Patagonia Men's Down Sweater Jacket

True To Size
July 22, 2021

Light weight and warm

This jacket is super light, but provides an excellent barrier to cold. In wet weather, I wear it underneath my rain jacket. Its not for polar temperatures, but it works for 3 seasons.

July 14, 2021

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.

July 13, 2021

Fits right

Runs true to size and is well made

Patagonia. Why go anywhere else?

My favorite jacket I have ever owned. Light weight, warm and durable. When I had a problem that I caused, Patagonia stood behind their product 100%. I will ALWAYS buy Patagonia when I have the need.

Down Sweater

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.

July 8, 2021

Simply a great jacket

I was looking for a simple but useful down jacket and this one's the ticket. It's just right. Light, well made, warm enough for my needs and feels durable. It's not the lightest or the fanciest but like I said, just right. Super highly recommended.

July 6, 2021

Light Weight Cozy

Very lightweight and keeps me cozy! Perfect for backpacking.

July 3, 2021

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. It is my go to coat until it gets very ... Read Morecold.

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. I plan on taking this jacket to the west coast as insurance for the cooler temps. Fits great and has good sleeve length. Bought the hoodie just to have the extra warmth from how great t...

Nice jacket

I already wrote one review for the size large, it was just too big. I returned it (super easy!) and got the medium and it fits much better. Just a bit short in the sleeves but a way better fit overall. I'm a slender 6'4". Typical Patagonia quality, and good style.

June 21, 2021

Great for everyday warmth

My go-to jacket for colder climates and colder mornings.

June 19, 2021

very nice quality,

High-quality materials extremely light very well-made

June 19, 2021

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.

June 16, 2021

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. In the Midwest you need something different than your winter parka to cover you from March - May. This is light enough to wear during the day when ... Read Moreits 35-55, and heavy enough to keep me warm if an outdoor dinner lasts past sunset (and temps drop to low 30s). It also really dresses up my sweatpants at the dog-park. While it is not a tech piece, it has a two-way zipper pocket that packs down into a little square - it was my only layer while hiking Little Si in the Snoqualmie area and totally exceeded expectations!

May 30, 2021

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.... Read More Below that it's a great mid layer. I have been impressed with how durable these jackets are even after years of use.

May 19, 2021

Very comfortable

I got this a little after winter weather was upon us, but enough to report the sweater is as comfortable as I expected. It's just a great protector against cold and wind.

May 14, 2021

Lightweight warmth

This is my 2nd one of these jackets. I decided my XL was too large and traded it in so I could get a large.

April 24, 2021

Super warm

Great jacket, good feel.

April 24, 2021


Keeps me warm, looks good and is completely functional whether walking the dog on the back 40 or snowshoeing through a Colorado Spring blizzard.

April 23, 2021

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

April 22, 2021

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.

April 22, 2021

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.

April 21, 2021

Leigh weight

What I love about the jacket is its light weight versatility

April 16, 2021


Its bit big on me, but the large was small.

April 13, 2021

Best gift ever

Bought this as a gift for husband and it has been his favorite jacket since. He loves the lightness and warmth of this jacket. Great quality product.

April 12, 2021

Had holes

Jacket had holes where the feathers are falling out off. Looks like a manufacturer defects.

Response from Patagonia
April 13, 2021

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](

April 8, 2021

Super Toasty

Bought this for extra warmth. Does the trick! Super toasty - easily layerable. Pretty wind proof. Love it. If you like the nano puff - youll love this.

April 8, 2021

Lightweight and warm

Highly recommend this jacket. True to size and very lightweight.

April 5, 2021

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]( team so we can get more details from you and guide you on how to move forward with a warranty return or repair.

Very versatile

Very comfortable and practical My brother and my father have the same jacket and thats why I bought it We all love it

April 3, 2021

Warm and lightweight

Perfect for under a windbreaker while skiing, bike riding, hiking on a cold day. A good fit.

April 2, 2021

Under Hardshell Warm Layer

Light simple and warm. Great for cooler patrol days.

April 1, 2021

Warm and comfortable

I love the jacket, its light and warm. Does not feet me tight like the Nano Puff jacket. Very comfortable I can even wear a hoody underneath for thous colder days. I prefer this jacket then the NorthFace jacket I use to wear.

