Does anyone else's Primo Down jacket leak down like crazy?

I have skied in mine for at least 14 days and it keeps leaking down evenly.

Doubt it. I bought it at the Patagonia store in Seattle.

Patagonia has been great and they have happily offered an exchange or refund. I love the jacket (apart from the leaking) and just want to find out if it's an inherent problem with these jackets. If it is, I don't want to waste time getting another one.

Surely someone out there has the same Patagonia jacket........

I have the Rubicon Down jacket: not as high-tech as the Primo Down, but still a hard-shell synthetic down. No problems so far. You probably have a defective product, as Patagonia's stuff tends to be as reliable as anything sold.

I have the Patagonia Primo jacket (non-down version, just the shell). I've worn mine through every type of precipitation imaginable over the past couple seasons, and I have yet to get wet. I think you just have a defective product.

down jackets are usually made for cold weather, not wet. So they would put more focus on the breathabilty not the waterproofing I think.

usually the stuff is great for the conditions that it is made for. medium? want to sell it? not much rain in banff in the winter

I take it the problem is that the down is falling out of it, not that water is leaking into it.

You could return it, sure. But leaky down jackets and duct tape patches go together like beer and sausages.

Patagonia is more like champagne and caviar. I love beer, but if I'm paying for Dom Perignon I'm not going to be happy with Coors light.

Try one more at if that leaks .... return it. Usually good stuff.

My 35 year old Gerry was puffing feathers this morning when I went for the paper. Of course I've rebuilt three MG's in it in an unheated garage and beat the snot out of it for years. All wounds were infilcted.

Nah .... that stuff is too expensive to let it ride ... go for a new one.
