Patagonia Retro Pile Hoody

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

When the first prototype of this jacket showed up at a Teton campfire in the early 80s, Patagonia was astonished and amused by the mill workers ingenuity: spinning polyester filament into high-pile shearling. Retro Pile is back but this time its double sided. Patagonia has extended the cozy fleece all the way through for next-to-the-skin luxury. The tall collar is incorporated into a 3-panel hood for extra warmth; spandex binding edges hood opening, cuffs, hem and center-front zip. Mesh-lined handwarmer pockets have grosgrain zipper pulls. Curved back yoke and paneled seams at the hem create a flattering, non-sheepish fit.
