Hoody, sweater, and jacket of your dreams.

The Patagonia Down Sweater Full-Zip Hoody Jacket. Seriously. Is it a hoody, a sweater, or a down jacket? Well … let’s just say that this 800-fill down torso-cover works as an ultralight insulating layer for frigid treks and as a windproof, water-resistant shell for mountaineering and alpine climbing trips.
  • 800-Fill goose down adds loads of warmth without a ton of bulk
  • Superlight, 100%-recycled polyester shell blocks wind and helps combat wetness
  • Elastic cuffs and drawcord hem corral heat
  • Insulated hood slides over your beanie to combat scalp goose-bumps
  • Internal stuff-sack pocket with carabiner clip-in loop for de-layering during a climb
  • Recyclable through Patagonia's Common Threads Program

Great Jacket, not worth the hood

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

Bought this for every day city use and perhaps some winter hiking if I ever get into it.

Really like the coats, but the hood is only worth it if you NEED a hood. Returned it and bout the Down Sweater without the hood and I love it!

Responded on

Can the hood be stowed (rolled into the neck) or is it always out?

Is a jacket like this as warm as something...

Is a jacket like this as warm as something like The Northface Aconcagua Down Jacket? TNF is much bulkier thus seems like it would be warmer.

Responded on

Not as warm as the TNF Aconcagua. A lot lighter, though, which is it's appeal. If you want a winter jacket, and weight isn't an issue, you'd be better off with the other.

Comfy and Warm.

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

Great jacket my new favorite to take fishing in these cold times . The arms are great and allow perfect mobility and the DWR treatment sheds the water perfect.

Not as durable as expected

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

After a year of usage all the down part of the vest was frayed. On the other side it is a good warm and light west, worth its value

Not as durable as expected

Another sizing question - L or XL? I'm...

Posted on

Another sizing question - L or XL? I'm 6' 3", 195, 36" waist, w/ long arms. Feel like I'm a 'tweener.... bet I'll need to try one on.
If anybody can help, I'd appreciate it.

Best Answer Responded on

petersouth,
Based on your measurements I would agree that you are on the border. I am 6'0" and 180lbs and take a L in the Patagonia Down Sweater. I would suggest the XL for you to ensure that the sleeves are long enough.

Responded on

I'm 6'3" and 195 lbs and I had to buy the XL for this jacket because the Patagonia fit for L is just not long enough in the arms when doing any reaching out motions for anything. WIth the L, I found myself having to pull the sleeves back down to my wrists way too often that I settled for a little more bulk in the torso to allow for more freedom for reach in the arms. If you are concerned about the arm length, go with the XL. Oh, and by the way, you just can't beat this jacket. It is amazing.

My favorite Jacket

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

I love this jacket. It is surprisingly thin and light, but still very warm. I use it as a mid-layer on ski patrol. I don't think I could go a day without it actually. I have fallen in love with this thing. It is really toasty on cold days, but the material cools really well also. So I can wear it on warm days too. The only problem I have with this jacket is the color. Graphite Navy is a fancy way to say purple. Patagonia always chooses the weirdest colors. I knew I would get hazed a little on patrol, but it's such a nice jacket that I couldn't go without it for the couple days it would take to return it.

My Favorite Down Jacket

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

I have many go-to jackets depending on the activity I am doing at the moment (running, skiing, climbing or just being casual). But when it's really cold out and I need to retain as much of my own body heat as possible, I reach for my Patagonia Hooded Down Sweater. I love, love, love this jacket. It's not something you'd wear when you are being super active, 'cause I think you'd sweat your you-know-whats off. That's how much warmth that European goose down retains. Throw it on when belaying, or when taking a break from skinning or throw it on when running out to get eggs at the supermarket.

Whether you get the hooded version or not is a personal question. Not everyone loves hoods. I do. When the wind picks up, I can just pull that thing up and it keeps me super warm.

It's probably too thick to wear as a mid-layer, although you could do it in a pinch (the Nano Puff is probably better as a mid-layer if it was really that cold). The hood has a very simple pull tab in the back that cinches down the face opening. Otherwise, it doesn't have all the types of adjustments you'd find on a technical shell type jacket.

