The plushiest of them all, the Patagonia Retro-X Cardigan for women is the fleece jacket you'll reach for as soon as your ears and cheeks feel that certain nip in the air, and pumpkin pie lattes appear on the drive-through coffee shack menus. Not only is this Patagonia fleece plush, it's also windproof -- thanks to its ½-inch pile Synchilla fleece exterior and its wind-blocking nylon lining. A hood pulls up to protect your ears as you stroll the aspen-lined park paths, and the zippered pockets offer a cozy refuge for hands once that latte gets finished. The windflap behind the full-length front zipper seals in body heat, and the binding at the hood, cuffs and hem snug in the openings to seal out icy gusts. Side panels help give it a shapely silhouette under all that furrrrr. Whether you're visiting your favorite drive-through shack on the way to the mountain, or you're hoofing over to a pal's place for butternut soup and a loaf of crusty bread, you can count on the Patagonia Women's Retro-X Cardigan to keep you cozy. Just be prepared for a whole lot of hugging and petting from your friends.

Wanted to love it, but not quite right
February 28, 2013

I bought this jacket with high expectations, I love patagonia fleeces and jackets (I have an R1, R2, Retool snap tee, better sweater, nanopuff, Primo etc..) however, this one fell a little short of my expectations. The overall fit was consistant with the rest of patagonia sizing, I where a L in all they're jackets (except the Primo) and the Retro X fit well with the exception on length, it could have been 2 inches longer. My biggest complaint was the color, I ordered the natural which looks fairly white on the website but in real life its much more of a darkish cream and because its so fuzzy it looks like they sheared a sheep and made it a jacket. That being said, it was fuzzier than I had anticipated (guess I should have gotten the jacket instead of the cardigan). Other than the length and color, I loved this jacket, the inside is a smooth finish, not fleece which makes it easy to layer. I tried it on over a R1 pull over and it was a nice snug fit. I would recommend this Jacket to anyone that has a shorter torso and wants a very warm, fuzzy jacket.

Pros: Build quality, Ease of use, Cons: color different than what it looks like online
