Insulation that is stretchy, breathable, and warm.

A new era of highly technical, supremely stylish jackets starts today with the Patagonia Women's Nano-Air Insulated Jacket. This trim-fitting jacket is filled with Patagonia's revolutionary FullRange insulation. An ingenuous blending of features, this innovative insulation stretches like fleece but breathes like synthetic insulation you've come to know and love. Now, when you're power-shopping in Manhattan or powering up a slippery slab, every move you make will be warm and dry, without any extra effort on your part.

Nylon ripstop on the outside won't let sharp elbows or crabby granite turn your jacket into tatters. Nylon plain weave on the inside glides over your baselayer with the greatest of ease. DWR all over helps excess water bead up and roll away, rather than sit on the jacket surface and slowly sink into the insulation. FullRange insulation blends the warmth and breathability of other synthetic insulation with the stretch and flexibility of fleece.

The slim fit leaves little excess fabric to impede your progress. A lone chest pocket is perfect for cash and credit cards. Two hand pockets hold gloves, lipstick, or a spare bag of trail mix. The mid-height collar won't guarantee your safety against vampires, but will protect your neck against a bit of nasty wind. Designed to fill the gap between the R2 and Nano-Puff jackets, the Nano-Air will leave you actively happy for years to come.

Bumping into Pros...

This picture was taken last October on Mt. Whitney. While hiking the 99 switch backs, my co-worker and I bumped into Steve Reifenstuhl, a totally badass and long time Patagonia ambassador. Steve and I are from the same town in Alaska, small world.

Unanswered Question

What is the size of the fold?

I'm more curious how this jacket performs in areas where winters are more mild, say Phoenix, where the low is around 45* F?

I use it hiking the Arizona Trail in winter thru spring. I have the nano puff but it was too hot to hike in, great in camp or at a rest stop, but I run hot so bought the nano air and what a huge difference! Out of the tent and down the trail and on my way in the nano air and I don't over heat! It breathes but keeps you warm when you need it.

Does this have the same small compartment that the whole coat can zip into when folded, like the Nano Puff?

No, the jacket only has two small chest pockets and two hand pockets

What is the center back length of a medium? 

26 inches

What is the maximum temperature recommended?

Best Answer

Ann,



That would be very subjective. Based on how you run (hot or cold) and what clothing you would wear with it. I would say anywhere from 32 degrees F - 15 degrees F if you run warmer.

Ladies, take note.

This product was built with temperature regulation and mobility at the center of its design. Made to stand up to brutal colds, but with maximum breathability, you won't have to worry about packing 10 layers to do the work of one piece. Awesome work by Patagonia with this product.
