This jacket is great for spring, summer, fall and winter.
You can pack this it in your bags and it doesn't take up much space, take it camping, use it for hiking, biking and skiing, I have 3 of them and want more of them in different colors. the fit is a little smaller, so I sized up to a medium. Very comfortable, sturdy light jacket!
Perfect fit and Color
Im 56, weigh 134 pounds and I was debating between the medium and small. I went with the small and its a perfect fit. I unfortunately have big upper arms and I was afraid it would be too tight but it wasnt . I actually still have room to layer and it has a relax fit without looking boxy.

Best Jacket Ever
I got this coat after debating for months about whether or not it was worth the price and I can honestly say that it is. Ive had it for a few weeks now and I love it! Its warm, light weight and looks great! Ive gotten caught in light rain/drizzle and have stayed completely dry. Its my go to jacket and my only regret is how long I waited to get it!
So warm, but without the bulk
I already had the vest and was impressed out how warm it felt without extra bulkiness. I decided to order the jacket for the same reason. I liked this color more than I thought I would - excellent for walking the dog in winter for visibility. It is also great for travelling with because it packs down so small.
Patagonia nano puff
Bought this for my granddaughter as a gift. I love the color and I know its a warm jacket!! Im sure shell love it also. Just wish Patagonia would make a 3X in nano puff jackets. I know several woman who would buy them. I generally wear a 2X but with a jacket Id like it to be a little loose so Id definitely buy a 3X!!!!
Super warm and very lightweight. Bought it for my first backpacking trip in Yosemite and can't wait to wear it. Came highly recommended and I LOVE PATAGONIA!
Great sales experience. With SIP, the sales guy Finn helped me over the phone, directing me to the website to pull up styles and colors so I could see what he was describing.

Lots of discomfort
Hi there, I really love Patagonia products and my family buys Patagonia every chance we get, but this one really made me very unhappy as there were multiple areas of discomfort.

The XS size fits perfectly on the upper body, but the sleeve length and body length are too long and the stomach area feels a little tight, so going down to XXS size would not work.

Just received my jacket. It looks and feels very nice - a great weight and material feels like good quality.

Narrow Hip Cut
I love Patagonia and this jacket (quality, color, design) however it is cut a little too narrow in the hip area (it's straight and narrow like a man's body) for a woman's jacket. I have 3 Patagonia jackets and they all have the same problem. Everywhere else fits fine. It would be great if the design for "women's" jacke...

Lightweight and Long Lasting
I have had my jacket for about a year and half. It's lightweight and good for layering. I usually wear mine in weather above 40 degrees. I wish I had ordered a different color though, as the white one stains and the coloring around the sleeves gets darker, which does not wash out. I have noticed a few loose strings whilst owning this jacket, b... Read Moreut nothing too drastic.

Thank you so much for your feedback, and we're sorry to hear about the quality issues you are having with your Nano Puff. We have reached out to you privately to further assist you with this.
Happy with the Small
Im 5ft 7in 123lbs. the small fits just how I had hoped. Theres enough room to layer underneath, but it still has a fitted look to it. I do wish the sleeves were a bit longer. When I raise my arms out in front of me, they pull back a few inches from my wrists. This happens to me with many coats though.
I love Patagonia products and the look of them. My boyfriend has the same jacket in black. He bought me one also in black and I returned it because I didn't want to match and it was too small. I generally don't love the women's color selections for any brand and looked elsewhere for other colors and similar jackets. Eventually I gave... Read More up and determined that the roamer red color combo in this one would work. The fit is great but I am so disappointed with what happened after only 3 wears. I don't wear much makeup. Just spot foundation and a light mineral powder. The collar is already trashed. It looks greasy, discolored, and honestly awful. It instantly looked like a jacket someone has had for years. My skin is way more dry than oily and I've never seen this happen with any other jacket. I really regret picking this color. It's very disappointing.

