Excellent fit and look!
This coat is exactly what Ive been looking for - its a great length, fits well (enough room to layer, but still looks slim), and can go with pretty much any look. One thing to note is that its probably not a coat for temps below 30-40 degrees without a good sweater on - Ive had to use layering for the colder Chicago nights!
Stylish & Rugged
This is a solid winter parka. Not too thick or thin and incredibly warm. I originally ordered a medium, which fit, but wasn't quite exactly right. I'm glad I went up a size to the large because its the perfect length to keep me warm and covered with the mobility to hike and ski freely. Pockets are great and the sherpa is the most comforta... Read Moreble thing ever. Would totally recommend.
Very nice coat
This is a very nice coat. Warm enough to wear on its own for most occasions, at least where I live, and light enough that you can layer under it without becoming too bulky to move. The color is beautiful, the hardware seems durable, and best of all, it fits great. I am 6'2", 214lbs, and I purchased a 2X. The sleeves are the perfect lengt... Read Moreh, and I can bend my arms without them riding up to my elbows. It blocks wind very nicely, zips up tight with the wind cover, and the hood stays put. I am very satisfied with the coat, and will certainly purchase from Patagonia again.
This is the only article of Patagonia gear that I've ever been let down by. I'm in Boston and this jacket is just not up for cold weather. There's virtually no insulation in the sleeves and my arms get cold within 5 minutes of being outside. Today I took my dogs for a walk in 28º weather with a t-shirt and heavy flannel underneath an... Read Mored had cold elbows and arms within 5 minutes of leaving the house. I don't get cold easily, in the past I have worn the same thing under my Down Sweater or Nanopuff and have been comfortably warm so it is frustrating to have my "warmer" jacket underperform so woefully. It's a nice looking jacket but seems to be designed for fashion instead of function. If you live down south and think that 50º is cold, this is for you, otherwise look elsewhere.
Warm, Comfortable, & Stylish!
I purchased the buckwheat color of the Patagonia Men's Isthmus Parka about a month ago and couldn't be happier. It's warm (7/10--perfect for casual wear or hiking), comfortable, and stylish. I am 6'1" and 180 pounds and a medium fit perfectly. The color is true to the photo provided (a nice yellow-ish color). Very happy wit... Read Moreh this purchase.
I had to size up in this jacket. Now everyone has a different body shape/type so sizing up may not be needed for everyone. For reference, I own a silent down in XL and a stretch nano storm in XL. However, in a down sweater or nano puff I need XXL. I dont like my jackets fitting like gloves on me. In XL this jacket made me think "this is a very... Read More nice jacket" but in XXL it was "this jacket is amazing". VERY warm. 100% warmer than my silent down. With just a tshirt under this jacket I can be very comfortable to 20 degrees, with my silent down I would say 30 would be the lowest before Id want a long sleeve under it. Ive worn this jacket while it was actively snowing and while playing in the snow with my child. It was 14 degrees out and I had a therm long sleeve under the jacket, the jacket kept ALL moisture out but I did manage to work up a little sweat just by very minimal amount of activity. This jacket will keep me and you warm to any temps without needing a bunch of under layers. This jacket is by far one of the best winter jackets Patagonia has to offer.
Comfortable and Warm
I am 6 feet tall and weighing 191 lbs. That puts me on the overweight side. This Isthmus parka fits well when I only wear one layer underneath it. That said, it keeps me warm in outdoor temperatures as low as 30° F with only one shirt underneath it. I have absolutely enjoyed my purchase so far.
Perfect for Portland winter
Just right balance to stay warm and dry in drizzle and rain. Hand warmer pockets are comfortable and flap pockets are perfect for stuff like keys, dog bags, and a hat. The hood is cut just right to block the rain but not your vision. Plus it looks good, understated technical yet doesnt look like mountain gear.
Keep Warm, Pack Light
I was very surprised to find how light the jacket was when it first arrived (I thought it would be a little puffy). However, my initial skepticism was put to rest as soon as I took it outside. For the test run, I wore it outside for about an hour with the real feel around 20 degrees F. Underneath, I wore only a thin long sleeve shirt, but neverthel... Read Moreess stayed toasty the whole time. The outer material did a nice job blocking the wind, and seems to be fairly water resistant. Probably not going to wear it skiing, but its great for walking, hiking, and casual wear. As with most all Patagonia gear, it looks great with a minimalist design, and the furry inside completes a nice, classy look.
Perfect for the uk - love it
I am quite particular about my winter jackets. I’ve been through a few !! I measure every jacket with the same test, can I wear a T-shirt underneath, stay dry, keep warm and look great. Uk winter weather damp, cold and windy so this jacket needs to deliver and it does just that. My first Patagonia and I can’t see me switching brands again.
Tight Under Arms & Short
Another great looking jacket! In our case, the fit was off. Wearing a fleece underneath, the jacket was too tight under the arms. For this reason, we will return it. For a man of 6' 0", it was shorter than wanted. It is a handsome, well-conceived jacket. We are sorry it didn't work for us.
We appreciate you taking the time to give us some feedback on our Men's Isthmus Parka. We're sorry to hear that the size you purchased did not fulfill your needs. Please note, if you'd like measurements on the length of any of our jackets, our [Customer Service Team](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) is happy to provide those to you!
Really wanted to love this jacket
Fit is great, the pile on the interior is super soft, and while its not SUPER warm, it is if you layer. The only reason I would not recommend is a bit nitpicky, while the fleece pile is super soft, this is also its downfall. I found it matting around the back and neck within a season of use. While the jacket itself will likely last a number of year... Read Mores, I anticipate the matting only getting worse and because of the light color of the fleece, it is very visible and looks like I am wearing an feral dog around my neck. I'd much rather see a stronger fleece lining that may not be as soft, but will keep its shape for more than a couple years.
Thanks for taking time out to leave us a review. We value your feedback and are sorry to hear you weren't satisfied with the fleece lining of the Isthmus Parka. Please know you are welcome to return this as it is covered under warranty given your situation. We welcome you to check out our [Men's Isthmus Jacket](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-isthmus-jacket/26990.html?dwvar_26990_color=OWBR) as it has a similar style and feel to the parka, minus the fleece lining. Cheers!
INFURNO JACKET 2005
The Infurno Jacket was also made out of recycled plastic bottles. It was infinitely softer, much more compressible, the pile was much thicker and warmer and softer, the forearm sleeves were not snug and uncomfortable as this version... The sweep was perfect in a size smal -not tight as this version. 3 stars due to quality. Years ago you transitione... Read Mored the unmatched M's Das Parka into an unwearable cardboard jacket. Incomprehensible why you change jackets (profits-bottom-line?) that are as perfect in their performance as Alex Magos. When I wrote the review about your new Das Parka "version" years ago, I received "68 likes!" I thought your designers would reconsider. No luck. Patagonia never goes back to basics with a phenomenal product if it's been discontinued.
No such thing as too many pockets
Used daily for 10K steps and recreational hikes during below-freezing weather. The number and utility of the pockets allows for a pack to be skipped without leaving behind any essentials. Plenty of dedicated space for multiple pairs of gloves, hat & balaclava, phone, sunglasses, and pull-on ice cleats. The hood may be slightly too generous, whi...

