super warm and a puffy down jacket
I was so lucky to buy this last large one on the website at a sale price. The color is exactly what I expected and because it's a winter gear, i prefer a larger size (I normally wear M) to cover more inside clothes. It's not heavy but worm, the shell material gives a thick and Wearable feature.
I previously purchased this coat in another color last winter ( weird ocre/orange) and ended up returning it. I thought the buttons might be an issue with gloves and that the hood lacked adjustments. I was wrong- I re-ordered it just recently as I find it hard to find a parka to fit my needs. It is too warm out to really test it yet but Im really d... Read Moreigging this military inspired green. Harkens back to the old N3b parkas. The hood is an excellent neck and chin shroud if like me you get cold in that area. Cuffs are excellent and buttons are no problem for gloves ( I checked.) On top of all that it looks great on!
First and best parka I own
Very stylish thigh length parka. I got the coffee color and love the color. The oversized buttons adds the perfect touch. This also has a elastic sleeve to keep cold draft out. Snorkel is the best feature, especially when wind chills and rain hampers your commute. I would highly recommend this product before it is gone!
* Excellent coverage - full to hips (the 3-in-1 uses a jacket, not a parka for insulation layer but this parka is full length warmth) * Stylish - a lot of compliments on the color, style, and overall composure of this parka * Warmth - unless you pack in multiple layers you won't overheat, but rather you'll be super comfortable in anything... Read More cold (provider you wear something under this) * Performance - 2 layer Gore tex really blocks out the wet! Wind it no match for this hip-length shield either. 44oz but feels lighter and is vs other maker's parka weights * Hood - I happen to love the snorkel hood. If you want it but want peripheral vision then rethink this as you cannot have both. Unzip the parka a bit and the hood won't be snorkel. * Fit - true to size: I'm medium in every Patagonia item - 6' 1" 156lb and fits perfectly. I can layer under this (not that I really need it), but an R1 or R2 or down sweater work great.
Warm and sytlish, but a couple downsides
Really like the look of the jacket, especially buttoned up. I've received multiple compliments. I was warm at a standstill down to about 25F with a light wind wearing just a t-shirt underneath. Below that I layered a nano puff underneath and was more than warm enough at 0F with -20F wind chill (again with no activity). 5'7", 165 lbs... Read More, athletic build, a Small is juuust large enough to layer a flannel, the aforementioned nano puff, and this jacket. Length is great. Two way zipper is appreciated but the bottom one somehow manages to be very difficult to get on track and operate barehanded and essentially impossible with gloves. Like another reviewer mentioned, the elastic cuffs seem a bit loose. A thumbhole in the cuffs would've been better, especially to get the cuffs under a pair of thick gloves that you'll obviously be wearing in the intended temperatures of this jacket. My main complaint is the supposed "handwarmer" pockets are useless because they are in front of, rather than inside the insulation. You will absolutely regret if you forget your gloves. Presumably this is to optimize their production of this jacket and the 3-in-1 version, but this quite frustrating especially at this price point. I like it the hood, but of course it comes with a complete loss of peripheral vision. However, it's very warm and keeps the wind out well. Overall happy with the parka, but these missed details make it feel like I overpaid.
The Socially Acceptable Way to Wear a Sleeping Bag
This coat is insanely warm but not OVERLY boxy/bulky despite its armor-like insulation. It's actually really stylish for how insulated it is. The snorkel hood makes hats and scarves and all the other usual winter accessories superfluous. It's already gotten into the single digits Fahrenheit here in Milwaukee and this jacket has stood the ... Read Moretest just fine. As for fit, I'm 6'0" and 190 lbs, and this Medium fits me perfectly.
sups cute but...
The look of this coat is super cute and the coat itself does keep you pretty warm in cold temps. though, here are some suggestions that would make it EVEN warmer: longer, tighter sleeve cuffs(with thumb loop—this keeps them secure), replace the cell phone pockets with fleece pockets for additional hand warmth, velcro not buttons :( for ease even th... Read Moreough the buttons look super cute. Here are some things i absolutely LOVE about the jacket: the hood—controversial, I know, but the mere size of its designed helps keep you warm even when its not on—, the secret wallet pocket left of the zipper, and the sturdiness of the buttons. Y'all did it right!
Couldn’t believe a coat could be this warm
After reading the previous reviews I decided to wear my new parka outside to test it out . It was 35 degrees out, I only had a t shirt under the parka . I was SO WARM!! I couldn’t believe a coat would keep me so warm . It was like it wasn't cold out. When I zipped up the snorkel hoody it was like icing on the cake . I was even warmer . It’s al... Read Moreso very stylish . I am only 5”5 with broad shoulders and an athletic build . I bought a medium. The jacket didn’t make me have a square shape like a lot of jackets do on me. The color is great as well .
Beyond my expectations (Part 1)
I was on the hunt for a warm and stylish jacket that could handle the Swedish north (-30 to -40 Celsius). Can’t give you a review on that yet but I will get back to you when I have (Part 2). After reading tons of reviews on this jacket and a few outdoor magazines’ benchmarks on the warmest/best winter jackets I got convinced this was the one. My ... Read Moreexpectations was high even before I got it and now after a few days use - my expectations are even higher for Part 2. Walking this jacket with just a t-shirt under on my way to work. So comfy it feels like walking around in a premium sleeping bag. Have gotten many complements for it and every detail is so well thought through. Buttons are robust but still easy to open/close, pockets in the right places with zippers than runs smoothly and extremely comfortable just in the right places. I’m 184 cm long, 92 kg, wide chest and average belly and was recommended Large to 52%. Was a little worried it would be tight over the shoulders (normally that’s the case for me with Patagonia jackets), however it fits perfectly and I have room for a hoodie under. Glad I trusted the size guide, XL would’ve been too large. I’ll get back to you on Part 2...
A bit pricey but a very stylish and warm jacket. After freezing every time I visit the in laws in Minnesota during the winter I thought I should invest in a proper winter jacket. Haven't had a chance to face the elements with the jacket but I am confident it might give me a fighting chance. Immediate warmth as soon as I put on the jacket. I we...

Consider adding graphic patterns to Parka fabrics
Patagonia is always tasteful and minimalist and I respect that, but I think the kind of fabric patterns found on the Synchilla Pullovers could be applied to the Parka lineup. One of the biggest reason I have yet to buy a top-tier Patagonia parka is that **all the options are incredibly drab**. Of course, bland colors should always be an option for ...
