    All-day alpine adventurer.

    The Men's Nano-Air Insulated Jacket feels as soft as a quilt, which is surprising considering Patagonia produced it for highly active pursuits like ski mountaineering and alpine climbing. A breakthrough in breathability, the Nano-Air's air permeable nature allows plenty of airflow to keep you comfy when you're sweating on steep skintracks and cruxy pitches. Its FullRange insulation provides a surprising amount of warmth as well as the stretch required for full mobility on any mountainous adventure. Patagonia finished the durable ripstop shell with DWR to shed snowflakes, raindrops, and even dust and dirt.

    • Air permeable, insulated layer for alpine adventures
    • FullRange insulation stretches and breathes for active pursuits
    • Durable ripstop shell with water-resistance for rain and snow
    • Elastic cuffs and adjustable hem assure a secure fit
    • Slim fit layers under shells easily while reducing bulk
    • Patagonia has been crafting hard-wearing outdoor goods since '73
    • Item #PAT00EP

    Great Value (If on Sale)

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

    Pros:
    Breathable
    Warm

    Cons:
    Durability
    Packability
    Weather resistance
    Regular Fit

    Recommended Uses:
    Skiing Mid Layer
    Hiking Mid Layer
    Cool (Not Cold) Weather Belay Jacket
    Casual Use

    It seems like this jacket is on sale all the time. I don't think it is worth the full price, and if I were paying full price for a synthetic mid layer, I would probably go with the Atom LT. That being said, when you can get it for under $150, it's a great jacket. I find that it's comfortable in a fairly wide temperature range, and I don't have to take it off immediately when I start moving. The breathability is good, but be aware that this means your phone will get soaked in your chest pocket (at least in my experience). This jacket has a regular fit, so it's not super slimming, and doesn't fit very well under athletic cut shells (which can be annoying when trying to climb with this layer), but excels as a mid layer under other regular cut shells. I will use this jacket as an outer layer when it's not too cold, but agree that it doesn't block wind very well, and definitely doesn't block rain. I'm not super impressed with the durability, as I have noticed some pilling around the neck and lower back. Also, the hooded version has two chest pockets, while the non-hooded only has one. Not sure what the reasoning was behind that, but I find myself reaching for the hooded version more often.

    Great Versatility

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

    This jacket is great to use for a number of different activities from skiing to camping to around-town use. It is super comfy to wear and offers the warmth of a puffy while breathing well and not running the risk of losing its insulation value if it gets wet. It's very lightweight and easy to stuff in your bag for any occasion. I personally have used if for a number of early morning sunrise hikes and under a shell in the snow. If you are looking for a great down-alternative insulation layer, this is your jacket.

    It's alright

    High amounts of static in the past winter when wearing. Sweat goes through the chest pocket when running. Probably due to breathability of jacket. Good fit. Wish there were more secret pockets.

    Versatility is the name of the game.

    This jacket is so great for so many different seasons. I've used it every season for so many activities. Hiking, camping, snowboarding, winter hiking and hammocking. It's so lightweight that if I'm not wearing it, it's in my pack.

    Not convinced

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

    I was in the market for a lightweight mid-layer and fell for the orgasmic reviews here on BC. First of all, the jacket new looks relatively used out of the bag. The material just looks dingy/wrinkly when compared to the nano puff or other branded mid-layers/soft shells. It's also anything but resistant to staining, so be careful. Secondly, the zippers are robust enough, but the cloth gets caught up in the them way too easily, especially the pockets. One has to be very deliberate to get them opened or closed with one pull. Annoying! Underneath another layer it provides good insulation for the weight, but by itself it's totally permeable to the elements. That said, nestled in between a Cap 4 base and a GT Pro shell, I stayed relatively warm on a butt cold summit day to the top of Aconcagua, so mission accomplished. Of course, after three weeks of use and two washes, it's still stained and looks dingier than when it was new. Therefore, it's now relegated to my technical clothing box as I will only use it from now on as a non-visible mid-layer. In summary it's good as a mid-layer but little beyond that; appearance and value lacking.

