Great layering and standalone jacket
January 14, 2014

VERY warm with 260 wt merino baselayer in upper 20s while hiking w/out a pack and useful below that while active or w/ a micro fleece over a baselayer. Blocks wind very well. The hoody would really extend this range but so will a shell. Packable, light, and good for breaks in cool weather to keep in the heat. Been careful to avoid snags with this lightweight fabric, so no issues so far. Be careful with the pocket zippers as they can snag easily. Slightly boxy fit in the waist to accommodate layers but hem cords seal out drafts. Shoulders would be too tight for me with a 200 wt fleece. I'm 6-1, 195 pounds, 34 waist, and size 42 jacket. The large fits great but can feel a bit snug across the back when reaching forward with both arms while wearing the light layers underneath. Overall a great warm middle layer and equally good as an outer layer if you're not bushwacking. Got the paintbrush red (it's really orange) for a deal. Definitely worth more but maybe the color wasn't that popular.

I have a couple of these jackets and found them to be surprisingly warm considering how light they are. They are good with just a tee shirt in all but the coldest weather and the nice thing is when you wear them indoors just zip down the front and you won't overheat. They are also great for spring skiing. Highly recommended.

Gift purchase
December 31, 2010

Bought jacket as gift for Christmas for my son. He loves it. Purchased the fog color (lemon-lime green inside) and looks great on him. He is 6ft.3, thin build and the large fits him perfectly. The sleeves could be a tad longer. Got the jacket rather than the pullover since the jacket does have pockets as one other reviewer pointed out (and one inside zipper pocket). Will see how warm it is when he goes back to college in GA compared to FL weather. Especially likes the feature that jacket can be folded into its own pocket to save on space and packing. Definitely will come in handy when studying abroad come 2011. The jacket is machine washable (100% polyester). Only concern that hopefully it won't snag or rip easily. First purchase from Altrec and wonderful service, plus like the return policy and item of the day specials.

January 12, 2012

This jacket is pretty awesome. It is VERY lightweight, but holds warmth surprisingly well. This jacket has a good range of mobility and overall functions great (hood, pockets, zippers). Take care around brambles and beagles- the lightweight fabric does not handle snags and scratches well. The jacket washes (gentle soap, gentle cycle) well. Love the saturated colors!

Wear this all the time!
January 02, 2012

If you are looking for the most comfortable, easy-to-wear, jacket, this is it! True to Patagonia quality, this jacket is top notch in workmanship, style and practicality. I wear it in both the back and front country all the time. It is a perfect "layering layer" and can therefore be worn year round no matter what climate you live in. The packability and fashionability makes it great for travel. As a woman with a slim build and narrow hips (5'7", 128 lbs), I chose the men's size XS and really like the trim fit. Do not pass this one up!

December 26, 2011

Bought this for my husband in L. Fit is a bit large, so exchanged for a medium which was better. We just went on a hike today in 48 degree weather and he only had a thin shirt under the light weight jacket and it was quite warm. Perfect for outdoor hiking and running around town. Excellent for layering in very cold weather. I want to buy one for myself now!

Sent it back because it seemed kind of big. I like my jackets a little more fitted around the waist, this thing was big. I usually wear a large, but going with a medium in this style. I am 5'10", 190 lbs, broad shoulders/long arms and a 34" waist.

May 07, 2013

I was looking for an insulated jacket that was not bulky, but was still warm. It is great for layering under a shell or over other insulating pieces. I am 5' 7" and 144 lbs; the small fits me perfectly. I love that the jacket stuffs into it's pocket. It is easy to through in a bag while traveling or during transitional seasons/weather. I wear this jacket more than I thought I would and it has eliminated the need for many of my other pieces.

awesome full-zip version of the pullover
December 25, 2010

I already had the Nano Puff pullover, which I had bought for its excellent insulation/weight in spite of its being a pullover (as I prefer full-zip, which wasn't available when the Nano Puff first came out). While I've really enjoyed the pullover, and will continue to use it as a mid-layer in the middle of winter, the full-zip jacket version is everything I hoped the Nano Puff would be -- very light weight, very warm for its weight, and great zip off convenience as an outer jacket. AND, Patagonia is making a concerted effort this year (Winter 2010) to standardize its sizing, so you can actually trust that this "Regular Fit" is indeed a regular fit.

