Description

The one and only.

Alpine starts can be daunting, but when you’re breaking camp on summit day, you can always take a little bit of your warm sleeping bag with you if you have Patagonia’s ultralight Down Sweater Jacket in your pack. Layer a weatherproof shell over the Sweater when the snow rolls in, and then wear this jacket on its own when you’re back, safe and sound, in your hometown.

  • Ultralight, windproof and water-resistant polyester shell has high-tear strength and resists abrasion
  • DWR finish resists rain, grapple, snow, and coffee spills with equal gusto
  • Quilted construction keeps insulation firmly in place to help maintain warmth
  • Lock out even more cold and wind with the dual-adjust drawcord hem
  • Stuffs into its own zippered stretch-mesh pocket to help save space

Nice City Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

Would recommend for the backcountry not warm enough in the winter. But keeps you warm to and from in the city sometimes with a t-shirt only on. I was in the outdoors at 5000 feet with a shell and this and wasn't real cold and wasn't real warm either. Very comfortable jacket and light. Will keep you warm well running around a ski town at night and very packable.

So great that I always own two of them

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've owned several of these down sweaters over the years, and I wear them so much as soon as the chill of autumn hits that I joke how every year I get the jacket surgically attached to my body where it stays until early summer. It's no joke. This jacket is comfortable, surprisingly durable for such light fabric, and so lightweight it's amazing it can be so warm. It compresses down to nothing in my pack. Everyone should have one of these. They're extremely functional here in Utah. Make sure you try on before you buy -- the waistline on Patagonia seems to be built for thin people. I'm 5'8" and 160 lbs and fit in a small. I can't speak about the newly designed version of this jacket.

A quiver of one down jacket

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

This is the only jacket you will need for everyday pursuits around town or beyond city limits. Great 800 fill down and it packs into its own pocket. There's no excuse not to have this jacket in the bottom of your pack at all times. I'm 6'1" 165 lbs and the medium fits great. It should be noted that as of Fall 2014 Patagonia changed the fit on these jackets. They are not more athletically cut.

Essential gear

Light, compressable, and feels so warm when the temps drop. Used it in the Sierra Mountains and was happy I had it.

Great buy!

  • Fit: True to size

Size medium is a great fit for my husband who is short and a little heavy. i assume it will be on the short side if someone is tall. I purchased glass blue which is a low toned color for a middle aged man. Haven't a chance to wear it but I hope it is warm enough based on reviews.

are there any significant difference between...

are there any significant difference between 2012 and this years model?

Best Answer Responded on

I would say no significant difference between the 2012 model and this model. I own the Fall 2012 model of this jacket, and I've tried on and tested this model and I think the fit, design, and quality are the same. This is a classic from Patagonia, and I would really recommend at least trying on and getting a feel for the jacket. In my experience, this jacket can be a bit boxy in your normal sizing. Also, owning both the Patagonia down sweater jacket and the Patagonia down sweater jacket hoody, I find that I'm reaching for the hooded version of this jacket more than the un-hooded.

How does this compare to Marmot Zeus Down...

How does this compare to Marmot Zeus Down Jacket? Which between this and Zeus would you guys recommend?

Best Answer Responded on

JP,

Both the Marmot Zeus and Patagonia Down Sweater are both in the same class. Me, being a Marmot product lover would even take up with the Patagonia side as many of my friends wear them, love em and let me use em. The warmth I would say is an equal match, along with sizing running the same and both do have DWR coating. If you're looking for something a little warmer but in the same weight class you should check out the Backcountry.com Hadron Down Jacket http://www.backcountry.com/backcountry-backcountry-hadron-down-jacket-mens? another mid-layer down jacket that I own and love which is filled with 850 down.

Happy trails!

Esta chaqueta es muy ligera y c�moda. si bien no es una chaqueta para temperaturas tan bajas, es muy �til para la mayor�a de los d�as de invierno que tenemos en Mexico. La recomiendo ampliamente y estoy valorando comprar una mas en otro color.

SIZING

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

Decided to join the club. True to size, but for people like myself with longer torsos it tends to be a bit short so consider jumping up a size if you don't mind it being a little wider too.

Amazing Product!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

Purchased this jacket for my husband and I swear he hasn't taken it off since opening it up. VERY lightweight however holds in heat exceptionally well. Can fit into very small spaces (such as a purse or backpack) without getting wrinkled. He got the wax red and it is true to color, however, the medium fit him much better as opposed to his usual size large.

Extremely pleased with this jacket

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

Jacket is great for cooler days or even a light rain. I wear it all the time in casual environments as well as when I'm going out to dinner and such. The quality is great and I am never dissappointed with Patagonia products.

size review

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

Nice down and comfortable too. If someone out there is a little perplexed on sizing here is what worked for me. I'm 6'2'' and 187 lb. I first tried a on a large, but the fit was way to big baggy for my liking, especially if you're planning on using this down as a mid- layering piece every once in awhile. So the medium was the winner when it came to sizing, but it just fits! if it was an inch shorter in the sleeves I personally wouldn't be able to wear this brand.
Afterthought - the hoody version is the exact same in sizing, too.

Great Gift Idea

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I bought my Dad this jacket as a gift and he loves it! Goes great for shoveling the driveway, getting the newspaper, sipping coffee, and grumbling about the stock market being down. Classic Dad stuff. Or, if you're like mine, it's great for wearing under a ski shell and slaying on cold powder days. Whatever you feel, it's a classic.

Super toasty warm!

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

I bought this jacket for a recent trip out west. My plans were to travel light with minimal clothes/gear. This jacket stuffed into a pocket about the size of a softball and allowed me save space, but be warm.

Absolutely love this coat, in fact I am wearing right now as I type this. Bought it specify for working Super Bowl 48 in NYNJ. This with a base layer, a light fleece and my rain coat have been perfect together, been able to tolerate what ever weather has come at me.

I'm an awesome sister.

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

I got this for my big brother and he loves his. It was a bit of an adventure to get the right one, but WORTH IT. we purchased the Graphite Navy and it was more burgundy. The Black and forge grey were great. but the black won. The size was a little big and boxy. Expected with Patagonia. He always wears a extra large but fit better in a large, perfect, actually. He stays really warm without being hot. Cool with a t-shirt underneath in the Utah winter chill (20 degrees). It fits so well he's recommended it to peeps and might want another one.

Winter go-to

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

I have used this jacket from 45 degree days with a t-shirt to -45 degree windchill days at my main insulating piece, for its size and weight this jacket is king. There is a slightly boxy fit, i am 5'10" 165lbs and the medium fit relatively well, I have used several fleeces and an Arteryx gamma lt underneath it and various technical shells over it. the insulating factors are amazing but still relative to its size and weight, this jacket is extremely packable and is extremely light. i have reapplied DWR coating from grangers, and have found it does a decent job at shedding even heavier wet snow or slush. I did find that with time, the jacket did not lose to much down, but it did seem to lose some loft although i did not find that this impacted insulation abilities. I found myself layering this piece when hunting when i would stay stationary for up to seven hours in freezing weather. All in all i would say this is a superb down SWEATER, and crosses over into the realm of standalone jacket in certain conditions. While you may sacrifice absolute-toastiness that might be found in a belay parka, this jacket makes up for it with its weight, overall good looks, insulating factors (for its size) and the acceptable water repellency and wind resistance. Sadly after two full years of use a seam blew out which left two baffles wide open, and after losing a large amount of down to my college campus, i noticed the problem and retired this piece for now. I would not hesitate to buy another Patagonia down product for backcountry and in town use and i would recommend this to a friend. Think long and hard about a hood though, this may have been my only regret with the piece.
