Great Tool For The Kit
These are my personal preferences, as everyone is different. I've used the jacket skiing and casual wear in temps ranging from -3 to 25 degrees Fahrenheit. I'll start with what I didn't like about the jacket. I prefer a zippered chest pocket, which I find useful when on the mountain or in town. The neck portion is snug and slightly u... Read Morencomfortable when fully zipped and not using the hood. It is still a bit snug while using the hood too. If you're a person who runs super hot, this could still work for you, but be prepared to sweat and find what works for you. Layer lightly, for sure but also don't freeze. Now on to the goods! I highly recommend this one if you're looking for a great alternative to a down jacket. It's super light and warm, dries fast, and layers well. It compacts down reasonably small more than most synthetic pieces. With a few minor adjustments in the neck fit, this is hands down still a bomber piece to have!
I've had this jacket for a few weeks now and it has become my go-to piece for both around town and as a belay jacket for cold days where a heavier jacket (like the Fitz Roy) isn't needed. I was debating between the M and L, but went with the M for around town use. I can layer one other jacket underneath this one but that's about it, ... Read Moreso size up if you're looking at it solely for technical use. Overall a great, warm jacket that I highly recommend.
Very light and very warm!
This is as warm as my old Patagonia jacket, but half the weight, which is awesome. The one thing I would change is that the jacket is high quality (or appears as such), but has a very inexpensive cheap feeling zipper. That's what the consumer touches every time he/she dons the jacket - that needs to be where you accentuate the quality! Just my... Read More opinion. Overall, satisfied. :)

Needs 2 more things for the perfect climbing outer
Give this an adjustable over the helmet hood and a 2 way main zipper and it's perfect as a 3 season outter most layer when climbing and alpine climbing.

Zip fell apart. Patagonia's warranty is now useless.
this is a great jacket, except that my zipper failed. it came unstitched. i tried to return it under the "ironclad" warranty. i've been a patagonia customer since about 1982 and have had to return some stuff along the way. patagonia has always been incredible about that...until now. now, they offered to fix it, but fixing the zipper ...

This is my 4th Micro Puff Hoody and still my favorite jacket. I've owned 3 of the previous version and this review is for the current version. The construction is a huge improvement from the original version. Not a single strand of Pluma Fill was sticking out of the seams. The exterior has a satin like finish. Much better than the shinier vers... Read Moreion. Pluma Oil is nice and compact. Doesn't puff up like the previous "Michelin Man" version. It's as warm as ever and I really like the feel against bare skin when wearing a t-shirt. Props on adding the bottom drawstring. Allows me to trap heat in my core. Previous version was too loose in the lower part and heat escaped. Inner pockets are great for gloves or anything else you want to protect. Two big issues: (1) As others have stated the neck area is too tight. In my case (17" neck) I can barely zip up the jacket past my neck unless I pull up the zipper super hard to get it past my chin. Even then it's so tight it pushes my lower jaw back uncomfortably so this function is useless for me. This is a weird sizing problem that needs to be fixed in production. (2) The main zipper is still sticky. You need to be sure the zipper is straight before trying to either zip it up or down. Any kink in the zipper will meet resistance, not to mention frustration. This was also a major problem in the original version of this jacket which caused the zipper track to separate from the jacket which had me returning 2 of them for replacements. This is why I'm rating the jacket 4 stars although the overall fit is perfect for me. Overall it's a great product and still remains my favorite. Try the jacket on first to verify fit and that the neck closure works for you. Mine were all purchased online as they weren't available in the stores.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review Ed! We truly appreciate your feedback and we will make sure to pass them along to our Product Design Team so they may look into fixing these issues in future seasons.
Fit is ok, but ultimately I need a large tall rather than an XL. Warmth - to me, not enough, about the same as nano puff. Since insulation is only ~20% of the weight, Id prefer something say 20% heavier, but twice as warm, and well differentiated from nano, which is cheaper.
Response from PatagoniaMarch 2, 2023
We're sorry to hear that the fit isn't ideal with this jacket. We recommend returning it to your local Patagonia-owned retail store or you can also use our [online return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) path. Our Micro Puff uses a synthetic insulation that most closely mirrors the qualities of down insulation, so it's a bit warmer and more compressible than our Nano Puff. We hope this helps, but don't hesitate to reach out to our Customer Service team if you have any additional questions. We're happy to help!
Super warm and light
Worn it on a few outing so far. I paired it with a wool sweater for a fishing outing in 15 degree weather. It blocked the wind and kept me warm enough to fish. Great for backcountry skiing as well. It is too warm for me to wear on the ascent but great to put in at breaks or transitions. Stayed warm even after being soaked with sweat from the uphill... Read More. Also great to throw over a shirt for cold evenings out in town.
The perfect down jacket?
This jacket is way warmer than it looks, and for its weight. Fits true to size. Im 511 185 pounds with 42in chest and 34 waist and large fits great. if you have a smaller chest/waist, you might be able to go to a medium. Stylish design, and not bulky at all.