April 1, 2021

Comfortable and good looking!

I enjoy the warmth of this sweater. Its light weight and allows for easy movement. Its a good three season garment.

April 1, 2021

Perfect fall/spring transition jacket.

I was looking for a jacket that was light and warm enough to wear during the transition from winter to spring and during the fall. This jacket is perfect for those 30 to 50 degree days.

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!

March 29, 2021

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.

March 25, 2021

Fashionably Warm and Lightweight

Very lightweight and comfortable. Surprisingly soft. I measure 40 inches at the chest and the large was too big. The medium fit perfect. Return process was easy. Warm for casual wear down to 25 degrees so far.

March 24, 2021

First Patagonia product

This is my first Patagonia product and it lives up to the hype, quality gear, its expensive but its money wel spent

March 20, 2021

Great gift for my husband

My husband had another down sweater and it lasted for 10 years. It is now relegated to dog walking and his hobby of painting. The new one is great and he happy to have a new sharp look!

March 19, 2021

Good for Everything

I wear it indoors and out almost year around. I wore my first one out. Recycled it by sending it back to Patagonia. I bought my wife one. Can I say more?

March 19, 2021

So versatile

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.

March 19, 2021

Light weight, very warm, easy to carry

For such a light weight jacket, its remarkably warm. Bonus, it folds up into a small pouch for an easy fit in your backpack. Will always own this jacket.

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!

March 13, 2021

Lightweight but very warm

Comfortable fit, highly packable and very warm. Great product!

March 10, 2021

Super light and warm

Love this jacket as it is so light and very warm. I get a men's size so I can fit a sweatshirt underneath when I am outside coaching in the spring.

Versatile jacket. Super warm

Great jacket. Medium works well for slender frame.

2nd one for hubby

His old down sweater is 10 yrs old, been sent in twice for zipper replacements and is just starting to be a bit thin in all the high wear areas, leaks feathers and needed to be turned into the "don't care what I do in this" coat. New one is sweet!

This product feels a little bit warm in winter & comfortable.

March 2, 2021

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.

March 2, 2021

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.

Warm things come in small packages

March 1, 2021

Nice but not as warm as expected

I was hoping this jacket would be warmer. I tend to run warm, even in cold weather and I find this jacket doesn't provide much insulation. I have to double up with another jacket when temps dip below 35 degrees F.

March 1, 2021

Great Choice

My Down's Sweater Jacket came exactly as advertised and is exactly what I was looking for. It's lightweight, comfortable and warmer in cold weather than one might imagine. I checked out many other similar jackets and feel as if I definitely chose the right one for me.

Incredibly Light & Surprisingly Warm

I totally love this jacket. I cannot get over how light it is and yet still very warm. Its so light, that you almost dont feel like youre wearing a jacket at all. The only feature I miss is that it lacks an inside vest pocket for my phone.

My Go To Jacket

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.

Needs improvement

I wear this around the house simply to stay warm because I'm susceptible to the cold. Been -20F - 0F this month in Wisconsin, so I've also been wearing it underneath my jacket.

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.

March 9, 2021

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]( 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.

February 23, 2021

Ideal insulation layer

I bought this to replace an older version of this jacket. Excellent warmth as a mid layer on cold days on the mountain or as an outer layer for walking the dog.

February 22, 2021


Fit is a little snug in the arm pits. I am 5'9 170 lbs. The sweater jacket is very warm, well made and the color matched the web site. The quality is top rated and up to Patagonia's high standards.

Great fit

Surprised that its so light yet so warm! Perfect fit, love it.

February 18, 2021

Warmer than expected

Bought this sweater when I moved to the midwest and needed something to keep me warm during the winter. Surprised that I didnt need to layer much with this sweater. In 0 degree weather I was kept warm with just a t-shirt as my base layer. Happy with my purchase.

February 14, 2021

Super Warm and Comfortable

I love this sweater. We are having a brutal winter and I put this on as a layer under my coat. Keeps me very warm. Also wear solo for short trips out. Extremely comfortable.

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.

Toasty Down

I love this sweater, it's almost too warm, even on the coldest Ventura nights. It's the BEST after a quick dawn patrol before work. It also works great when layering for snowboarding. For me, it's the all around must have Down. Thanks again for a great timeless product Patagonia!

