Patagonia Men's Nano Puff® Vest

True To Size
November 22, 2020

Extremely Functional

I live in Northern California and I like to hike year-round. My challenge is that when I hike I tend to sweat, even in the winter months, so I was looking for layers that breath well yet keep me warm even if a little wet. I found the perfect combination in this Nano Puff vest along with Patagonia's R1 Fleece Pullover and a synthetic layer bene... Read Moreath that. This combo wicks moisture away from my skin, and the zippers allow me to regulate warmth and moisture evaporation very well. I also wear this jacket is great to wear casually and find it very comfortable.

I was on the fence for a while about purchasing one of these before finally getting around to it. It has that extra warmth that you cant get with a fleece vest.

November 19, 2020

Perfect For All Occasions

My wife and I have had these in the past and loved the many ways we used them. They are simple, warm and good looking.

November 15, 2020


Love the product; but sadly the company more. They stand behind their items adhere to environmentally friendly processes. Most companies are wear and toss. Not Patagonia! They do not need advertising because their product quality does it for themselves. All I can say is thank you and I look forward to future business.

Love the bigger pockets

Wear it for golf when it will be warming up later in the day ...thinner/ smaller than most brands

Round Two

Second one of the same color and type. I literally wore holes in the old one after years of hard duty. Great product.

November 6, 2020


Bought this as Christmas gift for husband who tried on early... L is his normal size and it is perfect. Love the bright blue color and seems well made with great pockets.

November 3, 2020

Light weight

Very lightweight and a nice outer layer for a fall in the south!

November 2, 2020

super warm

super warm for a vest. went one size up to fit a hoodie under it

November 1, 2020

Very comfortable

I have been using Patagonia since they were Great Pacific Iron Works. My closet is filled with their products. They make good stuff in a sensitive manner and sell it at a fair price. I have never had a problem with a Patagonia product and this vest keeps my string of satisfaction intact.

Like a glove

Love this vest. Fits like a glove. Im 60 at 175lb and got the medium. Super warm, light weight. Exactly what I was looking for.

September 24, 2020

Beautifully designed and sewn

Very high quality. This vest replaces my 20 year old fleece vest. So I'm still getting used to the slight rustle this fabric makes compared to fleece. I wear it inside late fall to early spring as we keep our heat 68F/20C in the winter. I also wear it hiking in the woods, observing wildlife. From the old comes the new, as the new leaf bud ...

Mens nano puff vest

I have bought two of these vests for my husband. He wears one every day- in the summer and winter in Montana, Really. He likes the light weight and the pockets. Will definitely by another this Spring

September 6, 2020

Second one

Great vest; this is my second one. Easy to pack, warm and great for a third layer while skiing in cold CO. weather.

September 5, 2020

Not a Regular Fit

Patagonia shirts and sweaters that I have purchased run big so I bought a small vest because it is described as a regular fit. I weight 155 and normally buy medium clothes (except Patagonia).

September 5, 2020

Love this vest

I bought the green one because I loved the gray one I bought last year so much. I'm 5'11'' 170lbs I like the fit of the large but I think I medium would have been ok.

September 5, 2020

Just right.

Ordered this and the Micro Puff to see which one I liked more... I went with the nano puff. Arm holes just right, and I preferred the lower pocket position. I did like the big inside pockets in the nano, but the nano was just a little off for me. Micro will be just right. The easy thin layer that adds a good amount of warmth without bulk.

September 4, 2020

Great Vest

This is the third one I have purchased and it is a spare for when one of my other Patagonia vests dies. I tried to get one repaired that I've had for years but they said they could not do it so I took it to my local place and they did some repairs for me. I use my two all the time and carry my wallet and cell phone in them since they come with... Read More zipped pockets. No chance of losing anything or have bulging pockets. I love these vests.

September 1, 2020

Fits Great

I needed something for commuting by bike and wearing in the office on colder days. Fits great and looks good too.

September 1, 2020

Just right for layering

The construction is on par with the rest of Patagonias jackets. Its not super toasty all by itself but its perfect for layering over a tshirt or sweater and you wont look stuffed if you throw a light coat over it. Ive been wanting this one for a while and refused to buy a cheaper vest. Im not disappointed.

July 13, 2020

Should have bought 2!

Excellent quality/comfort ratio. Love it. Super light too.

This vest fits nicely and moves with you very comfortably. It's not hot but keeps you warm. Great for packing.

