The Patagonia Women’s Retro-X Vest is a windproof fleece vest for warming your core throughout the cool to cold months. In the fall, throw it over a long sleeve for a walk through the woods. If a light precipitation starts falling, the Quilted Supplex nylon panels across the shoulders and at the collar will protect you until you make it home. Zippered pockets not only secure your keys, but they’re great hand warmers as well. The ¼ inch Synchilla fleece is so cozy, you’ll be hard pressed to take it off.

I bought this vest to wear over collared button-down work shirts and slacks/skirts on really cold days. (I'm an attorney, but I work in a somewhat casual office.) I really love the look and quality of the vest, but I think it runs small. It would fit over the fitted collared work shirt, but not over anything bulkier than that. I have several other Patagonia vests in a size medium, and they fit really well, even over a bulky shirt. In particular, the armholes are a bit tight. I wanted to exchange for a large in the same color (walnut), but Moosejaw doesn't have it in stock. So, I am getting the Rockwall color. Will have to see if I like it as much.
I have wanted this vest forEVER. Unfortunately I had to exchange it for a bigger size because I want to layer underneath it. But it's SO nice, soft, comfortable, warm!! The best. I have a long Patagonia fleece and wanted the vest so I finally ordered one. Can't go wrong!!!