Solid Wardrobe Mainstay
I first bought this jacket a couple of years ago before a 21-day winter rafting trip on the Grand Canyon. It was perfect underneath my drysuit. It's a great down alternative - keeping one warm, yet drying fast. I ended up using this jacket for everyday use and in the forest where I work as a botanist. It's held up very well through a few ... Read Morewashes and heavy use. For reference, I'm almost 5'4, 127 lbs. with an hourglass shape. The small fits well. I'm a 4-6 on top and the XS was a bit snug through the shoulders. While pretty streamlined, I can still fit a light hoody or sweater underneath and wear it beneath a shell. Love the piki green color and the fact it's made from recycled materials.
Go to daily driver!
So I've owned the nano puff jacket for a little over a year now and I've put it thru its paces and it always performs perfectly. I am 5'6" 140# and I went with a size S. I can comfortably fit sweaters underneath. When hiking in cold weather I usually have a Better Sweater under it, which can easily keep you warm down to about 0 ... Read Moredeg F. Being a New Englander, I've stood out in a winter barbecue getting snowed on for 2 straight hours and despite sopping wet shoulders and forearms I was completely warm inside. The stay warm when wet insulation is amazing. Tho usually I have a shell on (for activities like ice climbing or in chances of rain on summits) to stay dry and keep out wind. This jacket always lives up to the task and easily packs into its own pocket, which is great for travel.
A little snug
I usually wear a size M, so that's what I ordered. It definitely fits, but it's a little snug. This isn't a problem for me as I am still able to comfortably wear light sweaters underneath, but for those who want to wear thick sweaters or hoodies underneath, or for those who like looser fitting clothing it might be best to go up a siz...

It has kept me warm in temperatures down in the low 40's, but any colder and I would need a thicker coat. Overall I am happy with my purchase.
Inseam coming undone, strings of fabric are coming out.
I have almost had this jacket for a year and parts of it are falling apart. It does keep me very warm, but I am sad to report that strings of the insulation keep coming out. I have pictures to share, but there is no where for me to add them. I would spend your money somewhere else. Very disappointed, I really loved this jacket.

Absolutely love it!
I’ve been looking for a light but warm jacket for ages. After careful consideration, reading lots of different reviews and comparing nano vs. micro puff, I decided to get this one. First and foremost, I live in San Diego so I didn’t need a super heavy duty or warm jacket. Secondly, this jacket was the most economical for my budget. Lastly, this jac... Read Moreket is already designed to allow layering underneath. I got an XXL to allow for a sweater underneath but it turns out I didn’t need to. The XXL was too baggy and bulky. I returned it for a XL and that fits perfectly.
Perfect for every day!
Excellent all around jacket. I ended up ordering the nano puff jacket because I love my vest so much. I have a down sweater too, but am a bit tired of random feathers popping out, so went with the nano puff this time. Very happy...just as warm, and truly versatile. Great for layering too.
not fit right
The medium had lots of extra material/room in the shoulders and the arms are very long. I'd have liked to go down to a small , which fit everywhere but the boobs. The sales lady said it looked like I was wearing a sports bra. I would recommend this jacket if it fits you. My husband has one and loves it.
We live in south Georgia where it doesn't get really cold but will on some winter days. I got one of these for my birthday and just love it! Not too bulky but yet still very warm for those days it does get into the 30's. I purchased this one for my girlfriend and we are both very happy with them.
The Nano Puff Jacket is wonderful for those warmer winter days, 40 degrees and above. I plan to take it to Sedona with me too for those chilly desert mornings next fall. Perfect for lite hiking and (Northern Michigan) winter running. Highly recommend to anyone interested in a lite and no-fuss jacket!
This is my 2nd Nano Puff jacket. Bought it to have another color option to wear.

I got a Nano Puff jacket for Christmas and I LOVE IT! It is true to size, I am 6' and am fluffy if ya know what I mean. I stay Cold nonstop and I love how comfortable my jacket is. I could definitely dress it up or just wear it casual and it is just SO comfy! I Love it, I love it, I love it! I would definitely recommend this jacket!

