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?

September 19, 2022

Fall favorite

Love the contoured fit, color and lightweight feel of the Nano Puff vest. The perfect layer when the temps fall and you need a little bit extra.

September 14, 2022

Warm for the weight.

Lightweight, packs small, comfortable fit. Good fabric, nice blue color, wears well over or under other clothes.

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.

Will not keep you dry in solid rain, but great to repel snow. Absolutely no complaints.

Perfect for Fall

Fit, color and overall look are great. Will wait till we get thru thus hot summer before I get to wear it, but I know it will work well for our late October trip to CO to hike.

September 6, 2022

Awesome vest

Love these vests. May run a little small but I like it a little roomy so I go for the medium which is the perfect size for me. I like to wear a light sweater or shirt underneath.

I love wearing this vest for morning walks and daily errands. Great for SF microclimates.

Good light/mid-weight vest, although...

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. There are just the two hand pockets. If you don't wan't an interior... Read More pocket for snacks and iPhones..., then this is a perfectly great jacket for you.

Versatile Vest

Wore this climbing early in the morning and then out to dinner. Comfortable, warm, and packs down well. As always Patagonia durable so it will last forever.

August 8, 2022


This is a great vest. Fits so well and good quality. I have it in other colors and the pink simply wasn't a good color on me. Waiting for more colors to come out. I love Patagonia products!

Perfect for work!

I love wearing vests at work and this one is great! Its super light yet warm. It keeps me very comfortable.

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.

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.

Super Versatile

I love this vest! It works with casual attire and work attire. it is cozy and yet light weight and totally classy!

May 22, 2022


I needed something lightweight for windy 60ish days when a jacket is too much but a single layer too little. This is perfect.

May 15, 2022

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.

Please let us know if we can be of any help!

May 12, 2022

A favorite

Im usually a small but this vest in S was slightly short so I waited a year til the size medium was available. Its nicer than other brands of white vests, more comfortable, more versatile. Hope the nano puff stays in production!

May 9, 2022

Amazing Vest!

The nano puff technology is like no other on the market - so a vest in this material is likewise, like no other. Vest has a nice feminine-cut fit and it is very easy to layer with. It's thinness belies its warmth and it breathes very well. I'd have one in every color if I could!

April 28, 2022

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!

April 24, 2022

Light Weight and Warm

Bought this for my wife! Its light weight and extremely warm. Very packable and easily cleaned!

April 19, 2022

My favorite vest!

I use this daily as an alternative to a sweater or jacket. I actually made the purchase because I have the nano puff longer coat an I use the vest under the coat for extra cold Virginia winter days. Its my favorite!

April 18, 2022

Beautiful but

I have this vest in black and love it but bought the white & returned it. Unfortunately, can see filling through white fabric. Maybe better in off-white something similar?

April 18, 2022

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. I was hoping to replace my grapeseed green color, and I was disappointed to see the very boring neutral color options currently available. Patagonia used to have bold and exciting colors, but now it feels like they've settled into bland options all for the sa... Read Moreke of ensuring big box stores like REI will carry their products.

April 10, 2022


This is my second Nano vest. Love it.

April 10, 2022

Cute Style

Loved the style. Runs a little small. I exchanged it for the next size up. Easy to exchange.

April 8, 2022


Extra layer, nice high collar. Just enough to ward off chills.

April 5, 2022

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.

April 4, 2022

yellow white

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.

March 30, 2022

Nice, but

I have the sweater fleece vest in L. This was too small. Returned.

March 29, 2022

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!

March 22, 2022

super lightweight and comfortable

great fit and keeps me warm being so lightweight as some vest give you that heavy feeling. love the grey color.

March 20, 2022

Perfect vest

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.

March 13, 2022

Stylish and functional

I love this vest and wear it for casual wear as well as walking. It is light weight and warm. Perfect for TX weather. I am 52 & weigh 110. I bought an XS & it fits perfectly.

March 12, 2022

Great look, right amount of warmth

This is my second Nano puff vest. Great for warmth and perfect for travel.

March 11, 2022

Love this vest!

I thought there is no way this thin vest could keep me warm- but it does. I wore as a base layer to ski and a vest to keep me warm in my home office.

March 7, 2022

Great Vest

Patagonia's best lightweight vest - comfy and stylish!

March 6, 2022

Love this vest!

This vest serves as the perfect light weight jacket. It is very comfortable and stylish. I have it in several colors. I usually take an XS but had to buy an XXS for it to fit well.

March 4, 2022

Extra warmth under my coat

I wear this vest in addition to a thermal top and heavy coat outside in very cold weather. Then I can take off the heavier coat if needed, and still feel very warm and comfortable.

March 3, 2022

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.

