Robert Johnson wrote a review of Patagonia R4 Windbloc Jacket - Mens - Fall 03 on May 9, 2003
Typical North-American high-end product: sound concept; intelligent design; carefully-constructed in well-chosen hi-tech materials. Its light, compact, warm and very fetching (at least, in black lined with purple). Be aware that the sleeves are long (for reaching up to the next thing or those top-shelf magazines); the elasticized cuffs will only fit the wrists of knuckle-draggers; pockets are lined in a mesh fabric, so must be closed to achieve full wind-resistance; it is slim-cut so will not suit porkers. So, to be snug in a gale without looking like a bulked-up fool, for the serious walker or high-street poseur this is the garment of choice. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
