Ms Micro Puff® Hoody

Kinda Large
June 15, 2021


Its a year around jacket that even in harsh winter weather with an added sweater and maybe some base layers it keeps me warm.

June 11, 2021

Perfect tool for multiple temps

Needed a lightweight puffy that would be between my down sweater and my nana puff hoodie. Works great

June 2, 2021

Love it !

This jacket is not just warm and lightweight, it is super durable as well. I love the material and way it looks. Only complaint is the zipper when fully zipped up rubs on my neck. If only there was something to block the zipper from rubbing.

Lightweight warmth

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.

May 18, 2021

The best!

These jackets are simple, functional, and handsome.

Awesome piece

good for all four seasons in the adk's where we play

my second one!!! well other is a nano the mountains all the time and both perform up to expectations....

Very good product

Beautiful , lightweight and comfortable

April 29, 2021

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 never found it particularly breathable and therefore it isn't great for fast paced pursuits or strenuous activity, but for lightweight warm... Read Moreth its unbeatable. 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. I have found that it doesn't bode well against a stray ember or two from a campfire, but a few patches from Patagonia support fixed it right up. Great jacket

April 28, 2021

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. But I wish there was more of a difference in warmth between my nano jacket that I use as a daily jacket and this micro puff hoody that I'm using for ultra-lightweight camping.

Response from Patagonia
April 29, 2021

Thanks for the feedback. Your Micro Puff® Hoody is filled with 65 grams of PlumaFill synthetic insulation—a revolutionary featherlight down alternative. Your Nano Puff® Hoody has 60 grams of PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation Eco. The Micro Puff® is a more technical piece for those fast ascents where weight is crucial.

April 26, 2021


Excellent for backpacking. packs down tiny but keeps me warm. The medium is a little short on me since I'm pretty tall, but I dont think i'd want to go bigger

April 25, 2021

Just Right

6-2 180 and tried the large, but too big. The medium is just right, still with room for under layers.

April 20, 2021


Initially I was a little undecided due to the stiffness of the collar and hip elastic band. Once it got broken in a little it feels great! I wear it under a shell for cold, rainy, weather and alone in almost any other conditions. Seems to keep you at just the right temperature due to the light weight and effective insulation. Not good around fire... Read More or open flames. Outer material is very thin, which is great for weight and packability, but not so great if you are hard on your gear like I am. Every once in a while I'll get a small piece of insulation pulled through. All-in-all its a daily driver.

April 16, 2021

The perfect warm jacket

I just love the fit and the feel of this jacket. It runs true to size and it's the perfect amount of warmth. Especially in Michigan weather that can turn from 50 degrees to 30 degrees the next day. This jacket could handle anything.

April 15, 2021

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... Read Moreop it with your hooded nylon rain jacket. I did have a problem with the zipper pull, but that was easily replaced. Having the hood is great in Minnesota. 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.

April 10, 2021

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).

April 9, 2021

Best Jacket I ever owned

This is the best jacked I have ever owned. First time I wore it, I was backpacking in the snow. No flaws. Best part about it, you can pack it up and use it as a pillow

April 8, 2021

Feather light and crazy warm

Love the micro puff, I bought it to put in my pack while on filming trips as it packs up to next to nothing. For the weight it's incredibly warm and it dries quick when wet. I did rip it a few times already but it's easy to fix with a few patches.

April 7, 2021

Ms Micro Puff® Hoody

Great balance between weight, size and warmth.

March 27, 2021

super packable

great product, great price. This piece is incredibly durable, as an inner layer on extremely cold days in winter, or as spring/fall go to piece, or cool mountain summer nights by the fire. This replaces my old one that was 5years old but still useable.

March 25, 2021

Works for me

Very happy with this jacket. Good fit under waders and/or with another layer. I would buy another.

March 25, 2021

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.

Response from Patagonia
March 25, 2021

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]( it under warranty.

March 25, 2021

Favorite jacket...EVER

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.

March 23, 2021

Patagonia Micro Puffy hoody

Really nice product! it is the second one for me and I will use it for every kind of activity: climbing, hiking, skiing...

March 23, 2021

Extra Lightweight and Warm

This is an excellent jacket that I can easily wear from the single digits up to 50 degrees and not feel under or over dressed. It's that good!

March 20, 2021

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.

March 19, 2021

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.

March 16, 2021

Nice fit

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.

March 11, 2021

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

Super light and cool

This was a birthday present for my husband and he loves it!