It's got two well positioned hand pockets and a nice internal pocket made of stretchy material and zippered closed. The jacket can be smushed into the interior pocket for storage in your pack. It's got the typical smooth finish of a Patagonia down jacket.

Best travel jacket ever.

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

This jacket packs up super small and provides great warmth for it's size and weight. This is my go to jacket when I'm traveling light.

I can't find much difference between this...

Posted on

I can't find much difference between this jacket and the Patagonia Hi-Loft Hooded sweater. 800 down fill/approx.15.2 oz. Is there actually a difference? Maybe colors?

Responded on

Test,
The Patagonia Hi-Loft Down Sweater is indeed very similar to the Patagonia Down Sweater, and it is easiest to think of them as big brother and little brother. The general fit and look of the jackets are the same (slightly larger quilting pattern in the Hi-Loft) but the real difference is in the volume of down used in the jackets. Approx 1.2 extra ounces of 800 fill down are crammed into the Hi-Loft version to keep you even warmer than the already toasty Down Sweater. Overall weight difference between these two jackets is about 4 oz.

Responded on

To clarify, the Hooded Down Sweater has 118 grams of 800 fill down, whereas the HI-Loft has 153 grams of down. It has an ounce or so of more down.

NOT the 6ozs of down mentioned above.

Very Warm but downsize

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

The jacket is extremely warm and light but it is not a jacket to wear in the rain. Overall a good jacket for harsh wind and cold temps.

Good for anything worth doing

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

Bought this three years ago for a camping trip in the rockies and haven't looked back. Stuffs up to nothing, cosy as a blanket, and looks sharp. Has a bigger cut, so if you are looking for something slimmer go with the Ultralight Down Sweater that Patagonia sells.

fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large

Received that jacket and wore it around town for a few days in 30deg temps with a harsh wind. Stood up well to the wind and was relatively warm, but the fit is not great. I am 6'0" and 165. Medium is usually the size for me (although sometimes a little short). Jacket is great on the length in the body and arms; however the chest is blown out pretty big. It feels like the medium is made to fit someone that is 6'0" 200....or someone that is in need of a lot of layering.

Going to return and look for something that doesn't have so much heat zapping space inside.

Too big and boxy

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large



I'm 6'1 @ 165, narrow-waisted and broad shoulders. I first ordered a medium (I wear medium in everything else). The shoulders and arms fit perfectly, but the body was way too baggy and boxy. Returned it for a small and the body fit better but the arms were too short. Returned it. After trying on a few other brands and styles, I ended up with the Rab Microlight Alpine jacket in medium. The fit is perfect.

Responded on

having the same issue with this jacket. How did the length turn out on the torso and sleeves with the RAB? we have the same height and weight. Also thinking of the Patagonia UL down sweater in medium or the arcteryx cerium in medium.

Thanks!

Responded on

Brendan the Arc'teryx cerium is a true fit and it's the warmest light down I've ever worn! It's well worth the money. I had the same problem with this jacket and returned it and got the Arc'teryx. It's awesome.

would this be a good breathable mid layer?...

Posted on

would this be a good breathable mid layer?

Responded on

Hey Jtop836791,
I don't think this would be your best option for a breathable mid-layer. This uses down which is a great insulator but when it gets wet it becomes pretty useless. I would check out the Patagonia Nano Puff instead. It uses synthetic insulation which has a lower weight to warmth ratio than down but it breathes significantly better and performs better when wet. I hope this helps, let us know if you have any other questions!

Responded on

I don't think "puffy" jackets really make great breathable mid layers. for an active mid layer that will wick and breathe better, something like the Patagonia R1 or Ibex Shak would be a better option. this should be your mid layer on cold days where sweat build up wont be an issue.

Im 5'11" and I weigh 155 pounds. What size...

Im 5'11" and I weigh 155 pounds. What size would be best for me?

Responded on

I cant really make a good guess with the information provided. If we could get your chest measurement and your sleeve length we would be able to pinpoint your exact size. Also, we do have a size chart that you can compare your measurements against.

Best Answer Responded on

I'd say you should go with a small. I'm 5'11" and 140 pounds, and the small fits me with room to spare--a medium will be way too big on you. See Chris Purkey's review on here.
