Prairie Dawn Insulated Parka

Like so many prairie folk in those old cowboy movies, the Patagonia Prairie Dawn Insulated Parka has a tough exterior that's just covering up how soft it is on the inside. Inspired by Patagonia's rugged workwear collection, this fleece-lined parka is made with a durable cotton canvas that can block frigid winter winds.

  • A durable canvas parka with comfortable fleece insulation
  • Organic cotton canvas is thick enough to cut through cold winds
  • Synthetic insulation provides reliable warmth even when wet
  • High-pile shearling fleece offers soft-wearing and cozy warmth
  • Fleece-lined hood is adjustable for versatility and comfort
  • Drop-in handwarmer pockets hold valuables and chilly hands
  • Drop-tail hem falls below the knees for greater coverage
  • Item #PAT02J2

Mine had to be made wrong...

While this jacket was SO warm and comfortable, and the pockets are super roomy, which I love - it was huge. I am 5'4" ~112 lbs and I ordered an XS. All my Patagonia gear is XS and fits perfect. This was HUGE. I could have fit another jacket under it. However, the arms were SO short, you could see my wrists just standing with my arms at my side. I am convinced that mine had to be made wrong. I am returning. Very frustrated that I have to pay $7 to return when the specific order I received seems to be made wrong in comparison to my other patagonia jackets.

The sleeves are way too short while the rest of the coat was too baggy and seemed like it would just get saggier with wear . Not happy with the purchase. Having to pay $7 for returned shipping on a coat that cost almost $300 is kind of a disappointment too, should have looked into that before ordering from a company I knew nothing about. My bad there.. Shipping was fast though.

I bought the sage khaki and the color is beautiful! I used the sizing guide on Patagonia's website and landed on a size Small. It seems perfect! It fits well but still has enough room to layer another jacket underneath. I'm pretty short and the back of the parka reaches just above the back of my knee, which seems like a perfect length. I love it so much! Would definitely recommend.

My husband just bought me this coat in sage khaki as a gift and I LOVE it. However, he bought me a small and I felt it was a little baggy, just a lot of extra fabric in the waist/bottom. I tightened the waistband much as I could but it still just felt like too much coat for my frame. I then bought an XS so I could compare side by side and felt that the XS fit me best. Fits like the model. I’m 5’3”, 120lbs, size 2, 32D, athletic build. I carry most of my weight in my hips and thighs so I tend to be more petite up top. The XS still has plenty of room to layer a thick sweater and/or my nano puff but not so much fabric I look like I’m swimming in it. The sleeves of the XS fit me better as well, the size small went almost to my knuckles where as the XS ends in between my thumb and wrist. Hope this helps with sizing! It is a beautiful coat and so soft and warm, will definitely have this for years to come!

Beautiful coat that fits perfectly. It’s warm and the inside is so soft. I’m very happy with the fit considering in most reviews some women had trouble finding their happy place in it lol. I’m heavy chested and still feel like I have good room in the shoulders and top. It’s not too long either! Dream jacket for those long WI winters:)

This jacket is really cute and comfortable, but it was just massive on me. I usually wear a small or medium in Patagonia (I like my jackets roomy), and I chose the medium because of other reviewers’ warnings that the shoulders and sleeves ran small. The shoulders and sleeves were perfect on me, but the rest of the coat was massive - it came down to my knees and just looked ridiculous. I’m really sad to say I’ll be returning it because I feel that if I size down, the shoulders will be too tight.

Currently attending college in New England and it gets chilly here more often than not (especially during late-spring and early-autumn). I been eyeing this jacket for a while and wasn't sure whether or not I should take the plunge and purchase it, but I am happy that I did! I bought it in Owl Brown and online, the color looked too brown to me, but in person, it's a bit more dull. I haven't really worn it yet, but I definitely am excited to!

Fit didn't work for me

This is a great coat but the fit is odd for my body. I'm 5'7", 135lbs, medium frame. But, the shoulders were too tight and the sleeves too short on the small. The medium was too bulky and square shaped. .

I bought this jacket last winter. It's a great late fall, early winter jacket. I sometimes layer my down vest underneath it for added warmth. The sleeves are slightly on the short side, but I have long arms. I don't mind, though. The pockets are great--nice and deep. It's nice enough to wear around town and out in the woods. I bought the green color, and get a lot of compliments.

I wanted to love this coat - I originally found it via an Instagram feed/blogger who of course looked adorable in it and raved about it. My main problem was with the fit of the jacket, particularly in the sleeves. I'm petite at 5'4" and the sleeves were just too long. I could consider sizing down, but I'm not sure it would make enough of a difference and I'm worried a smaller size would be too snug through the shoulders and arms. I think it's a great jacket for someone taller than me. I wish there was a petite size!

This is a great coat that will be durable and extremely warm. Unfortunately, I was looking for something to take me from late fall through early spring and this is probably a bit heavier than I need :-)

I purchased the green jacket two months ago and have worn it almost every day since! It's very warm and has incredibly deep pockets. The ability to adjust the waist and bottom edge of the jacket is helpful and makes the jacket look more figure flattering. I have gotten a ton of complements on the neutral style of the jacket and I plan to wear it for years to come!

I chased a lady down at the airport to ask her about this jacket and she was kind enough to give me the details. It’s a bright saddle brown color that I first thought was suede. Love the style; I am very active outdoors and I think this will be a great addition, however like several others I found it to be too snug in the shoulder area. Tried it with a tank top and theres still not enough room to move my arms around, let alone wear a sweater. Returning it for a medium and am excited for it to arrive!

Medium end up fitting fine? I’m running into the same problem

I gave this jacket as a gift and here is what the recipient had to say about it. "Wore the jacket on the first really cold day of the fall/winter season in Wisconsin. Was super comfy and warm, and efficiently blocked the strong wind that day. Love the length and option to cinch the waist in for a more snug fit. Ordered the Large to allow for more room for layering underneath. All around very satisfied with this jacket and have work it almost daily since I got it."

I initially ordered a small in this jacket. (I'm a small in most brands except in OR I usually wear medium). Loved the jacket, I could tell it would fit my needs and be perfect for Montana winters. unfortunately it was super tight in the shoulders, chest, and short in the sleeves. I could only wear a t-shirt underneath and still felt restricted. Thankful to Backcountry for free shipping even on the returns! I am anxiously awaiting the size medium! I gave 4-stars because despite the weird sizing it seems like a nice looking tough jacket!

Are there inner pockets? And are the front breast pockets useable? The description says 2 hand pockets

Patagonia's site says: "Welted drop-in handwarmer pockets with additional double-needle chest pockets keep all your items safe" So the chest pockets are usable, but there are no inner pockets.
