Patagonia Women's Down Sweater Hoody

Kinda Large
September 25, 2020

Love this jacket, love this brand

It makes me happy to know how I'm buying such a great jacket from such an ethical company - hooray for Patagonia!!

September 10, 2020


I had such a hard time finding a jacket with longer sleeve length . But this jacket definitely fits the bill. I ordered both medium and larger and settled on the large because along with my long arms, I have wider shoulders. The large ended up being most comfortable. Would I like the torso area a little more fitted? Sure. But overall it is still fl... Read Moreattering and extremely cozy!! Two thumbs up, five stars!!!

Super light but warm

Beautiful color

Fits my growing teen!

This fit perfectly for my slender 13 year old! She originally had a girls coat, but this is much better and she loves the color.

Lightweight and warm

Love this jacket. Very lightweight and warm.

Works great

I am a back country ski guide in Wyoming. I needed a jacket that would be breathable and incredibly warm. I was able to wear this in -20F conditions while skiing. Giving me the ability to work and not become too hot. I would layer this with a thinner Patagonia jacket and a thin water resistant shell. Overall great product.

Wearing a hug

I live in this jacket. It feels like wearing a warm hug! Highly recommend for using as a warm layer for skiing and hiking/backpacking.

June 14, 2020

Simply perfect

This coat is simply perfect. Really warm and incredibly comfortable. My go-to layer during the winter in the Pacific Northwest, whether on hikes, waiting for the bus on my commute, or going out for the evening, this coat is what I grab from the rack every time.

Love it even more than previous

I have owned several down sweater jackets for many many years. This is my first down sweater hoody and I love it even more. I think my down jacket (about 4 years old) fits a bit longer in arms and baggier in upper arm area so I was considering looking elsewhere for a different jacket this season that fit better for my arms.... I tried on some other... Read More brands but for some reason, when I ordered the Dirt Roamer jacket, I decided to see if the down sweater hoody would fit better. Wow... My down sweater hoody jacket fits so perfect, it's like I ordered a custom-made jacket for me. I have never been more pleasantly surprised... The jacket still has a great fitted feel, but this one fits me better in the chest and armpit area for an active person. I have had shoulder issues recently, and just having seams in the wrong places on jackets is something I have noticed aggravates me. The movements you can do with your arms in this jacket is incredible. And it feels even lighter than my older jacket. The length is perfect. I ordered a size S so I can layer under and I don't like my jackets super tight. I will wear this jacket for during the colder weather (under my hunting outerwear because I am cold-natured), under my snowboard outer layer, and just a running around town jacket. I do wear my down sweater vest and the down sweater jacket at the same time. It works for me! Thank you Patagonia. As always, I am never disappointed.

Where is the down?!?

I tried this jacket on for fit before ordering and found it was very fluffy with a significant amount of down fill. However, the jacket I received is completely flat and has little to no down distributed throughout the jacket. In addition, this jacket is heavy due to the large amount of fabric used to contain the nonexistent down fill. I am pretty ... Read Moredisappointed, because I really needed to replace this layer, but this is a waste of money without the down. It's too bad there aren't more quality checks on what products are sent out. Returning!

Response from Patagonia
March 31, 2020

We are sorry to hear this but glad you got that returned back to us since you were unsatisfied. In the future, feel free to wash and dry your new down products. Sometimes, storing and shipping those can cause the feathers to flatted/clump up. You are always welcome to try the wash/dry before sending back.

March 19, 2020

When in doubt, go for the bigger size.

I deliberated between sizes 'S' and 'XS'. The XS was more fitted and looked more flattering, but my arm movements were a little restricted when reaching both arms forwards/backwards. I could hug myself perfectly with the 'S', however, and so I went for that one!

March 9, 2020

Comfy, lightweight, suits well

The Ws Down Sewater suits well with its waisted design, for me size XS fits regular or either wide, so that I can easily wear a woolen sweater under. I like it's lightweight and warm at the same time. Great for ski-touring as well!

March 2, 2020

Warm but not bulky

Great jacket, warm and low bulk. Packable and light so it is great for travel. Great color selection as well. The only thing I didn't like is the Patagonia logo on the chest. It's too big and flashy. I would much prefer a smaller tag on a side seam, like with pants, or embroidered in a less conspicuous spot, or frankly no logo at all. The... Read More tag inside the jacket says Patagonia already. Anyway, I carefully removed it with my seam reaper and it is now perfect.

I really like the fit true to size not lots of room but comfortable & length is good.

A little to loose to

A little to loose to what I expected, but in general feels very nice and cosy. Seems to protect from the wind event without a scarf or anything. Overall, really happy about the product

February 13, 2020

Smooth transaction and great product

The jacket was delivered to Sweden in just a few days and it was perfect.

All year round multi sports and coach surfing

Second time purchasing this jacket over 12 years. Not a bad turnaround. Sizing: I purchased XS and it fits true to size. For a reference, I wear size 2 in most tops and 26-27 in bottoms. Fit cut, moves well. Material: If you are debating between down or synthetic, the question you got to ask yourself is: are you gonna wash it often? Down jacket I ... Read Morefind do not wash well when done repeatedly. If you are are gonna use this jacket in motion with a thin layer and you are a french sweater like me, go synthetic. I do own the nano (another great jacket, I will review). The nano is almost as warm to me. Usage: I am using this skiing, snowshoeing, biking and reading books on my couch. Skiing, this is my last layer under a hard shell. Yay or Nay: YAY! Love it. PS: It goes on sale every February or so during the winter sale...just saying.

February 9, 2020

Toasty warm

The down sweater hoody fits well, I especially like the snug neck area. I have found it so warm I’ve been able to loose one of my thinner layers. One gripe: the inner pocket could be smaller so that items don’t slip down level with the hip pockets. I won’t be taking it off till May.

