The bigger, warmer brother of the esteemed Micro Puff, the Macro Puff is built for colder, more extreme conditions, designed to keep you warm and your pack weight low for missions into the most frigid environments. With double the amount of insulation of the Micro Puff yet an associated weight gain of just 148 grams, this is a class-leading coat for warmth-to-weight ratio.

Patagonia says

A notch up on the thermometer from its Micro Puff® cousin, the Macro Puff™ Hoody delivers even more high-loft, water-resistant warmth with PlumaFill insulation, a revolutionary, down-like alternative with all the benefits of a synthetic. Fair Trade Certified™ sewn.

Our Verdict

Patagonia's Patagonia’s Macro Puff Insulated Jacket is the ideal synthetically-insulated layer for alpine objectives and treks where warmth-to-weight and durability are prime concerns. With 135g/sqm of premium PlumaFill insulation at a featherweight 418 grams for a Medium, this is a truly warm yet truly lightweight jacket, with very few competitors offering anything close to this level of warmth without a hefty weight penalty. The PlumaFill insulation itself is designed to mimic the properties of down, and as such it is phenomenally packable, while also maintaining its warmth when wet.

The strength of the Macro Puff is in its versatility – it functions excellently as both an outer layer and also as a mid-layer under a hardshell. For one jacket for mixed conditions in the winter months, the Macro has quickly become a go-to piece, as it is comfortable and warm in every locale. For such a lightweight jacket, it has a surprising array of features – internal drop pockets for larger items, handwarmer pockets for chilly digits, and plenty of adjustment at hem and hood to keep you snug and wind out. The fit is slightly boxy and long in the arm – I’d recommend your normal Patagonia size; no need to size up for use as an outer layer.
