Great jacket for the foggy summers days of San Francisco
I love the jacket and hope it lasts a long time! Only thing that isn't perfect is the sleeves are very tight and getting my hands out is a little difficult. I try to be very gentle when pulling my hands out so the material does get stretched and age prematurely.
I ordered this for my husband for Father's Day. It fits in the body perfectly, I ordered a large because I have found that Patagonia sizes are smaller that other sources. this jacket fits like a Medium from other sources. Also the sleeves are too long but if folded back up the sleeve it works, but not ideal. In truth, I love Patagonia product... Read Mores and the responsible way they run the business, socially very conscientious.
A great all around coat
This is a great all around coat. In western PA, I start wearing this in September and make use of it through the winter and into early spring. The coat works well by itself and as it started to get colder I use it under a hard shell. It packs small so it is easy to throw into a small backpack or shoulder bag.

Great camping jacket
I used this jacket camping in the early Summer in the mountains. Great to slip on in the morning when temps were low and when I got cold in the middle of the night.

Great jacket or layer
A very nice piece from Patagonia. Really like the multi-color version - looks great. Sizing is little tough for me, I went with the large as I'm a slender 6'4" but had to return it for a M. The L was just too baggy in the chest, and the M fits much better. Could still be a bit longer in the sleeves but it's fine.
Warm and Stylish
I'm 6'1" 215. BMI of 27-30 depending on the season. This jacket fits comfortably around my torso and well through the shoulders / arms. I love this jacket and it does exactly what I want.

Love, benchmark down sweater
My wife took my size medium, which was getting snug on me so I bought this in a large. I'm now 5'10" 185 and it's the perfect fit/cut. Wow, what a fantastic and versatile jacket and amazing warmth to weight ratio. I wear this as my typical go to jacket in Wisconsin fall and winters even when temps get down into the 10-25F range....

