Super Cute

Love, love, love this jacket... love the waffle weave!

February 9, 2023

Cozy and warm

This is my 3rd jacket in this style. Obviously I love it! Can be worn in cool temps as is or under a shell for colder activities. Stretchy so that it's great when xcountry skiing or hiking. Can't ever go wrong with Patagonia!

Yay Tech face hoody

I turned in to Worn Wear an R3 full zip hoody that was warm, but never in any changeable weather IE wind. I bought an R2 Tech face hoody, & have worn it a bunch as an outer layer for winter running & under down layers in a recent cold weather stint- love it! Recommend it️️️️️️! *****

Perfect cold weather and workout jacket

I live in MN and still workout in 5 - 10 degree weather and needed a coat that was light and adaptable to different exercises yet able to keep me warm. I wore this coat on a cold morning 12 degrees with 6 degree wind chill and with the appropriate layering this jacket was a perfect combination of warmth and breathability. The hood was nice and snug... Read More and I like how the back covers the back side to block the cold wind. The coat was light and flexible for outdoor activity and kept me dry as it was a snowing. This coat delivered!!

Super warm and cozy

These jackets are fantastic. I have three now that I have gotten over the years since they were first released. They are great for lounging around the house as well as cold morning runs and hikes. Also they are cute enough to wear out and about on the town. Super versatile. Remarkably I have not had any pilling issues with them either and my origin... Read Moreal one is about 3 years old and has been worn a ton. My only complaint, and this holds true with most other Patagonia fleece at this point, PLEASE stop making everything long enough to fit a 6 foot tall woman! The average woman is 5ft4 and yet all of your models are 5ft9. These jackets are even long pictured on them. So many people complain about the length of your fleece but nothing is ever done about it. These could easily be 4 inches shorter and comfortably fit the majority of women. If you could please shorten the length or at least offer a petite sizing I think you would have a guaranteed winner with these fleece. I personally don't love the fact that it covers my entire butt, and I am the average height of 5ft4. Other than the length these jackets are amazing.

Great Tech Fleece

Love this fleece! A go to! Perfect under rain or snow shells or on its own. Love the reinforced wrist panel as that is where my earlier generation fleece have worn a bit. The only comment I have is the size - it just seems quite different than other Patagonia fleece sizing. I am small in the shoulder/chest area and wider in the butt/hips. I have al... Read Moreways (25+ yrs) worn a Patagonia Women's S - in every top ... For this fleece - I started with an S, and it was enormous for how I would use a tech fleece. So I got an XS, and it is still pretty large. Upside, it falls over my hips with space to spare and is long so it fits into my bibs with easy and little bulk given the amazing fabric. It's just more roomy than I'm used to at this size point for Patagonia.

Hey Nikki, thank you for the review. It's interesting that you found this technical fleece to be big considering it's a slim fit. We appreciate the feedback and will share the issues you faced with fit with our product team. This hoody does also come in an XXS, but it doesn't look like we'll be restocking until June of 2023. If you'd like to move forward with an exchange, reach out to our [customer service team](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) at that time and we could get that set up for you.

versatile jacket

Indoors or outside, this jacket has great style and offers warmth and flexibility.

Great material - two suggestions:

Great material - two suggestions: 1. Make the body length shorter 2. Instead of a bubble gum pink piping consider a classic red piping color

October 1, 2022

Didn't work for me

I really love this fabric, but the fit of the jacket did not work for me. I tried both the M and the L and neither fit the way I wanted. The large was too roomy and the medium was not big enough for my shoulders.

September 5, 2022

Love these R2 tech hoodies

Love these R2 tech hoodies for woman - I own 4 and find them very useful for everyday use and activities. Love the contrast piping introduced this year.

October 15, 2021

Wonderful jacket!!

This jacket is super comfy, has a wonderful fit, is a popping color (electric blue) for walking in the woods and keeps me warm in all kinds of weather! Love this jacket!

