    Protective features, environmentally conscious.

    Stow Patagonia's Down Sweater Hooded Men's Jacket inside its chest pocket on your next backpacking trip, high-elevation climb, or midwinter ski trip—just be sure to let it out regularly so its plush 800-fill Traceable Down insulation retains its soft loft over time. Patagonia's Traceable Down comes from non-live-plucked and non-force-fed geese; a fact that's been third-party-verified. To enhance its green status, Patagonia made the shell out of a recycled polyester ripstop that's light, windproof, and water-resistant thanks to a DWR finish.

    Patagonia updated the Down Sweater with a more contoured fit that's longer for better coverage on cold camping trips. At a single pull, the hood cinches comfortably and securely around your head, and the hem and both cuffs help retain the down's wonderful warmth. Patagonia also added two zippered handwarmers and a zippered internal chest pocket that doubles as a stow pocket when it's time to head back home.

    • An insulating layer ideal for climbing, hiking, and skiing
    • 800-fill Traceable Down insulation is lightweight and compressible
    • Weather-shedding shell made from recycled polyester
    • Single-pull adjustable hood is quickly adjusted to combat wind
    • Adjustable hem and elasticized cuffs work to lock in heat
    • Jacket stows in interior chest pocket for easy packing
    • Contoured fit helps reduce bulk and longer hem increases coverage
    • Patagonia is dedicated to crafting sustainable outdoor gear

    Awesome down jacket!

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

    I've worn this jacket on it's own and under a shell and have been impressed all around so far! Breathable and still really warm.

    I was deciding between ordering a medium or a large, went with a medium and it fits perfectly.

    Good, but Not Great

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small

    Patagonia needs to make their jackets American size, not European. I wear an XL with every other jacket or shirt except Patagonia. This thing was too tight, and I'm not sure if Patagonia is simply trying to skimp on cost. But as expensive as their jackets are, this thing should fit perfectly.

    Also, while the jacket is warm for the size, can we update the shell a bit Patagonia? This thing rips at the drop of a dime. Don't even think of getting it near a fence or a flame. Let's update the jacket some, and get a shell that is firmer and one that doesn't melt if you're roasting marshmallows.

    Aside from that the jacket is warm and thin, making it very portable. It just greatly needs an update to address the issues mentioned.

    One of my favorites

    • Size Bought: large

    Not going to get into the debate about synthetic versus natural down. This thing is a hotbox! I tucked it up under a rainshell and was quite warm and toasty. I was surprised as to how thin it is, and yet how warm. Did a good job of keeping the wind out. I was only really able to wear it a couple of nights due to how warm it is.

    Favorite down I own!

      This is one of my favorite jackets. I find myself always wearing this over some of my other down jackets. It is lightweight and warm. The look of it is perfect. I own the navy color and it is a good neutral to have. I have noticed that Patagonia fits me best over TNF and other brands. Highly recommend!

      best down jacket out there

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I feel like I have a lot of jackets in my closet and this by far is number 1 on my list of jackets to wear. Very warm and just feels good. When you're wearing it doesn't feel bulky at all.

      Stylish but lacking durability

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size

      I bought this jacket as a gift for my boyfriend. Here's his review:
      "The jacket looks great and I love the color. The sizing is accurate and the hood is great. I'm not happy with the durability of the outer shell though. This is definitely not a mountain workhorse and will not tolerate rough use. Works perfectly as a winter jacket for city use. I would recommend pairing it with a shell on very cold/windy days though. I really wish Patagonia would give this jacket a more durable outer fabric."

      He ended up getting a tear pretty soon after opening this up, on a wooden fence. Easy enough to fix, and Patagonia has a sweet warranty, so it all worked out in the end.

      Erin, for the Down Sweater it's a delicate balance of lightweight and packable vs tough and durabilite. The Ultralight Down Sweater has a shell fabric that is half the weight and twice the strength of the strength of the regular Down Sweater if your boyfriend needs something burlier!

      Patagonia improved a great piece

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

      Replaced a 10 year old down sweater hoodie with a bum zipper and this one is better in almost every way. Better fit, better zippers, microfleece at the mouth. It's a classic.

      • Size Bought: Small

      I wear this thing everywhere! My goto piece of clothing. I should probably buy more of them as this one gets some serious use. Everything from ski resorts to Central America. The internal pocket/stuff sack is a great travel wallet holder.

      Only negative for myself is that I could probably use a warmer down jacket as I'm sometimes cold while wearing this in more social settings.

      Treat Yo Self!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Well, I love this thing. It gives me the warm fuzzies inside. Whenever I’m cold, I put this thing on and then I’m not cold anymore. It’s like magic. Putting the hood on and zipping the jacket up all the way is like a welcome-back-to-the-womb simulation. So warm.

      Sometimes when there is gnar to be shredded, I try to go shred it. If it’s cold on that day, I will bring this jacket and one of his waterproof friends as back up. They never let me down.

      One bummer is that this thing is not fire proof and will probably melt if it were to come into contact with something hot (e.g., freshly extinguished backpacking stove). Fortunately for us, it is easy to repair and then use in order to continue being warm. Also, if you don’t wash it, it starts to smell like adventure, but not like the good adventure smells.

      So, if you’re trying to stay warm, I think you should buy one.

      This jacket will change your life.

