Patagonia Men's Stretch Thermal Hoody

True To Size
March 23, 2022

Best jacket ever

Patagonia calls this a stretch thermal hoodie, but it is actually as bad ass jacket. If I had to pick one jacket for all activities, this would be it. Fairly water resistant, pretty warm, breathes well, packs small, looks good in town and on the trail, minimal features, but everything you need is there. I use this as my go to mountain bike jacket,... Read More town jacket, and I ski in it too. The hood fits comfortably under a helmet. The micro fleece interior is comfortable, even when wet. I usually wear a medium t shirt, 135 lbs guy, but I wear a xs in this product, so Id advise you buy a smaller size than you think you want, if you want an athletic fit. I love it so much I bought 3 of them, just in case it gets discontinued .. Oh yeah, it is durable, washes well, and is nice and quiet.

We appreciate all your thoughtful and detailed feedback on fit, sizing, fabric and function! This jacket was designed as a roomy layer for before and after surf sessions, but we love that you've found so many other uses for it. Thanks for an excellent review, Eugene!

Great jacket for when off the water when sea kayaking/canoeing

Many of my sea kayaking peers have specific jackets in their kits to wear either before, after or when landing for a lunch/bathroom break. I've lived without such a garment for years. This jacket first showed up under Patagonia's surf specific clothing several years ago, but I not a board surfer, so I held off buying one. I'm 5'... Read More 9" and 145 pounds. The Medium will fit over my drysuit when off the water. I've also found it simply great for casual wear. The built-in hood is quite handy and so are the fleece lined pockets on cool/cold days. The outer shell is quite durable, stain-resistant and sheds water well, but I would not consider it a 'rain jacket'. I also picked-up the match pants from Worn Wear. I just do not wear them nearly as often. If the jacket lacks anything it one of those small, zippered slash pockets on the upper chest, which I have on many of my other jackets, but I'm sure this would add to the cost. Yes, I would buy it again. I wish I had picked it up sooner.

Size down!

After ordering 2 in L size ( I thought the first one was defective), I order a M and it fit perfectly! I usually wear L in tops , XL if its a slim fit, but for this particular piece, I sized down to a M and it worked! Overall excellent and unique hoody, has its own niche on the industry. More colors please

Really wanted to love this piece. Fit is very baggy (not a skinny guy) and the sleeves are ridiculously long and weird. I thought I got a defective one and got another one , same problems. Sleeves should be 1.5 shorter and cut should be less boxy

Goofy fit

Great material, had high hopes but the fit just didn't work for me. I'm not that thick about the middle.

The Perfect Everyday Jacket!

This guy has been my go-to jacket since I got it. It fits comfortably and has that stretch fabric that offers great mobility. Im about 250 and have some pretty wide shoulders and this jacket fits me perfect. Its easy to layer with and great for most So-Cal days. Nice work, Patagonia!

I'm smitten with the Stretch Thermal pants and this jacket. I reside and play in the PNW, it's chilly and rainy. This jacket is warm more than any other piece of Patagonia I own. It's cut very roomy, so it fit's over my work clothes for my pedal in. Sheds rain like a champion. The hood is solid, fits my bike helmet if need be. ... Read MoreI am wearing a medium - 42" chest, broad shoulders, 32-33" waist. The jacket is big and will accommodate layers, so if you want a trim fit, contemplate a size down.

AMAZING jacket, but bigger then most items in a large from Patagonia

I bought this jacket as my only jacket for traveling in Nepal in October-November, and as a great jacket to have in the rainy Seattle area. After receiving the jacket it can DEFINITELY easily serve those purposes perfectly. But in comparison this hoody is sized like a torrent shell, its massive and wouldnt fit as an under layer. It does an amazing ... Read Morejob with rain and it could easily replace my rain coat (a torrent shell), but thats just not why I got it. Over a nano puff you could handle just about any snowy conditions, but thats not why I got it either. I was hoping it would fit like the nano puff I have in a large, but its significantly longer, hitting my thighs. I would just exchange it for a medium but the sleeves are near perfection...just like my nano puff. As a long time Patagonia customer is just dont get the hoody, the material its made out of is AMAZING, but its a hoody sized to be a ski jacket. Havent decided on a return or giving the medium a try.

Great except...

So I love everything about this jacket. Look and feel are great. I wish it was a little warmer. The pockets have mesh so when its a little cold outside your hands dont get warm because of the mesh. Cold air gets in. Thats my only complaint.

Put it on wet no problem

I am 63 220 and in general wear large in nearly everything. For whatever reason this jacket runs rather large and I had to size down to medium (something Ive not had to do in a very long time). I am not sure if its just meant to wear larger but...the medium fits well. YMMV I recently went on what became unexpectedly a water soaked hike and changed... Read More into this jacket while soaking wet. It was great and the wet suit liner handled it with zero issues. It breathes well and has no issues wicking away the Seattle rain. One minor issue is the zipper head and its pull cord feel cheap and the pull itself sloppily attached. It isnt nicely threaded as on most Patagonia jackets and therefore doesnt offer that smooth action it might otherwise. Not a huge deal but noticeably less quality than what youd expect at the price.

Comfy & Warm

This has become my favorite piece of clothing for the PNW. Rainy hikes to surf, hanging out on the beach, wet bike commutes, and just overall hanging out in dreary weather is where this excels. Can't imagine not having it and has become my go to rain jacket or travel companion. Its the first article of clothing that travels with me.

Great Piece

Really great piece. I like it for technical and casual wear. Fabric is water-resistant and I use it as a daily rain jacket. Also, nice for some endurance sports. Probably best suited as a layer you can put on while you're rafting on a cold day. I'm 5'8 with broad shoulders and a little thick and it fits a little baggie. Which I like.... Read More

Glad I found this jacket

We have a winner here. I've have been looking at this jacket for a long time until I finally decided to get it. All I can say is WOW. Great quality and build. Keeps me warm after getting out of the water. It also looks great to wear it daily. Great addition to my admittedly obscene number of Patagonia jackets.

One of My Favorites

This hoody has been a great addition to my SE Alaskan wardrobe. It works great for days on the boat fishing, biking to work, or running errands. The DWR finish lives up to its reputation and keeps me dry from the light rain. This has one of my highest recommendations for a warm lightweight hoody. Well done Patagonia!

MS Stretch Thermal Hoody

The MS Stretch Thermal Hoody immediately became my goto top for Spring. It fulfilled everything I need as a day-to-day top, as well as, a technical piece for my long hikes. I use it for everything from walking my kids to school to heading down to the lake for a paddle. Although I don't wear the hood much - it's nice to know it's ther...
