Love it.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

I bought this in black, love the fit and feel. I already had the Patagonia Interlodge (which is an upgraded version of this with higher loft down, Gore-Tex, and watertight zippers) but I wanted it in black so I bought this, as it was the closest model I could find.
It is not a truly cold conditions coat, as suggested below. If you put this on and walk out the door into a subzero polar vortex- you'll be yanking on the cinch cords and wishing you had worn a thicker layer underneath.
It definitely runs large, at 6' 230lbs I usually wear a XXL but got this in XL and still have room to layer. Furthermore, if I wanted a more fitted look- I know that the large would've provided that without being uncomfortable.

Great!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Really light weight and super warm. Comfy at 11 below zero in Vermont. Very rain proof too. Love the insulated hood and lined pockets. And it looks good. Really great winter jacket for the price.

A truly cold conditions coat

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

I bought this as an around the town jacket but I can only take it out when it's 25 degrees or less and when I'll be outside more than transitioning from car to store to car, etc. This is one really warm jacket. It has some bulk to it that comes with the more substantial material (as opposed to a pure down jacket like the Down Sweater) used for the outer part of the jacket - so I bought a large (I generally fit XL in Patagonia). The pockets are soft fleece allowing you to skip the gloves if you want. The hood is very warm but has limited adjustability. In addition to the hand pockets, there's a shirt-type button pocket on the chest and across from that a zippered Napolean type pocket (great for stashing a phone). Only get this jacket for the really colds days. I don't think I could ski in this, it would be too warm. I'd rather just layer up a good technical shell.

I'm 5'5, weight about 155-160 lbs with 42" chest and 32" waist. Should I wear a small for this nice jacket? Thanks in advance for your input.

Light but heavy! Pricey but worth it!

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

Great jacket. I'm not a hardcore hiker... but I do travel to cold parts of the US with work (alaska, Montana, New York, New England, and live in Maryland) and this coat keeps me warm! I purchased the large and the sleeves are a taaaaaad bit long, but the chest and neck fit very nicely (I am a broad chested 5 foot 9 in male, 210 lbs.) I can comfortably wear the jacket with or without a hoodie underneath. The down is extremely warm, wearing the jacket with a hoodie will actually make you very hot even in 25 degree weather (tested and proven!) I would suggest this jacket to anyone needing a very comfortable and efficient cold weather coat. You really get what you pay for (400 bucks!) I have owned jackets that were equally as warm, but they were much bulkier.

A nice light jacket

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

I thought it would be a little heavier and warmer, with thicker down. It is actually a fairly light jacket. It seems pretty durable. It has nice fleece lined pockets and the hood is a good fit. Overall I enjoy this jacket for mild winter conditions, but it would not be sufficient for very cold temperatures.

Responded on

I disagree, it is light but I've not ever been cold in it!

Note on Sizing

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large

I am 5'8 and 155lbs - the small fits much better than the medium for me. The jacket itself looks great - I look forward to using it this winter in Chicago.

Well worth the bulk & $$

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got this jacket years ago when it first came out & we've been through snow storms and hurricanes. Only now is the DWR starting to show signs of wear around the cuffs and shoulders. The H2No technology is excellent; waterproof, breathable & does a great job of blocking the wind.

My only gripe is the slight bulkiness of the jacket. If you have a silm build you might want to size down. But for those with broad shoulders/torsos, your upper half is going to look ever slightly buffer because you'll probably have to go with your normal sizing for fear of it being too tight if you down-size. And if you're like me, who's vertically challenged (5'4) and broad shouldered, order the XS, look like michelin tire man and love the jacket =] because it's excellent at what it does.

Moral of the story: Make sure you try it on in-store not only to find the right sizing, but also to determine if you like the slight bulk this jacket has.

I know there have been size questions...

Posted on

I know there have been size questions before, but I'll go ahead and ask another. I'm 6'1 195lbs, should I go medium or large? I've had mixed results with Patagonia on sizing, sometimes a large fits like a trash bag, and other times it fits great even though the "cut" is the same. Would prefer the jacket to fit a little slimmer, so thinking medium? Anyone have any advice?

