Protect the ocean so it can protect us
Our future is tied to the ocean. Its shared seas connect us through food, culture and sport. The home of amazing, abundant life, it’s also a powerful climate solution. Yet the practice of bottom trawling threatens to destroy this precious resource—bulldozing our ocean floor, undermining small-scale fisheries and deepening the climate crisis. Let's end this destructive practice, starting with an immediate ban in marine protected areas and inshore zones.
We do our best to process and ship orders within 1-2 business days (Monday-Friday, excluding holidays).

Finally Bought It
Ive wanted one of these since I started buying Patagonia products more than 30 years ago but never pulled the trigger. I got this on sale which made it even more appealing. Cant wait for the weather to get cold enough to put it on. Like every piece of Patagonia clothing I have ever bought over the years I know it will perform just as advertised. Bu... Read Morey one for yourself. You wont regret it!!
Be careful with the sizing!!!
Retro fit. Be careful! There's plenty of room in the arms, but if you're carrying a little extra weight around your torso, the elasticated waist means the fit is off. Seeing as I want the flexibility of wearing a jumper/hoody underneath, and like a relaxed, oversizrd fit, if your not super slim, size up. If your bodyshape is 'popeye&... Read More#x27; stay true to size. Definitely worth ordering 2 (if possible), or trying one on beforehand. Other than that massive issue, looks amazing.
Ordered an XL, but when I tried it on it was too tight in the body & too short for my liking. I am @ 6 ft & weigh @ 175. I returned the item & ordered the XXL (The return process was smooth & as soon as Patagonia received notice of my return via USPS it started the process of replacing the return item). I prefer the fit of the XXL a... Read Mores it allows for an undergarment & extends well below my waist so it fits more like a coat than a jacket. Overall, I am pleased with the product & the service.
What I was looking for for cold and windy weather
I bought one in size M and another in size L to be able to fit an R1 or even an R2 under it. I am going to need them for a trip to Patagonia Argentina in the month of October, where the cold and wind will be the most likely, they have an appearance that not a drop of wind will enter, thank you Patagonia for creating such technical clothing
this is to help everyone with the sizing decision. i'm about 160 cm in height and 66 kg in weight. based on Patagonia JP website (which btw provides flat measurements), XS size has: 47cm, 65cm, and 81 cm in width, rear length, and sleeve length (i suppose from the base of the neck to the end of the sleeves) respectively. however, based on my... Read More actual measurements -- 50 cm (pit-to-pit), 48 cm (waist area), 65 cm (rear length from base of neck downwards), and 81 cm (sleeve length). overall, fit is good given my size. there's little allowance in the waist area and might be a concern for those with bigger bellies (mine is okay for now hehe). hope the above helps for those choosing a size.
Comfy and warm
So, basically this jacket is my bathrobe. I throw it on in the early morning when I come out in sweat pants to make coffee. It is actually so warm that I end up wearing sweat shorts! The quality is top notch and the design thoughtful. Great materials as well. The only thing that is even remotely less than stellar is the sizing, which is a little re... Read Moretro. Its a looser fit than most modern garments, especially in the performance outdoor sector. Then again, its not really a performance piece. Happy shopping!
Why so short?
This fleece is meant to block the wind and keep the wearer warm. So why design it to be so short? It needs another 1 or 2 inches of length.
Hi Andrew, we really appreciate you taking the time to give us this feedback. We want you to be comfortable and warm while using your gear. If you feel that the Classic Retro-X Fleece Jacket is not meeting your expectations, please feel free to begin a [return or exchange](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) at your earliest convenience.
soft, comfy & warm; just a little snug
I have wanted a Patagonia fleece for awhile and grabbed one that was on sale. I really love how soft and warm but lightweight it is. My only complaint; it runs a little short in length. Sleeves are fine, it just creeps up when I sit in the car. Otherwise, awesome jacket/fleece.
Warm, comfy, cute
