You're not one to let the lifts do all the work. Once they've taken you as high as they're willing to go, there's still plenty of powder hiding at the end of a lengthy traverse or at the top of a bootpack. When you like to work for your turns, the Patagonia Women's Nano-Air Light Hybrid Insulated Jacket works just as hard to keep you comfortable beneath your shell. FullRange synthetic insulation at the sleeves and core keep you warm without overheating, while the waffle panels under the arms and at the back let you vent out all the hard work you do to reach the goods. Articulated patterning and mechanical stretch incorporated throughout makes it easy to move whether you're hiking or skinning to your goal, and Polygiene odor control helps ward off smells if you do break into a sweat.

  • Hybrid midlayer helps manage heat and moisture in cool weather
  • Stretch insulation moves as you move and offers breathable warmth
  • DWR treatment sheds dirt and light precipitation
  • Waffle knit panels offer breathable venting and performance stretch
  • Thumbholes secure the sleeves for warm hands and easy layering
  • Pockets placed for access while wearing a harness or pack

Great fit, very lightweight!

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

This jacket is perfect. It's very lightweight and the fit is perfect. The only small drawback is there is no chest pocket but since it's so light for backpacking it's a good trade off.

Midweight Puffy To Fill The Void

    I bought one of these for myself. Then, my girlfriend noticed how often I was using my Nano Air Hybrid. Well, I thought that she might appreciate a hybrid puffy. So, I pulled the trigger and bought one for her as a gift. Now, it's a staple in her collection and she loves it. It vents well, insulates the core, and it seems to work well for touring and even resort riding. We'll have to see how well it does for mountain biking.

    Love it.

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

    I love this jacket and wear it almost daily. I am 5'10", 145 lb, long legs/arms, average torso. I ordered a M and it fits well. I don't think I could layer more than 2 thin shirts underneath. I love the design of the thumb catch on the sleeves, but the M is just bareeeely too short for my gangly (6' ape index) arms to fix exactly how I want in the thumb holes (the sleeve length wearing it without thumb catch is fine). I also have an original nano air w/hood and I have that in a L which fits me as well and I use that as more of a mid-outer layer as opposed to this M which is strictly a mid layer and great for skiing or other activities. It is my go-to for skiing, climbing, mountain biking, etc. I have it in black which works well as an outer layer for business casual office wear since it doesn't show dirt, ketchup, coffee stains etc etc lol.

    Just what I was looking for

    • Fit: True to size

    This jacket is extremely light, warm for its size, can be layered underneath or over top and has quickly become my go to every day jacket. I can't wait to travel with it. The only complaint? Back Country didn't send me a goat sticker with it. :)

    Nice light jacket.

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

    I gave this as a gift to my mother and she had this to say: "Super nice jacket, light weight and warm for moderate temps. Easy to wear a shell over this jacket when it's wet outside. I really like the materials used in the jacket and it has the legendary Patagonia quality. I got the black color, it goes with everything."

    The Dream Layer.

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I purchased this for my wife and this is what she had to say:
    This jacket is probably my third favorite possession after my Chemex pour-over and Rob (don't worry babe, you're still number one). Whereas jackets like the Atom LT or Nano-Air can be too hot or baselayers like the R1 or Capilene Thermal can be too stuffy under Gore-Tex shells, the Nano-Air Hybrid jacket offers near-perfect breathability/venting where you need it and ultralight insulation around your core on active ski days. It's stupid light, extremely packable, and... it has thumb holes. Whaaaaa?! I'm 5'9" and 140lbs, and size M was just the right size for my long torso and gangly arms.

    This jacket is amazing

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

    I have the hardest time finding a good temperature when I'm out skiing. I'm usually way too hot (as in, I have been known to ski in just a sports bra and ski shell in Utah in February because I get too hot with anything else). And so this jacket is amazing!

    So basically, what makes this jacket great is that it's super light weight but warm. When I first got it in the mail, I was surprised how light the jacket is and was a little bit worried, to be honest. But I quickly remembered that weight does not necessarily equal warmth and this jacket is a testament to that. It's super light but really warm. I also love that the panels in the back dump heat while the front panels keep your core nice and toasty. It also comes in great colors and the thumbholes make sure the tops of your hands stay nice and warm.

