Patagonia Women's Skyforest Parka

True To Size
January 6, 2021

Same material as Baggies Shorts

I love the material of Baggies shorts. So when I read that this jacket was made of the same, I jumped on it. Ordered kale green, love the green but not a fan of the yellow zipper lining. Fits me great 5 3, average build. Arm length is perfect. I like the elastic cuffs and all the pockets. The lightness of the jacket is wonderful for layering. I hat... Read Moree heavy jackets. Wish the lining wasnt as silky. I get a lot of static from it. I would have just liked it without a lining, however when I saw the navy on sale in my size I purchased that quickly. I know Im gonna love that jacket more regardless of the silky lining, it doesnt have yellow zippers. Both are keepers!!!

Very nice!

The only reason I returned this jacket was because it ran on the large side. I'm confused by Patagonia sizing because I'm typically a large (I'm 5'4, 180lb, C-cup), but this parka was too roomy and baggy looking. Bummed I couldn't exchange as they were all out of M. The parka was very cute though & I loved that it had t... Read Morehe two zippers. It was light & quality was great. Very sad the sizes were out!

Great retro autumn jacket but not the best hood

I have used this jacket from September and now even in December in Southern Sweden, so it works for autumn and even mild winters here. I like the retro feeling of the colors, patterns and the laces. The pockets are many and practical and I enjoy the longer parts of the jacket to give some more warmth. The laces on the grip for the zippers try to lo... Read Moreosen however, and as for another Patagonia jacket (Lightstorm) I have bought, the hood is not the best. It is hard to adjust with the lacers and the head and face is not very protected from the rain, especially when windy.

Love this jacket

I got this jacket as my water resistant top layer for mushroom foraging. It sits flat and nice under my canvas overalls and has been relatively prickle resistant. Even if im laying in the middle of a blackberry bush looking for fungi, no thorn that snags it, has (yet) torn it. The elastic cord waist Is very flattering when wearing it casually. I we... Read Morear a better sweater underneath and it's almost as warm as my parka as long as it's not pouring rain. Pretty thin on its own, it will be a great year round jacket. It is a baggier fit but I'm an extra small human so it might be a me thing. Would recommend. 10/10 with rice

Very nice parka for fall

I just like this parka: the berlin blue color and all the pockets. Nice lightweight material.

Very pretty

September 22, 2020

I love this Parka!

The Kale Green color is such a beautiful green! This jacket does run slightly large, but I love the fit. It makes it easier to layer sweaters underneath. I honestly prefer a slightly larger fit anyways. I haven't worn it out yet, but I plan to very soon with this Fall weather! It will be the perfect jacket for Fall, light rain, and cooler cris... Read Morep days. I definitely recommend it!

September 4, 2020

Very Stylish

Got this jacket with the intention of being able to wear it outside on a fall day. Got it in the forest green color and loved it!. Not sure if it is meant for the rain, so I am unsure if it would work since the material does seem a bit thin. Other than that, I would recommend it if you are looking for a thin jacket.

September 3, 2020

Nice Looking

It's a beautiful jacket, and a great length, but it has very thin material and not really what I was expecting

Skyforest Parka

I had ordered a large which was too big. The ease with which the exchange took place exceeded my expectations! I love the jacket!

September 2, 2020

Very cozy

It fits perfectly. Ive worn it a couple times in the rain and it kept me nice and snug. Love the fit & style of this jacket.

Classic jacket for Spring / Fall

I adore this jacket- I purchased the Kale Green color which has yellow accents. The sizing seems to run quite large compared to other Patagonia jackets I have purchased in the past. I am 51 with some wide hips and I am able to fit into the XS and to be honest, the size Small was too large for me (I typically purchase Medium). The Skyforest Parka ... Read Moreis Fair Trade Certified sewn and made from 100% recycled materials= hats off to Patagonia for their corporate commitment to the environment and reducing waste. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a light mild weathered jacket and am only giving this 4 out of 5 stars due to my issues I had with sizing.

August 24, 2020

It runs really large

Unfortunately, this jacket runs really large, so I'll be returning it. I'm very disappointed though. If this jacket was in fact true to size I would not be returning it. It's more work for me now to have to print a returning label and go drop this off.

Nice Jacket to Wear Around the City

I like how this jacket is water resistant and is longer in length. I'm 5'4", 120 lbs, but I did find the jacket fits a bit larger and the arms were too long for me. However, I wear this to run errands so it was fine to be a bit baggy.

July 31, 2020

Super leightweight but still warm!

