Description

When cutting-edge adventures require adaptability, the Patagonia R2 Jacket for Men takes on the insulation challenge with the versatile, lightweight, compressible, low bulk of R2 performance fleece. A midlayer mountain staple, this fleece jacket features variegated fibers to enhance compressibility, breathability, stretch, warmth, and wind resistance. A breathable stand-alone jacket when you're aerobically on the move during a light and fast endeavor or as an insulating layer under a shell when the mercury plummets, this fleece is the temperature chameleon. Its matte-finished fabric features higher loft from improved variegated fibers with longer insulating tall fibers and denser, supportive short fibers. At the top of the front full length coil zipper the fleece jacket collar and chin flap are lined with Polartec® Power Stretch fabric (recycled polyester) for next-to-skin comfort. Subtle performance details include shoulder seams that are set forward for pack-wearing comfort, welded handwarmer pockets with reverse-coil zippers surrounded with Supplex® strips for snag-free operation, and zippered chest pocket with welded-in, reverse-coil zipper surrounded with a snag-free nylon strip. Ideal for hiking, climbing, kayaking, and tackling the urban jungle, the slim fitting Patagonia Men's R2 Jacket 100% recyclable through the Common Threads Recycling Program.

January 15, 2012

I have R1, R2, R3 and R4 and R2 is my favorite. It is very light, warm and does not get in the way during various outdoor activities. I've worn it for hiking, climbing, sking and even golfing. R2 is also very breathable and dries up very quickly. I strongly recommend R2.

If you're looking for a casual fleece that's great for layering, then this is it. I also wear it alone in the fall or spring, but watch out if it's windy - it doesn't provide any help there. To sum it up, it's everything you expect from Patagonia. Great.

I love the entire R line. I previously bought this seasons R1 and R3 and have the R4 from a prior year. Great fit for me in medium, 5'7 and pretty broad shoulders for my height. I primarily use it as a mid layer when the temp starts to dip...nice as casual wear as well as long as it's not too windy.

Great fleece jacket
June 12, 2011

I highly recommend this to all the person who go to the trekking in the fall or winter. I have not concluded the durability since I just started trying this jacket and have a confidence of the warmth for the trekking activities. However, in order to keep the warmth, it requires having the wind proof jacket separately since it also has a good breathability. So, by using this associated with a good wind proof jacket, you will get a great versatility for the fall and winter activities.

my husband loves it
December 29, 2010

i did a lot of research into various fleece jackets before deciding on this one as a present for my husband. this is the first patagonia item we have ever tried and he loves it. The grey color is really nice. the fit is slightly on the small side but more true to size than i expected based on other reviews i read (he is 6ft and 200lbs with wide shoulders, and the XL is a perfect fit with plenty of room for a light sweater underneath). the best part is the stitching throughout the jacket and the side and sleeve panels which make this more unique than some of the other similar fleece jackets. i am planning to buy one for myself!

great warmth to weight
May 17, 2012

When the package arrived it was so light I was concerned that maybe I had made a mistake. No mistake. This has rapidly become my most versatile piece of outdoor clothing(and lounging). Super comfortable, layers well, almost too warm in 40-50 degree light activity, washes up great. Fits trim which is increasingly hard to find. The lack of wind proofing is a plus for me. When I need that I will layer under a shell. The only problem is it is so comfortable I have already left it on for some chores that were better suited to Carhartt canvas. No worse for the experience though. At the sale price this is a great deal.

Great Spring or Fall purchase
February 05, 2013

Coming back to school after Winter break I realized that I needed a light weight jacket that I could wear with pretty much anything. I purchased this in black and large. I'm 5'10" neck: 16.5, sleeve:33-34, waist: 34, and chest 42. It fits best around my shoulders which is what I was mostly looking for, but it's maybe designed for someone a few inches taller than me. This is not to say that the jacket looks awkward, it looks great. Plus people love to touch it because of how soft it is. The most important part though is that it keeps me warm even below freezing, just not in high wind conditions.

Lightweight Insulator
December 27, 2010

I've owned the R2 jacket for a couple weeks now for winter in NY and it has served to be a great base layer. I have yet to take it to the mountains but I anticipate great performance. The best thing about this jacket is that it's lightweight. Sometimes you don't even notice it's there! You just get unhampered comfort without the weight of other fleece jackets. Wear it under one of your jackets and you're ready for the cold. Top notch product all the way

Warm fleece
March 18, 2010

I believe Patagonia may be the greatest fleece brand in the world. Like other Patagonia fleece, R2 is high-quality and warm. In the winter I don't have to worry about cold weather. But I have to wear a windproof jacket outside it for stopping wind.

