Protect the ocean so it can protect us

Our future is tied to the ocean. Its shared seas connect us through food, culture and sport. The home of amazing, abundant life, it’s also a powerful climate solution. Yet the practice of bottom trawling threatens to destroy this precious resource—bulldozing our ocean floor, undermining small-scale fisheries and deepening the climate crisis. Let's end this destructive practice, starting with an immediate ban in marine protected areas and inshore zones.

Ws R1® Air Zip-Neck

True To Size
November 20, 2023

Lightweight but warm

I love the R1 Air. It has a flattering fit, providing good coverage and stretches with you as you move. It is a lightweight fleece but is really warm, especially if you wear a base layer underneath.

too long

Its sleeves and torso length are too long.

Response from Patagonia
November 21, 2023

Thank you for returning this pullover, Junko. We're sorry the sleeves and torso weren't a better fit for you! It's designed to provide good warmth for the wearer's torso and arms, but it sounds like it was too much in this case.

November 19, 2023

Comfortable nice looking and soft

Fit true to size . Really nice cozy top

November 13, 2023

Cute and Cozy

Wear it hiking, wear it to get coffee, wear it out to lunch or as a layer fishing. This is a versatile garment, up to the task.

November 12, 2023

Extremely comfortable and warm

I bought one in blue and loved it so much I bought the teal color. I want to wear this pullover all the time. I bought Patagonia fleece pullovers in the past which pilled, but these do not pill. Excellent.

November 9, 2023

Versatile warmth

I have 2 of these in XL that are perfect for layering & keep me toasty warm with a shell. I also have a XXL that is perfect to wear casually & drapes attractively that I don’t overheat in.

Poor quality fabric

After a single wear and single wash following the washing instructions, the arms of this zip-neck are pilled as though I had owned it for years.

Hello Deirdre, thank you for your review of the Women's R1 Air Zip-Neck. Here are some [tips]( on using a sweater stone for fabric pilling and how to wash/dry to extend the life and look of your jacket. As always though, your satisfaction is guaranteed, so if it becomes unbearable you are welcome to return under our Ironclad Guarantee.

Snuggly and warm

The fit is great. It is slim, which I like because it keeps me warmer than a loose-fitting top. I bought the blue, which is a beautiful color. I love that there is a small zippered key pocket on the inside chest (that I didn't discover until the second time I wore it -- so it is not bulky or annoying if you don't put anything in it).

lighter & warmer than the original R1?

LOVE this fleece! Won't repeat all the great performance-related points others have made already (i.e. breathability, weight, warmth, longevity, etc). I'm a big fan of the R1/R2 line of fleece products, and amazingly I think Patagonia further improved on it... Is it possible that R1 Air is even lighter & warmer than the existing line ... Read Moreof R1?!?! One thing I'll note is that R1 Air fits one size smaller than the regular R1. I got this pullover in M size, and it fits the same as the S size in original R1 pullover I have, albeit a little longer which I don't mind~

September 26, 2023


Soft, breathable, beautiful color. Very fast drying - suitable for mountain travel, camping, etc when washing/drying access is limited. I love it!

Light and Warm

I love this product. I have several in different colors. It is lightweight, not bulky, and surprisingly warm. I wear a Capilene or Capilene Cool Marino under it. It is fairly snug on my 106 lb, 5'3" body, but there is room for a lightweight layer under it. Size up if you want more room.

August 24, 2023

Like being wrapped in a hug

These are fantastic pullovers. I have two of them. They are so soft and so warm yet you don’t overheat in them since they vent so well. I love them so much!

Warm without bulk

A versatile pull over I generally wear with a cool marino base layer for chilly days. I have three of them, so I love them. I am 5'3", 107 lbs, and the XS is snug but nice, without restriction.

August 17, 2023

Reliable as ever

Fab fleece, Patagonia never disappoints! Good fitting, very soft.

August 10, 2023

Uncomfortable seams!

The seams down the arms of my old R1 fleece are soft and flat. These seams are folded inward so they form a scratchy ridge all the way down the arm. I can't wear this over a sleeveless or short sleeve shirt, which is what I wanted it for. Please make a tech fleece that doesn't have these scratchy seams!!

