Dear Patagonia community,
The COVID-19 pandemic is taking over communities around the world at an astounding rate. While testing availability in the United States is still limited, and so the extent of the virus’s spread is largely unknown, we want to do our part to protect everyone. The safety of our employees and our communities is our top priority, and we are taking responsible precautions to help stop the spread of this scary virus where we can.
We have temporarily closed our stores, offices and other operations in the United States. We have also closed stores and offices in Argentina, Chile, Japan and across Europe. Our Australia and South Korea operations will continue on a modified work schedule in stores and offices, with some stores closed depending on location. Employees who can work from home will do so. All Patagonia employees will continue to receive their regular pay during these closures.
We are working to find solutions to protect the safety of our warehouse team, and we hope to have an update about online orders in the coming weeks. We apologize that over the next two weeks there will be delays on orders and customer-service requests. We ask for your understanding and patience. We will continue to keep you updated with new developments.
We encourage our friends everywhere to take the extra precautions necessary to safeguard their health and that of others. It’s everyone’s responsibility to help stop the spread of this virus. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and your local health authorities are the best resources for updates and answers to questions.
Over the years, as our Patagonia community has been faced with challenges,I have always been inspired by how we emerge stronger and with an even deeper sense of purpose. We will persevere through this challenge, too.
Thank you for your business, loyalty and patience.
CEO and President
LOVE the Women's Nano Puff Vests!
I just bought the pineapple color and LOVE it! This is in addition to my black, gray, blue, and green nano puff vests. These vests are lightweight yet warm, and very slimming. I like the length, falling between mid and low hip. The quality is great. I literally wear these vests every day! Would you PLEASE come out with one of these is a cranberry r... Read Moreed color??? Pretty please??? LOVE this vest....please don't change it.
I am 5'2", 125lbs and live in New England. I wear this vest almost every single day since I bought it last fall. It is light enough to wear under a coat, warm enough to wear over a sweater. I love the pockets and smooth fabric, and it fits my frame perfectly. Couldn't recommend it more.
This is the one!
It is not possible to look any slimmer in a puffy vest. If you are searching for a puffy vest and trying to find the least puffy version and have warmth but not look like a marshmallow, this is the one. I’d say the sizing is generous but true to size. I tried on an XL and the zipper wouldn’t close a 3-4 inch gap. The xxl zips with a comfortable amo... Read Moreunt of room to spare for layering. I’m a size 16 with a large bust.
I have this vest is the coat version and it fits perfect. The same size (large) is too small.
Hi there, thanks for taking the time to write us a review! We're sorry to hear that the vest fits smaller than your jacket. Feedback like this is crucial to improving products for future seasons.

Sizing is not correct
I received the Nano Puff best and Jacket as a Christmas present from my husband. Well, I will be returning both. There is no way the sizing is correct. I like to have room so I can wear a sweater underneath. He purchased the xxl for me in both. If they were xxl than there really is a Santa clause because they were both way to small. A XXL was more ... Read Morelike a medium. I had my mother in law try it on. She wears a medium and it just fit her. I’m returning both and not sure if I will buy again!!
I purchased a nano puff vest many years ago and still wear it a lot. I love the warmth while being very lightweight. It’s my “go to” for under layer in winter and outer layer in spring or cool summer mornings. However, I don’t like Patagonia’s colors for women—I don’t like pink, purple, teal... come on pat, why do the men get grey, red, chartreuse?... Read More? When I saw this nano puff in grey for women, I couldn’t resist. The size is larger in the arm openings than my original vest, which means it won’t be as warm, but I’m keeping it because of the color. Thank you Pat. Now work on some other colors—like RED!
Very thin insulation
The fit and styling were great, but there seems to be very little insulation. The nano puff jacket I have has about twice as much insulation. I am disappointed, as I was hoping for a warmer insulating layer.
Hi Heidi, we're sorry to hear you're disappointed with the insulation of this vest. Please feel free to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it if you were looking to do so, but haven't already. We suggest checking out the [Micro Puff Vest](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-micro-puff-vest/84090.html) if you would like something warmer and lighter.
Nano Puff Love
I love all things Nano Puff. It is lightweight, warm, easy to wash and well made. A piece of clothing that will work hard for many years. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 only because the fit could be better. I seem to be an in between size where the medium is a little too big in the bust and the small is a little too small in the hips.

Essay too thin
There’s essentially zero insulation. Not sure how vest can keep u warm. It’s basically layers of nylon.
Hi Aran, we think that the Patagonia Women's Micro Puff® Vest would offer the best warmth for you. The Micro offers the same vegan insulation, but instead of 60-g of PrimaLoft® the Micro has 65-g of PlumaFill making the insulation loftier, helping to trap more heat. https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-micro-puff-vest/84090.html?dwvar_84090_color=FEA&cgid=womens&isSearch=true#tile-6=&q=vest&start=1&sz=24
This vest is great for many reasons. It’s lightweight, very warm when paired with a hoodie, sweaters or any coat and if I get too warm, I can roll it up and shove it in my purse.

