I absolutely adore this jacket. Perfect for travel, keeps me so warm when windy and dry during light rain. Highly recommend.

Not as warm as I would have liked

First I need to say I have a mens nano puff in an xl but it had no hood. They were out of the mens in the size I needed with the hood so I looked at the womens xl. The womens that I bought is tight. Apparently patagonia doesn't think stone of us actually have a chest. I knew from my mens that the nano air is stretchy. Still patagonia could do ... Read Morebetter to provide women with a larger chest some options. I love your products and the companies mission. What I want to see is a less constricting fitting jacket and a little wiggle room so I can layer things. Adding some primaloft to the synthetic makeup of the jacket might bring up the warmth. I do get it however size I believe this is built to dump the heat when you are hiking or moving. I just had to have a hood so I went with the womens size. I do have a nano puff and three other companies down jackets. Please make your womens jacket in something above a 43.5 chest and please loosen the fit a tad. I would still recommend this jacket but buy the mens because if my chest size.

Hey Diane, thank you for this feedback. We make our items in a variety of fits: form-fitting, slim, regular and relaxed. This hoody happens to be a slim fit which could explain why it feels a little bit more restrictive than the men's Nano Puff which is a regular fit. You can check out all our women's jackets with a regular or relaxed fit on [this page]( If you'd like garment measurements for any of these items, reach out to customer service and we'll send those your way.

Great overall

Great overall jacket- keeps me warm running but not too warm. Perfect for 40s-50s weather walking and 30s-40s for running. Outside material doesn't hold up great as I had a tear less than 4 weeks of use after brushing past a door at work (in a office) but patagonia was quick to replace which is why 4 stars instead of 5 stars simply for quality...

Excellent all around jacket

This is my third jacket in the nano air line. I completely love them and their ability to provide warmth and also dump excess heat to reduce the swamp factor. This jacket has more of an athletic fit, so I size up to layer underneath. Its my go-to jacket all winter long. It may fit snug when it first arrives but will stretch when worn with movement.... Read More This jacket will not disappoint.

Perfect all around jacket for mid layer and putting through the ringer.

Live this jacket and versatility. It does run small for a technical piece, especially across the chest. I am middle range size 6/M, if I was busty it would not fit to function. As always though quality product that will last.

February 10, 2023

Love it

Love the blue color contrast with the fuchsia color inside. The design is very thoughtful to put a sturdy patch fabric at the sleeve, where material gets rubbed and dirty often.

Please make this hoodie in xxl. I have to send the largest size back since it's too tight. Great quality, wish I could wear it.

Warm and Comfortable. Great Fit.

I'm very much liking this jacket so far. It's very light and and the slight stretchiness makes it extremely comfortable to move around in. I have worn this hiking in mid 30's temps with a base layer and it was warm enough. Not too hot in warmer temperatures too. I have found it to be wind and water resistant. I'm just hoping thi...

Many times I buy women's outdoor jackets because they often provide a superior, almost tailored fit for me. My chest is larger than my waist and my hips are in between. Men's jackets that fit my chest and shoulders are frequently so baggy at the hips and waist that they fail to keep out cold drafts.

Warm and featherlight

I had been wearing this jacket, bought last season, for several months and loved it so much, I bought another one in a different color.

Still super versatile, but prefer older version's fit

My 2015 Nano Air became irreparable after a climbing accident, and I got a new one as it was one of my favorite jackets with its sweatshirt-like softness and all-day versatility. Fortunately, the soft/stretchy fabric, warmth, and versatility remain the same. But unfortunately, the new XS is too tight across my back and lats when engaging my arms (e... Read Morespecially climbing and hiking). (Note that I'm XS in all of my other Patagonia jackets.) There were a few other changes made that I preferred on the older one, but not a breaking deal: no second chest pocket, shorter zipper garage at chin/mouth, no storm flap behind the zipper. I do still like this jacket, but I will have to buy the next size up, so when in between sizes, size up on this one.

