Patagonia Men's Micro Puff® Jacket

True To Size
June 3, 2021

Warm but poor fit

Quite warm and light, but odd fit of a too small neck to comfortably zip up, and a fit in the mid-section for some one with a very large belly. Am keeping for ultralight backpacking. If Patagonia can improve the fit in future years, I might buy a replacement, as the PlumaFill really works.

Love this lightweight puff!

I LOVE this jacket. It's super lightweight and breathes a lot better than my old nano puff pullover. Great all around piece that will shed some mild precipitation (light rain or snow). Keeps me warm as an outer layer in temps from 30-60 depending on how active I am. I have worn it xc skiing at lower intensity days when it's in the 10-20s ... Read MoreF temp range or on extremely cold days below zero if it's really windy here in WI. So yeah, versatile, great fit, definitely a winner. I reach for this more frequently than my down sweater.

Not warm, fits small

This jacket is very light, yes, but it is not warm. I can't wear it for anything but sunny, non-windy, temps above 50 degrees. The sleeves are tight like a base layer, but this is not a base layer jacket. Also, the fabric is so thin it feels fragile. My dog didn't waste a day before tearing it open. There is no way I could walk in the woo... Read Moreds with this jacket. It would shred.

May 27, 2021

Hi Jeff, we're sorry this jacket wasn't what you expected! This jacket was designed to be our lightest, most packable jacket so durability is not its strong suit unfortunately. When wearing this out in the woods it is best to wear a hard shell over it. We'd recommend the Men's Macro Puff Hoody or the Men's Down Sweater if you're looking for something warmer.

May 19, 2021

Warm, light, packable

The Micro Puff Jacket has great warmth for weight, and packs really small. It's so light and packable that I tend to take it everywhere, notably on long middle-of-nowhere winter gravel and mountain bike rides just in case bad weather hits, I have a wreck, etc. (I wouldn't recommend it as a primary MTB jacket, but it's not designed fo...

Great "Go To" Jacket

This jacket is light and soooo comfortable. Warm, but not too warm. A great three season coat that could easily be a four season option if you live in an area that cools in the evenings! Highly recommend!!

May 8, 2021

Light and Warm

Pretty light, very warm. Usually get an XL, but the L fits great for layering under a shell. 511- 180 lbs

April 27, 2021

Light but a heavyweight

We just experienced a cold snap here in WV and was able to put my new Patagonia coat to the test. The coat being so light I wondered how it would stand up to 20 degree weather. Great!! I wore a T-shirt underneath and was toasty.

April 25, 2021


Definitely light weight and warm, but a little long for someone under 5.10 or so. Fortunately, I can roll the bottom up and tuck in under.

April 20, 2021

Light and warm

You guys need to get your sizing right. Im 5 10 175 medium should fit me but its too tight. Large is way too blousy in the middle. I wear medium rain jacket medium shirts and I have older medium nano jackets that fit perfectly. I love micro puff but I wish you could dial in the fit.

Ultralight Backpacker's Dream!

Exactly what I have been looking for! Perfect combination of warmth and lightweight on a non-down jacket. We backpack the trails of the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee and are section-hiking the AT in 100 mile increments. The warmth equals or exceeds it's down counterparts which is important in an areas with more rain that snow! I purchased on... Read Moree for both me and my son.

Great warmth for a packable coat! Backpack to panniers

April 3, 2021

Favorite Warm Layer

I live in Florida and spend most of my time on or around the water. When the temps drop in the evenings I grab my Micro Puff jacket and am good to go. Warmth and style for both the boat and the restaurant. Jeans, T shirt, flip flops, and a Micro Puff jacket are all you need.

April 2, 2021

Great Jacket

Own multiple Nano Puff jackets and decided to purchased the Micro puff jacket and am amazed at the warmth! Great fit, great look! Love the jacket. One complaint-poor collar design as it sticks up and under the chin unlike the nano puff jacket.

April 1, 2021

Wow - shocked at warmth

I cant believe how warm this jacket is for its weight. The DWR is a nice touch. Been getting a lot of use in 40-degree, light rain/mist spring days in Maine. Im perennially caught between medium and large. 510, 175 and large for me in this jacket is loose fitting, but the medium was too snug. I opted for large so I could have a decent layer under...

Peppergrass green color limitation

The color Peppergrass green is extremely limited. Not sure if it is even offered any longer. Great color for women!!

Light backpacking

Bought for Lightweight backpacking. Good weight to warmth ratio. Ounces advertised came in a bit low. My digital scale added 3 oz. for a xxl. I assume advertised weight is based on a med. I'm not in love with the position of the hand pockets. Probably high for a harness but minor complaint. Overall nice and compactable. Haven't slept in i... Read Moret yet but looks to do fine.

