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.

High Breathability with Zero Durability
- I've used it several times
- True to size
- Size Bought
- 5` 11"
- 135 lbs
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.

Great mid-layer for active skiing
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- True to size
- Size Bought
- 5` 11"
- 142 lbs
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)
