In a nutshell: This is a very warm jacket that feels good to wear. I've owned the R3 for about 7 months now and it's gone on almost every adventure I have had. I've had a lot…

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.
