With such an advantageous warmth-to-weight ratio, there is no excuse to leave home without it.

  • 800-fill European goose down provides an unrivaled warmth to weight ratio
  • Quilt pattern controls the movement of the down for improved warmth
  • Slim fit allows you to wear the shirt on its own or layer it beneath outerwear
  • Elastic cuffs and a drawcord hem keep weather out and warmth in
  • Self-fabric stuff sack allows for compact packing

Great piece of kit, but...

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

It could be improved by sewing the stuff sack inside the zip to make a useable napoleon pocket. I would encourage Patagonia to also make the same without sleeves (pullover vest)

Oh I LOVE this thing

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

I have two Patagonia down sweaters, one full zip the other an anorak style. Both are wonderful. I was kinda skeptical that I could use (or really needed) another down pullover.



This thing is awesome. It's so light you hardly notice it's on your body. I wear it skiing, and it seems to keep its loft when its a touch wet. The collar zips up really well to help regulate body temp too.



No pockets or hoods or anything like that. It's basically a high tech version of your basic insulation layer, but when the wind was howling @ 20 mph and I'm on the lift buckled down, a wool layer, this shirt and a Patagonia shell keeps me comfy and warm.

Whats the fill weight? Trying to decide...

Whats the fill weight? Trying to decide between this and the montbell EX-light.

Does the black one look all iridescent...

Does the black one look all iridescent sort of like plastic or a garbage bag as the photo suggests?

Best Answer

Iridescent is a good way to describe it, although it will tone down with use and washings. The Patagonia down shirts/sweaters are great pieces of gear, but it will always be about the shiniest jacket you own. I would call the photo accurate. You might initially be a little shocked when you first receive it and see it in real life, but give it a chance and you'll be impressed.
