We recently discovered that certain styles of the Capilene® Cool Daily and the Tropic Comfort product lines do not meet the 50+ UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating we claimed for them. They still offer solid UV protection--It's just not as much as advertised. If you own one of these shirts, click below for more information.

Great with the first version, now improved.
I love buying from Patagonia, love that they truly stand behind their products, love that they are truly pro environment. Patagonia generously replaced my old micro puff (no hood) and my very old nano puff (no hood) jackets with a micro puff hoody. The zippers eventually malfunctioned on both old jackets. The plastic insertion pin at the bottom sto... Read Morep of the micro puffs plastic zipper degraded, so the zipper failed to keep the jacket closed. 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 wear it casually all the time too and it does a fine job at that during the fall and into winter with the correct layers underneath.

Could be warmer
Fantastic fit. Material is super light. We'll see how it holds up. I love the hood - adds a lot of extra warmth.

Thanks for the feedback. Your Micro Puff® Hoody is filled with 65 grams of PlumaFill synthetic insulation—a revolutionary featherlight down alternative.

Why did you stop making this fantastic jacket.
Gentlemen/Ladies: Why did you stop selling this fantastic hoody? I have had one for about 3 years and have worn it 6 months of the year here in Minnesota. If it is less than minus 10, I supplement it with a down vest. IT IS INCREDIBLY LIGHTWEIGHT AND EASILY STUFFS INTO ONE OF ITS POCKETS. It is pretty windproof; and rainproof. In a gullywasher, I t...

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. Patagonia, please explain the rationale behind this design, or perhaps that it was a mistake and will be corrected next year? It's otherwise a nice jacket, but falls quite short on this important feature. Thanks and regards.
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. For their price it should heavier duty.... Read More

Love this jkt for before and after activities, trail running, mountain biking and climbing.

Looking forward to using it bikepacking for that end of day warmth, as part of my sleep system with a super light bag and chilly early morning pack ups before warming up on the bike. So far it has stood up well to repeated stuffing into bags and pulling out to put on. I thought I’d snagged it the other day but not a mark. Surprised and relieved considering it’s lightweight material. Hopefully it will last a good long time as this is definitely a new favourite piece of kit that’s a pleasure to pull on.
Light and warm
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.
I have had this jacket for the last 3 winters. In NC it doesn't get too cold but I wear this almost every day.

This jacket is magic for winter rec. i wear it with a single baselayer in temp range from 35-15 for hiking and snow shoeing. It keeps me warm and the hood adds warmth when windy.

Unbelievably warm and light
The main feature of this jacket is seriously absurd warmth for the weight, and all with synthetic insulation. It's bonkers.

I thought it was kind of lo... Read Moreose in the stomach until I put my hands in the pockets and realized it was perfect. 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. This thing weighs next to nothing and packs incredibly small for synthetic; usually the first thing on the con list for synthetic, but not here! 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.

I would consider this, however, a first generation jacket, with a need to be more affordable to be a competitive, recommended purchase.... Read More There are a few small things: the neck is a little tight when fully zipped, and doesn't feel comfortable/natural when fully zipped unless the hood is also on. 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.
Great Lightweight But Warm Coat for Tall Man
I have two Nanopuffs, but was intrigued by description of Micropuff (and the great pre-season sale). The coat is terrific....it packs even lighter and smaller than the Nanopuffs, and might be a little warmer/cooler...we will know when it gets colder out here in southern Oregon. I'm 6'6" and the XL fits very nicely also.
Love this lightweight, sturdy, packable jacket
I have had this for about 2 years. I live on the frozen tundra of west central Minnesota and wear my Micropuff constantly all fall and winter.

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'm very careful around anything that could snag it.

