Patagonia Men's Nano Puff® Hoody

True To Size
December 30, 2020

Great product - amazing warmth for convenient form factor

This hoodie is the perfect in-between thing to wear - not only does it feature great pockets and durable materials, the hoodie does an amazing job of retaining heat. More importantly, it does all of this while being incredibly light.

Perfect fit, ultra light and warm

Light and warm

I was totally against buying an expensive coat but I really like it. It was on sale and I get compliments all the time.

Swiss Army Knife equivalent of jackets

Loved my Patagonia down sweater / jacket but, it served me well and time to retire. Replaced with the Nano Puff and it was a great choice. A bit lighter than the down sweater but so far very suitable for many conditions. Light, compact, and warm. However, try on before you buy....

Excellent jacket

This jacket is great! It really cuts the wind. It is warmer than I expected but that is good!

I live in this jacket!

I have had several of these jackets over the past ten years. Needless to say I absolutely love them. Perfect for California late fall / winter / early spring. Even pull it out during those foggy cool evenings during the summer. No matter the season it always feels perfect and can be adjusted with base layers underneath. So cozy I end up wearing it ...

Packable warm and thin

Love the jacket. It packs down to a relatively small size which makes it easy to have with me in transitional temps. If I had one suggestion for this product it would be to include a way to roll up the hood into the collar.

December 10, 2020

Surprisingly Lightweight and Warm

The jacket weights next to nothing and insulates like you wouldnt believe! Its perfect for travel and it isnt bulky when sitting for a while commuting to work!

December 9, 2020

Very warm based on light weight

I love the jacket for its warmth and light weight. It is a great jacket for many activities. The only complaint is that Patagonia has made their jackets much smaller than how they were cut 10-15 years ago. I have been buying Patagonia clothes for the last 35 years. I use to buy a medium but now a large. I have talked to numerous Patagonia staff in ... Read Morethe past and they agree that the jacket are definitive smaller. My key question is why Patagonia has not told their customers that they have reduced there sizing of jackets. I still love the Patagonia products but I wished they were more up front with how they changed the sizing.

Love this jacket. Ive worn it working and worn it out to dinners and its great all around. Keeps you warm but also doesnt bake you when youre in the truck or inside.

November 30, 2020

Most always warm enough, and not too warm

I asked someone with this jacket why they loved it. The remark was something around how it always feels just right on cool days (here in California). I agree absolutely, and it is magical how it always feels just right.

November 29, 2020

Definitely worth it!!

I was skeptical at first because its so thin and light. But its currently 31 degrees outside Im not cold. It definitely keeps you warm. Glad I bought this

November 24, 2020

Awesome Jacket

This jacket is awesome! I appreciate the versatility and am pleased with its functionality.

November 23, 2020

Sizing is way off!

Great jacket but the size is way off! Purchased my regular size, medium, and it was too small, so I exchanged it for a large and it was too big.

Hello Ruben, we're truly sorry that neither the medium or large worked out. We appreciate every opportunity that will give us the chance to grow and that will help us improve our items. Thanks so much for your feedback! If you haven't returned the large yet and need [help](, don't hesitate to reach out to us.

Light, good for Fall or Spring

I am using this jacket in N. California fall weather. It fits well, is very light and keeps me warm. I would add an inside pocket.

November 18, 2020

As Advertised

I haven't really tested it yet. I live in San Diego and so far this year 60 F is cold but the fit is true and it's light and warm. Don't love the color (Andes Blue) but I got it on sale and it is different from what I usually wear. So it might become a winter staple for bike rides.

November 17, 2020

Great Lightweight Jacket

This is the first Patagonia jacket I have owned and I am now committed to purchasing all my future outdoor gear from Patagonia. Not only is it a great lightweight jacket that is warm and comfortable, the hood is more like a skullcap to prevent wind chill. I would recommend as a standard for all wardrobes.

November 17, 2020

The Ultimate insulation piece.

This is my go to casual insulation piece and it is great for the shoulder seasons as yoru only outer layer. For snow board I will use this, with a Silkweight underneath, down into the low 20's. The latest version has a softer and quieter face fabric. Boy do these things last, I have ones dating back 10 years that still hold up so well.

November 17, 2020

Top notch puff

Warm, comfortable, light, packable. This coat is great.

November 17, 2020

Warm and comfort.

I bought this for my son and he absolutely loves everything about it!

November 16, 2020

Wind and cool proof

Fits comfortably and flexible with movement. Cold wind does not seem to penetrate through. Have worn with shortsleeved shirt underneath on 40 degree days with 15 mph winds and remained warm. Breathes when perspiring moderately

November 16, 2020


so far very warm and comfortable.

November 16, 2020

Very warm considering how light weight.

Fits great, very comfortable. Good down to at least 40 degrees by itself.

November 15, 2020

Very light, super warm

This is my first Patagonia jacket as well as my first puff style jacket. Great coat, perfect fit. Has kept me warm on very blustery days with a T-shirt on underneath. If I had to change anything it would be to make the hood adjustable. Besides that, its been my new fav coat for 2020 so far

November 15, 2020

Perfect mid weight

I love the weight and warmth of this Nano Puff. The hood is a great addition to keep you comfortable and warm when you need just a little extra.

