Patagonia Reversible Flannel Jacket Review
If you haven’t been out to the stores yet this season, I have news for you, flannels are back! As I love to stay up with the trends, I’m finding the Patagonia Reversible Flannel Jacket to be one of my favorite pieces of the season. Although I’m not using it for trail running, skiing, hiking, etc., it’s been great for walking the dogs on cold fall mornings and hanging around the campsite. This jacket/flannel is filled with a Thermogreen insulation that is perfect for temperatures between 40-70F, typical fall temperatures and depending on where you live, winter temps as well. In case you get stuck in small rain storm or snow storm, Patagonia has added their DWR (durable water repellent) to this jacket which will keep you dry for the most part, but it’s not waterproof.
As for the style, I have received a ton of compliments from all my peers and new people I meet, so if you are looking to up your stake in style, this is a great option. If you’re looking for a little change from the flannel, you can always reverse the jacket to get more of a plain color scheme. I haven’t found myself changing much to the plain side at this time, but if that changes, I’ll keep you posted. The one downside to this flannel/jacket is I that I can’t wear my short sleeve button downs with the jacket, this would be a little too much plaid, at least that is what I am told…
Continuing with Patagonia’s philosophy of recycling and acting in an environmentally conscious way, the reversible flannel jacket is made of the following recycled materials.
Body: 8.1-oz 100% polyester yarn-dyed flannel with a Deluge® DWR (durable water repellent) finish. Lining: 2.3-oz 100% recycled polyester plain weave. Insulation: 60-g Thermogreen® 100% polyester (90% recycled). Recyclable through the Common Threads Recycling Program
