By far my favorite jacket. one complaint

This is my favorite jacket I've owned in my adult life. I do have a complaint, but still my favorite. I find it runs a bit big(not my complaint). I normally wear xl at 6'5" 200lbs but after trying both on the L fit perfect. Absolutely love the soft interior, the H2NO exterior and pockets inside and out are everything you want and ... Read Moremore. Weight is light and still warm in the 30's with synching to tighten up if you need it. My criticism- the button in interior is so uncomfortable when you are sitting, driving, etc... I know this is for athletic sport function, but finally after a year of thinking and finding i couldn't unstitch to remove I literally hammered the button once and it shattered pretty easily. I had to manually close a small cut on the exterior from getting rid of my vial enemy button, but now this jacket is basically perfect. If you make an upgrade to this I'll buy another. Please do not discontinue this perfectly balanced jacket... just ditch the back torture button.

too big

l size is too big for me could you recomend me if M size fit me OK? I am 176 cm tall, 80kg, chest is 108 cm,

Great jacket!

Possibly the best jacket I own. It keeps warm but feels light and very comfortable at the same time. I love the big pockets.

Great jacket, love the stretch and warmth it provides. Very happy with my purchase

April 8, 2021

Warm and Comfortable!

I have been wearing this jacket every day to walk the dogs and for short hikes in the nearby forest. Temperatures have been in the mid-20s to mid-30s with bouts of rain, sleet and wind. I've typically worn only a t-shirt and have stayed plenty warm and dry. The fit is a little odd for me, with a perfect fit around the shoulders but large at th... Read Moree waist. I considered returning it for a size M, but thought the shoulders would be too tight, so I'm keeping it. Additionally, I love all of the pockets, the stretchy material and the comfort. This will be a regular go-to jacket for me.

Nano Air wrapped in H2No? It's an instant favorite. Have a L and XL, with the latter for layering. 6/190. Highly recommend

Warm Jacket

The quality and warmth of this jacket is like no other jacket. I wore it snow skiing and it repels water/snow better than I thought. I would definitely buy again.

March 1, 2021

You need this!

I have tested this jacket in extreme temperatures as a shell. This is a great jacket as the outside layer. I really love this jacket.

February 26, 2021

Zips up too high

I'm guessing this jacket is for storms but when zipped up, the jacket covers my whole mouth. Had to return.

February 26, 2021

Best jacket ever made.

Is that title too strong?!? I dont think so. Ive lived in the mountains and cold/snow my whole life, and have been lucky enough to wear some of the best jackets on the market. All brands/all styles. This jacket is super warm, stretchy, light, and dare I say...fashionable.. Seriously though, this is the total package. The window of warmth is about 5... Read More0 degrees. Which means Ive been comfortable in it in minus 10 degrees to 40 degrees +...crazy versatile. Get in on a super sale that Patagonia occasionally does and youre stoked... And Im 64, about 210lbs, longer arms/torso, and the XL fits PERFECT. Gusseting in all the right places. And stretchy too. I use it for all things winter and the only caveat is that the hood doesnt fit over a ski helmet...

February 26, 2021

Most versatile

Best jacket ever I use it for all winter activities

February 25, 2021

Extremely Comfortable

This may be the most comfortable jacket I ever experienced. Extremely light with some giving, which means I never feel restricted. If the temperature drops below 20, a heavier sweater may be a good idea. Overall, I am super happy with this jacket... great job, Patagonia.

February 25, 2021

Very Light

This jacket is very light, both in terms of actual weight and insulation. Have had it out in a storm already and it kept me dry. I like the hood. I expected the insulation to be somewhat thicker or warmer, but so far, it has done the job. The shell material also seems thin, but I have had no issues with it either. This jacket is perfect for aerobic... Read More activity in the cold. I love the pit vents. The fit is a bit boxy, but I didn't buy it for looks. Overall, this jacket suits my needs and I look forward to wearing it for many seasons to come.

Very soft and comfortable, waterproof is a plus

Light weight and warm

This jacket is light weight and warm. Outer material is tough enough to handle some weather. Only suggestion is for the zipper to two way to allow access to belay device. The interior pockets are roomy.