    The only somewhat negative thing I have to say about the jacket is that I don't think it's the most flattering cut on me, personally. I am usually in between a XS and S in Patagonia's clothing. I ordered a small on this one, but it fits a tiny bit too loose in the front of the stomach, but I think an XS would be too tight (not enough room for layers or for a beacon if I wanted to wear it underneath this layer). Other than that, though, this jacket is awesome!

    (I bought this jacket mainly for alpine touring, but I also plan on using it for trail running as well for cooler temps).

    Was struggling to find the right use for this jacket. For colder temp hiking during spring and fall, it worked well with high exertion going up but coming down on a hike I would get a bit cold. It's kind of a specific piece in my opinion that needs the perfect conditions. If you're a colder person like me you may be better off layering. I can see the potential for this with ski touring on warmer days so I'm going to keep trying it out because it's super comfortable and great quality to be expected, which is why I wore the life out of my nano air hoody. I have used it running in colder temps and loved it for that use if nothing else! It has been breathable in that respect and if I’m moving it keeps me warm but not overheated.

    Great for shoulder season activities

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

    I have been loving this for activities in the spring & fall. It is really good for cooler runs, hikes, & in-between moments. It dumps heat well & insulates where it needs to. The only thing is I wish the sleeves were a bit longer. I have long arms & basically the thumb holes mean that the sleeves are then long enough for my arms.

    Can't Wait To Use It

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

    I didn't even need this when I bought it, it just made too much sense to not pick one up! And now I can't wait to have a reason to use it. I'm thinking with fall hiking and maybe even some chilly mountain biking right around the corner, this is going to be my go-to. I got the Carve Coral color and love it. I feel like the photo makes it look brighter than it actually is. The really color is a bit more toned down (which is better, in my opinion).

    A Jacket fit for Goldilocks

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: XS

    I am pretty much Goldilocks when it comes to body temp--I have a hard time finding a happy balance between too hot and too cold. I have been pulling out this jacket for the last several months for all different weather conditions.

    Cold Temps: When I'm running in the cold, I heat up pretty quickly, and often find myself overheating in 20-30 degree runs in most jackets. I've tried every combination of layers but if the sun is shining I usually end up too warm and sweaty--even in two feet of snow. I honestly don't understand how this jacket breaths and vents like it does--but it makes it extremely comfortable to run in cold temperatures. With 20-30 degree temps I was comfortable with just a tank and this piece--it keeps my core warm, and my armpits breathing, with NO overheating and no sticky soggy layers--where does all the moisture go??! I have no idea how it works, but it does!

    Rain: I have worn this jacket in light to medium rain/sleet/ hail/ snow, and literally watched the moisture bead up and roll right off. It's so breathable, it doesn't offer up the same wind protection as something like the Houdini or Airshed, but for running in moisture it has been great.

    Summer climbing: We love to head up high to beat the summer temps, but again, since I'm Goldilocks, I tend to be cold standing in the shade belaying ,or early morning climbs before the sun hits the wall. I love this jacket because it's super comfortable, allows for full range of motion, and I can belay and climb without having to take my jacket off--I don't heat up too much when I start to climb.

    Fit/Features: This jacket does run a bit larger than other Patagonia jackets--it's more of a relaxed fit. I love the thumbholes on the sleeves, and this jacket does a pretty good job fending off the stink--I really can't remember the last time I washed it. I was nervous with how soft it is that it wouldn't do well against the rocks, but I've climbed in it and there is no wear at all.

    A definite must-have if you tend to be like Goldilocks in your outdoor adventuring.

    Love for the mid-layer mullet.

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

    My biggest grievance with the classic nano-air is that it can be bit warm for high output activities such as touring, xc-skiing, and cold weather mountain biking/running . I love the stretch, breathability, and the DWR works like a dream, so I was psyched when the light hybrid came out. This has been my go-to midlayer all winter long, it will defiantly come in hand this summer to for early morning high sierra hikes and camping.

