Perfect for variable conditions
Used the R2 for 21 days on a Denali West Buttress expedition this year. The R2 served as a perfect base layer and was used the entire expedition. The hood fit over my climbing helmet and zipped high enough to serve as a face buff against high winds. The chest pocket was perfect for my phone and the zipper side pockets worked very well to store snac... Read Moreks. I found the longer length of this jacket worked very well for my climbing needs. I plan to use this jacket for many years to come in various mountain conditions.
This coat is comfortable, warm, and does a good job of cutting wind. I've worn it out on several early spring days in very strong cold winds and while it wouldn't keep me warm if I was standing still it holds in the heat when I'm moving. I like the fit, feel, and pockets on this coat. No complaints.
Best. Sweatshirt. Ever
Hands-down best sweatshirt I've ever owned. It's super warm and soft. I use it as a mid layer for skiing and it's warm enough that I can usually just wear a t shirt underneath and my shell on top and I'm good to go, even in single digit temperatures. It's also super comfortable and I wear it around town all the time. Hood i... Read Mores also warmer than a normal sweatshirt hood because it blocks out the wind far better, pretty much functions as a built-in winter hat. It is also kind of moisture-wicking and holds moisture on the outer layer of the jacket, so if you get caught in the rain you won't feel wet like other sweatshirts. I would give this 10 stars if I could, I love it that much.
R1 of the best!
I enjoy this zip up hoodie fully. I prefer this one over the lesser model because of its water repellency for rain an snow showers. I like the interior pockets. Also that this R1 is a little boxer fit than the other R1. For me it acts more as a second or third layer jacket and on a warmer day allowing room for a second undergarment.
Great Quality...Odd Sizing/Fit
I ordered size Large Great piece of gear. Quality The fit is odd. 6ft 1" 170lbs with 44" chest and broad shoulders. This fleece fit comfortably around chest/shoulders/arm pits but the torso is super long...like wearing a dress long. Also very baggy around midsection. I returned the jacket.
Feels great and zippers are awesome!
I had my eye on this for a while and bought it as a birthday present to myself. Ive already taken it to the ski mountain many times and it helps to keep me toasty warm even with a -10 windchill. My infant son loves to play with the zippers. The zippers are super high-quality without being bulky or heavy.
Too warm for running and not breathable.
So the coat is stylish, comfortable, and great for walking around in cooler weather. However I bought this specifically for cold weather running (below 20F). I was surprised that even when running in 10F weather and only having a technical type of race tee shirt on underneath that I was covered in sweat after 1hr of running. I have several cheaper ... Read Morecold weather running coats and I do not sweat in any of them. This coat cost two to four times as much and performs the worst. Im hoping I can at least hike in fall and spring temperatures without the same effect. I do however like the fit and it serves me better as coat to wear around casually. I also like Patagonias use of good fabrics and attention to quality. I bought this because it got good reviews from a running website.
Hi Travis! Thanks so much for taking the time to review the R2 TechFace Hoody. We're really sorry to hear this one didn't work out for you, it definitely is a bit warmer. You could consider trying out the [Thermal Airshed Jacket](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-thermal-airshed-jacket/24220.html?dwvar_24220_color=SMDB), which is designed for hybridized warmth and maximum breathability while moving in cold weather. Thanks!
Good middle layer
I really like this jacket as a middle layer. It is really warm, has a good slim fit, and looks really good. however, I will say that i feel the S size i got would be better suited to someone with my build (5'-6", 135lbs) but a few inches taller. It still fits well, but the slimmest portion hits at my hips instead of my waist. So, for some... Read Moreone my height, it would be best to slim down sooner, and maybe taper out a smidge at the bottom. The hood is a tight fit which is great for fitting under helmets or fitting into other fitted layers, but if you are wearing it around as casual wear, the hood would look a little weird if you were wearing it. I was also disappointed that there is no internal zipper cover, so when zipped up, your mouth is up against a cold zipper. Also, when getting a slim fit hoody, i would expect tighter cuffs so that the sleeves do not fall down around near your palms. I do really like the hoody as a whole, but it could be better with a few tweaks.
I use this Hoody for every thing in Wisconsin. I work in construction outdoors and I need a high quality hoody to hold up. I use it ice fishing, fly fishing, and bow hunting. It warm enough on its own yet not to thick as a mid layer. The hood is awesome I can wear a stocking hat over it, protects my face from the frigid wind. Can't be happier,...

