Give winter chills the bird.

Shrug off cold and biting temps with the Patagonia Men's Hi-Loft Down Jacket. Thermal efficiency is the name of the game when you're hunkered down at altitude, and with a generous dose of high loft 600-fill goose down, this jacket insulates your core so you stay nice and toasty when winter weather would have it otherwise. Recycled ripstop fabric puts up with a bit of abuse, and a DWR coating sheds moisture. Since the jacket is insulated with traceable down, you can rest assured that no geese were force-fed or live-plucked to make this jacket. 

  • Eco-friendly insulation for hiking, climbing, or skiing
  • Down insulation sourced from geese that weren't live-plucked
  • Recycled ripstop material helps reduce waist in landfills
  • DWR finish protects down fill from light precipitation
  • Insulated hood helps reduce heat loss and protects from wind
  • Regular fit can be worn as a midlayer or standalone jacket
  • Patagonia produces sustainable outerwear and outdoor gear

I am 5' 5" and 132 lbs. I really like all of the properties of this jacket, but I'm concerned with it running large that the xs will still be too large. Would the kids xl be an option, and if the fit is right, would the durability and quality be there?

Perfect around town piece

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

I have a handful of insulated jackets, both synthetic and down, but none were warm enough for every day use on the most frigid days. This one is perfect for the coldest days in SLC and PC. Like other reviewers have mentioned, it's a slightly boxier fit, but I was expecting that no surprises for me. If you're in between sizes and planning on wearing it just over a t-shirt or sweat, consider sizing down. The fit doesn't get any more tapered, but it will likely look better in a slightly smaller size.
Overall I love this jacket!

Great, Lightweight, Warm Down Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: XL

This is exactly what I wanted. I had tried the Patagonia Down Sweater that I got on my REI 20%off member sale. For me and my metabolism I found it wasn't warm enough. (Didn't keep me warm at 50*. What good is that?) So I returned it. I saw that the Hi-Loft jacket was the next step up in warmth over the Down Sweater. If I'm needing warmth I need/want something more substantial than a sweater weight jacket. This jacket fits the bill perfectly for me. Just standing around it keeps me comfortable in the low 40's and with exertion easily into the 30's and upper 20's. I've shoveled snow with a wind chill into the mid-teens and been comfortable. Yes, it is a bit heavier than the Down Sweater and packs a bit bigger. But for me warmth trumps a few extra ounces. The front hand pockets are cavernous. I stash hats, gloves, and hands in there no problem. The whole thing (minus hats and gloves of course!) packs into the zippered internal chest pocket. It would make a decent pillow if you are camping. I would say the fit is just a bit large. I am 6' 2" and about 220lbs. The sleeve length is perfect and the jacket has a slight drop tail design that covers my butt like I want. There is also an elastic drawstring around the bottom hem of the jacket that works easily and well.

My only small complaint is I wish the hood were cut a little fuller to cover my cheeks better. There is a single elastic drawstring adjustment on the back of the hood that snugs the hood around the face, but even doing that it still doesn't cover my cheeks really well.

My main use for this jacket so far has been after skiing and general wear. I bought the Ash color. It's not quite as brown as the picture on the website. My wife says it has a bit of a gold tinge to it. I'll take her word for it, LOL! Still like it though.

I would recommend this to anyone looking for something warmer than the Down Sweater but still wants a relatively lightweight, packable down jacket.

Patagonia Light and Warm

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

I gifted this jacket to my dad and have his feedback to share:

This is the lightest winter jacket I have ever owned. Just as warm as my normal winter jackets weighing 3X as much. Can wear this over a T-shirt in 20 degree F weather and still stay warm. The Grey/Green color looks good with all outdoor clothing and doesn’t show dirt. Nice large hood keeps the wind/moisture out and can easily fit over other headwear. Men’s large fits as expected (I am 6’ and 180#).

It's like a parka.

  • Fit: True to size

I was looking for a winter jacket and definitely got one and was surprised by the difference between this "jacket" and the down sweater. It's definitely bulkier, in terms of loft and fill, which I wanted. If you're looking for a layering piece, you might want to consider the down sweater.