January 21, 2020


I ordered my usual size : M and it is perfect. I am 1m70, 58 kilos, chest 92 cm. Enough large to put a sweater below. It is really light and Orange Sunset is a nice color (not too bright).

January 20, 2020

Casual Jacket

I like that I can wear a sweater or a shell over the jacket. I ended up going with XXS after reading lots of reviews based on size. I was very worried that it might be too small but it fits perfectly; fits just right with not a lot of extra material. I do prefer fitted clothes. I am 102 lbs and 5'2''. The Jacket is very thin and has ... Read Morekept me warm in as low as 20 degree weather (granted, I have not been outside very long during it.). The jacket gets very warm when i wear a long sleeve under. I really like that it covers my neck, mouth, and nose when it is zipped up all the way. I love this because it means that I don't have to wear extra pieces of clothing like a scarf. This jacket is versatile and I think I will be using it for a good amount of the year. I like that it is compact.

Not only is this jacket an excellent choice for me guiding in Patagonia it is also my wife’s favorite winter jacket for around the city. Stylish and functional.

Versatile Jacket

Super warm and lightweight. It’s perfect for anything. Last week I wore it in frosty Kansas City and today, I’ll stroll around Paris in it.

December 31, 2019

Awesome jacket

I am 5’5”, 110 pounds and originally bought the XS and felt it was a bit large. So I ordered the XXS and it fits like a glove! Still enough room for long sleeve layers and is fitted really well for a more flattering look. Super lightweight so I can wear this at work in a freezing cold hospital and keeps me warm while being active. Love it!

December 31, 2019

Just what I wanted

Comfy, light and warm enough to about 35-40 degrees. If moving it works in even colder temps. Love the hood with the high coverage and soft fleece. The sunset orange is such a cool color!

Great jacket but the pocket zippers need to change

I got this jacket as a gift last year and wear it frequently since it is comfortable and warm. However, the stitching around the arms are constantly getting caught and pulled in the pocket zippers. This doesn’t happen when the pockets are zipped closed, however I use my pockets so they are mostly open. A zipper with smaller teeth would be better. M...

After going through some options for a new puffy jacket, I'm so glad I ended up with this one. It's exceptionally warm and comfy. Also, the extra little fleece lining at the top of the zipper is a big plus.

I have been debating on buying this for over a year and for Christmas I decided to get myself something nice. I couldn’t be happier with this jacket! Warm and lightweight! Perfection!

Surprisingly warm!

Pretty thin but warmer than you’d think. I’m about 5’8” athletic build, arms/shoulders can be a problem for me with coats but I got a large (med was way too narrow in the shoulders) and the arms were plenty long!

Decent Product, I am happy with it :)

I purchased the Ws Down Sweater Hoody, and have just made it back from hiking and climbing around the Buffalo River Trail area in AR.

Second time around with this

Second time around with this jacket. I bought my first in 2004. It is the best! I wish there was just a pinch more room under the armpit but I’m being a little picky with that request.

December 15, 2019

Best purchase of the year

When I opened the package, I was a little skeptical about how warm this jacket would be based on how thin the material is. I was wrong. I’ve worn it out in 32 degree weather on the water where it’s really windy and the jacket kept me warm! The hood is also so cozy. The light weight feel is an added plus.

December 15, 2019

Very nice but not for really cold weather

I bought this jacket for exercise walking in NYC where we get winter temperatures from the 20's to the low 30's, occasionally colder.

I decided to keep this jacket because it is very attractive, fits very well, I can use it for spring and fall and layering is not such a terrible thing. Plus, I really like Patagonia.

December 14, 2019

Lovin this coat!

I was looking for something warm and not heavy. I love how I can squish it anywhere and it doesn't add extra weight to my daily routine. The only thing I would change on the design is that I wish the front zipper pockets were a little bit deeper/larger.

This jacket is what I’ve been waiting for! Perfect fit, super warm, great design, and Patagonia. Should have bought this sooner-I’m in love!

December 11, 2019

Never taking it off

This is seriously the best jacket. The arms are long enough, the body is long enough and it’s extra warm. Super cozy and my go to item for just about anything...walking the dog? This jacket will keep you warm. Skiing? The ultimate mid layer. Snowshoeing? No problem. Need a blanket for the couch? This jacket can be a blanket too. Highly recommend.

Too slim

Patagonia has changed their pattern to fit all women who are shaped like a Barby doll. I am slim but I am not hour glass shaped and their women’s jackets all go in at the waist and flare out at the hips. They are limiting their demographic by cutting all their jackets the same way.

My husband got a down sweater hoody, and I have been jelly ever since. This fall I got one of my own. The only thing I didn't love was the color selection, but I got over it choosing black. Why not dark blue or green for with out flashy bright trim? For the ladies?

November 25, 2019

Still the best

I purchased this because my present down sweater is somewhat big for me since I lost weight. I'm not ready to give it up, but it is five years old and well worn, and I wanted an excuse for buying a new one. Speaking from experience this is one of the best products made by Patagonia and I wear it continuously during three seasons, in all weathe... Read Morer for skiing, hiking, and herding sheep. It has held up well through washings (with a down wash product) and still looks quite good. It's a lot tougher than it seems when it comes to snagging on fences or nibbles from sheep or scratches from dogs. Think I've lost only a couple of feathers. It's just the perfect garment for all temperatures below mid-fifties (in a very damp, cold climate for 7-8 months of the year). I wear a shell over it for wet and cold conditions. The new down sweater I purchased in a medium (I weigh 135 lbs) has some new design features that give it a closer and comfortable but not too snug fit, and a better hood fit, too. The cobalt blue is a beautiful color, too. Definitely the go-to product for me.

Response from Patagonia
December 2, 2019

Hey there Carly! Thank you for taking the time to provide us feedback on the Down Sweater Hoody. Down insulated items are prone to some leakage, especially from the seams, it's completely natural and shouldn't affect the warmth of your jacket. We recommend trying to pull the feather back in from the opposite side or use some tenacious tape to patch up any holes to prevent further leaking. As always you are welcome to return the jacket for a free repair at any time!

