Not warm enough...

This is sooooo cute! I really wanted to love it, I love my other Patagonia gear. Super light-- perhaps too light. It would work as a layering piece... I would suppose that is the intention. But I really wanted a great everyday down jacket for our baby, and this won't do the trick without fleece underneath and maybe even a shell on top, and even more layers for a weekend hike (she'd be riding in the backpack or sled). Even after leaving it out to fluff up for a week (and helping it out a bit) there isn't much loft in the arms. I just can't see it being warm enough for our western NY winters. Patagonia, how come you don't make a beefier baby jacket... something like the hi-loft in baby sizes? Why not 800 fill power, like the adult versions? We bought a competitor's jacket instead- it passed the at-home warmth test.

Just buy it. You need it.

This is the perfect coat for adults and kids and babies. Spring, fall, and even winter (and even cold summer nights) the baby down sweater keeps kiddo warm. It isn't cheap, of course, but it is an investment. But a little bit big and it'll last for a LONG time. My (large) 2.5 year old has been wearing his 24 month sized one since he was 18 months and it still fits now at 30 months. His earlier versions of this coat are now on their 4th child. Babies and toddlers can really move in this coat, which isn't the case for most warmer jackets. It is easy to put them in a carseat or a stroller or a carrier when they're wearing this because it is so thin. Also it is easy to wash - just wipe off with a babywipe or run through the wash if it is really dirty.

Missed the mark on COLORS winter 2011-12

As covered by previous reviews, the Down Sweater is fabulous, so it gets four stars. One tick off because the colors this season are not. Pink Moon is so light that darker down feathers show through in spots, not to mention the anxiety of such a light color on the playground. Magenta is burgundy in person, and a dark dull version at that, no where near the bright punch of color expected as "magenta," and definitely too drab for a toddler. (The stores are only sorted for Pink Moon of the two pinks, so we learned this by order and waiting and disappointment. At least the store will kindly accept our return.) We would consider the nice Fern green ("boys") for our daughter, but it happens to not go with her skin tone. So, the Baby Down Sweater is a miss for us 2011-12. Oh, well.

Best lightweight jacket

We purchased this sweater in size 12 M for our son and he wore it from when he was 9 mo and just outgrew it at 18 months. He is also a very tall baby (95 percentile for ht. and 75 for wt). We live in Seattle and he wore this acket from fall through winter (as a layer) and summer on cooler days. Very comfortable for stroller, car seat, never hot but warm enough. It looks great on, the blue color is beautiful. We just ordered another one in size 3T color Fire. I think this will be a jacket that we will buy over and over. Great hand-me-down. Even after months of wear, it showed no signs of wear.

best baby purchase

I bought this coat for my 6 month old baby girl, and she wore it every day all winter long! I loved that she could move easily in it, and it compresses down so that I could throw throw it into her diaper bag when she wasn't wearing it. She is over a year now, and still fits into it on chilly spring days. The 6 month size fit her from 13-22 lbs, and we already bought another for next season. I can't recommend this coat enough - we live in Seattle, and winter is pretty mild, so she didn't need much else, but on really cold days I just threw a fleece on under it.

Buy it!

We layered cotton/fleece sweaters and bulky jackets for our daughter's first four months, thinking (wrongly) that a down jacket would be money wasted. I'm so glad we finally got this jacket! It's incredibly warm and doesn't get in the way of her car seat straps, yet she doesn't overheat when we're inside. We sized up to the 6 month size, and I am guessing she'll be able to wear it up to her first birthday, maybe longer. (Patagonia kids stuff seems to run quite large.) We are already purchasing next year's jacket during the end of season sale. Just buy it -- this is the ONLY jacket you will need for baby!

Amazingly versatile

Three years ago I scoffed at myself for spending $$$ on a down sweater for my little guy - knowing he would quickly outgrow it. I quickly realized it was a bargain! Going from inside to outside it is usually tough to keep an infant comfortable (zipping, unzipping, etc). Somehow, my son was just magically always comfortable with this sweater! Now he is on his third down sweater (wearing it almost every day). We gave the little down sweater to a friend whose daughter similarly loved it. This week we got it back for our new little boy. I'm sure this sweater will keep many more babies comfortable in years to come!

Totally worth it

Just bought my little boy his second Baby Down Sweater. All I can say is, just get it. I buy end of season to get a deal. For sizing reference-- at 9months I bought him size 18month because I wanted it to last, and it did. He is 21 months now and it still fits, though short and probably too small to layer with a fleece. This year, at 21 months, I bought him size 2T, it's still roomy and I wonder if it will fit him next winter. Didn't want to size up to 3T because felt like it would be too big this year.

This is a must have item!

I have bought my son one of these jackets for each of the 3 winters he's been alive and I can truly say it is one of the only must have items for winter in the southeast. It fits really well in his carseat so it is perfect for those store to store jaunts I seem to be dragging him to all the time. He is a regular sized 2 yr and 3 month old and I bought the 3T to be sure it lasted through the winter, I was afraid it would be too big for now but it looks great!

Best coat for babies!!

This is by far the best coat for babies! As the mother of twin 10 month olds-it is very important to find the perfect product at a good value. This coat is perfect for my boys. Buy it a little big and it can be worn for all three seasons. It is the one coat that we found that keeps the boys comfy cozy in their car seats, without all the bulk. Just get it-I guarantee you will be passing it on to your friends and family too!

Negative Reviews:

Not going to cut it...

I completely agree with the previous poster that it isn't warm enough for winters in the North East. It could be ok with a few layers underneath, but that is not what I was looking for. It feels way too light for the winter. And I found the overall fit too boxy and big for my 3.5 year old. He's on the upper range of height and weight too. I returned it and also got a competitor's down jacket for my son, and it is perfect.

Adorable But Too Lightweight

This jacket is absolutely adorable, but 1 -for the price, just not warm enough and 2- I ordered paintbrush red and the jacket is pumpkin orange (nowhere close to red). We are in East Tennessee so we get plenty of cold days but not as consistently cold as other areas of the country. I would have to use this as a layering jacket on really cold days, and that's not what I was looking for. I bought it because it wasn't puffy and didn't have a hood thinking it would go well into the carseat and stroller. Can't decide whether to return or not. So cute but will still need a warmer coat!
TnMama at Patagonia on 11/25/2012

it's ok

This "sweater" is nice and versatile and layers well. However we've had it for just a few weeks and the feathers are coming out. In addition, it is not as warm as you might think as it is not the slightest bit wind-resistant. Also, I wish it had a hood. I'm a fan of hoods in most baby jackets, sweaters, and cardigans. The bast part about this jacket is that, being down, it is very breathable and adapts well to being in and out of the car, shops, etc.

Poor Fabric

The pink color is so light in such a light weight fabric that the feathers can be seen through giving the jacket an odd generalized, spotty, dirty look. Other than that, I expect the jacket would have been wonderful for Minnesota winter errands - getting in and out of the car seat when true snow suit attire is not needed.
