How warm is Patagonia Nano Air?

In our experience, the ideal temperature band for the jacket as a single layer while ski touring seems to be around 23 to 14 degrees Fahrenheit (-5 to -10 Celsius). In warmer conditions, the Nano-Air was simply too much jacket (moving quickly in just a baselayer or a light shell to break the wind was more comfortable).

Is 650 down fill warm?

A 650 down fill jacket with 330g of down may be as warm as an 800 down fill jacket with only 120g, but the 650 fill jacket will be bigger, heavier and take up more room when stuffed in your pack. The warmest down jackets are built with a high fill power down and a heavier down weight.

What does 800 fill down mean?

The more insulating air pockets down traps, the warmer it will keep you! So in simple terms, the higher the fill power of a down jacket or sleeping bag, the warmer it will be for its weight. A jacket with 300g of 550 fill down, for example, will provide more warmth than one with 120g of 800 fill down.

Why are Patagonia jackets so warm?

The shell and lining of the jacket are made from 100% nylon ripstop Pertex Quantum. It also features elasticized cuffs and hem, which are designed to retain body heat and keep you incredibly warm. The coolest thing about the jacket is that it self-stuffs into the left pocket, and is therefore very travel-friendly.

What's the difference between Patagonia r1 and r2?

In summary: Techface adaptations increase the warmth, durability and wind & water resistances by a good margin compared to the base models but also sacrifice breathability significantly. R2 is warmer and less breathable than the R1. They offer very similar (same) durability and weather resistance capabilities.
