Here's what others have to say...

The perfect windbreaker

The perfect windbreaker

This was taken on a relatively warm day, but winds were INTENSE, making it a lot colder of a day on a fast moving boat. You can see how intense the wind was by looking at the hood (it doesn't normally sit that high). I was super warm and cozy with my nano puff on!

My go-to jacket - warm, comfy, light

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

This jacket is simply amazing and worth the investment. I've owned "puffy coats" for years, but was getting tired of the typical bulk, especially when trying to be active. I wanted something lightweight that I could easily move around in, and something that I could stuff into my backpack. This jacket is both of those things and more.

I've worn this to work (it's classy, esp. in black), cross-country skiing (warm but not too warm, esp. if you just unzip it), and snowshoeing. The temps have been down as low as -20 degrees, and I'm not shivering.

Perhaps my favorite part about the jacket is the hood, which increases the warmth ten-fold. My boyfriend says it makes me look like the "uni-bomber", but who cares?! When I wore this on a boat during a super windy day with the hood up, I felt immune to the wind.

I'm 5'2, 150 lbs., muscular and curvy. And as far as sizing goes, I think this jacket is a little small in some weird spots for me. The medium fit well everywhere, except the hips. The large is better in the hips, but obviously that means it's a bit bigger everywhere else. For me, that's fine, because I like to layer. Just something to consider for all you curvy women.

I'll be taking this Nano Puff along with me on my AT thru-hike this year!

What is the center back length of a medium?

Love this coat!

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

Bottom line: this is my go to jacket for almost everything. Wish I had bought one last season.

I had a couple of friends with nanopuff jackets and have wanted one for a while. I finally broke down and got one right before I left to go hike Mt Kilimanjaro. This jacket has been just as great as I hoped it would be. It is warm, extremely packable, and looks great on the trail and around town. I have worn it as an outer and a mid layer and it functions great as both. I was sure glad I got it for Kilimanjaro. I wore it every day.

In the two months I have had this, It has been hiking in several countries and all around my home state of Alaska. I can't wait to take it out skiing once the snow sets up.

As far as fit, it is true to size. I wear a medium in almost all outdoor gear. 5'6, 145#.

My only complaint is the stitching. I snagged some thread on one of the arms when I was unpacking it from its pocket. Now the thread is a little bunched and I have a loop on the arm. Some friends with the same coat have the same problem. I would imagine that with Patagonia's customer service, they would repair it if I called them. Really doesn't bother me enough to do anything about it.

The hood is also a nice feature :) Also, love the blue color.

Everybody needs this coat!

Wow--Love it! Great Color too

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

I almost always wear a size S in Patagonia, and this jacket fit perfectly--not too tight, not too big. The color (glass blue) is beautiful. I don't think it runs small. I'm 5' 2", 125 pounds, with muscular shoulders. Occasionally I wear an xs in Patagonia, but not often. This size S is perfect.

Best. Jacket. Ever.

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

I purchased this coat after wearing my partner's Nano Puff. His is too big, but it still kept me impressively warm. I'm perpetually cold, so I'm always on the lookout for anything warm and cozy. This jacket is definitely fits the bill. I've worn it around town and out in the woods for a backpacking trip. It handles all cool-to-cold weather situations well, and even when wet, still stays pretty warm. It instantly became my new, favorite jacket. Also, I'm just over 6', and the arms on the Large are actually long enough, something that rarely happens, and the coat fits perfectly. The only downside of this jacket is that it doesn't breathe very well, so I wouldn't recommend it for strenuous exercise.

Strange fit

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

I love everything about this jacket that everyone else does.... But I am always a medium in All brands, including Patagonia... But this jacket is slightly too tight. At hem/hips and then does this strange puffy thing at the chest... I have found Marmot jackets to be too tight at hips as well, but too loose up top...I'm not huge in the hips... Wear size 29 jeans, size 6/8 dresses... This is unfortunate the style is like this in these brands...

It's the best.

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

I love the Nano Puff, the fit is finally right. They added a couple inches to the length and about an inch to the sleeves this year as well as making the silhouette less boxy. The one downside is breathability and for that I like the Arc'teryx Atom better, but for warmth while snowboarding/camping/around town, where I'm not worried about dumping heat, I love it.
It's surprisingly durable for it's weight, I've bouldered in southern Utah in this countless times as well and it hardly looks worn. The internal pocket doubles as a stuff sack which is great for backpacking and it packs up small. It's pretty wind resistant and resistant to a very light rain.

Nano is the new black

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

I can't say enough about how great this jacket is. With just 60 grams of insulation, I bought it strictly as extra warmth for skiing in cold temps but I wear it almost daily. It's perfect as a mid layer or outer layer depending on the temp. I've had it for 2 seasons now, stuffed it in my pack countless times and it's held up through everything. The nano puff is a must have.

Does it compress into an inside zipper...

Does it compress into an inside zipper pocket?

Indeed it does! In the woman's jacket, the interior stow pocket should be on the upper left. When you stash it, there's even a handy little loop so you can hook it on to a carabiner were you so inclined. An awesome jacket for sure.

Hey Matthew,
Unfortunately we will not be carrying this in that color, just the colors shown above. Sorry about that!

Great gear

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My wife loves her jacket... Sounds a lot like the dude below, but she does love it. She wears it all the time for everything we do- skiing, paddling, going out. The zipper broke a few weeks ago (shes had the jacket for 2ish years and has worn it non stop), so we packed it up and sent it off to Patagonia. It just showed up, same duct taped spots and tears, but a new zipper. Great gear, and great service.
