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.

Ms R1® Daily Zip-Neck

Kinda Large
October 24, 2023

Ms R1 Zip Neck

Although my husband is an average medium, like most of Patagonia products the medium was to small around the body, the large is a better fit however the sleeves are on the long side. The quality of the garment, fabric and colour are both great.

October 24, 2023


Very nice zip neck. Works as the new allround jersey for me.

October 19, 2023

feels nice

like the fleece overall but regret choosing the color blue. the dye of the fleece looks odd and off puttting. also anytime it gets a little wet it looks like you stained it. im sure the other colors are fine though

Love this zip-up!

Excellent fit as my daily zip-up for cooler fall temps! Should last long as the material looks like it'll hold up against the test of time.

October 14, 2023

The perfect winter knockabout

Love, love, love this one. Just bought a 3rd. The perfect midweight cold season knockabout. Can be worn solo or over a tee or golf shirt. All seams are finished and can look natty enough to wear out in most situations. Has the rare quality of being warm when it needs to be, and cool when it doesn't. Smooth finish doesn't pickup every stra... Read Morey piece of dirt like fleece does and sleeves easily glide under an overcoat. Comes out of permanent press wash looking brand new. Buy a bit on the large size to wear over shirts, I am 90kg with longer arms/torso and XL is perfect. A keeper.

Nice pullover. Not able to find in store. Fast shipping.

February 16, 2023

Great Fit

I didn't realize this R1 piece wasn't the grid pattern material but warm and comfortable none the less. Glad I went with the Large instead of medium because it's a slimmer fit than some other Patagonia fleece pullovers I have in medium and it fits perfect. 6'2", 190 lbs, 32" x 34" for sizing perspective.

February 11, 2023

Cosy and just right for the U.K. weather.

Bought from the Patagonia Bristol store where the staff are always friendly, helpful and knowledgable. I would say it's runs a tad large but not significantly so but pleased I tried it on prior to purchasing. Comfortable fit and great colour (Palo Green). One down side is there are no thumb loops which would have taken it to the next level... Read More for me and made it a 5 star review.

February 9, 2023

Fit & Functon

This is my second purchase of an R1 in the last 20 years. It fits well, great over bare skin, layers well, and performs as one would expect from Patagonia gear in the conditions, cool to cold weather snowboarding or hiking.

February 9, 2023

Great piece

My son is a novice rower and has been wearing it out on chilly rows. With a base layer its basically perfect for working out and also works great as a casual item with jeans.

January 30, 2023

sometimes its too warm

soft, comfy fleece, really good feel on the skin I tried it in -5 celsius as a baselayer with airshed jacket and this combo is too warm :)

January 24, 2023

Warm & soft

The R1 Daily Zip Neck is a great product. My only request for change is that it came in a Regular fit. The Slim fit is a bit tighter around my middle than I like.

January 14, 2023

Good but sizing is not consistent.

Very nice but the size is not consistent among the different lines. I have the R2 techface jacket and hoody in medium which is excellent and fits with allowance but when I received this was small. Recommend ordering a size up for this product.

January 8, 2023

Overall Quality Zip Neck

Warm. Comfortable fabric. Recycled materials. Ideal for hiking and daily wear. One star lost for the needless large R symbol stiched into the left wrist which is wasteful and adds nothing to the Item. Would encourage Patagonia to remove this symbol to reduce the impact of the item. Overall a great Item which I would recommend.

Your communication is clear and trustworthy. Sometimes sizes is an issue. I do not purchase for myself only. Question below therefore is not always applicable. I have answered as when I pruchase for myself. I recently purchased a cap and that cap was quite small. It only exists in one size. I am 1.90. It seems that your products vary in size. Somet...

Found it at Last!

I find it hard to find a good quarter zip these days to wear under a jacket. This one is spot on. Perfect for just running to the store or a couple hours outside plowing the driveway. I will probably buy another to have and would recommend it highly.

December 26, 2022

Great product, big fan of the company for over 40 years, love what you do for the environment. Would help if you offered free delivery on all your products.

I really like the fit and feel of the R1 Daily Zip Neck top. Appreciate that Patagonia rates their products. Nice color as well.

I wanted real fleece, like the fuzzy kind, not the furry kind, like you had in the beginning, so it was nice for what is, it just wasnt what I really wanted

So soft and warm. Feels perfect for casual and looks great

December 15, 2022

Super Comfortable

The most comfortable and warm 3/4 zip I've ever worn. Highly recommend!!!

December 15, 2022

Best looking pullover

Best pullover I own! Please make this style in black and don't change a thing.

December 14, 2022

Great fit with good insulation

This is the second one I've owned- the first is probs 10 years old and thinner in construction. This insulates more which is what I wanted and has a smooth exterior (different from the other R1s I looked at). Though I'm 5'6" the medium works great with my 40"+ chest ---it's that workout! I'd buy it again and again... Read More.

Product is warm, stretchy and good looking. The sleeve could use some reinforcing at the wrist .

Wear this for all activities

October 31, 2022

Fit and Function with No Dog Hair!

