I have tried multiple pieces from Patagonia, both new and used. I love their quality and holds up very well over time. That said, I feel that their fit has been consistently weird and awkward on me. I think their clothing might be suited to someone more muscular, shorter, and curvier. I'm tall/thin (normally xs or s at other brands) and I'm usually forced to size up to M because of proportions, but that sometimes doesn't solve the problem and creates other issues. (For example, the down sweaters never fit--small is too small, and medium is simultaneously too long and tight at the hips, XS fits proportionally but it's too tight overall or too narrow in the shoulders). I can weirdly fit into a kids XL most of the time, but the sleeves are usually too short. Pants/bottoms also do not fit, have never been able to fit into their pants, despite trying multiple sizes and not even accounting for length/inseam. Something about the sizing or fit model must be super weird.