November 17, 2019

I bought this jacket before a last minute trip to Colorado at the end of October. On the plus size, it packs up super small and is very light.

I’ll let you read all other reviews and save my breath. I will say that the color is muted compared to the photo. I like it better.

Best of the Best

Still the best

I love this coat. Honestly, I think it is one of Patagonia’s best products. This is my second down sweater. The last one pretty much went everywhere with me for 8 years. The quality and construction make this a versatile layer. It is warm for its weight and fits comfortably. We live in a pretty chilly place, dominated by winter. This coat is the an...

SUPER warm & easy

This is the best all-around jacket. Super warm and wind-proof, love the zip pockets. Only wish it had a bigger pocket on the inside for when I need to loose a layer or gloves, etc.

This jacket is great! Warm, lightweight and I love the color, it’s a gorgeous pink!

Jacket is very thin. I

Jacket is very thin. I thought an 800 fill power would give a thicker, more substantial-feeling jacket for $300. I do, however, appreciate the recycling aspect and humane down harvest.

Best women's puffy!

Great fit, love the color. I'm 5ft2in 98lbs and I wear size XXS. Last season's XXS was way too tight on me and the pockets were just too small didn't fit my hands. This season's colors are better and the sizing is just perfect!

Great Coat, delicate material

This is a great comfortable and light coat. Many compliments, and so easy to wear in different conditions. However, the material tears easily so I find myself handling it gingerly when walking through forests or hanging with dogs that jump.

Love this down sweater!

I have a few other down jackets, but this one has quickly become my favorite! I love the soft lining at the front of the neck and it keeps me warm without adding bulk. I am 5' 4" with athletic/stocky build. I tried on the L but I felt like it had too much extra room so I went with a M. Great purchase!

March 27, 2019


This jacket is phenomenal. I've worn it literally year round (and that's saying something, I live in the Northwest Territories!) and I find it to be warm enough and cool enough, good for layering, lightweight, and remarkably waterproof and windproof. Not perfect, as it's obviously a down jacket, but I've worn it with a heavy woo... Read Morel sweater underneath at -30 Celsius pretty regularly, and never felt cold. The hood is perfect, I wouldn't ever buy a down jacket without one now. Only shame is that it rips very easily.

The Perfect Jacket

I have had this jacket for three years and it is perfect. The jacket is so lightweight and comfortable to wear but keeps me warm in the Colorado mountain winter. I had washed it multiple times and is my go to jacket!

Great fit and lightweight

I purchased this jacket for an upcoming trip abroad. The fit is perfect and warmth cozy. The jacket is extremely lightweight, which makes it ideal for travel. As reference, I am 5’2” 112 lbs, and the XXS fit perfectly with light layers underneath. For more layering, sizing up might be preferable.

Like a second skin

This down hoody is my most beloved wardrobe staple. It's so versatile, I can really wear it in any situation: as a layer under a shell, as a stand-alone, in the wind or snow.

good enough jacket, annoying "feminizing" features

this jacket has some things going for it - it's packable and warm. but it has some features that are presumably what patagonia think women want, since these design features are not found on the men's version of this jacket. some of these features affect the function/fit of the jacket more than others. the slim-fit cut of the jacket makes ... Read Moreit hard to layer, and forced me to size up because my regular size (S) can't fit around the hips, which means that I had to go with an M, which is slightly too large in the hips and gapes when the jacket is open. the torso of the jacket is also longer, which might not strictly be a slimming feature, but makes the jacket an awkward length on a person my height (5'4", which admittedly isn't that tall, so I hope the jacket works better for taller folks). other stuff is just aesthetic, but the difference between the men's version just confuses me: the baffling on the side, for instance - why is it thinner-ribbed than on the rest of the jacket? the zippers also catch on the fabric pretty easily, and feel flimsy, as do the cuffs - they feel similarly cheap to the ones on the uniqlo ultra light down jackets, which are a third of the price of this jacket. if patagonia makes this jacket exactly in the men's silhouette (no stupid side panels) and in a short size, i'm buying it immediately. this one, though, goes back to the store.

November 10, 2018

Love this coat!

This is my favorite coat! It it very warm and practical. It feels very light which is nice, but still keeps you nice and toasty! It’s perfect to brave snowy Colorado winters. I highly recommend this coat to anyone.

New Down Favorite

I recently bought this on the amazing Worn Wear site for a ridiculously great price. (The garment was apparently "faded throughout." Looks brand new to me.) I had fallen in love with my REI Magma 850 from last season, but wanted something with a hood. The Down Sweater is perfect for me and it feels warmer than the Magma. I've use thi... Read Mores to walk the dogs, bike to work, hike and car camp. Temps have fallen into the 20's here in MN and the Down Sweater has kept me warm. Fit is great. Seems like one of the few Patagonia items that's not slim fit. I'm shaped like an actual woman so "slim fit" means "doesn't fit" in my world. If that sounds like you, rest assured this coat will work out fine, even with layers. And thank you Patagonia for doing all you can to love and respect the environment. I will continue to support you and your products long into the future.

Still going strong after 3 years

I love this jacket. I lost the stuff sack but use something else - packs easily, keeps me warm, still in great shape after 3 years. I have a medium and am 5'10" 145lbs, small around the middle but long arms. It fits over other layers fine.

November 4, 2018

Love this jacket!

This jacket is my first Patagonia purchase. I am 5’5” and 125 lbs and the Small fits perfect! It’s not right and not loose, just right. I was concerned as to how thin it appears but it’s actually very warm! I hate bulky winter coats so this is perfect for me. Highly recommend it.

