Patagonia Women's R2® TechFace Jacket

September 13, 2021

Cozy and Gorgeous

Looks great even over nicer black pants. Very warm. Cobalt is gorgeous!

September 9, 2021


Love this R2, fits great. A bit more plush than some of my other R1s. Also Alpine blue color is Vibrant and makes me happy! I purchased this in excellent condition from Patagonia worn wear

Way too long

This jacket is an amazing shade of blue and the fabric is very nice. However I don't know how tall you would have to be to make it look right. While it fit mostly, the length was way off both in the sleeve and the body.

Warm and Lightweight!

So soft and comfortable. This is a warm garment that is also very lightweight. I like the navy blue color that I purchased.

April 5, 2021

Great Weight

Happy to finally have an additional color selection. Great weight that is more than a light layer and less stiff than a jacket. High collar and flattering fit with room to wear a thick tee. Well designed details and favorite fabric.

April 3, 2021

Great jacket

This jacket is lightweight but warm. I purchased a small instead of an XS so Ill be able to layer.

March 29, 2021

Great jacket for versatile weather

The DWR finish was perfect on my last trip to CA. There's just enough fleece on the inside to warm you up while not overheating. If you don't like the slim fit feel, sizing up will make it roomier but will make it longer in the sleeves/torso.

February 27, 2021


Lightweight and warm. Flexible material, can push up sleeves as needed at work. Slim fit. Love the R1, but the R2 is probably warmer for those mountainous hikes that start out cool in the mornings.

February 26, 2021

Warm, light and comfortable

I absolutely love this jacket. It is so light but also super warm. I wore it by itself and as a layer under a puffer jacket. The fit is super flattering. I have a long torso and it fit perfectly.

February 8, 2021

Soft and comfortable

I love my new R2 TechFace Jacket. Its stretchy, soft and lightweight material makes it my go to jacket.

February 1, 2021

Perfect in every way

I absolutely love this jacket, it fits perfect, I can wear it over any item of clothing from sweaters to t-shirts, its warm but not suffocating or too hot this jacket is my new go to!

December 31, 2020


I returned it because the fabric feels like stiff plastic. Not cozy.

We're sorry to hear that this one was a disappointment, but we appreciate the feedback. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions about your return, or alternate fleece jacket options. We'll be happy to [help](!

So stretchy and comfy

Quite warm for a thin jacket (helps that it's fleece inside). Love the stretchy material and feels so nice to wear walking or moving around a lot. I'm 5'4, 180lb, C cup with a long torso & I felt like this jacket is on the long side and covers quite a bit of my butt - which I really like! Will be wearing this a lot on casual outi... Read Morengs & running errands.

Nice form fitting design

Jacket is well made and she likes the look except the green color is not quite as dark and full as shown in the photo. On the down side after she waited for nearly a month for delivery the jacket arrived, still with the theft-prevention device attached which took some effort to remove without damaging the fabric.

December 1, 2020

I wanted to love - but didn't

I was looking for something black, and relatively stylish to walk and bike in for cooler weather. I also wanted to support Patagonia bcs they are a company that gives back to the planet. But the design and fit of this jacket was bulky- it fell low on my waist (at an odd place) It was a weird fit- and for the price point it just didn't knock me... Read More out. So I returned it.

November 18, 2020

Super Comfortable

Love this jacket. Great for chillier days in Maine and a great layer for when it gets really cold!

November 13, 2020


It's a fitted large. Keeps me warm walking at 45-55 degrees.

November 6, 2020

Truly versatile

I bought this bc I was looking for a jacket for stand up paddle boarding in chilly weather. It turned out to be great for that, and then so many other things. Now I also use it for horseback riding. Its very flexible and stretchy and also soft and warm without being too heavy. This is a great staple piece youll wear for so many different things.

September 6, 2020

Perfect weight

Love this jacket, perfect light weight but warm. Love the fact that it is water repellant, has big pockets and it stretchy and fitted but comfortable.

