You might think that the Patagonia R4 jacket is just a jacket with a fancy name, but it’s more than that. It’s unrestricted comfort wrapped into a soft insulation of R4 fleece and designed to keep you warm even in cold wind.
Imagine walking out on a cold morning while being wrapped in a soft, warm jacket that moves with your body as you push against a cold wind. The R4 jacket has you covered.
A Jacket With Stretch
One thing that’s annoying about most jackets is that they can feel stiff and restrictive. And the warmer they are, the more restrictive they feel. Some almost feel like you’re wearing a straight jacket. Bend over to pick up something and the darn jacket feels as though it’s trying to strangle you.
Unlike many jackets, the material of the Pantagonia R4 has a bit of stretch to it. That means you can be as active as you like without having your jacket tug against you and slow you down. No more having to put up with a jacket slowing down your circulation. Wearing a warm jacket doesn’t have to feel like wearing a vice grip.
- R4 fleece fabric which is windproof, super-warm, and stretchy
- Reinforced stitching that reduces ugly zipper bulge in the front
- Collar and cuffs that are lined with micro-fleece to reduce cold drafts from entering jacket
- Two pockets on the side and one in front with zippers
- Shoulder yokes are offset to prevent them from digging into your shoulders while carrying a pack
A place I recommend for buying the Patagonia R4 Jacket is at Moosejaw. Aside from their low prices and great customer service, they have a unique guarantee they call their “Living Will”, which allows you to return any product in sell-able condition at any time “as long as you are not dead.”
Also, if you find a better price within 24 hours of purchasing any products there, they will refund you the difference. They’ve been around since 1992; and if you want to read a different and entertaining “About” page, head on over there and read the “About Moosejaw” page.