September 30, 2021

Beautiful Hoody

I needed something to travel with. The weather would be hot, then cool, windy, then not. I needed something that would go with the colors of my wardrobe. This was perfect and exactly what I needed.... for the airport, for walks, in the house in the morning. Thank you Patagonia for the fine quality of everything you make!

September 16, 2021

Comfy and Warm

Fits great except the sleeves are short. I wish Patagonia would make an R-1 with thumbholes and extra-long sleeves and a hood! Otherwise, this is super stretchy and warm.

September 11, 2021

Warm & fits like a glove!

Brought this jacket on a scuba dive trip & everyone around me now knows how much I love this jacket because I couldnt stop saying, Im so in love with my comfy new jacket!@ Kept me warm after dives, on breezy nights, on the plane. Im in love! I need more!

September 9, 2021

I really needed this jacket in a Medium

Please bring this jacket back. I really needed a medium but ordered the small because that is all you had in stock but it was a bit snug. Hoping I can order a medium in the future!

Super comfortable

Great light jacket! Good fit and design for those days where you just need an extra layer. Super happy with the purchase.

September 3, 2021

Perfect Base/Mid Layer

This thing is a perfect mid layer for ski touring, packs down well if you shed a layer. Im 5,2, 120lbs size small fits great. i love the length as it covers my butt. The hood is awesome, fits under my helmet. all around awesome piece

August 28, 2021

Quality and comfortable great fpr hiking

Quality and great for hiking Just love it..thanks

May 14, 2021

A Keeper

The color, overall quality is great. This jacket is warm in foggy, windy weather along the California coast. Only complaint has nothing to do with this jacket but Id like to see Patagonia make the fleece two color R2 jackets like you use to.

May 13, 2021

Warm but not bulky

Its my go-to fall/spring jacket, especially for cold mornings and eveningspacks up easily if the day gets warm to fit in a large purse. I love that its sleek, warm, and comfortable with enough stretch to move with me.

May 10, 2021

Super versatile

I normally wear a medium in almost anything but the large fit perfectly. Wonderful fabric - light weight, warm, with a tight hood great for wind. Seems to cover a range of temperatures perfectly. And very attractive on top of all that.

May 6, 2021

Perfect hoody

This hoody is outstanding. Love it. Provides perfect amount of warmth in all types of weather. Perfect to layer under a jacket or alone.

May 3, 2021

Cozy. Wish it came in a high vis color

Super cozy. Decent wind protection with the tech face. Just wish it came in a high visibility color. Much safer in the mountains

April 23, 2021

Really Comfortable, but Fit Big

Fit really long and the bullets around the check are for someone who is not an extra small. Really soft on the inside and I like the outside finish! Wish it was shorter in the torso and smaller in the chest.

April 7, 2021

Perfect for activewear as well as loungewear

Great fit , wear and look for every activity

March 26, 2021

Flattering fit and sooo comfy

This hoody checks all the boxes: 1) warm, 2) flattering) well constructed tech fabric.

March 1, 2021

Great Layer

This is the best fleece layer I have ever owned. Its super warm, the hood fits under a helmet seamlessly with lots of good lower face/neck coverage for cold conditions. My favorite part: its slim fitting AND long. I'm 5'5 125lbs and the XS comes down just over the top of my butt. Its amazing.

February 28, 2021

Bad fit for petite women

This was a terrible fit for me. The back of the jacket is really long? And the middle is super tight. I bought it because my husband bought one and has worn it every single day since he bought it. He swore by this jacket but it was an immediate no go for me. Too long too tight and just not functional in the way I needed it to be.

February 5, 2021

My top favorite color

I always looking for a cobalt blue jacket and I am a BIG fan of patagonia, finally I got this R2 techface hoody from the internet. I found this jacket very versatile and super warm. I am always feeling cold, but with this jacket I have to unzip it to let the air in to cool down a bit, great job patagonia, keep up the good work

February 2, 2021

Perfect jacket!

I bought this jacket for my daughter. She wears it at the ranch while training her horses. This piece can be layered easily under a vest or jacket. She loves it so much that I bought her another one in a different color. Please make more colors, especially the cobalt, for the fall.