November 14, 2020

Super warm

Love it ! Is super warm super comfortable!!!! Not heavy like other jacket ! I do recommend this item

November 14, 2020

Light weight Warm

Well made. Keeps me warm.

November 14, 2020

Lightweight and warm

So far I really like the jacket, havent really put it through its paces yet as it has not gotten cold enough where I live(SoCal). Overall all fit is a true to size except for the sleeves, they are a bit on the long side.

November 14, 2020

Down jacket

This is a gift for my husband, he has a similar wt. down jacket but no hood. He really likes this jacket because it is longer, covers more, and of course the hood. Well see how it works in northern Michigan winters. He will probably need a windbreaker over it. Overall, he really likes your product.

November 14, 2020

Absolute Perfection

Despite already owning a (non hoody) nano puff, I couldnt resist the sale and ended up getting the hoody version. Its everything you could ask for in a lightweight jacket that keeps you warm when you need to be, and doesnt overheat you when you need to keep cool. This jacket is perfection personified.

November 13, 2020

Super lightweight

Great coat. Very light, but warm. Looks great.

November 12, 2020

Inconsistent sizing

As others have noted, the sizing is inconsistent. My Large Patagonia shell is enormous. My large Patagonia down sweater / jacket fit great. The Large nano fits OK but very snug across the chest.. Otherwise I like the jacket

November 10, 2020

Great All Around

Such a great jacket for lightweight warmth. Surprised by how well insulated its kept me.

November 10, 2020

Great Jacket

Just wore this for the first time hiking Mt Mitchell in NC and it was perfect. Couldn't be happier.

A great jacket transitioning from one season to the next or to wear on a mild winter day.

True multi-sport

True multi-sport jacket. Very good in many situations from cool as a jacket to very cold as an insulating layer underneath a shell.

November 8, 2020

Super Light and Looks Durable

The hoody is super light and soft inside. I haven't owned the hoody long enough to say this but so far it looks durable. Also, I haven't tested the hoody in a very cold environment but it seems to be quite warm.

November 8, 2020

Go to jacket

Once weather gets cold, Im pretty much wearing this jacket all the time. Light weight and packs small for hiking trips, for work I just put it under work shirt for lots of warmth without a heavy bulk (work in construction). Winter morning runs, I wear it while walking to warm up, put it in running vest when the running starts. This is my third one.... Read More

November 7, 2020

So thin yet so warm

Fits true to size. Wore this over a crew neck in 30 degree weather to hike with my dog for an hour and was legit sweaty by the end. This jacket seals in the heat. Rolls up into a very small package.

November 7, 2020

Best for me

Great feeling, fit, weight and warm

November 7, 2020

Warm jacket

Bought this jacket so I can stunt on them with the Patagucci and it turns out its super warm. Especially in mild Southern California weather. Oh well, I can feel bougie and be warm at the same time!

November 6, 2020

Must have

Not as warm as same weight of 880 down but close.

November 6, 2020

Best jacket!

I pretty much love everything about this jacket. It's the perfect medium weight, and is super warm (on those 30 degree walks in the am w/ the dog). It will be the perfect mid layer for the ski season this year!

November 3, 2020


Bought this for my dad, he loved it! Super versatile, packs away small, and is super warm. Want one for myself now! I also LOVE the sustainability aspect, it's why i only shop at patagonia for gear like this.

Quality product

This piece is a great mid layer for skiing, a great outer layer for casual wear and is great (water repellent) for fishing. Fantastic warmth and if you layer accordingly, it works great in any temperature. Super light weight and it packs into itself which is a cool feature. But even with all that, the real highlight is when I got this jacket, about... Read More 3 days later I got bit by a dog who jumped up over a fence. The jacket tore obviously so I called Patagonia and within a minute they just sent me a new one no questions asked. They have amazing customer service!! That alone is worth the price point not to mention that if something gets damaged during the life of the jacket they repair it for free! Any other brand and I would have to buy a new one or pay for repair. That right there is worth the price point not to mention how amazing the actual jacket is. The pockets warm your hands up almost immediately and are pretty deep for storage. This jacket also makes wind insignificant. The other amazing thing about this primaloft tech is that even if this jacket gets completely submerged under water it will still retain 98 percent of your body heat and keep you warm. Even tho the jacket is comfortable stand alone from 40-60 degrees (rough estimate) you can go way colder than that if you layer underneath. I live in Utah so I find myself stuck in the 15-30 degree range frequently and all I have to do is wear a fleece underneath and possibly a hoodie. With that I dont feel anything. I also have used this jacket for ice fishing it performs incredibly. Plus you can just throw this thing in the wash where down you cant. The pull string around the waist also comes in handy from time to time when its super cold and you need the heat to get trapped. 5 stars on this jacket 100 % Ill never not own one again because it changed my life!

October 26, 2020

Warm, lightweight, and comfortable

A highly versatile jacket that lives up to its reputation! One of Patagonia's best products. Tougher than the Micro Puff Hoody, more abrasion and snag resistant, just as warm, and weighs only a few ounces more.

October 22, 2020

Awesome jacket but had stitching issues.

