"One of the single most useful pieces of gear I own"
I've taken this jacket on just about every adventure i've been on in the last two years. I pretty much lived in it while climbing Rainier and its an absolute must have for ice climbing in New England. It blocks wind and keeps me warm and dry while sailing in Maine. Plus, it looks pretty cool when bar hopping around Boston. The jacket is warm, breathable and light weight. Its water resistant and dries quickly which is great for climbing on snowy, wet days. Bottom line, this jacket is super versatile and does its job well.My only complaint is that the hood is not really helmet compatible. You can wear it under your helmet, but not over a helmet.
"The insulating layer of choice for fast-moving activity"
Since purchasing this hoody, I have worn it post-holing for 12k in 15 to -10 degree weather in the Carson Wilderness under a Patagonia super alpine jacket with nothing but a capilene t-shirt underneath. Was comfortably warm and the minimal bulk of this hoody really facilitated some scrambling and the climbing I was in pursuit of pretty well. Outside of the woods, this jacket is just stellar for wearing around town on cold days, although the jacket is exceptionally warm so I would limit it to late fall-winter months. Fit is good, 5'9", 175 lbs., broader shoulders than most and well-muscled (marbled as well), loose without being bulky, arms are a bit long but preferred for secure wrist coverage. Added bonus, this hoody proudly served during a training rotation in the Mojave in January, (rough, borderline maniacal abuse) and came out with two small tears from some sharp rock, nothing E6000 can't fix.
I still haven't tested outdoors, or in colder temperatures, but for short commutes in the city has worked great. It has great wind resistance, really warm, and it looks great. One of the best attributes is that packs into its own pocket, which is nice when you don't want a buldky backpack.
This Jacket works great. I purchased it for a backpacking trip this summer for the cold mornings at high altitudes. I have been using it around campus and it is one of those jackets that are always the right temperature. The hood is fairly small, but for cold mornings that will be great. I would recommend wearing it with a shell because it is made to be insulation so the rubbing from the backpack can cause the jacket to wear more quickly. If you buy it for its intended purpose it is worth it!
I've had this jacket now for 2 years and it is my go to piece in just about any condition. It works great as an around town jacket, as a layer under a shell in wet weather, or a standalone in 40-50 temps. With a fleece under, this jacket will keep you warm in temps around freezing. It is super lightweight and packs EXTREMELY small... think the size of a grapefruit. It is great at keeping the wind out. It is not a waterproof jacket, but holds up well to light rain/moisture. Being a Patagonia product, I know this will last for decades, so it was worth the price. I'm 6'2, 215lbs and the large is a perfect size for me with space for a base layer or fleece if needed.
This jacket fits very well and is very warm. The hood fits nicely and could fit under a helmet fairly easily. The best feature is it's weight. This jacket is super light, I don't go anywhere without it.
Took this from the Patagonia site because I had the same question and I thought I would share."If you are going to be in cold, dry conditions, the down hoody is the hands-down choice. When it's dry, no other insulator can match down for warmth per ounce.But the key word is "dry." If you are planning to be out in wet conditions, it's the Nano, again hands down; the synthetic insulation is not nearly as compromised by wet as down - which is worse than useless if it gets soaked."and that's why I got the Nano Puff Hoody
The thing is absolutely windproof, and melting snow drips off easily. Mixed snow gets it a little wet, but I've never soaked it through in some pretty intense storm, and it's never lost its warmth in the wet. The hood adds like 20 degrees of comfort instantly, but it is on the small side. That makes it insulate well with no pockets or dead spots, but if you have a long neck like me, you look like a turtle. But if it keeps me warm, it keeps me warm, so I wholeheartedly recommend it. Oh, and light. Sooooo light.
I'm 5'8, 150lbs and got a small. Fits perfectly. Wore this snowboarding in Heavenly, with merino wool t-shirt and longsleeve underneath, and a shell on top. Temps ranged from 40 (in the lift line and in the sun) to about 20 (on the mountain with wind chill - winds were probably about 30 mph). Absolutely incredible warmth for the weight and bulk. Doesn't even weigh ONE pound! It's so light that you'll forget you're wearing it, and takes up very little space when packed down. Hood is a little small, but it might fit well under a helmet. Zipper goes over my chin when zipped all the way. This is my new snow staple. GET IT!
Loved this thing. Kept me warm with nothing but light base layer underneath. Cuffs were very comfortable and just loose enough to make rolling up the sleeves easy when you need to reach for something and you don't want to snag or get it dirty. Thought the hood was a lil tight but appreciated the close warmth when the wind came with the chill.
