Kinda Large
November 18, 2020

So lightweight & toasty warm

I love this longer version for really cold and windy winter walks ! The zipper can zip up from the bottom if you need more leg freedom during hikes ! Also can be used for under your sleeping bag while camping or instead of a sleeping bag !!!! Its the best coat Ive ever had ! Ready for it in desert khaki or army green !!!!

Soft, compact and warm

I love wearing it. Keeps me toast without too much bulk.

light weight

I love this jacket. It covers me down to my knees.

October 28, 2020

Light as a feather!

This has become my go-to coat for standing outside at my kids sports games. Its very lightweight and layerable both under and over, and the length provides great protection from the wind. Love the versatility!

Love... but needs a hood

Love everything about this jacket- its fit, its lightweight feel and ability to layer for colder days and keep me super warm. BUT I need a hood!!!!! I So wish this parka was available with a hood then it would be a perfect 5 stars.

She loved it!

Had a trip to Maine coming up and my wife needed a jacket. Started scoping out the web and fell in love with the style of the jacket. It was perfect for our trip.

Love this coat. Looks chic, but basically a lightweight synthetic blanket. Warm but not too warm. Purchased in ~February. F ind myself putting it on for everything. Light but feels very durable. Can see using this for years & years. Presentable enough for air travel (yikes in 2020 but unavoidable for some) - functional & light enough to ta... Read Moreke to a hike-in cabin. Wanted/needed synthetic due to rainy climate. Fit: I'm short with broad shoulders & stocky/muscular build (i.e. short but not a petite frame). Small is perfect for me, easy fit. Got the discontinued lava color, may purchase another color because of how much I like and wear this coat. I do try to consider my privilege, environmental impact, etc when I buy things. I try to get good use out of purchases & rehome items if they haven't been used till they fall apart. I support small local outdoor retailers (even more so now) when I can, and I also buy direct from Patagonia. I recently used Patagonia's repair service on an older different item & it was great!!

Loving it!

I ordered W's Nano Puff and W's Radalie Parka. Nano Puff is light, thin, and more of a relax fit, it fits me perfectly. Love the length being longer than the Radalie Parka. The fit is more standard and that is what I love it even though is more than the Radalie. The material and design are very well made and every stitch was perfect. I ju...

So glad to finally have a puffer that is long for those outdoor moments like camping where I need something longer. Whoooo!

If you need a longer lightweight coat this is it!!

I have purchased the black in this coat years ago and finally decided to buy the navy. It looks so sheek with bluejeans.

June 17, 2020


I'd been eyeing this coat for a couole of months and very glad I finally purchased it. The lava red is absolutely stunning and the brick pattern is very stylish. I disliked the short nano coat I bought bc it didn't fit quite right in the shoulders so I got a size larger than for this longer coat. Fits amazing in the shoulders now. Don&#x2...

The longer length means I can take the dog out in just the leggings I wear around the house without freezing. Great coat for just walking around.

June 13, 2020

Way too large

I'm 5'1 and 100 lbs and this coat was huge on me. The sleeves were too long, the coat went down past my knees, and it was huge around the middle. It's a gorgeous coat and very warm, but I have to return it because of the fit, and there's no smaller size available.

June 8, 2020

Plenty warm

Really happy with this coat. Its perfect for cool weather in California early in the morning and at night in the 50s. Light weight but keeps you warm even when its windy.

April 23, 2020

Great idea, bad fit

I love love my regular nano puff and was so excited when they released the parka! However, the fit is terrible. It is too large in my belly area and torso and puffs out very unattractively when zipped up. The shoulders are too tight, yet it would be huge on me if I sized up. The fit ends up being unflattering, you can even see it in the pictures on... Read More this site. Please improve the fit to make it more flattering. I ended up getting a parka length light coat from a competitor brand even though I prefer the nano puff material.

Coats and jackets

I ordered this coat in November and I Love it ! I have gotten many compliments on it .The Women mostly say they like it because it goes in in the waist area .

Terrible fit

Patagonia, I love the short version of the Nano Puff, but you have to change the fit of the parka. The sleeves are long, yet this coat is very tight throughout the torso.

Light and Warm

This Jacket is so lightweight yet amazingly warm. I bought it to layer under some fall coats that are not warm enough to wear alone in the coldest months and it works perfectly! It's thin so it doesn't feel bulky under another coat, but it still blocks the wind and retain heat. I fold the collar inward when I layer my town coat over it. I...

