LOVE the Jackson(s)!
Last year in the Spring I traded in my 11 year old Patagonia parka for the Jackson Glacier Parka. It was LIFE CHANGING. When it was freezing cold in Minnesota, I was no longer afraid to venture out with my new coat. I love the storm cuff sleeves to keep warmth in, the hood, everything. Even if it is 10ish F out, I can just wear my R1 Daily Bottoms ... Read Moreunderneath, no need for tons of long underwear. BEST COAT EVER! So this Spring I needed to replace my 10 year old shorter Patagonia 'ski' coat that I used on less frigid days, or when I need to have more freedom for my legs, I new exactly the coat I wanted ~ the shorter version of my Jackson Glacier Parka. I traded in my decades old Patagonia ski jacket and another Patagonia coat and got this coat half price plus the trade-in discount; an amazing deal! My new Jackson Glacier Jacket did not disappoint. I have already used it a lot this Spring and know I will use it a lot next winter, especially at our cabin doing winter activities. My only thing with this coat is it can be a bit snug around the hips/bum as it is a slimmer fit and I am a slightly curvy woman. But it hasn't been riding up or really bugging me at all. Bonus, this is a nice enough jacket to wear to work so I don't need multiple winter coats.
Warm cozy, water resistant puffy!
I bought a size medium at first and realized it was WAY too small. All of my other Patagonia pieces are medium, but this one runs really small. Its great for snow and when iitsbelow 40 and drizzling (you want to be warm and dry without having to just wear a bunch of layers under a rain coat).
Perfect Cold Weather Protection
I'm from Florida and the cold is not my favorite. I recently bought this jacket to replace an old one that didn't fit anymore. It came right in time for a trip to NYC. It was comfy and warm trekking through the city. It repelled the bit of snow we got and it fit comfortably over another sweater and multiple layers. Highly recommend this j...

Perfect for a cold city
Chicago is well known as Windy City, winter is cold here but with this jacket you don't feel it at all. I used North Face jackets for everyday, I was afraid to change to a different brand thinking no one can compare to their coats but I was wrong. I'm very happy with this coat, I recommend 100%.
Love this jacket. Ive been searching for a warm jacket for Wisconsin and Colorado winters to alpine ski as well as walking in the woods and just general winter warmth. This jacket is awesome. True to size. Nice color. Hood is padded as well for warmth. Fits under my buttocks for driving to keep warm. Great pockets with zippers. No apron attached fo...

Excellent size, excellent warmth
At 5'3, I've struggled with Patagonia's coats being ill-fitting in length and arm length, but this coat is perfect. It is amazingly warm too! The hood is well constructed and fits great when up. Only issue is that when it's down / not worn, the front neck zip part doesn't fit very well and kinda digs in if it's zipped ... Read Moreall the way up.
Not warm enough
The jacket is too lightweight and not warm enough.
Response from PatagoniaFebruary 22, 2023
Hey Ana, thanks for your review. We're sorry to hear that it's not working out with this jacket. We all live in different conditions and temperature ranges, and have our own personal abilities to retain warmth; because of this, what might work for some people will not work for others, and it sounds like you're on the latter end of the spectrum. We'd be happy to have a conversation to see what it is you're looking for and provide an alternative to this jacket. To proceed with this conversation, please reach out to our [customer service team](https://help.patagonia.com/s/?_gl=1*1jow689*_ga*MTE3MzgxOTU4OS4xNjQ3NTMxMTc0*_ga_1SYPSJZYJ5*MTY3NzA4Nzk4NS41NjYuMS4xNjc3MDg3OTkxLjAuMC4w).
Expensive and any dust sticks

Hi Uma, thank you for taking the time to submit this review; we appreciate this feedback. If a lint roller doesn't remove enough dust from your jacket or if it's too inconvenient you are always welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it. Please let us know if we can be of any help!
Super warm and high quality
I love this jacket! Bought this for Colorado winters and it's held up great for the past 2 years. It is definitely more heavy-duty, so if you're looking for something more casual to wear around the city, I'd recommend the silent down jacket instead. Overall this jacket holds up great, has fleece-lined pockets that keep me super warm,... Read More and it's totally waterproof.
Body style is nice, very warm, really nice color, weird hood. Strange and uncomfortable hood shape is disappointing.

The Perfect Winter Jacket
I live in Chicago and this jacket keeps you WARM, not only from the cold temps but from the wind. I recently took this jacket on a winter trip to Iceland, and it was able to repel the arctic winds and freezing rain for hours. You will not regret buying this jacket!
I really wanted to like this jacket. I live in the north east and needed a warm coat. I am very active and I didn't feel like this jacket would stand up. The zipper already felt like it was failing. The fit was small too. I always wear a small and this wouldn't allow for layering underneath. For the price tag I would have expected more.
Response from PatagoniaJanuary 9, 2023
We're sorry to hear the fit and features of this jacket were disappointing. We appreciate your feedback and we're glad that you were able to return it.

Best Jacket I Own!
I was looking for a nice jacket that would keep me warm in the winter time. I love the fit and I love that it has a hood that actually covers my head and doesn't fall off in windy conditions. I usually wear it with a light crewneck underneath. I would 100% recommend to everyone. I'm hoping this jacket will last me 8 years or more since my... Read More past Patagonia purchases have!
Ws Jackson Glacier Jacket for women size XS
Beautiful and high quality jacket. It is impressively cozy, keeps you warm and wind-blocking guaranteed. The Handwarmer Pockets are absolutely fantastic! Not to mention the Internal Zip Pocket. I don’t find the hood flattering but this jacket is a great value. I highly recommend it.
Very warm and flattering!
I absolutely love this jacket! It's perfect for colder days when my Patagonia Down Sweater just isn't cutting it. I feel like this jacket is true to size. I am 5'5 and weigh 140 lbs and usually buy a small in Patagonia. This jacket was no different. If you want to layer up underneath it, I would order a size larger. But I saw no need...

