Add this puffy to your essentials list.

Alpinists obsessed with their gear's weight got their light-and-warm wish when Patagonia first released the Men's Nano Puff Pullover, and it is now a go-to layering piece in places ranging from K2 to Devil's Tower. The Deluge DWR finish on the 100% recycled polyester ripstop shell makes this lightweight layer both windproof and waterproof. The Nano Puff is constructed with compressible 60g Primaloft One insulation, which makes this jacket an ideal outer layer during morning belays or a midlayer while you head out for a cold backcountry tour.

The Nano Puff has become a classic item because it offers essential features in a minimalist design. The brick quilting pattern, with horizontal quilt lines on side panels, prevents cold channels and insulation shift. Additionally, the elasticized cuffs and hem seal out the cold. If you start working up some heat on your tour, venting is a breeze with the deep center-front zipper; the zipper also has a wicking interior storm flap and zipper garage at chin for next-to-skin comfort. When the weather warms up, you can compress the jacket into the left chest pocket, which doubles as a self-stuff sack, and then use the reinforced carabiner clip-in loop to clip it to your bag. Easy. Simple. Essential.

  • Deluge DWR finish
  • 60g Primaloft One insulation

addecuate for everything

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

this jacket is my bsolut favorite, i use it for everyting, fomr going to the grocery store to climbing in patagonia.
supper lightwheit, compresible and warm (considering tis size and weight)
the great thing about it is that it packs down to nothing and you can clip it to your harness and not know its even there.
most of the times i use it as an outer shell, but in many ocasion i wore it as a second layer when it was really cold.
the only downside is that its not the most durable. but it is the price to pay for a lightweith jacket.

updated fit is a major bummer

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

so i have been a long time fan of the nano puff pullover. the older generation was pretty much my favorite jacket ever & it became a second skin whether bumming around the house, skiing & riding as midlayer or at work (where i tend to run cold).

you could say i "put it through the wringer". it was time to buy a new nano puff. i was excited about the new colors but didn't do my research, assuming the jacket was as dialed as could be. the fit was perfect, the weight very low & the warmth off the charts. why WOULD they redesign? (oh i'm sure they could give a million reasons ...)

the new jacket has a fatal flaw: it no longer fits. they stretched the nano longer while simultaneously narrowing the fit through the shoulders, chest & torso. while the jacket might perform as midlayer, it is no longer a single quiver monster capable of jack of all trades mastery. which is a huge bummer to someone who had it but can no longer get it.

it's still a quality product, but they ruined the fit. when someone like me (6'3" & 190, pretty damn lean) thinks the Large runs too small there is something wrong.

patagonia bricked it with this generation of the nano puff. they should go back to the older design for sure. beware!

Love my nano puff!

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

This is a great piece of insulation. Ive used it by itself over a tee climbing and as part of my layering at the snow skiing. In any situation it has always performed well and is really comfy and warm. I find in anything below -15C (5F) it works great paired with a thermal top, thin fleece, Puff and a shell. If you're hiking, touring or doing anything strenuous Id advise maybe dont use it on the way up as it gets toasty pretty quick!

Im 6ft, skinny and the medium is sweet. Its a bit roomy but thats definitely because Im like a stick and not the sizing of the jacket.

Love my nano puff!

Couldn't be better

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

I bought this jacket a few months ago and my initial impressions are great. I own the past years model that comes in black and apparently has a slightly different cut than the current model. I haven't had a chance to put this through many mountain situations but I am sure it will perform great.
I purchased the jacket used and the previous owner had it for about a year. The jacket had some minor holes from use but they were easily fixed with some patches. Would consider this a downside but the holes are very small and do not continue to rip because of the fabric and the insulation does not come out easily.
The jacket fits great. I have a medium and it fits me very well. (6'1",160lbs) It is slightly loose fitting but I wouldn't want it any tighter. My favorite aspect of the jacket it the weight, it comes in at around 10 oz and packs down to the size of 2 soda cans. It would be easy to forget I was wearing it. It is super soft and feels great against the skin. I find myself wearing this piece all the time around campus just because it is so comfortable.
Bottom line: If you want an insulation piece that almost feels invisible and that you can wear as an everyday piece, this is the one. Bomber jacket.

Stand-by. Standard-bearer.

Got this in 2009 as a gift. It has since been on three continents, through public high school, internships backpacking and snowshoeing, climbing, random trips to the woods, and everywhere in between. Takes the abrasion of climbing like a pro. Handles water well, and keeps you warm when wet. It's deteriorated a bit in the almost five years I've had it, but it's minor cosmetic things. Fabric wore thin in the wrists; I stitched them up and they were right back at it again. It is perfect for early summer mornings, fall evenings, and summit bids in July. Great layering piece. Really does pack into breast pocket. Doesn't get any better than this from the best company in outdoors apparel.

Patagonia never fails! Wear this all the time. Can be worn cruising the brisk city or under your ski shell ripping the backcounty powder runs. BUY IT

I'm torn on what size to get. I normally wear medium in Patagonia but have heard this is a trimmer fit.

Responded on

medium should be good, this piece was running a little big in previous seasons.

Medium will be good. Baggy is never a good look!

A good choice for specific conditions

I've had this jacket for a few years now and have a love hate relationship with it. I've found that elastic on the waist (mens large 35in waist 5'11") is snug enough that the jacket stays up with any lifting of my arms so I don't wear it around town. It is also quite baggy for my 200lb frame. The finish is lower quality with traces of insulation making their way out of the seams. That being said, this is my go to backcountry ski jacket. The fit means that it can be taken on and off without much hassle and the pullover allows you to keep your gloves on while changing into or out of this layer. It's windproof and has been plenty warm. If you are ready to regulate the jacket to outdoor use, then pull the trigger. If you want something a bit more versatile then it is worth checking out the most excellent Arcteryx Atom Lt or my new favorite, the Rab Xenon X (kicks butt in the warmth to weight department)

Will you buy another or trade sides and go with The North Face?

I haven't had any experience with TNF's insulation. No more Paty pieces for me after this one meets it's maker. The quality just isn't there.

Love this Puff

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

This is an amazingly warm, compressible jacket. I've used it on a few cold weather camping trips, and I often take it climbing as a belay jacket. It won't take much space (about the size of a softball if you're not cramming it together) and it WILL keep you warm. I picked it up on sale for around 102 dollars and I've been pretty pleased with it. However, the medium does run short on my torso (5'11"), but it doesn't matter too much as I'm often too warm to care. I love this puff.

THIS PUFF is great. What color did you get? This jacket is so warm. NANO PUFF BABY!
