The Nano-Air Hoody was made to be worn for the entirety of your aerobic, start-stop alpine missions, so you’re never slowed down by changing layers. Warm, stretchy and breathable FullRange insulation dumps excess heat when you’re working hard and keeps you warm when you’re not. Now built with significant recycled content in the shell, liner and insulation, the Nano-Air sets another new standard for technical insulation. 

Patagonia says

Approach, climb, belay, repeat until the post-climb beer—all in the Nano-Air® Hoody, a warm, stretchy, breathable layer you can put on and leave on through high-output, stop-and-go activities in cold weather. Even better, we’ve upped the recycled material content throughout the Nano-Air, from the lightweight, weather-shedding shell, to the comfortable plain-weave liner, to our warm-when-wet FullRange™ insulation—all with zero sacrifice in performance. It’s a new standard for technical insulation, merging the comfort and breathability of open fleece with the protection and warmth of a puffy while using recycled inputs to the greatest possible degree.

The woven textured yarn face fabric is soft and durable, and better resists pilling than the original. Full mechanical stretch creates a close, sculpted fit over baselayers and an uninhibited range of motion. The trim, stretchy hood is designed for next-to-noggin use, though it’ll still fit snugly over low-profile helmets. Two above-harness handwarmer pockets and two chest pockets all close with trim, low-bulk zippers. The center-front zipper has a zipper garage for comfort on your chin. The Variable Conditions Cuffs have sleek, stretch-knit insets that allow you to easily push up your sleeves. A dual-adjustable drawcord hem seals in warmth. When the belay goes from chilly to downright cold, pull on a lightweight shell and feel the Nano-Air’s thermal properties skyrocket.

Our Verdict

Patagonia's Nano-Air Hoody takes a featherweight fabric and midweight 60g/m2 Insulation Type and makes a jacket that provides an instant big hit of warmth in a superlight and very packable package. As always with Patagonia gear there's a very high quality finish to this garment. You get two hand-warmer pockets and a chest pocket, these make the jacket a bit more useful as a standalone piece but we think it would thrive as a beefy, winter midlayer.

In order to keep the weight down, there's no adjustment to the hem or cuffs, but these both have some elastication. This will do an OK job at keeping the warm air inside the jacket but could be improved in future iterations of this jacket.
