Patagonia Men's R3 Jacket, comprised of a warm, high-loft, compressible Regulator® fabric, is a great mid-layer fleece for a variety of conditions. I'd try to compare the outer fabric of the R3 to the fur of some animal... but there just isn't a creature out there that is this soft. You gotta step up your game, nature; make an even softer sheep or something. Anyways, Patagonia developed the Regulator® Polartec® Thermal Pro® polyester fabric to wick moisture, dry quickly and retain warmth. Polartec Power Dry® panels run down the sides and undersides of the arms giving freedom of movement. So throw on this fleece by itself or under a shell to keep yourself active no matter the temperature... and try not to look down on all those not-as-soft critters; they're trying their best.

This is a great fleece. I have a hundred weight TNF fleece that just wasn't cutting it on the cooler nights up in the Eastern Sierras. In comes the Patagonia R3, BOOM. It is much warmer than the hundred weight, duh, and not only that, but I wore it out to a bbq this last weekend and no less than three ladies were getting real handsy with my torso; the high-loft Polartech is just that irresistible. As others have mentioned, you aren't going to roll the sleeves up on this bad boy. The cuffs are made of grizzly bear strength material that doesn't really stretch. You know who cares about that? I have no idea, definitely not me. I'm wearing this fleece cause it's cold out. If you really want to expose your arms to the icy cold elements get a knife and get to choppin' (not advised). This is a sweet piece of kit, highly recommended.
"R3 is so soft and warm that I can wear it anywhere in winter."
I'm hesitant when to buy R3 because of his high price. But then I found R3 value for money. I can wear my R3 to travel, to exercise, usually also can wear to go shopping. In R3 I can keep fit and in warm. With R3, I can say that this winter is not too cold.
