Thomas Candeewrote a review of Patagonia Nano Puff Pullover Insulated Jacket - Men's on March 11, 2014
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!
