We recently discovered that certain styles of the Capilene® Cool Daily and the Tropic Comfort product lines do not meet the 50+ UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating we claimed for them. They still offer solid UV protection—it’s just not as much as advertised. If you own one of these shirts, click below for more information.Learn More

perfect for anything
I wear this vest for all kinds of activities including golf, hiking, walking, riding and just going to the store.

Wanted to like this ...
I ordered both the Micro Puff Vest & Jacket, and was not fond of the fabric or the fit this style. While I have every confidence in Patagonia and the level of warmth the Micro would offer, I felt it was too thin, too crinkly (feel of fabric), and an awkward fit for my 5'4" 105 lb. frame. Sad to say I was disappointed, and returned the... Read More vest & jacket to try a different style.
Thank you for your review on the Micro Puff Vest. We're sorry that this didn't work out for you. This particular piece of gear was designed to be ultralightweight, while still maintaining warmth. The technical material was constructed to be windproof and water-resistant, which may be what was causing that feeling you mentioned. It's a great piece of gear, but maybe not suited for your needs. We're always happy to have a conversation with you about intent of use, the conditions you live in, and the measurements of the garments if you're interested, just to reach out to [Customer Service](https://help.patagonia.com/s/). We're happy to help you narrow it down!
Too snug on lower portion of vest. Pockets bulged. Not flattering at all. Too short. Fit would have been more flattering if it was longer. ie: below hip or longer. A larger size would've been too big on top. Typically, this is not an issue with size medium vests/tops. The fit just seems funky!
We are sorry to hear about all the sizing issues with this vest. We appreciate the feedback on that and hear your concerns. Our Micro Puff line has a very specific fit for certain design intents so we may suggest checking out the [Nano Puff Vest](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-nano-puff-vest/84242.html?dwvar_84242_color=BRLG).
Very light weight and packable
Size small seems about right compared with other coat/vest purchases, however it seems a bit snug though arm pits. Haven't "tested" its warmth yet.
Hey there, thanks for the review! If the size small is snug in the armpit area, feel free to swap it out for a size up. To get started on an exchange, please click [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Light but warm
The jacket is meant to be long enough to cover your hips and butt, however it runs very small in the hips so I cant pull it down correctly.
Hey there! Thanks for taking the time to write this review. This vest actually isn't meant to be that long. You could consider checking out the [Nano Puff Vest](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-nano-puff-vest/84247.html?dwvar_84247_color=FEA), which also wasn't designed to cover one's rear, but the construction was made so that it tapers out and is less tight in that area. Additionally, feel free to reach out to us the next time to offer garment measurements before making your next purchase. We're always happy to help out with this!
Wanted this to work, but for was way off
I have a micro puff jacket, but this vest didnt fit the same way at all. It was too long and too tight at the bottom. I have kind of a short torso, so if you do too, Im guessing you wont dig the fit. I thought it was super unflattering, so I returned it. The color is great and as advertised.
Fit was a little off
I am size small in Patagonia across the board but this vest ran a little long and bunched up along the hips. I bought because I wanted a Navy vest and it was on sale but I ended up returning it and bought my tried and true, the nano puff vest in Navy and I absolutely love it.
I am 5'3" and this vest fitter perfectly. Usually, I have to go to a bigger size because some clothes are made for a small chest, but this one fits perfectly and it is not big on the underarms and it is not too long, it is the perfect fit for me and it not bulky either.

a bit too tight at the bottom
I love everything about this vest - it fit perfectly in the arms and across the torso. It was a bit too tight across the waste and legs. I'm not sure if its the length or the straight cut but it wouldn't sit properly at the hips; it kept wanting to roll up like a tire above my waste line, so I had to exchange for an XL which is slightly t...

Super light for layering
Order up if you plan to layer this vest over a sweater or jacket that covers your hips. The torso/shoulder area is forgiving but the hips are snug when the vest is zippered. However, if you're layering this vest underneath another jacket, sweater, or even a shirt, the snug hip will work without looking bulky. You might even tuck it into snow p... Read Moreants. The grey color is more steely than feathery, not a good match with my olive skin but could be great with pinker skin tones. Overall, the technology that maximizes lightness with warmth is great.
Warm and light
I wanted a vest that packed down small to carry in my work (PhD student, fisheries) and game bag (upland bird hunter). This vest is great over a base layer and warm.

Although I am a man, I like to buy these vests, jackets, and hoodies for the several women in my family ( six adult sized and one more in two years) for birthdays and Christmas.