I am a big fan of Patagonia fleece 1/4 zips for the fit, function, versatility and comfort. I have more than a few of different styles. I specifically like the R1 daily because as an amateur wrestler with large willing dogs (ask me about all the holes in my nano puff), this one doesn't attract hair!

October 31, 2022


Use it as baselayer or for layering is amazing, very soft and warm. I Use it for long distances hiking and for work during chilling nights.

October 23, 2022

Form fitting and comfortable

Great for working from home; for those long sessions at the laptop responding to correspondence. I am right on the border between medium and large - opted for medium because it is soft inside and I like the snug fit. Warm alone, and a great base layer with a vest or for more warmth a pull over long sleeve Patagonia garment.

Super Nice / Really Soft

The R1® Daily Zip-Neck showed up and is really nice, great material and super soft. In other Patagonia fleeces I am a medium, but the R1® Daily Zip-Neck seemed to run a tad bit small compared to others I will be ordering a large as soon as I am done writing this review. I am 6'2" and 174-ish.

September 19, 2022

Great fit

Picked this up as an alternative to the classic R1. Fit is slightly looser that regular r1, but not in any way baggy. More of a causal look as well, doesnt look quite as techy as the original

September 18, 2022

R1 Daily Zip

I have four R1 Daily Zip tops and Im a woman. They are my go to shirt whenever theres a chill in the air! They are my favorite Patagonia top!

September 16, 2022

Satisfied customer!

Ive been buying Patagonia products for 60+ years and Ive never been disappointed. This too is no exception. The color great, fit is perfect and its very comfortable. My wife and I were very impressed with your founders decision to make such a major investment in fighting climate change and protecting the planet.

September 10, 2022

Nice Shirt

Purchased for my husband since he literally lives in these 1/4 zip shirts. Decent weight. Well made. Nice color. Have not washed it yet.

September 6, 2022

OK but...

I love these things but the sleeves are too short - sure they're almost there but why be so stingy. Add at least another inch to the garment.

Warm and Stylish

Looked too good for the outdoors so keeping it in good condition for travelling, socialising, dinner, drinks etc. Great daily. Fits perfectly: 5'10, 11st, slim/athletic build

April 20, 2022

Perfect for base layer or outerwear

Perfect base layer on really cold days. I wear as my outer layer on milder days.

March 28, 2022

Soft, beautiful fit and good warmth

I am a Small in regular fleece like Better Sweater or Synchilla. A medium here with the slim fit is perfect because I do not need a next to skin feel. The fleece interior is perfect weight and the flat outside is great. Perfect layer or for early spring.

March 21, 2022

R1 Daily

Very comfortable very similar to the standard R1 but dressed up. Could use a chest pocket.

March 13, 2022

Perfect mid layer

Got this for a mid layer or spring layer. It was perfect and fleece lined. I love my Patagonia fleece but isnt always nice enough to stand alone and the R1 daily bridges the gap perfectly!

Perfect Weight

I have a couple of old Patagonia lightweight fleeces that I thought I would never be able to rep;lace. This new one is perfect! I overheat quickly with activity. This shirt does the job. I can start a little cold and Im fine in the mid to low 40s. About as cold as it gets where I live in SoCal

January 2, 2022

warm and super light

Due to warm weather in Houston had only the chance to wear it one time . Perfect fit ,super light, and warm.

December 29, 2021

Perfect fit and thickness

I ordered a XS to mach my other brand sizes and it fits perfectly. It's not too think and its ultra light weight. I love this top!

December 19, 2021

Very comfortable

The fit is good, the fabric smooth and cosy, and it is just very comfortable to wear!

December 10, 2021

Very nice

Nice mid layer, very warm. Nice to wear to run around town or for winter activities.

December 6, 2021

Favorite Layer

I have purchased several of these R1 1/4 zips and they are my favorite winter layering garment. I am right between the L and LX size and have both. The L is more form fitting and less bulky when wearing as a second layer when skiing. The XL is comfortable as an outer layer over a t-shirt when going out for a casual dinner or around town.

December 4, 2021

Latest evolution is an instant classic!

Wow! The regular R1 was functionally terrific, but had that looks like an under layer aesthetic. This latest piece drops that more rough hewn aesthetic and replaces it with a sleek, smooth, polished exterior (good bye small squares of fleece turf) matched to a comfy, fleecy but trim interior. Its even an improvement on the old CrossTrek fleece (smo... Read Moreoth on outside, fleecy comfort on inside) because it has an improved zip collar which lays out well for a more finished look. To me, this is the latest and greatest evolution of a mid layer that will be an instant classic in my wardrobe. Glides easily under a better sweater, its my go to daily fixture. Totally awesome. Im 62, 180 pounds and the large fits perfectly, consistent with most all of my other Patagonia tops. Well done, bravo and thank you!

November 19, 2021

The nicest fleece!

This one is a winner, so soft so stretchy, I golf with it no movement restriction at all and super warm. the folks at Patagonia online help and my local store in Minnesota are the best. Thank You Shawn E
