For ripping skins and quick transitions, hut trips and waiting out storms, unexpected squalls and long traverses. For never again having to choose between weight, space, and warmth. We made it easy. The Micro Puff Hoody is the only jacket you need to pack.

The Micro Puff Hoody delivers the best warmth-to-weight ratio of any jacket Patagonia has ever created. The unprecedented combination of warmth, minimal weight, and compressibility--even when wet--offers the versatility of synthetic without compromising the benefits and feel of down.

Patagonia Micro Puff

The revolutionary PlumaFill insulation (65-g 100% polyester) is featherlight and compressible, offering down-level warmth that still traps your heat when it's wet. A nylon ripstop Pertex Quantum shell, with a DWR (durable waterproof repellent) finish, blocks wind and snow. The garment's design maximizes performance and minimizes useless fluff.

Features include: zippered handwarmer pockets (the left pocket doubles as a stuffsack with a reinforced carabiner clip-in loop), a pair of sleek internal drop-in pockets (made without excess, using the backside of the handwarmer pocket bags), a light and simple under-the-helmet hood, and elasticized cuffs and hem.
