Love this zip up! It's super soft and warm enough to wear outside while walking the dogs on a cold night. (even though I spend a lot of time wearing it on the couch) It is al…

So I bought this jacket for both casual use and as a layering piece over lots of rock climbing gear. I haven't been on too many outdoor adventures with it yet, but I know it c…

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 i…

The R3 is great for wear everyday or as a base layer when you're skiing or hiking. I highly recommend it as it's damn fuzzy and about the right amount of insulation for a casu…

After going back and forth between the R2 and R3 I decided to spend a little more for the R3. Glad I did. The fit is great...like many Patagonia offerings a little slim in tor…

I had a North Face Denali. Great to ware without a shell in less windy days. But when use under a shell it feels stuffed and rigid. This R3 feels great to wear under a shell.…

This is hands down the best jacket ever. It's warm, its breathable, its damn near windproof. I have worn it under a shell or on its own and remained totally toasty. I'm 5'1…

Pros: wicks moisture well. The 'furriness' makes wearer extremely huggable. Attractive cut- slimming.
Cons: Fuzzy fleece matts up and holds dirt. It needs to be washed ofte…

Patagonia R3 Fleece
The Patagonia R3 Regulator fleece is, obviously, the third fleece in Patagonia's regulator line. This highly technical material is warm, highly breathable and wind-resistant. The R3 fleece features a dense velour face for stopping wind and a super-plush velour grid inside for against-the-skin comfort and excellent moisture management.
The Patagonia R3 fleece jacket is engineered with a dense outer face and high-loft directional pile interior to provide great versatility as either a warm layer or as outerwear. Patagonia makes a women's R3 fleece jacket as well as a men's R3 fleece jacket. This will prevent your SO from stealing your shit which is definitely a perk because you will not want to share this awesome Patagonia fleece with its stretch-woven chest pockets and microfleece-lined collar, cuffs and hem for enhanced comfort.
The Patagonia R3 Hiloft Hoody is like an even beefier version the R3 jacket. This extremely warm and superlight high-loft directional knit provides maximum warmth-to weight ratio, wicks moisture and speeds dry time. Polartec Power Dry fleece stretch panels provide improved fit and enhanced durability in high-wear areas. Warning: people may approach you and ask to run their fingers through this soft, plush fleece.
