Patagonia Nano Puff Pant Product Review

Winter fisherman and midnight pub crawlers rejoice; there is a pant made just for you. The Patagonia Nano Puff Pant was originally made to wear underneath your waders to help keep you warm and happy on those cold winter days, but are just as enjoyable to wear around the house or a night out on the town. I have to tell you that after wearing these pants just a few times they have more than met my expectations. Not only are these pants warm but they are also extremely comfortable. So comfortable that I have spent more time wearing these pants outside of my waders than inside.


These pack-able, breathable pants are made out of a lightweight 60 gram “primaloft” insulation. This insulation is a high tech synthetic material made with ultra fine fibers which help form air pockets to trap your body heat. One of the great features of a synthetic material is that even if it gets wet, it still retains most of the insulating properties; a plus if you happen to take an unexpected swim. They also dry out much faster than other materials. For the shell of these beauties Patagonia uses a 100% polyester that also has a DWR (Durable Water Repellent), to block out the bad and keep in the good. The backside of these pants are reinforced with a tear resistant material so you don’t damage them, ensuring your insulation stays good for years to come.


Functional and fashionable would best describe this gem of a product. A must have for the upcoming season and a great gift idea for yourself or the angler in your life. Come take a look down at the Caddis Fly shop and Seasons Greetings from all of us here at the shop.
