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 Super cute Fun vest to wear over a long sleeve shirt this fall or over a light weight jacket when it gets cooler. Loads of compliments

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute vest The vest is really cute and comfy. The collar is a little high and the material is a little stiff (due to the windproof fabric), but I'm assuming it will soften up with time and wear I normally am a XS in Patagonia and ordered XS for the vest, and it fits really nicely. Since it's a regular cut it allows me to layer up but still look feminine and form fitting if I decide to wear less layers or by itself. Get it while it's on sale, I'm glad I did! For reference I am 5'4" 120 lbs and ordered XS

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! Perfect for that light chill or using it as a layer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful vest, but don't size down. I heeded the recommendations of other reviewers and sized down for this vest. I'm 5'5", 128, 34B and S is my usual size. I ordered an XS and it was the right length, but otherwise too small all over. Just wanted to add my sizing experience into the mix. I would recommend ordering your usual size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs big I love this vest!! It's a lot warmer and more heavy duty than I expected! Its "stiff" at first but it definitely softens up after wearing it a couple times, the material and quality is amazing, Patagonia never lets me down, I'm 5 ft 2 in. 130 lbs with a 35 1/2 inch bust, I normally wear a size small in Patagonia (but the size small in this vest was huge on me!) I had to return it for the XS and the XS fits perfect, if I were you I would size down unless you want to layer underneath it. I don't like to bulky layer so that is why I got the XS and it works out perfect with a long sleeve or short sleeve underneath, it's cozy to lounge around in or to wear for casual wear in the cold weather, I hope this helps!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too stiff I purchased the Retro-X vest after returning the Retro-X jacket hoping it would still keep me warm, but be more comfortable. Unfortunately, it's just as uncomfortable as the jacket version. Way too stiff and constrictive. I'd go for the Better Sweater vest and layer up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm and Snug I have well-worn old retro-x vest from a few years ago. Sometimes you need to replace an item. Anyway, ordered the size in medium, which was my previous size. Anyway, I received it and the armpit area was huge. So I had to return it and order the small. It was same for the Better Sweater Vest. It ran a little big near the armpits.
