Avoid this jacket

Without naming specific brands I am very familiar with these so called microlight down jackets, having owned quite a few. I have no particular brand loyalty. This particular jacket I bought from a reputable High street seller at a discounted price of £125 (down from £210).

What an absolute shocker. I will never buy PATAGONIA again.

Within one week I sussed out that having the side zip pockets open was a very bad idea. The stitching on the arm was so poor that it kept catching. The first time it pulled I put it down to bad luck so I pulled the stitch through the coat with a needle and tied it off on the inside. Imagine my frustration when exactly the very same thing happened on the other sleeve. The only way to stop the arm catching on the zip was to keep the pockets zipped shut (ahem).

These minor issues are nothing compared to the main zip. This zip fouled on the way down every single time I used it. I had to physically hold the inner flap back with my right hand to lower the zip with my right hand. That was if I remember. Try to lower the zip with one hand and your in a world of pain. The zip was so badly stitched in that on more than one occasion I had to take the jacket off over my head as I simply couldn't get the zip down.

Finally the down. 800 fill? I don't think so. This was hopeless in the arms and clumpy every where else.

In the end (just last week as it happens I took the damn thing back. Fair play to the shop though, they completely agreed with my gripes and issued an immediate refund. I am now on the look out for another hooded micro down coat.

This is such a shame as I really like the look, cut and fit of the jacket but with so many negatives on a supposed premium brand it can only be assessed as below par

Since your experiences are so far off from my own with Patagonia products in general, I just like to know if you see any chance that this jacket hasn't been an original one?

Hi Felix

No. Happy it was a genuine product.

I bought the jacket from Blacks. A very reputable outdoor shop in the UK. Tend to review online but buy from a store for just that very reason. Quite genuinely disappointed as I thought the jacket looked fab.

Perhaps I just bought a bad one as you are right, reviews elsewhere are very good. That's why I bought it.
