Our View - Patagonia Mens Nano-Air Light Hybrid Jacket:
The Patagonia Nano-Air Light Hybrid Jacket is brilliantly thought out design for a multi-activity jacket that will keep you warm but without interfering with your movements. The low bulk nano-air insulation is used on the front of the core to the outer arms to help retain heat while the rest of the jacket is made from soft, stretch waffle knit fabric that does a good job at retaining heat but also wicks moisture away rapidly to prevent you from getting a chill if you work you a sweat.
The Nano-Air Light Hybrid Jacket is ideal for colder conditions or as a layering piece under a hard shell in wet weather. The fit of the jacket and the choice of materials is such that you’ll never feel impeded when wearing it. Thumb loops at the sleeve end ensure the arms remain in place and prevent cold getting inside.