Hope to see this design continue in future seasons with other insulation options and even more pockets.
Warm, Comfy - Killer build
This fur lined parka has been the solution to a lot of my cold days. I originally bought it to replace one jacket, but it ended up replacing a couple instead because of its versatility. Some nice touches : the DWR coat actively works and beads rain quite well, the zippered hood attachment is clutch, and the pockets are large. Fit wise, I’m 6’3 but ... Read Moreskinny so a large was perfect. Usually I’d rep an XL just to compensate for length but Patagonia XLs are very wide and boxy if you don’t have the body mass to fill them with. I’d recommend buying this jacket if you’re just over those cold city temps at night (loves 30 degree weather) and you want something fashionable yet technical.
Overall good piece. Just warm
Overall good piece. Just warm enough for 0 to 5 deg. Mainly for casual wear. Nice removable good option. Hood feels a bit small. Hand warmer pockets feel a little out of position if you are coming from other jackets. Too bad there's no fleece for the sleeves, that could make it just a tad warmer.
Decent, not the best
The external material on the jacket is thinner than expected and not as bulky/canvas-like as You tend to see with heavy-duty/rugged parkas. I’m sure it’s fine for many people, just not what I expected. The fit was a bit more snug than other similar sized pieces from Patagonia. Specifically around the waist, it was trimmed in more than you would exp... Read Moreect on a parka jacket. Returning it...

Not warm enough
Wanted a non bulky mid winter coat and this is not warm enough.
Hi Jessica, we're sorry this wasn't warm enough. Please feel free to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it if you were looking to do so, but haven't already. Unfortunately, non-bulkiness is something that has to be sacrificed if you're looking for a really warm parka.

