    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 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 don't feel like a dog in a hot car when you're hiking, climbing, or skiing, and the FullRange synthetic insulation stretches with you to provide generous freedom of movement whether you're reaching through the crux move or reaching for a tail clip as you rip skins on a windy ridge.

    The DWR treatment on the outer face helps to shed light moisture, and its windproof construction cuts wind on the way down, too. In order to help combat 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 from 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 things head into those frigid temps. The hood is designed to be worn under a helmet for next-to-skin warmth, but it can also be worn over a low-profile helmet thanks to its stretchy nature.

    • Protective insulation for start-and-stop missions in the mountains
    • FullRange stretch insulation maintains warmth when wet
    • Light and tough 4-way stretch shell with water-resistant finish
    • Nano Puff brick quilting along sides enhances durability
    • Stretch hood fits close against the noggin and will fit over helmets
    • Stretch binding at cuffs and drawstring at hem locks in body heat
    • Regular fit allows piece to be worn both over and under layers
    • Patagonia has been building gear for the high mountains since 1973
    • Item #PAT00EO

    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

    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.

    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.

      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

      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.

      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

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 5'11"
      • Weight: 188lbs

      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.

      Can you post a picture of you wearing it? Because I'm torn between the large and the medium and you are exactly the same height and the same weight as me. It would be easier for me to get an idea on which one to get. Thanks!

      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!

      Two is better than one

        I already own the one without a hood but decided I wanted another Nano Air and went with a hood this time. This jacket is great for playing in the mountains of just hanging out around town. It is by far the most comfortable jacket I have worn. As others have said, it’s like being wrapped up in a cozy comforter. The Nano Air breathes really well for when you skinning uphill to earn your turns in the backcountry but also stays plenty toasty when the temps drop. The one area this jacket falls a bit short is wind protection but on really windy cold days I use this jacket as a mid layer underneath my shell. It’s an all around great jacket, good enough that I decided to buy two.

        Top of the line

        Still trying to find the perfect use for this jacket. It's a tech clothing dream; unbelievably breathable, super light, super warm. I bought it because I tried it on and immediately felt the warmth and loved the stretch in the fabric and it was on sale. I've avoided certain products (from all brands) because of how stiff the item felt while wearing it. This jacket is very comfortable due to the material and the sizing. It has a normal fit, nothing overly slim but not baggy. The problem I face now is how warm it is during exercise. I bought this for hiking and running. I hate having to strip layers during exercise and the wicking on this jacket is unreal. But you have to either be in sub freezing or high winds (for vigorous exercise when wearing the jacket) or just above freezing for moderate exercise. I went for a run on a still 35 degree day and sweat through the jacket before I hit 3 miles. This isn't a knock to the jacket though, it's amazing at what it does, but you have to realize that the activities you do may not require something like this. I haven't worn this in a situation where I would be inactive, but it's not really meant for that situation. I am also a bit fearful of the durability of the outer layer. It's very soft and plush and I fear it could rip very easily (like trail running and clipping a bush or excessive wear in high in highly abrasive areas like elbows under the arm).

        All of this aside, I love the jacket. If I were to buy another one, I would first research Arctyrex atom LT jacket, it's similarly designed and cheaper. Bottom line, this is a great product, but for niche use. The main zipper also feels cheap, no hood adjustment ability and no inside pockets detract from the practicality. Still happy!

        Great Piece, but a Warning:

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
        • Fit: Runs large
        • Size Bought: Large
        • Height: 6'2"
        • Weight: 190lbs

        I needed to size down this piece. I'm a 6'2" dude with a climber build. I ordered a large and was swimming in it. It was fine in the shoulders, but the belly had way WAY too much space and the sleeves were bunching at my wrists.

        It still gets 4 stars because I bought a medium afterwards and found a much sleeker fit. It's snug, but not uncomfortable or hindering in the shoulders and upper chest. Everywhere else fits great. Ideally, I'd get a large with a slim fit for the best shoulder/belly combination, but seeing as the jacket is regular fit, I'm happy with a medium.

        Edit: Lowering to 1 star in the hopes of getting Patagonia's attention. You made a highly technical jacket with a cut suited to unathletic bodies by making it regular fit.

        After trying on some OR and Arc'teryx size large jackets and feeling how much more movement I got out of the shoulders than I did in my medium Nano Air while maintaining a better fit at the belly (crucial for keeping in body heat), I had no choice but to return the Nano Air. I wanted to love it so badly, and the material feels amazing, but you should really pick your jackets based on fit and Patagonia is NOT there for taller, skinnier dudes. Lessons learned.

        Ok this or the nano puff hood which is gonna be warmer and more durable

        Where is the patagonia's xs size
        Here's s size are patagonia's xs size??

        Hey Jeong - Patagonia does make the Nano-Air Insulated Hooded Jacket in an XS, but we do not have any in stock and none on order. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions.

        - Kyle L. - Expert Gearhead

        I plan on getting something for New England winter hikes. I was thinking either this or the dual aspect. Ultra lite backpacking. Nothing bigger yet. Could anyone give me a recommendation? Not many reviews for the dual aspect, but the ones for the nano air sound good and up my alley given that when I get any exercise I turn into a furnace. Thank you!

        Joseph,

        Both pieces are pretty cool for sure. I'd say your priority should be to get a Nano Air, you'll love it and wear it a ton. Dual Aspect is great, but a little more of a specialized piece. Not as warm as the Nano Air, but offers a little more wind protection with that gridded soft shell.

        Im 6'2" and 160 lbs on a good day and want to know what size i need, will the large be too big? Or do i need the large for the length?

