Michaelwrote a review of Patagonia Insulated Fjord Flannel Jacket - Men's on January 7, 2019
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Capable and stylish this shirt jacket that performs as advertised - wear it to work with business attire or for genuine hiking/outdoors, it's perfect for most cold days (60g insulation) as it greatly reduces windage, and can layer nicely with thick tight knit wool undergarments. I especially like that after a hike I do not feel sweaty (or too cold) - this makes being outdoors so much more enjoyable. The inside liner is a smooth silky like material so putting it on is always effortless, the outside shell is essentially a wind proof and very soft cotton. The garment being made of cotton feels very comfortable giving the sense of adventure. The side pockets provide generous of room to shield your hands on a windy day or to hold your trail snacks. After two years, the wear and tear is quite minimal, unnoticeable/trivial imperfection in the cotton shell at best, buttons still work great, some of the thread around the buttons are showing, but nothing major. I've purchased two, and I suspect I will be owning a third one soon as my current one in a solid Navy will probably be wearing out eventually, this coat is a winner.
- Multipurpose - Modern stylish meets functional (hike the trail or hike to the office in business attire)
- Great modern fit - Fits many body types well (perhaps flatters)
- Breathable - Great with layering, warm and less likely sweaty on a hike, blocks windage
- Not water proof - Lightly water resistant at best.
