Why We Like The Micro Puff Hooded Insulated Jacket

Before anything else, we slide the Patagonia Micro Puff Hooded Insulated Jacket over our baselayer at the snowshoeing trailhead. So when the storm clouds roll in and snow starts to dump, we can just zip up a waterproof shell over it and comfortably watch the world turn snowy white.

  • Warm, windproof jacket for chilly climbing or backcountry days
  • Water-repellent Pertex Quantum sheds light precipitation
  • PlumaFill insulation mimics down for lightweight warmth
  • Regular fit offers room for baselayers
  • Elasticized cuffs and hem seal in warmth
  • Multiple pockets stash snacks, maps, and your phone

Fantastic jacket

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

This jacket is extremely light and yet it is very warm and blocks the wind really great. With a base layer and another light shirt I can wear this jacket in 2C temperatures and I'm still sweating while power walking in a brisk wind. This is very comfortable to wear and it's close to the body (178# Medium). The end of the sleeves have a really nice feature that keeps the wind from blowing up the sleeves. It's a stretchy material that fits to my wrist nicely.

Awesome, Lightweight Jacket

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XS

Bought this jacket as a gift for my husband and he loves it! Sizing is great - weight and insulation are exactly what he was looking for. Perfect for staying warm when running around town in cold weather or for going on a hike in late-fall/early-spring.

great alternative to heavier down jacket

Lots of praise for the micro puff has been given already. despite the super light weight and small compressed size, it's surprisingly warm. I was fine with a base layer and micropuff in 14 degree temps. the minimalistic design with elastic on hood and cuffs is lightweight and fits great. one must be careful to not damage the thin exterior fabric. I wore an over jacket when hauling wood at camp. lightweight down jackets are great, but this is so light weight and easier to launder - highly recommend

Great lightweight jacket

Nice for hiking and any other outdoors activity... It small and light when you need to pack it and big in warmth when you wear it! The temperature can drop in the low 30s and a long sleeve t-shirt and this jacket is plenty enough to keep you warm. It instantaneously became my favorite jacket for the fall and will, for sure, become a must layer this winter. Love it!

I was skeptical at first but after using it a few times I was converted. Yes it is a bit costly but this thing is amazing. It keeps you warm yet you never overheat. Most importantly it is like you wear absolutely nothing. I wear it around the house as well that's how much I love it. Once I fell asleep in it :) The other thing is the maintenance - I washed it around 10 times already and let me tell you - it looks like new. It is a bit baggy on me in Large - I am 6 feet tall and 189lb roughly, if you prefer slightly fitted go with Medium. Amazing, already iconic Patagonia item. If it was on sale I would buy another one but for now I ll try to save the one I have. Thnx Backcountry.

A must have!!

I absolutely LOVE this jacket. Bought it for my extended backpacking trip through Chile and Argentina, which included two months in Patagonia. This was the perfect jacket for this trip - excellent for layering or on its own. Its practically weightless and packs down small. Also, it dries quickly and doesnt seem to get smelly. Love the interior pockets as well. So happy with it I may buy another since i really put this one “through the wringer”. **I’d order a size up to have the option for layering since theyre a slim fit

How neat! You brought Patagonia to Patagonia.

My most versatile jacket (Period)

The title is a BIG claim and I usually do not write reviews. But, with this jacket, I had to. I lost my mountain hardwear ghost whisperer jacket on a bus in Spain. My wife and I were in Europe for an ultra bikepacking race across the Pyrenees, so I needed a jacket. I decided on this jacket. The jacket is not as warm as my mountain hardwear ghost whisperer but it is far more versatile. The jacket packs down small and is very light weight.
I wore the jacket during the Pyrenees race cycling over cols in the middle of the night. I used the jacket as my sleeping bag on the side of a dirt road in Spain, during the race. I wear it daily commuting to work on my FAT bike. I wore it during my successful attempt of the Rapha Festive 500 in Colorado (A challenge to cycle 500k between Christmas and New Year’s), where temperatures dropped to -14f. I wear it skinning in the backcountry and up the resorts early in the mornings. I unzip it going up and just zip it up when skiing down.
This is an amazing jacket for those who are always moving. I think I would need more if I were sitting around in the cold. But, why would I do that? ;-)
Sorry, no photos......

