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.

Despite being warm, Patagonia coats are EASILY damaged. The fluffy top layer of fabric is very thin and easily tears (I have a long rip across the lower back). The long, long zipper often catches and snags, and when I washed my coat one time, the zipper broke completely. I can't review the exact coat I own because it is no longer shown on the ... Read Morewebsite, but it resembles this one (without the hood). These problems would be tolerable except that they so contradict the advertising that it is annoying to hear praise of durability.
Just not warm enough
I needed to replace by well worn 7-8 year old winter jacket ( different brand).. I found this coat in a Patagonia Store in Maine. ( I live in NH). I loved the way it looks on me, very slimming. While I am petite, I also loved the length just above me knees. I never felt cold in my old down jacket so I figured since this was also made of down, I wou... Read Moreld have a similar experience. However, I wore it on a 40-45 degree windy winter day and found myself cold especially in the arms. On a non-windy below 20 day I was even colder. The arms were not as well puffed with down as the body of the coat so I figured maybe it was defect. I reached out to customer service and they did send me a new one but it was the same. Super sad to be returning it because I truely loved the way it looked on me.

Hi Alyssa, thanks for taking the time to write a review. We're sorry to hear that the Down With It Parka isn't providing enough warmth during colder conditions. The Down With It is a wonderful option for milder days, but not the best on a windy, 20 below day. For colder, windier days we recommend taking a look at the [Women's Downdrift Parka](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-downdrift-parka/20605.html?dwvar_20605_color=SMDB&cgid=root). It's amazingly warm and a great pick for all winter conditions and prolonged outdoor exposure.
My new favorite winter coat
I bought this coat based on a recommendation from my sister-in-law. I was shocked by how warm, cozy and flattering it was! It truly combines all my wishes for a warm, nice fitting, ethically made and affordable coat. I had to part with my 7-year-old Tres Parka after outgrowing it, and haven't been able to find a substitute that fits me well (I... Read More fall between a Patagonia S and M) until now. I have gotten so much use out of this coat in the recent weeks and can also say that it provides decent protection from wind and the collar buttons up for ultimate warmth. If I could make one suggestion for improvement, it would be to make the hip pockets slightly larger. Other than that it is true perfection. For reference I have larger shoulders/smaller waist/wider hips, 64 inches tall, 130lbs, and small allows for light layers underneath without feeling restrictive.
Perfect Winter Coat
I absolutely love this coat! It is super warm and great for Minnesota winters without being overly bulky. Its a tad longer than I would maybe want but that also makes it nice to sit in. The pockets are nice and deep including the hidden inside pocket. I am super happy with this coat!
Super warm but ripped
I was obsessed with this jacket until it ripped in the armpit after the first month. Very disappointing for what I paid!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review Megan! We are also incredibly sorry to hear how quickly your parka tore. We will be reaching out privately to make sure you are taken care of.
Very Warm and Versatile Parka
I purchased this almost weightless down parka in black and really love it. I live in a tropical climate and get cold very easily. It kept me warm and comfortable in the snow and in temps ranging from 5-35 degrees with colder wind chill factor. It easily folds into a small size easy for packing. The longer length was just what I wanted and falls abo... Read Moreve my knees to cover a suit jacket or dress. I love the inside chest pocket and side pockets with zippers. I am really happy with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone looking for a lightweight comfortable super warm coat that travels well. Its now a great staple in my closet.
Very comfortable and warm
So, I initially bought one size too big and was able to easily exchange for the XL and it fits perfectly. Its very well made, great length and the pockets - including inside pocket- are for me in the perfect spots. It hasnt been terribly cold this winter, but this definitely keeps me warm on the cold days so far. I love it!
My favorite Patagonia purchase ever!
