Why We Like The 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. We're huge fans of how its stretchy fleece has a grid interior that drastically improves moisture management by wicking and drying quickly as we sweat our way up mountains. Patagonia fitted it slim to enable easy layering, and it's completely stretchy to ensure freedom of movement.

Great for high activity winter activites

I've used it several times

The R1 Techface is limited in uses, as it is very thin and not designed to provide much warmth in low-output activities, but it is perfect for cross-country skiing and cold-weather runs. It has a great combination of wind resistance and breathability, and plenty of warmth once you areactive. This fleece does a good job at trapping in heat, so while (when I use it cross-country skiing) I might be a bit cold for the first 5-10 minutes, as I generate body heat, it keeps that heat in, and feels like a much warmer fleece than the thickness would indicate. I also had an older version of the R1 Techface, which had overly long and tight sleeves, the newer version of it does not have that issue. It runs true to size.

Technical Look, Functional Fail

I returned this product before using it

I'm a big fan of the R1 TechFace series because of the versatility it provides. It's not as warm as the original R1 when worn as a base layer but it offers wind and abrasion resistance that the original R1 lacks. Unfortunately, the 2020 TechFace jacket version has a loose fit and no internal pockets or chest pockets. The pockets it has aren't accessible with a waist strap pack or climbing harness, which, in my opinion was the primary reason to utilize the abrasion resistant fabric. I'm sure it works fine as a lightweight loose fitting casual jacket. Maybe that's where Patagonia was headed with the re-design. For me, it's a design-fail in terms of technical function. It's too loose and too bulky. I returned it.

Much Improved For 2020

I've put it through the wringer

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

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...
