The perfect cold-weather crosslayer, Patagonia's R2 TechFace Jacket provides warmth and breathability with the added benefits of abrasion and weather resistance for extended versatility in shifting mountain conditions.
The versatile double-weave fabric in our new R2® TechFace Jacket combines a weather-shedding, durable face with a warm, breathable, high-loft interior.
Its stretchy and cozy all-mountain performance further extends into a dialed feature set: The zippered handwarmer pockets sit high, above harness- and pack-line, and their backsides form a pair of interior drop-in mesh pockets; the sleek, stretch-knit Variable Conditions Cuffs resist snags and push up easily; a partial-hem binding seals in warmth; a zippered left-chest pocket holds small essentials. With a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.
The R2 TechFace Jacket from Patagonia is a high performance fleece with a soft feel inner and harder, durable outer. The Regulator fleece is soft and comfortable to wear while doing what it should by regulating body heat. The durable face fabric does a good job of shedding light rain and providing some wind resistance. The grid effect is not to everyone's taste in terms of feel and looks but it works really well.
This Jacket has two hand warmer pockets and an external chest pocket all with zips. This is not a lightweight piece but the performance, features and warmth of it make the jacket a great choice for hiking, climbing andother mountain activities in cold conditions.
