Key Features of the Patagonia R2 Jacket:
Made of breathable, compressible, stretchy, high-loft Regulator fleece, the R2 Jacket provides superior lightweight insulation under a shell.
As adept at trapping body heat under a shell on Denali as it is lounging with turn-earned ease in a backcountry yurt, our R2 Jacket spans the spectrum of cold-weather usage. We worked with Polartec to create the Thermal Pro polyester fabric, which is superlight, extremely compressible and breathable, warm, stretchy and soft. The short-sheared but high-loft face has a smooth appearance, and the directional knit wicks superbly, speeding dry times. Polartec Power Stretch panels on the outer forearms and along the sides increase durability in high-wear areas and allow for a close, mobile fit while retaining warmth. With a softly lined inner collar and chin flap for comfort, offset shoulder seams to stay clear of pack straps and zippered pockets (one chest and two handwarmers).
