Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Alright, friends, I’m going to be the negative Nancy here. I did NOT like this toque. I read the other reviews before I bought it and was taken w/ the idea of super soft and slouchy. It is soft but it doesn’t have any tightness to it at all. It eventually just slides right off my head, ruining the slouchy factor. It felt like I had it for years, in that it was totally stretched out. And since it doesn’t stay in place, I’m constantly pulling it down to cover my ears. What good is a hat that doesn’t keep your ears warm?? It’s not warm enough to keep your noggin warm during outdoor activities sans helmet but it’s warm enough for throwing on to run to the coffee shop (read: very thin). My personal opinion is that it’s soft and it’s good to cover unwashed hair while getting your latte but it’s not good for anything else.

I’ve had this for a little over a year now and I wear it all the time. I’ve slept in it while camping and while in my own bed at home b/c I just say no to high gas bills and it’s super comf. It’s definitely not technical and it’s a little bulky but it works in a pinch if you need to layer. I love that it’s machine washable. I’ve washed it a bunch and it’s just as soft as day one and the color is still as strong. Nothing is falling apart or coming undone and it’s been through a lot. I’m a 34C and sometimes need to bump up to a medium b/c of that but the small fits perfectly through my chest. All in all, I’m jazzed. A very worthwhile purchase!

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 4"
Weight: 145 lbs
Size Purchased: Small

I bought this parka last spring when it was on sale in the black. After reading the reviews, I figured for sure I’d need a size up and bought a medium. Imma have to be the contrary one and say I actually think this runs small. I exchanged it for a small and, honestly, I probably could have gotten an x-small. Small works b/c I can wear the currently-rad bell sleeve shirt under this coat w/o the sleeves bunching in my armpits like every other coat I own (and also wear layers if need be).

The pockets have one side fleece (I wish it was all fleece in there) but have zippers and are nice and deep so you can jam a lot of used tissues in there and forget about them. The main zipper has two zippers so I can zip up to my neck and then unzip around my legs so I don’t feel like I really am wearing a sleeping bag.

I think it’s fabulously warm but maybe some people should take what I’m saying w/ a grain of salt. I generally run hot and like it cold so I don’t break this out until it’s well under 32F. I live in Philadelphia and I see women rocking down parkas at 60F and I think some of these reviews may be written by these people. If you’re always super cold, you’ll have to layer. If you’re more like me and hate being overly hot, you probs won’t until it’s below zero.

It’s comfy, to the point where I worry I’m too comfy to look good but let me tell ya, it’s a chic coat. I can wear it to the office and still look professional. It’s also fitted and I think the quilted design helps w/ the figure-flatteringness of it all. My one complaint (ok, my second, the half fleece pockets are a bummer) is that after my first 1.5 weeks of wearing this (in a normal boring way, not doing jumping jacks or waving my arms excessively) almost every day, I started to see some feathers escaping from my back arm/armpit area. It was only a couple but I’ve got my eyes peeled b/c losing down would be no bueno indeed.

Over all, I’m a fan. It’s comfy and cute and warm. I think the cons are so minor and the pros so good that it’s worth it. Get it, girrrrrl.

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

I bought this for my niece this fall and she's never not wearing it. Her mother has to bribe her to take it off long enough to wash it (machine washable ftw!). The size is true, the fabric is comfy. It’s more a sweatshirt than outerwear so don’t buy this thinking it’ll do more than keep your kid cozy. I bought her the bermuda green and it’s less lime green than the pic and more turquoise.

I bought this last spring after my 5 year old EMS raincoat wimped out. So far, so good! I bought an XS b/c I knew Patagonia tends to run a bit big. I'm able to layer it w/ either a size XS or S EMS fleece underneath. I love the little brim on the hood. I'm a fan of how adjustable the whole shebang is. It's a great color (magenta) and a great cut. I'm totally satisfied w/ this purchase.

I received these as a Christmas gift this year and have only recently been able to wear them. The sole is nice and cushy, the size is true, the color is right on, but the horizontal strip across my foot is just too tight. I don't think I have particularly fat feet, either. Maybe my pair is the fluke pair that every batch has, but I feel like they're never completely on my feet, which bugs me. It's definitely a bummer that they don't fit correctly.
