User Review: Patagonia Men's Retro Cardigan
Fabric: PCR polyester
Price Paid: $275 CDN
This is a warm fleece jacket, but not windproof, for that you have to get the Retro-X, which is about $325 CDN. It is a great layering piece, and fits trimly for compact fit under a shell/parka. The XXL is JUST big enough for me, as I am 6'3" and have very long arms. So if you are bigger than that, you are out of luck. The pockets and general design are great and I have no tech. complaints. The only issue is that the fluffy fleece on the jacket tends to flatten at the elbows. It is kind of unsightly, but no big deal on a piece that even Patagonia admits is ugly (although I tend to think it looks nice). just an all around great piece, versatile and very comfortable. By the way, it comes in some really nice colours.
