Fabulous vest

Once again Patagonia did not disappoint. The vest is perfect for biking in Florida in the winter. Simply love it!

Great color, super warm and comfortable

February 2, 2023

Love the color

I just love this vest. I could have went with a small also, but wasn't sure what I wanted to wear with it so opted for the medium and it is a little roomy.

February 2, 2023

Perfect layer

Love my nano vest! Perfect layer when down is too warm or bulky. Love the 3 zip pockets for essentials! Stuffs into the pocket for easy packing.

Great fit warm but light

A great addition to my winter/fall/spring wear

Fits great and very warm

January 27, 2023

Nice vest but runs way too small

I love and own so much Patagonia gear, but the sizing frustrates me. I wear a medium in all other clothing brands but have to buy an extra large in Patagonia because they run so small.

January 26, 2023

Nice sleek vest, could use some small improvements

This is sleek and nice looking. I appreciate the easy maintenance synthetic. It does run small. I'm a large in Patagonia fleece and could barely zip up the large in this - size up! My main quibble (a minor one) is that the shoulders are cut too far in. I think it gives the shoulder a weirdly puffy look. If the shoulders could come out about 1&...

January 25, 2023

Very comfortable keeps me warm enough if Im wearing a long sleeved top

when buying Patagonia tops and jackets, fleeces etc I alway have to buy large. In all other brands I wear a small top and a medium jacket. The large in Patagonia wear is just a little to big but a medium just doesnt feel comfortable.

We appreciate your feedback, Patti! The Nano Puff Vest is a regular fit style, while other may be slim or relaxed which could affect which size feels best, depending on layers.

January 25, 2023

Great vest

Great fit with an extra layer of warmth

January 23, 2023

Love this vest

BUT, the large was too small. I must be between L and XL because I have other Patagonia jackets/vests in Large that fit perfectly. The vest is warm but not bulky - very comfortable!

Thanks for the review, Janet! If you decide you'd like to exchange for a size up, you can begin the process [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).

The Nanopuff without sleeves

I always have to size up in women's tops at Patagonia and I am a very average-sized 5'7" female. But their tops run small. I loved my nano puff jacket and thought I would go for the vest as a way to layer on cold ski days. It is great for that! It is so warm and also an easy way for me to look professional at work.

January 22, 2023

Great for a straight figure

This was a fab vest, but had to return as it is not made for a curvy figure. Too bad. I found another thats Polar fleece thats better, but they definitely cater to taller torsos and narrower hips.

Light weight and warm

I bought this to wear at home and for outside. When it's very cold out the vest is perfect around the house because it's lighter than a sweater or sweatshirt but keeps the chill away.

Stylish, warm, and light weight

I love this vest! I purchased it as I was looking for a warm vest for spring and winter in the Midwest. I like that it is tailored/slim fit to be flattering vs boxy.

An unusual cut

I have several jackets, vests and sweaters from Patagonia. This vest, however is cut unlike any other I own. It was too tight on the bottom, causing it to ride up and bunch at the chest/armpits, and the top half was cut too large/loose thus allowing the increased bunching. I was excited to add it to my wardrobe, however, I send it back due to the ... Read Morefit :(

Hey Lisa, thanks for the feedback on fit with our Nano Puff Vest. We're sorry to hear that it didn't work out. If you're curious about potential alternatives, the [Women's Down Sweater Vest](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-down-sweater-vest/84629.html?dwvar_84629_color=WLWT&cgid=root) might be a better fit for you.

Warmth with Arm Freedom

Great vest! Warm, but my arms are free. Fashionable and functional. Excellent choice!

January 17, 2023

Flattering fit, perfect warmth

This lightweight vest is perfect for when it is a bit too warm for my Nano Puff but too cool for no jacket at all. Zip pockets are conveniently located and deep enough to be useful. I love the blue color, too. 5 stars all the way.

