A versatile vest made from 100 % polyester (50 % recycled) sherpa fleece with a bonded windproof membrane to keep your core warm in cool and windy conditions.
Across the whole of Nevada’s basin and range, the views seem unstoppable. And so does the wind. Patagonia's classic, wind-blocking Retro-X® Vest keeps your core cozy when the air is restless, but lets you roll up your shirt sleeves when you build up heat on the steeper pitches. This versatile full-zip vest features a windproof membrane bonded between a thick 100 % polyester (50 % recycled) 1/4-inch-pile sherpa fleece and a moisture-wicking, 100 % polyester (50 % recycled) highly air-permeable interior mesh lining with Polygiene® permanent odor control. The zippered chest pocket, collar and wind flap are 100 % nylon with a weather-shedding DWR (durable water repellent) finish, and the zippered side handwarmer pockets are lined with brushed-polyester mesh. Hip length.
