    Built for the up and the down.

    When your day is going to consist of as much up as down, you need something special to keep you warm and comfortable for the long haul. Conveniently, that special something comes in the form of the Patagonia Men's Nano-Air Insulated Hooded Jacket. The combination of a nylon ripstop shell and plain weave nylon lining offers excellent breathability, so you don't overheat when you're hiking, climbing, or skiing, and the FullRange synthetic insulation stretches with you to provide generous freedom of movement whether you're reaching through the crux move or reaching for a tail clip as you rip skins on a windy ridge.

    The DWR treatment on the outer face helps to shed light moisture, and its windproof construction cuts wind on the way down, too. In order to help combat the elements, Patagonia added storm flaps to the front zippers and a zipper garage at the top, so you're not taking a cold metal zipper to the chin every time you move your head from side to side. Stretch material around the cuffs helps to make a seal to fight off even more winter chill, while zippered handwarmer pockets let you warm up your digits when things head into those frigid temps. The hood is designed to be worn under a helmet for next-to-skin warmth, but it can also be worn over a low-profile helmet thanks to its stretchy nature.

    • Protective insulation for start-and-stop missions in the mountains
    • FullRange stretch insulation maintains warmth when wet
    • Light and tough 4-way stretch shell with water-resistant finish
    • Nano Puff brick quilting along sides enhances durability
    • Stretch hood fits close against the noggin and will fit over helmets
    • Stretch binding at cuffs and drawstring at hem locks in body heat
    • Regular fit allows piece to be worn both over and under layers
    • Patagonia has been building gear for the high mountains since 1973
    • Item #PAT00EO

    The ultimate jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    I had to purchase this jacket after having my Patagonia Down Sweater stolen. I knew I was going a little bit lighter on the jacket weight but I've been beyond stoked with this jacket. I tend to have a warm body temperature, especially when I'm active but this jacket stays with me always. I'm a photographer so being able to pack it into my photography backpack is incredibly useful. It packs just small enough to always be there, even when it isn't absolutely needed. Occasionally I will put a shell over it, especially in wind but that's most often when I'm stationary for an extended amount of time. I realized recently that it was getting really dirty and was a little disappointed. After washing it I was blown away, it looks and feels like new. This is my backpacking, camping, hiking and charging around town everything sweater. When I'm in a little colder climates and seasons I need something a bit bigger but 80% of the time I'm beyond stoked. It's lightweight but warm, durable and never seems to fail.

    • Size Bought: XL

    This coat can do many things. It is warm as a midlayer or stand alone. It breathes
    very well under my shell and with the hood under my helmet it keeps me toasty warm on cold days on my bike or on the snow. I bought an XL to have room to layer under it if needed and it has worked out well. I don't like really tight fitting clothes.

    Awesome Jacket

    This jacket is lightweight and warm, and the fit/cut is great. Can't beat Patagonia!

    Double check your jacket for defect

      Bought this jacket about 4 months ago,wore it about 3 times for about an hour each time. Pack this jacket for a trip to Vegas and when packing found a small hole under the arm sleeve of the jacket. I contacted Backcountry about this defect and still not resolved and heard from them. I understand Patagonia has a lifetime warranty. Don’t know how true or trustworthy it is. Maybe my last time buying from them.

      Patagonia and Backcountry have great warranty services. Patagonia is for LIFE and Backcountry has returns within 30 days. After 30 go to the manufacturer. You won't have a problem

      Patagonia has an amazing warranty. Basically for life!

      Patagonia hit a home run with this jacket. I had to buy another one in a different color. Its soft and the stretch fabric is amazing, especially if your moving a lot. It s my go to jacket when its cold. Its great by its self or as a layer.

      Great Jacket

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 175lbs

      Comfy and warm. Wind resistant.
      I have been a Nano Puff fan and am now converted to the Nano Air.
      It's not as noisy as the baffled jackets.
      My size is normally between a Med and Lg ( 5'10" 175) and the Lg fit me perfectly.
      Plus it's a Patagonia, a company trying live up to it's high environmental and ethical standards.

