The Patagonia Men's R2 Jacket spans the spectrum of cold-weather usage. Patagonia worked hard with Polartec to refine this exclusive Thermal Pro polyester fabric, which is super light, 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 down 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 skin comfort, offset shoulder seams to stay clear of pack straps, and zippered pockets (one chest and two handwarmers).
