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.

Perfect packable do it all cold weather coat

Love this coat! Love the material feel, canvass-like with soft down fill that makes it super packable. Perfect length, perfect pockets, and even though the sleeves are a bit long since I got an extra large and am only 5-5, it cinches enough that it works perfectly. Thanks Patagonia!

June 19, 2023

Sturdy and stylish outerwear

This will be my 'go-to' winter jacket. The cut is more fashionable than regular technical outerwear (not too long and not too form fitting) and the shell layer is incredibly tough/sturdy. Recent down jacket purchases from high-end comparable brands have ripped/failed within 5 years so hoping to this shell layer lasts without rips/puncture... Read Mores for closer to 10 years.

Amazing jacket 2

Jacket is amazing. It was sold out in L and Patagonia suggested that either L or LX would work for does. I would have preferred L but this works, especially when I will add a sweater under it!

Stylish and Cozy

I have received so many compliments on this jacket! It's very high quality and looks great for casual wear. It is super warm, so I will only be using this jacket in cooler months. The pockets are amazing. I love the option of the inside pocket and the zipper. Also, it's a plus that the hoodie is removable. Overall, such a great investment... Read More.

Super Cute and Super Warm

Bought this jacket for my daughter, a college student, and it is warm and cute! The length is a little shorter than other typical winter coats/jackets but enough to cover the upper body, and it makes her legs look longer.

Nice coat!

I love the green color with the yellow interior, I feel like a Girl Scout! :) Jacket is super nice and warm. Its also the perfect length for short folks

April 16, 2023


I purchased this jacket because both my girls have soccer practice and its been a rainy season in California. Its been amazing. Its kept me warm during school days, during late night soccer practices, the only issue I have is that it feels just a bit too short. If it were an inch longer it would be perfect.

April 2, 2023

Super warm and comfortable

I spent a long time looking at new jackets before finally going for it with this one. The jacket is super comfortable and it fits great. It kept me warm with recent 20 degree temperatures!

March 30, 2023


I love this jacket. Got it in my usual size (medium) and I think it fits great. Super flattering!! I get a lot of compliments on it:)

Very warm

Comfortable, warm jacket. I love the color and the deep pockets. Proud to own a jacket that is a Fair Trade certified, and made with recycled product.

it’s true to size so i got one size bigger as i like an oversized fit. perfect for winters in london only issue materials with fluffy texture (not sure how to describe) tend to stick but not a huge issue i feel so good in it and warm!

Very comfortable and warm

Got a size medium. I have a larger chest and broad shoulders, womens clothes tend to run small on my upper body and big on my lower body. I am 5foot 2inches and 130 pounds.

Patagonia Fails Tall Women

For years I bought Patagonia jackets and loved them but in the last 5 years I have found Patagonia fails athletic tall women. First, the coat is too short even though its a large and second, the shoulder/arm length is too small. The body of the coat is very large and not flattering.

Totally underrated.

I absolutely love this jacket, and am so glad that I bought it. I love the green color, and it is super warm without being overly bulky. The fit is great, and I feel like I have room for another layer without the jacket looking bulky. The biggest plus is the material. I have had multiple Bivy jackets and as I work in ag fencing, and am around lives... Read Moretock, I am pretty hard on things. I feel like This material will hold up much better and should be pretty hard to rip.

Comfortable and warm

I ordered my regular size. Plenty of rooms for layering but not baggy or bulky. It's comfortably warn in average northeastern winter. The teal blue is more vibrant and nicer than appeared in pictures

March 11, 2023

My favorite winter jacket

I purchased the green jacket and I like to size up on all my jackets to be able to layer. I'm glad I sized up, it fits really comfortable and I don't even have to layer up. It's a really nice color and I always get compliments when I wear it.

March 9, 2023

My perfect coat

I bought this coat to replace one I had for 10 years. I picked it because I like the cut and the light blue. I used the size guide and it recommended the small, but I wanted room to fit layers underneath. The medium is a perfect fit with or without the extra layers. I love the way it looks on me, and its so warm. I have nothing bad to say!