Tight around my chest and very small internal pocket

I usually wear size S for Patagonia but probably because this fabric doesnt stretch much and its slim fit, I felt tight around my chest and under arms. Also the internal pocket is very small and cant put my phone inside.

I found that Mens size XS R1 Air fits me better than women size S R1 Air Large outside chest pocket with a zipper instead of internal small chest or arm pocket is always a winner for me. I ended up exchanging the item. Over all Patagonia always has an excellent customer service! Thank you!

August 4, 2023

Best fleece layer

Was just talking with a friend how we agree this is the most perfect, durable, warm cozy fleece. Love the pattern too - does its job so well and dries quick when I get it wet from paddling. I am normally a medium but sized down for more form fit.

May 18, 2023

Definitely A Keeper!

I tend to buy my Wife many Xmas presents, knowing she's picky and likely to send one or two back. Truth be told: I got this super garment in "White" and was surprised to discover it was more of a pale gray. I didn't think she'd like the color. Surprise! She loved how warm and cozy it is; and she loved the color; to the poin... Read Moret it is up there among her favorite closet items. She wore it almost every other day in her chilly office; and uses it a LOT outdoors as a base layer. The thermoregulation of R1 Air is remarkable across a very wide temperature range.

May 1, 2023

Great quarter zip layer

I love this quarter zip! I exchanged the crew neck version with snaps for this item and LOVE this one. It's a great weight- not heavy but it's definitely warm.

Warm and Cozy

I was curious about how this layer would compare to my tried and true R1 pullover. I took it on a snow backpacking trip this weekend and I have some thoughts. First, I do think it is warmer than my original R1. It wicks moisture well and is nice and breathable. I feel like it fits just a bit more snugly though. I have a S in the original R1 and bou... Read Moreght the same size in this and I kinda wish I had tried a M. Unfortunately I do have a dealbreaker with this layer and it is the pocket, or rather, the accessibility of the pocket. I love that the pocket is big enough for my phone (though only barely) but I hate that it's a hidden pocket because you have to unzip the whole neck in order to access the darn pocket which was cold and very annoying! The men's version has a sensible outside access pocket, that is what I want too. I would not buy another women's version of this because a useable chest pocket is something I rate very highly in my outdoor wear.

Response from Patagonia
March 28, 2023

Thanks for the feedback, Laura. This fleece does have a slim fit, so depending on your prior R1, we could see why it feels a bit more snug. While the zip-neck version of this fleece does have an internal chest pocket, the [Women's R1 Air Full-Zip Hoody]( has an external one so we recommend checking it out.

March 20, 2023

Soft and warm

Love this. Had to go up a size its pretty fitted, but its soft and warm without being too heavy.

March 5, 2023

Warm and flexible

Keeps me warm without the bulk. I machine wash and line dry. Comes out perfect. Looks great.

February 26, 2023

Super comfy, just right weight

I wanted a mid-weight outer layer for running or working out outdoors when temps are in low to mid 30s. Over a lighter weight wicking base layer, this does the trick beautifully.

Medium warm

I absolutely LOVE this fleece. Ittoasty warm yet has temperature regulation! Its my new favorite hiking fleece, and I love the new color. Well done, Patagonia

Magic Breathable Warmth

I bought this to help me ride my bike back and forth to work in Chicago in colder weather without becoming a sweaty, damp mess. So far I've worn it running around for frisbee and just on top of a light sweater hanging outside on cooler nights, and I'm obsessed. So comfy and warm despite it not being bulky.

This fleece pullover is very warm, light ,and soft. I like the material and color. It is very good quality , I can wear it as layer or wear it under a vest if I want to go for a walk , so comfortable ,and I am very happy with it.

I own 3 of the original R1s and this R1 air is warmer, more wind resistant and more comfortable, I could not believe it. The R1 air is also a lot better looking for casual wear. Definitely a keeper.

Warm and soft

I like everything about this top - soft, warm and not scratchy. I also love that it is made from 100% recycled fibers. It is fairly breathable when I wear it on brisk walks. Just wish this black/dark grey color were less blah but a vest on top helps brighten it up.

