Super comfortable

This is my second purchase of this amazingly convenient jacket. Light layer with good warmth, easy packable ability to keep in a pack when not wearing it, and Ive even used as a pillow for naps/sleeping when taking camping. Highly recommend for comfortable light jacket without all the bulk.

Versatile and Warm

I wear this hiking, running, and to the grocery store. It is so warm and lightweight. It kept me warm, even when wet, while hiking along the coastline in Maine. Love it! Sadly, my first one was stolen so I bought another. Love it

Perfect cool weather jacket

I bought this jacket to go to Alaska in mid August and it was absolutely perfect. Packs down super small and super lightweight. I wore this coat everyday in 40-50 degree weather as we traveled from 100+ degree weather. I was able to layer underneath with a lightweight wool shirt, flannel and if needed a medium weight merino wool hoodie. The jacket ...

Incredible Weight to Warmth Ratio

I love this jacket! I was skeptical that it would really be as warm as the product description and other reviewers claimed it was, but the Micro Puff performs as advertised. It's amazingly warm given its weight. This quickly became my preferred jacket for backpacking and hiking since it weighs so little and packs down well. It's especiall... Read Morey warm under a windbreaker or rain jacket. I love the hood and the high neck. Even for someone with long limbs and a long torso, the jacket seems a bit long on me, but I don't mind, and the extra room makes it easy to layer other clothes under the jacket.

Light and warm

This is the second micro puff Ive purchased. I love how lightweight, packable, and warm it is!

July 25, 2021

Best Jackets

I have two of these jackets and 3 Nano Puffs and they are the best jackets. Fits perfect, light weight and fits in my purse. These jackets are all I wear!

Light and Warm!

This is a great jacket for summer backpacking when down is too warm but it still gets chilly at night. It packs down into itself so tiny! My only complaint is that the material is very thin and it can easily get snagged on something. I guess thats a risk you take when going the UL route, cant have the best of both worlds. Other than that its an all... Read More around amazing jacket!!!

Cozy- Looking forward to cooler weather to wear.

Really light and cozy. Bought for a up coming trip once Covid lifts. Bought the navy to add some color. Happy with the purchase. Fits long. Bought the large to layer more. Room to spare. Great with the hood.

July 3, 2021

Super comfortable

This is my go to jacket for warmth on chilly summer evenings as well as freezing cold days with layers. It is light weight and packs up small so easy to carry when traveling or hiking. I dont feel any coat weight or restriction when wearing. Very breathable so it is not too hot to wear in stores. Overall my favorite jacket!

June 29, 2021

Not my shape

I have an athletic build and this just didn't fit. The sleeves were both too small around and too long. The chest and waist were basically true to size but not in proportion with the sleeves. Would be tight all around with a sweater underneath.

Thanks for the feeedback on the fit. Based on you review we think you might like the styling of the [Women's Nano-Air® Hoody](

You name it! It's Just RIGHT!!

Perfect in any activity and lightweight, travel ready! Just an awesome piece. Bought two!

Lightweight and warm, but delicate

I wanted to get a puffy jacket that was extremely lightweight and packable yet still warm. I couldn't be happier with the Micro Puff- I can wear it alone but I like that I can still layer it because it is thin. The durability may be questionable, but I typically layer with a rain shell if I'm worried about the material. I'm a fan of ... Read Morethe hood in particular, and glad I went with this version. I would highly recommend this jacket if you are looking for something that will performs well on its own, but can be layered if needed. This jacket is somewhat long, although I prefer this. I am 5'7", about 130 lb, and the medium may be longer on someone with a shorter torso.

June 4, 2021

So Versatile!

Love my Micro Puff Hoody. It has been my favorite "go-to" jacket. Warm for its weight yet so light to wear on warm days. Lightweight and packable. Would recommend it to anyone.

May 21, 2021

Warm and Cozy

This jacket is so warm and comfortable. I love the hood too!

May 15, 2021

Great jacket

This is a great very light weight jacket to use for cool mornings. Haven't used it in the real cold though. I do find it to be on the large side- I'm 5'3" and around 130lbs- so I usually fit into a medium, but it was too big. I exchanged it for a small and it fits great.

May 8, 2021

Super Warm!

Warm and snug (and very packable) jacket. I have a down sweater and a nano puff, but this is my spring morning go to. It's super portable and light and just warm enough!

May 3, 2021


love this jacket. light as a feather but so perfect for spring cool weather in maine. in 50s, even 40s, it was perfect. the small fits a 115 pound woman well. trim but with enough room for a light weight fleece beneath if needed.

