“First rule of Puffballs: never travel to a cold place without one. Second rule of Puffballs: there are no more rules. Wear them alone, over Capilene" on mild days or over fleece on cooler ones. Wear them under fleece, under shells, on a summit or out to sea. Layer the vest under the jacket. The possibilities are endless. The highly compressible Puffballs have slick 1.3-oz., 30-denier ripstop nylon shells and linings that move freely over layers and under shells. Their soft wind-resistant nylon shells have a DWR (durable water repellent) finish which makes them suitable for days of blustery winds or light precipitation. Unlike down, the Pullballs' synthetic insulation dries quickly so they recover their loft even after getting soaked. Designed for more extensive outerwear applications, the Jacket's insulation is a bit loftier and warmer than the Vest's. All Puffballs compress into their own pockets. Made in USA” (Patagonia, Spring 1997).

Please carefully review product descriptions, photos, and measurements before purchasing to ensure a proper fit and satisfaction. Please note that items for sale are vintage/pre-owned in nature, with most being previously worn. Each garment is carefully inspected during the listing process for imperfections/flaws which are then photographed and/or noted in the item's description. See the “Condition Ratings” tab for more information.

All sales are final.

Please refer to the measurements included in the description to ensure a proper fit, as vintage sizing frequently differs slightly from modern sizing. Sizes listed in the product title are based on the “best fits a” size rather than the tag size. To ensure a proper fit, we strongly recommend comparing the provided measurements to a similar garment of your own that fits to your liking. For more information, visit the “How to Measure” tab.