Would recommend this jacket very warm

Super warm

I was kind of sceptic about how warm it can be, but that jacket if fabulous, just with one t-shirt and it's done. That's incredibly light to. Amazing! It worth every €.

Great Packable Layer

Nice layer for long days on the river in the fall as the snow starts to fall. Great weight to warmth ratio.

Great warmth to weight

Love this jkt for before and after activities, trail running, mountain biking and climbing. It’s super light and small pack size is ideal to pack away as an emergency warm shell in a running vest or mtb pack for winter.

Read Moreas to how warm it is considering how light and thin it is. 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.

February 13, 2021

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. I take it on my almost daily solo hikes in the mountains usually with a soft shell over it and a wool long sleeve underneath. The jacket keeps me warm while hik... 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.

February 9, 2021

Lightweight Warmth

I really need the hood for windy conditions. This a great lightweight solution that I can layer as needed.

February 8, 2021

Great for layering

This jacket is great for layering or using on its own when its a little warmer out.

February 6, 2021

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.

February 3, 2021

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. The jacket itself is very light and thin, but keeps you very warm and going a size up gives you the ability to layer if you need to. I ride my bike a lot through the city and this jacket has usually held up well but I am about to be o... Read Moren my third!

Almost perfect

I use this jacket as a shell for hiking and fat biking. I am absolutely blown away with the performance of this jacket. It fits true to size, blocks wind, and has an amazing warmth to weight ratio. It also seems to help regulate body temperature during periods of higher activity. Honestly, its the most impressive jacket Ive ever owned. One flaw ke... Read Moreeps it from being perfect. Almost every time I zip up this jacket the fabric gets caught in the zipper. It happens about 4 inches from the top. Multiple times Ive had to take the jacked off like a hoodie and gently work to get the fabric unstuck from the zipper. Im sure it will eventually rip. Im not sure if this is a design flaw or if I just received a flawed jacket. Past that, its perfect.

January 26, 2021

As great as I expected

Fit and ultra lightweight but keep the wind out. Great insulation. It's comfortable even the temp is around 0 degree Celsius (with t-shirt and another layer). Keep in mind the jacket is not waterproof. In medium rain the jacket give up in 30 min or 45 if the rain is light

Micro Puff delivers what is expected

Best ratio for warmth to weight. Size medium fitted perfectly for 185cm 73kg.

Deceivingly Rugged

Great Purchase

I love my Patagonia products and when I was looking for an insulating jacket this was the perfect find. I have zero complaints with this product. I originally bought the micro puff jacket but did not like how high the collar went on my neck. The micro puff hoody takes care of that completely and is worth the extra money. Great fit.

a go to jacket

i second other reviewers in stating how light and functional this jacket is. very comfortable as well. good for packing as backup, and i like wearing it near the ocean for 'warm when wet' qualities that down can't offer. highly recommended.

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 am constantly underestimating how warm this thing is because it's so light when I pick it up. The cut is perfect and although I'm slim I think it will fit a variety of people well. 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!

Hands down the best jacket I own. If you can only buy 1 jacket this should be on the top of your list.

The perfect warm layer.

Despite being so lightweight this hoody provides excellent warmth. I always keep it stuffed into my guide/touring pack and when the temps drop I can quickly fish it out and throw it on to warm up. You simply can't beat the weight/space to warmth ratio of this layer.

November 30, 2020

Very warm and light.

The jacket is great: I wear it alone or as a layer in colder weather (this is mostly how I use it). In really cold, damp, north-east US weather, it is a light layer under my shell.

Perfect Fit

I wear an Xl jacket and unlike most ski apparel, this runs true to size. Not too big, not too tight.

Light (and responsible) is Right!

By far the best warmth for weight of any jacket that I own, or have ever owned. Also nice to know that when I choose to purchase Patagonia products I choose to protect workers through fair trade and protect the environment through responsible manufacturing processes.

Great First-Generation Accomplishment

The sustainability, materials, and skill in making this jacket are certainly an achievement. It is light, warm, comfortable in a variety of elements, and sheds the bulky, overwarm, stale issues of similar products. 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 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.

November 23, 2020

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. This jacket is amazingly light weight and seems unsubstantial. It packs into a 2 fist sized pocket. But it is very warm. And sheds the rain or snow well. For real rain I add a more waterproof shell. For belo... Read Morew zero I add a down vest or down shirt. It is well made and sturdy. I am not at all careful with it. Occasionally threads in the shell pull loose and I just cut them short. Never pull them. I throw it into the washer and dryer with regular temps and cycles with my clothes about monthly. No problem. This is one of my favorite pieces of Patagonia gear. And I have lots.

