    Details

    Light and warm.

    When sun is just a faint glow to the west and the stars are beginning to appear, slip into the Patagonia Women's Nano Puff Bivy Insulated Pullover and tackle those last few pitches you've been dying to climb. A brick quilting pattern keeps Patagonia's most thermally-efficient synthetic insulation in place for an even and warm fill that is also incredibly light. The windproof, water-repelling shell protects you on exposed belays, while the under-helmet hood offers an added layer of comfort and warmth.

    A kangaroo-style pocket lets you hide your hands from the wind and cold. The regular fit allows you to wear this jacket as a top-layer and doesn't add bulk when layered under a shell. A half-zip provides versatility and venting. The zippered chest drop-in keeps your essentials secure and doubles as a stuffsack for convenient carry and storage.

    The Kangaroo Pouch

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

    I bought this hoodie for my girlfriend. This is what she had to say: You can fit so much beer in the kangaroo pouch! Easily my favorite jacket. It’s even got a hood. Also, the red and turquoise color combo is fantastic. This jacket is warm enough to wear on its own for these mid-temp spring nights, but it’s thin enough to be versatile with other layers. My favorite combo so far is the Patagonia Re-Tool Snap-T Fleece Pullover underneath this jacket. Keeps you seriously warm.

    Splendid Casual Layer

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

    Patagonia had me at "bivy," always seeking that warmer, cozier layer, I was drawn to the hooded pullover design of this little number. It's been my go-to casual layer for running errands, hikes with the dog, and bopping around town.

    As a technical layer, I find the cut to be a downside. It's great to layer beneath and wear as an outermost layer in town, but I find that looseness in the hip, particularly, makes it bunch oddly underneath a shell for other uses. It does best, in my opinion, as an outer-most layer.

    The fit is great for me, allowing room for a hoodie underneath, while maintaining comfort. I also appreciate the length: just about butt-length on my 5'6" frame.

    I'm 99% of the time a medium in Patagonia, and the same holds true for the Bivy. Even with my larger bust, sometimes a fit issue, it fits supremely well in a medium

    I Believe In The Bivy.

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

    I'm a big fan of the Nano Puff series, it was no surprise that I totally fell in love the Nano Puff Bivy Pullover. It effortlessly waffles between a true technical piece and a lifestyle jacket. I'm able to wear this pullover while skiing or hiking, though I do foresee myself wearing it while climbing come warmer months. And (best of all), I can wear it to work without having to think twice about whether or not it looks out of place. The under-the-helmet hood is awesome not to mention, actually fits under the helmet, which not-so-subtly hints at the versatile design of Patagonia's products.

    Meanwhile, the coolest part about this pullover is the fact that it touts a largely recycled construction. The exterior material is entirely recycled, which is awesome if you're an eco-conscious shopper, and the Primaloft Gold Eco insulation touts a 55% post-consumer recycled content—so I'm able to feel good about wearing this piece.

    The pockets are stellar: the kangaroo pocket provides quick and easy respite for cold digits—an ideal detail that has come in handy for me when I walk the dogs. The zippered pocket keeps necessities (e.g. snacks!) close at hand and secure without getting in the way of my arms. The center front zipper allows me to dump excess body heat quickly without forcing me to remove the jacket in its entirety.

    As for the fit: I long struggled with the cut and design of the Nano Puff pullovers - I really liked the idea of them, but could never get the right fit. In the past, they were either too tight in the shoulders or too short in the torso which made reaching for holds while climbing not only difficult, but kind of unpleasant thanks to the hem lift and the restrictive shoulders.

    Thankfully, the 2017 rendition seems to have absolved this issue just about entirely. In comparison to years' prior, the Nano Puff Pullover is more "true to size" than it does run large. I typically can wear an XS or Small in Patagonia items, with XS being a more "true to fit" and a Small being more relaxed. I own a Small and the fit is definitely relaxed, thus being true to size. That being said, this is intended to be a proper midlayer, so how you prefer your midlayers to fit (be it snug or slightly relaxed) is entirely up to you. I prefer to have the option to layer underneath the jacket should the conditions call for it, hence why I chose the Small rather than the XS.