Best Jacket ever!
I absolutely love this jacket! It is definably my go-to jacket for skiing, on warm days I wear it as an outer layer, and on cold days I wear it under another jacket and it layers perfectly. It is also great to pack on trips as it folds into basically nothing and weighs very little. I have also used this jacket for hiking and just walking to class.
A basic must have
This jacket is so versatile and an absolute staple for all wardrobes (men and women). I wear it as an everyday jacket on cool spring and summer evenings as well as in the fall and winter (I live in Salt Lake). For extra warmth it I wear it under my ski jacket when I am skiing and temps are low. It is a perfect travel jacket that fits in its own pou... Read Morech and takes little room. This jacket isn't an athletic fit but that makes it easier to layer underneath and wear on cool summer nights without getting to hot. A must have!
Nano Puff continues to be awesome!
I have always wanted a black full-zip nano puff and finally got one! The nano puff does not disappoint. They're so warm for their weight and can't beat the style. I think my medium did run a bit larger than my other nano puff and other medium jackets I own. Love it!
Fantastic all around jacket
This is my second nano - I like them that much. I wear them year-round in Alaska: for camping trips in the summer, as an everyday jacket in fall and spring, and as a layer under a shell in the winter. I prefer the look of the older-style diamond stitch to the newer box stitch, but maybe the newer one wears better?
Exactly what I wanted
I love that the Nano puff jacket is light weight. I purchased to wear as a layering piece under some of my other coats and on its own when not so cold. Its easy to layer and keeps your temperature very warm. I ordered the size S, my usual size in Patagonia and the fit is great with a little extra room for layering under.
I Heart the Nano Puff!
Ya’ll it’s not always cold here in Tx, but we have a few days that see degrees below 40 on occasion, and the Nano Puff plus a lightweight sweater keep me warm whether I’m walking my pup or spending a day out hiking. It’s great on “warmer” days to...anything below 70 degrees down here feels chilly. ;-) I love the color(navy), it’s packability (takin... Read Moreg it on an international trip soon), and the warmth it provides without being super bulky. The perfect go-to jacket as part of the always recommended three part layering system. :D
I've owned a couple of
I've owned a couple of these jackets in my lifetime. I absolutely love them and swear by the Patagonia brand. My favorite thing about this jacket is that it fits my wide shoulders. A lot of women's wear doesn't fit my shoulders. Even though there is not much stretch material in the jacket, it fits amazing.
Perfection in a puff
I purchased the nano puff originally in a M but exchanged for a L because I wanted to layer and enjoy the looser fit (I’m 5’9, 140lbs). The sleeves are perfectly long, love the inner chest pocket, and it’s so warm!!! I generally wear this for day to day activities in the Pacific Northwest, but recently wore it on a run when the temps dropped. The m... Read Moreauve/silver is a nice neutral color too.

Nano Puffs 4 Life!
I love Nano Puffs. I have various iterations of them and they are AWESOME, especially because dog hair doesn't stick to them...this is a great jacket! I wish Patagonia would consider shortening some of their jackets a bit -- zipped up, I find that the bottom is a little tight on my hips, but if I sized up any more, the jacket would be way too ... Read Morebig. And I have a long torso! I hate when the bottoms ride up a little bit and then poof out, making it look like you have a giant potbelly. Anyway, none of that will stop me from enjoying a great jacket that is warm and low-profile enough to still look professional in cold classrooms.
Well made and very warm
Superb quality and incredible warmth to weight/bulk ratio. I wear it frequently. Two reasons it didn't get an absolutely unqualified 5-stars--it's kind of a boxy cut, like it's a modified men's jacket, and the color selection for women is always a bit weird--how about some more plain old neutrals to mix with the latest season&#x...

Plus, it looks so sleek and nice.
This was my first time
This was my first time buying from Patagonia; I decided to try the brand because they offer size xxs. Though the fit was nice, I returned the jacket because it was incredibly thin and the collar was creased/stiff (not enough stuffing?)--I just didn't feel like the quality was in line with the price point.
Nothing more then a button down shirt. Very deceptive to call it a ‘jacket’. No use for it at all. Fashion maybe but living in Minnesota there is no time it would be useful as anything more then a shirt- nothing to it.
Hi Colleen, thanks for taking the time to write us a review! We're sorry to hear about the disappointment with the jacket. It's not the warmest jacket we offer so it's understandable that it wasn't warm enough for Minnesota winters.

