Ws Silent Down Long Parka

True To Size
December 6, 2023


I finally bought a full length Patagonia in preparation for the frigid winter months to come. I was so excited when I first tried it on. The cuffs are comfy, the fabric so soft, love the length, and it looks good. My only complaint is how it does not keep me warm. Confused by all the warm reviews and not sure if the inconsistency is due to the recy... Read Morecled down? Maybe the soft fabric does not block the wind? Whatever is the reason this coat is cold. The right jacket for temps in the 40s, maybe early fall or late spring, but certainly not warm for the cold winter months.

Amazing material but too long

I’m so bummed this parka was just too long. I’m 5’7” so I didn’t expect it to hit so far below my knee. The material is soft and so so comfortable and the jacket is very well made with nice features like the cuffs on the arms. Ultimately I returned it for the Jackson Glacier jacket

November 27, 2023

Warm and stylish parka

Happy with the purchase! The jacket is nice and good quality. Winters are about 40-55 degrees Fahrenheit where I live. The jacket keeps me warm enough on most days. Because I always run cold, I do always wear two layers underneath. Because of this, I sized up.

November 26, 2023

Great coat; could use 2 inside pockets

This coat is so warm & I love the color (purple). The only thing that would make it a little better is to have 1-2 inside pockets, for security. Size is M W’s which isn’t listed below.

November 22, 2023

Beautiful Warm Winter Coat -- with style for a coat of this type

Lovely color (plum), length, warmth. I know I will enjoy wearing this for years.

November 21, 2023

Love but wish it was waterproof

This jacket is almost perfect! Super warm for MN winters and great for walking the dog. Just wish it was even a little bit water resistant! Snow or drizzle, this jacket will get wet and absorb it all.

November 20, 2023

Super warm!!

Durable and hearty as well as soft and toasty. Love this product!

November 12, 2023

Light weight and warm

I was hoping for a long coat that would be light, warm, and roomy enough to wear insulated pants and a bulky sweater underneath. I got it with this coat. The inside zippered pocket and the snapped outside pockets are bonuses.

November 12, 2023

The perfect city parka

I grew up in a warm climate and transplanted to a cold one about 15 years ago. I have never been happy with a winter parka until I found this one. It is extremely warm, lightweight, and cozy. I especially like the long length and the fleece-lined outer pockets to keep my hands extra toasty.

November 4, 2023

color is good

I am happy to report that the obsidian plum color is good. It is a dark eggplant shade that seems to compliment red and pink hats/scarfs/gloves. Size small is long and big on me- 5', 110lbs-- definitely room for layers.

November 3, 2023

Perfect for a Chicago winter

My daughter is a nurse in the Windy City. Walking to the hospital on those chilling mornings requires serious gear. Well it was a holiday gift and she’s loving it!!

November 2, 2023

So light.

This parka is so light and so warm at the same time. I love the length and how comfortable it feels. I typically wear xs and I got xs and it fits nicely but if you are planning to wear big sweaters underneath I would size up.

November 2, 2023

Returned: Nice Jacket but Hate the Snap Pockets

I am heartbroken and torn because while I like this jacket, I have returned it to REI because I cannot stand that the external pockets aren't zippered. This jacket is a great, long length and super warm. The material is satin-y, and I love that the sleeve cuffs are a tight, stretchy material. However, I cannot stand that both of the external p... Read Moreockets are each held by a single snap closure. There is a small, internal zippered pocket, but I don't want to have to unzip my coat every time I need something from it, and it can't fit that much anyways. I do a lot of recreational outdoor activities in winter, as well as travel often, visiting large cities and taking public transportation. I don't like the fact that in such a pricey, luxurious jacket my phone, keys, or other belongings could so easily fall out or be pickpocketed since the pockets are so exposed :(

October 27, 2023

Very disappointing

Given the description and reviews on this jacket I thought it would be a lot nicer than what it is. It’s not very warm and the feathers inside the jacket are starting to poke out and I’ve only worn it three times so it doesn’t seem like it’s going to last for more than one winter. For the price, definitely could find something of higher quality and... Read More warmer!

November 1, 2023

We're sorry to hear this Parka has been disappointing, Hayley! You may be able to keep the feathers intact by pulling them back into the baffle from the other side, and then firmly rubbing the fabric with your thumbs to “heal” any hole that has formed. In any case, we want you to be happy with everything you purchase from us, and if you like we'll be happy to help you [return]( it.

October 9, 2023

Great quality and super warm

I love this jacket! But, I ordered the Obsidian Plum color online and it is absolutely not the color in the pictures. I was really hoping for the deep purple but it is a much more bright purple in person. It is still a great jacket and fits great but I had to exchange it for the black one.