I fell comfortable in this. Best Jacket I've bought. It's the second Down Hoody of Patagonia's I've bought and this one is the better. I loved the color and the fit but what made me extra happy was the improved cuffs. Go to your nearest Patagonia retailer and find out what I mean. Thanks be to God for Yvon Chouinard.

Perfect for around town

One of the warmest jackets I've ever put on. Check out my video below for an in depth review of this super warm and stylish puffy.

You need a bigger size. That size is too small for you.

im 6'1 and 200 pounds what size would work well if i wanted to wear a sweater under it?

An extra large would give you enough room.

Sizing, Up or Down, Is Relative

    Yes, this does fit slightly larger than the Down Sweater in a Large: Ca. 1.5" across shoulders, 1" around chest and 2" around the hem. The latter is undesired by me, but the other specs I need. For those, like me, who find the XL Down Sweater to be far too boxy and the Large snugger than desired the fit of the Hi-Loft is very welcome. It allows me to size down to Large and get a very good fit.

    ok guys I'm looking at this and the Arcteryx cerium sv hoody which is gonna be tougher and last the longest, I'm not to concerned with warmth I have a base layer but I want it to last a while .

    Great for when it gets real cold

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

    I have a fair amount of Patagonia insulation from the Nano Puff to the Patagonia Hi-Loft Hoody and when it gets really cold, this my go to jacket. I wear it around town, and I've summited Kili in it, and climbed in the alps with it.

    The insulation provides warmth and comfort when it gets well below zero, and the hood fits easily over a hat as long as you don't have a pom on top of it.

    The one downside is that the pockets could be fleece lined to provide a bit more comfort. Other than that, this jacket is awesome.

    Sizing is larger than Patagonia down swe

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    • Size Bought: Small

    Very warm and adequate loft. Had to return for a small as the sizing is larger than expected. Maybe if it's meant to wear over everything else then it's spot on, but I'm using it under a shell for skiing.

    Patagonia rules Patagonia rules!

    This jacket is made very well and looks great. I love Patagonia's mission and products.

    Great Coat for my Husband

    Warm, but still lightweight puff jacket.
    Comfortable and easy to pack.
    Excellent for our cold, Central Oregon Winters

    For kicking around town

      This Jacket is incredibly warm. I'm not sure if it'd keep you alive in the backcountry but, if you're out n about in the city, you'll be toasty on even the coldest winter day. I never need a mid-layer under this thing; just a t-shirt or oxford. Like all Patagonia products, it's got a nice form-fitting cut. I highly recommend it

      Incredibly warm

      Just bought this recently for the cold Montana winter approaching. I can wear just a t-shirt under this jacket around 15 degrees and still be pretty comfortable. Great buy.

      Winters best friend.

        To say I love this coat in an understatement. Super comfortable, super warm and still packs small enough to take on frigid summit accents. I'll actually pack this jacket and summit with my summit series L4 so when I get to base camp I have a warm and dry down cloud to get inside. That being said this is also the perfect jacket for tooling around town when the north east weather comes out full force. I'm just so impressed with how the loft of this jacket comes back to life every time its unpacked. Fit is great and knowing that geese and ducks weren't tortured to fill this jacket makes me sleep better at night. Happy adventures.

        Winters best friend.

        inconsistent fit from a great brand

        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Medium

        Too many days of suffering at the higher reaches of the Rockies this past season and I knew I had to finally begin my search for a down jacket. This one was on great sale so I bit. I am ALWAYS a medium in Pataguchi, but I returned this. I have a couple of observation for you if you're considering this one from the big P.

        First, this jacket has an awkward fit - the body is boxier than a normal Patagonia and the sleeves shorter. The room in the midsection is not really a big issue and to be expected with a down jacket. While there was this room, the cut of the jacket was still that Patagonia quality so it wasn't like wearing a bag from Columbia or Marmot. Biggest issue and reason for the return was the sleeves. Easily a full inch shorter that I have ever seen on a jacket form this brand.

        The goods - Its lower hem length makes it a good stand-alone. I could also get my shell over it without compressing the down. The hood is deluxe. While down its like your that guy walking around the airport with his travel pillow around is neck. It is Hi-Loft after all.

        Im 6' and 180 lb. 43 chest, 33 waist ( narrowest part of my torso ) I always run a medium in Patagonia and Arc'teryx. I prefer a closer, more athletic fit. Bummed this one didn't work out.