Too long, but great vest if it would fit
I'm disappointed this was too long and bunched up in the ab and chest area for me because of the length, especially in the chest. It gave me a uni-boob look where it bunched up. The vest did fit fine along the back. It seems a lot of patagonia women's things are going really long, and this is no exception. Other than that, this is such a ...

The xl ran small, I could zip across my chest. the xxl ran huge! Could fit another person in there.
Hi Darlene! We're sorry to hear you were in between sizes with this item. If you'd like to initiate a return or exchange, you are welcome to do so here. I would recommend checking out our [W's Micro Puff Vest](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-micro-puff-vest/84090.html?dwvar_84090_color=FEA&cgid=root&isSearch=true#q=micro%2Bpuff%2Bvest&lang=en_US&start=1) in a size XL, as the garment measurements for this item are right in between the XL and XXL Nano Puff Vest.
Packable but not that warm
I got this as a layer for skiing. I love that it packs super small and is lightweight. The colors are great too and I got lots of compliments. However, I find its warmth to be waning. Seemed like when I first had it, it was great. But now it doesn't seem to add much warmth at all. Also, from the beginning the zipper would get caught. It was su... Read Moreper annoying but I dealt with it. Today, I just realized as it got stuck again and I couldn't undo it that it has ripped a hole through the outer layer and the insulation is coming out. I'm very disappointed. I was hoping it would last forever!
We are very sorry to hear about the disappointment with this vest. We are always looking to ensure your satisfaction so if you decide you'd like to [send](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return) this back to us, we'd be happy to get you taken care of. Thanks for the feedback on this!
Women’s Nano Puff Vest
This vest fits perfectly on my 5’2” /130 lb. athletic body. Lightweight fill is right for those early morning cool spells. The vest fits close to the body with room to move yet keep warmth close. The armholes are not too high or low. A long sleeved top fits comfortably underneath. The length is right. It falls just below the tailbone. This vest can... Read More comfortably be worn below a heavier jacket. The zipper works easily and the pocket zippers and interior zipper are very useful. The collar leaves room for a turtleneck top and, if not zipped up all the way, the collar can be folded down. This lightweight vest is a great piece to have and the blue color is so nice.
Too light weight and small
Sorry, was not what I had in mind. Not worth the money.
Hi Marty, thanks for taking the time to write a review! We're really sorry to hear about the disappointment. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return).
A bit roomy
I am very satisfied with the Nano vest I just received except for one small issue...the shoulder area of the vest is a bit loose and bunches up a little on the top of my shoulders. I wear a small, and was surprised about the fit as I am a kayak instructor and do not have narrow shoulders. Otherwise the vest fits well.
Ws Nano Puff Vest
This is my second purchase of same Vest. The first one (5 years old) is still fine and wonderful but I needed a smaller size . This Vest is so comfortable and light and attractive... it's my go-to for golfing and casual wear. The grey color is lovely but a good friend has a navy and the color is true and terrific!
love this vest!
I haven't had a puffy vest in many years. Love the fabric, it's soft and warm, great mid layer... best of all the fit. I have a larger torso and struggle with the Patagonia fit, this vest has a feminine shape and has enough room to be comfortable with a thicker layer under. I wear it probably too much :) adore the color combo.
I have wanted this vest for over a year and I am so excited to own it now. I'm 5'8" and 165 lbs and the Medium fits perfect. Flattering cut, durable material, and warm. I use mine a lot for cold weather running and it performs beautifully. I also will use it for spring ice climbing as well as rock climbing, hiking, and just everyday ... Read Morewhen its chilly. I love this vest!
Functional Mountain Chic
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.
Thanks for your feedback, Claudia! We're sorry to hear the fit isn't working out for you. Please note you are welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it if you haven't already. We're also always happy to email you any item's measurements chart so you can feel more confident about your next purchase.
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.
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.

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.

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 considering ordering yet another shade!!!
Cute vest bad color
I got a discount color of the nano puff vest and it's too weird to make the price worth it. I like the fit and will look for another brand and/or color to find a shoulder season light weight vest. Returning this one.

