Nano-Air Insulated Jacket

A lot of outdoor gear is billed as "The only (insert product here) you'll ever need", and while that kind of statement can only be so true, Patagonia gets pretty much as close to the mark as you can with the Nano-Air Insulated Jacket. Designed as an active insulating layer for high-output alpine missions in cold weather, this jacket delivers toasty warmth, breathable performance, and ultimate next-to-skin comfort that'll make you want to keep rocking it around town long after you've put your ice axes, skins, or crampons away. And while Patagonia has expanded their Nano-Air line to feature lighter and more hybrid jackets, the original jacket still stands as the warmest and most versatile for all cold-weather activities.

The Nano-Air thrives during heart-pumping and heat-building pursuits thanks two factors—its innovative Full Range insulation and its air-permeable face fabric. The jacket's fabric is not only durable, snag-resistant, stretchy, and super-soft, but also allows for just the right amount of air to get in and out so that your heat won't stay trapped inside your jacket. Now, breathable shell fabrics are all well and good, but when you're dealing with an insulating piece you've got to make sure that the technology inside is up to snuff to really call it an active piece. Patagonia understands this too, which is why they developed FullRange insulation. FullRange is light and stretchy as you move up the skin track or ice-route, but also allows your heat to escape so you can maintain a comfortable internal temperature and avoid layering and un-layering as you make your ascent. Throw on a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) coating to keep you dry against steady snowfall, and you've got versatile piece that will join you on any and all winter adventures.

  • Active insulator for comfortable warmth during high-output pursuits
  • FullRange insulation regulates your temperature on cold ascents
  • Soft, durable, and air-permeable fabric lets your heat escape
  • DWR coating beads off light rain and moderate snow in the mountains
  • Low-profile cuffs are designed to easily slide underneath a shell
  • Jacket stuffs down into its own chest pocket for easy packing
  • Zippered pockets are comfortable to use with a harness
  • Slim fit and hood-less design make it ideal for layering
  • Item #PAT02XY

I ve used this jacket for entire ski season as a midlayer and I got lots of things to say about it. First, it s really soft and smooth to touch and makes you feel good and warmth/weight ratio is great. Breathability is also fabulous and that sounds great right? Actually it is not! It could be great if the jacket stayed durable but that wasnt the case. Even though jacket was only used as a midlayer under Patagonia and Arcteryx shells mostly in the resort area, It started pilling at day 1! and it wasnt only even moving parts of the jacket but entire outer shell. And after contacted with Patagonia, they offered me to shave with Razor!? and it took ours to clean the surface and resulted some minor cuts on the edges. It has been washed only once. Didnt wear individually and kept in good climate but it didnt work out. Therefore, at the end of the season, I decided to give a try to Arcteryx Proton LT and bought them.

I compared a bunch of different midlayers including the Patagonia Down Sweater, Patagonia Nano Puff, Arcteryx Atom LT, and Arcteryx Proton LT. I spend a lot of time skiing bumps, trees, and pow as well as some hiking so I decided that breathability was most important instead of total warmth that a down option might bring. I ultimately narrowed it down to the Proton LT and Nano Air. The Nano Air was a pretty easy choice once I had them both in hand. The Nano Air is: 1) more comfortable 2) looks nicer around town (the arcteryx looked a little cheap oddly enough) 3) has better breathability reviews 4) felt warmer walking around in 30 degree temps with just a base layer 5) had a better fitting collar (closer-fitting and taller)

This is an awesome jacket! I love the nice pillowy feel, it does an awesome job of keeping me warm and is insanely breathable, i was able to use it a little bit in the rain, it did a pretty good job of still keeping me warm, but I would definitely put something over it in those rainy cases

44'' chest 32'' waist 39'' hips 24.5'' arms. The fit of this jacket, if it needed more praise, is absolutely fabulous! I own, and tried, many athletic/active jackets and this is my favorite! Perfect torso and sleeve length which is rare for me, especially in a Medium size! I'm a "tweener", depending on cut/brand I'm a Medium or a Large. It's a slim fit, but it's not tight at all. I can wear a wool base, a medium weight fleece under this and be perfectly comfortable. I wore it down into the 40s with not much under it and it keeps you warm, as long as it's not too windy, then you may have to throw a shell over it. Properly layered, one could wear it in lower temps easily! In fact, I like it so much that I recently purchased the "Light Hybrid" version of it, to complement this one!

The length of the sleeves and torso is perfect, but this thing is far tighter than I'd like in the shoulders and chest. If I sized up to medium, the sleeves and torso would be too long, but the top half would fit great. Right now it's way too tight in the armpits and I'm gonna hope that it stretches out. The only other reviewer I saw wearing size small was 5'11 and 135lbs and he liked it.

2018 model is wayyyyyy too slim. They reached to conslusion that people like slim fit in the mountains, probably because the Mountains are big Fashion fans. Not as comfy as last year, and the material is more stiff. I wish next year they'll go back to roots.

I used this as my mid layer on Everest Trek in Nov. This is a really good jacket. I wore it inside a hard shell while trekking and just as an outer shell at the lower camps. It is amazingly comfortable and very breathable. I loved it and will be putting it through the wringer.

This is a pretty special jacket, so I think a lot of the bad reviews have to do with the expectations of the jacket. This thing is absurdly breathable, which means it's great for some things and bad for others. For wearing alone as your outer layer walking around town mid-winter... bad, it's going to let the air in and not keep you very warm at all. But for wearing while hiking, skiing, running, etc. in cold weather where you need some warmth, but would rapidly over heat in a traditional insulated jacket... it is incredible. To be clear, I still use this as my go-to around town jacket for fall and spring, but mid-winter you need to either add a shell over it or grab a normal puffy. The primary reason I bought this though, and the purpose it serves that makes it worth every penny to me, is for ski touring in the winter. Every other insulated jacket I ever owned I had to remove and put in my back at some point on my ski tour because even on the coldest days they would make me sweat. This jacket breathes so well that I can keep it on and fully zipped on most tours without getting excessively sweaty. Not only does that mean less over-heating on the hike, but I stay dry so I don't get as cold at the top of the hike either. Then I throw my shell on for the ski down, and with a shell over it this jacket is plenty warm. If you are just looking for a more casual jacket to wear around all winter, Patagonia has better offerings like the hi-loft down hoody (which is what I grab when it gets too cold for the nano-air).

The Nano Air is my favorite insulated jacket, keeping me warm at work, around town, and on the mountain. The stretch and breathable fabric is so comfortable you will never want to take it off.

This is the one Patagonia jacket that everyone needs in their closet! It is the perfect active midlayer for any outdoor activity that requires breathability and warmth. I mainly used it for skiing and it works perfect! It keeps me warm when I'm on the lifts and then breaths oh-so-well when I'm working hard that I dont sweat and get clammy and wet! Look no further if you are looking for that perfect midlayer. This is the best one out there!

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

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.

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.

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.
