    Big perks without the weight.

    Simply stated, size matters, and the Patagonia Women's R3 Hooded Fleece Jacket embodies that simple maxim. Weighing just under a pound, the R3 Jacket consists of a compressible, high-loft fleece for long-lasting warmth on chilly days. Polartec fabric is breathable and dries quickly if you do sweat in it, and if the sun shines down as you work your way up the mountain, squish it in your pack without sacrificing too much pack space.

    Patagonia Tec Sweater

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

    The R3 Hooded Jacket is super lightweight without losing warmth and is super soft. My sister was surprised to find that it is reversible and can be worn with the pocket in front showing or without. Great for casual wear but also is great for a winter trail run or mountain tour.

    In. Love.

    A friend of mine had been talking non-stop about how awesome her R3 was, so I figured as a Professional Fleece Aficionado I should weigh in on the whole situation.

    Reader's Digest Version: Hands down the fluffiest, coziest, easy-to-wear and thermally efficient fleece I have in my line up.

    Ages ago I picked up an R3 (orangutan orange mind you) and the high loft fibers shed all over everything I owned, leaving a very barren fleece - so I was a bit apprehensive of giving the R3 another go, but I'm so glad I did. The new and improved R3 touts a shorter fleece that doesn't shed, wicks away moisture, dries quickly, and assures warmth when you need it most. All in all, I love the fact that the R3 promotes cozy warmth while being incredibly lightweight and packable. Sometimes when I'm traveling, I roll the jacket up into the hood and use it as an impromptu pillow.

    Perhaps my favorite part about this fleece is the fact that it's totally reversible! One side features a longer, loftier fleece for colder days, and the other has a shorter fleece for warmer days. Whoa, hello, imagine my surprise when I discovered that! One side has a chest pocket and the other has hand pockets. Additionally, my second favorite part about this fleece are the cuffs - super low-profile and slim without cutting off the blood flow to your hands (obviously crucial).

    My only beef is the oversized collar and hood, which I know is for helmet-compatible purposes and warmth and what have you, but it's a little bit much when you're wearing it unzipped.

    As for the fit, I picked up a Small, which is a big long and slightly relaxed, but I love it regardless. I think that if I were to purchase another fleece, I would go with an XS instead. For fit reference, I wear an XS in just about all Patagonia items, but can wear a Small when I'm looking to have a more relaxed fit. Additionally, I wear an XS in Arc'teryx and XS in Prana items.

    great jacket, meh colors

    I was hesitant in ordering this jacket as I wanted something packable for travel but just a bit softer and warmer than my nanopuff and reviews seem iffy. I ordered the ultramarine thinking it seemed to be a versatile enough combo....
    Upon receipt I LOVE the weight, comfort, and versatility of the jacket itself. There is a definite warmth variable depending on which side you wear out which makes it that much more functional. A few things to note, and maybe I just wasn't being that observant, but the hand pockets are only on the side without the chest pocket. They are NOT accessible from both sides!!!! I also ended up returning the ultramarine and ordering the rustic purple (which I haven't received yet) because the ultramarine is highlighter blue. It's kind of pretty with my blue shoes but it literally reflects that blue onto my face as if it were glowing which, due to my tan skin, makes me look reptilian and sick. Reflective highlighter blue is also very difficult to match with a pair of shorts/pants. This also makes it harder for use in a capsule wardrobe. On the other hand, if you are in the back country it would be FANTASTIC for not losing hiking buddies in the wilderness or flagging aircraft if necessary. Something to consider.
    Overall, if you can get over the color options at this price point I would say it is worth the investment.

    Patagonia R3 Hooded Fleece

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    I borrowed this jacket from a girlfriend to go on a fly fishing trip, and I loved it. It was lightweight, but warm and soft. I think it would be awesome as a baselayer for skiing as well.

    Not Polartec 300!

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size

    From the R3 description I expected the equivalent of Polartec 300, which I am familiar with. The fabric of this garment was thin, sleazy, and not even warm enough to be a light sweater in the house. So thin it's transparent in places. What a disappointment, especially from a company like Patagonia. I returned it.

    You've got to give it a shot! It's not going to wear like a regular 300 weight fleece, and looks very lightweight, but packs some good warmth and is higher performing and more versatile than traditional 300 weight fleece, which is the way to go if you're just looking for warmth. The R3 is designed to combine warmth with being lightweight and packable.

    The hood!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    I basically live in this fleece!



    The soft, fuzzy material makes it very cozy and the side paneling keeps the jackets shape, making it more fit than baggy. The material doesn't shed and it's super warm.



    The best part about it is the hood. The snug fit adds that extra layer of warmth.



    This jacket is great for all occasions, like I said, I basically live in it! If you're looking for something to keep you warm on camping trips, around the house, and on afternoon hikes, this is for you!

    The hood!

    Perfect purchase

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

    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
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    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.

    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.

    Almost as fluffy as a baby yak

    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

    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.
