R1 TechFace Fleece Jacket

The R1 Series hosts some of Patagonia's favorite fleece for climbers, hikers, and skiers all over the globe, and the R1 TechFace Fleece adds a DWR treatment to the face for greater resistance from snow, rain, and abrasion against rock. Its stretchy fleece has a grid interior that drastically improves moisture management by wicking and drying quickly as you sweat your way up mountains. Patagonia fitted it slim to enable easy layering, and it's completely stretchy to ensure freedom of movement.

Much Improved For 2020

The plain truth is the previous versions were too skinny, especially in the arms, to use a base layer underneath if you vere even slightly muscular. Patagonia has smartened up and made ALL their R1 mens models slightly more roomy and IMPROVED them thusly, IMO. I bought a 2020 R1 Techface half zip pullover and now one of these 2020 R1 Techface jackets. FWIW, I use a Columbia Terminal Tackle PFG long sleeve as my baselayer for both. Wash the Techface 2-3 times to soften up the tech face.

Patagonia R1- New design fails

I've used it several times
Runs large

Had the R1 a few years ago and loved it! Still have it- orange- high vis and great for outdoor activity as a base layer over under armor or smart wool. Wanted another one in a more subdued color for travel. The new one is a different jacket. It is larger and looser- I can live with this. The secondary internal pockets are gone! These internal pockets were the main reason I ordered another one. On the older version- These pockets piggy backed off the outer pockets. Those inner pockets are key for keeping batteries and contacts and power bars warm. Why the change- probably less labor and material but the price stayed the same...
