The soft, easy-wearing warmth of the Retro-X® Vest insulates your core, blocks wind and frees your arms for mobility. It features a soft, windproof membrane bonded between a thick and fuzzy outer layer of ¼”-pile sherpa fleece and an interior, moisture-wicking, highly air-permeable mesh lining. The resulting fabric sandwich traps heat, blocks wind and feels smooth and comfortable against the skin. The zippered chest pocket, collar and wind flap are made of 100% nylon with a weather-shedding DWR (durable water repellent) finish. The zippered side handwarmer pockets have a brushed-polyester mesh lining for extra warmth and a smooth feel. Treated with HeiQ® Fresh durable odor control, the Retro-X will keep you welcome among friends at the end of the day. Hip length.

DWR (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated, enabling the breathable barrier to do its job. Patagonia has long relied on a DWR with perfluorinated compound (PFC) but we have been searching diligently for an alternative because of its harmful environmental impacts.
We began making recycled polyester from plastic soda bottles in 1993–the first outdoor clothing manufacturer to transform trash into fleece. It was a positive step toward a more sustainable system–one that uses fewer resources, discards less and better protects people’s health.
Today, we recycle used soda bottles, unusable manufacturing waste and worn-out garments (including our own) into polyester fibers to produce clothing. And we offer recycled polyester in a lot more garments, including Capilene® baselayers, shell jackets, board shorts and fleece.
Using recycled polyester lessens our dependence on petroleum as a source of raw materials. It curbs discards, thereby prolonging landfill life and reducing toxic emissions from incinerators. It helps to promote new recycling streams for polyester clothing that is no longer wearable.
