    Extremely Disappointing Jacket!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I'm a big fan of Patagonia outwear, and wear my Down Sweater and multiple Synchilla fleeces often. Those are fantastic and highly functional pieces, and I was expecting the same from the Retro-X jacket, but boy was I wrong!

    When I received the jacket I was surprised by how much structure the jacket has for a fleece, or what some other reviewers are referring to as its stiffness. I'm guessing that the stiffness is due to the windproofing, and it makes the jacket feel more like a wool or leather jacket than a fleece. It feels comfortable, it just may be different than what you're expecting.

    My problem with the jacket is that it does not breathe at all. Of course a fleece that is windproof won't breathe like a regular fleece, but wearing this jacket is like wearing a sauna suit. After walking a couple blocks in this jacket I'm sweating like crazy, and I've never experienced this before in anything besides really cheap junky nylon jackets. The only way to stop sweating is to open the zipper, but then I'm cold, especially my base layers are wet from the sweat.

    So when wearing this jacket, my choice is either drenched in sweat, or freezing my you know what off. $200 down the drain.

    Great Fleece

    Great look and fit

    Wore it in to work today and got a lot of compliments on it. It was just below 30 degrees and i was very comfortable outside. Great product, would recommend to anyone debating.

    Backcountry.com is always a pleasure to deal with.

    Tough Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: M

    Hello All.

    Have owned this jacket for about 9 months and have enjoyed every bit of it. The experiences with this jacket have been causal cold nights out on the town. Also cold weather commuting it has served has a excellent jacket for keeping out the wind and shedding light snow. I have used it a handful of times xc skiing and shoeing, but with the aerobic exercise its ventilation is poor. Agree with the "boxy" fit comments.

    Enjoy!

    Um, No thanks

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size

    Received this and the R3 fleece jackets for Christmas. Love the R3! Super comfy. The Classic Retro X on the other hand--like wearing cardboard on the inside with a brillo pad outside. Just not for me so I returned it. Looks very nice but just not comfortable for me.

    Love It

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    This jacket was perfect for what I was looking for. It's windproof and warm which is great on those cold windy nights. It's perfect for walking around town or on a weekend camping trip. A couple downsides i do want to point out; it doesn't have a draw chord so sometimes can be a bit drafty in the back. It also isn't for an extended backpacking trip because it doesn't pack small nor is it super light. Still is a quality retro piece from Patagonia.

    Loved it, but oddly it "split" on arm.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I got this for my husband a few years ago, he LOVED receiving it. He wore it a handful of times. Oddly enough the fabric on the arm of the jacket split/ripped. We have no idea how it happened, so it's been hanging in the closet since.

    Sizes didn't work for me

      I tried a large and it was too big in the waist and then a medium and it was too tight in the chest. It's a very nice jacket but didn't work for my tall skinny frame (6'2", 180 lbs) so I returned it and am searching for another style jacket.

      Warm!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size

      This is a very warm fleece! The fleece isn't lined all the way through the interior but it is still very warm. I love the look of the jacket and get complemented all the time. The chest pocket was great to keep my phone in while I could keep my hands warm in the other pockets.

      nice, but runs big

        i got this for my bf-- should've known to size down w/ patagonia. he is 6' and about 170lbs. the L was too big, should've gone M. we ended up returning it, although it's a nice jacket-- fuzzy!

        NOT soft and fuzzy

          Yes, it's really windproof.

          Yes, it's made of recycled materials.

          But no, it's not soft. The Patagonia R3 fleece and the Mountain Hardwear Monkey Man look similar to the Retro-X but unlike the Retro-X, they are SOFT AND FUZZY. However, this jacket isn't. The jacket feels like the yellow insulation materials they put in buildings/houses. It's not soft. I'm in college and a couple of girls literally ran up to me to feel my jacket, but leave disappointed in it's roughness. Times like that I wished I chose the R3 or the Monkey Man.

          But considering that the Retro-X is windproof unlike its counterparts, it's nice. But keep in mind that the jacket feels a bit stiff even after wearing it for a couple of months and I don't think it'll get any less stiff because of its construction with the inner windproof layer design.



          But the jacket is very warm and cuddly looking, but beware it's not soft and fuzzy like how I was hoping.

          One of the Finest Made Product Ever

            I bought one of these jackets around 1993. It was my main jacket for winter for many years. I left it at a new years party and my friend refused to return it conveniently because he love it so much.

            This jacket is one of the greatest jackets ever designed. It has a thicker fleece exterior but it keeps you incredibly warm due to the wind-proof membrane. Pockets are large.

            Patagonia makes quality products that are durable and this is one of the best.

            I'm glad to have my new one for this winter.

            warm, wind resistant

              The wind blocking layer really works and the jacket is quite warm. i would call it more of a casual/around town/maybe a day hike fleece. It's not the most packable, i wouldn't take it in the backcountry with me. i could see wearing it as a thick midlayer under a shell on the ski hill tho. All in all, i bought it for casual wear so i am happy with it. The vest is a good option too.

              Bought over a year ago

                First off, I'm 6'4 190-200lbs (depending if its the holidays) and i fit very well in size large. I bought the black retro x with the grey pocket.

                Used this from camping and hiking to everyday use in the wind, rain sleet and snow up here in the pacific northwest. Never has let me down. People have commented on it on several occasions and have even gotten a few random people asking if they can feel the fabric.

                Over the past year and a half of owning the jacket the only wear and tear is under the elbows where the fleece has gotten a little matted while driving or resting my arms. Does not affect the integrity whatsoever. And can be remedied by rubbing your hands over it for a few seconds to kind of rough it back up.

                I see myself using this for a long time.

                Looks Great!

                  He loved it. Gift for the BF...and i was uncertain about size as Patagonia usually runs a bit small. He normally wears an XL so i was in a quandry..but the XL fit fine. Plenty big (he can wear a heavy shirt or two layers under it).As stated in previous posts, it is looser at the bottom, but in my case that was what i wanted...many of the snap tees i have ended up with because they are too tight on him (too big on me).I would say this Patagonia item was pretty true to size. Thanks to those who helped me on the chats on this one trying to figure out size. its a KEEPER!!!!