March 8, 2023

Really warm and as expected!

Have been loving this jacket! Really warm and love the pockets. Also always appreciate when hoods are detachable. Will be wearing this for a long time! I got a medium to have some room for thick clothes underneath and it runs true to size.

March 4, 2023

Love it

Im 5ft1, 115lbs and got a medium because xs and s were all sold out and I really wanted the darker green color.

Versatile, Stylish, & Warm

Great style, great fit (I got a large so it would be slightly oversized but my true size is medium), high quality materials, & very warm when I need it to be! Awesome jacket overall

The jacket i have been searching for

This jacket is seriously the jacket Ive been dreaming of. Its perfectly warm, has a flattering fit, and the material is good quality- if I snag myself on a tree branch Im confident this jacket wont rip- which I feel is hard to find nowadays! This is my first Patagonia product, long awaited- it was on sale and they ran out of my size so I took a ris... Read Morek and sized down- which is honestly for the best because it is quite bulky and I think a size s wouldve looked too boxy on me. An xs leaves room for a simple base layer. I do wish the exterior pockets had zippers, but there is an interior pocket that does which makes up for it. Im so so happy I took the leap and purchased the jacket, cant wait to wear it for any chilly day outing, be it my morning commute or a snowy hike.

March 1, 2023

I love this coat. Will be great for spring skiing but weather is still cold

Great construction and warm. I will be wearing this one anytime the weather is cool/cold. Thanks Patagonia for another well made coat.

Two thumbs up!

Patagonia Women's Downdrift Jacket what is a Valentine's Day gift for my wife she really loves this jacket. It keeps her warm on the coldest of days that we have in our mountains of northern New Mexico. She gives it two thumbs up.

Warm and Great for Travel

I purchased this coat for my daughter for traveling where the temperature was forecast to be single digits in the low and a high in the 20s.

Very warm water repellent

I got the wavy blue in M. Fits great, is super warm and not as puffy as you might expect. It is also water repellent, haven't worn it in heavy rain tho, it took on prolonged drizzle very well. Only thing is that the color isn't as greyish blue as it seems. Not that i mind it. Over-all very happy with it so far.

A Must Have

I love everything about this jacket!

February 24, 2023

Very happy with purchase

Decided to try this jacket since I was in need of a new warm coat and the sale and beautiful green color appealed to me. The reviews were also great. I have received many compliments on this jacket.

Can be warn in city or country, fits well with variety of styles. The only thing that has been the tiniest annoyance, but not worth not buying over, is that the texture of the fabric is such that fuzz/piling of other materials can get on it and seem a bit sticky to the fabric. Pulled the items off or used a lint roller, no problem. Would absolutely purchase again, especially for the sale price.

February 24, 2023

Very cute

I love this jacket! I was worried it would be too cropped, but it is not. The garden green color is very neutral looking (almost khaki-ish), which I love.

Attractive Color, Very Functional

Love the look of this coat and I got it during a GREAT sale! Couldn't be happier. The shade of green is very attractive.

Very warm and comfortable

I love this jacket so much. I got the green with mustard inside and it's such a great mountain-y color. The fit is very comfortable, it's for sure boxy, but like soft boxy- not awkward.

Cozy and stylish

Love this jacket for chilly, wet Seattle weather. Very warm, sheds water well, stylish. I love the double pocket design.

February 17, 2023

Perfect fit and style!

I love this jacket! The color is perfect (got it in green, is a bit brighter than in picture which I love). I bought a Medium, usually wear a Small but wanted to make sure I can add layers underneath.

Do Yourself a Favor

I had my eyes on this jacket for months and was so excited when it finally went on sale. I bought it immediately in medium and when it arrived, it was too large for me.

Warm, great fabric, but small pocket holes

I usually don;t like bulky jackets, but I love the fit of this one. It is just a bit snug, but the measurements for my body type are right on so I still have mobility on colder days.

