Excellent top, but sizing runs small
product description says it is a slim fit. Yup. Perhaps a bit too slim? I have a bunch of other Patagonia tops in size Men's M and they all are perfect for me. But for this one, I probably should have sized up to an L. I can squeeze into it but it is definitely tight. OK as a under-layer I guess...
Skinny Fit Fail
I really thought this was going to be the answer to my fall, hiking needs, but the chest was snug, and the arms were comically tight.. My guess is if I had moved to the XL, the body wouldve been too large and the sleeves too long. I switched to Patagonia from TNF because they generally have a boxier fit, but not this one!
What a fantastic piece
This pullover doesn't get nearly the love it deserves. Large is about 8.5 oz, more fill than the down sweater and in my opinion does what it is designed for, provide static insulation during long periods when your pack is off of you. This is a bare bones piece, 1/2 zip, no pockets for hands and incredibly light and warm with room for a midi or... Read More as a midi itself. On closeout, this piece is a steal.
Similar to Nano Puff Pullover but lighter and a bit warmer
I have been wearing a Nano Puff Pullover for a while now and still like it, but thought I would give this a shot as well. I really like it. It is even lighter than the Nano Puff and warmer as well. I also like that it is a touch longer than the Nano Puff. I can't vouch for the toughness of the fabric just yet, but the warmth for weight is hard... Read More to beat. One note on colors: I looked into all three colors and the black and basin green are a bit shiny at the top which isn't my favorite. The blue isn't which I like. But I still decided to go with the black so it might resist stains. All in all, I am really excited with this purchase and am glad to have it in my collection.
Warm and lightvweight
I recently used this layered over a smart wool tee and smart wool long sleeve short and under a Gore-Tex(R) Pro shell during a back country snowboarding trip in BC. The daytime temps were -27C and sunny. This Anorak was quite warm and very light weight. It is a slimmer fit than other Patagonia jackets I have but this was perfect as a layering syste... Read Morem. The jacket as also great for hanging around the lodge in the mornings. I would definitely recomend.
Love this garment. Super light and well made. Has proper ease for pulling over the shoulders with stretching or breaking stitches. Tightens at waste to trap body heat. I like the high collar as I always wear my collars upright in winter months. Its truly a down sweater.
The AlpLight Down Pullover does a great job keeping me warm on hikes, and for casual wear. It is lightweight, and easily "smooshes" into a side pocket of my carry-on bag when traveling. The only suggestion I have would be to add a kangaroo-style zip pocket in the front.
Nice under layer
I bought this to wear over my wool long Johns. Its a little tight but Im 225lb a normally 215lb so it would fit perfect if I was under 220 Im guessing. When its 45-32 degree I only wear a UA cold gear long John, a 350 weight wool long John, then this pull over under my outer jacket. 32 & below I will add a down vest over this pullover am I stay... Read More pretty warm.
Great Midlayer if it Fits You Correctly
tl;dr - restrictive arms/shoulders. Buy and Try! To test this pullover out I went on a ski trip. I used it as a midlayer over a capilene air hooded baselayer or a r1 hoody. In terms of performance (maintaining heat, shedding moisture, managing sweat, etc) it did great and that's why I'm torn about the fit issues I had. When wearing thi... Read Mores in a more casual setting, the back shoulder area feels tight but its mainly fine. If you bend down it feels like the pullover is resisting your movement. When you put this pullover into an activity type setting (skiing in my case) the restrictiveness of the back shoulders really is not great. I'm quite bummed because the rest of the fit of the pullover is everything I was looking for: slim, minimal and light. For me this is most likely going to be a return but I highly recommend trying this pullover out and seeing if the fit in the shoulders works for you. You'll be very happy with it if that ends up working out.

We appreciate your feedback on this slim fit down pullover! You might prefer something from our slim fit Nano-Air series, as the fabric and synthetic insulation is stretchy and designed for movement. Please reach out to our [Customer Service](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) team or visit your local Patagonia-owned retail store location if you need help to return it under our Ironclad Guarantee. Thanks Colin!
If I have to buy a product, I like what Patagonia stands for in terms of reducing its environmental impact. I must confess though that I do not like the cut of Patagonia clothing. I prefer my clothing to be slim fitting, however the Arm holes from the body to the sleeves are often cut too high. They are tight. This product is no different. And furt... Read Morehermore there just needs to be a little stretch in this product and in the better sweater et Al. Its one thing to wear this as a casual shirt Around town but its but its entirely different to wear it as performance clothing. When we're in the back country we need things to be a little bit stretchy. The last thing we want to feel like is our clothing is holding our performance back.
Confounding design choices
Having neither a kangaroo pocket, as one would expect from a pullover anorak-style jacket, nor two side waist-level pockets, was a poor design choice that limits the functionality of the coat.

Hi Shane! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review on the pullover. We're really sorry to hear about the disappointment with the lack of pockets. We'll share this feedback with our design team. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Returned - didn't like after trying on; expensive
Both my husband and I bought two sizes of this half-zip crew to try. We liked the concept. But after we tried it on, we felt it was just OK and definitely not worth the price. We didn't care for the style once we had it on. We felt it would be better to just use a full-front zip puffer down to make it easier to layer on/off when hiking, etc. W...

Hey Lynne, thanks for the review. We appreciate the feedback on our Alplight Down Pullover. The main objective with the Alpine Downlab pieces is to have gear that is extremely lightweight and versatile. This piece in particular is great for someone looking to eliminate extra bulk when layering but still remain warm; it works great for high output activities such as belaying, or for when you need to pack small on a backpacking trip. We're sorry to hear it didn't end up working out for you, you mentioned wishing it was a full-zip jacket. We do have a full-zip version you can check out [here](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-alplight-down-jacket/85545.html?dwvar_85545_color=FLBL).
