Kinda Large
May 18, 2022

Love my parka + 87% recycled down

I have owned probably 50 Patagonia jackets it the past twenty years, in every style and type. I am 5 foot 7 , body = athletic / trim (with some curves) and I sometimes find their large generally a bit too constrictive, so I gambled on the XL (online order, I could not try it on) GLAD I sized up! A large is probably my proper size as this is prob... Read Moreably 5% - 10% too big for me, exactly what I wanted. The trim princess cut on the torso gives this parka a lovely shape, the sleeves are hanging a little over my hands ~ just like I like in a winter coat while walking my dogs, my arms extended holding their leashes. The low side buttons (just above the knees) are genius for comforts while sitting down. But truly, the only reason I even purchased a down coat at all was the fact that 87% is recycled down! I am extremely concerned about all animal welfare and rarely / never buy products made from sentient creatures. At least this product reduces the manufacturing need for more down. Win win, for me glad I sized up to a black XL.

fairly trim fit XL + COZY

Been wearing Patagonia for 15 + years. I am a fairly athletic trim 57 w/some curves and I sometimes find Patagonia larges way too restrictive (Fiona parka etc) so I gambled on the XL as I like longer sleeves and a bit of room. Is this 5-10% too large for me? Possibly, but the upper torso part is definitely trim cut, so, I am glad I sized up despite... Read More a large probably being my proper size. Its not too long, just a lil wiggle room. It is spring so I cannot attest to the warmth but I know with a hoodie or sweater underneath in fall/winter I can cozy it up, or just a T-shirt on somewhat cool evenings walking my pups. As a dedicated vegan (zero leather, zero down etc) I *ONLY* went for this down jacket because it was recycled down. Patagonia, please more of this AND more down alternative options (like the down vest only poly) Wings are for flying , not for frying.

Cozy warm but can stain

I bought the dark blue in 2018 and have worn it every winter. I live in the SF Bay Area but also travel to the NW several times a year. It always keeps me cozy and warm--even when it's down to snow conditions--and I think it's flattering. However, there has been some shininess on the material around the neck area--and I'm not sure fr... Read Moreom what. I am washing it right now as I go through my winter clothes and will see if there is any improvement. It has also shed some feathers on occasion. So not perfect but for warmth, it's excellent.

The perfect coat

I had looked at this coat 2 years ago when I decided to replace my old coat (of a different brand) and upgrade to Patagonia. I bought the front range 3 in 1 parka instead and after barely wearing it, it was spitting feathers everywhere and wasnt as warm as promised so I brought it into the store for warranty exchange. Decided to go with my gut and ... Read Moreget this to replace it. First of all- SO flattering on. Surprisingly so for a puffy jacket. Love that it goes past my knees but has snaps on the sides and 2 way zipper to have room to move if needed. The neck of the collar and the insides of the pockets are covered in soft material which also makes them feel warmer. I got the medium and can fit a fleece under it comfortably, Im generally a pretty TTS medium in Patagonia and I dont like things too fitted. Im 53 and about 140 lbs. So after buying this I wore it to the top of Pikes Peak with a synchilla fleece and long sleeved t-shirt under it and was WARM. It was 11 F degrees at the peak with high winds and -10 F windchill. I couldnt believe it but I was comfortable (except my face, which was frozen lol). I could put my bare hands in my pockets and they were totally fine. I was shocked how well this coat blocked not only the cold but the blow-you-over wind! The frozen range didnt stand up as well as my expedition weight parka from a much cheaper brand but this one is going to do it. Absolutely would recommend this to anyone. If you need something warmer than this, youll need to find true expedition parkas because this with a fleece under it will cover you in pretty much every scenario. For reference, I live in Denver but previously lived in Chicago and have become incredibly particular about coats for that reason. 15/10 totally recommend. This will be my forever coat. Patagonia is the best!

Super soft, perfect fit

Fits perfectly, is so soft and looks amazing on. I had previously had the Fiona and found that to be big in the shoulders, where this one is perfect.

April 3, 2022

The only coat you need during the winter mornings

No cons!

Cozy warm

Love this parka. The length is great and its really warm.

Super Warm

Absolutely love this coat. It is super warm and is extra long to cover your legs (Im 52 and it goes to right above my knees). Definitely recommend!

