Ms Nano Puff® Hoody

True To Size
December 2, 2023

Previous Nano Puff Buyers Beware

I have a 3 year old nano puff and just purchased this years' model. There is at least 50% less fill and it is half as warm as the previous model. It works as a midlayer but is not suitable as an outer in below freezing conditions anymore. Do not expect this to be the "winter jacket" you remember.

Response from Patagonia
December 7, 2023

Hi Eric, thank you for sharing your feedback with us on the current version of the Men's Nano Puff Hoody. We are sorry to hear you experienced a significant difference in the insulation from your previous model. The only change in our insulation in the Nano Puff in the last three years was in our 2020 model. We went from 55% to 100% recycled insulation and is now 100% post-consumer recycled, keeping more than 9 billion plastic bottles out of the landfill annually! The insulation has stayed at the 60 grams PrimaLoft Gold Insulation Eco weight. We have reached out to you directly as this may be a quality issue. With any product issues like this, feel free to reach out, we are always [happy to help](!

Just Right on Most Occasions

This jacket is warmer than it looks when it needs to be, but not overly hot when you are in more moderate temps. I have found it to be a great piece if the temps are above freezing, or below layered with a fleece if you are trying to avoid a bulky insulated jacket. It is, for sure, my go to jacket for most occasions here in the southeast.

November 26, 2023

Not for cold weather

This is my first time wearing Patagonia jacket, the overall jacket's fit and quality are top notch but it is not functional at all. I felt cold at 50F Atlanta, GA weather, this is not for regular wear but for out door activities like hiking, biking etc. The jacket is flimsy and too thin, they should not advertise this as warm jacket instead sh...

Response from Patagonia
November 29, 2023

Hi there, thank you for taking the time to write a review. We're so sorry to hear that the Nano Puff Hoody didn't keep you warm enough. We do have warmer options available, and we suggest taking a look at the Micro Puff Hoody. The Micro Puff is generally considered warmer that the Nano Puff due to a few factors. First, the Micro Puff uses a higher fill power insulation, which means it has a greater ability to trap and retain heat. Additionally, the Micro Puff has a slightly thicker layer of insulation, providing more warmth. Keep in mind that personal preferences and individual body responses to temperature can vary, so it's always a good idea to consider your specific needs and preferences when choosing a jacket.

Great jacket, true to fit, warm but not bulky

Great fit!

Not only is this a great fitting jacket, it is incredibly warm, lightweight and is not bulky at all. Purchased an XL (6-4", 210lbs.) and I still have room for a base layers.

Warm but never Hot

Great jacket for sub 50 degree days. Keeps me warm but seems to breathe well so never get hot.

My kid plays hockey and I finally have the perfect jacket for the rink. Sooooo warm and will probably never need another jacket.

I love this jacket / not perfect fit

First of all. I love this jacket. I wear it all the time. However I have noticed that as years went by Patagonia is having major sizing problems. I was always an S in Patagonia. Same happens with other garments and jackets I own. The nano from ten years ago in S is the perfect fit for me. And I still wear it. Now if I compare that jacket to the M o... Read Moref this season (which I bought) the size of the chest and waist is the same but it's larger and the length of the arms is ridiculous. The same problem I noticed with other garments like the micro puff or the down sweater. You could say it's me, but the fact that same jackets from other seasons fits much better and I have the chance to compare them calls my attention. S is too S, M is kind of large and not perfect fit.

Best Fit Ever

As always, Patagonia provided a stellar product, with a perfect fit. Finally a clothing company that shows sizes on their model photos to more easily gauge size needed. Color is awesome, and elastic wrist/waste bands are amazing.

Hooded Nano Puff number two for me. The last one lasted 10 years of 100 days per year of use. More durable fabric than the Hooded Micro Puff Jacket. Please do not change this jacket.

We cannot say enough about the quality, fit, warmth, look and feel of the Nano line of products. They are superb.

Purchased Medium because Large in other style was too big.

In Feb 2023, I ordered a Large (mens) Torrentshell 3L. The Large was too big. I returned and purchased a Medium. The medium fits perfect. This is my favorite rain jacket!

I returned easily! I really like the Nano Puff Hoody, but the fit seems way off. I have a Northface Thermoball hoody and it fits perfect.

We're sorry to hear about the difference in sizing from the two different products, even though they are both Regular fit. Your feedback is valuable, Steve! It looks like you've already returned it, so we'd like to recommend you take a look at either sizing up in a Slim fit stretchy hoody like the Nano-Air, or checking out something like our [Men's Diamond Quilted Bomber Hoody]( which has a more relaxed body. If you have any questions at all about specific measurements or fit tips, please reach out to our Customer Service team. We'll be happy to help!

Great Jacket

Wore this on a river trip every day, perfect light jacket for a cool morning/evening around the campfire.

August 22, 2023

Nice jacket, a little narrow at the waist.

I am a relatively small/fit frame, 5'11'', 160lb. For me, I like athletic fit, and size S fits my shoulders and chest perfectly, but the waist is a little too tight. I won't go up to a larger size but I do wish the waist was 1-2'' larger for this.