I really love colors available on this! I wear it to work, to the crag, camping, and will use it snowboarding when the season hits. It's pretty versatile and can stuff decently well. I am a little cautious with it though since the fabric does feel like it will tear easily if you snag it on something, so I would not recommend this if you are do... Read Moreing an abrasive activity. The fit is mostly great, with my only complaint being the armpits/shoulders. I love Patagonia products, but they never seem to be able to get the armpits/shoulders right for the women's clothing I own. For this jacket, you might need to try on a larger size if you have broad shoulders.
Strangely big up top
The weight felt good and the color was lovely, but this vest fit strangely. It was fitted at the waist, but very roomy through the chest and shoulders. Perhaps good for someone with broad shoulders or a large chest? I have neither, so back it went.
Sorry to hear the vest didn't work for you. You're welcome to [return](https://is.gd/DQq2nw) it to a Patagonia-owned store or send it in for a refund or merchandise credit.
Year round perfect vest-indoors and outside
I have used a black version of this vest for warmth in the house in winter and outside in cool weather. It’s been useful to shield my clothes from splatters when cooking since nothing shows on black. I won’t use my new lavender version for that purpose. Nice color for chilly days now that fall weather has begun.
sizing...is it creeping up?
Normally a small fits me with plenty of room to spare. And in the images, this vest is quite small on the model. She should be wearing a medium. When it arrived, the small was huge! I usually wear a 6 and this was like a 10. The shoulders are quite large, and so the armholes sag and it is just too long. So I am returning it for an xs. Other than th... Read Moreat, nice item. I don't mind that it is not ripstop because this won't be subjected to heavy use and will be worn over a sweater or shirt. Love the neutral smoky violet. Grays can be so interesting, and do not clash with anything.
Great material and color but small is not small
First, I love the color and weight of this vest. I plan to use for fall hikes, snowshoeing and as a layer for early winter skiing. But I agree with other reviews regarding Patagonia's sizing standards change. The clothing line is getting wider compared to similar sizes from just 5 years ago. I'm 5'6" , 120 lbs , 26" waist, ... Read More35" hips with wide muscular shoulders but slim torso and bust, and even the small is loose on me. I can't go smaller because of shoulders, so I have to deal with gaps in the stomach and bust. Please bring back or offer more slimmer lines with wider shoulders for those of use who have athletic, muscular builds but are not wide in stomach and hips. Or at least stop with putting more X's in front of a S and bring back true sizing. In the old days I was a solid M.
Puff vest and jacket
I purchased both the puff vest and jacket for a trip to Alaska in July and couldn’t me more satisfied. Wore them everywhere, everyday. They are great for travel and can fold nicely into a gallon size or perhaps even a quart ziplock bag. Surprisingly warm and comfy too. Great purchase 🙂
If I could give more stars, I would!
LOVE love love my nano puff vest. I would accumulate these in all of the colors if I could. These vests are great for everything. You can wear them as an additional warm layer while hiking, skiing, climbing, camping, etc. Or you can wear them to the office or out to dinner, and you'll look stylish.
W Nano Puff Vest
I wear an XS Nano Puff Jacket so naturally got the XS Vest. The fit is very tight and long in the torso. Does not leave room for mobility. I am hoping it stretches out over time. Sizing up would make it even longer in the torso so if you are short, I would not recommend this vest. The micro air with the mesh back was awesome for mobility and warmth... Read More- hopefully they bring that back!
I ordered the smokey violet, but didn't like the contrast lining so I ended up returning for solid black. It seemed really warm for its weight, light and feminine. I wanted to comment on the sizing because I am usually an XS in Patagonia, but after reading the reviews, ordered both XS and XXS. I am 5'4" and weigh 105 lbs, chest 32B, ... Read Morejeans usually size 24. The XXS fit better for me. The biggest difference was that the XS was larger in the chest, but there was relatively much less difference in the hips/waist. I sometimes have problems with Patagonia running too long in the torso, but the fit on this vest was great.
Buy this vest now!
So glad I finally bought the women’s down sweater vest. It is the best thing ever. It is lightweight and warm and fits under everything. Plus you can stuff it really small to take with you. I wear it all the time.I can’t believe I waited so long to get it. Now I just can’t wait to get it in another color. You will not regret this purchase.
Nano puff vest
Best ever gift. Got it for my daughter who is away at school. The weather has those in between seasons where a coat is too much. This is perfect. And it folds up so small and light it is great for hiking. She’s already washed it with Grangers wash and repel and it is perfect. I will definitely buy again for gifts. Great product.
Peach colored nano vest
I LOVE my vest! I debated a LONG time as to what size to buy but, after studying the size charts and the reviews I settled on a small.....even though I don't consider myself that small! It fits perfectly! It is perfect for spring in WI as our springs bring more sunlight but not necessarily warmer temperatures!
Women's Nano Puff Vest
Please stop changing the sizing! I'd give it the highest rating, but I usually have to exchange the clothing for a size up or down. Whatever cut you choose, please include the dimensions of the piece (not just the general category). I'm sure you will get a lot less returns/exchanges. Other than that, I *love* your garments.
Nano puff queen
I own these in every color since they started making them. I wear them year round every day! Love these as a wardrobe staple.
