Ripped open on first use
The very first time I wore it, I threw a light backpack on to go to the park and the strap ripped a gash open on the chest. It also has no zipper chest pocket for a phone, the side pockets are oddly set, and the yoke is weirdly stiff, inhibiting movement. Spend a few extra bucks for the indestructible nano.
Hi Marshall, we're so bummed to hear about your experience with the Patagonia Men's Micro Puff® Hoody. This definitely sounds like a warranty issue, so please feel free to begin a return or exchange here: https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html.
I own three of them. The first one has about 500 full days of use skiing and mountaineering and its showing its age, but it still is warm. I often wear two of them under my Gore-Tex shell when skiing in quite cold weather. Very comfortable and its possible to easily control for big temperature fluctuations.

Hey Bernard, thanks for the review on the Micro Puff Hoody. We're sorry to hear that the color options were a disappointment, we'll pass this feedback along to the rest of the team. We did want to point out that this jacket does come in "Fire" and "Superior Blue with Ink Black" as well, if the Forge Grey is not your thing.

Lightweight, tailored fit
Lightweight and warm with subpar features. Was looking for a lightweight, insulated jacket to replace an old ultralight down jacket - while the weight and warmth was there, this jacket felt like a cheaper knockoff of the ultralight.

I ended up returning the jacket for a nano puff, a few improvements and Id have chosen this one.
So i've always wanted one of these, and finally bought one for my birthday. I wanted a winter coat for the crazy Chicago winters. So far this jacket has been wonderful. I've worn it multiple times and i have yet to be cold. It's very warm, fits true to size and it's very comfortable. I highly recommend this!
Awesome by itself and awesome in layering.
In combo with rain parka, the Micro Puff Hoody has incredible range in temperature, wind, and rain. Everyday, the Micro Puff hoody is my go to under my ski school jacket or rain parka. It works well in the moisture laden days, too. Keeps my neck and head comfy.
I used this Jacket while working in Monterey for a week, there was a variety of weather conditions from cold wind off the ocean to rainy mornings and it preformed admirably.

Kept me warm
I havent had the jacket long enough to get a good idea of its versatility but so far its kept me warm in colder, damp and rainy weather with a rain shell over top. I could feel the shell pulling some heat from my back but its done the best job of all the layers Ive tried in the past. Super light and comfy but my only complaint is the awkward fit. I... Read More typically fit medium Jackets without issue and after reading reviews it sounded like it may fit a bit loose, which I was ok with. But it has an awkward fit around the shoulders and biceps while the sleeve length and wrist cuffs are perfect. The small would have been too small and medium is too big (though fits good with bulky layers under). But the shoulders almost seem inflated and dont fill up. Im a wider, lanky human so this is something Im used to navigating but I may not have bought it had I been able to try it on in a store (I bought it online). Still, everyone I know who has it loves it, its warm despite the excess room, and super lightweight so I wont complain. Im 59 and 140 lbs so if your body type is similar you may want to try it on at a store. It also dried quickly after getting caught in the rain camping. Definitely a plus.

