The Patagonia Nano Puff Vest probably does not enter your mind when shopping for a running vest. But don’t be fooled by the skiing and snowboarding image of this insulator vest because it makes for an excellent companion on your runs. We have tested it thoroughly and came to the sound conclusion that the Nano Puff deserves to be in your layering system of clothing.
The PrimaLoft One insulation keeps your body temperature in check during your run and it’s so lightweight you don’t even feel you are wearing a vest. The fit is true to size and thus counts for a comfortable ride. Should you decide to take it off, this vest is highly compressible so you can pack it easily without sacrificing your running momentum.
If a jacket feels like too much, but you don’t want to be too unlayered just yet, than you should definitely consider the Patagonia Nano Puff Vest. All you need is a short or longsleeved baselayer underneath it and you are good to go!
