Great all around winter coat
Down sweater is a great winter coat that looks good and keeps you warm from strolls in the park, shopping in town, to drinks by the fire pit. Some reviewers have an issue with the cuffs but I actually prefer the update. If you wear a watch its perfect because the loose cuff easily rides over your watch versus being caught in or out of the jacket. C... Read Moreuffed gloves easily slide under the jacket without having to adjust the fit. I also like that the jacket sleeves ride at a perfect length at the base of the wrist. Lastly, the drop in interior pockets are a great addition for storage. Best Patagonia jacket for fall, winter, and early spring hands down.
I got the Sedge green but when it arrived it seemed completely washed out and minty/seafoam. Just thought the pictures online were not a good representation of the product color. Also not a big fan of the very subtle two-tone but that's just me. Fits wide around the waist for me but sleeve length is perfect, I'm 6'6 190
Close to perfect
This was the exact look I was after. For reference, I am 5 feet 11 inches, 175 lb with a 40 inch chest and the medium is literally a perfect fit. I have room for a sweater or light sweatshirt for layering. I originally ordered a large (way too big) so I appreciated the seamless return/replacement process. I am often between medium and large with ot... Read Moreher clothing companies but sizing here was very accurate. The sleeves are a bit long and the cuffs could be a little tighter but I am nitpicking here. Highly recommended!
Very Good All Around
I really liked the old model but after a few years of wearing it some rips and tares formed. I went to my local store to ask about repairs and they replaced it with no additional cost instead!! The new jacket is great. The materials seem tougher and the jacket feels warmer.
Super Light and Warm
I love this jacket/sweater...light as a sweater but must more versatile and my warmest jacket in my Patagonia collection. I have a 42' chest and I typically wear Large but on occasion (this is one of them) a Medium fit much better. I recommend you try it on in a store as the online chart would left me swimming in the Large.
Not cold in the high mountains
I went to mountain Alps (Switzerland) and stayed outdoor (~0 degF) for at least 20 minutes but I didn't feel cold where the jacket was covering me. I spent a good money on this jacket and I didn't regret it. Now, I need another Patagonia jacket for the fall and spring seasons. ^^*

I ordered the Down Sweater XL in black. The tag says it is XL Black but it is clearly not black. I lay it next to my black jacket from two years ago and you can really tell the difference.

Poor cuff design
I can't figure out why they changed the design of the cuffs and got rid of the elastic. Now they hang halfway down my hand, which is annoying! So I decided not to buy this jacket anymore but will search for an alternative.

Had bought for look and warmth however had to return due to excessive bits of down coming out through the seams. More than what an average person would expect from a new jacket.

Maybe the best purchase I have ever made from Patagonia in 40 years
I don't know why I never bought a down jacket from Patagonia in the past but I'm sure glad I got the Down Sweater a few weeks ago. It's super lightweight and well insulated. The material feels so nice against my skin. I love wearing this jacket.
Great Warm Product but easily damaged
Love the jacket, keeps me extremely warm, but when receiving I noticed threads already sticking out, one actually continued to unravel causing a small hole to form. I used a patch to cover it but probably should have exchanged it for another one.

The updated materials and increased fill weight are a big plus and make for a big improvement over the older model. The sleeve length even initially appears perfect for someone tall and thin like me. However, when the down fully lofts as you wear the jacket, the sleeves become shorter as the channels expand (like when a spring recoils) making them ... Read Moreat least and inch or two shorter than the prior model. It seems like the higher fill and fuller channels was not accounted for when this was designed (similar to the newer Fitz Roy models).

Honestly 1 step away from perfect
The fit is perfect. I have a wide back and large chest so usually items are uncomfortable for me to extend my arms but this is not. Torso is tapered nicely and length is great.

This is the best Patagonia jacket I have ever purchased
The first thing you notice is how lightweight it is - 13 oz. And you notice how warm the down insulation is - the feathers seem to "dampen" the warmer air temp in the jacket and keep the cool air out.

