Review of Down Sweater

The zipper head is too small, fragile, and it is difficult to use. The Patagonia down sweater that I purchased 6 or so years ago had a much stronger and better zipper for a winter/fall jacket that this one. This zipper head is too small and too fragile. I expect that it will be break and be unusable quickly.

Very nice Jacket

Bought this jacket for my husband, he looks totally hott wearing it. It's soft, very light weight, yet very warm. It can be squeezed way down to pack. I might go back and buy one for myself.

your set for life

This is the one piece everyone needs for all season of wind cold and breathability. Total coverage and great looking especially when you roll up to rock some donuts at Surfside donuts in Pismo Beach...

Amazing jacket! My favorite

The new down sweater is so good! Fits great and the new redesign looks much better than the last version.

great coat

roomy, size accurate, warm. Protects well against wind.

warm, and light

This is a great product. I had the same in granite color, which I prefer. I left it in the closet of a motel in Virginia, hence my repurchasing. I love the products, they fit well and the last and last

Warm, comfortable jacket

Nice, well fitting warm jacket. Wish it came in a few more colors.

November 21, 2023

Amazing! Comfortable and oh so warm!!!

This was purchased for my teenager! He absolutely loves it. It is lightweight. He is able to wear it over a hoodie comfortably. It keeps him warm for sure!!

November 20, 2023

Go-to Jacket

I wear this down jacket all winter long, sometimes sleeping in it after coming home from long Ski Patrol shifts, too tired to change. Its just the right amount of insulation to wear under a shell while boarding. Warm enough (with base layer) hikes, errands around town on 25f days - Any colder and I'll need another layer or heavier down jacket.... Read More I regularly work outdoors in howling -20f windchill for 1-2 hrs with this Down Sweater + 3-in-1 Powder Town Jacket + baselayer (plus a very nice set of gloves), usually my feet get cold first before I need to warm up by the fire. Even though this isn't my heaviest down, its the one that gets, by far, the most use. Fits under boarding shell in winter or rain jacket in spring. Exterior has survived many winter hikes through brush with no tears yet. Wrist elastic bands and waist pulls keep heat in very well. Another patroller has the exact jacket, we both notice a slight bulge in the upper belly from the zipper which gives a slightly less than flattering profile that I've never seen in any other Patagonia down, but thats my only minor gripe.

November 20, 2023

Great Coat

This coat will be my primary coat when I am alpine skiing. I will wear it with and without a shell depending on the weather. Although the same size as my previous down sweater - medium - it is a bigger coat. Slightly longer sleeves, and a higher collar. More down. So, I love the coat and can't wait to wear it.

Finally a athletic cut jacket with long enough sleeves!

Love this jacket! Always had a problem with jackets running a little short in the arms but this fits perfect. More of an athletic cut which is nice and the length is great.

Very snug, comfortable and can wear with a variety of outfits. Ordered the black, and the color looks like a navy blue.

Very lightweight yet warm jacket

I love this jacket! It's definitely fragile and not something that I wear when gathering firewood. But it's very warm and comfy for it's weight.

November 6, 2023

Same great quality from Patagonia

Posting a second review as I've worn the jacket quite a bit now. for my small build a medium is slightly, and I mean slightly large. That of course is nice when a thicker under layer is needed. This jacket is warm so you may not need your heavier down jacket. Comfy and high quality. Love it!

October 31, 2023

Still a great down jacket

I am a 5ft 10.5in tall and weigh 160lbs. My old Patagonia down sweater jacket was so heavily used I had to buy a new one. I liked the old one a little more because it was not as roomy and it had a smaller collar profile. no big deal. i would like to see the pocket zipper pulls have a heaver thread leash but I can make my own. IMO, it's a nicer... Read More down jacket than other brands.

October 25, 2023

Super Warm

Recently lost a bunch of weight and needed to upgrade the same sweater I had in a large size. That sweater by the way is still perfectly fine after about 8+ years. The quality still remains the same, and I really dig the uniqueness of this plum color way.

Very disappointed

I love most Patagonia products. Ive bought them even when it was great pacific iron works. I have many pieces of clothing that is Patagonia. I bought this coat in like new condition off eBay. And I am very disappointed with it. Love the color. Fit is slightly large for me. It is simply not a good coat for hiking. Heavier than other down coats ... Read MoreI have, but also not as warm. I was chilly in it at 42 degrees F with an r1 air as a base layer. That was sitting outside listening to outdoor concert at night. The fill appears thin, and not like what I expected for 800 fill jacket. I wondered if I was sent a fake one. Is there a way to see if its fake? If its not fake, I suggest not relying on this jacket for outdoor activity under 45 except maybe walking in a city to a restaurant or work. Its too heavy for hiking, and simply not filled with enough down to be warm enough. It is by far, the worst piece of Patagonia clothing I own.

Hi Steve, thank you for taking the time to submit this review. Whether this jacket was authentic or not we're sorry to hear you're unhappy with it! It's difficult to know whether a product is truly ours unless it's purchased either through us or an authorized dealer. The current model of this jacket has 26% more down than last year's model, but is still very lightweight. Even so we do have warmer down jackets, like the Silent Down Jacket, the DAS Parka, or the AlpLoft Down Parka. In any case, we are reaching out to you to discuss the jacket you have.

October 1, 2023

Good attention to detail

Love the inner pockets. Great loft as well for such a light jacket.

Perfect except color

I love everything about this jacket! My only negative thought was I ordered a dark green and got some mint green. I like all greens, but I probably would have not ordered it.

Great Men Down Sweater

September 11, 2023

This is a coat, not a sweater.

Idk why they call this a sweater. It’s a down jacket, you can wear it over a sweater. I was hoping for a smaller mid layer that could go under a jacket. Fits bigger than I’d like and I don’t really like how it looks but it’s a well made coat.