May 3, 2021

Super light and warm

I love these light weight jackets. They are great to pack on a trip when you don't know exactly kind of weather you might deal with as they keep you warm but are easy to pack. They fit great too!

Lightest/warmest jacket in the world.

Great jacket. Super lightweight but warm. I usually wear a vest underneath so I don't need more than that for most of what Colorado weather throws at me. More of a straight cut jacket to the hips.

Maybe too light?

Such an incredible, thin, light layer. Works great under my raincoat! My only concern is that the fabric is too thin and weak - mine already has a few small holes and I have not used it enough for that to be happening. I want to love this jacket so badly - it is perfect other than the durability.

Response from Patagonia
April 26, 2021

Hi Zoe, thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really happy to hear that you've been enjoying the jacket and its worked as a layer under your raincoat. With that said, we're sorry that its developed some holes. We'd suggest using some tenacious tape to patch up the small holes so that the insulation doesn't start escaping from the jacket. Also, for bigger holes you can send the jacket to us for [repair]( Lastly, your satisfaction is always guaranteed so if you don't feel the jacket is holding up to your expectations you're welcome to [return](

Surprisingly warm

I am pleasantly surprised at how warm this coat is given its thin and lightweight design. I live in a pretty windy area and have not once had an issue with the wind penetrating through this coat. Also, the pockets are nice and deep, so I'm not constantly worrying about my things falling out of them. I am loving it so far!

Light and WARM

So lightweight it feels like you arent wearing a jacket, yet so warm at the same time!! I live in Colorado and spend 365 days a year outdoors, this jacket works well in a range of temps; fitted enough to work as a mid layer when its below 0 or on its own well below freezing.

The fit was great but didnt like the way the hood wouldnt flatten out at all. It was like having a basketball behind my neck.

Very warm, great fit

Love everything about this jacket! The color, warmth but not bulky, and pack ability and hood.

super flexible

Love this jacket for all kinds of weather by itself or layered with a heavier jacket if needed. Packs nicely and is very light weight. I love that it covers my bum for cold walks with the pup!

Best weight to warmth ratio I've ever had

This jacket is super lightweight, but don't let that fool you!!! The warmth, and wind blocking ability is beyond amazing. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars: for my petite frame the arms are long and somehow the bottom of the jacket tries to ride up. I think it is supposed to sit closer to the waist, but for me it ends up being ha... Read Morelfway down my hips which makes it kinda tight at the bottom. If they had a petite small I'd exchange it (bought a xs) so i could fit a sweatshirt under it. But since that is not an option I'll gladly keep this very awesome coat even it it means that I have to take off my hoodie to wear it!!!

March 10, 2021

Lightweight and toasty!

Initially I ordered a Medium. It is hard to figure out sometimes because I am in between sizes (S/M). Received the jacket and I liked it but the sleeves were super long and the overall fit was a bit too loose. Called Customer Service and in a couple of minutes a size Small was sent to me. The return was super simple and the size Small, which I rece... Read Moreived a couple days later, fits perfectly. Ok, fit. Jacket fits great on its own or with a sweatshirt or light sweater underneath. Purchased with the hood that fits well just in case there are some rain drops or gusts of wind when checking out the surf. Also, a fantastic travel jacket as it is super light and compact. Good on you Patagonia for another useful product that I will use for a longtime. (FYI-I my first synchilla jacket from the 80s is in great condition and I still use it). Saludos

Comfy and lightweight

Ill preface this with the fact that I HATE coats. Im the weird person who is always cold and hates the cold but also hates tons of clothing.

Great product and service

Thank you

Thin jacket not a winter coat

I originally order this because I thought it was a puffy winter coat. I was disappointed that it was a thin jacket. I ended up returning this item.

March 7, 2021

Good buy!

Perfect for California weather!

March 7, 2021

Love the look

This can ball up small, easy to throw in my purse or bag. Its thin but surprisingly warm and cozy. Good for a cold day, not freezing, but cold :)

March 7, 2021

Super warm and I love it

At first I was worried about its light jacket, will be cold in Lake Tahoe. But! Its super warm. I purchased S and XS. End up keep XS. Cant really fit sweat shirt inside. But enough for California. Customer service was super kind and awesome too. Will purchase another one for my husband.

Very literally, & warm.

Light Weight Jacket

For a light weight travel jacket, it's ok. But I don't think the appearance compares well to the other Patagonia products I own or have purchased. I may feel differently after a few more times of wearing it.