March 12, 2023

Almost perfect

This fits exactly as I wanted, with room for layers. I am 5.1 and 108 lbs and can wear a vest or big sweater under it which is perfect for being in snow country. I wish the side pockets had zippers instead of a snap. The inside pocket does have a zipper but it is not as deep as my previous Patagonia parka, which also had deeper, zippered side pocke...

This one does have snaps in addition to the heavy zipper, which my old one does not have, so thats nice!

I really like this coat!

I really like this coat! Its so soft and pleasant to touch! I am 5 ft 7 inches, 130 lb and I bought size S. It fits well on me and is a little spacious so I could wear a sweater or hoodie underneath.

February 16, 2023

Lovely and Warm

This works so well to keep me warm on the sub-zero days. It very light and easy to carry indoors. I was concerned it would be too long on me but the length is perfect for keeping the cold out. Pockets are great for hands, phones, glasses, keys... I love not having to carry a purse! Great for travel.

February 13, 2023


I purchased the silent down shorter jacket and while the fit was not right on me, I really liked the fabric. I saw the long version and I'm in love. It's so soft, great quality and well designed. The double zipper and snaps are great and give you lots of fastening options. It's long enough to cover your knees and reaches the top of m... Read Morey snow boots so I'm very warm when it's really cold out. I walk the dog daily and having a long warm coat as an option is key - I also love the old school look. Being able to zip, snap and have it opened or closed is great as we're walking. A medium fit but was snug in the body. The arms were way too short though. The large fits really well with a little extra room. It's actually very flattering for a long down coat - sliming - even in the large size. Worth every penny.

February 9, 2023

Beautiful coat

This coat is beautiful, feels so luxurious to wear. Warm, light. I ordered large because I have sometimes found the fit between the shoulder and sleeve to be tight on Patagonia tops and I don't like that tightness. So my coat is a little big but feels great and will be great for layering.

February 8, 2023

Great coat especially at 4 degrees

Fits well and comfortable. Not heavy

January 24, 2023

Super Warm

I wanted a dog walking coat for the really frigid days. This coat is it! It is so warm I don't need to layer under it the way I have had to under other coats. Now I almost want it to be 20 degrees in the morning so I have an excuse to wear it.

January 19, 2023

very warm

I bought the silent down long parka to keep me warm on walks. The 2 way zipper is helpful for getting in and out of wearing it in the car. Love the snaps down the front ,also. Very soft, very warm and the brown color is beautiful. Medium was a good fit. I wear size 8/10.

January 7, 2023

Superr warm

Love this jacket. Love how you can zipper up from the bottom to make getting in a car easier. 0 complaints! A must have for any winter event.

January 6, 2023

lightweight and super warm

This coat is lightweight, but super warm! I wear it for walking around nyc on extra cold and windy days. It helps get me to my early morning workouts. I'm 5'3" 125lbs and debated between the XS and S but preferred the XS for a tighter fit.

January 4, 2023

super warm. I love the

super warm. I love the longer fit to keep my legs warm. I got a medium and can layer without feely bulky. love this jacket.

December 29, 2022

Warm yet light weight

I love this coat! I wanted a coat for these cold MN winters that was longer and would help keep my legs warm. This is perfect and has the bottom zipper which is a necessity w coat this long. And its light weight. Its spendy and worth the investment.

December 29, 2022

Fit is perfect-looks wonderful!

Mostly will be used for walking dogs daily and work...I can wear anywhere!!

December 26, 2022

Super warm for Minnesota winter

I have been wearing this coat in the negative temperatures that come with Minnesota winter and it's everything I wanted. The length leaves very little of my legs exposed when I wear boots and the hood keeps my head warm. It's insulating, soft and warm without being heavy. Absolutely worth it.

December 25, 2022

Warm and comfortable

This is my second Silent Down Coat. I loved my last one, and would wear it most of the winter, as it was light, warm and very comfortable, as well as flattering. I had hoped to get a navy or dark brown onethis time but those colors were not available. Although I don't love the colors this season, which is geared more for blondes, than brunette... Read Mores, I compromised, and bought the medium brown one. The coat fits a bit snugly, but still allows me to layer. I hope to love it as much as my last coat.

I felt really protected in very extreme temps and was really grateful that you created such an amazing jacket. thank you so much Patagonia.

December 23, 2022

Just what I have been looking for

I have tried other comparable brands and have not been satisfied. When I discovered this coat in my local Patagonia store I was instantly sold. Its super warm (I live in Maine, warmth is a must), lightweight and doesnt look like Im wearing a sleeping bag. I am thrilled with my purchase.

