I have had the jacket for a week now and absolutely love it. I am 6'1" 180lbs and ordered a large. The athletic cut gives it a great slim fit, and the sleeves are a perfect…

Patagonia R2 Fleece
The Patagonia R2 Regulator fleece offers an excellent warmth-to-weight ratio. The R2 is warm, breathable, and compressible. Directional knit wicks moisture and speeds dry time. When I see the R2 I can only think of the cutest little robot ever. I'm going to write the rest of the information in his language. Beeep beep beeeeep beep beep blip. Beep bop boo beep beep. Flashing lights. If you can't understand that you'll need to build something like C3PO to translate or you can try to find one of those people that knows absolutely everything about Star Wars.
They fashion this fancy R2 Regulator fleece into many forms for men and women. There are vests for men and women as well as pull overs and jackets. All of these options mean that never again will you have to be cold or uncomfortable. It also means you will never have to compromise on just how covered you need to be by warm, stretchy R2 fleece.
The vests come with Polartec Power Dry fabric panels under the arms allow for a close fit, improved motion and increased durability in high-wear areas. All R2 fleece styles have an offset shoulder yoke for comfort under a pack. The men's R2 fleeces and the women's R2 fleeces have zippered pockets for stowing all sorts of futuristic Star Wars-like gadgets.
