It was the best fleece in the world!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
Seriously. I spent way too time much research into selecting my next fleece. The R2 has the best weight to feature ratio. It's super soft and versatile. I wear it around the camp fire in the summer, on the trail in the fall and under my shell in the winter on the colder days. I'm tall and skinny (6'4" - 175 lbs) and the Large fits perfect. I've put about a year of abuse into it and it's still looks new!
Layer Or Standalone
Works both as a layer under a shell on cold ski days or as a standalone fleece in the shoulder seasons. It strikes a nice balance within Patagonia's line in terms of thickness, providing tremendous flexibility. It's very comfortable and the medium fits my 5'10"/150 lb. frame perfectly. The Polartec fabric is very soft and comes in a number of great colors. I opted for Bandana Blue but would have been equally happy with red, green, or black. Because it's made by Patagonia, I know it'll last for years. Highly recommended.

This fleece is wonderful. The fuzzy feel adds warmth and comfort. I have the red and call in my "elmo" jacket. Warm, but not very windproof. This is a part of my main ski system, over a 200 weight icebreaker long sleeve and under an arcteryx sidewinder sv shell. Very warm under a shell. Does well as a stand alone, too. Just a warning, when you wear this jacket, people will come up and feel it. It has happened to me many times. So, if you like fuzzy, warm things, and don't mind the occasional back rub, this is an excellent piece.
Sorry to dissent
Thought this fleece was just ok, sort of had a hard time finding a place for it in the layering scheme. Might be for a little too specific of a purpose for my liking. I think it would be great for layering under a shell, but I found the R1 to be just as warm, and substantially more windproof. I know it is designed to be layered, but plenty of other pieces out there can act as a warm layer and a stand alone, breathable, wind resistant fleece.
Best of the best
This thing rocks! perfect fit very warm and very breathable. Throw a shell over it and you have a great backcountry system. I like the r2 over the r3 because the r2 can be layered with a puffy and a shell in winter while I think the r3 would be a little too warm for that use. Pairs great with a marmot ROM shell.
Great 200 weight Fleece. It's lighter than my Khumbu,but I like the fit of the R2.
Perfect for my recent trip to Los Angeles , where it was cool in the mornings and evenings, and on my return back to louisiana where it was 45 degrees and cold, this Fleece kept me cozy and compfy. Lots of compliments on the Dill color I got. Stoked!
My biggest complaint - it just won't wear out! I have been wearing my R2 for over ten years now and I want a new jacket - but I need a reason. And the R2 is still going strong! I live in Colorado and wear my jacket probably 10 months out of the year...as casual or a layer! Everything from hikes and snow tubing to shoveling the driveway. It is amazingly lightweight, wicks incredibly well, and compresses for trips - and I have never had a problem with zippers not working or seams ripping.
Patagonia R2 Fleece
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
I gave this as a gift and it fits and looks great. 6'4" and 210 the Large fits great. Worn either as a layer under a shell, or alone this is perfect.
Love my R2 fleece!

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is a great layer to have. It works well in fall or spring as a stand alone piece. In the winter skiing I tend to get overheated by down and synthetic insulated jackets. This somehow has the perfect amount of breathability and keeps me at a consistent temperature when coupled with a Gore Tex shell on cold days (15 degrees or below).
Perfect fit, great feel, Awesome!
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
6'1", #210, 42-43 jacket, and I bought a large which is form-fitting and is perfect. I alternate this with a few other jackets as daily commuters here in the Wasatch, and am never cold! Love this jacket!

6'4" and 210#, size 44L suit coat, tried on a Nanopuff in XL and it felt a little snug, any suggestions on sizing for the R2 fleece jacket, XL or XXL? Thanks!
Per your question, I am a very similar build as you: 6'4" @ ~200 lbs, with long arms and same coat size. I wear size large in most Patagonia jackets because the sleeves tend to run long. However, I bought and returned the R2 fleece jacket in size L. It seemed too unflatteringly-tight and short through the torso. I didn't try the XL but I would think the XL would fit us better -- start there.
I didn't care for the stretch side panels and fleece texturing of the R2. FWIW, I bought this Norrona fleece in size XXL (sizing is European) and found it to be a great fit for my proportions and kept it. http://www.backcountry.com/norrna-trollveggen-warm2.0-fleece-jacket-mens
I am 6"1, #210, and wear a 42-43 suit coat. I bought the large and the fit is perfect! its form-fitting,which is what i was after with this piece. I would probably go XL since your chest is bigger than mine. An XL would not drown me; i wanted this to fit tighter.
Softer than expected
This Item arrived safely. It is in very good condition. Thank you!
I'm 6'and 176 lbs.
I wear in a size medium.
It's perfect for me.
Wearing this jacket, I'm going to enjoy winter hiking.
Highly Breathable and Comfortable Fleece
The purpose of this jacket is to provide mid layer warmth under a shell in Winter or in my case to provide highly breathable outerwear in the summer evenings in the Alpine. I traded in my Nano Puff for the R2 because frankly the Nano Puff doesn't breath and I would quickly get sweaty/clammy if I was in cool temps (i.e., 50's to low 60's). The R2 is more versatile. In cool temps I can have it as an outer layer, knowing that any significant heat build up will easily escape before I sweat, in colder weather I can throw on a wind shirt/shell over it to block any wind.
So no pit zips here so if I go w/ TNF which...
So no pit zips here so if I go w/ TNF which fleece will do.
You really don't need pit zips in a fleece mate.
Patagonia R2 Fleece Jacket
The Patagonia R2 Fleece Jacket is super soft on the outside but not as much warmth as I expected I liked the better sweater weight better but this is still awesome for a little warmer weather.
I'm looking for a spring/fall type of...
I'm looking for a spring/fall type of fleece. Something light and not too warm. I live in KY and temps are fairly moderate during these seasons but can get chilly at night. Is this jacket too warm for this purpose? (temps I have in mind are 50-70 during the day and 40-60 at night)
Depending on how you personally deal with temperature, the R2 may be too warm. If you're normally a cold person, it may be perfect. If you're normally warm, take a look at the R1 series or something similar.
in a location with more humidity (ky), i think this would probably be the right choice. I'm happy in the southwest with the R1. if you want the jacket for aerobic activity, the R1 would be a better choice and it moves with you better.

Im 5'7 and 150 lbs, should I go with the the small or medium?
I would think Small would have a fitted fit and Medium a relaxed fit. You are right between sizes IMO.
I agree with Mike. I'm 5'8" 145-150lbs and I usually wear Patagonia jackets in a size small, but they definitely have a more fitted look. I go with medium for baselayers, because they end up being uncomfortably tight.
I really like it.
I really like it.
