My daily wear
I had to buy a second one in the same color since I have been wearing mine daily. The first is getting a bit worn, so will be shifting to yard work attire. These vests are the perfect layering piece, wash up very well and are flattering. I also now have 3 nano puff jackets in different colors.
This is my third Patagonia vest, the second one being exactly like this one and the one before that having diamond-shaped stitching instead of boxed. I wore and wore the first one to the point of tiny holes near the zipper. Then I got the second one and have worn that for years also. Still using that one some and just started using the third. It is... Read More light in weight but adds so much in comfort. Glad they are still making it. I just wish they also still made a light weight zip up fleece like the one of those that I have worn for years too.
As with all Patagonia products, this Nano Puff vest is well made and stylish. I ordered a size large, one size larger than normal for me, because the medium that I have is slightly tight, as I've gained weight. I was surprised at how much bigger the large vest was than the medium that I have, in fact it was so large that sadly, I had to return... Read More it.
not a great fit for me
Even though I'm larger on top and smaller through the hips, this was too tight in the hips and then too large on top. Given how long it was, I knew I couldn't move up to a larger size, so I returned it.

Light as a feather, but warm!
When I opened this up I was laughing - it seems like it's not filled with anything, just fabric. But, remarkably - it is quite warm! It's not going to rival down or anything, but I'm excited for it to fit in with my gear on a month long trekking trip to Nepal with very limited baggage.

Light, warm and well-designed
I love the look and the design of this vest. Zippered pockets are well thought out, elastic at the armhole lets you move. Seaming in the back gives a flattering fit. Four stars because the fit is a little too close to the body for my 65 year old body. But Ive been wearing Patagonia for 36 years and Im not going to stop now!
I have two--a winter staple with an R1 zip-neck underneath and Nano Jacket over. Love how they glide on when layering. Little details that would be great are if they came with a few extra zipper-pull tabs. Those seem to frequently break off in the washing machine, and two-way zippers. Also would love to see the Dark Ruby color from Winter '21 ... Read Morereturn, along with more neutral colors and fewer pastel colors.
A staple! Wear it all winter with an R1 shirt underneath, and Nano Puff jacket over. Love that it glides on as an underlayer. Only wish it came with a two-way zipper which I prefer as an equestrian. Would love to see it available in the Dark Ruby color of Winter '21!
I chose the small size
I chose the small size because I have a slender build but broad shoulders. the medium size was too baggy and large around the torso. the small fit my body but is sort of tight in the arm holes. I have an athletic build and was hoping it would feel more comfortable for doing activities and for just wearing casually. I didn't recognize how tight...

I love Patagonia. I tried
I love Patagonia. I tried this vest and anther Patagonia vest in medium and large. The problem is they are all shaped for very curvy women. On me, they gap around the breast and arm holes. I prefer the shapes from years ago that were flatter. Can't you offer some choices? I can't wear any of your jackets or vests now.
This works for everything! Trim cut - love this!
I bout the jacket too in a different color as I can wear this everyday for various reasons. It is a slim but true to size fit.

Bought this without trying one
Bought this without trying one on because I thought it would fit the same as the jacket which fit me well. It was way more snug than the jacket not allowing for layers underneath. Truly disappointed. Customer service was excellent as far as returning.

Perfect lightweight warmth
This is my go-to vest when I want a lightweight and easy packable layer for any event or activity. I take it on walks, hikes, travel, shopping, or out for dinner. The vest fits true to size and is comfortable to wear as an outer layer or under a jacket. Love it!
This vest is very well
This vest is very well made, with several pockets and good materials. However, the fit did not work for me. The vest continually rode up, and seemed to be too loose around the arm holes. The stretchy darts on the sides of the chest area also seemed to be part of the problem.

Unfortunately I only gave this
Unfortunately I only gave this three stars as it is very unflattering on me. I have a pear shape figure and it is not always an easy shape to find a good fit ie. in an a-line dress I easily fit a size 4, and jeans always a 6. This jacket barley fits over my hip area (could probably use a bigger size here) YET it is too roomy in the bust (I am an A ... Read Morecup) so in summary not entirely flattering. This is of course the drawback to online shopping, had I tried it on in a shop I probably wouldn't have purchased it. Saying that.... It is extremely practical though and so is getting a lot of use! I get very cold very easily especially across the shoulders and neck as soon as there is any draft. This jacket is super light and folds up tiny, easily shoved into a backpack or even handbag. I also use it to sneak as an under layer when wearing something smarter. I had to attend a dressier occasion where I wore a dress, boots and jacket. I wore it under my jacket, with a scarf covering the neck line. As it is thin it is not at all bulky and I was very grateful for the warm layer. I would therefore recommend it to a friend who needed a light, yet warm extra layer that can fold up tiny and travel wherever you go when not needed.
Much thinner than past nano puff, fit is tight in waist.
I'm so disappointed in this vest. I have a nano puff jacket from a few years ago that I absolutely love, so decided to get the vest. I ordered the same size as my jacket (which fits perfectly), and the waist is SO tight. Why has the waist gotten so tight in Patagonia with the latest styles? Apparently women with relatively normal hips are not... Read More the model size. Also, I know this is Patagonia's thinnest fill and the whole thing about the nano puff is being thin but somewhat warm, but it's probably half the thickness of my nano puff jacket. Literally some of the baffled sections don't seem to have any fill at all, it's just 2 layers of thin fabric. Honestly it seems cheap (which it's not, obviously). Big disappointment. I've been buying the brand for 20+ years but unfortunately end up returning most things any more.

