Awesome jacket, just what I needed

    I was in the market for a light weight, light insulation and wind proof jacket for chilly spring resort skiing. This fits the bill perfect. Nice cut, wide cuffs, great length. I got the Large, which fits me well. (Im 6' 1" & 190 lbs).

    Note: If you're a ninja, this jacket is not for you.

    - It is crinkly. Forget being stealthy.

    - I got the PaintBrush Red and it really should be called Traffic Cone Orange. Forget blending in unless of course you are ninja-ing near road construction.

    - Zipper pulls feel small. Pocket access will be a bit awkward.

      Great Jacket for a 20 year old college student who insisted he didn't need a warm jacket. He hates bulk. This jacket is windproof, element proof and warm without bulk or feeling puffy.

      The only issue is that is makes a bit of a swishy noise -maybe due to newness of jacket or great weatherproof outerwear fabric.

      He loves the brown and lime green colors!

      Great Jacket

        Based on other reviews, I ordered a medium. It fit perfectly over a t-shirt, but was too small when I layered it over a fleece jacket that I would normally wear while skiing. So I sent it back for a large. I'm 5'10" and 165#. The only thing I don't like is that fabric is a little noisy.

        Similar situation here - I'm 6' 175lbs 43 chest 31 waist and the M fit great with a t-shirt but was too tight across the chest and at the pits with anything heavier. Unfortunately the L is huge compared to the M - so much bigger in the chest and body than the M that it seemed like more than just one size up.

        I like it so much I picked up a second one!

          This is the jacket I take to the slopes most often. I originally purchased this for mostly backcountry ski trips but found myself using it inbounds most days. It is very light, durable and fits well. I have used this for several overnight and multi-day ski trips in the Sierra wilderness. When combined with a silk weight capilene and a R1 midweight it is good for the coldest Sierra winter day temps. I usually add a down sweater vest for zero activity dig ins or hanging around after the sun goes down. This does not have a powder skirt, and while it would be nice for the deep powder days I feel it would be out of place on this streamlined jacket.

          This jacket is a bit warm for warm sierra spring days. On warmer days I typically leave this one behind and take a nano puff and lightweight shell. On these days I often find my self wanting just the light shell and a single baselayer.

          This photo was taken on a little urban hike through Grand Rapids Michigan. I live in GR and walk a mile to work everyday. After purchasing the Patagonia Nano Storm Jacket, my walk to and from work is much more comfortable. I can move more and be twice as warm. Very happy with my new threads.

          • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

          This is definitely my favorite cold weather jacket. The Nano Storm is well suited for just about any environment, and any activity. Granted, the price is a little difficult to justify, but after using it in the snow I understand just how much of a value it really is. As others have mentioned, this is a combination of a lightweight water/wind-proof shell (Torrentshell) with a thin PrimaLoft insulation jacket (Nano-Puff). The Nano Storm provides a level of warmth, comfort, and style which most other jackets in this price range simply don't.

          Pros: Very protective/breathable outer shell, watertight exterior zippers, abundance of pockets, thin but efficient insulation, tailored/slim fit with still enough room for layering, oversized (insulated) hood with room for a helmet, good range of motion and flexibility.

          Cons: While it does come with a pull-cord hem, this jacket lacks a powder-skirt. This is the one thing I would change to make this the perfect winter jacket. Also, it is not the most compressible insulated shell, but it can be packed rather neatly with a little planning. Lastly, the shell material, while it is flexible, does not stretch and is not likely to be the best choice for cold weather climbing.

          I got this as a birthday present,and I am glad that I did. I probably would not have purchased this for myself, but now that have used it for over two years (with no problems/damage/wear) I don't know what I would do without it. Two storm seasons later and the DWR is still keeping me dry. 5'10" 175 lbs. and the medium is an ideal fit.

          Overall: Buy one.

          H2No - perfect no matter where you go!

            ...this jacket is perfect - my husband works in Bermuda and rides his motorbike to work (winters can be rainy, windy) keeps his warm and absolutely dry and it's so light weight! When he flys home to NJ, it keeps him warm especially on days like today when it is 12!

            Very well made jacket

              Been wearing mine a bunch since I purchased it in October, been in temps of 30*F with 20 mph winds and am quite warm, this with no base layer other than a cotton T-shirt. Also blocks the wind very well. Jury is still out on how breathable the Nano Storm is-HOWEVER, I sweat like crazy at anything other than a casual stroll, so I may not be the best judge on that score!
              I plan on taking this jacket to the Alps in a couple of weeks as my only warm jacket-I have a hunch it is going to do very well.
              As far as fit is concerned, I purchased a large. I am 5'9", 190 lbs and have wide shoulders-I have plenty of room for layers without the coat seeming 'baggy' around the waist area.

