Patagonia Men's R1 Hoody

Call in sick, and then take your Patagonia Men's R1 Hoody for a test run. It's back, after much clamoring from Patagonia's most active customers and ambassadors alike. Technical, warm, breathable and mobile, it has every key feature that avid climbers and backcountry skiers need- from the highly refined, stretchy and now earth-friendly R1 fabric (made with recycled polyester), to the snug-fitting balaclava-style hood and sleeve-holding, snow-blocking thumb loops. Raglan sleeves stay clear of pack straps for shoulder comfort, and the external placement of the stretch-mesh, welded-in chest pocket (with a welded-in zipper) allows next-to-skin comfort. With low-grid stretch polyester under the arms, at the wrist cuffs and around the long bottom hem for minimal bulk under a harness, the Patagonia R1 Hoody from is 100% recyclable through the Common Threads Recycling Program. The slim fit leaves room for a light baselayer.

Warm in the Winter (or Spring or Fall)
I bought this Patagonia layer thinking I would wear it as a base layer mostly during Alpine skiing. I found that it was perfect as my second layer on dry Nordic Touring. You can zip down the front and give yourself ventilation during moderate aerobic activity in moderately cold temperatures. The hood comes in handy when in need of a little extra warmth for your head. The hood fits under a helmet and comes up and covers your lower face. Overall good design, light weight and warm.

Great update to a great product!
I've owned 4 R1 Patagonia pullovers over the years and they have all been great. Whether around the house or on a long haul camping trip these tops keep you just right. Not too hot and not too cold. The hoody is a great step up! I love the way the hood zips up and to the side to avoid riding directly under your chin as well as the hood sizing being snug around your head and face. The extra length is perfect for keeping the pullover in place while wearing a climbing harness or pack as well as preventing it from riding up while seated. The thumbhole feature is nice for many reasons, one being that it helps keep the sleeves where they should be while layering. Overall I cannot recommend this hoody enough. It's by far my favorite R1 top and I have tried them all!

Great value
After hearing so many good review on this product, I finally decided to buy this jacket. Compared to other jacket , this product fits to my body very well and warm me up enough for hiking situations. I am very glad buying this. Great value for this price.

Great Fit; Well Constructed Item
This hoody has become my favorite in the short time I've had it. It's already being put through the test as a base layer under my Patagonia Guide Jacket on a couple of hikes around the Hudson Valley. It allows ease of movement, it wicks away moisture and it fits and feels great. I am considering getting a second one. Yes, it is pricey for a base/mid layer. However, Patagonia's ironclad guarantee and quality make it a worthwhile investment.

All time favorite go-to
The R1 Hoody has become my favorite top from Patagonia. It is so comfortable and versatile. It is very compressible, packs down nicely and provide excellent warmth in a variety of conditions. I really like how I can throw over a capilene 1, 2 or 3 and be perfectly comfortable down to 40 degrees. In lower temperatures it becomes to best mid layer, throw a R2, puff vest or Nano over it an you are good down to 25 degrees. Also like how long it is and the optional hand coverage.