January 16, 2023

Nano Vest

Love the vest. I bought it as a gift for a friend who would normally wear a large and while it fit, it didn't allow room for a long sleeve shirt or sweater underneath. Returned the large and got x-large. Very happy with purchase.

January 13, 2023

Had to return...too tight and no give in the belly.

I ordered the XL and XXL vests, and had to return both. Love Patagonia and everything they stand for, but wish some of the sizing had more "give" the XL was simply too tight on my Winnie-the-Poo shaped torso and then the XL was way too large. If the XL (which I have in other vests) just was a hair larger or there was a bit of stretch buil... Read Moret in to the sides, it would have been perfect. Having that 1-2" variability would likely help a lot of other people too. As it is, this cut is very straight and not great for stockier builds.

Awkward fit

I tragically lost my trusted nanopuff vest and ordered this one as a replacement. I was sorely disappointed in it. I ordered a size larger than usual as my small nano puff jackets have been feeling a little snug around my hips. With this vest being a little longer, I thought I should have allow myself a little extra room. For the record, I'm 5... Read More'6 and athletic. I wear a 27 or 28 inch waist pants and am generally a size 6 is most clothing brands. The fit was awful! The hips were still a little snug, and the chest was HUGE. Why would you do this Patagonia? Why are active women not even allowed to have a little bit of hips? And, why would my chest be two or three times the size of a small? Returning and looking elsewhere for a replacement vest (while still remaining hopeful my old one miraculously appears).

Hi John, thank you for submitting this review. We're sorry to hear this vest didn't have as much insulation as you were looking for!

I love the color. It keeps my core warm. The style allows me to dress it up for work and also dress it down for casual wear. I love the feel of the material, and it is so lightweight I forget I have it on. With that said, I hope I don't gain any weight as it fits snuggly around the waist, but I still highly recommend this vest.

Pretty Thin

Hi my husband and I both got these at Christmas and I find that they're both much thinner than I had thought. It almost seems like there's almost no filling inside. Maybe that's how they're supposed to be? Very lightweight? Other than that they're fine.

Worst purchase ever. Warm is the first word in the item description. Its not! I dont think there is any filling. Its like two ply polyester. That is it! Can only wear it under something which makes it not worth the money!

Response from Patagonia
January 5, 2023

Hey Denise, thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We're sorry to hear that this vest is not cutting it for your needs. The Nano Puff Vest does have 60-g of PrimaLoft Gold Insulation Eco 100% postconsumer recycled polyester with P.U.R.E. We recommend always checking out the "Specs & Features" tab on the product page to give you an idea of what to expect with a product. It sounds like you might be living and playing in cold conditions, where the Nano Puff would not suffice. We're happy to have a conversation to figure out how you were planning on using the vest to help you find a better fit for your needs. Perhaps the [Women's Bivy Hooded Vest](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-bivy-hooded-vest/27747.html?dwvar_27747_color=NESB&cgid=root) would be a better match. Feel free to reach out to us and we could carry on this conversation.

Lightweight, warm, easy care, great style and fit: another excellent Patagonia product. Got the Wavy Blue, love the color - much better in person than it looks online.

Warm and weightless

Enjoy the gray color, the warmth, and quality. I wish it was less boxy and more tailored for female figures.

December 22, 2022

Nano puff vest fit

I usually wear a Patagonia medium, but this medium felt a little too small on my shoulders and hips - better for someone with a narrower frame. The next size up was way too large. I sadly ended up returning it.

December 22, 2022

super comfortable

vest is soft and warm and easily layers under or over other layers. zip pockets are roomy. folds down small for packing. I had to size up because I have a deformed back. 5'1" 105 pounds would normally wear a small or small.

December 20, 2022

Unusual fit - cut dry small and with an odd shape

I love the concept of this best but found the fit to be very very tight and uncomfortable. I would not recommend this.

