Patagonia Women’s Down Sweater Hoody Review
The latest women’s version of Patagonia’s Down Sweater Hoody packs impressive warmth for its weight. Insulated with 4 ounces of lofty 800-fill down, the hoody is warmer than Arc’teryx Cerium Hoody and less insulated than Rab’s Microlight Alpine Down Jacket (5.3 oz. of 850-fill down in a size small). It’s also available without a hood for $50 less.
The Women’s Hooded Sweater coat is a great womens hooded sweater coat choice for fall and winter. The jacket has a double zip, hood and insert pockets for added comfort. It is made of Irish cable knit and comes in a wide variety of colours.
Patagonia updated the popular down sweater with recycled shells and lower weight, a new collar and baffle design, and a few small improvements like one inner zipper chest pocket for stashing a Clif Bar during or after high-intensity aerobic activities and stretch cuffs that prevent rogue snow or wind from creeping up your sleeves.
This womens hooded sweater coat is made from a combination of cotton, nylon, and polyester. It also features two fleece-lined hand-warmer pockets and stretch cuffs that help keep your hands warm and comfortable while you’re outdoors. It also has one inner zipper pocket at womens hooded sweater coat chest level, which is ideal for those who often become hangry during or shortly after high-intensity aerobic activities like trail running. Buttery YKK zippers and stretch cuffs make this jacket both practical and comfortable.
