Patagonia R2 Jacket Description
Brand : Patagonia
Season : AW15
Code : 5062406
Using Patagonia's exclusive high loft R2™ Fleece, this technical midlayer provides superb warmth under a shell when winter climbing or mountaineering. The R2 Jacket is possibly the ultimate cold weather layering piece.
The R2 Jacket uses a hybrid construction to give the best in both insulation and breathability. The main body uses high-loft Polartec® Thermal Pro® recycled polyester fabric, for sumptuous warmth and breathability, while the underarms panels use R1™ Polartec® Power Grid™ for low bulk, maximum freedom of movement and wicking performance.
Patagonia have engineered this jacket for ultimate performance when being active in cold climes, working efficiently as a mid layer under a shell or as a stand alone outer layer in milder conditions.
Chilly crags, half-frozen trails and backcountry powder are all equally fine playgrounds for our R2™ Jacket. This Regulator® fleece jacket's highly refined construction and fabric traps heat and breathes freely, with its main body relying on high-loft Polartec® Thermal Pro® recycled polyester fabric, which is superlight, wicking, compressible, stretchy and soft. The remapped R1™ Polartec® Power Grid™ high/low grid panels now wrap each cuff, then run along the underside of the arms and down the sides to improve fit, mobility and comfort range. The new cuff design employs a spiral-stitch construction that won’t constrict your forearms when you push up the sleeves; the softly lined inner collar and kissing-welt zipper garage go easy on the neck and chin; Sonic/Stitch seam construction on all zippers reduces bulk; offset shoulder seams stay clear of pack straps; zippers close the external pockets (one chest and two handwarmers, above harness line), while the handwarmers’ pocket bags double as stealthy internal mesh drop-in pockets.
