Sometimes shiver-proof protection comes in small packages—like our Nano Puff® Vest. It punches above its weight, trapping your heat with PrimaLoft® Gold insulation (60-g) wrapped in a windproof and moisture-shedding 100% recycled polyester ripstop shell with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. The vest has a shaped fit and a soft, wicking interior storm flap and zipper garage for chin comfort. Other fine points include a drawcord hem, two zippered handwarmer pockets and an internal chest pocket (with clip-in loop) that doubles as a stuffsack.
  • Lightweight ripstop recycled polyester shell fabric has a DWR (durable water repellent) finish
  • The most thermally efficient synthetic insulation available; water-repellent, compressible 60-g PrimaLoft® Gold insulation has excellent warmth-to-weight ratio and maintains 96% of warmth, even when wet
  • Brick quilting pattern with horizontal quilt lines on side panels stabilizes insulation and uses durable thread for abrasion resistance
  • Center-front zipper has wicking interior storm flap and zipper garage at chin for next-to-skin comfort
  • Two zippered handwarmer pockets have cleanly finished zipper garages; zippered internal chest pocket doubles as a stuffsack with a reinforced carabiner clip-in loop
  • Drawcord-adjustable drop-tail hem seals in warmth
  • Shell and lining: 1.4-oz 22-denier 100% recycled polyester with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. Insulation: 60-g PrimaLoft® Gold 100% polyester
  • 240 g (8.5 oz)
  • Made in Vietnam.

Water Resistant

 (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.


We use PrimaLoft® insulation inside insulated garments for its warmth, compressibility, and soft comfort. While the human body uses energy to stay warm, PrimaLoft insulation uses a patented microfiber structure to help the body retain warmth and conserve energy.

The proprietary ultra-fine fibers of PrimaLoft insulation form a tight collection of air pockets that trap heat from your body and keep the cold out, providing an excellent warmth-to-weight ratio. When insulation gets wet, it loses these air pockets and consequently, its insulating properties. PrimaLoft ultra-fine fibers were developed to be water resistant so your insulation stays drier and maintains its insulating properties even when wet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vest I got this at an outlet store so got a great value. Working in the Silicon Valley this is suitable for the office. I can wear it alone or under a jacket as it is light an thin but very warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the Best I've recently purchased my second Nano Puff Vest. My first one is the most versatile piece of outwear I own. It can be layered with any other piece from R1 to R4. It's completely packable. It can be worn spring, fall and winter. I would size up one size as it seems to be cut slightly smaller than than the earlier, Puffball, model.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bring back the old puffball vest! Replaced my ancient puffball vest that finally was recycled after a good long life. This version is way wimpier (less insulation) and waaaayyy to small. I have worn a large in Patagonia for 25 years, this fit like heat shrink tubing. Please bring back the old version and cut!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As designed...great vest. Works as designed. Well constructed, size is accurate. Nice with a thick shirt underneath and scarf on cold days from car to office. Great style. No brainer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Puffball vest Just received my second puffball (now nano puff) vest. My first isn't quite worn out, but is now too ratty to wear at work, after 20 years of use. I bought my first one, used, from a fellow guide in Baja in 1996 or so. The vest already had one repair, well sown, that has never needed further attention. This has been my most-worn piece of gear. Ever. My wife has worn it, my kids have worn it, and I'm wearing it now. It's worn a few meals and drinks; has a tear in the back now, but still my go to piece of insulation. Small enough to fit any bag, and a perfect weight for keeping the cold off or warming up. This vest has paddled, skied, and camped in Canada, the US, England, Chile, and Norway, and never complained once. The new vest is just fine and should last me the next 20 years. I miss the pullover and the new one fits more snugly around the waist (no, I didn't get fat) but I'm sure we'll get along fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vest I'm 5'11", 165 slim build. I purchased this vest in a medium. I've owned the nano puff for a year and totally destroyed the product in every environment possible. Its incredibly durable and fended off several attacks from climbs, my 80lbs dog and my two kids. The vest is extremely lightweight, but a perfect layer to add additional warmth to your torso -I use it as a base layer on super cold days, or stand alone for some style and warmth going to the office. The color is slightly lighter grey than in the pictures. I have no negative things to report. This is a solid product, durable 10/10, warm 10/10, attractive 10/10, for high speed activities 10/10, fit 10/10.
