Great light jacket for cool to cold temps and as a mid layer when it is really cold. Stylish, high quality product from Patagonia that seems like it will last for years.
- Very packable
First, I want to say that I am a big fan of Patagonia gear. The quality is always excellent and I like the back to basics, no frills style of their clothing. This jacket has been on my list for a while and I finally went ahead and bought one. Once again, Patagonia did not disappoint.
This jacket is very lightweight for the warmth it provides. It works great with a light base layer as a cool weather jacket or as a mid layer when the weather gets really cold. I use it for hiking and it performed great on a recent New Year's Day hike where the temp was in the upper 30's to lower 40's range. All I had on underneath was a long sleeve Patagonia Capilene 2 shirt. I actually got a little warm with the sun shinning and took it off for a while until I cooled off again.
It also works nicely as a casual jacket around town. One really nice feature is that it packs up into one of its pockets and is great for travel.

Spend forty years designing gear for life lived in the mountains and you too might create a jacket like the Patagonia Men's Nano Puff Hybrid Insulated Jacket. This jacket features Patagonia's Nano Puff insulation up top and its iconic R2 fleece everywhere else. Treated with a water-repellent coating, the top portion of this jacket sheds weather and warms your chest, arms, and shoulders, while R2 fleece insulation breathes away sweaty moisture, stretches, and adds a soft touch to the bottom, inside and out. You're protected from the cold and free to move about as you need to during long climbs or ski approaches, without overheating. A hybrid by definition should always be the best of both worlds, and the Nano Puff Hybrid accomplishes this in spades.
