Patagonia R2 Jacket - Even more technical this season and made of breathable, compressible, stretchy, high-loft Regulator® fleece, the R2® Jacket provides superior lightweight insulation under a shell.Days shorten, snow falls, ice forms - the taste of autumn yielding to winter just means a shift in activities. And since Patagonia's R2® Jacket traps heat and breathes freely, and is now more technical than ever, it keeps you warm but not swampy on long approaches, ice climbs and ski tours. Patagonia's most popular Regulator® fleece jacket primarily uses refined high-loft Polartec® Thermal Pro® recycled polyester fabric, which is superlight, wicking, compressible, stretchy and soft. An R1® Polartec Power Dry® high/low grid panel runs along the underside of the arms, down the sides and across the lower-front torso, hybridizing the jacket to improve fit and mobility and extend your comfort range. The cuffs now have discreet, on-seam thumb loops; the softly lined inner collar and kissing-welt zipper garage are soft on the neck and chin; Sonic/Stitch seam construction reduces bulk on the center front zipper; offset shoulder seams stay clear of pack straps; zippers close the external pockets (one chest and two handwarmers, above harness-line), while the handwarmers’ mesh pocket bags double as internal drop-in pockets.

The Polartec Power Stretch® panels provide added durability in high wear areas, and a little give in all the right places while retaining a nice slim fit.

love the jacket, not rock creek

I was scared to buy an R2 because of reviews on Patagonia's own website. I think this jacket is just fine, but rock creek is not the place you should buy it.
Everyone commented that the new R2 has a slim cut that may not fit all body styles. I'm 5'4" and curvy but very athletic and the small fits me well. I would have liked to try the medium out, but given rock creek's horrible return policy (it costs you money to return stuff? no one worthwhile does that anymore.) and non-existent exchange policy, I guess I'll be sticking with what I got.
The gist: the R2 is an ace jacket so far. Buy the a size up from your normal. But buy it from backcountry, not rock creek.

Ubercomfy everyday jacket

I tried on the zip-up fleece jackets at my local Patagonia store and was torn between two other, more flattering styles. Then I tried on this one, although I wasn't crazy about the look of the non-fleece panels, and was sold. It was by FAR more comfortable--the other jackets felt constricting, especially in the sleeves, whereas this one feels like a layer of soft fur. The longer length in back keeps my body heat in (although yes, it does create a faux belly pooch). The collar doesn't irritate my neck, even fully zipped. It came out of the wash looking perfect. I love the white. I'm 5'6" 130 lb, size 6, usually wear a small, and the small fits perfectly. I'll be wearing it every day, so it's worth it.

Not sized for everyone

I'm 5'8"/130 lbs and this jacket fits me perfectly for cold aerobic activities. The previous version of the R2 was slightly short on me but this newly designed version hit perfectly mid hip. I can definitely see why some of the reviewers find the length way too long; I wouldn't want it an inch longer. Yes the sleeves are slightly long too but when using the thumb loops, the length is perfect. Using thumb loops on my other jackets is uncomfortable due to the stretch in the sleeves but this jacket doesn't have that problem. When not using the thumb loops, the cuffs slightly bunch up but hey you can't have everything. This is my go to mid-layer for climbing and snowboarding since it breathes extremely well.

Best fleece ever made

Ridiculously soft, cozy, and well-fitting, while being light, breathable, and versatile. I wear this as a mid layer in winter, as a top layer to keep out the chill in the fall/spring, and keep it in my office in summer to ward off AC. I also wear it almost every day around the house, to run errands round town, and often to bed. I am a small frame (5'3" 110lbs) and the XS has enough room for layers underneath. Can't recommend it enough.

I have been shopping at patagonia since 1988, and this is the best fleece they have ever made. Finally a perfect cut! I am 5"8 and 135lbs, and this is slim fitting and long… most of the women's cuts in the past have been short and boxy. This is a cut for an athletic body - Patagonia please continue this cut in all your clothes! I bought 2, they are so soft.
Jennifer99 at Patagonia on 01/24/2014

love the overall longer length and thumbhole

I have been waiting for a longer version of the R2 (the most versatile weight fleece) and here it is. I'm 5'6" and sleeves are not too long. Love the thumb holes. The cut is feminine but medium fits my size 10 bod. Body length covers some of my bum and seems to stay put. Like the mixed fabric. This will keep me warm outside and look great while I'm relaxing, too.
frissy at Patagonia on 09/15/2013

nice fit

Long and thin people need clothes too! I like that this jacket has sleeves long enough to keep me warm and a body long enough to cover my core without that annoying cold gap at the waist when I move. So many things these days are just too short and wide! The soft, cozy fleece is just a bonus to go along with the proper fit for my body type.
GreenKanin at Patagonia on 02/02/2014

Black R2 Jacket is fabulous

I wear this jacket everywhere. It is perfect for the crisp fall days. I love the fit of it; its more feminine silhouette is very flattering. I often wear it jogging when it's a bit cold outside because the three pockets allow me to store my wallet, keys and mp3 player. This product gets two thumbs up!

A Favorite

I am 5'6" 125 lbs and ordered this in XS.I can easily wear a thick layer underneath,if necessary.It is incredibly soft and the warmest fleece I have.It makes an excellent base layer under the slope side hoody or a nano puff for wind resistance. Note-I got this in 2012 so the sizing may be different now.
china at Patagonia on 01/01/2014


I have a Better Sweater and love it! I wanted to try this R2 because it has a slimming fit also. I now have two favorites! I ordered the jeweled berry and it is a bright pink. I am 5'7" and 137lb. Medium fit perfectly. Snag one while they are on sale!

Negative Reviews:

Too long, flared hem

I love that this jacket is soft and fleecy inside, and I love the aqua color. But it's too long for me. I'm 5'7" and the large goes over my butt and then the hem flares out in the back. The other problem is that the fleece doesn't extend to the hem. The bottom 3 inches are the same material as the underarms. So it's fleecy and plush over the abs, and then hangs silky and flat--making me look like I have a tummy. It fits well in the shoulders, chest and arms.
Kazamamama at Patagonia on 10/09/2013

Not a good fit

Too narrow and long for my tall athletically built 10 year old, but the next size up is way too wide. Very disappointed as have to search for a new under ski wear fleece and it won't be a usually reliable Patagonia. Please go back to the old fit, both of us loved it!
DDTMom at Patagonia on 08/18/2013

not satisfactory---returned it

I purchased an R2 jacket in May and love it. I wanted to purchase another one, and ordered the same size but it is cut much smaller and did not fit.

Neutral Reviews:

Be careful of sizing & fit

This is a beautiful jacket! I ordered it in the green Watercress color and it's very pretty. The material is so soft and warm, but it's also lightweight and breathable.

However, I am very disappointed in the fit of this jacket. I wear a medium in juniors shirts and wear a size 6 pants. I ordered a medium in this jacket, and it's honestly very big. The body of the jacket comes so far away from my body. I could easily wear a size small. The bottom of the jacket barely comes to the top of my pants. All of my shirts hang below the bottom hem of the jacket, and it just looks very awkward.

Try before you buy! I was so excited to get this jacket, and now I don't even want to wear it.
RegularShopaholic at Rock/Creek Outfitters on 11/11/2011

Too long!

I ordered a size small. I'm 5'4" and 105 lbs. This jacket was unbelievably long. It fit through the body, but the length covered my entire backside and the sleeves were way too long. I like longer jackets and sweaters, but this looked completely ridiculous on me. If I were 5'10", it might have worked.