Nan Puff vest

This is my sixth Nano Puff purchase. I liked the color. Re the size: historically have selected a medium and I have lost ten pounds since my last purchase. This medium was too tight in the hips.

Awesome jacket. Love it

I like this jacket a lot. Light weight and perfect fit jacket. I love Patagonia products. However I love Patagonia but I am not satisfied with their customer service. They should improve their issue escalation mechanism and provide timely responses.

Great piece for casual layering.

This is a great piece for casual layering from late spring until early fall. I own two. Blocks the wind and keeps my core warm without a lot of bulk. Ideal for air travel. Very packable. My only picky complaint is the way Nano Puff material wears. It starts out with a little structure - just right, but it slowly loses the structure and becomes... Read More soft and floppy. This doesnt seem to effect the warmth or wind protection, but it does feel more like wearing a bag. Please note - this only happens to me after a couple years of wear. Thank you for the current length of your vests. They used to be a little short, but not anymore.

June 26, 2020

New vest

I bought this for my husband. He wanted something warm, yet light. This is it! And the blue/turquoise color is beautiful.

June 20, 2020

Awesome Vest

I travel to SE Asia 7-8 times a year... this a great travel vest for those long plane flights... plus Im a climber and mountain biker... its warm and light and eco friendly! Great job Patagonia!! Keep up the great work!!

June 19, 2020

Go to clothing

I use Patagonia clothing every day during winter. Whether skiing or going out in the cold, its my go-to jacket, or ski pants. Most clothing fits well but some stuff runs a bit slim. Like jackets around the waist. Im an in between size small/medium so most small items fit but sometimes have to go to a medium to fit my 31 waist.

June 18, 2020

Perfect gear for spring/fall golf. keeps the core warm so the hands stay warm.

I play golf down to 45 degrees in upstate NY and this vest is perfect. Keeps my arms free to swing and my core warm.

June 17, 2020

Great base!

I use this as a base for starting out on a morning hike. When I get warm, I stuff it into the small spaces of my backpack. Paired with a Houdini windbreaker - Perfect for hiking!

June 17, 2020

Love this but fit didn't work

Vest is great, thin and warm. Used for fat biking and skiing in the winter, as well as just casually. I'm 6'2" and about 175 pounds and unfortunately, the vest did not fit. The medium was too short (otherwise fit perfectly) and the large was the right length but too wide in the body. A medium long cut would have been a perfect fit. I...

Tall sizes

I would like to purchase your jackets and vests in XL Tall. Do you offer Tall sizing?

Nano Vest is perfect

Bought for my husband and he loved it - fit and function A+

Perfect Nano-Weight Vest

Liter than the down vest and just another tool in the kit closet for days in between balmy and cool when down is too warm and a simple shirt gives the chills. I believe my clothes line is complete!

March 3, 2020

Runs a Bit Small

I ordered a medium and it fit me way too tight. Luckily I was able to easily swap it for a large and it fits me much better.

February 17, 2020

Great vest

I bought this for my husband on sale for Valentines and the fit is perfect! He loves it wears it in the house or under winter coat to add extra warmth!

February 11, 2020

Nice Fitting Warm Vest

I ordered a size L (5-10, 185lbs) - fits well. The one measurement they don't specify in the sizing information is the circumference around the buttocks. This vest has a slight athletic fit that drops down over the buttocks and should be OK for anyone with a measurement up to ~ 43- 44". The other nice aspect of this vest is a slightly hig... Read Moreh collar. When zipped all the way up, it comes to just under the lips (may vary person to person) but compared to other vests, this collar is a 1/2 or more higher than others. The arm holes also have a slight bit of elasticity to them. Both of these features really help seal out drafts. Ultra light weight warmth without much bulk!

January 28, 2020

Perfect gift!

Lightweight vest that you can wear with anything. Got it for a gift for my spouse and he loves it. The best runs true to size. Can be worn athletically or casually. Wind resistant, breathable, warm, and comfortable.

Best Versatile Vest

The Nano Puff Vests are the best. Versatile, classy, rugid, comfortable, great for travel and they never go out of style.

Very Disappointed after receiving this as a Christmas gift.

