Great for people who tend to overheat easily
This was on my radar for a while and I must say, this was worth every penny. I originally bought this for backpacking and as a mid layer for alpine climbing, yet this hoodie is so comfortable that I wear it almost every day as well. Not only is this piece incredibly soft and cozy, it's still warm yet very breathable. My body runs pretty hot co... Read Morempared to the average person so I tend to overheat and sweat easily during any aerobic activities, however this hoodie prevents me from overheating unlike most hiking jackets I've used but it also still keeps me warm. It doesn't look overly technical so I can wear it casually whenever, but I can obviously still wear it when jogging hiking, or even in the snow. For me, this is the perfect hoodie.
my most flexible and dynamic layer
this is one of the most amazing layers i own -- you can use it as an underneath layer for warmth in the winter underneath a big puffy, you can wear it in the milder seasons as an outer layer with something underneath it, and you can wear it alone as one of the best combinations of breathable, warm, and weather resistant garments i've ever owne...

A running hood that you can actually use!
This is simply the best designed hood that I have ever used. I almost never use the hood on a hoodie while running. I have used this one about 5 times. It comes on and off easily.

Great kit for all walks of life
You'll buy this thinking it's just for your outdoor job and it'll creep into every part of your life.

The Everything Jacket
Firstly, Im about 59, 225, broad in shoulders, dad-bod tummy. If youre my height and thin or ripped, def go Large or Medium.

The insulation is apparently some sort of magic and I love it. The outer texture of the jacket is light & soft, but stays taut & doesnt make you look fluffy like a down or puff jacket. Ive never had a jacket this nice. I now own more Patagonia items than my GF should ever know about, and its all because of the quality of this jacket. Its also performed well for me in light rain storms. Get it. Youll love it.
Great Jacket. Keeps the wind out and keep you warm without overheating during running and cycling in cold weather. Fabric pills easily around areas that rub against my backpack. I'm broad in the shoulders/chest and often have issues with Patagonia slim sizing but the size M fit well

Surprisingly breathable and comfortable on skin
I was amazed by the breathability of this hoody. Temperature and moisture regulation is much better than similar fleece options. I was also impressed by how comfortable the lining is directly on skin. It is very comfortable with just a t-shirt underneath. I did not like the cuffs. There is no wrist closure, so the cuff extends partway up my hand. ... Read MoreWhile they work well with gloves or a base layer that has thumb loops, I prefer to have an elastic wrist closure that cinches down on my wrist. I found hem length is good for hiking, skiing, but a bit short for staying tucked under a harness, when climbing.

Mannnnnn, this jacket hits all the marks. I finally bit the bullet, spent the cash, and was not disappointed. Breathes really well. Little to no bulk. Soft to the touch. Heats up like a champ.

Super stretch, like you are not even wearing it.
I got this to snowboard on warmer days and casual cross country ski / hike on really cold days. It's the perfect layer for both. But the overall winner on this piece is the stretch.

Very soft, but very fragile
Bought the pre-2019 jacket with the double breast pocket version. It's the softest comphy-ist jacket I've ever owned.

What happened to the zipper storm flap?
A few years ago, I bought the original version of the Nano Air hoody and fell in love with it. It instantly became my favorite all around jacket due of its combination of excellent breathability, soft stretchy comfort, warmth, decent wind resistant, good looking, style, light weight, and the quality construction and attention to detail that I have ... Read Morecome to expect from Patagonia. It has been amazing so far. Last fall, while hiking in the Desolation Wilderness, I managed to tear a hole in the arm of my original jacket. While waiting for the warranty repair, I decided to buy a brand new Nano Air hoody. Unfortunately, I have found that quality has significantly deteriorated in the latest models. A couple days after receiving it, I wore my new NanoAir for the first time to go hiking at Crater Lake. Very quickly I realized that something was very different about this jacket. Whereas my old jacket was comfy, the zipper on the new jacket felt uncomfortable and cold on my neck. After close inspection, I realized that the new jacket was missing the standard "wicking interior storm flap and zipper garage at chin for next-to-skin comfort"! I consider an interior zipper storm flap to be a basic and essential feature for a high quality piece of technical mountain gear. My original Nano Air had a storm flap. My Nano Puff has a zipper flap, essentially every other Patagonia insulated jacket including the Micro Puff, the Macro Puff, Down Sweater, etc. also has one, as well as all of my other high end outdoor jackets. The lack of a zipper storm flap is one of the reasons I don't buy the $30 insulated jackets at the big box stores. Skimping on the storm flap was a HUGE mistake and is the Achilles heel of this jacket. Because of the missing storm flap, I find that a vertical line running behind the zipper down my neck and chest get cold either at 50F and below with only a light breeze, or below 40F even with no breeze. It feels exactly like a cheap-o kids sleeping bag where the lack of a zipper baffle lets cold air rush in and hot air escape. I find myself continually checking to see if the jacket is zipped, only to find that it already is fully zipped up. Although skimping on this essential feature has provided no noticeable improvement in breathability when exercising hard, it has completely killed the wind performance and warmth so that you lose heat in the worst places along your neck and chest. As a result of the missing zipper flap, I find that I don't trust this jacket to protect me on a serious alpine adventure the type for which it is purportedly designed. Though it is ok when you are climbing hard and the wind is not blowing on your chest, the uneven warmth is annoying. There are times when you want to be comfortable in this jacket without working up a sweat. Like when you stop on the way for a snack or at the top of a peak, or early in the morning or late in the evening around camp. Or even walking across campus or biking to my office. I don't understand the logic. If you ever need to cool down or let more heat out of a jacket with a storm flap, you could just unzip, rather than having the zipper leak heat all of the time. There is nothing you can really do to warm up your chest and neck. Ok, yes, I could wear a scarf. But this is not why I buy Patagonia. Or I could put a Gore-Tex shell over it when climbing in light wind. However, rain jackets don't breathe that well, defeating the purpose of the Nano Air. My old Nano Puff is windproof yes, but you can't really hike hard in it (unless you want to sweat like mad) and I am not going to carry two insulated jackets on backpacking trip. My new Nano Air is a gorgeous jacket with a major Achilles heel the missing storm flap. Because I can't rely on it to keep me uniformly warm, I am in a position where there is no place for it in my pack. As such, it is essentially a very expensive sweatshirt, great for hanging out in the house on a chilly evening but I really don't want to even wear it across campus as it just puts me in a bad mood thinking about the cold line down my neck and chest. Finally, one more thing, relatively minor in comparison, that I find strange is that people have complained about pilling in the original jacket. My original Nano Air has not pilled. The new one however, began to pill after the first few wears. After 3-4 months of very light use, it looks like an old jacket. Overall, I am very disappointed and dissatisfied with my new Nano Air Hoody. If I didn't think so highly of Patagonia, I question whether removing these essential features was cost saving measure or even a deliberate measure to compromise the wind and warmth performance of this jacket in order to protect other jackets in the product line. In fact, the latest 2020 Nano Air model has even less features. It no longer has the drawstring in the waist and thus would let even more cold air in. It is also missing the second chest pocket. Bottom line: My 2019 model Nano Air Hoody is essentially a very expensive piece of casual wear that mostly hangs in my closet. I hope that Patagonia adds the zipper storm flap and waist drawstring back in, otherwise I will not be buying anymore Nano Air jackets.