September 9, 2023

Very warm

Great quality and fit, true to size.

Perfect for the active Backcountryist

Light & well made. Warmth you need without too much bulk

September 5, 2023

Fit was off

I was so excited to receive my down sweater but unfortunately had to return it. It was too tight through the waist and hips even though I ordered my usual size. I was able to try on the next size up at a store. The fit through the body was fine but the sleeves were about 5-6 inches too long. Nice construction but the fit was not for my body.

My son lives in his jacket. This is his third jacket as he continues to out grow them. Extremely verisitial.

Very nice but color different than picture

This is a very nice jacket, warm and fits nicely. As with all Patagonia clothing, the quality is excellent. However, the color was a little disappointing. I was expecting more vibrant sky blue as shown on the product photo. Instead the blue was a duller, greenish blue.

excited to try it in cold climates

My husband and I each got a down sweater for an upcoming trip to Scandinavia (think boats on the Fjords, ie chilly). We haven't tried them yet, but we also intend to bring them on next year's trip to Bhutan and Nepal--and it'll be even chillier in Bhutan. We are very conscious of Patagonia's sustainability work and buy from them... Read More intentionally. Also, this jacket is made from recycled fishing nets & responsible certified down. How can you go wrong?

Essentially Perfect.

The Patagonia Down Sweater is really an Essentially Perfect garment. It is definitely Essential, and it is also Perfect. The down is great; the fabric is great; the construction is great; the fit is great; the color (Dark Navy) is great. It is an extremely versatile piece, from over a t-shirt to over warmer layers to under a shell. Patagonia ha... Read Mores produced at least 2 products that I think are Essentially Perfect: the Down Sweater and Baggie's Longs. I live in Los Angeles, and in this climate I often wear both garments together, as the evening chills. This is a great jacket; I have found a down sweater I like as much as this one. 5 stars across the board. (NOTE: One minor quibble: I do wish that all Patagonia down and shell jackets had two-way zippers installed. Many Patagonia jackets used to have two-way zippers, and they really do add to the versatility and fit. I would not mind paying a little extra for two-way zippers on major jackets.)

June 3, 2023

Great fit very warm

Old reliable

I bought the original down sweater something like 15 years ago, and wore it all the time. The only damage in all that time was a tiny pinprick hole, but it was enough that I exchanged it this year; the new one is working out great.

April 25, 2023

All round winner

Hands down, great all season jacket. This is my second of this jacket. From cool camp mornings in Wyoming to snowshoeing in the Sierras to cool evenings at outdoor events, it fills the bill.

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.

April 22, 2023

Color Difference

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.

April 17, 2023

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.

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. ^^*

Short Sleeves

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 ...

Its perfect for casual wear, hiking, and even at work!

I was a bit disappointed that I did not have the option to exchange it for a different color (I had the receipt, tags and everything)

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. I am very picky about cuffs and thats the only thing I would change. I like my cuffs to fit snuggly around the wrist and not cover any of the hand or palm but honestly I am ...

Original puffer wins again!

I was looking for a jacket that was versatile enough to be worn as an outer layer for 40-50F weather and as a mid layer for 30s and below. A month into my purchase and I am very satisfied. I was heavily considering the Arcteryx Cerium jacket along with this one. I ultimately decided to go with Patagonia because of their commitment to sustainable ...

I liked the jacket. It keeps me warm all day while working and its light weight. Happy with the purchase, on top got this jacket on sale

March 5, 2023

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. I had a short sleeve shirt on the other day and soft feel of the jacket lining on my arms and neck when zipped up was so luxurious you have... Read More to try it to see what I mean. If you try this on in a store, you would be hard-pressed to leave without it. Trust me.

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?

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. If you're not happy with the fit of this jacket, please feel free to begin a [return or complimentary exchange]( at your earliest convenience.

Excellent jacket

The best down jackets ever. Ive owned two, one from a very long time ago. I was gifted one as a hand me down. At first the jacket seemed very fragile and not likely last.

Great All Around Jacket

Perfect for cold weather - excellent wind proofing, super soft, great all around product. Note it does not hold up on any wet weather. Love it!

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.

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!

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.

The extra warmth I needed! The Nanopuff is great but the Down Sweater is a little better for freezing temps! Another solid product from Patagonia.

February 10, 2023

Solid everyday jacket

I saw some reviews about redesign issues, but still gave it a try. I was replacing a down jacket I regularly wore that was a part of a Patagonia 3-in-1. 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!

comfortable, packable

Used under my shell for a spindrift pow day and and under my wading jacket. It's lightweight, warm and packable.

Just Right

I have owned the sweater jacket for 6 years. It is being sent to Patagonia to replace a broken pocket. I really appreciate the light weight to warmth level.

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.

Not a fan of this iteration...

I've owned many versions of this jacket over the years (hooded and not). I am a huge fan of it. However, this latest iteration was a letdown. The elastic cuffs have always been the weak spot for me being just a hair big, but still fairly functional. This time around, the cuffs were essentially nonexistent. Being nearly the same size as the sle... Read Moreeve circumference, the cuff overhangs the base of my hand which is really annoying and uncomfortable.

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 Patagonia
February 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]( 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.

Excellent Jacket

This is my third jacket with Patagonia in recent years and I loved all of them. The jacket works really well for skiing and cold Northeast winters. Highly recommended.

January 17, 2023

Best jacket

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.

January 17, 2023

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.

January 16, 2023

Thin material. Won't keep you warm

I am not too fond of the thin material. I expected it to be thicker to be used during winter.

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.

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.

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!

My experience with asociates at the Portland Patagonia store was Great! I will give five stars for them!
