The perfect combination of Polartec fabric technologies.
Thanks to the burly Polartec Wind Pro fabric in strategic high-exposure zones, the Patagonia Men's Piton Hybrid Fleece Jacket can perform as outerwear on moderate days or be layered beneath a hardshell when the weather turns really nasty. The moisture-managing Polartec Power Dry fabric in the body stretches for complete freedom of movement and has a smooth jersey face that easily slides beneath outerwear. Plus, the hand-warmer pockets are specifically positioned to allow access while you're wearing a pack or harness.

Nicely fitting warm fleece
I know that fleece jackets are a dime a dozen.. Well in most cases, they are quite more costly than a dime. But if you're in need of one, and you know you need at least one, you had better get a decent one. I like this hybrid more than the ones I usually get because the material isn't puffy but it also keeps you warm. Pretty decently with just a baselayer and this in around 40 degrees. Some people dislike Patagonia's neck zippers and say they are too tight, but I say it's a good thing. Great when it's cold and if not, unzip the neck part. Simple.
Perfect Spring/Fall jacket
Needed something lighter than my Arc Gamma for temps above 40ish and this fits the bill perfectly. It lets a lot of air through, which can be good or bad depending on what you are doing, but I find it to be just right. The DWR finish has kept me dry in moderate rain and it has never felt damp from sweat, which is impressive. Tried the R1 as well but this felt more like a light jacket whereas the R1 seemed like a light sweater. I'm 6ft 200lbs with broad shoulders and the large is perfect.
