Ms Reversible Woolyester Pile Jacket

True To Size
April 3, 2023

Should Have read reviews first (Itchy and Tight when reversed)

This is my first Patagonia product and I really wanted to love it but now I see why it was on sale. I bought this to replace my lost north face I've been wearing for over 10 years but this wont work for me. It's advertised as reversible which I liked but it is unwearable with the fleece side in. Without long sleeves it is incredibly itchy... Read More on your arms and is also very snug when revered. If this wasn't advertised as reversible it would be ok but I would still miss my north face with the pit vents and all zippered pockets so I don't loose my goods. I will be returning this product.

Thanks for the review, Sean. We're sorry about the fit issues you encountered with this jacket. If you're looking for something comparable we recommend the [Men's Reversible Silent Down Fleece Jacket]( It will be warmer since it includes down insulation, but it's still worth checking out!

A great but flawed jacket

So far this is a great jacket and I mainly wear it with the polyester shell on the outside face. It's lightweight, fit is good, the zipper is YKK, the high pile woolyester fleece keeps me warm with only a single long sleeve cotton shirt underneath, the tightness of the elasticized bottom hem is gentle enough that I don't have to pull do... Read Morewn the jacket each time I raise my arms, the polyester shell resists strong gusts of wind and sheds mild rain or snow in the climate of southern Canada around the Great Lakes and I find the overall design aesthetic of the jacket visually pleasing. But the jacket has a few flaws, one of them being rather personally critical. The first is that the high pile woolyester fleece is sewn too close to the jacket's zipper that it can get stuck in the zipper teeth and slider as I pull it up and I have to tug the slider away from my chest while pulling so the fleece doesn't get stuck in it and prevent me from zipping up the jacket. The second but awkward flaw is that when wearing the jacket with the weather-resistant polyester shell as the outer face, there is a small white tag on the back protruding from the neck of the jacket which has Patagonia's logo, the jacket's size and country of origin printed on it and there's no way to hide it except for cutting it off. Why put it there? And the biggest flaw that bothers me the most is the pockets. Pockets are essential for me and I had recently returned an Isthmus Hoody jacket because the pockets were not lined with insulation and felt so uncomfortable, weak, cheap and cold and to my disappointment this jacket has the same problem but the only saving grace is that they are slightly larger. Like the Isthmus Hoody Jacket, the specs and features section on this jacket's product page boasts the same misleading feature that they are "handwarmer pockets" that "protect hands in cold conditions" when they're more like refrigerators because they have no insulation and are made with paper thin sheets of polyester that keep your hands COLD. Why make a warm jacket and then cripple it with pathetic pockets? If this is a cost-saving measure to keep the price down, it's a terrible one, because I'd rather pay a bit more to have pockets that are actually insulated with something otherwise it would not have been worth buying at all without the clearance sale. Nonetheless, I'll keep the jacket and continue wearing it until I find something better to buy from Patagonia near the end of the year.

My arms are a little big and this dress of arm parts that not elastic. So If your arms are thick, I recommended to choose a little bigger size because the arm bending little difficult.

Great quality

The fleece material facing out, jacket fits great. Fleece material facing in, jacket fits snug. Then again, I am not super skinny either.

Uncomfortable material

The color and style is fine. The faux wool is horribly uncomfortable. As soon as it hit my skin it was extremely itchy. It's not soft at all. Wearing the wool on the outside is fine and fits much better, but if you turn it inside out where the wool is on the inside, it gets tighter and itchy. I wanted to like this product a lot.

Warm & Stylish

I love the reversible feature which makes the fleece pair with almost any outfit. Its warm and heavy which is great if its my only layer. The only drawback would be that its difficult to fit underneath a coat (when skiing for instance) leading me to use older products which is a bit of a bummer.

2 for 1

I really like this coat. I've had it for a couple months now and it's done well so far in Wisconsin winter. I've been comfortable in walks below zero and I've worn it in a lot of different situations. I wish the pockets had a more cozy lining, but I've usually got gloves on when I'm wearing it so not a big deal.

I've been looking for a new mid-coat to have for the season, and this fit so well! It's much warmer than I've expected it to be and it's very cozy, sometimes going the whole work day with this on.

Looks cheap

I never intended to use both sides if this reversible jacket. I wanted to use the fleece side for the interior, but the jacket seems to be a size smaller when you do that.

I like it!

I wrote this because I saw so many folks kinda' dissing this jacket. The woolyester side has a bit of a wool itch to it at first, but after a bit of wearing I am having no problem at all. I really like it, I always wear medium in Patagonia jackets and that is the same with this (5'10"/155lbs). Both sides are no problem at all in my o... Read Morepinion. I have an ancient Pile Glisade reversible that this is related to and I understand the itchy comments, but I also agree with the idea that after a bit of wearing the fleece side is not any bother at all. About the only thing I'd add is to have put zippers on the side pockets, both sides. That would allow me to keep items, wallet, phones, etc. without worrying they might slip out - don't change the pocket size though as the size is great. Cowabunga, Tom

Very nice jacket, sizing is a bummer for me

I ordered this jacket previously in XL but reluctantly returned it because the sizing. With the wool lining facing outwards and the nylon facing in, it fit perfectly. However, with the wool lining inwards it felt like a size too small, it was TIGHT! I have larger than normal chest and shoulders though, an avg build guy probably doesnt run into this... Read More problem nearly as much. The furry lining facing inwards is what makes this jacket VERY warm. Fuzzy side out for warmer temps. I re-ordered this jacket again in XL and XXL. Fuzzy side inwards with XXL is perfect and fuzzy side out is too big. While it is reversible, seems I have a choice to make on which way I want to wear the jacket to decide which size to keep. This is a super nice choice for winter weather

This jacket has the itchiest lining I've ever felt from Patagonia. I was hoping the sherpa would be like any other other sherpa products they have. But something is off about it. I got this jacket in two different colors to try on. And both of them are uncomfortable on the skin. The whole point is to have a reversible jacket. But the sherpa li...