November 22, 2020

Possibly the best jacket created

Warm, light weight, and confident I often forget I am wearing this. Everyone should have a micro puff in their outdoor tool Kit. 6/190 Large fits well, with room for a solid mid-layer. Highly Recommend

November 20, 2020

Great fit! Super comfortable!

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.

Better Than I Thought

Not what I thought I was getting . Parka and hoodie should be much more clear. However, best darn hoodie I ever saw. I love the bright blue color.

November 18, 2020

super comfortable

super comfortable and warm enough with a sweater or sweatshirt down to low 30's, maybe high 20's. Any lower will require another layer underneath.

November 17, 2020

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.

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.

November 15, 2020

Perfect for Minnesota

I wanted to make sure I could fit the jacket with a bigger sweater and zip it up. Could have gone with a large but I still love it! And, at 40% off whats not to love!!

November 13, 2020

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.

November 9, 2020


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.

High quality, versatile Very pleased

Warm and light weight

I use this jacket for hang gliding. I need lots of warmth and light weight clothing and this jacket is perfect it keep both my body and head and neck warm and fits very well under my helmet. Thank you for making such good and useful products.

October 30, 2020

Weight to warmth killer

I cannot attest to how warm it would keep you below 20 degrees but at that temp (on a recent October early snow filled hike) I was plenty warm. Zero complaints. It also breathes pretty well and looks good doing it.

October 28, 2020

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.

October 10, 2020

Happy overall

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.

October 5, 2020

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.

September 18, 2020


I love my Micro. I have the one without the hood and loved it so much I grabbed this one with the hood. Very toasty for camp or under my Fishing waders. I love the huge inside pockets.

September 18, 2020

Light, nice cut and warm

light and fits really comfortable. could honestly sleep in this thing. good outer layer for the fall and nice inside later for colder months. highly recommend. worth the price.

September 15, 2020

Fits like a glove

I havent used on a trip yet but have a nano puff. This fits even better and the good seems perfect for an extra layer in the hammock. Cant wait to try this baby out on a real test run.

September 9, 2020

Great buy

I got this at 50% off. Super lightweight but warm with a tee shirt at 34*.

September 6, 2020

excellent jacket with slight flaws

Excellent materials and insulation but runs a little big and really needs a more technical fit. Arm holes a little too big so that reaching overhead lifts whole jacket off hips. Also needs some adjustability in the cuffs and especially hem.

September 5, 2020

Perfect weight to warmth

I've had many Patagonia Nano Puff items over the years, but this micro puff is noticeably lighter and seems warmer. Great jacket! Wish they made it in a quarter zip pullover as well.

September 5, 2020

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.

September 4, 2020

Great range of use in different temps.

All good - room to layer or wear with a t-shirt in cooler mornings

September 4, 2020


Using as a layer for climb up Kilimanjaro it is warm and light weight and easy to pack the hood will help keep my head warm at higher elevations.

September 1, 2020

a little warmer

I liked the insulation and its washability and the lightness of the jacket. It is perfect for cold weather when I am going about my daily activities or when I have a fleece on.

August 21, 2020

Baggy fit

I love the Patagonia Ultralight Down Hoody which is slim fit. The Micro Puff jacket fit seems to be less performance oriented, with a baggier fit. Please consider making this product Slim Fit.

August 17, 2020

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.

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.

It seemed like total hype (a better puffy, whatever) but I'm really attached to this thing.

I have used this jacket throughout Spring and Summer in Kentucky thus far. It is by far the lightest jacket I have ever worn.

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!

May 1, 2020

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 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.

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.

February 14, 2020

As described on the web store

I got what I was expecting. I have not yet tested it in very cold conditions, but I bought it for the light weight and it is what I wanted. Internal zip handle in the stowing pocket could be a little bigger.

Outstanding piece

I rarely feel compelled to write reviews but this jacket and its designers deserves to have its praises sung. This is the only item I have ever seen that is made of synthetic fill but beats down of the equivalent weight for warmth. It is impossibly warm for how light it is and the hooded version seals in body warmth extremely effectively. This is a... Read More technical piece but looks good for casual wear. A few reviews have mentioned that they find the collar too high. This might be true but when you put this to use in the mountains, the high neck seals in precious heat and I wouldn't want it any lower. I've worn this with just a base layer in temps of around minus 1 degree Celsius and been comfortable even at very low activity level. Nothing else I have owned has come close in terms of warmth to weight ratio.

