Light and WARM
So lightweight it feels like you arent wearing a jacket, yet so warm at the same time!! I live in Colorado and spend 365 days a year outdoors, this jacket works well in a range of temps; fitted enough to work as a mid layer when its below 0 or on its own well below freezing.

Best weight to warmth ratio I've ever had
This jacket is super lightweight, but don't let that fool you!!! The warmth, and wind blocking ability is beyond amazing. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars: for my petite frame the arms are long and somehow the bottom of the jacket tries to ride up. I think it is supposed to sit closer to the waist, but for me it ends up being ha... Read Morelfway down my hips which makes it kinda tight at the bottom. If they had a petite small I'd exchange it (bought a xs) so i could fit a sweatshirt under it.

Lightweight and toasty!
Initially I ordered a Medium. It is hard to figure out sometimes because I am in between sizes (S/M). Received the jacket and I liked it but the sleeves were super long and the overall fit was a bit too loose. Called Customer Service and in a couple of minutes a size Small was sent to me.

Good on you Patagonia for another useful product that I will use for a longtime. (FYI-I my first synchilla jacket from the 80s is in great condition and I still use it). Saludos
Comfy and lightweight
Ill preface this with the fact that I HATE coats. Im the weird person who is always cold and hates the cold but also hates tons of clothing.

Not my ideal fabric
I was trying to replace a black Patagonia hoody that I had lost and the fabric on this on wasn't as comfortable, nor the fit. I'm going to keep looking.

Warm but runs very small in the arms
Let me start by saying I have just about every variety of patagonia puff jacket, I love and abuse them all. I have an athletic, climber build and am a Med in every other patagonia jacket.

Less warm than anticipated
I purchased this jacket to replace my 10 year old Nano Puff. I was looking for a lightweight, insulated jacket for walking dogs, hiking and wearing around town. I read that this jacket is even lighter and warmer than the Nano, but I feel like the Nano is better insulated. I wore this jacket for a few hours in wet, mid-30s temps and was quite cold d... Read Moreespite having 2 long sleeve layers underneath. I also did not care for the fit as much since the arms and body are quite a bit longer than my Nano Puff. This jacket will probably work well for someone who wants a lighter weight coat but was not warm enough for my needs. I am exchanging for a different jacket.
Warm and very thin
Much less puffiness than I was expecting. I know thats the point, but I was still so surprised! It keeps the heat in and a medium is great for layering or wearing alone. Ive been wearing it in the Tennessee mountain winter and just layering it over my better sweater if its on the colder side. If Im being active it definitely traps the heat.
Nice warmth to weight ratio, fit in shoulders is off
I just got this jacket in the trash bag black color and mostly like it... I'm almost 5'9" so I like the length, much better length than my older ultralight down hoody jacket.

If you don't have broad shoulders then you may not have this problem!
Proportions were off
I wanted to love this coat, I did, but the proportions were just OFF. The seam line at the shoulder is very non-traditional, and the shoulders bunched up (like shoulder pads). It was hard to see this in the photos online. In addition, the length of the coat was too long for a petite frame (5'2"), and rode up while I was wearing the coat. ...

That is why I gave it only 4 stars instead of 5.
Cute fit but not warm
I love the fit and look but Im cold in it. Its nice that it isnt bulky, but it is too lightweight. I have a Patagonia sweatshirt that seems to provide more warmth than this coat.

So, yes, it's delicate. Just be aware of that and aim to use it with a shell or be very careful. I would NOT use this climbing.
Super versatile & fabulous fit!
LOVE this jacket! It is super versatile, light, easily packable, very warm. I've had it for a few weeks, and so far have worn it in -25C (with a warm base layer) for winter runs and errands.

New Fit XXS Perfect Synthetic Puffy

We thank you for this insightful review on our Women's Micro Puff Hoody. We value your feedback and will consider it for future versions.

Perfect hood on a warm, lightweight go-to jacket
I wrote one review of the Micro Puff earlier, but I hadn't yet tested it snowshoeing, hiking and running in 30-degree weather.