December 18, 2022

Super cute, but tight in hips

I love the colors (I purchased the beautiful wavy blue) and the overall feel of this vest--warm, but light. It fits me great in the shoulders, chest & waist, but I need another inch or two to make this comfortable around the hips. Wish I were a guy, or a woman with no hips--then I could wear this otherwise very cute vest. Sending it back.

December 18, 2022

Beautiful construction, surprisingly thin

I was hoping to replace my old puffy down vest, so was surprised by how thin this is. I don't usually buy XS, but did after following the sizing guide. It was too small in the hips, where I am usually too small, put perfect in the shoulders where I am usually too large. I had to return it, though it looks very beautiful.

Hi Samantha! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're sorry to hear about the disappointment with the amount of warmth the vest provides.

Great, classic Patagonia style

I've had one of these for a decade. Tried lots of others in an attempt to add to my wardrobe. Nothing was right, so I went back to the ideal vest and was thrilled to see it was still in the product line up! So many vests are the puffy style right now; not this one and I know it will last and look good for a long time.

This vest is light and so comfortable. I live in Michigan and basically wear it every day from November to March, both indoors and outdoors! If I'm going outside I just throw a coat over it!

November 9, 2022

Good extra layer for the core

I bought this to replace a cheap vest from a different brand. I like this one better than my old one because the Nano Puffness is not too puffy and it doesn't feel bulky. Good worn over a flannel. It's a little loose in the chest for me, but that means I can probably wear it over something thicker.

November 8, 2022

Light weight in comparison to warmth.

I like the hidden chest pocket the best. No other ladies vest I have found has one. Light weight and very warm. Layers well.

November 1, 2022

Warm - Fit is Off

The fit is a bit snug and long - A two-way zipper would help at the hips vs an interior chest pocket I will never use. The fit from a couple of years ago on jackets/coats/vests worked much better for me.

Hey Susan, thank you for the feedback. We'll share your thoughts on petite sizing with the product team. The Nano Puff Vest definitely works best in moderately cool temperatures. A good general rule of thumb is that down will be warmer than synthetic options, but it will not retain warmth when wet like synthetic insulation can. If you're interested in a down alternative, we recommend checking out the [Down Sweater Vest](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-down-sweater-vest/84629.html?dwvar_84629_color=DUBN).

Perfect for Fall

Fit, color and overall look are great. Will wait till we get thru thus hot summer before I get to wear it, but I know it will work well for our late October trip to CO to hike.

Awesome vest

Love these vests. May run a little small but I like it a little roomy so I go for the medium which is the perfect size for me. I like to wear a light sweater or shirt underneath.

Amazing fit, perfect athleisure wear

I love wearing this vest for morning walks and daily errands. Great for SF microclimates.

Good light/mid-weight vest, although...

There is exactly one thing I do not like about this vest: unlike the micro-puff vests, which had (note "had" -- they've been dc'd, apparently) there are NO interior pockets at all, not a small useless zippered one, not two large highly functional ones. There are just the two hand pockets. If you don't wan't an interior... Read More pocket for snacks and iPhones..., then this is a perfectly great jacket for you.

Versatile Vest

Wore this climbing early in the morning and then out to dinner. Comfortable, warm, and packs down well. As always Patagonia durable so it will last forever.

This is a great vest. Fits so well and good quality. I have it in other colors and the pink simply wasn't a good color on me. Waiting for more colors to come out. I love Patagonia products!

Very thin

I love the fit and colour of this vest but really disappointed in the warmth. I have worn my daughters and loved it so decided to splurge on myself but this one is not the same quality it is so thin, It feels like there is hardly any down in it. It is definitely not suitable for cold climates.

Hi Lynne! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear about the disappointment with the vest. The Nano Puff features synthetic insulation vs down, and it's not the warmest vest we offer. We typically recommend this vest as a layering piece or for Spring and Fall weather as it's not suited for terribly cold temperatures on its own. If you're interested in a warmer option that features down insulation, we'd suggest the [Women's Down Sweater Vest](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-down-sweater-vest/84628.html?dwvar_84628_color=CNY&cgid=root).