Amazing quality and feel
When I first got it out of the package, it looked a little bit smaller, but as soon as you touched it, you immediately see the level of craftsmanship and quality that you're dealing with. It feels amazing and even though the fabrics feel light, it's very warming. Great product, totally recommend
My first Patagonia disappointment
This is actually my second review of this jacket. Originally, I had nothing but good things to say. It was a 5-star product and one that I fell in love with almost immediately. In a lot of ways that made what happened next even more disappointing. I used the jacket a grand total of three times before feathers started to come out of the jackets seem... Read Mores (not sure if thats the correct spelling on that, I apologize if not). Strangest of all the activities I used it for were not demanding. I used it around the house, shopping, and sitting around the fire at my friends house late into the night. The day after that last gathering I noticed six different spots where feathers were leaking. I ended up taking it to the Patagonia store I bought it from and they took it for store credit. I'd like to point out that what I'm describing is abnormal for Patagonia's product quality. I have several other products from them that have preformed much better. I believe that I may have received a faulty product, so your experience with this jacket might be better. Personally, I'd recommend going with a synthetic option instead as I've found them to be more reliable. The ones I'm looking at now are the Micro puff and DAS light.
My favorite jacket
I'm now on my second Men's Down Sweater. The first lasted for a solid 9 years without losing too much down and still being warm and insulating; it never tore despite me using it for hundreds of camping, hiking, skiing and other outdoor trips. I still use that one, it's just pretty stained up and it's the bright blue, so I went w... Read Moreith a new black option. I always run hot, but something about how this jacket is so well made, I can wear it for a much wider range of temperatures than I can with other jackets before I'm either sweating in mild temperatures or cold in very low temperatures. I recommend this jacket to all my friends.
Jacket had holes where the feathers are falling out off. Looks like a manufacturer defects.
Hello Yency, we're sorry that the down was coming out of your jacket! This can be the nature of down insulated items. We recommend pulling the feathers back in from the opposite side of the fabric and then massage the fibers back together, essentially sealing the hole back up. If this isn't working for you, feel free to send it in for a [warranty return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Warm, but weak
I love the look of this jacket. Its super warm, and I wore it under my shell when it got cold on the slopes. Thats why theyre getting 2 starts instead of 1 here. I also wear it walking around campus in chilly weather with a backpack on my back. However, this jacket is very weak. After a few weeks of just casual wear, I noticed holes in the jacket, ... Read Moreand I noticed down feathers all over my room. Im extremely disappointed with Patagonia here. A lot of people tell me how great and long lasting Patagonias products are, and so this was my first purchase from them. I unfortunately cant agree with these people. Its not like I wore this jacket through a thorn bush, either. Just from wearing it super casually, holes started ripping in the jacket and the down came out. I would understand if it ripped on a hike by catching on a branch or something, but I literally didnt even get a chance to use this thing for real before small holes started to rip from really basic, casual use. I really wanted to love this jacket, and I hate writing a review like this because I know Patagonia does a lot of good with the money I gave them. But this product simply didnt live up to the expectations I had for it, or the hype other people were talking about. I really hope Patagonia makes this right and repairs or replaces my jacket. That alone could add or even subtract stars from this review.
We're so sorry to hear of the disappointment with the Down Sweater Jacket. We also expect more life and use out of the gear we make, so this would absolutely be considered a warranty issue. Please reach out to our [Customer Service](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) team so we can get more details from you and guide you on how to move forward with a warranty return or repair.
Finally, I found my perfect jacket!
It feels like Ive been through every puffy Patagonia has to offer this last week. I was recommended this jacket by a close friend after complaining to her that I still couldnt find a Swiss Army Knife jacket. At first I was skeptical because I have gotten synthetic jackets for a long while. But, after using this for a bit I can say with confidence t... Read Morehat I finally found it. Here is whats good: lofty and warm, feels like a warm hug, packs down really well, colors and materials are spot on, quality is good (as it should be, quite an expensive jacket), is warmer than it looks. I have one complaint about this jacket. It doesnt have interior drop in pockets! Please Patagonia! Put drop in pockets in all the jackets! All in all really, really good. Fits me well although I am on the more slim side of things. I dont think you can go wrong with this jacket. I look forwards to having it for years and years to come!
Just the right amount of insulation
It's just the amount of warmth I wanted, typically use it for mid-20's to mid 40's kind of weather. At 5'5" but with broad shoulders, a medium is a perfect fit. A discreetly tucked in hood could be an improvement--the jacket that replaced this with had one which came in handy.
I've had a bunch of these over the last twenty years and I wear them until they are toast. Great for casual wear when it's pretty warm because they breathe, great as a layer beneath a shell for winter when it's cold. I prefer the older inner pocket with the horizontal zipper to the newer one with the vertical zipper.
Season After Season, My Go-To Piece
I have owned this jacked for more years than I know. At least 5, made as many as 10. It is a go-to piece for every use in Vermont. First, I wear in the house on cold winter nights ...and we get a lot of those in the mountains. I wear it out in fields doing work, out walking the dogs, hiking and bushwhacking, in the car, over layers of fleece and po... Read Morely and just about every place one can imagine. It is probably my favorite all around piece. It is light and versatile and warmer and more stuff able than synthetics. And it cleans up well. I toss it in the washer and then the dryer with tennis balls and voila, like new. Two years ago, I was shoveling snow against the house and didn't see a vent behind me. Rrrrip! Sent it to Patagonia and they cheerfully repaired it, not just the rip but a few worn places. I made a mistake earlier this winter, I traversed several acres of briars in a logged area and back again. The rips were big and gnarly and I sliced my jacket up in 4-5 places. I asked Patagonia what to do. They said, "Send it to us, we'll see what we can do." Like me, Patagonia likes to see stuff last as long as it can. Unfortunately, after looking at it, the folks in the repair department said it was "beyond repair". I think they were right. The time to repair it was more than creating a new jacket. But wonderful Patagonia wasn't done. They gave me a partial credit I could use toward a replacement. I ordered a replacement right away. Same great jacket, but I have to say the newer version feels a little more snug than my old jacket. This does happen at Patagonia. Same styles can change fit slightly over time. I still love the jacket, but maybe I will have to put the heavier fleeces on the outside. That would have been a good idea in the briar patch... Thank you Patagonia for my replacement credit and for all those years of service before and to come with the new jacket!
Sleeves a bit too big
I wanted to love this jacket - don't hate it either. The sleeves, towards the bicep area, are way too big. Wish the sleeves were a bit more snug/tighter. (Or maybe I should start working out) Also, the collar does not stay up, other than it, I like/enjoy it. Fits perfect everywhere else. It's Patagonia, so I get compliments on it.
My favorite Jacket ever
I bought my First down sweater around 2005 and I just replaced it! for over a decade this was a jacket worn daily in the NC mountains, it saw action as a mid layer when snowboarding, saw tons of miles on local trails, functioned great as my outer layer going to and from class or work ( when in college and after while teacher for the same institutio... Read Moren) and even looked classy going out for diner and drinks! I sent my old one in for repair as the front zipper had given out and some of the down had gone missing after an unknown amount of adventures. My jacket was deemed unrepairable so I received a merchandise credit for about 1/3 the price of a new one. My first one was black, I went with fire red this time because I had never seen another human in that color! I own a ton of gear from Patagonia and I have not been let down yet, what a great company; I will always support Patagonia as you really get what you pay for.

