User Review: Patagonia Men's Nano Puff Pullover
Price Paid: Bought through a rewards program with my employer
I had the opportunity to get this item for free through a compensation program with my job. I had been in the market for a down sweater but figured I would give this a try first since it would not cost me anything.
I have had the chance to take this out for two 2 day trips, and quite a few evening walks with the dog. I am comfortable in the pullover with just a t-shirt while active(walking) down to about 25-30F. I find that this is a perfect item for layering under my hardshell while on the trail, and a handy item to throw on at rest stops to stay warm. I love that it is synthetic and not down and thus no need to be overly protective/worry about moisture.
I was quite comfy around camp with just a cap 3 baselayer , wool beanie, gloves, and the pullover with temps of around 25-30FF on my first trip. On my 2nd trip the temps were a little bit lower, but I was comfy down to 16F with only adding a 100wt fleece vest. I could easily layer under my hardshell when in camp, but prefer not to wear my hardshell in camp unless it's really needed.
One great benefit of this pullover is it is windproof, it makes all the difference in warmth on a cold breezy evening. This pullover will have a spot in my pack year round now. It is very packable, lightweight and very warm for its weight. This would be the perfect 3 season puffy, and a great layer for the colder months.
I don't think it would be worth the list price of 149, but free like mine, or a good sale and this item is definitely worth it. I highly recommend it.