I just got this Jacket in green and its perfect! I was afraid that it would look a little too short but the length is great and I like the fact that the back side is a little longer than the front side. I ordered the jacket in S and XS because I wasnt sure if XS wouldnt be too tight if I wear a sweater underneath it but it wasnt (I am 118lbs). The ... Read Morematerial is very nice and matt instead of glossy which I really like as it makes it look a little less sporty and can be worn with less sporty outfits too. Even though the material is lightweight, it seems to be very wind resistant and warm! I feel like the jacket is kinda large and Im usually between XS and S so XS was perfect for me in this case.

The best jacket for Texas winter and spring!

I bought all three colors and would buy more if it came in it. The length is perfect. It the very comfortable. I can keep it all zipped and buttoned up and unzip it at the bottom if I need to jump in my car or sit down. I dont have to undo the whole jacket. Im in LOVE with this jacket!! Please make more colors. It is perfect for our mild winters an... Read Mored rainy spring days. I wish it wasnt 100 degrees out so I could still wear it!

Great jacket

Bought the Kale Green colour in XS and loved everything about this jacket from the yellow accents to how the fabric feels. It was also warmer than I expected. I would suggest cinching the waist drawcord quite a bit for a more flattering look. I really wanted to keep it but it was just a bit too big for me. Wish they offered this jacket in XXS.

February 26, 2020

Snug Fit Compared to Previous

Purchased multiples of these in size small in the previous year & regardless of the jacket measurements being the same this year, it ran small all around (especially smaller in the bust) leading to what almost felt like a super slim fit when its a regular fit. Planning to exchange up for a medium.

February 24, 2020

Fall/spring coat

Im 54 & have a very short torso. I normally wear medium in Patagonia. This jacket is great. I love that there are 4 pockets. The bottom pockets are sort of placed quite far back so I would prob never put my hands in them if I was cold. The green colour is super nice. The draw string cinche waist is very low on me due to my short torso so I prob... Read More will not be using it , but other than that its a great between season jacket. Otherwise I would have given it 5 stars.

Perfect, almost year-round jacket

I was so excited about this jacket I had to write a review before really wearing it much. I’m 5’2”, 145 lbs and top heavy. I’m usually between a medium and large...a large for my torso but then the arms and shoulders are usually too long. This jacket is plenty roomy, like I like, without feeling like it’s the wrong size. That being said, it may run... Read More a tad big for some. I don’t like wearing super heavy coats in the winter, unless I have to and living in Michigan sometimes you can’t avoid it, so this is the perfect weight, length and offers protection from rain/snow. Being on the short side, I love the elastic cuffs. This jacket has a lot of style, features and I think it will be my go-to jacket. Some of the colors are a little bold for my liking but I think it’s offered in black, it just wasn’t in my size.

November 22, 2019

Great jacket!

This jacket is exactly what I wanted- practical but still flattering. Love the length, light weight but keeps warm, sleeve length is perfect & like how the wrists have elastic & the option to cinch at waist. I’m 5’1” & 125lbs & I got the medium in navy. Super satisfied!

The best

Excellent quality

This is a a great rain jacket. I love the color, and its study enough to keep me dry in the rain.

September 25, 2019

Haven't used it yet, but

Haven't used it yet, but am looking forward to doing htat.

September 23, 2019

Great quality

Bought this for my daughter, she absolutely loves this jacket. It has some weight to it so it is perfect for a Montana fall.

September 17, 2019

Great Rain Jacket!

I love the retro colors with the blue and pink- not bright. Love the length which covers my hips to my upper thighs. Love the lining, easy to wear in Chicago fall since it’s warm enough for stormy mornings, but I can wear it home on humid afternoons because of its breath ability. Recommended!!

August 16, 2019

Versatile and stylish classic raincoat

Love all the pockets, warmer than I expected, the colors are gorgeous, fits true to size - just an all around wonderful raincoat!

August 15, 2019

Love it!!

I am surprised at how warm it keeps me since there is basically nothing to it. It is so lightweight and easy to pack in my bag. Sometimes when I'm chilly and I put it on, I have to take it off or at least unzip it because it gets me too warm. Good problem to have.

May 11, 2019

Love My Skyforest Parka!

This is a perfect all-weather jacket. It worked equally well in Calgary at Easter when the skies were clear and temperatures in the mid 60s F and then again in Philadelphia in similar temperatures but in fairly heavy rain, when it kept me warm and surprisingly dry. The adjustable waist is a big plus from a looks perspective. My only complaint would... Read More be that the elastic at the end of the sleeves is fairly loose. It would be helpful if that were adjustable like the waist.

