Great jacket for fall
'like this jacket a lot for its long torso and sleeves that completely cover my wrists (I'm 5'11"). Caution: if you are broad in the hips, this may be too tight at the hem. The jacket is otherwise pleasantly form-fitting, and the large inner pockets are great for carrying a full-size cell phone, keys, snacks, a paperback.

I was at the local outdoor shop last year, and while they didn't have what I needed in stock, they asked me if I had heard of the Mirco... so grateful! I love this jacket.

Light and breathable
This jacket is an excellent light weight jacket for those Midwest chilly spring mornings or fall evenings. I am 57 150lbs and got a M. The fit is perfect and the jacket moves freely with your body. The reason for 4/5 is that the elastic at the bottom of the jacket is a little snug, but not a deal breaker by any means. You cant go wrong with this ve... Read Morersatile piece!
Loved it until it ripped
I have owned this jacket for exactly one year and I loved it until it ripped. I had noticed when I received it that some stitching was coming out but it was the tiniest amount so I did not think anything of it. Forward to a year later to the date and the little stitching coming out turned into a huge rip. I am so disappointed because I thought it w...

We are so sorry to hear about the rip in this jacket. Due to the ultralight material this jacket is made with, it doesn't make it the most durable jacket for everyday wear. If you'd like, you're welcome to [send](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) this back to us and we may even consider looking into our Nano Puff line as an exchange.
Coral isnt the color you hope it is
I ordered this jacket in December and waited three months to have it delivered. When it arrived I immediately opened it hoping to be thrilled. It is more of a dark neon/fluorescent red than a vibrant coral. There is something about the color that just isnt as rich and pretty as I had hoped for. You might want to see it in person before you buy it.

I have been buying medium size Patagonia jackets for the last 10 years and am super disappointed in the current sizing. This jacket, like many others has small shoulders. Please bring back your sizing from previous seasons! We are athletes and need space in the shoulders.

Wanted to love
I received my micro puff today and I so badly wanted to love it. I kept trying it on and looking closer but there's one major reason I'm so irritated with it. It's kinda subtle if you don't look close but there's dark vertical lines of darker color running down all over the jacket! I kept looking in different mirrors, with ...

My favorite everywhere acket
This jacket is very light and warm . It makes a perfect under layer in colder temps and I love wearing it indoors as well because it is so light and comfortable. I have even slept in it when our heat wasn’t working properly. I love it’s breathability ,I never feel uncomfortable or sweaty going from the cold outside to inside temperatures. I’m 5’8 “...

My girlfriend Erin was given the womens micro puff jacket as a christmas gift. A day after opening it, she wore it as a mid-layer skiing. Although she is always cold, that day she was not. She loved the jacket and was excited to have it. However, while enjoying a apre-ski beer, her puffy eloped with her airpods. We envision the 2 exploring the worl...

