Ms Down Sweater Hoody

True To Size
September 5, 2023

Awful redesign ruined sizing.

I had the previous version of the unhooded jacket (size L) for eight years and it was perfect - versatile, high quality, warm, packable. This new redesign has ruined the sizing so that, in the mens version, the size L is far to big for me, leaving loads of extra fabric and room around the belly and waist, overly long sleeves, non-elastics yes cuffs... Read More that let in cold air and a bulky, ill -fitting, collar. On the other hand, the medium is far too small for me. No more Patagonia down sweaters for me, very sadly.

Nice Hooded Jacket

This jacket fits well. A medium was a bit snug so I went up a size. Got it at 50% off, so it was a steal! Like the colors, too.

September 3, 2023

The right warmth for the colder days...

I own the Nano Puff, which I love. However, it falls short of what I need on the colder or more humid days. The Down Sweater seems to hit the right spot for those days. It's a bit more bulky to pack but feels light and comfortable. I purchased a medium, and it's on the loose end, which is what I wanted. If you like fitter clothes, you... Read More might need a smaller size. Finally, I LOVE the yellow. It's more susceptible to stains and dirt, but you will be found easily. :)

Poorly packaged

I received my down hoody in the middle of a heat wave and haven't yet had a chance to use it. But, based on owning similar jackets (both by Patagonia and otherwise), I can provide some insight. First, the good. This fits like a typical Patagonia jacket. I'm 6'1'' and 202 lbs. I ordered a large and this jacket fits well. I ... Read Morehave room for a layer like a fleece or even a nano air jacket with ease, but the down hoody isn't too big to wear on its own. I think Patagonia has gotten better about consistency of its sizing and if you ordinarily wear a large in other Patagonia garments, this should fit well. The build quality and materials also seem nice and in line with what I would expect from Patagonia. Patagonia notes that this down hoody has more fill than previous versions, and the jacket does seem quite lofty for its category. Now the bad - the jacket was packed very poorly. In an apparent effort to reduce excess packaging, the jacket was not wrapped in a plastic bag, but instead was placed directly in a paper shipping bag. The intention was commendable, but the end result was not. The tape used to seal the paper shipping bag somehow was also accidentally affixed to the face fabric of the down hoody. I was able to carefully pull the down hoody from the tape, but this procedure required some care and patience to ensure I didn't damage the garment. Even when I freed the jacket from the tape, the adhesive left a nasty residue on the jacket. I was eventually able to clean most of the residue off, but this took a good deal of time and there's still a bit of tackiness that probably will require a machine wash to get off. I understand that Patagonia wants to reduce waste (especially plastic waste), and I support that goal, but the execution here was not what I expected from a top tier outdoor clothing producer.

Dual purpose hoodie

Patagonia, you've done it again.. managed to design a puffy that works in the alpine and the hood... not so warm as to be overstuffed and light enough that you'll take it with you and use it... good for the winter wilds of snow/wind and walking the hood to get an early morning coffee...

May 9, 2023

the "perfect jacket"

Could dispense many words but less is definitely more ... This downie fits in two worlds... warm enough for Colorado winters in the high Alpine and not too warm/overstuffed to make it unusable for more mild uses.. love this jacket so much i have a hoodie and non-hoodie....

April 28, 2023

stylish, warm and comfy down jacket

This jacket will be a great choice on those not-too-cold days. Love the hood. Not a super technical jacket, but great for around town.