Bought this for my husband, he loves it! Only negative is the Sherpa material is a bit itchy. We thought it wouldve been more soft. Overall its a great jacket

Not a good-looking jacket

This jacket fit well, but it was kind of ugly. The fleece side looked cheap and was very itchy to the skin. It reminded of shaggy, industrial carpet form the 70s. The nylon side looked decent, but the way it was stitched, I could foresee these stitches getting caught and pulling out due to normal wear and tear. There should've been more pocket...

Warm - Weird Sizing

This jacket has a solid warmth to it, also breathes well w/ the fleece turned inward, slightly itchy, but not overly so. The neck zips up comfortably and has great coverage up to alamos my ears, a massive plus considering it has no hood. The techie face i rarely use on the inside because its warmer having the fleece turned in, but for being flexibl... Read Moree in movement and ease of putting on or taking off the jacket, the reversible is a great feature to have. The sizing is pretty strange, ordered a size up from my usual - Medium- and got a Large instead (am 5ft 9 in tall and weigh 130 Lb). The Large has sleeves barely long enough and is equal to many other Medium jackets and shirts from Patagonia. The torso is pretty massive and will have to hem it down a bit to attain the proper fit. Its a really warm jacket, has solid design and is comfortable and easy wearing. Please be sure to order a size up, because it runs small in all but torso diameter. Thanks guys!

Fall and Spring coat for wearing to work and casual wear

Very happy with this coat so far. It is not thin - due to the fleece. So far I have only worn it with the fleece inside as a liner and have been satisfied. Suits it purpose well

I really wanted to make this jacket work since it looks great, but I couldn't get passed how itchy it is. I couldn't wear it with a short sleeve because it bothered my arms too much.

The fleece is itchy

It's a handsome jacket and keeps me very warm. I like having the choice of reversing it. The fleece is itchy on bare arms so only wearing a t-shirt is uncomfortable. I either reverse it or wear another layer.

This jacket came in a beautiful blue color. I was drawn to it because its reversible. Although the brown woolyester side was incredibly itchy.

Hi Katherine, thank you for submitting this review. We're so sorry to hear you experienced this kind of reaction! We haven't been hearing about other customers having this experience.

First, I thought by ordering a large it might be a bit small on me. This not only fits it has a bit of room for layering.

Runs small

I own at least 10 Patagonia pieces of clothing in a 2X. They've all fit fine except this item and a Downdrift jacket. Both are recent purchases and I hope it doesn't mean Patagonia is making things smaller now.

September 22, 2022

Great all-purpose jacket

I absolutely love this jacket. It's comfortable, warm, versatile, and the borealis colour-way has a nice retro look. I use it as both a casual everyday sweater and warm under-layer for colder days. No complaints -- I'll be taking it with me wherever I go.

September 22, 2022

Really Warm

The jacket is really cool how it inner-swappable. However, when you wear the fleece part, it feels like the jacket is scratching your arms. Overall, its a great buy, but that was the only thing I didn't like.

This review is based on

This review is based on a test fit while in my house. I have not worn it out in the field. First and foremost, this jacket is a very heavily insulated garment best suited for wearing post-activity such as walking home during winter in Wisconsin after a game of hockey or tending a late-night fire on a single-digit night. I would only wear this produ... Read Morect while working, such as collecting wood, if the temperatures were sub-zero. For this reason, I will probably be wearing some combination of base layer(s) when donning this product. That is the problem. While the product description states it is reversible I was uncomfortable wearing this jacket with the fuzz on the inside and over a button-down work shirt. Too tight a fit! Wearing it over a flannel shirt would be impossible. However, the fit is much looser if the slick side is worn on the inside. I vote no on it being reversible! The material and construction of the garment are as expected of Patagonia, excellent. I will probably store the jacket in my truck to use in the event of a significant delay and related bivy. Perfect use!

Wears like a hay fever

The Sherpa lining is scratchy, ornery, and everlasting. It feels like you had a good lining and then lightly singed the ends before selling it to customers.

Great Reversible Jacket

Ordered a large and fit like i was expecting it to fit. Its super warm. I love the red/gray color combo. If there was one fault it is that the fuzzy inside is kinda scratchy. But honestly who cares. Love the jacket.

March 7, 2022

Really nice, but snug

I always buy large size jackets from Patagonia. This is the only one that has fit so snugly. Maybe because the fleece is so thick? (This last is not a complaint; I love the fleece lining.

This is by far the warmest and most versatile jacket I have owned, and for someone who rarely, if ever, reviews products, I feel compelled to write this review. If you weigh about 130 lbs on 5'6" frame and have a lean build, this size (Men's XS) fits perfectly with room for a heavy baselayer or a light one and a shirt. The recycled w...

I would rate it warmer than my 800 fill down winter jack. It is bulkier, however, and not compressible, so I would think twice before taking it on a long backpacking trip. The reversible feature is great (its like flipping your undies inside out when you are loath to do laundry - just joking!) I have even been complimented on it by my fellow swimmers after a skins dip in the San Francisco Bay. It is definitely pricey and I would be sad if it were stolen, but till then, I'm looking forward to many cozy seasons ahead.