February 24, 2021

Multifunctional, Light and Warm

I just got this jacket a few weeks ago. When I first put it on, I thought there was no way this jacket could possibly be as warm as it is. I have gone out several times to shovel with just a long sleeve t-shirt underneath and have been totally fine. If its under 20 degrees I would suggest a heavier layer underneath. A neck gaiter also really helps,... Read More as the neck piece comes all the way up to your chin when fully zippered. Its great for everyday wear. Looking forward to testing it snowshoeing.

Awesome jacket!

Love the jacket! Almost too warm for So Cal, but great for the mountains or dawn patrol at the beach on cold and/or rainy mornings!

February 11, 2021

Warm, light but sizing is weird

Great jacket. Everything I wanted which is warm, insulated and still lightweight. I ordered 2 sizes, M & L to try on. I'm typically a Large but I went with the Medium. The large was long in the sleeves and big in the chest. Medium was a perfect fit.

February 8, 2021

poopie arm holes

Over the last few years Patagonia has started to shrink the size of the arm holes. Gave it to my wife she likes it. Body is big enough for a moose, arm holes a mouse.

Light and supple.

I'm 5'5 with 5'8 wingspan, 130 pounds slim. I owned Nano-Air Hoody size S which fits me bang on. Stretch Nano Storm looks a fraction loose in same size but will work perfectly with a slim fit mid layer inside. The only concern is Fullrange insulation, which seems discontinued (on new Nano-Air they use Thermolite instead) but for what... Read More reason? I'm quite nervous with synthetic losing loft.

Amazing functionality in an unflattering fit

6'1.5" / 175 lbs / 40R wearing an M. I've used the jacket extensively in the 20 to low 30 degree range and it's amazing. I'm sure it can go lower than 20 and probably up to the 40s if you're just walking around. I've been out in moderate rain and sleet for 2+ hours at a time walking and running the dogs and it&#x... Read More27;s kept me 1) dry, 2) warm when the dogs decide to slow down, 3) not too hot when the dogs want to run (nothing fast, just ~8 to 10 minute / mile pace). In terms of functionality it's got almost everything I could ask for. Waterproof, lightweight, extremely comfortable, excellent range of motion, keeps me warm but doesn't overheat, great chest pockets for running, a hood that can kind of sometimes do an okay job of keeping rain out of my eyes w/o wearing a hat. It's the most comfortable, functional winter jacket I have. As far as fit goes, it's very roomy around the shoulders and arms, and moderately roomy in the midsection. It makes my shoulders and arms look disproportionately large, but I guess this is part of what allows it to have such great range of motion. The hood is quite large and looks pretty sloppy when cinched down enough to fit my head (when not wearing a helmet). I don't think it's a stylish looking jacket, at least for a fit guy going for an athletic look. I can wear it when doing chores around town but would never wear it when trying to look good, it just doesn't flatter a slim athletic physique. Not going to dock it points for that because I'm satisfied enough using it as a purely functional piece. I'm not sure you can find a better winter jacket for pure functionality on Patagonia. For example I also have an R2 TechFace Hoody, much more flattering fit, very comfortable, but it's not gonna do great in moderate rain for more than maybe 20 to 30 minutes (and it's nowhere near as warm, I use it in the 32-40 range). And I have an Insulated Powder Bowl Jacket but it's a lot heavier, less stretchy, harder shell, just not as comfortable to wear on a day-to-day basis where I don't need protection that extreme. I don't fully understand what this jacket was designed for but for my specific use case, I would improve it by attempting to tighten up the fit of the sleeves/shoulders without sacrificing range of motion, add a two-way zipper so there are more heat dumping options, and tighten the hood up + make the hood's visor a bit longer.

It's Perfect

Just came here to say this is the best jacket ever. We bought them ~ 4 years ago for a NYE event in NYC when the weather was below zero and they killed. I had a Patagonia Parka and this was warmer, while fitting better and a fraction of the weight. I wear it as a jacket in winter or under a shell when snowboarding in cold/ wet conditions (it handle... Read Mores moisture well but recommend paring with a shell for anything "wet." Works great, may need to buy another one soon due to even Febreeze's powers having limits.