Great Jacket!!!
December 15, 2009

I am very pleased with the R2. It works well as a layer (great ventilation) under a shell and as a jacket. I've owned many fleeces and this one, by far, is the most comfortable and best looking. Unlike many other fleece designs, the sleeves are not extraordinarily long. I will use around town, skiing, and summer backpacking.

Perfect, Awesome, Best Fleece

Bought this jacket for my dad and he loved it! He's over 60, so the look of this jacket was very youthful and he felt cool in it. fabric is warm, bright, fits well, and will surely be a "light" winter coat because it was SO warm!

Nice piece of fleece. There's definitely room to move in this, maybe too much as far as sizing goes, you might want to order a size smaller for layering under a jacket.

Seems like it will be warmer than my old R2
August 09, 2010

My old R2 is getting a little long in the tooth, so I took the opportunity to buy a new one at a good price. The new one seems more substantial than my old one, giving the impression that it'll be warmer. Unfortunately I won't be able to test this until the weather get's cold. It's still very breathable - won't provide any kind of wind protection on it's own but will be ideal under a shell.

This is another great product from Patagonia. It has a very slim fit so keep that in mind when purchasing. I'm 6' 175 lbs and the large fits well as long as I only have a thin layer on underneath. The jacket is definitely not windproof, but offers great insulation under a shell.

Super jacket
December 05, 2010

I have had my R2 for about four or five years now. It is without question a first class jacket for it's intended use and purpose. For those who have posted reviews complaining that it is not windproof, suffice to say you didn't bother to actually find out what you were buying before you purchased it. It is not windproof, nor is it intended to be so or advertised as windproof. For the person who complained that it won't work with just a T-shirt in cold weather, suffice to say that there really isn't anything that's going to keep you warm once you sweat up a cotton T-shirt in the winter. This coat is an excellent insulating layer which does a superior job of keeping you warm while active on chilly days. (I define active as something more than standing around outside in the cold, or getting in and out of the car to run errands.) I wear mine regularly on days down into the upper 20's with just a medium weight wicking turtleneck under it and am never uncomfortable while hiking, backpacking or taking the dog for long walks. If it's particularly windy, or a bit cooler than this jacket is comfortable for, I throw a lightweight Gore-Tex shell over it to block the wind and retain a bit more heat. Suffice to say, I can walk the dog for a couple of hours on a 25 degree day in this jacket with nothing more than a wicking turtleneck under it and a G-T rain shell over it and be plenty warm enough. The jacket shows little wear, even after four or five years. Seams and zippers are all rock solid and have given me no problems whatsoever. It has retained its loft through many washings.

Excellent fleece
January 11, 2011

OK, here's the disclaimer, I've got three of the first generation jackets but have no hesitation at looking at the updated models as possible purchases. This is very nice warm piece of clothing for active and casual wear. It's very breathable so a wind breaking layer is needed in a stiff cold wind. If you're looking for a medium weight, very breathable, well-fitting fleece look no further. I'm 5'8", 155 lbs and a medium fits very well and is form fitting. I'd describe it as a medium weight second layer with essentially no bulk. An accurate description would be that this is the next step up from the capilene series, a capilene 5 if you will. The one thing I really liked about the previous generation was the raglan sleeves and see the updated model has standard sleeves - I hope it fits as well.

