    Minimalist design makes for maximum versatility.

    The Patagonia Men's 1/4-Zip R1 Field Fleece Pullover is the ideal midlayer for alpine endeavors in demanding conditions. The Polartec Power Dry construction has a high/low grid pattern and delivers excellent stretch, warmth, breathability, and fast-wicking action in any variety of temperatures. Offset seams and gusseted underarms allow you full range of motion and an extra dose of comfort when layered under outerwear or other packs. A soft welt zipper garage and chin flap eliminate the possibility of your chin getting chafed raw, while thumbholes ensure a secure fit and add extra protection against chilly drafts.

    Not great for rock climbing or layering

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'
    • Weight: 150lbs

    I bought this fleece instead of the standard r1 because I kept seeing reviews that said the r1 isn't that durable and pills excessively, and I wanted a fleece that would be good for rock climbing and could handle a beating.
    Overall, I'm not very impressed with this version and I wish I had gone with the standard r1.
    The r1 field's reinforcement panels add quite a bit of bulk and stiffness, making it less packable, and the horizontal pocket is very difficult to open with one hand (however the horizontal pocket can be friggin sweet because it perfectly fits a beer can! So awesome around the campfire!). One if my biggest problems with it is the sleeve cuffs; since I hoped to use this for rock climbing I needed to be able to pull up the sleeves to keep my hands free from obstruction. I see people do this with the r1 all the time, but with the r1 field the reinforcement panels make the sleeves stiffer and not stretchy enough to pull up and keep in place. The stiffness and looser fit also make this jacket less convenient to layer. It just doesn't feel right underneath my nano air or hard shell, and the sleeves bunch up.

    This jacket did not meet my needs, but with that being said I do think it is a good jacket. It would be good for manual labor outside in colder weather, or for other outdoor activities but in my opinion it does not make a good layering piece and it's not good for rock climbing.
    Since getting this jacket I've talked to many of my friends with r1s and the pilling and durability never seem to be a problem. If you're thinking about getting this jacket for layering or climbing, go with the r1 hoody or standard r1 despite what some reviewers say about durability. I think Patagonia tried to fix something that wasn't broken with the r1 field. The r1 is the gold standard for a fleece layer for good reason, and Patagonia will always repair and replace damaged gear, so I wouldn't recommend the r1 field.

    As the pullover has more rugged fabric around the shoulders and waist , it's better suited to walked through the woods where other sweaters might snag. The remaining area of the pullover allows for enough airflow that you could be fairly active in cooler weather and without getting overly warm. I've worn this while out walking the dogs on cool days, as a base layer while skiing in single digit (Fahrenheit) weather, and in the office to keep me warm at my desk. In all arenas the pullover has been great. A bit too pricey at $170 in my opinion, but having picked it up on sale I'm quite happy.

    I have a regular R1 pullover. It is a nice piece but the fleece is always piling and the high-wear points are starting to look pretty beat up.

    This fleece has all the right reinforcements in the right place. I fly fish in the backcountry and going through brush can be pretty rough on my regular R1. This piece still looks like new because of the reinforcements. It is still breathable for more active pursuits.