Hi Lucy, thank you for sharing your experience with the Nano Puff Vest. We're so sorry this fit wasn't good for you! And while the vest is thin, it should be warm for its weight.

Designed for Barbie
I was really excited to see this vest on sale. I'm always a M in Patagonia tops.

Nice sleek vest, could use some small improvements
This is sleek and nice looking. I appreciate the easy maintenance synthetic. It does run small. I'm a large in Patagonia fleece and could barely zip up the large in this - size up!

Very comfortable keeps me warm enough if Im wearing a long sleeved top
when buying Patagonia tops and jackets, fleeces etc I alway have to buy large. In all other brands I wear a small top and a medium jacket. The large in Patagonia wear is just a little to big but a medium just doesnt feel comfortable.
Response from PatagoniaFebruary 2, 2023
We appreciate your feedback, Patti! The Nano Puff Vest is a regular fit style, while other may be slim or relaxed which could affect which size feels best, depending on layers.
Love this vest
BUT, the large was too small. I must be between L and XL because I have other Patagonia jackets/vests in Large that fit perfectly. The vest is warm but not bulky - very comfortable!

The Nanopuff without sleeves
I always have to size up in women's tops at Patagonia and I am a very average-sized 5'7" female. But their tops run small. I loved my nano puff jacket and thought I would go for the vest as a way to layer on cold ski days. It is great for that! It is so warm and also an easy way for me to look professional at work.
Great for a straight figure
This was a fab vest, but had to return as it is not made for a curvy figure. Too bad. I found another thats Polar fleece thats better, but they definitely cater to taller torsos and narrower hips.

Light weight and warm
I bought this to wear at home and for outside. When it's very cold out the vest is perfect around the house because it's lighter than a sweater or sweatshirt but keeps the chill away.

Had to return...too tight and no give in the belly.
I ordered the XL and XXL vests, and had to return both. Love Patagonia and everything they stand for, but wish some of the sizing had more "give" the XL was simply too tight on my Winnie-the-Poo shaped torso and then the XL was way too large.

Hey Denise, thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We're sorry to hear that this vest is not cutting it for your needs. The Nano Puff Vest does have 60-g of PrimaLoft Gold Insulation Eco 100% postconsumer recycled polyester with P.U.R.E.

Super cute, but tight in hips
I love the colors (I purchased the beautiful wavy blue) and the overall feel of this vest--warm, but light. It fits me great in the shoulders, chest & waist, but I need another inch or two to make this comfortable around the hips. Wish I were a guy, or a woman with no hips--then I could wear this otherwise very cute vest. Sending it back.
Beautiful construction, surprisingly thin
I was hoping to replace my old puffy down vest, so was surprised by how thin this is. I don't usually buy XS, but did after following the sizing guide. It was too small in the hips, where I am usually too small, put perfect in the shoulders where I am usually too large. I had to return it, though it looks very beautiful.

Great, classic Patagonia style
I've had one of these for a decade. Tried lots of others in an attempt to add to my wardrobe. Nothing was right, so I went back to the ideal vest and was thrilled to see it was still in the product line up! So many vests are the puffy style right now; not this one and I know it will last and look good for a long time.

This vest fits perfectly. It keeps me warm. I appreciate the woman's body fit. I love the color. It is perfect for my needs. It is sculpted enough to wear under a warmer jacket, yet it keeps my core toasty warm without. I like the trim at the shoulders helps keep breezes winds out.
Good extra layer for the core
I bought this to replace a cheap vest from a different brand. I like this one better than my old one because the Nano Puffness is not too puffy and it doesn't feel bulky. Good worn over a flannel. It's a little loose in the chest for me, but that means I can probably wear it over something thicker.
Warm - Fit is Off
The fit is a bit snug and long - A two-way zipper would help at the hips vs an interior chest pocket I will never use. The fit from a couple of years ago on jackets/coats/vests worked much better for me.

Hey Susan, thank you for the feedback. We'll share your thoughts on petite sizing with the product team. The Nano Puff Vest definitely works best in moderately cool temperatures.

Practical yet stylish
Gorgeous, rich color (dark ruby) that pairs well. Tailored, flattering fit. Ultralight but still warm. Pockets are well placed and spacious.

We appreciate your feedback and we're sorry the fit isn't better for you. You might try our [Nano-Air Vest](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-nano-air-vest/84277.html) which is "slim" fit but has stretch in the fabric. In addition, you may find a different vest that is a better fit when our Fall 2022 product is released. If so, you can trade your Nano Puff to Worn Wear for some credit! Please reach out to our Customer Service team if you have any questions. We'll be happy to guide you.
Thin material, not enough insulation
The overall vest is too thin , looks cheap. It does not have enough insulations.

Thank you for submitting this review, Theresa. We're sorry this vest wasn't what you were looking for, but happy to see you've been able to return it. You might like to check out our [Women's Down Sweater Vest](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-down-sweater-vest/84628.html?dwvar_84628_color=CNY), which has a little more loft to it, though it's still very light. Please let us know if we can be of any help!