I have too much Patagonia gear, but had to get this great jacket. It packs into it's own pocket and weighs nothing. As soon as you put the Nano on you can feel the heat radiant. It is my go to jacket for hikes, platform tennis and will be for snow shoeing. It quickly has become one of my favorite Patagonia winter items.

perfect throw and go jacket
September 27, 2011

I was looking for an easy, throw-on-and-go jacket for the in-between seasons we have in Wisconsin—specifically late autumn and early spring, when the weather tends to be cold, blustery, and highly variable throughout the day. I had considered a number of other Patagonia jackets—the Guide Jacket, for example—but ultimately settled on this due to its relative warmth as well as perceived versatility—wear as an outer layer when it’s breezy but dry, layer under a shell when it’s raining. I previously owned a Patagonia R4 jacket, but felt it was too warm and bulky for the applications for which I wished to use it—namely a 15-20 minute walk to/from work. I also considered the similarly-styled down jackets, but the synthetic materials of the Nano tend to perform better in wet conditions. I’m 5’10”, 165 lbs., and have a slender build. I typically wear medium in Patagonia for their base layers and next-to-base layers, such as the R1 pullover. For jackets, however, where the fit is described as “Regular Fit,” I’m very much a small. Small seemed to fit perfect for this garment, allowing enough space to comfortably layer one or two light layers underneath. It fit fine in the shoulders and sleeves. Others have described this jacket as being like a modern-day bomber jacket and I concur with that assessment in terms of its tailoring--it tends to hit just above the hip and has some bulk that takes a moment to get used to. The bulk tends to flatten after some wear and I believe this isn’t nearly as poofy as the down jackets. It’s very minimal: two zippered hand warmer pockets and a draw-string bottom hem. One feature I thought this jacket could benefit from was a draw-string neck hem. This must be one of the most comfortable jackets by far. It feels exactly like a sleeping bag—the jacket glides over base layers with ease. The Nano is maybe not as warm as I expected, however—it’s not a winter coat in its own right by any means, especially if temperatures are near or below freezing. It seems to function best under a shell, as it is breathable and still keeps you relatively warm in wet conditions. Functioning best under a shell seems to also speak to its relative durability. The threading that holds the synthetic insulation in place seems like it could easily snag on a rock face or pine cone, so I’m not sure if this jacket would perform well scaling a mountain or on a hike through the woods, unless under a durable shell. For my needs to and from work while navigating the sidewalks and crosswalks, I couldn’t ask for a better jacket.

Staple for Travel, Outdoors, & Around Town
September 27, 2011

This jacket is used for just about everything. I've purchased them in several colors. The best feature is its ability to roll itself up inside the chest pocket. They are lightweight enough to always carry in my pack when traveling or hiking. And nice looking enough for around town. This jacket is the warmest jacket i've worn for its weight. Just enough to keep you warm, but not enough to cause overheating when moving around or things start to warm up. The shell sheds snow and rain. A nano puff, fleece, and patagonia rain shadow rain jacket are the perfect layering system IMHO.

May 01, 2013

The Nano Puff is a great jacket, with one exception: The arms are exceedingly long. The quality of its materials and the workmanship are excellent, as with most Patagonia products. So if you have arms like an ape's, this jacket may be ideal for you.

I love my Nano! As with all Patagonia products the quality and fit is excellent. I was surprised just how warm this light weight jacket was alone or layered under a shell in more inclimate weather and when things heat up you can roll it up into its own pocket. Highly recommended for a wide range of temperatures and pursuits whether hiking in the adirondacks or stepping out on Friday night.

