Description

Protective features, environmentally conscious.

Stow Patagonia's Down Sweater Full-Zip Hooded Men's Jacket inside its chest pocket on your backpacking trips. Just be sure to let it out regularly so its plush 800-fill Traceable Down insulation retains its soft loft over time. Patagonia's Traceable Down comes from non-live-plucked and non-force-fed geese; a fact that's been third-party-verified. To enhance its green status, Patagonia made the shell out of a recycled polyester ripstop that's light, windproof, and water-resistant thanks to the DWR finish.

Patagonia updated the Down Sweater with a more contoured fit that's longer for better coverage on cold camping trips. At a single pull, the hood cinches comfortably and securely around your head, and the hem and both cuffs help retain the down's wonderful warmth. Patagonia also added two zippered handwarmers and a zippered internal chest pocket that doubles as a stow pocket when it's time to head back home.

  • Recycled polyester shell
  • DWR finish
  • 800-fill Traceable Down insulation
  • Contoured fit with longer hem
  • Single-pull adjustable hood
  • Adjustable hem, elasticized cuffs
  • Two zippered handwarmer pockets
  • One zippered internal stow pocket at chest

Perfect for the John Muir Trail

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 11"
    Weight: 185 lbs
    Size Purchased: Medium

I went through a few weeks of research before finally making this purchase. I have been using the Nano Puff and Arc'teryx Atom LT for the last few years, but wanted a real down jacket for the John Muir Trail this summer. The main competitors were the MH Ghost Whisperer and the Patagonia Ultralight. I decided on the Down Sweater after trying all of them on, based on warmth, durable fabrics, and it's versatility. It is a little bit heavier than the other two, but the weight is due to more down being used in the jacket.

The Down Sweater packs into it's own pocket which is great when thru-hiking, as it minimizes the volume used in a pack and/or stuff sack. I got hit with a pretty cold storm on my way out of Yosemite Valley to the point where snow was sticking overnight at Tuolumne (This was in July). The cold spell continued over Donahue Pass and didn't break until a little after Thousand Island and Garnet Lakes. I was very happy to have this jacket on me, as it allowed me to sit out and watch the sunset over Banner Peak as an afternoon thunderstorm rolled through. I also got to hang out around camp late into the night at high elevation, which is something I haven't been able to do comfortable with my other jackets. The DWR finish did a good job of keeping the water from soaking through and bought me more than enough time to put my waterproof on.

The final test was a sunrise summit of Mt. Whitney to finish the JMT. The wind was blowing hard that morning and the temps we a little below freezing. I was nice and toasty with this jacket on, which allowed me to stay at the summit for quite a while before heading down.

The hood is deluxe. I buy all of my jackets with hoods as I feel it's worth the price to get the added head warmth. The sizing is the only slight knock on the Down Sweater. I'm almost always a size M in jackets. The Down Sweater fits perfectly on my shoulders and arms, but like most clothing these days, floats a little around my waist (I'm a 32 waist).

I can't really comment too much on durability as I've only used this for hiking and backpacking, which isn't really a true test of the fabric, seams, and stitching. Everything appears to be of the highest quality though, and I'm looking forward to logging many more miles, and spending many more nights outside in the Down Sweater.

Great All Around Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 10"
    Weight: 180 lbs
    Size Purchased: Medium

Great jacket for around town. Warm with a light layer underneath, fits true to size. Have a longer torso and it's long enough for me.

Love it love it love it

I finally decided that I wanted to replace my awesome and loved, but bulky, Sierra Designs Flex Down Jacket. I still like that jacket and it is super warm. The flex fit is great; but, I wanted something that was lighter for backpacking and slimmer fit so I wouldn't look like the Michelin Man.

I'm sure I looked at 10 - 15 lightweight down jackets. In the end I did not want the ultimate in thin; but, more of a balance between weight and warmth. My final two choices were this and the Black Diamond Cold Forge Hoody. I love the fit on both; but, I feel that this one packs a little tighter, fits a little easier and felt better overall.

With a piece like this, no one jacket will fit everyone and preference will vary drastically based on opinions. None the less, if you are looking for a solid balance between lightweight and warmth in a true down jacket with a great shell construction, this should make your short list.