I clipped off the loose ends and it hasn't frayed further, but with the price, I expect the stitches to be secure, if not perfect.

Knee length, warm, lightweight coat

I love my new Patagonia coat except for one major flaw -- it does not have a hood. I haven't bought a coat in eons without a hood. However, if it did have a hood, it would be ugly, as per my daughter's jacket, so maybe no hood is better. I wanted a WARM, LIGHTWEIGHT coat and Patagonia came highly recommended by my daughter. I detest win... Read Moreter and I detest bulky clothing so this coat will be wonderful during dreary, cold winters. It will be easy to pack when we travel. I normally wear L but I ordered an XL so I would have extra room for wearing sweaters, etc. Wearing a sweater for the extra bulk, I tried on coats at the local Patagonia outlet and REI so I knew how the L and XL would fit. The L would have been fine, but along with hating winter and bulky clothes, I also do not like feeling confined in snug-fitting coats. I've only worn this coat a few times, but I think it is going to be almost perfect. A nice hood would make it perfect.

Lightweight and warm

My granddaughter loves her new coat. It is long enough to cover her legs to her knees and that is a huge benefit now that it is bitter cold here.

December 28, 2019

Awesome coat!

This coat is lightweight winter warmth! Great mid-thigh length and cut perfectly: enough room for a warm layer underneath, without sacrificing its flattering lines or losing one's ability to indulge in holiday cookies. Though much thinner and lighter than the 850 down coat it is replacing, it offers just as much warmth (I suspect that it will ... Read Morebe too light once temps dip into the 20s, but it's been fine in the 30s and I'm a freeze-baby). The zipper opens from the bottom or top - so it is a bit finicky to start; what double-direction zipper isn't finicky though.... I opted for the orange color - it is a warm, cinnamon brown with a slight metallic sheen that is gorgeous.

Outstanding craftsmanship!

I originally bought a size up and had to exchange for 1 size down. I recommend measuring yourself to get an accurate size when ordering. However; the process of exchanging was seamless. I was thoroughly impressed with the efficiency and kindness of the associate that assisted with the exchange. I am now wearing the correct size and loving it! I wi... Read Moresh it had a hood and that could be zipped up when not used, But this minor flaw is totally not a deal breaker.

Very nice looking and. I love the gray. It is slightly tight but I don’t like things too big.. It fits a lot different than the jacket I have had for 19 years.

I've been wanting and needing a parka for a long time but not one made of down or one that's overly puffy. The Nano Puff Parka fits this bill perfectly.

It's for my wife she returned and exchanged to fiona, she loved the color, lightweight and looks, the reason she exchanged because it's not warm at all for her especially when cold day u put your arm in the sleeves it's like going thru a freezer.

Great parka for travel

The Nano Puff Parka is perfect for travel. It’s light and very packable. Most of the time I only need a light sweater to stay warm even in colder climates. The parka is fitted and I love the fact that I don’t look like a big puffed marshmallow wearing it. The only negative about the Nano Puff fabric is that it is not very breathable.

December 13, 2019

Practically perfect in every way

My daughter gave me this for early Christmas gift. It is the perfect lightweight coat. I used it traveling and brought a scarf along and it was perfect.

If i wanted to wear thick layers under I would get large. My back and shoulders are kind of big which is why it is snug. I only wish that the wrists were a bit roomier. It is a little bit hard to get my big hands in and out. I am super stoked on this jacket.

Carol, we're sorry to hear this parka was disappointing for you, but we really appreciate the feedback. We'll be happy to [help]( you [return]( it to a Patagonia-owned store or to our main service center for merchandise credit or a refund, so don't hesitate to reach out to us. The Nano Puff series was designed to have a high warmth-to-weight ratio that packs down quite small. It sounds like you're looking for an insulated, longer parka with more substantial fabric and insulation so we encourage you to contact us for recommendations.

Can’t have enough Nano!!

I have three nano puff vests and they are a winter staples. I love the light weight of the coat that comes with sufficient warmth for winter.

Great Parka, perfect fit, wrong one for me

This parka looked great and fit great. It was light and thin not bulky. However I needed a warmer parka for winter so I returned it and will reorder a new one fit for colder weather on its own.

Can’t quite get the right fit...

I love everything about the Nano Puff Parka- the warmth, the versatility, how lightweight it is etc.. But it is too tight in the shoulders for comfort and movement.