Great layer, odd fit.

I like this vest as a good light layer but I ordered the Large which usually fits me well however I had to exchange for a XL because the waist fit small on the L. Got the XL but the upper part around the arms now fits too large. I will still use it but it does not fit as I had expected.

Great product, just wish it came in curvy sizes

I love this vest so much (it's great for traveling since it's lightweight and compact), but wish the sizing were more inclusive. I'm petite with curves so I had to size up to an XL. Going up a size made it possible for me to zip the vest up, but now the vest is too long overall and gapes a bit at the shoulders. I'll still wear i... Read Moret but it's a bit awkward. Sigh.

We appreciate your feedback and we're sorry the fit isn't better for you. You might try our [Nano-Air Vest](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-nano-air-vest/84277.html) which is "slim" fit but has stretch in the fabric. In addition, you may find a different vest that is a better fit when our Fall 2022 product is released. If so, you can trade your Nano Puff to Worn Wear for some credit! Please reach out to our Customer Service team if you have any questions. We'll be happy to guide you.

Super Versatile

I love this vest! It works with casual attire and work attire. it is cozy and yet light weight and totally classy!

May 22, 2022


I needed something lightweight for windy 60ish days when a jacket is too much but a single layer too little. This is perfect.

The overall vest is too thin , looks cheap. It does not have enough insulations.

Thank you for submitting this review, Theresa. We're sorry this vest wasn't what you were looking for, but happy to see you've been able to return it.

A favorite

Im usually a small but this vest in S was slightly short so I waited a year til the size medium was available. Its nicer than other brands of white vests, more comfortable, more versatile. Hope the nano puff stays in production!

May 9, 2022

Amazing Vest!

The nano puff technology is like no other on the market - so a vest in this material is likewise, like no other. Vest has a nice feminine-cut fit and it is very easy to layer with. It's thinness belies its warmth and it breathes very well. I'd have one in every color if I could!

April 28, 2022

I wear this vest everywhere!

I love this nano.. I bought my first one around 8 years ago and it is beginning to look a bit old. So I decided to give myself a new one and keep the old one for the garden. The Nano is so much warmer than you would expect, but it is so light weight that you would not believe it could be so warm. Patagonia rocksQ!

April 24, 2022

Light Weight and Warm

Bought this for my wife! Its light weight and extremely warm. Very packable and easily cleaned!

April 19, 2022

My favorite vest!

I use this daily as an alternative to a sweater or jacket. I actually made the purchase because I have the nano puff longer coat an I use the vest under the coat for extra cold Virginia winter days. Its my favorite!

April 18, 2022

Beautiful but

I have this vest in black and love it but bought the white & returned it. Unfortunately, can see filling through white fabric. Maybe better in off-white something similar?

Amazing vest, but the current colors choices are boring!

I love my nano puff vest so much, and unfortunately I am in the market for a new one. I was hoping to replace my grapeseed green color, and I was disappointed to see the very boring neutral color options currently available.

Loved the style. Runs a little small. I exchanged it for the next size up. Easy to exchange.

Extra layer, nice high collar. Just enough to ward off chills.

April 5, 2022

It's very nice, but big.

This is a great vest. I have the jacket in XL and it is a little tight for layering, so I tried the XXL. I find the jump between the XL and the XXL (at over 3.5 inches both measured and per the charts) to be an awfully big shift. But I think it will work out and be comfy for me.

yellow white

I was so happy to buy this vest- I know its quality and needed a white vest. Sadly this is Birch White which apparently is a yellowish white. I wear a lot of long sleeve white t shirts in Fall Winter so to have a yellow-ish white against a true white makes the vest look dirty/old/dingy. So so so sad!!

Hello Leslie, thank you for your feedback on the Nano Puff Vest. As you mentioned, the Birch White is more of an off white rather than a true white. We're sorry for the disappointment.

