I don't know a lot about science and technology but I do know that things with "nano" in them are super techy and futuristic. Patagonia was spot on when they named their Men's Nano Puff Hoody. Techy and futuristic. This insulating layer utilizes compressible PrimaLoft® ONE to trap heat close to the body while not adding excess bulk. Synthetic insulation still functions even when wet making this a very useful layer in even the most severe conditions. The 100% recycled polyester shell can handle light moisture while blocking wind and can be layered effortlessly. Add into the equation the insulated hood and the fact the whole thing can stow into its own internal.... and you get the solution to your cold weather problems.

"The best jacket for all kinds of weather."
I was a little bit worried that this jacket would be too "puffy", big and goofy-looking. However, it turns out that that is not the case. It is extremely comfortable and lightweight and fits very well. It is great for cold, cold wearher, especially with a sweater or something underneath. It is also all you need if the weather is only chilly- it is very breathable and keeps you comfortable whether you are outside or just wearing it around the house. It is exactly what I was looking for for both very cold weather and as just a casual jacket to wear around. I am 6' and around 180lbs and the Large fits perfectly. Lastly, it was delivered very quickly and the Moosejaw customer service has been great.
So we are kind of obsessed with Patagonia Nano Puff everything. The hoodie is no exception. I got the hoodie for my husband as a gift and it was a total win. We are a pretty active family - we ski/snowboard, have two boys that have us outside all the time and love walking around our city and being involved with things. He wears this coat as a single layer when we are cycling/walking around town - its great for warmth with very little bulk. That's why its also great as a "car coat" - not too bulky. Throw on an under layer and a waterproof shell and he's on his way to the slopes to ski. He has had a Nano Puff jacket (not hoodie) for about 3 years and it still looks brand new - I'm sure the hoodie will be the same. Great investment!
I have a duct taped Patagonia nano pullover that has seen several years of faithful service as:1. A mid-layer or stand alone garment.2. A pillow.3. A football.4. A dodgeball.5. A sleeping bag for my dog.6. A straight jacket for my drunken Irish buddy.Designed by climbers. Used by climbers.The only thing I missed during that time...was a full zipper and a hood.This new jacket has it all and will provide you many happy years of service and memories.*Because the new stuff pocket is square, it can double as a makeshift cornhole bag.
"Best piece of clothing I have ever owned."
Warm, windproof, water resistant (at least from snow flakes) and breathable. Basically just as advertised. I am 5 ft 10, 250 lb bodybuilder that hikes, hunts, backpacks and fishes all over. I run hot and sweat easily and am very impressed with how breathable this hoody is. I am comfortable in 15 degree cold and Chicago wind with this hoody as my only outer layer and comfortable inside away from the elements with the hoody unzipped and not sweating. The XL fits exactly how I wanted it to. Tight against my chest and shoulders to use as a mid-layer, but still designed well for functional movement, and good length. Again I am super impressed.
Down South here it feels cold as hell when it's drizzling and 38 degrees! I have had a Nano for 2 years now and love it! Whether outdoors or running up to the store in town. It's is amazingly light for the insulation provided and also works well as an under layer as well as a pillow in the hammock. Stuffs well, but is slippery to hold. And could use another inside pocket. All in all, tho it costs a lot; my wife didn't catch me ordering it; it is a nice piece of gear.
I got this jacket over two years ago for christmas. I couldn't believe how thin and light it was at first, but this jacket will keep you warm. Its my go to for fall and winter activities. It is great to be worn on its own or as an insulation layer under a shell. Its got enough room under it so you can layer with fleece or more insulation on colder days as well. And as with every Patagonia product it is back by their great warranty.
"Great Jacket that is equally functional around town as it is in the woods"
I have had some form of the Nano Puff jacket for several years now and it is my go to jacket in the fall and winter for almost all my endeavors. Whether it be just going around town or trying to stay warm on the ride into work, or hiking around the Smokies or belaying at the Obed this jacket simply gets the job done all while looking good. You might say the Nano Puff is something of a Renaissance man.
