When looking for a great mid layer, the Patagonia Nano Puff came highly recommended, and though I was a bit shy about spending 149.00 on a mid layer, I decided to take the plunge and buy one.  I tend to get a Medium when I buy tops for skiing, but since this is a mid layer that I need to fit under a shell I decided to go with a more fitter size and got the Small.  Being a pullover, it can be a bit of a challenge to get on and off, and it seems a bit short waisted, especially in the small size, but once its on, the fit and feel is comfy enough that you almost forget that you're wearing a mid layer.  

When compared to a down or R3Fleece, the Nano Puff is moderately warm, but seems to be the ideal warmth for the active person who wants to stay cozy without getting overheated, and the one pocket on the left breast is deep enough and positioned well to store your iPod or phone without adding bulk to the overall ensemble.


I must admit, that I like the fit, feel and warmth of my Patagnonia Nano Puff Pullover so much that I bought two more in different colors and find myself wearing them more than most anything else in my closet.

A great compliment to any layering combination!

2012 Patagonia Women's Nano Puff Pullover

Minimalist, sleek and surprisingly warm, the heat-trapping Nano Puff® Pullover blocks wind, sheds snow and uses the best available synthetic insulation. A deep-venting half-zip avoids harness-line bulk and minimizes weight, and the 100% recycled polyester ripstop shell glides effortlessly, whether worn as an outer or midlayer. It's weather-resistant and windproof enough to wear as an insulated shell in a gusty snowstorm, trim enough to pull on for chilly rock pitches (and still see your footholds), and warm enough for light belay parka duty on quick alpine dashes. Low-bulk, hydrophobic, highly compressible PrimaLoft® One (60-g) insulation traps heat with remarkable efficiency, even when wet. The Nano packs down to practically nothing and stuffs into a single chest pocket that has a carabiner clip-in loop. Elasticized cuffs and hem seal out wind and trap warmth.
