Super warm, puffy, different than other puff products
I owned a nano puff hoody. I want a thicker jacket for the deep winter days in the northeast. This jacket is definitely toasty. The style is not your slim, fitted style. It is a lot more puffy than the typical nano or micro puff so be clear on this particular style before you purchase.
The sleeves and shoulders were too small in a Medium (62.5 170lbs) but the torso was PLENTY big enough. I tried a Large and it was massive - I could easily fit 2 of me in it. I returned it at once. Hopefully they can dial in the fit with next seasons run. The 2019 MacroPuff is far beyond regular fit.
Best Patagonia winter coat I own
The macro puff hoody is true to size yet would have room if you need a mid layer. It is incredibly warm for its smaller size, has a tapered, longer look. It has twice the warmth of the Nano puff so it solves wearing two coats on a cold day. However, because the fabric allows air circulation, you can wear this on days in the 40s. Walked the dog in 1... Read More5 degrees and was warm with one coat. The jacket is a little longer, the drawstring is well done both in the pocket or on the interior, and this is a well made coat. I own the better sweater in XL, the Nano in XXL, and this is the best fitting and best looking in an XL. The sleeves are warm due to extra insulation. I tried a micro puff but it was an awkward fit as either too small in the XL or too big in XX L plus it was a shiny material. The macro puff is a more Matte fabric. The hood on the macro lays nicely and looks good unlike the way the nano puff hoody looks which was why I chose the nano without the hood. I think Patagonia nailed this design in styling, fit, size, breathable fabric, and overall warmth. This is my favorite Patagonia and would highly recommend it.
I owned the Micro-Puff which was great and used it often in the winter hiking in Austria. I was completely satisfied. However... they have somehow out done themselves! The quality of this jacket is amazing, micro felt a little fragil, like I had to be on the look out for sharp edges. But this seems more rugged and has great wind protection. Highly ...

Lightweight, versatile, and warm
I wanted a jacket to replace a Patagonia Guide Parka that I had been wearing since 2006. I already have a Down Sweater and Nanopuff hoody, so I was looking for something warmer. I was also looking at the Fitz Roy Down Parka. I could not find any retailers in the area who carried the Macro Puff, so I was relying on reviews and information from Patag... Read Moreonia. I finally decided to try the Macro Puff and put it on my Christmas List. My wife forgot to order it, so I didn't actually receive it until mid January. When I took it out of the box, I was really disappointed at first. It didn't seem like it would be any warmer than my existing jackets and so I thought I had spent a lot of money to duplicate what I already had. I did like the appearance and the fit, however, so I thought I would try it for a few days before sending it back. I live in the Midwest and go out for daily walks with my Golden Retriever. So having a warm coat that could block the wind and do the job for 60 minutes walking outside was my top priority. Giving that this coat was going to be worn for more vigorous activity and in wetter conditions, another important consideration was getting a synthetic coat as opposed to a down parka. I have now worn the Macro Puff jacket for over 20 walks in varying conditions, and I like it better and better every time I wear it. The jacket is amazingly lightweight--it's hard to believe when you put it on that it will keep you warm. But it does. The cut fits me very well; I like the extra length. I really like the lack of bulk. Unlike my previous coat, the zipper works flawlessly and is easy to use. The design of the front zipper and hood provides wind protection for the neck, something that might be the most enjoyable feature of all. How does it work in the cold: Before, I would wear my Nano puff hoody until the temperature went below 35-40 degrees (depending on wind). With the Macro Puff, I can go down to mid-20s wearing only a polo shirt underneath and still be warm. In fact, anything more and I overheat while walking. Two days ago, we went out on a 13 degree day with light wind. I did add a 1/4 zip long-sleeve base layer and a nano puff vest--and was perfectly warm the entire time. So the Macro Puff hoody has become my go-to coat. I still wear the down sweater for more public occasions because I think it looks really nice and it is even more lightweight. The Nano Puff Hoody is now relegated to more backyard work and something to throw on on a slightly chilly day. On the few sub-zero days, I'll just go back to the old Guide Parka. But. overall, I think the Macro Puff jackets may be the best coats Patagonia has ever made. The only improvement I would suggest would be a waist cinch because it can get a little drafty. And the only slight criticism is that the adjustment toggles for the hem and the hood are not user-friendly and difficult to use, especially if wearing gloves.
Great Jacket, Design a bit misplaced
Looking at many of the reviews, people are being ridiculous. The fit is looser and longer? Yeah of course, it's a parka design meant to fit over other layers. Big hood? Fits over a helmet and likely a couple of over hoods. Heavy 2 way zipper? So it won't interfere with a harness. As a stand alone over a baselayer the jacket is about rig... Read Moreht for skiing in 5-20 degrees. For actual mountaineering/alpine climbing I would only use as a belay type parka (4th layer) unless it was <0 temps. I've also used as a throw over layer when backcountry skiing on the way down - just stay out of the trees! Excellent casual wear jacket, soft and comfy, but you'll want a shell if it's actually raining or snowing heavily. My main issue with the jacket is that it seems like it's trying to serve two masters. The light weight and 10D face fabric suggest mid-layer, while the rest of the design and fill volume suggest parka - but the light and low weather resistant face fabric reduces its capabilities as a belay-type parka. I would suggest that Patagonia either move to a heavier 15-20D fabric (although it would then likely be too similar to the upcoming 2020 DAS parka) or move to something more similar to what is on the nano air range. I would also flair out the bottom hem 1-2". Where are the macropuff zip-on pants for cold weather mountaineering?
You could stand naked on Hoth, wearing only this jacket, and be toasty! Its big, baggy, comfy, layers perfectly. I'm in the snow three or more days a week, for 8 hours at a stretch, at 10,500 feet. I wear an R2, the Macro Hoody and a shell, and I'm all good. I also sweat complete through the Macro many times and it dries out super fast. ... Read More Bravo Patagonia, well done!
I agree overall the fit seems a little large. I have a down sweater jacket also which is a medium and fits perfect. This seemed large at first. Once I washed and dried it, it did seem to fit better.

