The Patagonia Nano-Air Light Hybrid Insulated Jacket shines in high-output activities in cold weather because of its highly breathable back panel and warm front. Designed to be lightweight and flexible for lots of movement, the jacket is comfortable and easy to layer under other jackets. The Nano-Air Light Hybrid shines for its odor resistance, front panel water resistance, and comfort, but it may not be the best choice for someone looking for a do-it-all jacket. For what it does, however, this jacket does it very well.
