Why We Like The R2 TechFace Hooded Fleece Jacket

Still one of our favorites, the R2 TechFace Hooded Fleece Jacket is a rugged update on Patagonia's performance-oriented, midweight R2 fleece. The original R2 offered stretchy mobility and enhanced moisture management to dry quickly when you're sweating on a rigorous alpine climb. Patagonia updated this R2 with a TechFace exterior for exceptional water- and wind-resistance to shed light moisture like slight snow falling on a steep skintrack when you're backcountry touring.


  • Midweight, performance fleece made for skiing, climbing, and alpine

  • TechFace exterior is durable water- and wind-resistant
  • Under-the-helmet hood has an elastic binding for secure coverage
  • Multiple pockets keep important items securely nearby

Warm, soft, and good wind protection

I've used it several times

The fleece jacket size is true. There is a lot of stretch to the fabric. It is warm and has good wind protection.

A Cheap Imitation of its Predecessors

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:
6' 2"

This is the first negative review I have left for a Patagonia product. The R2 Techface hoody is not new technology or design. It is, at best a cheap imitation of those that came before it. The Mixmaster hoody came first with original R2 fleece and every technical feature and fit to make it the perfect hybrid hoody for ice and alpine climbing. Next came the Northwall hoody, also perfect for cold weather days in the cold. The R2 techface has the weakest fleece lining I have ever seen in a jacket. The last generation R1 was more durable and warmer. After only a month of wearing it, the fleece lining is worn and any real insulation is lost. There is no hem or hood drawstring and no wrist fasteners. In other words, the jacket will not stay in place when ice climbing. The Mixmaster could easily be worn climbing in the teens and provide plenty of warmth. It was the perfect mountain jacket. The R2 Techface excels …. maybe on a late fall/early spring pub crawl…maybe. Sorry Patagonia but you really dropped the ball on this one.