Read Moredid like the pocket closures when hiking and in the snow because I had more confidence that if anything were in my pockets, it wasn't going to fall out!

Small Hood

I really like everything about this coat except the hood is way too small for my satisfaction. There is no depth to the hood and I dont have a large head.

Great for those on the shorter side!

As someone that is 5'0, it is next to impossible to find a jacket that fits my torso.

It is warm and insulated, and also protected me from the Seattle misty weather. The jacket zips on... Read More, so you can easily remove it if you don't need it. The only thing I would suggest for future production of this jacket is maybe adding some fabric over the hood zipper.

Otherwise, I would recommend this jacket to anyone who is looking for an upgraded, and very cute, jacket! I have the Sublime Green color and I get compliments every time I wear it out.

The tan color is so nice. The quality is definitely there and worth the price! It is comfortable and warm. The length of this crop jacket is good (not too short). Would love to buy another one in a different color down the road.

Super warm

I love the cropped oversized jacket look! This one is super warm and comes with an awesome hood. I will say that the ink black one is a lint magnet but the other colors are awesome! If you're looking for an oversized look and layering stick with your normal size if you're not go down a size.

I started a new school that does carpool in the mornings. It's been so cold in the mornings and this coat keeps me SO warm. We have also had a lot of afternoon carpools in the rain. I have to be outside for a half hour and this coat keeps me warm and dry and completely repeals the water.

GOOD FOR MY SHORT PEEPS! Size Up To Fit Sweaters Underneath!

I have bought and returned the jacket in a small and medium multiple times, and I have finally landed on a medium. I am 4' 11", 120 lbs., and I typically wear a small or x-small in most brands. But with Patagonia jackets, I get the Medium so I can layer things underneath. The small fits if I wear just a long sleeve underneath (which is al... Read Moreso what the model is wearing in these photos and video). But in reality, I will always wear a sweatshirt or sweater underneath a jacket in the fall and winter months, especially in New York City, but also in Northern Virginia, where I grew up. And if I don't, I'd prefer a jacket be oversized when I wear less layers underneath, than feel even a smidge too tight when I want to wear a second layer underneath. It's longer in length in the medium, but because the jacket is short, you still get the cropped look. PLEASE STOCK THE SUBLIME GREEN IN STORE SO PEOPLE KNOW WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE! Better yet, it would be nice to have one of each color to see what all the colors look like in store so we don't have to purchase it to find out.

December 20, 2022

the BEST!!!

As someone who gets cold really easily, this is the best purchase Ive made in a long time. It keeps me warm from the second I put it on until the moment I take it off. I got the forest green color, its so beautiful.

December 19, 2022

Warm & stylish

Great coat- keeps me very warm, the hood buttons up tight and stays on, and the colorways are interesting and cheerful. The sleeves are slightly too long on me, but other than that I'm super happy with this purchase.

December 18, 2022

Great city coat!

I got this coat in the 'Oar Tan' color and its really lovely! Great for wearing around the city, has held up really well in cold rain. It is VERY warm, so I have to be careful not to layer too much under it. Love the huge and comfy pockets.

December 18, 2022

New favorite coat!

Purchased the green / mustard color and absolutely love it. I'm usually a size S but sized up to a M so I could fit bulkier sweaters underneath and am so happy I did! The pockets and hood are the perfect size. It keeps you warm and the fabric feels very durable. Would 100% recommend!

December 18, 2022

Down and DWR

I love a shorter jacket and this downdrift hits right at the hips for me. It is a warm hooded down jacket and bonus it is water repellent. All around a great winter jacket. I would say it runs a little large but found that I liked the fit of the size large the best. The color options are awesome too!

December 10, 2022

Perfect puffer jacket! (Almost) LINT MAGNET

This would be the perfect puffer jacket, but I constantly have to use my lint roller on it because all the little fussys stick to it like theres no tomorrow. I do love that it has so many pockets in the front and that its so warm. The material is thick but it constantly looked dirty.

