Patagonia Nano-Air Women’s Review

Womens Nano-Air Hoody from Patagonia

When I first tried on the Patagonia Nano-Air Women’s Hoody this fall I had no idea what I was missing in my layering system.

Throughout my fall and winter adventures, I thought I was doomed to a future of stopping every ten minutes to fix my layering system—to keep myself warm and cool (the never-ending adventure that is thermoregulation).

What the heck do you wear for those temps on a hike where you’ll gain almost 4,000 feet vertical? I wore the Patagonia Nano-Air Women’s Hoody to the rescue. Getting outside in the fall is by far one of the most awkward times for thermoregulation, and Patagonia just ACED this absolutely indispensable layer. Made of entirely synthetic rip-stop material, it will keep you warm even when it’s wet and hold up to rougher shwacky-type terrain. Both the shell and lining are made with a DWR finish to repel water. Plus, the jacket has a hood . . . enough said.

Patagonia did it well—on their website they say “put it on, leave it on” and they are right. I’d wear it from the trailhead to the summit and back, and then to the Emporium for a milkshake.

Overall Impression

I’m looking forward to wearing the Patagonia Nano-Air Hoody ($299) for all of my winter mountain adventures this season and beyond!

    This review was so helpful, can’t wait to get mine! Looking forward to more of your reviews. Thanks

    • Correction! While it doesn’t pack down inside the zipper, it still weighs a nominal 11.8 oz (a tried and true ultralight backpacker friend of mine points out that stellar fact). I use it as a camp pillow by smushing all the material into the hood when I’m cozying into my sleeping bag.

      Stay rad 🙂
