Description

Don't let the cold keep you in. Pull on your R1 Hoody and get outside.

The versatile Patagonia Men's R1 Hoody Pullover works well either as a heavy base layer or a lightweight insulating mid-layer when you ski, climb, or backpack in cold weather. This pullover's breathable R1 fabric wicks moisture away from the body to keep you dry when you exert. Stretch panels underneath the arms let you reach for that bomber hold as you rock climb or maneuver through trees as you ski, and raglan sleeves mean there are no seams to rub underneath pack straps. Patagonia gave this pullover a balaclava-style hood to protect your head and neck in crappy weather and cuffs with thumb-holes to keep wrists warm. An offset front zipper prevents chin chafing—pull it down to dump heat as the day warms up. A stretch panel bottom hem reduces bulk when you wear a harness. The R1 has a trim fit, but it works fine over a light base layer. Stash your energy gel in the zippered chest pocket.

climber best hoodie

This is the best pice for climlbing in the the spring and fall i love the hood because it fits under a helmet and it dosent ride up over your harness . its worm enough to put under a shell fo a littler extra wormth

I'm 5'10'' about 155 and i see there's only a S and XL available. Does anyone know if this will be a good fit? I tried the R1 full zip jacket at the store and it fit alright but seemed to not be long enough...

Does anyone think its worth squeezing into the S?

Responded on

Small might not be that far off if the only problem with the R1 full-zip was the length. The R1 Hoody is designed to be quite a bit longer than the other R1 Jackets. The Hoody is slightly slimmer fitting though so depending on your upper body size and the fit you're looking for it could be a little snug - length should be good though, or more mediums are definitely on their way shortly I'd guess. Hope that helps

What about the women?

The men's small is roomier and longer than I'd prefer (my sizing: bust: 35", waist: 27", 5'9", size 4-6), so I'd love to see a women's version of this. That said, it still is a great product. The balaclava stays put and the neck zip hits in just the right place. Haven't had a chance to wear it out yet but it seems the hood will stay put hiking or belaying... exactly what I needed. Well designed product!

R1 is smokin

The R1 has become a staple to my outdoor clothing collection. I especially like the hood design and the protection from the elements that it offers. I recommend this article of clothing to any outdoor enthusiast. Once acquired, it will seldom be left at home!

What size should I get?

I'm 5'8" and an athletic 150 lbs. I'm wondering if I should go with a small or a medium...?

Responded on

Im 508 at about 165 lbs with a 41 chest, 31 waist. I wear a small which is tight but I only wear it as a baselayer tech garment on approaches on multipitch or snowboarding. A small would be fine for you, unlike me you could probably get away with wearing it casually as well.

The Ultimate base for your favorite everything else

Warmest most versatile base layer EVER. I own two, just to alternate between washes, that's how good it is. Take any jacket you have and add another -10*C to it's capabilities by combining with the R1 Flash. When winds pick up, the hood protects. Thumb loops lock in the heat. Grid pattern polartec fleece traps heat like crazy. Jersey feel on the outside make for easy slide into jackets, and pill resistance. Like I said, if you are enthusiastic about your other gear, augment it with the R1 hoody. 5'9 155lbs, Small fits perfectly. Hood doubles as neck gaiter.One of my favorite weightless heater combo is the R1 flash + Arcteryx Kappa AR, really extends the temperature range of the AR without the need to go SV. Backcountry rocks as always.

No Pulling th R1 over my eyes on this one...

I've got a R1 pullover that has been my go to fleece for a while. I thought I'd try another version with the hood. This is not your typical hoody, it's definitely more of a balaclava. At first I didn't like it, but it's become my favorite for winter trail runs. I'll wear a base merino layer and the hoody and be plenty warm. On cold days, I can zip up the hoody for starters over a thin hat. As I warm up, it's easy to take the hood down adn the deep zip let me cool down even more. The thumb holes also keep the sleeves nice and snug.

I'm 5 ft 11'ish, and the medium fits me snug, snug in a good way.

Pros:
-Toasty warm
-Thumb loops
-Hood (balaclava)
-Typical Patagonia high quality
-Snug fit
-Chest pocket
-Hoody is not a typical hoody, more a performance hood that is meant to be used
-Long tail, keeps my bum warm..

Cons:
-If you're lookign for a casual hoody, this ain't it

My new favorite baselayer

The R1 has been my go-to layer for cold weather and skiing for years. I didn't think there was any way Patagonia could have improved on the classic R1 pullover, but with the hoodie they did. There are 3 main additions that make this piece more versatile than the R1 pullover:

1) The hood turns into a instant balaclava when the winds pick up as well as a comfortable way to keep your chin and neck warm when climbing. When fully zipped up this thing covers all the way up to your nose. Also, unlike most neck warmers and balaclavas the hood does not strangle your neck or make you uncomfortably warm in high activity. When it's down, you barely notice the hood is there.
2) Thumb loops keep your hands warm and reduce heat loss from the wrists when you don't have liner gloves at easy access. If you are constantly pulling your hands in and out of your gloves (cooking at camp, setting anchors, adjusting boots, etc) the thumb looks keep cold air and snow from getting up your sleeve.
3) The mesh chest pocket is much less awkward than the less-structured pocket on the classic R1 pullover which tended to flop around next to your body as well as get damp when you sweat.

