Patagonia R2 Jacket
Source: bought it new
My favorite outside cozy, it washes & dries well, large pockets, feels so soft even after tons of washings
- 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.
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.
