Patagonia Down Sweater Jacket - Men's

Stay warm, stay motivated.

Mustering up the will power to get out of your sleeping bag in the early hours of the morning when frost clings to your tent walls can be daunting. So before you wait for your camp mates to come shake you out of bed, know that the Patagonia Men's Down Sweater Jacket will keep you just about as cozy as your sleeping bag did thanks to its plush 800-fill down insulation and windproof exterior. Each down cluster can be traced back to geese that were never live plucked or force fed, and its incredibly warm and compressible so you can stash it away when the temperatures rise. The eco-friendly fabric is made entirely from recycled materials and is treated with a DWR finish to shed light precip whether you're exploring a new-to-you trail somewhere in the Tetons, climbing granite in the Enchantments, or ripping skins in the Wasatch backcountry.

Classic

    I sweat, I do not perspire. With that means that I cannot wear down jackets when I am working hard and sweating (even with down treatment). For me, the down jacket is for cold nights at camp after I have cooled down and am not swimming in my sweat.

    A Patagonia Classic

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

    This jacket is a must from everyday casual wear to technical layering. The down insulation provides plenty of warmth and the lightweight design allows the jacket to pack down nicely. I wear it around town and under my ski jacket on chilly days.

    The Utility Knife

    As comfortable being worn around town to the coffee shop as it is as a mid-layer on the mountain, the Patagonia down sweater does not disappoint in its versatility. It is surprisingly warm for how lightweight if feels, and packs down nicely so you can toss it in your pack when out on a dawn patrol ski tour. Bottom line, the Patagonia Down Sweater is at home in any cold weather environment: from the urban errand runner, to the early morning dawn patroller, this coat gets it done.

    Classic puffy

    • Size Bought: Medium

    This is a very nice down jacket that works great as a layering piece or as an outer layer. The fit is true to size so I would not recommend sizing up or down in this specific model. Also this jacket is quite packable so you can easily use it when skiing or hiking and stuff it into a backpack if you get too warm.

    Overall a solid down jacket that I would recommend to anyone looking for a quality puffy.

    Exceptional Jacket

    I could not live without this jacket. It's weight, warmth and packability make it the perfect jacket for almost any situation. I pair it with my torrentshell and I am always ready for anything. I have put this jacket to the test and it has out performed my expectations. Perfect for day hikes or as a base layer skiing. Most utilized jacket in my quiver, hands down

    Great Product; Terrible Return Policy

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium

    The Patagonia Down sweater is great and the workmanship is also excellent! 5 stars for that
    Nonetheless, The return department at Backcountry is Horrible! The right hand does not have a clue of what the left hand is doing.
    Yes, BAckcountry sends daily emails with their sales, promotions, new products etc. and their sales team is great. BUT, they have not paid enough attention to their returns department. It took over a months for me to get my money backon a return THEY had lost. They never sent me emails nor did they contact me. I had to chat with them every other day and did not come through until I got serious and talked to my lawyers. ZERO STARS for that department!!!!

    Not disputing the problem you report, but my experience with a Backcountry return was just the opposite: it could not have been better. And the return was necessitated due to MY MISTAKE, yet they didn't flinch to correct the problem.

    Two thumbs up

    I originally decided to buy the down sweater without the hood for layering under my shell but I've found that I've ended up wearing it around town and for running errands more than skiing. The cold days I did wear it skiing I was very glad I had it, especially those really chilly days when I was sitting on the lift. I'd probably use a down vest a little more for skiing than the down sweater, just because I tend to be a little warmer in the upper body than others. Besides skiing this has been my "go to" jacket from November to March, these northern Utah winters can be cold. The down sweater is very light and comfortable, easy to layer or wear by its self. It's obvious to me why this jacket has so many great reviews, extremely versatile, lightweight and comfortable. Plus it all packs into a single pocket and doesn't take up much space.

    Great for around town and backcountry

    I was on the fence about this jacket. I really did not like how flimsy and thin the ultralight version was but I wanted a great down jacket that was also as light as possible. I was torn between this one and another jacket by another brand that was about 4 ounces lighter. I opted to buy both for maximum flexibility and choice. I realize this is not always an option (and the first time I have done this myself), but I could have stuck with the Down Sweater, to be honest.

