Wear the windproof, water-resistant Patagonia Nano Puff as an insulating or outer layer in cold climates. It's made with incredibly lightweight and compressible insulation that warms even when wet.

Rated5out of5byTexanCamperfromMy new favorite light jacket!I bought this product for a trip to new york city over spring break 2014 (Mid-March). This product went above and beyond my expectations for a light jacket. It is so light I barely felt it and it still provided warmth for the cool mornings in the city. I felt it was adequate for temperatures down to 40F with a t-shirt and would be find down to freezing with a long sleeve shirt. Overall a great, light jacket.

Rated4out of5byAquaticdocfromComfortable, useful and attractiveThe full zip I'm now wearing is a replacement for a half-zip pullover that unravelled at the sleeve. No sign of that in the new one, but I really liked the pullover, although the full zip is probably more practical. I've not tried to zip it into itself yet, but did so many times with the pullover so that it packs into nothingness, but pops out, is warm and very wind-resistant. In all, one of the most useful outdoor garments I own. The XL full-zip is bigger than the XL pullover, which fit more like a sweater.

Rated4out of5byer to the winfromGreat product!Awesome jacket and worth the price. Kept me warm this past NYC winter (snowmageddon for your average typical NYer) with a button down and a light sweater underneath.
The lightweight and flexibility of the jacket enables me to be mobile and agile as I constantly dodge lackadaisical and green tourists on my way to work by Grand Central.
It also is so light and easy to pack that I can jam it into my snowboard bag or even into the last reaches of the laundry bag because it's that full and I want to carry everything in one trip.
The color (nickel) and fit sometimes makes me look like a spaceman amongst the suits, but I know that I'm ridiculously warm as their inferior high collar jackets easily succumb to the wind.
Four stars cuz the stitching along one of the arms started coming apart... but REI is awesome and replaced mine.

Rated5out of5byNancy TravelerfromA great lightweight jacketMy husband loved my jacket so I bought him one as a gift. He loves the fact that it's so lightweight but still keeps you warm. I got him a larger size so he can use it as a lighter final layer.

Rated5out of5byColoMtnManfromMore than expected.I have looked at this jacket for years, but thought this jacket was overpriced. This winter I started looking for a lightweight insulated jacket for casual wear and travel. After looking at numerous jackets, I settled on the Nano Puff. It fits well, is stylish, and very warm for the weight. I would not wear this during my outdoor endeavors, I think I would shred the lightweight material. Expensive, but I like it.

Rated3out of5byLucas AfromGreat jacket, disappointing new fit.Let me preface this by saying that I have a previous-generation Nano Puff and love it. I wear mine constantly and wanted to pick up another in a different colorway.
I was really disappointed to find that Patagonia significantly changed the silhouette from my model year (a 2012/2013 model) to the 2013/2014 model. The new Nano runs significantly smaller than the old once. Where my original Nano Puff is a size medium and fits me (6', 185lbs.) great with room for a fleece under and a trim enough silhouette to fit under a shell, the new one in a size medium is incredibly tight in the chest and noticeably tighter along the torso. To wit: while I can do the jacket fit test (bear hug yourself and see if the jacket feels excessively tight or pulls anywhere) with no problem in my old jacket, the new one makes me feel like too much sausage stuffed into not enough casing. The large is still too big for me.
Otherwise, it's a great jacket and keeps or improves everything that made the old Nano so great—it's light, it's surprisingly warm, it sheds light precipitation and blocks wind pretty handily. Just be warned if you're coming from the old model: the new one will fit you differently.

Rated4out of5byjnichols959fromGreat wind protectionI got this jacket as a christmas gift to replay my very, very old north face down jacket. I loved the jacket but was bummed to see the seam under the arm break. I had worn it quite a bit for a few weeks after getting it but nothing crazy.
I went back to REI to replace it and was open to the idea of finding a functionally equivalent jacket that had an external breast pocket. I tend to keep my phone there and unzipping two zippers to get to your ringing phone is a small but frequent pain. I exchanged it for the REI Revelcloud jacket at the salesperson's suggestion after learning it basically had the same PrimaLoft insullation.
After wearing the REI Revelcloud outside around town (during low 30s Portland OR winter with 10-20 mph winds) I was immediately disappointed with the wind resistance compared to this jacket. I had heard about the Nano Puff's efforts to be a bit more wind resistant but honestly I had kind of dismissed it as marketing. They're both mid layer jackets that performs best with a shell right?
I didn't want to abuse the REI warranty but this jacket performed so much better in mild to strong winds that I couldn't bear to put on a shell every time I wanted to be out in the cold with the wind blowing. I knew the Nano Puff would provide so much better wind protection and I really, really missed it - even with the internal breast pocket. I ended up exchanging the REI Revelcloud for the Nano Puff and am happy again. This jacket just works so well as an outer layer that I don't want to have to worry about throwing a shell on every time it's cold and the wind is blowing (or my movement is creating relative wind). If I know it's wet then I'll bring a shell but for now, I'm just going to see how far this jacket can take me without it.
