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 Jacket

Kinda Large
November 19, 2023

Excellent sweater alternative

The fit, quality, and utility of this jacket are all top notch. It is just what I wanted for cooler evenings at home and an extra layer when out and about.

November 15, 2023

Feels good

Nice fit, lovely fabric

November 14, 2023

Light and warm

I own many Patagonia jackets, and have been a loyal fan since the 80s so I have seen many changes and advances through the years. The R1 jacket is a culmination of years of fabric evolution and feedback from real people to make one of the most advanced, lightweight, and very warm base layer jacket. This has become my new favorite go to jacket bec... Read Moreause it is so incredibly warm while being extremely lightweight. Fits well as a base layer or simply stands alone and will keep you comfortable when there is a chill in the air.

Ideal for daily use

Extreme next to skin comfort. Good length in body, slightly long in sleeves. Really is an daily item as works in combination with all other types of clothes and in most settings

November 8, 2023

Snug, warm

Pleasantly soft inner surface, smooth on ext. Snug fit (for what's called a jacket) but that makes it ideal for warm mid-layer use if you need additional coat or vest for added warmth or a shell on top for wind or rain. Wish it was available in white since most of my walking, three to six miles per walk, is at night and better visibility would... Read More be safer as I have to cross dozens of streets.

Surprised its called an R1

I should have read these reviews as to it running smaller with sleeves that definitely too long for even my long reach.

Im on the fence as to keeping it as I like the color and need a mid layer without a hood and it is better to be snug fo... Read Morer this layer. The old school R1 regulates temperature so well keeping me warm without overheating when it gets warmer or while doing activities. The Technical R1 full zip needs better color choices.

Marvellous smooth and warm jacket

No sign of fleece! Smooth attractive outer and warm and fleecy inside... excellent quality

Great work out soft jacket

Very comfortable

Great Jacket

I like a lot. I use at my office which is always cold. Nice and light, yet warm.

August 4, 2023

Not the R1 Fabric I'm Use To...

I love the Patagonia R1 and R2 line with because of the fit, stretch, lightness and warmth they provide. Every one that I have bought has the checkered fuzzy squares on the inside material. This one is not that!!! It looks and feels like a regular fleece sweatshirt zip up that you could buy for well under $50... Disappointed for sure

Response from Patagonia
August 7, 2023

Hi Frank, thank you for taking the time to submit this review. Yes, the R1 Daily Jacket has a smooth outer surface and a fleece interior, rather than the checkered interior of the regular R1 products. We're sorry it was disappointing! Thank you for returning it, since we want you to be happy with everything you get from us. If you prefer the fuzzy, checkered interior you might like the R1 TechFace Jacket or R2 TechFace Jacket. Please let us know if we can help you find an alternative!

June 6, 2023

My new favourite item

Already had this in slate grey, this green version is even better. Super light and comfy, heaps of that patagonia feel-good factor.

April 20, 2023

Warm and comfortable.

I have an R1 (size L) bought many years ago. I wear it in the winter to layer and it has held up well. Recently I bought a new R1 (size M) and am using it for the same purpose as the old R1. Both are warm and well made. Both fit, but the recent R1 (M) is a little small and I like the baggier fit better. I am 5ft8in and weigh 174lbs.

April 5, 2023

Comfy & practical everyday fleece

I use my R1 Daily as a mid or outer layer when out window cleaning for work. It's a lovely breathable fabric that moves well with my active job, keeps out the cold but doesn't overheat you either. I'm delighted with it.

March 8, 2023

Great casual jacket

I work in an office thats usually a bit cold, most people either end up with their outside heavier jacket on or toughing it out, but to be honest, it just looks silly. I ended up buying a cheap fleece from some no name brand, that while it kept me at the perfect temperature, ended up looking ratty and unprofessional. This jacket has been great for ...

