Spend forty years designing gear for life lived in the mountains and you too might create a jacket like the Patagonia Men’s Nano Puff Hybrid Insulated Jacket. This jacket features Patagonia’s Nano Puff insulation up top and its iconic R2 fleece everywhere else. Treated with a water-repellent coating, the top portion of this jacket sheds weather and warms your chest, arms, and shoulders, while R2 fleece insulation breathes away sweaty moisture, stretches, and adds a soft touch to the bottom, inside and out. You’re protected from the cold and free to move about as you need to during long climbs or ski approaches, without overheating. A hybrid by definition should always be the best of both worlds, and the Nano Puff Hybrid accomplishes this in spades.
