    Ultralight warmth wherever you roam.

    Rely on the Patagonia Men's Nano Puff Hooded Insulated Jacket for warmth high in the alpine when you're climbing or ski touring.

Patagonia treated the jacket's tough, recycled ripstop shell to shed snowflakes and raindrops. The Nano's hood fits under helmets with ease, and the adjustable hem stays secure under harnesses.

    ummm yep.. Love it

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

    I might like this jacket too much.. I try to wear it in extreme conditions like -25 windchill (15+mph winds).. it doesn't work that well for that but usually @ 15degrees F with little wind or no wind I'm still in a t-shirt and I'm pretty warm with the hood up.
    I wear this 90% of the winter and I brought it to the BWCA for a 4 day trip in late Sept, packs very well the hood is indispensable and the main reason I bought it, the hood hands down is the best feature but packsize is a close second. I'm pretty sure I'm going to get another one just to have it in case PATA gets some crazy ideas on changing it. true to my size I got an L I'm 195lbs I can layer a bit with some room to spare I usually don't need to. below 20f with some wind (above 10 mph) a t-shirt isn't enough for an extended period of time. If you need something lightweight for those trips where the temps can very from day to night by 40-50 degrees this works well, its not a winter coat but to and from work it's still pretty good.

    nano puff!

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

    the nano puff jacket is the best jacket i've ever owned - so lightweight and warm at the same time. you can wear this on really cold days and on cool days. throw a shell over this when it is raining and you are going to be cozy and dry. fits really nice considering it's not a slim fitting jacket.


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    • Size Bought: large

    This is a great mid layer or fall/spring jacket when you have warm days but the nights can get somewhat brisk. Its a relatively thin synthetic down that can be worn comfortably underneath a jacket for skiing/snowboarding and packs down nicely for a backcountry adventure or travel. I've had mine for 3 years now, and I've worn it nearly every day for two winters straight.

    1) Light weight
    2) synthetic (continues to insulate when wet)
    3) Packable (packs down into its own chest pocket)
    4) Discrete chest pocket
    5) Cinch cord at the waist
    6) Packable


    1) Regular fit (I prefer a slimmer fit for mid layers)

    Great Mid layer

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

    The amount of warmth that this thing provides is amazing especially with how light weight it is. I use this all the time split boarding and often get to hot even in this on the ascent. I wear it around town all the time too!

    Husband LOVES it

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

    My husband was looking for a warm but not super puffy outer layer. He was tired of wearing more than three or four layers in order to stay warm outside. After some discussions with friends and family, and research online, we decided on Patagonia. We chose this jacket based on its excellent reviews, and this particular one with the hood because we live in Seattle and there is often a drizzle or light rainfall in the autumn and winter months. The navy blue color in size small was on sale the day after Thanksgiving, so we jumped on it right away. It arrived within two business days because we have ShopRunner. It keeps him warm and cozy, and he loves the hood. When it's super cold in Seattle (below 35 degrees), he wears a fleece underneath. Now I want one for myself! Note: the sizes I put for measurements along with this review are for my husband.

    Awesome Versatile Jacket

      This jacket is great for all activities. It's light, packable, breathable, weather resilient and surprisingly warm. I generally use it as an outer layer and with only a t-shirt I'm comfortable down to low 30's. Fitted hood is key as well. This thing really traps in the warmth.

      Always Great Stuff

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

      Like all the Patagonia gear I own, this piece doesn't disappoint. If I were using it strictly as a layering piece, I would've bought a small, but for cruising around town the medium is just right. This jacket is perfect for SLC and I use it almost every day.

      Great Jacket

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

      So I bought this jacket as a gift for my sister's boyfriend, and I have had several myself over the years.
      It is a phenomenal purchase, works great for layering systems as well as an outer layer on warmer ski days. I love the aspect of the hood, especially if I am camping and don't have other layers with a hood, that really helps retain body heat in winter camping settings.
      I found that it runs true to size, and that it depends if you want it to be a mid layer or a base layer, so depending on your layering system the size you are looking for could vary.
      This jacket is also great for casual wear around town and everything like that, it is one of those trendy items out on the market right now as well. But if you are looking to use it in the backcountry it definitely serves that purpose as well!
      It is quite warm for a puffy, but over time if you wash it too frequently the down looses some of its heating properties, so be aware of that.

      Can't go wrong with the Nano Puff

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size

      I've owned a Nano puff jacket myself for about 5 years, I've put it through a lot, it has a bunch of holes in it yet it still keeps me warm. I've used it on many alpine climbs and it has been awesome, might be time for another one. Anyway, I bought the hooded version for one of my cousins this year as a Christmas present. He lives in California and says the Nano Puff keeps him perfectly warm in No. Cali winter so far! This is a lightweight, versatile piece that will work for anyone.

      Great mid-weight

      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium

      If you're familiar with Patagonia, you'll appreciate the fit. Hugs pretty tight, true to size. This one has just a bit more length in the sleeves than other Patagonia gear. Great warmth for anything above 40 degrees and it actually repels water pretty well for short periods of time. The hood works well for under helmet but be warned, you probably won't wear it walking down the street or in a more casual context. Great layering jacket so far and very versatile.