    The Most Incredible Jacket

      This thing is awesome. I was so worried about size, but this thing fits perfectly. I am 6'4 and 190. I got the XL. Super comfy. I can wear it in my office at 70 degrees and walk outside at 18 degrees. They had the "put it on, leave it on" nailed!

      Slim fit

        This review is for sizing and feel only for now.... I received this as a gift in size Large. I'm 6 feet tall and 200lbs. It was a tight fit in the shoulders and chest and torso length. It was a close call, but there was no room for error, or anything else. As a casual coat with a tight modern fit, it would be ok. But I've sent it back with plans to get the XL for more roominess. The sleeves were awesome though. Length to spare, and good cuffs so they don't dangle. Very nice material and warmth to weight and comfort. This happens to me at times, as I'm stuck right between L and XL. I'll write more when the next size comes in.

        • Size Bought: Medium

        Warm, comfortable (you could sleep in it), full zip, full movement, layers well with shell, best of Patagonia.
        Ideal for hiking, climbing, and sking cc or dh. I have bought many mid layers in the past a repeat buy in the future for me.

        Must Have Jacket

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

        This jacket is liking zipping yourself up in a comfy quilt. It has the warmth of a puff jacket but is flexible and breathable. I bought this jacket for skiing but find myself wearing it every day. My other coats are now being neglected. I haven’t been rain yet so I can’t comment on how waterproof it is but I would definitely wear a shell over it if I knew there was going to be any amount of rain. I have worn this coat in a wide range of temperatures and find it perfect for anything down to 30 degrees. I would probably add another layer if it got much cooler than that. The jacket looks great on the mountain or around town and layers well both underneath a shell or over a flannel. This jacket I a must buy!

        Perfection

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Medium

        I've had this jacket for only a few days and it's already blown my mind. Living in the midwest of the states I go through 4 seasons in any given week. This jacket is great for 40 and rainy or 70 and breezy. I want to sleep in it and never take it off already.

        I bought a size medium and the sleeves are just a little long but there's not an excessive amount of slack in them, I can already tell you this is going to be my daily driver for the foreseeable future.

        Try something else

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

        It feels warm and comfortable in the store, at home, or walking the streets. I think it looks good. It's not shiny or fuzzy like most insulation jackets out there. Wind will rip through this jacket, but Patagonia admits this due to Nano-Air technology - You have to balance between breathability vs wind-resistance.

        But, the major problem is the Nano-Air technology. I think it's BS. It's not breathable "enough" for moderate to intense activity, such as hiking. You will sweat a lot, and thus soak the jacket. It is also very slow drying. It is light, but not very packable.

        The size is slim, not regular fit. But, it stretches pretty well, so I would get your usual jacket size.

        I have to disagree with regards to the breathability.

        Look, if you're expecting it to be as breathable as a light weight fleece or a t shirt, then you're going to be disappointed.

        But instead compare it apples-to-apples : the Nano Air is a midweight insulation layer. Try and find a midweight synthetic jacket on the market that is anywhere close to as breathable - I certainly haven't.

        If you can invent a jacket that is as warm as the Nano Air with the breathability you were expecting, you will be a rich man indeed.

        Packs light, runs warm.

        IT'S FLUFFY.

        I was backpacking at 10k+ elevation and was wearing this throughout the night - I barely needed my sleeping bag around my upper body at 30'F with just a t-shirt on underneath. It's super toasty despite the light weight.

        It also rained a bit and the water-proofing wasn't so great, but it's perfect for a midlayer. I've even worn it on my motorcycle in excess of 75MPH and it was fairly windproof.

        Great jacket, bizarre fit

        • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
        • Fit: Runs large
        • Size Bought: XL

        So I read all the reviews about how this is the greatest jacket ever, and it is pretty great-if it fits you. Very comfy, great stretch and breathability. I can see where the raves come from. However, it just does not fit me right. I'm a 46, 5'11" 225 and could stand to lose 10 lbs or so. So I'm not exactly a slim fit kind of guy most of the time, but I do like them for pieces primarily used for layering, like the Nano Air. I'm usually an XL or an L in Patagonia gear, depending . So I ordered both and neither one fit. The L was too tight in the shoulders but fit fine in the waist/stomach. The XL fit great in the shoulders but was voluminous in the waist - like it was designed for someone with a big beer gut. It looked ridiculous. Also the pockets should be larger. I returned both and went with an Arcteryx Atom LT in XL which fits me great.