March 2, 2023

Perfect for long term traveling

This sweater packs small while providing a good amount of warmth! It's very nicely fitted and makes me feel great so if you are on the thiccer side, you might want to reconsider. It isn't perfect though, the arms run a bit long. Would be a perfect sweater to have once they fix the arm's length issue.

February 26, 2023

Nice but runs small

This R1 jacket fits much differently from other similar R1 models. I own several in 'S' size and could not find a comfortable fit with the R1 Daily. The small was too tight; the medium too big. Bummed, because it felt otherwise wonderful!

February 25, 2023

As noted, I'm 6 ft

As noted, I'm 6 ft tall with long arms. I know that in recent years the sleeves on most garment seem to run a bit long. On this item, the sleeves were 2 inches too long. Just Saying! You did ask... Cheers, TM PS: I'll still wear it after I have the sleeves shortened.

February 22, 2023

Good casual jacket, decent fit

Comfy, casual jacket, that's pretty light weight. Great for office work or running around town. You'll want something else if you think you'll see any weather. I have oddly wide shoulders and a trim waist so finding a jacket that fits is always a challenge, but the stretch of the material makes this one work for me. It is more of an ... Read Moreathletic cut as well so there isn't a bunch of extra space around the mid section.

February 19, 2023

Comfy and lightweight

The zipper doesn't connect as smoothly as I'd like, and I wish the jacket was a little tighter at the bottom, it hangs a bit loosely. I'm being nitpicky, but my standards are very high for Patagonia since they make such exceptional stuff.

February 10, 2023

Nice feeling but use case too specific

The texture and feel of this were nice but the Large for me wasn't quite enough. I think this is simply designed for a very specific use case which was not for me.

Form Fit and Warm

I bought this in both a small and a medium. I use the small as a layering piece. Its pretty trim on me. The medium I use like a zip up sweater for work over a dress shirt.

Runs Small

Nice soft material like the jersey material. Problem is its pretty thin and don't think it'll really keep you warm if its 50F or below.

Cardigan alternative for husband

I got this in "salt grey" for my husband, who needed a replacement for his old zip cardigan sweaters. He loves it, wears it constantly, at work and on the weekends. It is thinner and lighter than a "real" jacket, but just right as a sweater alternative. Holds up great through a lot of wear! The fabric seems nice and somewhat d... Read Moreelicate (like a soft smooth scuba material) so he doesn't risk wearing it for heavy outdoor work or woodsy hikes. Fit is perfect for his tall-ish slim but athletic body type, especially the good torso length, size M, 6' tall. Only gripe is the zipper: it sometimes snags, maybe needs a quality upgrade?

January 4, 2023


Love it

December 31, 2022

too tight

I'm not a large person - 5'10', 170 lbs. The medium was too small and the large was a little too roomy. But both sizes had sleeves that were much too form fitting for a jacket. It was uncomfortable to wear a long sleeve shirt under the jacket. I returned both sizes.

Response from Patagonia
January 11, 2023

Hi Don, we're very sorry to hear that the sizing for the R1 Daily Jacket didn't work out. Please know that we value your feedback and we'll be sure to keep this in mind for future iterations.

December 24, 2022

Reminds me of my old capaline jacket

The jacket is great for taking the bite out of a cold morning. The Micro D provides more bulk than the Capaline lining - so the jacket is a little more bulky around the waist line. The pockets are all zippered and functional. I will enjoy this piece for years to come.

December 17, 2022

Poor quality zipper. Snagged on

Poor quality zipper. Snagged on top, unable to unzip as it got caught at first zip down. When zipping up, doesn't catch easily.

Product review

Can't really wear it when it's around 40-60 defF but it would be great for most of the California weathers (I just got it in December 2022). Its size was not perfectly fit to my size but it's good enough (92%). I really like the product.

December 12, 2022

Super comfortable

This is a great jacket. I'm 6'2", 200 lbs and bought a large. It very comfortable and looks great. It also includes 2 drop pockets inside for additional storage.