Perfect Winter Piece
Patagonia should have used this design for the R1 techface hoody. This is my go to piece for winter hiking, backpacking, climbing, and snowboarding.

Great hoody for casual and athletic wear. I've worn it disc golfing in light rain which it repelled, and casually walking the dogs in temps near freezing.

It blocks wind but still breathes well. I didn't feel sweaty hiking in it. The hood is also snug and I've worn it under a bike helmet which kept my ears warm, no issues with the fit of the helmet.

I really like the soft waffle weave inner fabric.
Great mid/top layer
Great fit with the medium. For reference, Im 6 feet, 157ish pounds. At first when I tried it on I thought it might be a bit short at the waist, but after lots of cold trail runs here in Maine and back country snowshoeing treks, I am very pleased with the fit.

This is possibly my favorite piece of clothing. Its warm, breathable, soft inside (so so comfy) , abrasion resistant, and just water resistant enough to take some unexpected rain.

Ive got a few R1s and I love them. They are tough as nails and I never need to think about it when Im jamming a crack. The R2 is the tougher, warmer and cozier version of the R1.

Great "in-between" piece
This hoody is a great performer over a light baselayer in near-freezing weather.

And I say that genuinely in the sense that I have a 42" chest but euphemistically in the sense that I have a 36" waist. The medium fits my torso circumference perfectly and the sleeve circumference is also great. The torso length runs a bit long for me, but not terrible. Sleeve length is crazy long for me, but if you roll the sleeves in they stay put and don't bunch up too tightly at all.
Super comfortable, perfect warmth, nice wind resistance
Im 61, 165 lbs and the fit is perfect. The jacket is so comfortable, I never want to take it off, even when lounging in the house (and especially when next to drafty windows). It has worked great for winter runs in the 20s and 30s and also has very good wind resistance and a nice snug fit for chilly bike rides.
GREAT jacket ... except sleeves
This is one of my favorite Patagonia pieces of all time, and gets heavy, near-daily rotation for just about everything.

I have worn it under rain gear during torrential downpours and it breathes well even in the rain while hiking. When worn solo, it breathes very well, blocks some wind (stops the wind better than my R1) and is warm. The temperature rating for me is between 60 degrees (almost too warm if in the sun and no wind) down to 40 degrees (I have not been in temps below 42 degrees in just this jacket yet). The wind can blow through this jacket, but that is the downside to having it breath so well. I love this jacket and have been living in it for a month now, using it for work and casual wear. Great job Patagonia and thank you for making such an excellent product I can enjoy and rely upon to keep me warm and safe.
Purchased the R2 to be a versatile piece of wardrobe and that is exactly what it does. The Medium runs true to size, with a nice coat length rather than a shorter shirt length.

The techface increases wind resistance compared to traditional fleece, similar to a soft shell, and the inside loft retains that wonderful, warm, classic fleece coziness we all love. The side pockets are easily accessible with harness, and the body of the jacket is long. Patagonia slim fit is often way too tight in the shoulders, chest, arm holes and upper back and therefore uncomfortable (even though I'm skinny) and no chance of layering (I usually don't get anything slim fit due to poor fit), but this is the exception and in my opinion sets the standard for slim fit tailoring - eg, its not sized down through the shoulders and chest but its trim in the lower torso. Perfection! I usually layer this over a sleeveless baselayer and a Capilene Midweight or over a tee and a collared shirt around town and its not restrictive and its looks nice enough for social occasions. Basically, this jacket it performs exactly as described. I love everything about it and cant' recommend it enough!
Mid winter mid layer minimizes cold drafts. Surprised to discover this size L fits under my size L R1 tech Hoody for double breathable protectionism.

warm, nice colours, but not very versatile...
Early days, but so far this garment has worked well for the particular niche use I bought it for - namely something warm to pull on after getting out of the water.