        How does this compare to the Patagonia nano puff. I would be using it for climbing and backpacking/hiking.

        Brendan, the Nano Air would be better for wearing while active (unless it is very cold & windy...then a wind shell would likely be needed over it), and the Nano Puff would be better for rest stops, belays, etc. since it is more wind-resistant. For me, the typical lightweight puffy jackets (like the Nano Puff)are too hot for wear while hiking unless it is very cold/windy, but my thermostat tends to run on the warm side. Aside from Patagonia's proprietary insulation, you would need to look for jackets with Polartec Alpha insulation (Westcomb Tango, Rab Strata, etc) or with venting side panels (Arcteryx Atom LT, etc.) for similar jackets as they are all designed for wear. during higher-output activities. I would venture to guess that the Nano Air is among the most breathable of them all.

        Can anybody comment on whether or not they've experienced any durability issues? I have read elsewhere that the back/shoulders area can pill/tear easily, which would be problematic as I would mostly be using this jacket backpacking and climbing.

        Best Answer

        Eric,

        The Nano Air is definitely a balance of being breathable and lightweight, while still as durable as we can make it. If you're carrying a heavy backpacking pack for hours, this might not be there best choice honestly. And if you're wearing a big pack, you wouldn't be getting the full benefits of the jacket. Nano Air is designed for light and fast endeavors, and is a great layering piece under a shell. So for climbing, thumbs up for sure. I'd lean towards a regular Nano Puff and an R1 hoody for true backpacking endeavors.

        Hello: I have a question regarding sizing for the Nano Air hoody. I am 5'8", 160 lbs, 40 inch chest, 33" arms, slender frame. Would the small or medium be a better fit? I like a slim cut and I don't plan on wearing a thick baselayer, so I was thinking of a small, but would not want any constriction around the chest. My hesitation with a medium size is that the arms or torso may be too long. I usually wear a medium jacket, though. Thanks!

        I think a small would be worth a shot. Definitely comes down to personal preference, but I think since you're looking for a slimmer cut you'll be comfortable in the smaller size with the stretch that the jacket provides.

        Unanswered Question

        Do you know when you will be getting more of the feather grey in medium?

        are there any M size coming in soon ??

        sur6215801,



        We have a purchase order on the way. The inventory will be seen on the site very shortly i would keep checking a few times a day so you can get your hands on some mediums as soon as we put them on the site for purchase.

        How do they compare against OR - Halogen Jacket (Outside 2014 Gear of the Year award). http://www.backcountry.com/outdoor-research-halogen-insulated-hooded-jacket-mens

        I am split between these two. Need a synthetic jacket for Mountaineering and Climbing

        Appreciate any suggestions



        Thanks

        It will come down to the rest of your system and your personal preferences. On it's own, this jacket will provide more protection than the nano air provided you don't run too hot. Personally, I find that having very breathable side panels really cuts down on my ability to keep my core warm when I stop moving (even with a shell on top). If you are going to carry a shell as well, I'd go for the nano just for that ability to keep warm. If you aren't carrying a shell the OR would be a safer bet.

        Should I get this version or the nonhooded version? I doubt I would use the hood very much but don't want to miss out if it is something people are liking alot.

        tough call for sure! The hood is sweet to have for sure, but might get in the way if you're wearing it as a mid layer quite a bit, in which case the non-hooded might be a little more comfortable. Can't go wrong either way really...

        How does this compare to the Westcomb Tango (or Polartec Alpha in general)? I'm looking for info on warmth and breathability, but any insight would be helpful. Thanks!

        Best Answer

        The Nano Air really stands in a league of it's own, and is going to breathe much better than any polartec alpha piece. It's also going to have better stretch throughout the entire jacket, as both the Full Range insulation and the nylon shell fabric stretch.

        I am looking for an all around winter jacket for Vermont (think cold, wet, and windy), that will also work for cold weather belaying and ski touring. Hoping to pair the jacket with an R1 for when it gets really rough outside. I am thinking either the Patagonia Nano-Air Hoody or the DAS parka. Any recommendations?

        The Nano Air is a great mid layer for touring or other high output activities. It is crazy breathable, so using it for an all around winter jacket in Vermont won't be ideal. Since it is so breathable it does not block much wind.

        The DAS Parka sounds like it would be the best bet for you. The Nano Air is actually closer to your R1 since it's stretchy and breathable. And the DAS is one of the warmest jackets patagonia makes, and it designed as a belay parka.

        I'm 5'11" and weigh about 165 lbs. what size would I be for the hoody?

        Hey Zachary,



        The medium should fit really well. I'm 5'10 and the same weight and love the fit. However, I would do a chest and sleeve measurement as well as that is a great indicator for fit. The medium is for a chest size of 39-41 in and sleeve length of 34 in. If you have any more questions about this piece or any other gear, please give me a call at 1-800-409-4502 ext 4446 or email at gconner@backcountry.com

        I'm about the same height/weight and went with a Large because Patagonia jackets usually run a little short in the waist. Arms are a little long, but not obnoxiously so, or long enough that I'd consider exchanging it for a medium. Haven't had a chance or need to use it under a shell to test breathability/warmth, but it fits fine underneath the couple shells I tried it on under. It fits almost identically to the one the guy in the BC.com video is wearing.

        How windproof is it? This is the critical component of any layer used for the realm of the steep.

        Best Answer

        abar,

        The Nano Air is designed more for breathability than wind protection, and hence isn't very windproof. It does well paired with a lightweight shell like an Alpine Houdini or Super Cell. If you want an insulating layer that will be windproof on it's own the regular Nano Puff is a better choice.
