Patagonia Women's Nano Puff Vest.
Windproof, warm, lightweight and very compressible, the Nano Puff® Vest is ideal insulation under a shell. Made with 60-g PrimaLoft® ONE insulation, it also doubles as a stand-alone wind barrier in warmer conditions. Chilly mornings in base camp, simulclimbing by headlamp and cragging in the South Platte as snow falls all give the Nano Puff® Vest its raison d'être. Worn as an outer or midlayer, the vest uses PrimaLoft® ONE (60-g) insulation for superb compressibility, featherlight weight and surprising warmth. All of this is wrapped in a windproof and moisture-shedding 100% recycled polyester ripstop shell with a Deluge® DWR (durable water repellent) finish. This season we’ve improved the fit with better shaping through the torso and waist, and added a soft, wicking interior storm flap and zipper garage for chin comfort. We also moved our women’s style into our classic Nano Puff "brick" quilt pattern, added narrow horizontal quilt lines on the side panels, and used a burly thread for enhanced durability. Other fine points include a drawcord hem, two zippered handwarmer pockets and an internal chest pocket (with clip-in loop) which doubles as a stuffsack. Lightweight ripstop recycled polyester shell fabric has a Deluge® DWR finish. Lightweight 60-g PrimaLoft® One insulation provides excellent warmth and compressibility. Brick quilting pattern with narrow horizontal quilt lines on side panels uses durable thread for improved abrasion-resistance. Center-front zipper has wicking interior storm flap and zipper garage at chin for next-to-skin comfort. Two zippered handwarmer pockets have clean finished zipper garages; zippered internal chest pocket doubles as a self-stuff sack with a reinforced carabiner clip-in loop. Drawcord-adjustable drop tail hem seals out wind. Fabric: Shell and Lining: 1.4-oz 22-denier 100% recycled polyester with a Deluge® DWR (durable water repellent) finish. Insulation: 60-g PrimaLoft® ONE 100% polyester. Weight: 210 g (7.4 oz).
The Patagonia Women’s Nano Puff Vest is a lightweight vest for chilly trail adventures. Packed inside the Nano Puff is 60g of PrimaLoft ONE to keep your core warm during your latest trail hike. The outer fabric is recycled polyester ripstop, which is windproof and has a durable water repellent to resist a little sprinkle or even a mild snow flurry. The bricked pattern combined with a form fit looks sharp over your favorite long sleeve. This vest can even stuff into the chest pocket, just in case you want to clip it to your belt for later use.
As summer heat starts to wane, outdoor adventures remain plentiful. On its own or under a shell, the Patagonia Women's Nano Puff Insulated Vest provides lightweight, compressible, and windproof insulation for your fall follies. The physical structure of PrimaLoft One insulation mimics the structure of feathers, trapping warm air as it leaves your body and creating a thermal barrier between surrounding cooler air and your body. Likewise, the warmth-to-weight ratio for PrimaLoft One is similar to down in that it offers substantive warmth without substantive weight. However, unlike down, PrimaLoft One only loses 4% of its insulating capacity when wet, which makes this vest an ideal choice when moisture may be factor.
Along the insulation spectrum of Patagonia's puffy vests, the Nano Puff flirts with the low end in terms of warmth. When worn alone, this vest keeps your core toasty during an early October football game or when you're cragging or simply walking between classes as leaves begin to fall. While the Deluge DWR treatment handles light drizzle, you should throw a shell over the Nano Puff vest when nasty storms and winds howl the entrance of cooler days. A zipper garage protects your chin from chafing, and the brick quilting pattern prevents the insulation from settling and creating cold zones on your body. The chest pocket doubles as a self-stuff sack so you can easy store the Puff in your tote bag or daypack.
The Patagonia Nano Puff Vest for Women is the ideal solution to chilly mornings as an outer or midlayer because of its’ lightweight PrimaLoft ONE (60-g) insulation. The vest has a windproof and moisture-shedding, 100% recycled polyester ripstop exterior shell and DWR (durable water repellent) finish to ensure staying dry during unpredictable weather. This item has been updated this season to have an improved, shaping fit and an additional wicking interior storm flap and chin support with a zipper garage. To enhance durability, the Nano Puff also added narrow horizontal quilt lines. Other functions include a drawcord hem, two handwarmer pockets with zippers, and an internal chest pock/stuffsack.

This is such a nice vest! Best used for leisure wear, layering, snowshoeing/hiking on warmer days..etc.
It's an 'insulated' vest but it's a very light one. (Only 60g insulation)
I have the Blue Butterfly color-- which actually has a hint of purple to it (in certain lighting) I was expecting a more bright blue color, but the occasional purple that comes out is actually pretty nice. The interior is also a bright teal which I love!
The vest has two hand pockets, and one internal chest pocket. The arm holes have a little elasticity to them for a snug fit (but not too snug)
I'm about 5'3''- a little on the petite side and my usual size for shirts/jackets etc. is a size small- which I got in this vest and it's a perfect fit!