Very light indeed. For its weight is warm but but around 0ºC it starts to feel thin.

Ms Micro Puff® Hoody

Warm and cosy, top quality as always from Patagonia :) the M size model could be slightly bigger in size if to wear together with sweater underneath, but if just with a shirt then it's perfect in size. I'm 5'11.5 ft and 182pund.

January 20, 2020

Bring nothing with you...

That was the slogan on the video .... and it’s apparently true ! Paired with my ascensionist shell for windy days paragliding or rainy days commuting , and on its own on normal days , this jacket has proven very useful in a number of occasions and one of the best items I’ve recently bought . Highly recommended !!!

Verry happy

This jacket exceeded my expectations, Super light and warm. Opted for a Medium and I can still fit a thick sweater underneath without it becoming tight.

January 17, 2020

My favorite light-weight jacket!

It's hard to believe a jacket this light can be so warm. I wear it more than any other jacket because its so light, packable, sylish and most importantly warm! I'm usually a minimalist in my clothing but I have three different colors in this jacket because I wear it every day in the cold months.

January 17, 2020

Almost perfect

I have had my micropuff since December of 2018. The warmth to weight ratio of this jacket is incredible. It compresses very well and hasn’t lost its loftyness after being thrown in a stuff sack 100 times. I use it the most when bringing a belay jacket would be overkill but I still want something more than just my Nano Puff. The face fabric blocks t... Read Morehe wind very well. The one major flaw however is that the hood is not helmet compatible. It is very a trim fitted hood designed to be worn under your helmet. Which would make sense if it were a mid layer but it isn’t. Because it isn’t breathable I’m only wearing it when I’m not moving. Please make the hood helmet compatible on the next generation. I’d like to hear from a Patagonia rep why they chose to not have a helmet compatible hood.

January 15, 2020

Great jacket

This is a pretty perfect jacket. It's lightweight but retains warmth like there's a little furnace inside. It blocks wind and keeps me dry. It looks great without being too puffy and has a pretty solid silhouette. The hood looks a little ridiculous but is function over form. Highly recommend.

As indicated in the description. It is comfortable, hot, windproof, waterproof, it is perfect for going out to the mountain.

My most versatile jacket (Period)

The title is a BIG claim and I usually do not write reviews. But, with this jacket, I had to. I lost my mountain hardwear ghost whisperer jacket on a bus in Spain.

I used the jacket as my sleeping bag on the side of a dirt road in Spain, during the race. I wear it daily commuting to work on my FAT bike. I wore it during my successful attempt of the Rapha Festive 500 in Colorado (A challenge to cycle 500k between Christmas and New Year’s), where temperatures dropped to -14f. I wear it skinning in the backcountry and up the resorts early in the mornings. I unzip it going up and just zip it up when skiing down. This is an amazing jacket for those who are always moving. I think I would need more if I were sitting around in the cold. But, why would I do that? ;-) Sorry, no photos......

My son would never wear a coat even in the coldest of weather. However, his new Micro Puff coat is so light and comfortable that he wears it all the time!!

Awesome Jacket!

I’ve had other Patagonia jackets in the past but none are as light and warm as this one. The micro puff is now my favorite jacket all around and my go to for just about any adventure.

After just over a year of hard use this puffy has continued to hit all the marks. Very light and packable, yet quite warm and windproof. Also the styling is A+, looks great around town too.

This Micropuff Hoodie is the greatest jacket I've ever owned.

And I have lots of Patagonia jackets. I have worn this for a year. It is so thin and lightweight one can almost see through the panels. It can pack down into the pocket making a small bundle in my pack. I keep thinking it will fail me, but it is warm enough for our Minnesota winters. Nice arrangement of pockets, especially the inside panel ones tha... Read Moret are large enough to hold a book or my iPad mini. The hood is so handy.

Best Jacket/Hoodie I've Ever Owned

Quality: This jacket has the durability and quality that we're all accustomed to from Patagonia. Whether you're hiking Mount Rainier or going cross-country through Afghanistan, this jacket will withstand whatever you have to throw at it. Warmth: For the weight, this is the warmest mid-layer I've ever owned but it also distributes h... Read Moreeat extremely well, so I never feel the need to take it off. Sizing: I am 6'2" and weigh 210lbs. I have uncommonly wide shoulders and the size Large fits me perfectly. The fabric stretches just enough to be comfortable on folks with non-standard measurements. Patagonia really hit the mark with this jacket and you'll know why as soon as you put one on. It's scary light, super packable, and just the right amount of warm for active individuals. I convinced my whole team to buy one after how impressed I was with its construction and performance.

