The Patagonia Down Sweater Hoody is like the minivan of down jackets: highly functional, reliable, totally lovable--and it accommodates the whole family. No joke, they have it in baby sizes (it's even reversible, for those on-the-road spit-up emergencies). The Down Sweater Hoody remains a tried-and-true standby of the outdoorswoman wardrobe. It does not stand out in any one category--rather, it performs above average in all of our rating metrics. Add to this Patagonia's ongoing commitment to ethics and high-quality products, and we felt all warm and fuzzy inside.
Though no longer offered in the fun hot pink we tested, Patagonia is continuously offering new colors for this staple in their line. See the navy blue with turquoise accents above, which is one of the current options to choose from.