    I sweat, I do not perspire. With that means that I cannot wear down jackets when I am working hard and sweating (even with down treatment). For me, the down jacket is for cold nights at camp after I have cooled down and am not swimming in my sweat.

    I have already taken this jacket out a couple of times and I love the weight and packability. I purchased a 3L dry sack (because I live in the PNW) and found that in the dry sack this jacket packs down smaller than in its own pocket stuff sack. The jacket sat beautifully in the bottom of my pack without taking much space until lunch time when, after a full morning of rigorous snowshoeing, I needed to let my mid layer dry off a bit. I was warm within minutes in this jacket, fresh out of the stuff sack. The jacket puffed up quickly and I was actually overheating and had to vent the jacket after 10 minutes.

    This jacket is also much more rugged than the ultralight version. This may not be as much of a deal for some as it is for me but I want a jacket that can withstand me and my less than graceful ways and accidents. I also tend to push my gear hard. I have also worn it out around town a couple of times and it blocks the wind enough to keep me warm but also lets enough in that I am not cooking inside (which happens a lot). Please keep in mind that I run warmer than most.

    If I had a complaint (which is not enough to effect my rating of the jacket), it would be that the cut is a little on the generous side. I wear a large in most brands unless they run small and usually, with a couple layers on, a large will fit over everything with little room to spare. I am not super slender or overly muscular but I also do not have a midsection either. This jacket is almost too generously cut for my liking. There is no question that you can layer plenty underneath this jacket and it will still feel comfortable. With a t-shirt or a couple light layers, this jacket is very roomy. This could be good for some but maybe not for others. I rated the jacket as true to size but some may consider the jacket to run large.

    Needless to say that this jacket, despite the extra 4 ounces, is worth it to me over the ultralight version. It looks good both around town and keeps you warm in the backcountry. A great all around jacket. And Patagonia's views on the environment make it one of the few companies that I purchase gear from.

    Great fit!

    Lightweight warm jacket

    My husband loved the previous version of this jacket, it was a medium and was excited to update after the zipper failed on the last one. The new medium jacket is much smaller and rides up around his chest and armpits. The material is very slippery and hard to hold a backpack on one shoulder without it sliding off. He got his old jacket repaired and continues to wear that one.

    Well worth it

    This jacket Is great. I Tried 3 different down puff jackets before this one (2 marmot and 1 north face) and all 3 of those brands leaked feathers.
    So far so good on this one.

    awesome

      i owned one of these and my husband likes mine so i have to buy him one too

      Classic

        This is a nice down jacket. Fit and quality are great. Can't take it off.

        This is by far the best jacket I have ever bought. Extremely light, stylish, comfortable and warm. Backcountry had a great price on it. Not sure what makes it a sweater, but very much feels like a jacket.

        Amazing

        Was hesitant about ordering this jacket, but could not be happier. It'as so light but at the same time it's very very warm. The quality of the down allows it to be packed into a very small form factor, which makes it ideal for travel. The build quality is second to none, as with all Patagonia products.

        Awesome, lightweight jacket

        Bought the jacket because of the warmth and weight stated in other reviews, intended to use for backpacking. Haven't had the opportunity to use for the high country, but have worn in the Sierra foothills during chilly mornings. At 25 degrees I was nice and toasty.

        I love this jacket! It's lightweight and packs easily, but keeps me warm in the cold Utah winters. I purchased mine in black and it is versatile to wear in just about any situation. I would definitely recommend for an everyday jacket!

        Great jacket for some a size smaller

        • Fit: Runs small
        • Size Bought: Medium

        Several reviewers have pointed out the small sizing to these Patagonia jackets. At least in my case it's the distribution of the small sizing. The shoulders and sleeves of my medium jacket fit fine. It's around the waist where things get dicey. I have a 32 inch waist and the thing fits like a girdle. No other medium size jacket I own has a similar problem. Apparently they designed it this way but it's hard to understand why.

        Jacket Perfection

        Seriously, I never want to take it off. Super light. Repels light water. Warm, but breathes well and doesn't feel humid inside. Easily my favorite jacket purchase ever.
