Quit stealing your mom's fleece.

If your Mom has cut you off from using her Retro Pile Vest from the 1980s, you may want to consider just picking up a brand new one. They still have the same basic design as the original, and because Patagonia will repair or return all of its products, you'll likely still have one for your daughter to "borrow" from time to time.

Finally found the right Patagonia vest.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XS
  • Height: 5'2"
  • Weight: 105lbs

This is a great vest and I have it on as I'm writing this. Super comfortable and fits like a glove. I have tried several others and returned them all (Los Gatos, hooded and not, Synchilla, Nano Air, to mention some). The fit and comfort level didn't meet my expectations, especially for the price. The reviews on this one with regard to size were helpful. A small would have swam on me, even though in other styles, a small is perfect. I love the color (industrial green) but I did cut off the zipper covers which are a hideous contrasting color. If they weren't the same color as the vest or something more neutral, like black, I'd rather just see a plain zipper, thank you. That's the only faulty design as I see it. The pockets are nice and deep and the fleece seems a good weight. Not sure how it will do overtime but Patagonia's quality is usually top notch so I have high hopes. Finally found my vest. Yay!

Classic Patagonia Retro Vest

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

I bought this retro pile vest as a christmas present and my girlfriend loves it! Perfect vest for wearing around town or a light afternoon hike. Looks great and still performs, classic Patagonia!


  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Small
  • Height: 5'8"
  • Weight: 135lbs

Great vest - super comfortable, warm, and cozy! It fits as a pretty standard Patagonia outer layer fits, which is typically a little large. I've noticed it shedding a little, but nothing too concerning yet.

Another Patagonia Classic

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium
  • Height: 5'5"
  • Weight: 135lbs

Another great Patagonia vest with a vintage take - it is warm, looks good with everything, and super comfortable. It is a bit long but fits well, runs a little large so perfect for a sweater or flannel underneath.

Nice vest but runs large

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Height: 5'4"
  • Weight: 105lbs

I ordered this in green. Love the color and the fleece material, but the vest was way too big for me. The size small chest measurement was 40" (measured armpit to armpit). I don't know how they can call that a size small. It fit my 150 lb. husband! Needless to say, I'm returning it. I may give the XS a try.