Bottom line - if you like the R1 pullover you will love the hooded version. I brought it as my only midlayer/fleece to climb La Plata and Aconcagua and it ended up being my favorite, most versatile piece of clothing.

I'm in love...

Got this hoody on Friday at lunch time. Wore it to the office for the afternoon, skiing Saturday, relaxing Sat night, skiing sunday, to a Superbowl party Sunday night, and running in 20 degree weather Monday night. Now I will wash it, as it's just beginning to smell. I got this hoody after reading all the great reviews, and am not disappointed. It has the regular R-1 waffle weave material everywhere except the bottom portion of the waist (the lower 4-5 inches is a thinner material, to fit under a harness, under ski pants, or whatever). There is a chest pocket (good for keys!). The zipper feels fine against my base layer, and the face part of the zipper has an extra layer under it, and is offset, so it doesn't bother my face at all.

I am a female, and am often between a small & medium in men's sizing. I got the medium to be on the safe side. It is a bit on the baggier side, but not enough that I would send it back. A small would have been a slim fit. I'm sure it will shrink a little from washing, like other reviewers have said.

In summery... this hoody is awesome. I think you should buy one!

Responded on

I am a female who is 5'6 and 150 pounds and I am not sure if I should get the small or the medium, I do not want it to be a tight fit, however I dont want it to be ridiculously baggy either any recommendations since you are a girl as well and have purchased it in a mens size?

Responded on

I'm similar in size to you, and the medium is a little baggy on me. It's also a little long. If you are smaller chested, I'm probably go with the small. It may be a little on the tighter side, but shouldn't be too bad. If you get the medium, it will be a roomier fit, be a little longer, and the hood will be larger. Both sizes will probably work for you, it will just depend on whether you want a baggier or tighter fit... but either way, you'll love the hoody!

Favorite layer

This is by far the best layer for any high output winter activity. You won't find me skiing or on a SAR call without my R1 Hoody. I love how the hood covers a lot of your face when it is fully zipped up and it is still easy to fit a ski helmet over top. I also really like how it is overly long on the torso so it easily tucks under ski pants. My only beef is that the lining along the zipper in front is scratchy if you don't wear a light base layer. It is still easily a 5/5 though.

R1-D2! It's a space station!

I have a small R1 flash hoody. straight up ninja stealth style. you get the matching bottoms and you're ready to break it down artic style. This is my baby, my pride and joy. The apple of my eye. If I had one piece of gear to recommend to the world, it'd be the R1 hoody. My twin already commented on it and posted me in the below picture. I will say that it does shrink some, although patagonia swears up and down nothing they have shrinks, it's all a lie! but only minimal shrinkage. if you wear a small in american apparel then get a small, if not get the medium and so on.

Great thing about it is, for those with super long torsos, like myself, it fits great and is long enough to cover the entire belt. You can even wear a hat under it and it looks g-unit.

this is my twin, 6'2 and 170lbs and he's in a small (against my recommendations to get the medium which i have) and you can see how it'd be a great fit if he either pulled up his jeans or lowered his arms OR gotten a medium!

Look no further

I am wearing it right now. I'll be wearing it tomorrow, and the safe money says i'll be wearing it the day after that... and the day after that. Bottom line is that ironically, the R1 is top of the line. As a mid layer that is.

BEST FLEECE EVER!

this is by far my favorite fleece, i have every patagonia fleece known to man and most from arc'teryx, cloudveil, and mountain hardwear. R1 hoody makes all my buddies jealous and 2 of em went out and bought one after they tried mine on.EXTRA the R1 is cozy and it fits me very well, 6ft3in and 190lbs and the best part is that its long enough! finally a fleece that doesnt show my the world my sasquatch belly!(size medium)The thumb loops are an awesome feature that every jacket should have, the hood fits great with enough space for a big beanie or chewbacca hair (whichever). its great to not have a zipper in my throat when its freezing as well.im super satisfied and bought another for my twin brother, he loves it just as much! If you're looking for a dope hoody that functions perfectly AND looks good as all get out, look no further.

Does Patagonia have a women's version of...

Does Patagonia have a women's version of this (hooded) pullover? I can't seem to find one. Looks like at least one female has reviewed this... does the men's version fit a women okay?

Responded on

EMH, unfortunately there's not a womens version of the R1 Hoody. Other than buying a smaller size in the R1 Hoody, your best bet is to check out the Womens Capilene 4 Hoody, or the Womens Merino 3 Hoody.
