It's good.
On it's own up to the 70s, or under a shell in the 20s. Versatile, durable, layers well. Get one.

Going grocery shopping in my activewear.

To keep yourself warm on a morning jaunt to Whole Foods for overpriced breakfast burritos and a Fair Trade Organic single-origin Sumatra cold brew with a splash of raw agave, the R1 can't be beat. Though you know it's part of your pajama uniform, you can complete your transaction feeling confident that the approach shoe-wearing cashier recognizes it as a technical midlayer. Phew. I suppose you could climb, camp, or do other barbaric things in it... if you're into that sort of stuff.

At 6'3" and 185lbs, the medium is a nice trim fit. One star off for slightly short arms. All in all, it's he goddamn comfiest piece of bobo loungewear you can buy with USD.

The Ultimate Layer

Light, warm, comfortable, perfect for a mid layer for any use. I use the R1 for brisk runs, climbing, a mid layer for skiing, and hiking. Have yet to find a purpose for this pullover. The long zipper makes it easy to put on and take off. The hood is designed to fit taught against your head keeping the warmth in underneath the helmet. In all, a great mid weight mid layer.

I cant say enough good things about my R1 hoodie. I have worn it a few times and I love the look, feel, and the well made quality this hoodie has to offer. Two thumbs WAY UP!!

Just Perfect!!

I absolutely love the R1 line from Patagonia. They are more practical than a mid-weight or thermal weight capilene top. A capilene tshirt and an R1, then add whatever else you want, and you'll be dressed for success. The one aspect that is super great is that the R1 hood is designed to fit UNDER a helmet. I do most of my resort skiing at Loveland in CO, on the continental divide; i.e. always cold, always windy. Using the R1 hood, under my helmet, makes even the coldest days nice and toasty. This really speaks to the thoughtfulness and attention to detail that go into Patagonia's products. These fit slim, I bought XXL for the longer tail, to tuck into pants/bibs. The fit is slim enough that over-sizing wont be overly large.

Perfect Layer!

    Got this for my brother and he loves it! Patigona R1 is a great mid-layer jacket! The zipper is nice because the collar zips up to your nose to keep you warm and it zips low for good ventilation. The hood can fit under any helmet. Great for skiing climbing and anything in between.

    worth every penny

    Bought this for a recent week-long trip to Finland. Rarely got above the single digit temps (Fahrenheit) for a week. I wore this every day, with either a short or long sleeve base under it and a down coat +/- a shell over that. It was roomy enough to comfortably layer under, yet still trim enough to easily layer over. I would pull my neck gaitor over my mouth and nose, then pull the hood and zip it up with another beanie over it and my neck / ears / head stayed plenty warm. Would buy it again in a heartbeat!

    Great Multi-Use Item

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

    What's great about the R1 is the multi-seasonal use. The R1 is light and warm which makes it super packable. It's great for colder summer nights, chilly Autumn/Spring days and a great underlayer for those Winter days. For me its a great underlayer for skiing because it is light, warm, and really breathable. I bought a XL and its a great slim fit. Perfect in the arms but I prefer the torso length to be a bit longer. As an underlayer the torso fit is good. This is a high quality item you can use year round. The only problem is now that I have one, I need 6 others for every day of the week.

    Saying what size you bought and how well it fits is useless unless you say how tall you are and how much you weigh.

    Hey Tyson, not exactly. Height can truly vary because of spine length. My spine length is about 18.5in which is generally short for my 5'11" height. if it helps I'm 200lbs/38in waist.

    Everyone needs one

    I bought this for a under layer for skiing and it is the absolute best. While searching for the best layer to use under a ski jacket shell the most popular choice for skiers was the R1. It makes perfect sense because this jacket is very warm and comfortable. It is very low profile so it doesn't make you look like the stay puft marshmallow man took up skiing and has come to seek revenge on the ghost busters winter getaway. So stay warm, stay classy, and buy yourself a R1.

    Very thin and stretchy

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    • Size Bought: XL

    I like my R1 Hoody but know what you are getting. The R1 refers to the amount of insulation. I use mine a lot for winter mountain biking, down to 10F, under a Gortex biking shell. I can pull the hood up under my helmet and the material is sufficiently thin to allow the helmet to still fit.

    I am 6'3" (1.9 meters) and 190 lbs and purchased the XL. The material is thin and stretchy by design and I think the size L would have worked fine for me. I think this layer would work nice in a sleeping bag since the hood would leave no gap at the neck.

    The thumb loops are a nice feature but feel somehow girly. I rarely use them.