January 27, 2021

Runs small

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. My only complaint is that the filling/feathers come out of each baffle where stitching intersects with main stitching that runs the length under each sleeve. This occur... Read Morerence has happened on two previous sweater jackets. The material needs to be upgraded or reinforced to prevent this from happening. Otherwise, this jacket is tremendous.

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.

This is my husbands third jacket in 12 years. He takes terrible care of them or they would last longer!!! This model is a similar color to his original one- goldish-yellow. Very cool!

January 12, 2021

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.

January 12, 2021

Works OK, not perfect!!!

Pros: - Decently warm jacket for foggy coastal weather (50-60 degrees F) - Packs into pocket - Not heavy, doesn't feel cumbersome to wear Cons: - Cost, but this should last sometime as long as you don't pack on 30 lbs - Not the most rugged material, tears quite easily - Not water proof - Cleaning isn't straightforward - Requires lo... Read Moreng sleeve undergarments to really trap in the heat, which limits when I wear it Overall, not a terrible jacket! I bought into the Patagonia hype but found that the value isn't there for the price.

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.

Great fit!

Fits perfectly! Length just right for @5 ft. 3 inches. Moderate warmth. Will layer with down vest for colder weather.

This jacket does it all

This jacket does it all. Multifunctional. Work or play. Thank you, Patagonia! Through the years, something I can always count on. A rarity...

Looks amazing on my son.

This was a gift for my son. He wasnt able to find a coat he liked in 4 years. We he sent me the photo of this sweater I immediately knew that that was his coat.

Really comfy, but tears easily

I love the look, and feel of it. However, if you're out in the brush, or out on the trail, it will puncture pretty easily. Mine got two holes in one week at Arches. All things aside, I would order another.

Thanks for the feedback. The Down Sweater is meant as a lightweight midlayer and does have delicate fabric. We do offer free [repairs]( for customers in the US.

Just what I needed.

Fits well and keeps me warm during outdoor activities.

January 3, 2021

Love the retro styling and color way

Im 59ish with a stocky, muscular build. I bought the green and tan one and this jacket fits me great through the arms, chest and waist. Collar zips all the way up to protect your neck from the winter chill. Great piece to add to my rotation.

January 3, 2021

Comfortable and warm

Great coat, I love it.

Awesome jacket. Light, comfy and warm. Only thing Id change - vest pocket access on the outside rather than the inside of the jacket.

This was a gift that was greatly appreciated

Great look ,and warm jacket.

This is the second Patagonia I purchased. Great fit, comfortable, true to size and can be dressed down or casual dress. The company is also great to work with. All good comments from me!

Great Jacket

I'm surprised how warm it is as I'm able to wear it in below zero temperatures with a regular shirt. It is also extremely lightweight, and would be great for traveling. Love the way it looks on me.

Lightweight but very warm!

I bought this for my husband. My son's and I both have the down sweater jacket and love it. It's lightweight, very warm and feels like you are wearing a coat of "air." Great sweater / jacket.

December 18, 2020

BF Loves it!

Bought for my bf. He promptly stopped wearing his other jackets and now this is his go-to. It's light, warm, and I think the color looks really good on him (the dark blue)!

December 16, 2020

Down sweater

One word... PERFECT. Awesome color. Getting lots of compliments. And you couldnt beat the price. $99 Hello??

December 16, 2020

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.

December 16, 2020

Nice jacket

This is a good jacket nice fit and super warm this is actually my second one.

December 16, 2020

Athletic fit?

Purchased Lg, exchanged for Md. Lg too big in shoulders, Md too small in waist. I'd describe as slim fit or athletic fit. I'm 5' 91/2", 180lb BMI 26.2 so not fat, but a little pot.

Just moved across state from rainy winters to snowy. This is the perfect purchase. Works for a wide range of temperatures is super light and makes going about daily activities super easy. Thanks Patagonia

I really like the jacket/coat. I would recommend the coat to everyone.

I miss the Early version!

I am still getting used to this replacement for the earlier down version of this ultra light "down" jacket. I miss the draw string pull at the bottom and the fit of the XL appears to be slightly more generous than I remember. In addition, I prefer the separate little stuff sack for traveling.

