The Patagonia Nano Puff Pullover Insulated Jacket for women is a lightweight and comfortable jacket that is best suited for walking around town or for layering under a shell in cold temperatures. The limited breathability and mobility make this not ideally suited for intense outdoor activities. However, the impressive synthetic warmth-to-weight ratio and moderate wind-resistance make this a useful product.