              I have been very happy with this Jacket, to add to my initial review above, the Nano Storm did very well in the Alps in December. Sat around at the foot of the Eiger in single digit temps and breezy, and was toasty with only a R1 hoody as a base layer. I think if I had been climbing or hiking in the same conditions, I would have done great with only a cap2 or 3 as my base layer.
              Great jacket, I only wish it would compress a tad bit better for alpine climbing and such.

              Can any 6' medium built dudes recommend a size for me? I'm about 180lbs have a somewhat longer torso and have a slimmer athletic build. I do typically take a large but I read a few reviews that this jacket runs big, maybe to accommodate multiple layers? I wouldn't be needing to accommodate a lot of layers for my needs for this jacket. I do like an overall slim fit, just want to avoid shortness in the arms/body of jacket. Thanks

              Is that warm enough for winter in Europe (Paris) ?

              For example a tshirt with a hoodie at 30�F, is that good ?

              Should i prefer 100g Primaloft instead of 60g ?


              too many variables to give a definitive answer, but if you are looking for standalone static warmth for low activity endeavors, this piece may not work for colder days (20F or less). However, for 30 degree F, you will probably be OK. Alot depends on your activity level, wind, moisture, etc., but it is a super nice jacket!

              Hi, I am looking for a winter/fall jacket....

              Hi, I am looking for a winter/fall jacket. I have the torrentshell jacket in a size small and use it for spring and summer.The torrentshell jacket is on the slim look on me. I would love to purchase the nano storm jacket but i am not sure what size to purchase. People have been saying that it runs small in length. I am 5'9 and weigh between 145-150 pounds with broad shoulders and a runner lean body.I will be using it for around the town/skiing(4 times a year), and ride my cross bike. I have heard that i should get a medium but i am scared it might be too loose on the chest side. My chest is 38. waist is 30... please help!

              thanks :D

              A small sounds like a wise choice for someone your size. A medium will almost certainly be too big.

              I fit a medium at 5'10" 175lbs, with a 42 chest. Note that this is a rather slim jacket, and the torso is "short" in that it stops just below my belt line. It is well insulated, but if you find that you need an extra layer or two... there is enough room in there to comfortably fit a fleece and a baselayer. Great jacket... you will not be disappointed.

              Hope that helps, and enjoy.

              Hello, i'm 5?10″, 180lb and 33″...

              Hello, i'm 5’10″, 180lb and 33″ waist looking to get this jacket but undecided on size medium or large. Does it fit anything like the torrentshell? I have the torrentshell jacket in medium and it is pretty athletic and slim fitting. I would like to use the nano storm for snowborading and as a general everyday jacket for fall, winter and spring. Would you suggest the medium or large given your experience with the jacket? I’m just afraid the medium might be to tight when I add on a mid layer and the length too short for sking and snowboarding. What’s your thought on this?

              I'm looking for a winter jacket for skiing...

              I'm looking for a winter jacket for skiing and general winter wear. I only ski maybe 4 times a year or so, split between out west and VT, so I want something that I can wear the rest of the winter as well as function on the mountain. I came across this jacket and like it because it seems light weight and like it will fit me well....I'm 5'11" and thin, so the bulkier ski jackets tend to swallow me whole.

              For what I'm looking for (warmth, durability for skiing, water resistance, more "fitted" feel, etc.), is this the best Patagonia option out there? Is it long enough in the back to keep out snow?

              The Nano Storm is a great ski jacket, and a great all around winter jacket. It's a hybrid of two of Patagonia's best selling jackets: the Torrentshell Rain Jacket, and the Nano Puff lightweight insulated jacket. It will keep you warm in some very chilly temps, and not look or feel bulky on. Compared to other waterproof insulated jackets out there you're getting a lot for your money at $299 for the Nano storm. I think the size medium here would probably give you a good fit as well. Large would work, but might add a little bulk in the sleeves and waist that it sounds like you might not be looking for. hope that helps!

              At what temperature can I wear this jacket?...

              At what temperature can I wear this jacket? (min; max). Live in Russia, so the winter is really cool 30~40 C. Thanks.

              Best Answer


              You could wear this jacket alone down to about the freezing mark. Any lower then that and you may be rather uncomfortable. This jacket is insulated with 60g of primaloft, but that is not very much when you are talking very low temperatures.

              Hope this helps.
