My favorite outside cozy, it washes & dries well, large pockets, feels so soft even after tons of washings


  • soft
  • warm
  • wash & dries great


  • not a rugged trail fleece
  • finds burrs very easily
  • not campfire spark friendly, anything will show a lot
  • not a rain or wind fleece

This is a great lounge jacket or for travel days that are not windy or too rainy. I admit I wear it the most outside next to the fireplace on the patio. Wonderful cozy feel with easy care.

Not for trail or camping. This is a Patagonia city or home product.

Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars

The breathability is fantastic, but I don't think it's nearly as warm as my other Patagonia fleeces. For me, this is a 3-season jacket. In winter I prefer a loftier fleece layer.

Chilly crags, golden-leafed trails and backcountry powder are all equally fine playgrounds for our Regulator(R) fleece jacket. The R2(R) Jacket?s highly refined construction and fabric traps heat and breathes freely, with the main body relying on high-loft Polartec(R) Thermal Pro(R) recycled polyester fabric, which is superlight, wicking, compressible, stretchy and soft. An R1(R) Polartec Power Dry(R) high/low grid panel runs along the underside of the arms, down the sides and across the lower-front torso, hybridizing the jacket to improve fit and mobility and extend your comfort range. The cuffs have discreet, on-seam thumb loops; the softly lined inner collar and kissing-welt zipper garage are soft on the neck and chin; Sonic/Stitch seam construction reduces bulk on the center- front zipper; offset shoulder seams stay clear of pack straps; zippers close the external pockets (one chest and two handwarmers, above harness-line), while the handwarmers? mesh pocket bags double as internal drop-in pockets.


The Patagonia Women's R2 Fleece Jacket seems to know what you need, when you need it. When you're working hard and getting hot under the collar, R2 fabric letsfresh air in to keep you comfortable. When you're waiting your turn or savoring the summit, R2 fabric provides warmth and offers insulation under a windproof shell. When the sun is out and the winds are calm, stuff this jacket deep within your pack without missing any space.