Ruined a classic

I had my last down sweater for 10 years, wore it on three different continents and on countless climbing, hiking, skiing, running, biking and traveling adventures. It was my go to for everything including the casual hangout. When it finally started to kick the bucket I thought I could just get the same thing again for another decade without having ... Read Moreto try anything new because my size is hard to find, but the new design killed that idea. After wearing this jacket for a winter season I have concluded that everything I loved about it is gone. The fit is too slim and too short, almost like a women's fit. I have a climber's build so slim at the waste but a little broader in the lats and shoulders and I feel cramped and can't easily raise my arms without it uncomfortably constricting and letting in a bad belly draft. I'd go a size up but then the arms would be too long. They are already a bit long and without the elastic at the ends the cuffs get in the way...they keep getting in my oatmeal. When zipped up the neck is too tight and the hood is bunched up in the back. Even when the hood is on it's tight and squashes your face. There's no comfortable way to have it zipped all the way up so you have to leave it splayed open and in the way. Oh, and the hood is tiny, definitely not helmet compatible so wearing a shell over with a helmet is annoying because there's just this bunch in your neck. It feels like this jacket was designed to personal preference/ proportions without experience and it bums me out. Please, please bring back something closer to the classic style. In the mean time I'm looking for something else and lamenting my loss.

Very bad choice and quality

I wrote a review 12 months after buying it, now I'm writing again to make it clear that the jacket falls apart, the same rubbing of a backpack on the back (work backpack with a notebook on the back) wears out sanity and I ripped the fabric therefore losing feathers, the only solution they gave me in the stores in Argentina and Berlin was to st... Read Moreick a patch on it, which they gave me. They didn't fix my jacket because you have to wash it before wearing it (I can't wash it because it has a 5-centimeter hole losing feathers) so there it is patched with something that looks like black ducktape. Too bad, having so many other products with several years in use and still in perfect condition, you have products like this. Another thing, you have to go to the local to get attention or respond. The jacket can be used for any activity that does not include using a backpack or cross pack, it is practical for traveling but it stays there, it is made of glass, it looks very nice and warm, but when it is hit or rubbed it disarms , and Doesn't repel even a light drizzle. a shame.

Irritates neck and facial hair after shaving

This jacket is great apart from the fact that I can’t wear it with any stubble or it irritates my neck like nothing else. I have two other patagonia jackets that don’t seem to have this issue. Patagonia should only sell this as a womens jacket or put a piece of fleece around the neck area.

Horrible Redesign

I have really loved and constantly worn my previous version of this jacket without a hood for years and finally decided to spend the money on a hooded version. Unfortunately nothing that I loved about my old jacket has survived this horrible redesign. While the earlier version was great as a middle layer or outer layer, this jacket is far too stiff... Read More and bulky to work as a middle layer for me. The earlier version packed down to near nothing, while this version is bulky and heavy both to wear and to carry. They have essentially discontinued the old jacket and introduced a new jacket under the same name, but they are not at all the same. I really wish they had just said they were discontinuing the old jacket so I could've bought it when it was still available. I'm really heartbroken as I was counting on this as an essential piece for one-pack travel, but now Im trying to find something similar to the old version in a mens xs, not an easy task.

A classic for a reason

This is jacket is a classic for a reason. Lightweight but warm, packs into its own pocket, and looks great.

Could be just that its new, but its definitely warmer than my old jacket. - the material seems slightly more durable as advertised. Still not a super durable jacket obviously, but slightly less worried about wearing it while doing chores outside or in active situations. Updates/changes that have really boggled my mind and caused quite a bit of frustration: - no elasticity around the cuffs. This makes no sense and its really distracting and very unpleasant. The jacket is warmer, but if there is any wind its going straight up your sleeve. I almost returned the jacket based on how distracting this feature is. - no liner around the neck. My wife has the previous model down sweater hoody and hers has this really soft material on the inside where the jacket meets your face. Overall Id still recommend this jacket. I hope the next version sees a return of some of the old features.

Very warm jacket for the weight

I bought this jacket to replace a larger, bulkier down jacket in order to be able to layer underneath a gore-tex shell.

I also own a Nanopuff hoody (for warmer days, wet weather and to use as an under layer under my DAS parka - making me invincibly warm). The Nano Puff medium fits me perfectly This is the only down item I own as I generally refuse to buy down for ethical reasons. Patagonia has provided one of the only ethically sourced down items I know of. That combined with their commitment to fair labor practices and the kind of quality that lasts a lifetime makes this a very satisfying item to own and wear. I confess, I look forward to putting it on every morning. Altogether- its a great piece and well worth the money - like most Patagonia products

Core Piece Of Clothing

This is the best midweight jacket I've ever owned. It's lightweight and extremely warm.

