I absolutely love the down sweater jacket. It is perfect to wear on the street, on a hike, or biking. I ordered the blue color and I LOVE IT! Great pop of color. Small works for me as I don't like my stuff big. I could fit a light sweatshirt or sweater under even with a small. Great jacket, warm and comfy!
Almost 5 star jacket
Love the colors, love the warmth, the weight..the only reason I gave this jacket 4 stars is because of the shape/fit. The medium zips on my hips but is little big overall. Though its not a deal breaker and will be okay with layers underneath but I wish I Patagonia made their womens jacket more suitable to female body shape.
Perfect for horseback riding. Works as a perfect robe!

Soft and cozy but little tight around the butt
This is really the perfect transition jacket. Its so silky smooth and comfy. I am 5'7" and dont have very large chest and it fits great everywhere except the bottom. It is definately borderline tight if I try to pull it down a bit towards the bum, again not a huge problem for me but still a thing.
Loved the jacket but opted for the nano puff because not as bulky since end of winter. Sleeves of down jacket actually better length than nano puff. I have long arms but nano puff still a little too long. Both jackets fit true to size with room for layering. Medium jacket. 56 and 120 lbs.
Love the fit but lacks durability
I've had this jacket for 1 year and worn casually as an all-purpose coat - to the office, to run errands etc. It developed a tear in the elbow with several months of wear. The hole has torn further after following the exact recommendation from patagonia to put gear tape on the hole and the jacket is now unwearable. No accountability or options...

I love red, but reds often have a warm undertone that I cannot wear - roamer red is perfect. I also have the torrentshell in the same colors so I can mix and match. I would love to see this jacket in some paler pastel colors such as light blue or light green. My husband also has this jacket in 3 colors and he loves it as much as I do.

I love everything about this jacket. It provides remarkable warmth for such a light weight jacket. Nothing constricts or constrains.

Light weight and warm
Even though, this jacket is light and warm. It fits slightly big and sleeves are too long. Im waiting for Patagonia to come out with petite sizes. The roamer red is more of a mauve color instead of a dark red as depicted online. I may return mine in exchange of a different color. Other than that, its a great jacket.
The Best Jacket Ever
I think this is my 5th Down Sweater purchase, and it remains simply the best. This time I tried one of the synthetic-fill jackets (to spare the poor ducks), but it just didn't have the feel, lightness, or fit of the Down Sweater. I wear it all the time, every day, except on the very coldest days here in Boston. I love that it's so tiny &a...

Thank you, Patagonia, for continuing to make this wonderful jacket, without changing it too much or screwing it up.
Versatile Warm Layer
I really love the new down sweater jacket. I bought my first Patagonia Nano Puff back in 2000. I loved it, and have worn it all these years. It's had zipper replacement with Patagonia, and it is almost completely worn out. I cut heart shapes from Gear Aid Tenacious Tape to cover small holes and warn spots, and kept it looking sweet. I recently... Read More made the decision to try to replace it, and chose the down sweater, so I could get the same brilliant color - Catalan Coral. I am so thrilled with it! I layer it for Nordic skiing. I use it for casual walks. It's awesome for hiking and backpacking. The color is brilliant. I love to look back at photos with the pop of color in the jackets. I purchased the size large, so I could layer under or over the down jacket. The adjustment pulls to tighten the bottom of the jacket keep the fit close and warm. Thanks Patagonia, for all you do making high quality merchandise, and supporting organizations, like Montana Wilderness Association and others. Your commitment to quality and activism are extremely important.
Lightweight, warm, durable
This is my second "down sweater" in the last 15 years. That speaks for itself. When my other one had so many spots and tears I decided to replace it with the same thing. It has served me well. I wore it for 15 years under ski jackets for extra warmth. I ice skated in it for years and just wore it outside when I didn't want a coat and... Read More still needed warmth. There are many similar cheaper versions of this. Actually, after I discarded the first Patagonia I had, I went cheap and bought one at a department store for a third of the price. It didn't even last one season. The Patagonia one, on the other hand, I washed and washed and it never lost the filling. It never changed shape. I know now, that it is well worth the pretty high price. So to conclude, there are 4 major things with this jacket: It is warm, lightweight, lasts forever (through many washings and dryings) and it looks good too. I recommend this product, it is a bit pricey but worth it.
Great jacket but not warm enough
This is a beautiful coat but it's just not warm enough for New England winters. I ended up returning it for that reason.