December 19, 2022

Not that warm

This coat is very comfortable and lightweight and pretty attractive for a puffer. I love that it is reused down and the company ethical standards. But I dont find it that warm which is disappointing. At 25-30 degrees I was marginally warm. For the price and description, expected it to be warm down to zero. I will probably return it.

Best Jacket Ever!

Hands down the best jacket for the cold weather states. Paired mine with some tall Bog Boots and together they keep all the cold off of me! 10/10 would recommend this jacket.

December 11, 2022

Super warm and comfortable

Great coat for cold winters. I do not have to wear many layers underneath to keep warm even in freezing temperatures. I am good with this coat and a t-shirt underneath even in 20 degree weather. It is very windproof, which is good for Chicago winters. It covers my knees for extra warmth, too

December 9, 2022

Love it

Love it so far, we have not had temps in the 30's yet so not sure if it will be warm enough but so far has been exactly what I was looking for, the length, comfort, quality Highly recommend

December 5, 2022

Super warm

Very warm coat for the cold weather

November 29, 2022

Can eat a lot of turkey

To get the top to right correctly I am a size large. The belly around this coat is BIG and bell shaped. I would have expected a more feminine shape or a draw string. But, I'm going to keep it - so so comfortable!!

November 22, 2022

Best Cozy Coat Ever!

Buying this coat was a splurge, and I'm happy to say I have zero regrets. This coat is so unbelievably soft and toasty warm. I'm a teacher in upstate NY, were we take winter seriously. The extra length of this coat is perfect for recess duty, running errand in big wind chill, and outdoor winter parties.

Its like climbing into a sleeping bag. Warm and cudley

This is THE BEST down jacket.

I put this jacket on the moment it gets chilly in the fall and until it gets too warm in the spring. I live in Montana and will wear this for easily 6 months out of the year.

Cozy Warm Jacket

I bought this coat to replace a shorter one and I am really happy with the fit an feel. I have not had a chance to wear it in cold weather yet, but know it will be warm for the cold and show we get here in Central Oregon. Perfect for dog walking and errand running.

Like wearing a comforter

The best softest lightest fluffier jacket I have ever owned. Great purchase! Nice big pockets and a perfect fitting hood. Maybe a tad long but a keeper!

March 7, 2022

The best Patagonia item I own!

I was worried I ordered a size too small due to other reviews, but this jacket is true to size and you can definitely layer underneath. This is the best item I've ever bought from Patagonia. It's so soft, I feel like I'm wearing a down blanket or sleeping bag.

March 1, 2022

Warm and comfortable

While I LOVE this coat, there are a few random things about it I'd like to change. I wish that the exterior hand pockets zipped closed rather than a single button snap closure. That's not very secure so when I'm sitting in the stands watching hockey I fear losing my keys into the abyss below. But there is an interior zip chest pocket... Read More so I guess you use that instead.. I am 5"8" 135lb and I find that I needed the medium only because of the sleeve length. The sleeves are too short in the small, like so short. So the coat isn't as fitted if you size up to accommodate the sleeve length issue. Medium the sleeve length is great, and I suppose now I just have more room for a big layer underneath. Otherwise I am so in love with this coat. It is warm, and the entire reason I wanted it is due to the length- it hits me mid calf. It has been -22 ° in Montana and I walk around comfortably in this coat, it's awesome.

Great full body coverage

Love the length! It hits me at about mid-shin. There's enough room that I can wear a thicker layer underneath. It's SO WARM! The inner cuff is nice, but wouldn't mind an extended cuff with a thumb hole. Pockets are deep too, nothing is falling out of those.

Perfect for cold and windy adventures

I traded in my glacier parka for this jacket and am very glad -- living in NYC, the length and warmth have been excellent to get me through the worst of winter.

Warmth from head to toe

Standing in freezing temperatures outside for work has become bearable with the purchase of this coat. I am always toasty warm, now!!

I was a but skeptical about ordering the jacket without trying it on but man oh man. So cozy! Feels like a cute sleeping bag I ordered medium I'm 5.5 +130.

Beautiful coat

After four purchases and returns, I finally have a coat that is comfortable and warm. A few thoughts: 1) it doesn't have an exterior Patagonia label which surprised me because I'd wear it proudly. Why not offer it as an option?; 2) the hood doesn't detach. What not offer that as an option or simply design with a zipper hood?; and 3) ...

Very lightweight and flattering.

This jacket has a looser fit. It fits just slightly bigger on me than the Dusty Mesa Parka, which I have in the same size.