Not only does the hood work brilliantly to allow full visibility and mobility while dialing up the warmth, bu... Read Moret as I work out it continues to hold in all my heat, even as I sweat. I do sometimes layer this with a couple long sleeve wool shirts, maybe a vest, in the snow to stay warm when I am stationary for longer periods, but I continue to be amazed at how warm I stay -- even as someone who is always cold -- despite the feather-weight of the jacket. As a running jacket in the snow, it has been a little trickier b/c it does hold in so much heat and sweat that I get hot, but because it's so light to tie around my waist I do this as security in case I get too far from home and get cold. And, given the versatility and packability, it will come with me on every backpacking trip from now on.
Snug around the bottom
I love this jacket except that the elastic trim that is around the sleeves and hood (a plus) is also around the bottom of the jacket (not a plus). I dont like the snug feeling as I ski and walk around my hips; is sometimes creeps up.
Thanks for the feedback on our Women's Micro Puff Hoody, we're sorry that the trim along the hem has been bothersome for you. If you're interested in sizing up, you can get started on an exchange [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).

Hello Juliane, we're truly sorry this didn't work out.

The cut /fit didnt work for me
I am very dedicated to the Patagonia brand and have many Patagonia jackets. I heard that this model has great warmth to weight ratio so bought a jacket on line. I was very disappointed with the cut/look of the jacket and decided to return it. I never got a chance to evaluate its warmth to weight ratio.
I was so excited to see this on sale, so I snapped it up immediately. I always wear a small and have tried the x-small but always found it too small. Sadly, that's not the case with this jacket.

punctures too easily and does not breath
It is light like advertised, but in normal use, it gets puncture holes in the sleeves. The insulation is coming out of the puncture holes. It also does not breathe. I usually don't have a problem getting sweaty but I do every time I wear this skiing. So I've demoted it to around town use and taken it out of my backcountry ski pack.
We are so sorry to hear about the punctures in that jacket. Similar to down products, our Micro Puff insulation can sometimes come through the stitching and stitch holes. To fix it yourself in instances where it is small fibers, you can break them off. If it is a larger white clump of insulation, we suggest you try to pull it back into the jacket by pinching it from behind and pulling the fabric forward. You can also cut the larger white clump with scissors, but be extremely careful not to cut the fabric or the stitch. Nonetheless, you if you find your are unsatisfied with that jacket because of this and the breathability, you are more than welcome to [send](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it back to us.

Great warm jacket! This can be worn on its own or layered inside other jackets to gain extra warmth. The only downside is that the sleeves and shoulder area run small. If you have narrow shoulders and very small arm muscles, you'll be fine, but everyone else might want to order a size up.
Great; but too lightweight and but not warm enough for my mountain living needs
As much as I liked this jacket, I ended up returning it because I'd misunderstood it's warmth factor. "Warmest for weight" turns out to be super lightweight and not as warm as I need. The Patagonia store sales woman who processed my return was very helpful and recommended a better choice for my mountain living needs.
Is is my go to jacket.
This is definitely a favorite. Light weight, packable, warm, but not too hot. Can use it alone or as a layer. On extra cold days I put it under a shell and have the hood up under my ski helmet and I am toasty warm all day. I grab it for those quick trips running errands or hiking, even use it as a sweater around the house.

This jacket was recommended to me by a friend due to Patagonia claiming it’s their lightest, warmest jacket. I am traveling frequently by air so I thought this would be much better than a thicker jacket to travel with and I was right! I received the jacket on a Thursday and I was taking it with me the next day to Toronto in December. I was very ple... Read Moreased with the jacket during the cold weather and snow. I went up in size from a large to an extra large to ensure I could wear a vest or sweater underneath in case I needed an extra layer. I didn’t have to worry about my torso and arms getting cold even after 6+ hours walking around in snow in Canada. The snow never soaked into my jacket and I was left dry all day. I went with feathered grey, which doesn’t look quite like the photo in my opinion, but I ended up liking it more in person because it was almost a shiny silver. I would recommend this jacket to all of my friends and family every time. I can’t wait to wear it again!
Please Please Please add XXL Women's to offerings in Women's Micro Puff® Hoody
My husband has a micropuff and it's wonderful. So light and so warm! I would really like to have one of your Micro Puffy Hoodies but I want it to wear loosely over many other layers. The XL fits fine but I want something oversize and am very hopeful that you will XXL to your line of hooded micro puffs in the near future. Thank you.....
Good but not as warm as I expected
I like it, but I need to wear a lot inside to stay warm. (Today was 47F with wind 13mph, I needed to wear t-shirt, fleece and soft shell under this Micro Puff Hoody...)

