Lighter than a wisp of air but strong enough to stand up to a stiff breeze.

On its own or as a layer, the Patagonia Women's Nano Puff Insulated Jacket will keep you warm and shielded from the wind. A tough shell made from recycled polyester keeps wind out, and resists scrapes and scratches from your rough-and-tumble day on the mountain or on the subway. Squish the Nano Puff into its internal chest pocket and stuff the whole thing in your backpack, or  clip it on the outside of your pack, using a biner, for immediate access.

  • 22D recycled polyester shell provides durability at a light weight so you can scrape along the mountain and your jacket remains intact
  • Deluge DWR finish repels water from shell surface
  • Lap-glued seams reduce the jacket's overall weight and eliminate needle holes to minimize water penetration
  • 60g PrimaLoft One insulation offers stand-alone or layering warmth with minimum weight and maximum compressibility
  • Brick quilting pattern keeps insulation in place so you stay warm all over
  • Regular fit to accommodate layers underneath
  • Elasticized cuffs keep wind and water out without cutting off blood supply to your hands
  • Drawcord hem seals the bottom off from intrusive wind so you don't get chilled
  • Zipper garage offers the zipper a place to rest other than against your chin
  • 2 zippered hand pockets with zippers safely hold a season pass and some lunch money, cell phone and keys, or extra calories on day-long ascents
  • 1 internal zippered chest pocket with reinforced carabiner clip-in loop does double-duty as a stuff sack, so you can take this jacket along without taking up space in your pack or around your waist

Fantastic coat!

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

This coat is feather light, has wonderful wind protection and is extremely warm! I would recommend it to anyone with hesitation.

All-around versatile jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 5"
    Weight: 135 lbs
    Size Purchased: Small

I had been eyeing this jacket for years, honestly, and am so glad I finally snagged it on sale. I hiked to Machupicchu last fall and my friend had this, and I remember envying how always-perfect it was as a layer or alone over a shirt. It is surprisingly warm despite how thin it is and feels - and it even bunches up to store/pack super tiny into its inner pocket (love that!). The one thing I initially didn't love was that it felt a little tight at the armpits - but honestly after wearing it more I didn't even notice that. If that might bother you - or if you want to be able to wear a thicker sweater/sweatshirt layer underneath, I'd suggest sizing up. I got the red and I love it - changes things up from all the black outdoor layers I have! Another huge win for Patagonia - go for it especially on sale!

Super versatile and attractive

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 8"
    Weight: 180 lbs
    Size Purchased: XL

Five members of my family now have this jacket because it is just so great. It's lightweight but warm, compresses into a size that fits in a large purse, and perfect for travel when you don't know what conditions you'll meet. In South Carolina it's all we need in winter, but northerners might want something heavier. Patagonia women's sleeves run long and I don't think their clothes are for apple-shaped people, but if you don't have these two concerns, this is a perfect jacket. We have grey, royal and khaki jackets, all great colors.

Runs small

  • Fit: Runs small

I ordered this jacket on 2/13/15. Loved the style of the jacket but was disappointed in the fit. I wear between an 8 and 10 and with reading the reviews chose to go with the Medium. I will need to return it but will definitely buy the Large.

Great jacket but sizing issues

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

I've heard nothing but great things about this jacket over the years, so I was stoked to receive one as a Christmas gift this year. I'm 5'3.5" and 143 lbs, and normally wear a size S or M. After reading some reviews, I went with a M nano puff to ensure that I could wear layers underneath. The quality is fantastic, the cobalt blue color is stunning, but the sizing is a bit off for me. This jacket probably fits true to size and is flattering on anyone who is fairly slim. I, however, am slightly curvy, with wider hips and thighs. While there is plenty of space for movement, the jacket hugs my hips and seems a bit long in the torso. I tried on a size S for comparison, which had a better torso length, but the hip area was even tighter and I wasn't sure I could layer anything underneath it so I stuck with the M.

On a scale of 1 to 10, this gets a 1000.

[review of both Men's and Women's nano-puff]. I'd pay double for this jacket. I bought this for my husband for Christmas last year. He wears it anytime it's below 50. He wears it under his ski jacket to keep toasty. He wears this cool summer nights. He wears it CONSTANTLY. I was so jealous of his jacket that this Christmas, I demanded the womens nano-puff. I wear it ALWAYS. I already had their down sweater. They are two completely different and both totally awesome coats but if I had to get just one, it would be the nano-puff no contest. The fit is flawless. It looks sexy on both men and women. Really flattering, nice enough to wear out to a more formal event as a coat (not too formal) and light as a feather. This is perfect in your pack on a day when the weather calls for -2 Lo and 36 High and you're just not sure? Throw this in your pack (or if you're like many embarassing ski dads, mine included, shove it down one of your jacket sleeves until you want to put it on...) Fits true to size, comfortable enough to sleep, ski, date and live in, easy to wash, warm as all heck. Patagonia nailed it with this one. Can I really only give it 5 stars?

