Not too little, not too much.
When you're powering through your oatmeal before a big hike, sitting warm and cozy at your kitchen table, you can sometimes forget the early morning chill waiting just outside the door. With the Women's Patagonia Nano-Air Light Hybrid Insulated Vest tucked away in your bag, though, you never have to fear the subtle mood changes of mother nature, or your own fuzzy early-morning thought process. The hybrid construction offers a nice insulating layer with breathable panels that manage excess heat, so you can set it—and forget it.
Taking after its big sisters in the Nano-Air line, the Light Hybrid Vest contains revolutionary synthetic insulation that not only keeps your core warm when the sun's still behind a nearby hill, but also provides excellent mechanical stretch when you're on the move. Airy, wicking waffle knit panels at the back and side assist with ventilation, so you don't develop sticky discomfort with your pack on, and the hand pockets are placed for low-bulk comfort with said pack equipped. With breathable performance stretch and a slim profile, this vest is an easy addition to your hiking, touring, or climbing entourage.

The Ultimate Layering Piece
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
The Nano Air Light Hybrid vest is a must have for anyone who is active in cold weather. It is perfect for skinning uphill, resort skiing, running or hiking in cold weather. The front is like the regular Nano Air, which is already a super breathable, yet warm and the whole rest of it is made of a breathable waffle mesh fabric. It is the most breathable vest/jacket I've ever seen to date and I highly recommend it.
I found the fit to be mostly true to size, but slightly large in the core area.

I gave this as a gift to my mother and this is what she had to say "A wonderful vest. Love the material, so soft to the touch. I wear this to work in black, goes with most anything. I also like the mesh back panel."