Im a 5 foot 7, 165 pounds woman and average build. I have a 33 inch arm length and the sleeves are perfect if even a little longer which is comfy for cold temps. I purchased the medium when it was 50% in store which came out to $114. Great deal! The jacket is comfy and so warm, you definitely can wear just a t shirt under it when its about 40 degre... Read Morees out. Its a bit too warm for anything above 50. I got the Dark natural/sequoia red version with the blue trim. Its not as dark a natural as seen online but the color is cute and I feel like a fuzzy teddy bear in it. The medium was the right size because it looks good without layers but allows a hoodie if I really wanted to. The small would have been super fitted and uncomfortable under the arm pits and a hoodie would have made me feel like the Michelin man. I wear this indoors at work when its cold and outside walking around outside. The windproof layer is soft for me, not stiff and scratchy like others say. I bought this for my bday bc of the sale and I always wanted one. Its a great value especially at this price.
Well made - love the details and colors
My only complaint is the collar is tight when I zip it all the way up. Its so tight it restricts breathing. Never experienced this before and I have jackets that zip with a high collar. Perhaps its the colored accent band of fabric but its uncomfortable. I have a normal size neck and no double chin, so..
overall comfortable and warm, but windproof???
the upper portion of the sleeves is a bit big, but I think its a look, and its built for movement, so, I am alright with it. the only part I find disappointing is the windproof part, it is definitely not windproof, I was on my bike, wind definitely got through, and I felt the wind. mesh barrier is not windproof.
Hello Clyde, thank you for your review. We're so sorry to hear that the windproof feature on this jacket is not working. If you think it could be a warranty issue, you're welcome to reach out to [customer service](https://help.patagonia.com/s/?_gl=1*1nujro*_ga*MTE3MzgxOTU4OS4xNjQ3NTMxMTc0*_ga_1SYPSJZYJ5*MTY3NzI0NzA0Ni41NzQuMS4xNjc3MjQ3OTgyLjAuMC4w) and we could set you up with a return or exchange.
I really wanted to like this...
I really wanted to like this jacket and keep it, but the way back top shoulder panel is stitched really constricts how it fits me. Now I realize this is just a "me" thing, but if you have broad shoulders I found that flaw to really compromise my movement. I tried the L but that was just way too big. So unfortunately I had to send this bac... Read Morek. I gave it 4 stars because the quality is excellent, the overall look is excellent, but that one design flaw really inhibits how it fits on me.
The jacket is cool but the sleeve size is huge for a medium. The sleeze size seems designed for an extremely large man - doesn't fit the rest of the jacket...especially for a medium too.
Hi Sadler, we apologize for the issue with sleeve length. Please feel free to begin a return or [complimentary exchange](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) at your earliest convenience.
Warm and practical
This jacket is perfect for someone who plays outdoor games such as sporting clays and Olympic sports such as skeet and trap in the winter. The stiff lining is great for keeping out the cold and avoiding shoulder snags. The light weight and the sleeve cut work together to give great mobility.
Warm, Warm, & Warm
Did I say warm? This jacket blew me away with its warmth. I couldn't believe it. I thought I would need multiple layer underneath but definitely not the case. A light/thin sweater underneath is all I need in 30 degree temps and I am not the least bit cold. Go for it, you will not be disappointed.
Fit is weird, long arms, short torso and runs on the smaller side. The inside is not comfy at all. Its like a shell jacket with no comfort or cushioning on the inner portion of the jacket. Had no idea it would fit that way. Not worth it for me, but thats just my thoughts.
Hi Kim! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear about the disappointment with the jacket. We appreciate this feedback and we'll share this with our design team. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Cozy Fleece Jacket with Wind Block
Im 5 foot 7 inches at about 140 lbs choosing a size small, medium was more comfortable but looks like gorilla arms and less form fitting. This fleece is very warm and comfortable.

Terrible fitting sleeves
Cool jacket that seemed quality, but unfortunately had to return due to fit. Form fitting in body with somewhat narrow chest, upper back, and shoulders but arms were super baggy.

