For a lighter, warmer, less expensive, more weather resistant jacket, check out the Editors' Choice award-winning Rab Xenon X. This model has a lightweight Pertex shell that offers greater wind protection than the Nano Puff Hoody's quilted design. The Patagonia Nano Puff Hoody received middle of the road scores in all performance rating metrics. Patagonia has stuck with their classic, generalist design for this model, while introducing the Patagonia Nano Air Hoody for high energy activities, where breathability is key. The Nano Puff compresses very small into its chest pocket and remains an excellent and classic choice for clipping to your harness or carrying while backpacking and hiking.
Patagonia Nano Puff Jacket has no hood and is a little lighter and less expensive. Without the hood, it's easier to layer under other hooded jackets. For example, it much easier to wear under a ski jacket. It also just looks better around town. Both models are classics although the hoodless version is probably the best selling insulated jacket of all time.