I have several pieces from Patagonia, but was in need of something long to cover more of my legs and butt. This thing was exactly what I wanted, kept me cozy in below freezing temperatures and super comfortable! Falls just above my knee. Super super happy with this purchase.
2 time winner
I'm pretty small, so many things are hit & miss. This is a hit!! Bought this in dark green about 3 years ago. Fit, warmth, color - all work. Great coat! Jumped at this sale! The green one could use a washing (cuffs, pockets), but I'm afraid to take the chance. HELP!
I bought this coat for
I bought this coat for a friend who lost her business and house .. didn't have a coat for the cold winter weather... She absolutely loves the coat. Warm, perfect fit, the removable hood changes the look when not needed,,, the quality is great, workmanship is perfect... couldn't ask for a better product .
Super Warm, Well-designed and constructed
Great design, particularly the snaps at the bottom sides of the coat - keep closed for more warmth, open for more room to stretch legs when walking. Great color (many compliments!) Very warm, allows a layer underneath the coat, and not heavy or bulky. (Also great customer service in the store! Very patient, knowledgeable, and helpful! Thank you!)
Color selection is terrible
I like this jacket and have had a down with it parka for many years now. Mine is worn out and I wanted a new one. I ordered this in the red - the color is just drab. I hate Patagonia's red/brown color theme this year - some of us like bright colors! I wish they had their down parkas in better color selections. They are all just navy/black/gray... Read More/red. Bring purple and the bright colors back! So no go for me. I will have to wait to replace mine until they do a better job with colors. Also - Patagonia - do a better job waterproofing this jacket. It's a great jacket, but the second there is wet snow, it soaks right through - which is awful!!
Response from PatagoniaFebruary 17, 2023
Thank you so much for your feedback on our color options, we truly appreciate it! Please rest assured that we will make sure to pass this along to our Product Team so they are aware of the want/need for brighter colors. As for the waterproofness of this parka, sadly this parka is not waterproof but it is water resistant. That being said, water will get through the membrane if there is prolonged moisture. A good way to keep this item water resistant is to machine wash in cold water with light detergent and then tumble dry on low heat.
Warm n Cozy
I really like this parka! It fits well and keeps me warm walking around town in 10 degree weather. Although the sizing chart suggested a M I got a small because I have another S size Patagonia nanopuff that fits well and the down with it parka fits perfectly. The lining is soft and the hardware feels like it will last a long time. The hood is so ni... Read Morece!
Warm but stains horribly
I purchased this coat in 2019. It was held up relatively well tho the down has settled quite a bit and is flat especially around the shoulders. While I love the warmth what really bothers me about this coat is that it stains really easily. I wash it probably monthly as a result which I don't do for any other coat. The coat gets noticeable stai... Read Morens (think oily looking) around the neck, pockets, sleeve openings and armpits (and I am not especially sweaty!). If you even drop water on it, it leaves water marks until the next wash. I have the same experience with a vest in the same material. I wouldn't buy anything with outer this material again.
Response from PatagoniaFebruary 17, 2023
Hi Jo! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear about the disapointment with the material. We're disappointed to hear how badly it's staining. We recommend machine washing on cold with a gentle detergent and tumble drying on low. If that stains don't seem to come out you're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Simply too small
Despite following the fit chart this coat is way too small and will be returned.
Response from PatagoniaFebruary 17, 2023
We're sorry to hear the fit was too small for you, and we are sharing the feedback about the chart. Since this parka is a Slim fit you might prefer one of our [Regular or Relaxed fit parkas](https://www.patagonia.com/shop/womens-parkas-coats?prefn1=features&prefv1=down-insulation%7Csynthetic-insulation&prefn2=fit&prefv2=regular%7Crelaxed).
Perfect (for me) parka
I bought this with plans to use it when we travel to colder areas, but its been cold enough in Phoenix lately that I've been able to wear it many mornings already. It keeps me warm when it is only 32 out (the coldest temp I have been able to test it in) and I'm still comfortable at 50. I am confident I will be able to bundle up and stay w...

