What is the difference btwn the hi-loft...
What is the difference btwn the hi-loft and fitz roy? Thanks!
The Hi Loft Down Sweater is a mid weight puffy in between the ligther weight Down Sweater and the full heavy duty Fitz Roy.
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?
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.
Most likely you are going to be a Medium or a Large
like wayne said, it's tougher to recommend without measurements. I'm 6' 190 and can rock a medium but I personally think it's cut a bit short and not the best chest fit for me. being and inch shorter n a lot lighter, I would guess the medium is what you'd want.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Just what I wanted when replacing my older 900 fill Northface jacket. I love the hood and level of insulation (extremely warm), I prefer this jacket to the non-hi-loft version due to its warmth. I wear this on adventures, or simply around the city on cold nights. Once on, I feel like I am warming up within 30 seconds or less, can't beat that.
Nothing is more comfortable than putting this jacket and a pair of Patagonia piton leggings after a cold surf session. This jacket is all around awesome, from being a simple comfort item, to something I can roll up and toss in a bag to be ready for anything.
6'1 165 and ordered a large due to broad shoulders. Fits well, I like to layer up sometimes, so I wanted to save a bit of room.
I really don't understand what the difference...
I really don't understand what the difference is between this and the Patagonia Hooded down sweater... They seem like the same jacket with quite similar technical specs... Can anyone enlighten me as to the difference??
There is a couple of differences although they are very subtle. I'm not sure of the fill weight of the jackets, but the Hi-loft has more down. Another difference is that the baffles on this jacket are spaced out more, allowing for higher loft, hence the name. The Hi-loft down sweater is slightly warmer. Hope this helps.
So warm. Great hood.

I've had a few puffy jackets. Before this it was the Mammut w/o hood. The Patagonia Hi-Loft blows everything I've had out of the water. The extra down is considerably warmer with out much added bulk. The hood has enough height to not pull on your head when you move around. Pockets also have zippers which is a bonus over the Mammut.
- I wish it had a self-packable pocket. The jacket comes with a small stuff sack, but I don't want to cary that with me all the time. Many other jackets will pack into one of their own pockets.
Sizing:- I'm 6' and 153lbs. I wear a small, it fits snug but isn't restrictive. I have long arms and the sleeves are long enough, which is great for that size.
Overall: winner winner chicken dinner.
Small fits like it's tailored to me.

- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Hi, I am 6 ft 140 lbs, I have a 36" chest, 29-30" waist, 29" from middle of chest to extended wrist (or, 24" from peak of shoulder to wrist.) I bought a size small. If the jacket were an inch shorter in any dimension, it would be too small, but as it is, this looks tailored to me and fits my needs well. I have enough room for layers under this jacket, without it becoming constricting, and suspect I could afford to weigh in at 150-160 in it, just fine. Covers over my belt when wearing lowrise pants, and doesn't make me look boxy or like a marshmallow. A nice little bonus, considering I bought it for function, not fahion... BTW, I tried the Patagonia Sweater / Hoodied Sweater in Small, both also fit great, with enough extra room for layering, but not excessive. The Patagonia Microlight Hoody, because it's a slim fit, was a bit short in the sleeves and torso. In all of these jackets, a Medium was much too roomy for me. In an XS, all of these jackets were too short, short in the sleeves, and felt fitted to my body a little close. If the size small draped down an inch or so in the back, would be perfect for bending, but can't complain, I'm typically right between sizes in everything.

I am 5 '10 and weight 195# with a muscular build. My waist is 34. Would you suggest a medium or a large?
at 195 I think you'll be happy with a large! Might be able to sneak into a medium if you want a more trim fit, but large would be the safe bet.
Large it is. Thank you.

Really like this jacket. It's so warm and comfortable. My upper body is muscular and I was worried about buy the medium, but it fits really well. I am 5'9", 80KGs
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought this for my boyfriend and he is pumped on it. He is 5'10"-ish and the medium fits perfectly. He typically wears a medium, so I would stick to your normal size. He says the cuffs could be a little tight if you have bigger wrists, but they are not an issue for him. It is a little looser fit than the down sweater, and a little more puffy, but still maintains a streamlined look and fit. The hickory is true to what you see in the images.
Can anyone compare the fit of this versus...
Can anyone compare the fit of this versus the fit of the Down Sweater Hoody? I'm going to be wearing this on its own most of the time as a everyday winter jacket at college (to and from class on windy days). I'm not looking for a super tight athletic fit, preferably something with a little more wiggle room but not boxy. Oh, and I'm 6'1 and 160lbs, size 32 waist. Thanks in advance!
It is roomier than the Down Sweater Hoody. It is maybe the difference between wearing a t shirt and wearing a midweight base layer in terms of volume. I'd size down only if you were on the lower end of whatever size you wear in the hoody. I am 5'10 30" waist and 155lbs and wear a small in the hoody and small in the Hi-loft as I tend to allow the Hi-loft to be a little loose when I don't layer up underneath it.
So I'm a bit confused on the difference...
So I'm a bit confused on the difference between this and the normal Patagonia down sweater. The specs both list 800 fill down and a very similar weight. I thought "hi-loft" implied more down (fill weight), which would make it warmer. Is this correct?
yes. it is definitely warmer than the regular down sweater. I believe it is approx 50% more down. Obviously a higher physical loft.. i.e puffier. The reg down sweater is less useful imo. Its a tad too in the middle for me. This is a much better jacket for multiple uses. I have both, and use both... General order for warmth in technical DOWN jackets( double down and wanaka aside) is like this for patagonia long sleeve items: Fitz roy, Hi-loft down sweater, down sweater, ultralight down jacket, ultralight down shirt. Fitz roy is MUCH warmer than the high loft. prob 2x warmer. The hi loft is a good bit warmer than the regular(50% more down so maybe 50% warmer). The reg is good to about 30 with a light shirt (cap 1) under it when not exerting oneself.(walkin around town) I am 5'10 approx 175 and a medium is great for a nice tech fit. I wear a large if I plan on using it as a belay jacket i.e. for use over several layers. good luck in your search. Get on pata's site and go to live chat.. or live chat here for specific down fill in grams or ounces.
thanks for the response man...good info
I've always wanted a jacket like the Fitz roy but it has zero practicality in North Carolina. I've had the down sweater once but it wasn't quite warm enough in the real cold. This may be the solution.
