Patagonia Down Sweater vs. the Patagonia Nano Puff Jacket

 (Photo from trusnow.com)
Just submitted an answer to a question on Patagonia.com about the Down Sweater and the Nano Puff.  Curious to know what others out there think.  I like the classic down look and feel but the new-tech properties of synthetic fill are a nice advancement.  I have a few months before my next rainy European excursion so we'll see.

Lots of different opinions out there. The general argument is in favor of the Nano Puff if water is in the equation because of the Nano's ability to stay warm when wet. I personally like the look of the Down Sweater's stitching but may go with the Nano ultimately. Two good choices though.

I own them both! I live in MT and when it is cold like below 10 the down sweater is great. when it is warmer I use the nano puff I just got for Christmas. I also ski, climb and hike in the nano but nothing is like down while belaying or resting while climbing in the cold or on a mountain.

Yeah, the down is just hard to pass up. I personally don't have all of those outdoor activities going on in my life and, like you said, it seems the Nano is the perfect solution for those things. The "belaying" and "resting" you mentioned is more my style! Thanks for reading the blog.
