User Review: Patagonia Men's R4 Jacket
Price Paid: $125 Ebay
I disagree with the previous review. This is the coziest, most comfortable jacket I've ever worn. I'm a slim 6' 5" and the XL fits me perfectly. I've been out all day in 35 degree weather with 25 mph North winds, and this jacket kept my core warm and toasty. It's just a bit stretchy, completely windproof, but very breathable -- never clammy like my old Windstopper fleece I replaced this with.
The quality and detailing are what I've come to expect from Patagonia. I've been looking for a windproof jacket with decent insulating qualities for quite some time. I looked at every soft shell on the market, then tried out a Marmot Gravity soft shell, but returned it due to the boxy fit and lack of insulation.
The R4 is exactly what I was looking for. I probably wouldn't have coughed up $215 for one, but I didn't have to. I'm an extremely happy customer.
To the previous reviewer -- Patagonia does guarantee everything they sell. If it had a defect or didn't fit right, they'd take it back.