However, we choose to believe that the adventurous spirit embodied by our favorite brand occasionally results in products that need to explore on their own. The low rating does not reflect the quality or function of the product, just our experience with it. We place no blame for that on Patagonia.
not warm enough
I love the fit and look, but I bought it thinking that it would be a good jacket for hiking and NY winters and early spring. It is not close to warm enough, and it is so thin so I was immediately cold in temperatures below 40 degrees and any wind. It is a great look, but simply way to thin and far from warm enough.
This jacket nails it. Beautiful style features as well as the perfect balance between warmth and low bulk attractiveness. The absence of a shoulder seam allows for such a flattering fit. The colors are beautiful too. My most FAVORITE Patagonia down jacket and totally worth the price!
Super weird fit - giant shoulders and narrow hip
I have so many Patagonia clothes. Dirt craft shorts, soft shell skiing pants, tights, windbreaker pants, running shirts, and mountain bike shirts and ALL of them are my favorite clothes. I thought I had a read on Patagonia's fit, but when I got this jacket, boy oh boy was I wrong. Although my shoulders seem fine for all of the other clothes I ... Read Moreown, all of a sudden they are WAY TO SMALL for this jacket. I seriously haven't ever had a jacket with such large armpits - this SURE isn't a layering jacket. OK, so can I layer under it? No way. The bottom of the jacket barley fit over my hips - yes the same hips that fit in the xs/s size pants. So, these hips are good enough for pants but not for jackets - that is just plain weird and confusing. Seriously, I know this is a super highly rated jacket, but as a avid Patagonia wearer, I am still a little shocked at how terribly it fits.
A hoodie is cheaper and warmer.
I bought the micropuff on recommendation from a salesperson in the store. I was looking for something warm, but not so warm to leave me a sweaty mess after hiking uphill. I realize this sort of thing is subjective on individual useage, so I don't blame the salesperson, but this jacket is just not warm at all. It was 40 degrees out, and paired ... Read Morewith a t shirt and a hoodie, thick pants and hat, I was chilly the whole hike. I move very quickly, so I imagine if I was going any slower I'd have been very uncomfortable.
Thank you for your feedback! We're sorry to hear the Micro Puff Jacket wasn't quite warm enough for your preferences. We would recommend checking out the [Macro Puff](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-macro-puff-jacket/80105.html?isSearch=true&dwvar_80105_color=CUA), as it features more than double the PlumaFill synthetic insulation when compared to the Micro Puff Jacket. Of course, if you're not satisfied with this item, you are welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return) it.
I have had the jacket roughly 2 weeks and worn it a handful of times to do everyday tasks such as run to the store. I haven't hiked, biked, or been rough on it and the stitching is already showing significant wear and tear. I love my other Patagonia apparel but not impressed with this.
Hi Emily, we're so sorry to hear that your Micro Puff isn't holding up. We'd be more than happy to return or exchange it for you. Please follow this link to begin that process, https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return.
So, so good.
Light as a feather, orange color is dreamy and love the packability. Patagonia is KILLING IT too with their commitment to awareness of environmental issues. Love how they put it out there, no holds barred with a clear message of accountability and stewardship. Just saw the documentary Artifishal and am very glad to support this company.
good mid-weight warmth and super light
this jacket is super light weight and works well fro cold backpacking trips where weight and space are a priority. I gave it 3 stars because the women's fit is too narrow in the shoulders.

Fit a bit off, other wise love it.
Traded in the medium for a small. I am 5'7" 130lb. The medium was perfect in body but too big in length and arms. Small is good but tight across chest. I wear it as a sweater basically. Very soft and warm and light. Love the orange and the contrasting trim color. Please make more of this. Thanks Patagonia for all you do!
Compared to the Down
The down is definitely warmer but this one is way lighter in weight. The zipper is slim and there isnt any tightening cords for the bottom of the jacket. However, I don't need any of those things. The zipper doesn't get caught, the pockets are perfect in size plus the additional large inside pockets are great. I got caught in a light rain... Read More storm and the jacket was still pristine. Wind doesn't go right through it like other lightweight jackets. I'm just totally in love with it. Additionally, I typically am a large in the shirts so I got a large and it is very slim fitting.
Warm and Packable
I have this jacket in medium and large for use with different layering options. The medium fits me better, even with a couple of wool shirts and wool hoody beneath it...but the tight ribbing at the waist and wrist make it want to ride up which exposes my middle and wrists to cold air. I think with a different design and better tapering at the waist... Read More (more hour glass shaped), the medium would be my 'go to'. But because of the tendency to ride up, I got the large for when I'm out in snow with lots of movement and want the jacket to stay in place. Other than some peculiarities of fit, this jacket is super warm for its size and very comfortable. Dries very quickly, which is great for me in the rainy PNW. I'm thin with long arms and small shoulder width.
Micro Puff Staple
I was on the hunt for a new Nano Puff to update my oh-so-used pullovers. In walks the Micro Puff to woo me, though I wasn't quite sure what the difference was, I knew the higher price point meant it was somehow deemed better. I chose the navy color because I wasn't too excited about the other choices. I prefer pullovers, but went with the... Read More jacket since I needed something new for work. Not only is this thing cozy, but it is much prettier in person. I have long arms and wide shoulders, which the style fits just fine. It is a little tight across my tummy and hips, but that is being remedied through a little conscious eating AND I think that is intentional so as to trap in the heat. For reference, I'm 5'9", 165 lbs. and have the medium.
For those girls that are taller, this jacket sits right at your hips. I tried it on and it was tight around that area and someone a few inches shorted but would get the same size put it on and it fit perfectly at her butt. These types of jackets just dont work well for taller girls. I am 5'9.