Jackson Hole Wyoming Tested

This, in my mind, is almost the perfect winter jacket. I've had it for 3 years now and it's everything I need it to be --> durable, very comfortable, waterproof, warm, stretchy, relatively lightweight & breathable. Where Ive seen the best use is skiing. Ive used this thing a lot and it does what its supposed to do > it keeps me... Read More warm and dry. I wear a warm base layer underneath and Im good to go. Additionally, I go on a walk every morning and this jacket has kept me warm down to 5 degrees in a humid, Georgia cold and -5 in a dry, Jackson, Wyoming cold. 2 Downsides: - Hand pockets only keep my hands warm down to 20 degrees. But I usually wear gloves when its that cold anyways. - During crazy cold ski days, I would put the hoodie over over my ski helmet. Unfortunately, it doesnt fully fit. Overall, I love this jacket and it has suited my needs perfectly. Thanks for making a great jacket Patagonia!

November 10, 2020

Exactly what I was looking for

Great jacket - perfect for bumming around and will be awesome on extra cold ski days

November 10, 2020

Fits great and super comfortable

This jacket feels awesome! The fabric is soft and quiet, stretches with your every movement. The insulated hood feels amazing and so does the insulation inside the jacket. I think I could live without the pit zips on this jacket but thats a personal preference.

November 7, 2020

Comfortable and light

Used this jacket as my third layer and to protect me from the elements while hiking a Mt. in Colorado. It came through for me against the wind and cold super grateful for this jacket.

The Perfect Jacket

I finally found the perfect all-in-one jacket for the PNW. Its lightweight, insulated, breathable, and waterproof!!! Though it comes with a hefty price tag, its quality justifies it. The jacket itself is mainly true to size and had room to layer, and I would say that this would keep you comfortable, warm, and dry in temperatures 20-65F with proper ... Read Morelayering. The material is very soft, and the pit zips are a nice feature! Overall, excellent product from Patagonia ️

June 8, 2020

Doesnt fit me

I want to love this coat. The material, light insulation, pockets-all of it is sweet. It just was too short in the arms and tight in the shoulders. I am not normally a large, but I would be interested in a large, but the chest was already pretty baggy on me. If it fits you, I think you will be really happy with this coat.

Bought for commute but use in the Mountains!

Honestly I bought this because I have experience with the nano air and it wanted to mimic the warmth level for my daily driver jacket and combine it with the storms h2no layer. This past weekend I did 20 miles in the white mountains in 0-15 degree F weather and grabbed this instead of the regular nano puff and goretex jacket combo. I did not expect... Read More it to perform as well as it did. With the pit zips I never had to change layers. Granted I run a little cold this kept me warm and I never had to stop for a wardrobe change while on the mountains. The pockets sat above my hip belt which made for easy stuffing of snacks and gloves and it took me a while but I finally realized i had TWO chest zip pockets. Fits my Galaxy S8 no problem, which is a big deal for me at least. Excited to use that second pocket for more snack storage next time! The fabric took some pretty sharp snags from tree limbs as I was quickly decending snowy trails. and didn't even leave a mark, I imagine this will be quite durable for a few years. Best part is I wore it back on the train this morning on my way to work. One downside is the fit for me, but Pagatonia garments are always too long in the sleeves for me so if other items fit you this likely will be easy to size for you! Other downside is obviously the price, although I can't complain about that (re: wornwear) but it looks like it's a lil pricey new. I thought for a minute about perhaps giving it a go snowboarding but I think without the snow skirt it's not really a viable option but SO close!

February 13, 2020

Love the materials used, design could be modified for casual use

Love the silent waterproof shell that doesn't crinkle when I walk, and the breathable full range insulation material used. I would personally prefer a more closely fit non helmet size hood like the micropuff hoody, and a longer visor for rain visibility. If this could be made into pants I would buy in a heartbeat, just don't make them too... Read More baggy.