Great all around versatile jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I absolutely love this jacket and found myself wearing it more often than not. The lightweight and packability capabilities of the jacket are insane and it still keeps the chill off when it is a bit cold outside. In the Utah weather I would need something warmer. Great for your average activities like hiking and cycling in the fall! The design is awesome with a limited amount of seams to keep the jacket into few pieces. Would recommend for weather 48 degrees and up.

As good if not better than I expected

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: L

I've been waiting to upgrade my old hooded Nano Puff it's worn out and I finally bought the micro puff which I've been eye-ing since the release of it. I love it.
It's crazy light even compared to an already light Nano puff, but I noticed that my arms are much warmer in the micro.. I usually wear a t-shirt even in the upper teens - 20s.. no issues. The pockets are different they probably are an upgrade so your stuff doesn't fall out because they are deep but it's weird compared to the Nano if you walk with your hands in your pockets. I bought a L and the fit is essentially the same as the Nano, the hood is different but it's an upgrade. I'd buy a Nano puff again but I think the upgrade to Micro is worth the extra $$$.

Packable, lightweight and warm

  • Size Bought: XL

This is the type of jacket you should always have stuffed into the bottom of your backpack. Comes in handy during the winter and summer, or whenever you need a little extra warmth in the great outdoors. You can use it as a pillow when backpacking/camping and it stuffs into its own pocket and stuffs really small. This adds the perfect amount of warmth when you summit a mountain and need to add a layer for the hike down.

Very light and stuffable

I tested this jacket on a chilly fall weekend in the desert, with temperatures in the low 20's. Despite how light it is, this jacket packs a punch of warm straight to the heart. Its soft, compact-able, and stylish. Very satisfied with this Patagonia.

Amazing Warmth/Weight Ratio

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I like this item because it is a revolutionary piece in the insulation world. Patagonia worked for 10 plus years to come up with a synthetic fill that performs/acts like down. It’s lighter and has an incredible warmth/weight ratio. It’s an ultimate expedition piece and is a go to for most alpinist out there.

use the Micro Puff for a variety of different uses, general around town purposes (like errands) or I use it while I hike, or backpack, as well as for cold days out on the slopes. I have a lot of friends who bring it with them climbing as well.

The Micro Puff because it is a game-changer, and for a 9.3 ounce garment the weight to warmth ration is pretty much second to none.

Amazing Warmth/Weight Ratio

Super Light!

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: L

This is a great mid-layer jacket because its warm and stylish but it also packs really small and is SUPER LIGHT!

Great layering piece, or jacket for fall

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

I love using the Micro Puff for backpacking, and camping trips. It's super lightweight, durable, and the hood adds some extra warmth for keeping cozy while sleeping in chilly temps or around the campfire.

Neck Zipper

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Size Bought: xl

This jacket is warm, the color is great, but once you zip all the way up the stiff zipper jabs into your neck under your chin. Very uncomfortable, it's also too tight in the neck as well. I wanted to love this jacket as it's super warm and light weight, but the neck zipper is just horrible and uncomfortable. Fix the neck and this jacket would be perfect. As is it's unwearable, I had to return it.

100% The neck of this jacket is really poorly designed. Zipped all the way up, it either rubs on your chin or under your chin depending on where you pull it up to. Zipped almost all the way up, it jabs your neck under your jaw. You have to unzip it several inches for the tops of the zipper to fall open to your collarbone before its comfortable.

Super Warm & Light

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I wore this jacket for the first time on Mt. Baker. It is super warm and weighs nothing. I consistently needed less layers than my teammates and the interior pockets are perfect for gloves, snacks, etc. Only one complaint... the zipper seems to have a tendency to stick a little.

Great Puffy

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

Im super stoked about this jacket! It is great for keeping you warm sitting around the campfire and as a mid layer for winter layering. I love the hood and zipper that zips up just under my nose for those super bitter cold days.

Micro puff

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

This is a good jacket but don’t kid yourself, it’s not as warm as a down jacket. Good for active events.

I couldn’t agree more with Eric. Used it for the first time while waiting in line in 43 degree damp weather in NYC, with a base layer, and was still chilled. Walking to and from event it was adequate. Patagonia’s down sweater, which I also own, is much warmer.