      10/10 Jacket!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XL
      • Height: 6'1"
      • Weight: 180lbs

      What can I say that hasnt been said? This jacket is burly enough to wear outside, and comfortable enough to wear inside. Purchased as a mid layer for ski touring but now I where it everywhere. May get a second one just for touring!

      Best Jacket Ever Made??

      This is a solid 10/10 for me. Check out my review below for an in depth look at this incredible piece.

      Staying warm at the Matterhorn

      The Nano Air worked great on a hike with variable conditions (sun/clouds/calm/windy) below the base of the Matterhorn. September 2015

      Working strong in wintery conditions

      Near the summit of the Breithorn in Zermatt, Switzerland during pretty wintery conditions in early September 2015. Once the wind picked up I used a Nano Puff jacket on top for some extra warmth.

      Patagonia Men's Nano-Air Hoody

      In this video I talk about some of my first impressions of the Patagonia Nano-Air Hoody. I have a size small in Tumble Green. I find the fit to be true to size charts. A great warm jacket that is a definate performance item in my bag. Even more so with winter bikeing.

      Are you happy you went with the hoody version? I am trying to decide between hoody and non hoody versions.

      I really like the hoody version as I use it for winter bike riding. But if you have a hooded soft shell for over the Nano-Air I would get the regular jacket.

      An update as well, this jacket shows dirt and grim very well. I am questioning my color choice.

      Ok this or the nano puff hood which is gonna be warmer and more durable

      Where is the patagonia's xs size
      Here's s size are patagonia's xs size??

      Hey Jeong - Patagonia does make the Nano-Air Insulated Hooded Jacket in an XS, but we do not have any in stock and none on order. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions.

      I plan on getting something for New England winter hikes. I was thinking either this or the dual aspect. Ultra lite backpacking. Nothing bigger yet. Could anyone give me a recommendation? Not many reviews for the dual aspect, but the ones for the nano air sound good and up my alley given that when I get any exercise I turn into a furnace. Thank you!


      Both pieces are pretty cool for sure. I'd say your priority should be to get a Nano Air, you'll love it and wear it a ton. Dual Aspect is great, but a little more of a specialized piece. Not as warm as the Nano Air, but offers a little more wind protection with that gridded soft shell.

      Im 6'2" and 160 lbs on a good day and want to know what size i need, will the large be too big? Or do i need the large for the length?

      Hey Connor,

      I would recommend you go with the Large in the Nano Air, specifically for the extra arm length. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions.

      Kyle L. - Expert Gearhead

      hello, what size do you recommend ? I'm 5'5 " and 127 lbs . s or xs ? thanks a lot

      My nano puff pullover is s ( perfect size)

      Can anybody comment on whether or not they've experienced any durability issues? I have read elsewhere that the back/shoulders area can pill/tear easily, which would be problematic as I would mostly be using this jacket backpacking and climbing.

      Best Answer


      The Nano Air is definitely a balance of being breathable and lightweight, while still as durable as we can make it. If you're carrying a heavy backpacking pack for hours, this might not be there best choice honestly. And if you're wearing a big pack, you wouldn't be getting the full benefits of the jacket. Nano Air is designed for light and fast endeavors, and is a great layering piece under a shell. So for climbing, thumbs up for sure. I'd lean towards a regular Nano Puff and an R1 hoody for true backpacking endeavors.

      Hello: I have a question regarding sizing for the Nano Air hoody. I am 5'8", 160 lbs, 40 inch chest, 33" arms, slender frame. Would the small or medium be a better fit? I like a slim cut and I don't plan on wearing a thick baselayer, so I was thinking of a small, but would not want any constriction around the chest. My hesitation with a medium size is that the arms or torso may be too long. I usually wear a medium jacket, though. Thanks!

      I think a small would be worth a shot. Definitely comes down to personal preference, but I think since you're looking for a slimmer cut you'll be comfortable in the smaller size with the stretch that the jacket provides.

