Kris from Wisconsinwrote a review of Patagonia Stretch Nano Storm Insulated Jacket - Men's on January 18, 2018
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
For the most part this coat lives up to its reputation. Its warm and weather proof. With a T-Shirt and a Patagonia R1 mid-layer, this coat is warm down to about 10 degrees (active), before you start to feel the cold creeping in. Any lower and you will need more layers, but that's not too often.
Its lightweight, which is a big plus. And its slightly stretchy and breathable.
The fit is good. I'm 6'0'', 185 lbs. Slight beer belly but otherwise I'm in good shape, and I have broad shoulders. There's some room in the torso to wear mid layers if you want, although the arms are a little bit slim fitting compared to the fit of the torso. Arms run slightly long compared to other Pata stuff in the same size. Which is a good thing for a technical jacket. And I REALLY like that its a little bit long for its size. With some tension on the waist cords, the weather can't creep in up under your waist.
If you want a weather proof nano-puff, this is your jacket.
2 Things I DONT LIKE:
1) The hood is sort of a joke. I don't see how this can fit a helmet underneath. Impossible. I have a large head (7 3/4 fitted hat), but its just way too small. Its snug when I just wear a beanie under it. They also gave the hood too much peripheral vision. Wind goes right in at the temples and chills your face. And while the collar does come above the chin and stops near the lips/nose, I would've liked it to come up another inch to help make this coat truly weather proof. In cold, windy weather the hood and collar (face guard) makes or breaks a coat. This coat just makes it over the hump in that regard.
2) The internal glover warmer pockets are very shallow. I wouldn't trust carrying anything in them for fear of things dropping out. I don't understand the design of these pockets.
Otherwise a great coat!
