Best Fleece Midlayer!
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is an ideal midlayer. The long sleeves with thumbholes and hood with built in balaclava are ideal for regulating temperature while hiking in cold conditions. Also, the r1 fabric is the best fleece in both warmth for weight and breathability available(in my opinion)
What all others are measured by
- 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. 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. The hood fits well and does well under a helmet. Thump-loops are the icing on the cake when putting on my soft-shell. Keeps the sleeves from bunching up.
This piece, or my pull-over version finds it's way into my pack on just about every outing.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
I get cold, easy and often. This jacket has an excellent build quality.
The sleeves are plenty long enough to make the thumb loops comfortable. The offset zippered hood is comfy and adds great warmth for minimal extra weight. The ability to tuck the jacket in just increases the functionality.
Bottom line, the great fit and excellent warmth are worth the 160$ in my opinion.
So, thumbholes or no?
So, thumbholes or no?
Sorry for the confusion- this model does have the thumbholes!

Has anyone noticed any changes to the sizing in this from the last model? i have last years model in an XL. It fits me fairly loose through the mid section and fairly snug in the upper body/shoulders. Was wondering if any changes to sizing. Thanks.
Sizing and fit didn't change between this year and last, so the XL should still fit you well. There might be some small differences, but the designers aimed to carry the same fit forward.

would this fleece work well for running with conditions 40 degrees Fahrenheit or cooler?
The R1 hoody is a warm layer designed for aerobic activities in cold temperatures. It may be a little too warm in 40 degrees though as you move down in temps it should be more appropriate. How much heat your body produces will be the tell-tale as to whether this hoody is appropriate for you running in 40 degrees. For reference, I overheat in this layer running in 40 degrees, and instead use a lighter layer, such as the Patagonia Capilene 3 Crew and layer a Patagonia Houdini windshirt when the winds pick up.
Micah , thanks for the answer. I'm trying to justify having this piece for more than just hiking. Appreciate it!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs large
I wore this only once ice climbing but it was awesome and I want one. I'm 6'6" and 170lbs and the large was long enough without being baggy! Even the sleeves were long enough for me to have my thumbs in the holes. I had an R1 1/4 zip forever and I love how warm it was with a jacket over it, and how well it breathed when wearing it by itself.