    GREAT base layer

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

    I purchased this as a gift and he loves it! it's comfortable, lightweight, and warm. The r1 is great as a light outer layer on warmer days or as a midlayer under a shell or jacket skiing.

    Boyfriend is Obsessed

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I bought this for my boyfriend as a gift - he ski patrols and is always complaining how he didn't have enough base layers. He mentioned being interested in the R1 and I decided to surprise him with it. He's in love! His favorite part is the 1/2 zip because it is super convenient for dumping heat when skinning up during ski touring. He also likes that the hood is fitted and can be worn neatly under a helmet. The fit is true to size, form fitting without being restricting .

    The R1 is pricey, but well worth it. This base layer will last for several seasons and can be used for everything from skiing/touring, to camping or hiking.

    May I ask what size did you buy?

    My boyfriend ordered a Medium and it fits him well! Semi fitted with room for a base layer beneath it .

    Best in the business.

    This is hands down the best fleece layer I own. The fit is absolutely perfect. Long enough to stay undeath the climbing harness and tucked into snow pants when skiing. Warm, yet breathable and the hood. The hood fits your head perfectly and works as a balaclava when zipped all the way up.
    Do yourself a favor and pick one of these up for your next adventure.

    R1 Magic

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Best on the go, casual, activewear/performance wear, ANYTHING polartec fleece; I take one in my car for those impromptu dusk hikes, a quick warm layer for the game, take-along for the multi-day hike, everyday casual; pretty much the coolest versatile thin but warm layer you can get-----the R1 has been around for a long time and for good reason. Not meant to be trim body hugger fit; wouldn't be the R1 if it were; instead, Patagonia holds firm to this more Regular fit; has thin but effective, soft, scrunchable waffle fleece lining; breaths and insulates. In light rain or moisture on a hike, water is deflected; when it gets too wet and soggy, this is perfect to layer under a rain shell. I have the women's version, my guy friends love this men's cut.

    LOVE IT

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: xxl

    This is an amazing base layer for all kinds of activities, also great for daily wear. Its very warm and comfortable. Id say it runs a little small except for the length. The tight hood is great to keep your head warm while out skiing or standing in the cold. Would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a warm, thin base layer.

    Great piece!

    I wear a baselayer, the R1, and a hard shell on the days I’m snowshoeing, backpacking in cold weather, or snowboarding and I love the R1. The size is great. Im usually in between a medium and large and a large fits well. Form fitting with a lightweight base layer. Could wear alone if needed. It’s warm, breathable, and light. Love the little things like the thumb holes and the long torso length that allows me to tuck it into my snow pants with ease. The only thing I wish is that with the hood and it zipped all the way up, it would cover more of my face. I’ve looked at the Arcteryx Fotrez, but haven’t been able to wear or test it. I’d def buy the R1 again. I grab this piece every time I go backpacking and camping in any weather and wear this piece in every cold weather snow sport situation.

    Incredibly Versatile

    • Fit: True to size

    This thing just works in every scenario. Easily my favorite camping/backpacking layer because you can wear it all day long during any activity in any conditions. The ventilation lets you dump heat while being more active or retain it when you need to. I cannot think of a bad thing to say about this piece, a must have in my opinion. Let me know if you have any questions at all!

    Won't camp without.

    I got this jacket for my boyfriend to replace on of his older Melly's since he put so many holes in it. Now he won't take it off. It's really soft to the touch, the colors are fun and it doesn't accumulate stink either. Patagonia did a nice job making this hoodie breathable, but still heat-retaining. My bf also says that his favorite part is the waffly fabric, he say's it's more durable and also not as bulky as other fleece options.

    The Ultimate Layer

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

    If I were trapped on a desert island and could only pack one thing, it would be an R1 pullover. (Let's assume it's not a blistering desert island.) This thing goes everywhere with me and I've accumulated multiple colors so it doesn't look like I wear the same outfit literally every day.

    While it's mostly true to size, It's still pretty easy to float between sizes with this one, so consider your purpose and size up or down accordingly. I personally opt for this as a light outer layer more than a base layer and size up and get the most use out of it that way.

    Lightweight and Warm

    I picked up an R1 in the beginning of the snowboarding season and it's been a key layering item for me both in and out of resort. On really cold days in-bounds I usually pair it with an Airblaster Ninja Suit under my insulated jacket and I'm always nice and toasty. For touring days I just wear the R1 by itself under my jacket with a puffy in my pack as a backup. It's also super soft and comfy just to wear for every day use. The hood zips up to about nose level which is really nice for those cold and windy days.
