Highlights: 3 Season Ultralight & Compressible Down Jacket – Great for Layering
The Baby Down Sweater from Patagonia is a versatile 3 season ultralight jacket for babies and toddlers. The greatest thing about this piece is that it’s warm and durable but not bulky. Your child can really move in this thin breathable jacket. It’s extremely compressible which means that it takes up very little space in a diaper bag or backpack. The shell is made from 100% all-recycled polyester and is treated with a Deluge® DWR (durable water repellent) finish for shedding wet weather. The jacket is insulated with high-loft, 600-fill-power premium European goose down.

The full-length front zipper features a zipper garage to prevent chin chafe. It has a hand-me-down ID label inside which you’ll need because Patagonia gear doesn’t wear out. I love that there is no hood to get in the way of strapping baby into the carseat or stroller. Instead, use an adorable hat to go with this jacket. This wind and water resistant Baby Down Jacket works well for most fall, winter and early spring days and is easy to layer since it’s so thin and compressible. The Down Sweater also comes in children and adult sizes.
