Looking for warmth? The Patagonia Hyper Puff Hoody provides unbeatable heat in the form of 100-grams of HyperDAS insulation. The former Patagonia DAS Parka was a piece of outdoor gear beloved by many. Its durability, warmth, and cozy factor was through the roof, making it an excellent option for winter wear or cold, icy belays. The Hyper Puff Patagonia Hoody exemplifies all the features that many love. Warmth, coziness, and comfort! While this jacket isn't as bulky as its predecessor, it is undoubtedly warm! In our testing period, we determined that this is the warmest jacket tested, earning a Top Pick award. It offers superior weather resistance and comfort in the form of its mobile and flattering face fabric design. Patagonia also offers many cute colors to have you looking great all winter long.
While this jacket is warm, it certainly isn't light. Warmth is typically a trade-off for compressibility and weight, and this is no exception. While it does have its own stuff sack and compresses to a surprisingly small size for its bulk, it is the heaviest jacket in this review. The Arc'teryx Atom LT Hoody, our Top Pick for Winter Recreation is an excellent alternative if you seek a warm but compressible jacket option. This jacket is also a little more breathable overall, making it better for winter sports where you might sweat. If you seek a jacket that offers the ultimate in warmth, the Patagonia Hyper Puff Hoody is our best recommendation. Wear it on the coldest days of winter or layer it with another jacket for superior comfort when it gets cold outside.
