The first time I saw this Patagonia jacket was on my uncle, it looked super warm and comfortable. I knew at that moment I had to get myself one ASAP. It is slim fit so it's totally a bonus when it is a snug fit! Definitely invest into one of these Patagonia jackets it's worth every penny.
"Excellent Piece, It's Major Attribute Though Is As a Layer"
The Ultralight is awesome when it's in the 40's without a lot of wind. Weighs virtually nothing. Looks good, what the others have said. And, it hasn't been as sensitive to abrasion or tearing as I first feared, but still be careful. Where the Ultralight really performs though, is that as long as your exterior layer is not form-fitting, you can layer this little jacket in between base layer(s) and exterior layer, and get another 15 to 20 degrees with virtually no weight or the irritating bulk you get with pile or wool. And it comes with a little stuff sack for stowage. Really nice to fine tune your insulation on the fly like this, urban or wild. I first tried this concept with the Patagonia down jacket, and it was just too thick between my base layer(s) and say a Patagonia Primo Down or Canada Goose Langford, and down hugged my arms etc., but the Ultralight is perfect.
I have received a few compliments on this jacket. I either get the "oh damn, that jacket really works for you" or the "are you wearing your sisters coat?" either way, I keep warm, so i really could care less. The jacket is super light, and comes with its own stuff sack. I am 5'7" and about 170 and wear a large, which fits kind of loose around the waist, but any smaller and it feels like an anaconda is constricting around my shoulders. Also, the lemongrass color is a little feminine, but as stated previously, who really cares, as long as you are warm!
The fit is a little tight for my taste, but it has been a bomber addition to my gear cache. I am 6'2" and about 180 pounds with excessively long monkey arms, which is why I feel like the coat is a little tight. Definitely a must have for folks that spend a ton of time outside.
I like this jacket because it packs down extremely small in your pack, weighs very little, and packs a surprising amount of warmth for its size. I found myself picking this over the much bulkier Phantom 800 jacket (MH) just because it takes up so much less room and is almost as warm. Its a must if you plan on layering up on your next backcountry trip or need a jacket "just in case" it gets cold on your next alpine summer adventure.
I bought this jacket as an insulated layer for a bigger puffy jacket. The idea was that together they would be warm enough for sub-zero temperatures, but I wouldn't be saddled with one enormo jacket that might be too warm for the warmer-cold temperatures. In the end, I wore this jacket much more often than the bigger jacket, because this one is so light and warm. You can't believe how warm it is, because it weighs almost nothing. I read that it had a "slim fit," but I found that it fits true to the other Patagonia down jackets (the Nano, the sweater, etc.). For me, Patagonia jackets run big - I bought this in a Medium and still have some room, even though in most other brands I am a Large. This jacket packs up into nothing, and comes with its own little stuff sack. I got mine in black, and it is VERY shiny. It's probably too shiny for me to wear on a regular basis, but maybe you're looking for something with a little flare. Either way, I love it.
