Light and warm
I have owned a nanopuff jacket for several years and it's my favorite coat for winter. With cooler temps approaching I was in the market for a new vest, and ordered this during the recent sale. I can wear both S and M depending on the item and the desired fit, and bought this in M so I can wear it over a thick hoodie or sweater. I love the lig...

I love this vest
I am not a vest person but I have hardly had a day when I have not worn this. I live in a place with a wide swing in daily temperature and this is a perfect layer, both indoors and out. It is so light you don't know you are wearing it. No suggestions for improvement - maybe more colors?
Best Vest EVER.
Third time purchasing this vest, only because I wear it 24/7 almost 10 months of the year. Lightweight, fits easily as layer under whatever you want, never stinks, washes perfectly, tough as anything, best vest ever. I am 5ft8/135 lbs and medium fits perfectly.

Hi Susan, thank you for taking the time to write a review. Great news! We've restocked the [Women's Nano Puff Vest](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-nano-puff-vest/84247.html). Feel free to check those at any time.

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.

Hi Elsie! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're very sorry for the disappointment with the lack of interior pockets.

Practical yet stylish
Gorgeous, rich color (dark ruby) that pairs well. Tailored, flattering fit. Ultralight but still warm. Pockets are well placed and spacious.

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.
Hey Penny, thank you for the review. We're sorry to hear that it sounds like you fall between sizes with this particular product. We'd like to mention that we're happy to provide garment measurements if you ever need them, you'll just want to reach out to [customer service](https://help.patagonia.com/s/). If you happen to change your mind and find that the fit on this vest isn't working for you, you're welcome to send it back for a refund or merchandise credit.
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.
Thin material, not enough insulation
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. You might like to check out our [Women's Down Sweater Vest](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-down-sweater-vest/84628.html?dwvar_84628_color=CNY), which has a little more loft to it, though it's still very light. Please let us know if we can be of any help!
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!
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.

Thank you for this feedback, Natalie! It's very helpful for our product design team as they plan future seasons' offerings.
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.
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.

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... Read More water in a protective bag, and hang dry. It dries fast and has no shrinkage. Wonderful!
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.
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.
It is too long in the hip area.
Hello Carol, we're sorry the length did not work out on the Women's Nano Puff Vest. Please feel free to [return or exchange](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it. We are also standing by with garment measurements, please let us know if that might help.
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.
- 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!
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 :)
This is just right! I wear it over long sleeved shirts or a light sweater. It's just right! The pockets are large enough to hold my phone, keys, or mittens. It's perfect for a day when the temps are in the 40s-50s and not needing a coat, but ideal for an extra layer when it is chilly and not needing a heavy sweater.
Super light, great quality, great look and fit.
I bought this for my wife to replace a tired and and worn Patagonia vest (that found a new home via Family Services). It's super light, great quality, and the fit is perfect.

Very light weight
Package arrived and before I opened it I thought wrong item was shipped. This vest is super light weight. It is not a vest for cold weather to be worn on its own. Great for an added layer of warmth.

I'm very happy with this item. It replaced a similar nano puff I had worn hard for at least 15 years.

Light Weight, but Warm Best Ever Vest
I have this vest in several colors in size small, and one in size medium. Im 54 and weigh 122. The smalls are a little snug when zipped, but usually left open, anyway.

You may want to go one size up if layering the vest over a heavy sweater. Otherwise, the fit is pretty much true to size, except a little snug in hips. My only complaint is I wish there were more colors! Maybe Harvest Gold, or Ivory, or Taupe-Brown. Also, it holds up to numerous machine washings and dryings in dryer.
Much too long! Had to send it back!
It is a nice vest, but much too long. The armpits are too low and the waist falls at my hips. All your products are too long these days and I have to return everything. You need to add petite sizing.
Hello Marilyn! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear about the fit that you experienced. Feedback like this is crucial to improving products for future seasons so we'll pass this along to our design crew.
I returned this
I returned this vest. I have been looking for a replacement for my 'better sweater vest' which I love but it is covered in dog hair. I thought this one would be a good option but it is missing the interior patch pockets that I really need, esp. when I travel. So I returned it and the hunt continues.
Light weight, yet warm, layers easily, perfect!
I had no idea how much this vest would improve my life. I have been wearing it almost every day for my 2 mile walk with my dog. Ideal for those days when it is too warm for a jacket, but too chilly to go without. This vest is comfortable, has great zippered pockets, and it's a perfect fit for my body type, and for my casual, active, lifestyle.... Read More
Up down zipper
This vest is great I like the length and the slenderizing waistline. What it needs is a 2 way zipper. When zipped and then the wearer sits down it rides up around the waist and then the neck of the vest goes up to the wearers ears. This could be easily remedied with an up/down zipper. This would make this vest perfecto and I would own one in every ... Read Morecolor!! Namaste'
LOVE LOVE LOVE this vest!
This vest is warm yet lightweight. The cut is very comfortable and feminine. I dislike vests or jackets that add pressure to the back of my neck when hiking, but I didn't even give the collar on this vest a thought. I just bought another color because you just can't have too many good-looking vests. Thank you, Patagonia!
Dog Walking Dream Vest
Love this vest and wear it just about every day of my life. I walk the park trails with my 2 pups each morning and this 3-season vest keeps me organized and warm.