Great jacket, just definitely not for climbing

I own the first generation of this jacket and love it more than any other piece of outerwear I own. It fits me extraordinarily well with some of the best articulation had in piece of clothing I've put on. This can be hard since I'm 6'2" with narrow shoulders and long arms. It was clearly designed for climbing and a full range of... Read More movement. I saw some of the new colors and was excited to see the improvement in the face fabric so I went to check it out. However, the newer design--while still great in its material and feels possibly lighter than the original--has some of the worst articulation I've seen in a piece supposedly designed for climbing. I wore a large in the older version and do in most items in most brands. The XL had more of ride up both my torso and sleeve than a comparable Nano Puff in large. As someone who likes to use this as a shoulder season climbing/belay jacket, as well as a touring and biking outerwear piece, I was severely disappointed in the new fit. I also agree with the other reviewer who says it's far too tight in the chest. I'm tall and narrow and I had to get into an xl for a reasonable fit for just walking around. The design flaw seems to be the movement of the hand warmer pockets backwards onto the side seam which is shared with the vent zipper. This means that in an XL while at a deadpoint I'm riding up about 5-6 inches on both the body and arm. I suspect this is because the material going form hem to cuff is basically all static zipper (i.e. not stretchy at all). While I understand that this may simplify design, it causes too many problems for a full range of movement. It also obstructs using the handwarmer pockets while wearing a large pack. Another disappointment with the zippers are that they are no longer the PU coated ones , but use a flap to keep moisture out--a cheaper and less efficient design. I understand these design features in a more casual piece where you're trying to build durability and cut cost, but not in a jacket for heavy use in the mountains. It doesn't meet the needs I would like it to so I returned it, which Patagonia is always great about. It gets three stars because it's an excellent jacket for travel and daily casual use--but is definitely not up to standard as climbing jacket.

The End of Layering

My go to ski jacket this year. I'm 5' 11' and 205 lbs. I bought an XL and it's just what I wanted. Goes over anything and fits loose. L is probably the 'proper' size but I wanted the big. Breathable is the concept here, it works. Stormproof. It has taped seams that the web site does not mention. I often wear this over ... Read Morea thin base layer. With a Micro or Nano Puff underneath I feel bombproof. Great pockets though I would like an inside chest pocket. Sleeves plenty long. 23 oz. for the XL. Hood is also big and adjusts well. What's not to like?

Better than anything else

For that magical "single quiver" jacket this takes the prize. I really like my dead bird AR but the lining feels clammy and the face fabric isnt bomber. This jacket outshines the competition in both categories. I used to wear shells due to sweating and how the jacket's lining feels. The lining on this jacket is comfortable and instan... Read Moretly warm, no nylon feel This simply blows away everything else I have tried. Short sleeves for mild temps and the cut is perfect to layer underneath for skiing with a R2 techface and long sleeve base. I haven't bashed the fabric too much but its holding up well to daily use. I'm actively getting rid of other jackets because this one works so well in so many situations. I know we don't talk about it but sometimes I'm not back country skiing in powder or preparing to summit, sometimes I'm taking my kids to wrestling practice and I like to hang out for a little bit. I can keep this jacket on and run around in and out of places and no sweating to death! Since its the "one to rule them all" I bought the Hammond Gold and I really like the color. I do get compliments on it and it goes well with Patagonia's grey color palette.

Great jacket for 40-65 degrees

The jacket is perfect for 40-65 degrees, though with long sleeve t shirt, hat, hood on, and synched Waist I was comfortable below 30 degrees. I haven’t been able to test waterproofing, but it is amazing on windy days. While it doesn’t compress as much as a down coat, you can stuff it easily into the hood. The hood has two Adjustments that made it f... Read Moreit perfectly and the other key is that the hood moves as you turn your head for great visibility. The hood rim could be larger such that it provides more face protection. I love the feel of the materials on the inside and outside of the jacket. The outer material is quiet and doesn’t crinkly like gortex. Great jacket for someone that doesn’t like checking the weather. Assuming the waterproofing is great, then this is the perfect light weight jacket for above freezing weather.

Awesome jacket but too fitted in armpits

I ordered this for my husband because I have the womens and LOVE it! He has been wishing he had one because I am always dry and warm without all the bulk. I ordered him a MEDIUM because that is his size in all other jackets, both Patagonia and other top brands. This was too snug in the armpit area wearing just a T-shirt. He felt he could not wear a... Read More thick long sleeve shirt under the jacket, otherwise, he loved it. Great stretch and weight. The large would be too big, sleeves too long because he is just 5'7" and 165 lbs. Very disappointed, it's going back. For this reason I am only giving 4 stars.