December 26, 2022

Warm and cozy

Just moved back to upstate NY after a few years in Fl. This coat is awesome for the cold weather. Lightweight, hood is making and zips to nose. Layers add even more warmth. Bought one for my wife too.

December 22, 2022


The package came as expected. It was minimally packed and the coat has exceeded my expectations for warmth.

Tis' The One!

I bought a whole host of jackets for the winter period here in Cape Town, temperatures range from low 40F to mid 50F (4C - 15C) , but it's the rain and wind that will get ya here. I knew the down jacket would be warm, and that it was. In a lot situations, I only needed a good baselayer underneath and that was it. What blew me away was the ... Read Morewind protection (pun intended). I would wear this walking home in the low 40s with howling wind with only a baselayer and flannel underneath and the cold wind would not penetrate the jacket at all. This instantly made it my favorite jacket. The down can compress into a tiny size that makes it great for traveling, and the hood covers your entire head and is adjustable for a tighter/looser fit. As a bonus, I also love how simple it looks, allowing you to walk into most settings without looking under-dressed or informal. I loved it so much I also got the vest version that works well too outdoors.

Comfy and warm

This Jacket is soft, warm and Super light. It is deceiving warm to be honest. Love this jacket

December 16, 2022

So comfy and warm

When we received this in the mail I was blown away with how thin it was. Like is this really gonna keep anything warm?!? But W O W!!!! Its so comfy and it for sure keeps you warm. My husband has been known to walk the dogs in 30 degree weather with no shirt on, this jacket, pants, and shoes. If you want to wear a sweat shirt under no big deal as it...

Warm, more down

This is my 2nd navy down sweater and my first with hood. Love the hood. Increases warmth. Also love the 30% increase in down. Would rather have the warmth and slightly more weight. So far, durability seems good. Not sure I would wear it in a thorn bush, but careful wear should allow this item to last and last. 6 foot 2 inch, 225. The large fit well... Read More with just a tshirt, but wanted extra room for sweater or hoody underneath. Great product, once again. Im hooked on Paddy.

Punches above its weight class

Awesome puffy! Ive had many over the years and this one is the warmest for the weight and bulk of the jacket. The recycled nylon and responsible down just makes it better!

December 12, 2022

Warm and comfortable

This coat is warm, comfortable, and stylish. The length is perfect. Highly recommend!

Highly Recommended

I absolutely love this jacket. It's extremely warm and stylish. Perfect for winters in the Northeast. Worth every penny - highly recommended!

December 12, 2022

Just Right - Made Even Better

I bought this one as a replacement for one from a few years back that was wearing out. I love all of the changes! Its a super design made even better with the new cuffs, the new internal pockets and the additional insulation. Love this jacket.

December 11, 2022

This is a replacement jacket for a previous hoody... I love it BUT it doesn't have the giant, roomy hood like the other one had... I like the giant hood rather than the more fitted one on this new garment. I love the new color! It's the yellow!

December 11, 2022

Super warm with a great fit

This jacket is extremely comfy and warm. I sometimes have issues with the hoods on jackets not fitting comfortably and this one works great for me. The ability to use the jacket as its own stuff sack is great for portability and packability and I can't wait to really make use of it on my next backpacking trip.

December 11, 2022

Ultra warm, soft, and lightweight

This is my first Patagonia jacket purchase, and I don't know why I waited so long. This jacket is perfectly warm, ultra soft, and super light weight. I never have to be cold again!

It did not disappoint! Im typically a womens medium, and the mens small fits great. It is a little longer in the torso and broader in the shoulders, but that only adds to the comfort for me. Extra room for layering!

Perfect fit

Bought this as a gift for my son and he loves it. He wears it for work, hiking,fishing you name and it is the perfect weight and warmth

December 10, 2022

Great All Around

The previous edition of this jacket was perfect for dawn patrols and as a snowboarding under layer. The new generation is just that much better, enough so I bought it.

