Between autumn ascents in the Valley and winter laps in the Wasatch, whether worn alone or under a shell, our Men’s R3® Hoody warms like a wood-burning stove. Compressible and resilient, this reversible Regulator® fleece hoody is made of an exclusive Polartec® High Loft™ polyester fleece that wicks moisture, dries quickly and caches heat when temperatures plunge. Worn pile side out, it has two handwarmer pockets and an external zippered chest pocket; worn smooth side out, it has two zippered chest pockets. The clean-finished R1® cuffs use spiral-seam construction, so they’re easy to push up; and elastic binding at the snug-fitting hood, hem and handwarmer pockets further seals in warmth. Sonic/Stitch seam construction reduces bulk on the center-front zipper; a soft, kissing-welt center-front zipper garage is easy on the chin; offset shoulder seams stay clear of pack straps.
  • Exclusive to Patagonia, this Polartec® High Loft™ fleece provides exceptional warmth, dries quickly and has breathability appropriate for use as an outer layer or midlayer
  • Snug-fitting hood with elastic binding locks in heat; underarm gussets and raglan sleeves for increased mobility and comfort under a pack
  • Reversible style has removable tags and reversible center-front zipper with soft kissing-welt zipper garage at chin for next-to-skin comfort
  • Pile side out: single zippered chest pocket and hoody-style handwarmer pockets with elastic binding. Smooth side out: two glued-on, zippered chest pockets
  • Center-front zipper has Sonic/Stitch seam construction to reduce bulk and improve suppleness

bluesign® Approved Fabric

Patagonia has worked with bluesign technologies since 2000 to evaluate and reduce resource consumption in our materials supply chain, and to assist us with managing the chemicals, dyes and finishes used in the process. bluesign technologies, based in Switzerland, works at each step in the textile supply chain to approve chemicals, processes, materials, and products that are safe for the environment, safe for workers, and safe for the end customers.

In 2007, Patagonia became the first brand to officially join the network of bluesign® system partners.

Any fabric you see that’s bluesign® approved offers the highest level of consumer safety by employing methods and materials in their manufacture that conserve resources and minimize impacts on people and the environment.

Recycled Polyester

In 1993, we adopted fleece into our product line made from post consumer recycled (PCR) plastic soda bottles. We were the first outdoor clothing manufacturer to do so. PCR® clothing was a positive step towards a more sustainable system – one that uses fewer resources, discards less and better protects people’s health.

Today, we’re able to utilize more sources for recycled polyester and offer it on more garments such as Capilene® baselayers, shell jackets, board shorts, and fleece. We now recycle used soda bottles, unusable manufacturing waste, and worn out garments (including our own) into polyester fibers to produce many of our clothes.