March 3, 2022

Super comfy

Ever since I received the vest Ive worn it almost nonstop! Great for indoors in the winter - and I love that it doesnt contain down.

March 2, 2022

Love it

The vest fits and looks great!

February 26, 2022

Comfort & Style

Love it! Comfortable and love the look!

February 22, 2022

Perfect for early spring

Perfect for staying warm and having full range of arm movement. Great for layering.

February 20, 2022

Needed to size up

I purchased with the intent for casual wear, but the extra small ended up being too small. I did go according to the size chart, however, its better to size up as it feels as if it runs a bit small.

February 19, 2022

The perfect layer

This vest is my new normal. I wear it daily indoors and out open or zipped depending on temperature control needed. I love layers, but not on my underarms. Keeps my core comfortable whether on the trail or around town.

February 18, 2022

Too long

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.

February 17, 2022

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.

February 16, 2022

just the right amount of warmth

I have several of these vests in different colors because I get so much wear out of them. I usually take an XS but the XXS fits me perfect and snug to keep me warm. Very practical item...love them!

February 14, 2022

Super warm and super thin, perfect underlayer.

I wear the vest while walking my dog. Very comfortable and warm.

February 4, 2022

Warm and comfortable

I bought this after I had purchased the Nano Puff jacket. Oh my! I love this jacket and now I love the vest. It is light weight and warm but not cumbersome. A must have in a wardrobe.

February 1, 2022


- 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!

January 31, 2022

Great vest!

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 :)

Super Comfy

Must Have

This is a must have for anyone who spends time outside. Its super versatile and can be worn year round in any climate. Very happy with this purchase!

January 22, 2022


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.

January 19, 2022

Great vest

The vest is very light and warm. I love the bright colour. I was concerned about the high collar but it came in useful when walking in a cold wind

January 16, 2022


I havent have this jacket long enough to tell how warm it is but it is very thin and I would have like something a little more fluffy. Also, I dont like the elastic around the armholes. It makes it a little cheap looking.

January 13, 2022

Love the Vest

I ordered an XS which was too small so I did an on-line exchange for a size Small. This was a very easy process from beginning to end and the size small arrived very fast.

January 13, 2022

Exactly what I was wanting.

This is an excellent layer and perfect to wear in the house when you want to keep the heating down.

NanoPuff Vest

I love this vest! I wear it as an extra layer over shirts and sweaters at home and underneath my winter jacket as an insulating layer for hiking/skiing. It's fitted and provides a ton of warmth for how thin it is. I've worn it almost every day since I received it!

January 6, 2022

comfortable and cozy

This light layer is perfect for winter days in the desert.

January 5, 2022

Perfect for my classroom - and beyond!

It is amazing. I could wear it everyday. In fact, its in my outfit queue for tomorrow. I'm a school teacher and it's exactly the layer of warmth I need in my classroom. I look professional and polished!

Bought to wear under new

Bought to wear under new waterproof jacket to add an extra layer. Normally a 12 / M , this is a snug fit but does the job!

December 7, 2021

Versatile layering piece

This vest goes everywhere and is easy to wash up after high output activities like mountain biking or ski touring in time to layer over a flannel on the way to work Monday morning.

December 5, 2021

Beautiful color

I love the teal blue color of this vest. Its not too thick and its easy to layer. I feel that it runs a little small, however, and got the medium so that I can wear it over a sweatshirt. Perfect for SoCal winter layering.

December 3, 2021

Love my nano puff!

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.

November 23, 2021

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.

A must have

Great to layer over or under other garments. Perfect to keep in my pack. Love the zip interior pocket for keeping phone/keys safe.

This is the PERFECT weight vest for literally any activity. Love it for casual wear, work wear, and even with a nicer outfit! Will definitely be purchasing in another color at some point!!

November 12, 2021

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.

Perfect Outer Layer & Cute

This is my second Nano Puff vest. After six years of a lot of wear I decided it was time for a new one. I love them. Perfect for warding off a chill in the air - inside or outside. Not binding at all, so great for even rugged hiking.

This vest is great I like the length and the slenderizing waistline. What it needs is a 2 way zipper.

This vest is warm yet lightweight. The cut is very comfortable and feminine.

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. Room for keys, phone, license, dog treats, poo bags and even a sneaky pocket for an emergency $20. It's basically a wearable diaper bag for dogs. My jacket gets a workout and stands ...

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.

Really nice

The vest runs small. I am usually wear small tops but small in this vest is way too tight. Medium fits just right. The vest itself is very warm and looks great, just order one size bigger.

Great Company! Great vest!

This is a great company that makes great products, and they care about the planet! This vest is the perfect weight for many uses, I wind up wearing it all the time. Only wish it had a double zipper on it, up and down adjustments. CG

Beautiful Color

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.

