Funky Fit

Not impressed for the amount of money I paid for this jacket and it fits so wrong. Almost like it's a women's fit how tight it gets around the waist. Sad that I ordered it and now it will just sit in the closet until I find someone to give it to. Funny, too. I have several Patagonia garments and all of the XL's I own are usually too ...

Nano Puff Hoody

A little expensive but it works really well! Keeps you warm in cold California winter nights.

Husband loves it

Got it for the husband for casual wear and fishing trips in the winter. He loves it! He is 6 ft tall, 170 lbs, muscular build. Fits him well. Its light and super warm, rain and wind proof. Very happy with this purchase!

January 8, 2023


Only issue I see is with the stitching, I have 4 different nano puffs and they all have issues with square stitching getting snagged on things. My most recent one already has a few. I also recognize I put them through a lot more than most as I work on sailboats for a living.

Not very warm

Wore it outside one time in Colorado and i didnt think it was warm enough for the price, i returned to the store no questions asked very professional employees, the fit was tight bc i usually wear a medium and i ordered a large which fit well.

Snug Fit

You will not be able to wear anything heavy underneath this jacket. You really shouldn't have to. It is war between the temperature of 32-45.

Awesome coat!

Awesome coat! Runs a little tight under the arms as I am a bit broad in the shoulders. But other than that its tailer fit. No extra room with a small. But I use it as a layer so I don't want excess fabric.

The Go To Jacket

I have several jackets, but the two Nano Puffs I have can be used in many situations. They are warm, light, and shed wind and minor precip events. I have always believed the old saying - there is no such thing as bad weather, just not having the right equipment. My Nano Puffs are the right equipment.

Great Fit!

This jacket is lightweight but warm. I am 6'2" 175 lbs and I purchased the Medium size. The fit is great!

December 25, 2022

Best light jacket out there

This jacket has excellent proportions (for a fit person). Its surprising how such a light jacket that can pack down so well and still offer good warmth. This is my go to jacket for weather when its 40 to 60 degrees (f) out.

December 25, 2022

Resistant but still hanging cuff issues

And what I mean by cuff issues is my last jacket kept loosening the seam loops. I would say the friction is an issue, putting the jacket in and out but its not as loose as the previous version. Still a great jacket

Warm and light weight.

Sizing is a bit off. XS is good fit but runs short S is a good length but a bit baggy. As far as the jacket goes, keeps you pretty warm until 32 F

"Classic Navy" is NOT Classic Navy

I bought this jacket in the color described as "classic navy". I don't know what color it is but it is most certainly not navy (classic or not). It's more of a blueberry or royal kind of color. Why not call the color what it is?

Otherwise, you could also exchange the jacket for a different color option if you purchased it through our website.

New hood design is worthless

I bought this to replace a nano puff hoodie I bought in 2014. New hood design makes the new one unwearable. Can't zip jacket up all the way without feeling like I am choking. Bought it without trying on, because I assumed same size/same model would fit. So I suppose it's my mistake. But its still a poor design change.

Fit tweak?

Love the jacket. The arm holes are ever so slightly too high - for me - but otherwise the fit is great.

Perfect for fall weather

This is my Go To for the fall and spring. Im 5 foot 9 and weight 158lbs. The fit is perfect. I can wear a couple layers underneath to get the warmth level just right. Great for light hiking.

perfect for in between temps or season stretching

I purchased this for a winter travel trip in southern europe. I hits the sweet spot on many factors such as packabilty, warmth, and subtle/fashionable appearance. This layer works with a variety of layer options in order to cover a decent temperature range without taking up a large amount of space in my pack.

Love this product, please re-add "fun"colors

I had the "yellow" or the gold nano puff hooded for ~6-8 years and lost it just 2 weeks ago. I have done so many hikes with it and even went to Torres Del Paine. I wanted to look into rebuying this jacket, but its just these few colors. Please consider re-adding other more colorful colors

October 8, 2022

Light Weight but Very Warm

I was hesitant at first to go with a nano puff jacket as I read reviews that they run a bit large and they are priced considerably higher than other puffs but let me tell you that its worth every penny. While the jacket does run a bit large, you tend to forget about it when you wear it when the temps drop. The cinch cord at the hem helps keep the c...

This is easily my go to travel jacket and will be bringing this on every cold weather trip. One more thing, the company put forth a great message, not one where they just mention some stuff for great press but rather they are doing something about it. How can you not support that.

October 1, 2022

Light weight but just right amount of warmth

This was another nano puff purchase, as I have several variations of nano puff hoodie, jacket & vest. I really like this new color, smolder blue. Great products from Patagonia.

