The Patagonia Nano Air Hoody is a lightweight synthetic insulation piece for cold weather. Designed to keep you warm when stopped but it breathable enough so that you don't have to stop to take it off when your working hard. This makes it perfect for rock/alpine climbing and ski touring.
The outer is a light but durable ripstop nylon which offers a four way mechanical stretch and has excellent breathability. The DWR finish to the outer ensures that snow and moisture are easily repelled. The insulation is Patagonia's own synthetic FullRange, which provides an excellent level of warmth but is also incredibly breathable and stretchy.
The Nano brick style quilting on the sides of the torso keeps the insulation in place whilst also providing a good shape and fit to the jacket. The main zip has a internal wicking storm flap and features a chin guard for added wearer comfort. The hood and cuffs are all stretchy so they stay in place and are easy to pull on and off. The pocket configuration leaves plenty of storage space with two zipped chest pockets and two zipped hand warmer pockets, all of which are low bulk so they won't interfere with a harness or pack strap. To assist in keeping the weather out and warmth in there is a dual-adjust drawcord on the hem.

Customer Reviews of Patagonia Nano Air Hoody (Winter 18)
I bought this jacket for a range of activities including hill walking in the UK, hiking and ski touring in in Switzerland and trekking in the Himalaya. So far I have used it for a 3 week trek in Nepal where I experienced a wide range of conditions from warm sub tropical valleys to sub zero passes over 5,000m.
The best thing about this jacket is that it just feels so soft and comfortable that you will not want to take it off. The jacket fits perfectly and the hood fits snugly. I really appreciated the hand pockets to keep my hands warm as I don't ware gloves unless it is really freezing.
I wore it on chilly evenings at the tea houses and even slept in it inside my sleeping bag on the very coldest nights. It is stretchy and allows good freedom of movement. During the daytime it kept me warm whilst ambling slowly in cold windy conditions yet I didn't overheat when hiking briskly up steep mountain trails. This really is the perfect mid layer.
I bought this jacket for big winter walks around the south west, although I use it a lot day to day. I like how warm and light this jacket it, its about the same as a down but it holds up a lot better when it's a bit wet and you don't have to worry about ruining the insulation when it is. I've found it's really good in different temperatures, it keeps you warm but you're not forever taking it on and off and the lining is much nicer than other jackets that can feel a bit like wearing a plastic bag, especially when you get hot! I love this jacket and it also looks really good in legend green, my order was processed really quickly and arrived ahead of schedule too!