Please bring back the design from a few years ago

I have purchased several hooded down sweaters over the years. The design from this year is my least favorite--so much so I didn't purchase one. The cut is much tighter in the torso than the one from two (?) years ago and the bottom is very unflattering to my (flat) behind; it makes my butt look much bigger because of the way it is cut. The cur... Read Morerent iteration is flared out and cut straight across. The down sweater I own from two years ago has a nice bias and a rounded shape in the back; it is slightly longer than the front but not too long. I tried on several sizes (as well as several different jackets) and NONE of them worked. I usually love Patagonia clothing items but the past two years have been a bust on every item I tried on.

I was reassured that a gentle detergent will clean up my messes I may make. Thank you, Patagonia for your usual awesomeness!!!

so much warmth for so little material

This jacket is magical and will be what I live in during winters from here on out,in the city and in the mountains. I add a rain shell over it for waterproofing.

Comfortable and warm - zippers are a bit flimsy

I've had this jacket for a month and really like it. It is warm,comfortable,and it fits well.

Another perfect jacket from Patagonia!!

After placing the order and before I actually got my jacket,I was very nervous about two things: the color and the size. I ordered Elwah Blue,but worried about it being too dulled. I constantly regretted that I didn't order Strait Blue,but not sure if that color was too bright... I was not sure about the size that I ordered neither. I'm... Read More 5'2,<100 lb,ordered size xs before reading online reviews which by many people claimed this jacket ran huge. So I was basically very very uneasy with my purchase. Today my jacket arrives. I fall in love with it immediately!!! This jacket looks as cute as everything else I've got from Patagonia. The color is so perfect as well as it is the fitting. I tried to put different shells or coats (all size xs) on over it with no problem at all. It is truly lightweight and warm as others have said. I cannot be more satisfied with this investment. It's all spring in Texas now. But I start to hope winter is coming back! LOL

Always the best!

I outgrew my old Down Sweater Hoody and sought out a replacement last fall,sadly I wasn't a fan of any of the colors options at that time and after much back and forth decided on an Arc'teryx Cerium LT instead.

I got a size Large to accommodate for layers underneath and to fit over my wider hips and it doesn't feel oversized or bulky,my previous size was a Medium and was just a little too snug in my hips.

BEST thing I own!

I bought the down sweater jacket (with no hoody) over a year ago,and have used it for everything possible! Super easy to pack down and bring on hikes,camping,and travel in general!

January 5, 2018

I have not taken this coat off since I bought it

I got this coat about a month ago and wear it everywhere. I wear it in my cold office,on the ski hill and everything in between. I get so many compliments on it and it is super comfortable. I love that Patagonia coats run a little on the bigger size so you can layer underneath.

This is 'THE' jacket

Oh my gosh I cannot say enough good things about this jacket. i am always frozen. I mean completely frozen.

The hood is amazing and makes a nice tight fit around your face so the air doesn't get through the sides. It has a great fit considering how warm it is. It is not big and bulky but fairly streamlined. It is roomy enough to put several layers underneath. I am 5'5' and 120lbs and typically an xs in Patagonia and that is what I bought this jacket in. So I would say it is true to size. Those of you who have issues like me fitting into the nano puff jacket because it is tight across the shoulders-this jacket is not cut like the nano puff. There is plenty of room and I do not feel constricted at all. This is going to be my go to jacket all winter long. I only wish I had bought one years ago so I could have been warm instead of freezing my rear off all the time! Fantastic job Patagonia! You definitely got it right this time!

Disappointing fit

After years of wear & several repairs I retired my old Down Sweater Jacket. Patagonia's fantastic lifetime guarantee on their products provided me with a credit to order a new one.

I loved this jacket,kept me so warm,so light,windproof... but now the XS is too tight in the arms & shoulders but boxy around my middle. The S is huge on me,would not be warm. One of the reasons I love this brand is that they have always cut for strong,athletic women. Now this jacket & all the Caplilene base layers I love are too tight for muscles in the arms & shoulders. Very disappointing. Now it's winter,I don't have a warm coat & am just going to sit on this credit until the sizing changes. 5' tall (or short,really),105 lbs,athletic build.

Down on all the down love

Down is fantastic,it keeps you warm and also packs down so small. This jacket is no different,it packs down nicely into it's internal pocket for storage and up until I washed it after a year,it kept me very warm. However,once I washed it and dried it with tennis balls in the dryer (as Patagonia says to do),it never returned to full loft. I sta... Read Morerted to feel cold around every single stitch and I've been losing down regularly since. The nylon material on the outside is so incredibly sensitive. I feel like I just have to look at it and it gets a hole. As a result,this jacket is no longer in my pack for mountain adventures but instead stays in the car as an extra dry layer for when I get back from a day of ski touring or a jacket for around town. It's been 2 years and if someone asked me if I would buy one of these jackets again,I would sadly have to say no. I'd rather go with a down jacket that has a thicker material on the outside like the Mountain Hardwear version. But really,I'm more likely to go with a thick merino loft jacket next time,even though packability is somewhat compromised,at least I won't ruin my jacket by washing it once.

Great Jacket-but issues with the stitching

I got this jacket as a gift this fall. I brought it out for a trip to Yosemite in October. I love the jacket other than one issue that has been pretty disappointing to me. Cons: The stitching on the sleeves that creates the baffles for the down gets hung on the pocket zippers. The threads are breaking on the forearm and the threads will eventually... Read More unravel messing up the baffles. My husband and sister have this jacket and haven't had this issue,so I am not sure what's up. When I contacted customer service,she recommended keeping the pockets closed. I wasn't a fan of that option,especially when it's cold and I am out cooking or doing other things that I want to warm my hands quickly. She did recommend knotting the threads so they don't pull through more,which seems to help. I'm pretty bummed about it and will probably send the jacket back to Patagonia in the spring to repair,although I think it will just happen again. Pros: The fit is great for me. I am 5'4" and around 140lbs. I got a medium. I have broad shoulders and hips but a narrow waist. The shoulders and hips fit great and the torso doesn't poof out funny. The length is great for me too. If I want it a bit shorter (for a harness) I can use the draw cords to cinch it up. The sleeve length is perfect. The hood is fantastic. I really appreciate the fleece around the face. I hate having my face directly on the nylon. The weight is good too. I am a pretty cold person. I have a heavier Patagonia down for when it gets really cold around town. But in the backcountry,this jacket is perfect with some extra layers (down vest).

