Let the R1 restore your faith in fleece.

Ask any climber, mountaineer, or backcountry skier and you'll quickly discover that Patagonia fleece jackets hold an iconic distinction in the mountain community, and the Men's R1 Fleece Jacket only fuels the fire. With a warm and breathable Polartec Power Grid fleece fabric, the R1 is a go-to jacket for the full spectrum of mountain endeavors. This jacket breathes when you sweat during a hard climb, it stretches when you're ladder-hooking your way up a steep slope in deep powder, and it compresses easily when you're packing for a peak-bagging mission on foot. Inside and out, the R1 exudes a sort of versatility that few midlayer jackets can match.

  • Polartec Power Grid fleece
  • Polygiene permanent odor control
  • Slim fit
  • Off-shoulder seaming
  • Zippered hand pockets
  • Internal drop-in mesh pockets

Patagonia R1

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size
  • Height: 6'0"
    Weight: 150 lbs
    Size Purchased: M

Bought a black, size medium R1 on sale. I was going to pay full price so the savings made it even better. I'm thin at 6' tall and 150 lbs and the R1 is pretty snug around my torso. It does take getting used to. The pockets are higher up on the body and it does feel like your elbows are flared. The quality is tough to beat though.
The zippers are silky smooth all around and the stiching looks like it will last a long time. This is my second R1 and I have owned many other brands - north face, marmot, Eddie Bauer.
None of them come close to the fit and finish of Patagonia


Really enjoying this layer

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

I purchased this jacket not too long ago and took it out for a spin on a day that was fairly brisk (start of the hike was in the 40*s F) I had this, a merino 1 silkweight base layer, and a nano puff vest, and I felt perfectly comfortable the entire time. Beyond the function, this jacket also looks pretty cool and could definitely be worn causally.


Light. Versatile. Sexy.

I'm an avid climber and cyclist. The R1 is perfect for scaling mountains, but also for anything else you might end up doing--including hitting the town after cragging or your last century. For a fleece, it does a great job at breaking the wind as well, if your using it as a jacket, but is thin and light enough as to not be restricting as a midlayer. The thumb holes are awesome for chilly belays, waiting for your third, but also don't get in the way when you don't want to throw on some gloves on a ride to the grocery store. I have a North Face fleece that is twice as heavy and thick and this fleece is assuredly warmer. My wife likes to point out that the bright blue, while super ugly, is good for being seen while on the bike. Probably the only feature I haven't hit is the awesome wicking power. Sweating up a storm on that sunny face figuring out that crux move? No problem--the R1 will wick all that away, leaving you dry and comfy for that next shady belay. Also, it is pretty comfy with the sleeves pushed up (and they stay up). I'd buy it again and again.
