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.
I'm 5'11 and 175 lbs. would you recommend a medium or large?
The medium would work, but if you want the extra length and need room for 2-3 layers underneath, then go large. See reviews below with a couple of discussions, and users about your size.
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!
Hey I'm 6'3"175lbs with a skinny torso (41in chest). Would I be better off with a large or medium?
I think a large would be right on the money for you. Medium might fit in the torso, but I would imagine that the sleeves and body might be a little short.
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!
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 510″, 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? Im just afraid the medium might be to tight when I add on a mid layer and the length too short for sking and snowboarding. Whats your thought on this?
I think you should get a large for sure. We're of similar size, and I can wear a medium ok, but the large is much more comfortable and I like the extra length.
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!
It was a present for my son and he was very happy. It fit like a glove and he is waiting for the right weather for a chance to test it.
How does this jacket work for more everyday use, besides use for climbing?
This is an awesome everyday jacket - warm and waterproof. I use mine as a rain jacket when it's wet and chilly out, and it's a great all around winter jacket whether you're climbing or skiing, or just heading to work or class.
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.
I want to buy this jacket for skiing and climbing, so I might put on a fleece on a cold day. I'm 5'10 175 and I'm wondering if I should get a medium or a large?
I'd say a large here would do it for you and give you a little room for that fleece. Thanks for the question, hope that helps!
How does the Bali Blue compare to the Lagoon color? In the pictures Lagoon looks slightly lighter. Is that accurate?
Thanks for your question. The Bali Blue from Patagonia is a strong royal blue. Lagoon is the new blue for the Fall 2011 season, and is lighter than Bali Blue. I hope this is helpful for you.
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.
I like it so much I picked up a second one!
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.
The Bali Blue with the Gecko green is just like the bali blue with red except the zippers are lime green and the darker blue is not there anymore. its just one solid color (the lighter shade blue)
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.

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.
...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!
I'm 5'8" 155lbs -- size??
Most likely medium, small if you want a reall trim fit. I think for this jacket a tad bit of extra room is great though, and makes the jacket a lot warmer and more versatile. Hope this helps!
I got this jacket in black, one of the lightest warmest jackets I have ever worn. It looks great as a casual coat.
6'-2", 220lbs... Size?!?!?!?!
I would go with a large.
i would go with XL
im 6.3 and like 240lbs and always go with XXL
I'm 6'2" 220, the XL is perfect for me
I'm 6'2" and around 200 lbs and the XL is great for me. The L was tight in the armpits.
