    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

    Versatile as can be

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    While I had originally bought to wear as a mid-layer under my shell for skiing, this mighty little jacket is proving to be my favorite go-to for everything. For me, the selling point was the double chest pockets, it's great fit, and the DWR finish. If you're looking for the one quiver mid layer jacket, look no further.

    Best puffy I’ve owned

      Title says it all. Jacket is cut for active movement and it’s so cozy even layered with a simple shirt. Throw a thermal on underneath and you’ll sweat if you’re moving

      Love it

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'12"
      • Weight: 170lbs

      The “paintbrush red” is more of a traffic cone orange but it still looks good. Jacket is super warm. I wouldn’t recommend it for the wind though. Overall would buy again!

      New Favorite Jacket

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small
      • Height: 5'8"
      • Weight: 135lbs

      I've owned this jacket for about 2 weeks now, been taking everywhere with me. Love the way it feels, and way it looks.

      Great Versatile Piece

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'9"
      • Weight: 150lbs

      I picked up this jacket because I was looking for something that I could climb in comfortable but not overheat. I ended up using it for that and so much more. I absolutely love the fit of this jacket! I'm 5' 9" 150 lbs and the Medium was a perfect fit for me. This piece is now my go-to for climbing, camping, ski touring, and casual wear. I can't seem to take it off. It's great to layer with and offers plenty of mobility and breathability for more strenuous activities. Plus the Big Sur Blue is the coolest color ever.

      Uncomfortable when compared to Arc'teryx

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: medium
      • Height: 5'9"
      • Weight: 155lbs

      This review is more of a suggestion to try it on in the store if you can find one. I felt the neck/hood opening to be to small and tight, and the material on the inside was rough against my skin. For the same price, I liked the Arc'teryx Atom AR a lot more.

      Awesome active layering piece

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 175lbs

      I took this jacket for a spin last weekend while visiting the Bitterroot range in western Montana. If you're looking for a jacket to keep you warm while you're out being active during chilly weather, Patagonia hit the mark with this jacket.

      The DWR finish works great when wearing this jacket on its own through inclement weather, and I never had a problem shaking the water off to avoid it from getting too soaked as we unloaded the car in a rainstorm. Later that day, I layered a gore-tex shell over this and I never felt like it was too bulky or reduced my mobility at all. It does have a slim cut, but the fabric moves with you and hugs your body, so it fits snug while not being restrictive.

      I would totally suggest this for a jacket to wear while hanging out at camp, climbing in colder temperatures, or as a midlayer while skiing at the resort or backcountry. It even looks good when wearing it around town too.

      Warm, Soft, Great Fit

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small
      • Height: 5'9"
      • Weight: 140lbs

      This is a key insulation piece, and super comfy. The stretch is outstanding and makes it fit like a glove. I love the DWR coating and feel good about wearing this in light rain and snow, but anything more than that obviously deserves a shell.

      Warm and Soft

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 160lbs

      This is my favorite jacket, very warm and extremely comfortable. This is not a traditional puffy jacket that is loud and uncomfortable, this jacket feels soft and is breathable.

      I would recommend this to anyone that is looking for a nice jacket to stay warm inside and outdoors.


      Bury me in this jacket!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 145lbs

      This is one of the best jackets I’ve purchased to date. The fit is spot on. It’s insanely soft and comfortable and I want to wear it all the time. I’ve worn it casually and on several splitboarding tours here in the Wasatch. I can wear a lightweight merino/cap type baselayer and the Nano Air and be perfectly comfortable skinning up. It really does breathe incredibly well and it’s evident as a light frost was building up on the outside of the jacket on a cold morning from my perspiration escaping. DWR treatment is great. Soft stretchy fit. 2 chest pockets with zippers are perfect for sunglasses, chapstick, buff etc. 2 zip hand pockets to keep stuff secure. IMO this thing perfect and has everything I could need or want in a jacket of this type.

      Comfort, warmth, breathability

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small
      • Height: 5'7"
      • Weight: 145lbs

      I’ve been living in this piece since it arrived on my doorstep. So far, I’™ve used it for bike commuting, winter hiking, and general travel. Amazing warmth/breathability ratio for cool-to-cold weather activities. Super lightweight, although I wish it would pack down smaller for backpacking. Amazing comfort and stretch for all kinds of activities. Fit is true to size, if a little slim, but zero motion restriction. Repels light rain/snow really well, still performs great/dries quickly once wet. Really versatile midlayer/insulation piece for most outdoor conditions - definitely a new staple in my kit.

      I'm pleased with the balance this jacket strikes between warm and breathable. If the wind picks up you're feeling it, but a shell greatly increases its warmth. I recently wore this piece up La Plata peak(Colorado 14er) in January. Aside from a down vest on stops and shell at the top I wore this alone over a silk weight capilene tee for a solid 5 hours of aerobic climbing. Temperatures fluctuated between 10 in the morning to maybe 35 in the hight of the day in the sun. Much colder above 14,000 with wind but that's where the shell came out. On the move it was really easy to open the zip in the heat of the sun and pull the hood up when the wind blew. Sweating the whole time and the Nano handled it as promised. If it weren't a small fortune I'd buy another. I just wish it were a little more durable. It took tree branches fine, but I have several pulls in the fabric after half a season's use. Impressive DWR! Overall an easy 5*!

      comfortable but not durable

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: L
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 190lbs

      I was so upset to see that after a month, this jacket was showing bad wear just from my seat belt in the car. It is definitely the most comfortable jacket I have ever owned, but I could not keep it because of its durability. I ended up returning it under the warranty (thanks Backcountry for having great support with the warranties). If the exterior fabric was more durable, I'd never take it off.

      Pretty cool. Goofy fit

        I really liked my nano puff and I decided to invest in a Nano Air once it started looking haggard.
        I have both jackets in size L, but they don't fit that similarly.
        The Nano Puff has a 'boxy' fit that I think is pretty comfortable. 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 so.
        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

        • 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.

        How cold is this jacket rated for? Thanks!

        Hey Kurt,

        So jackets don't come with any kind of warmth rating because there are too many variables. With sleeping bags, we know that you aren't going to be moving much and so heat that you make when you're sleeping is going to be pretty easy to figure out, where as for jackets and other clothes, you could be moving, or not, or have other clothes that aren't super breathable over it, so there's just too much going on. All that said, this jacket would do great at lower temperatures as part of some system with other layers (baselayer, shell over it, ect) and can be used daily as well. Let me know if you have any other questions or want to chat!