December 2, 2022

Great Daily Light Jacket

Pair this with the Down Sweater vest and it's a great combo when strolling around outside. Great material feels really nice and warm as soon as you put it on but could easily see myself wearing it into spring and summer as well as it regulates your temperature really well.

Light and really watertight

Great daily use jacket (bike commute for example) for temperatures down to 5 oC (wearing a t shirt, sweater beanie and scarf) - basically northwestern European autumn conditions.

Good buy!

Nice jacket. Used for everyday where, and layering when heading out. True to size for my height - I'm a shade over 6ft. But needed the XL for the sleeve length, which run long, but the L would have been too small in the body. Would recommend.

I like the fact that it is well fitted and not loose. I would welcome some other colors, I have the black and the dark grey. The weight of the fabric is excellent and the wind protection also great.

Everything great but the fit

Really wanted to like this jacket. The sleeve and jacket length are great, but the fit in the torso is just too narrow if you have an athletic build. Had to return unfortunately.

Just what I was looking for

I tossed my new Men's R1® Daily Jacket into my carry-on before I hopped a flight for LAX. I thought it was probably overkill since my App says it'll be 74 degrees in Marina del Rey.

I was comfortable; not only is it fairly form fitting, it was just the right amount of lightweight warmth. When we arrived, our hosts remarked how cool it can feel along the water.

I mean you're in the LuLu Lemon capital of SoCal and all of the fit young people who look like they just came from Central Casting probably did. So, yes, it fit well and provided just the proper amount of Pattagucci to hold its own strolling Albert Kinney. The tailoring seems solid and my medium, six foot frame seems to like the sizing.

Sleeves are too long

I looked at this product at your store in Dublin, Ireland, liked it and would have purchased but the sleeves are way too long compared to the body size.

I've been buying Patagonia fleece for over 30 years, from the technical to the casual. This ranks among my all-time favorites.

And FINALLY, a Patagonia slim fit garment that isn't restrictive and uncomfortable in the arm holes, upper back and shoulders - they've nailed it with this one! I love the smolder blue color with contrasting gray trim. I love this jacket so much I sold my Better Sweater and Synchilla fleece jackets into Worn Wear because I wasn't wearing them anymore. Enough said. Awesome fleece!

April 2, 2022

Nice, light, warm up jacket.

The R1 has been my go to for 50ish degree days when I need to keep the cold at bay. It is moisture wicking which is nice. The fit is a little slimmer than Id like but that just keeps me warm. Plenty of pockets and the collar is nice and close when fully zipped.

March 12, 2022


Im 64 and 185lbs. Most anything size large from Patagonia fits me perfectly and this did not disappoint. This is super nice jacket. Its definitely more of a spring, summer, or fall weight. I tend to wear it around the house over a T-Shirt as opposed to a jacket. The material is super soft and smooth. You wont be disappointed.

Winter running gear must have!

The Patagonia Men's R1 Daily Jacket is my go to running jacket when temps drop below 30. Room to move and not heavy so it wont weigh you down. Fits nice and clean, close cut and comfortable for miles.

I wear this every day

The fit and look are perfect for casual wear -- and since COVID I'm not dressing up much, so I wear this pretty much every day. Though as another commenter said, it's thin and so seams and contours can show through. But it's so perfect for "winter" in LA, worn over a Patagonia cool merino long sleeve.

A fan of the R1 series so bought this new R1 daily in Smoulder Blue. First impression is that the look is more everyday as opposed to outdoorsy.

So I'd say it is more compact and less warmer than the R1. Lastly, a bit of suggestion for improvement regarding the long front zipper. It is made of plastic and can run a little coarse at the beginning, especailly in my case the insertion pin is a little askew. The way how the bottom part of zipper tapes is sewed into the garment can be also done more securely. Overall, a versatile, good looking slim fit jacket that is very comfortable to wear.

Soft but not doe everyone

I love that this is soft, but I think this is better as a performance gear than everyday jacket. Due to the slim cut and material, you will see the outline of the shirt worn underneath. The Better Sweater jacket will probably be better for what I need.