I've owned two Patagonia Nano Puff jackets. I loved my first one so much I bought the hoody version to compliment my collection. This jacket is light weight yet provides ample warmth for shoulder seasons while remaining breathable and unobtrusive. Unfortunately, the second one I purchased had the stitching on the elastic wrist-cuff unravel an...

a big change on the internal lining, I miss the internal big stuff pocket, its now a zippered pocket, with a different lining and not that easy to get bulky items in or out, ie gloves. also mine arrived without the stuff-sack with carabiner clip in loop so chasing that up

Best Jacket Ever!!!

Fits perfect. The ultimate jacket for thru-hiking--lightweight, packable, warm and unlike down it can get wet. And it is stylish!

Great Lightweight way to Stay WARM

These are very lightweight jackets that can be worn under a water resistant windproof shell when needed. Real handy to have with you when it could get cold!

Simple hooded jacket is light stuffable goes anywhere. Not a a below zero jacket so wear it under a parka. Doesnt need bells and whistles fine as it is.

Perfect everyday jacket

I bought a size large but a medium would work to. I use this as an everyday wear for the outdoors with room for a loose layer underneath. Just the right length, features and warmth.

Temperate, some durability issues

Love this jacket. I like he in spokane WA, it's perfect for transitional seasons, not warm enough for deep winter unless I'm cross country skiing.

Im never surprised at how warm these jackets keep me since my brother in law made me discover it in the middle of winter in Oklahoma. Theyre so light weight and yet provide so much warmth. Easy to pack since they can be folded into a small ball. I use it for casual wearing around town and when I hike.

Versatile and light weight

I've owned an older down puffy Patagonia jacket for years. I opted for the NanoPuff Hoody for the hood. I've found that on Spring days, this jacket is much more versatile than my older down jacket.

Warm but not very durable

This jacket fits pretty good, I found that the arm lengths are a great size but the jacket is a little too short. Because of the insulation, I like that it can keep me warm in wet and cold weather. Another problem I was having was that the threads keep getting snagged on random things.

April 30, 2020

Just right

Warm, comfortable, practical, and stylish, the Nano Puff Hoody is excellent. It is ideal for a range of temperatures and for a variety of activities, from strolling city streets to hiking mountains. The medium size is perfect for my 5'10", 160-pound frame.

A Review on Color

So, as most people know, this is a great lightweight coat. It performs as described and is just the layer and outer layer I’ve needed.

The warm lightweight fabric works great in Colorado and the hoody comes in handy for those unpredictable wind gusts.

December 19, 2019

This is the 4th Patagonia

This is the 4th Patagonia nano puff product I’ve purchased and they never disappoint.

Best all around jacket you could ever own

This jacket is perfect for all year round weather. I live in Minnesota where our seasons are constantly changing and this jacket provides the perfect mix of weight, comfort, and protection. It's light enough to wear when its 50 degrees and you wont get hot, but heavy enough to wear as an outer shell in below zero temps that will keep you warm.... Read More Scuba hood is also a nice feature. I am 6' 2" and 210lbs and the L is perfect. I've had the Forge Grey for 3 years now and its still in great shape

December 18, 2019

Great jacket!

The fit is nice, I got a Lg and I am 5'10" and 180lbs. It seems to be really warm and blocks wind pretty well from what I have experienced. Can be worn in temps as high as upper 50s to mid 30s and I still stay comfortable. It stuffs in its interior chest packet, but it is a sung fit. I was worried about messing up the zipper or pinching t... Read Morehe fabric. I would like to see a sturdier zipper in the front. The zipper on it seems fine but kinda seems dainty compared to other jackets and coats I normally use. I will defiantly be using this jacket as my daily around town wear and as insulating layer under my work coat.

First, the disappointments: it's not

First, the disappointments: it's not as warm as I had expected and it's very tight around my (ahem) mature butt. That said, the hood is gently elasticized and so is snug and reasonable warm even in breeze. The jacket is water resistant - it kept moisture out during a downpour. It is well designed with a collar that seals well, zips for th... Read Moree pockets, and an interior zip pocket located high to keep sunglasses warm.

Very warm and stylish

Really warm

This jacket is great for cold and windy days, and the hood works to keep wind out of your neck and ears. It fit a little large on me

December 15, 2019

Go to cool weather jacket

This is my second nano puff. This jacket travels with me almost all year, offering cold weather warmth, wind protection and breathable enough for cool mornings and evening. Also great on planes. The trim fit encourages layering, and the hood is fits well without draw strings. It packs down, so I throw it in my pack along with my Houdini. The 12 ye...

December 14, 2019

Great item! Size is slightly

Great item! Size is slightly big for my body (asian), esp the sleeve length. But I guess it boils down on your preference on how snug you want the jacket to be.

December 14, 2019

Great hoody

Kept me warm in 32 degree temp.

December 14, 2019

Very light and super warm

I walked around city streets when it was below 32. No longer need a heavy winter coat. The hood was a big plus. It runs large and replaced M with S which fits me perfectly (5”11).