Read Morely, in 2020, when we needed cheering up, Patagonia abandoned the signature bright colors that made it easy for friends and family, or searchers to find the wearer, this years womens vest colors seem bent on camouflage and my wife, daughters-in-law, and grandchildren all give a hearty thumbs down to this years colors. Please bring back the signature reds, blues, etc. The contrasting zippers are also very fun.
Can only comment on fit
I did receive this vest but i have not worn it yet, so i can not comment on comfort and breathability. But on sizing I tried on an XS in the store and also a S in another color. I had to order the S as the shoulders were very small, I guess i have a broad back. But the rest of the vest is loose on me.
Comfortable fall vest
I love this vest -- perfect for cooling weather now, and will make a nice laying vest as temperatures drop. I especially love the two large interior pockets -- large enough to easily hold my iPhone, plus snacks and keys, so I can take an afternoon hike with just a water bottle in hand. I also appreciate that it is a bit longer than some vests.
Collar wont stay down
The collar wont stay down and it annoying. Great color but very thin.
We apologize for the annoyance with that collar and thank you for the feedback. We always want to ensure you're pleased with your purchase, so please feel free to [send](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) this back to us.
Light but mighty
I was searching for a versatile layer for my winter runs and glad I gave this a go! I have other vests but wanted something lighter for running.

These do run longer than my o... Read Moreld puff vest so it feels roomier at the top and can rub the chin if I don’t adjust it properly. But length would cover my butt so running in tights isn’t as cold!! Highly recommend!
Ordered the wrong size, called customer service, and they shipped out the correct size the very next day. The jacket has kept me warm and able to move around easily as I finish up my holiday shopping. It is super lightweight and easy to put away when you are in doors. This is my second Patagonia jacket ❤️
Micro Puff Vest is warm
I have the Micro Puff Jacket, love it for those super cold days skiing in the wind in the backcountry for an added layer going downhill. I bought the micro vest to layer with other Patagonia layers. I am 5' and 112 lbs and ordered the xs. Fits just right over a Patagonia base layer. Then I add the new R1 layer over it on cold days skiing recen...

Love this vest! I have the coat and it's also great. The bright pink color is fantastic and gets lots of compliments. I'm 5'9" and 145 lbs (thin upper body/34B). I'm usually a Patagonia M and I could have gone with the S (a little too snug at the elastic bottom) or the M so went with the medium and am really happy with it. ...

I really wanted to love
I really wanted to love this vest. It's a great weight for active winter activities but the fit was off. It was a little long for an active vest, which could have been fine except that it was also snug around my hips, making it ride up and lift up above my shoulders and bulge in the middle. It also was strangely large around the waist, and the... Read More combination of that plus it riding up led me to return it. Tried both sizes I normally wear and neither worked.

I’ve rotated this into my
I’ve rotated this into my Fall/Winter line up immediately. I like the size and color. Though the fit is a bit odd. It’s so lightweight, the collar and shoulders ride up and bunch up around my neck.

A great extra layer!
I really tried hard to LOVE this vest, but the best I could do was LIKE it. The pros: It’s so lightweight, it’s like barely adding another layer and blends nicely under jackets and thicker layers.

Read Morecould notice a difference after removing it, but it doesn’t let my arms overheat, a problem I have with my down puffy hoodie. It stuffs down nicely so if I do shed a layer, it’s easy to pack away in my purse or jacket. The cons: This is a longer vest than other Patagonia vests I own; it extends beyond my hips, and the collar hits just above my jawline when popped up. It also seems to run a bit large. This small-sized vest (which is the size I wear in almost every Patagonia top) had more of a loose fit around the torso with ample bust space but was a little tight at the hips; it was not a slim fit like my older ultralight hoodie which has a little more forgiving shape (form-fitting through the bust and torso and flared a bit at the hips). Overall, I will probably use this as an extra layer in the fall and spring, under my raincoat, or by itself over a long-sleeve shirt. It’s an awesome vest for climbing, hiking, running errands, as an extra layer out on the mountain or around the house. I should have gone with an XS if I wanted a slimmer fit, but on the off-chance I have another baby, the extra space I have in this vest will come in handy.
Who designed this?
I purchase, tried on and quickly returned the new Micro Puff Vest. I also bought the regular down vest which I kept.

Maybe these qualities are for a reason but it was not f... Read Moreor me.
Hello Dara, we're sorry to hear this vest wasn't for you. The overall fit is different from our other vests due to the unique pattern that we designed for this one as part of the minimalist design we wanted to achieve. Thanks for your feedback!
Excellent lightweight vest
The fit is appropriately snug with my larger chest. Works great under any jacket. A minor issue is that the collar is a bit high.

