Awesome coat. Very warm
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have owned a Canada Goose slim fit coat for the last 5 years that I have loved. Although it's still a great warm coat, it has started to show its age so i started looking for a new coat last winter. Didn't find one. And then this year I walked into Patagonia and found this great coat. It has some really wonderful features, like the double layers (making 3 coats out of one) and pockets that are located at waist level. The coat has so far satisfied my needs for warmth, but I've not seen temperatures drop below the 30s. My Canada Goose seemed to adjust its warmth capacity as temperatures dropped. Perhaps this coat will perform similarly, but i don't yet know. As for fit, I am 5'3"120lbs and the coat is slightly big on me, but not excessively so. Mostly, it's just that the sleeves are a tad too long. But when it's colder i can easily pull my hands inside the sleeves and the sleeve length then becomes a benefit. I bought the grey version and was worried it may show dirt, but so far the fabric has resisted getting or looking dirty.

i bought this jacket as a present to my girlfriend and she just love it, she has been wearing it in seattle and it's great for the rain and cold weather plus it's a very stylish jacket, we're very pleased with this purchase
Let me preface this review with saying that prior to purchasing this jacket, I didn't own any "nice looking" jackets that were in staid colors. I was the type of gal to show up all dressed up for dates or dinners or what have you with my brightly colored, hip-length outdoorsy jackets, fashion be damned!
Then I saw this jacket, and fell in love; then I tried on this jacket, and became obsessed. I told my mother about it - and she knows I have a serious jacket problem (they just follow me home)- and all my friends. I almost wrote love letters to this jacket I was so infatuated.
I bit the bullet and bought it a week or so later, and am pissed off that it hasn't been colder here in Boston this winter as I really, really could live in it 24/7. The cut is really slim (which is good, as I am usually too small to properly fit XS Patagonia outerwear), and the absence of a bold logo is absolutely fantastic: the only logo is a small "Patagonia" on the cuff of a sleeve in matching thread.
The little features of the jacket really make it worth the money: fleece lined inner-cuffs on the down layer, 2-ended main zipper, a hood big enough to take a ponytail, but not so large as to fit over a helmet, hidden picket on the inside left breast of the down layer...the list goes on and on.
In sum: Looks great, performs even better (damn this jacket is toasty), fits on the slim side (5'3", 32" bust - XS in Forge Gray). Color is slightly darker than in the photo. I am not planning on ever replacing this jacket.
I walk around campus all the time and needed a warm coat that would look nice. This coat does that and so much more. I'm 5'3" and it falls just before my knees- perfect for keeping wind out and covering the ends of dresses (no awkward ends peeking out!). It feels amazing on- the waist cinches in the tiniest bit so that you can actually feel like you're not a puffball (not like it's a problem in this coat, it is so feminine). The hood fits amazingly well (with room still for a hat, if you want). And the collar looks extremely chic. When the weather got up to 45-50º and rainy, I separated the coats and used the outer trench. It was very water and wind proof. The under coat's diamond stitching erases the puff effects and I love wearing it on its own too. For me, Patagonia did everything right. 3 different coats in one, and a cut that will be trendy forever. Definitely worth the price! Buy it and you will have three new best friends for fall, winter, and spring.
*I am 5'3" with a 34 bust and a size 8 waist and I bought a small in black.
Write your question here...Does the black have a Patagonia logo tag on the left chest pocket?? The other colors don't show a logo tag so it's weird that the picture of the black coat shows a logo tag. Anyone have insight on this??
I am wondering which size to order, as I do not have a patagonia store nearby to try it on. I am 5'4 and 125 lbs. I usually order an xs in patagonia gear, but do not want it to be too tight!! any suggestions??
oh, ps, i do not really plan to layer anything underneath. im stuck btwn ordering a small and x-small...
I tried this jacket on yesterday. I'm 5'2" and 108lbs. The XS fits me perfectly. It's a smaller fit than the other parkas. I can't fit their Downtown Loft Park in XS - too big on me. Hope this helps!