Response from Patagonia
February 15, 2023

Hello Christine! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear the fleece has started to pill. Due to the knit appearance of the face fabric of this particular item, this pilling can be more noticeable To prevent pilling, we recommend washing that item either by hand in cool to cold water, or separately in your washing machine on the gentle cycle. It's best to lay it flat to dry rather than place it in the dryer where the fabric can easily get abraded. To remove pilling that has already occurred, a sweater shaver or sweater stone is an excellent tool and can help the garment look brand new again. Of course, if you are not pleased with the performance of your zip neck, you are absolutely welcome to send it in for a warranty [return](

A fantastic piece

Let me first start out saying this is a fantastic piece. The warmth to weight ratio with ability to breath is bar none. Just phenomenal. Not to mention its softer than the normal R1's, which I love.

January 19, 2023

Soft and warm

Great warmth to weight ratio

This is my go-to mid-layer for skiing. I love how warm it is for how light-weight it is. It also breathes well, so I don't overheat. Washes up great and dries very quickly.

This is a soft, warm, fitted top. It is very comfortable and I wear it for casual wear, hiking and work. I have a thin neck and I live in a cool area so I bought an extra small so it wouldn't sag off of my neck. I love this top but if I had one wish it would be to have a taller and tighter neck.

Cozy and breathable

I don't usually like pull over fleeces because they get too hot and I don't want to keep taking the off and on again. This one is so breathable and has a little bit longer zipper that I am cozy warm but never overheat. I went up a size because I didn't want it to fit "fitted". It looks great, not frumpy, in the bigger size ... Read Moreand I can still layer jackets over it easily. I probably won't ever use the hidden inside chest pocket but it's not bulky or noticable so I can forget it's there.

Fleece is warm and stylish. Runs slightly small, so I dont recommend throwing it in the dryer. If you like a loose fit then you need to size up.

March 24, 2022

Love the color. Wish there was a Tall fit

I loved the color. I ordered a medium for longer sleeve length. Otherwise, I am a small. I would love it if Patagonia had a tall fit. We women come in all shapes and sizes.

March 11, 2022

Super comfy

I Love the color, I usually wear an XL but I find it to be somewhat snug sometimes so I ordered the XXL and it fit great, super comfortable!

Super great mid layer

Love love this mid layer!!! Its exactly what I was looking for - something lightweight, not bulky, fits snuggly, great for layering for outdoor activities. Its incredibly warm but light.

February 21, 2022

Looks great

Looks great And very comfortable. I bought one size up so I could wear turtleneck underneath. When weather gets warmer I will wear it on its own. Great product!

Excellent Quality

Color (dark blue gray) more beautiful than photo, soft, comfortable and top quality consistent with Patagonia

Great Fit and true to size

I love my pullover. I love the color and I love the way it fits. Not too fitted, but fitted enough so it looks attractive! I love all my clothing made by Patagonia!!!

A Great Purchase

I have the original R1 fleece. Two hooded and two zips. I really like the warmth those jerseys provide. Recently and reluctantly I decided to treat myself to the newer version the: R1 air. I am very happy with my purchase. It is like wrapping yourself in a blanket once you put this piece on. The newer R1 Airs are warmer than the original. I wear th... Read Moree newer R1 Air around the house and I wear the older R1 version out hiking and snowshoeing. Im sure that when I do decide to wear the newer R1 Air out in nature, I will be pleased with it. My only minor complaint is that the zipper tabs stick out and the pocket would be larger. Other than that the new R1 Air half-zip is a great purchase for one who wants to stay warm in the colder months..

February 7, 2022

Nice cut and feel, not too warm to wear indoors

I bought this fleece for everyday winter wear and it has worked out well. It's soft, slimmer fitting than some of the other fleece, and more flattering. I must admit that the fleece has worn down on my forearm from friction. Otherwise, perfect.

February 5, 2022


I work in an environment that is cool to cold during the winter. This fleece keeps me warm and at the same time presents a nice work apparel. I'm writing this for my daughter as the fleece was a gift.

January 26, 2022

Great Layer

This fleece is a nice layer for outdoor activites and casual wear. Looks cute for walking around town but also a functional piece. Highly recommend.