Very nice jacket - wanted Patagonia for some time.
The size would likely be perfect if I wasn't 6'5". The sleeves are fine but the jacket is a little short. I typically buy tall sizes, but not available. Would an XL give me more length in the body of the jacket?
Response from PatagoniaMarch 9, 2023
Hi Peter, thank you for taking the time to write a review. If you were to size up to an XL in the Down Sweater, you would gain an inch in length.

Perfect warmth, odd color variation not in photo
I love my sweater. Warmth is perfect and jacket is well-done quality. Size is perfect especially for my tad longer arms. Only surprise that I knocked down in rating was bottom half of jackets color was a darker red than top half. Wish that had been disclosed before buying as I would have switched to black color.

Warm & Versatile
Im 5ft 10in, 160lbs, and a medium is perfect. Ive worn the coat in single-digit temps, with layers, on 40 degree days, and even for ski trip. This coat has done it all. It has held up and been the perfect go-to that isnt bulky like a parka. It also pairs well with dress attire for a night out on the town. Great coat that Id recommend to anyone.
Light, Warm, Perfect Layer
I went through a few sizes and options before settling on Down Jacket. I am thrilled with its fit, weight, and warmth. Its great on its own or under a shell. I can also wear a vest underneath for really cold days. I also appreciate Patagonias staff on helping me find just the right jacket for my needs. Ill be back for another purchase!
Love the jacket. It did arrive with a pull in the fabric in the upper left front portion, but other than that it is good.

Excellant All Purpose Jacket
I purchased the Men's Down Sweater and I love this jacket as much as the Men's Down Sweater that I have owned for 6 years.

Solid everyday jacket

I wore it for years, but it was just not as warm and it was time to replace it. The Down Sweater is great. Warmer than I expected and fits over a hoodie. So far so good!
Good medium weight jacket
I bought this coat to fill in the warmth gap between my nanopuff and my ski jacket. Sometimes you don't want to layer, you just want the coat that suits the temperature.

Problem with the feather leakeage
I bought a jacket couple of months back. I used it for a hike. I experienced a lot of feather leakeage.
Response from PatagoniaFebruary 9, 2023
Hi Lopsang, thank you for submitting this review. You may be able to reduce the feather loss by grasping the feather from the other side of the baffle and gently tugging it back inside, then rubbing the fabric firmly between your thumbs to help to close the hole. Please avoid pulling any feathers out, which will make the hole larger. If this doesn't help, you can absolutely [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it at any time under our Ironclad Guarantee.
Love this jacket!
I love this jacket! I should have bought one years ago. It fits perfectly, super light and not overly warm. It is not a garment for super cold temps, but is a great layer for that. Looks pretty sharp as well, even on an old guy like me. A temperature rating might be a good thing for someone looking for a colder weather jacket.
Great jacket with one major flaw
This jacket is almost perfect. It feels warm, durable and has a true to size fit. The only flaw holding this back from being perfect is the loose wrist cuffs.