I haven owned used the Nano Jacket for years and love it. I thought the vest would be a lot like the jacket but it is nothing like it as far as insulation. I received this vest as Christmas present. I now regret having put it on my Christmas list. The insulation is nearly none existent. I might as well wear two trash bags as the insulation would ... Read Morebe similar and the cost much cheaper. It is a misnomer to call it a puff vest as 'puff' is what it really lacks. I own many Patagonia products that I have reused for many years. I am extremely disappointed in this one and concerned that the company is heading the wrong direction if this is the type of overpriced and poorly designed product they are making now. Hopefully this is a one off mistake but I won't continue to buy products if this ends up being a trend. Very disappointing.

Lightweight ,but very warm

Lightweight but very warm

This is my second nano puff vest and they are my favorite cold weather layering pieces. It’s very lightweight but very warm and not bulky at all. I wish you would make it in more primary colors, maybe a red and a dark green. I already own the navy and the black.

Love it

Soft, warm, great fit, packs in itself for easy carry, and makes a great topper for cool days, or mid layer for cold days. I ordered a medium at 5 10. 185 w a 43 inch chest and needed to re-order a large. Large fits great.

I bought this as a gift for my husband. When he opened it, he acted like he didn't need it, asked why I'd bought it (he's always complaining of being cold in the house), and told me I could just send it back (he's very frugal). I told him, OK, I will, but just wear it for the night with the tags on, try it. So he did. The next d... Read Moreay, he reached for it again, however, and told me he thought he might keep it!

I’m 6-1 and slim. The large has a relaxed fit on me that’s not snug but not too loose. I love how it packs into a small travel pillow using the inside chest pocket.

It’s perfect

After ten years of skiing, I’m still trying to perfect my layering. I have a nano puff pullover but it has seen better days. So I thought I’d give the vest a try and it was perfect the other day. Just enough warmth with no Michelin man effect. Love it. I got a large cause I will be wearing it over a sweatshirt, under my ski shell.

Hi Allen, thanks for taking the time to write us a review! We're really sorry to hear about the disappointment with the vest. It's not the warmest vest that we offer so if it's just not working for you're welcome to [return]( If you're looking for something warmer we'd suggest the [Down Sweater Vest](

Great layering piece

Functional layer for skiing, but also looks great over a button down shirt while sitting in a meeting and dreaming of pie turns.

November 11, 2019

Inconsistent sizing

Purchased large due to sizing from other Patagonia purchases. Vest would not allow for layering so had to purchase x-large. Quality appears fine.

November 11, 2019

Warm and well-fitting

Slim fit but not too slim; fits over base layers but is tighter over bulkier layers (like thick fleece.) Fits better than my 6 year-old micro puff vest, pockets are more solid and overall a more comfortable iteration.

November 10, 2019

Awesome! But I wish they made a hooded version.

This is one of my favorite outwear pieces to wear in the fall and spring. I'm 6'1" 180 and the medium fits greats.

Versatile, warm, attractive

The nano puff vest is extremely versatile. It is thin and warm so you can wear it alone or under a blazer, flannel shirt or wool winter coat when it gets super chilly. It packs up small to stow in your brief case. I have three of these in different colors to match my wardrobe. Has also has a nice snug fit with good length to cover the waste. I am 5... Read More 8", 162 lbs and ordered a medium. Small was too snug. Very thin though and may not be rugged enough for high friction activities.

October 19, 2019

Changed fit

I replaced a 10 plus year old coat and vest. The store associate said the fit had changed. Very poor fit, much too slim and armholes too high. And no,inside vest pocket. Very obvious you are cutting corners on products now.

October 15, 2019

Perfect vest!

The vest is lightweight yet super warm. Perfect in the northeast during fall or as a layering piece as it gets colder. Highly recommended.

October 15, 2019

I wish that the new

I wish that the new puff vest had the internal pocket that the old down vest did.

October 4, 2019

Exactly as advertised

Great layer and good fit. Purchased this for a mid layer as extra protection. Arm holes for my 5 '10" 180 lb frame are fitted closely with good movement, but small enough to retain heat. Waist size was spot on. True to Size.

Essential Clothing Item

This is arguably one of the most essential clothing items one should own. With its slim profile it makes for the perfect lightweight top or as an extra layer underneath a coat. The fit is simply perfect, especially when being active, with no binding in the shoulders at all. The Nano Puff version is extremely packable and perfect for travel.

Nano Puff vest

Excellent product, a pleasure to wear. Love the color and style, toasty warm on cold powder days

Great Vest!