The perfect layer
This is the mid layer I didnt know I needed. Its the perfect layer for when you need just a hint of extra warmth, but not too much. I wore this vest during a cold windy drizzly beach weekend on the Oregon coast. I wore it over a thin wool layer and under a wind / rain layer and I was the most comfortable person there that weekend.
I love Patagonia vests and I have been looking for a vest in this color for a while. Finally I have one! I ordered the Dark Ruby and its a gorgeous color and great for Fall. I find that the Nano Puff style vest runs a little big and the XS fits me perfectly. For reference I am about 115 lbs.
This is my go-to in-between layering item
You cannot beat the Nano Puff vest for light weight and packability. The fit is just a tiny bit snug (I am usually a size 10, 5'5, 142 lbs). But the Medium easily fits over a flannel shirt or wool or cap baselayer. I prefer this fit, as I can choose to layer it under other outerwear.
I have purchased several of these vests in the past. This one seems to lack the amount of filling (down) Im used to. I saw one on another person at a large gathering and it looked the same way mine does - flat - like the filling was missing. Im not sure whats going on with this one, but its definitely different from my previous purchases.
Hi Patricia, thanks for taking the time to write a review. The Nano Puff is actually made with synthetic insulation and is intended to be a lightweight style vest. If you are looking for something with more loft, we'd consider browsing our [down insulation](https://www.patagonia.com/shop/womens-down-jackets-vests) options.
Great for Layering
I previously had this vest in a small, my usual size in Patagonia, but it always felt too big, particularly in the chest area (I'm slender and a 34b).

Answers to these questions for this one: No give in the fabric, so don't plan on too much stretch. Warm but not poofy which is nice. My biggest body part is my chest, I am a 40DD so it fits just barely over my chest. I can zip it up but I ... Read Moredon't want to gain a pound. As with most clothes the rest is a bit tent like.

Hi Rene, thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We truly appreciate this feedback regarding adding the chest measurement in every item description. Don't hesitate to [contact us](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) in the future as we're happy to find that info for you.
Very versatile high quality light weight vest
I wanted a vest that I can wear under light jackets or a shell for chillier days throughout the year (I live in the U.K. where it can get chilly any time of the year). I also wanted something that wasn’t bulky. I love this vest- wonderfully light but definitely keeps me toasty warm and it comes up on the neck nicely so don’t even need a scarf which... Read More I usually like to wear when chilly. I have worn it regularly since my purchase, and to walk my dog I love combining it with the Patagonia fleece I bought a year ago which is also a great piece. I will no doubt wear it on my cycling commute to the train station on chilly mornings, under any jacket. It looks sporty but smart enough to wear to work under whatever jacket or coat you have... I am 5’3, and 130 pounds so I was agonising over whether to get a small or medium. Went with a small for the best so it could be on the snug side and fit under other jackets etc. It’s perhaps - snug on the hips, and nice room around the chest which I appreciate because I am about a 34-C/D. I got my fleece form Patagonia in M which is roomy and covers my hips, and I have a Patagonia shell which I got in M, cause I wanted to be able to layer. But I would say for a vest having it be a little fitted is better. I am a huge fan of Patagonia’s products and ethos, snd the price is high but i have found it worth the investment.
Great in between piece
I was looking for something lighter than my down vest to wear in the spring weather. I bought a nano vest a few years ago and they have definitely changed the fit. The small fits true to size where as my other one is a medium. I am a true small size person. I love the dark blue color. I know that I will get a lot of use out of this.
Exactly what I need
Love this vest! I had wanted a better puffy vest than the old, unbranded one I had been using from Goodwill these last several years- it just didnt have good insulating power. But this, oh baby!

The Best Vest!
The feather like feel makes it easy to grab and wear when heading outdoors to be in nature. I am happy I waited for it, the size was on back order for a few months but it was worth the wait! I didnt want a vest that felt too snugged, so I ordered up a size. Thank you for my first Patagonia purchase and I know not my last!
