Description

Protect yourself from not-so-nano puffs of cool air during your fall frolicking.

As summer heat starts to wane, outdoor adventures remain plentiful. On its own or under a shell, the Patagonia Women's Nano Puff Insulated Vest provides lightweight, compressible, and windproof insulation for your fall follies. The physical structure of PrimaLoft One insulation mimics the structure of feathers, trapping warm air as it leaves your body and creating a thermal barrier between surrounding cooler air and your body. Likewise, the warmth-to-weight ratio for PrimaLoft One is similar to down in that it offers substantive warmth without substantive weight. However, unlike down, PrimaLoft One only loses 4% of its insulating capacity when wet, which makes this vest an ideal choice when moisture may be factor.

Along the insulation spectrum of Patagonia's puffy vests, the Nano Puff flirts with the low end in terms of warmth. When worn alone, this vest keeps your core toasty during an early October football game or when you're cragging or simply walking between classes as leaves begin to fall. While the Deluge DWR treatment handles light drizzle, you should throw a shell over the Nano Puff vest when nasty storms and winds howl the entrance of cooler days. A zipper garage protects your chin from chafing, and the brick quilting pattern prevents the insulation from settling and creating cold zones on your body. The chest pocket doubles as a self-stuff sack so you can easy store the Puff in your tote bag or daypack.

  • 22D recycled polyester

I wanted a vest that I could wear all the time and this vest is perfect. It doesn't get too warm when I'm around the house, but keeps me warm while I'm outside in the yard. Color looks like picture. Overall very satisfied!!! Love it!!

Love this vest

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 5"
    Weight: 125 lbs
    Size Purchased: x-small

I love wearing this vest underneath a shell when the temperature hovers in the 30's. It's super lightweight and form-fitting. I'm usually a size small on top, but ended up getting an XS after trying it on because I wanted a vest that was more form-fitting (and cute) to wear with a long-sleeve shirt underneath. If Iwanted to layer underneath with more, I would have gotten the small. I plan on using this in the spring and fall when hiking/going around town. I'm 5'5, 125ish, athletic build, 32D.

Impressed with the quality!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 7"

    Size Purchased: Small

Just got this vest about a week ago and I've hardly taken it off! It is super duper light weight yet still adds extra needed warmth. It makes a great extra layer underneath my ski suit and winter coat without adding any bulk. Can't forget that it is also very stylish looking! I went with a size small and it was a little loose fitting but I decided to keep it because it fits perfectly over a flannel or midweight sweater without being too tight and the drawcord at the bottom can be tightened as needed. I also really like that it has a higher neck so when it is zipped all the way up no cold air can blow down your neck! Random final note - it shows a picture of the vest folded up into the stuff sack/pack with a carabiner but the carabiner is not included just FYI in case anyone thought it was part of the deal! :)

went skiing for the first time in Utah... and I was worried it wasn't going to keep my core warm.. it did the job! Plus, I love how it was fitted, light weight and very stylish. Plan on bring it on my trip to Patagonia in a month! I'm 34 D and I'm a small.

weightless

So light. Airy. Comfortable. For reference I'm 4'11" 123 lbs. Does not seem small at all. True to size.

What's the difference between the nano puff and sweater vest?

Responded on

Mel,
The Down Sweater Vest is going to be slightly warmer than the Nano Vest here. Also the Nano Puff vest uses a synthetic insulation (Prima Loft) vs actual goose down in the Down Sweater Vest.

Wish it had a double zip :(

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

I absolutely LOVE the golden amber color of this series. I was so excited to add this vest to my gear collection. But I was a little surprised at the fit of the hips on this vest; the XS fit perfectly everywhere, including my bust (I am 5'5", 118 pounds, and a 32D), but the hips were super duper snug...like if I wore jeans instead of spandex, I don't think I would have been able to zip this guy up. If there were a double zip, or a looser hip fit with a generous adjustable draw cord, this would have solved the problem. Instead, I had to reluctantly size up to a small, which fits my hips great, but is a bit loose everywhere else. Considering the price tag, I'm not sure if this will be a keeper or not...

Just for kicks, I tried on the sweater for size comparison in the small versus XS and I experienced the same hip sizing problem. At least they are consistent! I am just surprised since I have never encountered this problem with their sizing in the past :( Bummers...please add double zip!!

What is the center back length of a medium?

Great Vest!

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

This vest fits true to size, is a tad longer so my 5'10" frame is covered in the back. The vest is very lightweight, easy to pack and provides just the right amount of warmth. I was never cold nor was I hot. Took it to Yellowstone where temps can swing wildly and I was perfectly comfortable. Nice pockets, great colors! Get it, you will love it!

Blazing fast shipping from Backcountry!

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

I practically lived in my old (3 years?) nano puff vest, and have been waiting for more interesting colors to be available before purchasing another. I ordered the same size I had before (XS). I'm 5'5, 125 lbs, small busted. The new vest is about 2 inches longer than my old one, but since it goes farther down on the hips it should be a bit wider at the bottom. Other than that it fits well under my arms and around my bust.

Sweet Vest

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

Bought this for my 71 year old mom. She is still quite active hiking the AT. She has worn it casually as well as on a few day hikes. He was impressed with how warm and lightweight it is.

My wife loves this vest. I think she is addicted to wearing it. I'm jealous of how much she loves it. Fits well, provides warmth and coziness without it being too much. Guys - get one for your lady! She'll thank you for it.

Comfy & Stylish

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

This is such a nice vest! Best used for leisure wear, layering, snowshoeing/hiking on warmer days..etc.

It's an 'insulated' vest but it's a very light one. (Only 60g insulation)

I have the Blue Butterfly color-- which actually has a hint of purple to it (in certain lighting) I was expecting a more bright blue color, but the occasional purple that comes out is actually pretty nice. The interior is also a bright teal which I love!

The vest has two hand pockets, and one internal chest pocket. The arm holes have a little elasticity to them for a snug fit (but not too snug)

I'm about 5'3''- a little on the petite side and my usual size for shirts/jackets etc. is a size small- which I got in this vest and it's a perfect fit!

Light and Bright

The vest is super light. When I put it on I was shocked at how light it was. The first thing I noticed was the bright red color I selected. So noticeable and attractive to the eye. Fits true to size, good light weight vest!
