A better use for that soda pop bottle.

The Patagonia Women’s Micro Puff Hooded Jacket features extremely warm and compressible PrimaLoft One insulation that doesn’t lose its insulating powers the moment it gets damp. Patagonia stuffed this synthetic insulation inside a wind- and water-resistant shell made from pop bottles and unusable or worn-out polyester garments. Quilted side panels give this regular-fit jacket a feminine shape, and articulated elbows ensure that you can plant poles or swing an ice axe comfortably. When the weather gets really nasty, pull up the helmet-compatible hood for protection. Patagonia included a stuff sack for easy packing.

My favorite article of clothing

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I use this jacket for EVERYTHING I do for 3/4 seasons in the Pacific NW. It layers well, works fine on its own for 55-35 degrees, keeps me dry in mist/light rain, washes well, resists tears, packs well, and has a great-sized hood.

Awesome jacket

Bought this jacket for those colder, windier days. Great jacket for keeping warm after summiting, where you usually hit those nasty cold winds. Wore this on a snowshoeing outing at about zero celcius. It packs well and weighs virtually nothing in the pack, being able to snug the hood close to the head also helps. I haven't worn it with a helmet yet but it seems large enough to fit over one. A bit pricy but well worth the money.

Patagonia Micro Puff Hooded Jacket

I love this jacket! It is incredible light for how warm it it. The only down side is how wet it gets in heavy snow, but a great jacket to wear under a shell.

I'm trying to decide between the Patagonia...

I'm trying to decide between the Patagonia Micro Puff and the Nano hooded in the Pacific NW and looking to wear the jacket under my rain coat around town and walking to work, as well as under my ski jacket...what do people recommend?

Responded on

for as much as you want to layer the jacket underneath I would say the Nano Puff might be the best bet for you. It's got 60 grams of Primaloft insulation, vs 100 in the Micro Puff, so it will still be nice and warm, but not quite as bukly under your rain coat or shell.

Would this jacket keep me warm in the...

Would this jacket keep me warm in the coldest days of NY winter? I am trying to decide between this one and the Patagonia Pipe Down Jacket, which appears to be much warmer, but it's also more of a ski jacket and much 'chunkier'...I am very small and skinny and get cold easily.

Responded on

It's more than warm enough for Long Island winters, which are the only NY winters I'm familiar with. It should be good down to about 20-25F depending on how warm your body generally is.

Responded on

Hi! I can totally sympathize with you - I'm also small and skinny so I'm cold all the time too! The good thing, though, is that even the XS size jackets will let you fit more layers underneath than usual. :)

If you're concerned about warmth and trying to decide between the two, I would go with the Patagonia Pipe Down jacket. The Patagonia Micro Puff jacket is warm enough for temps in the teens but not for very much lower than that, especially if the winds are brutal. Otherwise, I would highly recommend checking out the other jackets that Backcountry offers. There are a few other options that are at least as warm as the Pipe Down jacket but at a lower cost. :)

When I first got this jacket I loved it- it's super warm and very light weight. After wearing it for one winter season as an outdoor guide this jacket is practically unusable. The stitching is frayed and the fabric has several tears from minor twig scrapes/etc. My last similar 'micropuff' from a different company withstood the same amount of use and lasted 4 years. this is a bummer patagonia.....

Is this warmer or the same as the down sweater patagonia?

Responded on

The Micro Puff Hooded Jacket is very similar in warmth to the Down Sweater. The Micro Puff might take the edge since it keeps you warm when it's wet, and might provide more wind protection.

These rock

I really like these jackets. Light, compressible, warm, still keep you warm if it's damp. That's why I own 2 of them. They look nice enough to wear in town as well as in the field.

They are not the most abrasion-resistant things out there, but you can layer something over if you need that. They are pretty durable otherwise; I've got a friend who's still wearing the same one after about seven years.

how long is this coat? I'm looking for one that hits below the hips but above the knee. thanks.

Responded on

Dawn, the Micro Puff Hoody hits pretty much right at the hips, just below the waist. There are some other Patagonia insulated jackets that will be in next fall that are more of what you're looking for - Fiona Parka, Downtown Loft Jacket, and Down With It Parka.