Fits well and works great
I always have a hard time finding jackets small enough for me so that I don't lose most of my heat. This jacket fits perfectly and doesn't impede my movement either. It's warm enough, though the sleeves seem to be much less warm and are noticeably thinly lined. The outer fabrics seems to be a higher quality than similar jackets I hav... Read Moree tried on. Even though it is a parka, it's not that long which I like, and I love that I can use the second main zipper to make the front open more, which helps me get into pockets and move my legs more.
Pros: - Fur on the inside is soft and cozy - Outside shell is water resistant Navy color is nice Cons: - It’s just shell + inner fur, but no inner lining so it’s not as warm on a really cold (30 degree) day as I was hoping - Wish there were an inner pocket in the chest area or something to hold extra items (like a scarf or a document). - the ou... Read Moreter front pockets are where you’d naturally put your hands but they’re a little too high for that to be comfortable, and they also are just shell fabric so it’s not at all a warm place for your hands - it’s really expensive! So having spent that amount of money on a jacket, you’d hope design / quality flaws like the above wouldn’t be present
Hi Eric, thanks for taking the time to write us a review! We're really sorry to hear that you're disappointed with the parka. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed you're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return).
170lbs, 5'11". Very well made. Perfect for your New England falls and winters. Handles heavy rain and wind very well.. You will probably need to layer up though. I ordered a large. Its a little to long, but fits my back and my arms, with some room for layering. If you want a form fit, order one size down.
Great looking jacket / terrible sizing
Loved everything about the jacket, but the sizing was terrible. Bought a large, was way to big. Returned and bought a medium, was too tight across the shoulders. I am 6'1" and 190 lbs with an average build. I tried so hard to make this jacket work, but in the end it was not working at all.
Great look / very narrow / not very breathable
I like the parka. It is well constructed, the design is great, and the materials look high quality. I find the fit a bit narrow at the bottom, but the one size up is too long in the arms / torso. My 5'8" feels shorter every year. The jacket is warm. Plenty warm for sub zero temperatures if you wear another layer (like a wool shirt) unde... Read Morerneath. But... the jacket is not very breathable. For this reason, I don't think it is suitable for anything but light activity. E.g. good for waiting for the bus in winter, but not so great for raking leaves. I don't know how I would compare it to the industry standard, but I find it far less breathable than my previous, very warm (but now worn out), parka of 12+ years. I know making clothes out of recycled plastic is good for the planet ... but I miss the natural fibers of my previous jacket. All in all, I rate this 5 stars on style, 5 stars on comfort, 4 stars on fit, 3 stars on breathability.
Only one thing to become perfect parka.
Overall, this is the best parka I've ever had. Fitting, Style, Versatility, Material are on top rank. Only one thing that is its weakness is warmer pockets. It should be fleece lined since added weight is negligible (this is not performace jacket) while added feeling will be much more appreciated. Hope to see this come true.
My "go to" jacket
This jacket is perfect, its the right blend of technical, rugged and casual. fits really well, and has a lot of pockets to hold a bunch of stuff. It keeps me pretty warm, but I wouldn't recommend this jacket for extreme temperatures. I've had mine for about a year now and my only complaint is that the "fur" inside starts to get ... Read Moreslightly matted around the butt, and areas of friction. Other than that, it's just incredible.
I love this coat! I was on the fence about whether it would be warm enough and it has kept me plenty warm down to 30 degrees. I expect it to keep me warm down to 15. It is the most comfortable coat I have ever worn and it looks great! Every time I put it on it is like wearing a down blanket!
An awesome jacket for everyday use
This jacket is well worth the money, its nicely made, with good attention to detail and stitching that will hold up to daily use. Its also very warm, I was surprised at how warm it was given how light it is. I have been using the jacket for a few weeks now, and so far its been great for walking the dogs in the cold mornings. It doesn't trap my... Read More sweat despite having a really nice warm soft lining. Its also water resistant, so its been great to have for the cold rain we are getting. The arm pockets are placed perfectly for me, so I'm very comfortable walking and standing up outside. It also has great wind resistance, I don't feel any wind through the jacket at all, and the hood works really well. Normally I would have to pair my old coat with a hat to keep my head warm, however the hood on this jacket is more then enough. I am very happy with the fit, and the length of the jacket as well. I would absolutely buy this again. Only cons are keeping the inner lining clean, it doesn't run all the way down the arms, so that helps. The pockets are nice and deep, with plenty of storage for phone, keys etc. Overall I'm super happy with the jacket, we will see how well it holds up. My previous jacket worked well for 10 years or so, and I am now using it as my coat for yard work, etc.
Bring pack the zip pockets!
The jacket itself is great - tuff, and burly beyond its weight - this jacket is a keeper. However, the biggest issue is that it no longer has the aesthetic and functionally prefereavle zip pockets that it had a few years ago. Patagonia, please bring these back! They were easy to access when riding a bike, and so on and so forth. If this new version... Read More of the jacket could revert to old pocket design... it would be a 5 star
Bought this jacket for myself as a birthday gift in November and after having used it for a little over 2 months already,I am really glad I did.