I love how light it is and I love the fit. I was hoping for it to be a little warmer. Also, the collar is high on my neck, which is fine for when I have it zipped all the way up. But when I fold it down it doesn’t stay and is irritating. Hoping with time the zipper will be more flexible and stay put.
I was so disappointed in this jacket. I returned it the day I received it! It was remarkably smaller than I thought I ordered. I know different brands run differently but this was like a junior version. Went to a local store that carries Patagonia and the sales person also remarked that they run”at least two sizes smaller” than advertised. That is ... Read Morenot a good thing esp for women. So I wear a medium size jacket which still gives me room to wear a sweater under and I tried the XL on in the store and it was like a fitted jacket! And truthfully I am NOT buying an XL!

Hi Ellen! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're truly sorry to hear about the disappointment with the fit of the jacket. Feedback like this is crucial to improving products for future seasons so we'll pass this along to our design crew!
Great all-around jacket!
Love this coat -- not bulky at all for such a warm coat. Great for layering, very excited to use for this upcoming ski season. So far it has been great to travel with as it takes up very little space. Fits true to size -- I usually wear a Patagonia S and this provides enough room for a sweater underneath without getting tight.
Love how light and comfortable the jacket is. REALLY wish it was made to fit better in the hip area.

Love the jacket & color. The front zipper is WHITE The pocket zippers color match the coat.... which l prefer over White... Either / or, it looks like a mistake. As If- I had the front zipper replaced. :( Preferred all Zippers on one product to ALL be the same color.
We're glad to hear you like the jacket and appreciate the feedback on that zipper, Linda!
Great Alpine Piece

It’s my first jacket. Normally, I would purchase it fitted and in black. Instead, I chose a looser fit so I could wear a sweater or hoody with it and one with color to wear with casual pants.

We're sorry to hear the sleeves are too long for you! Altering their length will void the warranty of the jacket only if an issue arises because of said alteration. If, for example, the zipper or stitching fail, your jacket will still be covered by our warranty.
This jacket is fabulous! I ordered a Medium because my arms are very long. My typical size is 6. I'm 5'7 and all limbs so I am thrilled with the fit.

Us women don’t want to look like men, so why the horizontal, brick style quilting in the newer Women’s jackets? My only complaint is a fashion/ design issue, not a quality one. I am a true Nano lover, and I hope to always have a few in my closet. I’m 5’4”, 115 lbs, and the Small fits me well.
Good layer or fall coat
On sale, this was a great buy. It’s the perfect weight coat for a chilly fall day or to layer under shells since it’s a thinner coat. It’s good in the wind until about 20mph, but after that, I definitely needed something over it. The DWR finish repels mist, but not much more than that. I do wish it were a touch warmer and better in the wind, but fo... Read Morer 40 degrees and up, it’s good as a solo coat. It does fit a bit larger than my other Patagonia size smalls, but that works well if you layer a lot. The sleeves also run a bit long for me, but that’s something I love since I forget gloves a lot and love to pull my hands into the sleeves. For size reference, I’m 5’4, 125, with an athletic build and a size C chest. I have plenty of room to layer under and still use it as a liner for my rain coat or winter shells. I wouldn’t pay full price for this, but the sale price makes it worth it.
Ws Nano Puff Jacket
I own this jacket in several colors. I buy this jacket every year in a different color. This year I bought the light blue. I love this color! A must have if you love the Nano Puff Jacket and if you love blue. This is currently my favorite Patagonia Jacket. Super light, windproof, water resistant, durable, easy to care for. One thing I wish Patagoni... Read Morea would make the light blue (and other pretty colors) as a Nano Puff Jacket with a Hood. I own this jacket with a hood in several colors. However I noticed Patagonia doesn't make this jacket with a HOOD in pretty colors...the HOOD is only made in plain colors like grey, black, navy, white. I would love to have this jacket with a HOOD in light blue. I actually prefer this jacket with a HOOD. It's a lot more cozy, warmer, and useful. I like the feel of the HOOD on this jacket. I don't like it as much without a hood. I only buy this jacket without a hood because I like the pretty colors.

