I know that it’s mid July, and that it’s freaking hot out, but I had to write about Patagonia’s new Nano Puff® Hybrid Jacket. A combination of two of their best sellers, the Nano Puff® Jacket and iconic R2® fleece, this hybrid jacket brings the best of both worlds together. The weather-shedding qualities of the Nano Puff insulation at the top offers warmth and protection to crucial body areas while the breathable R2 fleece offers comfort and flexibility for cold-weather activity. This jacket is just further proof that Patagonia continues to be innovative in their designs and responsive to what their customers need. I hope this post helped you all mentally cool off and think about the winter sports you can’t wait to jump back into some months down the road.
