A warm, easy-wearing fleece jacket made of 100% recycled polyester. Classic design and great retro looks make this fleece a versatile piece. Fair Trade Certified sewn.
Made of 100% recycled polyester double-sided shearling fleece, Retro Pile fabric provides easy-wearing warmth for any cool-weather venture, thanks to a soft, fuzzy exterior and a smooth, skin-friendly interior. The full-zip Retro Pile Jacket has a zip-through, stand-up collar for heat-trapping comfort and raglan sleeves that allow full mobility and compatibility with pack straps. Flat-seam construction throughout reduces bulk and helps minimize seam chafe. A zippered left-chest pocket and two zippered hand pockets provide secure storage for daily necessities and come equipped with webbing zipper pulls. Soft elastane trim finishes the cuffs and hem. And the Retro Pile Jacket is Fair Trade Certified™ sewn, which means the people who made it earned a premium for their labor.
Patagonia's Retro Pile Jacket is a classic piece of kit that's perfect as a winter layer to keep the warmth in and the chill out. Double-sided shearling fleece is both a cosy lining and an effective hard-wearing outer, and when combined with finishing touches such as beefy YKK zippers, it makes for a versatile fleece for all conditions.
A small chest pocket gives the jumper extra functionality, and the large zip pulls make it a breeze to throw on even when wearing gloves. This is ultimately an excellent casual fleece with a bevy of features that make it a true cold-weather essential.
