Stuff We Like: Patagonia's Nano pullover

Patagonia Nano pullover

We love puffy jackets. We just wish they didn’t make us feel so, well, puffy. Therein lies the brilliance of Patagonia’s new barely there Nano pullover ($150). Three ounces lighter than Patagonia’s Down Sweater—a SKI staff favorite we were sure would never be unseated—the Nano’s synthetic PrimaLoft insulation retains heat even when wet. The wind- and moisture-resistant polyester shell is 100 percent recycled material and recyclable through Patagonia’s Common Threads program. You can use it as a midlayer, wear it alone on a spring ski day and take it out at night. That’s versatility.