We'll be happy to help with the return and provide some other insulated jackets that may work better for you. Thanks for the review Eli!
I hate the cold with a passion and usually wear a hoodie and really thick jacket. This eliminates both. Its slim and comfortable and its breaks the wind amazingly. I can wear it when its 60 and be not to hot like a thick jacket might but i feel warm when its 20 degrees like if i had on a big jacket and multiple hoodies on.
Love the Men's coat/sweater
Really comfortable "sweater" which is their name, I'd call it a light coat. The down filling doesn't make you hot at all, and you never get cold. Looks great, get lots of complements. I got the grey with blue zipper and lining. When completely zipped, it doesn't bother my neck as most do.
Warm, all purpose, go-to winter jacket
This jacket has already become my go-to jacket. It retains warmth in cold conditions while regulating temp at higher temps (in 50s F) admirably. I got a size M (I usually wear size S) and it fits nice. I can use it as layer 2 or even 3 without looking like the Michelin man. The pockets are deep and the inner compartments can easily hold gloves, and... Read More for me, a baby diaper or two (sigh - new parent here). The collars are slightly taller than I would have preferred (no hoodies), but I see its utility. The cuffs are snug fitting. Perhaps slightly tighter fit would have been nice. Construction quality is solid. I do see a few threads (not down) around the cuff area. Overall an excellent jacket!
Its an oven! But lightweight
I work for a retailer that sells this brand and Ive got to say, Patagonia is the warmest jacket compared to Northface, Arcteryx, and mountain hardwear. The weight is exceptional and the built is stylish and very loose to do activities like climbing. Its worth every penny!
Amazing Jacket for Everyday Wear
I've been wearing this jacket daily since the purchase. It looks nice and wears nicely, I am usually size Large and this fits true to size and leaves a bit of room inside as well, which I do not mind. The only issue I have with it is the constant leaking of small feathers. It has been my first month only so I hope the leaking will stop eventua... Read Morelly, but so far it is quite substantial and it gets on my sweaters and the back of my backpack. Also, there is a specific smell if the jacket gets wet under the rain, but it is bearable.
The Nano version has been my casual go to for years. When looking for a warmer puffy for colder weather, I decided on this jacket and am now very pleased. Easy to layer, pack or just slide on to go out. Company ethos will keep me loyal to Patagonia, but no compromise was made here.
Warm, Light and Comfortable
This down sweater (i'd call it a puff jacket) is lightweight and super warm. It was a gift for my husband who loves it! It packs small & flat, and always returns to its shape. Can be worn under a storm weather parka when he goes sailing. Looks smart for any occasion.
Fit varies based on color
I really like the new Down Sweater. It's very comfortable and warm, but I had an issue with a variation in fit between colors. I purchased a black one and a red one, and the red one fit perfectly while the black one was much tighter at the bottom hem.

Hello Patagoina: This is my
Hello Patagoina: This is my third men's down sweater. The first one's zipper was very weak and failed after a couple years' use. It also developed many small holes at the seams that allowed the feathers to escape. The second, which I'm wearing now, has a much stronger zipper ... no problems with it at all ... nice! But the secon... Read Mored one also has developed many small holes that allow feathers to escape. I bought some Tenacious Tape gore-tex patches on Amazon to repair the holes, and that has worked fairly well. The most recent (third) sweater was a recent Christmas gift from my wife, who's bothered more by the escaping feathers than I am. Unfortunately the ends of the sleeves were very large, allowing the sleeves to droop down halfway over my hands. The elastic seemed very weak. Additionally, the zipper on the most recent sweater was tiny, compared to the zipper on my current sweater. I fear that it regressed back to the quality of the weak, failed zipper on my first sweater. For the two reasons mentioned, we returned the recently purchased sweater, and I'm just going to keep taping up the holes in number 2 that I'm wearing now. With regular repairs, I think it will last a few more years. Hope this feedback is helpful. Best, Allen

Response from PatagoniaJanuary 13, 2023
Hi William! Thank you for writing us a review. We're sorry to hear that your jacket is leaking some down. It is completely natural for some of the down and feathers to escape through the fabric, particularly in the seams. It is normal for this to happen, particularly in newer products when the down has not had an opportunity to settle. That said, if the jacket seems to be shedding an excessive amount of down you're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Best in Class
This coat is sleek, comfortable, and toasty warm. It gets the job done vs. cold MN winters and usually holds its own even against wicked windchills. Zipper is reliable as well, which is so important. Only knock is the color is a little blue-ish- not a jet black. But that doesnt affect performance.
The waist is super tight, arms very long-and baggy.

Hey Richard, thank you for the review. We're sorry to hear of your disappointment with the cuffs. Even if the jacket was purchased at REI, we can still accept it back for a merchandise credit.