Perfect Fit & Great Quality

The vest fits perfect and nice and light weight, not bulky and great quality. I plan to buy another color.

Warm but breathable, lightweight and effective.

Well Done Patagonia

Love it, it's flattering and gives me the right amount of warmth. The collar is not as thick as their other vests and doesn't irrigate my chin.

Light as a cloud

This is not the first nano-puff garment I have purchased. l love wearing them as they are so light you hardly know you have them on, yet warm without overheating.

Beautiful vest

I wanted this vest to fit so badly. I love the color and the weight but it was too long and too tight on my short waisted body, I am 52 and weigh about 128lb. I returned it but am looking for another cute but comfy vest. I have other Patagonia jackets that fit fine.

Love my vest

My new vest fits just right, is a vibrant burgundy red and is warm & cozy

Lacks Filling

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). I recently picked up an XS and it's a little snug, but works perfectly as a layering piece over a tight long sleeve and/or under a jacket. It does a great job helping to keep my core warm, ...

Love the whole Nano line!

I love the Nano line, and the jacket is my go-to. I just got the best and adore it, used it on a backpacking trip and for fishing. Super warm, packable, and cute! I love the vibrant color, too.

Light but Still Warm

The Patagonia nano puff vest is excellent. Light enough that you dont feel overwhelmed by fabric but still so warm. The color is great - I bought it in the summer so that Im ready for action come fall and winter!

July 24, 2021

Love the clothes not the fit

I love all things Patagonia but the fit is usually off for me. In order to get the proper fit on top, the length is too long. Patagonia doesnt seem to take into consideration that women have curves.

Nano vest

I love the versatility of this vest. Lightweight, easy to pack, and excellent temperature control. I use it to do just about everything. Thank you Patagonia for being such a customer service oriented company and most importantly socially conscience

Everything Great

Great quality and service

July 5, 2021

Perfect vest!

I would recommend getting a larger size so you can fit a hoodie or bigger sweater under it and have enough room! But other than that it's perfect!

June 21, 2021

perfect layer

Great layer for late night adventures that keep us well past the sunlight. Adds the perfect amount of warmth to keep on truckin'.

Better Descriptions Needed

Hey Patagonia please list the chest measurements on all shirts and weather or not the fabric has stretch. 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. The vest is longer than my frame needs. I wish American sizes were based on actual measurements. I think that would make things more inclusive. I am a curvy woman and I like this vest for layering.

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.

Nice light weight vest

First off, the blue is gorgeous. It really is stunning. The vest is lightweight but keeps you warm. Definitely lighter weight than the down sweaters.

May 17, 2021

Need petite sizes

I absolutely loved the vest but unfortunately had to return it since it was too long. It would be nice if Patagonia would make their items in petite sizes.

May 10, 2021

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.

May 5, 2021

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! Its perfect. Great to layer and keep toasty in the cold, or to toss over a long sleeve on those its spring but not that warm days. Great packability for ca... Read Moremping as well. Glad I made the investment.

Light weight warmth

This vest is perfect for Michigan weather. So light weight but just the right about of warm for a chilly morning or evening. Easy to pack for a week-end away.

Light weight but cozy warm -

Perfect fit, light but cozy & warm. Great color. Leaving hints for the family to buy me same vest in blue....Mother's Day ???

Great layer under ski shell

This is a great layer under a ski shell. I ordered a small and is a little big in the chest area. Im a 34A and there is plenty of room for anyone who is a B or C. Like how light it is and definitely keeps me warm on the slopes.

May 2, 2021

Love it

I just love the Nano puff vest. Its that little extra layer of warmth that I need not to mention love the extra pockets.

Granola Gran

Zippered inside breast pocket big enough for your phone! Yes! Thank you. Zippered side pockets big enough for hands, YES! High zippered collar is perfect for windy mornings. Love this vest

Awesome vest!!!

I love this vest. It fits great , it looks great, and I love the color. Perfect weight for me. Its the 4th Nano puff vest I own. Every one should have at least one.

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!

April 25, 2021

Replaced my very old REI vest of similar color, turquoise. Wanted a light and versatile vest. It is all I wanted. Thanks!

Disappointed in product

I have the same Nano Vest in black I purchased a few years ago and because it was a great product I decided to get a new one in a different color.

Quality in so many ways!

From the ease of ordering, the communication on delivery, the speed of delivery, to receiving my nano puff vest, the experience was quality! It is so light, so warm and the size fits me perfectly. Thank you Patagonia so refreshing to receive such great service from beginning to end.

Love this vest!

I wear this vest daily! It suits so many variables and is super lightweight and warm. I can wear it over different tops and under my shell when needed. It's really perfect for so many situations.