The fabric around the nano puffss metal zipper frayed a great deal; the zippers teeth frequently caught bits of fabric, and got stuck. The new micro puff hoody has a metal insertion pin; the zipper works well. Unlike both old zippers, the new micro puff zipper does not become stuck in the jackets fabric. The hoodys fabric has an improved feel, compared with the old micro puff. The old nano puffs fabric had the best feel of all, but may be too heavy for a super light weight micro puff. I wore the old micro puff frequently as a mid-layer and outer layer, depending. It was great as a mid-layer on bicycle rides down to the low 30s F. I expect the new micro puff to function similarly. I slept comfortably in the new micro puff hoody during a week long Summer camping trip to Lubec, Maine the eastern most town in the U.S.A. The temperature dropped into the low 50s F. The Medium fits true to Patagonia size which tends to run a bit larger than some other brands sizing. Its comfortable and cozy. I like the feel and fit, and the way it looks. I like the 4 pockets. I expect to wear it often. I like the way it packs into its own pocket. At 9.3 ounces, its 3.5 ounces lighter than the similar nano puff great for minimalist packing. I look forward to taking it along, when I resume international travel. Ive only had this jacket for a short time, and hope to remember a follow up review in a few years. Pros: great jacket from a great company, well designed, great fit and finish. Wish List: I wish the Patagonia logo was easier to remove. I put a small hole in the jacket when removing the logo with a seam ripper.
For walking four-leggeds in San Francisco I always need an outerwear piece that is wind-proof and water-resistant. I have broad shoulders and have always needed a medium sized outer layer but this item is a little too big for me in the arms and chest. Cannot complain about the weight as it feels like Im not wearing a windproof jacket.
Very warm but large
The jacket is stupid warm and light weight but its friggin huge... I dont wear small anything so I got a medium of this and it fits like a large
Thanks for your feedback on the warmth, weight, fit and sizing. We're sorry to hear it's running a bit big. If you haven't returned or exchanged the medium jacket, please reach out to us. We'll be happy to [help](https://help.patagonia.com/s/)!
I have it in my fishing kit and its very packable and lightweight to bring along for all my days on the water. I keep it in a large Black Hole Cube along with a Cap Air Hoody and a pair of Nano Puff Pants for any unexpected cold weather, it also doubles as a comfy pillow on overnight camping trips.
lightweight is an understatement
6'1", 175. Lightweight doesn't cover it. The jacket is an easily packable piece that goes with me all over the place. Fairly windproof and perfect for a lot of situations but not all.

I have had many different Patagonia jackets over the last 30 years. Patagonia quality. They're all still in good shape. But this is by far my favorite. Though your clothing is exceedingly durable, I worried I would wear this one out. So I managed to find one more of them. Unfortunately I did this after all the sales were over and the color selection diminished. But I figure these two Micropuff Hoodies will last as long as this 79 yr old body does. Consider strengthening the zipper. PLEASE BRING THIS HOODY BACK.
Second time for the same model
I bought the same model but this time with a hoodie. I still use the old jacket a lot but wanted an additional one for colder weather. Great fit, usuable around the year (Sweden is always freezing), and works just as well with a t-shirt (weekends) as a shirt (work).
Zipper falls short
This is a nice jacket. True to the claim, it is very warm for it's weight. Unfortunately, the zipper has no covering or sheath up at the collar. So, when the jacket is zippered all the way up, you are left with the metal and plastic of the zipper directly on your skin (chin, lips). This appears to be a failure or oversight in design, since mos... Read Moret every other light-, middle- and heavy-weight jacket I own have something soft covering the zipper at the collar.

Hello Jeff, thanks so much for sharing your feedback with us. This hoody comes with a zipper garage at the chin so the zipper should not be touching your skin. If your hoody doesn't have this, please feel free to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it under warranty.
Was a huge fan of the ultralight jacket; but once I tried this jacket, found it was a step above even that jacket. Lighter, more flexible, better fitting, more compact, warmer. I absolutely love this company and their products; not a fan of their politics, but they seriously make EXCELLENT products.
Very lightweight and warm!
Got this jacket for hiking the Grand Canyon and Zion in March, when the weather is chilly in the mornings and warm in the afternoon. It was perfect warmth for the 30degree mornings and super light weight when stuffed and clipped onto my pack. Im 61 and 195lbs with long arms, jacket fits somewhat tight to body with room for layering and movement.
Really good jacket with more specific uses than others
This jacket has impressed me more than I thought it would. I tend to run hot and found this jacket to be perfect for colder environments when working out. I've warn it as an outer layer on cold Nordic skiing days and it hasn't let me down. The tight fitting hood is also a nice addition. The only down side to this jacket is its thin outer ... Read Moreshell. I've worn out the material just by the movement of my hip-pack's strap skate skiing. Luckily the people at my local Patagonia store were more then willing to patch it up for me. The bottom line: This jacket is really special. If you want a warm (I've found its warm when working out to about 10ish degrees with just a t-shirt underneath), easy to layer, and super light weight jacket this is for you. Keep in mind that the outer fabric is not the most durable and is a trade off you'll have to make. Luckily Patagonia will stand by their products so you're in good hands either way. Wearing the micro-puff with a hard or soft shell that's more durable could be a killer combo as well. I haven't taken mine alpine skiing yet but I imagine it would preform very well as a mid layer. If you want a more hardy jacket I've heard that the Nano-puff (also by Patagonia) is a more durable standalone piece.
Patagonia nailed the sizing on this jacket for me. I'm tall and have a long torso, the longer fit of this jacket is great but it's not overly boxy and wide on my chest. Purchased this for a lightweight option to carry biking, hiking, and skiing in case of emergency. Enjoy the minimalist features and snug hood for under helmet usability.
Great warm gear
This replace a previous feather down jacket by Patagonia. Its a little warmer and better insulated are the pros. Its a little bulkier than the down version but it does stuff into its own pocket unlike the other one. My only real gripe although they do stand behind their products is the puny zippers they use.

