Patagonia Women's Nano-Air? Hoody

May 5, 2022

Now my Favorite

I tried to order this jacket previously not refurbished/recycled but none left. I have nothing but good to say. The color is magnificent and not too hot, not too cool. Perfect!

March 22, 2022

Magic coat

Its warm when you need warmth and yet never too warm. Lightweight, soft, blocks wind, and looks good. Needs a bigger size if you are big in chest.

March 21, 2022

Very comfortable

Super warm, light, form fitting and is not at all binding. Love this coat!

February 24, 2022

Perfect for travel

Perfect for travel I needed a warm layer for a trip. Im only allowed 15kg for luggage. Its super lightweight, packs up nice and small and a cozy layer for cold mornings and nights.

February 8, 2022


I had the older version that ended up pilling. I took it into a store to see what could be done about it, they said they had reworked the new version of the coat and they would replace it for me, which was really generous. Well, I wish I would have read all the reviews first. That coat was my go to, super warm and really cute. The new one is freezi... Read Moreng. I have to layer with it now, where as I didn't before. Its almost like I am not even wearing a jacket. The cut is weird and long in the back. Its very thin compared to the older version and I am so sad I gave up that old coat. I would take the worn pilled version back in a hear beat. This was so disappointing. I was told it "was the same coat, but better" and that is NOT true.

Hey Andrea, thanks for the review. We're sorry to hear of your disappointment with the redesign on the Nano-Air Hoody. The warmth of this jacket shouldn't be any different from the older version. These were the changes that were made: the fabric is now 87% recycled where as before it was 0%, it has better next to skin feel and improved pilling resistance, the insulation is now 40% recycled where it used to be 0%, it's now Fair Trade and Bluesign certified, and lastly it's 10% lighter. If your heart is set on an older version, we do have some posted on our Worn Wear website which you can check out [here]( If you're not seeing your size or a color you like, we recommend checking back because we add to inventory every day.

Loved the older version

I am a big fan of this jacket concept and loved my original one. I replaced my older version (after many, many days of use and eventual fabric tears). I was surprised at how poorly this one wears. It has lots of pilling and looks shabby. My older one does not have pilling at all! It was incredibly durable and just perfect for xc skiing, ski touring... Read More, and as a causal layer. Im not sure what to think.

Prefer Older Version

I have an older version the W's Nano Air Hoody which I love and use all the time, so I wanted to buy an extra one. This current version is styled differently and does not fit the same. I bought a size XS as my other one is an XS, it was too tight and sleeves too short so sized up and bought a small. The small is too big, has a weird drop down ...

Too cold for me!

I am 5ft, 103lbs and bought xxs for cold weather field work - moderate hiking with frequent stops. Although it feels very cozy (but hips slightly too tight), this jacket dumps heat a little too well for me for cold weather wear. Anything below the 40s and I was just too cold, even with a decent base layer and fleece vest beneath. I found myself wea... Read Morering this indoors (at 65 degrees) during winter as a cozy outer layer, but then its no different from a fleece - just much, much more expensive This is definitely more of an appropriate jacket for cool weather (spring/autumn) active work, such as running.

January 14, 2022

Not warm enough unless high activity

I bought this as a jacket for winter field work - moderate hiking with frequent stops. Unfortunately, it does not keep me warm enough. Anything below 50 while standing still and I am far too cold wearing it. Although it is super comfy, it provides about the same warmth as a standard fleece, which is far less expensive. I imagine this would be nice ... Read Morefor a runner during cold autumn or winter days. I will return it for something warmer.

Nice Layer

I ordered a large because there was no medium. Its definitely a loose fit but that will be fine for extra layers underneath. For reference I am 59 and 150 lbs. My only issue with the jacket is I got it in paintbrush red and it is orange. The picture made it look like it was red with a hint of orange but it is straight up orange. Love the jacket but...

Great lightweight jacket

I love the Nano Puff Hoody. I own two. The non-shiny material is breathable and durable and I like the way the hood is streamlined to fit my face.

This is not designed for women

I sincerely wonder - who could design something like this? Such an odd fit. 1 - Very bulky in the arms and shoulders. 2 - Extremely tight everywhere else. I have very narrow hips and this jacket is so tight I could hardly zip it in the hips area. But if I go one size up then the arms/shoulder area will look humongous! It really looks like it's...

Runs small in arm length

I wear size small in all Patagonia jackets and tops. This jacket in small runs very short in the sleeves. I returned it and did not exchange it for medium as that size is too bulky in the body.

