Description

Maximal versatility, minimalist design

Patagonia's Men's 1/2-Zip R1 Fleece Pullover is an ideal midlayer for myriad mountain endeavors. Made with Regulator grid fleece, the R1 provides excellent stretch and warmth, while it wicks moisture and breathes in variable temperatures—from alpine approaches to dropping lines in bounds. Patagonia worked with Polartec to fine-tune the high/low interior grid polyester (Polartec Power Dry) to make it even more breathable and compressible than previous years. The standard in layering, this fleece was also improved with lighter weight, micro-grid fabric on inner collar, underarm gusset, and a light-weight Variable Conditions Cuff at the hem and cuffs to improve breathability and dry times.

The R1 is comfy under outerwear and packs because of its offset seams, and the center-front zip has a soft, kissing-welt zipper garage and chin flap. Slide this slim-fit fleece under an outerlayer or as a top over a tee. Use the left chest pocket to store cash, credit cards and an ID, so you hit up the bar after a day on the mountain.

Fleece perfection

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

This pullover is everything I wanted in a fleece - warm, fuzzy, fits well, and lightweight for a fleece.

It's also super versatile - you can you it as a light jacket, as a midlayer, or even as a base (sooo comfy). I also like the attention to detail - less fleece where the thumb loops are, so they don't get all bunched up under gloves if you do that.

Love this Fleece

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I love this fleece. I use it for mostly around the town wear, so I can't speak to how it works as a technical fleece (but from the other reviews it seems to be good on that front as well).

Aesthetically it looks sharp. As anyone who has owned Patagonia before knows, it is going to look great and you will look great wearing it. I purchased it in black, and wow is it a nice black :) Very deep. If we are rating it as we might rate a TV, it would get 5 stars just for how black the black is. But seriously. It looks great.

I'm 5'9 and about 145 with a slim and athletic build. Purchased a Medium and am very happy with it. Fits perfectly. I love that it's a slim fit and doesn't make me look like a box with legs.

As far as the quality. I haven't had it long enough to see how it will hold up over numerous washings, but if it is anything like my other Patagonia jackets, it will exceed my expectations.

Would definitely purchase again and recommend to others.

Conflicted

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I like this thing but the fit is strange and its not very warm.
First the fit. I bought the large. Im 6ft and a soft 190. The body, chest and back area of the R1 are normal. Not baggy. Not tight. Its got that "athletic" cut. I like it. It has a long back that covers some of my butt which I like. However the arms are silly. Im not talking about the length. They are long like other reviewers mention but I like that. I'm talking about the fit. The arms and armpits are almost skin tight. Especially the forearm area. I am not muscular but the forearms on this are almost "next to skin". The biceps are a little looser but if you have "guns" the R1 will be very tight on them. What this means is you can only comfortably put the thinnest of baselayers underneath it. This problem is accentuated by the very constricting armpits. Even a tshirt will feel initially very uncomfortable in the armpit area until things settle together. I always hate this thing in the morning but then I like it in the afternoon.
Warmth: Its not very warm. Its thin and light. Its not windproof (its not supposed to be), the fleece on the inside is in a grid pattern and fairly fine or short. On the outside it has an almost shiny smooth finish. Its the r1. So it is the least warm of the R line so keep this in mind when ordering. My biggest complaint with warmth is that it only allows the thinnest of baselayers underneath. Try putting an m3 under this and you will feel like a sausage--a hot stylin sausage but still a sausage.

Oh--the pocket on the front could be bigger.

Overall, it looks cool. I like it. Im not sure Id buy it again but Im not going to return it. The arms have the perfect look. Overall, it definitely gives off that sporty, expensive, outdoorsy vibe. You can see the quality in the very well stitched and reinforced seams. I used it as a mid layer while snowboarding and it was good. I just wish it was a little warmer or allowed a baselayer to fit better under it. I hope I don't sound to negative regarding the R1. I have it on right now and its cool.
I also have the MH Grid monkey fleece. I like it more than this. Its a little warmer, fancier, furrier, gets a little more attention, the pocket is bigger, and is just more fun than this piece. If you had to only buy 1 get the monkey fleece.

solid mid-layer

warm, breathable, amazing fit. i'm 5'9 and 140, ordered a medium and the fit is perfect.

Base-mid layer. Mid-base layer.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Use this as a stand alone, a base layer, or a mid layer it won't let you down. The versatility of this piece is amazing, and I truly believe this is one of patagonia's top 3 pieces of all time. Great fit, great feel, and great performance. Fits true to size with a slim fitting intention. 5 stars (100 stars in my opinion)

What is center back length of a medium?

My friend and I went riding the other night before winter set in. The R1 kept his temp regulated. It's great, just like this photo.

R1 YEAH!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been an R1 fan for the past 6 years or so. Before the R1, I was a die hard REI Powerstretcher. I switched to the R1 primarily for durability and longevity. If a pullover can last a few seasons (wash cycles) without losing its shape (turning into a blouse), then it's definitely a keeper.

