    Details

    Built for the up and the down.

    When your day is going to consist of as much up as down, you need something special to keep you warm and comfortable for the long haul. Conveniently, that special something comes in the form of the Patagonia Men's Nano-Air Insulated Hooded Jacket. The combination of a nylon ripstop shell and plain weave nylon lining offers excellent breathability, so you don't feel like a dog in a hot car when you're hiking, climbing, or skiing, and the FullRange synthetic insulation stretches with you to provide generous freedom of movement whether you're reaching through the crux move or reaching for a tail clip as you rip skins on a windy ridge.

    The DWR treatment on the outer face helps to shed light moisture, and its windproof construction cuts wind on the way down, too. In order to help combat the elements, Patagonia added storm flaps to the front zippers and a zipper garage at the top, so you're not taking a cold metal zipper to the chin every time you move your head from side to side. Stretch material around the cuffs helps to make a seal to fight off even more winter chill, while zippered handwarmer pockets let you warm up your digits when things head into those frigid temps. The hood is designed to be worn under a helmet for next-to-skin warmth, but it can also be worn over a low-profile helmet thanks to its stretchy nature.

    • Protective insulation for start-and-stop missions in the mountains
    • FullRange stretch insulation maintains warmth when wet
    • Light and tough 4-way stretch shell with water-resistant finish
    • Nano Puff brick quilting along sides enhances durability
    • Stretch hood fits close against the noggin and will fit over helmets
    • Stretch binding at cuffs and drawstring at hem locks in body heat
    • Regular fit allows piece to be worn both over and under layers
    • Patagonia has been building gear for the high mountains since 1973

    Actually Works

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

    So many mid-layer jackets like to claim that they can hang for aerobic activity without boiling your insides. I have tried many of the best offerings in this category. Some work alright, but this one is far and away the most truly breathable insulation.

    As a result, I would not recommend it for sitting around at a football game or anything like that. However, it is incredible for around town (transitioning from out in the cold, to excessively heated shops/offices/etc), layering, and touring. I have used it touring a few times now, and in similar conditions that would have me ditching other jackets I've been comfortable keeping my nano-air on the whole time. Then once I get my shell on at the top to block wind, it provides plenty of insulation.

    Oh... and it's insanely stretchy for completely uninhibited movement.

    AND it's soft and supple, not crunchy and plastic-y.

    Maybe money can't buy happiness, but it can definitely make you more comfortable if you spend it on this jacket.

    I never take this thing off

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

    Yes, all the reviews are accurate: This jacket is amazing. It's warm, light, soft, comfortable, and breathable. You can wear it all day mooching around or for moderately high-intensity activities in cold weather. It washes well, and is amazingly durable considering how lightweight the fabric feels. Only downside is that it isn't very wind-resistant, but probably would feel much sweatier and less comfortable if it was. Makes a stellar layering piece. Throw a waterproof shell on top and you're good for almost anything the weather can throw at you.

    This jacket is rad!!!

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

    This jacket is super versatile, it goes great as a casual garment, and it is also a super universal technical jacket.

    Lightweight, and breathable, so it is a good mid-layer when doing more strenuous activities, such as skinning up while backcountry skiing, or doing some sport climbing.

    This jacket is awesome because it is extremely warm for such a lightweight product. It also has a DWR coating, which is fantastic if you do find yourself stuck in a rain storm. Not its ideal usage but will keep you dry if that case arises.

    This jacket definitely runs true to size, and might even be a tad bit big.

    Another feature of this jacket that I love is the hood, again, great synthetic material.

    I plan on spring skiing with just this jacket and a decent base layer.

    I'd say if you aren't sure whether to purchase this jacket or not, I'd say GO FOR IT, you won't be disappointed!

    Finally mine!

      Wanted this bad boy for foreverrrrrrr. Perfect mid layer or stand alone aerobic activity jacket. I own the version without the hoody and it's gone with me on 7 Colorado 14er summit adventures and countless other shenanigans. Other reviews are spot on regarding this product. You can't go wrong and it's a great investment for the outdoors. Sweet deal from backcountry at the sale price and 2 day free shipping! #goatworthy

      Best layer ever

        I bought this on a recommendation from a few friends and have not been disappointed. The outer part is made from very durable material that prevents tears which comes in handy. The temperature regulation in second to none.