Hey Mary, thank you for the review. This sounds like a unique issue. The elasticated wrists are meant to help keep weather out, but we could see how they could potentially ride up with movement.

Updated classic

Really love the cut of this jacket in oar tan! Bought it for my daughter but might have to get one for myself. Jacket would be perfect for outdoor sports but it's more of an everyday winter jacket for my daughter on cold to very cold days.

Best jacket I have ever had!!!!

I got this jacket on a whim for a trip to Italy and Malta where the weather would range from low 30's to mid 50's with heavy rain and strongs winds, and let me tell you, this jacket perfomed! It kept me warm, dry, and I did not feel the wind. It is quite possibly the best jacket I have ever had, and I have had Canada Goose, Arcteryx and N... Read Moreorthface just to name a few! I was really blown away by the quality. Not to mention, traveling with this jacket was an absolute breeze! 6 trains, 4 planes, and 2 boats later, this is my favorute jacket ever! I am contemplating getting another one in a different color.

A warm hug

Another review said this coat was like a warm hug, and Im not sure if its placebo or not, but it really is like a warm hug! I am 5 ft 8 in and normally a small/medium in clothes. I tried this jacket on in store, and the small was small. The medium was okay, but this jacket is a little cropped, which is what I initially wanted, but the arms were sup... Read Moreer short for me (I have long limbs). The large was a perfect size, still a little cropped but long enough and super cozy.

Love it!

Bought this jacket for everyday use in London, keeps me warm and looks great! I thought I’d be in between S/M size-wise, but sized down and I’m glad I did that. It’s roomy enough on me to comfortably go over a sweater or even a t-shirt+sweater. I’m 5ft2 so this is a great length on me, overall I’m very happy with it and would recommend!

Beautiful casual jacket!

I wanted this jacket for

I wanted this jacket for a long time and finally was able to treat myself. It is warm, rugged, stylish- like you are wrapped in a cocoon. Great pockets and garden green color. Best of all is the way Patagonia treats you and stands behind their products.

November 15, 2022

so cute and warm but badly made!

I ordered this coat and within 1 week of very gentle wear, the pocket seam ripped on both pockets. I brought it to Patagonia and they returned it and sent me a new one, thinking it was just a defect on that specific coat. Within a day of wearing my new coat, the pocket seam ripped in the same place. Ive never spent this much money on a coat so Im v... Read Moreery disappointed. Everything else about the coat is great though! I just wish it felt better quality for the cost.

Super warm, true to size

I ordered up bc that is what was available (on sale) but there was no need. In addition, it is long enough. It seems like a very perfect coat. I am excited about the orange bc my 4 kids will be able to easily spot me on the slopes.

October 7, 2022

Really nice jacket

I bought a large so I could wear sweaters easily underneath. Great quality. Warm but not heavy. I bought the orange color and it is just as pictured.

October 6, 2022

Love it!

I was on the fence about this jacket. I live in Seattle so the weather doesn't get too cold to justify this purchase, but the color green SOLD me! Also some of the other reviews mentioned it being too short--I haven't come across that issue and agree with another review about how it covers the torso/hips but isn't supposed to go to y... Read Moreour knees. lol. I've gotten several compliments on the color and I love the mustard lining. In the end Patagonia's commitment to sustainability and re-usability was something I wanted to support. :D

October 6, 2022

Warm and goes with everything!

I needed a fall-winter jacket to wear on outdoor adventures and while hiking/camping and this was perfect! I got the small and was still able to layer underneath comfortably. I love the pockets in this coat and that it has a hood as well.

October 4, 2022

We'll see

Ordered in August so haven't had the chance to wear this cute jacket yet. But fit wise, I'm pleased....I have a long torso (and I'm tall, 5' 10") and worried the jacket would be too short. It's not. The orange color is fab. Seems to be solid construction.