This will be my second jacket as the first one has finally lost it's loft and feathers from years of daily use. The jacket is warm and very packable.

Upon receiving I thought the insulation was a bit thin. I'm not comfortable wearing too many layers so i always wear a t-shirt underneath only. Pros= light weight, elastic cuffs, adjustable hem. Cons= insulation is a bit thin for my liking. the zipper/neck comes up too high when fully zipped, the zipper constantly rubs underneath my chin which is annoying, perhaps if you have a longer neck? Nothing to stop the down from migrating so far no issues though. The fabric is thin so I'll have to be careful. I buy patagonia because their size have always been spot on for me. Afterthought: I wish patagonia would also cater to the everyday wearer with tougher,thicker fabric for durability everyday use with the warmth of down.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a detailed review and we are sorry you weren't fully satisfied with your purchase. The Down Sweater Jacket is one of our lighter weight insulation jackets. For more warmth while still maintaining that causal look, you could consider trying the [Bivy Down Jacket](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-bivy-down-jacket/28323.html?dwvar_28323_color=KPF) or The Jackson Glacier Jacket. You could also consider looking into some of our other warmer, more technical insulation pieces such as the Fitz Roy Down Hoody. Please note that all of our products are backed by our Ironclad Guarantee so if you aren't happy with this, you can return it and get something that works better for you.
Warmer than it looks, wish they offered a tall version
I bought this expecting to need more layers, but I've been walking, biking and cross country skiing with wind chills of 25-30 below, wearing a t-shirt and long sleeve shirt under. I wish they had a tall version of their sizes like other companies. The torso and sleeves are a bit short for a large.
Super Light and Super Warm
This sweater jacket is by far the best on the market. It's super light and packable, but extremely warm. When worn with an outer shell it makes an unbeatable ski jacket combo.

It is a very comfortable jacket. The downside, only a minute after you step outside the jacket develops the stench of a sweaty dog. Even returned it and got a new one, same thing happened.

Surprisingly warm and light.
My husband absolutely loves the jacket! Fits true to size, great for California winter weather. The color looks a bit darker on the screen but I thought to myself lets give it a try, it was on sale at such a good price. The color is actually a bit lighter in person which works perfectly.
Works OK, not perfect!!!

Thanks for the detailed feedback. We'd love to address some of your concerns. The fabric on the Down Sweater is a lightweight material to make every ounce count on an alpine ascent. It is designed to be worn as a mid layer, and while it's weather proof, for expeditions when waterproof gear is needed we suggest a shell outer layer. As far as cleaning goes all you need to do is toss it in a washing machine and tumble dry it on low with some tennis balls to re-loft it. If you don't love it however, you're always welcome to return it.

Not fit / tailored
While the style doesn't indicate it is a regular fit, I did anticipate a "sweater" instead of a "jacket" would have a tighter fit to the middle. It is very much a regular/classic cut for a large middle body. While the Large arms and height may be suitable for a taller individual, it is not appropriately slim if you are.
I miss the Early version!
I am still getting used to this replacement for the earlier down version of this ultra light "down" jacket.

My first one was purchased in 2007. It's still great, though I have "girthed up." Will be sending it to the "worn wear" folks. Very warm, with little bulk. If you have a micro fleece jacket, cotton flannel shirt, or sweater underneath, it is much warmer than others seem to think. Top notch product!

Read Moremins and could still smell it. Washed it another two times, did a partial dry and could still smell it but it was fading. I let it air dry overnight outside under cover. I could still smell it in the morning so I washed it two more times and did the same half hour on low dry and could still faintly smell it so I hung it up again outside and left town for four days. When I came back it did not smell anymore. I had to work out all the areas where the down kind of balled up inside which worked surprisingly well. The large has good arm length that doesnt creep up the wrists when I extend my arms. Im 61 and got a 34 waist and can say that for me the girth of the jacket would house someone with a larger waist line than me. Im right around 190. The pictures show a model my height but skinnier wearing a medium. I didnt trust it as I didnt want any chance of the arms being too short. Maybe a medium would have worked. While its not a trim fit it works just fine for me.

If you are Sponge Bob Square Pants, this jacket is for you. If, however, you're shaped like a normal human, skip this jacket. It fit like a square, short and wide, which is too bad bc it's the best color.

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.
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.
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. I sent in the jacket and received a gift card for the amount to purchase a new one from the website. I received my new one and love it! The whole process was great and my issue was resolved....

