I was looking for a low profile synthetic vest. I checked out TNF Red Point which I deemed too warm and the REI equivalent that I thought was nice, but with the Backcountry sale, the Nano was less expensive that the others. It was also the one I wanted. Factoring in the better Primaloft, Patagonia's reputation for quality and environmental concern, the Patagonia is probably nearly worth its full out retail price.
The Nano is not as warm as the other two. I chose it because it completes my set of under layers for winter activity. It is now 50 to 60 *F in Southern NE at night. It is a great season to have this piece. I will use it when hiking and riding this fall. It packs down very small so it would be easy to stow and it is quite light. I'll use it on the first few cold miles of a fall road bike ride and I'll have it in my pack when hiking for when the sun starts to fall. I also expect to wear this as a layer skiing and then to dinner after a day on the slopes, and, of course, around town. I never could wear the Red Point inside, even in a cold barn/tavern in northern VT.
I would have appreciated a nice strip of fleece in the the pockets and on the inside of the collar. The Nano is somewhat shorter collar to tail than the others by say an inch. I don't think it is too short, but if you want to really cover some backside, you should know.
No surprise, I guess, after how much I have enjoyed my Nano Puff Pullover, that this has become my most-used piece of insulation. I bought it in black, so it goes with everything. I wear it daily with a t-shirt and shorts as a casual piece, and will probably keep it that way, using my MH Zonal Vest for hiking and my mont-bell Ex Light Vest for backpacking. I love vests, so if my tax refund comes in, I may even look at an Arc'teryx Atom LT Vest as well for casual and hiking wear. No, I don't need all those vests, but hey...
picked one up on SAC for $70 (they actually sold the R1 fleece and then the nano puff vest almost back to back). I got this after getting the nano puff jacket last year. Both the jacket and the vest are extremely warm without the bulk. Minimal michelin man look, but very warm, almost surprisingly so given the jacket and vest don't look like they have alot of fill. Both pack into themselves super small for easy packing.
Would be very careful not to get it wet.
