    Details

    Built for the up and the down.

    When your day is going to consist of as much up as down, you need something special to keep you warm and comfortable for the long haul. Conveniently, that special something comes in the featherweight form of the Patagonia Men's Nano-Air Insulated Hooded Jacket. The combination of a nylon ripstop shell and plain-weave nylon lining offers excellent breathability, so you're not drenched in sweat after the hike up. FullRange synthetic insulation stretches with you to provide generous freedom of movement, no matter how crazy you and the marmots are getting in the high alpine.

    The DWR treatment on the outer helps to shed light moisture, and it provides a bit more durability for the ride down as well. In order to help combat even more of the elements, Patagonia added storm flaps to the front zippers and a zipper garage at the top, so you're not taking a cold metal zipper to the chin every time you move your head side to side. Stretch material around the cuffs helps to make a seal to fight off even more winter chill, while zippered handwarmer pockets let you warm up your digits when it's not quite cold enough to necessitate gloves.

    • Breathable insulation for aerobic ascents in the alpine
    • Stretchy shell offers mobility while climbing and hiking
    • Low-profile FullRange insulation moves with your every move
    • DWR finish repels light precipitation from mist and snow
    • Stretchy hood pulls on and off easily when jacket is zipped
    • Low-bulk pockets wear comfortably under a pack or harness
    • Stretch cuffs and adjustable hem seal out the elements
    • Item #PAT01ZX

    Pretty cool. Goofy fit

    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    I really liked my nano puff and I decided to invest in a Nano Air once it started looking a bit haggard.
    I have both jackets in size L, but they don't fit that similarly.
    The Nano Puff has a nice 'boxy' fit that I've heard a lot of complaints about, but I think it is actually pretty rad. I like the loose fit because I think the jacket moves better and feels more mobile than it might if it were cut to fit more snuggly.
    The Nano Air is cut to fit more snuggly, and while that necessarily a bad thing, it is mostly cut to fit closely through the shoulders and chest - it is kind of shaped like a bell or a pear.
    The Nano Air's face fabric is kind of soft and I think that it is a bit warmer than the Nano puff. That said, they are pretty comparable jackets.
    If you are looking into both and hoping to differentiate, I think it is probably worth going for whichever best suits your needs. I've heard that the nano air layers really well under waders for fishing or under a bib while skiing, but I think the Nano puff is better suited to climbing and the alpine.

    My Go-To Synthetic

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 161lbs

    I'm entering my third winter with my Patagonia Nano Air Hoody and can honestly say this is a five star piece. It kinda makes me regret giving 5 stars to other pieces, because it may be the most loved piece in my kit.

    My Nano Air fills the need on so many days, it's unbelievable. I use it as jacket outerwear on days from 30-55 degrees, or even colder days when I'm just running to the store or to work. I layer a base underneath it for snow shoveling in almost any condition, as I know I'll work up a sweat in anything that doesn't breathe as well. I've worn it under a shell at the ski resort, or over a tshirt while skinning up on a tour. I've slept with it under my 35 degree bag on nights when the temp falls below freezing and this is the warmest layer in my pack. This piece has been to the top of over 20 mountains. It has also been to the beaches of California to warm me after swimming or surfing all day.

    It is incredibly cozy, sometimes I get home and just don't take it off. The face fabric feels more durable than a standard down puffy, or even the Nano Puff, but a nasty day of bushwhacking without a shell may push it to it's limit. That said, when hiking around off-trail, I'm not near as conscientious as I am with a down puffy.

    I have put at least 300 days in by now with my Nano Air, and would replace it IMMEDIATELY if it were ever lost, stolen, or somehow destroyed. It is so versatile it will usually end up in the bag because it does so many things as well as competitors, and a certain few (looks, breathability, comfort) significantly better.

    If you're looking to buy a midlayer that is more than just a layering piece, look no further. Just know what this isn't, it isn't a standalone jacket for 20 degree days, and it isn't waterproof. My advice is to get a color you love, cause you'll be wearing it a LOT.