January 2, 2020

Warm - Light and packs down super small!

A very lightweight option perfect for adventures with limited space, a new essential in my bike packing kit, climbing kit, kayaking kit - in fact it pretty much will now be coming with me on all adventures or dog walks or chilly evenings around the fire.

January 2, 2020

Great Jacket, would definitely buy again!

Really great jacket, been happy with my purchase. I'm 5'8 and 150lbs, normally I wear a medium but after reading the reviews on the fit I went with the small which fits perfectly.

Warm and lightweight

I've been wearing this for a little over a year and enjoyed its light weight and ability to generate heat when being active.

I love the little details like the hemming on the cuff's and hood, dual internal stow pockets, and zippered outer pockets. This pairs well with a fleece or wool vest for optimum layering. Definitely pick one of these up. I recommend to all who want a lightweight versatile hooded jacket.

I bought the Men's Micro

I bought the Men's Micro Puff Hoody as an insulation layer for skiing, and also for casual, light weight jacket. It is very comfortable, and works perfectly for both skiing and an everyday insulation piece. It has quickly become my go-to outerwear jacket for running to the store, a quick walk with my dogs, or my drive to work.

December 18, 2019

Perfect lightweight mid-layer

Amazing mid-layer, but I am pretty comfortable using it as top-later for semi-wet weather with temperatures between 15C and 0C. In combination with the Torrentshell jacket it’s perfect for some wetter and colder weather. Definite recommend.

Unbelievably light, Unbelievably packable, Unbelievably delicate

The micro puff is so light it barely feels like you're wearing anything. It packs down smaller than any jacket of comparable warmth. Unfortunately though it is incredibly delicate.

December 17, 2019

Great coat, fits a little large

Patagonia needs a slim fit/athletic cut for some of these jackets. I love everything about my new coat, except the cut. It bunches up awkwardly in front, and it's wide in the sides.

Great packable warmth

This jacket is great for your layering kit bag, I pair it with a Houdini in the rain, and if I need more warmth a R1 Hoodie. My only ding is that on mine it seems like they didn't put any insulation in some of the baffles on both elbows so I get cold spots on both arms right above the elbow. A weird place for cold spots.

MS Micro Puff problems

I regretfully write this I say regret as I am a avid Patagonia supporter but I am very very disappointed for my long awaited purchase of this jacket only to have the filling continually surface through the seams of my jacket. Very frustrating and quit annoying.

Response from Patagonia
January 8, 2020

Hey there, thanks for the review and we are so sorry to hear that the insulation is leaking through those seams. Just like down, plumes sometimes come through stitch holes, so too does the PlumaFill insulation come through the stitch holes at times. If you’re dissatisfied, please feel free to [return]( it and we can exchange for a [Nano Puff]( that doesn’t have this problem like down or PlumaFill. To fix it yourself, for small instances, were it is tiny individual fibers, you can break them off. If it is a larger white clump of insulation, we suggest you try to pull it back into the jacket by pinching it from behind and pulling the fabric forward. You can also cut the larger white clump with scissors, but be extremely careful not to cut the fabric or the stitch.

December 16, 2019

Just right

The micro puff hoody was just what I was looking for. A bit warmer than my nano, plus a hood.

Hi Maryann, thanks for taking the time to write us a review! We're really sorry to hear that you feel our quality has declined over the years.

LOVE this jacket. Perfect for mid-Atlantic winters below 3000'. Below 30F, I need more than a T-shirt or lightweight Capilene base layer. Very stylish and functional.

That is not my experience less than 2 years into this jacket. It's pretty dadgum awesome!

The jacket’s hood is the best hood I’ve ever had on a jacket. The only think I dislike is the main zipper. It occasionally gets caught on the flaps behind it, and I wonder if a larger YKK zipper would preclude this. I’m also worried about the durability of the pockets in terms of car keys.

Having loved my Nano Puff Hoody over the past number of years, I thought I should try the new, extra-feathery Micro Puff Hoody.

The Micro Puff uses Pertex which, in my experience, offers a... Read More more tenacious, longer wearing DWR (water shed) characteristics. The features on the Micro Puff are more spare (no internal zippered chest pocket) and the hood is more of a skull fit. The drop in internal pockets are good for stashing skins when doing yoyo laps in the backcountry, but are not as useful for stashing your sunglasses, lip balm or Clif Bars. But the Micro - though lighter and more compressible - feels a skosh warmer. As for the Nano Puff, it's a good daily driver in town and works pretty damn well in the mountains, too.

