Anyone have this or know about the product? Anyone have any discount codes? This looks like a great piece. I am wondering about the fit on it. 6' 170, 31" waist, 15.5 neck, just about 41-42" chest - not sure of how baggy this is? I prefer athletic cuts.
Patagonia Hybrid Nano Jacket fit
thanks! Yeah, I finally found that. much appreciated. I also have the R1's and large fit just right; I ordered the L. as a new product, I really like the combo of the Nano and the R2. I like how only the upper back has the nano. I am hoping this works as well as promised and as reviewed.
The picture on their website shows the nano material front and back, less of it in back than in front.

Just and update on this piece. I ordered the large and it fit perfectly. 6' 170, 41.5" chest. Like Scot said its not a true form fitting piece but its not like some of their other boxy cuts either. I think they pretty much got it right. Not too loose, not contsrictive at all. This is a layering piece for sure. You could wear is as a jacket in spring or fall but the design is such that it really works better as a layering piece. I have not skied in it yet however here's my thoughts
well constructed, all seams matched, reinforced cuff's, very well thought through design with just the Nano in areas that don't retain heat as well or are most exposed to cold/wind/cooling. R2 fleece is very nice; soft hand, not too fuzzy. love that this is a full zip piece.
Colors: there something for everyone.... ok, so they are a little on the "bright" side. but you can always wimp out and go all black. Hey. its a layering piece, I got the sesame street orange......
very light weight. this thing is super light and compresses well. It won't pack down like a down shirt but it will easily compress in your pack.
They also did a great job on the collar. its about chin high and lined with a micro fabric that is soft against your neck. the zipper lays flat.
Sleeves are cut perfectly, again, not too tight, not too baggy; another sign of the great design. Putting on a shell, the sleeves don't bunch or catch. length is slightly long; but that's what you want. The cut is perfect at the shoulder allowing just a little extra for movement.
Zipper is smooth and works well. It may seem trivial but I have had plenty of jackets with zippers that are a pain in the butt. this one works well.
Length is also great; most are too short, this drops just below hips (depending on your body dims of course)
the material placement is what makes this a unique workhorse. Take a look at the pics above. The R2 is highly breathable and permits good air flow in high output activities. This is not really a jacket to stand around in. My biggest problem with insulating layers is that they tend to hold too much heat in sleeves and back. The Hybrid addresses just these issues. The placement of the Nano material in the upper chest permits you to either zip up your shell in cold days and keep your chest warm or vent out and dump the heat. but allow good air flow around those areas that overheat and allow moisture build up.
I will update next week with an on the snow report. Right now I have high expectations and give it all 4 Finn Paws.
