Patagonia Women's Ultralight Down Hoody
Winter can be tough when it comes to hefting gear to your favorite fun field; when the Old Man bites it takes layers of insulation/weather protection to stay warm, and carrying stuff takes energy. When Patagonia built the Women's Ultralight Down Hoody they designed the ultimate warmth-to-weight-ratio layering piece with you in mind. Offering exceptional mobility, this hoody is insulated with premium 800-fill-power European goose down that retains the best of toasty body heat, while wrapped in a super lightweight nylon ripstop shell fabric that is DWR (Durable Water Repellent). Incredible - the Down Hoody is half the weight and has twice the strength of Patagonia's other down shell fabrics. As you set your uptrack for the Meany Crest this insulator's sewn-through construction with tight channel pattern provides just the right amount of down displacement for those versatile times when the temps moderate and you're less aerobic. Upon descent back to the mountain hostel the slim silhouette of this Patagonia down sweater/jacket with its low-profile, adjustable hood makes it a perfect lounge around town comforter. Load up its one zippered chest and two zippered handwarmer pockets with essentials and head on out for a second round of adventures.

This jacket is perfect for cold weather. It's like wearing a thick hoodie but much more comfortable and warm, without the weight and bulk. The fabric has a shine to it making it very stylish and hip and it's so versatile that you can wear it with anything! It barely feels like you're wearing any jacket at all and the ability to fold it up into the sack makes it so easy to shop without carrying a big jacket around. The horizontal lines of the seams are so nice and the overall slim fit is very sleek. It is a much better design than the original down sweater jacket, in my opinion. I normally wear a small or medium but this jacket was too roomy in the medium, so I purchased the small.