Love this jacket. Super light and packable. It has also kept me warm with a midweight layer underneath in temps in the 20s (F). Doesn't breath as well as my Nano Air, but I can't think of anything else that could be improved. I'm 5' 8" 155 and wear a small. It fits fine over a base and mid layer

my second one

I love this jacket. Its so comfortable and disappears as a mid layer on cold days. It fits so well. Slightly delicate tho..

Light and Warm

This is an awesome Jacket. Love that they are light yet warm.

Worth it

This is one of my favorites. It's very light, yet keeps me extremely warm. Also very packable and can be handy when traveling. Overall worth it.

Micro Puff Hoody

Coat fits great with lots of good room for movement. Ample stuff pockets inside are great. Big exterior zip pockets outside have the bottom of the zipper too high to comfortably stuff in my hands on a cold evening; it feels like I’m going to tear the zipper

Micro Puf Hoody

Great versatile hoody. Perfect for travel. I got size small and the fit is just right for me (5'7", 150 lbss). Love the jacket so also getting one for my wife.

My MicroPuff is never far

My MicroPuff is never far and it's always in my bag when I travel. Great product that I can wear almost year round. Typically my first layer after my shell when skiing.

Micro puff hoody

Excellent overall. Very warm for the weight. Ver light. Like the fit of thr.hood. Only improvement would be slightly larger in the shoulders.

Love it

Best purchase I have made!!!!

They fixed the sizing

Super happy with my new Mirco. I had the original season version, but the new color had me stoked. Was even happier to find out that they slimmed it out and streamlined it a bit. The old one was a touch loose.

So far, Awesome!

Obviously time will tell as I have only worn it once in easy conditions. However, first impressions are great and it's just like it has been described. Super light, very compressible and looks great. Hopefully, it will be a long term piece for me.

Love it!

The hood makes it! The feel is light and comfortable.

Really, really nice!

Home run on the Micro Puff. Big step up on the last generation. Thank you.

November 5, 2019

Very nice

A lightweight, comfortable jacket. One issue - when partially unzipped, the collar annoyingly rubs against the chin/neck.

Would buy for my whole

Would buy for my whole family if it was permissable

Lightweight and warm

Great for most adventures in the cold or brisk weather, can be great used on its own but with a shell in the rain to keep in the heat.

November 5, 2019

Great jacket. Love the fit

Great jacket. Love the fit and warmth. The under-the-helmet hood design isn't my favorite, but it is certainly not a deal breaker. If you don't absolutely need the hood, especially knowing the tight fit, I would recommend the jacket version. Otherwise a great jacket.

November 5, 2019

It’s perfect!

Love the warmth and weight. The hood is an excellent addition and adds to the versatility. I also love the interior large pockets. Thanks for making awesome gear!

Micro Puff

Beautiful product

Great all-around insulation layer

This jacket is wonderful; it has been great for everything I do, from work to play. The only jacket I own which surpasses this new micro puff in warmth, comfort, and versatility is my old Patagonia down jacket. I have always worried about the durability of my beloved puffy, but have never torn it (I'm highly neurotic about this) and it has nev... Read Moreer packed out. Safe to say that with this new micro puff jacket, I will be taking a lot of wear off of my old puffy by making the micro puff my go to insulation layer. The old puffy will be reserved for only the coldest of days.

November 5, 2019

Super light and warm

Everything I expected!

November 5, 2019

Warm, Long, and stretchy

As a taller individual it's nice to have jackets that come in a decent length. This puff will not disappoint to keep you warm and look pretty cool doin it. it also has just enough stretch to allow full range of motion for any adventure someone may be on.

Perfect Lightweight Jacket

I love it! Only been wearing this new jacket a week now, but it's great. Pockets feel a little high, but maybe I should have bought a size larger. I'm 5'10" in a medium. The snug fitting hood is amazing and my first one like this.

November 4, 2019

Versatile piece of outerwear

Hand down the best jacket I've ever bought from Patagonia!

November 4, 2019

warm and functional

Stoked on this hoodie, and loving its warmth

November 4, 2019

All around wicked

Even lighter than I expected. Super comfy and versatile. The hood on the small is a bit smaller than id like, but i can work around it!

November 4, 2019

big performance in a small package

Really impressed with the warmth to size ratio of this jacket. A great all-arounder
