Don't leave home without this piece of clothing no matter what month of the year $249.00
If there is one piece of clothing you need in your bag, it’s the Patagonia Nano Puffer Jacket. This jacket compresses down super small and fits into luggage without being noticed. Add to the size, its many uses and you have a winner. Many mornings I wake up in a 65 degree room and put on my shorts, t-shirt and my nano hoodie jacket. Also what happens in the summer if you fly to Canada and a cold front moves in? This piece of clothing is also a liner for the Patagonia rain jacket reviewed earlier. This way you get a winter cold jacket puffer compressed and a rain jacket that slides in your front pocket of your luggage barely noticeable.
NOTE: This is a slimmer fit. If you do have a rounder build in the torso area, make sure to buy the next size up. I purchased a medium and I have a medium build and it fits even slim for myself. If you are a slender build, this should fit you perfect. Plus it aint cheap at $249.00 but once again you get a LIFETIME WARRANTY with Patagonia products, not too shabby. And they do stand behind their products like no other manufacturer.
All in all the ability to turn this into a layering masterpiece makes this a bullet proof choice. The key to this product is it’s functionality. Alone its a nice warm jacket for all seasons. Used as a liner for the Patagonia Torrentshell Rain Jacket, it protects you from the elements and essentially functions as a $500 winter jacket if needed. This is the product you cannot leave home without. I carry both the Nano Hoodie and the Torrentshell Jacket in my luggage every day I travel albeit n the winter, summer, vacation or for work. Trading out my North Face Denali 2 Hoodie, I gained space in my bag and now have a full on lined set. This was impossible due to the bulk of the North Face Denali Hoodie or the basic Denali Jacket (fleece is too bulky). For the record I have worn the Denali (fleece jacket) for over 20 years and have no plans on changing out this product. However, the product is more suited to times when I have additional packing space for travel. As a crewmember I always take into account using only a carry on bag no matter what trip I take.
