Protect the ocean so it can protect us

Our future is tied to the ocean. Its shared seas connect us through food, culture and sport. The home of amazing, abundant life, it’s also a powerful climate solution. Yet the practice of bottom trawling threatens to destroy this precious resource—bulldozing our ocean floor, undermining small-scale fisheries and deepening the climate crisis. Let's end this destructive practice, starting with an immediate ban in marine protected areas and inshore zones.

Ws Melton Wool Overshirt Jacket

Kinda Large
September 23, 2023


Well the fit certainly isn't going to WOW anyone (very oversized) but this is the sort of piece that one keeps a lifetime. Its super thick, yummy brown, excellent quality, lots of pockets and just as warm, water protecting and timeless as it gets. Not sexy, just practical! And so much better than those plastic-feeling down jackets. Definitely ... Read Morepleased. Wish the XS were available as downsizing 1-2 is the way to go.

Style is built more for Men

Really wished this would've fit nicely. I started off ordering a large and had to return 2 to get down to the size that fit me which was a small. I'm usually a large in women's Patagonia gear. The material was so nice but the style on the shoulders just made me look like a linebacker.

Could be a dream

Got this on sale, and yes, it is very oversized. I got the medium and the small would’ve been a way better fit but they were sold out. I will say that the silhouette and cut of this is flattering! It works well with the oversized fit and I can wear a cozy sweater under this shirt. I’ve gotten loads of compliments since I’ve worn it.

Great quality, weird fit

I'm glad that I read the reviews before purchasing so I knew what I'd be getting. I am 5'7" and 135 lbs and teeter between a size small and medium. This shirt jacket is excellent quality, thick, and warm. It is unlined, but very heavy. I ordered a size small and it is still extremely roomy. The fit is very broad in the shoulders... Read More, roomy in the arms, and boxy in the body. All of that said, it will be very nice to throw over any sweater or hoodie when you don't want to wear a full coat. It is definitely an oversized fit. The wool is not itchy and I am hoping the structure will relax a little with continued wear.

Beautiful material and way too boxy

I have been eyeing this jacket for a long time and when it went on sale, I was so excited to buy it. I read the reviews about how boxy the fit is but I often prefer an oversized fit for layering so I went for it. I am 5'5", about 180lbs and have a very curvy shape. I usually choose a size L, or XL for an extra comfy fit, but after reading... Read More others' reviews, I chose size M. The length, both arm and actual jacket, were totally fine. The material is something I want to live in for the rest of my life; soft, warm cozy, durable and beautiful. But the jacket made it look as though I was supposed to have football player's shoulder pads on in order to fill out the jacket (no exaggeration, and I played foot ball in high school). It was also snug on my hips when I buttoned the lowest button, but I am used to this happening so don't feel as though this is unique to this jacket. If I had chosen size L, this would have likely been okay. I am a farmer and I work outside year-round. I wanted this to be my early morning field walk jacket, or quick run outside to turn on/off irrigation and to wear to the farmers market all winter long. I have no doubt it would keep me cozy and warm but with the fit the way it is, I will be returning it.

Sturdier than I anticipate and

Sturdier than I anticipate and that's great because it will work well into the colder months. It's broad in the shoulders so if you're more petite up top I would probably recommend sizing down.

July 11, 2023

This could have been so good, but...

The overall quality of this jacket is very good. The material is thick, warm and very durable. However, the execution and sizing is off. I get that this is supposed to be oversized, as it should be. But the cut and proportions are just too unflattering and awkward to pull off being an "oversized" shirt jacket. I really wanted to keep this... Read More jacket, but I had to return it because I looked like I was drowning in it, even in a size small. Please make another version that is cut and sewn more appropriately.

Too big

Beautiful jacket but the fit is for a very broad shouldered woman. I look like I still have a hanger in the coat when I'm wearing it. It's a really unflattering cut, even if I were to size down.

Hi Robyn, we're sorry to hear that the Melton Wool Overshirt Jacket is not working out regarding fit. If you find the fit too bothersome, please feel free to begin a [return or complimentary exchange]( for a different size.

Fit was totally off

I had been looking at this and got it when it went in sale. This is one of those pieces that was somehow photographed to look really attractive on the model - jacket open, hands in pockets, and the sleeves folded up. On me this looked absolutely terrible - the shoulders dropped much too low and the sleeves were too long unless you fold them up like... Read More the photo. I bought a medium and a large and both looked absurd on me. I would say that I am average size in the shoulder area and that this seemed several sizes too big in the shoulders. The material was super thick and substantial which added to the weird fit of it since it wouldn't lay flat. Sent both of them back.

