Perfect Puffy

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Diane the Powderhound from Colorado on Monday, February 15, 2016
My Patagonia puff coat of 15 years needed replacing. The main use I have for this is to throw on over my ski layers when taking a break at top of hill while backcountry skiing, so I ordered a Small hoping it would fit over all my layers (I usually wear XS being 5'2" and 105lbs). It is indeed slightly tight at armpits over all my layers as reported by others, but I don't have broad shoulders so not a problem for me. And yes, the sleeves are quite long, but I love that extra warmth for my hands. So fit was perfect. It serves very well as a warm overlayer, and weighs virtually nothing, so I am not tempted to leave it behind. As a test, I wore it on an hour-long walk in snow with temp about 28F with slight breeze as my outer layer with only 2 thin polypro's underneath, and was just warm enough. I've never owned anything orange before, and I'm loving this great happy color.
