Stretch Nano Storm Jacket

While sleet, gale force winds, and pretty-darn-cold conditions would give most people a run for their money, the folks over at Patagonia recognize the unpredictable nature of alpine climbing (and consequently its allure), which is they crafted up the Stretch Nano Storm Jacket. Designed specifically for alpine climbing, the Stretch Nano boasts an amalgam of breathability, stretch, and waterproof protection so you're able to weather the storm, regardless of when and where it happens.

More specifically, the Stretch Nano's construction starts off with a 2.5-layer, stretchy, waterproof, and lightweight H2No fabric that fends off precipitation and gusts of wind alike. Then, 60-grams of Full-Range synthetic insulation (the same technology that's in Patagonia's famed Nano Air jackets) not only offers warmth, but stretches with you to provide unobstructed mobility. And to top it all off, the insulation is paired with an incredibly breathable liner that moves excess heat away from your body, without letting the elements in.

Aside from warmth and weather protection, Patagonia outfitted the Stretch Nano with plenty of alpine-ready features for your ascents. For starters, the articulated pattern and seamless shoulder design of the jacket offer an unimpeded and enhanced range of motion, while the helmet-compatible hood sports an integrated, locking drawcord system for a fully adjustable, fine-tuned fit that's easy to use with a gloved hand. Not to mention, the underarm ventilation system boasts waterproof, two-way zippers to assure easy, on-the-go body temperature regulation. And of course, the hem is fashioned with the same technology as the hood to keep the elements at bay.

So excited to have an insulated jacket that moves quite freely. Still room for a layer inside, but on most days you won't need it. It is warm and comfortable. Love it.

I gave this jacket to my girlfriend and she can't say enough positive things about it. The stretch material ensures you can move without restriction. The insulation is warm but packs small making this a great layering or traveling piece. Oh, and the H2No does an excellent job repelling any moisture you might encounter while you're venturing into the wilderness. This jacket looks great. You can wear it on the slopes with confidence that you're protected from even the worst elements. It's stylish enough to wear right into the bar or pub for an apres session, and afterwards you can wear this to dinner with your mates. I purchased a medium. She is 5'6" and 120lbs and the medium fit well. If you want a snug fit the small would fit someone her size.

I'm really digging the Stretch Nano Storm, a true wolf in sheep'€™s clothing. I know that is not exactly how the saying goes, but it's true! She is sleek enough to wear as an everyday winter jacket, but packs a big technical punch to kill it on the ski hill. I took this jacket out for a spin at Squaw Valley this weekend and she kept me warm and dry with minimal bulk. Then I thought, let's keep this party going and wore her to one of Reno's signature holiday pub crawls. Can your winter jacket do that? A++.

Perfect Jacket

This was given as a gift but I have positive feedback to share. This jacket is so comfortable and moveable. The stretch in this jacket is one of the best features. It is warm and breathable, perfect for battling the elements.


Is this jacket warm enough for snowboarding in the northeast, where temps are typically 10-25 degrees F but sometimes colder....? love how light and simple this jacket is, and the stretch fabric seems amazing for mobility. Would wear over fleece or could even do down sweater. Thoughts? Amy

Hi Amy! Great question! The answer is it depends. Mostly on if you run cold or hot and what type of layers you'd have to go wtih it. If you are someone who gets cold easily, it may be worth considering sizing up so you have more room for layers underneath. Alternatively, if you have some great warm baselayers you really like you'd probably be alright going with your normal size. Lastly, a little pro tip! You could always order it and call in and speak to one of us if it doesn't work out and ask for a free return label, we are typically quite willing to waive the return shipping cost. Feel free to shoot me an email if you need any further assistance.
