The ultimate cold-weather midlayer, Patagonia's R2 Jacket provides exceptionally breathable, quick-drying warmth in our most compressible Regulator style.
The highly refined construction and fabric of this Regulator® fleece traps heat and breathes freely to keep you warm and comfortable across a wide range of conditions. The main body relies on high-loft R2® fabric (Polartec® Thermal Pro® 63% recycled polyester), which is superlight, wicking, compressible, stretchy and soft. R1® Polartec® Power Grid™ high/low grid panels run along the underside of the upper arms and down the sides of the body to improve fit, mobility and comfort range. The lower arms use cozy R2® fabric, and the softly lined inner collar and kissing-welt zipper garage go easy on the neck and chin. Other details: Sonic/Stitch seam construction on all zippers reduces bulk, raglan seams enhance mobility and comfort, slim zippers close the sleek handwarmer pockets; the pocket bags double as stealthy internal mesh drop-in pockets.
Patagonia's R2 Fleece Jacket is a great cold-weather mid layer and technical fleece capable of performing across a wide range of conditions. The soft, moisture wicking and super stretchy fabric is fast drying, exceptionally warm and breathes freely.
The body of the fleece is constructed from Polartec Thermal Pro which is warm and super soft to touch. Fluffy is probably the best description to use. The side panels are made from stretchy R1 Polartec Power Grid fabric (just like the R1 jackets) which improves the overall fit, breathability and abrasion resistance of the fleece.
This slim fitting fleece features plenty of storage space with 2 roomy handwarmer pockets and one chest pocket, all of which are lined with a soft perforated fabric for extra comfort. As always Patagonia have really thought about their fabrics and methods used to minimise the impact it has on people and the environment.
