As soon as I put it on, I understood why they call it a “sweater.” The Patagonia Down Sweater is super lightweight — it feels more like a sweater than a performance jacket.

It’s available in a range of colors including Amaranth (a hot pink-purple with eye-catching contrasting trim). I wore it immediately and enjoyed its warmth and comfortable fit.

Patagonia’s Down Sweater is made of 22-denier 100% recycled polyester ripstop with Deluge DWR finish. The fabric feels strong and durable and admirably repels water.

The 800-fill down is extremely lightweight and warm. The lightness of the fill makes the jacket very comfortable—some down items feel restrictive due to their bulkiness. This jacket is no weightier than a favorite fleece yet offers the warmth, water repellence, and wind resistance of heavier options.

Until this year, your biggest winter fear was the Yeti. Now you awaken drenched in sweat from nightmares of The Polar Vortex. It's a good thing you've the awesomely updated Women's Down Sweater Jacket from Patagonia to fend off frigid temps and arctic blasts. 800-fill down comes from happy geese to fill out this form-flattering jacket. The feathers squish into a tight bundle to keep the jacket on small and hidden when you're not wearing it, whether space is special because you're living in a micro apartment on the Bay or you're on a three-week yurt tour in Switzerland. Recycled polyester ripstop won't let the day-to-day bumps and snags unravel you or the jacket. The DWR finish turns snow into roller balls that slid off the jacket surface. Horizontal baffles are sewn through to prevent the goose from going places. The sweetly-treated geese who gave their feathers never felt the cool breezes on their featherless skin, nor were force-fed for future foie-gras feasting. Two zippered hand pockets hold your goods, be it candy and lipbalm, cheese-sticks and turkey jerky, or a smartphone and credit cards. With a slightly more sleek shape and robust (yet lightweight) fabrics, the revised Down Sweater Jacket protects you from the cold and wind, wherever life takes you.