Oh! My gosh!! When it arrived I opened my pkg put it on immediately PERFECT! Love, love this wonderful jacket fits so great! The hot pink is beautiful, M fit, I’m 5’ & 130 lbs. So happy I ordered this hoodie jacket. You did it again Patagonia thank you! Can’t wait to wear it when our weather is cooler. I’m down South in Louisiana.
Lightweight and warm
This coat is great. It’s light weight with good pocket space, a hood, and does a great job of trapping heat and keeping you warm. Great for trips to the gym in the cold without having to get completely bundled up! I do wish it came with a bag that it could fold into for trips, but that is very minor and does not take from the quality of the coat.
Good jacket, weird sizing.
This is my second Patagonia jacket in two years. I liked the weight, warmth and fit of the first so much, I wanted a second with a hood for a trip to Europe.

Loving how warm this Lightweight jacket is!
After our sales rep showed us how quickly heat builds up putting your hands on either side of the material.. I decided to purchase one. Since then it has been my go to jacket for everyday and hiking. It's warm and not at all bulky. I bought a small, which in some brands is restrictive, and I can wear a sweater underneath and be comfortable!

Best Puffy Ever
Been wanting one of these for years now. Finally decided to go for it and honestly, been wearing it every single day since. I'm a Small to Medium depending on brands, went with a Medium on this jacket so I can put a few layers under and so happy for that. I also love the inside pockets, such a great use for small gear storage.
Great fit and super cute! It’s super lightweight and packs down small enough that I can throw it in my bag on chilly days to deploy as an outer layer if the temperatures drop. I also wear on super cold days and stay toasty warm. The hood is I credibly well designed and stays put no matter what I’m doing — even in strong wind (with no drawstrings!).... Read More Love how versatile this jacket is. Certainly feel like I’m getting my moneys worth. I am 5’7” and normally wear a small but took a medium in this so I could layer up underneath on extra cold days. The medium is roomy but not sloppy looking.

I do love my new micro puff hoody. It really does keep me warm, it is light as a feather and packs down to very little volume. I also think it’s quite stylish. I recommended wearing it on fair weather days as I got a little wet here in San Francisco. It would be great wearing it under a hard shell on wet days.
Prefer the Nano Puff!
This jacket is nice and warm, but I prefer the fit of the Nano Puff jacket much more. The Nano is more flattering and sleek at the bottom of the jacket.

I have been using this below another, thicker, down jacket for my morning bike rides to work for the last two weeks (24-30 degrees). It fits perfectly underneath and adds the boost of warmth that I needed. Since it is thin and light, it doesn't create bulk and it stays put so I don't get a cold lower back.
Not made for curves
This jacket is comfortable and warm (without bulk), but the shape would not work for everyone. I am 5' 9" and weigh 160 lbs, so I bought a large so I could wear layers under it.

Warm, comfortable, fragile
I found the fit of this jacket to be more comfortable than the down hoody. It fits smaller than the down hoody of the same tag size. It has kept me warm in 15°f weather for the two days I’ve had it. This jacket tares easily. I tripped and caught my self on the grass, now the jacket has a free hotel soap sized gash on the arm.
Fantastic quality and truly very, very warm. For my body type I am usually a solid medium in most brands, but I tend to need a larger size for Patagonia.

Read Moreh this jacket at this size. All zipped up its honestly tight across my bust (34F in ThirdLove sizing), but not so tight that it bothers me. I do think anything more than a thin long sleeve would be uncomfortable underneath because it would be too tight. I would also be comfortable in a large for sure but the sleeves would most likely be too long, which happens alot -size up to fit the curves and then the shoulders and sleeves are way too big. So while the medium is a bit tight on the girls, the sleeve length is absolutely perfect, hits right at my wrists. I wear this jacket to work, for skiing, for hiking, etc...I can wear it outside all weekend and it still looks great to turn around and wear it Monday morning to the office. I am very pleased with this purchase and highly recommend.
Super warm for the thinness! Which is awesome :-) The bottom of the jacket is a bit narrow for larger hips so go a size bigger if you want it to fit loosely in this area. The hood is a tight fit as well, this will be great when it is cold and windy, when trying it on in my house it was a bit intense.