    Photo: XC-skiing on the shore of lake Superior this past February. NALH for the win!

    Love for the mid-layer mullet.

    Good style, not much function

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

    I really wanted to love this jacket, but I felt a little disappointed when I wore it. As an avid hiker and marathon runner I was looking for a jacket to keep me warm but not overheated. Unfortunately I feel like this jacket provides very little warmth. I wouldn't consider it anymore than a light weight spring jacket. It also doesn't offer any wind protection.

    I do love the style of it. I'm 5'7 and 135 pounds and bought the small. It has enough room to fit multiple layers underneath, but still look flattering when worn alone. I also love the orange color with the pink zipper. I wear it a lot because I like the style, but when I go out for cold weather runs or hikes, I reach for something warmer.

    Total Game Changer, My Friends!

    Where do I even begin? I'll try to take it easy on the modifiers, but it's going to be a tremendous challenge!

    Back in 2014, the Nano Air completely changed the way I approached layering, not to mention how I viewed synthetic insulation. It was warm both as a standalone piece or layered underneath a shell. It could be worn through wet and dry weather alike and it was so breathable that I didn't have to take it off. That being said, I did have some qualms with the Nano Air: while the fabric pilling was entirely cosmetic, it at times drove me crazy, however more frustrating the jacket (despite its breathable and lightweight constitution) was almost TOO warm at times - especially those when I was really putting the proverbial pedal to the metal. I wanted an insulation layer that had the same, dependable performance as the Nano Air but with a little bit more breathability for my high-output adventures. And obviously, I wasn't the only one who was seeking this kind of layer.

    So who would have thought that Patagonia could possibly out-do themselves by creating a layer that again totally revolutionizes the way I approach layering? Well, they did and yet again, I am totally blown away by the performance and innovation of the Nano Air Light Hybrid jacket.

    I typically wear the Nano Air Light Hybrid while running in cold conditions—both road and trail, however I've also worn it resort skiing, hiking, and around town. I've largely been able to gather the effectiveness of the jacket's new technology while running, as its when I sweat the most, yet require core warmth. To say the least, it's been a highly effective midlayer / standalone piece. I will say, when I've worn it skiing, I've been cold on the chairlift, but once I get moving it's incredibly cozy. I typically wear the Nano Air Light Hybrid layered atop a lightweight merino wool baselayer and that seems to be the best methodology of layering for me. Or, should I need extra warmth, I pair it with the Merino Air and that seems to be more than sufficient.

    Starting with the easy stuff: the pilling issue seems to be completely absolved. The fabric seems to have a little bit more of a hardy constitution that is less inclined to pill. That being said, I've had the Nano Air Light Hybrid less than a year and my Nano Air is going on 3 years of heavy-duty use, so it's no surprise that I have yet to see any pilling occur.

    Okay, now onto the technical stuff: the knit panels are the stuff of legends. This is exactly the change that needed to be made—when I start to warm up, the knit panels seem to preemptively pull the moisture away from my baselayer and push it to the outside of the knit panels (in turn drying quickly and ensuring that I remain comfortable), not to mention the knit panels are innately breathable, so I'm able to regulate my temperature with minimal effort.

    Meanwhile, the Full Range insulation is still as mobile, breathable, and lightweight as ever. The core panels (combined with the lining) safeguard my precious body heat, and the insulation at the top of the sleeves and shoulders not only provides warmth, but also protects me from moisture, wind, and precipitation (which, if you've ever had cold or/and wet arms before, you know it's not fun). Not to mention, the extra DWR treatment is really convenient, though its performance is relatively self evident.

    As for the subtle design features: the thumbhole cuffs are awesome. That might be one my favorite features of this jacket - and for once, they're at the right length! I've long struggled with Patagonia's thumbholes, but I don't have a problem with these.

    Regarding the fit: I have a Small and it seems to fit slightly relaxed on me. Albeit it's incredibly comfortable and I still have unimpeded mobility, however I'm sort of in-between an XS and Small with Patagonia's fit model. So I can go with either size. All in all, I'm sold on this jacket and I highly (bigly) recommend it to folks looking for a breathable, insulated layer.
