If only your partner were as versatile as our R3® Hoody, you wouldn’t be leading that wide pitch right now. Wear the R3® as an outer layer when you’re moving forward, reverse it out for high-pile warmth under an outerlayer when the pace slows. Compressible and resilient, this reversible Regulator® fleece hoody is made of an exclusive Polartec® High Loft™ polyester that wicks moisture, dries quickly and caches warmth when temperatures plunge. Worn pile side out, it has two handwarmer pockets and an internal zippered chest pocket; worn smooth side out, the chest pocket becomes external. The R1® cuffs have spiral-seam construction and are easy to push up. Elastic binding at the close-fitting hood, hem and handwarmer pockets further seals in warmth. Sonic/Stitch seam construction reduces bulk on the center-front zipper, a soft, kissing-welt center-front zipper garage is easy on the chin and offset shoulder seams stay clear of pack straps.
  • Exclusive to Patagonia, this Polartec® High Loft™ fleece provides exceptional warmth, dries quickly and has breathability appropriate for use as an outer layer or midlayer
  • Snug-fitting hood with elastic binding locks in warmth; underarm gussets and raglan sleeves increase mobility and comfort under a pack
  • Reversible style has removable tags and reversible center-front zipper with soft kissing-welt zipper garage at chin for next-to-skin comfort
  • Pile side out: hoody-style handwarmer pockets with elastic binding; smooth side out: glued-on, zippered chest pocket
  • Center-front zipper has Sonic/Stitch seam construction to reduce bulk and improve suppleness
  • Clean-finished cuffs use R1® Polartec® Power Grid® fabric in a spiral-seam construction
  • Elastic binding at hem, hood and handwarmer pockets seals in warmth

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.

Women's R3 Hoody is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Loved it, but it shedded I purchased this jacket about a year ago, and I really love it....except that it sheds like no other!!! Even now, it has shedded so much that there are small holes in it. So, I took it back and Patagonia was great about giving me a credit for the entire purchase. I'm just disappointed with the quality. But, like I said they stand behind their products. So, I greatly appreciate that!! I just wish they would create a new and improved version because I loved everything about it except for the fact that it shed it's fibers until it was thred-bare. Maybe they will......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it Just received my jacket in Black, a lot of the reviews stated a problem with "shedding" but I haven't had that problem at all. I'm normally a size 6/8, I got a Medium and it fits absolutely perfect with a bit of room to layer. It's super warm without being thick & heavy. I wear it as an outer jacket with a layer or two underneath. It's exactly what I was looking for, casual but also could dress it up a bit. Great quality & I love this companies stand on sustainability & ethics as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite fleece I am a collector of jackets and fleece... especially Patagonia. This is my favorite. Okay, so I don't like the chest pocket on the grid side but everything else is perfection (& if you buy the black then it isn't as obvious). The sleeves are a bit long (I'm 5'8"), the pockets are deep, it is long to keep the back warm, and it's fitted without feeling like a scuba suit. And, most importantly, it is super warm while still being thin. I have the older R3 jackets which were quite fluffy and this is much warmer and easier to layer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really soft I really like this jacket. I did not give this 5 stars because the fleece is lightly shedding on my clothes when I wear it. I have not had this problem before with fleece, or any other Patagonia products, so I am not sure why this jacket is shedding fine fleece particles on my clothes. I recommend this product so long as it is not shedding. I find that I am a little reluctant to wear this jacket knowing that it is going to shed on my clothes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for layering I bought this on Patagonia's Worn Wear* site a few months ago. It's a great layering piece because it is light, but warm. I haven't had any shedding issues, and love the soft fleece. I agree with other reviewers that this jacket should have just as many pockets as the Men's version. Or at least a pocket that could fit a smartphone. Lastly, the hood is not really my style, since when you zip it up in covers your mouth. I'd rather use a gaiter, and have a normal hood. For reference, I wear a small (115 lb, 5'2''), and it's loose enough for me to fit layers underneath. *Patagonia, PLEASE stop putting your worn wear stamp on reversible jackets. The stamp is not cool enough to make me want to show it off to the whole world!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent; why only three pockets? I have owned my R3 for about six months now. I like the fit, the fact that it is still soft and fuzzy, the reinforced wrist material, and the midweight fleece is perfect for coastal fog where I live. The only problem is that curiously, the women's version of this only has three pockets- one on one side, and two on the other (the jacket is reversible). However, the men's version has FIVE pockets. But - they are the same price. I'm sure there is some kind of design reason for this that some product manager could feed me, but the message is clear. Less functional, same price. If it weren't for this little sexist hang-up, I would certainly be giving the product 5 stars!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE, LOVE, LOVE So I am definitely a fleece jacket kinda girl and have lots of Patagonia fleeces, but this one is by far my favorite, followed closely by the R2. The previous R3's were much bulkier and made it difficult to fit under a jacket but this design is wonderful. When the jacket is reversed you do not have access to the hands pockets which might be the jackets only super small downfall.
