    Default R2 fleece or the "Nano Puff".....

    I have an R1 fleece (Patagonia) , but in a store recently, tried on a "Nano Puff"...wow!! Can that piece of clothing actually be warm? it's so light.

    I had a question as to what would be warmer: Merino midweight base/ Patagonia R1 Fleece/ Shell or Merino midweight base/"Nano Puff"/Shell..


    Anyone have any experience with a "Nano Puff" pullover?

    I will be camping in places that could get in the lower 30's at night...

    I don't have experience with the Patagonia Nano Puff directly, but I'm pretty confident that it would be warmer than the R1 and midweight merino, at about the same weight (at least for the pullover). I don't tend to bring anything heavier than an R1 fleece unless I anticipate the temperature to drop below 35F, but I'm a Northerner also.

    I'm not a fan of fleece. I'd go with the Puff
    The trail was here before we arrived, and it will still be here when we are gone...enjoy it now, and preserve it for others that come after us

    I have a Nano Puff and it is my favorite piece of clothing. I highly recommend if you do any cool or cold weather hiking. It's much warmer than the R1 fleece or any of the articles of clothing you asked about. And it is so light weight and packable, not a difficult choice at all.

    Start out slow, then slow down.