We appreciate your feedback and will pass this along to our design team. The current Nano-Air Hoody style was altered in Fall 2019, although both products feature a slim fit design.

We can definitely help you with a different size or explore a similar product. Thanks for taking the time to send us a review, Jennifer!

Not great for curvy bodies

Im a size 28 jean, 34dd chest (150 lb, 54 year old woman). I wanted a jacket to wear running back and forth to the Otf gym during winter and then for the backcountry.

Such a versatile jacket

As others have reviewed, this is a phenomenal jacket. The thickness, breathability, comfort, its all there. That being said, I wish it was an inch or two longer in length for various reasons.

Perfect bike commute jacket

I got this to wear biking to work and it works perfect to not have to peel a layer off halfway home. Im also looking forward to using it hiking, but have not gotten the chance to test that yet. I sized up to a large since Im a bit curvy (145-150 at 5 ft 5 in), it fits a little bit loose but good for layering.

We're truly sorry to hear about this pilling issue you had with the Women's Nano-Air Hoody. This ultra-breathable jacket can experience pilling on the outer fabric if not protected by an outer shell. A great way to manage the pilling if it has occurred is to purchase a de-piller online and gently remove them. We do not suggest using a Sweater Stone on this material as it may cause more harm than good. Please enjoy this [helpful video]( on ways to de-pill your sweaters. We went ahead and reached out to you via email to offer some help with your return. We also passed your thoughts along to our Design Team. Thank you so much for your feedback.

Hey Felicia, thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We're sorry to hear that you felt the color name was misleading on the Paintbrush Red, we'll share your thoughts with the team.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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... Read Moreot crazy about the way the back dips down. I would prefer the back to be cut straight across.

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.

Great Jacket

I’m currently wearing it right now so that is a good sign! Overall very warm and comfortable. The fit is a little snugger than expected, especially in the shoulder area.

W's Micro Puff Hoody

I love this hoody! It is lightweight and incredibly warm. I like the slightly longer length too! Definitely one of my most worn items these days.

Functional but poor quality

I received this as a Christmas gift from my dad last year and was so excited to get it. My excitement turned to disappointment after wearing it a few times. While this jacket is warm and that is its purpose... the quality is not what I am use to from Patagonia. It started to snag and pilling all over the jacket, and I didn’t wear it for any thing t... Read Morehat should have caused this damage, I mainly wore it to work. I’m so sad about the quality of this jacket, I want to throw it out and all of other Patagonia products I have had for years!!

Hi Ashlee! We're sorry to hear about your jacket. No need to throw out all your gear, however you're more than welcome to send the jacket in for a return [here](

I love the Nano but

I love the Nano but wish it didn’t pill. This is my 3rd one and I hope this fabric holds up to my daily wear. I also wish it came in a few other colors but it’s warm and thin & apparently I can’t live without it.

Sorry about that pilling issue, Julie! Our [product care page]( might be helpful. Also an electric fabric shaver or a sweater stone can restore the fabric to its original smoothness. Be careful to close all zippers, velcro and other fasteners when machine washing, as well. If you choose to [return]( it, we're happy to help with that too! Perhaps a Nano Puff, or Tough Puff would be a good choice for that daily wear.

Warm but not doesn't hold up

The functionality of this jacket is great. Very warm when it needs to be but light enough for a warm spring day. I live in Colorado and it got me through even our coldest winter days last year. However, the outside material is not of normal Patagonia quality. I didn't even make it through the first season without numerous snags and pilling EVE... Read MoreRYWHERE. Activity while wearing the jacket was not strenuous either - I'm talking to and from work, grocery shopping, walking the dogs, etc. The pilling is so bad I'm embarrassed to wear it in public.

I live in Interior Alaska and our winters are extremely dry, only about 11% of humidity on an average day. I’m an avid cross country/back country skier and put out a lot of steam on mostly unbroken trails and needed a layer with exceptional breathability and warmth for these conditions. Everything I tried fell way short until I discovered the Nano ... Read MoreAir. I wear it mostly as an outer layer skiing and it’s a dream come true! 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!
