Description

If boxing had an ultra-light weight class, then the Patagonia Women's Ultralight Fiona Parka would be its champion. Technical performance and weather shedding protection in a feminine and flattering silhouette, we wouldn't want to take this one on in a fight.

Borrowing features from the alpine line, the Ultrlight Fiona is designed with the luxurious, insulated warmth of 800-fill-power premium goose down as well as an ultra durable abrasion resistant shell. The Deluge® DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish and attached hood keep out the rain and snow (or that lovely combination of the two) while the thigh length gives you added protection and a touch of sophistication. Great for walking Max on snow covered country roads or for navigating icy city streets on the morning commute, the Patagonia Ultralight Fiona Parka for women will triumph over all cold weather adversity.

Good Purchase
December 16, 2012

Bought this for my girlfriend. She is 5'5'' and 105 lbs (typically size 0). I bought the x-small size which fits very well, but no room for layering (that is her only complaint about the jacket). The Fiona is slim fit, water repellant, light, and easy to pack. The cut is slimming. It is fairly warm, but not as warm as the Patagonia Down Sweater. It is a great piece to walk around town/participate in non-high output activities. Overall, a very nice coat for going to work and around town. Not for backcountry/high output activities.

Most flattering parka, light insulation
February 25, 2012

I tried on several parka styles before settling on the Ultralight Fiona as the best combination of lightness, warmth, and water resistance. It works well for DC winters (ave lows in the 30's) - I might choose a heavier down coat if I lived somewhere colder/wetter/windier. SIZE: The cut is very slim, almost like a dress as some reviewers describe it. (I am 5ft, wear a 4-6 in most things, am normally a small in Patagonia clothes. Just bought a small Capilene top, in fact, which fits perfectly.) Had to return the small in this parka and get a M instead. There was absolutely no room for any layers in the S, only a longsleeved T, and I was afraid to cross my arms when it was zipped up. In M I can wear a longsleeved top and a Nano Puff vest or thin cash hoody. I tried on L as well but the shoulders were too wide and everywhere along the torso was too loose. Even so, it was still slimmer than the other parkas I tried on (Down with It, Yume, the regular Fiona (non-ultralight, no hood)). WARMTH: The 800-fill down is almost alarmingly thin, but I went out today in 40-mph winds/30-degree weather (with the Nano vest and longsleeved wool top) and am happy to report that it was quite warm and windproof. I was also caught in a brief squall yesterday and stayed dry for the few minutes it took to walk to my car. Coat did not soak thru and the water shook off easily. It does not feel as warm as the TNF Yume did - that one felt as cozy as a sleeping bag - but the tradeoff is that it is lighter, more compact, and comfortable enough to keep on when I run inside for a few minutes (i.e. gas station or a store). That is, I don't have to immediately take it off for fear of overheating, then having to carry it in my arms. DESIGN: The princess seams and narrow channel quilting make this a versatile coat - suitable for urban adventures while also serving a technical purpose. The hood was much better than the TNF Yume - stays on without obscuring vision, can be used with or without a hat. I preferred the cut and exterior material of this to the Patagonia Down With It - this is sleeker, dressier. OTHER NOTES: The Ultralight Fiona has a hood, which the regular (non-UL) Fiona lacks. I wish this parka had an internal zipped pocket and a powder skirt, but understand that those features would add to the weight. I would be interested in seeing a slightly thicker material (less prone to snags), even if there was a small tradeoff in weight. Wish I could've taken advantage of the sales but my size was sold out (then it really would have been great value). I hope Patagonia reissues this model - the hood, water resistance and crossover design make this a winning jacket.

Pros: Great design, Ease of use

stunning coat
October 21, 2011

This parka is super stylish and featherlight. The fit is outstanding and slimming (I am pregnant and due in 2 months, I barely can zip it up but it looks still flattering...). It does run small, chest measurement of the medium is 19" and waist is 17" so I would say it runs one size smaller. It has not been very cold so far so I do not know how it performs when the temperatures drop. But it will be a great travel companion as it packs really small. The fabric is shiny but very stylish, perfect for dressier occasions especially because there is no chest/shoulder logo (like on the TNF Metropolis parka). It has a two-way zipper which I always find a plus (especially in my current situation). The hood is not removable but lays flat and is not in the way of my long hair.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, slimming, lightweight and not bulky

All-around great jacket
November 13, 2012

I love this jacket....warm and stylish, but not too bulky. I always get compliments when I wear it. I also love that it keeps me warm outside, but I don't get overheated while inside, like when I am in the city going in and out of buildings. It is a little smaller than I thought it would be, but I can still wear a long sweater under it.

literally, ultralight and warm
January 25, 2012

I just love this coat... It is literally ultralight, warm and nice-looking coat I have been looking for. Even though it is pricey for me, I like everything about this coat... but one thing, the zipper part looks a little bit uneven. But besides, it is just perfect!

Well-made warm coat but runs very small
November 02, 2011

I am consistently a small in Patagonia clothing (even the slim-fitting capilene garments) but this coat runs very slim. It barely fits so there is no chance for layering. I will definitely exchange for a medium because the coat is very warm, well-made, and durable.

Warm lightweight parka
November 11, 2012

Love this lightweight parka! I wear this by itself in 40 to 50 degree temperatures. I wear it under a shell for 30 degree temperatures or in the rain. I like the hood for extra warmth. The little bag is handy for compressing it down for easy packing or creating a small pillow. Very flattering streamlined fit. I read other reviews & originally sized up. I needed to return it for my usual size. I easily fit a sweatshirt under it in my usual size. I think the bust area is too big for me when I sized up. Smaller busted women might want to stay true to size. I know I will get a lot of use out of this coat in the years to come!

Super-lite, not super warm
January 11, 2012

The Fiona Ultralight is an awesome jacket. I would not recommend it for sub 20 degree weather, but in the high 30's to 40's it will really shine. Fit is wonderful. Excellent shape.

Pros: Great design

great jacket
October 11, 2011

I love this jacket..... it is light, but very warm, and pretty stylish. It fits well, although the design could be a little more fitted around the body, and bottom. The silver color is pretty cosmic, and I like the uniqueness of this, although more color options would be nice. I don't know well this will wear over time as the material is very light. But if you want the warmth, without the bulk or weight, this is a great jacket. The price is the biggest con..... too much money in my opinion.

Patagonia's perfect parka
February 04, 2012

This parka is lightweight, warm, and easy to pack for travel/hiking. i purchased this parka for fall/winter months but find I can use it throughout the spring hiking and camping. It also rolls up into a stuff sack and can be used as a pillow. A perfect parka for year round use.

I love this coat! It fits perfectly - I'm fairly petite and most winter coats just swim on me. This is warm, practical, and flattering. It's perfect for temps in the 25-45 degree range. When it's a bit cooler I wear a warm winter wool sweater under it. But mainly I was looking for a coat that was mid-warmth. My down ankle-length coat is just too warm for most winter days even in Wisconsin. I loved this so much I bought another for my sister!

Weightless warmth
January 19, 2013

The 800 down fill is amazingly light yet warm. The coat looks very cool as well. Flattering, not bulky. Slightly too snug for me in the hips. Otherwise, a fabulous coat.
