Take soft and reliable fleece insulation, combine it with a durable softshell for weather protection, build it all with dependable and high performing materials, and you've got the new Patagonia R2 Techface Jacket. Perfect for cold weather climbs, mornings on the skin track, and any other high-output cold weather pursuit you can dream up, the R2 Techface does the work of two jackets to keep you comfortable and warm in the mountains. The face is durable, stretchy, and water-repellent, with the same breathable paneled design found in the rest of Patagonia's Regulator series, giving you insurance against unexpected snows while keeping you comfortably warm. The inner fleece is heavier than that found in the R1 Techface, making this jacket ideal for those that run cold, want to cut down on layers, or plan to be adventuring frequently in frigid conditions.
For storage you've got two convenient high hand pockets that are harness and pack compatible, so you can reach for snacks or gear without slowing yourself down. The stretchy cuffs are snag resistant and push up easily, but sleek enough to easily slip under a shell when you want to use the Techface as a mid or insulating layer. One of the nice things about this jacket is that although it's got a softshell face, it's breathable enough to be layered for multi-season use.