all other fleece is now obsolete!
April 26, 2011

This is what I wrote about the R2: "This is an amazing jacket. When you first pick it up, you will be surprised how light it is and doubt that it will do much, as in work as an insulator. But then, you put it on, and it is as if it is a heated garment. Oh my! I had given my wife a fuzzy hoody made out of similar feeling material and wondered why Patagonia did not make anything so sensuous feeling for men, then this! It not only feels great but it works really well. It is almost too efficient to wear around the house as a sweater and almost too efficient to wear under a soft shell out on a morning bike ride with freezing temperatures. The other wonderful part is the fit! I am 172 lbs. and 6'2" and most Patagonia jackets have been too short in the arms and too short in the torso, as well as too much material in the body. Well, this slim fit got it right, sleeves long enough, torso tight enough and long enough in a Large. I have ordered a second one, because they will probably stop making it, or sell out. As a disclaimer, I have never seen or touched the previous R2 jacket that this one replaces, but this new one makes me glad I waited. Finally, Patagonia recognizes that there are tall people in the market. I had a thermal pro high loft in a large tall from another company, and it was great except the cut was for someone with an eighteen inch neck and a bottom heavy torso. Thanks Patagonia!" This is written about the R3 HiLoft: Well, the R3 is the same except a denser and therefore a bit heavier, but that equates to warmth and still light in weight. I personally did not like the asymmetry of a pocket on one side, so I carefully cut the pocket off and now it looks Great! Hey Patagonia: Why not a pocket on both sides? and why not one with a hood (like you offer the Ladies?). Patagonia lists the R2 as a Slim fit and the R3 Hi Loft as a Regular fit, but I can not feel a difference and the tape measure tells me they are cut just alike in size. I have been wearing the R3 Hi Loft over a merino wool sweater down to twenty degrees F, and it does just fine! This new R2 and R3 Hi Loft is so senuous and works so well, it makes all other fleece obsolete."

January 19, 2013

The jacket fits well. I am 5' 10" and 167 lbs and the jacket provides just enough room for a base and/or mid layer. It is exceptionally warm, especially considering how thin it is. Works great on those chilly days when you are very active and want the ability to zip up or down, depending on the activity level. Very satisfied.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance

Pretty much flawless
January 15, 2008

First off, it's fantastic. When I first got it, I was worried about how warm it was going to be because it is SO light, but it turns out it's quite warm. The R2 fabric's fantastically fluffy. The sleeves are sleek and long (I have gorilla arms), so they slip into other jackets and shells well. Get it, you'll be warm and look like a stud.

wonderful

Very Nice
November 11, 2009

Not only is it warm, but one of the most breathable lightweight jackets on the market. The newly added R1 fleece combined with the high-loft R2 just blows me away, so much better than the old model. It is so light, you might forget you are wearing it, if it weren't for how warm it is. Just be warned, this jacket is not intended for winds by itself, so make sure you have a shell over, just like most fleece jackets the wind will go right through it. But thats because of the breathability, with the r4 you might over heat. I would definitely recommend this jacket.

I just received the R2 and I love it already. It is much more fitted than the R4. It is very soft and warm. I recommend this to anyone who wants a nice mid-layer under a shell or a by itself in a cool day.

so soft!!

If you are looking for a jacket will keep you warm anytime, this is the one to buy. I recommend it as a base layer because wind can penetrate it very well.

Hmm, I like it, but...
May 01, 2011

I really loved an R2 jacket I purchased a few years ago. Since it was getting worn out, I purchased a new one this spring. It seems that the new version of R2 jacket is slightly lighter than the older one. It is cozy warm. But I caution you that the size is now about 1 inch larger all around (neck - sleeve - height - chest/waist) than the old one...

Great Fleece
December 12, 2012

I grabbed this jacket at a great deal during the post Thanksgiving sales. I didn't really know what to expect from it. After the first wear, I could tell I had made a great purchase though! The jacket is very light, soft, and comfortable. Even though it is light and fairly thin, it does a great job keeping you warm. It is very breathable though, so you can feel the wind through it. However, a wind proof layer would fix that. It's ability to breathe is awesome though. I haven't tried it out on a hike yet, but I'm sure it would do a great job of letting out your body heat as you stay active. I'm 6'3" and 215 lbs, and the XL fits me perfect. The arms are pretty long, which I really like.

Pros: Great design

R2 Perfection
March 01, 2010

The R2 is a great fleece that is extremely comfortable and warm. It fits me perfectly and was designed really well. It also is light weight, but still affords a good warmth. A great fleece and well worth its value. Plus, it's comfortable for office work, too !!

Comfort, function & warmth
January 18, 2005

The R2 is a great every day jacket. By itself it is perfect for 40 degree mornings and evenings in Northern California, often most winter days as well. The side pockets are huge with the same comfortable lining throughout the jacket. The one drawback for me, and the only reason I rated it good intstead of great, is the chest pocket is a little small and high, which is where I often keep a phone or money-clip.

December 10, 2011

Love it! Breathes just enough that it's not too warm or hot, but nice enough to keep you warm. super soft, super breathable, air cuts right through, super toasty under a shell , REALLY LIGHT, but uh oh, where's the waist cinch? come on Patagonia!! i love your jacket, but no waist cinch? i've gotten over it though. first new fleece in 6 years, definitely not disappointed.