I've worn the jacket about every day since I got it. Other reviewers are right that the neck is rather long and rubs on your chin. Other than that, no complaints. Plus I find I'm getting more used to it -- maybe it is softening up? Not sure. I do wish I'd gotten the hood... Bummer for sure. But anyway, I just went snowbiking in 15 de... Read Moregree temps and had two very thin long sleeve shirts under the jacket -- I was far overdressed. I find the jacket is really warm as long as I am moving. If I am just sitting, it is more for a California winter. That said, I bought it for Wyoming winter running, skiing, and biking, and it is perfect for that. I'm glad I bought it. I'm 5'3", 115 lbs, and I'm super happy with the small.
excellent warmth for the weight
I haven't yet had to the chance to test this jacket in the field but I love the level of warmth it provides for the weight and bulk. Initially I thought I might return it because it appears the same thickness as my nano-puff but then I realized how super warm it is and I'm hooked. I left one star off due to the cut. As others have mention... Read Moreed it seems to be narrower in the hips and the arms are a bit long on me. I do love the length of the jacket and the arms aren't so long that they are in my way.
Love this jacket
When I opened the packing I couldn't believe how light weight it was, I thought it would never work for anything more than a crisp fall day, but I was wrong, it's very warm, and so comfortable. I LOVE Patagonia products. I would love to buy some ski pants with the same technology. Thank you.
I love the fit and it's so warm, it's almost perfect. The only problem is the neck - I either zip it up all the way and it digs into my chin, or I keep it unzipped part way and the sides ride up above my ears. It's still a great jacket, but it would be even better with something soft on the chin area of the zipper.
Light and warm
I do like this jacket a lot. The reason it doesn’t get 5 stars is fit. It’s a bit snug in the shoulders and upper arms so that I can only fit a thin base layer under it. I’ve worn it for a couple of chilly morning walks, and it keeps me cozy. It will be a good hiking and skiing layer.
Light & Warm but Narrow Waisted
I was amazed at how light this jacket felt when it arrived in the mail. It's quite warm, especially for the weight, though I've only tested in it mid-30s to 40s so far. With a long sleeve or light sweater at those temps it holds up pretty well. I ordered a medium which I usually wear in Patagonia products. This jacket fit well in the sle...

I am blown away by the warmth yet lightness of this jacket and it is very comfortable!

This jacket is small around
This jacket is small around the hips. I had a large nano puff that fits great but the large micro puff is too small around the hips.
Thanks so much for your review! For this jacket, we developed a unique pattern unlike traditional synthetic jackets.These pattern lines can sometimes fit or drape unlike other similar fit jackets (the Nano Puff, for example).

I love this jacket, I went between the micro and the nano and am so glad I went with the micro. The waterwicking works great, keeps me warm, not much else to ask for.

I’m typically a size 6 or 8, so I purchased the M size. I’m 5’11”, straight frame. I have the similar jacket from north face, the S fits so well! This jacket is quite tight around my hips, causing it to ride up around my midsection. Very unflattering!
Hi Elizabeth, we're sorry to hear that you've had an issue with fit on the Micro Puff Jacket. We'd be more than happy to return or exchange that for a different size. We'll reach out to you to start that process.
I was suspicious of a jacket so thin that claimed the kind of warmth they claimed. Welp. Totally true.

Add to that the limited closet space that comes with city living and I realized I needed to invest in a few good pieces. My boss sent me to P... Read Moreatagonia and I have no regrets, whatsoever. This jacket is super thin has deep pockets and is comfortable. I got the XL because I’m pretty top heavy, but realize now I could have probably gone with a L.
So sad about this...I’ve debated for months on this jacket and finally decided to order it. The bad reviews on the jacket were about fit and I thought, oh well, I have another Patagonia jacket and the fits MUST be about the same. Well they’re not. This jacket is not made for people that are not 5’6 at minimum. It fell down too low and therefore was... Read More tight on the bottom, the sleeves went past my finger tips and the collar sat awkwardly high. Unfortunately I’ll be returning. I also was disappointed there wasn’t a flat black or grey, the shiny black looks like a trash bag! But the quality and lightness are what earns its stars.
Thank you for your comments on the fit and we are sorry to hear that it didn't work out for you. The Micro Puff is unique in that the innovative pattern we used to achieve its lightweight qualities makes the fit drape differently. Please feel free to [send](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return) that back to us and we'd recommend checking out our Nano Puff instead!
Great quality, poor fit for my body type
I bought my usual size for patigonia in this jacket. It was very tight in the bust. I sized up....it was still to tight in the bust but getting loose other places. The fabric has a shine to it and that just exentuated it. If you're a small/medium frame and a DDD if likely won't work for you either.