December 14, 2019

Perfect light warming winter coat

It just worked as advertised. Light weight Water repellent Very well insulated I m happy with my purchase:)

December 13, 2019

Baggy fit

I’m an averaged size person and this jacket had a very loose fit. A slim fit option would be appreciated.

Response from Patagonia
January 2, 2020

Sorry you were disappointed by the fit of this jacket. You might prefer the "slim" fit of the [Nano-Air]( series. It looks like you already [returned]( it, but we're always happy to help facilitate returns and exchanges to a Patagonia-owned store or to our main service center so don't hesitate to [reach out]( to us.

December 13, 2019

Great Jacket!

Went to the XS because the sleeve length was a little long on the S. I’m 5’9 and about 145lbs. Jacket is warm and looks great! Looks good if you’re into the whole slim fit style as well.

December 13, 2019

Nanopuff Hoody remains a staple

This is my 3rd time purchasing this offering from Patgonia (1st one got stained, 2nd one got lost - otherwise they would still be going!). Continues to be an essential item for Northwest living, as a layer or standalone jacket.

December 13, 2019

A very sturdy jacket

This jacket is awesome for cold activity. I paired this with the micro D snap-T fleece and it made the perfect cold hike combo. Both regulate my heat, keeping me from peeling layers off. If I'm using this as an everyday jacket I pair it with a synchilla snap or hoodie and it works great. I wouldn't count on this being a winter coat by its... Read Moreelf. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is due to the left hand zipper pocket. The stitching on my left arm keeps getting snagged on the left hand zipper when it's unzipped. After owning it for about a week I've noticed two small stitchings are already pulled and broken. It's not really ruining b the jacket, just a little annoying.

Perfect for Bay Area weather.

Perfect for Bay Area weather.

December 13, 2019

Another great fall/spring Jacket

Perfect for those days before snow falls. It doesn't take much to add a layer for added warmth. This o e I don't recommend for heavy work or trails, as it may get snagged easily on a branch, ect, and get a snag. Otherwise a great jacket. I'm 5'5", and a gym rat, and the Medium fits perfect.

December 12, 2019

Good lightweight jacket

Purchased for my teenage son. He’s a athlete and prefer hoodie in cold weather.

December 11, 2019

Nano Puff with Hood

Gave as an early Christmas gift for my husband because it rained and got chilly in California weeks before Christmas. He loved the hood feature, it kept in place and kept him warm and dry with very minimal bulk. First micro with hood, and other 2 in different colors. Worth every purchase!

Everything you’d expect from Patagonia !

Excellent Quality - As Usual

I've wanted a Nano-Puff hoody for a while, and this jacket has certainly lived up to my expectations.

November 21, 2019

Excellent Fit & Great Mobility

I was pleasantly surprised on how much mobility I had in my arms without any uncomfortable binding or pinching of fabric.

November 20, 2019


Ive worn this skiing, fishing, to the office and on the train. It does everything. If I only had one jacket this would be it.

November 20, 2019

Good fit on its own

Sizing is off

Sizing has never been an issue before and I have been in Patagonia gear for 10 years. I was hesitiant to get rid of my Dark Space color minimalist Down jacket for this exact issue. I've now been back and forth between the XS and SM in the micro and nano puff and neither seem to work. In the small, Sleeves are way too long, and the body is huge... Read More, and the xs is way to small with sleeves only being an inch long. It is a bummer as I am now stuck with XS Nano down because I need something for work, and play but it is not ideal. Please let me know if there will be any design changes in the near future, or if this is now becoming a common issue. Amongst myself, and our SAR team, it seems all too common as of late.

November 19, 2019

Buy this so you aren’t jealous of mine

Fantastic garment. Patagonia stuff always is. I love this hoody because it’s so light but incredibly warm. Takes up practically zero space. Also love the under helmet hood design, which works super great to keep you warm when riding or doing whatever one might do with a helmet on. Nice work as usual, Patagonia.

November 18, 2019

1st Patagonia Ever!

My recently got the Nano Puff Hoody and it is congruently my 1st product from Patagonia. Needless to say, I am impressed. It is the perfect medium between wearing a light sweater and a heavy, bulky winter jacket! Definitely would recommend!

November 18, 2019


What a great mid-weight jacket. The best thing thus far is how quickly you it dries. I was deluged with rain; less than five minutes later, poof, it was dry. The quality is fantastic.

My fiancé is on her second nano puff, and she’s been raving about it for years. I finally saw one on sale and got mine. It’s my every day jacket now in the Pacific Northwest winter.

November 16, 2019

Great jacket

Well made! Coupled with Cloud ridge jacket to cut the wind, this jacket works great to retain warmth. Zippers and seams all seem strong. Gonna rock this jacket till it crawls off of me lol! Great Job Patagonia

November 15, 2019


I've waited 2 years to buy this jacket. I wish that I hadn't. Its light weight but fantastically warm. I told my wife that if soft chocolate chip cookies were a jacket, they would be this jacket. You can wear a tee shirt and this coat in the cold and you are completely warm. It looks awesome too.

November 14, 2019

Had buyer's remorse until I received jacket.

I found this jacket for $100 off and decided to give it a shot. It's super light, but feels like wearing a warm blanket. I love it!

November 13, 2019

Nano Puffs Rule!