        Great Jacket

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: m

        This was a birthday present for my brother. He actually already has a black nano air without a hood that he wears as his nicer looking outdoor jacket. He wanted another that he could use for skiing and camping that he did not have to worry about getting dirty. He loves the these jackets and so far he is really happy with the hood.

        Literally the Most Comfortable Jacket

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

        I bought this jacket last winter (Dec 2016) and I've wanted to wear it everyday since.

        First off, it's light as heck, roughly 14 oz. It's relatively water resistant (but I'd definitely wear a rain jacket over top if the weather is going to be pretty wet). When it comes to warmth, this jacket adapts. When it's cool, you don't get too hot. When it's freezing out, it traps the right amount of heat, ensuring that you stay at a comfortable temperature. If it's REALLY cold, though, I typically throw a shell over top in order to trap a bit more heat and stop a bit more wind.

        The hood looks a bit silly when fully zipped if you aren't wearing some sort of helmet. But, looks aside, the hood will fit extremely comfortably.

        Finally, the aspect I just can't get over is the actual feel of the jacket. It's like wearing the perfect sleeping bag. What I mean is this: everybody loves when their sleeping bag or sheet is breathable yet weighty, soft but smooth, cool but not cold. All of those factors are at play in this jacket. It is literally the most comfortable jacket I've ever worn (and in most all weather conditions).

        It's a bit pricey, but, in my opinion, quite worth it. I'd use it as an outer layer for most of the year, but as a mid layer for the colder/wetter seasons. I'm not sure I would replace a down sweater or jacket with it, but it's a formidable competitor.

        Literally the Most Comfortable Jacket

        Sized Strangely

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
        • Fit: Runs small
        • Size Bought: Medium/ Large

        So, I really liked the jacket. It was light, breathable, and everything as advertised. It would have been perfect, but I was in between sizes. The medium would be tight in the shoulders at any movement and felt tight with just a base layer. The large fit in the shoulders, but every where else it was too baggy (wrist cuffs, sleeve lengths, overall length). If you have trout shoulders you'll probably be fine, but if you're built like a climber and right at the edge of patagonias sizing brackets, then it may be a weird fit for you.

        Best Insulating Layer For Activity

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

        I've owned this jacket almost a year now and it still amazes me what its capable of every time I wear it. It covers such a wide range of temperatures that I almost always bring it. The picture isnt of the Nano Air because I was taking the picture but, you get the gist of the weather. All I was wearing was a Capilene 1 t-shirt, Patagonia R1 Hoody, and the Nano Air. I literally was shedding thin layers of ice off the Nano Air and as long as I was moving you could feel the heat coming from the jacket, really impressive on this day.

        I am 5'8" 185-200 lbs, I thought the large was big for layering, this is the first medium jacket I own. It fits a little tight but, I like that for climbing and layering, its harder to snag on rocks as well.

        Let me know if you want to talk layering options. There is so much out there and its different for everyone! I would love to share with you how I layer for various activities. Feel free to contact me directly.

        Best Insulating Layer For Activity

        Slim Fit - Try this one on

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
        • Fit: Runs small
        • Size Bought: XL

        I'm 6 ft with a 44in chest, returned the large for and XL so I could wear a flannel under the jacket, the large fit snug and didn't provide good arm mobility. I was worried that if it was too snug, the jacket may stretch and wear out prematurely. Another reason I like the XL - more arm length and the jacket feels a bit longer in the torso also, which I prefer. Durability with tell over time, and I will updates issues occur.

        I recommend trying this one on to get the desired fit you prefer.

        Great for high activity

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        The Patagonia Nano-Air is designed for a higher level of activity than the standard Nano Puff. The face fabric breathes better and is softer to the touch, it has less insulation under the arms than it does in the body so that you can stay active in it. I really enjoy this piece not just because of it's great look, but because of the way that it breathes when you are being active in it. I'd recommend this to anyone who likes to get outside and be active even in chillier temps.