Didn't Fit Well
I am smaller at the top and a little bigger in the waist. I didn't love this jacket because of the elastic band being too tight around the waist and not adjustable.

Have you recently changed the fit? I am a small person and it felt extremely tight in my chest area. I love this jacket for backcountry skiing but unfortunately had to return it because I couldn't move my arms around comfortably.
Hi Savannah! We're sorry to hear this was too tight. The unfamiliar pattern lines of the Micro Puff can sometimes fit or drape unlike other similarly fit products, which is why it fits tighter on some. We'd like to suggest our [Nano Puff Hoody](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-nano-puff-hoody/84227.html), which has a heavier/stiffer fabric, adjustable waist, and slightly wider shoulder and hip dimensions.
Lighter weight warms x2
The color, style and fit overall is good, although I would love a little more space in the hips. I fold it under to shorten in compensation. I think I had hoped that it would be warmer. I used it with an R1 layer under it in 32 weather and was *just* warm enough. I will continue to use it as a useful layer in Sacramento "winters."
Thanks for your feedback, Toby! We're sorry this jacket wasn't what you were hoping in terms of fit and warmth. As part of its minimalist design and unique material, we developed a unique pattern for this jacket, which is why it might drape unlike other similar fit jackets. If you'd like a warmer version of the Micro Puff, we'd recommend the [Macro Puff](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-macro-puff-hoody/80115.html), and if you'd like a warmer jacket but for less cost, we'd recommend the [Down Sweater](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-down-sweater-hoody/84711.html).

I wore it on a hike last weekend where temps fluctuated between 40-60 from dawn until early afternoon. I had no issues with upper body warmth whatsoever. Especially with the hood on, I was very comfortable during some of the coldest parts of the hike. The only thing is that it doesn't breathe...I guess that's the whole point of an insulated jacket. During slightly warmer parts of the climb, the jacket turned into a sauna and the interior of the jacket became (and remained) damp from my sweat.

The cut of this jacket followed a pattern I've encountered in trying on several Patagonia jackets this season: the cut seems to be for narrow-hipped women.

Great layer, strange fit
Great layer, very lightweight yet warm. The fit is a little strange and I find that I always lie between a small and a medium and there seems to be a large difference between the two, I think Patagonia changed their sizing metrics and I find that their clothes don't fit as well anymore. Regardless, good layer.
Perfect jacket minus fit.
Bought this jacket for overnight trail running adventures. 5 ft 8”, 130lbs with long arms. Had to go M to fit the arms but then it completely covers my bum and is a little puffy in chest.

Perfect balance and temp
I’m always a little pleasantly surprised that no matter what activity I’m doing this jacket is the perfect balance for temperature. I wear it daily. I also wear it hiking. And even when the hikes are a little chilly in the morning and warmer in the afternoon it’s such an easy jacket to pack that I don’t even have to layer.

Was hoping to replace my puffy I take backpacking with this lightweight one. It's truly lightweight but wears like a windbreaker, not substantial for protection from the cold.

