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.

Amazing

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

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

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

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.

Playmaker

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

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • 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

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

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.

A Favorite

Light weight; Grey color; Stay warm on brisk winter walks.

Good, but not Great

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

Patagonia needs to make their jackets American size, not European. I wear an XL with every other jacket or shirt except Patagonia. This thing was too tight, and I'm not sure if Patagonia is simply trying to skimp on cost. But as expensive as their jackets are, this thing should fit perfectly.

Also, while the jacket is warm for the size, can we update the shell a bit Patagonia? This thing rips at the drop of a dime. Don't even think of getting it near a fence or a flame. Let's update the jacket some, and get a shell that is firmer and one that doesn't melt if you're roasting marshmallows.

Aside from that the jacket is warm and thin, making it very portable. It just greatly needs an update to address the issues mentioned.

Great jacket!!

This jacket is so well fit and warm it's not even funny. Kansas winds can be brutal this time of year. I walk outside and every part of my body is cold except my torso and arms where the jacket covers. I would say this jacket is great for 30 and above if you are just wearing a t-shirt underneath. If you wear a heavier layer underneath you'll probably be good even lower in temperature. I would NOT buy this jacket for the full price of $229. For the price I got it, I would have bought 2. Wait for the sales, and don't forget about price matching. I purchased a large so I could wear a button up underneath and layers. Medium would have fit me well with a single layer underneath. Large is not too big. This jacket may look bulky in the pictures, but it isn't. Very lightweight.

Warm, lightweight, packs well

  • Fit: True to size

Gave this as a gift and he loves it so far. The jacket is true to size.
It's warm enough to go skiing in and packs down small which will be helpful for backpacking. Its great that the jacket can be stuffed into its own pocket.
He says he's likely to purchase another one in the future.

Great

What a awesome coat keeps me warm and is super light got a lot of compliments runs a little small but still a good fit with a XL

Can you hug a jacket back?

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had my Patagonia Down Sweater for a couple of years now and love it. The down creates a soft warm setup which is extremely comfortable and versatile.

I start to wear this jacket (transitioning from the Nano Puff) when the weather starts to go below freezing. The fit is true to size, but I went up a size to add more flexibility with layering. I've used it several times as a ski jacket when it gets cold, and the extra size allows me to easily layer up without reducing mobility.

Great fit & great looking jacket. Very comfortable. Just the right weight.

Colorado Weather? No Problem.

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

This purchase really solidified for me why I am so faithful to the Patagonia brand (not that I needed anymore reason to like Patagonia). I live in Colorado ski country, and in the big city too, it fits in perfectly with both settings -- this jacket was much warmer than expected, and looks amazing! The material is quality, and the effectiveness of keeping me warm is even better. The sizing was spot on too, which is super important. I am seriously considering ordering another one in black to add to my jacket collection.

A ture Classic

This is one of the better down jackets on the market right now. The build quality is predictable and the fit is great. Patagonia also has a great warranty and repair program.

Patagonia wins again!

I got this hoping it would work as a lightweight winter jacket (with layering figured in of course). I was right! Same amazing quality as all my other Patagonia gear, the material is durable. I've worn this while climbing/scrambling throughout dark sandstone caves/ridgelines. No rips are immediate damage to the downs. If you wear your downs gear the way its supposed to (heavily), there will be sweat/oil/elementals stains after time. Those aspects just add character to the garment I believe. A great addition to the collection. Layers great with a Patagonia Synchilla Snap T pullover too.

Great jacket!

I love this jacket! Own it in two colors. It is super warm and I love that is stuffs into its own pocket.

Dad loves it!

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

My dad is puffy obsessed--he's 6'5" with looong arms, and the XL fits him perfectly. The Ash Tan color is a little more khaki in real life, and it goes well with the earth tones he tends to wear.

warm, light-weight, practical

I bought this for my boyfriend, he wears it everyday! It looks great on him. It is so light weight and warm. Great for skiing, and just being outside in the winter. Not too puffy, making it very easy to layer with as well. You can also stuff it into it's own pocket and turns a little pillow! Awesome winter jacket from Patagonia.