Thanks for the feedback Erica! Sadly, this is one of the longer sleeved items in a size small. We're happy to discuss garment dimensions with you prior to purchase so you can make an educated decision.

Returned. Disappointed with the quality. Runs very small

Response from Patagonia

Thank you for your feedback on the Womens Nano Air Hoody, we are sorry to hear that the item did not work out for you. This jacket in particular is a Slim Fit which can run a bit smaller the other items. We can always be reached at 800-638-6464 to discuss fit.

Good, but flawed

I have the original jacket. Very breathable and sufficiently warm for everything but full on winter. Mine held up fairly well, but you have to consider the fabric and not expect miracles. The piped sleeve ends on my jacket bagged out, but it looks like they've changed them on the newer version. It also looks like Patagonia is up to their n...

August 16, 2021

Hey there! Thanks for taking the time to write this valuable feedback. We redesigned our Nano Air Hoodies (for Men and Women) to have sleeker cuffs for more versatile coverage and comfort - these are low bulk, snag-resistant, and the elasticized hem seals in warmth. With that said, if this one isn't meeting the mark for you, we welcome you to [send]( it back to us and/or check out for lightly used, past season versions of the Nano Air!

Great lightweight jacket

I love the material of this jacket - it's very soft, moves with your body and doesn't make noise like a regular puffy would. It's not the warmest jacket, but that makes it good for high output activities and spring/desert evening temperatures.

May 11, 2021

Perfect jacket!

Love it! It is so light while also keeping me warm

April 26, 2021


I ordered it big so I can have layers underneath it. I love it and its warm.

Poor quality but breathable

This is my first Patagonia product I have ever bought and I am very disappointed. I bought this jacket because it´s made of recycled material, light and warm. However, after a one day trip with light backpack (22 l) the material in the armpit and belly area is damaged -full of pillings. I am aware of that, this damage could be caused by the untight... Read Moreed backpack straps, but I set it as usual. I do usually several days backpacking and it had never happened to any of my old weared jackets. By wearing this product, I must be super cautious with my backpack and trails, because it got easily snagged. I can´t imagine to wear it for the climbing. In my opinion, the material is too delicate for outdoor jacket. On the other hand, its good as mid-layer - comfy and breathable.

Response from Patagonia
April 21, 2021

Thank you for the review on our Nano-Air Hoody. We're sorry to hear that it hasn't lived up to expectations. You're correct about the backpack, any repeated friction will eventually lead to pilling. We do have some jackets with a tighter weave that would not pill as much, such as our [Women's Micro Puff Hoody](, though it won't be as breathable. Your satisfaction is our priority so if you find you're ultimately unhappy with your purchase feel free to send it back.

April 20, 2021

Warm and comfortable

This jacket is amazing! Great for the fall and spring weather in Colorado.

April 14, 2021

Not as good as the old design.

I have an older version (circa 2018) that I LOVE and have taken to task in all kinds of outdoor settings. The new jacket is more of a slim fit, and oddly longer. Its tighter in the arm and chest area doesnt accommodate the same layers my older one does. It only has one chest pock and the sleeves and hood have been redesigned. Still the same price t...

We're so sorry that the new design didn't work for you. We do really appreciate the thorough feedback on the fit.

Perfect weight and warmth

I just love this is good in 20 degrees or 50 degrees. I particularly like the upper pocket and the hood.

March 15, 2021

Lightweight & Warm

Love this jacket! Warm and Lightweight with a hood and perfect for my runs, biking, work, etc. If I want a fitted look I purchase medium, however, for a roomier casual look I size up to large in case I want to layer underneath. Worth the money!

March 11, 2021


I love this jacket for cool spring and fall days. Perfect warmth and comfort.

LOVED the Older Version of This Jacket...

I recently wrote a review about this jacket raving about how much I love it. That model was from 2018 that I got on Worn Wear. I then purchased a newer 2020 model of the Nano Air, and I am disappointed, to say the least! Compared to the older model, the 2020 version is baggier in weird places, has cheaper zipper pulls, is thinner (NOT as warm), and... Read More they removed the cinch waist section. I have used my 2020 this year and it is not as warm as my older version and I will be returning it. Please bring back some of the 2018 qualities of this jacket because that is the BEST jacket I own! I've told everyone to buy this jacket, but only if it is from 2018!

Breathable, warm layer

This jacket is great for Nordic skiing, backcountry skiing and winter cardio sports. It's very lightweight and comfy. It also fits nicely under my alpine ski shell for a breathable layer.