September 21, 2022

I was concerned it would

I was concerned it would be too short (I’m 5’9) based on other reviews, but it fits perfectly at about hip length. Sized up so I could layer up if necessary, and fits just right. Sleeves go just past my wrists, but that’s what I prefer.

September 7, 2022

Runs large

The jacket is beautiful and great quality. However, it was huge on me. Will be returning and exchanging for an XS.

September 1, 2022

Very Nice

Great quality. Nice design. Love them

August 26, 2022

comfy and cozy. just a little small

I love the jacket very much! It's really well-made and I love the style. I bought the XL hoping for a little extra layering room. I can wear something under but the arms do get a bit snug. They aren't too short though so that is appreciated

August 25, 2022

Warm and cool!

I love the orange color, the look and the fit!! Perfect

August 11, 2022

Fits perfectly

Was worried about the fit since I'm 5'10" and medium-sized sleeves are usually too short for me but this fits perfectly. This jacket is made very well, cannot wait to wear it this winter in Colorado.

March 16, 2022

Super warm

I love this jacket and the orange color! I could've gotten an xs but size small fits good with some room to layer underneath for especially cold days in Chicago. For reference I'm 4'11 118 lbs

March 14, 2022

Love this jacket!

As I expected, I absolutely love this jacket! I was going to get a size small as thats what I fall under the size chart, but I figured it couldnt hurt to size up so I can definitely wear hoodies underneath without feeling too constricted. Im glad I did!

February 22, 2022

Cozy and adorable

I got the green. Received constant compliments which felt excessive know how comfortable and cozy it was just to wear. Good looking and super functional. The pockets took some getting used to with high top entries. The overall feel is just cozy and cute like a warm hug on freezing days.

February 20, 2022

Warmest, shortest coat I've ever had

I am 5.5 and 165 lbs. Typically, I wear a size 12 or XL. I bought the XL and if they offered a XXL I would have gotten it instead. This coat is very warm, but it is a bit tight in the upper arms and belly and if it was made just two inches longer it would be perfect. I am not satisfied with the length. Every garment (fleece, sweatshirt) that I wear... Read More underneath the coat sticks out about 2 inches. What a bummer. Patagonia is so close with this one. I bought the green color and I love that color. So unique.

Hi Maureen, thank you for taking the time to share these details. If that length isn't working for you please keep in mind we'll be happy to help you [return]( it.

Cozy and warm

I love this coat. Very warm, but not too heavy. I love the double pockets, so I can slip my hands in to keep them warm, but also can make sure my belongings are secure. I also love the detachable hood, and the inside is very soft! All the good things to say :)

February 8, 2022

Just right!

I purchased the green color and it is so pretty in person! From the photos i knew it would be a shorter length coat and it turned out to be just right.

I was a little nervous after some of the negative reviews, but this is one of the best coats I've ever bought!

Love this jacket

I bought this at a shop in person and tried on a small because that is all they had left. However I am typically an XS in patagonia clothing. That said it is very roomy and I did not think it would work out for me but found after cinching up the sides with internal pull cords the fit is fine and I have plenty of room in the shoulders, back and ches... Read Moret for a thick sweater etc. I appreciate the durable outer material and the overall design is modern, boxy, slightly cropped (even for a short person like myself) and it is simply perfect with a quietly unique quality about it. I really didnt think I would walk out with this jacket but the design, quality and beautiful colors really drew me in. Well done

February 2, 2022

Super warm & cozy

I purchased the green downdrift jacket to wear in the early cold mornings before and after open water swimming and surfing, to wear when camping or out in cold weather. I love this jacket! It's stylish, warm and very comfortable. I've received several compliments on the jacket.

January 30, 2022

Winter/storm warm... a good working jacket.

Good tough jacket for winter walking, outdoor working, snow sports. Like tougher fabric-like exterior... good wind block... does pick up dog hair, but doesn't hang onto it for long. Snaps over zipper are appreciated. Room for layering fleece inside. Collar fit keeps wind out. Double pockets more useful than I expected. Nice color, too. ONLY WI...

