Great transitional weather coat!

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I just received this coat. It is a great length - comes mid-thigh (5'7), it is very soft and I love the high funnel neck to keep warm. The sipper and button closure is great and the adjustable tabs at the waist the give a little shape is perfect. I also really like the pleated exterior pockets - gives a nice detail. Unfortunately I am between sizes - I tried the medium and could make it work but it is a little big. The small was too tight in my chest (34D) with a sweater underneath. BUMMER!!!

Great everyday jacket

This is the most stylish and casual fleece jacket I ever owned. I am petite and I purchased the XS in black. It has a slimmer fit with the cinch ties adjusted and I am able to wear a thinner sweater underneath with out feeling bulky. It kept me warm on very cool Southern California mornings (50s). The length is perfect a few inches above my knees. I have machine washed it 3 times and the color and shape are excellent. I would purchase it in another color if my size was available.

Love this Sweater coat

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: large

The style has changed slightly from the older one I have, the pockets have pleats which cause them to bulge out, BUT! I've shown them down as this fixed the issue which I thought made it appear sloppy. The result is flat pockets, which presents more "put together". The price is a little steep for "better" sweat shirt material, the collar is high funnel neck which keeps my chin warm. Overall, love it cause its a little dressy and looks like a coat dress.

Is this going to keep you warm enough in around 20 F? I like the look and need a more formal jacket for work and church, but I want to be able to wear it without too much layering. And I'm assuming it's not windproof like the better sweater jacket???

I definitively wouldn't recommend this jacket past the 40's, Angie.

The Better Sweater inst windproof either, but if you think that's warm enough for you in the 20's then this should be too...

I normally wouldnt advise it but everyone has different tolerances for cold!

I love this coat! I can wear it casual or for work. It is very warm on cold days. Best coat I have purchased.

Wearing this everyday!

I wanted something that was light weight yet warm, that I could wear with my work out pants and nikes. I love this. I ended up wearing with work out attire, under my other patagonia coat for extra warm, with jeans. It is so versatile. it well exceed my expectations. -- Ben's wife

Odd fit

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Size Bought: Small

I was excited to see this new version of Patagonia's better sweater coat with a zipper (not double, though), new for fall 2016. Unfortunately, I found this item to have something of an odd fit. Unlike other better sweaters with long sleeve length, this particular coat came up just above my wrist bone. Also, the fit through the shoulders felt a little narrower than the typical fit for my size. In contrast, the rest of the coat was generously cut, so I am reluctant to try to size up in order to gain additional sleeve length, as I think the rest of the coat will be too voluminous. The sleeves themselves are not tight. Not sure whether fit is by design or whether it was mis-cut, but I did read an additional review on another site addressing the same issue with sleeve length.

Compliments after the 1st wear

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XS

I purchased this in late spring so I haven't had much use for it yet. But it's very soft and stylish, and the cut is feminine and flattering. I love the length, and that's largely what drew me to this jacket ... I wanted a lighterweight jacket to cover me over some of my longer cardigans. It arrived with an unpleasant chemical odor that, thankfully, washed right out ... and it looked beautiful after washing on cold/gentle and laying to dry. As a petite person the XS was my ideal size (I'm typically XS in t-shirts or size 2 petite in tops), as the S was too large in the shoulders and too long in the arms. I definitely am looking forward to wearing it more frequently come fall and next spring. The classic navy is a pretty, multipurpose shade.

Adorable Coat

  • Size Bought: M

(From the Wife) This is such a great style of coat! It's super cute and classic looking. Great fit and comfy hang on the mid thigh. Loved the pockets too. But, I just couldn't justify spending the money so I sent it back. I will probably end up buying it again though!

Style and length

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

The style of the jacket is great. Love the high collar, comes to my jawline. It is loose over my small stomach area having the few pleats. I love the length, it covers my behind. Also the black color is slmost like a dark charcoal gray, to me it isnt a true black. Its nice.
What i dont like about the coat: I havemt worn it outside but it is thinner than other fleeces, i am concerned it will keep me warm in cool weather but because the style is exactly what Im looking for i will keep it.

pretty good but not incredible

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

bought this as a gift and it fit ok but was not super impressed with the quality, doesnt look as cool as other patagonia coats i've seen in the past, the person who got the gift hasnt complained so her feedback is that she likes it.
