Because otherwise, getting out of your sleeping bag on chilly mornings sucks.
Who likes getting out of sleeping bags in the morning when it's cold out? Nobody, unless you have the Patagonia Men's Nano Puff Insulated Jacket to ease the chill. With the recycled polyester exterior and PrimaLoft One insulation, your top half will feel like you never left your sleeping bag. Wear this Nano as your top layer on chilly backpacking mornings, and layer it under your ski shell for mid-winter storms. When it gets too warm, you can pack it down into its chest pocket and clip it to your pack or harness until you need to get hot and cozy again.
- Ultralight recycled polyester has a DWR finish to repel water, and wind glides over its slick coating so you stay warm in cold conditions
- Insulated with PrimaLoft One for warmth (even if the insulation gets damp) and compressibility
- Jacket stuffs into its chest pocket, and pocket has a loop to hook to your carabiner
- Dual-adjusted drawcord hem keeps cold out and heat in
- Two hand-warming pockets and one chest pocket store small items
- Item #PAT3379

This is the lightest jacket you will ever own. I prefer a mid layer WITHOUT a hood, which is why I picked this nano over the hooded version.
This jacket is surprisingly warm, but very breathable making it perfect for every trip.
I have also had this jacket soaking wet many times and it is dry within the hour.
I am from Minnesota, where the temps become incalculable in the wintertime with the wind chill. I layer this nano under a heavy jacket when the temps are below zero. I layer under a hard shell when I am in the mountains or out snowboarding. I layer under a soft shell if I am in dryer conditions or paddling a canoe in colder weather. This nano is fine to wear by itself when hiking and needing something that will breath.
It also comes along with me on summer trips where I can wear it early in the morning when it's still chilly.
It is so versatile and light that I immediately throw it in my bag before EVERY trip. I don't leave home without it.
I Dig it!
I love this jacket. It's incredible how warm it is. I rarely use a heavy winter jacket anymore. It's nice to be able to stuff the jacket into its own pocket and clip to my bag when backpacking. My only complaint is the durability. The threads on the outside of the jacket are constantly getting snagged on things and I've had to take it to a seamstress twice. It would be nice to have those outer threads more hidden or covered. Overall, it's a great jacket.
Keepin me quite warm when it just started to sprinkle some snow up by the Maroon Bells. Packable and light enough for some fast paced elevation gain! I recommend!

Lightweight and easy to pack, the nano puff is a versatile piece that you'll love.
My everyday wear jacket
Love the lightness, packability and ridiculous warm out of something so small. This jacket was the first time I had to use Patagonia's repair policy to because of a crazy all teeth dog named Charlie. Happy to say that the repairs came back beautiful and I have my favorite jacket back in one piece.
packs down really small

Patagonia Nano Puff Insulated Jacket
how do you wash the nano puff insulated jackets
Anyone else have trouble with the stitching coming undone on the Nano Puff? I love the jacket but insure of the quality.
This is definitely covered under Patagonia's iron clad guarantee if you're having problems. Feel free to contact Patagonia directly at 800-638-6464 and they will work with you to repair or replace the jacket.
which Patagonia is warmer- nano jacket or down sweater?
Both are very warm. Nano puff is water resistant and not as bulky as the down sweater. Also has a slightly slimmer fit.
Is this jacket reversible? It looks like that in some of the photos.
While you can wear this jacket however you want to, it is not meant to be a reversible jacket. We include the inside view of the jackets to show construction of the piece. Some brands can have a jacket that looks great on the outside, but is actually constructed very poorly. Showing the inside lets you get a better look at the seams. Patagonia is well known for having some of the most well made items on the market, and if you are interested, I would definitely encourage you to check this one out.
Is this synthetic good for inactivity warmth, like down is?
Basically my purpose is to have a packable jacket that I can throw on when I stop activities.
Hey Tim! the synthetic performs great as an insulator and its benefit over down is that it can help keep you warm even if it gets a little damp. This would be a great option to keep around if you need lightweight, but warm layer for staying warm in between different activities.
My cycling layering is UnderArmor, if somewhere below freezing to zero I add Columbia Omniheat , and then vented cycling windbreaker jacket. If I ever flat tire, or breakdown I'll be in trouble. The packable jacket is something of a emergency bail out. Same concept of hauling sleeping bag around in your vehicle all winter.
I suppose the next question is Which packs smaller down or synthetic. Or is that splitting hairs?
Tim, this jacket packs down very small into the inside pocket. I think this packs down smaller than down, but that is my experience.
How does this piece compare to the Marmot Quasar? I think the Marmot is down and this is synthetic so this may hold heat better when wet. But what other practical differences should I expect? Thanks.
Hey Tyler, the biggest difference between the two will be cost. Down, and especially the highest quality of downs like what is used in the quasar costs more upfront. This will be a comparable piece at a much lower price.
What temperature range do you think this jacket works best in? Also, can this jacket zip into an outer shell?
I am going on my second year using this jacket. The temperature rating is up to you as that really depends on what you are doing and your other layering. I have used this as everything from a casual jacket in 40-50 degree weather to a layering piece in sub-zero temps, while alpine climbing and backcountry skiing. This does not zip into an outer shell, but is very trim so you would have no problem fitting that under a shell. I have been nothing but please with this jacket so far. If you have any other questions or want to get an order set up, I would be more than happy to help!

