Pouch Pocket

Showing the lousy "elastic" band used for inside pouch pocket. Be aware that contents can/will spill out if either unzipped and you take a spill, or carrying. There is absolutely no retention whatsoever, to keep your belongings inside. And, there is only this one pouch pocket, and one tiny zip pocket.

The "Cold Shoulder"...

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

Been wanting to review this jacket for sometime now, and since it's really crummy weather-wise today (in fact, so cold out I had to wear this, and so was moved to write my experience with this item). I found that unless you are doing a very highly aerobic activity to create lots of heat, I'm am still cold when using for casual walks with a sweater & base layer underneath in just coolish' temps. Seems the fill from shoulder area always 'falls, or sinks downward, where there is just fabric and no fill on top of your shoulders; and I end up having to try to shake coat upside down to try to get fill back in place. Melted snow only slightly beaded up on outer shell (the North Face site listed this coat as "water resistant" only).

This coat was a gift, so I am grateful...but I wouldn't purchase it after having worn it this past winter.

My biggest gripe is the zipper...just trying to get it started is a big pain in the @#! the thing just is a pain to get it lined-up.

My friend got a Patagonia Primo Down and absolutely loves it. Totally warm; down stays in place; awesome hood; nice length (as the helicity is somewhat short on me). It has ALL the technical features you would want, plus it is WATERPROOF & Windproof. No fussy zipper, either. Who has time! So, after having some real time to wear this coat this past winter (and even this spring in our area!), I am somewhat disappointed; but grateful, since my old coat was beyond worn out! I'll use this for not-so-bad weather days...

Guess what coat I'm purchasing this coming winter season!

Patagonia Ladies' "Primo Down", of course!

no doubt

warm, comfy, and cozy!!!

suu-purrrr cute. and feminine fit.

i wear it in falling snow, icy winds, sleet, hiking in winter snowy time.

i usually wear base layers underneath when i am cold and haven't been doing much activity. (upon waking up or venturing around town) once i warm up and start hiking or anything like that i heat up like an oven and layers start coming off. you will love this coat. warm, stylish, and legit.


    I love this jacket, I have it in pink, I bought my mom the white one for Christmas, and I want to get another one in black. It's very soft, comfortable, and warm. Wind proof and waterproof. I've worn it skiing in Colorado and I was almost too warm. I was wearing a base layer and a down sweater mid layer as well. I'm 5'4" 120 lbs and I bought the medium. It runs a little small.

    I love it

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I love this coat! I've worn it skiing, sled riding, snowmobiling, or to work when its very cold and windy. I have no complaints. Its light, warm and windproof. If I'm participating in outdoor activities, I usually wear a baselayer, my North Face thunder jacket as a mid-layer and the helicity. I've never been cold and I have never felt a draft. I would say it runs a little small, keep in mind to size up with the layering. I'm 5'4" 120 lbs (petite but athletic). I typically wear a Small, but got a medium. A+