Beautiful Jacket - Personal Flaws
I wanted to love this jacket so much. I found one colour on clearance and got so excited. It fit gorgeously, and I have troubles around my hips (I'm 5'4 but have a big hour glass shape). There are so many parts about this jacket that could work for certain people for sure, it's a very nice jacket, with the following pros: - Long slee... Read Moreves. I know some will find this annoying but I personally like it with insulated jackets as I find movement can cause your wrists to be exposed. - Elastic cuffs. I like them very much on the wrists, feels like it's super cozy and easy to move in. - Weight. SO LIGHT! And so packable. I mean this thing is so easy to fold up in a purse, scrunch up in a backpack, etc. A huge thing I love about it. - Slightly longer torso. This sits right around the middle of my butt, so it's only really half a pro. But better than being too short - Great overall fit. At least for me, it doesn't look like I'm swimming in it. I find that other insulated jackets go large at the top to give room to shoulders, but then go tight around the hips which I can't do. Then I end up going up a size for the hips and the top suddenly makes me look like Michelin Man. These are my personal riffs with it: - Warmth. I read it in a few reviews - I legit put the jacket up to the light, and I can see so many WIDE holes with the stitching. Obviously some holes come with the stitching, but these are so wide. I wore the jacket in my house when I initially bought it, just to see how quickly I would get warm/overheated. I was expecting, in a small apartment, with heat on, a t-shirt AND a long sleeve underneath, would get me a bit warmed up. This is when it is 15 C outside. Honestly it didn't feel like much a difference. This part worried me because I would be using the jacket for both moving about AND sitting somewhere - by a campfire, in a tent, etc. - Elastic at bottom. Also agree heavily with other reviewers, it's almost like there is no need for the elastic on this jacket. It is a mid-layer, most definitely not warm enough for very cold nights. Therefore, it will mostly likely be used under a shell, or in warmer conditions, so it doesn't help much with keeping wind away. Normally I wouldn't mind the elastic, to be honest I enjoy it on other jackets, but the length of this jacket, sits right near the middle of my butt, so the bottom just looks.....curious. Like I'm rocking half an odd muffin booty. If it inches up, then the jacket looks worse. I would heavily recommend, if you can, go try it on somewhere first! If it weren't for the price tag, and what I'm looking for, then I would probably keep the jacket, because it has many nice qualities. I think when it comes to these kind of specific jackets, it's obviously hard to nail it down for such a variety of body sizes. Im looking to possibly try the down hoody instead for more warmth.
Great addition to the layering quiver
Great compressible lightweight puffy. I load up layers of light insulation while moving at a variety of paces for versitility.

I am so happy with my purchase of this micro-puff hoody. The performance is so similar to down, very light and extremely warm for its weight.

Love Nano Puff
I love Nano Puff. I am waiting for WHITE with this style. I like how this jacket fits. It is so comfortable. I am 5’2”, 115. Small fits perfectly. I love that the body is slightly longer than other jackets but the arms are not loo long. I can wear it over or under any jackets if I want to layer it. Pleas make this jacket with white.
I absolutely love this jacket! It is incredibly versatile, great layering piece. On cold winter days (-30 degrees C) I wear this jacket underneath a jean jacket and am very warm!

This piece works great as a transitional piece after a cold ride or run, a great jacket for cross-country skiing, and an incredibly versatile everyday piece!
This jacket is great in terms of warmth-to-weight. My review mostly relates to fit. Why is Patagonia's "regular fit" so biased towards tall, lanky people?

It's almost impossible for me to find a Patagonia jacket that fits me, including this one: the size that fits me in the torso/waist is tiny in my arms and shoulders. I had to size up to a large in this jacket to get it to barely have enough room for my arms, but then the rest of the jacket is too big. The sleeves in particular are so long that they cover my hands. I'm sure this fit works for some people, but I wish Patagonia would offer a fit that works better for people who are short and dense like me!
This jacket keeps me warm in windy conditions with only a base layer into the high 30s. Hood is a bit snug with a knit cap, but functions appropriately.

No chest pocket, uncomfortable collar, rides up
I wanted to love this jacket but there are just so many things that dont't work about it. I was offered this has a replacement for a jacket that ripped on the seam and it was NOT comparable.

Also, the internal pockets are not useful as you have to unzip your jacket, take a glove off and then grab whatever you need. Collar - this collar is so high and uncomfortable. Most of my other Patagonia jackets have a fleece lining over the zipper so it doesn't scratch your chin when zipped all the way up. This jacket has a small piece of fabric covering the zipper garage which does nothing for comfort. Additionally, even when the jacket is not zipped up all the way, the collar stays standing straight up which scratches and irritates your face any time you move. Elastic waist - I found any time I did any sort of real movement in this jacket it would ride up and expose my stomach. I found this particularly frustrating while climbing some steep trails.
Tiny holes in the stitching = opposite of wind protection
I loved this in the store because of how incredibly light it is. I assumed it would be as warm, if not a step warmer, than my Nano Air, which would make it a perfect jacket for life in Southeast Alaska. Wow, was I wrong.

