrentshell, it’s bomber. If I had to get it again, I would definitely get it with the hood however. My big complaint: it started to wear out super fast. From the beginning I was having to pull feathers back into the coat. it soon developed holes in the lower sleeves around the forearm and wrist, eventually extending halfway up the arm to the elbow. I’ve been on top of it with tenacious tape, but the problem still grows. The next area to develop holes was along the waist cuff, especially where the draw string bunches the fabric. I would gladly add a few ounces of weight for a more durable product. Unless you are just planning on wearing this jacket to go shopping at Whole Foods and attend mountain film festival showings, I would expect it to wear out fast.

All Around Great Jacket

My son's all around jacket, works in Montana even in winter (temps 10 - 20°F), not sure why it is called a "sweater"...oh well. The Small worked great for him when he was 12 years old, about 5'6" 90 - 100 lb.

Good lightweight jacket

Love the colors on the jacket. It breathes, but gets a star off because its fit is blocky. Also it's not nearly as warm as the cold forge hoody from black diamond that I have that's similar in weight and price. But that one doesn't breathe as well or come in such good colors.

Warm, comfy but a greasy collar

I've had this jacket for a few years. I've even had it repaired by Patagonia. I am happy with my purchase with one caveat. The collar on the light blue jacket seems to collect skin oil that builds up. I've never seen this on any other jacket before. After about 8 wears the grease is noticeable on the inside of the collar. If you don&... Read More#x27;t wash it thoroughly enough it builds up (I have a top loading washing machine).

I would ask that Patagonia update the design to use a different material for the inside of the collar so this isn't an issue.

I am 6’2”, 205 pounds and consider myself athletic. My wife bought me a large but it had too much room, returned it and got a medium. It fits much better, granted I prefer a more athletic fit.

I spend a lot of time outdoors and use a variety of outdoor apparel brands, none have warranty programs better than Patagonia.

Not warm enough

I bought this coat as a Christmas gift. The reviews were good so I felt good about my purchase. Until the person I gave it to said it wasn’t warm enough. He said his north face coat, that was half the price, is warmer and chooses to wear that unless it’s above 35-40 out. The look of it is nice and it’s comfortable, but not for winter.

An excellent ski jacket

I ski Alta/Snowbird about 70 days a year, in any weather. Winter, add a windproof shell and you're toasty. Spring, add a Nano underneath for shade/wind.

I was pretty excited to get this jacket, but it ended up being disappointing and I returned it (thankfully for a full refund) and replaced it with the Hi-Loft version.

Finally, I don't see why anyone would get this jacket (which although is 900 fill power down, is packed very lightly) over the Hi-Loft version which is much, much warmer.

Really comfortable in a wide range

This jacket is surprisingly comfortable in a really wide range, I can wear it from 10 degrees working outside to 65 in an office. It regulates nicely.

Poor Quality - feathers stick out / zipper issues

I've had multiple issues with this jacket. The feathers poke through the jacket very easily. The zipper on left pocket snags the fine stitching on the left underarm of the jacket when it rubs.

I purchased that new down sweater from you last month,and passed on the original to my brother (who had been seeing me wear it Christmas after Christmas). He jumped at the chance to own it. He loves it. Myself,however,am not so pleased with my new sweater,because it's actually a lightweight coat. Nowhere near as comfortable to live in as the old one was. I also don't believe it's any warmer! Would you please bring back the original? Sell it next to the new one,if need be,but we need that original wonderful Patagonia sweater back. It is perfect as a sweater! I must admit that I didn't take it backpacking very often,it was used in the house when it was chilly (we keep house at 65 degrees in winter) and outside under my fav three season Gore-tex lined jacket in winter. Keep on keeping on,love your ethic Stephen Wright

Built for Girly Men?

Dear Patagonia, I am writing to address a problem that I see emerging as a trend. With the advent of "skinny jeans" it seems that "skinny" or "fitted" is in.

Read Mored because of working out we develop our arms. My arms in particular are 17" in circumference,and I am not the biggest guy in the gym. I cannot find a jacket where the arms fit without having the body of the jacket look like tent like on me,whether the jacket is Patagonia or other. Jackets with tight arms are cold on the arms. To further complicate the issue backpackers also need to layer. I know this is a trend as I have an older Columbia jacket that fits just fine with nice big arm holes,and room in the sleeves but it is time to upgrade and I like the quality,weight and packability of the Patagonia goods. I was able to buy a Down sweater but it just barely fit with an XXL. I don't have any other clothing in an XXL,most of the time I wear a L. Would you please pass this along to the designers? I'd add a pic,but that would be creepy. Sign me "Old Steel and S3x appeal"

If you're looking for a coat with versatility,comfort,style,and practicality,then look no further. This coat is versatile in a sense that it can be ... Read Moreworn when it is well above freezing,and it won't make you too warm; however,it can also be worn when it is below 0 degrees and your core will remain a comfortable temperature. I purchased this coat about 3 months ago in the middle of November,and I have worn it every day since,even though there have been days of mid 50s and days of double digits below 0. The versatility doesn't stop there,it is also versatile in its functions of being worn. It can be worn to go sledding and you'll be comfortable and look good,or you can wear it over your business casual attire to a meeting for work,and you'll still look professional. It is truly a coat for any person or occasion. This is a coat that you really get a bang for your buck,which is certainly important because some people may say it is a very expensive coat. Patagonia did a good job with the practicality of this coat. It deals with rain and snow very well and has a surplus of zip able pockets in the interior and exterior of the coat. This is a helpful detail for someone who likes to go snowboarding,sledding,or play some pond hockey,and they would like to keep their phone or keys on them,knowing they won't fall out. It is comfortable to wear in any weather below 60 degrees; but,it is also comfortable if you want to add layers. You could wear a sweatshirt or another coat underneath,and still have freedom to move around and do whatever outdoor activity you enjoy. You can really turn some heads with this coat. Your confidence will never be low while wearing this,because you will always look good. Wearing a pricey brand like Patagonia can make you feel like you're high class,and you will feel good. If you are looking for a quality coat for any occasion,this is a small investment that will pay itself back.