December 10, 2022

Love it, awesome customer support

I've had a few down jackets from Patagonia over the years and they've been excellent. Even when they have issues (e.g. zipper teeth break off), Patagonia has quickly remedied in a no-hassle, full service way. Love the fit and plushness of this particular jacket - warm yet seems to adapt to a wide range of temps (e.g. low 30's to low ... Read More60's) without shivers or sweat. And, the additional pockets on this latest version are great.

December 9, 2022

Previous version was better!!

Bring back the elastic cuffs around the wrists!! Without them cold air gets through. And bring back the fleece material on the chin/zipper area. It really is warmer with the fleece on your chin when its cold.

Great fit and quality

I bought this after trying several other brands. This jacket fits great, I'm 6'0 and the L was the perfect fit. It left plenty of room in the chest and sleeves for movement. The sinch around the waist keeps the cold air out and my body nice and toasty. The hood covers well and has an adjustment to tighten over your head. The only negative... Read More I can find is the jacket is a bit loose around the wrists. So I have to tuck my gloves into it to keep drats out. But it's a small price to pay.

December 5, 2022


My how Patagonia has fallen the last few years... I have a few older versions of this jacket and this new version is TERRIBLE!! Not warm AT ALL very thin and the shell material seems so thin that it would tear very easily which I guess is why they give you patches in the pocket when you buy it!?!? No elastic cuff material on the end, No fleece mate... Read Morerial on the inside of the top of the zipper so when it is zipped up the cold polyester just rubs your chin now. Little things I guess but things that I liked in older versions. I love what Patagonia stands for but your attention to details and quality of your products has really fallen downhill the last few years! I get you don't promote consumerism but at least make a product that would actually last.. Let's be honest this jacket and most of your new products just won't stand the test of time like your older versions....

Most warm and durable jacket owned

Love this jacket, it has traveled the world with me on hikes and climbs and has kept me warm. Even when it needed minor repairs, Patagonia took care of it. Wow, a garment which will be with me for the rest of my life!

December 1, 2022

Nice soft feeling and super warm

This is the most warm and comfortable down sweater, keeps my daily walks along the Columbia River from Fall to spring really enjoyable.

November 29, 2022

Great Jacket!

This is my third Down Sweater Hoody over the past 15 years. I have have tried other brands over the years but made a call several years ago that Patagonia is my only brand. The products cant be beat, service and repairs is unmatched and what the company stands for, well stands alone in doing what's best for people and the world we live in.

November 26, 2022

What can you say, typical

What can you say, typical Patagonia quality in the perfect mid-level downy layer (or outer when mother sunshine is out). The jacket is bomber, love it !!!

November 19, 2022

A nice revision of a classic

I have the older non-hoody version of the down sweater and I wanted a hoody version. I read the reviews of the new design and had some concerns, but decided to see for myself. The material is very soft and I prefer the pocket placement and design of the new design. I also like the sleeve and cuff design, I like how it sits slightly lower on my ha... Read Morend, which helps to keep them warm. It feels very comfortable, and I like that it's not tight. If it's truly cold, I'll wear gloves which will close the gap. The fit is indeed larger, but I'm sure it's intended for layering. However, when zipped up, the chest area is boxy. But, hey, it's a down coat and most are going to look boxy sometimes. This feels less urban than the last design, as if it is more closely targeted to outdoor use. I like that. And oh yeah, it's warm! The extra insulation is helpful. I'm loving this coat! It might be ideal for the product category it fits into.

November 19, 2022

Warm and comfy, overall. Really

Warm and comfy, overall. Really like how the hook and the neck are shaped as it nicely cradles my head and neck. There's lots of warmth in the hook and neck. For me, keeping my head and neck warm are key to keeping the rest of my body warm.

