Product Description Item No.   10281615

The Patagonia Women's Downtown Parka is a down insulated coat for cities with cold winters. The long coat falls past the knee in a slim fit, shaped with wide, flattering baffles filled with 600 fill power duck down. Take a stand against the cold with the tall, shawl-like collar that features a hidden zipper, revealing a cozy hood for those super snowy days. The front zip has a wind flap to block drafts and is two-way, so you can drive to work without being trapped inside, unable to move your legs. The hand pockets zipper shut along the seam, hiding when not in use and you'll find a hidden chest pocket on the interior for your phone to protect it against the weather. Now all you have to do is pluck up the courage to step outside.

Women's Fit Guide Details & Info

Patagonia's measurements refer to body size and NOT garment dimensions. Sorry for yelling about it.

Each Patagonia product is designed and shaped specifically for its intended use, and below are their generalized four fit descriptions, and details about each fit. The Patagonia fit for each style can be found in the product description features or specifications.

• Conforms to the body's contours.

• Closer-fitting. Slim-fitting technical garments may be worn over baselayers and light midlayers.

• Neither slim nor oversized. Regular-fitting technical garments may be worn over heavier midlayers. Men's regular fit pants have a slimmer fit through that thigh, lower leg, and cuff.

• Drapes loosely on the body. Men's relaxed fit pants have a bit of extra room through the hip, thigh, lower, and cuff.

• Boxy, athletic, with a traditional crew neck.

• Formfitting and longer in the torso, with a wider, deeper neck (not quite scoop).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic feminine coat I bought this coat 3 weeks ago and have worn in it 30+ degree F weather. It's fairly warm. I bought a size small. I have broad shoulder and short torso and weigh 111lbs and height 5'3". It's great, stylish and warm. I can fit a sweater under it as well however slightly tight but I don't mind. I originally got the medium and the sleeves were too long and I looked frumpy. My only complaint would be that I think it could be a little bit warmer and also the feathers keep poking out and I am pulling feathers out daily ...... Not quite sure if this is normal. Got a great price and customer service at moose jaw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coat This coat is a little longer than most and received excellent reviews on other sites, so I went to check it out. It seems thin for the 600 fill, but good quality. I tried it on and realized that I would need a large if I would need to layer, I have a north face osito I usually wear under all of my coats, I tend to get cold easily. This coat had plenty of room in the large, but the medium, what I normally would wear, was pretty tight against my bust area, without any sweaters or osito. The length of the sleeves were perfect for me, I don't have particularly long arms, but this year I have not found any coats other than patagonia, that don't show my wrists when I reach out or up. This would have been a go for me, but after trying the down with it, I decided to go for that one. This seems like a really great coat though. I'm 5'8 130 lbs, 36 bust.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice coat! This coat is great, and is very flattering. It fits a little slimmer than most down jackets, lessening the "Michelin man" look that makes me feel like a dough boy. The only strange thing about this coat is the collar; it looks cool, but if you have long hair (like I do), you must wear it in a ponytail or else it gets stuck in the collar in peculiar places. Overall, I recommend this coat for warmth and style!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sleeves were WAY too long. Must return. So sad. I had been eyeing this coat since last season. It was too late in the season last year when I discovered it and I missed out. I was so excited to find it on Moosejaw (with the 20% off anniversary sale - Patagonia rarely have sales). When it arrived I noticed there was quite a bit of material bunching in the elbow. When I pulled the sleeve down all the way, only my fingertips were visible. I am 5'5" and weigh 150 pounds, athletic build. The small is too small and the medium, which is the size I ordered, is perfect everywhere except the sleeve. Sleeve length is a dealbreaker. Why Patagonia, why?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cozy to the max in the frozen tundra! I love this coat! I wear it to fend off Wisconsin winters, and I haven't been cold yet. It's like wearing a giant down blanket. I love the collar/hood, too. It ups the cozy/warmth factor substantially! However, if I had my way, I'd tweak a few items: - It sheds feathers. Not a ton, but enough that I hesitate to wear the coat if I'm going somewhere I need to look nice. - The coat is pretty slim and sleek, but that means anything in the pockets (like gloves) makes you look lumpy. All in all, a high-quality, warm, cute coat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great winter jacket! I love love love this jacket! It has kept me toasty warm in below zero temps here in Wisconsin. The length is great, just below my knees. The fit is very flattering for a down jacket. It is not boxy like many others. The two way zipper is very convenient when driving. The hood is different from others that I've had, but now that I'm used to it I wouldn't change a thing about it. It forms a nice, warm, cocoon around my head and doesn't fall down in the wind. I am 5'5" and 115 lbs and the size small fits perfectly. Winters are definitely more enjoyable now that I have this jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I purchased this a month ago, just in time before cold weather started kicking in. It keeps me super warm on those really cold mornings or nights when I'm taking my puppy out. On top of Patagonia's amazing ethics & quality, I love how it looks! Having a great jacket like this will most definitely help me enjoy being outside in the cold all winter!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cold weather coat I bought this for cold Chicago weather. I usually wear a small but like to layer a lot in winter so ordered the medium. It's a little longer than I expected but looks good. I had trouble with the zipper when I was trying it on. I hope that does not become a problem for me. Otherwise I am looking forward to wearing this

Trying to determine if i should order a l or xl. I am 5'7". Wt is 155.  36 bust.  The downtown parka says fitted and i usually have a sweater or sweatshirt on...help. size chart says L

Asked by: speechy
Hey there, Thanks for reaching out to us! If you ever find yourself between two sizes with a particular piece of apparel, I would most often error on the larger size, especially if you want to layer underneath.

How does this coat compare with the Patagonia Fiona down coat in terms of thickness and warmth? Thank you.

Asked by: Yann
Hey there, The Patagonia Downtown Parka and the Patagonia Fiona Parka are both slim fit, water resistant and have 600-fill power duck down. The Downtown Parka is longer and sits below-the-knee while the Fiona Parka ends above-the-knee. The Fiona Parka is also windproof.

Is there fleece inside the hand pockets?

Asked by: Kind
Hey there, thanks for reaching out to us! This jacket has fleece inside the pockets however the entire pocket is not fleece-lined. Kind of tricky! Only one side of the pocket is lined with fleece, and it's the side that is closest to the outer fabric of the jacket (does that make sense?) it's the side that the back of your hands would touch while you have them in your pockets. I hope this helps!

what's a good way to measure sleeve legnth? I am not particularly long-armed, but find when I reach forward, my wrists often show in most longer parkas I've tried. I see above that a reviewer noted longer sleeves, so I'm a little excited to try this coat
