    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.

    Comfortable and Warm

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    May look a bit more orange to some in the photo, but it definitely appears red in person. I'm 5'8" and roughly 165 lbs and the large was a snug, but comfortable fit. Great layering piece for a day on the hill or a day at the office. Has held up well after a handful of days inbounds and out, as well as a dozen or more washes. Can't go wrong with this Patagonia pick up.

    No Flaws To This Zip Up

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Im never disappointed with Patagonia. This R1 is a great jacket, and Its perfect for the breezy Autumn air. Its a comfortable fit. I have absolutely zero complaints about the product.

    R1 All Day

    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 160lbs

    Awesome mid-layer if bulky things under your shell bother you. Super thin (for a midlayer) and very ergonomic to your torso. Super cozy too.

    Smart Layering

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 6'3"
    • Weight: 235lbs

    The R1 holds true, warmth without weight. I'm a huge fan of layering, while mixing and matching I figured out the R1 out performed most of my thicker under layers (close second to the Better Sweater) quite incredible how warm and movable it is, I wear it as a ski layer, casual layer....hint: I wear it everyday..........worth the price to feel this nice!

    Warm and highly breathable

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: M
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    This is my go to piece for intense aerobic activity in colder weather. I usually wear it under a light soft shell jacket or rain jacket. Always warm and breathable even when running up a mountain face. Bought 6 years back and it has withstood the test of time.

    layer for every adventure

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    Bought originally as a warmer layer for my year guiding surf trips in the tropics, and when I returned to climbing it served as a great layer for windy or cooler pitches. It fits snug against the body allowing you to forget its there. Well built it has held up against cracks, off-widths, limestone, everything without ripping or tearing. It may just be that im a dirtbag, but it also doubles as my nice but casual city layer. Great piece, lots of memories.

    An Essential

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 190lbs

    I started replacing worn or lost essential gear this year and an R1 layer was an easy to replace piece I have missed. I went for the full zip instead of the pullover. I like the easy on/off of the full zip but I kinda miss the low front profile/ bulk of the pullover. I'm almost 6'1" and about 190. The fit is stretchy, and snug but not tight. It's longer overall than my old pullover and comes a few inches past my pants and the arms stay put even when climbing. This is nice when standing but the full zipper makes weird waves when sitting if you are worried about your photo pose while driving or overall bulk of layers.
    The layer is perfect for cool weather. I use it for everything from an under-shell layer for morning spring skiing to a quick layer in the shade climbing or cool-ish evenings. It sheds moisture super fast and washes easily. I wear it to work over business casual in a medical office. R1 is bomb proof. I found my last one on the side of a mountain after a spring melt and it had been there a while. I wore it for nearly everything including off widths for about 5 years until somehow I lost it. I expect this one will last just as long. It is similar to a merino wool sweater except tougher and only a little bulkier to pack. It also makes a great travel piece.

    Patagonia R1

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

    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.