I have the sweater fleece vest in L. This was too small. Returned.

March 29, 2022

Lightweight but WARM

I have this in black and white. The black Ive had for 6 years and wear it pretty much daily in the winter months. The white one gets less wear mostly due to not wanting to stain it. The vests are so lightweight, poly filled, and keep you so so so toasty! This is a winter must have. If you want to stay warm, you need this. I wash inside out, in cold...

super lightweight and comfortable

great fit and keeps me warm being so lightweight as some vest give you that heavy feeling. love the grey color.

March 20, 2022

Perfect vest

I am 52, 120# and pear-shaped. I got this vest in a medium because while the small did fit it was a bit snug over my bottom and I wanted it to be loose so I could layer a sweater underneath. I love the navy colorits very versatile. Its a great layering piece and I would definitely buy again.

March 13, 2022

Stylish and functional

I love this vest and wear it for casual wear as well as walking. It is light weight and warm. Perfect for TX weather. I am 52 & weigh 110. I bought an XS & it fits perfectly.

March 12, 2022

Great look, right amount of warmth

This is my second Nano puff vest. Great for warmth and perfect for travel.

March 11, 2022

Love this vest!

I thought there is no way this thin vest could keep me warm- but it does. I wore as a base layer to ski and a vest to keep me warm in my home office.

March 7, 2022

Great Vest

Patagonia's best lightweight vest - comfy and stylish!

March 6, 2022

Love this vest!

This vest serves as the perfect light weight jacket. It is very comfortable and stylish. I have it in several colors. I usually take an XS but had to buy an XXS for it to fit well.

March 4, 2022

Extra warmth under my coat

I wear this vest in addition to a thermal top and heavy coat outside in very cold weather. Then I can take off the heavier coat if needed, and still feel very warm and comfortable.

March 3, 2022

Light but weird sizing

The sizing is off on this vest. Usually wear M\L but because I knew I was going to layer I ordered a L. The waist is fine but the arms are so big and it bunches up on the top chest area. The M would be too snug at the waist and or tight if I zipped up which is why I kept the L.

March 3, 2022

Super comfy

Ever since I received the vest Ive worn it almost nonstop! Great for indoors in the winter - and I love that it doesnt contain down.

March 2, 2022

Love it

The vest fits and looks great!

February 26, 2022

Love it! Comfortable and love the look!

February 22, 2022

Perfect for early spring

Perfect for staying warm and having full range of arm movement. Great for layering.

February 20, 2022

Needed to size up

I purchased with the intent for casual wear, but the extra small ended up being too small. I did go according to the size chart, however, its better to size up as it feels as if it runs a bit small.

February 19, 2022

The perfect layer

This vest is my new normal. I wear it daily indoors and out open or zipped depending on temperature control needed. I love layers, but not on my underarms. Keeps my core comfortable whether on the trail or around town.

It is too long in the hip area.

I now have three of these vests

This is my third Nano Puff vest; I've had my first two for a few years but my dogs and cats have put some holes in them so I wanted a third intact one for wearing out and about. They're great-warm, lightweight, fit really well and look good. I love that there's such a great down alternative.

February 16, 2022

just the right amount of warmth

I have several of these vests in different colors because I get so much wear out of them. I usually take an XS but the XXS fits me perfect and snug to keep me warm. Very practical item...love them!

- super lightweight, minimal bulk, just right for layering! Flattering fit, not too snug or loose, lots of give- in an active job where I spend time in walk in freezers, or outdoors in mid atlantic winters. Added bonus, it's very resistant to tears from my dogs sharp claws when she's over-the-top excited to see me!

January 31, 2022

Great vest!

I wear this almost every day during the cold weather and because it's thin it makes a great layering piece. The size small fit perfectly except it was tight across the chest so I exchanged for a medium, which is a bit large everywhere else. I wish you could add a little extra room in the chest for those that are not built straight up and down.... Read More :)