Perfection for winter!
After purchasing a Patagonia jacket for my 5yo (NYC winters, for reference), I was impressed enough to want one for myself. Best winter coat purchase of my life. Perfect fit, I can throw this over a t-shirt and not feel a lick of cold, it's not bulky, it looks both seasonally appropriate and modern with every kind of outfit -- and you just can...

This will definitely keep you warm and toasty! Got this rather than the longer parkas because Im shorter (52) and approx 130lbs. It fits decent but the hood that goes over my head is still too long so instead of wrapping around my head snug it sits a good 2-3inches above it. However, its immediately warming and quite comfortable. Bought for a trip ... Read Moreto Alaska in December and Im very happy with this purchase. I would recommend you PLEASE MAKE MORE EARTHY COLORS. the mens one, which I purchased for my husband, has a gorgeous brown color and I absolutely love that color and Im devastated he got to wear that color and not me.

I love this jacket!!
I'm gonna start off by saying that I rarely buy coats over $200, so this was a big step for me. I'm a north face/marmont light puffer coat kind of girl. Anyway, those weren't cutting it anymore and I wanted to try something new. After reading countless reviews I decided on the Jackson Glacier jacket. Absolutely love it. I get so many... Read More compliments on it. I use it for downhill skiing and everyday wear. It's so warm, and if it's extra cold that day I can fit a sweatshirt underneath to add another layer. I am 5'5, 125 lbs, and got a size medium in the smolder blue. It fits like a glove, with the arms at the perfect length in the center of my palm, and the jacket itself falls right in the middle of my butt. If it's raining, this jacket will get soaked and your core will be cold. But if it's snowing, you will be fine. It is also 100% worth the money. I have had this jacket for 2 years and it still looks brand new despite me wearing it through 2 winters and numerous falls on the ski mountain. If you are looking for a basic, warm jacket that is both stylish and practical, this jacket is for you. I cannot recommend it enough and I will be buying it in black.
Decent warmth + design
The jacket is stylish and a warmer than both the Down Sweater and the Down With It jacket, but the overall warmth wasn't sufficient for my needs. I exchanged it for the Glacier Parka in Small, the longer version of this jacket, to benefit from the additional coverage, larger hand-warmer pockets, and improved hood fit. The pockets on the XS Gla... Read Morecier Jacket I purchased felt too small, even though I have slender hands. The hood was too tight to wear a cap or ponytail underneath, which is frustrating because I typically wear my hair up while outdoors on walks or errands. Instead of trying a larger size, I exchanged for the Parka because I couldn't justify keeping this jacket at this price point as it is too similar to my other down jackets without delivering what I needed. It is beautiful and I will consider it in the future, possibly in a larger size, or if the pockets and hood are improved. It feels snug, so you may consider sizing up if you plan to wear with layers.
Warmest jacket ever
This coat is the warmest jacket Ive ever owned. It fits true to size. Im bigger in the chest area so it hugs me a little tighter there but nothing uncomfortable. Nothing gets through this jacket! I put the hood up and I zip it up and the elements outside just disappear. It kept me warm and dry while I was outside walking my dog in near blizzard con... Read Moreditions. I Lesly couldnt feel any the wind or the 10 degree temps outside. This jacket is worth every penny.
Life Saving Warm
Move to Connecticut from southern California and this jacket is literally a life safer as it gets deadly cold in CT. Wanted to buy your nano puff mitts but you are out of stock in my size. How can a company like yours be out of stock in the season you need mitts?
I like the style of this jacket. It is pretty bulky and I feel like the stay puft marshmallow in it but overall I like the silhouette. I use it to stay warm so it definitely does its job. If it was a little less bulky, it would be perfect. I tried both small and medium in this coat, I am petite with a size C chest and found the small to be true to ... Read Moresize.

Love this Jacket!
The jacket is exactly what I was looking for. It keeps me warm while being lightweight and breathable. It's very well-made and stylish. I've tested it on a night hike in the White Mountains of NH and in the windy streets of Boston and it didn't disappoint. Highly recommend!
Extremely warm and stylish
I love this parka! It is extremely warm and fits me perfectly! It is not as bulky as some I tried on, but it has kept me toasty for several hours at 15 degrees. I have not worn it in the rain yet, so I can’t comment on it’s water-resistance. It is not a technical jacket, nor would I use it to chop firewood, but it is perfect for walking dogs and ca... Read Moresual wear around town. I do wish it had a 2-way zipper as it bunches up a bit when driving, and I also would have liked stoppers on the elastic cord that keeps the front of the hood snug. But I would trade those inconveniences for warmth and fit any day.
I have now been wearing this jacket for a week and it’s extremely warm! I’m looking forward to wearing it when the temperature decreases; right now it’s hovering around 20° or so in PA, and I’m almost too warm! Winter is just starting so I know I’ll have lots of time to get out in the snow and cold weather and really test the limits of this jacket.... Read More

Very happy with this jacket thus far! So far has kept me warm in below 20 F with wind conditions.
