The Women's R4 Jacket is made of Patagonia's aptly named R4 fabric, their warmest fleece material. On the outside this mid-layer may just look like a super comfy fleece.... and you're not wrong, but under the surface it is packed with all kinds of technical features. So don't solely judge it by its cover. The R4 material is comprised of 3 layers: a Polartec® Windbloc® polyester with windproof laminate sandwiched between a high-loft exterior and an R2® grid interior. The collar is lined with soft brushed tricot for next-to-skin comfort, and the fit is closer and more technical with elastic in the cuffs and hem for more mobility and coverage. So yeah, it's a super comfy fleece, but there's a lot going on behind the scenes to deliver the coziness that you'll appreciate.

"great jacket...if you can find a size that fits :("
After seeing the top performance of this jacket for my husband, I finally decided to make a similar investment. I have lots of gear from Patagonia and ordered size accordingly. I was shocked at how form fitting and tight this coat was upon arrival given it's description as regular fit and the fit of my husband's fleece. Figuring I just ordered the wrong size, moose jaw rocked and sent the next 2 sizes up for me to try at the store. Sadly, I had the same problems. The medium didn't really fit any different than the small, and then I drowned in the large. If you end up purchasing this coat and it fits you, perhaps don't tell me-I'd be wicked jealous! I know the performance potential is outstanding, really disappointed with the sizing. I've NEVER had to turn down a Patagonia item because of size.