Just what I needed

Great jacket

December 14, 2019

Love this Jacket

Just finished a week of skiing in Colorado and truly enjoyed this jacket. Totally waterproof, wind proof, yet soft and comfortable to wear. It was especially thoughtful that they included soft material at the top of the inside zipper against your face when you need the full length of the jacket to stay warm in bitter, 40 mph wind while skiing. Plen... Read Morety of pockets for maps, sandwiches, keys and cel phone. I found the fit to be ample and not super trim. I’m 5 10 and 185 with a 43 inch chest. I needed the large but could have pulled off the medium with careful choice in under layers. With the insulation, it looks like a jacket vice just a shell. The outer material also looks soft vice shiny and firm. I was warm and powder dry on the top unlike my legs since I had less breathable materials in my off brand pants . I won’t ski again without pants of equal caliber to this jacket. Needed the hood when off the mountain and its adjustable tensioners were well placed. In sum, it seems that Patagonia has put much thought and care in the construction and design of this jacket and I’m delighted to have purchased it.

December 14, 2019

The Best-

I would recommend this jacket for brisk mornings and any wet weather needs where you need to be active comfortable and warm. Love it!

December 11, 2019

Very Satisfied

I purchased this jacket for downhill skiing and ski touring. I am 5'-11" and weigh 190 lbs. The large fits perfectly with just enough room for a "puffy" layer under it. Having received the jacket this week I took the opportunity to see how well it worked in a strenuous situation. I threw it on over a lightweight long-sleeve wool... Read More blend base layer, grabbed my skis, and my wife and I went looking for a Christmas tree. The temperature was in the mid 20s with about 6-8" of fresh snow on top of a firm base. We found a 10 footer about a mile from the road end. My wife and I used ropes tied around our waists to pull the tree back to our truck. I had skins on my skis. The terrain was mostly level with occasional sections of short uphills where we had to stop skiing and muscle the tree up the inclines. I had the pit zips and the front zip open the whole way. It took about an hour of dragging to get the tree back to the truck and my base layer was thoroughly wetted-out. The jacket never felt very "clammy" and when I took it off the inside was slightly damp but still capable of providing considerable warmth. I didn't take it easy on the jacket today and it came through looking and performing great.

Patagonia Nano Storm Jacket

I am 6'-0", 190 lbs. I have the XL and it fits perfectly. I am a bass fisherman and it is hard to find outerwear that fits our needs. We are out in the wind, rain, and cold a ton. When you add the 70 MPH windchill driving down the lake in a tournament at 25 degrees, the right gear is everything. The Nano Storm has far exceeded my expectat... Read Moreions. The most important factors for the gear we fishermen need is it has to be waterproof, warm, and light weight. First and foremost, the nano storm is 100% waterproof. It has survived 10 hours of driving rain not to mention the wind blown rain from long boat rides. Zero water gets through this shell. This in itself is amazing and makes it a no-brainer purchase. The jacket is lightly insulated, surprising warm and breaths well because I never sweat while wearing it. Patagonia has included the perfect amount of insulation because it has the be the lightest insulated jacket on the market. Having a lightweight jacket means less fatigue. The weight of the jacket is very important and this one is exceptionally light. If all of these things are not enough, mine blew out of my boat a few days ago. By the time I noticed it was gone, it was 2 hours later and I was 5 miles up the lake. I was sick because I love the jacket and my truck keys were in the pocket! On the way back to the ramp, I drove the same path and ran right up on the jacket. It was floating on the surface and my keys were still in the pocket. Amazing! I don't suggest you test the flotation of the jacket with important things in the pockets but I assure you that mine floats. If you are on the fence about which jacket to buy, look no further. This is absolutely the right one. Patagonia has done a marvelous job with this jacket and if we could get them to make a pair of bibs with the same shell and insulation, they could dominate the fishing outerwear industry. Insulated, waterproof, lightweight bibs are almost nonexistent. Nano Storm insulated bibs would be light years ahead of any garment currently available. Great job Patagonia.

December 9, 2019

My go-to jacket

Simply the best. Winter steelheading, everyday travel, dog walking, in the shower...seriously, I love this jacket. It’s true to size, breathable, impervious to most weather, and warm enough for a t shirt underneath in 20 degrees. Home run, Patagonia.

November 25, 2019

I like everything about this

I like everything about this jacket except that it has the tightest hips of any coat I have ever worn. I debated sizes and would have had too long arms and too big shoulders had I gone with a larger size. I'm a 12-14 and the large should have been right. Now I'm finding it a little too snug, unlike all other coats I have. So, I wish the p... Read Moreroportions were a little more forgiving.

Great, comfortable jacket. Perfect for mild winter weather or add layer underneath for the colder days.