Efficient Warmth and Weight

This jacket is everything I hoped it would be. The warmth to weight ratio is absolutely amazing. Its not as bulky as true down but doesnt sacrifice the warmth. Its packs down really well and is there when a chill hits. I love this jacket!

March 15, 2021


My utils each wearing continue to increase. Money is a mean to, not the cause of happiness.

March 5, 2021

Love these jackets

This is the 3rd one I own, different colors. Great as a stand alone jacket or great when layering...

March 4, 2021

Warm, lightweight, packable a killer trifecta

The portability makes it the perfect jacket for travel in mild climates, to throw in the truck for anytime use, or any other causal need. Paired with a light rain jacket, youd be covered in any condition down into the 40s lower if youre not a warm-blooded tropics dweller!

February 24, 2021

For my Pops

My Dad coveted my husband jacket and borrowed it to try it out. He didn't take it off for a week so I bought this jacket for him. He is always cold and not as limber as he once was. He love the jacket. Plenty of room to get in and out and it feels like he is not wearing anything. Super warm and cozy and looks sharp.

February 18, 2021

Well Insulated in moderate temperature

Maintained good body temperature wearing the coat on a moderate weather hike.

February 15, 2021

Surprisingly Warm for being so light weight.

I was fortunate enough to receive this jacket as a token of appreciation from my company for 10+ years of service. I was worried that an XL might not fit, due to the "COVID 20" I had put on... But it fit fine! While the arms are on the narrow side, I was able to wear a heavy sweatshirt and had no problems. I wore it yesterday, with a t...

This will be my new winter travel jacket, ideal for when I travel in winter from Colorado to warmer climes, as it is very light, and packs down very small - so I can easily stash it in my carry-on when not needed.

February 12, 2021

Warm and extremely light

Tshirt and jacket at 20° and I was fine. This jacket is awesome ... wait for it ... SAUCE!

February 4, 2021

Light and warm even when wet

I use this under a shell and over a base layer and keep warm into the mid teens. Unlike my old down version, this guy stays lofty and warm when wet. Very similar in warmth and weight down garments of the past. Please note that durability is intentionally sacrificed for weight; this thing will snag and rip, so I dont recommend it as outerwear beyond... Read More the Trader Joes parking lot. Style is fine, a little more engineered looking than I like, but whatever. Only one real issue: the neck is cut small, to the point of a possible defect. I have a skinny neck and I can barely zip this thing all the way up.

January 29, 2021

Smaller fit compared to my last jacket

Have had a nano puff (size medium) for many years and decided to finally upgrade. Still fits well; just starting to show its age. Unfortunately the medium in the nano was too tight. Exchanged it for a large and that one was too big. Didnt seem to be a Goldilocks solution unfortunately with this style.

January 29, 2021

Super light and warm

The collar is a bit high under the chin. Fits nicely under Silent Down Jacket for really cold temperatures, ie. single digit and below.

January 29, 2021

Maybe if I spent some time on "The Rack"

I chose this jacket as a cold day midlayer for skiing on the advice of the retail crew. One day out and things are mostly good: feather-light but warm; not bulky at all between a shell and base layer. However, I had to double-check the label afterwards to see if I'd mistakenly bought a Medium Tall as the torso falls well below by hips and the ... Read Morecollar is up to my ears. Not so noticeable in the store while standing and tugging around for fit. The retail tag says "Medium". Since the waist band is elastic but without and adjustible cinch there's no way to loosen it to prevent it from riding up to my navel. So, sure I'm looking good around the base area but like some kind of raspberry troll in the chair and in the car.

January 22, 2021

Great Jacket

I have always been a fan of the Nano Puff equipment. This is a step up in warmth and also fits better and feels warmer than my down sweater. Great outer layer in dry conditions and insulator in wetter or on a cold day on the ski hill. Medium fits great for me at 5'10", 160lbs., lean, not big.

Its good. Its warm.

Excellent, light jacket thats suprisingly warm

I purchased this jacket for walking around in a NYC winter. Its perfect for my needs. Super light, but surprisingly warm.

Packable warmth!

I'll admit it, I'm a big fan of Patagonia's products, and I own a ton of them. I have a bunch of their products, ranging from sweatshirts, t-shirts, & jackets to pants & hats!

Warm and light!

Havent experienced the warmth while wet benefits of the Micro Puff. But warmth while dry is outstanding.

January 8, 2021

Collar Disaster

Loved the look and fit but the height of the collar in front is poorly designed. When zipped up all the way it just stabs you in the throat and under your chin. Its to bad because the design and fit are great but just to uncomfortable when zipped up

February 12, 2021

We appreciate the review on our Micro Puff. We're sorry to hear that the zipper is bothersome. We do put a piece of soft material there to hopefully help with any discomfort but it sounds like it's not doing it's job for you! Please [reach out to us]( so we can discuss your options.

still evaluating

My initial impression was the minimal amount of insulation material when compared to my Patagonia Down Sweater that I love. Thus far I have I have found that it fits well and seem warm in 35 degree windy conditions when covered by a Patagonia Calcite jacket.

