The Patagonia Women's Retro-X Jacket is a super warm, windproof fleece jacket that will make you stand out, even if you don't want to. Sorry if you're just in it for the technical aspects, but you'll look so sharp in this jacket that people will notice.... and possibly comment. You might be forced into making new friends. Rough, right? The Retro-X is comprised of three fabric layers: a soft Synchilla® polyester outer, a breathable windproof barrier middle, and a moisture-wicking 100% polyester brushed-mesh lining. The shoulder seams are offset for more comfort while wearing a pack and it has Y-Joint sleeves for greater mobility. So whether you're looking for a technical mid-layer or a stylish warm jacket, the Retro-X should meet your needs.

I bought this jacket last winter. It was warm enough to be keep me comfortable through a Philadelphia winter. The jacket is stiff at first but after a few days of wear it breaks in to be better suited for activity. Great overall coat. Does run a little small so if you are border line, order up!