        Versatile and warm to boot

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

        I remember when this jacket first came out a year or so ago. They advertise it as the layering piece that will keep you warm and comfortable all day long, no matter how aerobic you are throughout the day. Man, they were pretty darn close on that claim. I have worn this to from the truck to the summits on the blustery days and was never too warm or cold, always about just right. It fits well under a hardshell, and I find that for myself and Patagonia sizing, that there is plenty of room to layer underneath if I needed to. I know Patagonia can vary from season to season, model to model. Even though 2 might say regular fit, it may either have short arms and a long tail. Short tail and extremely long arms. Or long enough in the back but you're swimming on the inside. I have found this to be fairly consistent with the sizing. I can wear a base layer, a R1 Hoody, and this and still feel like I have plenty of room. It is a little tight across the shoulders, but every where else is just right.



        I am 5'8" 170lb with a fairly long torso and wear a medium across the board for the most part in Patagonia. The slim alpine fit stuff still fits well in a medium for me, just less room to layer underneath. The more relaxed fit still fits fine in a medium, just more room to layer or have that new school baggy look.

        Versatile and warm to boot

        Almost perfect

        • Size Bought: Medium

        Got to really test this piece out, finally a couple of weeks ago b/c skiing near Alta. It was a warm day...30's and sunny. I wore the hoody for the shadier skins and it kept me warm but not overheating. I just had a thin wool base layer under. The elastic cuffs let you push the sleeves up which makes more of a difference than I thought it would to cool things off. That and opening the zipper did the trick. Although the fabric feels fragile, it held up pretty well. The only gripe is sizing. I'm just not an exact M or L in Patagonia...and it changes year to year. I have the M and it is a "technical" fit, just enough room for a layer under.

        My go to ice climbing mid-layer!

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

        The range of motion in this jacket is unstoppable! I can reach high, swing a tool, move up, repeat, and never have to worry about being restricted by my coat. It is very breathable and works very well as a high aerobic output stop and go layer.

        Size Up for A Solid Under Shell Layer

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
        • Fit: Runs small
        • Size Bought: Large

        The Nano Air Hoody is an attractive, comfortable layer from Patagonia that's a specialized jacket built for a few particular tasks. It does some things remarkably well, but have some pitfalls that may make you want to look elsewhere for an insulation layer.

        Here are the pros:

        The Nano Air Hoody provides insulation during high octane outdoor adventures such as skinning, climbing, hiking and skiing, where insulation is a must but breathability is supremely important to avoid sweating.

        While out skiing at Copper and Vail, I noticed while doing bump runs that this layer managed to keep me warm (beneath a soft shell) but allowed just enough airflow that I didn't begin to sweat.

        This is in contrast to Patagonia's Nano Puff jacket line, which provides pure synthetic insulation (comfort from about 20 degrees up and higher by itself) and blocks most airflow. For the Patagonia lover, I'd recommend having both the Nano Puff and Nano Air in your layering quiver.

        Let's talk cons:

        Because of its air permeability, this jacket is very comfortable by itself on a windless day or when layered beneath a soft or hard shell.

        But below certain temps (15 degrees) and in wind, this jacket provides little if any protection. In those instances, a Nano Puff or a down layer is going to serve you much better.

        This hoody version of the Nano Air features four pockets––very generous, but it cannot pack into any of those pockets like some down jackets and the Nano Puff jacket.

        Then there is price––for what it does, this jacket is too expensive, so get it on sale. For 200 bucks, it's a good layer. For 300? No.

        The jacket has a boxy fit with shorter than normal sleeves. This is a bizarre choice on Patagonia's part, because this jacket is built primarily to be a layering piece and needs to articulate comfortably with other layers.

        Like the Nano Puff, this jacket seems to be tailored towards guys with beer guts. There's a little too much room around the waist, and you may want to go one size above your normal size (I went from Medium to Large) to ensure that the sleeves don't slide back on your arms while reaching during climbing, or while layered with a base layer and shell jacket during resort or backcountry skiing.

