Perfect for a heavy winter jacket
Love this jacket! I have a few other Pata jackets that are perfect for mild/cold CO winter days, and needed one for very cold/snowy winter days. This fits the bill. It's definitely a little bulky and boxy - but that's what I love about it. It's super comfortable to wear. As another reviewer noted, it does pick up dog hair a little ea... Read Moresier since it's not a smooth, shiny, poly. But I haven't had a big issue and I have a very sheddy dog. I'm 5'4", 135lbs, 32D and medium is my usual size. My other Pata mediums fit a little tighter, but I would say those run small and this jacket runs true to size.
Warm, Thick, and Functional
True to size fit: Well, I say true to size, but I'm not true to size. I'm 5'4" and my measurements are Chest: 43" Waist: 33" Hips: 46". Based on the size charts, my chest/hips are right in between a L/XL. I have several Patagonia sweaters that are larges that fit good, but where this is a long over-the-hip coat, I... Read More ordered an XL. The XL fit me great. It was the right amount of roomy, but not too big. The coat hits at the bottom of my knee, which is the length I wanted/expected because obviously an XL is gonna be longer on a 5'4" person than a small is on the 5'9" model. The sleeves surprisingly fit great. They stayed right at my wrists without the sleeves feeling bunched up or sliding down. Don't worry tall XL friends, I could pull the sleeves down over my palm. I think the design of the wrist closure and behavior of the material is what made it more inclusive to shorter arms. Function: I bought this coat to wear around in the winter (15-40 degrees) since I walk around town in the evenings and spend time just standing/sitting outside in colder weather and generally feel cold. It's great for that purpose. The material is heavy and bulky so I wouldn't wear it hiking, but it kept me super toasty and dry walking a couple miles on pavement in 25 degree weather with snow and wind. Excellent wind blocking. I got hit by a few really strong gusts of wind (sorry wish I could give a temp/speed) and could only feel the pressure of the wind, not its chill. One last thing, I love love love the pockets on this coat. They are in the perfect location for walking with your hands in them. It doesn't feel awkward and the pockets are super warm. Style: Bought in green. The color is beautiful and true to image. This is definitely more of a function piece than a fashion piece, but I still love the way it looks on.
Bad zippers on other products
We picked this coat because the ZIPPER works. The zippers on your other down coats and expensive shells jam all the time and even when working are hard to zip. That makes these products undesirable and sometimes useless.

Warm Wind Blocker for Chicago
This parka is super stylish, I love the matte finish it has, and the pockets are really different from anything else out there. It blocks wind really well and keeps me warm when walking in downtown windy Chicago at -20 celsius / 0 degrees F. I wouldn't say it is super warm, for this kind of cold - i feel it blocks the wind and keeps me warm en... Read Moreough, though. This may be a good thing in the sense that i will probably use it longer, when it starts getting warmer. I guess for these extreme temperatures I wish it were warmer, but didn't want to go back and change it, bc of all of the above. My only wish now is that they made it in the longer version. You can't go wrong with this parka.
Favorite Patagonia parka
Finally, a perfect Patagonia parka for a short person who is no longer skinny:-) Love the straight cut. Modern; provides room for layering without being bulky. Arms are a tad shorter than other parkas Ive tried, which makes this parka perfect for me. I wish Patagonia offered petite sizing in parkas.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts on the Downdrift Parka, Zeynep! Our product development staff reads these reviews, so they will make note of your suggestion for petite sizing.
Trust this Parka
Love the Net Plus fabric to reduce ocean plastics! It is protective in freezing rain/snow and the weight of it is a total comfort in the coldest Midwest winter days! The length was a tad longer than expected and I am happy to have the extra coverage. Pocket styling is cute and functional! The insulated hood really made seals the deal. I trust this ... Read Moreto keep me cozy on the harshest of days! Lots of compliments so far in the green color.
Needed a new winter jacket and wanted one that was longer in length. Everyone seems to be wearing puffer jackets now, so it is nice to wear something that is a little different. Purchased it in the dark green color, but did try the brown one on in the store and truly loved both colors- can't go wrong with either. Wore it to walk the dog in sin... Read Moregle digit weather yesterday for over an hour and stayed warm the entire time. I am 5'7" and have an athletic build with broad shoulders/back and a medium fit me fine, but was a little snug in the shoulder area so I ended up purchasing a large- just so I could have room if I wanted to layer up. It is a type of material where it collects fur/dust easily, but it is easy to wipe off. Definitely recommend!!
Just perfect for an older women who needs to walk a dog.
This coat is just great! I need to walk a dog in any temperature. The coat keeps me warm without needing an thick undergarment, like a sweater, to stay very warm. The hood helps keep the wind off my neck and the pockets are absolutely fantastic. Although it did take me a week or two to realize there are actually to front pockets on each side.
Great Heritage Style Parka
Love this piece! It is not hourglass like the Tres - so looks more modern. Fit is cute and not too baggy in the sleeves (though this means you cannot wear anything super chunky knit under). Color choices were great in my local store (chose a dark green). Recycled down and Netplus recycled fishing net outer fabric make for an environmentally friendl... Read Morey choice too.
I love the overall structure of this parka as it does not give me an hourglass shape, but rather has the profile of an old school parka, that is, it has room in the waist without being drafty. That the exterior is made out of recycled fishing net and innards of recycled down makes this parka an eco-friendly choice. The coat falls right at my knees.... Read More The only drawback is that it is too tight in the arms and shoulders. I cannot wear a loose-fitting sweater/fleece under the parka because of this. Bummer. Even a light or close-fitting layer is uncomfortable at first (sausage arms!) and takes a while to adjust underneath the coat.
The cut is big and boxy, not what I'd expect from Patagonia. The sleeves have stiff elastic cuffs. There's nothing to stop snow from slipping up your arm like would happen if you were cleaning off your car and reached up and over. It has useful large pockets that are easy to access. You might be able to carry a dog leash in one and a wate... Read Morer bottle and treats in the other. That's not enough on the positive side to make me want to keep it. It might be really warm and weather resistant, but I'll never know because it's going back to the store.
Comfortable for late fall and all winter
I purchased this because I loved the way it looked and it reminded me of the prairie dawn parka I bought last year. I bought a size small to be able to layer sweaters underneath. I tried this on with a sweater to make sure I didnt look like a marshmallow. So far it fits nicely and it is comfortable. I wish it came in the dark green featured in the ...
