    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.

    • A fuzzy vest for indoor comfort and outdoor adventure
    • High-pile fleece is extra snuggly for all-time comfort
    • Zippered hand and chest pockets hold all your essentials
    • Item #PAT01Y2

    If you are a layer lover...

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    This one’s for you.

    I prefer to be on the warm side of toasty, esp during PNW mid seasons when weather changes quickly through the day, or when I simply want extra warmth for those nights Beyond the Wall. This fleece top will do just that, and it manages to do so without sleeves (better for the gun show).

    I tend to associate The Fleece Vest with 90’s nerd dad vibes/sad corporate swag but this design ascends beyond that by embracing old and nu lewks for something truly special.

    I sized up for limitless possibilities.

    Patagonia Retro Pile Vest - Women's

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'4"

    This vest is comfortable, warm and durable. A great casual piece or an extra layer when you need some additional warmth. A bit boxier than I normally would like.

    So Cozy!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    I absolutely love this vest! I ordered a Large and have plenty of room to layer the vest over my Fjord Flannel or a thicker sweater. The Pelican color goes with everything and I get tons of compliments every time I wear it! The weight is perfect when it's paired with a flannel on a chilly Fall day.

    Cute vest but sizing is odd

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 140lbs

    I had been eyeing this vest for months, and finally brought myself to purchase it for the fall. I am a pretty solid medium in all things Patagonia. However, this vest fit really weird. The length was perfect, but the rest of the vest was too large a boxy. I am normally ok with wearing vests that are a little big, so that I can wear them over flannel or sweatshirts, but this one fit me all wrong. I also tried on the women's small, and it fit better but was too short.
    I may try to get men's small and see if that gives me a better fit. Such a bummer, because the colors are perfect for my fall wardrobe.

    This is a super cute vest. I would definitely recommend sizing down and possibly trying on a men's if the women's fits you weird.

    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!

    Love!

    • 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.
