Description

Stay warm and enjoy the winter weather.

Slide the Patagonia Micro Puff Hooded Insulated Jacket over your baselayer top at the snowshoeing trailhead. When the storm clouds roll in and snow starts to dump, pull your weatherproof shell out, slide it easily on top of the Micro Puff, and watch the world turn snowy white.

  • DWR finish beads and sloughs moisture to keep you and your baselayers dry in light precip
  • Recycled polyester shell blocks wind and gives Mother Earth a nod
  • The modest 18-ounce weight means it's easy to stash this jacket in your pack in case you need the extra warmth
  • PrimaLoft Sport insulation maintains loft and compressibility while offering thermal efficiency and keeping your core heat safe from the outside
  • Articulated elbows allow a natural and more comfortable fit
  • Low-bulk wind flap on zipper blocks incoming gusts and keeps them from reaching your insulating layers
  • Drawcord hem helps complete a seal between you and the cold
  • Included stuff sack for convenient storage and transport
  • Internal and external pockets store your small essentials and keep you organized

Great Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I'm 5'10" 158 lbs. medium fits perfect not too loose not too tight to layer under.

Go to, all purpose, super warm jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Very comfortable hooded jacket. Warms quickly, windproof, good for versatile conditions, damp or shine. Hood drawstring pulls conveniently so that it snugs around your ears when hood is up, and can tighten the collar when hood is down (convenient for skiing, etc.).

Tried multiple alternatives, including a smaller version of this jacket and sent them back. Also looked at OR's synthetic insulated jacket and the Mont-Bell hooded synthetic.

Immediately satisfied with this one.

Note on size: I'm 5'11, 150 lbs, wear size 31 pants and 38 suits. Every other thing I own made by Pata-gucci is size small, but I needed a medium in this. Otherwise your elbows will catch in the sleeves and pull the back of the coat if you are active.

Has anyone used this jacket in below freezing weather? If so, how'd it do in terms of layers added with the temp outdoors?

Best Answer Responded on

The Patagonia Micro Puff jacket is a great mid-weight synthetic layer that performs well in moderate winter conditions as an outer puffy. Depending on your level of activity and layering system this should keep you warm between periods of high aerobic output in below freezing temps. With 100 grams of synthetic PrimaLoft Sport insulation, this high quality puffy traps your body heat well and offers superior warmth to weight value for a synthetic layering piece. Though you'd likely get cold using this as your puffy layer below 15 degrees Farhenheit with a baselayer/100 gram fleece/midweight softshell layering system, you can easily incorporate this into your layering system to provide versatile warmth through most winter conditions.

Needs a jacket .he loves this brand thought this would be a good gift. Does anyone know if this jacket it's warm enough without layers? More for dmv area winter weather.

Responded on

This would be an excellent jacket if you are wanting something with decent wind and rain repellency and all weather insulation. A down jacket would be a warmer option but this jacket will still be kicking even when a down jacket has soaked through. Another good option from Patagonia, since we know he loves the brand is the Alpine Guide softshell:

Responded on

This would be a great gift, and a nice warm piece that can be worn with just a T or baselayer underneath. There are warmer jackets offered, but the Micro Puff is a nice balance of lightweight and warm.

How well does the hood fit under a climbing helmet?

Responded on

The material is thin but the design is kinda big, I would say you are better off over the helmet on this one.

Responded on

The Patagonia Nano Puff Hoody might be a better jacket to consider if you want a lightweight puffy with a hood to go under a helmet. The jacket itself is slightly lighter weight and the hood has a more minimalist design that goes well under a climbing helmet.

Would you say that this is good for everyday winter weather? Dmv area weather!

Hey Jen, sorry I just saw your question. It's a great jacket for everyday, too. I take mine everywhere.

Micro Puff

After much size debate, I finally purchased a Med. (5'10'' 165lbs). The fit is good. I have plenty of room for layers underneath as belay jacket, or just wearing it with a shirt underneath without "swimming" in this jacket. The hood fits well with a helmet.

stuck between a M and L. 5'10'' 165lbs. Need it for summer climbs in the cascades. Size recommendations?

Best Answer Responded on

I'd go with the Medium. I am right around 165lb and 5'10 and I wear the small but never layer underneath it. For more versatility I would probably go with the M. I think you will be swimming in a L.

Responded on

I'm 6'1" 178lbs and I fit in the medium without any layers. I'd definitely go with Arthur's recommendation and stick with the medium.