It's not warm as advertised.
With advertisement of 'wamrth and warmer' etc, I decided to purchase this jacket to wear in NYC. However, it's not warm at around 32 degree which contradicts to the ad. And it's not wind proof. It is chilly when cold wind blows. And wind is coming to my arms and back. Not sure if it's defect or exaggerated. I'm confuse... Read Mored that people in reviews said it's warm. Other than this, I like this jacket in general.
This is a great puffy! The design and features are awesome, a full coverage hood, two way front zipper, pockets where I need them (including two internal drop-in pockets), user friendly elastic cuff, warm, light, and fairly low bulk. Patagonia nailed it with this one! Thanks for a great piece!
Not what was expected
The gray color of the Macro Puff Hoody is very dull and not the satin sheen with subtle fabric pattern as my Micro Puff Hoody. I ordered a size medium and found it fit across the shoulders but was very loose in other areas. The sleeves and coat were both too long for me and the amount of insulation was much thinner than expected (by comparison with...

Probably the best cold weather jacket Patagonia makes.
Probably the best cold weather ever made. It's incredibly light, yet keeps me warm below freezing if I'm moving. Standing still, layering is still recommended. It runs a bit larger than the Micro Puff Hoody(also another greatest hit) but as a cold weather jacket, it's fine because I can layer. The hem is definitely longer than usual ... Read Moreand the body is a bit more roomy. I thought the hood was too big, but I found the hidden drawstring and it fits perfectly when adjusted. The sleeve length is typical medium length from Patagonia sizing. It's windproof as well. But not waterproof, which would be this jacket's only downfall. Aesthetically, it looks great and not super puffy like other similar jackets. Easily wearable anywhere from the trails to the workplace without looking out of place. Well worth it. Better than down.
This coat is prefect for the 10-25 degree weather range and performs well in the windy, cold Montana weather. I love that the hem is long for coverage. I am 5' 2" weighing 118lbs; I'm a bit disproportionate for my height, with a shorter torso and longer inseam, so this coat covers my rear completely (which I prefer) instead of mid-wa...

Disappointed, coat is way too lightweight for the cost. I just returned it for a refund.
Hi Nicole! We're sorry to hear you had to return this. This jacket was actually designed with a minimalist intent, so it is one of our lightest, most packable jackets. If you're looking for a heavier jacket, we'd recommend the [Men's Jackson Glacier Jacket](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-jackson-glacier-down-jacket/27920.html).
Really Solid Jacket
This jacket is a great jacket. It's well manufactured and fairly comfortable. I ended up sending it back because it was larger than expected compared to other similar Patagonia Jackets. This jacket won't disappoint, but probably worth trying out in the store first for sizing.
Great Jacket with Minor Flaws
Excellent jacket for walking around when it's moderately cold but not very cold. Plenty of warmth throughout, and when it gets colder the hood is very warm, fits well, and can be snugged tight so there's no air leakage. I had a tailor tighten the elastic cuffs because the sleeves were too long for me and the cuffs weren't snug enough... Read More to keep the sleeves from dropping over my hands. My only other problem is that the backing for the right side of the front zipper is maybe 2" wide and quite stiff. The problem is that when the jacket is zipped up 3/4 of the way the backing doesn't bend and so the base of the hood keeps rubbing against my chin instead of laying down like it should. Excellent jacket, but rated 4 stars instead of 5 because of the sleeve length/cuff tightness and the uncomfortably stiff zipper backing.
Macro puff too macro
Sizing way to big compared to every Patagonia jacket I own. Sitting in 45 degree, somewhat windy weather, I got super cold. This is not up to Patagonia standards. What happened guys?

Patagonia Marco- Puff Hoody
I bought the Patagonia Macro Puff Hoody and I love it. It is extremely warm and it fits very well. I am 5'11' and the medium size fits very well. It is light weight but there is still a ton of loft to the synthetic down. Overall it was a great purchase, I can't wait to use it in the mountains this winter.
