Mountain essentials.

Visit any mountain town and you'll see a disproportionate number of Patagonia Men's Ultralight Down Hoody cruising around, and this isn't just because they look nice. The Ultralight only weighs about as much as a single cup of water and the 800-fill goose down provides an incredible amount of warmth for the low weight. A Deluge DWR finish on the shell fabric keeps you dry when the white stuff starts to fall, and the adjustable hood gives you additional protection from chilly wind gusts.

  • 10D Nylon ripstop shell is exceptionally lightweight, durable, and is has a Deluge DWR finish for water resistance
  • 800-fill European goose down provides an unrivaled warmth to weight ratio
  • Variegated channel construction stabilizes the down insulation and provides a sleek low-profile look
  • Slim fit allows you to wear the hoodie on its own or layer it beneath outerwear
  • Elastic cuffs and a drawcord hem keep weather out and warmth in
  • Two front pockets warm up cold hands a chest pocket securely stows valuables
  • Self-fabric stuff sack allows for compact packing

Here's what others have to say...

As M's Down Sweater Hoody ($279) and M's Ultralight Down Hoody ($349) are both 800-fill Down,

I would like to find out which model is warmer?

Responded on

800 fill refers to the quality of the down. The Dwon Sweater has more down, and is warmer than the Ultralight here.

Great coat

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 6' 2"
    Weight: 180 lbs
    Size Purchased: Large

Ive used this coat many times when hiking, cross country skiing, climbing or just around town, and it has never failed to keep me warm. when skiing or hiking I love being able to pack it up and throw it in a backpack to put it on when i get to where I'm going. It packs extremely small but is very warm. It also does a pretty dang good job at blocking wind! I have also rock climbed in this coat, which was a little scary because of the type of rock i climb on (very crystally granite) and it has yet to tear, or shed feathers! It's very handy to be able to quickly pack it up, clip it to your harness and put it back on once you reach a belay ledge! That way you stay nice and toasty warm and are ready for the next pitch! Im very happy with this jacket, and its durability! I also have found that it is significantly warmer than the Nano Air. I was told they would be very similar, but i find this to be much warmer. So if you need a good all around down jacket, this is an awesome choice!

My favorite jacket.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 6' 2"
    Weight: 245 lbs
    Size Purchased: XL

I'm 6'2" - 245lbs. Broad shoulders, I wear a 46L in suit size. Originally bought a Patagonia Ultralight down hoody in XXL after reading that it was a slim fit jacket, way way too big. I was swimming in the jacket. I returned for a XL and am super happy with the jacket now. I did notice that the XXL is a regular fit, and XL is a slim fit as described. The XXL Ultralight down hoody jacket also had a different finish, outer material...not the shiny black, it looked like a matte black whereas the XL jacket outer finish is shiny...exactly as shown in the website picture and descriptions.
Anyways, this is my all time favorite jacket nowadays. I wear it as a outer jacket in temps up to 20*F, below that I layer it under my hardshell...doesn't get any better than that. UL Down Hoody is worth every penny for its warmth and its looks great!!

Unanswered Question

I'm 5'10 177lb, 41" chest and 33" waist. The down sweater hoody in medium fits well for me. I don't have a place around me to try on the ultralight hoody but did find a place to try on the ultralight non hooded version and the medium was tight in the arms and shoulders, the large was good in the arms and shoulders but a little loose on the waist area. Does the Ultralight hooded version have the same fit as the non hooded? Would you suggest I go with a Large? I really don't think I can move well in the medium.

Is this a windproof jacket? They talk about warmth, but want to ensure wind wont be a big issue

Responded on

It won't be a big issue. The fabric isn't specifically windproof, so in strong winds it'll leak through, but the construction of the jacket and the fabric itself will keep most breezes out.

176cm, 68kg, which size should I choose, S or M?

