Patagonia R3 Jacket -

Patagonia Men's R3 Jacket, comprised of a warm, high-loft, compressible Regulator® fabric, is a great mid-layer fleece for a variety of conditions. I'd try to compare the outer fabric of the R3 to the fur of some animal... but there just isn't a creature out there that is this soft. You gotta step up your game, nature; make an even softer sheep or something. Anyways, Patagonia developed the Regulator® Polartec® Thermal Pro® polyester fabric to wick moisture, dry quickly and retain warmth. Polartec Power Dry® panels run down the sides and undersides of the arms giving freedom of movement. So throw on this fleece by itself or under a shell to keep yourself active no matter the temperature... and try not to look down on all those not-as-soft critters; they're trying their best.

Some places make you shiver just thinking about them: Baffin Island, Antarctica, the Himalaya in winter. For those drawn to the cold and wild, the R3® Jacket delivers superb midlayer warmth. Compressible and resilient, this Regulator® fleece jacket can also be worn on its own in chilly, dry weather. Made of high-loft Polartec® Thermal Pro® polyester fabric, the plush R3 fleece wicks moisture, dries quickly and caches heat when temperatures plunge. Polartec Power Dry® panels now run along the underside of the arms and down the sides, allowing full mobility, enhanced durability and contributing to the improved, technical fit. Sonic/Stitch seam construction reduces bulk on the center front zipper; a soft, kissing-welt center-front zipper garage is soft on the chin; 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.

Patagonia R3 Jacket Reviews:


Warmth for sure!

I have always loved my fleece garments of which I have many. All have a generous collar and when fully zipped, provide neck protection from wind and the elements. My R3 is the first that I feel can be improved. The collar is shorter and leaves the neck exposed. I don't like this feature at all and when I have a moment, I'll exchange it. Hopefully the next will be more to my liking.

Most comfortable fleece

I've tried a lot of the premium fleeces available from a lot of brands, and the R3 has the best fit/articulation for layering. I like to wear this under a down mid-layer in cold weather, I don't get a single tight spot anywhere and it's very warm.

The new version of the R3 is very warm. It seems to fit closer to the body than the previous version, and the cuffs and hem trap heat very well. The cuffs/hem also lie flat so the jacket doesn't bunch up, which is great.
