How does this differ from the Patagonia Down Sweater Jacket?
I'm 6'4" 250 lbs with a 50" chest. Will an XL fit me? I usually buy XXL so a coat is somewhat roomy instead of snug. Also, is this the latest edition of the jacket? Thanks!
Is the hood insulated?
Positives-Good style, blocks wind well, hood has solid down lining, torso good too. Overall material is good.
Negatives-Too thin in the arms.
It's definitely not for harsh conditions unless you have a good layer underneath, but will serve you well in most cold temperatures. I just wore it home with just an oxford shirt on underneath in 25 degree windy weather and it held up pretty well. I wish it had more down in the arms, and the interior pocket was better, but overall it is a really good coat.
Really great material, very comfortable great water resistance-really saved me when I was caught in a rain storm, but if you're a hardcore climber or hiker this probably isn't for you since it doesn't cinch at the waist or wrists. Also feel the mesh pockets should be enclosed, but I really do love this coat for cruising around a cold, wintry city.
Thanks John. How long does it run? Mid-thigh?
I'm 6"3" 245 pounds. Will an XL be big and long enough for me? Also how is the fill in this coat, is it good throughout the coat?
Great material with a really cool design. I've had mine over two years and it has really held up with solid use. My slight gripe is it could have more down in the arms below the elbow, but it has just enough.
Overall it is a fantastic coat, long-reaches to the middle of my thigh-I'm 6'3" with a very warm hood, solid face guard-could have been lined on the inside but it is still effective. It's my go to coat when it is absolutely freezing out. Great value with that one minor quibble mentioned earlier. It's a fairly long coat so keep that in mind when you order. I think you'll be very satisfied. I love mine. Peace
I'd like to buy this if someone would answer my question.
What's the difference between this hat and the Canada Goose PBI hat?
Blocks wind and extremely warm in the coldest temperatures. A must for anyone who lives in the extreme cold.
I bought one last year and wasn't very happy with it. poor material and really didn't deliver
what it promised. Honestly felt like I got a dud, because I know Mountain Hardware makes good stuff. Is this one different from last years? thanks for your help.