This is my fifth Nano Puff. I wanted to get one with a hood, hence this addition. Nano Puff's cool colors, a fit that's perfect for me and it's light weight make it the perfect coat for me. Sure glad I got it!

November 12, 2019

The Most Delightful Synthetic Joey Pouch Ever Made!!!

I bought this jacket because I am a college student who must make a brisk quest to his classes each morning across an entire college campus. I am a huge fan of Patagonia products in general because they are deluxe quality and environmentally aware. So I decided to nab this Nano Puff Hoodie Jacket. I had high expectations that were beyond exploded b... Read Morey the shear awesomeness of this jacket. It is super light weight, but has the warmth of a million suns harnessed inside it. I wore a short-sleeved shirt and the jacket on top and I was able to walk around campus in wind chills of 20 degrees F. This jacket is my favorite jacket I have ever owned! Please do your self a huge solid and snag one of these homies. They are a bit expensive, but once you wear one, you will realize that the price is a mere formality. Every time I wear this jacket, I am hugged by a synthetic joey pouch. Incredible!

This is the second patagonia nano puff jacket I have purchased and you can not beat the weight to warmth ration.

The EDC Jacket

The men’s nano puff has proven to be the every day carry jacket. No matter where I’m going, whether it be in to the city or into the mountains, I always take a nano puff. The versatile jacket works in a wide range of temperatures to keep you warm and cozy. Use it alone or layer up under your favorite hard-shell. Highly recommend this jacket.

My hubby is always feeling cold outside, so I got this jacket and he said it works very well and he loves it.

Much more my speed

I originally purchased the Micro puff, and although it was a nice jacket it was just two light and not as warm as I wanted/needed.

Nice light jacket

This seems like a nice light jacket, but I returned it for the Macro puff jacket. I didn’t like the shiny and lighter material . It felt like wearing a trash bag.

November 10, 2019


I wish I found sooner! I work in temps as low as -30 degrees and I use this as a mid layer. This stops the wind completely!

Almost Perfect

As other reviews have mentioned, if you're in the 5'10" / 34" waist neighborhood with an athletic build, Patagonia really doesn't have a size for you. This jacket is too tight in the chest and makes the hood almost unusable. At the same time the body of the jacket fits well while the sleeves are almost too long. A size up w...

This is one of my favorite jackets for.....everything. It's rugged enough for field use, refined enough for a night out, and versatile enough to be a no-nonsense travel companion.

Sleeves Too Short

I have two of these now: bright orange for hunting season, and a blue Nano Puff for other times. Like all of Patagonia's jackets, the sleeves run a bit short. I'm 6'1" and this jacket would be perfect if it was a little longer in the sleeves and body.

great jacket to have in

great jacket to have in cold weather. I really love how light, warm, and compact this jacket is. Normally Patagonia gear fits a size bigger but this jacket did not run big. IM 6'1 194 ibs. and the large fits like a large. i usually get XL in other brands

Very lightweight and packable

I purchased the Nano Puff Hoody to take on an Alaska / Pacific coast cruise in September because this unit packs down to a very small size. I hope it proves to be warm enough; it is thinner than I expected but appears to be of very high quality. Here's hoping for the best.

Nano Puff Hoody

This hoody is the bomb. It's a great stand alone hoody but it's light enough to layer under a raincoat or shell. Super light weight and awesomely warm. It packs down to a very small package.

Nano Puff Hoody

Easily the most versatile coat I've purchased. I live in Minnesota and I could be comfortable in this anywhere from 20 - 60 degrees F. Packs down nicely too.

Nano Puff Hoodie

I must say I was skeptical of the performance ability of this jacket. After 3 months I wear this jacket every day. Windproof, just like it says. Warm, just like it says. Packable, just like it says. I have replaced 3 jackets with one. Perfect for mountain biking, I can pack it away in my hydration pack, wear after and evening ride, wear it in the o...

Now there is no need to carry a beanie for under the helmet on cold rides, criusing the the store or the bar at night on your bike, I actually love this feature. Needless to say I'm impressed at the versatility of this jacket. It has become a staple in my life in a short period of time. Sizing is right in line. 180lbs 5'11" With +3" Arms, I went with a Large. Medium seemed a little too restrictive and the sleeves too short. Happy trails!

Almost perfect!

I love the fit of this jacket -- slim, but because of the puffy material still feels like it has space to comfortably squeeze a flannel and a sweater underneath for those chilly nights. I love that it packs down for easy storage, and love that the hood can fit under my helmet when bike riding. my only complain is when zipped all the way up and NOT ...

Nanopuff jacket hoodie

Hi. Love the jacket but one design consideration for the hoodie version would be to figure out a way to have it zip up without the top of the zip being so tight around the chin. I like the hoody version but wand the comfort of the non hoody version when zipped.

Thinly wrapped in warmth

The Nano puff hoody is so thin and so warm. I wear it on its own and as a mid layer under my shell without restricting my movement. I am very pleased with my purchase .

April 9, 2019

Wish neck was looser

I enjoy this jacket as a mid weight piece but wish the neck was a bit looser for layering over other clothes. It could pair really nicely with the nano air since that fit is slimmer but is too light around the neck to be comfortable.

