Description

Classic to the core and oh-so-soft and cozy, the Patagonia Women's Retro-X Vest will look awesome when worn with a rugged pair of Carhartts on your annual steelhead fishing trip. Made from ¼-inch pile Synchilla® fleece on the outside, a windproof breathable PEF® barrier in the middle and soft brushed polyester lining inside, this fleece vest will wick moisture and keep you warm and cozy. Stylishly quilted Supplex® nylon panels on the side and on the outside of the stand-up collar help reduce bulk and give you a slim silhouette for a look that is lovely enough to wear into town. The full front zip is backed by a wind flap to help seal in body heat and 2 front zippered pockets are lined with brushed polyester mesh for softness on your hands. Tuck your punch card in a pocket, pull on your waders and your Patagonia Retro-X Vest for women and go put some meat on the table the old-school way.

Perfect Addition
April 03, 2013

I wanted one of this all winter and finally bought one around Christmas time. It is the perfect addition to any shirt and just the right amount of warmth. I would recommend ordering a size up if you want a looser fit or have a larger chest. I normally wear a XS. I ordered a S but with my chest, would have liked a M as well.

Functional yet stylish
January 26, 2013

The retro x vest is amazingly warm, comfortable AND stylish! Not your run of the mill boxy, shapeless vest...the slim fit is very flattering and runs just a tad small. The front hits the top of my belt line while the back is slightly longer at hip length. As reference, I'm 5.4, 116 lbs, purchased small and can probably wear 2-3 thin layers or 1 sweater underneath. After reading other reviews was considering a medium but glad went with small. Vest is slightly stiff at first but definitely softens with use. The retro x vest is a must have and totally worth the price!

Vest is great in so many ways but fit is too small. I always wear a SM in Patagonia, and have a number of other jackets in SM. This vest in SM seems as if it is an extra SM. Huge fan of Patagonia, their stuff lasts forever.

I really like the style of this vest and all the color choices. Inside is a bit stiff and it's very fitted and short in the torso. I would go up a size.

This vest is up for anything. Whether is braving the windy weather (wind proof) or just to look cute- this vest will give you a helping hand. I wear mine to class and on hikes. It serves multiple purposes.

Wonderful
March 01, 2009

It looks and feels GREAT, and kept me warm enough yesterday when the temps were in the upper 30's. I'm packing it for my trip next week to Santa Fe, where the day and night temps fluctuate more than 30 degrees!

I was very happy with this vest. It was what I was looking for
May 26, 2009

The vest was beautiful. Sleek and fitting , but also warm and comfortable. I liked the retro look and was very happy with it. I hope they continue to make this vest.

Wanna get all the colors now!!!

I live near Chicago and you know how brutal winter can be. It kept me so warm under my coat. Great on a chilly day too!

I bought the retro-x vest in the espresso color and I loved it so much I had to buy the patagonia retro-x jacket (in espresso, of course). I am usually a size small, but got the medium and it is perfect. You will not be dissapointed with this vest & jacket!

Vest looks good, fits good, but it's stiff as a board. Hoping it will soften w/ wear and washing.

great vest...both fashionable and functional. I was debating between medium and large. I was glad I went with a large because it was just long enough.

My daughter loves the vest so much that I am buying one for her older sister. Nice fit, and warm.

Great Purchase

I really like the color, style and fit. I am pretty small and this design is perfect with room to layer underneath. I live in a So. California- so do not need really heavy warmth but wore it in Yosemite with temperatures around mid 30's. Just perfect.

Nice Cool Weather Addition
January 11, 2012

This vest is great for cool Fall or brisk Winter days. Great for layering. Is does have a very fitted design so size up from your usual size. I bought a L and had to return for an XL which fits perfectly (I'm 5'10" 165 lbs). Great design with lots of function

Pros: Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: very slim fitting

I've been wanting this vest forever and finally got it. The fit is snug/slim, so if you like loose fitting clothes, I would recommend maybe a size up. Super warm and great looking!

I got this for my daughter-in-law for Christmas, and she put it on today. Said it was just what she was looking for, because it's light, but still warm. And she looks great in it.

Sylish and versatile. You can dress it up and down. Great color. Very nice stitching and side detail. Great mix of materials, fuzzy and silky. I bought it as a gift but my daughter wants one also so I am ordering another one for her. I am considering it for myself also. Greatf for sport or with smart jeans ortroisers. Ideal for layering in al types of weather

A little too stiff
May 12, 2010

This vest had a nice fit, and the style was good. The collar was so stiff that I knew I'd never wear it.