    Bottom Line: This piece provides me with the dependable and versatile performance I've come to love and know from the Nano Puff series, but now features a better fit design than years' prior.

    Best for everyday wear!

    I already have a synthetic layer, but when I saw this jacket I couldn't resist! I'm a campground host in the summers in Alaska, so I basically live outside! I had to have this jacket because I knew I would wear it almost everyday! It's great for all activities, as well as chilling at the campsite with friends! The packets on this bivy are awesome! You have the hand warming kangaroo pockets and then the zip drop in pocket that you can place necessary items that won't fall out when you go to keep your hands warm. Can't wait for the Alaskan summer with this jacket on me!

    Great pullover for climbing, hiking!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: XS

    This pullover is GREAT as many other nanopuff products. The fit is fine and the kagaroo pocket is super usefull for climbing (to put bars, any accessories, phone). It is also a good pullover for any outdoor activities. It runs large, I am tall but thin, 32B, with long arms. I returned the small that was way to baggy on me. The XS is pretty well, not to snug I have room for 2 thin layers under it. For a comparison, the small fit me perfectly for the R3 and the softshell and is slightly large for the down sweater. The arms are long enough which is great! Consider sizing down if you are between two sizes!

    Perfect Lightweight Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Small

    The thing that first drew me to this jacket was the half zip pull-over style with a kangaroo pocket and a zippered pouch pocket. I've been looking for a jacket with that combination of features for a while and was so stoked to see this. I have athletic build with broad shoulders and usually wear a S/M in tops. After reading other reviews I was unsure of what size to get but went with a small and it fits like it was made for me! It's perfect with just a long sleeve or less underneath, anything more and it would likely be too tight. As it is, it does not feel constricting at all and I would definitely feel comfortable climbing in this jacket. I do think that if I had gotten a medium it would have looked too baggy.

    As other reviewers have mentioned, the hood is kinda funny looking when it's up. Funny enough that I probably won't end up using it all that often, but on such a great jacket that's not a problem.

    Buy This!

    Buy this pullover! It is a perfect light weight insulation for any activity. I love that i t keeps you warm even when it gets a little wet. The double kangaroo picket is the best. On and off is easy with the ample zipper in front. No regrets whatsoever!

    Great jacket!

      Got this jacket for my wife and it looks great! She loves that it is a little bit different than her full zip nano puff jackets. It keeps her warm and cozy during the cold, winter months. She would highly recommend this item for someone looking for nano puff. She has worn this half zip more this winter than her full zip jacket.

      Perfect

      I love love love this jacket. It's so lightweight yet warm. Definitely my go-to piece for outdoor activities. I like storing my cell phone in the front pocket for easy access for photos and other essentials during a hike.

      Crazy technical hood

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium

      I love my nano puff and bought this for my GF for Christmas. I figured a hood and marsupial pocket would be amazing on this jacket. Unfortunately the elastic trim on the hood is so tight it makes wearing it look ridiculous. When zipped up the coverage of her face was all but a grapefruit sized hole. When unzipped, the box shape of the hood looked silly due to the tight elastic trim. If all you care about is using this as a climbing belay jacket then you'll love the performance of the nano puff, but I was hoping she'd use it like I do mine, for everything! I returned it for a hoodless jacket & she's stoked!

      A marsupium for your joey

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

      Overall, 5 stars because this jacket is sweet looking (that's all that really matters).



      STYLE:

      This is a really unique look compared to what we have available to us - the kangaroo pouch is coming back in style! The contrasted colored zippers makes the jacket pop a little more and the colors are clutch, true to form for Patagonia.



      FUNCTIONALITY:

      Let's be real folks - this jacket couldn't get more functional. Well, maybe if we added sleeve pockets and a chest zipper, but it isn't needed here. Your marsupium (derived from the Latin word "marsuppium," which means a purse or a pouch.) will hold anything you need for the day. I took a trip to Lowe's with my wallet, phone, keys, portable battery charger and 2 doorknobs in there. I looked a little puffier, but I wouldn't normally carry doorknobs. I hate purses and this thing makes it possible to ditch the bag. I also don't have to worry about things falling out of my pocket. I don't recommend actually putting a child in there - I tried and he almost fit (10 lb baby, in case you wondered). The kangaroo pouch is SEPARATE from side hand entry pocket - so it's almost like you have two pockets, but they occupy the same belly space. I find it easier to put my phone in side entry pocket and everything else in the pouch so I don't have to dig for my phone.