February 15, 2021

So warm and comfy for Nordic skiing

This jacket is a miracle. I was at first worried it wouldnt be warm enough because its so lightweight, but its perfect for Nordic skiing. Keeps me warm and comfortable while skiing in temps down to -5 F!

February 9, 2021

Welcome Back to my Closet

I owned the original Nano Air Hoody when it first came out and loved it for the way it was designed to be breathable and support a wide range of temperatures. But it was a bit delicate and pilled easily. Over time I replaced it with a micro puff hoody. However, I missed having something breathable yet warm. So I recently purchased this revised vers... Read Moreion and will be trying it out again for backcountry/xcountry skiing, cool/cold weather hiking, and everyday wear. For the moment I am giving it 4 stars until I see whether revision has made it a bit sturdier. I wear a small in most Patagonia clothing. However, there are a few jackets or vests where a medium is better for layering; and this is one of those. So if you are between two sizes, pick the larger.

January 21, 2021


I was looking for a layer that could keep me comfortable through a range of temperatures while hiking, provide good water and wind resistance, and serve as an easily packable warm layer while traveling. This fits the bill. So far, Ive taken it winter hiking in Gila (temps ranging between 30 and 60 degrees F), and it provides good protection against... Read More the wind and light precipitation. Running against some of the aggressive plants didnt create any snags or visible damage. Since the jacket is very expensive for me, I did my research before buying it. Some of the reviews said the jacket wasnt very weather resistant, but I beg to differ. A few of those reviews tested the jackets ability to resist water after being sprayed point-blank with a pressurized water hose and its ability to keep the wearer warm while standing still in a blizzard at -20 degrees F. This is obviously not that kind of a jacket. Its not a hard shell. This jacket falls more into the mid layer category, though it could serve as a winter coat with sufficient layering beneath. Id like to add that I tested the jackets water repelling abilities before removing the tags by putting it on then running the sleeve under the faucet for a few seconds, and my arm remained dry.

January 13, 2021

Breathable AND warm

I bought this jacket in black because my kids were making fun of my teal one after overwearing it for many years...Now I still get to benefit from its utility (mostly use it for nordic skiing and hiking) and pass my children's fashion critique. I never overheat it in, even while skate skiing. It's super breathable yet provides warmth when... Read More needed. Probably the best outdoor layer I own. Wish I had it in the 90's!!!

Tight under arm pits - very awkward

I consistently wear a small in Patagonia jackets and they usually fit perfectly but this has such a strange cut. It is super tight under the armpits. Really uncomfortable. I definitely would not buy until Patagonia fixes the cut. Vastly different fit than all other Patagonia jackets that I've ever owned? Love the material technology and functi... Read Moreonality but I will have to return this one and await a fit upgrade. It doesn't exactly run small. The rest of the jacket fits just fine. It is only under the armpits like the arm hole is really tiny. I have skinny arms and a small chest. Inexplicable design.

December 11, 2020

Love this jacket but a little to slim fitting

This is my second nano-air, so yes I love this jacket. As a skier is the PNW, I need a jacket thats warm, breaths well and can hold up in a wet environment, which this jacket does wonderfully. However, they have changed the fit quite a bit to be more slim/form fitting. The small still fits but very snug.

December 10, 2020

Love This Jacket! (after being weary)

At first, I was so weary of this jacket after my friend raved about it. I didn't understand how the technology worked, or how warm it actually was. After doing research, I bought it to go under a ski shell. The second I put the jacket on, I was amazed at how warm it was, even without a shell. I love the way it looks and the stretchy material. ... Read MoreThe only reason I gave it 4 stars was because the back is slightly tight and the upper arms are a little baggy. Other than that, I can't wait to try it out on the mountain!

December 1, 2020

Warm, comfortable, breathable.

So warm and cozy without being bulky. Breathes well when exercising. Love it!

November 18, 2020

Love it!!!

This is my absolute favorite jacket!! It fits like a glove. Im 510 and apx 145 lbs. I highly recommend this jacket. Its worth the money.

October 16, 2020

Nice and Warm

Overall l really love this jacket the large allows me to wear a baseliner and still be comfortable. l weigh 153 pounds and the jacket is perfect, definitely will buy another one in a different color.

September 10, 2020

Great fit but loose cuffs

Love this jacket! The color was exactly as pictured and it held up through multiple days of camping and hiking without getting stinky and kept me just the right temperature. The only downside is that the cuffs are pretty wide and unless you've pulled them over your hands or pushed them up on your forearms they're a weird fit. I wish there... Read More was an elastic pull string or something to tighten them up, but even with that caveat, I'm still super happy with this purchase.

