Description

The stars are so pretty.... Why would you want to cut your walk short just because it's cold outside?

We tried to find something we didn't like about the Patagonia Women's Lidia Parka, but we couldn't find anything unimpressive about it. So we've given ourselves over to enthusiastic admiration. You can't blame us: the jacket's all-recycled polyester shell is water-resistant, and it encases enough fluffy Thermogreen synthetic insulation to warm you on the coldest mountain days. Shirred quilting and princess seaming maintain a pretty silhouette (no marshmallow figure!) and you can pop the collar up for extra warmth. A thigh-length cut means your entire core stays plenty warm on your longest evening walks around the ski town.

Great Coat

Bought my wife this last month. We live in Japan and the weather is unpredictable and you spend a lot of time in the elements. She has loved it! It has the right amount of "puff" the perfect amount of warmth, and is refined enough to not look like a ski jacket. As usual Patagonia produces some good gear!

Not my dream coat:(

This coat was not the dream coat I had hoped for and am returning it. The fabric is not holding up very well on the cuffs and It is looking quite dirty despite being washed. I have the Platinum color and it does not look like it does in the photo. It was actually matte gray. Thanks to Backcountry's wonderful return policy I am not out the cash for a coat I did not love. I just ordered a North Face Parka today and hope that will meet my needs.

How cold can the Lidia parka handle?

Kellie,
great question. I would say pretty darn cold. If you're dressed fairly warmly underneath with maybe a sweater and a long sleeve T you'd be comfortable into the teens or colder?

My favorite jacket

I love this jacket. It is light, warm, wind proof, stylish, animal-friendly. I am 5'6" and approx 125 lbs. The small fits with some closeness so you don't feel like a walking sleeping bag, without being too tight. I can wear a pretty nice sweater underneath without feeling too tight. However the jacket is warm enough I often don't even need to layer. It is very good in wind. It may not be the warmest parka on the planet but for a fantastic balance between warmth, style, and bulk this jacket has it. Love the tall collar. Plus, it's animal friendly/vegan. No ducks had to suffer for your comfort so feel extra good about that.

My only reservation is the zipper. The zipper is weird. Sometimes I have to mess with it. It is kind of a bummer, but not enough to rate it down a whole star. I'd still buy this jacket even if I knew about the issue.

I wanted to add that I've worn this jacket in temps in the mid-30s with horrible wind and it was warm. We'll see as the really brutal days of winter come around but I think with a sweater and boots I'll be fine even in the teens.

Write your question here...Is this warm enough for Michigan winters or should I get a down jacket?

Responded on

I personally would say that if you are looking for a jacket that will work below 10 degrees and even below zero I would not go with this jacket. A down jacket will definitely be warmer in this instance, or if you would want to stay really warm I would suggest going with a tri-climate jacket.

I see that the fit says "slim"... how slim are we talking? I am definitely hippy and need to know if a long coat like this will fit if I go up a size.
