Ms AlpLight Down Pullover

Kinda Small
April 29, 2023

Could use more pockets.

Could use more pockets. Otherwise, its terrific.

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!

Light weight but just right amount of warmth

These are great weight & warm. Easy to pull on & off, more so than I expected. After getting my first one in black, I ordered another in the wavy blue. My lady got one in the blue also. On sale was my incentive to try them!

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.

Perfect fit

Love this jacket so much I bought another in a different color. I have a small frame and this jacket fits me perfect. Its a slim fit for which is perfect for me frame size. Very warm, us it to go hiking and causal wear.

March 4, 2023

Just what I needed for winter golf or pickleball!!

Fits a little snug and very light weight, so not restrictive. Very warm and blocks wind better than expected. I do wish there was a small side pocket though.

March 3, 2023

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...

My partner loves his first Patagonia pull over.

This was purchased as a gift, my partner needed something warm for this cold we winter. He loves it.

February 27, 2023

Quality product

The jacket does feel a bit tight when putting it on, but thats just the design. Once on it feels very warm and cozy. Definitely can say it keeps you warm in cold weather.

February 25, 2023

Keep my house @ 50-55

Keep my house @ 50-55 degrees to save energy. This product with a t-shirt or micro d Pullover is great. Good outside with a shirt jac all winter. I live in Wyoming mountain foothills.

February 24, 2023

Ultra Light

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.

February 22, 2023

Super light weight, warm

Like the weight & warmth of this pullover. Really like the outside pocket on an item that can be used as mid layer or outer one. It's great place to keep the cell phone handy. Great price on sale always a plus.

February 19, 2023

Nice pullover but notice slim fit

Nice pullover over jacket. I normally wear a large but didnt realize this was a slim fit. Exchanged for an XL and it was fine

February 18, 2023

Awesome Pullover

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.

February 14, 2023

Good quality

I love this product. I just wish that it has hand warmer pockets.

February 10, 2023

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...

Super warm and light

Excellent warmth and light weight easy to pull on when walking the dog in cold mornings.

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]( team or visit your local Patagonia-owned retail store location if you need help to return it under our Ironclad Guarantee. Thanks Colin!

Good warm layer for dry days.

January 16, 2023


This is my 2nd Patagonia coat, true quality all around. My 1st coat lasted 12 years! and I wore it almost everyday. I will never buy anything else but Patagonia. Thank you

January 12, 2023

Very warm & light.

Very warm, light, and not bulky.

January 10, 2023

Very happy with product

Extremely light and very easy to carry when traveling.

December 30, 2022

love it overall the fit

love it overall the fit is very good with the texture and the quality the only issue with the jacket is the 3/4 zip wishing it was a zip up, but i still love it.

December 17, 2022

as always a great piece

as always a great piece of gear. long enough, plenty warm. maybe one improvement: if the pullcord on vertical pocket zipper just a bit less long, it would not get caught in the big collar zipper when closing to put top into storage.

December 12, 2022

Easy warm layer

wanted something to throw on quick under a hard shell for early morning dog walks, mid layer for skiing and ice fishing and this nails it. The right amount of warmth that is not bulky or heavy. Love it.

December 3, 2022

warm +light

6ft 168lbs, size medium. Love the design, low weight and warm are the big selling points for me. Fits very well. Classic Patagonia fit, pairs well with the tech fleece r2/r1.

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](

Almost perfect

I love this pullover but I wish it had a hood. Its a great static layer for cold nights after backpacking. A hood would make it perfect.

September 24, 2022


I bought this on sale (50% off).Love the sweater.

September 23, 2022

Light and warm but..

Man I wish this pullover had a hood then it would be amazing poece for every day wear in PNW

September 20, 2022

Wonderful warm layer for under a shell!

Awesome pullover. Chest zip pocket nearly invisible when zipped. Only wish is that there were a pair of those beautiful zippers for hand pockets too. And I do love fleecie liners in pockets as well.

Love it. Super light weight.

Love it. Super light weight. Nice fit. Great colours !

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](

So Warm....

This is SO warm.... for such a small jacket. And it's made of recycled fishing nets.

Super Light and Very Warm

Just received the jacket and have been out all day wearing it for warmth on a day of drizzle and fog. Its perfect, and in the Boralis Green got many compliments. Excellent piece. Thanks Patagonia!