July 7, 2020

Comfortable and versatile

I love the weight of this jacket as it can be used during any season. I also find the stretch to be one of its best attributes. Perfect for ski touring, or doing anything active outside.

Where did the zipper baffle go?!

My boyfriend loves his Nano air hoody (2015 version) and he wears it everywhere. He has been telling me to get one for ages so I finally took the leap and bought the cobalt blue in a size medium. I am petite - 5'1", 120lbs but had previously tried on a size small and it was so tight (as a slim fit item) across the shoulders and the waist ... Read Morethat I decided to go with a medium. This should also allow me to layer an R2 or something underneath if necessary. It fits okay-ish and I love how quiet the material is compared to ripstop. The biggest issue I have is that this new style of nano air doesn't have a zipper baffle. I live in the midwest and am really nervous to see how the wind will cut straight into the jacket through the zipper this winter when temps dip to -10F. Additionally, having a cold zipper rubbing against your face is never pleasant and the zipper garage just isn't big enough to afford much protection when temps drop and snow flies. My down sweater and his 2015 nano air both have a zipper baffle but this new nano air does not! Bring back the zipper baffle please! I don't want an icy cold zipper on my face and neck and cold air cutting into my jacket!

June 24, 2020

Sleeves run really large

The fit on the Nano Air after Fall 2018 does not agree with my body type. It makes me so sad since I love the feel an functionality of the jacket! The sleeves are much too big in the bicep area and they are super long. It is unflattering. I wish the fit would accommodate bigger bust and hips while having thinner/ shorter sleeves.

Fits awkwardly in shoulders/armholes

My husband and all our climbing friends have a nano air hoody and everyone says it's their favorite jacket and wears it on most any occasion. I am last to the party because past season versions have been unflattering like a marshmallow man on me. This is the first season in awhile that I think the stitching is nice and the cut looks flattering... Read More. At 5'2" 105 lbs i wear XS consistently in all my patagonia jackets (including my nano air hybrid). This one however fits very awkwardly in the shoulders--it feels too tight all around the armpit holes, shoulders, and chest. I feel like movement is therefore restricted and it causes a weird sloped-shoulder silhouette on me. The wrist holes also feel noticeably tight. I am sad that I've never found a season of nano air that fits me! Is it just a sizing issue and it runs very small, or is it just still not right for me? i'm not like super buff or anything!

May 1, 2020

Warm But Breathable

I used to wear a Nano Puff Hoody for my insulating layer when hiking or climbing. It was warm but not breathable. The Nano Air Hoody is both warm and breathable, and I'm glad I made the switch! The Nano Air Hoody is also form-fitting, which is not only flattering but also practical when engaging in sport. I deducted one star because I'm n...

Great for Running!

I absolutely love my Nano-Air Hoody and I plan to buy another one. I have a petit upper body and the XXS is perfect. Love the cut, fit, close fitting hood, weight - perfection! Please don’t change it or stop making it! And please add more XXS on more styles of Patagonia! Thanks!

Perfect second layer for multiple activities. Great style, fit and weight!

Best Jacket I've ever owned

I actually purchased the Men's Nano Puff for myself. I liked it so much that I got one for my girlfriend as well. Super Comfortable, can be worn on its own or as a layering piece. All in all, a fantastic jacket.

Can't test it on trail

Can't test it on trail because it would get sweaty, then I can't return it if it doesn't meet my expectations. Can only wear it around house and yard. Bought it for its advertised breathability. Fit is good for my 5'2", 110 lbs., soft and supple on skin, highly packable and compressible, lightweight. I will not have to carr... Read Morey a bigger backpack to accommodate this. Fabric is supple enough that when partially unzipped, zipper top ends flex downwards, thus not poking up into my face or obstructing my vision when looking down at hiling trail, as with stiffer jackets. I wish the hood fitted over a helmet instead of only under. There isn't time while climbing to remove helmet to put the hood up or down. Pink color is easy to find in a dark backpack or in a dark tent.

I live in Interior Alaska and our winters are extremely dry, only about 11% of humidity on an average day.

A perfect combination of breathability, warmth and stretch for unrestrained movement. It’s super comfortable, light as a feather and layers very well. I wore it with only a Capilene Air baselayer underneath and was happy all the way down to -5F while moving. (I’m in my early 50’s now, I bet it would have kept me fine with only one extra layer down to -20F when I was younger!). It equally performs well in warmer temperatures; at 30F I just wear a Capilene tank underneath and am good to go. A simply outstanding jacket!
