Very big benefits for very little weight when the going gets cold.

Simply stated, size matters. The Patagonia Women's R3 Hooded Fleece Jacket embodies that simple maxim. Weighing in at barely over a pound, the R3 Jacket consists of compressible, high-loft fleece for long-lasting warmth on chilly days. The fleece dries quickly if you need to wash the jacket in your hotel room after an unfortunate gelato incident—wash it at night and wear it the next morning. If the sun shines down as you work your way up, squish this jacket in your pack without sacrificing loads and loads of space.

  • Polartec Thermal Pro body packs down into nothing, breathes, stretches, warms your torso, and dries quickly
  • Polartec Power Dry side panels and underarms stretch with you when reaching for top-shelf items, but bounce back to retain the shape
  • Sonic/Stitch-seam construction in the center front zipper reduces bulk and stiffness so you can wear the jacket comfortably under a harness or pack
  • Redesigned body provides a more streamlined profile, offset seams, and less underarm bulk so you can comfortably wear a pack or a shell on top
  • Regular fit to accommodate a wide range of body shapes
  • Hood for extra warmth and protection when the sky starts to spit or wind starts to howl
  • Zipper garage shields your chin from a cold zipper and zipper rash
  • 2 high hand zippered pockets hold a camera, cell phone and keys, or extra calories on 12-hour ascents, all of which you can reach even with your pack or harness on
  • 2 internal mesh drop-in pockets provide extra storage on the days you don't risk being flipped upside-down

Perfect purchase

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 7"
    Weight: 120 lbs
    Size Purchased: Small

Jacket is soft and so cozy. The light mint green is a great color. I bought this for my daughter, who wears it mainly around our always-chilly house. She is 5'7.5" and 120 lbs, and the size small is perfect. She especially likes that the sleeves and torso are long enough. The seaming through the waist makes this a very flattering and feminine jacket. Although not thick and bulky, it is super warm!

Looks awesome - fits very strange

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Height: 5' 7"
    Weight: 135 lbs
    Size Purchased: Medium

I love the look of this fleece and the colour (cobalt) is awesome. Its nice and long and the cut is very feminine. The very odd thing is that there is a ridiculous amount of the Polartec Power Dry under the arms. It seems that this fleece fits large but primarily around the bust/armpits area and nowhere else. If you're quite busty then this fleece is for you!

Dark Currant is Great

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

This is a really pretty sweater. The dark currant is great, it shines a wine-red color, even in low light, and it's comfortable and attractively fitted. It's warm, but also light enough to layer well with. I would say it has a loose to fitted style to it. As my friend says, "it looks like you skinned a Muppet." It's a typical Patagonia sizing, and I say the whole brand runs large for women.

What is the center back length of a medium?

Almost as fluffy as a baby yak

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

If I'm sleeping outside, my R3 is coming along. This fleece has come on every cold conditions trek and climb I've done in the past three years. The jacket is slim-cut so it layers well, can be super toasty with the hood on, or quickly ventilated unzipped. Though it performs admirably while climbing, I love it most snuggled up in a sleeping bag feeling totally cosy no matter what is going on outside the tent.

So comfy..

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large

Just got this jacket in the mail today and I haven't taken it off yet. Its SUPER comfy and warm. I'm excited to test it outside. The sizing is def strange as most patagonia sizing is because one person could be 3 different sizes depending on what the item is. I ordered a size Small and it fits perfect due to how stretchy and moveable this item is. I'm normally a size M and between a size 6-8. Thought that may help ppl trying to decide. :) The hood is also a nice touch if I was out in the elements and needed extra protection.

Great item!

Softest Jacket

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

But seriously- it's like wearing your favorite blanket in a jacket form. The fleece is SUPER soft, but doesn't shed too easily. It fits true to size- I am 5'2, 113lbs, and I got the size Small. The hood is definitely tailored towards an alpine-style- you could definitely wear it under a helmet if that's what you're looking for. The only thing that I dislike about this jacket is its pockets. The pockets are made out of the super hole-y jersey type material. So if your hands are in your pockets, there's a good chance that they're going to get colder rather than warmer. Other than that, this is my favorite jacket! Feminine cut, looks good, feels good, and made with the Patagonia quality.

Simply great

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

Absolutely warm piece of fabric. And extremly soft too. I've been wearing it without any jacket on top during soft winter days and didn't feel cold. On other way it's so comfotable that you wouldn't want to take it of even in mild summer evenings. Hood is very close fitting which is really good during snowfall. Moreover it has quite femine look to make you feel good looking during harsh weather conditions.