The perfect sweater

I bought my first Nano Puff in 2009. Since then that jacket has been rock climbing, running, camping, sleeping, to the brewery, and beyond. It accompanied me on every road trip I made for over ten years and never let me down. The ripstop material took on an extremely soft hand and the zippers were effortlessly smooth (unless there was whisky spille... Read Mored on the teeth by a careless girlfriend). Even then it always washed out clean. I can't say enough good things about my nano puff and it is weird that I am finally replacing it. The newer jacket seems warmer but everything else is shaping up to be the exact same. Bravo on the recycled content, Patagucci.

Nano Puff Hoody- Excellent

I've loved my NP howdy for several years, and have worn it for virtually everything, including high energy activity in cold weather as a part of a layer system, for outdoor work, plenty of travel, and down to to everyday use in moderate temps in place of a sweatshirt type hoody. It has withstood a few washings, and I pretty much abused it in e... Read Morevery way possible. It held up really well until the main zipper finally gave out. .I got like 4 or 5 solid years out of it tho and that's hard use. I'm absolutely buying another one tho I wish they still had em in red. BUT first, I might send one back to see if they can replace the zipper! Let's face it, at some point these fine-tooth zippers are bound to fail. Can't fault Patagonia for this, it simply is a fact of zipper life. Mine has a couple minor tears but no holes, remarkable considering what Ive put it through. A person at one of the Patagonia stores gave me some clear fabric tape to use as a "bandaid" until I could get the tears replaced, and THAT has made it thru this entire winter!

Throughout word travels through Spain, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, all across the states this is my goto jacket! I'm 6'1, 175 lbs and a large fits perfectly. This jacket is great throughout all weather from a cool breeze to fridged winds of winter, throw a sweatshirt on underneath and its perfect for single digit temperatures.

January 13, 2019


This jacket blows my mind every time i put it on. I'm used to wearing heavier coats that are usually very bulky, but keep me warm. When I bought this and felt it, I was skeptical how it would keep me warm due to it's thin feel and overall light weight. After a few trips wearing it, it's hands down my warmest coat. I love that I can w... Read Moreear it with just a t shirt on in most situations and it still keeps me warm. Once i take it off, I can instantly feel my body cool down. Very impressed! Only gripe I would have, is the collar rubs against my neck in a weird way, but not a huge deal.

Great addition to the pack & the wardrobe

Love this thing. It's a great addition to my layering system and also makes for a great casual piece. I find it's my go-to for walking the dogs and quick runs to the store. It keeps me warm with no physical exertion with a t-shirt underneath into the 50's, and it's good in the 40's with a long sleeve base layer. Once it dip... Read Mores into the 30's I either need to pair with a baselayer and my R1 fleece underneath, or opt for my Patagonia down sweater instead. It's not the most breathable piece, so it has to get really cold for me to wear while doing physical activity. Could probably keep you warm over a baselayer in single digits if you're hiking up a mountain. It's definitely not a real stand-alone cold weather piece, though, but it's lightweight, crazy comfortable, stylish, extremely packable, and easy to forget you're even wearing. In Virginia, it's good for use as my primary layer for warmth while backpacking about 8 months out of the year. I've also used it as a mid-layer snowboarding with just a baselayer and shell into temps just below freezing. Another timeless piece from Patagonia! In terms of fit, it's pretty standard of Patagonia. I'm 5' 10" and 160lbs with hardly any body fat. I wear a Small in several brands because I like my clothes to be form-fitting, but in Patagonia I always have to buy a Medium because a small is just too tight and restricting. Their Medium is just a little bigger than I prefer, but I usually end up loving the fit once I get familiar with the form & function of each item. The nanopuff is no exception to that, and a Medium is definitely the right size for me. The arms aren't long enough to bunch, but they do keep my wrists covered even when reaching. It lands on the right spot on my waste, and I have enough room to layer what I need underneath or over top of it. If you're looking for a mid-layer that can handle the 40 - 60 degree range, and dip even lower with some added layering or physical activity, then this one is definitely hard to beat. If you're looking for a winter coat, though, I would suggest going for something a little bulkier.

Get what you pay for.

I usually would never spend this much on a jacket, but I bought this for several good reasons after trying it on in Patagonia Boulder. 1. It’s sharp, cut well for my body (5’10, 185 fit with broad shoulders / narrow waist) 2. It’s deceptively warm 3. It’s extremely light and packable into the inner pocket (this is mainly what I was shopping for, ... Read Moresince I travel a lot for work and needed something packable, light and low profile) 4. It’s respectably sustainable using recycled material. A couple of critiques I’ll echo here. 1. The ‘cinch line’ is awkwardly placed above my right jean/pants pocket. It would be nice if it either could tuck into some ‘cinch line garage’ or be placed closer to the front or back. 2. The sleeves are pretty long. I have ape like arms already and there is about 1/2” of material bunched at the cuff.