Patagonia Nano Puff
May 07, 2013

This is a Patagonia classic. It was built for the outdoors and it functions great. I was surprised how super warm it is. It retains body heat great, and can actually be a little too warm sometimes. Does a great job of blocking the wind too. One of my favorite features is how it packs into it's own tote bag by stuffing it in it's own pocket. Compacts very small and is very packable. There's only two real complaints I have with the jacket, and they aren't major: 1) The zippers can easily get caught on the inside lining material. I can see this being a bigger issue over time, as it could easily rip the thin interior lining. 2) The inside breast pocket isn't the most useful. If you put anything with just a little weight in it, the jacket pulls on the shoulders and at the back of the neck. Not much, but noticeable. Items also flop around too. I tried carrying an Iphone 4 in it, and it looked like I was carrying a brick in my pocket. Overall though, an awesome jacket that I haven't been able to find a better option for.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, packable, light weight, Cons: Cost

December 17, 2011

I was looking for a light weight layering piece for my husband for an expedition during which we will encounter temperatures from 10F to 90F. Since the amount we can take with us is limited I was looking for something very light weight that could be layered with other items. The on-line chat option was very helpful to understand the size and weight of my different options. We are very pleased with this purchase.

Light, Warm, and Delicate
January 17, 2011

These three words describe how I feel about this jacket. I bought the Nano Puff because it was on sale for about $150 rather than paying a whopping $200 retail at brick-&-mortar stores, and I'm glad I did because I wear it practically six days out of the week. The Good. The jacket is very light as if I'm not wearing a jackets this warm. The lightness is achieved by Patagonia's use of Primaloft and 1oz. denier fabric. This doesn't mean the jacket lets cold air in. I can walk around the town in 25-30 degree temperature with just a shirt and the Nano and be fine. The only exception would be on those bitterly cold mornings with 10+ M/H wind that adds wind-chill down to single digits; but then again you should be wearing a hardshell over the Nano in such a weather anyway. The Bad. While the construction of the jacket is really good, I found a few errant strands of thread around the sleeve and the bottom o the jacket. This to me is almost unforgivable for a jacket costing so much. More importantly, I'm concerned that the Nano will not stand up to some hard-wearing. After a couple of weeks of wearing, I noticed that Primaloft threads have been sticking out of the sleeves. I suspect this is due to the Patagonia's use of such a light fabric to achieve low weight. Final Thought. I normally wear 38-39 jacket so I ordered medium Nano thinking I'd be wearing this over a few layers. However because the jacket is so warm by itself I often wear it over a single base-layer and the jacket looks a bit puffy around the torso. Now I wish I had gotten the small. I would recommend trying on the jacket prior to purchasing it online. Overall, this is a great jacket, and get it when they go on sale!

Beautiful jacket
January 25, 2011

Purchased this for (very good) friend -- originally in a Women's style teal. She is an avid skier and hiker, about 5'8 and 160 lbs. She much preferred the look of this jacket in the slightly boxier Men's style, i.e., horizontal channels instead of diagonal and, for that matter, preferred the more understated fog color. The blue is very, very bright. She also has the down sweater, but the Nano Puff is even lighter and feels every bit as good as the down. A very luxurious product. We don't know yet whether it lasts forever, but it looks and feels as though it would.

Excellent Jacket
December 09, 2010

This jacket is one of the best piece of clothing I have gotten for traveling. It was very handy to be able to shrink the jacket to a small sack that I can place in my backpack. It is also very warm and does the most amazing job of keeping out wind. Since it is so light, it is hard to believe that it can do such a good job of keeping warm. I am 5'10" and a medium gave a perfect fit. I was able to wear a few base layers underneath if I wanted to, or was able to put a raincoat or even a heavier layer on top. When my GF saw that I got one, she immediately got the female Nano jacket the next day. She almost wore it everyday on a trip because it was so comfortable and versatile.

