From slopeside to city streets.

Whether you're strolling to brunch from your downtown loft or making your way to the designated après-ski watering hole, the Patagonia Women's Downtown Jacket keeps you warm without puffing you up. Sporty lines and a slim fit work whether you're in a small ski town or sashaying sassily down city streets. Down insulation can't be beat when it comes to heat without heft. When you want warmth that travels in many different circles, the Downtown Jacket has your number.

Durable polyester gets bathed in DWR so spitty drizzles and fierce flurries don't turn your feathery warm puffy into a frigid, soggy heap. The 600-fill Traceable Down lets you enjoy the warmth without guilt since every feather came from a duck who was neither force-fed nor live-plucked. Horizontal baffles prevent the feathers from finding common ground in a corner of this jacket. The shawl collar means you can stop donating scarves to various lost-and-founds, and the hood lets you hunker down when the winds kick up.

  • 100% polyester shell
  • DWR finish
  • 600-fill Traceable duck down insulation
  • Slim fit
  • Hood, shawl collar
  • 2 hand pockets

Here's what others have to say...


Form + function = great jacket

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

I bought this jacket for my fiancee but would like to share her impressions along with some of my own opinions. She already has a Patagonia Down Sweater (size XS) and is a big fan. It is one of her most used pieces in the fall, winter, and spring (we live in NY/CT, so there is a long season for puffy jackets). I suggested that she get a warmer puffy with a hood to use as an alternative to her winter parka. She first tried the Patagonia Ultralight Down Hoody (size S) but found the cut unflattering, slightly too big, and probably not as warm as desired.

Fast forward a few weeks, and we decided to do a side by side comparison of the Downtown Loft Down Jacket and the Hi-Loft Hooded Down Sweater. Here is my analysis of the key differences:

Downtown vs Hi-loft:
Runs small vs normal (S vs XS were about the same size)
Form fitting vs more boxy
More subtle branding vs standard Patagonia logo
Heavier vs lighter (due to beefier outer shell material, it seems)

That analysis is not meant to say that one jacket is better than the other but merely that they probably have different target users. The Downtown Jacket, as the name would suggest, is a better fit for folks who want a more stylish jacket for staying warm around town that will also work really well for staying warm on outdoor activities. I could very much see this jacket used as a ski jacket on dry days (or under a shell with wet snow). The Hi-Loft also seems like a great jacket but is more in line with Patagonia's traditional offering (and boxier cut).

The hood stows away into the shawl collar. After a first impression, this seems to be one of the best designed features of the jacket: the hood is large enough and seems to be quite warm, but when stowed away it helps turn the collar into a sturdy and warm shawl collar, which looks like it will really help keep in warmth and beat away wind without having to have the hood fully deployed.

Stay tuned for further impressions on this jacket.

Perfect match for New England

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

We moved back to New England not too long ago from living in the south for awhile. I knew the first winter back would be brutal, so I researched extensively for a jacket. The Downtown Loft Jacket was the perfect match!

I am tall, 5'10'' and it fits perfectly. There is plenty of length in the arms. The bottom of the jacket hits the upper thigh. It is very slimming and most of all is so warm!! I honestly can not remember a time that I wasn't warm in it.

I have washed it in cold water multiple times and put it in the dryer on low heat with a tennis ball to make it all fluffy again. It looks new each time.

The only down side is that it does not do well in wet snow/sleet. I would expect that for a down jacket though.

I highly recommend the Downtown Loft Jacket and am so glad I made the right choice!


Warm and Stylish

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

When I was looking for a coat, I thoroughly researched reviews, articles, brands, quality, etc. I was looking for a quality investment and something that would meet the following needs:

- Warmth

- Unpredictable Midwest weather (Iowa)

- Durability

- Outdoor playtime with my dogs and hikes

- Style

- I work in an office/professional environment

Based on my research, I kept getting pointed back to this particular coat, so I decided to take the plunge and make the purchase. I ordered an XS (I'm 5'2", 115 lbs) and it fits like a glove! The coat has a feminine cut, which was different from my old coat, so it felt a little snug on the first wear, but it was really just a matter of me getting used to the cut.

Now, keep in mind I've only owned this coat for a little over a week, but so far this has been a win across the board! I purchased this in black (goes with everything) and am able to wear mid-weight layers with ease -- dress shirts, blazers (albeit these make the coat a little more snug), thermals. I've received several compliments at the office and feel that it looks even better in person and is professional looking (in case I bump into some executives -- doesn't look disheveled and bulky like my old down coat was getting). When out playing with my dogs, the hide away hood and neck/face cover is amazing for windy mornings! The coat blocks wind well and gets warmer the longer you wear it, which also covered my warmth requirement.

Looking forward to seeing how well this coat does this winter!


Stylish & Cozy

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit:True to size

Great jacket. The fabric feels very smooth and the collar is super stylish! I got the purple colour and it's a very nice tone — almost pearly finish.

I am 5'4, 118lbs, size XS most times, but opted for the Small so I could fit a thick sweater under. I'm glad I got the Small because it's definitely a slim fit! There's no way I could fit a thick sweater if I had got the XS.

It's pretty warm, I wore it today in -3 celsius with a long sleeved tshirt under and I was warm.

What is the center back length of a medium?