Best hoodie on the market

I have owned the non-hooded version of this for 4+ years and have loved it, but needed a thermal hoodie so shopped around and read reviews, decided on this one. After three weeks of pacific northwest winter weather I have already used it steelheading, snowboarding, hiking, and walking the dog, and couldnt be happier. Perfect blend of thickness and ... Read Moreweight, and the cut fits me perfect. I could probably get by with a medium bought a large, so could still layer under it for really cold weather but not havent needed to yet. It's great to know that Patagonia stands behind everything so well too - worth the premium price in my opinion for a piece of gear i know i will use for 10+ years.

Would hate to be without it

Had this jacket for 4 years. I’m 5’-11” and 180 pounds and the large fits perfect. Loose enough to fit a layer underneath and snugg enough to not look baggy. Simply put I have this jacket on hand at all times for when I start to get cold. The instant wind blocking and insulation make it an amazingly versatile jacket. Depending on how cold or wet it... Read More is outside I use this as a stand alone or as part of my layering underneath a waterproof shell. Have used it all seasons for work, hunting and fishing and it has always comes through. I would not recommend beating the brush with this thing in the backcountry as it will get torn to shreds but the thin nylon shell is the reason it is so light. Have also tried the micropuff and though it appears to be a slightly warmer jacket I found it to be a little frumpy on the fit and more bulky which did not make it as versatile with layering. I returned it for a nanopuff. Though it’s a pricy jacket I just waited for a sale. Overall the nanopuff is my favorite jacket of all time. And you can’t beat Patagonia customer service!

Awesome Jacket with one major issue - Long Term Review

Fantastic Jacket, I have owned the jacket since January of 2016 and it has held up fantastically. Warm and well fitted it is my go to jacket when the weather requires it.

Love it!!!

Love it, Fits super nice the only problem is that the sleeves are to long, but is so warn and pretty comfy in cold days, perfect to wear with anything!

June 21, 2018

Size matters

While being a great jacket,looks & built,I think that the M size is too tight. Yeah,the jacket runs on the short side but also too tight under the arms on the side of the body. Size L is dis-proportionally bigger and (in my case) just looked like a hanging sack. Had to return it. My rating reflects mainly that.

May 12, 2018

Fits perfect and love the packability

Bought this jacket a couple weeks ago and its been great to throw on for belaying in the shade,blocks the wind really well and is super warm. Also great for walking the dog and low exertion exercises or when its really cold and you want to warm up quick,I am 5'6 165lbs and it fits perfect. Packs down really small which is great.

I love this jacket!

I have worn this jacket all winter and it has performed awesomely. It's light weight,keeps me warm,fits good,and looks good.

Great every-day jacket.

Big fan thus far. Works exactly as advertised. No problems with the stitching ... which I was worried about,based on other reviews. Patagonia products are on the edge of what I can regularly afford,but it's nice to know that the extra money goes towards quality and sustainability.

Nano puff grew larger

I love the nano puff. This is my third one. I am using it essentially year round,from summer hikes to resort skiing.

Read Moreelf and not take up that much space. I have worn it in the rain,and although it isn't waterproof,it's water resistant,so it will get soaked and you just have to let it dry out after. It does a good job of keeping me warm (although for me I don't get cold easily),and usually maybe under 45F I start to feel a little cold in this,and it's worse if it's cold windy,although it's not really breathable so I sweat in it,but it does block the wind well. While coming back to Patagonia's site hunting the deals,I realize this jacket basically ticks all the boxes I was looking for in a jacket,except for the fact that it's not built for the rain,but as an overall all around it's legit!

I have two other Patagonia products,a down sweater,and down vest,and neither have this issue and are 3 years old. I think that his jackets threading is just defective in my case.

Too bad it didn't fit

I think this is an excellent jacket. I would have kept it if it had fit me better. I'm 5'-10" and 185 pounds. A Large jacket fit in the chest and overall length,but was snug in the stomach. I thought about trying an XL,but the sleeves were already about an inch too long.

The most useful jacket I own

This is a truly killer piece for anyone who lives an adventurous lifestyle. It sheds light rain,snow and wind like a champ. It will still insulate when it is soaking wet. You can wash it on a normal cycle just like any other piece of clothing. These technical features are nothing too special,but combined they make for a jacket that is incredibly ... Read Moredurable,warm,and useful. I have worn this jacket for everything. Daily use? Yep. Unexpected bivys on summer alpine climbs? Easy. Warm midlayer for a below zero ski day? Of course. Replace the water pump from your pickup on the side of the road in freezing rain? Done that. The one I own is a few years old,and except the more eco-friendly material improvement that Patagonia made last year,there are no differences. I have patched the arm,fixed the zipper,and re-applied the DWR finish (all courtesy of my local Patagonia store) and the jacket is still my daily driver,whether I am headed to work,or on a mountain adventure,I reach for this jacket almost every day. This isn't the warmest jacket you can buy,or the lightest,or the most weather resistant. But man,doesn't this jacket just strike the perfect balance?

