Patagonia Down Sweater - Boys'

The coziest sweater he'll ever own.

He'll love the Patagonia Boys' Down Sweater whether he's wearing it as a midlayer in ski school or by itself at boring school. Its Traceable down comes from non-live-plucked and non-force-fed ducks, and Patagonia had that third-party-verified for good conscience. The DWR-coated windproof shell battles the elements to keep him comfortably dry on walks home in stormy weather.

  • DWR-coated windproof shell
  • 600-fill Traceable duck down insulation

Grandsons love them.

    They love the camo look, kept them warm, and they were able to layer under it.


    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: XXL

    This item was HUGE! I'm 5'2, 105 lbs female, and did all the measurements that it told me to do for this jacket, which led me to the XXL and put me in the size 18 bracket. When I received this jacket it literally went to my knees and there was WAY too much extra fabric. I would not recommend this jacket to ANYONE.

    5'5" 110 lbs. 32B. Proportionally sturdy shoulders. I buy the girl's version in XL. Love the cut. Great patterns.

    Purchased for my 11 year old son, but also purchased paints with. This is so ideal for kids to stay warm. As parents we want to comfort of knowing our kids are warm. With the proper underclothes or long johns, this is so perfect fr powder days and snow days to stay warm. Highly recommend. Happy child happy snow day, PERIOD.

    For my little football star

    My nephew is quite the active kid. He kills it on and off the field and loves his gear. So a Patagonia only seemed like the right choice. He has had several Patagonia jackets and his mother finds the quality better than The North Face so we keep it traditional. He's a growing boy with a 6'4" dad and 5'9" mom. Their family is in Dallas so layering is preferred and this jacket works out great for cooler mornings for practice.

    They also love the physical quality, stitch work and good thought Patagonia puts behind the creating and design when it comes to a better way we live.

    Perfect for layering

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    • Size Bought: XL

    My 12 yr old son loves this coat. He layers it with a waterproof technical shell on cold days & for skiing. It is a little wide in the body for thin kids like mine, but it is still nice.

    Is this a really warm jacket for cold New England winters?

    Probably not. This is marketed as a down sweater, which means that the shell will not be durable compared to a traditional jacket, nor will it be as warm.

    I'm in New England and both of my kids (9 and 11) seem really happy with traditional ski jackets.

    Awesome jacket

    I bought this jacket about two years ago because it was on sale at REI. However, it has turned into my go-to jacket for backpacking and camping. I have brought it on many fall/ winter trips, and it is great. Paired with a longsleeve shirt and a Gore-Tex jacket, in kept me plenty warm while sitting through an outdoor leadership course this December. With temps in the 30's and 40's, I was comfortable.

    However, this jacket has begun to leak a lot and the lightweight nylon exterior feels like it is just waiting to be shredded into pieces by the first tree branch it touches. This can be countered by wearing a soft or hard shell over it.

    Bonus: It is extremely light and compressible.

    Can you keep a secret?

    I'm a petite adult female and not very busty (5' 5", 120 lbs.). I purchased this jacket in a size XL. It's definitely a relaxed fit, which I love, so I can add more layers if I need to. You give up some warmth and quality vs. the adult version (mainly the zippers) and there isn't an inside pocket. But this has absolutely become my Go To Jacket and I've put it through the wringer. I bought to better match my ski school jacket (royal blue). I want to get one in every color. Love the price too.


      Expensive jacket, but it will keep your little nugget warm!

      Love it

      I bought a boys XL and I am a petit woman. It has worked out great. Lacks some of the little extras of the adult jacket... inside pocket, but the fit works well and I can wear a sweater under it for cooler weather. I bought the hickory color and like it because it will not show dirt and it is a cool color with out being overly bright.

      Perfect light but warm down jacket

      I bought this in size XS for my tall 4 year old son. He usually wears a 5T. The jacket is slightly big on him but still fits - I hope it will last into next year too. I purchased this jacket b/c it is super warm but still light enough to easily and comfortably fit under car seat straps in the car (unlike his heavy snow jacket). For sledding and playing in the snow, we use his waterproof snow jacket, not this one. But for winter outings when we will be riding in the car, this jacket is perfect.

        LOVED LOVED LOVED this jacket until the zipper came off in my hands two weeks after purcahse

        Just like the mens, but smaller

          I love mine after a long day to keep me warm at camp. So I figured since my son said liked mine I would get him one too. He is only 5 and I got him the small, which is too big for him, but he can still wear it this year and if things go right next year too. Quality is exactly the same as mine, which I love and has been used extensively. In fact the only difference is mine has a pocket on the inside, while his doesn't. He was stoked to get living in So Cal, we just have to wait for it to be cold enough to use, or wait for a few free days to get on the trail.
