Patagonia Nano-Air Hoody Women's
Nano-Air is Patagonia's game-changing all-weather insulator series, and it's so effective the design hasn't changed for 2015/16. Like the Nano Air Jacket, the Nano Air Hoody is stretchy, insulated and lightly waterproofed, designed to be worn all day, whether you’re powering up a mountain or taking in the view at the top. Made with top-of-the-range synthetic materials (including warm-when-wet insulation) the Nano-Air Hoody is one of the most breathable insulating jackets on the market today. Four-way mechanical stretch across the whole jacket, harness compatible pockets and easy adjustability make it a wardrobe staple for any keen climber, skier or outdoor enthusiast. You’ll never have to layer up or down again.

Patagonia’s revolutionary FullRange insulation is designed to keep you warm when it’s cold and keep you cool when you’re working hard, without having to constantly adjust your layers. First used in the Nano-Air series, this lightweight polyester insulation is engineered with four-way stretch, so gives you a wide range of movement but still maintains its structure. It’s also highly breathable which is what allows it to regulate your body temperature so efficiently over a range of stop-start activities.
The DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish has become almost ubiquitous in the outdoor industry, and the satisfying water beading it provides has become the hallmark of a beautiful jacket. It is not strictly waterproof but will provide protection on it’s own against a light shower; however it does wear off so needs to be topped up from time to time. The DWR stops water from soaking into the outer layer of waterproof fabrics like Gore-Tex, meaning they remain breathable and light in even in heavy rain.
Patagonia's Apparel Warranty
Patagonia offer an ‘Ironclad Warranty’ which means if you’re dissatisfied with the performance of a product at the time of purchase or afterwards, or if it breaks unexpectedly, they will provide a free exchange, refund or repair. They will also repair damage from wear and tear for a reasonable price, and have a section of their website that shows you to repair your own clothing, so there’s no need to unnecessarily buy new gear.
Patagonia's Environmentally Friendly Business Plan
Right from the start, Patagonia has been at the forefront of environmentally friendly production, and are still one of the only companies in the world that offer a completely transparent supply chain to anyone who cares to look. They are constantly experimenting and developing new ways to bring us durable and sustainably produced clothing - recycled polyester, organic cotton, traceable down, responsibly sourced merino and undyed cashmere are all common materials in the Patagonia catalogue. As well as using the best materials and production methods for the planet, Patagonia also make sure every one of their employees is treated fairly, from the shop floor to factories all over the world. And they donate a percentage of their yearly profits to environmental initiatives and community projects in many different countries.