My only complaint is that Patagonia makes jackets in some really great colors. This particular jacket only comes in two ...black and red (more of a bright orange). I would have loved it in Cilantro Green, Andes Blue etc. At least one or two other options would have been nice. As it stands you get to choose either dark as midnight or bright as high noon.

All in all, I am super pleased. feels warm like my larger puffier Flex Down; but, fits so much better. I don't miss the bulk.

A new season has arrived ...and apparently new additional color options. Nice work.

As M's Down Sweater Hoody ($279) and M's Ultralight Down Hoody ($349) are both 800-fill Down,

I would like to find out which model is warmer?

Best Answer Responded on

So the Down sweater is going to be warmer as it has more down.

You can call or email me directly. 801-736-6398, or bporreca@backcountry.com

(800 fill refers to the quality of the down, not the amount in the jacket)

Great Everyday Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 4"
    Weight: 180 lbs
    Size Purchased: Large

My husband wanted a warm hooded jacket to combat the cold winters of WI. I originally purchased Patagonia Ultralight Down Hoody, however it was not nearly as warm as this one. The hood is very well constructed and the jacket is very warm and protects from the wind. I purchased a Large and it is generally what he wears in coats. He is a short guy, but has very wide shoulders and sometimes has a hard time finding jackets that fit him in the shoulders without making him look like a giant. This one was great.

Awesome!!!

Had this coat for the last month and it is easily the best coat I have bought. Lightweight yet warm. Living in Chicago it can get very cold and windy in the winter and this coat has held up great so far. One note - Turkish Red is really orange. Returned it to get the black one.

Super warm

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 11"
    Weight: 175 lbs
    Size Purchased: Large

This is the first down jacket i've owned and after purchasing it, I will never go back. It's incredibly warm and comfortable on the skin, almost like little bunches of clouds sleeping on you.


It compression into a very small ball, about the size of a bag of chips if you fold it up right. So it's perfect for hikes, ect where you might want to take it off and stuff it in a small camel back or something.

It does get a little breezy if it's windy out. Not crazy bad but if I were to go to the beach I would say bring a windbreaker to put over it and you will more than warm.

Hey KB,

Based on your dimensions, I'd go with a size Large. Let me know if you have any other questions or would like to set up an order.

Can not go wrong with this jacket

perfect jacket for my hubby. bought him a black one a few years back and the Zipper failed. so ordered a new one. looks like they have upgraded the zipper.

Nice jacket, but the fit changed

Great jacket, but ended up returning mine the day I received it because the fit on these changed. It fits very baggy, and that's not what I expected because I owned the same jacket from the previous year. I highly recommend trying it on at a local store before ordering it...I had to return it and had to swallow the return fee.

Put on in October, take off in April

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This jacket is what I live in all winter. I really prefer the hooded model vs. the non-hooded. Great for 45 degrees and below, with options to layer underneath or above for lower temps. I wish it was a bit more form fitting, but that's my only complaint. I'm 6'3" 195 lbs and went with the large. The hood is great if you forget your hat and this jacket seems like it will last for a very long time. Great feature is how small it compresses if you travel and need to stash it in your carry on.

I'm wanting to upgrade from the original no-hood Patagonia Down Sweater to this item. I really would like a hooded-down jacket. How's the hood on this jacket compared to others in the market?

Best Answer Responded on

This hood is by far the best designed I've seen and tried on, which is many. I absolutely love this jacket and live in it through the winter.

Best Down Jacket!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I love this jacket! It's very warm and comfortable, and it fits great. I love the Patagonia brand and this is a must-have classic down jacket.

What is the center back length of a large?

Summit Sanctuary

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I pack this jacket up and put in my pack any day up in the mountains, winter or otherwise. It's lightweight, but retains heat extremely well. It's the perfect summit coat. It packs to about the size of two oranges, and easily fits in any pack.

The Down Sweater is also great around town, as it can be your only layer. It repels water and snow and blocks wind completely.

I've used this jacket steady for a couple years, and have yet to be dissatisfied with it at all. Top notch down.

buy it

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

This jacket is money. Super comfortable, functional, and looks good (I think). Patagonia always comes with it, one of the best brands out there making the best products. I've worn this on the river, hiking, and use it daily when it's cool outside. Can't ask for anything more. I love it.