I went back inside to look more closely at the jacket and the stitching holes are large enough to let the wind in! You can hold the jacket up see light shine right through the holes! Unbelievable! I have Nano Puffs, with are also stitched, but they are far superior in blocking wind, maybe because they have an additional inner lining. I'm not going to keep the Micro to see what happens in a drizzle, but obviously water will come in those holes, making the DWR finish kind of pointless. It's almost like it was designed to be a mid layer, but not. Very confusing. On to the fit... The neck zip comes up to my chin, further than any other Patagonia jacket I own. It is extremely uncomfortable to zip all the way up, which is how I wear my jackets when I need that extra warmth. The hood is so small and tight it isn't practical to use. Finally, I’m not a fan of the the elastic at the waistband. I'm sure it was to cut weight, but I'd rather have the toggle that I can loosen or cinch myself. I am very glad I bought it from a retailer that accepts returns.
Phenomenally light, but very warm. Strangely, it feels lighter than a down equivalent, which is a plus for me. I got a size bigger than my regular size, so that I could wear layers underneath.

Just lose it. Btw I'm 5'3,100lbs,and ordered XXS. The width is on spot and there's plenty room for layer.
I've been living in this jacket
Got this to travel light,but now have worn it in temps between 20-50F. It's just the greatest jacket. If it's under 30F,wearing it with hat,gloves,and a scarf keeps all my heat in.

But the XS is roomy enough to comfortably wear over an R3. The hi-loft down sweater in XS always felt annoyingly tight and uncomfortable over any bulk fleece like the R3 or Re-Tool Snap T. So at least now I finally have the water-resistant,light weight layer to throw over sweaters or fleece. The hood is great but the one recommendation would be for Patagonia to add soft fleece cover over zipper since the zipper fits over the chin with the high neck length.

That being said, mine has definitely taken a slight beating at the crag, but I have a feeling I'll be taking advantage of Patagonia's repair policy sooner rather than later (if I can bear to part with it long enough to have it fixed).

I like that the bottom of the jacket is snug eno... Read Moreugh to keep out wind,but not so tight that it will creep up with wear - it stays in place. The sleeves are actually long enough for me and I can even tuck my hands inside if I forget my gloves. As other reviewers have stated,the hood is very fitted which isn't really my thing personally but it does keep the wind out and the warmth in with very little effort (since the hood doesn't have adjustable cinches - just zip it up and you're toasty). As advertised,this jacket is super lightweight but still very warm. So far I've worn it into the 30's F over a fleece underneath and I've stayed toasty and have not felt the blasting wind at all. I would have to agree that this is the only jacket I need for colder weather - when it gets really cold I plan to layer over my Nano Puff and that should be plenty warm. For reference,I'm 5'10",145-ish lbs,36-29-39,and I went with a size Medium which for me is perfect!
love the lightness,but not the sleeves
I bought this jacket a couple of weeks ago and just took it out for a long walk in 50 degree weather. Really great. And I know it will be versatile with layers. I plan to take it hiking next week. My one big objection is that the sleeves cover my hands. I can turn them up,but it's irritating. If Patagonia insists on making them long,why not ha...

Disappointed in Fit
I'm so disappointed with the sizing of this jacket. I sized up one size so it would fit over layers and the arms are snug with just a t-shirt underneath. Aside from the that,if you are a person with long,skinny arms,then this is the jacket for you. The sleeve length is well over 1 1/2 inches long on me. On a positive note,the sleeve edge does ...

I'm undecided at this point whether to return it for a refund or to exchange for the next size up,which may be way too large for me. The torso of the jacket is slightly smaller than the average large and the length extends down midway over my buttocks. If I were to label this jacket with a size,I would call it a "Women's Tall Medium".
Love the hood,fit,and fabric.
I have many jackets. But I like this one for several reasons. 1. The make-or-break deal for me for jackets these days is the hood. I don't like adjustable hoods,which rules out many. I also don't loose hoods. What I want is a snug hood that covers as much of my lower and upper face as possible. When the wind starts,I want a balaclava sty... Read Morele hood. The hood on this jacket works. 2. I like ultralight weight fabrics. I need something that I can carry around and pull out as needed. I have other ultralight jackets and have tried on others,but this one has a great fit. 3. This has a flattering fit. I like a fitted jacket and I find that if I wear Patagonia jackets in XS,they don't look bulky on me. In sum,it's the best ultralight jacket I have seen.
