Better Descriptions Needed
Hey Patagonia please list the chest measurements on all shirts and weather or not the fabric has stretch. Answers to these questions for this one: No give in the fabric, so don't plan on too much stretch. Warm but not poofy which is nice. My biggest body part is my chest, I am a 40DD so it fits just barely over my chest. I can zip it up but I ... Read Moredon't want to gain a pound. As with most clothes the rest is a bit tent like.

Hi Rene, thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We truly appreciate this feedback regarding adding the chest measurement in every item description. Don't hesitate to [contact us](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) in the future as we're happy to find that info for you.
Great in between piece
I was looking for something lighter than my down vest to wear in the spring weather. I bought a nano vest a few years ago and they have definitely changed the fit. The small fits true to size where as my other one is a medium. I am a true small size person. I love the dark blue color. I know that I will get a lot of use out of this.
Exactly what I need
Love this vest! I had wanted a better puffy vest than the old, unbranded one I had been using from Goodwill these last several years- it just didnt have good insulating power. But this, oh baby! Its perfect. Great to layer and keep toasty in the cold, or to toss over a long sleeve on those its spring but not that warm days. Great packability for ca... Read Moremping as well. Glad I made the investment.
The Best Vest!
The feather like feel makes it easy to grab and wear when heading outdoors to be in nature. I am happy I waited for it, the size was on back order for a few months but it was worth the wait! I didnt want a vest that felt too snugged, so I ordered up a size. Thank you for my first Patagonia purchase and I know not my last!
Disappointed in product
I have the same Nano Vest in black I purchased a few years ago and because it was a great product I decided to get a new one in a different color.

Thanks for letting us know Tanja! This sounds like you got a defective item. Please reach out to our customer service team to get a replacement set up.
Very thin. Much thinner than the black vest I had purchased a year ago. Very disappointed. Returned.
We're so sorry that the Nano Puff® Vest wasn't what you expected. It's a pretty thin mid-layer which can be fluffed a bit by running it through a tumble dryer on low with a few dryer balls. A vest you may find more suitable is our [Micro Puff® Vest](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-micro-puff-vest/84090.html).
Fashionable, fun, and warm
The fit is very feminine, I love to wear it casually during the day or going out at night. And its nice and slim to wear under my ski jacket and its super warm when I need it! This is the second color I have purchased, and there will probably be another one in my closet soon.
Fit not right for me
I wanted a lightweight vest, so gave this one a try. Unfortunately the fit was not right for me. I'm 67 years old with the body of a mature woman. This vest was large in the breast area and did not fit over my hips, not a new problem for me. So I had to return it. I'm opting now for the Micro Puff vest. The Micro Puff jacket fits me becau...

Not for me - or many others
I ended up returning this vest. I was looking for a nice lightweight down vest for multipurpose use. This vest seemed to fit the bill. However the fit is so off unless you have a very straight body type. I tried a medium but it was too tight on the hips and chest and loose at the waist.

Hi Gabriella, thank you for this feedback and we absolutely hear yon on this. We believe entirely, that all body types can benefit from sustainably made outdoor clothing and we apologize if there's some gaps in our line in reflecting that. We only plan to continue expanding our sizes and thank you for the comments toward this. Please feel free to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) anything back that hasn't worked out.
Weird fit for shorter torsos
I have been coveting this vest for so long. Finally bought one and was so darn disappointed. I'm 5'3" with normal bust/waist/hip proportions and a 17" torso. I have bought several Patagonia jackets in the last year. All size small. And although I've had to accept that they are a bit tight around the hip and a little loose i... Read Moren the chest (mainly because everything is made to fit tall skinny girls with perhaps broad shoulders and busty), it is not acceptable in a vest. The small was way too loose up top, the collar hit my chin (and I have a dancer's long neck), the armpit holes drooped which would let in so much wind, and because of the length it hit my hips, making the vest too tight. While moving it would slide up and bunch up like a sack. I won't bother ordering the XS, it will just be far too tight at the hip. Come on Patagonia, please, ask your designer to stop using his 5'9" skinny busty girlfriend as the sample model. Most of us are not made like that (how I wish though ;)). Please, if you're going to make everything so long, how about setting aside some fabric and shortening your patterns for the petite size (although I do not consider myself as petite...hardly.) I really want this vest. It is light weight, dries quick, and warm. But I want it to fit right. (And i don't think the Micro Puff is any better judging by the reviews of many who have the same complaints as I've pointed out.)
We're sorry the fit was disappointing on this vest, Maria! If you haven't done so already, please reach out to our Customer Service team to return it. We'll be happy to [help](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) with that, in addition to providing any measurements you'd like for our other women's vests.
Light and Warm
I recently relocated to the Northeast from the Southwest and am trying to figure out my winter layering so I can continue to be active outdoors.