        For a $300 insulation hoody, the jacket design could be improved in a couple of ways––feature thumb loops like Patagonia's excellent R1 Hoody (possibly Patagonia's greatest fleece) to keep the sleeves locked in place during layering, and trim up the waist to more appropriately fit athletic types that Patagonia caters to.

        Wash ME!

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

        I got the Patagonia nano air insulated jacket a few months ago and I haven't take it off.... I really should wash it soon, I just love it so much! I wear it to work, and on cold days when I go skiing.

        The nano-air is ultra-breathable and ultra-light so it is the perfect piece for keeping yourself warm while doing activities. When I first bought the jacket I wore it standing in line for something. I was freezing cold because it was a windy night. If you are looking for a jacket to keep you warm when you are watching a hockey game outside, waiting outside wal-mart before black Friday, or just waiting at the bus stop this isn't the jacket for you. You might want to get the nano-puff. The nano-puff isn't breathable but it will be more wind prof and keep you warmer when you are inactive.

        I am 6'1" 190 lbs and the large fits well. I have very broad shoulders and the medium would have fit well but it was too broad in the shoulders.

        The jacket is water resistant, meaning I would not wear it in extreme weather without a hard shell over it. It will do well if you are out in a light drizzle but if it really starts raining hard you are going to get soaked.

        Finally, this should go without saying, the jacket is not fire proof. While leaving the bar one night someone accidentally burned my jacket with their cigarette. I called Patagonia and they said they could path the hole for me. The only problem is that I like the jacket so much I really don't want to part with it for that long :/

        Excellent equipment

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

        The jacket's breathability, flexibility, and insulation are fantastic. The fit is snug and the hood is well designed, maximizing visibility. I wouldn't use it as an exterior layer in really windy, wet environments, so keep a shell handy. It also doesn't pack as well as the Nano Air, but is still quite good at being light and compact. In the end, one can nearly live in this jacket.

        Pillowy soft and warm

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

        Every time I wear this jacket, I imagined that is how an infant would feel if they were swaddled in a bunch of blankets. Warm, soft, comfortable. I couldn't think of three better adjectives to describe this jacket.

        Man-oh-man... this jacket is a keeper. It performed incredibly well when I did some winter cragging at the Index Lower Town Walls, and I was surprised that I was able to climb in it without feeling like I was in a furnace.

        I lead my rock climbing project in a bona fide blizzard and I was warm without my mobility being affect.

        It repelled bits of snow, sprinkles during a drizzle, and part of a beer that some douchebag fratboy spilled on me when I was wearing this at a nightclub.

        Worth the hype? Definitely.

        New favorite jacket

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Large

        Bought this as an underlayer for touring and what not. Skied a few powder days with a baselayer, this jacket and a shell - was super comfortable. Soft, breathable, perfect cut on the neck/hood.

        Will write more after a few more wearings if something seems off, but honestly not expecting to have issues.

        Where is the patagonia's xs size
        Here's s size are patagonia's xs size??

        I plan on getting something for New England winter hikes. I was thinking either this or the dual aspect. Ultra lite backpacking. Nothing bigger yet. Could anyone give me a recommendation? Not many reviews for the dual aspect, but the ones for the nano air sound good and up my alley given that when I get any exercise I turn into a furnace. Thank you!

        Joseph,

        Both pieces are pretty cool for sure. I'd say your priority should be to get a Nano Air, you'll love it and wear it a ton. Dual Aspect is great, but a little more of a specialized piece. Not as warm as the Nano Air, but offers a little more wind protection with that gridded soft shell.

        Im 6'2" and 160 lbs on a good day and want to know what size i need, will the large be too big? Or do i need the large for the length?

        How does this compare to the Patagonia nano puff. I would be using it for climbing and backpacking/hiking.

        Brendan, the Nano Air would be better for wearing while active (unless it is very cold & windy...then a wind shell would likely be needed over it), and the Nano Puff would be better for rest stops, belays, etc. since it is more wind-resistant. For me, the typical lightweight puffy jackets (like the Nano Puff)are too hot for wear while hiking unless it is very cold/windy, but my thermostat tends to run on the warm side. Aside from Patagonia's proprietary insulation, you would need to look for jackets with Polartec Alpha insulation (Westcomb Tango, Rab Strata, etc) or with venting side panels (Arcteryx Atom LT, etc.) for similar jackets as they are all designed for wear. during higher-output activities. I would venture to guess that the Nano Air is among the most breathable of them all.