The good ol' sizing dilemma... 6 foot 1 @ 162lbs. with freak arms. I generally go between medium and large. Anyhow, depending on the activity I am doing, snowboarding or hiking, I opted for both sizes. What the... Crazy, I know! The medium fits like a glove. It works great when I am hiking or cold weather trail running with just a t-shirt on or nothing at all; however, when it comes to snowboarding, the medium is just too dang tight, especially over a long-sleeved base layer. Que size large. Shoot howdy, the large still fits snug enough and isn't restricting at all. It's also great to use when chillin' around the campsite as well.

For me, being comfortable is paramount. It took me a couple seasons to get the sizing dialed in, but now I am set.

In love with a piece of clothing

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

The most versatile, all season piece of clothing I own. From the brutal winters of Iceland, to a morning run, or a day at the crag or night by a fire, it will be your go to fleece. Nice athletic fit which makes for the perfect layering, and makes it look great just by itself. You won't regret buying one. Pick it up!

I'm 6'4 and 190lbs, and the large fits me perfectly

Best Fleece in existence

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I climb, ski, hike almost exclusively in this fleece. Breathes better than any other fleece I own, lightweight but warm, durable, washes well. 5'11'' 160 bought the medium and it is tight and borderline too small, but thus doesn't get in the way of harness or snag on anything while climbing/hiking. Slim, stretchy fit. half zip is easy to pull off while wearing helmet. Will definitely get another one.

Only take it off to wash it

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

This piece is great. I wear it for everything: lounging, working out, skiing, rock climbing, hiking, at the bar. Pretty sure I've even slept in it.

The fit is slim; I've had no problem layering baselayers/t-shirts under it as well as other pieces over it. It's not tight in the way that it's restrictive or feels like it is squeezing your body. The sleeves are a tad long (maybe an inch), not so much so that they're irritating but that you're grateful when you reach above your head. I'm 5"11 and an athletic 170; The medium fits me perfectly.

The zippers are great and I love the chest pocket as a way to a) store my phone or b) dump a little bit of excess heat (the pocket holes are laser drilled and I swear it works as a vent!).

I think my favorite "feature" is that it's a grid fleece. It keeps you warm, but the channels from the grid allow for air circulation and moisture transportation. I've always stayed very comfortable in this piece.

This piece gets washed (delicate wash, low heat tumble dry or hang dry) on an average of once a week and it's held up great for the 6+ months I've had it.

At a sale price of $90 it's easily worth it. Hell, even at the MSRP of $130 I'd buy it.

Versatile piece

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I really enjoy the pullover because its so versatile. I've used it as base layer during hut trips and as an outerlayer on dayhikes.

Fits like any other Patagonia piece.

I live in this

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Maybe my favorite Patagonia piece. It's super versatile- I can wear it around the house in the evening when it's a bit chilly, I wear it as an outer layer in cold weather and high output activities like running and mt biking, and as a mid layer when I ski.

Super comfortable. I also love that the material in the wrists is thinner- I hate having multiple layers bulk around my wrists/gloves.

Quality Midlayer

i'ma big fan of the R1 material that patagonia uses. it stretches to move with you really easily, breathes well, and dries fairly quickly. the main differences betwenn this and the full zip jacket are the main zipper, and the chest pocket instead of two waist pockets. this is useful for reducing some bulk where a harness or hardshell pants would rest. however, the quater zip hooded jacket has a better design for these applications (lower waist line with lighter, stretchier material).

Great Material, not the best fit.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

I've got both the R-1 1/2 Zip and Hoodie and I enjoy both of them. They are very good, low profile layers that you can wear under anything. My only problem is with how slim the fit is. I am a thin guy, (5'6" 145lbs) but I have stopped wearing these when I climb. The forearms are tight on me but when used to layer that is fine. When I climb I often roll or pull the sleeves up towards my elbow, especailly when climbing trad, and the wrist opening is so narrow that it cuts off circulation and causes numbness. Other than that specific use I live in these.

Responded on

Matthew, I was just curious as to what size you ordered. We are the same size, and I because of my build, women's cuts are too tight in my shoulders.

Thanks!

Responded on

I wear a small. It is a bit tight in my shoulders as well, so based on possible anatomical differences you might want a medium.

THE lightweight fleece

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

If you're here, looking at this you likely already know about the legendary R1. This thing has to be the industry standard in fleece insulation layering.

The lightweight, breathable Polartec fabric and the grid lined interior packs a super warm punch and sucks the moisture from your base layers when you're working. Initially issued this in the military, I was amazed at just how warm you can be with a 200wt merino base layer, and a R1 with a hardshell over them. It cannot be emphasized enough at how efficient this thing is!

Packs super down and compresses nicely in the pack, It's durable enough to wear around rock and has a nice athletic fit.

This piece finds it's way into my pack on just about every outing.

Used this for work and it's great

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Working as a Doorman in Colorado can be a bit cold. We used this as part of our uniform and it does the trick. It's lightweight yet incredibly warm and comfortable. Works great as a base layer or on its own if it isn't bitterly cold. Runs true to size and breaths really well.
