Feels like you're wearing a layer of warm air.
At just under six ounces, the Patagonia Men's Ultralight Down Shirt is a serious insulation piece that is nearly imperceptible. 800-fill European goose down surrounds your body in a layer of warm air while the DWR treated shell fabric shrugs off light rains and falling snow. With such an advantageous warmth-to-weight ratio, there is no excuse to leave home without it.
- 10D nylon ripstop shell is exceptionally lightweight, durable, and is has a Deluge DWR finish for water-resistance
- 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

Whats the fill weight? Trying to decide...
Whats the fill weight? Trying to decide between this and the montbell EX-light.
56.5 grams to montbell 's 51 grams.
I had the Montbell and it was really a great piece at 5.6oz. I appreciated the extra lifting it allowed over Pata's tight baffles.
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.
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?
I would not go so far as to call it a garbage bag color but it is closer to that than a matte finish. So there will be some sheen but I don't find it to be garish.
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.