Lovely Color, but...
5'7', 133 lbs. 36-29-37. slim build. Beautiful steel blue grey color. The hood detaches, which is so versatile. Nice length and flannel lined pockets. Hood fit well. Cut small through the shoulders and chest. At 650 fill, still didn't keep me warm, esp. in the arms. No warm draft cuffs either. Disappointed for the price, even on sale... Read More. In my opinion, Patagonia often struggles with technical performance vs. style. Just make one coat that does it all-sustainable, please.

We're sorry this parka didn't hit all the marks for you, Amy, and we're glad to see you're returning it, since we want you to be happy with everything you get from us! Thank you for your feedback.
Love this parka!
I've been wanting a new parka to replace my old one which happened to be Calvin Klein but extremely warm but is now dated. I have a couple Patagonia pullovers and absolutely love them because they are so warm. I decided to go with the down with it parka and Navy Blue is my favorite color so thats what I chose. The coat is beautiful in Navy!! I... Read More went back and forth deciding on a size. It was between Sm and Med. I am 5 ft 6in and 134 lbs with an athletic build. I ordered Medium after reading hundreds of reviews and I believe it was the right choice. I usually wear layers underneath and I think the small would have been too tight across the shoulders with a sweatshirt or sweater underneath. I usually have buyers remorse as soon as hit the place order button when I buy something expensive for myself. I am in love with this coat and will wear it for years to come. Worth every penny. Treat yourself!!
Warm, long for petites
Warm coat for typical new England winters. Its super light and the hood is warm and cozy. Recycled down was a draw- down is not usually an option for me due to animal welfare. I am 5-1 and 105 pounds, typically XXS in Patagonia. The XS allows me to wear a big/thick sweatshirt underneath. Even though it is a bit big the cut is flattering except for ... Read Moreone thing- it is so long, to the bottom of my knees. Not what I was looking for but the coat is perfect in every other way.
Response from PatagoniaFebruary 15, 2023
Since our Down With It Parka has a slim fit design, this may lend itself well to layering when you normally wear an XXS. Thank you for taking the time to send us a valuable review!
Best In Class
I have Patagonia jackets in all colours, weights and sizes, with hoods or not. Living in Southern California we experience varying degrees of inclement weather, morning to evening, and this jacket protects me from wind, rain, and the bitter cold. Love it! Thank you Patagonia!
Ive been eyeing this parka for a while and with my birthday coming up, thought this was the perfect excuse to buy it for myself. I like to layer so I chose the medium. Its nice and long and very warm. The hood is large comes down well over my hats. I have enough black coats in my closet so I picked up the navy and its gorgeous. I just am in love!!
Warmest coat I've ever had
I live in California, but spend a lot of time in the chilly Northeast. My beloved Nano Puffs haven't fended off that chill as much as I've wished, so I took the plunge and bought this Down with It parka. It's an astonishing coat. It keeps me warm, even in high velocity cold winds. The side pockets are deep and fleece lined, and there... Read More's a handy inside pocket for a wallet and phone. The length is just below knee length, so knee-high boots keep me even warmer. Chose the Sequoia Red color, which is lovely. All around, am completely satisfied with this parka.
Significantly warmer than any other coat I own
I am finally warm in the winter! The hood is generously fit so it makes a difference in the wind. The fabric is very high quality. I was slightly disappointed when the interior stitching of the pocket came unstitched, but it was a simple fix that you can't see from the outside of the coat. I will buy from Patagonia again.

Hi Sara, thank you for writing this review! Please also keep in mind that you can return anything where stitching comes apart, or we will be happy to [repair](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it for free!
The best warm and fashionable looking jacket for the cold winter.
I already own 2 down with it jackets. I was amazed with the warmth and cuteness of them, that I ended getting this down with-it parka. This parka is super warm and fashionable looking. Can wear a sweater or light top for layers, depending on the weather. Easy to maintain, just wash cold and tumble dry. If not fully dried, let it dry overnight and i... Read Moret dries. I recommend others to get this parka. No regrets. Thank you, Patagonia, and the excellent C.S. agents.
Not for curvy figures
I wanted to love this coat, the length was perfect and I liked the style. The small fit at the top but was really tight around my hips. I tried the medium and it was a little large at the top but still snug at the hips. Had to return them both.
Response from PatagoniaFebruary 8, 2023
We're sorry to hear this design was disappointing.

My favorite jacket!
I was looking for a winter jacket and this one met all my requirements. Warmth, fit and length! I am 5' 0" and this jacket fits just a tad below the knee.

Constant zipper problem, not Patagonia quality
This jacket does not live up to the price and name. It looks warm but it is not as warm as it should be for the thickness/bulkiness of it. I have lighter Patagonia rain or short fleece-lined parkas warmer than this, which appears as if it should be a snow coat. Simple but effective features are missing like a pull cord to tighten and secure the hoo... Read Mored in the wind or elastic around the sleeve cuffs. The most shocking and disappointing thing: the zipper is poor quality tracking or faulty, so that 2/5 times I am trying to zip up, it catches and won't budge. I am not pulling roughly and I have not worn this jacket so much that it should be having issues already. Definitely skip and research a better winter coat for this price.

I really liked the parka. I followed the instructions to find the right fit and unfortunately it turned out way too long it looked like a long dress on me. It was also to big. I would recommend it to a taller friend.