Nice coat but haven't worn outside yet

I exchanged the Jackson Glacier parka for the Down With It parka because I really wanted a removable hood, and the Jackson Glacier parka had a very annoying zipper that poked under the chin when fully zipped. The Down With It seems functional and like it should be warm (haven't worn outside yet). I like the way the neck feels when fully zipped... Read More (compared to the Jackson Glacier). It is quite fitted and I had to size up from my normal small in Patagonia outerwear. I'm 5'9" and 125 lbs. Overall, I like the styling of the Jackson Glacier much better, but the Down With It gets more points for comfort and function.

I bought the purple and it keeps me warm during winter

Awesome Coat

I love my coat. Nice slim fit, not bulky & puffy. Closes nice & high at neckline. Keeps me warm. I also Love the length of this coat. Wish I had it in several other colors!

March 29, 2022

This is the color to get

So I had previously left a low star review of this coat that I had previously purchased in the color Plum due to it easily staining However the Patagonia customer service was so exemplary that I was able to ship back the plum coat and they mailed out a new coat in the color black and honored the price I paid in regards to this coat in black its mor... Read Moree of a off black like black navy but I love it so much more I have worn it about as much as the other coat but havent noticed any unusual staining and oddly I feel as though it fits better even though its the same size..its a very slim and sleek fit and keeps me warm to the point where I keep hoping the weather stays cold so I can keep wearing it. If youre thinking of getting this coat Id say do it but definitely go for a darker color. My last winter coat was a North face but I think I will definitely be a sticking to Patagonia from now on

March 29, 2022


Love the color blue flattering cut in the style. This coat is warm but I run cold so on really cold days I wear a sweatshirt with it!(just wish it was a longer length Would definitely buy this next year in a long version.

March 23, 2022

Super warm

Wonderful. Cant live in MN without it. Worth every penny.

March 20, 2022

Super warm

Love the princess cut fit

March 17, 2022


I was torn between the small and xs and bought both. Ultimately I settled with xs. The sleeves are a little shorter than I would like them but the rest fits like a glove. Im 54 and 124lbs. Its warm and comfortable and I am happy with my purchase.

March 16, 2022

Slimming and warm

The fit is snug which makes the coat flattering. The coat is also very warm so there is no need for additional layers.

March 15, 2022

Best warm coat

I love this coat - the length, the warmth, the slim fit, the chevron stitching, the detachable hood, the two-way zipper, the snaps, the deep zippered pockets and the color. Its stylish and doesnt look like a bulky down parka.

March 7, 2022

So Disappointed- Quality has deteriorated.

I bought this Patagonia slim fit parka to replace my current Patagonia one, purchased several years ago. I ordered both the old and now the new versions in medium and it fits perfectly, to accommodate a winter sweater underneath, on my slender 5'4" 119 lb. I've loved my older version- stylish, slim fit, knee length, nice and warm- an... Read Mored the only thing I had kept wishing for was that it have snap closures over the zipper. Sure enough, the new version has those, which was making it perfect. So I enthusiastically ordered it. How disappointing to find it was not made to the quality I had come to expect from Patagonia. The baffles are now larger, the down filling is thinner and the new parka is not nearly as warm as my old one. We have winter temps occasionally as low as 0º to 20s and my older version has worked extremely well to keep me warm and comfy on those nights. This new version does not offer good cold protection'- I felt the cold seeping through on a 40ishº day. Why Patagonia made certain changes they did (baffles, thinner down fill, fabric) is unfortunate. As the saying goes "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". The outer shell is now a lower quality poly fabric, as well. I've retuned the new parka for a refund and will keep shopping.

Response from Patagonia
March 15, 2022

Hey Sharon, thank you for the review. We're so sorry to hear of your disappointment with the Down With It Parka. We wanted to address a couple things you mentioned in your review. You're correct that some changes have been made - the baffle lines are different now, and have more of a diagonal cut to give a more flattering shape. The down fill has been changed from 700-fill to 600-fill. The outer shell is now 100% recycled polyester. Since you've already returned the parka, we wanted to give you an alternative to check out that you might find to be a bit more warm, the [Women's Downdrift Parka]( Otherwise, if your heart is set on the old version of the Down With It Parka, we do see a couple posted on Worn Wear as well.

March 2, 2022

Perfect warmth and fit

I absolutely love this jacket. Love how it fits me (Im 5.2 and 115lbs)and everything else about it. The buttons that open on the side are brilliant, makes it easy to sit down and move faster.

February 28, 2022

The perfect coat!

I was hesitant to order a Large as Ive noticed Patagonia products typically run smaller. The large fits perfectly and I even have some room. This coat is warm and the perfect length!

February 25, 2022

Warm and nice looking

This coat is super warm and the red color is bright and cheery against the Vermont snow! The hood is indispensable during the Vermont winter. I wish they made this exact coat in a hip or mid-thigh length. Or both!