    I am 6 feet, 160 ish with longer arms than I am tall, and I purchased a small. It's been perfect, as I never intended for this to fit over anything other than tshirts or merino/capilene baselayers. This is a midlayer that looks like a well cut jacket if layered over light clothing.

    my favorite jacket

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

    I've been searching for a good backpacking jacket - one that is warm, versatile, and very stuffable. This jacket fits the bill better than the rest of my collection. Fabric is very soft but not bulky, and the amount of insulation is perfect for cool alpine nights. Plus it looks very nice. And Backcountry, as usual, continues to provide outstanding and very fast service. Thanks guys!

    Pretty good

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The clothes are very warm, soft and light. They feel comfortable after wearing them. In short, they are the best clothes I've ever worn.No cap is much cheaper than having a cap. If the budget is limited, a cap can be considered.

    Perfect winter cool-cold weather jacket. If conditions get super nasty or wet I'd cover with a shell... This will hold up to the snow, wind, & chill nicely.
    It's not a tight fitting jacket - It's not sloppy-baggy... but, I have plenty of room in the arms & mid section for mobility &/or another light layer.

    Great Light Weight Stretchy Soft Jacket

    I have the same jacket without the hood and one of the chest pockets and it's a great jacket for a lot of cool to cold temps. Have not yet worn this hooded one as the weather is still warm enough not to need it. I'll be glad to have the hood for those times I find myself walking home in a snow storm. And we get snow storms. Familiarity selection is the closest I could select.

    Soft And Warm!

      My fiance thinks that this fleece was perfect for camping and I actually can't wait for fall and winter to roll around so I can wear it all the time.

      Extreme Durability

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 170lbs

      I’d like to share a short story about the extreme durability of this jacket. I work as a field biologist in arctic Alaska, studying cliff-nesting falcons. This often requires rappelling in to their nest sites on extremely sharp, loose rock. We usually use rope protectors, but sometimes forget them and use one of our extra layers to protect the rope from the rock instead. This particular day, the only extra layer I had on hand was my Nano Air. I grudgingly placed it on the jagged lip of rock and ran the rope over it, and we went about our business. As we were finishing and pulling the rope, we were hit by a sudden frigid downpour and quickly gathered our materials and got out of there. A 3-mile slog later, soaked and freezing and exhausted, I realized with dismay that my prize possession, my Patagonia Nano Air was nowhere to be found. I whipped out the binoculars and there it was, shining lime green through the mist, stranded on the cliff face. Due to the nature of our biology project, we were unable to return to the site for 3 weeks. And there it stayed, exposed to the extreme elements of arctic Alaska, whipped by wind and pummeled by rain against the knife-edged rocks. I had written off all hope of retrieving this jacket, but lo and behold the three weeks went by and we found ourselves again at the cliff. Right where I left it, I picked it up and was amazed to find not a scratch on it. Once through the washer, and it was good as new, and I wear it to this day.

      I wear this when I'm sitting in one place under boulder problems and freezing my @$$ off. I can't get enough warmth out of a thinner jacket like my Atom LT, so this does the trick and is way less bulky than hiking a massive puffy coat up to the boulders. Runs a bit big in sizing just to allow you to layer underneath.

      The best

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 175lbs

      I have many synthetic insulates jackets. This one one of my favorite. Warm and breathable just like it advertises. Strechy and trustworthy. I am between sizes with Patagonia which is a bummer. Medium is a bit snug and large is slightly boxy fitting.
      Wind is no problem, but this thing will not do water as well as others.

      The best

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

      This jacket is absolutely amazing. For an insulated jacket for high output activities you can't beat it. It is stretchy and breathes ridiculous well. It even does a very good job keeping you warm while inactive , i.e belaying, lounging around in camp etc. I've taken this jacket around the world from trekking in the Himalaya , camping in near/freezing temps, and climbing. I will sayit can't be beat in terms of comfort and breathing. One thing I love about this jacket is that's it's great to fall asleep in. If you're cold at camp throw this baby on for another level of warmth in your sleeping bag. Hell, put it on while laying in your hammock and see you next morning. It feels like wearing a blanket. It's f*ing great for wearing on long international flights (its that comfortable). Anyways, buy it and I'm sure you'll love it too.

