Ws Retro-X® Coat

Kinda Large
April 23, 2023

Cozy and stylish

This coat is very warm with an oversized fit, which is what I wanted. I like the lining and the longer length. I took off a star because I wish the pockets had zippers.

April 23, 2023

Nice for between seasons

I like the color. Normally I wear a small at Patagonia, but this one ran huge. I weigh 123lbs. 34DD. Extra small just fit right.

Beautiful Jacket

I bought this jacket in red and love the color. It is more a red-rust color than wine-purple. I first bought the medium which was huge, so I ended up with a small which fits well. I am 5'2", 139lbs. It fits around my hips which I like to keep me warm. I use this jacket for my daily walks or doing errands. I think I would like it with a ho... Read Moreod for windy, cold days. It is well made, fluffy and comfortable. I love it! I'm confused about the sizing because I have large Patagonia jackets that fit and this jacket is a small. The fit of this jacket runs large.

Not for me

This jacket looked much better online than in person. I felt like I looked like Chewbacca in it. Just overwhelmed my short frame and was not in any way flattering. Returned.

Hi Stacey! Thank you for writing us a review. We're really sorry to hear about the disapointment with the Retro-X Fleece Coat. We truly appreciate this feedback and we'll share it with our design team.

Very warm

Love the coat wish it had zipper pockets and different elastic in the sleeves!

I bought another one for my wife

I purchased the red retro-x coat for my wife as a Valentines Day gift. She loves it and wears it everywhere. Shes always cold, but not anymore. It keeps the cold and wind out super well in Minnesota weather and is cut so she can layer without feeling squished. Because of this, I also got her the beige one. I highly recommend this coat.

March 6, 2023

Super Cozy

I love this jacket. It is really warm and soft to the touch. Perfect for those chilly nights and early morning errands. I purchased the extra small and love the roomy feel without being overwhelmingly large. A sweatshirt, sweater, or several layers can be worn underneath without looking like a "Michelin woman"!!! :P Great buy and great p... Read Moreroduct!

Super Warm and Comfortable

My husband got this for me as a gift. We live in Minnesota and I'm always cold in the winter. This jacket impressed me when I went to the mailbox in below zero weather and stayed toasty warm. It runs a little big but is great for layering. I highly recommend.

Great fleece

Unfortunately too large although I always wear a medium top/jacket.

February 28, 2023

So cozy

I get so many compliments on this jacket! It is so warm. I sized up both for personal preference and because I find that this particular line of Patagonias runs small in the shoulders. Probably could have gotten away with a large, but I love the smooshy oversized look and feel.

February 25, 2023

Very warm and cozy

The jacket is extremely well made inside and out. Living in Arizona, the coat was a little TOO warm for the Phoenix. It would be perfect for hiking in Northern Arizona. I only returned it for this reason and hope to get another light fleece jacket from Patagonia. I love your products!

February 23, 2023

Very Warm!

This jacket runs big! I recommend sizing down one size. Im usually a XL/XXL but I had to exchange for a L. Overall it keeps me warm and makes me feel like a huggable teddy bear lol.

February 22, 2023

So cozy in sequoia red

The sequoia red is even better in person. I am 4'11'' and 120lbs and the XS fits me great. I can even layer in a thick sweater underneath. It is not as soft as the Los Gatos line but the fleece keeps me cozy. Description for Handwarmer Pockets are NOT zippered (took star off for that, it would've been nice if it was)

Gorilla arms

I really wanted to like this jacket. But being on the short side with athletic legs, it looked like I was wearing shoulder pads and had gorilla arms over stocky legs. The oversized look is on point, however, and would be really cute on someone a little taller and/or with thin legs to show off under this oversized jacket.

Unique warm fleece

I ordered the red color on sale. I think its a unique fleece in the color for sure, and also the fit. Its definitely designed for cold weather and since it runs a bit large there is plenty of room for layers. Washes well and seems built to last.

February 13, 2023

Super stiff and too warm

I bought online, four retro X fleece jackets. Two of the 2021 model, and two of the 2022 models in this jacket. It was super hot wearing the jacket. The lining feels synthetic and unbreathable. It felt uncomfortable. Plus the fit on both models was very awkward, not like the other Patagonia jackets I owe! I wanted very much to like this fleece jack... Read Moreet, but ended up returning them all. : (

Super stiff and too warm

I was very disappointed with this jacket. I wanted so much to like it. The fit is large and baggy. Not complimentary. The jacket was super warm and stiff - feeling much like I was wearing plastic. It is NOT a comfortable jacket. I have and am still wearing Patagonia's fleece jacket from over 40 years ago. After repeated washing, the color is f... Read Moreaded, thus I so much wanted to replace it and was excited that this was a "retro" fleece. However the jackets are not even close to being the same. My old jacket is warm, very comfortable, and washable. This new version is very different and feels hot when worn (plastic feel), and very uncomfortable in the fit. I love Patagonia clothes, and I think they can do better on these retro jackets. : (

Super warm and light, wind prevented

I think s suit me the best. But I love m size, which allows me wear thick clothes inside. I love it so much!

January 30, 2023


This coat is insane. I wasn't expecting this much from it considering the Classic Retro-X is stiff and not that warm (to me). I tried this coat on out of the delivery box and I am still wearing it, with the tags on, writing this review because it is so comfy and warm. It is oversized, but I love that because I have broad shoulders, but a tiny ... Read Moreframe (bought an XS). The Shroom Taupe is an awesome color. I wish they made this in the Cone Brown...then it would be even better! I am going to cherish this coat hopefully forever!

January 28, 2023


Everything went well. Even the exchange was timely.

January 11, 2023

Warm and comfortable

Nice warm jacket with extra layering to add inside.

December 10, 2022

Super warm and comfy

I needed something comfortable and warm for NYC walks or upstate NY hikes - I have an energetic bully mix. Whether it's a 5 minute pee break or a 5 hour hike, this has been perfect for keeping me warm. Deep pockets too! It's definitely a more oversized fit compared to the other Patagonia jackets, but I like the oversized look of this jack... Read Moreet. Would def recommend!

November 20, 2022

Comfy coat

It is very soft. Perfect for those chilly days and nights! Love it!

November 16, 2022

So fluffy

The coat is not heavy and the design is beautiful. I like the oversized and the bear looks of it. Its not as warm as insulated jackets that I have. But its warm enough with layers. I want a fluffy fleece coat and this one fits the bill.

October 26, 2022

absolutely love this jacket

absolutely love this jacket

October 22, 2022

Perfect in every way!

I absolutely LOVE this fleece jacket! Generous, very comfortable fit-a fleece I've spent years searching for. Easy to layer but soft enough to wear with a tank and the longer length is perfect. I bought it in Nest Brown and couldn't be happier. Thanks Patagonia!

August 30, 2022

super warm

super adorable and warm jacket. perfect for F/W! it runs a bit oversized but overall, its cozy and easy to wear with layers underneath without looking sloppy. i would say go true to size. 5ft5inches 119lbs & i went with a size small (could have easily got an xs, so depends on your preference/what you plan on wearing underneath).