      WARMTH:

      If I could rate this separately, I would. I'd probably give it a 4 star. That said, we all know Primaloft just doesn't compare to real down, but it's a lot easier to take care of. It's all about preference. I tested my nano puff out in below freezing temps as my main jacket source. I was not as toasty as I am in my Ghost Whisperer: http://www.backcountry.com/mountain-hardwear-ghost-whisperer-hooded-down-jacket-womens?skid=MHW00AY-BK-XS&ti=U2VhcmNoIFJlc3VsdHM6Z2hvc3Qgd2hpc3BlcmVyOjE6NjpnaG9zdCB3aGlzcGVyZXI=



      I wear the GW every day as my main - but the nano puff just wasn't made for those temps on it's own. If it's a chilly day in the office, treat it like a hoody and it's perfect, and you might actually get too warm. Throw on a shell or another jacket over the nano puff and you will be golden - it insulates as it's supposed to. I was perfectly warm with another jacket over top and just kept the nano puff on as a hoody.



      My only other complaint is that after about 2 wears, I started to notice the primaloft fuzz coming out of the seams a bit. This is minor, but I don't want to lose all the insulation over time! It's not noticeable unless you pay super close attention.



      THE HOOD (yes this gets its own section):

      Without a scarf, my neck would have froze. Some jackets have a puffy enough hood to kind of keep the wind out when the hood is down. This hood is DESIGNED for a helmet, so it's super small laying on your back - but once you pull it up, that thing will keep ALL air out. And you will look like you are getting ready to go up in space. If you need that kind of security in your life, this hood is the bomb diggity. I don't really and only pull it up to get a few laughs. It will surely matte your hair down and leave an elastic marking on your forehead, but if you have a helmet on, that thing isn't going anywhere.



      THE FIT:

      Runs a bit small. I am a Medium in Patagonia through and through and sometimes find their stuff to run a little big. Because of the material of this jacket - it doesn't have any give or stretch, so getting it on over my shoulders and situated makes me not want to take it off a million times, but once it's on, it fits perfectly. The only part that is a bit snug is around my hips, but I have bigger hips. I am 5'2" and a size 6 or 8 in pants, but because I am shorter, it probably hits me lower that it will if you are taller and the hip thing might not even be an issue. I have a medium in this, I typically wear small or medium in Women's clothing. I feel like a large would be too big on me in the shoulders and look silly, and a small would be too tight around my hips.



      Overall, I say GET THIS JACKET!! :)

      A marsupium for your joey

      Favorite Nano Puff

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

      I have several nano puff jackets and this is my absolute favorite. It’s like the cozy hooded sweatshirt of nano puffs. Love the big hand warmer pocket and the hood for extra warmth. Fits true to size with room to layer underneath.

      In love!

      • Size Bought: Medium

      I haven't ever had a Nano puff, but I knew I would love it because I have always heard great things. My favorite feature is the front zipper pocket. I stick my phone, cards, and keys in there and know that they will not fall out. The hood is perfect because it comes all the way down to your forehead and easily fits over a beanie, or under a helmet. This jacket is perfect for fall, but then also great under a ski coat for extra insulation on those cold snowy ski days. A definite YES to the Nano pullover!

      Nano Puff Pullover

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

      I have a nano puff jacket already, but had to pick up this pullover version as soon as I saw it. I ordered size small, which is my normal size for Patagonia, and this fit exactly as expected. I love being able to put my hands in the kangaroo pocket when it gets a little chilly.

      I usually wear a medium to a large shirt, my northface coat is a medium. I have a larger chest so I am wondering if I should get a Medium or Large of the patagonia nano puff pullover.

      Hey Jessica,

      I think you would fit well in a size Medium in this pullover. I also have trouble finding clothes that fit well with a large chest, and Patagonia's styles are generally a bit boxier and accommodate our body type well.
