    Warm and Cozy

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

    I bought this Patagonia Classic Retro-X Fleece Vest for my wife and she loves it. She's a huge Patagonia fan in general, but gravitated towards this vest due to the retro style and overall fit.

    Unlike some other Patagonia products that she's owned, this one fit true to size/small.

    It's great for kicking around town, and is more of a fashion piece than a performance one.

    Cute simple vest

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XS

    I love the colors these vests come in. I bought this in an XS in the cream/red color and it goes so well with just about everything. The vest is lightweight but keeps you incredibly warm. I normally wear a jacket inside my friend's house but was able to spend the entire night in nothing but a thin button up and this vest and managed to stay warm the entire night. Awesome for layering as well because it's not puffy and cumbersome like some vests.

    The vest does have a bit of a stiff feel to it but I imagine that will soften with time. I also disagree with some of the reviews that it's boxy and found the fit to actually be quite flattering.

    I do wish that the pocket on the left chest was even just a little bigger for a phone when I'm out and about.

    Super Stylish and Warm

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

    Bought this throwback of a vest for my little sister, who goes to school in DC. It's a perfect combination of style, functionality, and warmth all in a retro package. She said she usually combines this with a sweater or hoodie on the walk to class and is toasty warm, except on truly frigid days when you would want an actual parka. Her favorite feature aside from the styling, is the fleece material. Once it has seen some use, it gets even softer! Definitely recommend giving this as a gift or just getting one for yourself!

    bit boxy due to the smooth mesh inner

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

    The xs fits me without being tight. I am 34C , 37 hip. I wish the inner mesh liner was softer and not the ugly tan color. I wish it had 2 drop in pockets on the inside like the micro d and r4 jacket. I wish the chest pocket didn't have the different color block and was a larger hidden chest pocket. Better colors for winter skin tone women please !

    Patagonia Retro X Vest

      I absolutely love this vest. I get compliments every time I wear it. I have worn it hiking, and to the office. Like most of Patagonia's pieces, it's versatile and timeless. I have the Red & Cream and it's easy to pair with most items in my closet!

      Crushing the vest game!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small

      Loving the throwback look on this vest! It's soft, warm, and so stylish! The inside of the vest isn't as soft and fuzzy as the outside however, the windproof lining is a bonus. Fits true to size and you can easily layer underneath. Everyone should be rocking this look.

      Hey Sarah, it is a bit stiff but won't snag any sweaters that you might wear underneath it. I haven't washed the vest yet so I am not sure how it is after a wash but I do feel that it will soften out a bit after numerous wears out on the mountain. I'll post another review after the ski season!

      Great vest

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium

      I was skeptical about the price of the vest, but after wearing it once found the price to be worth it. The vest is very stylish - I get TONS of compliments on it almost every single time I wear it. I also found that it is fairly windproof. Although not as insulating as a down vest, I still found myself to be fairly warm on windy days.
      Other reviews online said that the fit was boxy and unfeminine- like the other reviewer, I found this to be false. The cut is slightly boxy, but that's how most vests are cut.

      Overall great vest! Would definitely recommend.

      Nice Vest

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: small

      I like this vest for casual adventures. Not overly warm and pretty stiff material but fits well and is cute. I have it in the natural color with the purple. I get a lot of compliments while wearing it but haven't found it of much value for hiking or other outdoor activities. Just not warm enough for me to want to wear it as a layer. Did read in a lot of reviews that it had a boxy fit but didn't find this to be true. I like the fit and it fit true to size for me. Overall would recommend the vest.
