Patagonia Down Sweater Hooded Jacket - Men's
PatagoniaDown Sweater Hooded Jacket - Men's

Protective features, environmentally conscious.

Stow Patagonia's Down Sweater Hooded Men's Jacket inside its chest pocket on your next backpacking trip, high-elevation climb, or midwinter ski trip—just be sure to let it out regularly so its plush 800-fill Traceable Down insulation retains its soft loft over time. Patagonia's Traceable Down comes from non-live-plucked and non-force-fed geese; a fact that's been third-party-verified. To enhance its green status, Patagonia made the shell out of a recycled polyester ripstop that's light, windproof, and water-resistant thanks to a DWR finish.

Patagonia updated the Down Sweater with a more contoured fit that's longer for better coverage on cold camping trips. At a single pull, the hood cinches comfortably and securely around your head, and the hem and both cuffs help retain the down's wonderful warmth. Patagonia also added two zippered handwarmers and a zippered internal chest pocket that doubles as a stow pocket when it's time to head back home.

  • An insulating layer ideal for climbing, hiking, and skiing
  • 800-fill Traceable Down insulation is lightweight and compressible
  • Weather-shedding shell made from recycled polyester
  • Single-pull adjustable hood is quickly adjusted to combat wind
  • Adjustable hem and elasticized cuffs work to lock in heat
  • Jacket stows in interior chest pocket for easy packing
  • Contoured fit helps reduce bulk and longer hem increases coverage
  • Patagonia is dedicated to crafting sustainable outdoor gear

Warm Puffy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

I love the fleece that is very large inside the collar. Everything else about this jacket is pretty standard in comparison with other puffy jackets in its class. If you don't have one of these already, where have you been the last 8 years?

Great jacket

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

Bought a few of these as gifts for Christmas and everyone loved them.

A must have

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I finally broke down and snagged one of these bad boys and I'm glad I did! The only negative to report is the jacket fits a little too slim for me but I will adjust in time.

Awesome

Great all winter

Decent lightweight down hoody sweater.

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

Saw it on sale and bought it at a decent price, though elsewhere.
Men's XL fits true to size though it's slightly more roomy in the waist area and slightly more narrow in the shoulders and arms, similar to the non-hoody sweater.
Already own the vest and non-hoody jacket and now own the hoody version to make a complete set. Best of all... all three are red ;)
Hoody is good for windy days so don't worry much about not carrying a fleece hat.
Basically, it's the same as the non-hoody version but with a hood.
Best to wear when it's high 30s F to 40s-50s with lightweight fleece underneath.
The down sweater hoody/non-hoody versions are NOT meant for Cold, wintry weather wear as in mid-30s F or below. The jacket then is meant to be worn as a mid-layer with base layers underneath and worn underneath an insulated jacket/parka as insulation. Contacted Patagonia help line and reps stated as much!
Overall, it's a nice, relatively warm jacket for cooler temps as stated previously and it's fashionable.

Great puffy

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

This puffy is great, very warm for its weight. It has lost some feathers through the seams, but nothing unusual

Perfect for PNW and New England!!

I really like what the company stands for as a whole, and the quality they provide with their products. Their jackets and shirts always fit me super well and having this jacket for 3 years now there is no tears and its as comfortable as the first time i put it on. Living in Oregon and visiting family in New England during the Winter time this jacket to keep me warm and dry all the time. Its super warm and never too cumbersome to take on trips.

Great Jacket..

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

This jacket is great...it's light weight yet extremely warm. I was recently skiing in Vermont in 5 degree weather and it kept me warm. XL was perfect at 5'10" 215 with an athletic build and it still had room to layer underneath. Backcountry as always is the best place to buy apparel and equipment. Prices are great and customer service is an industry leader.

Thanks for the great review Michael! I'm glad the Down Sweater is treating you well. Awesome piece!

my go to down jacket!

Beyond happy with the performance of this jacket! This down jacket does it all... performs as great insulation layer during cold days on the mountain, holds it's own on mild weather hikes, and still can wear to work in the morning! I've been really happy with this patagonia down jacket and I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

love it

These coats are comfortable and light weight. While not sub zero temp coats and not designed for it they do keep you warm in mid 20-30s temps

Great comfort and great warmth

Very warm when needed, but not too warm when indoors either. Comfortable, fits great, and looks great!

love it

    Perfect fit and light weight fits true to size

    Versitle Go-to Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Large

    I had my last down sweater for 7 Years and still love it. Added the hooded version for extra warmth. Only warning is it seems the sizing is now a little smaller. My mom-hood is a medium I needed a large in the hooded version.

    A Classic

    Nothing better. A true classic. One of the best down jackets on this site. Keeps you perfectly warm and doesnt fall apart like most down jackets.

    His Favorite Patagonia Jacket!

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

    I gifted this to my boyfriend for Christmas, here is his feedback:

    Pros:
    The Patagonia Down Sweater Hooded Jacket is the lightest down jacket I have ever owned. I am very impressed with the insulation that this jacket provides. I was also surprised that you can pack the jacket into its own pocket; that will be a very useful feature when I go backpacking.

    Cons:
    The jacket only has three pockets. In my book, the more pockets the better.

    Everyone's Favorite Puffy.

    I love Patagonia products, They are so reliable and with the lifetime warranty you can't really go wrong. I recently bought this for my father after his very old puffy needed an update. I have the ladies version of this exact jacket and my dad and I wear these almost everyday in the fall/winter! He actually never takes his off... It is the perfect jacket for layering in the winter or belaying your bud at the crag on a really chilly fall day. I have even brushed this against rock and has never snagged or ripped. LOVE.

    Patagonia down sweater hooded jacket

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

    My girlfriend got me this for a Christmas present and I loved it for a day until the stitches on the left cuff started to come undone. I have literally worn this for one day and the threads are already starting to break. I'm sure this is a defective product and i will be returning it for a new one. On the other hand though, this jacket is super warm and lightweight!

    Is this the grey color?

    Yes

    The Gold Standard

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

    I've had this jacket for about a month now and have used it almost every day. I use it to walk to and from work. I've hiked with it up to 12,000'. I've put it on post surf immediately after peeling off my wetsuit. I've slept in it inside my bag on the beach in Northern California December. I sometimes find myself wearing it when I probably don't need to be wearing it. It's so damn comfortable you'll want to live in it. It definitely hits the sweet spot between everyday winter wear and lightweight backpacking functionality. Pieces like the Micro Puff or Ghost Whisperer are great for very specific purposes, but bottom line is that the extra weight here is not only warmer, but more importantly grants you the ability to walk around town without looking like you're wearing a trash bag. The only con I have noticed--at least living in a town like Boulder--is that it seems like everyone has one of these in one form or another. Awkward feeling when ten other people in your immediate radius are wearing either the same thing or something very similar.

    Last note on size. I'm 5'11" 180lbs, slim and somewhat lanky by design, but reasonably well-muscled and athletic. The L fits me very well. Somewhat form fitting with enough room to layer a sweatshirt underneath. I see some people my size claiming a M. I tried the M on and for me there's no way! Immediately restricting and I lost a great deal of movement with just a t-shirt underneath. Even if I preferred a very slim fit it would have been a poor choice for doing anything other than standing still with my arms at my side.

    Unanswered Question

    What Patagonia shells are compatible with this jacket since it's not an active fit? I'm looking for a weatherproof hardshell