      Super warm, super comfortable

      This jacket will keep you warm and is extremely comfortable. I've worn it in 20°F weather with only a long sleeve underneath and stayed warm the entire time. The jacket is very lightweight as well. It'll make you forget you even have it on. Bought a medium which fits a little big, which is good if you want to layer (such as a hoodie underneath), otherwise I'd get a small. Overall, this is an amazing product that will serve me for a long time and one I will definitely put through the wringer.

      Oh boy....where do I start......This jacket is astounding. SO soft and stretches in the right places. The best thing about putting it on is realizing the potential. From mid layers to a stand alone piece, it is the perfect shoulder season item. It offers breathable insulation? sounds like some hippy dippy mumbo jumbo...when you put it on you will see. Call me to get the right fit!

      From shady and 70 degrees to about 30 degrees the nano air is the most comfortable jacket I own. I never seem to overheat in the nano air, it seems to be just in that sweet spot or just a tad cold (which as a high output mid layer is important). I sized a little small on this item so it layers well under a shell for skiing and mountaineering, I'm pretty slim and a medium form fits. A drawback that I'd recommend Patagonia work on are the arm lengths which seem to be a little to short on the medium and way too big on the large.

      My go to Jacket for high output days

      I traded in my nano puff pullover for this jacket and I'm happy with that choice in every category except 1. This jacket seems to run a bit large for its size, both in sleeve length and in the body. It is rather baggy on me despite the nano puff fitting perfectly. As this is a mid layer or outer layer I can understand that it leaves a little room for layers underneath, but this jacket leaves a little too much room. I wish I could try on a medium, but I've already worn this on multiple climbing trips and it wouldn't be right to trade it in now. It does an excellent job keeping me warm when I'm not moving while at the same time it dumps excess heat when I'm actually climbing. This is key as I don't have to adjust layers constantly. I also like the mechanical stretch which gives me better range of motion when reaching or contorting my body into weird positions. I also really like the double chest pockets. I typically wear this with a harness on so the standard pockets are inaccessible. The 2 chest pockets are great to store my phone and snacks.

      I would absolutely recommend this jacket, I would just suggest trying it on first to make sure you are pleased with the fit.

      I never stop wearing it...

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I wear it to work, in the mountains, and around town. It basically never leaves my body during the winter. I love the feel and fit of it and it's definitely quite warm. I personally don't think it breathes *especially* well, but likely a little better than other puffies I've tried. No wear or issues to report at this time. Get yourself one!

      This jacket is super awesome and I love using it for layering under my shell, when skiing. It puts out a lot of heat! I've also worn it in light rains, and the DWR coating kept me dry. Get the Nouveau Green, you won't be disappointed. I'm 5'10" 165 and the Large fit me perfectly.

      This puffy is probably one of my favorite articles of clothing. It's super warm but still very breathable. It's had no problems facing Joshua tree rock and plants. It's pretty great for a skiing mid layer as well.

      Lacks Details, Poor Value, Too Warm?

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs small

      I own an Arcteryx Atom LT and have compared these two pieces. I bought this thinking it would be a good high activity insulation piece in cold weather. I've used it while charging up hill on mountain hikes or backpacking trips. My initial impressions are that either it doesn't breath like it claims, or it's just too warm. In 30 degree weather I got very warm and quickly found myself wanting to switch to a fleece instead of the Nano Air.

      The cuffs are shaped awkwardly in that they don't taper like the comparable options from other brands, so you end up with too long of sleeves that bunch up into big puffy masses around your wrists.

      The lack of any hood adjustment on a $300 synthetic jacket is a big oversight.

      Overall I like the jacket, but not for $300. It's a good insulation piece at a relatively poor value. Can't help but feel like I paid for the brand name, which isn't even embroidered. Details matter when you pay a lot for a simple piece!