I bought this jacket in November 2020 for hiking in the winter. I was worried about how thin the shell was but after 3 months of almost daily wear, I see no evidence of damage to the shell.

Read Moreing in temperatures from 30-50 degrees F while hiking but if I stop for prolonged times, I tend to start get cold. The jacket is cozy, it fits well, is very light and surprisingly warm. The biggest downside to this jacket is it does not breathe well, if I am hiking hard or in snow, it turns into a sauna. This lack of breathability probably helps increase the warmth and blocks the wind. All in all it is a great jacket and after reading Colin Haleys article, I bought a second jacket in small size. I now wear the small size while hiking (its much more form fitting than the medium) and when I stop, I put the medium size overtop the small one and I can sit in the snow for an hour lunch and not get cold.
Still in Awe
Im still in awe of this piece. I read a review saying it was warm in Minnesota winters, and I was highly skeptical. But Ive been super impressed with how warm it is on cold Arizona mornings (at or near freezing). I really cant imagine needing much more in an insulating layer unless I was in truly abominable conditions.
The Patagonia Warranty is the best there is.

Hood fits close to the head as it should, I don't need this thing to go over a helmet and it eliminates the annoying cinch that is uncomfortable when sleeping in a jacket. Cuffs and hem fit close to hold in warmth without being uncomfortable. I sometimes miss having a chest pocket but I think it's the right decision to leave it out of such a light jacket. My only real complaint is same as the Macro puff: the internal shove pockets route outside of the handwarmer pockets, which I find annoying because it's hard to use both pockets at the same time. I've mostly been skiing with this jacket so far and it's great as my only insulation under a shell for WA. It pairs well with the Macro puff for ski touring and fits nicely under the Macro when you really need to be warm. I'm also looking forward to using this on trail runs, mtn bike rides, and climbs. It's lighter than any other jacket I own and still warmer than many of them, so it's a perfect fail-safe on lightweight summer outings.
Impressed with the Micropuffs functionality!
Really impressed with the Micro Puff Hoody. Its quite functional, and that's coming from a guy who generally prefers down whenever possible.

You'd truly expect it to not create much warmth for ho... Read Morew thin and light it is, and while it's not for the frigid days, it's wonderfully warm for its (superlight) weight and (lack of) bulk for rather cool temps. So the warmth function is there. The Pertex Quantum shell with DWR has shed some drizzle & light rain and is indeed quite windproof. Just know it is not the most durable of shells, so I wouldn't wear it bushwacking or anything, but keep in mind this isn't designed to be a heavy duty use piece; it's ultralight so can't really complain. Just wear a layer over it if it's going to be seeing any abrasion, or wear a different/more appropriate piece for the job. Along with the ultralight concept, there are no drawcords which are usually important to me but the elastic hems and cuffs get the job done nicely for the purposes of this piece. And to tie it all together, the fit is really nice (well done, Patagonia!). The only thing I'd change would be the addition of a chest pocket - I love chest pockets and use them all the time, and I've gone to reach for it out of habit to stow small things and it's not there, so I'd love to see that added, even if maybe only on the hooded version. It could also be a touch longer but I wouldn't call it too short as is by any means. Ultralight pieces can come with serious compromises, but this one is really well thought out and executed. Highly recommended!
This jacket is amazing. It is super warm and does a great job cutting down on the wind. Love the internal storage to put stuff I want to keep warm like camera batteries.

