Sean wrote a review of Patagonia Classic Retro-X Jacket - Men's on February 4, 2012
First off, I'm 6'4 190-200lbs (depending if its the holidays) and i fit very well in size large. I bought the black retro x with the grey pocket.
Used this from camping and hiking to everyday use in the wind, rain sleet and snow up here in the pacific northwest. Never has let me down. People have commented on it on several occasions and have even gotten a few random people asking if they can feel the fabric.
Over the past year and a half of owning the jacket the only wear and tear is under the elbows where the fleece has gotten a little matted while driving or resting my arms. Does not affect the integrity whatsoever. And can be remedied by rubbing your hands over it for a few seconds to kind of rough it back up.
I see myself using this for a long time.
