Man's best friend.

When I feel at all chilled, this jacket is the first thing I reach for. It weighs less than a t-shirt and is warmer than a wool sweater. The shell fabric is very lightweight- making it prone to rips- but that's a reasonable trade off for the incredible warmth to weight ratio.

Cool Jacket,

I like this jacket. Its really warm and I like the cut of the jacket. It isn't super baggy like plenty of other jackets I have owned. The jacket is incredibly lightweight. I don't really care how much my gear weighs, but you will definitely notice how light this jacket is when you are wearing it. It almost feels like you don't have a jacket on at all, aside from the incredible warmth. The outer material is a little bit too light in my opinion, and I have experienced the occasional down sneaking its way out of the jacket. I'm not a huge fan of losing my feathers, but it hasn't got out of control yet. I have had the jacket for a year or so, and I am happy I have it.

Great Jacket

This down jacket is phenomenally light and warm. Medium fits a bit tighter than other mediums. Shinier than the pictures show. Includes a baggie for stuffing it.

Weird sizing, and shiny

If you're not a gram weenie, the non UL version by Patagonia is enough. I asked Patagonia and there is 98g of down in both versions (UL and normal). The only weight savings is in the shell. For me, I thought it would be cool to save a couple of ounces but to be honest, I never noticed anything. Plus, this thing isn't as attractive as the regular version if you're wearing it around town, but hey that's me. The jacket doesn't stuff into itself, it comes with a stuf sack that can be compressed down more, so it's still a bit big. The sizing was the deciding factor for me. It's a slim/athletic fit, which I normally like but for a down jacket like this, it wasn't really comfortable. The shell is also a bit shiny, almost like a black trash bag, though that's not a very pleasant analog. If you know what you want, and it fits your bill, then this jacket does a great job at what it was designed to do. But for the non-UL crowd, the regular down hoody is more than enough.

Awesome jacket

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Had this jacket for a year, absolutely put it through the wringer...held up super solid for the first 8 months, then started leaking feathers every now and then....make sure if you get it wet you thoroughly dry it...nevertheless it never returns to its original quality (in terms of down loft and warmth). That being said I use it climbing backpacking traveling and just everyday. I tore the sleeve after taking a big whipper, but honestly that fall probably would have torn a more durable material.
Now on to the pros....I wore this jacket almost every single day, used the stuff sack (which is brilliant btw) quite often. Traveling through airport and hiking, super solid and reliable. I've taken it climbing in Spain, England, France, Kentucky, and ca. Performed great, need to layer underneath a nice base layer and a solid fleece kept me warm around freezing temps with no wind.
Sizing
It is nearly impossible for me to find properly fitting clothes. I'm 6' 1" 165. I have really large shoulder, but almost no waist, and a +1 ape index. I took a medium in this jacket and it fits perfect wouldn't want to go any bigger or smaller.

Great Layer

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I use this jacket under my shell for skiing and it keeps me very warm. It is so light that I do not even notice I have it on. The hood is perfect, adding extra warmth while on a chairlift. This jacket packs down very small, which is great because it does not take up much space in my pack while out touring.

WOW

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

So good thing can come in small packages. This jacket balls up into a tiny stuff sack. Super portable! SUPER WARM! My only beef is the wrists are slightly small and its cut a little tight in the shoulders and back are, but I have not blown a seem yet. So LIGHT!

Patagonia Ultralight.

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my favorite jacket! It's super light weight. Like you'll be surprised. You can layer it underneath just about anything. The down is super high quality too as is the material. I've had this jacket for two years and haven't lost a feather.

Patagonia Ultralight Down Hooded Sweatsh

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Just picked this up the other week. It is super light weight. I haven't had a chance to put it to a full test yet but love how small it packs down. I am 6'3" 225lb and went with an XL. I thought it fit a little more form fitting compared to the Patagonia Down Sweater (has boxer fit). I would call it a perfect fit for my body type.

Lightweight Jacket

This is a great lightweight jacket that is super versatile and very warm. It can be worn alone thanks to the DWR coating or as a layering piece. It packs down very small and the hood is a huge plus. You will not be disappointed with this piece.

Everything you'd expect from Patagonia in terms of quality and construction. It's the unexpected elements of this jacket that make me love it... clipped the tidy little bundle to the back of my harness for what should have been a quick alpine jaunt. When we lost due to darkness and stream crossings, the UL Down Hoody saw me through a chilly night out sitting on the rope. Warm, light, and packable... no reason not to bring it next time.

Amazing!

I love this jacket! Packs small, barley notice it's there. The hood is almost my favorite part. It draws from two different places.

I used it in the high Unitas in Utah and it kept me warm with only one layer underneath long after the sun was down.

Im 5'8" 130 and the small works great for me. It could be 1-2 inches shorter, and maybe an inch less girth in the stomach area.

RUNS SMALL

This jacket and the ultralight shirt run one size smaller than usual. In all my other gear from Patagonia I am always XL but with this jacket I need XXL. I have to return the XL and unfortunately BC ran out of XXL in the color I want (on sale). The jacket otherwise looks great and packs stupid small.

Ok-ish

Got this but returning it for the down sweater. I'm 6'3" and 230lb. I have long arms and quite chunky build, but not fat, Im definitely an XL in the down sweater and it's a bit baggy on me. This ultralight is very nice, but cut slim - nice on the body but arms just heading to a little too short. Also the fabric is shiny. Also it didn't feel so warm when a strong breeze was blowing in cool weather. Probably best as a mid-layer.

I like it

It's unbelievably light and the material is so thin it's almost nonexistent. I got it in black and someone told me it looked like it was made out of a garbage sack; they were generally correct... a cheap thin garbage bag.

I picked it up as a midlayer and another insulated hood for really cold days. Works well and adds warmth. The fit is good, not too bulky, and i especially like the hood. full retail is probably too much for this.

Hi:

I'm 182cm 87kg,what size is good to me? M or L? I have down sweater M

Responded on

If you wear a Medium in the down sweater and like the fit I would go with the same size in this.

YIM,
I'd maybe go large here for you, the Ultralight Down Hoody is a bit more of a trim fit than the Down Sweater.