Unanswered Question

Can someone tell give me a measurement of a women's Large in the waist and hip areas. I just returned the Patagonia down shirt jacket because it is too snug. I have the pullover nanopuff and the large fits fine (perhaps it is less-fitted than the zip front).

Best nano puff ever!

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

This is the best jacket for around town, on the way to the mountain, at the mountain, hiking, skiing, biking. It does it all!

Super warm and comfy!

Everybody needs a nano

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

This isn't my first nano, and it won't be my last.

I use it almost everyday, for hiking/ backpacking, rock climbing, ice climbing, skiing, snowshoeing, as the perfect amount of warmth under my rain jacket on a long walk to work in Portland, OR, and to go out to a concert on a chilly night (it stuffs into my purse, and could probably stuff into your fanny pack to if that's how you roll).

I bought a small and it fits perfectly, however, I am a medium in most other items, so I would say it runs big.

Take home message: this jacket is the perfect amount of added warmth for almost any activity, it packs away, and it's not bad looking either!

Get one.

Great fit and versatile jacket!

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

I tried this on in a Patagonia store and loved it- but they didn't have the color I wanted. I got the dark currant and it's great. Opposed to other reviews I saw I love the brick look of the stitching and it was one of the main reasons I bought it. I think the rounded stitching on most other brands right now is terribly unflattering and just makes anyone look huge. This jacket is slimming in my opinion especially for a down style puffy jacket. It is very lightweight but still warm. I have worn it bike riding and it provided plenty of flexibility, walking, going to work etc. I've worn it comfortably in about 30 deg. to 60 deg. so far (fluctuates a lot in New England!). I find it to be stylish enough to wear around Boston, at bike races etc. most versatile coat I think I've ever owned. I really like the two side zipper pockets (zippers aren't uncomfortable if you want to warm up your hands) and the inside zipper pocket that doubles as the pouch is awesome. Definitely recommend it, well worth the price!!!

What is the center back length of a medium?

Great jacket

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

I ordered the Nano Puff jacket and it arrived two days later just in time for a cold snap. It is lightweight, but very warm. It takes up almost no room when packing it. It is comfortable and attractive.
Love it!

Surprisingly toasty

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This was an integral part of my gear for the Inca Trail trek where temperature changes were the norm, sometimes within the span of minutes. I got a medium since I was anticipating that I would be wearing layers underneath. It is looser I'd have been fine with wearing layers under a small. However, it didn't bother me much since I was very warm with the jacket, a half-zip baselayer and a t-shirt. There is an elastic-drawstring at the hem which I used to make the jacket look a bit more fitted.

For reference the evening temperature dropped down to 32F (wore the jacket plus 2 baselayers to sleep) and it got very windy and foggy at the top of Dead Women's Pass, a little under 14k ft elevation.

The jacket performed beautifully in the cold and wind but I wouldn't depend on this for wet weather. It's water resistant for misty weather but will probably get soaked pretty quickly with downpours. I wore it underneath a rain jacket and stayed warm and dry.

A go-to wind-jacket for outback & city

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

This jacket has an incredible warmth-to-weight ratio. It was my go-to jacket for overland travel in Tibet - it effectively blocks 50-mph winds on 16,000 foot passes, then compactly stuffs into a day pack as the day heats up... then it comes out looking like new. No wear problems. It will be a standard part of my travel wardrobe for future outback trips.
In the city, I throw it on for chilly mornings and evenings, and use it for walking in the hills at dusk for better visibility. I love the red-orange color with teal lining, even though when purchasing, I was hesitant about the electric color - it's great with all my other neutrals. I'm 5'-7, 125# and the medium is large enough for layers underneath when needed.

Mountains or towns...

Mountains or towns...

...this wont let you down.
On top of a tank during summer peak bagging or as a mid-layer during the depths of winter, its so versatile. I have an old one, and the color is amazing (especially during hunting season).
I have not gone on a single trip without this thing since I got it.

(I realize this is my second photo of this thing, but its really one of the best pieces out there so I couldnt help myself)

Nano Puff.... There is nothing better to wear while cooking up scrumptious desert in the backcountry... or while doing ANYTHING else in the backcountry.
If I could only have one piece of outerwear, I would without a doubt pick this one. Ive never been so in love with a single piece of gear.

Perfect Jacket

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

I literally tore open the box yesterday and threw on the jacket over my sweater and ran out the door. It was lightly snowing outside and I was not cold one bit running in and out of buildings. It was really windy and I couldn't feel it at all. I am 5'7" 135 and ordered a Medium and it fits great. So lightweight, unbelievable! Since I live up in Lake Tahoe, this is going to be my every-day jacket! I want to order another one! So happy!

And I can attest this jacket looks great on Tina, so I'm getting one too!

Lightweight and Warm

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

I love the jacket, the fact that it weights 10 ounces, and keeps one warm when hiking!!! We used it this past week in the Santa Monica Mountains where the temperature was down to the 20s.

a++ product.

Excellent lightweight insulated jacket. Packs into its own pocket, and is a perfect layer. Synthetic insulation that will keep you warm even when wet. Love this jacket, hard to take it off.