Read Moreeath), I would have kept. Additional note to add is that the jacket just felt kind of stiff (not really any stretch).
Thank you for this review, Landon. The stiffness you're feeling may be due to the membrane inside the jacket that makes it windproof. In any case, we're glad you've returned a jacket that wasn't going to make you happy. Please let us know if we can be of any help!
Best jacket I own!
Out of all of my winter jackets this is by far the warmest. Pair with a shell and you can take on anything. This jacket replaced a Retro-X I had for over 16 years that finally gave out after countless days in the field and 100s of washes. It did not have an easy life but it never failed me. Great product and an outstanding company.
This jacket is so warm and cozy. The inside is lined with wind proof material and I have no doubt that it will keep me warm.

It feels cozy to wear and hi... Read Moregh quality ! Love this sherpa jacket.
Interior seams not the same as the Retro X vests
I love my Retro X vest and have worn it religiously for the last 8 years and have no plans of stopping. I recently added the Retro X jacket to my closet based on my satisfaction with the vest and having to replace an old windwall from a competing brand. I was very disappointed when I put the jacket on and felt an interior seam across my back. I t... Read Moreook it off to find that the interior seams are not flush but rather finished butted plain seams- that protrude inward by a healthy quarter inch. You can definitely feel the seam while wearing it. Where as the Retro X vests have a flat finished seam that is undetectable while wearing. As much as I love the style and functionality of these products-I'm considering returning this because I don't want to feel the seam across my back every time I wear it.
Hey Dace, thanks for the review. We'd like to collect some pictures from you to make sure we don't have a warranty issue on our hands. Please reach out to our [customer service team](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) so we could take a look. Thanks!
Fit is Strange
It fits great on top and the sleeves but the jacket is too short. I don't understand why they didn't just make it an inch longer. Maybe they explain this to us. Many people have complained about that in reviews that are for some reason not here anymore. It's too bad.
Hey George, thank you for your feedback. We're suspecting that you're thinking of a different jacket because we do not delete reviews unless we no longer make the product. If you find the length to be an issue, you're welcome to begin a return on [this page](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Awful Fit For Tall People
If you are a taller person, stay away from this jacket. Aside from the inner lining being uncomfortable for the price, this product runs extremely short and is not meant for anyone with longer torsos.
Hi Cole, we're so sorry to hear about the fit issue you're experiencing with the Classic Retro-X Fleece Jacket. Please feel free to begin a [return or exchange](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) at any time.
I'm 6'0 180lbs, usually between a M or L depending on the brand. I find the M to be too tight around the waist area and also too short. The L was far too roomy in the waist area, although I liked the fit in the shoulders better. Really love this jacket just not sure it's the right fit for me
Warm and comfy
Great jacket, I love it like most patagonia gear. The only caveat for me is that it feels a bit rigid with the liner inside. Other than that, it feels and fits perfect. Most importantly, it is warm!
Thank you for this review, Ivan! What you're feeling is the windproof membrane, which can feel a little stiff inside the jacket, but most folks find it's worth it. Please let us know if we can be of any help!
Bought my first retro x in 2015. Always liked the style of this line and was happy to see they still sold it. Im 5 foot 9, 180 ish pounds with slightly athletic build.

