Kendall Eysterwrote a review of Patagonia R2 Fleece Jacket - Men's on May 3, 2003
This is an extremely comfy mid layer that keeps you warm in morning cold and breathes when the sun comes up. Its arms are snug fitting for ease of motion (the flexible fabric is a plus!) and the high pockets allow access even with a backpack belt. I love this jacket! Get it if you're looking for an insulating layer or for just getting into town on cold days. The main zipper is not especially rugged. It's thinner than most fleece zippers. But it is YKK so shouldn't be a problem. I bought mine for a year I'm spending in Germany where it will be perfect beneath a water-repellant layer. Thanks Patagonia, again.