March 7, 2021

Perfect fit.

I love everything about this jacket! It fits perfectly. It is the perfect length, and it is super comfortable. The color is very pretty and it gives me just the right amount of warmth. I'm very happy with my purchase!

March 6, 2021

Perfect.for a wide range of Temperatures

I operate a goat dairy in the mountains of NC. I am up early every morning to milk and feed the goats. My micro puff hood is the perfect jacket for my morning chores. Keeps me comfortable in a wide range of temps.

Great jacket

Keeps me warm during my night runs and afternoon walks. Pretty much take it everywhere I go. I am short and have a large front area that is hard to zip with with smaller sizes.

Not my ideal fabric

I was trying to replace a black Patagonia hoody that I had lost and the fabric on this on wasn't as comfortable, nor the fit. I'm going to keep looking.

We're sorry to hear that this hoody was a disappointment, Melissa! Please reach out to our Customer Service team for [help]( to return it. They'll also be happy to discuss which product might be a better replacement for your previous jacket in terms of fabric, features, fit and warmth.

Warm but runs very small in the arms

Let me start by saying I have just about every variety of patagonia puff jacket, I love and abuse them all. I have an athletic, climber build and am a Med in every other patagonia jacket.

Light coat & still very warm

I bought this as a lighter coat to wear when hiking & it keeps me warm while not making me too hot during activity. I'm 5'2" and 145lbs and the Medium fits perfectly.

March 2, 2021

Less warm than anticipated

I purchased this jacket to replace my 10 year old Nano Puff. I was looking for a lightweight, insulated jacket for walking dogs, hiking and wearing around town. I read that this jacket is even lighter and warmer than the Nano, but I feel like the Nano is better insulated. I wore this jacket for a few hours in wet, mid-30s temps and was quite cold d...

March 1, 2021

Great Fit

I had a Nanno Puff jacket and needed to replace it. Spoke to your representative and they suggested I try this one. I usually dislike hoods. I play paddle all winter love the jacket and the hood is not in the way. Fits well with two layers underneath. Light but warm....Great addition.

Warm and Waterproof

The Micro Puff serves as a solid 3-season jacket for the chilly, wet Pacific Northwest weather. I found it to be pretty warm (with two base layers) and definitely water repellent. I have yet to experience overheating in it, but I generally run pretty cold. However, it wouldnt be nearly warm enough (for me) in weather below 30 degrees Fahrenheit. T... Read Morehe one Micro Puff feature I am not crazy about is the unnaturally high pockets, but its not a big deal. It just feels like I am putting a strain on the pocket zippers when I have my hands in the pockets. Overall though, it is a fine jacket, and I would recommend it.

February 27, 2021

Very warm and light weight.

I just received it today. It is 41degrees and raining and light wind. The jacket cut the wind, resisted the rain and kept me warm. I am very pleased.

February 27, 2021

Love this jacket!

I love this jacket. It's such a nice top layer and/or layering piece. It's a great weight and the arms are long enough for me which I many times have trouble finding. I also love Patagonia's dedication to the environment!

Warm and light!

February 26, 2021

Warm and very thin

Much less puffiness than I was expecting. I know thats the point, but I was still so surprised! It keeps the heat in and a medium is great for layering or wearing alone. Ive been wearing it in the Tennessee mountain winter and just layering it over my better sweater if its on the colder side. If Im being active it definitely traps the heat.

Large size for small stature

This is a nice coat but would be much better if there were sizes for small stature women. The arms are too long as well as the length.

I live in Florida and this is perfect for the coldest days here! Ill surely be bringing it to me when I move to Nashville!

Nice warmth to weight ratio, fit in shoulders is off

I just got this jacket in the trash bag black color and mostly like it... I'm almost 5'9" so I like the length, much better length than my older ultralight down hoody jacket. I went for XL because some of the reviews mention it being tight in the shoulders and I found that to be the case too. Like strangely tight compared to the body... Read More of the jacket which is actually too loose for me. The upper arms are pretty tight too. There is no way I could rock or ice climb with this on but I usually use my nano air for that anyway. I'm keeping it because I wanted a black jacket and it'll work great under my ski jacket or hiking and just casual wear. Range of motion in shoulders is limited so nothing using the upper body for me. If you don't have broad shoulders then you may not have this problem!

Proportions were off

I wanted to love this coat, I did, but the proportions were just OFF. The seam line at the shoulder is very non-traditional, and the shoulders bunched up (like shoulder pads).