August 13, 2020

A matter of principle

Patagonia has always been one of my favorite outdoor brands because of its innovativeness, quality, fit, and company ethos. But I have a really, really hard time paying premium prices for technical pieces when the men's version costs the same amount and has more/better features. Why doesn't the women's version of this jacket have an ... Read Moreexterior chest pocket? Why does the men's version come in so many more (and better) colors? And don't advise me to buy the men's version, because I am (a) tiny and (b) not built like most adult men and it won't fit me (I've tried). This is really frustrating. I've been needing to replace an ancient R2 (with a chest pocket! You used to do it, so I know you can do it!) for literally years, but I just can't bring myself to buy this one because spending this much money shouldn't come with a side order of resentment. Please do better.

very comfortable

I se it for biking alot and like the protection from the wind

Color, Style, and Functionality

I love the teal color I purchased this jacket in! It's a pop of color without being too showy. I love the way R2 looks and feels. It's perfect for east coast winter months when it's not too cold but is pretty windy. This was my comfort jacket this year. I felt like it was breathable but there does come a time when it becomes unwearab... Read Morele due to the warmth of the spring. It does cover the entirety of my butt (and I'm 150 lbs) but I honestly think the jacket was flattering enough that it still worked. I feel like this was the jacket I didn't know I needed.

December 30, 2019

Not for curvy girls

The quality and the color were on point. However, I’m finding that Patagonia gear does not cater to petite woman that have curves. The fit was completely off. Returned.

December 28, 2019

New Favorite

I've used this for Nordic skiing and I was comfortable the entire time, even during periods of rest and bursts of intensity. The built in stretch and slim fit makes it one of those jackets that never gets in my way. Barely noticed I was even wearing it until I remembered how comfortable I was!

December 28, 2019

Barely wear anything else

LOVE this piece and bought multiples after getting the first one. Love the stretch in every direction. Love the slightly water resistant fabric that makes this an optional outerwear coat. Fantastic as a layer as it is cut slim. Collar zips all the way up so cozy warm around my neck. I have 2 blue and 1 black and can't believe how I hardly wear... Read More anything else. Excellent for traveling on a cold plane with side zip close pockets to hold your passport. I wear it under my ski parka for downhill and throw it over a t-shirt with jeans for around town.

November 28, 2019

Is soft, warm, non bulky,

Is soft, warm, non bulky, lightweight, fits well under other layers. On the extra small I ordered, front zipper when zipped up isn't stiff and zipper head doesn't poke into my neck or chin then, like many jackets do.

November 20, 2019

loved it!

Bought the teal in L ad the black in XL. Sent the teal back and kept the black. L was too tight. The XL is everything I hoped it would be. Planning to wear it as a mid layer for the cold Nebraska winters. I am 67 years old and a pudgy 5' 6". I hate to be cold and enjoy daily walks even in the winter.

November 12, 2019

Love the TechFace fabric, jacket not so much

I am returning the jacket for the hoody. The jacket has a princess cut on it that makes for extra room in the chest and pecs, kind of an odd cut. The R2 hoody has the seam in the right place so I will go for that.

November 9, 2019

So. Cozy.

This jacket is my new go-to layer. I wear it all week at work and then I layer it under my big coat as a base layer when it gets freezing and then I find myself in it on the weekend around the house just to be cozy. I’m normally between a medium and a large but I went for the large to be able to fit a long sleeved shirt under it when it’s extra bit... Read Moreter out this winter.

WS R2 TechFace Jacket

I wear it for running in cold weather and love it-fabric is supple, I bought a small (Iwear size 4) it is roomy which I like. It is warm and protective in the wind, but not hot. Perfect running jacket.

November 6, 2019

Perfect Fall coat

This coat is perfect for fall and in between weather. It’s a very light weight, but keeps you warm at the same time. I wear it in the rain as the water just beads up on the jacket and keeps me from getting wet!