So light and so warm

I cant believe how light this thing is. It is very warm and packs down really small. Itll be a crucial piece of my cold weather gear for a while. I have really long arms and torso so I opted for the xxl. The sleeves fit, but its a size too baggy for me in the chest. I wish I could have tried on the xl, but all and all I really like it

January 2, 2021

I wish I'd bought two

The comfort and quality are excellent. I bought one for my son during an amazing sale, and I wish I'd bought one for me too. So nice, and it fits perfectly.

Lightweight and super warm.

I love this jacket, looks good, feels great and so warm. I'd highly recommend this jacket.

December 24, 2020

So incredibly light

I really didn't appreciate the weight of this jacket until I began using it. It warms up faster than the down sweater and is surprisingly comparable in warmth. If you do need some durability, I would recommend using an outer shell. Overall a step up from the nano puff!

December 24, 2020

Great coat wrong size

511 195 Went back and got the XL Fits a little loose but better then too tight So far warm in the Chicago weather

December 18, 2020


Overall this jacket is as advertised. Unfortunately, light weight has been taken to the extreme. The jacket is neither very warm or very strong ( I ripped a decent hole in it within a week. The zipper snagged on the fabric and it ripped with minimal pressure.) I was hoping this jacket would become a new standby to replace my old puffball. With two ...

Earn Some Character - Micro vs Nano

I've had a Nano Puff Jacket for 8 years, love it, has served me well fly fishing, hiking, skiing and kicking around.

Wow, ... the Micro Puff moves great wi... Read Moreth me, feels like I don't have a jacket on and is a bit warmer than my Nano Puff! No way my 8 year old Nano is going to the consignment store, but now it'll share time with the new Micro Puff. I read a review that mentioned the lightweight Micro shell might be a little fragile, no evidence of that so far. I say, get outside, earn some character and dont be afraid of a Worn Wear patch or two. THANKS, Patagonia, for all your fine products!

December 13, 2020

Great Quality

I LOVE PATAGONIA! I actually just got my micro puff delivered a couple days ago so I havent had the chance to use it much. But the times I have worn it, I really like it!

Would be perfect, if not for the neck

I cannot zip this jacket up because the neck jabs you in the bottom of your chin.

February 2, 2021

Hello Grant, we're sorry to hear the fit of the neck is causing you discomfort! Your feedback has been passed along to the appropriate team. We'd like to suggest the [Nano Puff Jacket]( if the jacket silhouette is your greater preference. The only thing is that it will not be as warm as the Micro Puff.

December 11, 2020

Extremely comfortable

This is by far the best jacket that I have ever purchased. It is perfect on a cool to cold day and is both warm and breathable. Fit is perfect and the quilting patterns look great. My plan is to purchase this jacket for many gifts in the future.

December 9, 2020

great layer, super light

This wears really slim and light for the insulation it provides. it feels like it has double the warmth vs how thin it is.

It works well as a underlayer, i am cautious about using it as an exterior layer. When the s...

Warm, light, comfortable

5'10" ~190 lbs. I bought a large in this and am happy with the fit. Plenty of room for a flannel underneath. Sits below waist comfortably. Perfect layer in 20-45'F weather.

I reach for this over my Down sweater jacket and I like this puff better than my old nano, which always seemed to make me overheat. Sheds light precipitation nicely. Great jacket. Would be nice if it had a zip chest pocket.

December 2, 2020

The jacket is super light yet surprisingly warm

I own another jacket from a competitor, but compare to that jacket micro puff jacket wears much more naturally comfortable. The micro puff weighs only half as the other jacket and yet equally warm as well as more breathable. I find myself reaching for the micro puff jacket in the cool mornings and nights to keep me warm.

November 30, 2020

Small, warm, and exactly what you were looking for

This jacket is AWESOME. Not only is it punching above it's weight in terms of how small it is and warm, but it looks great! I've worn it out when I was sure I was going to need another layer, and been perfectly comfortable. The sizing is spot-on, which works great over a fleece or just a t-shirt.

Light weight with long neck line

Great jacket to have for the casual person. Perfect during a recent trip to Cannon Beach. Only a miner issue with the neckline. It ran very high and narrow when fully zipped. the length of the neckline caused it dig into the neck. Maybe I just need to stretch out my neck.

Great piece of equipment

Great jacket. It has become my go to light jacket. I don't like heavy coats, and would rather layer up and this jacket is perfect for that outer layer on dry cold days, and under a raincoat on those wetter ones. Have had for a while and it has really held up to the wear well.

Swiss Army knife of jackets

This jacket quickly became my every day, go-to, take anywhere, and do (almost) anything jacket for most of the cooler months of the year.