Another great Jacket from PATAGONIA

I just received my R2 jacket and I love it! It fits just right and so soft. This will be my new go to fleece for this winter.

Great light jacket
December 09, 2004

Love Patagonia's R2 men's jacket. It is a great layering weight for 3 season use. I can't seem to take it off but won't get real results until using it in spring/summer/fall backpacking.

Warm and comfortable
January 17, 2005

What a great jacket. Warm comfortable and easy to clean. I wear it everyday. Even inside the condo. I really like the extra material under the arms to allow movement without binding.

Runs large compared to Patagonia R1 pullover
October 10, 2012

I bought this jacket in XL becaues my patagonia R1 pullover fit so well in XL. Unfortunately, this jacket is to large. It sags under the arms and is just loose all over for being a slim fit. I dont know if the R1 runs small or this runs large, but I feel that this jacket runs large. I am 6-1 and 215 and it wouldn't work for me.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value, Cons: runs large

Not oversized like most jackets
February 03, 2012

I ordered this jacket for my husband, after I saw my son wearing it. I was very pleased with the beautiful color and softness of the fabric. This Patagonia polar fleece fits true to size and not oversized like most jackets. I ordered a M but will return for the size L.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, beautiful color, Cons: Cost

Extremely satisfied
November 06, 2009

I've been a believer in Patagonia outer wear for some time. All of my fly fishing gear is by Patagonia. The R2 jacket meets and or exceeds my expectations. Light weight, very warm and very functional. For the price in active outer wear, I would highly recommend to anyone.

The perfect weight
February 15, 2009

This jacket is exceptional. It's amazingly warm for a light jacket. On 45 degree days I'll wear it over a t-shirt if there isn't too much wind and be totally comfortable. It's slim enough to fit under a jacket and packs well. The cut is athletic but it wears just slightly short on me (the large), but is otherwise true to size. Highly recommended.

Great!

A classic from Patagonia. Light and snug fitting. Good as a layer under a shell, or by itself on warmer days.

Patagonia never disappoints

and the R2 Jacket is no exception. Perfect everyday fleece. Infact, I live in mine. Slim fit, but a base layer works great underneath. I bought one for myself and for my father.

Excellent!

Very lightweight,great jacket at a great price! Jacket received in a timely manner and seems to be of high quality. I will use around town, skiing, and summer backpacking.

warm but runs large
November 03, 2004

Hi. I bought the jacket a month ago, and I have to say that it is amazingly warm for as light as it is. However, the jacket runs very large in the body. It is not an athletic cut by any means. It could easily accomodate a full down vest underneath the jacket with room to spare. I personally wish there was more elastic in the cuffs and around the waist.

great purchase
January 21, 2008

I haven't had my jacket long, but for the most part it seems to be great. It looks great, super soft, and will keep you warmer than you expect for being so light. If I lost it, I would buy another.

great jacket
September 20, 2007

Just what you'de expect from Patagonia, this jacket packs tight, has a great warmth to weight ratio, bomber construction, and works great alone or in a layering system. I use it for everything from an early season midlayer for skiing to fall belay duty insulator. Recommended.

great everyday jacket!

Quality at last!
March 10, 2011

I've had fleece garments since their introduction. Over the last several years I've seen the products use a poorer quality fleece and have a baggy fit. This is great for walking around town or driving your car but for effective layering for active movement a better fit is required. This jacket fits great, has that nice air trapping fleecy fleece and stretches well. You get what you pay for and the R2 Jacket is worth every penny.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance

Very impressed overall!!
January 23, 2005

The Patagonia R2 jacket that I had purchased as a gift for a friend of mine is perfect for wearing under a warmer/thicker jacket or even by itself on warmer days. He just loves it. I couldn't have asked for a better price on such a quality jacket, even the shipment was fast.

Good product
April 02, 2005

Good jacket, great for FLORIDA temperatures, looks good, will do well under a heavy coat during the winter.

Great cold-weather protection.
January 01, 2006

I bought this for my son who lives in Japan and complains of the cold winter weather. I have a Patagonia R2 jacket that I have been very happy with on winter mountain hikes and snowshoeing, so thought my son might like this jacket -- he loves it and says he does not feel the cold when wearing it.