Using recycled polyester lessens our dependence on petroleum as a raw material source, curbs discards and reduces toxic emissions from incinerators.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You'll get a lot of hugs. This is an incredibly soft and comfortable jacket, and very warm when layered (or sans-wind). Zipper placement doesn't bother me much, but it is exceptionally prone to ripply bacon-zipper. Still a 5 star fleece with the quantity of hugs you'll be pulling in.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice fit - Poor zipper design I like thie fit, warmth and comfort. I was very disappointed to find that the metal zipper touches my chin and lower lip. It's not comfortable. This will cause frostbite here in Colorado and Wyoming winters. The zipper needs to be redesigned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great layering piece, or non-windy jacket Bought two months ago, have used on several hiking trips in northern New England (mid-late fall). Love it, super soft, warm, fit is good, packs down to a reasonable size, breathes well. As mentioned in other reviews, this piece does not block the wind. It doesn't purport too, so no negative marks, but just be aware - if you're out of the wind, it's great, but as soon as a breeze picks up, you feel its bite - make sure to pack a light wind shell if you could find yourself in windy conditions. Subjectively, I feel it's wind blocking is inferior to the R1s I have, so I was a little surprised that the top tier in a product portfolio would have inferior wind blocking, but that's just me, and again, it doesn't claim to be a wind shell, so no negative marks there, just a surprise given expectations I had coming into the purchase based on my experience with other products in the range. Likes: fitted fit layers well, doesn't get in the way. Stretchy enough that movement is unencumbered. Anatomical fit of the hood is excellent. Warmth to weight ratio is good, less than my nano-puff, but it breaths better - fair trade off. Weight and stuff size are acceptable for the warmth. Dislikes: the whole reversible thing feels like it was driven more by marketing to provide a point of differentiation against the MH Monkey Man range (and others) than actual technical features. I'd rather save a few ounces and loss the four extra pockets and zippers. On pockets - I'd love to see the handwarmer pockets bumped up a bit so they can be accessed while wearing a pack. I was a little surprised they didn't have zippers, but I don't really care.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable Great layer, works well under and over other jackets and baselayers. Breathable and warm. In cold windy conditions, a thin shell locks the warmth in. Hood fits snug. The reversible aspect does make a difference in warmth. Short material on one size and longer, warmer material on the other. Material at the cuffs of the sleeves works great to take on and off hard shell outer layer. Highly recommend this sweater for both urban and backcountry use. Recommendation for future model R3: maybe move the tag to the inside of a zipper closed pocket. Currently, you have to cut the tag off to reverse the sweater without having the tag flailing in the wind. I am 5'8'' and 150lb. Small was very trim fit but slightly snug in the armpits, I went with the medium and am happy with the fit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Heavy, not that warm Ended up returning this, I'm in between sizes with most Patagonia gear, and this is no exception. Super tight shoulders, not that warm, and pretty heavy for the benefit of the piece. Does breath really well, but overall was disappointed. The zipper is huge and feels uncomfortable when all the way up against you chin. The hood is kind of awkward looking too, and I found the extra warmth from reversing the piece to be kind of gimmicky...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gotta Admit: I am an R3 Groupie Three years ago I went to my Patagonia Store and found two R3s on clearance. The deal was so good I snagged two. They were warm, very warm, but bulky. They had good pockets. I figured that it would be a nice fit in between the all-versatile R2 (these are a staple of my winter wardrobe for layering) and the R4 (great for Vermont and New England, but not too practical). What I found was that the R3 was too bulky and too warm for much use here in the Wasatch. It just didn't work. Fast forward to Spring 2016. I get the sale Email and skim down to see that this was one of them. I was intrigued and read more. A reversible jacket from Patagonia? This seemed gimmicky. So I researched more. Found a very reputable independent gear review site that gave this good marks for versatility. In fact, this was one of the top two with the R1 being the other. So I had to check it out. Got my first one and as soon as I got it I put it on. Probably two hours later I finally took it off. It was that comfy and nice. Let me talk about the positives. First, it is relatively light and functions well in a wide range of temps. MUCH better than the old R3. I know that there are fans of the old R3 in colder climes, but for me the old R3 was too bulky and awkward. What happened to my two? I've sold them. Second big positive--a nice hood. The balaclava style means warmth on colder days. Third, this is probably the only fleece I have with FIVE pockets. Granted only three of them are zippered. The hip pockets on one side are open and I naturally put my hands in them. The zippered chest pockets are great for more technical uses and for when I want to secure things. Fourth, the fit is oh so good. Just right. Don't be too scared by the "slim" rating. Unlike other Patagonia items, that are WAY too small, this one has a good fit for me. Next, the collar is high and provides protection. Just note that for some it may be too tight unless you use the hood with it (see below). Last, the reversible idea works and makes this a great piece for technical use and then casual use. It replaces having to bring two jackets--or one jacket and one hoodie. The finish of the fabric is also different on both sides--one "rough" and one "smooth". This is a new concept for Patagonia and overall it is awesome and very innovative for a fleece jacket. That said, there are some refinements I would want to see. First, thumbholes for the cuffs should be standard. This would provide more protection in colder climes and also make it more equal to the competition that adopted thumbholes several years ago in their standard design. Second, it is lighter weight and thus should not necessarily be thought of as "warmer" than an R2. I get that folks don't like that and understand. Third, the collar is such that some folks (including me) need to pull the hood up in order to zip the collar all the way up. It's designed as a balaclava and that means that it is either all the way up or down. Folks may want to check this before buying. Last, and on a related note, the zipper can bite into your lip because it is a double zipper and a bit big. Not an issue for me, but it may be for you. I'm a big fan. This is a great replacement for my older R2s and is very versatile. Love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good except for one thing... When I bought this jacket, I was expecting what it advertised; warm, soft, and layerable. Now that I have it and have used it, I can say that it it is soft and layerable, but warm? No, not really. To give you an idea, here in Atlanta, we recently had a 50 degree day. (In Hotlanta, I know) I happily threw on the jacket and realized, the slightest of breezes, just barely moving air, cut right through. So I wizened up, put on a shell and was happy. To give you an idea of how thin it is, if held up to light, you can clearly see things through it. Not so good for the "warmest jacket in the regulator range".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice! Got it on sale which is always a nice treat. I've been wanting an R3 hoody since I got my wife one, years ago. Looks can be deceiving and in this case they are indeed. It is warmer than the R3 jacket, almost twice the fabric weight. The sleeves are long enough and the fit is snug but not tight. I wish the sleeves were two inches longer with thumb holes! I wish the body was a bit longer. The zipper does indeed end up in your mouth and should be offset, but oh well, so few things are perfect. It is warm and cozy, soft and cuddly. I am sure it will be great in the cold weather, but it is getting warm here now and I will have to wait until next fall/winter. Size Large 6'2" 170lbs.