Skyforrest Parka

Overall a great jacket. Good weight and features. My only complaint is that the side zippered pockets are awkward to use. Your hands are somewhat behind you and the zipper scratches the wrist area.

May 8, 2019


I ordered this parka in the yellow which I love. I also saw it in the navy at the Patagonia Pittsburg store- very pretty. The fabric is soft and drapey, the pockets are outrageously plenty with very cool retro styling. Alas I did not keep it tho because it is very full and long on me, it fit more like a dress. I am 5’5” and 130#, slim cyclist. I fe... Read Morelt like I could have used a Petite sizing, which occasionally happens for me with Patagonia items. So sad! Loved it tho!

Skyforest Parka

I just returned your small and extra small Skyforest Parka due to sizing issues. I am 5'7" and 128 lbs. and usually wear a small or medium. Your small is huge, made for women with large busts and long arms. The extra small was significantly smaller and tighter. Both had the shape of a paper bag--no slimming lines even when cinched with dr... Read Moreaw-string waist. The parkas were well-constructed and fabric and colors perfect, but poor fits!

Great raincoat

I bought this as a gift for my wife. She loves it. Looking forward to using it for years to come.

April 16, 2019

Casual and Comfy

I love this casual parka! I wear it almost everyday; it’s very comfortable. Size runs a little big. It’s perfect parka for a crazy New York spring weather

Skyforest Parka Love

I love my new Parka! I chose the navy and my dogs fur doesn’t stick to it. If your a little bit in between sizes go up for a good fit while seated with the zipper closed. Warm and perfect for cool coastal days or mountain evenings. In winter plenty of room for layering and covers your bum when you need it! Light rain is no problem. Lot’s of complim... Read Moreents every time I wear it.

Casual Jacket

Runs true to size. Got it as a spring and fall jacket to wear casually and to work, like the fit/look. Only complaint is the bottom draw string is a bit tighter then I wished. Overall, a staple to have.

A nice jacket for wind and rain!

I received this jacket yesterday and took it on a hike in light rain today to write this review. I normally like to wait longer before reviewing clothing so I can get a better idea of how it performs, but I decided to make an exception for this jacket so I could provide more information about it, since it has no reviews yet. This jacket is super,... Read More super lightweight--even more so than the product description makes it seem. As far as I can tell, there's no lining, so in spring or fall warmth will need to come from whatever you have on underneath it. This jacket is mostly for providing a layer of protection from rain and wind, and it seems to do that job excellently. It feels sturdy, though it remains to be seen how it will stand the test of time. The fact that it's so light makes it versatile enough that you could also wear it during summer rain or storms. When I saw this jacket go up on Patagonia's site, I knew I was going to order it as soon as I could. I chose Port Blue, which has a 90s color scheme I absolutely love. In person, the colors of the Port Blue jacket are pretty accurate to the photo on the website, though in certain lighting conditions the jacket looks a little more pastel. I love the design of this jacket, and I only wish that there was a small pink accent somewhere else on the jacket besides just the ties--the zipper pulls, maybe? I worry that I'll eventually lose the ties, and the tiny bit of pink is one of my favorite things about this jacket. I love the Port Blue, but all three colors of this jacket are awesome, and I'd love to see Patagonia make some more retro-inspired pieces like this. After one day, this jacket is already one of the most delightful objects I own. I honestly can't yet attest to its performance in different weather conditions or its durability, but it protected me well from the wind and rain today.

trendy but functinal

I caved and got this because it's different from other Pata stuff I own. Definitely more of a statement piece, but I also love the functionality and know it will be great for the shoulder seasons/cool summer nights. I like the liner material, soft and comfortable. I bought the yellow and love it. I also love the length, not too long. Minus one... Read More star because I wish the cut was a little more flared at the bottom. It's cut straight (part of the vintage feel?), so I'm glad it has a two-way zipper for when you are sitting or if you have hips (mine are not very wide for reference) otherwise this would not work for me.

February 23, 2019

This is adorable

I ordered a medium bc my winter Patagonia parka is a medium, and it fits perfectly, but it fit more like a small, so I promptly returned it and ordered a large! Omg I love love love it! I can wear a hoodie under it, it’s lose fitting, cozy and will be perfect for spring, summer and fall! Love Patagonia so much!

February 21, 2019

Love it

The sizing was very true to size. I’m a bra size 38 D so I always worry about the chest area for jackets. Love the material, it’ll be super light for spring and summer where I live, and I can easliy wear a thin inside if it’s cold.