This is my favorite jacket (I own several). It is light,but warm and looks great. I'm 5'4",roughy 135 lbs,and typically wear a size 6. I ordered a M thinking it might be too big,but am actually happy with the fit.

Too Long

I have 2 down sweater vests and 2 down sweater hoodies (all XL) pre-2016 style change. It's my go to jacket for everything,from light winter days to frigid days where I'll layer with my down vest. Last month,I bought what I thought was my 3rd down sweater hoody and much to my disappointment,the styling is very disappointing as it was waaa... Read Moreayyy too long! Patagonia,I would love to be a life-long customer (as I have with Merrell & Keen) but unless you redesign your cut OR make a petite alternative,I have to unwillingly move on to another brand.

Love this jacket!

I purchased this jacket a month ago and super happy with my purchase. I bought it to replace a much older version but went with the hood this time. I love the hood because when it's zipped up,it has a nice tight fit so all the warmth stays in.

February 18, 2017


This jacket is truly perfect.. I wear it every day from October to April. Its breathable yet warm so a perfect layer for any outdoor activity. It also packs really small - so very convenient to carry along. All around a super versatile jacket!

February 18, 2017

Great fit and super warm

Great colors and I finally don't have to wear a ton of bulky layers,yet still warm. Wore it standing in a short rain shower and never got wet on the inside and it dried within minutes.

February 13, 2017

Light but warm

I absolutely love this puffy - it packs down small enough to carry on a multi-pitch climbing but it is very warm once you put it on. I run cold I am always shivering so once the shade hits or wind blows,this thing really does the trick!! I got a medium because I like to have layers underneath (its big enough to have a thick fleece under it but I ca... Read Moren also wear just a baselayer underneath).

I love this jacket!

I love this jacket,it is by far the warmest thing I have ever owned. Fits true and is light weight and very comfortable.

Perfect for Montana

I've had my eye on this hoody for a couple years now and finally pulled the trigger. So glad I did! It's the perfect weight for wintertime in Montana,where it can vary from 35 and rain to -10 and wind in the course of a week. I do have to lighten my layers when it's above about 30 degrees,as I get too warm if I'm out hiking,sn... Read Moreowshoeing,or shoveling. The hood is a nice shape and fits over hats comfortably. I'm 5'7" with an athletic build and the medium is just right - roomy enough for movement and layering,without being bulky. I bought it in Big Sur blue,and the color is gorgeous.

She loves it!

We bought this for my MIL and she adores it. Thin and warm,just like her.

The SWEATER part has been lost

I need to replace my Down Sweater Hoody and am so disappointed in the new styling (2015) of this Down Sweater. It isn't a 'sweater' anymore,its now a jacket,and best suits anyone who is long and lean. All the rest of us will remain cold at Summer concerts,camping,bbqs etc. BRING BACK THE DOWN SWEATER HOODY.

February 4, 2017

Big Sur Blue is a beautiful color!

I've received many compliments on this jacket in the short time I've had it. Very comfortable and the hood is perfect for rainy and/or cold days. This is my second Patagonia jacket an I'm very pleased with both.

February 3, 2017

Lightweight warmth

Looks as good as it feels. Lightweight warmth. Comfortable and easy to move in. Love the contrasting zipper color.

February 2, 2017

love it

i bought this jacket because jessica capshaw had it and i love it!! well worth the cost!!

January 28, 2017

Perfect Jacket

I've been wearing my down sweater hoody every day since I got it at the end of the fall,and it has kept me warm and happy. It also packs so well for all of my traveling adventures!

January 28, 2017

Terrific jacket!

This is a terrific down jacket! The sweater has been re-designed,with a bit longer back. The hood is a great addition!

January 27, 2017

Favorite Patagonia Winter Jacket

I have had a few of these jackets and prefer the hoody. You can still wear a beanie under the hood of this jacket. It's windy and snowy here during the winter and the hood keeps your neck warm and out of the elements.

January 22, 2017

I'm in love!

Love,love this down sweater. Bought if for occasional use but find I wear it all the time. I tend to be cold all the time so this jacket has become my 'go-to' jacket.

January 22, 2017

Warm & Lightweight

For Size Reference: SMALL -- I'm 5'9" 140 lbs semi-athletic build and average bust. Bought this at the start of a particularly cold and snowy season in the NW. Love it! I generally buy medium coats and jackets,but after trying the both the Medium and Small with varying methods of layers I ended up keeping the Small because I could s... Read Moretill wear a heavy sweater under it comfortably. I wanted something warm but isn't cumbersome moving about during my daily routine. It's actually pretty light weight but you'll be warm if you layer properly and when you are moving about. Not waterproof,so would advise wearing a shell over it or another coat if it's pouring rain. Go for the rich colors they are gorgeous--I got sulfur yellow!

January 21, 2017

Exceptional jacket

I've been using this jacket daily for a month,and I don't know how I went so long without it. It is exceptionally warm without ever being too hot,and it somehow is also wind resistant,all without weighing hardly anything.

Most Versatile Jacket I've Owned

I bought this for a trip to Trier,Germany and it was great. Felt warm and snug against the cold. It's lightweight and packability was invaluable for convenience and comfort. The extra money spent on the hood was well worth it.

January 16, 2017

Great Fit,Very Warm

I bought this jacket for a trip to Antarctica but was able to test it out here in Oregon during this latest freeze. This jacket is very comfortable and warm.

