Patagonia Men's Retro Rhythm Hoody Jacket:
It's old school for the new class. Patagonia's Retro Rhythm Hoody features 1/2-inch thick pile knit fabric backed by abrasion-resistant panels along the sleeves, elbows and cuffs to minimize potential pilling. Contemporary twists include Y-Joint sleeves that won't leave your forearms exposed while you're reaching for a hold or a cup of double-tall. You might find a couple of retro-clones out there on the market, but Patagonia's Retro Rhythm Hoody has a quality knit design and the added reinforcement panels make it suitable for hard play and five years of undergraduate study.
