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.

"If you're wondering if you should get it, the answer is yes."
I have been eyeing this for years and my only regret is that I did not buy it sooner. It is all around perfect. It isn't bulky but it keeps you warm. It isn't itchy. I am 5'7', probably 150 pounds and I ordered a large. It is a little big, I went up a size so I could add layers under it comfortably. The quality is remarkable. My dog really likes it too.
This sweater vest has a great shape, very flattering and not bulky. The fact that it's a knit rather than the usual fleece really makes this vest stand out. I bought the natural color and it goes with everything. So far there's been no pilling (a problem with other vests I've owned) and it just looks so smart.
Every wardrobe needs to have the Patagonia Retro X.... I have worn the coats for years and this is my first Retro vest. Its fitted so if you plan on wearing bulky sweatshirts or sweaters underneath may want to order size up. Very stylish, warm and comfortable ! Great assortment of colors too :)
I love this vest! So warm and soft. I got it in the color neutral and I'm glad I picked that one. I wasn't sure what size to get as I'm usually a small but I'm really glad I read reviews. This vest does not stretch very much at all so I would definitely size up from what you normally wear! I did that and I'm really glad I did. Super cute vest!
So glad to finally find this vest for my daughter that is all over Pinterest but very hard to find- especially in her size - luckily Moosejaw had it! She can't wait for fall to start wearing it. The cream fleece will go perfect with almost any outfit. She is 5'7" and 140 lbs and went with a medium. she has two other Patagonia vests that she wears a small in, but this one seems to run smaller. I think it is because the material is not stretchy like the better sweater vest or the retool vest. So definitely go up a size. Love it!!
So glad to get this hard to find Patagonia vest for my daughter. She fell in love with it on Pinterest and we had to find it. Luckily, Moosejaw had it in her size! The cream fleece is perfect for almost any outfit - she can't wait until fall so she can wear it. She usually wears a size small (5'7" and 140 lbs) in her other Patagonia vests, but she went with a medium on this one.The fabric is not as stretchy as the better sweater vest or the retool vest, so I would recommend going one size up. Love it!!!
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!!!