It did start having loose fibers after wearing almost daily for several months and taking on trips all over Europe. ... Read MoreWhen I tried to burn off the little fibers with a lighter (bad mistake), the jacket material ignited quickly and it got a burn mark on the sleeve before I could blow out the flame.

June 19, 2020

The jacket is super light jet very warm even in the northeast climate.

June 19, 2020

Good material but poor design

I like the jacket material but the design. It's my personal opinion and I do not like the design, the stitching between the rectangular design makes the overall rectangular boxes too big. If the design was as per the Nano Puff jacket then I would have loved this Micro Puff jacket. I returned the jacket and ordered Nano Puff jacket.

Breathable layering

The Micro Puff Jacket is surprisingly very light and compressible. It will make an excellent insulating layer in the winter and will provide a nice warm layer on cool fall evenings.

Read More outer layer over some thermals and a good sweater, and it will be great while climbing even in a steady rain. I question its durability on sharp rocks and scrapes while summiting a boulder, but for everyday commuting in the fall and winter, I think this coat will be more than adequate.

June 17, 2020

Terrific Jacket

9.2 ounces of pure comfort. I use it for heading to the gym, or running errands, and then throw it in my backpack for layering on cold nights while hiking on weekends! Amazing warmth in such a concise package!

As an owner of numerous Patagonia jackets my go to has always been and continues to be the Nano Puff. Excellent warmth to weight ratio, durability and fit.

Read More to down, but makes up for it in weather resistance. Fit makes this a 2 out of 5, restricting this jacket to strictly backcountry for my frame. Im 510 at 160lbs with a middle distance frame.

My girlfriend tried on the womens and had an inverse issue in the upper torso area making hers too tight. 4 /5 despite strange fit because the fiber holding in place works so well. Would buy again

Better for layering than by itself

A good warm, lightweight and breathable under layer for cold days that packs down well. But I prefer my old Nano Puff for casual or everyday wear. The pockets on this higher than normal to reduce bulk if you have stuff in you puffy and your shell pockets. That makes them less functional for everyday use. I also have issues with the collar always st... Read Moreanding up in the front.

Thanks for this great feedback, Mike! You make some good points about the higher placement of pockets, as the Micro Puff is an excellent choice for climbing with a harness and still being able to access the pockets.

Sweet jacket in serious need of a redesign

This is a great lightweight, warm jacket but the neck and bottom hem are in serious need of a redesign. I bought a M which fit great except for two things: - the tight-fitting, unusual collar which angles up in front poking the chin and squeezing the neck - the very tight lower portion near the hem. Other buyer have complained about these two fit ... Read Morecharacteristics since the jacket's introduction and there hasn't been any redesign.

The BEST lightweight warmest jacket

Best lightest jacket ever owned. So warm for being so lightweight.

February 26, 2020


As a big mountain ski coach I find myself standing still on the mountain during competitions and line scouting for long periods of time (anywhere from -5 degree F days to 25 degree and windy days). On the flip side there are times I am hiking for long periods of time. I needed a light weight, ultra pack-able, toasty warm jacket that I could pack aw... Read Moreay or throw on at a moments notice. The Micro Puff was perfect for what I was looking for. Throw it on for the cold and take it off for the elevated heart rate stuff. I am 6'2 175lbs, normally go large, but I size up in the slim fit jackets so I got an XL in the Micro. I also like the neck zip for on the mountain and fighting the winds when they whip. One thing it is missing is a cinch on the waistband. That would be nice for when the snow gets real deep. Off the mountain I occasionally wear it to and from work but have other jackets I prefer for my other outdoor activities other than . Because the micro puff is such a warm jacket I find myself wanting to wear more breathable airy jackets like my Silent Down or my Calcite. Overall, this is the perfect jacket to keep in the ski backpack when you need to warm up in a flash and be able to pack tight when not in use!

Warm synthetic jacket with style

This jacket is no thicker than a sweater, but it warms the body like a down jacket and blocks the wind like a breathable soft-shell, and it looks stylish. It can handle temperatures down to low forties by itself without any layers with just a cotton t-shirt, and with a layer it can definitely handle temperatures down to subzero, and maybe a little ...

This jacket is light and super comfy, very warm for its weight. I have a very well-worn nano puff jacket that I love and will still use for work, but this piece feels warmer for same weight.

I’m 5’11” and 155lbs.

Hey Neal we'd be glad to [help]( you with a [return or exchange]( Each size on our chart incorporates a range, so the medium is generally designed to fit men with chests ranging from 38" to 40" whereas the large will fit 42" to 44" chests. Also note that the Micro Puff series is a "regular" fit, as opposed to some of our products which are "slim" or "relaxed" fit.

Changed size of medium jacket

Neck is cut way to high and I do not have a short neck. Jacket should be labeled medium extra long neck and potbelly due to excessive room in stomach area. Gave it 2 stars instead of one since workmanship was good just fire the designer.

