Micro Puff Insulated Jacket

If your trip or spring expedition runs the risk of getting wet, then the Patagonia Micro Puff Insulated Jacket can effectively insulate you while you hunker down in a tent to wait out the rain or freak June snowstorm. The power of the Plumafill insulation becomes apparent in cold and wet climates, because it can still lock in your body's warmth when wet, but it also dries quickly and can easily compress and fit into your alpine pack. But thanks to the water- and wind-resistant recycled polyester shell, you don't have to worry about sprinkles or heavy flurries slowing down your alpine travels.

  • Toasty, lightweight, and versatile jacket for cold outdoor trips
  • PlumaFill insulation mimics down and retains warmth when wet
  • Durable fabric resists water and abrasion
  • Regular fit leaves room for extra layers
  • Elasticized cuffs and hem seal out the elements
  • Multiple pockets stash smaller essentials
  • Item #PAT029Z

This cotton jacket is awesome

This cotton jacket is awesome. It is the lightest cotton jacket I wear. Despite its light weight, it is very warm and feels very hot to wear. Patagonia is a great and outstanding company. I hope to create more outstanding products!

It is not made of cotton. It is obviously a wool jacket.

Yikes; you're both wrong! Read the technical specs...

Ski Backpack Essential

As a big mountain ski coach I find myself standing still on the mountain during competitions and line scouting for long periods of time (anywhere from -5 degree F days to 25 degree and windy days). On the flip side there are times I am hiking for long periods of time. I needed a light weight, ultra pack-able, toasty warm jacket that I could pack away or throw on at a moments notice. The Micro Puff was perfect for what I was looking for. Throw it on for the cold and take it off for the elevated heart rate stuff. I am 6'2 175lbs, normally go large in patagonia, but I size up in the slim fit jackets for layering and extra room, so I got an XL in the Micro-puff. I like the collar style for on the mountain and fighting the winds when they whip but can get a bit annoyed with it when I'm not on the mountain in this jacket. One thing it is missing is a cinch on the waistband. That would be nice for when the snow gets real deep and some extra pinch would be nice. Off the mountain, I occasionally wear it to and from work and around town, but have other jackets I prefer for my other outdoor activities. Because the micro puff is such a warm jacket I find myself wanting to wear more breathable airy jackets when I'm "out on the town". Overall, this is the perfect jacket to keep in the ski backpack when you need to warm up in a flash and be able to pack tightly out of the way when not in use! Take-aways: Extremely warm for its size and weight, Packable, Comfortable, Slightly stuffy when weather is warmer/not breathable, Handles the elements without loosing any warmth/integrity!

2 stars only for the fit of the XL-size jacket on me, specifically. to help the other human giants, i'm a 44XL in a suit jacket, 17.5/36 dress shirt, 38 waist. i saw other online reviews that mentioned how the fit seems different, but i've owned other patagonia jackets (down sweater, better sweater jacket, snap-t pullovers), so i ignored them. tag says XL and regular fit, but not for me at 6'5" with a wicked dad bod - you know, basically athletic but soft in places. sleeve length and jacket length were fine, but the jacket was tight on my body with no hope for more than a t-shirt or baselayer underneath. i could have made peace with the athletic fit ( i have an arcteryx atom s-something that i like in a slimmer cut), but the collar was too tight to zip up completely and be comfortable. i exchanged for a XXL. the good news is, i had a wonderful customer service experience facilitating that exchange. thumbs up, backcountry!

Same experience here; I just can't wear Patagonia XL in garments like this, too skinny at the belly and hips. If I sat down, I'd blow out the zipper!!

I bought this jacket his winter for a lighter alternative to another down jacket that i have had and I could not be more pleased. This jacket is warm and extremely light. There is nothing else i could ask for in this jacket! It works great for anything from skiing to climbing this jacket has done it all for me.

I've had many puffies over the years and I always come back to this one. Having synthetic insulation for warmth and being water resistant you have a great combination. It compresses like down, great to throw in a pack and have that cold weather backup. Great mid layer or light town jacket. Very versatile, well-made and looks good enough that I can wear it out on the town.

Good review but I hate that this style jacket is called "puffy". I know it's the nomenclature of today's generation but for some reason it grates on me.

This is an awesome layering piece for the person that is always active. It will keep you very warm, (also when wet) its lightweight and packs away super small. The best thing about this jacket is the Plumafill which is synthetic insulation that literally imitates down plumules. So you are getting the same level of warmth that you would get in down, in a lighter, more compressible package. uhh... win-win? I think so.

Good value & performance for a synthetic

Grabbed two of these on sale last year and they quickly became a standard staple during the winter. Bought one in XL to layer under, and one in L to layer over depending on the conditions and activity. Found myself relying on the L size under my Arc`teryx Beta AR as a perfect combination to fend off the slop and chill while hiking down into single digits and wind. Decent combo for wearing around town too as the Micro Puff has nominal bulk. Took the XL size running with a light layer underneath. Proved a good bit too warm down into the 20F range without pit zips for venting. Pared down the layers next time around and found the Micro Puff was still a good option for bumping down the pavement. Very wind proof by itself. Allows me to let the down parka hang in the closet and stay in better shape for more demanding conditions. Hard to beat for the performance and value.

I haven't really looked at synthetics for about 20 years, but wanted something to layer under a shell that won't take on water like my down jackets. Wow, this thing is awesome. Also impressed with the light but warm feel when wearing into town alone. The down stays in the closet these days.

The Micro Puff jacket is a warm and comfortable jacket in temperatures down to 20 F. I like the soft feel and loose comfort of the Large. I tried the Medium but the sleeves were too tight. I am 5'11", 175 lbs. I have the down jacket (L) but I bought 2 of these to wear around town.

An Excellent warm jacket.

I started wearing this jacket upon receiving it last week, and I love it. It was what I had expected it to be; it's very warm and cozy to wear when it's cold outside. The material of this jacket is very soft on the inside, and is very well made. I'm about 5'7" tall and about 155 lbs., and a size small was perfect on me. There's ample room for a base layer or even another mid-layer under this jacket. It's a great buy and worth every penny even if you pay full price, which I didn't. I highly recommend it. You will not regret it..

this jacket looks nice and is super warm! did i mention this was a warm cozy jacket! i'm 5'7" on with shoes and 170 lbs and i bought a medium...it is a snug fit and i don't know how much layering i could do in it....so if you want loose fit size up. haven't had the chance to wear this jacket in the rain, so i don't know how dry or warm it will keep you. oh...did i mention that the minute you put this jacket on you feel the warmth.

Ok...but I will pass

Pretty nice but not quite right. Fit was ok but not the same as my nano puff. The outer material was definitely thicker and did no have the quilted look like the nano puff. I think the outer fabric made it less useful as a layering piece. I would go nano. Sleeve cuffs were also weird. Half just fabric an half with a little plastic reinforcement. I have attache a pic. Just didn't make sense to me.

recommended with reservations

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

100g of primaloft is a nice thing to have.Fit is poor though. Too tight in the shoulders, too loose around the mid-section. Too tight in the forearms. Uncomfortable/awkward fit around the neck/chin. Third pocket fits a smart phone, but it's internal and it's a pain to have to open the jacket to get at your phone. Despite description above, it is not a hook/loop wrist cuff. Patagonia used to impress me with their garment design choices; now not so much.

is there a synthetic fill equivalent to down? This jacket appears to be 65g plumafill , what would that be in down measurement?

Is this jacket more red than pink??

Hey Kelly, I'm not sure what color you're referring to, but both reddish colors are going to be red, not pink.