I am 6 foot and 160 pounds. I am debating whether or not I should get the medium or large. I don't want to be swimming in it, but I want to make sure it's long enough for my waist. What size would be best for me.
I'd try a medium first if I were you. You're right on the cusp of needing a large for sure, but depending on torso length medium could fit just right if you're looking for a little more of a trim fit.
Can you please tell me the back length and sleeve length of a large vs an extra large? Thanks.
bought a medium and its good everywhere except the lenght, was wondering the difference between the large and medium if its to much, im 5'10 and the medium barely is on my waist.
Just wondering if a large in this brand would be comparable to TNF or Columbia
Fit here should be very similar to regular fit jackets from other brands.
In the picture the black and gray jackets look to be more form fitting vs the pictures of the other colors. Is this the case?
Fit is exactly the same across all colors. Looks like on the grey and black they were put on body forms and then pinned back for some reason, definitely not the best representation of the overall fit.
I agree with Ty. I have this jacket (its fantastic by the way) and it fits like a normal jacket would fit. Enough room to wear a t shirt, and vest underneath. The arms are a little longer (this is good for movement) and they are not bulky.
What is center back length of a medium?
When will you have Malachite Green in Large back in stock? I've been waiting to order one!
We have a big order of Malachite Green in size large on the way. They should be available for purchase early-mid December.

Where can I find the old Nano Puff. I really dislike the new longer sizing.
I live in MN, would this jacket be warm...
I live in MN, would this jacket be warm enough to wear around town in 0-20 degree weather (over a sweater or a long sleeve shirt)? Thank you.
The Nano Puff isn't designed to be the warmest jacket, but over a sweater or a decently warm shirt I think you'd be ok down into the temps listed.
Any way to be alerted if the Black in Large...
Any way to be alerted if the Black in Large goes on sale? I just can't justify the price, but have tried this on and love it. No one...NO ONE puts this on sale ever?
Unfortunately we don't have anything set up on our sit for alerts on specific items but if you sign up for our emails we let you know what promos are going on at any given time. In all honesty though I would expect that by the time this jacket does go on sale we will be about out of the black option as it is the most popular color. Our semi annual sale should be coming up soon though so just keep checking back and cross your fingers, maybe this will be on the docket.

would this be a good breathable mid layer?
this wouldn't really be a great "breathable" mid layer. for an active mid layer, something like the Patagonia R1 or Ibex Shak would be a better option.
I'm with Chris on this one; this is certainly more of an insulator than it is a piece you would want to be doing moderate to extreme aerobic activity in. You would sweat like a pig, I would think.

I'm 5'9+", size 39 jacket, is med the best fit?
The Medium will be the best fit throughout the chest for you for sure, you could get a Large as well, it would just be slightly more loose fitting.