Great First-Generation Accomplishment
The sustainability, materials, and skill in making this jacket are certainly an achievement.

The hood itself is also a bit snug - probably useful to wear under helmets, but not quite comfortable when wearing the jacket between activities. The overall fit, while comfortable, sags a bit, similar to older DAS parkas. And the pocket zippers seem delicate, and are prone to catch on the fabric. Overall, a great first jacket that has a bright future, but not sure if ready for mass adoption.

Haven't worn this out in the elements yet, but initial opinion is good. I am 6'2" and weigh 265 and the fit is perfect! I have 35" length sleeve length and the sleeve length of this coat is perfect for me! I was looking for a lightweight, packable coat to take on an Alaska cruise and be prepared for weather differences and this ... Read Morecoat fits the bill well. Love that the attached hood is roomy but secure but can be easily folded in the coat without bulkiness if wanted. Deep double zip up outside pockets and VERY deep double inside pockets will serve me well. Kudos for a fine design, fit and finish!
Super Warm & Lightweight
This jacket is so warm and so lightweight. I love the fit of the hood. It wraps my head nicely and keeps the wind out. The jacket fits well in the torso and arms. I think the jacket length is a tad long. I'm 5'10" and I'm sure it fits taller people better. The benefit of the extra length is that my core stays warm even when I ra... Read Moreise my arms.
Great jacket with a hood
This jacket is amazing. I like the fit and the warm to weight ratio. The hood helps prevent the collar from poking me in the chin or neck, when not fully zipped. The hood is compressible enough to be worn under my ski helmet, but is not practical for me to do so because I end up over-heating (but it can be done). The micro puff series of coats gain... Read Moreed two stash pockets inside and behind the external zippered pockets. My humble suggestion would be to include a zippered internal chest pocket similar to my nano puff jacket. I have recommended this jacket to friends and family.
Light and packable yet very warm
I hiked my first 14er with my fall jacket which is half the size of my winter jacket but 4 times the weight of this and strapping it to the back of my pack through me off balance while climbing. So, I got this and it hardly weighs anything yet after wearing it for a bit I always have to open it from getting too hot.
Light weight warmth
Bought this to replace a thrashed nano puff. Compared to the nano, this jacket feels warmer and somehow more minimal making it easy to wear around town or under another jacket. I think it would be hard to find a jacket as minimal with as much warmth. It has just the right amount of warmth for most cold and gray Seattle winter days. The medium fits ... Read Moreme perfectly as a casual around town piece (I am 6'-1" and pretty slim at 167lb), but if I were going to use this as a technical layering piece, I would have got the size up for a little extra sleeve and body length. As a general comment, I will say I have had a tough time with the durability of the outer material of jackets like these, and this is my only concern. I'm very careful around anything that could snag it.
Everything about this jacket is perfect and exactly as expected. Its super light and warmer than any jacket Ive ever had before! Im a traveling nomad and the lighter and more compact my gear is the better. And in the wind, wow, I cant feel it through this jacket at all. I found myself in a high wind advisory in southern Utah, and this thing made it... Read More feel like nothing was going on at all. The only thing that I could see that could be improved would be to make the ability to stuff the jacket into one of its pockets a bit easier and more intuitive, but compared to what this jacket delivers, this is like a non-issue. Super warm super comfortable, made of recycled materials and fair trade certified! I dont know how you can do better, but Im confident that when it comes time for me to get another pice of clothing that Patagonia will show me how. I expect that from Patagonia and so far they have always delivered. This is an amazing jacket and I have recommended it and this brand to anyone looking for new gear.
Great Hoody, Warm
I had a credit that needed to be used. I bought this Micro Puff Hoody. This is a great hoody. It's extremely light but very warm. The size was perfect. Also, the zippers are compact but very robust. I would buy this again and I absolutely recommend it for anyone looking for something like this hoody. Good job Patagonia!
Best ultralight jacket I have found!