Read Moreod thing if you are of slim or athletic build. And the jacket also looks good. Where the it falls short is in one area where older Patagonia “R”-series gridded micro-fleeces were unbeatable - the soft, drapey, quality which makes clothes irresistibly comfortable, and easy to layer. The stretch fabric used in the R2 Techface is oddly stiff - almost like a thin wetsuit. This stiffness probably adds to the warmth, since the business end of the fleece is firmly clamped to the wearer. But it also makes for some serious compromises when it comes to layering, or freedom of movement. And it means that the jacket does not pack well, occupying a very large space in your pack, relative to the warmth It provides. Where the jacket seems to work best is as a outer layer, in situations where weight and bulk are not an issue. So if you are travelling by car, all good. But based on my experiences with it to date, I would be unlikely to take this garment up a mountain, or into the wilderness. In short, if what you are looking for is a moderately warm outer layer which will dry faster and breath better than a quilted jacket, then the R2 TechFace Hoody can serve very well. But as all-round outdoor garment with technical application, it is sadly inferior to Patagonia’s old R1 or R3 hoodies.

Remarkably Light But Warm
Thanks to some crazy weather (or maybe new-normal), I got to wear this jacket for my couple mile walk to and from work. Worn with just a tshirt underneath, I was comfortable in windy upper 30s F going in and calm almost 60F walking home. Great slim fit. Snuggly fleece interior.
Still summer, so it will be a while before I actually use the R2. I'm medium build, 6'0, 175 and the jacket fit like a glove. First trial proved it to be warm. Hood is snug but not too tight, with good fit around the face. Sleeve's and hem are right length. Long term review will follow after winter.
If you run cold and want a insulating midlayer that provides excellent protection, moisture management and superior abrasion resistance, it's here!
First off-the design and fit of this are what the R1 techface should be. The R1 techface is designed (both hood, zipper covers and fit adjustment) like a shell. But its more like a quasi softshell/air permeable windshell that would be better suited as a midlayer than as a shell ie worn as an outer layer until conditions deteriorate. Granted, i live... Read More in the PNW so if I lived in somewhere that has "easy" conditions (dry) like CO, then it would work well as a psuedo shell. Make an r1 techface in the same feature and build set (not with shell features) or the r1 techface pullover with a under helmet hood, and voile, youll have a winner. As is the r1 techface is an identity crisis that works well only in forgiving climates. Anyway, back to the r2 techface. This is everything the R1 tech should be. A stretchy, moisture managing, semi wind and water resistant, insulating MIDLAYER, that doesnt pretend to be a shell, yet can pull double duty as one in good to fair conditions. The fabric kind of reminds of neoprene (in a good way) the interior fabric is extremely cozy, but when wet it gets soaked it stays warm and manages moisture well. The weather resistance is very high. They also get rid of the stuff that the r1 techface doesnt need, ie outerwear style adjustment. It is just a stretchy formfitting piece. The only conditions dependent issue (and why the r1 tech needs a redesign) is that this thing is wicked warm! This is a pro and a con. I would use this as a more versatile midlayer than the nano air light series. It is as warm as the nano air light series, is cozier, more weather resistant, way more abrasion resistant and only a bit heavier. It will last multiple times longer than any nano air piece. BUT I will likely only use it on very cold days, as I tend to run hot. OR stop and go adventures to minimize layer changes. If you run cold and want a insulating midlayer that provides excellent protection, moisture management and superior abrasion resistance, then here you go! It is a little heavier than other midlayers, but they wont last half as long (i have owned the r2 techface jacket for over a year so I know how the fabric does long term-which is to say, excellently). Also sizing is better than some other patagonia pieces. I wear a medium or a small in patagonia (which is insane as I am a 6'1 40in chest 175 lbs male) which in any other country is Large. But patagonia has changed their sizing to accomadate the masses in America-ie not athletic. This is actually more fitted for an athlete. Due to generous stretch, i could wear a small in this piece, but liked the feel of the medium better.
I have the regular techface r2 , just got the hooded version in red. It seems like they improved the cut. This is a great piece, as warm as a micropuff but more breathable. I also love my nano air but this has that great soft fleece interior and blocks the wind great. Brilliant piece.