The sleeves/cuff on this are not stretchy.
Great jacket, but my biggest peeve about it (still deciding if it's a dealbreaker or not) is that the cuffs on these are not stretchy.

While this jacket I’m sure would make plenty of people happy and satisfied, it is far inferior to it’s predecessor that I absolutely loved and adored wearing and could depend on for any activity, in any climate, and I hope they update/reboot this design in the future. In the meantime, had to go with an arcteryx jacket, only because it was the closest thing I could find to the old nano air jacket.

And, it still gives the ability to keep adding layers on top as needed. The fire red is a stellar color. Can't recommend enough.

I'm VERY happy. I had a previous version of this jacket, but it got completely destroyed from wearing a backpack. I've worn this near daily for the past month, and no pilling or rips on the back anymore. Great job fixing that issue, Patagonia, and thank you for making such a wonderful jacket.

I'm really impressed with this current iteration of the nano-air. More durable, more weather resistent, but yet still super breathable. I've worn it in a variety of conditions, and only really needed to unzip and take off once during a particularly warm and strenuous scramble
This is a great jacket for rock climbing and hiking in! It kept me warm while I was belaying and taking a break and let enough heat out while I climbed and hiked. My only minor complaint is that granite is not very friendly to the material so I already have a small tear but it was easy to patch up!
Another one bites the dust
I loved last years version. The only problem with it, was that it pilled. I purchased this years model and was disappointed at the changes. The hood and hem no longer had a tight seal. Very key.

Read Morecooler temps; however, if the wind is whipping, I'd recommend a shell as well, it's not super windproof. This jacket thrives from 35º-50º F (in my opinion). I do have two complaints that keep this review at 4 stars. 1) the fit is awkward for me; I'm 5'9" 150lbs and I was caught between the small and the medium; the small was too tight in the chest, but the sleeves on the medium are suuuper long, it's like it's built for someone with a +6" ape index. I ended up getting the medium, because the small would've been to restrictive (both in movement and in layering underneath), but every time I wear the jacket I get annoyed at the sleeve length. 2) related to the fit, the elastic at the sleeve cuff is terrible, it has barely any elasticity, so if I try to pull the sleeves up when climbing to get them out of the way, they slide down immediately. Overall I've gotten a lot of use out of this jacket, but when I wear through this one I'll likely look towards a different brand with a better fit to fill this niche in my layers.
Great updates from the past Nano Air model
I have the old model of the nano air and I loved everything about it besides the fact that it was quite bulky when I wanted to pack it away into a backpack or duffel. With the new improvement of being able to stuff the jacket into the chest pocket was a major reason why I decided to purchase the new model and it does not disappoint. The addition of... Read More snag resistant cuffs is a nice plus as it gives the arms of the jacket a more sleek look. I usually wear a small in Patagonia clothing, but I found that I had to downsize to an extra small because the arms of the jacket were too long on the small. While the length of the jacket is a little shorter than I would like, it does not bother me because I have stopped growing. Overall, a great jacket and I would highly recommend buying it! *For reference I am 5'6 around 135 pounds*
They brought back the best
I had a previous version of the nano air hoody for more than four years. I wore it as my primary insulation layer for skiing (40-80 days a season), as insulation during fishing trips, as my warmest layer for above treeline backpacking and peakbagging, and as added insulation on cold nights in a sleeping bag. I have many other puffies, but they most... Read Morely got set aside in favor of this one. It's warm, light, durable and very comfortable. But last year, I lost my favorite nano air when it got left boulder side on the eastern sierra somewhere. And when I went to replace it, I learned Patagonia didn't make it anymore. But, now its back. So good to see Patagonia bring back this perfect hoody. And in new colors too.