Great fit for a tall and skinny person- good for exercise
Ive had a Nanopuff jacket for some years- the earlier version was not quilted, this version looks better- albeit not quite as warm and that fabric seems not quite as breathable. The fit is superb, plenty sleeve length, nice pockets and hood is sufficient for cold wind
Great Lightweight Travel Jacket
The material is lightweight and very warm for the weight. It's a bit swishy but overall very soft with a dull sheen. My typical use case for this is cotton t-shirt + long sleeved cotton shirt + micro puff. This can keep me comfortable down to about 35 degrees F with mild walking and no wind chill. For reference I have tried the Down Sweater, B... Read Moreetter Sweater, and Nano Air Jacket and the Micro Puff is slightly less warm than all three of those. At 5'11" and 190lbs I am often between M and L with Patagonia and the L would have left more room for layers underneath with slightly long sleeves. I went with M for a more casual, tailored look. Overall very happy with the Micro Puff!
super warm and versatile
have had a prior version and loved the fit, warmth and versatility as an insulated outer layer into mid 20°s. NJ has had a couple single digit polar blasts this winter and under a shell or even a down sweater this has kept me toasty. Liked so much I bought a second.

Welcome update to OG Micro Puff
I have one of the original Micro Puff jackets from a decade ago and it was one of my favorite pieces. Synthetic with good DWR was great for the northeast winters.

As warm if not warmer than a similar weight down jacket. Love this jacket, it'll be part of my regular kit from now on.
Love its Warmth-to-Weight ratio! Fabric is a bit fragilee.
Love the high-warmth-to-weight ratio of this hoody! It has been my daily go-to jacket for the last year in Breckenridge CO for my work in an adaptive ski program, mountain hiking in below-freezing temps, late night dog walks. Great fitting hood. Know, however, that the shell fabric is fairly fragile. For some reason, all of my fabric tears are on ... Read Moremy left sleeve and not my right. (?) NOSO patches have become a staple for me for keeping this hoodie in daily use. Recently, the zipper has blown out and I'll be sending this jacket in to Paty Repair for some help. Nevertheless, I love this jacket SO much I am ordering a new one in the meantime & will just keep 2 hoodies in future rotation. Summary: warmest lightweight jacket I have ever owned! Superb fit of the hood, both with and without a helmet. Maybe Patagonia can find a more tear-resistant fabric profile that only adds an ounce or so of weight to the jacket?

I love the fit of this jacket. 6ft 2in and 200-210lbs and it is a great outer layer or mid layer when it is super cold. The one thing that prevents me from giving it 5 stars is that it needs a helmet hood and a 2 way front zipper. If it had those things, it would be the best climbing jacket I could think of. I bought the DAS Light as well to try, b... Read Moreut it doesn't have drop pockets, a bottom hem cinch (so makes the jacket almost useless then), and it just doesn't feel as comfy as the micropuff. I think the Micro would be awesome if it kep all of its current features - but added an adjustable helmet hood and 2 way zipper. Nearly free additions and minimal added weight and it is a sure winner. I ended up returning the DAS Light and the Micro puff in hopes that the Micro puff will someday soon have those additions mentioned above so I can buy it and use it for my intended purpose as an outer layer on summer climbs, and as a bonus mid layer in my bellow 0F backcountry trips in MN and greater ranges. I think with that, the DAS Light would be superflous since all of us bring hardy shells for conditions anyways. The micro is almost perfect.
I love my micro puff hoodie
It is light weight, close fitting, warm and a little water repellent. I wear it under a heavy shell on very cold days when working as a ski patroller. When in the back country it is my go to puffy at the top of long climbs. Finally I grab it on all but the coldest days when heading out to work or dinner.
Super light - Super warm
This hooded jacket is extremely warm for its weight and bulk. The hood fits snug around my head, so a helmet would be worn on top of the garment, and I have room for a base layer or light-weight shirt underneath. That's all that's needed due to the quality of the insulation. If it really cold (below freezing), I add a waterproof shell ove... Read Morertop.

Comfortable and warm
I have had this jacket for a few months and have really enjoyed this jacket. It is nice and light, and being able to stuff it inside of itself is a great feature as well.

I bought this jacket because I wanted something lighter weight and breathable. It's much lighter with similar warmth to the nano puff. Overall really happy with it, except the fit.

Hi Brent, we're sorry to hear about the sizing issue through the torso of your Men's Micro Puff Hoody. Please take advantage of our [free exchanges](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) at any time.
I was skeptical it would be sufficiently warm because it was so light but I have been more than pleased. With layers it works for me from 55 to 20 on walks, playing golf (great freedom of movement) and dry weather skiing. If it wasnt for Patagonias embracing of the false narrative of anthropogenic climate disaster, l would be completely happy.
I have owned two of these so far.. Great lightweight insulation piece. Only drawback is the zipper which fails after extended use. 200+ days.

Very impressive jacket
I've owned this jacket since 2018 and in the past 4 years put it through the wringer. Lots of everyday wear, climbing, and hiking.

The hood zipping up over the chin also adds a surprising amount of warmth. Easily fits under helmets.

I use some of the gear tape Patagonia sells to patch it up and its as good as new.
Warm but not waterproof
The jacket is really nice and warm. However, after wearing it in the rain, I felt the rain water go through the jacket onto my skin once it had penetrated the material.

Perfect for gram counters
This jacket has everything you need (excellent insulation, very packable) and nothing you don’t (strictly need). It’s excellent for outings you want to minimize the weight & bulk penalty. The neck could be a little wider in the future for easier layering.

Stellar warmth. Wonderful movement.
I purchased this jacket after owning a DAS light for the past couple years and though I was hesitant I really love this jacket. Light and packs small all well keeping me warm.

And it layers incredibly nice under my DAS and DAS light if I need extra warmth.
Very great jacket. I love it. I was between this and the nano puff, but after research went with this. Material seems to be strong despite what some claim. And the jacket is super warm.