Response from Patagonia
January 8, 2020

Hi Mike! We're sorry the fit of the neck and torso aren't working for you. The stiffness of the zippers combined with the ultralight fabric of this jacket can cause the belly area to bulge out. May we suggest the [Nano Puff](, which has heavier/stiffer fabric and a slightly wider hip dimension which helps keep it from riding up. Of course if you aren't satisfied with your Micro Puff, you are most welcome to [return]( it.

Great Product, but can be awesome

I love the Micro Puff Jacket! Warm, wind/water resistant, and stylish.

I have owned a number of Patagonia down jackets over the years. This I would rate right up there. It is indeed exactly as described - a lot of warmth in not a lot of bulk. Fits really well - I bought a size L and am 6ft tall and 200lbs. Ripstop fabric and the panelling make for a stylish look too!

For the comparison, I own a Nano Puff jacket—same size and purchased the same year. I was so happy with the Nano that I decided I wanted to try the Micro.

I’m now glad that I gave the jacket a chance. With use, it softened very well and I like the feel of the fabric now. The Micro is warmer and lighter than the Nano, and a joy to wear. I would not wear this jacket while walking through brush because I worry it would tear—but the jacked is designed for light weight warmth and is perfect when considering that goal.

It's almost too warm for a casual walk also. I took it out in 20F temps the other day and it was just about right. I'm amazed at how warm this jacket keeps me while still ... Read Morebeing super thin and light weight. The fit is really nice. I'm 6' and 190lbs and got the large which fits perfectly. Arms are good length, neck is a little tight if you zip it up all the way but I guess that keeps the warmth in. The collar is kind of funky and doesn't lay flat when you 3/4 zip the jacket, almost gives you that "pop'ed" collar look, which is not good. I would buy this jacket again if I wanted a super light warm layer.

Good jacket, ideal for temperatures in the mid 40's to mid to low 30's Fahrenheit (0 to about 10 Celsius for the rest of the world).

As I have found with most Patagonia items, these are cut larger than normal (I usually wear a Large for any other m...

But the fact that their website gives height of model and size of item worn made the decision to order online easier. Only issue that bothers is the top of zipper around the neck. if I wear with collar up and unzipped, the top of zipper seems to keep hitting my chin as I'm looking around, not a deal breaker, just a minor annoyance, so flip to collar down. Will always be a fan of Patagonia with their warranty, which has come in super-handy.

Great Balance of Heat and Cool

This jacket doesn't make you hot to the point where your sweating in it just wearing it. It does a good job of keeping you not cold. This allows you to wear it for long times inside without having to take it off and its very good outside in the cold. I wear it almost every day.

November 4, 2019


Material looks like a shiny trash bag and quilted weave pattern doesn’t flatter the style. It looks like Patagonia is trying to differentiate themselves from competitors to much. When holding the jacket up to light, you’re able to see light through the poorly sewn stiching.

The Micropuff Jacket is incredibly lightweight. The insulation per ounce is excellent but don't expect it to keep you warm at 0F. It's best worn as an insulation layer under a shell.

Nice Jacket with just a couple of minor design flaws for ME

Ok to specify, this is likely the perfect jacket for a wide range of people. In my case it was almost perfect. It is light, easy to pack, warm when on, etc... My only recommendations would be to widen the arms at the elbow. When I am driving or have my arms bent more than 20 degrees, the jacket becomes constricting at my elbow. the rest of the arms... Read More are fine and it is usually in the shoulders where I would find them being tight, but on the Ms Micro Puff it is definitely in the elbow. The only other issue I have is the "collar" design. The back of the jacket does not have a true delineated collar and is more rounded towards the neck. This forces you to wear the jacket in three options... 1. partially unzipped like I do but the collar sticks up and if you turn your head the zippered points of the collar keep poking your jaw line. 2. Fully zipped leaving the collar very tight around the back of your neck and zipping closed just under your lips. or 3. Fully zipped and folded over like a turtle neck. This option may work for some, but I hate having my neck constricted in any way. For me this option is worse than wearing a tie. Like I said before the jacket is solid in most ways and many people will think it is perfect. For me, it is great but not the perfect fit.

great piece to add to my work and travel collection

Micro puff jacket

The weight to warmth ratio is the best i’ve so far. I spend most of my time in a damp environment so down is not ideal. Still warm when wet and paired with a nano air light provides plenty of flexibility if your worried about being to cold or too warm.

The perfect jacket

I love everything Patagonia makes but this one "it took us ten years and we came up with nothing" is really perfect. SUPER light weight and yet warm and cozy, packs down into nothing and fits perfectly. Used it for just about all my flights during the Red Bull X-Alps, the "toughest adventure race on Earth" for nearly two weeks i... Read Moren June (a paragliding and foot race across the Alps) and it kept me warm at cloudbase, in the wind, in the rain...Perfect.