Pretty dang good
This is a great mid layer when its heckin cold, and a good solo layer when its only sort of cold. Ive layered it under my rain jacket for some cold rainy days, the extra puff has been very cozy.

If it opened up a little more in the hip, I could just size down (Im 56 and a sturdy 160. 34A bust, 41 hip). The extra room up top isnt super noticeable, so Im keeping it. Its cozy, has good pockets, is a great color (grape seed), and layers well. Who knows, maybe the extra space is actually helping me stay warm! I also love Patagonias willingness to fix it if I bust a zipper or whatever. Hoping to wear this for years to come.
New Favoriate Vest
Love the latest addition to my Patagonia collection! Perfect to wear around the house with a lightweight base layer on cool days or while out hiking as an extra layer. Based on reviews of a tight fit around hips, I ordered a large, but it was too big around chest and in arm holes. The medium fits perfect.
I love this vest and have it in red as well as white. The fit is great I have a long torso and am busty. It fits perfect.

Perfect for the Colder Weather
The vest is light weight, super warm, and perfect for a walk, run, or hike. I've used it daily since purchasing due to it being very cold in my home (no heater) and just for extra warmth.

Curvy Girl - need wider bottom for vest

Tight Through the Hips
I love this vest but it didn't fit. It was fine through the chest but I couldn't zip it due to the snug fit through the hips which didn't surprise me seeing as I am not in the 20-50 ages category.

Also, with the underarm discoloration and the patches it has been relegated to more "casual" occasions which is unfortunate because I'm now lacking a versatile layering piece.

I already have two Nano Puff jackets and wanted a vest. Waited for it to go on sale. Wouldve ordered black but glad I got the happy yellow color!!!

Fantastic thin warm layer
I love this vest! its great as a layer under just about any coat or over a shirt for a little added warmth. I purchased the very cheerful pineapple yellow but a more subdued color would probably be more versatile. The fit is true to size but I can see it being tight over the hips for those that are blessed with curves.

I ultimately ordered the black L. I tried different colors that were on sale and the lighter color seemed to run smaller. I am 53. 145. 34DDD.

I want to get off the mountain, whether I'm walking the dogs, skiing or just getting some fresh air and move straight into my next activity, which let's be real is generally après. I love this vest because it can fit under all my layers and then still feels cute enough to go out for drinks after my adventure. 10/10 would buy again.
Womens Nano ppuff vest
Love the vest. I had originally ordered the xs but found it to be too big for me. I called customer service who was very helpful and suggested the xxs. It arrived the other day and it fits perfectly. I've been wearing it non stop. It's perfect for hiking in the Fall. I may wear it as a layer in the winter.
This vest is a great investment!
This vest is warm and incredibly versatile. I can wear it hiking, running or just running errands. The fabric is great quality, and I really like the quilting of the nano puff. I wanted a vest that was a fitted, so I went with the small. But if I had the need to put larger layers underneath, I would have sized up.
Great material, but the fit is really off
Unless you have a really long (and probably really straight) torso, this vest probably won't work for you... I am not sure if folks were thinking about women's hips when they designed this vest. I am fairly normally proportioned (or so I thought)... 5'4", 120 lbs, size S or M (depending on if I want to plan for layers). The armh... Read Moreoles are roomy and the fabric is lightweight and warm (I tested this around the house...), but because of the long cut, it bunches in really weird, unflattering, and uncomfortable ways.

Lightweight and warm
Went hiking in October in Canada. Was in the low 30s and high 20s. Colder at higher elevations. Mostly wore a wool baselayer and my nano puff vest and it kept me warm throughout my hikes. Also looks great with jeans and boots for a casual dinner out. Have it in 3 colors would have all if I had more money :) 5’8” and about 150 curvy. Medium is perfe... Read Morect.
I LOVE THIS VEST.
This vest is a God send for work this fall. It looks great with a blouse, long sleeve shirt, turtle neck. I'm wearing it with pencil skirts and A-line skirts. Boots or ballerina flats. LOVE this. This runs big though :0 If I had been able to try this on first, would have likely gotten the next size down.
Love the Nano Puff!
Have the Nano Puff jacket, needed the vest for lighter weather and more mobility! Perfect warmth and layering with no bulk. The sizing is different from jacket... no need to size up. Originally I did since was necessary with jacket, but with vest armpits/chest too big and fit was too boxy - not flattering at all. Stick with your true size in the ve... Read Morest, even in the hips - plenty of room. I am 5'9 and ordered M size. Only disappointed in the colors - wny no Mako Blue in the Nano Puff vest?? Will keep my fingers crossed for next year!
This is my 3rd women's
This is my 3rd women's nano puff vest! After wearing my basic colors constantly, I decided to add a more fun hue. The lighter weight is perfect for layering year round, in our unpredictable, Cape Cod climate. The style suits my body type: tall, narrow hips & curvy on top. I'm
