    Nano-Air Jacket

    Tired of being bound by motion-inhibiting, moisture-susceptible down coats, Patagonia developed the Men's Nano-Air Jacket. Its lightweight yet durable nylon ripstop fabric with mechanical stretch allows unrestricted mobility in the mountains, with low-profile FullRange insulation to give you regulated and breathable warmth on even the most strenuous ascents. An added DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish applied to both the shell and lining helps it shrug off passing showers and sudden flurries, and the slim fit allows it to layer nicely under your shell when more serious storms strike. Great for high alpine ascents, multi-pitch climbing, or long days on belay, the Nano-Air will keep you warm and dry, without holding you back from making that last move.

    • Give yourself warmth and mobility for your entire alpine mission
    • Stretch fabric offers unrestricted mobility for hard-to-reach holds
    • FullRange insulation keeps you comfortably warm on strenuous climbs
    • DWR finish repels light precipitation for alpine assurance
    • Low-bulk welted pockets wear comfortably with pack or harness
    • Stretch cuffs and adjustable hem seal out elements
    • Layers easily for multi-season and multi-sport use
    • Item #PAT01ZY

    Gross Interior

    • Size Bought: L
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    I bought a black L size nano air. The lining of the jacket I received is covered with lint, dust and hair (a wide variety of white, black, blonde and brown; short and long). GROSS! Where did Backcountry.com get this jacket? In terms of its quality and design, compared with the Arcteryx(atom), North Face (ventrix), and BlackDiamond insulation jackets I own, the nano air is at the bottom. The quality of Patagonia has gone down in the last couple years.

    Nice Jacket!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: small
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    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

    Yes, I love it!!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 177lbs

    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!

    Sizing

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    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.

    I liked last year's Nano Jacket

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small

    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.

    This is a technical layering piece. It is slim because ideally, you would wear a wool base underneath, then this, then a shell. The jacket is made to fit without bulk, not because 'the mountains are big fashion fans'. The size chart for this is spot on!

    "They reached to conslusion that people like slim fit in the mountains, probably because the Mountains are big Fashion fans."

    Huh? It's a midlayer piece. It's an athletic fit so that you can easily throw a shell over it. You don't want a boxy/bulky fit for being active and utilizing a good layering system with it. The fit is perfect for its intended use!

    I agree. not every piece has to be a super technical layer all of a sudden. Personally I'm discouraged from purchasing from Patagonia when I need to buy one hoody to ski in, another hoody to wear around town, and a third hoody to climb in, all bc the fits of each one are all so different. It's ridiculous. Keep the highly technical pieces for your niche customers, but don't ditch your tried and true base.

    Damn Good!

    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.

    Damn Good!

    Game Changer When Used Correctly

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 200lbs

    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).

    Warm and Cozy

    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 160lbs

    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.

    I have seen the best of all

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

    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.

    The Best Active Midlayer

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    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!

    Skiing 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.

    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.

    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.
