The Patagonia Men's R3 Hoody is a midlayer fleece for heading into the cold on a hike, climb, or ski adventure. The full front zip allows for quick temperature adjustments on the fly and the fitted hood stays close to the head, preventing it from falling off in a rushing gust of wind. The Polartec® High Loft™ fleece is a polyester/spandex blend, featuring a grid pattern that wicks moisture and dries out quickly. Down at the cuffs you'll find Polartec® Power Grid™, yep, the same silky, smooth fabric you'll find in the R1 fleeces. Two handwarmer pockets and dual chest pockets for securing small snacks close by.

Men's Fit Guide Details & Info
Patagonia's measurements refer to body size and NOT garment dimensions. Sorry for yelling about it.
Each Patagonia product is designed and shaped specifically for its intended use, and below are their generalized four fit descriptions, and details about each fit. The Patagonia fit for each style can be found in the product description features or specifications.
FORMFITTING • Conforms to the body's contours.
SLIM FIT • Closer-fitting. Slim-fitting technical garments may be worn over baselayers and light midlayers.
REGULAR FIT • Neither slim nor oversized. Regular-fitting technical garments may be worn over heavier midlayers. Men's regular fit pants have a slimmer fit through that thigh, lower leg, and cuff.
RELAXED FIT • Drapes loosely on the body. Men's relaxed fit pants have a bit of extra room through the hip, thigh, lower, and cuff.

Super warm and cozyThis kept me very warm on a camping trip where temps dipped into the upper 20's. You will need a shell to stave off wind, but this is very warm and very cozy. I love the fabric and the hand warmer pockets. I have been wearing pile side out but I really don't see any downsides to the reversible nature of the piece. Some have complained about weight, but unless you are taking it into the backcountry that is really insignificant. It FEELS very light and is amazing next to skin. It really will be an ideal mid layer for cold weather pursuits that don't involve super high output activities. Highly recommended.

Comfortable, good fit, but not as warm as expectedI like my R3, and the fit is trim without being tight. I really like it. However, this modified R3 is not as warm as in previous years. The pile works to keep you warm and dry perhaps as a mid-layer, which to be honest, what this is really intended for. However, this does not come close to protecting you from wind as an outer layer on mild days. The stitched parts where there is no pile are nearly see-through. I view this as a good effort on an experimental piece and do not expect the R3 to look similar next year. The reversibility is a nice feature. I wish both sides had kangaroo pockets though.

Warm and StylishI have been using it with a shell to keep me warm while biking to work along the Lake Huron shore in Northern Mochigan. It is very versatile as a casual jacket

Great texture and feel.Bought for backpacking in the mountains. Very handy
Hi folks at Moosejaw, for working in cold weather (camp Barneo near North Pole in April), I am looking for a good mid-layer below Canada Goose parka. Can you compare Patagonia R3 and Arc'terix Fortrex, Arenite? thank you!
Asked by: Paco
Thanks for the question. These are both great mid-layers, however the one you'd need would dependent on your individual needs. For changing conditions the R3 would be great since it can reverse to be used as an outer layer and is warmer than the Fortez in standalone conditions. If you're looking for something a bit more streamlined and lightweight the Fortez would be what you'd want. I would give a slight edge to the R3, though, for it's warmth. I hope this helps.

With respect to the reversible nature of this piece, is there one way that it should be worn if you are wearing it under a shell and conversely should it be worn the opposite way as a stand alone piece? Which is warmer?
Asked by: CarolinaBlackBear
The best thing about a reversible jacket is that it's like getting two jackets for the price of one! Because it isn't the shell, it doesn't matter what side face up you wear underneath a shell and regardless of which side you choose to represent, it's 97% polyester/3% spandex either way!