Hey Baba, thank you for the feedback on our Classic Retro-X Jacket. The lining helps with the windproofing properties of the jacket. If windproofing is not a priority for you, we recommend checking out the [Men's Retro Pile Fleece Jacket](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-retro-pile-fleece-jacket/22801.html?dwvar_22801_color=DNAT&cgid=root) in it's place.
Cant wait for cold weather.
This is my second retro jacket. The first one is several years old (maybe 10?) and still in daily use during cold weather. Im pretty sure it wont wear out in my lifetime but I need it in two locations and decided to get a second while it was on sale. Its great. I like it. Nothing more to say. (Apostrophes seem to be disabled.)
Fuzzy and warm
Hi Love this jacket! I bought the retro x vest last fall and love it I wear the vest for work and play outside When I saw the jacket on sale I had to have it I like the thick wind resistant fleece on the retro x and the smooth liner makes it easier to layer with a flannel or sweater Cant wait to try it this winter
Great jacket (even if it's somewhat short
I purchased the Retro-x in Pelican w/Dark Borealis Green in XS and S to compare sizes and decided to keep the XS. The Retro-x is said to be a regular fit but in reality, it's quite roomy around the shoulders and long in the arms but short in the body. Also, the Pelican color shown in the product photo is darker than the actual Pelican color. I... Read Moren reality, the Pelican color is lighter and a bit more beige. Although the size S fits well enough, I prefer the fit of the size XS as it looks a bit more professional (I'm about 5' 6", 140lb, 38" chest, 28" waist). For those that are taller, definitely stick to the size S as the XS will be too short for you. I also bought a Northern Green Men's Recycled Sherpa Fleece Hoody in XS. It has a much better fit and length but the chest area feels a little tighter as it does not stretch like the retro-x. On a side note, the Northern Green color is spectacular and if Patagonia makes the retro-x in Northern Green, I will definitely buy it. An interesting fact is that the color and fleece quality for 2021 and 2022 are different. Based on the information shown on the paper tag, the size XS is a 2021 model and the size S is a 2022 model. I preferred the lighter color shade and the pile length/softness of the 2022 but liked the 2021 for the thickness of the fleece as it feels more durable and may be less prone to matting in my opinion. Differences in color and fleece quality between the 2021 and 2022 models: - Color: 2022 Pelican is lighter than 2021 - Pile Length: 2022 Pelican is longer than 2021 - Softness: 2022 Pelican is softer than 2021 - Thickness: 2022 Pelican is thinner than 2021
Classic feel. Feels great when wearing in cool weather with moderate to slightly strong winds.

Curious if they had a different lining how that would make it feel, like fleece outer, membrane middle, and a different lighter fleece for inner.
Thank you for this feedback, Steven. Yes, it's the windproof membrane you're feeling that is a little stiff. We'll pass your suggestion about adding a different lining on to our product team!
Good quality - my only issue is the size illustrated on the ordering work up runs small
Hello Glenn, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We are sorry that the sizing did not work out on the Retro-X Jacket. You are welcome to [exchange](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it at your convenience. We are also available to provide garment measurements if needed.
This is the 6th time Ive purchased this coat. Its my all time favorite coat. Its super warm and is great at blocking the wind. This year the coat runs very small. Ive always purchased a large and this year it was very snug. I didnt try it on in the store because I was racing to catch a plane to Iceland. I was disappointed when I put it on when I go... Read Moret there and it was so snug. I barely had room for a fleece underneath it. Fortunately the coat is so warm it wasnt so much an issue. When I got home I bought another one in a larger size. The XL is a little big but I still love it.
Great classic looking jacket
At first, I wasnt sure about the jacket looking at it on the hangar at the store but after trying it on you feel like a boss. I am 65, 225, so tall and slim and this jacket in an XL fits perfect, more of a standard fit rather than slim and tight fitting. (Ive learned through the years I have to try on Patagonia stuff first because I vary from L or ... Read MoreXL based on the fit. I wear a L Nano Puff instead of XL since the L is much more slim fitting where the XL nano felt too baggy.) even though peoples biggest complaint is that it isnt super cozy on the inside like how it would look based on the outside of the jacket, it is very comfortable and very warm. I have noticed it cuts all wind better than my nano puff. 10/10 jacket
Runs smaller than my 2 older Retro X
I ordered this color because I always wanted this one , I have 2 older Retro X jackets and this new one is smaller in the body snd chest , its almost like a fitted jacket while my others are a loose fit , I had this one in an xxl a few years back and it was too big , now I should have ordered another xxl
We're sorry to hear that the new jacket fits differently. We did make this jacket in a "relaxed" fit long ago, but revised to a "regular" fit about a dozen years ago.

