Pros:This jacket breaks more wind than a pro-bowler after chili night

Cons:Not much, Patagonia has the all-elusive lifetime guarantee

The Bottom Line: Other jackets still leave you colder than an eskimos butt, but the R4 is for real


Being a Patagoniac, I cant really talk bad about the R4 jacket. The jacked is a favorite of mine, especially in winter for skiing.
The R4 technology has great windstopping power, i was once in a tornado wearing this jacket and I thought that somebody had just left the fan on. Although the jacket is very heavy and not really meant for summer or spring time hiking, it is stellar when it comes to late fall and winter skiing, climbing, hiking, or whatever activity you do.
The jacket has 3 main pockets, two hand pockets, and one chest pocket which comes in handy for wallets or whatever else you may carry.
The pockets are not fleece lined, but lined with mesh, same as the inner lining of the jacket.
Unlike the R2 jacket, it has fleece all around and does not have any of the breathable cotton that the R2 has on the sides and on the sleeves, this is good though because it holds in the heat.
The polartec technology keeps you very warm, and the strong zipper goes all the way to the top, where it has a fleece face lip to keep your chin extra warm.
Advantages:
-High quality Polartec, Windbloc Technology
-3 pocket design
-variety of colors
-softness of fleece
-does not pill
-LIFETIME GUARANTEE

Disadvantages:
-sucks if your a sheep

Remember the Patagonia lifetime guarantee, the other day I was in Boston, I noticed that my sleeve was ripped on a Patagonia fleece of mine, I took it off, gave it to the clerk and they gave me about 70 dollars for a coat that was aobut 4 years old. I then got the discount on the R4
JUST BUY IT