January 26, 2021

Super for colder days outdoors

Stretchy, airy and breathable!

January 25, 2021

Daily Go-to!

My scuba suit is body snug and keeps me warm hiking, playing paddle tennis and XC skiing in Vermont temperatures that hover near 20 degrees without needing a top layer. Amazing under layer, too, for AT, Alpine or simply kicking around the house. I bought two and rotate them daily: they are my COVID uniform/security blanket and I look sleek and put ... Read Moretogether all day long. LOVE R2!!!!

January 23, 2021

Why no chest pocket for women?

Patagonia why does this not have a chest pocket? The men's version does. A chest pocket for phone, etc would make this perfect. We need pockets too!

Hey! Thanks for taking the time to write this. You make a great point and we really appreciate this feedback. We've passed this along to our Design Team so hopefully this can be taken into consideration for future iterations of the Hoody.

Great gear weird fit

Super warm, very comfortable, and doesnt collect dog hair. That might be a weird thing to ask, I know, but it doesnt, which is great. Love it, but it fits really long. I wish it was just a little shorter and bigger in the head area. Overall though, a really great purchase.

January 15, 2021

Lightweight but super warm and soft.

This R2 is great! I've used it over my thermal base layers under my snowboarding jacket and I've been so warm and comfortable on the mountains (Colorado Mountains) I also used it for some backcountry/hiking snowboarding and it was fantastic bc it keeps you warm, but wicks away sweat so you stay dry. I love it. I ordered an XS at first and... Read More had to exchange it for an XXS.

January 12, 2021

Favorite jacket

I love this jacket. I bought one a couple of years ago that I wear all the time to play tennis in outside when its cold. I bought this one everyday! I will try not sweat in this one.

January 6, 2021


I absolutely love my hoody! The material is light weight yet the coverage is 100%! I recently wore mine when I went snowboarding, sleighing and walking in the snow and I cant explain enough how comfortable I was wearing this hoody. I highly recommend this purchase.

December 17, 2020

Worn every day since purchased

I was on the fence with purchasing the Women's R2® TechFace Hoody, but really like the extended length on the hips, the luxurious interior and the extended neck coverage with the hood when zipped. Unfortunately, Im not liking the cold zipper against my neck and chin when fully zipped up. I bought two (black & cobalt) because I love everyth... Read Moreing else about this product, but hope this can be revised in upgraded versions. Its great as a layer underneath a Macropuff or on its own.

December 2, 2020

Loved it

I loved this jacket but the color wasnt good on me at all - maybe too bright for my coloring, even though I liked the color by itself. I wanted the purple color, but it wasnt available. I like the R2 jacket ( the one I already had is size M and I grew out of it during the SIP) so much that I decided to see if this color would work; unfortunately, i... Read Moret didnt, so I returned it. Hopefully, next year Patagonia will make it in purple again.

October 28, 2020

Light weight

Light weight but warm. I really love this jacket

October 16, 2020

Great jacket, warm, light, stretchy and layers well

This hoody is great. Feels warm and cozy, love the trim fit. It layers wonderfully with the R1 crew, I wore both yesterday for a walk in damp, windy 50 degree weather and felt great, toasty but not overheating. You can also layer easily over it, which is what I will do when it gets colder. As other reviewers mentioned, one drawback this jacket has ... Read Moreis the lack of zipper protector, and zipper can be really annoying. R1 actually has the same problem. Fix it and you have the perfect jacket, Patagonia!

October 12, 2020

Favorite coat, very versatile!

Fantastic purchase, so versatile. I reach for this coat all of the time. I wear it inside around the house as a sweatshirt. I wear it outside for warmth when its not too cold. When its colder I wear it as a layer under my nanopuff jacket. So comfortable and flattering. Im 54, 140 pounds and the medium fits me perfectly. Would definitely recommend!