Terrific item.

First and most important to me, the representative was terrific in helping me pick the right shell from among the variety of similar garments. Second, the shell fits, works, breathes and garners compliments for its appearance. I am completely satisfied.

Have loved this jacket so far. Fits well and has convenient pockets on the inside and outside. Great color too (dark green)!

Micro Puff

I love the color. I do like the jacket overall. I am unfortunately between sizes in all Patagonia product. Medium is a little too snug in the shoulders, and maybe a little short in length. However, the sleeve length of a medium fits well. Large fits better in the shoulders, and is okay in length, but then the sleeves are too long and the body is t... Read Moreoo loose fitting. I opted for the medium and am mostly happy. The biggest complaint I have is the top of the main zipper where it ends at the collar. The collar doesn't lay away from the neck and face area when unzipped and is a constant annoyance brushing against my neck and chin. I am hoping that it will eventually soften up and lay away from the neck area, but I do think this was an oversight in design and testing, or maybe it is just my jacket specifically. This is enough of an issue that I can't rate it better than 3 stars.

Thank you very much for your feedback and we're sorry to hear you're disappointed with the collar and zipper of this jacket. We have improved the neck for our fall 19 season. Feel free to take a look at our [Micro Puff Hoody]( for a similar design but with an additional hood, it should help the collar to lay way from your face. Of course, don't hesitate to [return]( the Micro Puff if you haven't already and are unsatisfied.

Easily my favorite jacket ever

I bought this jacket having only owned one other down sweater. I don't know that I have ever put on something more comfortable warm, and lightweight than this jacket. This jacket is awesome.

Nano puff

Great light weight jacket

Warm & Stylish

The micro puff definitely fits the bill. Lightweight, keeps me warm and not too bulky.

What a jacket!

Just took this on its first trip, a shoulder season trek in NZ (Kepler Track). I am so impressed with this jacket. It is incredibly light and unbelievably warm for its weight and bulk - I can scarcely believe it's not down, except it somehow seems even warmer than a down jacket of this weight. It was perfect for the single-digit (celcius) lows... Read More we had and I never needed to wear the additional layers I brought. I am also incredibly impressed by the shell. I accidentally took it caving (Luxmore cave, look it up) and scraped the sleeve on a stalactite. I took it off cursing myself and sure that it had ripped, but no damage whatsoever. Not saying I would take it caving again but the fabric is way more durable than I expected. Fit is roomy on my tall frame but the sleeves are a good length and it isn't baggy - just enough room for a fleece underneath. Actually it is a quite good looking jacket and looks pretty much like any other light puffy you see people wearing all the time. I particularly like the collar which stands up even when unzipped and doesn't flop around. In the dolomite blue it did perfect double duty as a casual jacket in the Queenstown restaurants. Patagonia has seriously made something amazing with this piece - they've finally achieved the holy grail of a truly lightweight, compressible down substitute. Can't wait to see what they come up with next.

When not in use lives in my backpack for those times I need an added layer

I have been using the micropuff for the past 3 months predominantly as a layer for ski patrolling in PNW. Love the compressibility since it’s off and on and in and out of my pack with changes of weather. As far as warmth by itself I find it a bit light probably best in mid 40s plus but then I run cold. I also have a nano puff which I love. I would ... Read Moresay as a layer the nano is probably warmer but not as compressible and not wind proof when using as stand alone.

Men’s Micro Puff Jacket

Sizing and weight are great, and it’s just right for the cold weather activity (or not!) that I do. The one drawback is no drawstring at the waist; it would be nice to be able to make it a bit snug at my waist when I want it.

March 20, 2019

Works as exciting expected

As most reviewers said, it is very light weight and warm especially for our SoCal winters. Haven’t worn it when it’s rained so I can’t speak to how effectively it stays warm and dry. Bought it for s trip to Spain where it’ll be in low to high 60s. Pack ability was a high priority since space is at a premium in my carryon and back pack. I couldn’t f...

Poor design and fit

Ordered the jacket and was completely disappointed. Heed the reviews that this is just poorly designed. Did anyone at Patagonia zip this thing up all the way?

Excelled while backpacking Europe for 42 days in the late fall

First technical piece of Patagonia gear I've owned and I love it. Specifically went for the Micro puff for compressability, weight savings, and warmth. Touring 16 countries in 6 weeks with a 25L backpack. This thing rocked. When not in use it packed down to next to nothing. When in use (which it was for the most part everyday), it was comforta... Read Moreble and held up to light drizzle and decent winds. Currently it's my everyday wear. Need to look into how to wash and reapply DWR finish next. Thinking maybe a technical wash for down would be good and then a spray on DWR finish for water repellancy. Only downside is that the insulation sometimes comes out and you need to cut it. If you don't it'll keep stringing out. Lastly, I'm 6'1" with an atheltic build. This fits perfecting, including all the neck. It's comfortable, contrary to other reviews.

