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. patagonia.com