December 16, 2016

Some recommendations

This is an excellent jacket - one of the best I've ever owned. I live in Estes Park,Colorado,and this is the outerwear of choice for almost every day (-15 and blowing snow calls for heavy artillery). Two suggestions,though. 1. The cable tightener loop on the lower right hand hem invariably catches on my knife clip. I normally carry a knife in... Read More my right pants pocket,which is held in place by a snap clip on the pocket lip. The cable clip catches it almost every time I wear the coat. Suggest you consider repositioning it - perhaps closer to the zipper. 2. When I got the coat,I said to myself,I am going to rip this material. And I did (have had it less than two months). The wind (we get some big wind up here) blew a fence gate into my sleeve and made a small puncture in the outer shell. Not bad,but the insulation is exposed,and this is not going to improve with time. So I called your Customer Support (Alex - great job - who recommended I write this review),and he referred me to Tenacious Tape,but advised that I was probably not going to match the color. Suggest you have Tenacious Tape,or somebody,make repair tape in the colors of your products. You should probably recommend customers get a roll when they buy this jacket. The material is going to tear. Thanks,and my compliments on your company and your products. In particular,your Black Friday contributions to environmental organizations is highly commendable. Merry Christmas, John Massie

Great Insulating Layer

I already own a Patagonia nano puff jacket from a few years ago that I love and use extensively around town as well as an insulating layer when I'm fishing,hunting or camping. I wanted a jacket with a hood and since my nano puff jacket worked so well for me,the hoody was a no brainer. What I love about the nano-puff series of jackets is that t... Read Morehey excel in wet environments. Unfortunately,I've put to the test primaloft gold's ability to insulate even when wet and it really does retain it's warmth exactly like it claims. When dry it's also extremely warm and it's mind blowing how warm these jackets are for how lightweight they are. They also breath fairly well when the sun gets out and it starts to warm up. I wear this fairly often as a stand alone jacket but it isn't the best at blocking wind so I mostly use it as an insulating piece and I think this is where it really shines. The hood is also really great and I especially like it bc I can keep a hat and sunglasses on with it without being uncomfortable like I would with a beanie. My main complaint about the jacket is the sizing. My aforementioned nano puff jacket from a few seasons ago is a medium,so naturally when I order this hoody,I got the same size. But this season's medium appears to have changed and the medium fits very tight in the shoulders,chest and armpit region. Now I like my insulating pieces to be a little more form fitting however I was afraid the constricted feeling of the medium would interfere with my casting motion and even worse it felt like I could tear the jacket a la Tommy Boy fat guy in a little coat. I loved the way it fit through the waist and the sleeve length was perfect but I had to return it for a large. The large is great in the shoulders and chest but the waist is more billowy than I like. For reference,I'm 6'1" (6'2" on a good day) 195lbs with what I consider an athletic build (i.e. broad shoulders narrowish hips) and wear 16.5" x 36" tailored or slim fit dress shirts. Another thing with the jacket is the shell material isn't all that durable. I knew this before buying bc of my old nano puff so I don't know if it's a complaint but just an FYI. The shell is nice and lightweight but it comes at the cost of durability and if you're hard on your gear like I am,you will get tears or burns. I keep tenacious tape handy to patch up the rips and tears when they happen to limit fill loss.

lightweight but not warm enough for N.E. winter

I told the sales staff at Patagonia that I needed a jacket for winter cycling in Boston and they recommended this nano puff hoody because it's wind and water resistant. The coat does pretty well considering how lightweight it is,however it is not warm enough for winter in the northeast. Maybe if it is combined with a base layer and outer layer... Read More,but if you wear the nano puff alone,you start to get a little chilly at or below about 40 degrees. I wish Patagonia had a synthetic or down jacket in between the nano puff and the Fritz Roy (which is overkill for my purposes) but unfortunately the only alternative appears to be using multiple layers. I was really hoping this jacket would work out,since it's nice-looking and well-made and has a pretty good hood,but unfortunately it's just not warm enough for winter.

Ok so finally got to try this sucker out. So today was 50 n with a 20mph wind so with only my R1 underneath we ventured out and can honestly say was very toasty which surprised me. I'd say ud be ok with tempts into the high 30s maybe 40s with a base layer .

Decent,lightweight hoody.

The XL is true to size but there's barely enough room to wear a midweight fleece underneath. I'm 6' of average build with broad shoulders and XL fits relatively well. Bought this on sale in Underwater Blue [teal] and it looks nice. Autumn temps have begun to fall into the 50s and this jacket is acceptable to keep you warm though it&#... Read Morex27;s better to wear a fleece underneath and to keep moving. You'll need something warmer underneath and a shell on top if you want to keep warmer. It's very lightweight and it just blocks out light breezes. Will have to see later how this jacket handles the colder temps late in the fall to early winter. Will expect to wear to something underneath or above it for better warmth. The hood fits well without any drawcords but really needs a cinchcord to pull the hoodtop back and it needs a built-in hood visor. The sleeves really need some thumbholes at the end which some other jackets have which pulls the sleeves over the wrist further for more warmth protection. The elastic wrist cuffs just barely forms a nice fit to keep out the wind. The inside hand pockets are lined just with the fabric but should block out the wind but won't provide any addition warmth so gloves are needed for colder temps. This autumn/winter will be the first test of his hoody jacket. The price of this hoody somewhat expensive but similar to a lightweight down jacket with the difference that down doesn't stay warm when it gets wet. Hopefully,this jacket will stay warm during the wetter autumn/winter weathers.
