    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.

    Round 2 with this jacket

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

    This is one of my favorite puffy jackets. I've had an older version for 5 years and finally came around to ordering another color. It's a very durable jacket, super warm and extremely lightweight. With the newer model, the arms are slightly longer as well as the length of the body. I'll have to get the arms hemmed a little bit as I'm only 5'3 however, this did not turn me away from this jacket. Highly recommended!

    Fantastic Autumn to Winter Jacket

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

    SIZE REFERENCE:

    Height: 5' 4.75"
    Bust/Waist/Hips: 33", 25/26", 34.5"
    Weight: 105 lb.
    Dress/Pant Size: 0/25
    Bra: 32A/34AA/XS/S

    I have this in an XS.

    FIT: As this is part of Patagonia's alpine collection, this jacket will run a bit long so it can fit under a harness comfortably. Since I have pretty narrow hips, I have no issues there, though if it were made in an XXS I would definitely choose that since I wear this generally over a single baselayer and maybe a light fleece insulator, like an R1 or thermal-weight Capilene. However, the fit is comfortable for me.

    PERFORMANCE: I recently wore this on a several day trip to romp around some of my favorite parks, and the weather was chilly, damp, and generally dreary. It was a perfect companion all trip long--on a cold train, in the parks, hanging outside with my dog at night, etc. I run cold, and this performed very well all the way down to about 45 degrees F. Below that, I have to throw on an extra layer underneath (no big deal), or I would go up to the next jacket (e.g., Patagonia's Down Sweater Hoody). The thing I most appreciate about this jacket (besides traceable down) is how lightweight it is for how warm it is. I plan on this being my go-to jacket for many more trips (let alone errands around town, to and from climbing on chilly days, etc.). My one beef is always the single drawcord for the hem, but this is more of an aesthetic peeve.

    BOTTOM LINE: I hesitated about a year to get this jacket, and as soon as I put it on, I didn't want to take it off--I wore it as much as possible for a couple weeks straight (except for an anomalous 80-degree day) because I absolutely love its comfortable level of warmth. Like the Nano Air, I have been tending to keep this on and leave it on, and I cannot wait to see how it performs on bigger objectives.

    Fantastic Autumn to Winter Jacket

    Versatile

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

    I've worn it on 50 degree days and 15 degree nights. Kept me warm sleeping in my bag without a tent cause ours got shredded at the Grand Teton saddle. Easily packed into its pocket for the hike down. Fits fine with a base layer shirt and a long sleeve merino long sleeve underneath.

    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.

        Versatile, warm, perfect for on-the-go

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

        I think this jacket converted me to a Patagonia fan for life. It has become the ultimate staple in my wardrobe. As a layering piece or on its own, I take it with me just about everywhere.

        It i€™s super light, low profile, and stuffs into just about any bag. And I like that the design is a bit different and more modern than your typical down jacket. I have this in black, and it has a nice little sheen to it that I think makes it more fun. Added bonus, I'€™ve received more compliments on this jacket than anything else I own!

        This number has been with me three years now and it looks just as good today as it did the day bought it - and it has traveled with me errywhere. Seriously awesome. I'm still not sure how it's so durable, it seems like it would rip easily but doesn't. Compare this to a LuLu down jacket I've had for about the same amount of time that will tear if it catches anything.

        There is one tiny, tiny hole that I need to patch. Even with the tiniest of a tear, it does leak feathers, so when you buy the jacket I'd recommend snagging repair tape to keep on hand with you just in case, especially if you plan to wear it a lot on its own (instead of as a layering piece).

        If you plan to wear this more as a layer, I'd recommend going with the sans hood version. As with most jackets, I do wish it was just a tad bit longer.

        Versatile, warm, perfect for on-the-go

        Delicate, light and ultra-warm

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

        This little number and I have been through a lot. It kept me warm on a glacier, on chilly fall nights backpacking, and in a scary rescue scenario. I have repaired this jacket with dental floss, suture thread, and tenacious tape. And now I am on my second jacket! It's too delicate for a belay jacket unless you are very careful, but it is perfect for backpacking. The down does not leak from the jacket through the seams. I can layer under this jacket easily without having to size up. The DWR finish does wear out over time and I have not figured out a good way to replenish the finish. I am afraid that a spray on product might damage the loft of the down feathers.
        All in all, this jacket is perfect for backpacking and perhaps climbing if you are careful. It packs well and is of top quality. Don't lose the stuff sack!

        Delicate, light and ultra-warm

        Roomier than Nano Puffs

        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Small

        I own 1 Nano puff Hooded Insulated Jacket and 2 Nano Puff Pullovers in my usual size small (I'm 5'3 and fluctuate between 120-125 in weight). Worn them all to death.

        Love this jacket. It's warmer than the Nanos, and roomier in the sides and arms. With the Nanos the most I can get away with underneath is a Patagonia Cap 3 or 4, or a typical button down shirt if I'm kicking around town. I could fit anything from a wool sweater to a hoodie underneath this guy. Rad. That said, hoping this holds up as well as the Nanos.

        Puffy Perfection

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

        I have always been a huge fan of Patagonia products, and so it's no surprise that this jacket definitely did not disappoint. Not only is it one of the lightest jackets that I own (mere 8.9), but this down also kept me extremely well insulated. I've worn it for winter hiking, climbing days at the crag, and camping and backpacking trips. In extremely cold temps, I throw a hardshell over the top and it provides the perfect layering balance. It's so comfy that I even wear it around town just for the hell of it. The jacket is compact as well. On backpacking trips I'm able to stuff it in the included self-fabric stuffsack and throw it in with the rest of my gear. I am 5'3, 130 pounds with a shorter torso and the medium fit well and gave me plenty of room to layer. Overall, simply the best. I would highly recommend!

        Puffy Perfection

        Great jacket, but...

        • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

        The coral color of this jacket is gorgeous, BUT the black feathers inside the jacket show through to the outside and look like black grease spots all over the jacket! Even for $240, this is unacceptable. Not BackCountry's fault, but Patagonia should get their act together. Come on! Don't they look at the jacket before mass producing it? The jacket is still functional, just looks pretty bad.

        Light as a feather!

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

        Hard to take this off it feels so nice!

        Fits true for Patagonia.

        I am 5.7 118 lbs with a 34 A bust and long arms. XS is a perfect fit everywhere but the sleeves for me so I usually size up to a Small in Patagonia jackets, little more room everywhere else with a good length in the sleeves, leaving room to layer underneath if needed.