      Haven't purchased yet, but tried both small and medium in a store. Me : 39" chest, 5'9", 150lbs, and the small was binding in the shoulders. Going for a medium

      Unanswered Question

      Do you know when you will be getting more of the feather grey in medium?

      are there any M size coming in soon ??


      We have a purchase order on the way. The inventory will be seen on the site very shortly i would keep checking a few times a day so you can get your hands on some mediums as soon as we put them on the site for purchase.

      How do they compare against OR - Halogen Jacket (Outside 2014 Gear of the Year award).

      I am split between these two. Need a synthetic jacket for Mountaineering and Climbing

      Appreciate any suggestions


      The halogen jacket has select panels that offer stretch and breathability, while the Nano Air is stretchy and breathable across the entire garment, both the shell and insulation.

      It will come down to the rest of your system and your personal preferences. On it's own, this jacket will provide more protection than the nano air provided you don't run too hot. Personally, I find that having very breathable side panels really cuts down on my ability to keep my core warm when I stop moving (even with a shell on top). If you are going to carry a shell as well, I'd go for the nano just for that ability to keep warm. If you aren't carrying a shell the OR would be a safer bet.

      Is backcountry going to get any of these in XL?

      Best Answer

      We have a whole bunch of these jackets on order! There are some XLs included in that.

      Should I get this version or the nonhooded version? I doubt I would use the hood very much but don't want to miss out if it is something people are liking alot.

      tough call for sure! The hood is sweet to have for sure, but might get in the way if you're wearing it as a mid layer quite a bit, in which case the non-hooded might be a little more comfortable. Can't go wrong either way really...

      How does this compare to the Westcomb Tango (or Polartec Alpha in general)? I'm looking for info on warmth and breathability, but any insight would be helpful. Thanks!

      Best Answer

      The Nano Air really stands in a league of it's own, and is going to breathe much better than any polartec alpha piece. It's also going to have better stretch throughout the entire jacket, as both the Full Range insulation and the nylon shell fabric stretch.

      I am looking for an all around winter jacket for Vermont (think cold, wet, and windy), that will also work for cold weather belaying and ski touring. Hoping to pair the jacket with an R1 for when it gets really rough outside. I am thinking either the Patagonia Nano-Air Hoody or the DAS parka. Any recommendations?

      The Nano Air is a great mid layer for touring or other high output activities. It is crazy breathable, so using it for an all around winter jacket in Vermont won't be ideal. Since it is so breathable it does not block much wind.

      The DAS Parka sounds like it would be the best bet for you. The Nano Air is actually closer to your R1 since it's stretchy and breathable. And the DAS is one of the warmest jackets patagonia makes, and it designed as a belay parka.

      I'm 5'11" and weigh about 165 lbs. what size would I be for the hoody?

      Hey Zachary,

      The medium should fit really well. I'm 5'10 and the same weight and love the fit. However, I would do a chest and sleeve measurement as well as that is a great indicator for fit. The medium is for a chest size of 39-41 in and sleeve length of 34 in. If you have any more questions about this piece or any other gear, please give me a call at 1-800-409-4502 ext 4446 or email at

      I'm about the same height/weight and went with a Large because Patagonia jackets usually run a little short in the waist. Arms are a little long, but not obnoxiously so, or long enough that I'd consider exchanging it for a medium. Haven't had a chance or need to use it under a shell to test breathability/warmth, but it fits fine underneath the couple shells I tried it on under. It fits almost identically to the one the guy in the video is wearing.

      How windproof is it? This is the critical component of any layer used for the realm of the steep.

      Best Answer


      The Nano Air is designed more for breathability than wind protection, and hence isn't very windproof. It does well paired with a lightweight shell like an Alpine Houdini or Super Cell. If you want an insulating layer that will be windproof on it's own the regular Nano Puff is a better choice.

      Not very, but if you pair it with a truly breathable shell (like a NeoShell), you get the best of both worlds.