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 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
Hey Aaron! Thanks for taking the time to send feedback about the sleeves on your Micro Puff Hoody. We're sorry to hear that the fit isn't working for you the way your Nano Puffs have. Please be aware that your satisfaction is always guaranteed and you're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it and get back in a jacket that works for you.
Light and warm but odd fitting
6'-2" 185 lbs. The sleeves and torso length on the size large were too short. The XL is spot on with length but added about 6" of flop and unnecessary volume to the torso. Really weird sizing I have no idea what body type the XL actually fits well, It needs need to be trimmed up or the lengths on the LG increased by 1.5"-2"... Read More.
I take this thing everywhere always
It seemed like total hype (a better puffy, whatever) but I'm really attached to this thing. I have no idea what kind of magic juice they squirt on it to make it so light, so tough, and always the right amount of warmth. It works soaking wet. It works in the kinda cold and the cold cold. It sheds wind forever until you finally, grudgingly go fo... Read Morer the shell. The graphite color is really a dark green and thank goodness hides my slovenly ways. The hood is as good as floppy hoods get. It can even be a pillow. Seriously great product.
Warm & Lightweight
I have used this jacket throughout Spring and Summer in Kentucky thus far. It is by far the lightest jacket I have ever worn. While there are certainly warmer jackets on the market, that is not the purpose of the micro puff. It is perfect for throwing in any travel bag just to ensure you have an extra layer of needed. Backpacking, family car campi... Read Moreng, or just short weekends away to visit family, it goes with me everywhere. In winter I plan to pair this coat with a waterproof shell or a fleece for extra warmth. I personally prefer layering for winter warmth rather than 1 large heavy coat, so for me, this jacket is perfect. It's warm, lightweight, and water resistant. Great coat for a person who lives life on the go
Wearing this hoody is comparable to what I call non-weather days - those days when you are just free to do without even noticing the weather. This jacket is so light it is like wearing air. Warm to hang out at night in the Colorado mountains during the spring, summer, fall, and great early in the a.m. whilst making breakfast. I have not worn backco... Read Moreuntry skiing, as I am usually moving too much and given the climate changing I do not see many below zero days anymore in SW Colorado. But I look forward to throwing this hoody on any time it is suitable, as it just lightly fits. Have worn during easier, colder hikes, but not on steep terrain or during warmer weather as would sweat too much. If larger muscled get the large - I do not like feeling any tightness around my shoulders.
Worth Upgrading from a Nano Puff
I love this jacket, I have a daily rotation from the Nano Puff and Micro Puff. Although the Micro is more shiny and puffy. I think its worth the upgrade. Its a little warmer in my opinion and the pockets are a bit higher which helps my size. Either way they both look great!
So good in so many ways, but the pockets...
This is a great jacket. Its extremely light, very warm, and very comfortable. It blocks the wind, and it handles very light rain easily. The fit is great, the look is great, and the overall function is great. The only thing that isn't great is the pocket placement. The two front pockets are positioned mid way up the jacket, starting around the... Read More bottom of my chest/rib cage and ending 5-6 inches above the bottom of the jacket. This is a very uncomfortable place to rest your hands and arms. This jacket would better if the pockets were positioned lower in a more comfortable and functional position.
Just the Bees Knees
Long had I held back from buying this jacket. It is pricey for sure. Then I caved and purchased it. Why have I waited so long? Its water resistant (so great in mist and a light drizzle), lighter than a feather, and keeps you at just the right temperature. Its packable. It looks sharp. It is just incredible. Ive purchased competitors versions, but... Read More now will only stick with Patagonia from here on out. Its now my go-to when traveling and backpacking.
The scientists at Patagonia have cracked the code, this thing is inexplicably warm for how thin and lightweight it is. I love this jacket, it is far warmer and much higher quality than another jacket I own from a brand that shall remain nameless. I would say this jacket has a pretty technical fit, I'm 6ft 160lbs and the medium fits pretty snug... Read More, just enough for a base and midlayer, but I don't think I could really fit a big sweater or hoodie underneath, so keep your end-use in mind when you buy.

Perhaps my favorite jacket ever
Since 2008 Ive been wearing my much loved down sweater hoody. This year, despite trying to be a minimalist, I decided to upgrade. While the down hoody was great, over the years it began to have small leaks of feathers, so if I wore a dark shirt or sweater underneath, it looked like it had lint in it. And the small leaked feathers were hard to remov... Read Moree. This new jacket is a little lighter, I love the slim fit, it sheds light rain and mist, looks great - Ive been wearing it every day since I got it, walking to work in all conditions, from about 28° (with hat and gloves) all the way up to the low 60s, in drizzle, wind and sunshine. Im 60, 200 lbs. I could wear the L, but it was a little snug in the shoulders, so I went with the XL, which is slightly loose in a comfortable way. Fantastic new favorite!!!
Amazin warmth to weigh ratio
The micro puff is by far the best lightweight insulation I've worn. Surprisingly warm and packable. I use it for backcountry skiing as a descent layer, climbing as a packable belay layer and causally around town. Pair this jacket with an r1 and you'll be toasty all day. I liked it so much I wear it almost every day and had to get a second... Read More in Mango.
My new favorite jacket
Replacing my nano puff jacket with with the micro puff. Have used the now one only few times.

Even more packable and light than the nano puff, I hope it as durable and water proof.
Light as a feather yet warm and water repellent!
Amazing Hoody and perfect to put into my 25L Black Hole Backpack...easily warm enough on its own with just a t shirt and put on a jumper and your ready for a very cold day. I travel a lot and walk a lot and its super breathable too...looks great and is the most comfortable jacket I've owned.....1st class product!
Great warmth for the weight for sure. I’m comparing the style and fit to the old super light down jacket (have two)... in comparison this is a less good cut. The sleeves are really baggy and the body shape not as snug ... it ends up looking nowhere near as stylish — the old super light was one of the sharpest garments Patagonia made - the contrasti...

I love the functionality, but more style and better fit please!
Sadly, Mixed Feelings
I have mixed feelings about the Micropuff. It is a beautiful piece and I really wanted to love it because I need something light and packable, halfway rainproof and warm when the temp drops. Thought this jacket would be it. Sadly, it seems a bit on the thin side. It sure looked a little loftier on the Patagonia site. And making matters worse I can ... Read Moresee lots of pinholes at every sewn corner where it was pieced together. I can even see through the stitching in many areas where the wind will surely come calling. I suppose that would be okay if the jacket had a light inner layer to ward off the air flow through those holes. I'm not a clothes designer, so maybe they're there for a reason. But it seems to me that if I can see through the stitching the jacket's not going to perform or hold up very well over time. A few other irksome details for me: the outer zip pockets are set a little too high for a jacket that for my size is a about three to four inches too long. Sending it back.