Happy with coat
I'm glad to have this coat, which is light, warm and has useful pockets and two-way zipper. It falls to the bottom of my knees and has been warm enough for our coldest days so far this year. The sleeves are a little long but that's not a problem. I was concerned about the "slim fit" but I have other Patagonia XXL items and this ... Read Morewas fine. I can wear a pile jacket underneath with no problem. My only, minor, complaint is that the hood is noisy -- the nylon brushing against hair or a hat makes a fair amount of noise. The collar is lined with a softer fabric and I wish the hood had been as well.
I was looking for a coat that was longer and would keep me warm in the New Hampshire winters. This coat does not disappoint. Its lightweight but substantial at the same time. You can feel the quality of the coat when you slip it on. I did my homework and read many reviews and was glad I ended up with this coat. Great job Patagonia!
The coat is attractive. I
The coat is attractive. I bought a M. I am 5.9 1/4 feet tall and weigh 155lbs. I wear M or L depending on the item. The M is a little tight in the shoulder area when I raise my arms. However, the overall fit is good. A large in this brand is usually too big. I am keeping it and enjoy wearing it.
Fits Juuuuuust Right
This coat was so worth the money. It is EXTREMELY warm and I have not had any issues with feathers coming out of it like you get with cheaper, non-Patagonia coats.

Women's Down With It Parka
This is a lovely styled young looking coat. It is not as warm as I would have liked. However, with warmth often comes weight, and I did not want a heavy coat. The hood fits very nicely as does the coat. Perhaps, having another inside pocket would be nice. A very nice coat! Thanks!
Not quite as warm as I hoped.
This is a very nice coat, but I was hoping for something to keep me really toasty in the coldest New England weather, and so far I feel a little bit chilled in the low-mid 30s even with layers (I expected to feel completely warm and toasty). In general, it's a nice coat and very flattering. It seems well-constructed and the pockets are wonderf... Read Moreully warm. It does run a bit snug though, so I do wish I'd sized up to allow for a bit more room with layers. I will likely seek out a different coat next year, unfortunately. I've got a down coat from a different brand that is shorter in length, but somehow feels warmer than this one, which is disappointing.
I love the long lines of this coat & the big hood. I ordered it one fall evening sitting at a football game freezing my rear end off. The length keeps my things & rear warm. Im 5 ft 7 & 170 lbs. I got the XL so I could wear sweaters underneath. Its perfect & still has a slimming effect due to the cut. Absolutely love it!!
I bought this coat to replace a similar one I had had for 10 years. I was nervous this wouldnt be warm enough for Minnesota winters as it doesnt have the outer shell Im used to on a down coat.

My best investment
I've had this jacket for 2 winters already and just unpacked it for my 3rd, washed it and its still like new so I felt compelled to write a review. This is the perfect winter jacket for me. definitely an investment piece as more than I would normally spend but worth it. its so warm and cosy. Had lots of compliments about it too.
Perfect length, great fit, so warm!
I live in the mountains in Colorado and the temps and wind can be brutal! This is the perfect coat for these gnarly conditions. Even in 20 below temps out hiking my dogs its seriously warm! The only reason I didnt give it 5 stars was on the last one I owned, I had replace several snaps multiple times. Just got the newest version and the hardware is... Read More different now.
Not good fabric, Great warmth
I have to give this parka a 3 star review due to the durability of the fabric. I have it in a lighter color and unfortunately the coat will get water stains. I have washed my parka and followed the instructions and the water stains will not come off. Also, there is like a darkened-patina around the wrists and stuff that is due to regular, movement.... Read More I live in NE and having a coat that is visibly stained from the snow is not good. The parka keeps me warm and cozy but it looks filthy so now its just for the house. Not worth the price due to the fact that it looks gross with all these water stains all over it.

Great-IF back snaps did not keep popping off
First, I am 5 11 and 140. I love this coat because its warm without being overly bulky. Detachable hood (no fur) is perfect! Sleeves are actually long enough for my gorilla length arms. However, the snaps on the sides/back constantly break. I purchased this coat very late 2020. Sent it for repair February 2021. Broke as soon as I wore it again!!!! ...

Very warm and light coat.I
Very warm and light coat.I originally ordered size L which fitted very well but was little tight around midsection. With heavy heart I changed for XL which is loose and not so fitted but more comphortable with closing zipper and movement I regret I gained so much weight ! Fitted coat is much better looking ! Ověřil i am verz Happy with the purchase... Read More and Věry quick delivery!
Love the style
This is a very flattering jacket, it just runs small. Its a lot more fitted than expected but thats good so its not puffy. It would be warm enough for a typical New England winter. I like that it doesn't have fake fur so the hood fits well and close to skin. Bought the red, great color.