Outstanding Warmth for Winter

I bought this jacket 2-weeks ago because WA's winter has been very cold. I fly fish in the Winter,and am outside a lot. This coat does very well in temps 20-32 F. It is a big relief over layering multiple shirts and jackets as I was doing before to compensate. I also love the hood because it keeps my head,neck,and face so warm and protected fr...

If there is any chance of rain I am very careful to wear my Patagonia raincoat over this because with water penetration it loses all warmth quickly.

January 12, 2017

Amazing coat

this coat is amazing for everyday wear and for all my extracurricular activities. It's super cute and keeps you warm. 10/10 recomend.

Warmth & not weighty

First Patagonia clothing I've ordered-on recommendation of my daughter! I wanted something really comfortable for driving without a lot of bulk or weight. This has been very satisfactory.

I have two Nano Puffs and decided I needed something warmer sometimes so I got this Down Sweater and indeed it is wonderfully warm! The first time I wore it for a light walk at zero degree temperatures I overheated! I only have two minor issues with the jacket. I wish that the sleeves were a little longer- the Nano Puff I got two years ago had slee... Read Moreves slightly longer than my first and I was ecstatic,but now it seems Patagonia when shorter again. I have very long arms so am a little disappointed. And the inner left pocket is a bit too big. When I put my phone in it,it drops down a little too far to easily get back out with gloves on. I'm sure it is great for storing other things in it,but it had become my go-to phone pocket in the other jackets.

January 12, 2017

Super warm

I purchased this coat before heading to North Dakota in December to be a medic at standing rock. I wore this coat under a waterproof shell while on duty as a medic,withstanding temperatures of -30 in driving snow,and was kept completely warm. I would absolutely recommend this coat and thank Patagonia for excellent customer service.

January 12, 2017

Always the Perfect Warmth

I wasn't sure this was going to be warm enough with how thin it is,but it has been the perfect jacket in any weather. It's extremely comfortable,and I get quite a few compliments on it.

January 12, 2017


I bought this jacket for a trip to Iceland in December. It packs down into a small bundle (that doubled as a pillow on my flight),was toasty warm,easy to add layers underneath and looks super cute.

Very versital

I bought this jacket because my daughter suggested it for a lightweight winter jacket. I love it. I can't believe how comfortable and sufficient.

January 11, 2017

The warmth surprised me!

I bought this coat about 3 weeks ago and at first,I was a bit skeptical... I had only used it in the car and was quite cold and was looking at returning it,but I thought I should give it a good hard run before I decided. I used it while skiing in temps in the teens- single digits and strong winds pushing temps below 0. I layered with a base layer a... Read Morend long sleeve shirt underneath and a ski shell on top.

January 11, 2017

Super warm

I wear this jacket under a Powder Bowl Jacket for downhill skiing. I've been warm even at -20. Love the fit and the look. Good fit in the arm length and shoulders.

January 11, 2017

Awesome jacket

Warm jacket and great quality. Warm in the iMinnesota and Colorado winter.

January 11, 2017

Great product!

I bought this over a month ago and have worn it almost every day since. The jacket is comfortable and warm while being lightweight. The hood coverage is perfect- enough to cover but does not get in the way. Also,the high neck,when fully zipped,keeps out cold and is soft around the neck and mouth.

January 11, 2017

No complaints,I now live in it.

I bought this jacket in the yellow w/blue zips and have worn it just about every day since. It's now broken in beautifully with dirty rubbed into the cuffs. I'd say the temperature range for this baby WITHOUT an under-layer is about 30-50 degrees... any colder and another layer would be advisable. However,this is only if you're livin... Read Moreg in your car like me and you are going to be standing outside for longer periods of the arctic night; if you're just going from your toasty house to your car and onwards my temp rating doesn't really need to be paid much mind. Also,I bought a large,and since we are women and we chat sizing heres some info: Im 5'10" and an athletic 155 lb with a 36" chest and a 28" waist,so a medium was form-fitting and unfortunately short (I've made this mistake before); go with a large. Even if it looks boxy when you first get it it will mold to your body and leave a little room for under-layers.

January 11, 2017

Warm and Comfortable

I bought this for my wife for her birthday and she never takes it off. She'll wear it around the house while she cooks or is just lounging because it is so comfortable/warm. Yeah,it's expensive,but at this rate she's already worn it enough to be a solid investment

January 11, 2017

Keeps me warm and I'm a wimp in the cold!

What a great coat. Living in New England,I seem to always be cold once it hits mid-September through April. Yes,I'm a wimp,but this coat has made life so much easier.

The Best Piece of Clothing I've Ever Owned

So happy with my purchase- it is light,compact and warm. Only wish that it was more water resistant.

great warm to bulk ratio

I love this jacket! Great warmth for the weight and bulk,a staple in my pack for all winter activities! The three zippered pockets are secure and roomy. I'm 5'2,115 pounds,athletic build,small chest and the women's small is a slim fit on me. The medium was much baggier all around so I went with the small.

January 11, 2017

Love it!

It fits really well and on really cold days it is compressible enough to wear under a ski jacket. I wear it everywhere!

January 11, 2017

Perfect Jacket for the Pacific NW!

I love this jacket. I purchased it to get me through the fall/winter here in Oregon. Little did I know I would wear it everyday. Perfect for cool weather and can be layered under a raincoat for wetter weather. Great jacket.

January 11, 2017

overall perfect winter coat

I got this coat a couple months ago and I absolutely love it! I live in Maine and wear it every day with no issues of being cold,even in -5' weather. It's great for everyday wear and is also awesome as a mid-layer under my shell for skiing. Light and compatible while not compromising the warmth. Definitely recommend!

One layer for everything

I've only had the jacket for 3 weeks and it's already stained and dirty because I rarely take it off.

Great jacket

I really love this product,the only part that doesn't make me 100% happy and the reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the down.

