Primo Puff Jacket

The Men's Primo Puff Jacket is Patagonia's warmest snow jacket for skiing, snowboarding, and surviving winter's day-to-day. It has a stretchy Gore-Tex shell for rugged waterproofing and comfortable breathability. Plumafill insulation adds an abundance of warmth that feels like down, but it's synthetic to stay warm even if you happen to get wet. There are zippers under each arm to amplify airflow for sufficient ventilation. The powder skirt is removable to transition from ski resort to ski town with ease.

I bought this jacket for PNW winters and I can’t think of anything I’d do to improve it, outside of maybe a right wrist pocket. I haven’t taken it snowboarding since I have a dedicated jacket for that, but I could see it being a little warm unless you were in the teens F.. This jacket with a base layer would probably be good below zero for a long time under no exertion. Fit and build quality are what you’d expect of Patagonia.

I’ll report back once the temp drops, but this jacket seems to have it all!

Lightweight Insulation Very Warm

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

It's been years since I've had an insulated ski jacket. I'd been running a separate shell and fleece/insulating layer while skiing, but seeing as I'm a strictly an inbounds-skiing Dad with the commensurate body and declining "cool" factor, I decided to get myself an all-in-one this time around. The Primo Puff was a riproaring deal - more than half off MSRP in early spring. I picked a blue one up even though I knew I wouldn't be able to put it to the test until the 2020-2021 ski season (COVID closures). Around town, it's mostly great. Fits true to size (L for me, 6'0 200 lbs) The hood is sized for a helmet and very floppy if not cinched up. The hood cinches are also pretty finicky, and I'm not sure how they'll hold in the long run. I'm confident in Patagonia's warranty if the cinches lose their grip. The zippers are a little on the "sticky" side but nothing like the Millet rain jacket I have, thankfully.

Well designed

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

Not mentioned in description, it has an insulated collar to keep wind and snow out when hood is down. Also has insulated cuffs for same purpose. I use for snowboarding and to wear to work when in Canada (bought grey color). Excellent fitting over helmet. Love all features of it. Light weight and easily compacts into carry on suitcase.

Hey Chris, when you're out the ski hill do you overheat in it? I really like the oxide color and that its insulated all the way through the neck, and the overall tech specs seem nice, but I'm worried the insulation might be TOO much. I currently use TNF Brigandine shell/pants and I will layer for what I'm doing that day backcountry or snowshoeing etc, but generally when I'm just out riding or skiing off the lifts I gotta layer up a little more and it can be a hassle when I want to unlayer at the lodge bar midday for a beer you know?? If you do get too hot sometimes, how well do the vents work on it? Say I hit some glades and heat up from workin the trees hard, get to the lift and im damn near sweating, are the vents sufficient or do you find yourself unzipping entirely? Sorry for the long drawn out question!