Great fall jacket or base layer
January 30, 2012

I mainly use this jacket as a base layer to my gore-tex ski shell. This jacket is unbelievably warm. The only down fall would be that its not very wind resistant. That is why it is best to pair with an outer shell in harsher weather. This jacket is so so so so light and very easily packable. Perfect to take hiking! I have treid some of the heavier down patagonia jackets and find they are a bit too warm for Pennsylvania winters. I find the nano to be just the right amount of warmth for very little bulk. I have this jacket in both the hooded and non-hooded version. They are both great. The hooded version fits well over a helmet. The only reason I have good quality instead of excellent is that I noticed (after many wears and washes) that some of the treading is coming a bit loose, but no big deal. I also wash this jacket quite often on delicate and hang drag it :)

Jacket for Multiple Seasons
March 02, 2011

I had recently purchased a heavy winter coat with a down lining and enjoyed how comfortable and breathable the lining was. It seems that the Puff down coats are in style now and Patagonia has a variety of styles for all climates. The Nano puff is not something you would want to wear in the deep of winter although I have already worn it in 30-40 temps and kept me very warm. The great thing is that it's so light and breathable that you can wear as a light jacket on a hike in the spring and early summer, plus it packs very small you can stuff in a bag. The ONLY thing so far I noticed is the zipper on the pockets tends to stick which is a little annoying but doesn't rip the jacket and easy enough un-stick.

Perfect for travel
December 06, 2010

I have too much Patagonia gear, but had to get this great jacket. It packs into it's own pocket and weighs nothing. As soon as you put the Nano on you can feel the heat radiant. It is my go to jacket for hikes, platform tennis and will be for snow shoeing. It quickly has become one of my favorite Patagonia winter items.

Another great jacket from Patagonia
September 28, 2010

I consider myself a Patagonia junkie (owning at least 6 of their jackets or raincoats) and this is one of their best products to date. The nano is lightweight, comfortable, and exceedingly warm. I have the down sweater zip jacket, which is great for super cold temperatures. The nano, however, is absolutely perfect for cooler temperatures and everyday use in the fall and spring. I got one here in black and should go well with jeans, a night on the town, etc. I am 5'11 and 41 chest -- the large fits me just right.

Nano Puff
March 02, 2013

This jacket is hands down the most useful jacket I own. It can be used stand alone down to around 35 degrees quite comfortably. Put on an R1 underneath and you're good to go down to 20 degrees. The fit is excellent and can be worn comfortably while climbing. This jacket is also super light and packs down really small into it's own pocket, with a loop to hang off the harness. Great piece, I basically live in mine from October through March in Red River Gorge, KY.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: Cost

Definitely recommend. My go-to jacket.
May 07, 2013

I was looking for an insulated jacket that was not bulky, but was still warm. It is great for layering under a shell or over other insulating pieces. I am 5' 7" and 144 lbs; the small fits me perfectly. I love that the jacket stuffs into it's pocket. It is easy to through in a bag while traveling or during transitional seasons/weather. I wear this jacket more than I thought I would and it has eliminated the need for many of my other pieces.

Best Lightweight Jacket I Own
April 17, 2013

I was looking for a Patagonia Nano Puff jacket all winter but couldn't justify retail cost. Had already tried on and knew my size. Patagonia measurement quidelines are fairly accurate. I am 5'7"/135 lb and comfortably wear a medium. When Altrec put the item on sale, I jumped on the opportunity to purchase (thank you Altrec!!). It is the most comfortable item of clothing I own. I wore it as a sole outer layer for Vermont spring skiing; as a supplemental layer when really cold; and my first choice for walks and evenings out. How something so light can be so warm is unbelievable. I also tried on the North Face Blaze Micro which looks and feels comparable to the Patagonia Nano. I liked the additional features of an inner zip pocket and waist drawstring on the Nano, but probably would have been happy with the North Face product. I did not comment on durability given the short time I have owned the product, but my other Patagonia sportswear lasts forever.

