Vapor light, the Women's UL Down Shirt is fashioned with Patagonia's lightest-weight ripstop nylon fabric ever used for their down garments. Twice as strong and half the weight of other fabrics in the line, this down puffy is treated with a Deluge DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish for additional protection from the elements. Insulated with premium 800 fill goose down, this down shirt makes the perfect winter midlayer, wears well as a toasty summer belay jacket, and is an excellent stand-alone shell during the moderate shoulder-seasons. Offering a super luxurious feel with pack-to-nothing compressibility, the UL Down Shirt features a wavy sewn-through all-over construction with just the right amount of down in the right places for optimum versatility during an array of activities. A slim silhouette with a low bulk ┬╝ zipper, wear this pullover as an aerobic outer layer when skinning into the Stanley Mitchell Hut, throw a shell over it for the ultimate BTU generator when breaking for lunch, and keep it on for water bucket runs back and forth from the refugio. The Patagonia Women's UL Down Shirt is recyclable through the Common Threads Recycling Program.

this sweater is awesome. It is lightweight and easy to pack. The only downside, is that there are no pockets. It is truly a sweater. This is a great piece to take in the backcountry. It is light and versatile and very warm.

I absolutely adore this product. When you have it on you feel delightfully warm with no weight on you at all. I can take it everywhere and scrunch it into my purse when I no longer need it. I have this in two colors already and hope they make some new ones. I have gotten so many complements on the look and yet I bought it originally for the light weight warmth. So it is styling as well! I take an XS in all Patagonia products and this fits as it should. A definitely YES to this!

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Ease of use, Cons: Cost

Exactly as described. I was looking for a packable down sweater with minimal weight. Packs small, and is super lightweight.True to size for what is is supposed to be, fits more like a sweater or thin fleece. I am 5'4", 135 lbs, 36B, size 6-8 in tops and size 8 in bottoms. I was between sizes and chose smaller size. Small fits me well with a slim fit. I can fit it over a base layer or even a very thin sweater. If you want to wear it over thicker layers and are between sizes, or if you want it roomy, then I would size up.Lagoon color is as pictured, nice vivid blue. If I look closely in bright light, some dark down feathers are visible through the jacket. This may be more noticeable and bother some people in the lighter color jackets. Great lightweight design by Patagonia!

Purchased this item for an upcoming backpacking trip. I loved the light weight and the luxurious feel of the fabric. It fit well and looked great. The attached stuff sack was a nice touch.

Patagonia Women's Ultralight Down Shirt
November 20, 2011

I really wanted one of these, so I purchased it, along with a nano puff pullover. I compared the two of them, and sent back the Ultralight Down Shirt. The nano puff is much more comfortable and it is definitely warmer, which surprised me. I also didn't like the fact that you can see the down clumps through the shell on the UL down shirt. I was chilly in my shoulders in the UL, yet warm in the nano puff. Considering the nano puff pullover is $100 less than the UL down shirt, I certainly didn't think it was worth it. Even if I had to fit everything into a small backpack for a trip - the nano puff is more versatile, as it can get wet and still keep you warm.

Pros: Build quality, Ease of use, Cons: wasn't warm enough for the price