February 22, 2022


This is a solid winter coat. I like that it both snaps and zips. There aren't a lot of "extras" on this coat ( belt, extra pockets, etc.). It is warm. What I like most about it is that it has a bit of style, while being warm. It's not a plain, bulky down coat. I thought when I was buying it I was either getting style OR warmth. ... Read MoreIt has a bit of style to it, and paired with the warmth, it is a solid coat that I would buy again.

February 20, 2022

Love this coat.

I purchased both the small and the medium in navy and found the medium to be more comfortable with bulky sweaters. The coat is very warm and I love the hood and the length. It does have a slim look even though it is puffy. I love it!

February 19, 2022

Warm enough (Max 18°C)

I love this Parka, it made a huge difference with the one I had before. However, you need to have warm things under it for you to feel warm overall. I would say that this jacket is perfecto fo a range of temperatures between (8 and 18°C) My favorite parts are: the zipper because it is strong and the hood because is big (so easier to put on without ...

Please make a longer puffy coat, Patagonia!

Believe me, I loooooove my old black Down With It jacket. It has been a staple in my fall, winter, spring wardrobe for 6 yearsits starting to look more grey than black, and admittedly, with a sweater, its snug. So I wanted a large. But the large is much larger and honestly, what I want more than anything from Patagonia is a truly long puffy coat. P... Read Morelease Patagonia, recognize that not all of us are athletes. Some of us just rely on your amazing products. I dont need space to move my legs when Im sitting in a stadium watching my boys playing football in subzero temps. I just want my Down With It to be 18 inches longer. Im sending this back not because its too roomy but because honestly, I just want a longer coat, and for years Ive been hopeful, but Patagonia just hasnt figured this population out.

February 17, 2022

This is a very comfortable fit and excellent severe weather protection. I wanted a hoodie and this one delivers comfortably!

What is working for me is its light weight; collar around neck works well with the hood.

February 14, 2022

Love the feel

This coat is just what I wanted. It is warm, has inside cuffs in the sleeves to keep out the cold, has zippered pockets, and has a clean look. The front zipper was hard to get started--a little lubricant helped. Most of all I like that it is 87% recycled!

Cozy coat!

Very warm especially with the wind blowing

Great parka, keeps me warm and super comfortable

Great overall, warm, comfortable, love all the pockets

This coat is amazing.I love the detachable hood, buttons to snap it closed (plus the zipper), the long length, all the pockets and the warmth!

I have never had a coat that is warmer. I mean I literally just throw it over a t-shirt and go about my chilly NYC days.

February 9, 2022

Hey Ashley, thank for the feedback on our Down With It Parka. It sounds like your parka could use a wash, please give the following care instructions a try and if that doesn't work, connect with our [customer service team]( so we can go over some other options with you. You'll want to close all zippers, snaps and velcro. Machine wash it in cool water with a mild detergent (no bleach, no fabric softener, preferably powder) and then tumble dry on low heat (no fabric softener) with a couple of clean tennis balls or dryer balls. This will fluff the down, and help to refresh and tighten up the fabric around the down.

Great Coat

I ordered both the M and L in this coat and ended up keeping the L. The M was a little tight with layers on. The L was more comfortable to move in and the sleeves were nice and long.

Keeping Warm in a Frigid Chicago Winter

I can't believe it took me so long to discover the warmth, comfort, and quality of Patagonia!!

Warm and stylish! Perfect for tall ladies!

I couldnt believe that a medium fit me so well. Im over 61 (about 140 pounds) and the sleeves are just long enough, and the waist is in the right place.

Its a little tighter when I layer with thick sweaters, but not unbearable. Im glad I didnt size up. One of the main reasons that I bought this coat was the reclaimed down and recycled polyester shell. I have always bought synthetic outerwear due to concerns about the welfare of the ducks and geese, and I love that this isnt a concern with this coat.

Easy and warm

I love this coat! Had a chance to upgrade but still chose this one. It's light, soft and warmer than the 3-in-1 Parka. but anything below 30 degrees I might need more layers or a warmer coat. It's also washable which is important because it gets dirty easily (well at least to me). Patagonia's customer service and warranty also make i... Read Moret a safe bet.

Don't know!

I like the warmth it's a wee bit snug through the thigh area. I would really appreciate having inside pockets on both sides of the fronts, just s simple open pocket that many jackets have.

Wear for winter beach walks

Perfect for my winter beach walks.

