Make Patagonia's R2 your go-to jacket this winter.

Mmm…stretchy. And flattering. We're guessing that's what will go through your head when you zip into the Patagonia Women's R2 Jacket. This midweight, breathable jacket feels warm on November nights, and layers under a shell during mid-winter ski-slope attacks. Stretch panels under the arms and at the collar provide an increased range of motion. The R2 Jacket's angled chest yoke gives a slimming look, and the streamlined cut minimizes bulk.

fuzzy and warm

I bought this fleece to cover a wide range of uses, from hanging out on the couch in my (often frigid) apartment to around the campfire to low-key mountaineering summit attempts. At this point, I've had the fleece for about a week and have only tested it in less-technical situations.

Here's what I love: this fleece is really soft. I like the zip pockets. I like the chest pocket. The fit around the body is perfect (I wear a size 2 or 4 in dresses and I bought the small). The weight is good for 50-60 degrees when sitting still in the shade and worn over a t-shirt, assuming no wind. And did I mention the softness?

Why I only gave it 4 stars: both the sleeves and the torso are just a little short. Granted, I'm 5'10" so my arms are a lot longer than the average woman's. I could have gone up a size but given the lack of waist-cinching mechanism, closeness around the body was more important. Also, there's a lot of extra fabric in the armpits and upper arm area. The nice thing about this is you can lift your arms up without exposing your belly, but it feels strange at first.

All in all, I'd give this one a 5 if the torso and sleeves were an inch longer.

awesome jacket

I got a large (mostly wear a medium) because I wanted it to fit a little big. I'm glad I went a size up. The jacket is great, very comfy, great color, looks great wearing on mountain or around town. Have only washed it once, but it washed well, no pilling or matting.

This offers a great fit and great performance for the gym, travel and/or going out to dinner. I live in these. So far they wash well.

Patagonia R2 Fleece Jacket

Bought this for my daughter for Christmas. Still had a great selection the week before Christmas. Free shipping and arrived before Christmas. It is exactly what the site said it would be. The sizing was easy and the jacket is great. She wears it almost daily. I have ordered other things as well and the prices are great especially with the free shipping offer. Will buy more from Back Country.

Patagonia R2 - best sweater yet

I've been relying on my R2 sweater jackets to get me through everything from hiking to casual office wear. I've got multiple colors and they're stylish enough to get by with skirts. The weight is light in bulk, but cozy and perfect for layering - like today in the Sierra Nevada foothills. The pockets are wonderful. Love the subtle padding on the wrists, too. Frankly, it's the details that set the R2 apart from all the other jackets that seem to have flooded the market these years. I also work out (weights, upper body) and this jacket is NOT constricted across the chest. It's just a great jacket all 'round.

On this wesite, the Patagonia R2 is bright red. On other websites, including, the color is completely different--a more auburn red. What is the true color of the fleece? Bright red as pictured here, or rosy red pictured elsewhere??

Responded on

Molly, the image on the Patagonia web site is a more accurate representation of Real Red, slightly darker than what's pictured here.

not for petites

This is a great jacket for someone about 5' 2" or taller. It misses the mark for a person measuring 5' 0". It's a hair too long as a result and it makes for an uncomfortable fit because the waist curves in too low and it sits too low on the hips.
It would be great if BackCountry could provide jacket lengths. It's pretty crucial. If you're petite in height, to have the info on jacket length would spare the time and shipping costs in ordering something that will clearly not be right.
Someone who is short, but who still has a woman's curves would be better off buying a children's large.

the only sad thing about summer will be taking of my r2

its expensive thats for sure,and many like me will struggle and ponder whether its worth the cost. I have worn it almost every day since purchse two months ago. it breathes, its super warm when covered with a shell (MH quark!!) and most importantly it makes this moron look sexy....yeah baby! OK excuse that sorry display truth is it is the most highly functional fleece I own. I havnt worn my covert since, and Ive spent a lot of time tryng to decide who to pawn my hated North Face Denali off on. NF will you die already!

R2 has an attractive fit

this jacket is great. it's a perfect weight - not too heavy and not too light - and the fit is feminine and attractive. i'm 5'2" and 100 lbs and i ordered the small. the body fits great though the sleeves are a bit long.

an overall great jacket for the price

As with all Patagonia jackets, this jacket is made well and is definitely worth the money. My jacket has gone everywhere with me, kayaking, hiking, climbing and camping and has never let me down. It wicks away moisture just as fast as a performance base layer, as well as the warmth that a fleece provides. Always order a size up in Patagonia. If you're constantly active outside then then you will definitely love this jacket.

I wear an XS in North Face and needed to return this one for a medium. I am 5' 1" with small shoulders. I think you definitely need to order up 1 size

I am interested in this jacket, just don't know what size to get. My first thought is Medium, as I am average sized, but I see it is a "trim fit." I want it to be a bit loose and comfortable and not super snug, but also don't want it to look way too big. Any thoughts? Go for the Large?

Best Answer Responded on

Patagonia sizing is really unpredictable, so I tried this jacket on in a store. It runs pretty big. I'm a medium and I almost got the small. I would definitely go for the medium.

is this warmer and/or thicker than the North Face Denali fleece jacket (NOT the thermal denali)?

Best Answer Responded on

Yeah, it says 200 weight fleece... But I've had both jackets, and the R2 jacket is warmer.

Great Jacket

I got this jacket for my birthday about two months ago and it has been a perfect transition fleece from my winter coat to no coat at all. My only grievance against it is that it's not very wind-resistant, but if you're looking for something wind-proof, I would go with a shelled jacket. Otherwise, fleece is warm and incredibly comfortable.

I'm wondering how fleecy this is. I' looking...

I'm wondering how fleecy this is. I' looking for something cozy but definitel trendy and sleek. That new micro fleece is neat. Would you recommend one of your other fleeces as opposed to the R2 jacket? Also I'm petite about 5'4 and thin, but have a bigger bust 34 C do you think the xs will fit me or be uncomfortably small?

Responded on

i have a couple of these jackets -- they do them each year. i buy an XS and i am about 5'5" and 112lbs and a 32B with solid shoulders and arms-- i'm not petite. I like the fit. it has those diagonal arm seams which make it easy to move. I don't think it would be uncomfortably tight. it is a loosely woven fleece that has a lot of give. r2 is a fairly lightweight jacket and definitely not the least bit windproof if that's what you are looking for. it's a great layering piece and yes, it looks good. i agree with the comments about the zipper.

The R2 is the best fleece ever made

I received an R2 for my 17th birthday present (5 years ago) and am still wearing it now and it has held up great. I also have a few other newer ones in other colors. I live in this fleece: warm, durable, and good looking!

R2 Jacket - amazingly warm

Very comfortable. Incredibly warm. Sizing is right on. Very avant guard fashion! Not sure how it will survive continuous washing, though (time will tell).

I have not worn it long enough to give it a 5 rating.