So light and warm

The Patagonia men's down sweater is the best for warmth without bulk and weight. Love the style too! I've been buying my son these for 9 years as well as the rest of the family. One time my son broke the zipper and Patagonia fixed it and sent it back for free . Love this company's quality!

Light weight yet warm

This is a very light weight flexible jacket. Its been perfect for mid 30s breezy conditions. The color is more on the blue side which I like. I would highly recommend.

All Around Jacket

I love this jacket for casual running to the store or shoveling the driveway. On sunny dry days I've skied in it and used it as a layer on really cold ski days. They don't use highly durable zippers on these so mine broke and had to get replaced at dry cleaners.

November 24, 2020

Say it isnt so!

I received this jacket as a replacement for a well loved and worn down sweater circa 2012. The old one has traveled around the world with me and is my go to winter piece here in New England. Imagine my surprise when I finally needed to wear the new one this fall only to find out that Patagonia has changed the fit of this classic. Instead of a techn... Read Moreical piece that is designed to be worn outdoors with layers it is now a fashion piece. I literally felt like my new one was not the same size as my old one. From tight sleeves, tight arms and super tight around the chest it just doesnt fit the same. The fit on the new one is nothing other than slim fit and should be labeled accordingly. I am incredibly disappointed in this change and the fact that the brand is representing this piece as regular fit as that is clearly not factual.

December 22, 2020

We are incredibly sorry to hear about the fit issues on this jacket. You are more than welcome to [return]( the item back to us under warranty if you'd like! We want all of our customers to be 100% satisfied with their items and we would be more than happy to email a sizing chart for items before purchase, that way you have a better idea of what the fit will be like before making your purchase.

My go to piece

I bought this little number in 2007. I have abused this garment! I trashed the zipper some years ago, then decided to turn it into a work coat. It looks the part. I recently sent it in for some work and Patagonia patched some holes replaced the zipper and cleaned charge. I was amazed. What a value. Thanks, Thomas

November 20, 2020

So Warm

Im going to really miss this jacket. When I lived in Eastern WA (where it gets relatively cold), I wore this basically every day in the winter. Just a long sleeved shirt or light sweater underneath on super cold days. This jacket is so much less bulky compared to other warm down jackets. But when I needed a replacement living in Seattle, I opted fo... Read Morer the Nano Air because it doesnt get as cold here, and also Ive tended to run warmer since weve had a baby (and are now always carrying around a baby plus gear). However, I know when we go up to the mountains or back to visit Eastern WA, the Nano Air isnt going to be warm enough. Maybe Ill save up for the hooded down sweater in the future.

November 18, 2020


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!

Just walked my dog in 35 degree weather with only a t-shirt underneath and I was warm. I love the slim fit - does not look bulky at all compared to my other winter jackets.

Engineering Flaw - if you tighten and use the hem string cinch cord, over time it will tear through the nylon shell as there is no padding or reinforcement over the cord which acts as an abrasive while its tightened to block drafts from coming through the bottom hem of the garment.

Comfy sweater jacket though , love how it stuffs into its pocket and theres a carabiner loop to attach it to just about anything. DWR coating does not last too long and once it gets soaked it will smell like a wet goose when dry, I washed in a natural garment wash for wool and delicate items, and the smell goes away. Sweater describes this as best, dont expect it to keep you warm outside in the freezing cold on its own. Layer it and its awesome, but then it an expensive layer. I used it as my driving jacket and for running in and out of the stores. For outdoor winter activities I use a Parka or layer this down sweater with a hoodie and a shell layer if theres freezing drizzle.

Super warm

Work well for fishing in cold days.

Mine Smelled Too

Got mine two weeks ago and like many others that have reviewed this jacket, in smelled like a wet dog with fishy undertones. I could smell it as soon as I opened the box. I hate mailing things let alone returning things so I washed it, and washed it, and washed it, etc...I washed the thing 6 times, did a partial run in the dryer on low heat for 30 ... 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.

Warm, But Too Big

It is light-weight and pretty warm. But, it is too big fit. It is recommended to buy one-size smaller than what you wear t-shirt from Patagonia.

Great fit and Warm Coat

This coat is a must have. The fit is great, especially for taller men. The only comment, the photo for the item on line appeared darker and richer. The actual cost is a bit more gray and muted. However, overall a wonderful cost that looks sharp for work and is great to wear on hikes.

