Patagonia Nano Puff Vest Review

Patagonia Men's Nano Puff Vest

The Patagonia Nano Puff Vest made with 60-g PrimaLoft Gold and weighing in at 227 g (8 oz), this little piece of outerwear will always keep you warm and stuffs down to the size of a pop can.


If you’re into style the Patagonia Nano Puff Vest quilted block pattern goes well with many plains or plaids and the black or dark blue Nano Puff vest is certainly permissible in urban places under a coat or as a top layer.

It’s the extra, water-resistant, warm-when-wet piece you want just in case you need some warmth in the summer and just in case you need some extra warmth in the winter. The features we like include plenty of arm space and a little arm elastic, elastic draw at the bottom, and full-length zipper with microfiber chin guard make for a comfortable but warm active layer.


For pockets, there are two big zip pockets that can fit a small field guide, a couple of iPhone 6s, a passport, or a couple of cans, and a similar-size internal pocket does double duty- as all internal pockets should- as a stuff sack.

Overall Impression

A great piece of outerwear or something to layer with when the weather turns cold.   The Patagonia Nano Puff Vest ($149) has been a best seller for some time and will continue to be a popular piece of gear, why?  Because it’s super comfortable and works wonders and keeping your core warm.