Warm, packable and lightweight. Hood fits under helmet, which is awesome! Best grab and go jacket.

Nano puff

Feels like a warm hug

The nanopuff is simple, practical, the zippers are very well made. The jacket works between from the low 40s to high 60s. It was a worthwhile investment and I wear it all the time.

Patagonia has been a favorite brand of mine for a decade now.

The Best Everything Jacket Patagonia Makes

A lot of Patagonia jackets have been redesigned for bigger people and don't fit as trimly as is required for more active use. This jacket fortunately has retained its original fit and thus function with proper length and girth of sleeves that do not get caught up in ropes or chainsaws, the jacket wears well as an outer layer and layers underne... Read Moreath other jackets without bulging or binding. I have an old version that is patched and sewn after more than 10 years of wear and I still use it because it still works. I was hesitant in fact to get a new one, because I figured Patagonia had redesigned this garment like others I used to rely on, but fortunately not. The new one is perhaps slightly more puffy but that could be because my old one is flattened from age. But if you need an all-weather all-purpose insulating layer, get this jacket. Perfect as currently designed. Hopefully Patagonia won't change it.

A Classic Standard

The Nano Puff Hoody for me is a classic standard. I wear it year round. Warm enough to use with other layers on a cold Midwest winter morning but not too warm to wear on a brisk summer night.

The #1 all around Jacket

Great layering piece

Big fan on this jacket. It's the right weight for year round - sometimes on it's own and sometimes as a layer over or under. Also great for traveling as it takes up so little space for all the functionality it provides.

Wanted to love the jacket

Overall I was excited to get this jacket. I run pretty warm and have been looking for a light windproof jacket that I could wear daily during the winter. Overall it met my expectations of being light and warm enough to not have me freezing in the winter. However I feel like Ive found negatives to this jacket that sadly ruin the overall expectation ... Read Morefor me. Ive only had the jacket for a month and there has been visible treads coming undone near the waist, cuffs/forearms, and shoulders. Im not being hard on the jacket, and I would consider the one thing that might be seen as hard on the jacket is wearing a backpack every now and then. I know the jacket isnt indestructible, but still I haven't owned it long. I have also seen heavy staining on the inside and now the outside in the armpit areas from sweating. Overall I just didnt expect these issues to start occurring until years of wearing the jacket. Not just 3-4 weeks. If you are looking to absolutely buy one I would only recommend getting a black one. You wont see stains that easily this way, and the stitching coming undone wont be terribly visible either potentially. As my jacket color and thread color are 2 different colors. For the price I just don't feel like the jacket will last through normal wear and tear as time goes on.

Almost Perfect

Great Patagonia jacket. I love the comments from other people. The classic navy color is beautiful. There are a few sizing quirks however.

Cool to Cold Go-To

I splurged and bought (on my tight budget) my first nano puff jacket in 2013 for a trip to Europe that required a lot of walking/hiking and frequent weather changes. I also wanted to pack light. The nano puff faced down all that a Spring trip to Europe had to offer and exceeded my expectations immediately. I continued to wear this jacket for the ne... Read Morext 10 years almost daily from the time of the first cool breeze in Autumn until it became too warm to wear in Spring/Summer. (On rare Nashville, TN, Winter days I would just add the Patagonia fleece vest underneath and have plenty of warmth.) Over the past 10 years, I would have the jacket repaired multiple times from burn holes, snagged seams, and thinning outer - all done quickly and free of charge by Patagonia. It finally just got too threadbare to continue wearing daily in my mid-management, corporatey job . So, I took it in to my local brick-n-mortar, traded it for recycling, and pick up my second ever nano puff. Looking forward to the next 10 years with this one.

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.

Very comfortable

Great fit, light weight and relatively warm for the weight. This is my go-to jacket for casual wear and active sports.

Fit tweak?

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

October 23, 2022

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

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... Read Moreold air out and the hood provides great warmth and articulation for your head. When all said and done, it packs down into a small cube that you can easily store away. 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.

September 28, 2022

Best jacket

I love this jacket, have owned one for years. Wears well, plenty warm through large temp range, never lets me down. Highly recommend it

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.

September 10, 2022

One of my all time

One of my all time favorites! Versatile piece for a wide range of activities. Light and packable. Warm and worth keeping in your pack.

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.

June 25, 2022

My son wear same product last 6 years still keep good shape and his best favorite jacket . He wants to buy one more so I bought as a gift but price is little high.

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. I have to literally watch every step I take. I passed a tree and one of the small branches brushed against the sleeve and tore a hole in it! The insulation started coming out of the smal... Read Morel hole. For as expensive as this jacket is you would think it wouldnt just tear like paper but unfortunately it did.

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.

Really comfortable

Really comfortable, wear in colder office work center and didnt sweat and wasnt cold. Very light weight, barely could tell I was wearing a jacket. Probably my favorite part.

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

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.

Terrible sizing for big guys

Im so disappointed with sizing for big guys like myself. Im 65 270lbs and I cant find a jacket that will fit me. 3xl is huge and 2xl is too small.

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.
