The Patagonia R3 Men's Fleece Jacket is similar to its R2 counterpart, just beefer. Use it as a standalone coverup when hiking a ridgeline in cold but calm conditions or as a layer when the weather gets frightful. Made with directionally knit Polartec Thermal Pro fabric grid fleece, the R3 provides excellent stretch and warmth, while it wicks moisture and breathes throughout variable temperatures. And it is extremely warm. The R3 also comes equipped with a new fabric engineered for breathability and compression, Polartec Power Dry; this high/low grid fabric is placed on the R3's side and underarms panels to make the R3 even more breathable, compressible, and easier to layer than in previous years. There's an incredible weight-to-warmth ratio with this jacket. In addition to the tech, the R2 is made with fit and function in mind. The center-front full-length zipper makes it more than just a mere layer--it's a fully functional jacket. And it has Sonic/Stitch seam construction to reduce bulk, and the soft, kissing-welt zipper garage at chin makes it more comfortable. Check out the discreet, on-seam thumb loops so you can hold your cold beverage and not have to duck your hands into one of the two high-hand pockets. Those pockets have have Slim Zip installs, clean finished zipper garages, and are harness- and pack-compatible. There's also one left chest pocket and two internal drop-in mesh pockets for even more organization.


For those drawn to the cold and wild, our R3(R) Jacket delivers superb midlayer warmth. Compressible and resilient, this Regulator(R) fleece jacket can also be worn on its own in chilly, dry weather. Made of high-loft Polartec(R) Thermal Pro(R) polyester fabric, the plush R3 fleece wicks moisture, dries quickly and caches heat when temperatures plunge. Polartec Power Dry(R) panels now run along the underside of the arms and down the sides, allowing full mobility, enhanced durability and contributing to the improved, technical fit. Sonic/Stitch seam construction reduces bulk on the center front zipper; a soft, kissing-welt center-front zipper garage is soft on the chin; 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.