      I absolutely love my Patagonia Down Hoody. It is one of the most versatile pieces of clothing I have. I take this thing everywhere, literally. I was wearing it on Maui, and less than 3 weeks later, it was with me on the summit of the Grand Teton. I never leave home with out it. It is not only good for active wear, but is also a very great casual piece. Whether you are just out for the night, or going skiing and need some insulation, this is the jacket for you. I must note that it does run somewhat slim, because I am normally a Medium, but I had to get this in a Small.

      My Favorite Down!

      Everyone needs at least one great down jacket. I have about five that all fill different roles, but this one is my favorite. It fits very well; close to the body to retain warmth (and not look like I'm wearing a sleeping bag), but still allows full range of motion. Both the hood and the waist have nice cinch cords to trap your body heat, and there's some softer fabric around the neck/face to keep it comfortable. And it's warm! I'm a California native who recently moved to SLC, Utah, and this jacket is helping me survive the frigid temperatures here! My only complaint would be that lighter colors do seem to pick up and show a lot of dirtiness; I have it in orange and it looks pretty dirty around the wrists, elbows and front zipper. Other than that, this jacket is near perfect!

      What everyone else says and you'll know

      Absolutely fantastic coat. Nifty draw string adjustments, water repellant, extremely light and packable but warmer that larger coats I've owned in the past. have not had to layer coat with anything else this winter thus far.

      By far it's been the best winter coat I've ever owned.. I've only had it for about a month, so I'll see how it holds up of course, but I wear it all the time and from what I understand Patagonia carries a lifetime warranty on these babys, so there really is no reason for worry. Happy I got the hooded version. the hood is a work of art. I've gotten many compliments on the jacket and others are wanting one. I wish it was slightly longer and less wide, more of a slim fit, but you can make that work in so many ways. if you're on the fence don't be- jump off if you can afford it. you'll not regret it.

      Lightweight but Warm!

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size

      I bought this jacket for my boyfriend, and he loves this coat! The jacket is very lightweight, but don't be alarmed! It is super warm with an 800 fill down! This is great all around down jacket. My guy wears it around town, skiing, hiking, camping. This jacket does not come with a stuff sack, but packs down into the inner chest pocket! Great for traveling!

      Great jacket!

      I have been very happy with this jacket so far. it is extremely comfortable and compact. I bought it as a winter jacket and it does a good job, but not 100% of what i wanted it to do. I live in Wisconsin where we are at -10 to 20 often. This jacket is good until 25+ degrees.
      Sizing for me seemed very small. I expected to fit in a medium, but i switch for a large to be able to wear anything under neath the jacket.

      Hey, I'm 6'2" and 185 pounds. Wondering if the M or L would be more sufficient for me.

      I'm 5'10, 210 lbs, 36-inch waist, broad shoulders. I usually wear Large or XL in insulated jackets or shells, and I prefer a slightly loose fit (that can be cinched at the hem). What size do you recommend? thanx!

      I am 5' 10" and 220lbs, 46 chest but a little big around the midsection. Should I go with XL or XXL in this jacket? Based on the sizing chart it looks like the XL would fit the chest but I'm concerned it might be snug around the torso. Should this jacket fit snug or loose?

      I'm buying this for someone that is 6' about 175 lbs and I ordered a large in case they want to layer, is that alright or will they run into problems?

      6 ft 1in, 195 lbs. Should I get a large or xlarge?? want to be able to wear a sweater of sweatshirt underneath. Thanks !

      Is this jacket windproof?

      Unanswered Question

      Is this jacket sized to go over a couple other layers (Fleece and soft shell jacket) or do I need to size up to get it to fit?

      I'm 6ft tall and 165lbs. I wear a medium.

      I am 5'10"/185 with a 43" chest. By the sizing guide, it says I should order a large. Thoughts?

      My husband is 5'11, 180 lbs. He would typically wear a large but his arms are disproportionate and tend to be longer for his size. As such, he usually has to buy XL. We looked at the size chart and followed the instructions but if that were the case he would wear a small (measures at 32.5 inches). Clearly, we are doing something wrong. If you have any suggestions or recommend a size for him that would be great! Thank you.

      So I'm 6'1" and 170 pounds. Should I go with a medium or a large? I don't plan on layering much beneath the jacket.

      I'm 5'60 157lbs Chest100 what size should I get? Thanks

      I'm 5'10 170lbs what size should I get? Thanks

      Compared the the Hi-Loft version of this jacket (same price), what are the major differences between them, and which one is truly warmer?
      Also, how do these jackets handle against heavy wind/rain?


      Great question, the Hi-Loft version is using a 600 fill power down and the regular Down Sweater is utilizing an 800 fill power.

      So to get a lighter Down Sweater, Patagonia used a high quality down. It really comes down to what you'd like in the jacket? A high quality down and less of it or more insulation of a slightly lower grade? Both with insulate pretty much the same.

      In regards to wind/rain, I wouldn't expect much wind protection from any down jacket. Both jackets have a DWR coating to shed come light mist/rain.

      As M's Down Sweater Hoody ($279) and M's Ultralight Down Hoody ($349) are both 800-fill Down,

      I would like to find out which model is warmer?

      I am a 5'9 195 lb guy, what size should I buy?

      I'm wanting to upgrade from the original no-hood Patagonia Down Sweater to this item. I really would like a hooded-down jacket. How's the hood on this jacket compared to others in the market?