I love this jacket so much for ultralight backpacking that I got a 2nd one a size larger to bring with me on colder weather backpacks. I would really like it if Patagonia would make an ultralight (approx 1lb 3oz in small size) 20 degree sleeping bag using plumafill. A few companies sell this weight bag with 900 down fill but with Plumafill I wouldn... Read More't have to worry about it getting wet.
Was considering a number of competitors but bought this as I prefer synthetic for the quick drying properties. Most reviews were pretty good too. Only downside is the size - I am 6" but the XL recommended was just a little too big especially around the stomach area. Very warm though.
Great jacket for all occasions.
I bought this jacket to replace a similar synthetic jacket I bought about 4 years ago from another company that has since worn through. I’ve found synthetic downs to be a really great addition to your wardrobe; they hold up relatively well in wet weather, they keep you warm, can easily be added and removed, and pack small. They also double up well ... Read Moreas a pillow if you stuff them into their own pocket which has come in handy on a few long flights in the past! I chose this one as I had been told in the shop it has multiple torn pieces of the insulation fabric inside the jacket (creating a similar effect to the way feathers do when they’re packed into a down jacket) where as the other synthetic type has a single layer of the insulation running throughout. I’ve not seen inside the jacket to confirm but what I will say is this is a lot warmer than my previous one. The black isn’t too shiny yet isn’t matte, but does go with everything. I’ve worn this with formal attire to the office and with my shorts and vans at the weekend. The fabric has held up really well so far and there’s no tears or anything despite chasing the dog through overgrown brambles! It’s a smooth finish on the outside so you can slide another layer over the top quite easily should you require it. The hood doesn’t get in the way if you throw another jacket over either, something I was a little worried about. Instead it kinda wraps itself around the back of your neck which keeps you warm. Then again you can put it up but I rarely do to be honest. The only thing I would alter is the size; I like my warm layers to be quite snug to the body therefore maximising the warmth but I’ve found in doing so it’s a little tight on the shoulders which I haven’t experienced in other Patagonia gear of the same size. I’m an athletic build with a flat tummy and broad upper, but by no means ripped, yet it can feel a little tight across the rear of the shoulders in some movements. I do only ever wear a t-shirt under this though so if you’re thinking about layering up with this as an outer I’d edge on the side of caution and get the larger size. Overall I think if you’re looking for a jacket to take travelling, to keep in your bag just in case, to wear whenever and whatever the occasion, then this is it. It’s more expensive than rival brands but for me it’s a staple of my wardrobe and because I can get it repaired at Patagonia any time in the future, it’ll pay for itself. Also supporting 1% for the planet.
Instant warmth, instant comfort
I love everything about this jacket, literally everything. The only things that you should keep in mind before purchasing are 1) the finish on the material makes it kind of like wearing a trash bag hahaha. It doesn't bother me at all, because honestly it's soft and water repellant and more like my $200 sleeping bag - but some people might... Read More see it differently. 2) I'm about 6' tall and 225lbs and the large was perfectly fitted to my arms and torso, this is probably what most people want, especially for layering or being active outdoors -but I could have used maybe 1or2 more inches vertically down from my waist. I've got love handles haha and this jacket risks exposing them if I'm really stretching vertically during climbing or hanging. It can be a drag to feel like you have to pull your jacket down all the time. Other than that I'm super stoked on this thing and I feel like it's very expensive but for good reason, it's one of the only jackets you'll ever need - if you take care of it. I plan to use this as a mid layer and packed single layer on days with big temp swings, but I'm not really sure how it will hold up to vines with thorns, abrasion from sliding across rocks or getting snagged on rough wood surfaces like docks tree trunks and the like. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it's easily repairable.
Not my thing
This jacket makes your arms become a T-rex. I love nanos I have probably owned six jackets at this point. But I would not purchase this micro puff or well maybe if you changed the arms and elbows
