Great town jacket
I bought this jacket for 10-20 weather and it works great with a heavy fleece under it. It's not as warm as i would have liked but works great as a stand alone piece when the weather is over 30. I love the color and the length. The sleeves are quite wide and i wish there was elastic at the cuffs since wind, cold air will quickly make its way through. If you wear gloves over the cuff it will fix the problem. It is quite stylish and works well for around town. I don't know if i would ever take it out hiking, the outer surface looks prone to pick-tear. I am 5'4" slim, and a small was a bit large, great for layering.
I love Patagonia down
The Patagonia Downtown Loft Jacket is AMAZING! I love the warmth it provides in a svelt, chic package!! I think it's sized a bit large so I downsized to not feel as a marshmallow. I am thrilled with my purchase and can attest to 3 months of wearing that it is effective, very cute, I love the neck wrap (which acts scarf-like), washes well, and I've spilt coffee on it twice and it repelled both times! I cannot praise this jacket nor Patagonia down products enough. And I had a very pleasant and efficient shopping experience with Altrec. Love love and highly recommend.
this is the perfect winter jacket
I read about 70 reviews on this jacket before buying it. I finally took the plunge and ordered it to europe where I had just moved. I didn't want to look like a michelin man, but didn't want to freeze. I got this coat in pearl and it's beautiful!!! It is not bulky, but keeps warm, and fits so well. It is so warm, and beautiful. I recommend it to anyone trying to keep warm but look good while doing it. this is the exact coat I've been needing for years! I am 5,7", 130 lb, and the small is perfect. can fit clothes under. or could have gotten XS without much room for layers.