March 5, 2019

HIGHLY recommended!

My fellow campers. I cannot highly enough recommend the Patagonia puffer jacket. I just went outside and 26° weather with that jacket and a T-shirt underneath, and only had a very slight chill. I am completely blown away by how thin the jacket is, yet how warm it is. My north face puffer which is significantly thicker is not nearly as warm or light... Read Moreweight. It is worth every dollar, and I actually think it is a bargain after testing it out for the last couple of weeks. Really really impressed!

March 2, 2019

Amazing little jacket!

I haven't owned this jacket long enough to find any flaws, but it performs far beyond my already high expectations in keeping me warm and dry with hardly any weight or volume. It fits very well. I don't understand all the complaints about bad fit. Maybe try it on before you buy. I've been out in cold wind and rain and snow from Mont... Read Moreana to SW Oregon and always been warmer than I expected. It packs to almost nothing in my pack or travel bag. It is clearly made of very lightweight material (how else could it weigh almost nothing?) and I know I will have to be a little careful not to ask to much of it, but am happy to do that for all its benefits. Wear a shell over it if you're going to be climbing gnarly rocks.

March 1, 2019


Really wanted this jacket, but resisted after reading early reviews. Then the 50% off sale on prior year models tempted me and I took the bait. I'm 5'9, 145 lbs, average build. All of my several Patagonia garments are size medium and fit well. This jacket in size medium fits me well … except, of course, for the collar and neckline. It&#x2...

Fit is off & not that light weight

being eyeing the Micro puff for over a year due to it supposedly being light weight. It's not much lighter than a regular Nano I don't think.

I also found the neck to be extremely uncomfortable. When zipped, the neck is tall enough, and the zipper stiff enough, that it is basically spearing me under the chin.

After a month, stitching in body coming out, along with insulation

I spent a long time researching what lightweight jacket to buy, and went with this one despite there being some other great ones out there.

It’s “weird sizes” are for a reason...

So lots of people are reviewing this jacket negatively because of the way it fits— I really do think it is just suppose to fit snugly as it is a light-weight-thermal jacket.

I Agree With Reviewers About Fit

The fit of this jacket is not at all what one would expect from Patagonia. Medium too small, large too big. Neck is small with the body comparatively huge and unfitted.

I was sceptical that a jacket that was so thin could keep me warm. I am sceptical no longer,

Before I purchased a micro puff jacket in mid-December, I read all the reviews. In particular the ones that said you can’t zip up the collar all the way. Yes, that is true for me as well. However, there is a trade-off. The collar is taller than the collar on my 8 year old Patagonia down sweater. A nice feature when the wind is at my back. I was sce... Read Moreptical that a jacket that was so thin could keep me warm. I am not sceptical any more. With San Francisco Bay Area December and January temperatures in the low 50s I have worn the jacket over a shirt and light sweater. When I am cycling or walking briskly, I have to open the zipper to cool down a bit. Good stuff! As for color, I had my heart set on the Viking Blue color. When I tried to order on-line I found it was out of stock. So I called Patagonia to ask if the Viking Blue jacket was still available. The CSR said, "It was last season's color. Let me see if there are any Patagonia stores that still; have some stock." Click, click, click. “I found some. There are several Patagonia Outlets that have them and the price is reduced." I called the Santa Cruz Outlet. Spoke to a real person, ordered the jacket in Viking Blue. It arrived the following day. Thank you Patagonia.

OMG, THIS thing feels invincible, it's honestly the best warmth to weight ratio I've ever seen from Patagonia.

My wife and I have worn our micro-puffs in the backcounty for 50 days and nights including a nine day ski tour in Yellowstone last March. Theses are superbly designed pieces.

Great lightweight puffy!

I previously purchased the hoody version of this jacket. Honestly,I was a little disappointed with how "thin" it was as an insulating layer (although it is probably equal to a Nano Puff Jacket). I had planned to pack the hoody as a backup warm layer on long (10+ mile) day hikes in the Tetons. My first thought was that I will also need to ... Read Morepack my Nano Puff Vest to get the overall warmth I desired if I happened to need to spend an unexpected night out. I purchased this jacket instead of using my Nano Puff Vest.

So on long day hikes into alpine wilderness,I'll be carrying both the jacket and the hoody as backup warm layers. Together they will provide warmth equal to a full-on down jacket with the advantages of a synthetic fill and little or no additional weight or bulk (just more money!). By the way,I'm 5-11" and 190 lbs and purchased the large in both the hoody & the jacket.

I hope Patagonia makes the needed adjustments,I took this right back to REI who I ordered it from. Based on the other reviews,I know I'm not the only one that feels this way. Nonetheless,I know the new PlumaFill is gonna be a game changer. Looking forward to seeing it be incorporated into other products,hopefully ones that fit like the rest...

