Chilly crags, half-frozen trails and backcountry corn snow are all equally fine playgrounds for our R2® Jacket. This Regulator® fleece jacket's highly refined construction and fabric traps heat and breathes freely, with the main body relying on high-loft Polartec® Thermal Pro® recycled polyester fabric, which is superlight, wicking, compressible, stretchy and soft. An R1® Polartec Power Dry® high/low grid panel runs along the underside of the arms, down the sides and across the lower-front torso to improve fit, mobility and range. The cuffs have discreet, on-seam thumb loops; the softly lined inner collar and kissing-welt zipper garage are soft on the neck and chin; Sonic/Stitch seam construction reduces bulk on the center-front zipper; offset shoulder seams stay clear of pack straps; zippers close the external pockets (one chest and two handwarmers, above harness line), while the handwarmer pocket bags double as internal mesh drop-in pockets.
  • Directionally knit Polartec® Thermal Pro® fabric is breathable, compressible, wicks moisture and dries quickly; with a superior warmth-to-weight ratio
  • R1® Polartec® Power Dry® high/low grid on side panels, underarms and lower torso for improved fit, shape retention and abrasion resistance
  • Refined technical fit, reduced underarm lift, and offset seams for comfort under outerwear and packs
  • Center-front zipper has Sonic/Stitch seam construction to reduce bulk and improve suppleness; with a soft, kissing-welt zipper garage at chin for next-to-skin comfort
  • Discreet on-seam thumb loops provide added coverage
  • One left chest pocket and two high handwarmer pockets have Slim Zip installs, clean-finished zipper garages, and are harness- and pack-compatible; two internal drop-in mesh pockets
  • Body: 6.1-oz Polartec® Thermal Pro® 97% polyester (63% recycled)/3% spandex. Side panels: 6.8-oz Polartec® Power Dry® 93% polyester (41% recycled)/7% spandex. Fabric is bluesign® approved
  • 391 g (13.8 oz)
  • Made in Colombia.

Recycled Polyester

In 1993, we adopted fleece into our product line made from post consumer recycled (PCR) plastic soda bottles. We were the first outdoor clothing manufacturer to do so. PCR® clothing was a positive step towards a more sustainable system – one that uses fewer resources, discards less and better protects people’s health.

Today, we’re able to utilize more sources for recycled polyester and offer it on more garments such as Capilene® baselayers, shell jackets, board shorts, and fleece. We now recycle used soda bottles, unusable manufacturing waste, and worn out garments (including our own) into polyester fibers to produce many of our clothes.

Using recycled polyester lessens our dependence on petroleum as a raw material source, curbs discards and reduces toxic emissions from incinerators.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect compromise This is the best compromise of all Patagonia fleece jackets in my opinion. It's good-looking enough for downtown use, looks much less purely technical than the R3, has the best insulation per weight ratio of all Patagonia fleeces and has holes in the cuffs for the thumbs, which still make it quite technical. No bulky hood, which is great. Incredibly soft. The only thing I would improve for the next edition is the material in the pockets; there should be fleece in there too. Finally, it's reasonably affordable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stretchy and breathable I picked up a red R2 jacket on a trip to California. It was added to the rotation during chilly evenings traveling. It's very breathable, but that has a downside in that the wind will blow right on through. At some point you are going to need a windproof layer. The fit is rather tight and slim, but the jacket stretches very well. I think that a bit of the fuzz showed up on some darker shirts until the first wash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super jacket Finally got a chance to use my jacket during our 1st cool wave here in the Southern Appalachians.The temp was 50* when I arrived at the 4000ft level where I was to camp that night.I was soaked with sweat upon arrival and quickly dried off and changed into a dry synthetic tee shirt and my R2 jacket.There were light winds and the temp quickly dropped to 46*.I was very warm and comfortable at the cliff overlook near my camp.I wore it around my campfire and only took it off when getting into my sleeping bag for the night.The next morning I was very warm while fixing breakfast and packing up.Great jacket,looking forward to many more trips with this great piece of gear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cool weather layer This jacket feels great. Keeps you comfy warm when running around on your bike or everyday casual stuff. You'll need a windproof when the mercury get's into the 50's.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mostly great Overall I like this jacket. Well made, great for post run/tennis on cold days. My only complaint is the sleeves, I am not a big fan of the longer sleeve with a thumb hole. On a lighter jacket it may make sense, but at this weight I don't think it's needed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Once a great product The men's R2 fleece was perfect from around 2009-2011. Something I'd wear every day. Nowadays the styling and fit are strange, and I simply can't bring myself to buy another. Change it back! Change it back! Change it back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Coffee wear... I bought this as a mid layer for hiking but it's so comfortable and warm that I put it on first thing each day for morning coffee. The fit is definitely slim but most of the fleece is very stretchy so that's not a problem. The one exception is the trim on the ends of the sleeves - it's tight and doesn't stretch much so don't expect to push the sleeves up your arms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultimate gear test I have chosen to take the R2 on a 5 year trek from Alaska to Argentina via the west coast of the Americas. Patagonias gear has always been top quality and if you are lucky enough to live by one of the outlet stores and they are having a half off sale a dirtbag can get geared top quality. I will be using the R2 as my go to layer in all climates and all regions of my journey. Size runs true to size I am 6'5 and went with a xl for layering under for a more form fit a large would be perfect.