This coat is light, sheds Oregon spitting-rain well, and packs small. The arms and length are longer than similar jackets but I kind of like that.

Hoody is lightweight and warm

Warm, lightweight, easy to pack. Arms 1/2 too long for my arms (although I have long arms and legs for my height) and body of jacket tends to ride up. Smaller size would be tight across my shoulders and chest.

This hoody is perfect for cool weather. Super light yet lots of warmth. If its especially chilly, its easy to layer with a sweatshirt. I love mine!

February 24, 2021

Long for my height

I am just under 5'4" and found the jacket long in the sleeves. I have to roll my sleeves up. I probably should have ordered a large instead. It also falls above my thighs which is pretty long for me. Aside from that, it's a great jacket.

It fits so great and it looks good to!

I have a few of the nano hoodies. This micro puff hoody is a little warmer and more stylish.

I wrote one review of the Micro Puff earlier, but I hadn't yet tested it snowshoeing, hiking and running in 30-degree weather.

I do sometimes layer this with a couple long sleeve wool shirts, maybe a vest, in the snow to stay warm when I am stationary for longer periods, but I continue to be amazed at how warm I stay -- even as someone who is always cold -- despite the feather-weight of the jacket. As a running jacket in the snow, it has been a little trickier b/c it does hold in so much heat and sweat that I get hot, but because it's so light to tie around my waist I do this as security in case I get too far from home and get cold. And, given the versatility and packability, it will come with me on every backpacking trip from now on.

Snug around the bottom

I love this jacket except that the elastic trim that is around the sleeves and hood (a plus) is also around the bottom of the jacket (not a plus). I dont like the snug feeling as I ski and walk around my hips; is sometimes creeps up.

Great Overall Piece

I was looking for a jacket I can wear for all occasions, hiking, xc skiing, running to the store, walking the dog. Its not warm enough to wear alone on cold CO nights, but i find it perfect for daily activities where I'm being active.

Best Jacket Ever

I love walking/hiking in the winter, but don't love being weighed down with a hefty jacket. This is the warmest/ lightest jacket I have ever owned. I am absolutely obsessed with it.

Very warm, I really love the style. I will LIVE in this!

This coat is fabulous. I recently lost my sister and she always wore her black puffy and NOW she can hug me close when I wear mine and think of her every time I do. Life Is Short! Make the most of it everyone!

Fantastic Jacket

Absolutely fantastic jacket that's cute on and functions like a pieces of high performance gear. Packs down so small and provides a lot of warm.

Great Little Workhorse

I bought this to replace my old size large Nanopuff thats too big for me now. I bought both in a medium to compare fit. The Micro Puff has an overall slimmer fit. Its also a bit longer.

Hello Juliane, we're truly sorry this didn't work out.

Runs large

I was so excited to see this on sale, so I snapped it up immediately. I always wear a small and have tried the x-small but always found it too small. Sadly, that's not the case with this jacket.

Runs long and trim

I have this and the Nano Puff, both in size large. This is lighter and the warmth is comparable between the jackets, but it's the fit that's the thing that ruins this one for me. While the Nano hits at the hip and is cut like a true "regular" fit, the Micro Puff claims it's also a "regular" fit, however I find it ... Read Moreto run very long and cut more in the "trim" or "athletic" fit style. It's markedly trimmer when compared to the Nano and sits a full 3 inches below my hips.

Love the lightweight, however the cut, or perhaps just the claim of a "regular" cut, forces this jacket to the back of my closet.

punctures too easily and does not breath

It is light like advertised, but in normal use, it gets puncture holes in the sleeves. The insulation is coming out of the puncture holes. It also does not breathe. I usually don't have a problem getting sweaty but I do every time I wear this skiing. So I've demoted it to around town use and taken it out of my backcountry ski pack.

Response from Patagonia
April 14, 2020

We are so sorry to hear about the punctures in that jacket. Similar to down products, our Micro Puff insulation can sometimes come through the stitching and stitch holes. To fix it yourself in instances where it is small fibers, you can break them off. If it is a larger white clump of insulation, we suggest you try to pull it back into the jacket by pinching it from behind and pulling the fabric forward. You can also cut the larger white clump with scissors, but be extremely careful not to cut the fabric or the stitch. Nonetheless, you if you find your are unsatisfied with that jacket because of this and the breathability, you are more than welcome to [send]( it back to us. Thank you so much for the comments!
