Light weight and warm
I bought this to wear at home and for outside. When it's very cold out the vest is perfect around the house because it's lighter than a sweater or sweatshirt but keeps the chill away. The same can be said for the outside- a nice extra layer without bulk. I am between xs and s and in this vest the small felt more comfortable with enough ro...

Stylish, warm, and light weight
I love this vest! I purchased it as I was looking for a warm vest for spring and winter in the Midwest. I like that it is tailored/slim fit to be flattering vs boxy. It's great a casual vest running errands around town and grabbing coffee with a friend as well as for outdoor activities. I loved my first purchase so much, that I bought two addi...

An unusual cut
I have several jackets, vests and sweaters from Patagonia. This vest, however is cut unlike any other I own. It was too tight on the bottom, causing it to ride up and bunch at the chest/armpits, and the top half was cut too large/loose thus allowing the increased bunching. I was excited to add it to my wardrobe, however, I send it back due to the ... Read Morefit :(
Hey Lisa, thanks for the feedback on fit with our Nano Puff Vest. We're sorry to hear that it didn't work out. If you're curious about potential alternatives, the [Women's Down Sweater Vest](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-down-sweater-vest/84629.html?dwvar_84629_color=WLWT&cgid=root) might be a better fit for you. The bottom hem runs about a half inch bigger.
Had to return...too tight and no give in the belly.
I ordered the XL and XXL vests, and had to return both. Love Patagonia and everything they stand for, but wish some of the sizing had more "give" the XL was simply too tight on my Winnie-the-Poo shaped torso and then the XL was way too large. If the XL (which I have in other vests) just was a hair larger or there was a bit of stretch buil... Read Moret in to the sides, it would have been perfect. Having that 1-2" variability would likely help a lot of other people too. As it is, this cut is very straight and not great for stockier builds.
I tragically lost my trusted nanopuff vest and ordered this one as a replacement. I was sorely disappointed in it.

I wear a 27 or 28 inch waist pants and am generally a size 6 is most clothing brands. The fit was awful! The hips were still a little snug, and the chest was HUGE. Why would you do this Patagonia? Why are active women not even allowed to have a little bit of hips? And, why would my chest be two or three times the size of a small? Returning and looking elsewhere for a replacement vest (while still remaining hopeful my old one miraculously appears).
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review and we are very sorry to hear about the difficulties you had with this product. Please rest assured that we will be passing this along to our Product Team so they know about these fit issues.

Hi John, thank you for submitting this review. We're sorry to hear this vest didn't have as much insulation as you were looking for!

If you haven't done so already, we'll be happy to help you [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it.

Love this vest.
I love the color. It keeps my core warm. The style allows me to dress it up for work and also dress it down for casual wear. I love the feel of the material, and it is so lightweight I forget I have it on. With that said, I hope I don't gain any weight as it fits snuggly around the waist, but I still highly recommend this vest.

Hi my husband and I both got these at Christmas and I find that they're both much thinner than I had thought. It almost seems like there's almost no filling inside. Maybe that's how they're supposed to be? Very lightweight? Other than that they're fine.
Thank you so much for writing this review Margaret! Our Nano Puff Vests are incredibly light weight but will keep you very warm. If you are looking for something a bit more heavy and warm, we would suggest checking out our [Down Sweater Vests](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-nano-puff-vest/84247.html)!
Worst purchase ever. Warm is the first word in the item description. Its not! I dont think there is any filling. Its like two ply polyester. That is it! Can only wear it under something which makes it not worth the money!
Hey Denise, thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We're sorry to hear that this vest is not cutting it for your needs. The Nano Puff Vest does have 60-g of PrimaLoft Gold Insulation Eco 100% postconsumer recycled polyester with P.U.R.E. We recommend always checking out the "Specs & Features" tab on the product page to give you an idea of what to expect with a product. It sounds like you might be living and playing in cold conditions, where the Nano Puff would not suffice. We're happy to have a conversation to figure out how you were planning on using the vest to help you find a better fit for your needs. Perhaps the [Women's Bivy Hooded Vest](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-bivy-hooded-vest/27747.html?dwvar_27747_color=NESB&cgid=root) would be a better match. Feel free to reach out to us and we could carry on this conversation.
Super cute, but tight in hips
I love the colors (I purchased the beautiful wavy blue) and the overall feel of this vest--warm, but light. It fits me great in the shoulders, chest & waist, but I need another inch or two to make this comfortable around the hips. Wish I were a guy, or a woman with no hips--then I could wear this otherwise very cute vest. Sending it back.
Beautiful construction, surprisingly thin
I was hoping to replace my old puffy down vest, so was surprised by how thin this is. I don't usually buy XS, but did after following the sizing guide. It was too small in the hips, where I am usually too small, put perfect in the shoulders where I am usually too large. I had to return it, though it looks very beautiful.

Thank you for submitting this review, Barbara; we appreciate this feedback! We're sorry this vest didn't fit comfortably.

Hi Samantha! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're sorry to hear about the disappointment with the amount of warmth the vest provides. It's not the warmest vest we have to offer and it's meant to be worn with further layers in colder temperatures. We'd encourage you to check out our [Women's Down Sweater Vest](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-down-sweater-vest/84629.html?dwvar_84629_color=BLK&cgid=root) for a warmer option.
Great, classic Patagonia style
I've had one of these for a decade. Tried lots of others in an attempt to add to my wardrobe. Nothing was right, so I went back to the ideal vest and was thrilled to see it was still in the product line up! So many vests are the puffy style right now; not this one and I know it will last and look good for a long time.

This vest fits perfectly. It keeps me warm. I appreciate the woman's body fit. I love the color. It is perfect for my needs. It is sculpted enough to wear under a warmer jacket, yet it keeps my core toasty warm without. I like the trim at the shoulders helps keep breezes winds out.
Good extra layer for the core
I bought this to replace a cheap vest from a different brand. I like this one better than my old one because the Nano Puffness is not too puffy and it doesn't feel bulky. Good worn over a flannel. It's a little loose in the chest for me, but that means I can probably wear it over something thicker.
Warm - Fit is Off
The fit is a bit snug and long - A two-way zipper would help at the hips vs an interior chest pocket I will never use. The fit from a couple of years ago on jackets/coats/vests worked much better for me.

Hey Susan, thank you for the feedback. We'll share your thoughts on petite sizing with the product team. The Nano Puff Vest definitely works best in moderately cool temperatures. A good general rule of thumb is that down will be warmer than synthetic options, but it will not retain warmth when wet like synthetic insulation can.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
