Lightest is rightest.
The Women's Ultralight Down Jacket is the lightest down jacket Patagonia makes, and it's worthy of 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.

Light Weight and Beautiful Color, but...
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 16
Wow, I was so excited about actually owning a Pat down jacket. This is a beautiful well constructed jacket, but I had to return it because it is a little narrow in the beam for my figure. I am a very tall lady, and although the jacket has very good length, it isn't cut for a tall person so it just did not fit well enough for me. The Oceania color is so pretty and is much more so in "person" than how it looks on-line.
Favorite down jacket!
I have this in black, size XL. I think mine might be an older version because it doesn't stow in its chest pocket, but in a separate nylon bag it came with. Anyway, I have a couple heavy duty down coats - a Canada Goose and a Hunter - but unless it's insanely cold, I find myself reaching for this one every time. It's light, comfy, and with a fleece under and a shell over, I'm toasty even in the single digits. I don't feel weighed down like I do with big puffers. I find Patagonia sizing to be reliable and on point - I'm always an XL, and this jacket is no different.

My sister lives in the Bay area and wears this jacket all of the time. She says it keeps her very comfortable.
She and her husband went out whale watching and her husband was wearing a lot of layers and he was freezing. My sister had this and a shell and she was comfortable for the duration of the tour. This is coming from a girl who typically freezes under two duvets in an over heated room.