        Can anybody comment on whether or not they've experienced any durability issues? I have read elsewhere that the back/shoulders area can pill/tear easily, which would be problematic as I would mostly be using this jacket backpacking and climbing.

        Best Answer

        Eric,

        The Nano Air is definitely a balance of being breathable and lightweight, while still as durable as we can make it. If you're carrying a heavy backpacking pack for hours, this might not be there best choice honestly. And if you're wearing a big pack, you wouldn't be getting the full benefits of the jacket. Nano Air is designed for light and fast endeavors, and is a great layering piece under a shell. So for climbing, thumbs up for sure. I'd lean towards a regular Nano Puff and an R1 hoody for true backpacking endeavors.

        Hello: I have a question regarding sizing for the Nano Air hoody. I am 5'8", 160 lbs, 40 inch chest, 33" arms, slender frame. Would the small or medium be a better fit? I like a slim cut and I don't plan on wearing a thick baselayer, so I was thinking of a small, but would not want any constriction around the chest. My hesitation with a medium size is that the arms or torso may be too long. I usually wear a medium jacket, though. Thanks!

        are there any M size coming in soon ??

        How do they compare against OR - Halogen Jacket (Outside 2014 Gear of the Year award). http://www.backcountry.com/outdoor-research-halogen-insulated-hooded-jacket-mens

        I am split between these two. Need a synthetic jacket for Mountaineering and Climbing

        Appreciate any suggestions



        Thanks

        It will come down to the rest of your system and your personal preferences. On it's own, this jacket will provide more protection than the nano air provided you don't run too hot. Personally, I find that having very breathable side panels really cuts down on my ability to keep my core warm when I stop moving (even with a shell on top). If you are going to carry a shell as well, I'd go for the nano just for that ability to keep warm. If you aren't carrying a shell the OR would be a safer bet.

        Should I get this version or the nonhooded version? I doubt I would use the hood very much but don't want to miss out if it is something people are liking alot.

        How does this compare to the Westcomb Tango (or Polartec Alpha in general)? I'm looking for info on warmth and breathability, but any insight would be helpful. Thanks!

        Best Answer

        The Nano Air really stands in a league of it's own, and is going to breathe much better than any polartec alpha piece. It's also going to have better stretch throughout the entire jacket, as both the Full Range insulation and the nylon shell fabric stretch.

        I am looking for an all around winter jacket for Vermont (think cold, wet, and windy), that will also work for cold weather belaying and ski touring. Hoping to pair the jacket with an R1 for when it gets really rough outside. I am thinking either the Patagonia Nano-Air Hoody or the DAS parka. Any recommendations?

        I'm 5'11" and weigh about 165 lbs. what size would I be for the hoody?

        Hey Zachary,



        The medium should fit really well. I'm 5'10 and the same weight and love the fit. However, I would do a chest and sleeve measurement as well as that is a great indicator for fit. The medium is for a chest size of 39-41 in and sleeve length of 34 in. If you have any more questions about this piece or any other gear, please give me a call at 1-800-409-4502 ext 4446 or email at gconner@backcountry.com

        I'm about the same height/weight and went with a Large because Patagonia jackets usually run a little short in the waist. Arms are a little long, but not obnoxiously so, or long enough that I'd consider exchanging it for a medium. Haven't had a chance or need to use it under a shell to test breathability/warmth, but it fits fine underneath the couple shells I tried it on under. It fits almost identically to the one the guy in the BC.com video is wearing.

        How windproof is it? This is the critical component of any layer used for the realm of the steep.

        Best Answer

        abar,

        The Nano Air is designed more for breathability than wind protection, and hence isn't very windproof. It does well paired with a lightweight shell like an Alpine Houdini or Super Cell. If you want an insulating layer that will be windproof on it's own the regular Nano Puff is a better choice.