I have put this jacket through it's paces. Life in Holland requires protection from the winter wind, drizzle and cold. I walk & cycle almost every day. The coat has done a fine job against the rain and wind...but left me feeling a bit chilly in temps below 38F. Because the coat is slim fit...it doesn't allow for bulky sweater layering. The water/wind protection of the outer layer is great BUT the inner liner feels too thin. I can see thru the material and the down or feather insulation is not very thick...appears spotty especially along the seams where the sleeves attach to the coat. I've had better insulation from other 600 down fill jackets. I think they tried to keep the coat slim and lightweight but it really doesn't provide a true 600 fill warmth. The coat's outer layer sleeves are too long for it's petite cut...a bit mismatched proportionally. I don't typically have a problem with sleeves being too long...so I feel it's a design flaw. Probably meant to keep the liner dry during wet weather. It's annoying when I am shopping while wearing my coat as I have to tuck under the sleeves to use my hands. The up side is that while outside, the sleeves swallow my hands keeping them warmer. The pockets are shallow...I wish they had made the pockets a bit deeper. It would be nice for stashing my gloves, keys, phone, iPod or warming my hands. The collar of the outer layer is very high...which I like. Makes the hood fit well and allows for tucking my chin & mouth in for extra protection...and keeping the neck warm...when not using the hood. But, I think it could be annoying for some. The hood 'cinches' well, something I have had trouble with on other jackets...allowing for better visibility when turning your head.
Overall, I would give the jacket a 'Pretty cool' rating for being stylish, for it's great length and coverage, for it's wind and waterproof-ness. I would also give it an 'Adequate for the job' rating on it's temperature rating. Would be great if they would fix this on Version 2.0!
I bought this for my wife who is rather petite. The slim style was too snug for her. This is a very slim cut garment, especially considering it has a down liner, which "puffs" out. It is a great jacket, but I must return it. Beware of the slim style.
Pros: warm and stylish; you can wear it 3 ways. The down layer is very light.
Cons: not made for those who are under 5'2" and who are not slim; I tried a Small - length of coat is just right but the sleeves are long,almost covering my whole hands (at knuckles)and it is not feasible to shorten the sleeves to fit because there is a zipper on each sleeve opening. The outer layer is heavier than what I want and not very packable for travelling. The down jacket is slightly bigger than the outer layer and puffy, which makes the wearer look "fat" unless you zipped up to keep the down jacket compressed.Conclusion: If you are like me, 5'1" with not a slim, perfect figure, then this is not for you because the jacket is "fitted" and not very forgiving. Also, if you are looking for a light, and packable coat for travelling, this is not it.
Does that very high collar fold down when you don't need it?
Not really. I found that the collar is quite stiff and with the down layer, it looks bulky but looks alright if zipped up.
When it comes time, what is the best way to clean this parka?
Best way to wash down is to use a specific tech wash. I like this one to re-up my down is w this:
I went into patagonia to find a fleece but end up finding this jacket! I dont do any sports or anything but living in nyc, this jacket has become my best friend!
my office is often way too warm and anything more than a basic shirt gets too much. I can wear a short sleeve shirt or any basic shirts under this jacket and i am still kept very warm no matter how cold it gets outside. say goodbye to layering just to stay warm!
absolutly waterproof, windproof, and the lines of the jacket makes it look stylish as well!!!
It's a very warm and confortable coat.
I've never used the upper shell alone. But it is waterproof and "windproof". The only minus is that some feathergo out the inner part ...
I still like it very much.
Write your question here...
How is this jacket rated, warmth wise.
It is hard to tell if this is quilted and what does the back look like.
If i ordered this jacket how soon would I get it with the free shipping?
Babette, the Tres Parka is a very, very warm jacket! When you've got both jackets zipped together you could go out in some very cold temps and be fine, and the outer shell is fully waterproof so you'll be fine in nasty storms. The back of the down coat is quilted similar to the front.