Thanks for the review on the Down Sweater Jacket. Please do not hesitate to use Customer Service as a resource when deciding on a jacket that will work best for you, for any season. We'll typically ask you questions on personal body temp, where you'll be using the jacket, and how you'll be using the jacket. After doing some research, we see that New England can get anywhere from -10 degrees Fahrenheit to -20 degrees in the winter, that's very cold! Our Down Sweater, while a great jacket, simply would not be able to do the job. We'd recommend the [Women's Frozen Range 3-in-1 Parka](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-frozen-range-3-in-1-parka/27981.html?dwvar_27981_color=TOPB&cgid=root) in it's place. The parka length will give added warmth and it comes in at 308 g's of down versus the Down Sweaters 95 g's. Plus the shell option makes it great for the snow, check it out!
Great jacket but the color does not match the color in the picture. It was a disappointment. But so happy after 40 something years shopping at Patagonia they finally carry XXL for women!
Hey! thanks for taking the time to write this review and we are also stoked to finally offer extended sizes for women. Sometimes, depending on what type of device you're using to view the item (phone, tablet, computer), the color may appear different on that screen.

This is my second purchase of the womens down sweater. I bought one about 20 years ago and it lasted until this year when the zipper broke.

Very cozy and warm
I live in TX and this jacket is very cozy for winter walks and hikes. I wear Patagonia year round for outdoor activities including swimming and sundresses . Very comfortable and well designed, true to size. I wear size 4 in most clothing and a XS or Small. Thank you for making a durable, functional product.
Fits well. Wish there was a zippered pocket on the inside of both sides, if I keep items in the pocket it unevenly weighs down one side of the jacket. I like the new color but it makes the jacket look more bulky on me. I appreciate the ability to trade in my used jacket for a new one after a couple years. Definitely a pricey jacket though.
I spent many days researching and reading about a variety of brands and jacket types. I decided to go with the down sweater jacket based on a number of reviews and Best Down Jacket lists online. I already love how thin, but incredibly warm this jacket is! I wasnt able to try the exact jacket type out in a store because of availability, but tried on... Read More one similar and found my regular size, an xl to be too tight around the waist and hip area. I usually wear a size large T-shirt and a size 16 pant, so in my opinion this coat runs small because of the fit and style. The xxl fits me perfect.

It goes great with blacks, browns, and jeans. Im glad I finally invested in a high quality coat that can be worn daily! I highly recommend this coat, but think that those that have bigger waists and hips, should size up.

Hey there, thanks for the review. Feedback is important for our designers to see what's working and what's not, so we value you taking the time to let us know. It sounds like you purchased a lighter color Down Sweater, because lighter colors tend to be a bit more translucent. If you're interested in switching it out, you're welcome to do an [exchange](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) for a darker color.

For the price and function Patagonia should have a double zipper and more pockets. The fit is long in the arms. This is ok for me but I have very long arms.

Overall I'm really happy with this purchase and can't wait to take it on many outdoor adventures.
Great product, the only thing
Great product, the only thing I would note is that the vertical seams create a boxy shape, so if the jacket is baggy, and not closely fitting, it has a tendency to create a rectangular shape around the body. If it fits closely, then it forms to your body and looks better. Maybe over time the jacket would conform to your shape, even if worn baggy.

I'm a ski instructor and use this jacket for work, training, and my own personal use on and off the mountain. I absolutely LOVE it.

Sent it right back
When I tried this jacket on, I could't get the zipper ends to meet. Finally pulled it up and got it zipped. On the bottom, I looked like a sausage. The shoulders and bust, surprisingly, fit OK. As I stared at myself in the mirror, I realized that this jacket was cut to fit a man - wide in the shoulders, narrow in the hips. Who would design and... Read More cut a woman's garment that way?

Love the sweater but smelled kinda funky at first
It's very warm and light-weight! The only reason why I'm giving this a four star is because when I opened the package and wore the jacket for the first time, it smelled (for the lack of a better term) like a puppy...and not in a good way. For some reason, it had this weird funky smell where you get from a pet that hasn't been washe... Read Mored for a while? The smell was the worst near the arms. It was really unexpected but it went away after a day or two.
Hi Grace! Thank you for your feedback, and we're very sorry to hear about that bad odor! When down gets wet or damp, there is potential for it to smell a bit musky if not put in the dryer immediately. I am not sure if this is what happened in your case, but it is possible that some moisture accumulated while the item was in transit. I would recommend adding one cup of white vinegar the next time you put the jacket through the wash. If the jacket continues to smell after you wash it, you are welcome to initiate a return [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return).
tight in the hips and waist
I'm 5'4" and 120 pounds with narrow shoulders and slender build. I could zip up the down sweater and it looked okay in the shoulders and back. Unfortunately, the jacket was very tight around my hips and butt. I'm not curvy and I have a small butt. A XS was too big overall. The waist and hip proportions need to be adjusted.