Happy with my purchase. Glad I chose the Navy and Black...they look great! Proud to continue to support Patagonia’s mission! Looking forward to wearing them this Fall/Winter.

September 25, 2019

Great fit and color

This is the second color (grey in addition to the black I already had) I have purchased of this vest, finding it to an excellent mix of warmth, fit, and function.

September 22, 2019

Classic in a great color

These vests are great - stylish and functional

September 21, 2019

Warm and comfortable

I found the jacket version of this vest was way too warm for me... but the vest is just the right balance.

September 20, 2019

Best vest

Having a nano puff will eventually lead to owning a nano vest. It sells itself. Warm, light, durable and keeps plastic waste from the landfills. Throw this over an R1 on mild fall days, or can use as a solid mid layer when the snow starts to fall. 100% recommended. For reference 6' 18lbs and the L is a great fit.

September 16, 2019

Runs small

trim, sharp-looking, warm. But runs really small.

September 16, 2019

Great for all occasions!

I'm 5'10", about 160lbs and I got he medium. The vest is what you've come to expect from Patagonia. Looks great, and quality craftsmanship. My only grip is that the sizes from year-to-year are a little different. I would like it just a little bit slimmer like last years model.

Got this for my husband

Great nano puff vest

Patagonia site is super easy to navigate. Cornucopia of quality stuff. I needed a warm, low profile vest and this nano puff is exactly what I wanted.

Nano Vest

Good Fit. Am certain it will be toasty warm when the temps go down.

I thought the fit was a little on the small side. I’m 5’8” 157 lbs .. work out regularly.

August 29, 2019

Great vest

Purchased this for my husband for an outside work vest as it is easier to care for than the down filled "sweater" pullover and other down items. Ordered a larger even though he wears a M in shirts and glad we did - gives him room for layering and good arm movement.

August 29, 2019

Daily comfort

I now own three of these vests in different colors and wear them all the time, indoors and outside, at work or on the trail. I love the snug-ish fit so the vest is never in the way, and how it keeps me warm throughout the year. I wear it over a t-shirt in the spring and summer, or as a layer in other seasons. The cut/fit is perfect, and always look... Read Mores stylish!

A little snug for me

Have been a Patagonia devotee since the 80's and love their gear. This vest gets rave reviews everywhere and thought I'd try one at the great on sale price. Sadly I'm returning it today because despite being a "regular fit" it's just a little too snug for my comfort. I'm 62 years old now and not quite as trim as I... Read More used to be but it seems that Patagonia menswear has been sizing on the smallish size lately and I usually am a Medium. At 5'8" and 160# it felt a bit more constricting through the torso than I'm comfortable with. Other than that it looks to be the typical quality Patagonia product you'd expect. The men's Better Sweater Vest I got in Medium was fine and a keeper.

Response from Patagonia

Sorry to hear that the sizing of the vest wasn't quite right. You're welcome to [return]( it to a Patagonia-owned store or send it in for a refund or merchandise credit.

This is my second Patagonia vest. I wore out my first one and my only choice for my next one was Patagonia. Excellent fit, thickness and all around comfort. Thanks for such a quality product.

Great for Layering

I work as a ski instructor in Utah, whether its a cold January morning or some springtime laps this vest is amazing! This is the perfect balance between staying warm, yet not too warm. I wear it under my coat while teaching, and in the spring wear it over a flannel. Patagonia does it again!!

Takes the Gold

Just received Hammonds Gold Nano Puff Vest. I am very happy with the size (XL) and color. Sometimes Patagonia changes the shape of its product when they send out a new color scheme.. Not this time. I own 2 other Puff Vests from previous years and this one fits me the same. The Hammonds Gold is a great color and a little different for Patagonia. Tha... Read Moret's what I was looking for to help mix things up a bit. The Gold seems to have a little more brown mixed in versus the Hammonds Gold on their Fjord Flannel (appears to be a brighter orange on the flannel).

Great all around versatile layer

The vest arrived and i don't think i went a day without it for a couple weeks. Seems to keep me warm when I need it to and not TOO warm ever.

nearly perfect product

this vest does exactly what it is supposed to do - it's warm and windproof, but not bulky at all, so it can either we worn inside or outside other layers. great for traveling due to its packability. i would make sure to try it on before buying because the sizing chart seems to run very small. for example, it says that i should wear a medium. ...