Leaving that aside,the jacket fits perfectly based on the size chart,it warms a lot and I love ... Read Morethe hoody. The waist fits better than other jackets,it is extremely light and I love the color variety. Overall a must have for the cold!

Love how lightweight it is

Tried on this jacket two years ago,couldn't take my mind off it! Finally got it the other day. It's thin,warm,and I can layer under and on top of it. I'm 5'4 and 170lb athletic build and was surprised I fit a M,I quite like it!

January 3, 2017

Perfect town jacket or ski layer!

I bought this jacket in December and have worn it everyday since! It has become my new favorite ski layer and I can't wait to take it out into the back country on hut trips. The stylish cut and warm insulation also make it nice for an everyday jacket in Colorado.

My favorite Down Hoody

Bought this after owning a couple of nano puffs and wanted something a little thicker and warmer for a trip to Iceland. Love the feminine cut of this down hoody and the high warm neck it features. Great jacket and will order in another color. Ordered the black in xs. I'm 5'0" 115lbs and fits nice and snug over a sweater.

October 1, 2016

Exactly what I was looking for!

Nice fit,I appreciate the longer length and slimming details. Perfect for fall in Minnesota!

June 6, 2016

I LOVE this jacket

I had this jacket for three years and then my car was broken into and it was taken (lucky for whoever has it). I lasted about two weeks before heading to the Patagonia store to buy a replacement. I was pleasantly surprised that the new version has the softest lining around the neck making it even more snuggly (I didn't think it was possible).

May 15, 2016

Fantastic down hoody, and I love the updated fit

tl;dr first: I love this jacket! Medium warm and blocks wind and light rain; Quality is fantastic (excellent goose down); Style is minimalist, streamlined and modern, and actually pretty cute; Sizing is true, but make sure to check your hip size on the size chart; Really needs a two-way zipper tho, in my opinion. Now for the extended review: I&#x2... Read More7;ve always wanted a Patagonia down sweater, but the fit was always too short and boxy on me. So happy to discover the updated fit this year! I first bought the vest, and loved it so much I decided to get this hoody too in early spring. This hoody is a combination of warm sweater and windbreaker. For me, it's good for cool weather (20-50 F), and will work for winter temps down to single digits (with layers underneath). It turns out to be a useful travel piece too -- keeps me warm on cold airplanes and the hood blocks out some light and noise so I can sleep. The goose down is high quality and surprisingly warm for a relatively thin jacket. The polyester shell blocks wind and light rain, and seems durable enough under light but frequent use so far (still wish it were a thick denier nylon tho). The coverage is excellent - the longer length keeps me covered and warm during outdoor activities where I'm always reaching up or bending down, and the hood is large enough for people with big heads (like me). A couple negatives: I hate the microfiber lining at the chin; and I wish it had a 2-way zipper, since like all hip-length jackets it rides up when you sit down. It's a stylish jacket, and flattering, with a streamlined modern long-and-lean fit. It looks amazingly "put-together" for a down hoody. I don't like the conspicuous logo patch on the chest though, it seems dated and a little tacky (IMO should be moved to an arm or back shoulder). For sizing, make sure to look at the size chart, for chest waist AND hips! The old fit ended at the waist, so hip size was irrelevant. But the new length means you'll have to size up for your hips if (like me) you're bigger on the bottom than the top.

March 28, 2016

on the fence

I just picked up this hoody and I'm on the fence about it. I typically wear a L in Patagonia (5'9,155 pounds,no bust/no stomach). This jacket is really kind of big - I suppose if I were wearing really bulky clothes underneath it would be fine. I happened to get a great price on it,but even so I am not sure if I will keep it. I think the h... Read Moreood is terrific and I love that the sleeves are long enough. But I really don't need a ton of extra fabric around the middle....

Sizing Issues

XS is too big for those who bought XS in the past. The new sizing fits a size bigger which is disappointing for those of us who need the smallest size. I measure almost exact to a Misses XXS and Patagonia XS fit perfectly in past years. The main issue is the change in their sizing. They should have added the XXS across the board with the new change... Read More. XXS has been the new XS for some time now. Also,the description says the jacket has a "contoured fit" but the cut seems odd/irregular in that the upper chest,shoulders and arms are poufy. Might be good for someone with more body in these areas,but the chest measurement in the Sizing Information suggests otherwise and is therefore misleading. The extra room in this area reminds me of a men's athletic fit. The "slightly longer" length hits the middle of the butt (I'm 5'6" and have a regular torso and inseam) so the overall look is drawn and not shapely at all. An adjustment pull at the waist would help to give more shape for those who want it,but there isn't one. These are the main reasons for the 3 stars.

February 9, 2016

Light and warm

I am a down jacket fanatic and I have way too many from several different brands. This one is my new favorite. It's very light and warm and I especially like it because it doesn't bleed down feathers everywhere like some other brands. I bought it in the navy. I found that the hood is warm and fits nicely.

Excellent hood,need a smaller size option

I've searched many brands/fits and this down sweater hoodie has by far the best hood of any jacket at this weight. I don't understand why every other brand has a hood that will only fit properly if you have short hair/wear your hair down. Women's hoods need to accommodate a ponytail/bun. Every hood I've put on sits way back on m... Read Morey head because my ponytail pushes it back. BUT,this hood is deeper than most,which makes it a winner for me. I'm petite,and the XS is still too large/boxy for my frame,so I would recommend offering a next size down or making the coat a bit more fitted,but other than that,I love the jacket. The fleece on the collar is a nice touch - warmer against your face.

Not durable

I ordered this jacket thinking it would be an investment for a long lasting jacket. I was so excited when I got it, it fits perfectly, looks great, and is really warm. I ordered the jacket for everyday wear as well as camping/hiking trips so that I could have a jacket that packs down into a backpack well. It does that, however, the material is SUPE... Read MoreR easy to rip and therefore whenever I pass by anything, it rips and leaks feathers! Ugh! I even sent it back to be repaired, which it was, and then wore it a bit more and it's leaking feathers all over the place! I feel like I have to be careful with it, I have to pay attention when I'm walking through the woods so that it doesn't snag on anything. When I'm hiking, I really don't want to be paying attention to my jacket. So, if you're thinking of this as an active jacket, I would look for a sturdier material. If you are looking for a jacket to take you from your car to inside a building, this is a wonderful jacket.

