    The tech face of fleece.

    New from Patagonia's technical fleece lineup, the Men's R1 Techface Hooded Fleece Jacket fits smoothly into your performance arsenal whether you're wearing it for early season climbing or a late-season ski tour. The next-to-skin feel of its fleece construction mimics the warm, stretchy, and breathable Patagonia Regulator fleece, but provides additional abrasion and weather resistance on its face. A DWR finish sheds light precipitation, articulated patterning keeps you moving freely during your ascent, and the hood is compatible with climbing helmets so you don't have to sacrifice safety in favor of comfort. Low-bulk, snag-resistant cuffs keep a low profile on your wrists whether you're cleaning a route or removing your skins, and the hem and hood are drawstring adjustable if an unexpected winter breeze makes an out-of-season appearance.

    • Fleece jacket for performance layering at the crag or spring tour
    • Abrasion resistant on the outside, soft and warm on the inside
    • Articulated patterning provides active mobility
    • Adjustable hood with laminated visor keeps the weather off
    • Stretchy cuffs seal out the cold wind and snow flurries
    • Slim fit keeps excess bulk from causing a hitch
    • Item #PAT02AY

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I originally bought this jacket to just wear around town and to work and have a lightweight piece for Fall and Spring days when it gets a little chilly. But this jacket is so much more than that. Not only does this jacket look good, this jacket is waterproof and wind resistant. I've been caught out in the rain in it, and I also wore this jacket while riding a motorcycle, and I've been really impressed about how well it held up. I've started using this jacket in the mornings on my runs, since it does add some warmth and block the wind, and it doesn't look out of place if worn as a running jacket. The chest pocket is large enough for my phone or my wallet. I also prefer a longer waist on my jackets, and this one is a really good length and cut. The hood is also great. When fully zipped up and the hood on, my mouth and chin are protected from the cold, and the fleece continues into the hood itself keeping my head warm. My one and only complaint about this jacket is that it does attract pet hair more than some jackets. But lint rollers are cheap, and outside of that, this is easily now my favorite jacket that I own.

    I like it!

    I don't usually write reviews on the stuff I buy, but I wanted to point out that this jacket runs large. I ALWAYS wear a large when it comes to Patagonia jackets/shirts. I read elsewhere where the reviewer noted that the jacket ran large, so I bought a medium and large with the intent of returning one. I'm 6', ~180lb and the large was a bit baggy on me. the sleeves were also very long, extending almost down to my finger tips. the medium fit very well: nice and trim with my body, the sleeves extended just to the knuckle of my thumb. definitely more in line with how my other Patagonia gear fits.

    can't say much as far as performance (its getting warm here in NC), but it does have a much 'harder' shell than my R1. i'm really hoping it offers some decent wind protection.

    You Will Kick Ass in This Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'10"

    I heard that Patagonia was going to release this jacket, but as a college student I don't have a lot of disposable income to blow on outdoor gear. So naturally, I sent the link to my dad who is the biggest gearhound I know, and thought nothing more of it. I got a Snapchat from him at a store with the jacket on and a simple caption of "holy sh*t". So the next day, I went and bought one.
    I didn't take the thing off for like 10 days. I slept in it. I ate in it. I biked to campus in it. This thing can do it all. And inevitably, when those BC spring drizzles came through, I kept wearing it. Simply, this jacket does it all. It's breathable, warm, comfortable, and water repellent enough that you don't need to worry if a light rain comes to pass. This jacket ensures that whatever you're doing, you kick ass doing it. From the trails to the bike (or even horse) saddle, this thing will keep you cozy. And it looks damn good.
    I have to commend Patagonia on finally getting their hood right. For the past several years, the hoods on their non-shell jackets have gone through a number of different design iterations, all of them were supposed to serve some purpose but kind of flopped in the all-round. The climbing-oriented hoods didn't work for other activities, and/or it downright just looked dumb. The hood on the R1 Techface has a nice brim, is large but not overly so, and can cinch around the head and neck for when it gets windy. And you don't look like a dork when wearing it (cough cough nano-shell). This jacket has a pretty typical Patagonia trim fit, so you might want to size up if you're trying to layer underneath it.
    If you're expecting this jacket to be completely waterproof, it isn't. I wanted to test just how waterproof it was on a medium Vancouver downpour and was soaked through in about 20 minutes. My one gripe with it is the wrist cuffs. There's no wrist strap and the sleeves are a little long (or I just have T-Rex arms), so inevitably the sleeves tend to slide down over my hands. Having a way to secure it would be nice, but it's definitely not a deal breaker.

    TL;DR: this jacket is the ultimate spring companion that will keep you cozy from the skin-track to the concrete, all while making sure you look good. Be warned: you might get a visit from Bruce Lee because you'll be kicking too much ass while wearing it. Bruce Lee doesn't like competition.

    R1 that is water resistant, genius

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'0"

    If you own an R1 you know the benefits and why it is one of the best selling fleece jackets on the market. It doesn't compromise on warmth and feels just like the original R1, just with a water resistant face fabric. Highly recommended.

    I have been on the hunt for the ultimate lightweight hardface fleece EDC hoody, & have found Power-Grid supremely comfortable but lacking in weather protection by itself. I still like fleece for its durability, textures & styles (as well as softshells). As quickly as synthetic insulation has been evolving lately, i still find fleeces if not as effective insulators, more comfortable, breathable and "nicer" in appearance than puffy, baffled synthetics for just hanging out or cuddling with the cat. So far i have been considering things like the TNF Borod hoody & L2 Propirus, the OR Transition hoody, and the Patagonia R1 pullover hoody (which i still want), but either the fit & finish was lacking refinement (Borod) [Edit: i didn't even realize how spoiled Arc'teryx has made me] or the material was a bit too thin & close-fitting (like the Transition). The Burton ak Power-Grid hoody is my all-time favorite daily-wear fleece, but really lacks weather resistance, these being technical layering fabrics, traditionally. Enter the R1 Techface. I LOVE this jacket - it's exactly what i was jonesing for. It looks crisp and casual, but performs like Woah - i was out all day yesterday with this over a good Cap. 2-weight t-shirt, i was comfortable all day. It was breezy, and i'd put the hood on and zip up - the halo hood adjuster works perfectly for isolating the hood so it moves with your head when you look around - a make/break feature for me, since i find my peripheral vision useful. The weight is just perfect. The face is less hard than Arc'teryx Epsilon LT or whatnot, but harder than most hard-face fleece, and very stretchy. And the cut is actually not too techie - it looks more like a "regular" casual hoody. I found it interesting that i stayed completely comfortable, ever more than my girlfriend, who was wearing the Marmot ROM, and i even saw one guy carrying his Nano-air around. So i was as surprised that it kept me comfy in the upper 30s/lower 40s ºF, but i never had to do more than take the hood off to stay exactly the right temp in the sunny 60s that came later. I can tell this will be one of my favorite hoodies ever, and i'm a certifiable hoody-junky. This garment is as close as i have seen to perfection in this world of transitory impermanence. Pps, it looks classy. The grid shows through the slick (not shiny) outer surface, making it looks like a pinstripe/ windowpane design (at least in black)... Yep. Very very sweet.
