    The hood adds a gram or two.

    Apart from its hoodless counterpart, the Women's Ultralight Down Hooded Jacket is Patagonia's lightest down jacket for any alpine endeavor. Pertex Quantum provides half of the weight and twice the strength of most nylon shells, and it protects the lofty warmth inside with reliable water-resistance and complete windproofing. Patagonia's 800-fill down insulation comes from birds that were never force-fed or live-plucked, and it has a higher loft than most down jackets. The Ultralight Down Jacket stows inside its chest pocket for compact storage in your backpack.

    Best for backpacking

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

    I've now taken this jacket on two extended, multi-week trips in California's Sierras, and it will continue to be my insulating layer of choice on future trips. I love its weight and packability. It also goes in my day pack in a gallon-sized ziplock bag when I expect cold but dry or snowy conditions and just want extra insurance.

    After more than 50 days and nights in the backcountry, I washed the jacket and it looks like new again. So I can wear it to work, too!

    A few notes: this isn't intended to be a ski-weight winter jacket. It's an ultralight layer for those needing both weight savings and warmth in a three-season layer. I wore this as part of a layering system, with a mid-weight wool base and a rain/wind jacket to keep drafts out. I stayed comfortable most of the time and only moderately chilly (not dangerously cold) when temps dipped into the 20s. I had a down quilt I could have wrapped up in if it got any colder than that. Speaking of the quilt, this jacket was also part of my sleep system on cold nights, providing the hood that a quilt is missing.

    The word "system" is key for ultralight hikers. Everything needs to work together. No single component needs to (or should!) work entirely on its own.

    perfect for backpacking

      The jacket is light and easy to pack when I go backpacking. It also does a great job at keeping me warm. The small is a little snug, so I would suggest on possibly going up a size if you plan on layering.

      Fantastic Jacket

        Love this jacket. Its light-weight but ridiculously warm and breathes well. This is my go to jacket to throw on anytime I head out the door for the evening, going hiking or up into the mountains. My only beef is the medium is a bit more snug then I would like but the large is way to broad in the shoulders so I opted for the tighter fitting medium.

        Best lightweight jacket

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

        This jacket is so warm and so light. It has become my new favorite jacket. It folds up into nothing and is perfect for camping and rock climbing. It's nice that you can fit multiple layers underneath too. Definitely one of the best purchases I've made.

        Wife loves it - better than others

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

        My wife uses this constantly in cooler weather - everything from walking to work, after running, wearing at work, etc. More compressable than other jackets, she can pack it and take it anywhere. She loved it better than the others, including the regular Patagonia down jacket. It's no belay jacket for ice climbing, but it has met all of her winter needs.

        First Down

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

        I have a couple of primaloft jackets and love them. I've been wanting to try down cause everyone says its warmer. It was hard to resist the sale price and the vibrant purple color. I've used it a few times. So far, the plumage hasn't found its way out of the fabric, nor does it show through. The fit is perfect ...enough for a heavy base layer with a vest underneath. The hood is effective against cold winds. The only caveat is the upper arms could use a tad more room or stretch. I definitely feel it, but only at near full flex of my biceps. I am by no means a powerlifter, but my arms are on the muscular side. Aside from that, kept me warm in the 40's with a light base layer.

        Noisy & thin

        • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: medium

        It's hard to believe this is 800 fill. Doesn't seem that warm. Loved the color and fit true to size. Noisy fabric, like a plastic bag over you.