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
PATAGONIA IS SIMPLY THE BEST COMPANY
It was really funny that out of the 20 family members that came to Christmas 16 had on the Patagonia Down Sweater! I know readers of this review will think Patagonia put up this review, and I can assure you that they DID NOT!! Patagonia's customer service, their stance on the environment, the quality of their products, etc. - ALL COMBINED, mak... Read Moree Patagonia a company I truly value and patronize. When I see someone wearing a Patagonia Down jacket, and I am wearing mine - it's uncanny how often we end up telling each other that we love our coats and how much we LOVE the company! Happy New Year to all!
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.
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.
Daniel, we're sorry to hear this Down Sweater didn't work for you. The fabric is recycled, but the insulation is 800-fill-power Advanced Global Traceable Down. We're glad you were able to return it, but don't hesitate to [reach out](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) if you ever want help to [return](https://help.patagonia.com/s/topic/0TO1L0000002yyTWAQ/returns-exchanges) future orders.

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. Meanwhile, when you're looking at the price of this jacket, factor in replacing a pair of gloves or hat (perhaps many!)
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.
Hi Jonathan. We're sorry to hear you're having durability issues with this jacket. Please feel free to either send it in to us for a [free repair or a warranty return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
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.
Hi Larod, thanks for taking the time to write us a review! We're really sorry to hear about the smell your experiencing with your down jacket. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return).
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. It was my every day jacket as well as my adventure jacket. Through every tear, Patagonia fixed it. They always made sure it was ready for my next adventure, which should be enough of a selli... Read Moreng point. Not long ago, I was in an accident and lost the jacket that has traveled the world with me for the last 8 years (not my choice, cause like I said...accident). Despite it all, my first purchase was another down sweater jacket, because I knew I had more adventures ahead of me. Make the same choice.
Great Jacket. Warm and Light
Overall great . Warm for the weight, great wind resistance and DWR. Misses 4 stars due to the sizing. Been wearing Patagonia for longer than I remember . I'm 6'1" 180 33" waist and historically dead on large, also in other brands. In Patagonia lately Larges are too big but Medium way too small.. This jacket fits in the shoulder...

Loved it until durability failed
I loved the look, comfort, and style this jacket provided, however, it didn't last. I purchased one around 10/2018 and I noticed 2 holes in the upper-back region where some feathers were falling out around 8/2019. I'm fairly careful with my garments and assume the material was just non-durable. I didn't wear it during the summer so I... Read More got about 5 months of wear out of it. I love my other Patagonia jackets, but this one didn't last!
Hi Doug, thanks for taking the time to write us a review! We're truly sorry to hear about those holes developing after such little use.

Most comfortable jacket (Sweater) I've owned
This is my second M'S DOWN SWEATER. I had my first one for 3 years, and lost it. It was so light and comfortable I had to get another one. It's great for spring and fall weather when the weather is above freezing. I sometimes wear a sweatshirt underneath on colder days and it is very warm. I would recommend it to anyone as an everyday cas... Read Moreual jacket.
So much warmer than the Uniqlo down jacket that I've been wearing for the past few years but it packs up just as small for travel. Obviously pricier than Uniqlo, but worth the investment because it's so warm and of excellent quality. Planning to purchase for other members of our family.
Seems like a good jacket
Seems like a good jacket but the shell got a hole from a park bench within the first weeks of wear.
Hi Jeff, it's a bummer when this happens! The outer fabric of the Down Sweater is very delicate. Please feel free to send it in to us for a [free repair](https://help.patagonia.com/s/topic/0TO1L0000002yyOWAQ/repairs).
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.
This is the second down sweater jacket I've received of this production run that had a faint smell of a "wet dog." I'm guessing that it must be the down and I question if it's a new source of down that is bringing this scent. Other than that, this is an everyday go-to when the temperature is suitable. Fantastic jacket and a... Read More staple to any wardrobe. Always a 5 star, except for this review and the odd smell the jacket has.
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
Poor quality, disappointing
This was my second Patagonia down jacket I purchased. The first jacket lasted over four years. However, this jacket could not even hold up for one season. The shell is now made from a thinner material that wears down easily. The elbows were worn out after several months and I was shedding down wherever I went. Disappointing to see my favorite jacke... Read Moret is no longer made to the same high standards as before. Expensive jacket to only last two months.
We're really sorry your Down Sweater didn't hold up. Please feel free to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) that back to us under warranty and reach out to our [Customer Service](https://www.patagonia.com/customer-service.html) team if you have any questions.
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.
Thank you so much for letting us know about your sweater. We do our best to make sure our products last a lifetime and our customers are satisfied, please go ahead and [send](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return) that in as a warranty return.