Great Jacket,Highly Recommend
I ordered this jacket in the green Med,5'10 170. When I got it I didn't think it would be warm enough to hold up against a New England winter without two solid layers. I was totally wrong. Tried it in 20-degree weather with just a flannel shirt on underneath and completely comfortable. 9 degrees and below base layer under it is all that i... Read Mores needed. Keeps the cold out for sure. Only two minor changes I would make to it. First,if anyone from Patagonia reads this,I would add a piece of fabric(fleece) on the inside at the top of the zipper. So your lips don't have to feel the cold metal zipper when it's freezing out. Second,the two side-entry handwarmer pockets could be a little bit deeper. Other than that solid buy. Totally recommend
First Patagonia purchase
I've had coats before and I've been weary of buying a more expensive coats than the ones I've owned. When I put on my parka i fell in love. It takes a beating. It's warm it hold all of my small gear.

I bought this as a sort of multipurpose jacket for the fall-spring,expecting that I could stick it over a Patagonia down sweater and be weatherproof in a Massachusetts winter. I bought mine at 50% off and I'm still not convinced that it was necessarily a worthwhile investment. It looks decent enough and adventure-y but it's not terribly w... Read Morearm by itself,despite the pile fleece,and since I didn't read the description carefully it's only water-resistant,not H2No waterproof. So if you walk a distance in a reasonable amount of rain it will get soaked through. So I end up only wearing it in 20% of weather conditions,when it's slightly cold and only slightly rainy. I ended up keeping it just so I have another jacket but this is something that doesn't really have a raison d'etre. If you can find the Tres 3 in 1 Parka that would be a better investment. I should mention that a M fits very nicely at 6'0" 190lb.

Style and function
I have only had this for about a month but have worn it constantly. Perfect for weekend day hikes and chilly morning work commutes. True to size. Got the red as it was more cost effective.

Great for non-severe falls/winters
I bought this parka because I recently moved to SF and needed something that would withstand wind,rain,and cold (by SF standards).

At first glance,it's easy to be taken aback by how red it is in person,but it's actually nice to have something that's not m... Read Moreuted grey or black,and it's definitely won me over with how practical and comfortable it is. One thing that surprised me was how mobile it allows you to be - I never feel restricted in the waist or shoulders,which sometimes happens with baggier jackets. I also really appreciate the amount of pockets on the parka,it's nice to have more than enough space. Something about the design of the hood also makes it stay comfortably on my head without it slipping off in the rain or restricting visibility. It definitely keeps me comfortably warm during the colder days or nights when commuting or walking around with just one layer underneath. It hasn't rained much this year so I can't speak to the water resistance. I think small is the perfect size for me in my lanky-ish frame (6',165lb).
LOVE this jacket. Super warm. DWR works very well. I wouldn't wear it in a super heavy down pour, but it's great for walking short distances in the rain (under a mile). It's my everyday winter coat right now and I love it. Super comfortable, and has a classic non "technical" look to it which I prefer. Highly recommended.
Extremely durable cool weather coat
I have had this coat for two years. THis is a really fantasitc coat for wearing in cool, windy, or damp conditions. I bought the coat to be used in very cold weather (<25 F) without additional layers, but unfortunately, its better suited for temperatures in the 30-40 F range. The sleeves are realtively narrow and not quite wide enough to comfort... Read Moreabley fit a thick fleece or down layer underrneath. The center of the jacket along the ziopers has no insultation and this is really noticeable at low temperatures. The bomb-proof nylon shell holds up to barbed wires and thorn bushes without tears. The coat does a fantastic job at blocking wind and its highly water repellent if DWR is applied regularly. The lined hood is incredibly comfortable and warm. The jacket also has an internal drawsting located slightly above the waist which helps trap air. The newer version has chest pockets with flaps on the top. The older version has two vertical zippered pockets which i find to be much more ergonomical. The fit of this coat is not ideal for me, but it probably works well for most people. I have a 44" chest and 34" waist. With a single layer underneath, the medium size fits perfectly at the waist and is wearable, but slightly too small in the chest and shoulders. The large fits me with a little extra room in the chest and too much extra volume at the waist. I would give the coat 5 stars if not for the lack of insulation along the front zopper and the narrow sleeves.

I for one can't believe how many high-fives and double finger gun points from super cool dudes with awesome beards saying, "pretty sweet jacket dude" i have gotten in the past week alone.
