my wife and I both have Pat down sweaters- very well constructed, full featured, DWR is very good, but still pretty light

I've since gotten a MB ex light that I use for summer trips (right at 1/2 the weight) and will probably get one for my wife as well- but for shoulder seasons and winter trips the Patagonia sweater will be the one that gets packed

Janet - This is a really nice-looking jacket and for day hikes I think it will work really well. And I thank you SO much for bringing up the sizing issue. That's been my gripe of all these manufacturers who produce women's versions of outdoor clothing, because they seem to think outdoorswomen shouldn't be any larger than a size 12 or 14. Well, excuse me for the genes I carry! Why is it that MEN'S outdoors clothing comes in sizes to accommodate men, no longer how large they are, but we women are relegated to just a few sizes? I'm tired of trying to beat my body into a size that will satisfy these stupid manufacturers! However, I do commend Patagonia, because they seem to realize that women do come larger and they have a line of plus-sizes - not as large a line as I'd like - but at least it's something.

Oops! A sentence in my posting should have read, "...no matter how large...", not "...no longer...". As you can see, this subject gets me riled! LOL
