Very comfortable and warm
Got a size medium. I have a larger chest and broad shoulders, womens clothes tend to run small on my upper body and big on my lower body. I am 5foot 2inches and 130 pounds. The medium fit my upper body well. I can wear a long sleeve shirt under the jacket and it still zips with adequate room for my arm and shoulder movement. I am short and the jack...

Patagonia Fails Tall Women
For years I bought Patagonia jackets and loved them but in the last 5 years I have found Patagonia fails athletic tall women. First, the coat is too short even though its a large and second, the shoulder/arm length is too small. The body of the coat is very large and not flattering. Patagonia, please start making coats for tall women and make space... Read More for shoulders!

Returns can be made to your local Patagonia-owned retail store or through our online return portal. Please don't hesitate to contact our Customer Service team if you have any questions or concerns. We're happy to help!
I absolutely love this jacket, and am so glad that I bought it. I love the green color, and it is super warm without being overly bulky.

My perfect coat
I bought this coat to replace one I had for 10 years. I picked it because I like the cut and the light blue. I used the size guide and it recommended the small, but I wanted room to fit layers underneath. The medium is a perfect fit with or without the extra layers. I love the way it looks on me, and its so warm. I have nothing bad to say!
Im 5ft1, 115lbs and got a medium because xs and s were all sold out and I really wanted the darker green color.

The jacket i have been searching for
This jacket is seriously the jacket Ive been dreaming of. Its perfectly warm, has a flattering fit, and the material is good quality- if I snag myself on a tree branch Im confident this jacket wont rip- which I feel is hard to find nowadays! This is my first Patagonia product, long awaited- it was on sale and they ran out of my size so I took a ris... Read Morek and sized down- which is honestly for the best because it is quite bulky and I think a size s wouldve looked too boxy on me. An xs leaves room for a simple base layer. I do wish the exterior pockets had zippers, but there is an interior pocket that does which makes up for it. Im so so happy I took the leap and purchased the jacket, cant wait to wear it for any chilly day outing, be it my morning commute or a snowy hike.
Warm and Great for Travel
I purchased this coat for my daughter for traveling where the temperature was forecast to be single digits in the low and a high in the 20s. The down content is really good and it kept her warm without being too bulky. It also packs very well. It is also comfortable for wearing in the snow and warmer temperatures without making the wearer hot. This... Read More was a great purchase and she loves the green color and hood.
Very warm water repellent
I got the wavy blue in M. Fits great, is super warm and not as puffy as you might expect. It is also water repellent, haven't worn it in heavy rain tho, it took on prolonged drizzle very well. Only thing is that the color isn't as greyish blue as it seems. Not that i mind it. Over-all very happy with it so far.
Very happy with purchase
Decided to try this jacket since I was in need of a new warm coat and the sale and beautiful green color appealed to me. The reviews were also great. I have received many compliments on this jacket. Simple, classic, warm. Love the versatility of the two pockets in one and also being able to zip or snap. I removed the hood but I like that it has one... Read More as an option. Can be warn in city or country, fits well with variety of styles. The only thing that has been the tiniest annoyance, but not worth not buying over, is that the texture of the fabric is such that fuzz/piling of other materials can get on it and seem a bit sticky to the fabric. Pulled the items off or used a lint roller, no problem. Would absolutely purchase again, especially for the sale price.
Very warm and comfortable
I love this jacket so much. I got the green with mustard inside and it's such a great mountain-y color. The fit is very comfortable, it's for sure boxy, but like soft boxy- not awkward. Also love the big and secure pockets perfect for hands, keys, phone, etc. My only wish is that the neck came in closer (as it gets cold around my neck) a...

Love it but runs small
The jacket is great! I wear a size 10 and according to size chart I should of gotten the medium, thank goodness I didn't, I love the way the XL fits.

Cute and warm jacket!
I loved this jacket on the website and went back and forth before purchasing. So glad I did because now I wear it every morning to walk my dog. It also kept me super warm on a recent trip to Tahoe.

Do Yourself a Favor
I had my eyes on this jacket for months and was so excited when it finally went on sale. I bought it immediately in medium and when it arrived, it was too large for me.

Warm, great fabric, but small pocket holes
I usually don;t like bulky jackets, but I love the fit of this one. It is just a bit snug, but the measurements for my body type are right on so I still have mobility on colder days. The way the hood snugs the head is also nice. The opening for the pockets is really small though and hard to use. It's kind of a roadblock in just casual wear. I ...

So I would say for me it isn't an all around jacket, but perfect for colder activities where you are pretty active and need the warmth and close to body fit.
I really like everything about this coat except the hood is way too small for my satisfaction. There is no depth to the hood and I dont have a large head. If you are going to wear a coat that provides the amount of protection from the cold that this is designed to do, then putting the hood on should protect the face and this one does not. I bought ...

Hi Shannon, thank you for submitting this review. We want you to be happy with all of our products. If that hood turns out to be a deal breaker please keep in mind you're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) this jacket, regardless of whether it was purchased from us or from an authorized dealer.
Warm and comfortable!
I usually where a SM in a jacket, but am on the "smaller" size of MD per size chart. I purchased the MD and it is a perfect fit. So, definitely choose your size by the chart. I love this slightly crop coat! I thought it would be bulkier due to down and it is not. It provides excellent warmth, and if you are like me and do not always like ...