January 25, 2022

Warm and comfortable

Warm, comfortable, and great layering piece for winter. Im generally a small or medium in sizing. Small was too little. Medium fits perfect and allows me to put a shirt underneath.

January 17, 2022

Soft and light

Im planning to wear it tomorrow for skating. Color and design is better than I expected.

Wife loves it.

Wife loves this. Bought for gift. She has an R1 zip and likes this one as much if not better.

Best mid layer ever

Love this zip top! I was looking for something warm, but not bulky for layering with base and light jacket to wear hiking and snowshoeing. The fit is perfect - fits over the base, and jackets fit easily over that. Its a perfect fit, and incredibly warm for such a lightweight piece. Exactly what I was looking for!

A Great Pull-Over Jacket or Shirt

Im 5'10, I read where this ran a little small so I ordered a large. It fits about right. I little more on the snug side than a large fits me but a great pull over as a stand alone, or layers. Nice material, warmth and feel! I have ordered the jacket version of it!

Very comfortable mid layer!

Love this piece, I wear at work To keep warm in the winters and its a mid layer piece when I ski. Extremely warm and comfortable. Lots of compliments.

R1 Air

This zip neck is super warm , soft and comfortable! I git this in a large since it was a slim fit, I find it's just a little big but works. I have to cuff the sleeves. I purchased a second one I liked the first so much. I wear it all the time.

Kept me Warm in Snowy Conditions on the Ski Slope

I bought this base layer to wear under my ski jacket on cold days. This jacket performs! It is a lightweight fleece that can be worn under your ski jacket for an extra layer. I love the light weight of the fleece and it kept me super warm in 10- 20 degree temperatures on the ski slope out West. Another feature that I love is that it has a small zip...

A perfect piece for a winter st home day or out and about. My work is more casual now so will be able to wear this for zoom calls, etc. Really happy my wife and son got me this for this holiday season!

Great fleece

Great fleece, comfortable, warm and super breathable! Top notch.

Looks Like Picture

I got this for my mom for Christmas. We both really liked the color and the textured pattern. It does fit her well. Form fitting so it will show any pudge you have around the middle, so it maybe keep this in mind for an underlayer or wear highwasted pants.

December 16, 2021

Great layer!

I love this as a mid-layer for skiing. Its amazingly warm for its light weight, but its breathable so you dont get too hot. I wore it from 0 to 40 degrees this past week skiing, sometimes over a lightweight and sometimes a mid-weight base layer and it worked great! It is long, which I liked, and my Triolet shell pretty much covered it totally. I al...

Interesting, lightweight

An interesting new piece for Patagonia. As usual (and I have been a Patagonia wearer for 33 years, and own just about everything), the fit is long and narrow. I purchased a L, simply so it would fit across my bust. I am not a L person by any stretch, but Patagonia's fit assumes women have very small chests but long waists. On the positive side... Read More, it's an interesting lightweight top; good for layering. The left chest has a pocket with a zipper--a great idea for a guy, maybe, but I'm unaware of any women who want to slip anything, even a credit card or license, into a pocket directly over their breast. I'm keeping it but I suspect the version 2.0 will be better?

Hey Carolyn, we appreciate the feedback on fit with this piece and will share your thoughts with the team. If you decide it's ultimately not working for you, feel free to [send it back](

December 14, 2021

Super soft

Wasn't expecting how soft it would be! I have an older R1 from several years ago and this is definitely a cozy upgrade. A great mid-layer for colder days or on its own in the spring and fall. I am taller and I'm always very happy with the length of Patagonia's tops/sleeves. This is no exception.

December 14, 2021

Stylish and Warm

This quarter zip offers plenty of warmth over a lightweight shirt or on its own. I have it in grey and blue and love the texture.. It keeps me warm on my walks and looks stylish enough to stop for brunch.

December 6, 2021

Love this Fleece!

I was so excited to receive this fleece. It is warm, light weight, and versatile. I enjoy running and walking in it. I am glad I sized up, because I needed the additional space in the arms. This piece is easy to layer, which makes it a nice pullover to ski in as well!

Light, warm

Tailored fit.

Warm, great color, cozy

Fits snuggly over capilene base layer which is great. Love the patterned soft fabric and green color. Breathes well. Inside chest pocket is nice, but wish the access didnt require unzipping the neck.

