Patagonia and fleece are two words that have often gone hand in hand. Malden Mills may have designed Polar-Fleece in the 70’s, but it wasn’t until Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard asked them to make a double-face, non-bobble version (known as Synchilla) that fleece was really put on the action-sports map. The term ‘iconic fleece’ sounds dead weird, but if ever was such a thing, the Classic Retro-X Jacket is it. Warm, windproof, breathable and best of all, it’s made from recycled pop bottles, so Mother Earth won’t shed a tear.