Very warm, might want to size up

For all shirts and coats, if I want a good fit then I get a small or even possibly an extra small. I was about to order a small, but I tried this on in Nordstrom and realized a medium would actually be a little snug but the good type of snug. It is warm for a vest and works good in all those aspects, but I recommend trying it on beforehand in case ... Read Moreyou might want to size up.

Great product!

I’ve owned this nano puff vest for almost 2 years. It is an essential piece of my winter gear. Light weight, stuffable into a bag, and allows for more mobility than wearing a jacket.

Love this Vest so much i have 2 and want a 3rd

Living in Arizona this vest is perfect for everything, fits great, extremely durrable, looks great, and the primaloft has the perfect balance of warmth and wind blocker for all my adventures in the city or the mountains. Im 6'2 and have 32" waist so i wear a Medium and it fits perfect!

Great vest for any activity. Have black and gray, wish they had the classic navy like the jacket.

Overall Good But,

Tiny bit too long so that it rides up when I sit down and the armholes are too small if you plan to wear anything under it.

Great vest while it lasted

I got this vest as a gift last year and absolutely loved it! The fit is true to size,it's warm,light,packs really well and is super versatile.

Excellent vest - a daily wearer!

I purchased this a couple of months ago,and I have been wearing it nearly 3-4 days of the week since.

Read Moreor something a bit less dirt-bag. :) Definitely well worth the price,and it fits beautifully. If I had any complaints,it's that it's a bit on the puffy side (it's a puffy after all) and I prefer my vests to be a bit more slim in profile - like the Nano Air. For what you're paying,however,this is REALLY hard to beat!

March 10, 2018

Awesome! But they shrunk it!

This is my favorite thing to wear! So light and warm. Looks great. However,beware because for some crazy reason the new version is much smaller. Bought another one and it is way tighter than my current one. I guess I have to hope the next size up fits right? Inconvenient. Not sure why they messed with perfection.

I was gifted this nano puff vest for Christmas and could not be happier with the fit,comfort,and build quality.

Warm and Light

This is my second Nano Puff Vest. It fits much better than the first one as it is less expansive across my waist. The vest is warm,light and a perfect extra layer of insulation.

December 26, 2017

Good vest overall,but with a drawback

Great amount of heat and wind protection in a very lightweight vest. Not very breathable,but I wasn't expecting it to be. I like the fact that it is mostly made of recycled material. The only drawback for me is the design of the vest. The collar could use more padding to hold up better and feel softer on the chin. It tends to either press back... Read More on my neck or chin,or kind of fold down. This makes it less confortable which is a bummer for its intended use (pretty much whenever I am cold) and the price tag. Using a smaller size might have helped with this issue,but sizing down made the vest very tight on me (impossible to wear anything else than a thin t-shirt). In sum,small changes could make this good vest an awesome one.

Fantastic vest,just a little tight around waist

I've had my vest for almost two months now and I absolutely love it!

Nice vest

I bought this for my husband. He normally wears XL but the XL in this vest was extremely snug. Had to return for XXL which looks great. This product runs very small!

September 23, 2017

Love it!

I was never much of a vest person. I have several in my closet that never get worn. Since I purchased the Nano Puff Vest,I have worn it almost every day. It takes away the morning chill of 50' and is perfectly comfortable at 69'. I live in the mountains and it's usually chilly.

September 18, 2017

Does it's job well!

I bought this ahead of a backpacking trip in Yosemite,wanting something light and packable that could add some warmth. It was perfect for the trip,being easy to stuff wherever in my pack,not adding much weight,and adding a perfect layer of warmth during the cold evenings and mornings.

Very thin,but warm. Sizing is weird.

I'm 5'10",170 lbs.I usually wear size Large in most other brands of clothing,but found the Large for this vest fit more like an XL. Meanwhile,the Medium fit somewhat perfect around my chest and shoulders,it felt a little snug around my waist when zipped and feels like it could maybe use another inch in length. I'm realizing for... Read More Patagonia,I'm a Medium. The slightly snug fit of the Medium was preferable to having something that was way oversized. (Large looked like I was wearing a Glad bag,and it was only 1 size up.) Aside from that,the vest is amazingly warm without the bulk,and the materials feel soft. I suggest that you spend a good amount of time trying on the different sizes to ensure you get the right fit you're looking for. The Nano Puff is awesome,I even picked up the jacket version. Nothing else like it!

My favorite ever. Great in the San Francisco CA area...always need a little warmth!