November 6, 2019


I am 5’5 @ 135lbs and purchased a medium and it fits really well. I really like how it goes down and covers the glutes. Also, it is thicker than a regular jacket. I took it for a 3 mile hike at 45 degrees Fahrenheit and it kept me warm.

November 5, 2019

Beautiful jacket - odd fit

I really wanted to love this jacket. Read all the reviews and ordered. The navy blue is beautiful. Pattern of the fleece is flattering and I liked how the jacket felt in the shoulders and arms (I have very long arms). I’m 5’6 and a 123 lbs. with no hips and the jacket was uncomfortably tight in the hip area. Because of the tightness in the lower ar... Read Moreea, it made the top bunch up. I was going to just keep it anyway, but my hubby said it just looked odd. So, I’ll be returning it and will hopefully find a different one to try.

Great jacket!

Not only is this jacket warm yet light weight, but it is figure flattering. I purchased it in navy blue. Once again, very happy with my Patagonia purchase!

Love the feel

I love the feel but was a bit disappointed in the fit. I wear a size small in all my recent Patagonia purchases, but this jacket was snug in the hips, limiting how much I could wear under it. I sent it back for a size medium. As others have stated, I would prefer the back weren’t so long. It wants to hang out beneath my Patagonia rain parka.

Thanks for the feedback Rebecca! This TechFace Jacket is a "slim" fit which may have contributed to the different dimensions compared to other small sizes. We're always happy to facilitate a quick and easy [return]( or exchange for you, so don't hesitate to reach out!

October 5, 2019

Love the fabric; love Patagonia

I originally ordered the XL and it was quite large. The large is better, but since it hits at low hip, it tends to be a bit snug in the hips. The sleeves are long with no thumb slits. They will still cover any wrist gap when layering and wearing mitts.

September 24, 2019

High expectations, not delivered

I own two R2 tech face jackets in XL and I love them. This time I ordered R2 tech face hoodie in XXL for more space for layering. The sleeves were narrower than on XL jackets, I hardly squeezed my arms in - no extra layers. Disappointed, I had to return.

Soft and durable all at once

It's hard to find a layer that keeps you warm and cozy as well as safe from the elements, but breathable at the same time!

August 15, 2019

Comfortable and fits right

My jacket is a perfect in between layer. I am 5'9" and I love how long the back is. The sleeves are a tiny bit long , but it help to keep me warm. The inside is a brushed fleece that is fairly soft and the outside is more rugged and smooth. I expect it to last for may years of hiking and backpacking. Zippers are smooth and pockets are wel... Read Morel placed. It is not the warmest mid layer that I have but it works well with layers.

May 8, 2019

Light weight and warm

Awesome color, super light weight and warm. Love that the surface is smooth but has some texture to it. Only complaint is that it is a bit tight around the hips, and the pockets are oddly small. 5'3" 115lbs 32D, usually wear XS or S.

May 8, 2019

Love it

Love this jacket. Thin but warm. Nice lining. Bought a second color I liked it so much. Slim fit is flattering.

March 14, 2019

Why so long? Would be 5 stars

I really like this jacket. It looks much nicer than it appears on the photos, and it's super soft inside. Everything about it is perfect, except that it is too long in the body. Why is it made so long? It comes clear to the bottom of my hips in the back, and at least 1 1/2" past where my leg creases in the front when walking. I don't...

I tried the regular R2 as well, and found it to be too long in the body as well.

February 15, 2019


This jacket is a dream for cold weather hiking and backpacking because it's warm but breathes when you begin to sweat.

Love this Jacket!

This jacket is just as warm and movable as the regular R2 jacket, but it looks so much more professional. It's more sleek than the fleece and more versatile.

Very warm for a lightweight outer layer

I got this in black and it makes for a very stylish outer layer when it isn't raining or freezing cold outside I Initially got it for hiking, but found it too warm for that purpose (I run hot), so I bought the R1 jacket in a brighter color for hiking (perfect), and kept the black R2 for wearing around town.
