Patagonia Nano Puff Jackets
About Patagonia Nano PuffsPatagonia’s iconic puffer jacket functions as a generalist, providing you with comprehensive weather protection, warmth, and irrefutable style for a never-ending list of outdoor excursions.
The Do-It-All Three-Season JacketWhen it comes to a classic cornerstone of the outdoor apparel market, no piece of clothing is more recognizable than Nano Puffs. Developed in 2009, this jacket has become a core product of the Patagonia collection ever since. Designed for all seasons and mildly cold conditions, these coats are an essential part of any serious adventurer's wardrobe. While the Nano Puff is not intended for extreme arctic conditions, it’s great for the general unpredictability of the weather that’s experienced in Canada.
While not as warm as its Down Sweater Jacket counterpart, the Nano Puff features respectable insulation that keeps the core of your body warm. 60 grams of PrimaLoft Gold insulation can comfortably withstand temperatures as low as -10 degrees Celsius. Even if it’s colder, these jackets... can easily accommodate a warm mid-layer, such as the Patagonia Synchilla fleece, or even function as a mid-layer itself for bulkier jackets.
Synthetic insulation is the primary advantage of the Nano Puff Hoody and Jacket. Highly water-resistant due to the DWR outer layer, these coats can endure an impressive amount of rainfall without ever shortening the jacket’s lifespan.
Compressibility for Easy PackingPatagonia understands that you’ll be taking its gear deep into the backcountry. To accommodate this, various features are implemented into these jackets that make them stand out from other products. The Nano Puff conveniently stuffs into itself via the interior pocket, turning the coat into a small zippered package that can be fit into a day pack. When you need to shed layers, Nano Puffs are easy to break down and store away, never taking up too much precious cargo space. Staying true to their climbing routes, once packed the jacket features a reinforced loop that allows it to be sturdily attached to a harness by a carabiner.
This adaptability is what has made Patagonia a cherished outdoor brand for millions of mountaineers and trekkers. Always conscious of the needs of its customers, the brand continually dedicates itself to prioritizing function for the range of activities its products go through. Despite this utilitarian and minimalist approach, Nano Puffs are still incredibly fashionable and can be worn on the streets just as confidently. The Puff Vest for both women and men is a classic statement piece that pairs well with Baggies Shorts for late summertime temperatures.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Nano Puff warm enough for winter?
By itself, the Nano Puff may need some additional layers to endure the coldest days of winter. However, during the beginning and end of the season, this jacket is normally fine just by itself.
What’s the difference between Nano and Micro Puff?
The Micro Puff is a lighter and more compressible version of the classic Nano Puff, making it exceptional for long backpacking trips. It’s also warmer as well. However, the thicker outer layer of the Nano Puff makes it more durable and weather resistant.
How to layer Patagonia Nano Puff?
The Nano Puff is a more tight-fitting jacket meaning it can be easily worn as an underlayer for heavier-duty coats. If wearing the Nano Puff as an outer layer, look for a mid layer that’s tight to the body so that bulkiness doesn’t occur. Thermal long sleeves are a great option.