Light, warm, comfortable, beautiful

I love the fit and the warmth and the lightness of my nano puff hoodie - So much warmth in such a light package, easy to carry and so compact. These have been my favorite jacket to wear in cool or cold weather for many years. I liked the old colors better - they were more vibrant and bright and they made me feel happy when I put them on. I had a f... Read Moreire orange jacket that I loved and a Caribbean blue jacket that I loved especially for the colors. I only needed one jacket but I bought both of them because I love the colors so much. When I had a zipper go out Patagonia was wonderful in supporting the lifetime warranty and offering to fix or replace the jacket. I felt grateful to learn that Patagonia would take my old jacket and patch it and donate it to someone who could use it, rather than throwing it in a landfill. I am grateful for Patagonias commitment to the well-being of the planet and all of us. I found a dark blue among the latest color choices that I can live with and I still love the fit and the lightness.

Great Versatility

This is a fantastic jacket that is highly versatile. I use it for a wide range of temperatures. It packs tight and is a great layering piece.

The 11th Outdoor Essential Item

From California deserts to the Alaska tundra, and a few micro-breweries in-between, this jacket always travels with me. I use it as an outer layer or mid-layer under a rain shell in cooler temps. It's so lightweight, packable and easy to care for. I don't leave home without it.

August 25, 2022

Overall great

I love the nano puff series. This is the perfect weight to wear around and when youre adventuring, and is light enough to layer on the cold days

August 3, 2022

Best puffy out there!

This coat does the best when its worn with a simple dry fit t-shirt As a base layer. Its stays warm in all types of conditions and the hood is key!

June 29, 2022

The perfect piece of insulation

This is an ideal mid-weight piece of insulation, either as an outer piece in the summer or a middle piece in the winter. And the arms are ample for my long arms. My only regret is that the chest pocket is on the inside, and not on the outside.

Live in Texas always travel to Michigan year around, jacket is very packable. I use it as a light weight action/travel coat when change of climate, would recommend you only wear in 45 with no base layer. After that you feel small seeps of cold wind.

Hooded option was a wise move

Just a great jacket. I bought a large for layering. That wasn't necessary. Medium would have worked. I recommend the hooded version of the Nano Puff. It's superb.

Great Jacket but not durable at ALL

Ive had this jacket for months now. The fit is great and the warmth level is amazing for something so thin. My only gripe is that the jacket is not durable at all.

Nano Puff - Mondo Cool

My all time favorite jacket! Lightweight warmth with a hood that packs up compact. It layers well under outwear as well. And I love the quilted look.

Love the hi loft and nano jackets. Have several in different colors. I think stronger zippers would be helpful.

February 28, 2022

Good, But Could Be Better

I wear it all the time and really want to love this jacket, but there are some things that need improvement. Pros: The fit for me is spot on. It seems to have more of an athletic cut to it -- broader shoulders, room for my arms, and a slimmer fit through the waist. Which is great as I find many of Patagonia's clothing seem to be designed to ... Read Morefit a box. The jacket is plenty warm for my uses, light weight, and the hood fit is excellent. Cons: The stitching that covers the entire jacket snags way too easily . Especially on the jacket pocket zippers. The teeth are like little fishing hooks constantly catching and snagging on the stitching of the sleeves. I use the pockets often and prefer to leave them unzipped. This is problematic as my arms like to move while walking. The material over all is pretty delicate. It punctures quite easily -- So you'll have to navigate the dichotomy of weight vs. durability. Overall, I like the jacket. However, I'm thankful that I didn't pay full price for it -- I received a great discount . I'm confident I would not buy it at full price.

Its a great layering piece which makes it a great every day jacket.

Build quality wasnt as high as I would have hoped, but still great. The cuffs are starting to fray from wearing watches, and there are more than expected loose threading or insulation, nothing noticeable to others, but something I wouldnt expect. Would like to see a new cuffing material, and maybe a stronger threading, and potentially a different type of insulation, like wool, or a synthetic less likely to leave the fabric, even at the cost of some weight for the more casual hiker. Am in Northern California where costal winds often get above 20, and this is a very effective jacket in those conditions, especially with the hood. Pairs great with the R1 hoodie. Would recommend, as I havent found something comparable. I bought another puffy that was warmer, but rarely use it because it doesn't layer as well. The nano puff layers amazingly, because it can easily have multiple base layers underneath, or use as a mid layer when in really cold situations. Works great as the only layer two with a tee when in the upper 50s.

Just right!

This jacket is just right for a lightweight wind resistant cover. I can go in and out of my office and stay warm outside and yet not overheat inside. It also works well as a layer under other shells.

Honestly, it would be too snug if I were to size down. My... Read More only gripe about the jacket is the stitching from the arms snag on the zippers of the pocket. I noticed after a few wears, loose strands of stitching in the middle part of the arms. I think the solution for that would be one, keep your pocket zippers zipped or two, an upgrade to the zippers to use a no-show design to prevent the snag. Minus the snagging the jacket performs as it should. The loose stitching doesn't compromise the intended purpose of the jacket and can be fixed by making a few sewing adjustments. Overall its a great jacket that's wind and weather resistant and great for everyday wear.