So warm, nice fit with right sizd

I am 6 ft tall and have been looking for a shacket style for so long but they're always so short on me and dont hit me right. This is more like a jacket instead of a shirt, it is super warm and really flattering. You just have to get the size right. I am usually a L in Patagonia jackets, I could size to a M but I find they are generally cut fo... Read Morer smaller frames and the arms are short so I size up to L. I also like having room to layer. I got a M in this and the reviews are correct, runs really large. You're fine to size down and even still be able to layer underneath. The wool is incredibly warm, not too itchy, the brown color is so nice! I am sooo glad I got this! I will get a lot of use out of this where I live. For 100% wool, completely worth it!

Details are a bit too oversized

I love wool jackets and wanted to love this so badly. It was really close to being perfect but I ultimately decided to return it because I found the design to be a bit too oversized. The fabric is so soft and I love the length and overall cut of the jacket, but I found the features of the jacket (mostly the front pocket) to be awkwardly large. Writ...

Soft, thick, and warm.

I got the brown jacket and I love it so much. Im about 170 lbs, wear size 12-14 in womens pants, and have an hourglass figure. I ordered a large but it felt too big for me so I exchanged it for a medium which fits great. Its snug around my wide hips if I button the bottommost button. I still love this jacket and prefer the medium to the large. It s... Read Moretill fits like an oversized jacket and is really cozy, soft, and warm. And for it being snug around the hips if I button it its still roomy enough to wear a hooded sweater underneath. Other buyers comment that the cut is boxy around the shoulders which is true but the garment softens with a few wears and will lay more smoothly over the shoulders. Overall, I am satisfied with this jacket and the exchange service Patagonia provided. I hope this review helps.

This is a serious coat

I have this great vintage woolwich shirt that is on its last legs, and I had hoped that this might be a replacement for that. It is unfortunately not in any way a shirt, but instead a very thick, very warm, nicely made jacket. I expect it would last generations. I bought it spur of the moment on sale, or else the price would have obviously made me ... Read Morerealize this wasn't going to be a shirt. While it wasn't what I was after, I decided to keep it because it is a great jacket. The fit is large and cozy. It might be too large, the arm holes are voluminous. But it layers like a dream, and doesn't restrict movement. We had record cold temps of -50 last weekend and I did farm chores in this layered over my down puff, and I was toasty warm. I would not say its flattering, but we live in Maine and flattering just isnt at the top of my priority list for winter outerwear. Amazingly I actually dont find it too bulky, you can drive in it, or grocery shop, and its a classy casual look with dresses etc, which my down puff just didn't offer. Im 5 ft 6 in, and an athletic 165lbs- straight, not curvy, definitely not a small. I bought a medium, most of my Patagonia is medium. I do wonder if a small might have looked better, but I didn't want to send it back and risk having the sleeves too short or have it be tight across the shoulders. If anyone From Patagonia is reading this- I would be so psyched to see a nice warm woolwich style wool button up SHIRT for women!

Super warm & cozy

I am somewhere between a small & medium size & I am glad ordered a small! The jacket is made from lovely soft wool. Not itchy at all! The length is perfect and the curved hem is very stylish. The only down side is the width of the shoulder seams. It feels badly engineered, too much space in the top of the sleeves makes it feel boxy. The sle... Read Moreeves are very wide which is great for layering. I very carefully cold washed on delicate, hoping it may soften the shoulders a little. (I had to translate the washing instructions as they weren't in English!) I layed it flat to dry on a towel & gently reshaped while damp. I feel that with time it will soften & hang a little better through the arms. Great layering piece, just needs a little fine tuning on the shoulders so the seam is more in line with the side of my shoulders rather than sticking out a few inches.

Super cozy!

This jacket is super cozy and warm with large comfortable pockets both inside the jacket and on the sides for my hands.

City Hiker

Soft but structured. Oversized but fitted. The brown works with an all-black outfit in the city or with a natural wool turtleneck in the woods. A lifelong jacket for three seasons.

Stylish shacket

I initially bought a large but swapped for medium which is still a relaxed fit and good for layering over a tee and jumper. Its warm and snug and I love it

December 23, 2022

Thick and warm

The jacket is definitely oversized, Im normally a small and could have gone with an extra small and it probably would still be somewhat oversized. I love the look though, very warm. Thick jacket

Lifelong Style and Quality

Through the woods, an outdoor market or bingeing Maine Cabin Masters. Versatility and comfort. Flattering length. Structured but soft to the touch. A deep brown that goes well with black or neutral layers. I will wear this everywhere. Even if I shouldn't.

Great quality

This is a very nice jacket. Luckily caught it on sale because the price point is steep- to be expected it is wool. It is thick and great quality. I am between a M/L in all Patagucci I ordered a M in this. It fits oversized like it says. I am 5ft 7in 165lbs. Only complaint is I feel like the arms are really big/wide. But if you layer under its fine.... Read More

High Quality & Oversized

I ordered this in an XL and it was too big. I exchanged for a L and it was still quite big even for an oversized fit. The quality of the garment is amazing but comes with a steep price tag. I may have kept it if I liked the pattern/style more but couldnt justify the cost per wear.