Great Jacket

Im always hesitant when buying clothing offline, but i did well this time. im 5'11" and 165 with a normally deep chest. i got the large and it fits great. i ride bikes a lot and hoped for a longer tail to cover my lower back and this has enough length. But my favorite part of the jacket is definitely the hood. they may as well advertise built in earmuffs because when you tighten the hood chord it clinches on your ears and keeps the hood on tight and warm. this jacket is good for more colder temps then they advertise as well

Responded on

Is the large comfortable to layer underneath, or does it feel too bulky?

Adequate

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Primaloft Sport is a mediocre synthetic insulation and a bit of a rip off. There is an interesting article on the subject that is posted on the cold thistle blog.

Responded on

Dude, do you have one of these? I don't care if primaloft one is better. this is an awesome jacket, and way warmer than a nano puff. the only other item I would consider is the NF thermoball for more money.

Micro puff

This is my favorite jacket aside from the ones I snowboard in. A couple nights leaving work at 4am when it was 0 degrees in Salt Lake I would be brushing off my car and waiting for it to warm up, and I was pleasantly surprised that I didn't feel all that cold in this thing! The hood is awesome, you can cinch it down and you can feel it hug your ears...almost acting like earmuffs too. Packs really small in its stuff sack and is super light. I'm 6' and about 165 lbs and went with the XL. I like my stuff a little bigger so I can wear hoodies under it, and this fits perfectly.

Just okay - Marmot Trient Way Better

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I replaced my Patagonia Micro Puff with Marmot Trient and I'm so glad. Marmot jacket sheds wind, rain and the shell/hood are exactly what I was looking for. Hood is totally adjustable with toogle cords on the sides and back of the hood. I've worn it in ranges from mid 30s to high 40s with just a light fleece or long sleeve tshirt.

Micro puff has limited temp ranges and the hood is only adjustable from the back so, you have to put your head into a kind of pocket. Marmot jacket is more durable, waterproof and great for wind. If you're debating about the Micro puff...check on the Marmot Trient

Warm Jacket

This is a great do it all jacket. It works for layering or by itself. I immediately noticed how warm this jacket is without a lot of bulk. Another nice feature is the DWR coating which beads moisture right off. This is another quality product from Patagonia.

Warm and Packable

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This jacket is a great layering or stand-alone piece. It is very warm and fairly weather-resistant. The included stuff sack is nice and the jacket does pack down fairly small. This is heavier than my Arc'teryx Atom but it is also a few degrees warmer.

Best mid-layer ever!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have always had great things to say about the Patagonia gear I own, but when I bought this jacket I was blown away. I have worn this almost everyday since I bought it. The fit is great (I am 5'10" and weight 165 and wear a medium) and I can layer it under a shell or wear it as is around town with just a t-shirt under and still be very warm. In fact this is so warm that I wear it out in near 0 degree weather with just a t shirt, and I have worn it in snow storms and not got wet yet. I would recommend this jacket to anyone who wants a good layering tool or would like a great jacket for hitting the town. I also love the styling of this jacket and think it looks fresh with anything I wear.
Buy it and you won't regret it.

Planning on a Thru Hike of the PCT, leaving this May. Was wondering if this would be a good option for a insulating piece? I know down is the warmest, lightest and most compressible but I was looking for a cheaper option if at all possible.

Responded on

This layer is a great insulating layer. I have been wearing mine with just a t-shirt down to near 0 degrees F. It packs up fairly small for a synthetic layer and should pack well. I recommend this jacket!

great jacket

My husband got this jacket as a Christmas present and he's been wearing it every day since. He is very content with the warmth, design and feel of the jacket. Loves the string in the hood. He has long arms and this jacket has long enough sleeves for him! Used it as everyday jacket plus for outings in NH (admittedly the weather has been very mild so far this winter).

Best Puffy Hoody Around

This is one of my favorite layers. Great mid-layer when it's really cold or dumping, and great, warm outer layer for crisp bluebird days. I now wear this more than my down hoody. The cut is perfect. I'm 6'4", slim, athletic build, and the Large fits great.

Does this have a smaller more normal hood,...

Does this have a smaller more normal hood, or a big helmet compatible hood?

Responded on

The hood is pretty large. It fits my black diamond climbing helmet but heavily restricts motion. It is still possible to wear over the helmet but just wont be as comfortable. However it doesn't fit over my bern watts ski helmet. Hope this helped!