Best down jacket I've ever owned!

I was hesitant to buy a new down sweater hoody because previous reviewers were unhappy with the new fit, but after I tried it on I knew I had to have it. The new fit is 1000 times better for my body type than the old fit. The extra length is perfect (my old down sweater hoody annoyed me at times because it was slightly too short on my body and cold...

December 17, 2015

Great Sizing, Toasty Warm

No need to worry about the new sizing. Shoulders and hips stayed the same, with a shave off the waist and a tad added to the length. Same great fit with freedom of movement, and the illusion of a more slender profile. What more could an Outdoor Girl want?!! Oh yeah, warmth! All bases covered there.

Longer is Better

For such a great product, this jacket sure has some rough reviews. As a tall woman, I have spent the majority of my adult years having to purchase coats from the men's department.

Nice Jacket if it Fits

Another Patagonia staple of mine extinct. I own 4 women's down sweater hoody jackets all large. I am 5'7, 160, narrow hips but broad shouldered and 38D. I have had no problems with the old style in Large even with a Regulator R1 layer. I even have a 5th in XL that I use for really cold days when I wear a nano jacket and some extra layerin... Read Moreg under it. I live in the down sweater hoody in the winter and on cold beach nights. This new fit almost doesn't zipper over my chest. It is way more fitted in chest and lots longer in length that its even tight in my skinny hips, 37. What gives!! I tried the men's medium and it just makes it in the chest but even the men's is too tight in the hips and long. The nano hoody has the same problem. I did buy a men's medium in the nano hoody and can only wear it with a t shirt under it in cooler summer days or after wind surfing. What a bummer. Guess Patagonia sells more product to a pre-pubescent shaped body. Us bigger body gals have to start looking at Athleta or North Face for that fit. Too bad because the colors are pretty. I can't give it a bad rating because it is a nice jacket and just because they changed the styling doesn't mean it won't be a great fit for someone else. Four stars because the pocket zippers still get stuck and chew the nylon.

May 5, 2015

I'm so sad they've changed the fit.

I have been a longtime lover of Down Sweater Hoodies, and I've raved about them to everyone I know. I'm so sad that Patagonia has changed the fit.

I bought myself this jacket after Christmas, and I am so happy with my purchase. Although it is somewhat expensive, if you can afford it, I'd buy it. It is such a great quality, so warm, and so light. The only thing that is annoying is maybe 3 times, a feather would come out of the jacket. Other than that, I'd definitely buy it again.

I cannot get the new slim fit models of this jacket (and others) to fit. The medium is now too small around my chest and upper back, whereas the large is way to big in the chest. What gives? I was always a medium in just about everything Patagonia. I am still 5'7" 140lb. I am sure the ultra skinny young women enjoy this tight look but it ... Read Morereally stinks for us more normal women. Back it goes.

Awesome all-around jacket for the harsh MN winters

I bought this jacket for my wife this year for Christmas and on the days that it's too cold to wear her Better Sweater jacket, this is her go-to. It's got a fantastic fit and the quality is outstanding.

My favorite jacket

This jacket is super warm, incredibly light, and compressible. Easily stands up to cold Montana weather. Water resistant and cozy. I love I can zip it up around my nose and mouth on sub-zero days. And I'm tall, and the sleeves aren't too short! I had to order up. I've never bought a size medium jacket from any brand, but this ran sma... Read Morell and the medium is perfect.

Ultimate Down

For long, cold winter days on the river (or the mountain, or in town, or on the road...) this is a winner. Far warmer than many other down jackets I've owned, it keeps me toasty while maintaining a trim, feminine silhouette. The sleeves are long enough'glory be'and the body offers good coverage without being bulky. The hood is what m... Read Moreakes it, though'deep enough to offer some serious fluff factor around my face, and the chin area zips up high enough I can really burrow in. I look forward to putting miles in and memories on this piece in the years to come.

Better than ever!

This is my second Down Sweater Hoody and I couldn't be happier with its updates: better zipper, soft mouth lining when zipped fully, more feminine fit, and more durable material. I was in a debate about whether to get the Nano or the Down Hoody, and I'm stoked I went with this one. It's the perfect combination of athletic-performance... Read More wear and night around the town wear. Still very compactible as well. I am 5'7" @145lbs (athletic build), and went with a small. If you wear things on the bigger side go with a medium.

Terrible Fit!!!

Beware, this jacket runs HUGE!! I am an XS in everything patagonia and this jacket is snug in a pea coat style with the main zipper reaching the opposite pockets. That's like 6 inches plus too wide. Unacceptable. Does patagonia want their users to sew buttons onto their jackets for proper closure? If it is zipped correctly its not even warm be... Read Morecause there is so much space for the wind to get in and its supposed to be windproof???!!!

Awesome Durability, excellent comfort

I have had this down jacket for about 2 years now. I have washed it several times and it still holds its loft and warmth. It is such a great jacket for camping, backpacking, Search and Rescue missions, backcountry ski trips--whenever you need some warmth and comfort. I'm a 5'6" 135 lb woman and a Medium works well for me even with la... Read Moreyering.

Best Sweater Hoody so far!

Went to my nearest store to try on this updated version of the popular hooded sweater. It is Patagonia's best fit for women so far. It is much more flattering and slightly longer than previous versions. Do be aware that it is also slimmer, so you may have to go up one size. I am usually an XS in the regular fit but due to my broad shoulders ha... Read Mored to upgrade to a small. Liked it so much that ended up taking one home. Can't wait for winter to kick in to use it!