Super Warm and light weight

Love the jacket!! It is really warm and not heavy . I am very happy with it!

Light but warm

Not very warm and durability is TERRIBLE

The company I work for purchased 10 of these jackets 3 years ago to celebrate the end of a project. The jacket is not very warm and I have quit wearing it at all because it is literally falling apart. I started sewing the spots where the fill would stick out but finally got to the point where it wasnt worth it. I would definitely not recommend this...

very packable, light weight.

Awesome top for BC skiing, start out cold and just drop in your pack as you warm. pockets could be slightly bigger to stuff gloves or acces with gloves.

Great light puffer

The nano puffer is a great option for chilly days when you dont need something very heavy. Excellent quality and fits true to size.

Quality craftsmanship, average design

The cut and design of this jacket didnt meet my expectations. In general the sizing aligned with other Patagonia products Ive bought (M), but it was tight in the chest, and the sleeves were too tight under the arms when I reached for anything.

a "must have" for me

Great coat that is warmer than it appears. I stick in my trad climbing pack for belaying in cold conditions. I had a 2019 version that was destroyed and I just replaced it with a Barn Red version. Take note that this year (2021-22) there is some orange mixed in to the red. You can see it in the website photos. Highly recommended.

I got this for my dad for Christmas and he has never worn a piece of clothing so much! He loves the fit, feel, and look so much

First Time Buyer

I purchased this jacket on my recent trip to Reno, NV as something that would help keep me warm in colder weather. The jacket is not bulky by any means and although I'm only about 5'9 and 155 lbs, the XL keeps me pretty cozy. Yes it is a little big and the L would probably have fit a bit better. But I do slightly prefer the bigger fit. Th...

The jacket I'll have for the rest of my life

I bought my Nano hoody in 2012 and it gets the most use out of anything in my closet. It has held up so well to years of wear, a car accident (thanks Worn Wear!), and more. It still keeps me warm and is still is super comfortable. I never thought I would cherish a piece of clothing so much!

Love Patagonia

Love it, will never buy any other brand Im a life time owner now.

Preferred Over Down Sweater

I went with the nano because of its superior water resistance when compared to the down sweater option. Good daily wear here in the soggy PNW. I layer with a fleece under for chillier days and as a midlayer under my torrentshell 3L when it is really dumping.

November 18, 2021

Thanks for the review, Robert! We do offer [down-insulated jackets](https://www.patagonia.com/shop/mens-down-jackets-vests), if you'd like to return or exchange. For skiing, you may appreciate having the synthetic insulation of the Nano Puff, as it remains warm even if it gets wet. Note that the Nano Air, Pack In series or Tough Puff Hoody will be slightly more breathable as well.

Most Versatile Jacket

I love that this jacket is so warm for how light it is. It doesnt take up any weight or room in a backpack and is surprisingly wind resistant. If there was a way to make it more water resistant without sacrificing any breath ability, thats the only small critique I could have. Great product

November 14, 2021

Not so warm

I expected it to provide some warmth but I could feel the chillness in even 45-degree weather. Very comfortable wear but not for cold temperatures Might work in early fall and late spring. Definitely not late fall and winter (even in Seattle temperatures)

November 19, 2021

Hey Krishnan, thanks for the feedback on our Nano Puff Hoody. Temperature rating is really hard for us to pinpoint since an individuals warmth is so subjective and varies from person to person. For this reason, we do not rate our gear in this way, however we're always happy to have a conversation and help you decide on what will work best for the conditions you're working with, your plans for the gear, and your own individual ability to retain warmth. It sounds like synthetic insulation isn't cutting it for you, which is totally okay because we have some awesome down options that are typically warmer. One that we would recommend checking out is our [Men's Hi-Loft Down Hoody](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-hi-loft-down-hoody/84902.html?dwvar_84902_color=OWBR&cgid=mens-jackets-vests).

Fits just like it should

My favorite!

Weather has been too warm to wear.

The fit is probably correct for the typical Avatar. However I'm 5'6" + and have a 43-44" chest and 32" waist. So if I size for my height, it binds in the chest and shoulders. If I size for my chest/ shoulders, I have some extra length, which is fine for reaching and stretching, and avoids cold gaps.

Pros: can be worn in many different environments, a durable stand alone, for a puffy (I have done some light climbing in it and it shows little to no wear and tear), well thought out pocket placement, good zipper pulls, and has the same tight fitting hood that my micro had. Cons: It doesn't have those two internal pockets that could be used to warm gloves (not sure what the technical name for them is). Also the stuff pocket being the chest pocket was a bit of a weird choice but still remains fully functional.