Perfect, just be aware of fit.
I originally ordered a medium, but after being suspicious of its size, I tried on a small in-store and returned. This is a sweet jacket, if you are around my height and weight, 5'8" and 140 pounds, a small is perfect for a fitted look that can go with anything. A medium is perfect if you want to wear a hoodie or layer under it, but really... Read More baggy in the arms because of the size up. Hope this helps.
I really really wanted to like this jacket/fleece, but there are too many small issues with the design of this jacket that I am going to return it. First the positives: - The quality of the stitching and materials is excellent. - It is quite warm for the most part minus in certain instances outlines below. - Decent price if picked up on a sale. No... Read Morew the negatives: - As others have mentioned, the jacket is quit short. That made it ride up my back constantly while driving or sitting. So I had to continuously pull it down. - The shoulder to elbow section of the sleeves is humongous which makes a lot of fabric bunch up in you arm pits which makes for an uncomfortable fit. - Because it is so short and the sleeves so huge, it does not retain heat quite well when outside in the cold. - The fleece SHEDS. Like crazy. Just putting it on and off results in a ton of fleece fibers flying off. - Pocket are very small and awkwardly positioned. It is quite difficult to easily put a phone and wallet in the packet due to the very small opening of the pocket and the pockets themselves being smaller than what I'm used to in other similar products. - The elastic around the wrist was rough for me to a point it got painful after a couple of wears. Only happened on one side. - The pocket is more than normal space towards the back so when you pull stuff out of your pocket, it gets stuck in that extra space. - The chest pocket is tiny. It can't fit an iphone 10 max with a cover. Again, I really really really wanted to like this fleece and I was so excited when I first got and I tried so so hard to look over all the relatively small weirdness. In the end there were too many issues to be happy with this jacket.
Thank you so much for sharing this detailed review. This kind of feedback is incredibly helpful both to other customers and to our design team. We're so sorry this jacket was a disappointment when it arrived! We see you've been able to return it. Please let us know if we can help you find something that you'll be happier with!
A Really Cool Jacket!
So, me being the chic, monochromatic, navy blue and black clothes wearing guy that I am was admittedly pretty skeptical about buying Patagonia Men's Classic Retro-X Fleece Jacket but that didn't last long.

Warm and Functional
Super Warm and Functional! I bought this retro fleece jacket as a replacement for one I have been wearing nearly every day for the last 10 years.