Responded on

If you're not layering, medium should work. I hesitate to say that, though, because you're right on the cusp. I'm 6'0 205, and a med is too tight across the shoulders.

What do the dark walnut and heritage green jackets look like? Thanks.

Responded on

No one seems to have any pictures of them not even the Patagonia web site, But if you look at the Patagonia Bivy product page it has the haritage green color and I would assume it is the same color for this jacket.

Responded on

images should be up soon, but for now Dark Walnut is a nice dark brown, and the best description I've heard for Heritage Green is actually a vinatge navy.

Just what I was looking for in a jacket

I needed to replace an old jacket and I stumbled upon this Wanaka jacket at a local store. It was on sale but I was bummed they only had a medium. I usually wear a large in most coats and sweaters. I think I even have a size large Patagonia fleece jacket. But when I tried it on it was perfect. I'm 6'0" 160 lbs. I have long arms and these are just fine. I can't imagine wearing a large in this jacket, but I didn't have one to compare to. I use on early morning boat rides where it is often 20 - 40 degrees F at the dock and with the wind chill of the open boat at 35 mph it can be a bit chilly. With the zip up neck and the wind flap and the shell material and the quilted down interior, it is nice and warm. I am stoked to have found this jacket and it looks like it is built to last a long time.

Wanaka - Great Jacket!

I'm currently on my 2nd Wanaka jacket. Because, this jacket runs pretty big. I'm 5'8" 210 and usually wear an XL in jackets and shirts. The XL was huge on me, I wore it for one season and loved it. But in the end I actually gave it to my 6'3" father in law! He is thrilled with it. I looked at a ton of options for a replacement and decided I wanted another Wanaka. I got a large this time and it's still a little bulky but I'm very happy with it. Perfect coat for Southeast Alaska winters!

Would this be a suitable ski jacket?

Would this be a suitable ski jacket?

Responded on

IMO this jacket is not suitable for a ski jacket. It is a very warm jacket but too bulky, I would look for something more geared toward skiing.

Responded on

Andy,
Definitely! It's fully waterproof, and super warm. If you're doing a lot of hiking or backcountry skiing, but for sitting on a charlift in chilly weather the Wanaka Down is a great option

Responded on

I agree with Mike, I love mine and am about to write a review but no to skiing, it's pretty bulky.

Responded on

I sent mine back with a good deal of feedback. It was never warm enough in mid coast maine. this is not what patagonia is known for

Great jacket

Wonderful jacket. Looks very cool. Got it in black to wear around town but I could definitely use it on the mountain also. This technology does breathe while maintaining it waterproofing ability. This is especially nice when going inside for a minute. I'm always hot anyways so I really can't stand jackets that don't breathe. The sizing is "normal," not too big, not too small. I'm 5'10" 235lbs and the XXL is fine for me. I pretty much wear XXL in everything. Bottom line is that with Patagonia, you know you're getting quality. Arms are just a tad long but I just tighten the button on the end of the sleeves and problem solved. It has down but I don't walk around looking like pillsbury doughboy because of too much down. I see myself using this for many years to come. Thanks backcountry....

Hi, I'm also 235lbs but 5' 6" . I tried XL it was a little big on me. What do you think I should do?

Hello, I'm going to be spending several months in Alaska and in temps around -15* F. Would this jacket be sufficient with layering? Also, what is the length of the jacket? I am looking for something that is approximately thigh length. I am 5'9" and 175 lbs. Thanks.

Best Answer Responded on

That all depends on how long you are going to be outside. If you are walking from your car to the store, it will do fine with a shirt and sweater. But, if you intend on spending hours at a time in the outdoors, you really want to go with something more technical. As for sizing, if you're torse is 40 inches or less, go with a medium, otherwise a large. The jacket will only reach about mid-hips though. It is casual street wear!

Color blindness

Black oak looks nothing like the picture. At all. Looks like grey or navy. Now I have to pay for return shipping. Stupid online shopping. Buyer beware.

Is this warmer than the 800 fill Fitz Roy or Down sweater?

Responded on

Warmer than the down sweater, colder than the Fitz Roy; but with better weather protection.