stylish warm jacket
I don't know why this is called a "sweater" because it is not a knitted item. I bouht it to be a jacket, which is what I call it. It is warm enought with a fleece under it if the weather is at least 40 degrees F. Colder than this, I would need a warmer jacket. I l am very happy with it.
The light weight is deceptive given how warm this stylish jacket is when you put it on and go outside in the cold. Comfortable for temps in the 40s and 50s, and I put a light weight down vest on underneath when it’s down to the 30s. Don’t think I’d wear it at temps below that given that I get chilled easily. Well designed, well made, and is very fl... Read Moreattering.
This is my second down sweater I have purchased. My first one I wore out and it could not be repaired. I love this jacket. I wear it year around in California. It is great for travel. I got a small again. I am 5’5” & 135 lb. the new cut is slimmer than my old one. I am not sure how I Feel about that. The medium may be too big.
It's black, it's warmish, ummm ya that's about it. Would it kill you to use a two way zipper? And news flash, girls have butts.

Down sweater vs Thermoball
I ordered the W’s down sweater and the NF thermoball at the same time. I ended up keeping the down sweater and sending the thermoball back. The sweater is much warmer. I live in Utah and It is cold here! It keeps me warm but doesn’t make me get too hot. Great purchase! The thermoball was more flattering on me but it was also way thinner.
Just in time purchase
I purchased this item for an upcoming thanksgiving trip to Chicago but was called back to rural Illinois due due a family member’s health concern. (I live in Ventura, CA) While there, I was fortunate to experience a blizzard and subzero windchills while packing and moving my family to a new home. My sweater kept me warm and because it’s lightweight... Read More and not bulky, allowed me to climb in and out of the back of the pickup truck multiple times without constraining my movement. And it’s easy to stuff in a suitcase.
Nice and Cozy
This is the second down sweater I have purchased. My first one is being retired to a work-around-the-house jacket after getting sliced open by a hockey skate. Regardless - this jacket is warm enough for casual wear most days in the VT winter. I have also worn it as a mid-layer when skiing on cold days.
Sizing/fit not similar to previous Patagonia jackets
This LG does not fit correctly. The Sleeves are about 2" too long, The bust area fits but, just fits. The side quilting is not slimming. I guess I will just keep my old Patagonia.

Love my puffy
Love this jacket that I got in the pesto color from last season. This is without a doubt the best down jacket I have ever owned. My second winter with this jacket is coming up after heavy use, and I have yet to have a leaky spot or a tear.

Excited to test this!
My husband and I are going to Japan this winter and picked these as our main travel jackets. As we plan to layer our clothes, we think we will stay plenty warm for the outdoor activities planned. This jacket is lightweight and packs nicely for travel. The colors are vibrant and the fit is spot on for me, especially since I am short, only 5’. I orig...

This is my second down
This is my second down sweater, the first was a Mother’s Day gift from my kids many years ago. When the zipper on that one wouldn’t zip, the loca store fixed it. My daughter said if that wouldn’t have been possible, the store would have replaced the jacket. That zipper now has missing teeth, but I love the jacket, so the new one is my backup.
W down sweater camper green
I wanted the darker army green and this was lighter( I get that camper green is not army green but it had a greyer green), it also seems that the company wants only to fit " slim hipped" women. I used to wear a med nano-puff now even a large is shaped to fit someone slimmer. Sorry but the fit is not good!!
I had a down sweater that I wore day in and day out for years. In fact the fading wear and tear was so significant that it had to be replaced!

I love this sweater! It
I love this sweater! It feels great on, warm enough to wear with just a shirt, but can easily be layered when it's colder out. It's light weight and well made and I got it in the big sky blue and it's beautiful! I look forward to keeping this around for many years to come;)
I love Patagonia and, until now, everything I have bought has fit perfectly. But this down sweater has an odd shape. It’s super tight and long on the bottom which makes it ride up.

Great quality, bad fit
Love Patagonia as a company. Jacket is great quality but terrible fit. I bought the small which is bulky in shoulders and chest and tight at the hip. XS is too tight in my hip so I can’t size down.

I bought the jacket in Tasmanian Teal. Great color, fits well, warm. I originally bought a medium based on reviews to size up. I'm ideally a "small and a half" (5'7" 130lb 34D), but the medium was HUGE on me even when I layered a base layer and hoodie underneath. The sleeves swallowed me. I sized down to a small and it i...

Perfect for Central Coast Autumn and Winter!
I absolutely love this jacket! I go to school in SLO, California, and this jacket is absolutely perfect for autumn and winter days. I got the jacket in Craft Pink.

Everyday and everywhere
This jacket is so amazing. It keeps you warm every day. You never want to take it off because it’s so comfy. I wear it all the time. If it’s just a little chilly or if it’s really really cold it’ll keep you perfectly cozy. Worth every penny! I liked the packaging it came in, environmentally friendly.
This is my second. first one, probably 5 years old has held up very well, but is white, so i have to wash it a lot. it is a large, had to get XL for a similar fit. Very light and warm.
