Patagonia R1 Field Fleece Pullover - 1/4-Zip - Men's

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.

All Around Good

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

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.

The material smell like gasoline

    The material smell like gasoline, I washed 3 times and can't get the smell of. Very disappointed at this product.