Backpacking Yes, Tinder Dates No
Likes: the pockets are high enough to get into with a backpack hip belt on so that's great. It's super lightweight but still pretty warm.

Fit was awful
Unless you have a boy-like figure, this vest will not fit over your hips. One wonders why a cinch cord was even included at the bottom of this garment.

You’ll live in this vest
I bought this vest for my 11 year old daughter who’d been stealing my micro puff for the last 4 months. The women’s small is a bit big but she’ll grow into it! The new design leading up to and including the collar is really sharp. We (my daughter and I) can now be found wearing this vest most days. Great to wear as a light layer over a tee shirt in...

Trim design, collar seals out early Fall chills without feeling restrictive. Love the sturdier denier Patagonia's using. Dress up or down. Outdoors, casual or professional. Great midlayer for usual West Coast transition weather conditions and all environments and packs down to two hand sizes.
I didn’t love this. My first impression was that it felt like a plastic garbage bag. It was as light as a plastic bag too, so maybe that’s a pro for you if you’re backpack adventuring! I was looking for something a bit more cozy for cold sunny hikes near my home. Also, like other reviewers have said, the fit was a bit long. I actually have a long t...

Great concept, faulty design
Pros: super lightweight without compromising warmth. I'd say equivalent in warmth to the nano puff vest, but much lighter. Packs down very small. I have almost lost it a few times because I couldn't feel its weight in my pack/bag/etc. Cons: I had to give this vest 2 stars because, within a month of purchasing, the diagonal baffling stitc... Read Morehes on the sides have come undone in six places. Loose threads are spiraling out from the sides of the vest. One or two loose threads I might understand, but these are coming undone as easily as the temporary stitching you see in formal suits! This is after less than daily use, and only casual wear. I had purchased this to add to my ice climbing kit, but I doubt it will stand up to technical use as an insulating layer. I'm really disappointed in (and surprised by) the extremely poor quality of the stitching given the cost. Also, as another reviewer mentioned, the torso runs very long; hits below hip. I'm hoping Patagonia solves the faulty side stitching for next fall/winter. I'll be taking mine back for warranty replacement on endless loop until then...
Hate the fit, love the technology
Typically I love pagatonia clothing however was disappointed with this vest. First I will acknowledge that the PlumaFill insulation was amazing-- it is impressively lightweight and warm. But the fit of the vest made it impossible to keep. I am 5'2" 115 lbs and purchased an XS. For my size I have an average torso length. This vest is very ... Read Morelong, and the collar long as well, which was bearable until I sat down. Each time I sat it would force the collar up to my ears. I tried opening the collar but the material is such that it does not open and lay flat against the shoulders. Also, even with standing, the shoulders were bunched, constantly giving the appearance that I had shoulder pads on, which is strange for a vest this thin. I think this was due to the elastic around the arms being cinched in a way that affected the shoulders. I would be happy to purchase this vest again if adjustments were made to this design to make it comfortable for an XS person to wear.
I have been a Nano-Puff fan for years and am still. I have a dozen or so in mostly size small, a few medium, and one large, depending on how I'm using them. Responding to an earlier review about the square quilting, Patagonia went to the square quilting on the Nano vs. diamond pattern some years ago and I've never been as happy with the s... Read Morequares either. Here comes along the Micro-Puff and thought I would give it a try. I was leery -- I got a Nano-Air a few years ago that I hate (and should have returned, whiny me). The material is awful, the fit is ridiculous. Perhaps it's different now. The design and fabric on the Micro-Puff vest is just terrific -- A little longer down the hip than the Nano-Puff, which is a little boxy looking (I'm 5'7") and I always feel like I'm having to tug it down, and the material is a dream, so light and comfortable. The medium I ordered is a little more generously cut than the Nano Puff, too. I always wondered why the vests were cut so small in Nano-Puff. I'm wearing the Micro-Puff now in Sedona, where it's 40's in the mornings recently. Thank you, Patagonia, for continuing to innovate.
Very warm,especially when wet
I love this vest! It is very warm,espically whn it is wet,and it is very versatile. I wear it when I am doing yoga,if it is cold,hiking (if it is really cold I use it as a base layer or mid layer),and I will every wear it to work. Where I work it isn't really fancy,and the Micro Puff Jest looks nice. I defiantly recommend it. 100%