September 8, 2020


This is my favorite jacket. I grab this more than another jacket in cool weather. Its great for hiking and running in cold weather and a solid mid layer. Fabric is great and so warm. I bought my normal size, M. Im 59, 150 lbs, 36C and M fits perfect.

May 7, 2020


Absolutely LOVE IT!!! I want every color haha!!! If I could give it 6 stars I would!!!

February 14, 2020

Warm and cozy

I wasn’t able to try the hoody in the open air yet ... but with indoor climbing activities it prooved itself as a warm, flexible and breathing partner. Long fit that keeps back hips and bottem warm. Can’t wait to take it outside!

Sizing and Style

For my first ski trip I wanted to have warm and functional clothing. After quite a bit of research I settled on the R2 hoody for my mid -layer. Unfortunately, I am returning both the size medium and large. I'm new to Patagonia so I did follow their size chart. Ordered the size large, but was shocked at how long the torso was on my 5"4&qu... Read Moreot;, 135 pound frame. The front sits a full six inches below my hip bone and around 4 inches below the bottom of my butt. A very frumpy and unflattering look. The sleeves were very, very long and too baggy for layering (on top of). The medium was better in the length because it was tighter. Too tight especially in the chest. Mind you, I am a 36B. A very small "B" cup. So, that one didn't work either. I couldn't layer under it. Yet, the sleeves were still way too long. It's like I'm a medium/large size. No thumb holes either. The hoodie has no draw string pull. Strange because the R1 does. I have a tiny head. A child's size head and it's too big. Staying warm, but not overheating is a priority for me, but I don't want to look terrible doing it. Maybe they could make a petite size in the future.

Chicago Verified - Warm and Wonderful

November 12, 2019


I have refused to take this off since purchasing it. It is just warm enough for aerobic outdoor activities. I’ve worn it on some runs at 10-15F and been very comfortable with this plus a base layer on top. It’s warm but not too warm. Have yet to use it in the rain. Looking forward to using it for ski season and for Nordic skiing. 5’4 and 135 lbs an... Read Mored the XS fits perfectly with room for a thicker wool base layer underneath.

Unbelievable fit. My favorite layer

Unbelievable fit. My favorite layer by far!!

November 9, 2019

Wanted to love it.

Love the fleece, weight, warmth and feel of the R2 Tech Face but the cut is slim and long (past my buns) it makes me feel like I'm wearing a pencil skirt with no give. My other gripe is the pockets are really shallow, which makes the inside drop pockets pretty narrow. I'm probably on the smaller side of XS and my hands barely fit to reach... Read More into the inside drop pockets. I also r had to really think about pushing my hands into the outside pockets to get coverage over the full back of my hand. Again, I really wanted to love it as I think it would have performed well if not for the fit. Me: 5'0", 104#, size XS

November 8, 2019

Warm for the weight

A good, mid layer jacket. I do feel that the zipper when zipped to the top tends to irritate my neck and does not have much form, but other than that it seems to be a good purchase.

November 8, 2019

R2 Techface

This jacket is great for layering. Very lightweight, yet warm. Wore it this 20 degree morning with a vest underneath and perfect. I got the hooded version and the neck zips up very high, which I like for keeping neck warm. I got a medium that allows me to wear heavier clothes underneath too. A small would have fit snug. I am normally a size 4-6.

October 14, 2019

Best fleece ever

I LOVE this fleece. Seriously one of the best products I’ve ever seen/worn. The fit is perfect. It is so warm and soft on the inside and the exterior seems very sturdy and sheds dog hair which is my favorite feature :). I do wish it had thumbholes—my only suggestion to make this jacket better.

I am completely in love with this hoodie. The fabric is fantastic. It is very sturdy and comfortable and stretchy, and the inside is so nice and soft and warm. The fit is fantastic. It is form fitting but not super tight and easily layered over a lightweight fleece for added warmth. I have three long-haired dogs and the fact that this fabric sheds ...

And how about a beautiful purple color please? In terms of sizing I am 5’4” and 120lbs. I typically wear an extra small which is what I purchased and the fit is perfect.