Its very insulated and warm! If you cinch the drawstring around the bottom it looks super cute too. I got the green/yellow and I love it, the colors are so vibrant but not an eyesore.

Beautiful colors & warm
I love this coat! I ordered the Wavy Blue color and it's stunning with a creamy gray on the inside.

The coat is warm but doesn't feel too heavy on my shoulders while wearing. I love Patagonia and know this coat will last a very long time.

Great for those on the shorter side!
As someone that is 5'0, it is next to impossible to find a jacket that fits my torso. This would probably be "cropped-ish" for most folks but if you are on the shorter side and looking for a jacket that fits, you will like this jacket! It is warm and insulated, and also protected me from the Seattle misty weather. The jacket zips on... Read More, so you can easily remove it if you don't need it. The only thing I would suggest for future production of this jacket is maybe adding some fabric over the hood zipper. When I have the hood zipped off, my hair gets caught in the zipper and that is a little painful trying to pull out. Otherwise, I would recommend this jacket to anyone who is looking for an upgraded, and very cute, jacket! I have the Sublime Green color and I get compliments every time I wear it out.
Nice warm jacket
I got this as a Christmas present from the hubs. Nice warm jacket. I love the removable hoodie. The pockets are the perfect placement for my hands with an inside zipper pocket, nice touch. I sized up for bulky sweaters underneath. I'm 5'4, and lengthwise it goes slightly below my waist. I wish the orange came back into stock, however, the... Read More green was a perfect second choice. I highly recommended it!
BEST JACKET EVER!!!!
This is the second time I have purchased this jacket, I have it in another color because its so amazing. Its great for cold, wet and windy conditions. This little thing does it all! I wish they made more fun colors for women though. I would buy more hahaha this jacket is perfect!
I love the cropped oversized jacket look! This one is super warm and comes with an awesome hood. I will say that the ink black one is a lint magnet but the other colors are awesome! If you're looking for an oversized look and layering stick with your normal size if you're not go down a size.
My favorite coat
I started a new school that does carpool in the mornings. It's been so cold in the mornings and this coat keeps me SO warm. We have also had a lot of afternoon carpools in the rain. I have to be outside for a half hour and this coat keeps me warm and dry and completely repeals the water.
GOOD FOR MY SHORT PEEPS! Size Up To Fit Sweaters Underneath!
I have bought and returned the jacket in a small and medium multiple times, and I have finally landed on a medium. I am 4' 11", 120 lbs., and I typically wear a small or x-small in most brands. But with Patagonia jackets, I get the Medium so I can layer things underneath. The small fits if I wear just a long sleeve underneath (which is al... Read Moreso what the model is wearing in these photos and video). But in reality, I will always wear a sweatshirt or sweater underneath a jacket in the fall and winter months, especially in New York City, but also in Northern Virginia, where I grew up. And if I don't, I'd prefer a jacket be oversized when I wear less layers underneath, than feel even a smidge too tight when I want to wear a second layer underneath. It's longer in length in the medium, but because the jacket is short, you still get the cropped look. PLEASE STOCK THE SUBLIME GREEN IN STORE SO PEOPLE KNOW WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE! Better yet, it would be nice to have one of each color to see what all the colors look like in store so we don't have to purchase it to find out.
New favorite coat!
Purchased the green / mustard color and absolutely love it. I'm usually a size S but sized up to a M so I could fit bulkier sweaters underneath and am so happy I did! The pockets and hood are the perfect size. It keeps you warm and the fabric feels very durable. Would 100% recommend!
Down and DWR
I love a shorter jacket and this downdrift hits right at the hips for me. It is a warm hooded down jacket and bonus it is water repellent. All around a great winter jacket. I would say it runs a little large but found that I liked the fit of the size large the best. The color options are awesome too!
Perfect puffer jacket! (Almost) LINT MAGNET
This would be the perfect puffer jacket, but I constantly have to use my lint roller on it because all the little fussys stick to it like theres no tomorrow. I do love that it has so many pockets in the front and that its so warm. The material is thick but it constantly looked dirty.

Sleeves Ride Up Leaving Wrists Exposed

Hey Mary, thank you for the review. This sounds like a unique issue. The elasticated wrists are meant to help keep weather out, but we could see how they could potentially ride up with movement.

A warm hug
Another review said this coat was like a warm hug, and Im not sure if its placebo or not, but it really is like a warm hug! I am 5 ft 8 in and normally a small/medium in clothes.

I wanted this jacket for a long time and finally was able to treat myself. It is warm, rugged, stylish- like you are wrapped in a cocoon. Great pockets and garden green color. Best of all is the way Patagonia treats you and stands behind their products.
so cute and warm but badly made!
I ordered this coat and within 1 week of very gentle wear, the pocket seam ripped on both pockets.

Cozy and adorable
I got the green. Received constant compliments which felt excessive know how comfortable and cozy it was just to wear. Good looking and super functional. The pockets took some getting used to with high top entries. The overall feel is just cozy and cute like a warm hug on freezing days.
Warmest, shortest coat I've ever had
I am 5.5 and 165 lbs. Typically, I wear a size 12 or XL. I bought the XL and if they offered a XXL I would have gotten it instead.