November 24, 2021

Very warm and comfortable!

I love the bright blue color. Fit is snug so I had to order a size up from my usual Patagonia size. Glad I did though!

November 21, 2021


I do not like tight fitting clothing and this fleece is fabulous. A base layer fits nicely underneath and shoulders are roomy enough to fit my swimmer shoulders. Besides being soft and super comfortable, the fleece is warm. If I could have have one in every color, I would. I would love to see some brighter colors though.

November 16, 2021

Best of the best for women.

The top is very easy to put on in the morning. No decisions to make. I have two. The first one is a plain neck and the second is a zipper. I would love to purchase a few more; however they seem to be sold out!

October 26, 2021

Love it!

Love this warm and cozy pullover. It works great as a casual top in town or out on the trails and in camp. I consistently wear an XS in Patagonia clothing, and this fits well but I would say it is a tiny bit smaller than another R1 pullover that I own.

October 12, 2021

Love this fleece- Soft and warm

I love the feel and fit of this fleece- warm and not bulky- I just used it in the Dolomites hiking and riding horses. just wish they made it in a full zip WITHOUT a hood!

Warm and windproof

I really like the color, the look, the fit, and the fact that I can wear it as a thin layer that is very warm, and windproof! It was a bonus that it's windproof, I missed that in the description as I loved the look of the fleece most.

September 27, 2021

The perfect fit!

For me it is always hard to find good outdoor gear that is also flattering. This jumper is the perfect fit! It is warm and fitted. I’m a size 10 on top and got the medium. The sleeves are the perfect length and the jumper hugs my body just right. Would 100% recommend this garment.

Great fit and color!

Love this fleece - the blue is really pretty, it fits well, and looks great. I like my tops larger because I have broad shoulders, and this one fits perfectly.

Very cosy and soft!

Not too heavy but feels light and warm. I like the high neck.

July 5, 2021

Not too thick to layer with. Just a right.

Used going through the Ape Caves in Washington State. 41 degrees and it provided a good warmth with a thin wool first layer. Likes the extra long zip in the front to cool down. Look forward to using the piece again. Good purchase.

June 28, 2021

Color is better in person.

Fits more like a base layer with lots of arm mobility. Very clean lines that make this look like a nice top option too.

Warm, soft and lightweight

Love the color and softness of the sweatshirt, and especially it being super lightweight for backpacking. However, the fit is tight in the chest and hips (it did say slim fit).

Love it!

Only trouble is the weather is now warmer so will have to wait a while to wear it 😊

May 27, 2021

Super comfy

This R1 is super comfy. I'm happy that it's not tight in the armpit area so it's easy to put on and take off. Like other R1s, it is odor-resistant so multiple day wear is an option (helpful for traveling!).

May 18, 2021

Slim fit

Nice jumper but neater than I would have liked, I got a size up. Would go two up next time for a true baggy fit

Love, love, love it!!

I have an older R1, which I also love, but thought I would try the new R1 Air. I love it! It has nice long sleeves, a longer length than my R1, is softer, and seems to be just as warm and have a good amount of wind resistance. Very pleased.

Please bring back THIN capilene Zip-Ts!

I thought "Air" would mean thin and cool (like it does for your Houdini Air jacket), but I this zip T has the thickness of a mid-layer. I really miss Patagonia's old long-sleeve, THIN capilene zip-T. That's the most versatile base layer for outings in the 35 to 55 degree range: zipped-up in chilly temps (we women have long necks... Read More that get cold easily!), but like a t-shirt when zipped down and thin sleeves easily pushed up. I have an old, thin and soft Patagonia long-sleeve capilene zip T, but it's worn and too big. I wish you still made those!

Hi Terri, thanks so much for your review! This fleece is the warmest out of our base layers, so we wouldn't recommend it if you're looking for something thin and cooler. At this time the [Women's Capilene Thermal Weight Zip Neck]( is the least warm out of our base layers. Feel free to check back around August to see if more designs have been added to our selection!

I love this zip-neck fleece! I love the color and soft fabric. I sized-up because of the product description. I like being able to get a long-sleeve T underneath the fleece, and I can do that easily.