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.

Exactly what I wanted. Fit, color and comfort are just right.

December 19, 2019

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 19, 2019

A Good Buy

A fine product, indeed.

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.

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!

Best... Jacket... EVER!

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

Nice coat!

Nice coat! very warm to be so light weight.

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!!!

December 15, 2019

My son loves this jacket. Super versatile and great weight. Especially for Texas!!

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!)

Very light and warm And fit is good

Beautiful color blue that made his blue eyes pop! Warm yet light weight. He's 75 years old, but you'd never know it in his new Patagonia Down Sweater!

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.

Perfect fit and warmth.

This is my second down sweater. I'm 6'5" and 200 lbs and the size large fits perfect. I live in North Idaho were the temps get very cold and the jacket is perfect around town and I use it for layering when skiing.

December 1, 2019

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. 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... Read Mores but a lot of extra material around the waist.

November 26, 2019

Down Sweater

Great layer, light, warm. Material seems very thin and subject to tearing. Better be careful as I don't want to ruin this nice "sweater".

As good as the reviewers say

Perfect fit, great color and very warm. I love where it can go from 30 to 0 in a few hours this is the perfect addition to my way of dealing with changing weather. Quality is worth paying for

Oxide Red Down Jacket

It's lightweight and well crafted. Very fashionable yet functional for winter.

November 21, 2019

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!

Seriously 2XL

Sizing runs small at Patagonia, athletes we are all not, if you’re going to offer smallIsh sizing maybe offer a 3x, I am by no means a really big guy.

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.

November 14, 2019

Compact warmth

As temperatures dipped into the low 20s, this down "sweater" performed beautifully both as an outer jacket for the work commute and as an inner layer for a night's photographing of a football game.

November 13, 2019


Good loft from the fill. Fit seems to be consistent with other Patagonia XL insulated jackets. So far so good, please with purchase.

November 12, 2019

My favorite color

I get at least one down sweater every year. This year’s was lime green. Perfectlybwarm and light weight.

November 11, 2019

Exceptionally warm!

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.

Excellent - Just As Expected

This is a warm versatile jacket that is well made and can be used as a standalone jacket or layered with an outer jacket. I am 5-11, 185 lbs, and ordered a large which fits well. I’ve tried other brands but always seem to come back to Patagonia for the long run.

Great on the mountain or on the drive

This is a perfect layer on a cold day or a standalone on a little warmer day. I love it because it is so light and comfortable you don’t even realize its on when you get in that cold car for the drive to the mountain.

October 28, 2019

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.

October 21, 2019

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.

October 17, 2019

The gold standard for puffies

Great fit + performance. I keep coming back for a reason.

October 13, 2019

Reliably perfect

As a ski instructor in the Midwest I need layers that I know will consistently perform. This is one of my go to layers that is comfortable, warm, and very high quality. I like the higher neck with the zipper pocket and the cuffed sleeves as both keep the cold from seeping in.

October 10, 2019

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." 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.

October 10, 2019

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

September 21, 2019

Winter weight

Perfect for whether between 30-50 degrees. Dry desert winter weather is perfect.

September 11, 2019

Much Very Good

Not cold enough in Texas at the beginning of September to use my down jacket. But I can say it fits and looks great.

September 1, 2019

Best jacket ever

I had to retire my last one after 10 years of wear. Bought a different brand last year and it just didn’t work.

August 19, 2019

Great quality

I purchased this coat because of the quality of the materials Patagonia uses. I love that this company makes material choices that support the environment.

August 16, 2019


at 185 pound, 35" waist, size 42 reg sports jacket, 5'9" I looked like a stuffed sausage in the size medium down sweater.

August 10, 2019

Use ability

I love this jacket! I have been able to take it on so many adventures due to how compact it can be after rolling it up. It is also warm and stylish!

May 25, 2019

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.

Great Updates on Already Great Product

Fit is more snug than previous models. This should be a staple item in everyone's closet. You can wear it in a wide range of temperatures.

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.

The zippers are upside down. I know people whom refuse to buy any pants or jacket with pocket zippers that open down. I don’t like them but got a jacket anyway

May 8, 2019


The jacket is perfect and does it's job. Keeps me warm when I need some extra layers and quality is great. No complaints here!
