Description

Minimal design for maximum possibilities.

Whether you're layering up for an alpine ascent, spring skiing in May, or strolling across town in the cooler parts of fall, you'll be happy while wearing the Patagonia Men's R1 Fleece Hooded Pullover. This versatile fleece's PolarTec Power Dry polyester delivers supreme stretch, wonderful warmth, and blissful breathability to make it a great stand-alone top. Or, if you're doing something more extreme that day, this slim-fit pullover's simple design prevents bulk and compresses easily, which makes it a great midlayer for colder excursions.

  • PolarTec Power Dry polyester is stretchy, breathable, and it wicks moisture in order to make this an ideal baselayer or stand-alone piece in brisk weather
  • Microfiber face is smooth, so it's easy to layer over this pullover, and it quickens drying time
  • Slim fit makes it easy to layer a waterproof shell over the R1
  • Seams are constructed off the shoulders to eliminate bulk and rub when you're wearing a backpack
  • Fabric is very compressible for conveniently compact transportation
  • Zippered polyester mesh chest pocket

There's nothing like it.

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

Climbing. Biking. Mountaineering. Hiking. Skiing. Cruising the town. Trust me when I say there is nothing like it. I have tried multiple pieces (from Stoic and Columbia) I was able to purchase for less and should have just bought the R1 to begin with. It is surprising warm for its weight and dries extremely fast.

This updated version of the R1 is great. I love the stretchy material under the arms, wrists, and at the waist, which allow for amazing mobility. When it comes to the balaclava, it is pretty tight to the face but it isn't uncomfortable. I also like that the zipper comes up the side of the face, versus coming up the chin like before.

It doesn't surprise me that guides and outdoor enthusiasts everywhere are wearing the R1. So don't make the mistake that I did. Buy the R1. It's far worth the investment.

Best base layer ever

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

This hoody is by far the best base layer I've ever purchased. Its warm, yet very breathable...its perfect for trudging up hill. I haven't had a chance to use it for ski touring, but with the built in balaclava I can imagine its going to be amazing. Probably gonna buy a 2nd one.

I live in the R1

Overrated

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I really wanted to like this fleece. It's the perfect layer with a sweet hood but Patagonia does not fit my body well. 6'3" and 180lbs picked up a Large and the chest was too tight. Other items I have tried on from Patagonia the XL is too baggy. It has to fit perfect for $160.

Warm and light, makes me feel like ninja

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

I got the black, and with the hood up, I am a ninja. A 6ft, 230lb ninja in XL, fits pretty good. Keeps warm well, and fairly easy to regulate temperature when hiking by opening zipper. Blocks wind pretty good.Light enough to keep with me in my pack all the time. Was it worth $160? I don't know, probably not for my uses. Plus I wish it had side pockets. For the intended use of design, I am sure this is awesome. For a Joe Blow hiker like me, save the scratch and get 2 merino pullovers instead.

You said it fits pretty good, but in what way? Is it a touch too big or a touch too small? Tight in certain areas, loose in others? I'm 6'1" 195lbs so trying to decide between a L and XL...thanks for any advice!

Great hoodie!

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

I am 6'2" and weigh 225 pounds. The XL fits very well. I have long arms and was pleasantly surprised to discover that the sleeves are easily long enough. Love Patagonia products, the sleeves are always long enough and range of motion is wonderful! The zipper functions well and vents very effectively when things get heated up. The material dries extremely fast and breathes well when you need it most . In addition to all of that, it's packs nicely, has a very functional hood an eliminates the need for a beanie. I would recommend this hoodie for any outdoor venture or outing, particularly skiing or any snow sports.

Love it!

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

I bought the 2013 model, I love it!

I use it for all my multipitch climbing trips. Keeps me warm and seems mildly windproof as well. The hoodie is great and now I don't have to bring a beanie anymore.

It's the standard for a reason.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Warm, breathable, great fit, everything you need and nothing you don't (except the chest pocket). It's too warm to wear for most approaches in the Pacific Northwest even in winter, but once I get into the high country I swap out my sweaty base layer for the R1 and it keeps me toasty and dry for the rest of the day.