        Put it on and leave it on.

        5 9 160 pounds medium fits perfect. small was way too small. Super comfy super warm. convenient pockets. I use this jacket for everything. Since I've got this I think I've worn it every day. One negative fabric can tend to stain so be cautious with lighter colors.

        My go to jacket

        • Size Bought: Medium

        Wear this thing everywhere. Great jacket for cold weather. I use this as part of a layer system while snowboarding in Colorado. This jacket acts as a mid-layer and I wear a hardshell for my outerlayer. Strong winds cut through this jacket but most of the time I was wearing a good base layer so it wasn't an issue. I got the hooded version of this jacket for the extra versatility. I find myself using the hood in extremely cold temperatures if I forgot a beanie. It's a little pricey but if you have the money I would buy this thing again.

        My go to jacket

        What size would you recommend for someone that weighs 176 and is 5'9"?

        Best Answer

        David, depends a bit on your chest measurement but, I would say medium. I am 5'8" 185-200 lbs and I fit in a medium. When I am closer to 200 its a bit tight but, right now @ 185 lbs it fits me perfect. Big enough to layer underneath with a light fleece like an R1 but, not baggy or annoying to climb with when its my outer layer.

        How does this compare to Down Sweater in terms of fit?

        I'm replacing my Down Sweater (size L) because it's way too baggy around mid section. So I was looking at size M for Nano Air, but since it's slim fit, it's hard to choose between M and L.
        Advice much appreciated!

        Can I use a Nano Air instead of an R1 type of fleece as a mid layer for skiing? Or is the Nano Air not *that* breathable? Or does it run hotter than a fleece?

        Would this be an appropriate mid-layer for winter trail running? Or would it get a bit too warm?

        Erik,

        I would say(for me) it would be way over kill for trailrunning even in the coldest weather. I have the Nano Air vest and it works great for that. This jacket is awesome though, looks great, very warm but breathable. I've used it ice climbing in about weather of high 20's with just 2 lightweight base layers and it was absolutely perfect! Breathed awesome when I was moving/climbing, but was warm enough when I was belaying. If it's really wet out you will need a hard shell over it as it will only repel water to a point. I am 5' 8" and a medium men's fits almost perfect. The small was just a little to tight.

        Best,

        Albert

        except for steady high winds, you could wear it as an outer layer for winter trail running. i often used it in 20-30 weather with not much underneath, either a wicking short or long sleeved shirt, and it worked well. feels a little chilly in gusts but warms up when the wind ebbs. and means a lot less sweat captured than most other solutions.

        I have a LARGE Nano Puff and an XL Piton Hybrid. Both fit me nicely. What size Nano Air should I order?

        How small does this jacket pack down? I need something very packable, and I like how the Nano Puff stuffs down to a small ball. Will this one pack down to the same size?

        I usually ski tour with a thin wool base layer under an R1 or similar fleece, a hard shell for the decent, and a hooded down sweater stashed for long stops and really cold days.



        My Patagonia down sweater was stolen :(

        Would Nano-Air be a comparable replacement for warmth?

        Best Answer

        The Nano Air would be a sweet replacement to have in your ski touring kit. It's designed to be super breathable, so it might replace your R1 in a few situations. The warmth is comparable to a regular Nano Puff, and it's slightly less warm than a Down Sweater. The breathability of the Nano Air means a decrease in wind protection though, so if it's worn without a shell over it in a cold wind, it will feel less warm. The Nano Air is an entirely new type of jacket, I love mine for ski touring and would encourage you to give it a shot, but if you're looking for a more exact replacement of the Down Sweater I would go there, or a Nano Puff.