Great jacket, very pricey
March 09, 2011

I really like this jacket. I can't really say too much bad about it except for the fact that it's crazy expensive for what it is. I think North Face has a primaloft jacket that's considerably cheaper. However, as a midlayer or even an outer layer under just a t-shirt, it keeps you surprisingly warm. The fit is just right. A great product for warmth without the bulk. I'm not sure how long it will last because the fabric seems so thin, but hopefully it does. Also not sure how it will fair in the rain as an outer layer. I got it wet trying to get out a stain, and tried it on, and it wasn't really that warm. Just cold and clingy. It didn't really repel water, but this is just initial quick observation. I like the jacket a lot, but I'm not sure I'd spend that much for it again. But....in dry, cold weather, it's great.

Great jacket.

Light-weight but yet warm. A medium fits a 5'9 170 lb guy with a bit of room to spare. Outer layer sheds light moisture pretty well. Easily slides on over any type of fabric - unlike a fleece-lined jacket.

Perfect light weight option
December 17, 2011

I was looking for a light weight layering piece for my husband for an expedition during which we will encounter temperatures from 10F to 90F. Since the amount we can take with us is limited I was looking for something very light weight that could be layered with other items. The on-line chat option was very helpful to understand the size and weight of my different options. We are very pleased with this purchase.

A nice, warm, easily packable jacket.
September 20, 2011

I like this! As everyone else has written, it is very light yet warm. I am happy with that. The arms are longer than I expected, which is why I said it "Fits Large." However, that is a nice feature: to be able to pull my hands inside the sleeves for added warmth. I like how the whole things packs into its own pocket and stows easily in my backpack. My only concern about the jacket is the lightness of the fabric, so I don't believe it will be all that durable in repeated, rugged use. Nonetheless, I recommend this jacket.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, and bali blue is a nice color!, Cons: light fabric

Awesome jacket
August 31, 2010

I have the nano puff pullover, and love it. The addition of the full zip makes the jacket even better. I'm a resort skier, so I don't care about the added weight of the full zip. It's a perfect fall and spring jacket worn alone, and a great layering piece in winter. Super light weight and layers easily.

First off, I'm 5'9'' and around 155 lbs. I originally bought the Nano Puff in a small. According to the size chart, that was what I needed. The small was perfect everywhere but in the length. It was just a tad too short. I sent it back and got the medium. The medium was perfect in length but just a little long in the arms but I can handle that. I have worn the jacket in pouring rain and in temps down to around 35. It performed as advertised on both occasions. It shed water and kept me warm and dry. I got the Paint Brush Red which is actually like a blaze orange. Overall, I like the Nano Puff and I am pleased with my purchase. It is comfortable, very light weight, warm and stylish. I wish it had a hood but I couldn't make myself spend the money on the hooded version. Maybe next year.

March 17, 2011

This is a great Fall / Winter / Spring Jacket. Extreme light and compresses really well. The over all jacket is thinner that the Patagonia Down Sweater, feels about the same weight, in that you don't feel it at all. Especially in the arms which is really nice. Able to wear this with just a t-shirt underneath when taking the dogs out for a casual walk. Material is very soft in in cold weather feels really nice on the skin. Could be a little more slim fit around the stomach but other than that I like the cut. Can't speak to long term durability of it yet.

