Patagonia Women's Stretch Nano Storm Jacket review. OnTheSnow reviewed this insulated jacket as part of its 2016/2017 Jacket Buyers' Guide.

Favorite Features: The soft and cozy warmth of a sleeping bag you can’t get out of on a cold camping morning thanks to Nano-Air® insulation, you’ll equally have a hard time taking this great-looking Patagonia piece off. A cold-day ascenders dream, boot pack to skin track, we’re also big fans of the Cohaesive® embedded cord-lock system that make helmet and hem adjustments push-button easy.

Room for Improvement: We got nada, this jacket is rad to the bone.


Fit: Fits true to size with some give thanks to tangible stretch that's built to move.

On-Snow Performance: Frigid, blustery days on the hill, meet your match! Not a wisp of wind or cold was able to penetrate this soft and stretchy jacket that wraps you in warmth and zips comfortably over a base and mid layer. For those who prefer a longer, roomier style with a softshell like feel that can still rock the technical, performance front. This Patagonia piece will also do well sand mid layer come spring.

Manufacturer Description: The Stretch Nano Storm® Jacket was built to buffer the start-stop cycle of alpine climbing in blowing, wet and cold conditions. A highly breathable liner and FullRange™ insulation, wrapped in an H2No® Performance Standard shell fabric, create a belay parka plus storm shell in one.
