Sometimes shiver-proof protection comes in small packages—like our Nano Puff® Vest. It punches above its weight, trapping your heat with PrimaLoft® Gold insulation (60-g), wrapped in a windproof and moisture-shedding 100% recycled polyester ripstop shell with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. The vest has a shaped fit and a soft, wicking interior storm flap and zipper garage for chin comfort. Other fine points include a drawcord hem, two zippered handwarmer pockets and an internal chest pocket (with clip-in loop) that doubles as a stuffsack.
  • Lightweight ripstop recycled polyester shell fabric has a DWR (durable water repellent) finish
  • The most thermally efficient synthetic insulation available; water-repellent, compressible 60-g PrimaLoft® Gold insulation has excellent warmth-to-weight ratio and maintains 96% of warmth, even when wet
  • Brick quilting pattern with narrow horizontal quilt lines on side panels stabilizes insulation and uses durable thread for abrasion resistance
  • Center-front zipper has wicking interior storm flap and zipper garage at chin for next-to-skin comfort
  • Two zippered handwarmer pockets have cleanly finished zipper garages; zippered internal chest pocket doubles as a stuffsack with a reinforced carabiner clip-in loop
  • Drawcord-adjustable drop-tail hem seals in warmth
  • Shell and lining: 1.4-oz 22-denier 100% recycled polyester with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. Insulation: 60-g PrimaLoft® Gold 100% polyester
  • 184 g (6.5 oz)
  • Made in Vietnam.

Water Resistant

 (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.


We use PrimaLoft® insulation inside insulated garments for its warmth, compressibility, and soft comfort. While the human body uses energy to stay warm, PrimaLoft insulation uses a patented microfiber structure to help the body retain warmth and conserve energy.

The proprietary ultra-fine fibers of PrimaLoft insulation form a tight collection of air pockets that trap heat from your body and keep the cold out, providing an excellent warmth-to-weight ratio. When insulation gets wet, it loses these air pockets and consequently, its insulating properties. PrimaLoft ultra-fine fibers were developed to be water resistant so your insulation stays drier and maintains its insulating properties even when wet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lightweight vest My family has been wearing Patagonia for the past 10 years and have been extremely satisfied with the products. They last for a forever with proper care and we are able to pass the kids jackets down to friends and family. I purchased this vest after wanting it for a long time. It is lighter weight than I expected but it will be perfect for cooler summer days in Seattle as well as a midlayer for skiing. The fit of the vest is perfect for me. If I had it custom made, this is how I would want it to fit and look. I ordered black in size small (5"10, 138 lbs, 32C) with a long torso so things are usually cut too short for me. This vest is a long enough with enough room to layer. Great purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for cool weather hiking I love this vest. Great fabric, weight and color ( the new "birds egg blue"). Wished it had a hidden inside pocket for valuables. Seems to run just a little big through the waist area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go everywhere vest! I purchased the Nano Puff vest on sale, and there was only one color in my size, XL. It wasn't my favorite color, but it's grown on me because the turquoise color (ultramarine) is bright and cheerful. The vest is so lightweight that I don't know I'm wearing it, but it protects me from wind and cold. I've worn it to keep warm in a chilly house, on walks in my neighborhood, on walks along ocean cliffs with cold fog and wind, and I've worn it under my jean jacket for extra warmth. I plan to take it with me on a vacation because it is nearly weightless. I really appreciate the zippered hand pockets and the zippered pocket inside to secure small items. The inside zippered chest pocket (which doubles as a stuff sack for the vest) fits an iPhone 6. I love this vest so much that I'm considering getting the Nano Puff jacket, too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from too straight for curvy hips I've been wanting one of these for years. I'm 5'4", 130 lbs, and have a not-so-curvy chest and curvy hips. I want to use this vest for all sorts of outdoor activities. I ordered the Medium so it wouldn't feel too tight going over ski pants. Problem is that it's way too roomy at the chest and poofs out when it's zipped up. It doesn't feel that weird if it's under a jacket, but it's noticeable on its own. I tried on the Small at a store and the bottom hem line seemed to work over my jeans, but it will probably get hung up on bulkier pants. I love the length and I think it's a good product, so I might still get the Small and deal with the bunching. But the Medium is going back. I wish Patagonia made things for more curvy and athletic bodies!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All the activities This vest is good for everything. I got mine on Wednesday of last week...and I've literally worn it every day since. I have run errands in it, skied in it, tomorrow I will tour in it. It's so comfortable and fabulous. It's been warm here so a jacket isn't necessary but a vest is perfect! I'm 5'10" and 155lbs and ordered a medium-it fits perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great layer Love having this layer as an option for alpine skiing. Also wear it a lot over a base layer with jeans. Super comfortable. I have a Medium but I will order a Small next time. 5'9" 130 lbs with boyish figure so I can get away with the slimmer fit. Very cozy to wear.
