This jacket is super warm and squishy - it's definitely comfortable and would certianly keep me warm in the snowy mountains of Utah. I do wish it was a little more tapered at the waist though! It's so warm and puffy that i would not need to wear any jackets or layers underneath (other than a basic long sleeve) so the jacket was just way too big. I'm normally a small/medium just depending on use and brand, but I would probably need an XS in this to actually have it fit snug around my waist but i'd be worried that my arm movement would be too restricted at that point.
Overall, i think this is another Patagonia parka where you just have to have a very specific body type, or no matter the size, it's just not going to work for you.
Jackson Glacier Parka video review
We live in the mountains of Utah and it can get COLD. Got this for my wife to have a longer down coat and man is it warm!! She wears it on those cold mornings taking the kids to school. Highly recommend. Good strong quality too.