Bought this for my significant other but it was just stiff the material just isnt soft to the touch.
Hi Carmen, thank you for sharing this review. What you're feeling may be the heavy-duty windproof barrier in the jacket. It does soften over time, but if he'd prefer something without that stiffness he might check out the Men's Los Gatos Jacket, or the Men's Retro Pile Jacket, both of which are fleecy but have a softer hand since they don't have that barrier. And we'll be happy to help you [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) this one if it doesn’t work out for you!
Purchased the green camo version. A little short in the arm but layering (with hoodie) helps and its very well constructed. I do wish there was an interior pocket but exterior jacket pockets are really deep and can fit several items without giving you that bulky feeling. Chest pocket is great for shades. Im happy with my purchase.
Wind proof and very warm.
I bought my first Patagonia fleece jacket in the early 80s. It had a rough outside finish with fleece inside; it looked like Id skinned a sheep Very warm jacket as long as it wasnt windy. The new Retro-X is warmer thanks to the smooth inner layer that is very effective at keeping out the wind. I may look like the Cookie Monster (I bought the blue o... Read Morene) but it is very warm and comfortable to move around in. This will replace a down puffer jacket as my go-to cold weather outerwear.
The retro x is great. I was concerned about the fit after reading some of the other reviews. I am 6'4" 220# with a 37" sleeve length and 44L jacket size. I ordered the XL (1/2022). It fits perfect in the arms and I can wear a sweater under it no problem. The length is maybe an inch and a half too short but it is not noticeable and so... Read Moremething that most tall folks are used to dealing with. The length could be in issue in the XL if you have a heaver build.
Looks are deceiving
Very stylish good looking jacket, but it is not very warm or comfortable. The inside lining is rough to the touch. I would never wear this with a short sleeve shirt, and despite the warm fleeced look the jacket doesnt retain body heat very well.
Hi Charlie, thank you for providing this review. We're sorry this jacket didn't work for you! What you’re feeling is the inner windproof barrier, which may feel a little stiff. If you’d like a fleece jacket without that kind of lining you might check out our Retro Pile Jacket or our Los Gatos products, which are softer inside. And of course, we'll be happy to help you [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) this one if you wish.
Great first version
I have the earlier version without the unsightly contrasting outside pocket. I have used it for over ten years and its a great part of my outdoor kit for climbing, sailing and casual. Still looks great. BUT I am waiting for a new version, more stretchy for movement, without that ugly pocket !!
Comfy and warm my go to fleece jacket. Love the external breast pocket and the huge side pockets, I can get 2 1L water bottles in just one pocket (just a reference for how huge they are). In terms of fit I bought a large, I'm 6ft with a 42in chest. The fit is exactly what I would be wanting from this style (I prefer slightly baggy not skin tig... Read Moreht) . The elastic around the cuff ensure sleeves will stay on my wrists with enough material in the sleeves to cover past the knuckles when pulled over my hand. This is great as they stay in place even with outstretched arms reaching for things. The body of the jacket allows enough room for another layer underneath maybe 2 but I might start to feel like the Michelin man at that point. Overall very happy with it so far and would recommend.
Best heavy fleece out there
I have the retro x Large from back in 2000, and this is heavier and an improvement- better than ever. Nobody makes a jacket like this - I mean nobody.

My old 2000 Retro Large was perfect for a mid weight sweater underneath. Still, I think this is the best Bomber fleece out there.
It's a no from me
I was really excited about this jacket, and if you're under 6' you should be too. Unfortunately I am not. The sizing of this is really weird. I understand its a retro design and sizing was different when this was first designed. But yeah, as some of the other reviews from tall people mention, this is way too short on me. It's also ba... Read Moreggie is very odd ways. The arms, especially around the biceps are huge for example. and yeah this did not look good on me at all. I wish Patagonia made a tall version of this. This is also a stiff coat, but if that's what it takes to be windproof, which it does seem to be, then I can't personally complain about that. But yep, this is going right back to Patagonia unfortunately
Efficient Cut and Toasty Insides
I compulsively purchase fleece products - I first bought this item in the Pelican colour, and liked it so much I also bought the navy, black and natural versions as well. A real sickness. (Note that the Natural colour does look like . . . well, like one is wearing a sheep (or a mod vicuna), so wearing it out in town for errands or a drink may yield... Read More hurtful/inappropriate comments, depending on the crowd). But this jacket is awesome outdoors or on the couch taking an unscheduled nap. Feels sort of cold when I first put one on and then, a few minutes later, just the right touch of warmth. It is cut at the waist just below the belt, so it is great in a car or in a large suv. The sleeves are generous in length.
The jacket is very short. The XXL fits my brother, who is 65, but both the body of the coat and the sleeves are inches too short. The sleeves are above his wrist bone when hes standing with his arms straight at his sides. The body of the coat almost reaches his belt. It looks like a petite coat. We will definitely return it. (That being said its a ... Read Morecool jacket and seems to be nice quality.)

Best Item of Clothing Ever.
This jacket is my daily driver of outerwear. The build quality is second-to-none. It’s super warm, looks great and you can fit a bottle of wine in each of the side pockets. (I’d recommend buying on the larger side so you have room to put hoodies and smaller fleeces underneath!) honestly this is like the only thing I wear now.