Ordered up a size
Lightweight and warm. The collar is easy to fold down. I was worried it would be stiff against my neck. I did order up a size and it fits a little loose like I wanted.

Read Morelly baggy (and I don't have skinny arms), so that's kind of weird but it doesn't bother me too much. I'm wearing this as a casual, top layer so I have room to layer underneath.

Love This Coat!
The jacket is lighter than I expected and performs quite well. I was warm and cozy while testing it out during a cool night at a high altitude. I also love the way it fits. It fits perfectly on my arms and is long enough that I do not ever need to worry about a back draft. I am very happy with this product.

I really love this jacket, the color especially ( the violet is gorgeous) and how lightweight it is. But only gave 3 stars instead of 5 because of the cut of the jacket.

Nice jacket, terrible fit
I have broad shoulders, and, like most of Patagonia’s jackets, the Medium is too small in the shoulders and the Large is too wide and long in the torso. The extra length causes the collar to ride up around my ears when the jacket is zipped. It’s a very nice piece but the fit is strange and uncomfortable.
Great light weight warm jacket
I used this a lot on a recent rafting trip to keep warm at night. I layered it over a fleece top and under a rain coat and was toasty. I will get a lot of use out of this for camping, hiking, rafting and bike touring because it is so light and packs so small. I order a size up (Size S rather than XS) to layer.
Should have stuck with Nano
I have owned a Nano and Down jacket and the Micro is great quality but the sizing is not true to other jackets. Bottom is extremely tight which is uncomfortable for ladies with larger booties.

The micro puff is my favorite cool weather puffy; ultra lightweight, wind resistant, and super compressible, it disappears into my back to emerge as an airplane pillow or insulation for cool hikes, airports, or airplanes.

I wore this for a half hour and it drove me nuts around the collar. Especially when I was driving the car, the collar would come up and hit me in the chin. I had it unzipped halfway down ... I would try to move the collar back to the side, away from my face, and it would creep back over and then poke me. I felt as though I was under attack by my new jacket! I think the hoody version of MIcro Puff keeps the collar pulled back if you have it halfway zipped so it is not a problem. You can even see in the product video that the top of the collar hits right under the chin. I suppose it is a tradeoff because it might be great if it is snowing. Unfortunately, though, the collar is not soft as there is some stiff trim running up the the top. So, just be sure you really like that collar before you commit to it.
I'm 5'4", 130. Slim build. The jacket fits very well. Arms are long, I like that it has no defined shoulder seams. I bought it to go under 3 gore-tex Patagonia jackets.

I use this as an under layer with my shell when skiing. I've had it less than 6 months and I have about 12 holes that are currently being closed with duck tape. It looks li... Read Moreke I've had it for years. After the ski season ends I'm sending it in to get properly mended. I'm a little bummed because I wanted to bring this camping this summer but there is no way I would wear this as an outer layer for fear of more holes.
This jacket didn't fit me at all. It fit through the chest,but that was it...too long in the body,too small in the hip area,and too long in the sleeves. Seems like it would work well for someone much taller than me,or at least with a longer torso. I thought it might help someone else if I provided approximate measurements of the size small tha...

Soooooo light! But fit wasn't quite right for me
Let me start by saying I'm keeping this jacket because I do really like it - so light it nearly floats,wind resistant,warm without being hot - perfect comfort in the 30 degree weather we've had so far. I'm 5' 8",160 lbs and ordered a large. A few notes to the designers: 1) sleeves are too long and the edging makes them hang... Read More loose over my hands vs hugging my wrists in any way. I have longish arms,so was surprised by this - had to roll them up an inch which looks a little weird; 2) the length of the jacket is perfect - falls mid hip,but the bottom edge is kind of snug - if you are curvy like me on the bottom,this isn't ideal; 3) I don't know why but the edges of the collar hit me uncomfortably in the jaw - scratchy and irritating. I manage by turning the whole collar down. Having said all that ,I love the comfort and lightweight of this jacket so much I am keeping it. Hope I don't regret it over time!!!!!
So far so good.
I just bought this to replace my Down Sweater (from 2010) and will be wearing it daily to work,and hiking in Southern California and Iceland. I'm almost 5'11",so I love the fit in the body and arm length. I couldn't decide on a color and settled on the Elwa Blue. It looks great. I like the fitted still. My only complaint is that... Read More Patagonia's sizing algorithm initially recommended a large,which was giant on me. I'm always a medium in Patagonia tops and jackets,and this one was no exception.