December 19, 2021

Very warm and looks great

Really pleased with this parka, the only note I would make is that the pocket placement isn't ideal so it's hard to hold a phone or wallet in there without feeling them brush against your legs every time you walk. Otherwise looks and feels great.

December 14, 2021

Super warm

Love the coat. Wore it on a 32 degrees kept me warm.

December 14, 2021

Super warm

Perfect long black puffy. Keeps me warm, hood detaches, and good pockets.

Top Model in Top Soil

I feel like a hot Inuit model in this jacket. Super warm super stylish and super sustainable. Thank you Patagonia!

December 11, 2021

Warm and Super Comfy!

Exactly what I was looking for in a casual wear winter jacket that will keep me warm in the coolest of days. Definitely is a bigger jacket, so not ideal for conserving of space I guess, but if you're looking for a winter jacket for warmth I 10/10 recommend this one.

December 6, 2021

Great coat

Love the length and the hood! If you wear bulky sweaters under this coat, go up a size as the arm sleeves are tight with layered clothing. Nice fit otherwise

December 5, 2021

Nice Parka

I bought this for my wife, she loves it! It's super warm and comfy!

November 30, 2021

Cozy in the winter

This coat is perfect for cold days and nights when youre out gallivanting around the town. Its too long for hiking or biking but perfect for walking and checking out the Christmas lights. Thanks Patagonia

November 29, 2021

Insanely comfortable and warm

I'm not a person to write reviews but there's no way I'm not writing one for this. I've never really felt the need to buy a parka but I really liked how they looked and have heard good things. I finally got one and I understand what all the hype is about. I'm pretty tall and curvy, its a little small in the upper chest area... Read More but that's it. I stay warm but don't get super hot.

November 29, 2021

Fluffy and warm

Im short and curvy so I had to move up to a large. It was worth it despite the long arms, it is a great jacket. I think it runs small but the quality and warmth is priceless.

November 27, 2021


This coat is so warm and cozy. Its the perfect length for those chilly days and fits true to size. Highly recommend!

November 26, 2021

Wonderful coat

I needed a warm dependable coat to wear in the northeast winter weather and life your recycling and reusing methods. Thank you for your ethical manufacturing methods!

November 25, 2021

Good, warm fit!

It fits well, but does run comfortably snug. Nice color and shape. Great for early morning walks when its cold.

November 24, 2021

Like a down sleeping bag you can walk in

This is the third of this coat I have bought. It is the warmest thing ever on my body. My daughter borrowed the first one to wear at her son's cold weather baseball games. I told her to keep it and bought one for myself in a larger size to be a little more comfortable in it. Then I bought one for my sister in law for Christmas when she admired... Read More mine. You do look like a big poof ball wearing it, but we don't care about that at all, it will keep you warm on the coldest days.

Love this jacket

Love the length and fit of this jacket. I got the navy, it's beaitiful. It's fitted to your shape and is flattering. I'm 5'8" and it hits at my knees. It is super warm and functions perfectly. The hood is also very warm!

November 24, 2021

Just what I needed . . . . . .

I needed a warm long coat that is comfortable for everyday or during outdoor activities. I love taking my dog on long walks and didn't want something too heavy. I love that it has snaps along the side (at the bottom) to widen the opening of the coat. You can also keep it narrow so it doesn't bell outward. This comes in handy when walking ... Read Morebriskly with my dog and taking wider strides. It fits very contoured to my body which I also like and doesn't make me look like a marshmallow. I have a curvy athletic build so I appreciate a good fit. One of the reasons I picked this coat was because of the cozy hood but, I like the fact that the hood is removable. I really recommend it. : )

November 20, 2021

A Great Coat

I live in SE Pennsylvania and it hasnt gotten too cold yet but this coat definitely keeps me warm in low 40s/ mid 30s weather. Ill update this review once it gets colder.

Warm, long, lovely

I am 5'2'' with a slim frame but a larger chest (38C). I ordered the large and I was swimming in it. The medium fits perfect and looks tailored not bulky. The jacket is long, about to my knees, with side snaps to allow for a wider stride (which I walk alot in NYC). The hood fits well, even better when I wear a hat underneath. I am no... Read Moret into layering clothing, so I usually either have on a pair of scrubs or a light top and this jacket keeps me really warm. I have used in a few times when it was 43F in NYC and the Bronx when the wind was blowing and I was super warm. I took a longer walk with it on and just a tee-shirt underneath and I was very warm. The arm length for me was perfect. I can zip up this jacket, sit on the train or in the car and have no problem with mobility. I spent a while looking for a good warm winter long parka and I love this jacket. Coupled with tall winter boots it will be perfect for cold winter days walking to the hospital. I ordered mine through Patagonia and the customer service was amazing (as always). I had no problems exchanging sizes. For me the Medium was perfect, the large was too large. If you like layering more than a shirt and hoodie underneath then maybe a large, but the large was big in the arms, armpits, stomach and chest, just over all made for a larger body habitus.