Hey Kia, sorry to hear how bummed you are on the Micro Puff fit. We always want you to be fully satisfied with your gear so please feel free to return the jacket to a local Patagonia store or [send it in]( We are aware of the neck fit and have worked to address the issue for this fall 2019 season. The fit of the men's version is straight through the torso and hip and because it doesn't have an adjustable hem it can be a bit baggier on some people. Anytime you have questions on gear, feel free to reach out. We love talking about gear and want to make sure to get you in the right product.

Terrible fit

This jacket doesn't appear to be designed for humans. The collar is significantly taller in the *front*,but it's not big enough to fit over your chin,so it just crushes down on itself instead of wrapping your neck. I'm 5'8',175#,size 32 waist - so,not a professional athlete but also decently fit. Instead of contouring to my... Read More body,the medium jacket is bag-like and just slumps on my body in weird places; the small hem doesn't have the circumference to fit over my butt,and yet is also too baggy and doesn't follow the body. If you're built like the Patagonia model then maybe it fits fine? Hope your neck is long enough! If you're not shaped like a rectangle(?),you're out of luck.

Thanks for the feedback on the Micro Puff, Noah! We're sorry to hear it wasn't a good fit but we appreciate the feedback. The Micro Puff is designed straight through the torso and hips and when it rides up it can make the torso area bulge out. A similar jacket that might work better is the Nano Puff jacket, it features an adjustable hem so you can adjust it over your hips for that perfect fit. In the meantime please feel free to return the jacket to a Patagonia store or [send it in](

I have had a Micro Puff hoody from when first offered and use it close to everyday as a carry layer for backcountry skiing etc. Was excited to get a Micro Puff jacket to use as a layering piece under other stuff including the Micro Puff hoody. But. If you zip up the jacket the collar is way tight! There is not enough room for my bare neck not to me... Read Morention even a thin high collared underlayer. I am 5,9,140 pounds and my neck is a 15.5 in a dress shirt so I am on the slim side of average. To me this is a huge design flaw and fully rules out this as a usable piece for either layering or as an outer layer. Fix this and you have a sale! Z

More than expected

There are times when a technical piece transcends its roots and becomes an instant favorite piece of kit. You can unmute the advertising hype for this new gem: the micro puff will attain a coveted status in your packing list. Weight: it really feels next to nothing. Sometimes you have to lose something to appreciate its absence. This jacket feels ... Read Morepositively buoyant. Warmth: for its size it's quite impressive. I felt it was warmer than a nano or fjord + wool LS shirt in windy conditions which is all I usually need 70% of the time. Fit: thank you patagonia developers. You could have gone with a more fitted cut but you didn't. I'm 6'2' 178lbs (40-42 sport coat) and you nailed the Medium fit to allow this piece to go comfortably with or without layers. If you're always unsure about a medium or large like me,go with medium. The arm,back and chest length are on point. The belly is appropriately generous,a true 'regular fit,' but not overly so- enough to allow a thick flannel or fleece without compressing the insulation. Compression: easily stuffed into the reversible side pocket and comfortably worn under a fitted shell jacket. This jacket literally fills the gaps that other jackets seem clumsily tasked to perform. Style: in the mass sea of 'technical' shiny down and synthetic puffy jackets,you'll blend in smartly. This is not an 'around town' jacket but I certainly could wear it daily in the northwest nov-April as needed. It's comfort factor trumps fashion in my opinion,but in grey it's slightly more innocuous than red or even black because of its sheen. Durability: This is a lightweight insulating piece,not a motorcycle jacket nor made with dyneema fabric. The stitching and materials are what you can expect from this solid company. No surprises. It seems to hold up better to light repetitive abrasions than the nano-air (I got pilling progressing to wear-through at the neck and cuff in the nano-air in 2 jackets) but I do take care not to expose it to unnecessary abuse like through thick brush or spelunking. Fix and repair as needed (unfortunately I can't speak to how the insulation construction lends to repair but there's an ironclad guarantee if necessary). I hope this helps.

Fantastic Jacket

I have been wearing this jacket for several months now and it is great. Very light-weight and warm and compressible for packing. A must buy for hiking and even casual wear. I do have a suggestion for using this material. Make it into a blanket. I would make it into a light-weight blanket for back-packing and other purposes. I am a Vietnam Vet and o... Read Morene of the things that was issued to the field troops was an item called a Poncho Liner. It was made of a lightweight material that served as insulation inside a military poncho. Event when wet it quickly dried out and kept you warm. It was camouflage in coloration. I have no idea who made that item or the material used,but that single piece of equipment was coveted by everyone in the field. I was in Vietnam some 3 years and I went thru several of the poncho liners and in fact brought 2 home with me. We still use them on camping trips and day outings. I think this would be a big seller for Patagonia. Google images Poncho Liner Vietnam War and you can find images.
