perfect winter / ski jacket
Perfect fit, and extremely comfortable fit. Love this jacket. I bought the pearl/ lime green and the color combination is really nice. Keeps you warm and dry, yet doesn't feel bulky. Perfect for layering. I will keep this coat for years and years to come.

Patagonia Pipe Down
I purchase the jacket for my girlfriend who wanted a jacket that had a hood and would keep her warm skiing in MT and this jacket fit the bill! Puffier but warmer than the down sweater and over all weight to warmth ratio is awesome!

Warm and comfy - nice fit
I purchased this jacket during the 2009/2010 season in dark dark purple and got compliments all over the place whenever I wore it. I found it to be comfortable, warm, and a great fit, so I ordered the same jacket in cream/winter white at the end of the 2010/2011 season for use next year. I will admit that I've not used this jacket for skiing, but I likely will at some point, and I think it will be great. I really like the fit, as it's not bulky, and is flattering for such a warm coat. I'm 5'8", 135lb, 34b chest, lean build, and the sz M is perfect. I have a very straight figure, so I do not have an issue with the Patagonia fit in the hip or chest area. Highlights are an adjustable fit powder skirt, extra soft and cozy fleece in the hand-warmer pockets and along the neck panel, a warm hood that can easily be worn with or without a helmet (and actually fits really well and doesn't look weird without a helmet), and a mid-length cut that functions well for sport or general wear. I generally think Patagonia is higher priced than other brands for similar products, but this jacket is worth the Patagonia price tag. I live in the Philadelphia suburbs where winters can be windy, cold, and damp (for months), and I've found this coat to be plenty warm when layered with a sweater and tee in windy temps in the teens. Everyone's body is different though, so that's only my experience. I do regularly spend time outside in all seasons.
