Moosejaw Test Lab

Patagonia invited us out to their HQ in Ventura to perform our ground-breaking Test Lab Experiments with their new Nano Air Jacket. Check out the results.

No. 1 Contortionist Test
The Contortionist Test

Patagonia designed the Nano Air Jacket to stretch and move with your body for highly dynamic activities. We hypothesized that if a professional contortionist could move comfortably in this jacket, then anybody could. We observed that the jacket's 4-way mechanical stretch easily allowed our test subject an uninhibited range of movement. So whether you're bouldering, trekking, or twisting into a pretzel, you'll never want to take it off.


No. 2 Break Dance Test
The Break Dance Test

We also wanted to test the breathability of the Nano Air's nylon rip stop shell and synthetic FullRange™ insulation. When you're going hard all day, there's nothing worse than switching out layers. The Break Dance Test allowed us to see how the jacket preformed in a high-output, start-stop activity. The test proved conclusive, as our subject successfully executed 6-Steps, Windmills, and Boomerangs. It's clear that the Nano Air's 40 CFM permeability rating makes it great for alpine climbing and mountaineering, but also those things you do every day, like throwing down some rad moves with your crew.


No. 3 Super Soaker Test
The Super Soaker Test

In our research, we found that the Nano Air's FullRange™ insulation is made of a myriad of hydrophobic fibers that repel moisture and dry fast. Paired with a Durable Water Repellent finish, even if you're a little wet, this jacket will keep you warm. We took this to the next level by tracking the test subject's core body temperature while he was exposed to increasing variables of moisture. The test subject maintained a comfortable temperature, up until the last unplanned variable set. Sometimes we get a little carried away, but it's all in the name of Science.

P.S. If you want to stay warm in the ocean, we recommend one of Patagonia's exemplary wet suits.


Bottom line, if you're looking for a versatile layer that you can put on and leave on, we're officially recommending the Patagonia Nano Air Jacket.