November 16, 2021

Love the coat

Coat arrived very promptly after being ordered. Looks great, fits well, is comfortable. Looking forward to wearing it on cold winter days ahead.

November 16, 2021

Super watm

Its like a sleeping bag.warm & cuddly for colder days

November 16, 2021

Very cozy and warm

I am 5 4 and 120lbs. I bought the medium because the small was too tight if wearing a sweater or sweatshirt underneath. This coat is so warm ! I love it !

November 15, 2021

Prepared for winter

I moved to Kansas a few months ago, and I knew about the terrible winter here. With this jacket Im more that prepared. I love the length, the hoodie and its super comfy. I chose the medium even if Im a small in some clothing for left some room to sweaters and fleece. I love it!

November 14, 2021

Super warm, flattering for a puffy coat, true to size

Super warm, bulky but flattering for a puffy coat. Wore it to a tailgate and football game that was 35 degrees and windy and stayed warm. Im 56. 150lbs and large was perfect.

Think I am going to love it

I am not certain I got the right size. Most of my coats I add a size so I can wear layers under but with this I am hoping just it by itself is enough. I LOVE that its fitted. Better than the other sleeping bag coats. Think I am going to love it!

November 11, 2021

Perfect fit! Feels great.

I love the way this coat feels. It provides warmth without bulk. It's flattering and will keep me warm. I love that it comes with a hood, and that the hood isn't really big and bulky. The length is perfect. Just what I wanted in a longer coat!!

November 8, 2021

Nice and cozy!

I feel like Im bundled up in a soft down comforter when wearing this! Its super cozy and warm. Excited to test it out through the cold New England winter. The sizing is great. I can comfortably wear it over a sweater.

November 8, 2021

Beautiful, but not so great on the sizing

I really love this coat and Patagonias efforts for the planet. I originally ordered a large and it was huge. So I ordered a medium and couldnt even zip it up. So please work on your sizing, there must be a happy medium somewhere. Thanks

November 7, 2021

Having a warm hug in every movement

I Love this jacket, feels like your having a warm hug in every movement, slim fit, true to size and the pockets are wonderful, nice soft material that keeps your hands warm!! Just buy it

November 1, 2021

Super Warm

I love this coat! Though it runs small, its amazing if you size up! I normally wear a medium in clothing, but a large in patagonia. Keeps me warm in upper peninsula winters!

October 29, 2021


Overall the jacket is beautiful, warm , and well made. The only thing, I dont like is the hoodie. It could be better.

I live in Washington state and Im also I soccer mom. This is just perfect. Keeps me warm! I love it!

I had personally had been eyeballing this jacket for the last 2 years. Now that I have it I wish I would of made this purchase 2 years ago. Its just perfect. I love it. I have received soooo many compliments!

September 12, 2021

It's a homerun!

This coat is true to size. It is versatile with removable hood and vented sides where you can unsnap for better leg movement when seated. The medium sleeves ran long. This coat has a fitted look which makes it look so stylish. Warm, soft and cuddly. I bought one for me and both of my daughters!

September 8, 2021

Cozy without too much bulk

I love this coat for everyday life in really cold conditions. Walking the dog, watching a hockey game - if I'm wearing this, I know I'll be warm. And if it's snowing, I've got the hood. Cozy and not too bulky. Love it.

September 5, 2021

Really wanted it to work

Just opened the box. The zipper gets stuck repeatedly on the way up and down. When I put a sweater on underneath the arms are so tight that it's hard to move. I got a large and I'm 5'6" and 140 lbs. This could have been amazing, but I have to have mobility and be comfortable even in a thick winter jacket.

Excellent quality, room to improve

Ive had this jacket for 2 winters now. It is super warm, and excellent quality- lots of nice details like the soft lining around the neck and snaps on the sides.

Best in price range for fashion + function

I tried a couple comparable coats from other brands, but this one has the best fit and quality.

Cute but runs small

This is a super cute coat, but it does run small. In coats I wear a small, but in this one I definitely needed a medium. I would definitely size up one from your normal size. If you are more pear shaped this might not be the coat for you as the area around the wearers bottom is pretty narrow.
