    A light, compressible fleece for high mountain objectives.

    Late March means three things: corn skiing followed by chillin' and grillin' in the parking lot by three in the afternoon, and since you're wearing your Patagonia Men's R2 Fleece Jacket, you'll have the stretch and breathability you need on the skintrack, warmth for the descent, and the plush comfort you want as you let the legs relax over a brat and beer back at the car. Made with Polartec Thermal Pro grid fleece, the R2 provides excellent stretch and warmth as it wicks moisture and breathes throughout variable temperatures. Patagonia put Polartec Power Grid fabric on the R2's side panels and underarms for an improved fit and enhanced mobility, then treated it with Polygiene permanent odor control, so you can get after it day-after-day without it taking on any funk.

    This jacket is a little polarizing. As some reviews have commented the sizing on this piece is a bit odd, but your usage and body-type will largely determine whether this is a good or bad type of odd. If you have a long torso and struggle to find slim fit outdoor clothing buy this before they're gone. If you're a strapping robustly built person, you might want to look elsewhere. I'm 6'1" and 160lbs, and really appreciate the extra length and slim fit of the medium. It fits very much like a long sweater. I can see it working especially well as a layering piece inside of waders or bib-style snow clothing.

    Last thing I'll add is that I *think* the R2 jacket has changed over the years. I bought this one to replace what I seem to remember was an R2 that I bought about a decade ago. After a long, productive life it decided to retire on a recent trip to Mongolia. That R2 was more of a medium to heavy weight fleece jacket. This R2 is more of a light-weight active piece. So if you're like me and have a little more sparkle in your hair since you bought your last R2, know what you're getting into.

    Great layering piece

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

    Will be a staple cold-weather skiing mid-layer. Probably won't spend a day on lift-served slopes without this under my shell or in the backcountry without this in my backpack.
    I tend to run warm--with this and a ski shell, I'll be good on-resort down to frigid temps.
    It is a slim fit, and a little constrictive in the underarms, but the material is stretchy and seems to breathe well.

    Sizing is strange

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium

    Sizing is inconsistent with other Patagonia products. I wear a men’s medium (5’7” 175’, 40-41 in chest) in the R1, Capilene, Polartec Alpha insulated jacked, and Nano Puff Hooded Jacket. This jacket is listed as men’s but the medium is several inches too small in the shoulders, over 4-5 inches too long in the sleeves, and overall far too tight to wear with even a base-layer. I checked to make sure it wasn’t a women’s as the shoulders appear narrower than the waist but it is listed as men’s. Color and material seems nice.

    How does this compare in warmth & fit to the R1? The R1 hoody is great but slim fitting so hard to wear over other layers, will this R2 easily fit over other layers? Or can you recommend something warm and breathable to wear over the r1 hoody on those brutal cold days?

    Best Answer

    Jeff,

    If you're looking to wear something over an R1 I would get a Nano Air. Warmer than fleece but still breathable, and very awesome.

    The R2 will layer a little easier than the R1 since it's smoother on the inside than the R1 waffle grid. Hopefully that helps?

    What is the claimed fleece weight on the R2? Is this comparable to the Arcteryx Fortrez?

    Hey Mtnbikerwyo,



    Patagonia does not give a specific fleece weight on their jackets but I would agree that the R2 Fleece Jacket (6.1 oz Polartec Thermal Pro) is comparable in weight/warmth to the Arc'teryx Fortrez Fleece Jacket (230 g/m² midweight). If anything, the Fortrez will be a little warmer. Feel free to shoot me any additional questions on Fleece Jackets.
