European goose down. This Patagonia down jacket has Deluge DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish. Jake Gyllenhaal was totally wearing this jacket when he was getting coffee with that blonde country star. He probably wasn't wearing the jacket that you will own, and I can't guarantee that you will look like Jake Gyllenhaal but you might be able to land that blonde country star if you wear this Patagonia Down Sweater Jacket. She will also probably write a song about you. She writes a song about everyone. This jacket will keep you really warm. So you probably won't even need the coffee or the country star. Please don't tell my boss that I wrote this.

I bought this coat for my grandpa. He had a stroke almost 10 years ago and has trouble getting around. For him the most important features for outdoor items are if they are light and quality products. I read some reviews about this coat being the lightest and warmest coat that you can get so I decided to order it. I was a little skeptical about how warm the coat could be since the coat only weighs about 3/4 lbs. We he got the coat he loved it. I even tried it on myself and found the coat very well made and surprisingly warm. To me it feels way lighter and a little bit warmer than my Columbia down jacket that I wear right now. This coat fulfilled my expectations.A few cons:1) You get what you pay for. This is no cheap coat and you pay for its Patagonia quality. 2) Though it might seem it at first there really are not a bunch of color options to choose3) Not a super cold weather coat
This is my to-go jacket in winter when it is above 30. When it is below 30, I can pair it with a soft shell or hard shell depends on the weather. It is so light, so comfortable that you almost forget wearing something.
"Love the jacket, just be sure to get the right size"
I bought the down sweater jacket after owning a Patagonia better sweater and love it. It's very warm, especially when layered with another jacket such as the better sweater. I also love the fact that you can pack it down into its pouch and I find myself using it as a pillow on road trips. I am 6'1'' and 190lbs and I bought an xl. The xl fits fine, maybe a little bit bulky in the front when zipped up, but if I could go back I probably would have gone with the L and a slimmer fit. Like I said I like to layer it so for this reason the xl works fine for me.
I was disappointed by the fit of the Patagonia Down Sweater. I'm 5'9, 140lbs and this thing fits me like a barn. I mean zero form factor whatsoever. Drooping in the front, baggy arms, the whole nine yards. I went with a Small but don't think the fit issue would be resolved by downsizing, as the bottom of this jacket is cut very short (any shorter and I don't think it would adequately cover me). The jacket is light and warm as advertized, no qualms there, but needless to say I'll be sending mine back in search of a better fit.
"Just a well-made, lightweight "sweater" when you can't keep up with changes in the weather."
My husband loves this jacket! In fact, it's an essential in our house along with a waterproof rain jacket. They are extremely well made with a nice assortment of colors to suit every personality! My daughter's was stolen at a college football game ... they are special!
This jacket is fantastic. Well worth the money for an awesome Patagonia jacket. The fit is great for a slimmer body. The jacket feels great, keeps you warm and protected form the elements, and washes well. Two thumbs up!!
This jacket is just great. Much more versatile and gets much more use than a thicker down jacket. It is perfect as a midlayer in the winter under a rain/wind shell, or as an outer layer in the other months. Packs up very small and is very well made. It is also fashionable enough to wear in the city without looking strange :D Patagonia has become a bit of a fashion brand lately, but without compromising on quality of manufacture, function and a dedication to reducing their environmental impact.Even though it is a little expensive, it is well worth the cost as it should last a long time if you take care of it.
"Best weight to warmth ratio I have ever experienced!"
This jacket is absolutely amazing! I live in Mid-Michigan and practically lived in this jacket all winter! I bought this and the MJ Scruffy Casella around the same time and in combination they kicked old man winter square in the chestnuts!! This jacket packs down to the size of a really large grapefruit and weighs less than a pound! My only complaint is the jackets lack of ability to repel water. This jacket will survive in a very light mist/rain but you will get soaked and cold in anything else. I found that this jacket can fit under my Casella though which repels water amazingly, so problem solved. Shooting myself for not buying the model with a hood!!! Also Pat's ironclad guarantee rocks!
"Great quality, Lightweight, Packable, and WARM. No brainer."
I bought this after my first backpacking trip, needing something that was portable but warm. I can't say I am displeased with my selection. The down sweater is warm in any situation, I especially love it over my R3 fleece or under my rain jacket. The fit itself does seem a bit large, but that does give me the ability to layer something underneath it (such as a fleece). The only thing that I regret is not getting one with a hood.
"One of the best jackets I have ever owned."
So I just counted, and I own 26 jackets. But I really only wear about 4 different jackets, and this jacket is in my top two. I've only had it for about a year, but it has been life-changing. It is insanely warm and does a surprisingly good job at blocking wind. Here in Japan, the winters are not terrible (unless you're in the mountains). I wear this thing from fall to spring and I'm never wishing I had another layer. If I go skiing or climbing, I'll add one more layer on top of this, but then I'm usually roasting.Also, this jacket is very very very light. You hardly notice you have a jacket on. Nuff said.
