heydanewrote a review of Patagonia Down Sweater Full-Zip Hooded Jacket - Women's on April 7, 2019
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I bought mine primarily for outdoor adventure and it has held up extremely well over 3 years. I'm 5'7 with an athletic build and busty chest, and purchased a large with the intention of layering. I liked the medium sizing better, but it became too tight with sweaters.
The jacket is long but it helps prevent the cold from getting in and you can use the elastic ties to cinch and adjust the hem. On it's own, it's kept me very warm during activity. However if it's below 30 and I don't layer with it, I'm definitely cold just walking around. That's in part to buying it a little large and the space it leaves between your skin.
The hood is adjustable as well. If it's not staying put, tug it down and it should catch. It easily fits over a helmet. Packed in its own pocket, it gets down about a 10" x 5" cube. It does the job when traveling with it, although not the smallest.
Mine has been very durable. Every time I think I've ripped it, the ripstop has done its job. The only downfall I've encounter is cleaning it. I have a bright blue color and some dirt stains just never come out. Not a huge deal but I do feel sloppy sometimes :P
