The zippered chest pocket, collar and wind flap are 100% nylon with a weather-shedding DWR (durable water repellent) finish, and the zippered side handwarmer pockets are lined with brushed polyester mesh.

bluesign® Approved Fabric

Patagonia has worked with bluesign technologies since 2000 to evaluate and reduce resource consumption in our materials supply chain, and to assist us with managing the chemicals, dyes and finishes used in the process. bluesign technologies, based in Switzerland, works at each step in the textile supply chain to approve chemicals, processes, materials, and products that are safe for the environment, safe for workers, and safe for the end customers.

In 2007, Patagonia became the first brand to officially join the network of bluesign® system partners.

Any fabric you see that’s bluesign® approved offers the highest level of consumer safety by employing methods and materials in their manufacture that conserve resources and minimize impacts on people and the environment.

Odor Resistant

Polygiene® odor control permanently protects your garments from smelling like a middle school locker room. Sweat itself is odorless, but it creates the conditions that bacteria need to multiply, and some of those bacteria produce odors. Polygiene permanent odor control stops the growth of odor-causing bacteria on fabrics, so you can wear more and wash less.

Active only on the fabric surface, Polygiene permanent odor control does not interfere with perspiration or with the skin’s natural bacterial flora. Polygiene particles are more than 100 times larger than nanoparticles and therefore are too large to penetrate to the skin’s barrier. Polygiene-treated fabrics have received Medical Class 1 approval in Europe, the same class that includes bandages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Retro X Vest As a Michigan fishing guide, staying warm is often imperative. The Retro X Vest is an essential part of my layering system... It does a great job at keeping my core warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the originals I have one of the originals in all of its rough side out dirty tan glory. Bought in the 70s/ early 80s maybe. First Patagonia product I ever bought, Still my go to, in the woods, in the kayak drybag, snowshoeing, iceboating. What I specially like is the long back that gets down and covers your kidneys.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice and warm! Got this for a Christmas gift and really love it. It is a bit stiff due to the wind-proofing and I wish the zipper was a little more substantial, but overall, it's great. I am 6' and 170 lb and a large fit nice with a flannel shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 15 years! I bought the predecessor to this 15 years ago (when it wasn't really "retro"), and honestly think this is the single best piece of clothing I've ever bought. I wear it so often and for so many purposes, and it never disappoints. I ski with it under a shell, warm up for workouts in it with a T-shirt, wear it over a sort-of clean shirt to work, and use it for so many other purposes several times per week. It is super functional, breathable but warm, and lets me move without restrictions. Even my wife likes the way it looks; classic, stylish, and fits perfectly. The only downside is that it is one of those things that if I forget on a trip, I am disappointed with myself for not remembering to bring it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mid layer must - great warmth and handwarming Ive had one of these in the rotation for almost a decade now, and it has stayed there because it is awesome under a pit zipped shell and it is just great warmth. With pit zips open, you can reach in and warm/dry cold/wet hands on the fleece. Excellent for winter fly fishing, and equally useful when on the mountain to keep the warmth in on single digit and subzero days. Doesnt pack down like a puffy, but it makes up for it in soft, lofty fleece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect piece for core warmth! This vest exceeded all my expectations. It is extremely warm and performs well in windy conditions. I am 5'8", athletic/muscular-build and the size medium fits me perfectly. I typically wear this over a short/long t-shirt or a fjord flannel. I would size up if you plan on wearing this over bulky clothing items.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fit, true to size but color is a bit off My boyfriend is 6' tall and typically wears an XL in Patagonia. The XL is the right size for him but we are returning it because the carbon and orange color actually looks like a green and orange hunting vest. The orange is super bright and the "carbon" is more green than expected.