I am a jacket addict and I have to say this one is my favorite of all time. I am always a little hesitant to buy things that aren't on sale, but this is one item for which I do not regret paying full price. I wear this jacket under my ski patrol vest on the coldest colorado mornings and to the supermarket when it it is 40 degrees (with a t-shirt underneath.) I get compliments all of the time and I feel really cool, too. I am about 5'5'' with an athletic build, this has an athletic fit to it. I wear medium.

I'm trying to find a S or XS red Micro Puff Hooded Women's Patagonia jacket. They're sold out almost everywhere, does anyone know of a store or any place I can get my hands on one?

Responded on

Yes! Try local stores. There is a place called the Elephant's Perch in Ketchum, ID. I believe that they ship.

This Jacket is Fantastic!

I wear this jacket every day and every where it is fabulous! The blue color is beautiful. It is also super warm. I am always fighting to stay warm outside in the winter and this jacket is great at keeping me warm. It is perfect as an insulation layer or on a dry semi cold day its perfect as a top layer. I love to wear it Bouldering, at the base of a climb, or while cross country skiing.

I want to buy this jacket for my wife......

I want to buy this jacket for my wife... is it compressible enough to layer under her patagonia guide jacket softshell??

Responded on

Its at most as thick as 2 thin fleeces. If her jacket has enough room underneath for that then she should have plenty of room for this as long as you get the proper size.

Karen, yes the Micro Puff hoody is machine washable and dryable.

Patagonia Micro Puff Insulated Jacket

I was kind of hesitant to get this jacket based on the flat picture above. I wasn't sold on the criss cross design, but I loved the blue color, so I decided to go for it. I'm so glad I did! I have barely taken it off since I got it. It is so light you almost forget you have it on. It moves with you very easily, is super warm, and is beautiful! The color is a deep, rich blue and the fabric has a bit of sheen to it. This jacket could very well become my everyday, go to jacket. I'm 5'6", 135ish and the medium is a little big on me, but I like being able to pull my hands in the sleeves and having room to layer.

Would you recommend this Jacket more that...

Would you recommend this Jacket more that the Down Sweater Jacket for every day wear? I am looking for a good warm, every day Down Jacket.

Responded on

Both jackets are great and offer similar warmth, but the Micro Puff might take the edge and be slightly warmer. Both have a recycled poly shell w/ a great DWR coating to protect from wind and water, what sets them apart is the fill on the inside. This is the first year the Micro Puff has had Prima Loft, which is amazing synthetic insulation. Warms up like an electric blanket when you get moving, and keeps you warm even when it gets wet. The 800 fill power down in the Down Sweater is some of the highest quality down, and is the most comfortable and versatile insulation offered.

Responded on

Depends on what you're doing & where you live... The Micro Puff will hold heat even if it gets wet, but weighs 5 oz. more than the Down version. HIstorically, down is more durable & compressible than synthetics which tend to "pack down" with time. I'm not so sure what lifespan of Primaloft is touting, but I'm guessing it's pretty darn good- I've been really happy & impressed with my Primaloft insulated goods (jacket & mittens- currently on their 7th season)
So, for general around-town use, I'd say just go with whichever one you think looks better; for backcountry winter use I prefer synthetic- just in case. Weight-conscious folks would probably prefer the down...

Responded on

Caroline (or whom it may concern, since you posted this years ago... :)
One other consideration for an "everyday down jacket" is that the Micro Puff can be machine washed with any mild detergent, unlike down which should be professionally cleaned, or washed with a front-loading machine with down-specific cleaning agents.

Review Title

This is absolutely my go-to jacket for almost everything! I use it regularly backcountry skiing (climb in a t-shirt or light layer, ski down in the micropuff) and it's the perfect amount of warmth to prevent rapid cooling when you stop, but not too hot to ski down in. It's also a great summer layer for wilderness trips, with the added assurance that it can get wet and still insulate (unlike down). To top it all off, it's stylie :-) I'm 5'7" with athletic build and the M fits best.