Great Jacket - Black is not Black

Love this jacket - Very soft to the touch and light. The hoody is great, and the deep inside pockets are a great addition. Very warn and moves well well with your body while being active. The fit is a little roomier than I'd prefer, and the sleeves seem a touch long. The sleeve cuffs don't sinch up around my wrist as tightly as I'd... Read More like letting cold air enter the sleeves. NOTE: The black is not black - its much closer to a navy blue, and in my opinion, could have been labeled as such. If you hold it up next to another "Black" Patagonia coat, you'll clearly notice the difference. It still looks great - just not black

November 17, 2022

Lightweight and warm

I love this jacket. It's super light, but incredibly warm. I can make it through most of winter here in Chicago with just this and another light layer. The inside pockets are nice as well. Highly recommend.

November 17, 2022

Changes from previous generations not all good

I own the same product from 2020. This year the cuff's are much looser as others have mentioned. The black color is also washed out compared to previous generations, which I assume is from the new netplus material. Otherwise it's a good jacket.

November 13, 2022


The Patagonia Men's Down Sweater Hoody is a perfect jacket. Looks great and is plenty warm during the winter months. One suggestion would be to add a true Navy to your line of jackets. Thank you for many years of warmth and comfort!

This jacket is, unsurprisingly, amazing.

Considering that I've had my other Patagonia puffy for 20+ years, it was a no brainer to buy another one. I wanted something with a hood and not black ... so this was it. I have no doubt that I'll get 20+ years out of this one as well. This one is so cozy and even if it fits a TINY bit small, it's perfect for what I need it for. I do...

This jacket has been my Go To putter and mid layer for the past decade. Compressed into y camera pack or puffs to provide the barrier against the chills. Hands down one of my favorite items of clothing.

Extremely warm and simple

The warmth to weight ratio this jacket has is incredible! The jacket is very simple with no extra features that could be labeled as useless. No regrets with this purchase.

Warm jacket. Miss the old design

The old fit and feel of this jacket was much different. The cuffs were better. The pocket draw string is gone. They seemed to get cheap with the zipper this year too. No more comfortable zipper, just a string thats was burned, hoping it doesnt fray. Very warm stylish jacket other than that

Super light and comfortabe

Ordered this jacket for the fall/spring, as my old rain jacket/sweatshirt combo wasn't cutting it in below 10-8C. The price was had to swallow at first, but after trying it on my confidence was restored; it is very light, and breathable when it needs to be but also holds warmth very well. I ordered the forge grey colour, and just a warning tha... Read Moret depending on the screen you see the jacket on the tone of blue might vary considerably (on my phone it appeared darker while on my pc it was light blue), while in reality it was closer to a sky/light blue (which personally I am a fan of but to each their own). Overall, great for pretty much any activity.

October 14, 2022

Great jacket; cuffs let cold air in

I really like this jacket. My only frustration is that the elastic on the cuffs is too large to keep cold air out. This is a change from previous Patagonia jacket's I've owned. I hope Patagonia will go back to the previous cuff dimensions.

October 13, 2022

Great Coat

This is a great coat. The hood is a great added bonus. The small did not fit for a 140 pound 5 Foot 4 person so make sure to get a size Medium. I love that you can put a rain coat over this jacket and easily roll it up and tuck it in your bag. I liked the coat so much that I bought a second one without the hood.

Hoody Down Sweater

Last year I bought the Down Sweater. This year I bought the Hoody Down Sweater. I believe your quality has gone down since last year. The cuffs are certainly not a good as the Sweater's are.

Hey Edward, thank you for the review. We're sorry to hear that you feel like the quality has gone down with our Down Sweater Hoody. This season we released a redesign that uses NetPlus which is a fiber created from discarded fishing nets. We've also added 29% more down.

Great Casual Jacket

I really like this jacket. If you are looking for a light, functional, down jacket that is dependable and super comfortable, this is the one to get. I have tried others from RAB, Outdoor Research, Arcteryx... but this is my favourite. I find that the competition has jackets that are cut too athletic, and they don't look good for just going aro... Read Moreund the city. After 3 years of use, the arms of my jacket have started to develop little holes and feathers are coming out. It is annoying to stitch them up, but worth it. Needless to say, the super lightweight shell is not that durable... but I don't care. I still love my down hoody.
