Not the one for me

This jacket seems ok and may work for someone else; it is cut much too narrow in the hips to work for me. I also didn't like the feeling of the fabric, it felt like polyester taffeta, instead of a nylon, but I love the idea of using renewable materials!

Too small

I loved the way this jacket looked. However, as other reviewers stated, its tight in the hips. Im a very Medium customer and had to return. I think a Large would likely be too big in other areas but there was no L size available to try. So disappointed!

Hey Laurie, thanks for the review. We're sorry to hear the fit wasn't quite right with this hoody! Unfortunately, this is a limited edition item, and we will not be restocking once the size runs sell out. Our apologies for any disappointment! If you're interested in a similar jacket, we recommend checking out the [Women's Down Sweater Hoody](

Light and warm!

The jacket is a great color. I agree the jacket runs a bit narrow near the hips. I meant to order a size up than normal so that I could wear layers, but I accidentally ordered my regular size medium. Jacket is very warm but is also light and not heavy. If you plan to wear layers or are bigger in the hips, would size up. Otherwise, very happy with t... Read Morehis jacket!

Fits really small

I really liked the look and feel of this jacket but the sizing is way off. According to Patagonia’s website I am a medium and I wear a medium in shirts, sweaters and coats but the sugar down hoodie was crazy small so, I returned it. Unfortunately, I was not able to exchange for a large as they were sold out and it was a web sale but I did buy a nan... Read Moreo puff in large and it fit great.

Great fit and warm

Too Narrow at the Hips

I ordered the Women's SugarDown Hoody and even though I love the look I have to return it because it's too narrow at the hips.

Wonderful jacket

Got this for my daughter and it fits her nicely, not too big/small. She's 5'8" and the sleeves were long enough. She's also about 128 lbs. and the S size was perfect with a thin layer underneath. The hood is fantastic to keep her head warm during the colder season.

Color and weight very nice!

I want to love it

I love the warmth and the light weight of this jacket but the fit is oddly tight on my hips. I'm considering sizing up or trying the men's version. (My husband owns one and it's a great coat)

gorgeous color and comfort

I am over the top happy with this jacket. I am petite sized, with average proportions. I find the jacket is just roomy enough to take layers underneath but still look smart, and the cut is really flattering, fitting just right over my hips - not too short or too long. The hood is big enough so I don't feel hunched or pinched when I pull it up ... Read Morein wind or light drizzle. I LOVE the Spanish Red color. Hooray! Best Patagonia jacket I have ever had.

Eco-friendly, cozy hoody. Why no stuff sack pocket?

I love that Patagonia continues to find eco-friendly ways to manufacture clothing. Two things about this jacket: 1. as others have noted, it runs tight in the hips. I probably would have been a size down except for that. 2. the jacket pockets do not serve as a stuff sack, which is a strange and somewhat annoying miss. That is such a basic and usefu...

great fit

This coat is a perfect fit for me. 5'4" 115 lbs. I liked the narrowness through the hips. I did not like the hood as it was too tight around my face.

Hey Patti, thanks for the review. We have quite a few hoodless down options! Our most popular and most similar to the Surgardown would be the [Women's Down Sweater](, check it out! It also comes in some lovely color options.

Amazing Sustainable Jacket

My very first Patagonia purchase was the down sweater hoody five years ago and I never looked back. I loved that this version of the classic hoody is made sustainably and out of renewable resources and ordered. Its relatively light weight and very warm. It has the same cloud like feel as my original hoody. This version does run slightly smaller and... Read More is more fitted than the classic version. Im 5'3, 125lbs and find the size small fits me well even with base layers and a thin hoody layered underneath. I wear this around the mountains in the Sierra Nevadas when Im not skiing and it keeps warm on really cold days. I purchased the red color and its so gorgeous, beautiful warm tone, quality jacket l that will last me for years to come. No regrets with this one!

Please consider all the down hoody reviews requesting a better design for HIPS!

I love everything about Patagonia. The quality is amazing. I love the concept behind this jacket. Unfortunately, like so many other reviewers (see the down sweater hoody reviews)...I find that these jackets just are not designed for anyone with hips. Almost every other review suggests that the down hoody does not fit in the hip area. I am wishing, ... Read Morepraying and hoping that the design team takes all this great feedback to heart and will make a few adjustments for the next line of down hoodies! An elastic bottom or draw cord would do the trick, or even just a bit roomier at the hip! So many friends who have this type of jacket have told me the same, they love it but just too snug around the hips! : ) Love Patagonia! Keep up the good work!

Hi Stef, thank you for taking the time to provide us feedback on how this jacket fit! The Women's Down Sweater has a trimmer fit through the waist and hips. If you're looking for a more relaxed fit, we encourage you to size up. Please feel free to take advantage of our [complimentary exchanges]( to grab the next size up. We'll make sure to pass this feedback on to our design team as it helps us improve future products.

Warm yet bulky

This is an excellent jacket --- warm, great aesthetics. However, sizing is tricky. The site says the model is 5'9" wearing a size S (which are my wife's dimensions), but the Small is too short in the arms and tight in the mid section, and the Medium is bulky/baggy. The cut seems to be different from the Down Sweater hoody, which is t... Read Moreoo bad as we were hoping for a more snug fit rather than something that we will have to layer underneath. Otherwise, happy with it.

Coat is very light weight

Coat is very light weight but warm. Excellent for travel. I became interested when I heard that the coat is mostly made from renewable materials.

I ordered a size larger

I ordered a size larger so i can wear sweaters under the jacket. I absolutely LOVE this jacket. It is so light and soft and fluffy. It keeps me soooo warm.

Solid Piece

Bought this piece as a mid layer for my wife. True to size. Fits nicely under a WP ski shell.

Cute and Eco All In One

This is a great jacket. Comfortable, warm, cute AND I love how environmentally friendly the construction is. More colors and design choices please but kudos to Patagonia for SugarDown!

Warmth is juuuuuust right

Jacket is perfect for walking around in cooler weather. I am warm without breaking a sweat. Size up if youd like to layer underneath or if you have wider hips. Very cool that this product uses polyester from plants, not fossil fuels! Keep that carbon in the ground!