Just what I was hoping for
I was pleased with this jacket. The fit was great. I have long arms and always have trouble with sleeve length, but not with this coat. I love the cranberry color. Its a lightweight coat but I expect it to take me through most winter days. I keep my coats for years and I am sure that this one will be with me for a very long time.
Very nice fit and color, however I am sad that I noticed a small rip on the arm only after 2nd wear. I was not in the woods so I am not sure how it happened.

Perfect for not-so-cold weather
I use this layer around the house and when going out in not so cold weather. Not as warm as the down sweater, which means I need both; this one for when I want a little something to keep me warm or protect from the wind, the down sweater when I need something more. Love 'em both!
Love the jacket, sizing a bit off
I am in love with my two nano puff hoodies, so I thought I'd get the nano puff jacket. I like the jackets because I'm with horses a lot and the equine hair doesn't stick to it like a lot of fabrics.

Too small in the bust.
I ordered an XL. I love this fabric and technology. I really wish I could wear it, but I am busty (38DD) and it just wouldn't zip all the way up. Very disappointing.
We're really sorry this was too small. Please don't hesitate to [let us know](https://www.patagonia.com/customer-service.html) if you have any questions regarding our return process.
Great all purpose jacket
I have found this jacket to be very resourceful. I use it during the winter as and outer layer when I go out and I can use it under my ski jacket for extra warmth although I tend to use my Nano Puff vest for this more often. It is super light and unexpectively very warm. A must have staple to everyones wardrobe.

I love wearing this thing. I wish it was cold enough to wear it everyday 24/7. If there’s precipitation I will throw a waterproof shell on over it and be snug as a bug.

Love the Nano Puff Jacket!
I love this jacket. It is lightweight and folds up to take up no space but it warm. I have two in black (one had to be repaired and I couldn’t live without it in the meantime) and one in navy for summer. They are perfect paired with a Patagonia soft shell or by themselves, depending on the weather.
Good luck with the fit
I am petite in height, which does not work for L or XL. If I try a large, I can't zip if over my hips because it is too long and my hips are too big.

I returned the jacket. I purchased a small because I wanted to be able to fit a lightweight fleece or sweater underneath but the jacket was just too big.

This is almost a perfect synthetic jacket. The quality, fit, and style are great but the collar is problematic. It was oddly misshaped when new and I thought it would eventually straighten out with wear. This hasn't been the case...hopefully a future iteration of this jacket will have an improved collar.
Perfect for anywhere!
I bought this jacket a few years ago and still wear it today. I'm 5'6 and 120lbs. I mostly buy a size small in Patagonia items, but the xs fits fine with a short or long sleeve underneath. The stitching has torn in multiple places, but this is due to so much wear. I would highly recommend it though and it's perfect for everyday.

Absolutely love this jacket. It's as warm as a light down coat without the bulk. The shell material is awesome. My only complaint is that the threads on the inside sleeves snag on the zippers on the pockets. The frayed thread looks cheap. It especially shows because I bought the Birch white color. Only thing keeping from 5 stars.

This jacket was true to size. I generally wear a small, size 4 and ordered a small. The color choices were great.

I admit I was hesitant about this jacket. It is so lightweight that I didn’t think it would be warm enough. I was pleasantly surprised.

It’s fitted for a nice look, but still has enough stretch to it to wear over sweaters, etc. for daily use. (Note: I live in the Southeast where 20-30 degrees is “cold” to us, and this jacket keeps me warm in those temps. It has become my everyday winter coat.)

I'm more likely to put on a heavier jacket if I get cold in this, so it's perfect for my needs. I also appreciate the handwarmer pockets and interior storage that give the jacket a little more versatility without adding much bulk. Highly recommend for your "daily driver" during shoulder seasons!
I debated between this jacket and the down sweater. The nano-puff has a sleeker look, although it’s probably not as warm. I finally settled on this one and am glad I did.