I want to wear one baselayer and one sweater inside and one hard shell outside.

live in it

This is one of the sweetest jacket Patagonia makes and is a 5 star product for sure. It's one of the lightest down jackets on the market, and is incredibly comfortable. The nylon fabric is more durable than the poly from the regular Down Sweater, and it seems to break in and get more comfy the more you wear it. It's great all fall and winter long, and is lightweight enough to wear on summer camping trips. Looking forward to the weather cooling off already so I can wear it again every day.

Killer. Warm, light, multi-purpose hoody

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

This is my 2nd of these. I bought this one to replace a faulty Arc'teryx Cerium LT Hooded Down Jacket.
I've really punished my first in Patagonian, Scottish & Norwegian winters and its still going strong into its 2nd year.
Warm on its own, under a shell, even better. Stuffs into its own small sack.
Great for travelling light into cold climates.

Never leave home without it

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

This is one piece i have with with me any day i am in the mountains. It is so light and small that it is hardly noticeable in your pack, however whenever a little extra warmth is needed perhaps on a ridge or when stoping for lunch the added warmth is invaluable. This jacket is quickly becoming my favorite piece of clothing i own.

finally found

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

thin & athletic build
true to size...this is an athletic cut for athletic builds
tried the down sweater (M)...too big, too boxy. To fit into this you have to be 5'10" 200lbs.

went to the UL down sweater and was pleased. the sleeves and body length are just right (any shorter and it would be a return). I would like another half inch on the body length to really dispel any worries about a cold draft up the back when I bend over.

Also bought the arcteryx cerium LT hooded down jacket (M). this was a little shorter in the body than the patagonia UL and the hood was quite a bit bulkier. I felt like it would be good for climbing (which i have no experience), the body length seemed perfect for someone wearing a short for me though, so i returned it.

Though the cerium LT has more down (900 vs. 850) than patagonia UL...i did not notice any difference in warmth.

Great looking and fitting coat

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

I am 5'10 185 lbs. 42 -chest; 33 -arms; 34 -waist; 16.5 -neck . I bought a Large. I can fit this over layers (shirts, sweatshirts, midweights), but it also fits under my shells (Arc Beta AR in M and Marmort Pro Tour in L). The Ultralight I found has a very trim fit so I do not think I would have been comfortable at all with the Medium.

I bought a MHW Ghost Whisperer and this at the same time as they were both on sale. Luckily I live in the country with no neighbors because I probably looked pretty goofy going out and doing walking laps in my yard alternating between the two to see which I liked better. My conclusion was that the Ghost Whisperer was better (warmer). The temps were about 0-5 F with a light wind and the hood with elastic stays tighter around your head and keeps you warmer. I also felt less air seep through the stitching. I think the Patagonia is better looking and the hood is better looking just as OutdoorGearLab stated. The Pat is the better coat for around town, but the Whisperer is more effective. The Viking blue is a great color as well.

I bought my father in law one as well with no hood for Christmas and he really liked it and kept it. He lives in AZ and hikes a lot. He didn't quite need the warmth I was looking for.

I am two inches taller and weight the same, how do you think the jacket length would work for me? don't want any cold drafts on my backside when I bend over....

If you are 6 feet tall you should definitely buy L size

Light weight and VERY warm

Hey Bobby! My mistake, ha I meant to stay stuff sack..

Probably my fave

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Excellent jacket. This fits much more trim that the normal down sweater, which suits my 6'1" 155 pound body very well. I went with a large, so I had a little room to layer, and that the arms would be long enough. It is super light and packs up very small. Surprisingly warm for its weight. It is in my backpack almost every time I hit the ski slopes. Light enough to take on backpacking trips for those surprise mountains freak storms. Sheds snow well, and wind doesn't cut through it easily. Excellent jacket!

slim fit means slim fit

My ultralight down hooded sweatshirt just arrived. I tried it on and barely got it to zip. Man when they say slim fit they mean it. I am 6 ft & weigh 230. Yes I have a tummy and could loose some weight. I ordered XL because that is what I have worn for several years. I am returning for XXL and hope that fits. Very nice piece of clothing. Usual Patagonia quality. I do think the price is a little out of line for 9.3 oz of material & feathers.