The Cap 4 hoody is basically the same thing but a lighter weight material. If it's particularly warm or I'm going to be working hard I use that instead.

Just get it.

Maybe the only Patagucci item worth $$$$

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

This baselayer really is so good it's worth the astronomical price. I'm 5'10" 160lbs and the medium fits slim, but this is meant to be a base layer. The hoody is a great replacement for a hat in most conditions, but zipping up all the way into balaclava mode isn't comfortable. Otherwise, this R1 does it all and it does it very well.

Great layering piece

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

I really like like this fleece. It's slim and warm all at the same time. I like that it zips up over my face and I don't always need a separate balaclava, although there is a small amount of constriction that takes getting used to. I'm 6'1 with a 41" chest and 32" waist, and the medium fits well.

Love it

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

I was skeptical that this would be as good as the reviews, but it really is. This is one of those top 5 pieces of gear I can't live without. I love the form-fitted hood. I love the underarm panels that are breathable. It stays warm but doesn't get sweaty. I also like how long the shirt comes down, no plumber's crack here.

I love this pullover

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

Like I wrote it in the review of Patagonia Merino 3 Midweight Zip-Neck Top, I wore this along with the base layer on my recent trip to the Grand Canyon. I knew that this would be light and not bulky at all during day hike, and it was very important when I was carrying a pack of 40 lbs plus for 3 nights and 4 days. I love this pullover because it is so light, very fitting and easy to put on and take off. No complaint whatsoever. And one of my fellow backpackers was impressed so much, she told me that she ended up ordering one for herself as well. I will put this on for any cooler temps.

Color and Sizing Review

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Only a color and sizing review for now...
Color: the "Wax Red" shows much differently in person than the pictures here. The actual color looks very much like it does on Patagonia - it is more of a burgundy. Here it appears a brighter red... must be the flash or something. Check the Patagonia site for actual coloring.

Sizing: I am 5'9" 200lbs - a stockier build with a 45-46" chest and 36" waist and I am between an L and an XL. In this case the XL fits me well. I also have an R1 full zip jacket and that fits well in an L. (Other references: Houdini and Cap 4 Hoody worked in XL, while Nano Puff and Down Sweater are L). Hopefully that helps others.

AMAZING FLEECE

  • Fit: True to size

This fleece is once of the best/durable/high quality fleeces I have ever owned. Great for any cold weather activity. Keeps my warm and dry.

The platypus of mid layers

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

...and it's a good thing. This is really what got me into technical mid layers. There are just so many things to like about it.

The Good:
- totally awesome/ semi bonkers design. it's the whole package... that consists of a little bit of everything (hoody, pocket, grid, thumbs).
- durable. after a few years of abuse, it's still just fine .

The Bad:
- since it's synthetic, and I live in it, it's starting to smell. A merino wool version would solve that, but I don't think Patagonia makes em.

I will toss this over a t shirt to walk around in the mornings, and then use it as a stand-alone piece for bike rides. When there's rain or cold, I wear it under a jacket because it doesn't take up much space.



So Ive been waiting for these to come on...

So Ive been waiting for these to come on sale for a while and was interested in the Blue (Size: XL), just curious as to why the S and XXL are on sale, but the XL size isn't? I'm very interested in getting one to ski and winter hike in but don't want to pay full price, it was a bummer when saw all available sizes were on sale but the XL.

Best Answer Responded on

Like Skynet in the Terminator movies, the Backcountry.com website has become self-aware and knows you want that XL so bad. It is taunting you!

That is how I feel sometimes when the size I so desperately need is the only one not on sale. But I eventually calm down and realize that the computer is not trying to destroy me. The truth is that pricing on particular sizes and colors is often determined by availability and perceived demand. For right now the XL is not on sale but as our stock comes and goes it is very likely that it will go on sale again sometime soon. Please keep checking back with us.

And while we are on the subject, if I had the T-1000 on my tail, I would want to be wearing the Patagonia R1 Fleece Hooded Pullover for optimal escapability.

(That one's for you Ty)