Perfectly bright cozy jacket

I ordered this jacket for Washington winter casual wear. I absolutely love it. From the colder to more mild days its perfectly cozy. I love the zip off hood. The orange color was true to the photo.

Beautiful jacket

So happy with this jacket. The quality is really good. I’m short so it sits at just the right spot for me, but if your taller be aware it is a short length. Had lots of comments on it already

100% satisfied.

I am a day-hiker and needed a coat that would be good for that and casual wear. Though it is not the most technical jacket out there, it is exactly what I needed. VERY warm, windbreaking. Really is moisture resistant. I knwo some reviews noted how short this jacket is, but it fits normal and perfect for my short torso, as I am 51. The color is amaz...

Warm n cozy

Took this camping in 20 degree weather. It kept me warm and cozy. I pretty much lived in this while I was in the desert.

January 8, 2022

Great coat

If you are a petite woman looking for a warm casual winter coat, this is a great option. The body length fits perfectly for me (just slightly under 5ft tall) and even the arm length works really well. Just note that this coat does have some bulk to it, which I don't mind at all (kept me comfy warm). I've been on the hunt for a coat that f... Read Moreits this well - thank you Patagonia!

I love the shorter length for getting in/out of the car, and I really love that there are snaps AND a zipper. Jacket is plenty warm and I like that the hood is removable.

Love this jacket!

I got this to wear for casual/everyday and walking the dog in the winter. Its fantastic! Its thick and warm. I also love the double pockets on each side one with the flap over to keep things dry and secure and one you can easily slide your phone or your hands into. And now my college-age daughter has taken it, so we probably need another one. The o... Read Morerange color is nice bright but not blaze orange.

Brilliant 'short style' jacket

The Ws Downdrift is a 'short' style jacket which is exactly what I needed as longer length jackets do not close around my hips unless I size up. With this jacket I get a fitted feel without restriction, it keeps the wind off my upper body well. The hood is great for warmth, but when using the snap enclosures I can't fit a bulky scarf... Read More underneath (a slimmer scarf/ buff works better).

December 22, 2021

Lightest softest jacket

It’s like wearing a cloud, sooo good! The only mini thing I wished it had was longer sleeves as i have very long limbs

December 4, 2021


Its warm but runs short. Im returning it. Probably good for the slopes but not for commuting around DC. Keeping my other jacket from you guys.

November 24, 2021

Perfect for Bay Area casual winter wear

Super cozy - I even wear it around the house. Its like getting a warm hug. :) And I like the cropped length although it definitely means its just for casual winter wear and not truly for skiing or being out in real weather.

November 22, 2021


I really like this jacket. Its a bit short and boxy, but not too short. I would prefer if it were just a bit longer. I wear it every time I hike on my property, because the orange color will keep me from getting shot now that its hunting season. Its warmer than my down sweaters, and a bit heavier.

November 20, 2021

Cute and Warm!

I love that Patagonia tried something new here with a modern fit! Reminds me of the Silent Down jacket. It's not going to be a hit with Down Sweater fans necessarily, as it doesn't hug the body and the length is intentionally at your waistband - they have plenty of other options of more classic longer pieces. BUT for those who love having... Read More a shorter length jacket to style with modern fitting pants, this jacket is amazing + very flattering. Plus warm + functional. I can layer underneath, though nothing super bulky.

September 30, 2021

Too short, unfortunately

Really wanted to love this jacket but I dont think I will be able to keep it. The length is described as hip length, but the hem sits at the very top of my hips. This almost makes its feel like a crop top jacket! My go to Better Sweater full-zip is longer than this jacket which just seems like a miss for Patagonia. This jacket went a little too far... Read More into style instead of practical. I dont want to be stuck having to wear high waisted jeans every time i wear this out. Further Im worried it wont leave me warm enough on windy days. If this jacket was just an inch or 2 longer it would be perfect.

I've been waiting for the perfect down jacket in this color for years. So warm, fits perfectly.
