How does the Patagonia down vest compare with the Patagonia nano puff vest, which is filled with primaloft? They are both the same price (approx. $150). I would think the down would be warmer. I bought the primaloft and didn't realize until I received it that it wasn't down. Which kind of vest is warmer? What are the advantages of each kind?
CARYN A I don.t own the primaloft vest so cannot compare them. I love the down and also have the down sweater jacket. They are very light weight, warm and do not shed feathers.
MARGENE C I have the down vest in white and I love it. It is really warm and I've even washed it with no issues. I also have a black one but now I'm seeing these colors and may want another! I wear them when a down jacket is just too much. Great to wear with any length of sleeve tshirt - or sleeveless as well.
DEE Z Since I bought the down one I can't address the primaloft; but I love mine.
so small to pack and very warm and snug fitting. I took it on an alaska cruise and used it a lot under things and alone.