      Great Midweight Layer

        I love my ladies version of the nano puff, so I decided to get my brother one for his birthday. He was absolutely thrilled, and has been wearing it nearly every day in the Montana fall and early winter. This jacket is great for cooler days, but not quite enough on the coldest days in the mountains. I like to wear mine under a shell on really cold days of skiing. I bought him the classic grey in size L, and he said it fit perfectly.

        Patagonia Fit Changes Yet Again

          I love Patagonia gear, but this year's sizing seems to have changed yet again. I ordered the nano-puff hoody based on an old regular nano puff jacket that I bought years ago which is a medium. That jacket fits me perfectly. Enough room in the shoulders for good range of motion, but tapered slightly in the waist so it has a nice tailored fit. I like a more tailored fit for my layering pieces. However the updated fit for this hoody seems to be much tighter in the shoulder and armpit region than my trusty old jacket. Fit great in the mid section but I had to return it for a large. The large is a good fit in the shoulders but more billowy for my liking in the midsection. It's fine, I just don't know why they decided to change the fit of these jackets.

          For overall performance this jacket gets 5 stars for me. I use this jacket primarily as a layering piece under a wading jacket when I go fishing or as a stand alone when I'm camping or bumming around town. For such a lightweight jacket it's incredibly warm and the primaloft gold really does continue insulating even when wet. Don't ask how I know this. The hood on this jacket is also awesome. It fits snug to my head so it doesn't blow off while I'm running the boat and it easily fits under the hood of my wading jacket without me even noticing. Unfortunately, the shell material is susceptible to tears and burns, but I knew with my old jacket that's what I was getting. Tenacious tape does a great job of repairing the shell and limiting fill loss when you get a tear.

          Patagonia nano puff mens jacket

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

          Warmer than I expect. Wore The yellow/gold one deer hunting; more visible to the human eye than blaze orange in my opinion. The hood is great when cold wind comes up..used as layered piece and as a cover garment. Very versatile. Size correctly. Only improvement would be a two-way zipper.

          Nice, all around jacket

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

          This jacket fits me well length wise in all directions. The cuffs stay located at my wrists even with large amounts of movement. I enjoy that the hood is contoured close to your head (I like to keep the wind out). I think that someone my height up to the 190 lb range could wear a Large still.

          Hiking: Denver, CO in the upper 40's plus wind chills of 20 mph and 30 mph gusts around the peak. Other than around the peak, I found myself regulating heat by unzipping 1/3. This was used with a light climbing jacket to help break the wind.

          Motorcycle: 2,000 miles to Denver and back. Many with this jacket on. Worst conditions were low 40's with severe thunderstorms and wind chill from driving 75 mph. This as a base layer again, my light climbing jacket, and a rain jacket. Hands and feet were frozen but my torso was toasty.

          I've enjoyed having this jacket and it saved my bacon! All while being able to pack it into its on chest pocket! Made it easy to justify taking it anywhere! The only reason I gave it 4 stars was because I bought it on sale and am not quite convinced that I would have bought it at full price... Happy trails!

          Best mid layer ever

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

          Works well for activewear, wet, sweaty, windy and even dry:) Second one I've owned and worn, backpacking, bikepacking, hiking, nordic skiing, snoeshoeing, bicycle commuting and every cool/cold day. First one I owned is five years old and patched up from years of extreme use, and going strong. Best designed midlayer ever. Great as outerwear or fashoinistawear too!

          Lightweight hoody for warmer temps!

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

          The XL is true to size but there's barely enough room to wear a midweight fleece underneath. I'm 6' of average build with broad shoulders and XL fits relatively well.
          Bought this on sale in Underwater Blue [teal] and it looks nice.
          Autumn temps have begun to fall into the low 50s and this jacket will NOT keep you warm. You MUST wear a midweight/heavyweight fleece underneath and have to keep moving. Warmer clothes underneath and a shell on top is a Must if you want to keep warm!
          It's lightweight and it just blocks out light breezes.
          You MUST wear something underneath or above it for better warmth.

          The hood fits well without any drawcords but really needs a cinchcord to pull the hoodtop back and it needs a built-in hood visor. The sleeves really need some thumbholes at the end which some other jackets have which pulls the sleeves over the wrist further for more warmth protection. The elastic wrist cuffs just barely forms
          a nice fit to keep out the wind.

          The inside hand pockets are NOT lined, just with the fabric but should block out the wind but won't provide any addition warmth so gloves are needed for colder temps.
          The price of this hoody is similar to a lightweight down jacket (Expensive!) with the difference that down doesn't stay warm when it gets wet.

          This jacket is definitely NOT meant for Cold, windy wintery weather when temps drop into the 40s to 30s. Best to use the jacket as a midlayer for insulation and still wear appropriate winter weather clothing underneath it like a long sleeved shirt and light-/mid-weight fleece/wool under this jacket.
          Maybe if you're active outdoors will this jacket keep one warm but not if you're NOT active outdoors. It should NOT be worn as a top layer for True winter wear.
          Wear a down or other insulated jacket/coat instead to keep warm but can use this jacket as an insulating layer in place of a fleece/wool jacket/sweater.