Nano Puff most popular for winter Grand Canyon
February 04, 2013

I bought this jacket for a 9 day backpacking, field-work trip into the Grand Canyon in January. Half of our group had this jacket, in various colors, and it was perfect. The key features that lead me to this purchase included synthetic insulation (I have heard to avoid down if there is a good chance of getting wet and we were working in a stream), extremely lightweight/packable, and because of impressively positive reviews on warmth. In temperatures as low as 15-20 Degrees (F), I am comfortable with a Smart Wool mid-weight base layer and the Nano Puff on top. I added a rain jacket on top during a hike up the North Kaibab Trail when it rained. Those three items were all I really needed to adapt to the conditions we encountered. The next time, I will pack fewer clothing layers, knowing the versitility of the Nano Puff jacket, when combined with other essential layers. In cool weather, this jacket works well over a T-shirt. It does warm up very quickly. Cons - I did find that when busting through brush and branches, that some of my stitching (holding the quilting in place) started to become frayed in one place. I was warned by experienced crew members this would happen, but I accept those risks with field clothing and gear. The stitching is prone to fraying if it is subject to a lot of abrasion, like branches or perhaps rock surfaces. That said, I would still buy this again. The only other con would be that these jackets were so extremely popular, one night counting over 50% of the field crew with the same kind, that I would almost want to at least choose a color that isn't what everyone else is going to be wearing.

Pros: Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, lightweight/packable, Cons: Cost

Beautiful jacket
January 25, 2011

Purchased this for (very good) friend -- originally in a Women's style teal. She is an avid skier and hiker, about 5'8 and 160 lbs. She much preferred the look of this jacket in the slightly boxier Men's style, i.e., horizontal channels instead of diagonal and, for that matter, preferred the more understated fog color. The blue is very, very bright. She also has the down sweater, but the Nano Puff is even lighter and feels every bit as good as the down. A very luxurious product. We don't know yet whether it lasts forever, but it looks and feels as though it would.

Truly great jacket
April 02, 2012

When a friend told me about the Nano Puff jacket, I thought that it was just another trendy jacket for the outdoors but when I tried it on, I understood what she had meant! It immediately felt wonderful on my skin: warm and soft and extremely cozy and I have worn it since that day! It is lightweight, compact and very warm alone, or to layer underneath. It did run a bit on the large size but that's ok as that is good for layering. It runs a bit large in the body but not as large around the hips so you might have to order a bigger size than you would have liked if you want it to close, but I didn't mind, it is truly a wonderful product and will be great for backpacking for warmth.

Lightweight
March 03, 2011

Patagonia rejected this review on their site! It's a good jacket, fits a little large. I'm 6' 190lbs and it fits a little bulky around the stomach area; basically it's not a fitted jacket. Patagonia went cheap on the zippers. The material from the pockets and the front constantly get snagged in the zipper. They should have added some heavy material behind the zippers to keep them from snagging as this can be super annoying. Overall I do like the jacket as it is very compressible and lightweight but surprisingly warm. I also own the nano puff vest.

Pros: lightweight, compressible, warm for size, Cons: zippers snag

I moved to Kazakhstan last Fall and have been wearing the Nano Puff with a Gortex shell. It is perfect for outdoor activities down to about 32F. The construction and fit are exactly as expected.

Wear it all the time
November 28, 2012

I've had this jacket for about a year now and I wear it constantly. I live in the high desert so I always bring this jacket with me for our cool spring, summer and fall nights. It's not as warm as jackets like the Micro Puff, so it doesn't always make the best outer layer on cold winter nights. However, its light weight and packability make it a good insulating layer when its really cold. This jacket's not quite as durable as some of the other Patagonia gear that I've had. The grid stitching on the outer fabric is sewn through the outer fabric and a thin middle layer, not the inside fabric. The thin middle layer sometimes tears and the stitching comes out in spots, affecting the appearance of the jacket Does that affect the jacket's function? Not at all. I'd buy it again for its versatility alone.

A workhorse of a jacket
December 09, 2012

I was given one of these jackets last year and it has proved itself time and time again. Although I got it in one of those strange Patagonia colors (mustard?), I am constantly getting asked about it. Primarily used as a climbing jacket, this thing has been put to the test, battling the sharp crystals of Joshua Tree granite to keeping my core warm on multipitch climbs in the cold elevations of Tuolumne. This jacket has stood up to all of this and the only signs of wear are around the cuffs! Seems like Patagonia could make them out of a little tougher material to ensure durability for climbers. Overall, this jacket will outlast any down jacket, while still keeping you warm. RECOMMENDED!!

Pros: Great design, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: cuffs wear out fast
