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.

Sweater / Layering Piece
Great as a sweater or a light weight layering piece. Very warm for its weight, nice looking for casual wear. I had to get a size large so that it wouldn't be unattractively snug in the hips, which means I have to roll the sleeves up into cuffs, but that looks ok. I am 5'4", 115lbs and not at all large in the hips. Usually I wear a si... Read Moreze 6 or size small. I just got it so haven't seen how it looks after wearing or washing.
Cute, comfy, form fitting
This is a really cute and comfy layering piece. I typically sport it at home when the house is chilly. It does run a little smaller than many of Patagonia's other fleece offerings - partly because it is long and narrow, so if you have hips, you may want to consider sizing up. My usual S size fits, but I do wish it didn't hug my hips quite... Read More so much, as I end up needing to pull it back down after I stand up from a seated position -- it hikes up when you sit down, and then is form fitting enough that it doesn't just drape/drop down on its own when you stand back up. All super minor comments - I do love the colors and the soft fabric, and it is a flattering fit.
I washed the hoody once
I washed the hoody once and it the sleeves shrank. I will exchange it for another medium. I really like the deep plumb color. The length of the jacket and across the shoulders fit well.
Hey Denise, thank you for the review. We're sorry to hear that the hoody shrank after washing. You're welcome to connect with our [customer service team](https://help.patagonia.com/s/?_gl=1*1klnbfn*_ga*NjQ4MDAzMDY0LjE2ODI5NTAxOTA.*_ga_1SYPSJZYJ5*MTY5NTkyNDg2OS4zNjMuMS4xNjk1OTI1MDg5LjU4LjAuMA..) for a warranty evaluation, please do not use the exchange portal since that is reserved for product in new condition. We've included care instructions below in case you need them in the future. Machine wash warm, do not bleach, tumble dry low, cool iron.
Lots of Compliments
I work in an outdoor store and had been admiring the color. I purchased one and love it. The fit is true to size. Perfect weight for Midwest autumn weather. I have received many compliments and even had a customer mention that she had seen the R1 Air Full-Zip Hoody in the store, but seeing how great it looks and fits she decided to try one on.
Super nice for layering!
I used it primarily for skiing this winter and a few days of casual wear at work. It has nice form fitting feel to it, but, like someone else said, it is a tad tight in the arm pits and it does definitely hold a smell of sweat after you wear it. I am not sure if I didn't wash it correctly, but after washing and drying it, it feels a tad roughe... Read Morer and scratchy since initially purchasing it. As much as I LOVE the new obsidian plum purple color and want the sweater, the feeling of it after being washed definitely deters me from that.
We're sorry to hear that the material has become a disappointment. Our [product care guide](https://www.patagonia.com/product-care.html) will help you to keep your gear in the best condition possible for many years to come. Please have a look at that page and reach out to our Customer Service team if you have questions. Your purchase is covered by our Ironclad Guarantee, so we want to make sure you're happy with it. In addition, unlike the slim fit design of the R1 Air Full-Zip Hoody, our R1 CrossStrata Jacket has a slightly more generous, regular fit, so it may provide more room under the arms. Thanks so much for taking the time to send us a review, Brittney!
I’m 5’6”, 135 lbs, 34C. This fit like an XS, not a medium. To enable zipping, an additional 4” of fabric is required.

Fleece tops are a year round favorite in my closet. Needed to add a hooded jacket to my geara options.

Perfect all-around fleece
This is the perfect all-around fleece for spring and fall, or for layering in among other things in the winter. I love that it's breathable, lightweight, and less bulky than other fleeces so it's easy to tie around your waist or stuff into a knapsack. It's also very attractive and presentable for all kinds of occasions.
Nothing compares to R1 Air!!
I bought this for my wife(one of many R1 Air tops) and she loves it! We run, mountain bike and climb and she wears the r1 air for everything.

Super warm, feels amazing on my skin!
Would give 5 but the fit through the armpit was so tight it bunched weird. I had to return. I did order r1 daily pullover and I think that will fit better as a base layer than this one. I wanted it to fit under the cross strata for a little more warmth but unfortunately it just bunched weird.
Best fleece ever made
I have had this fleece for just over a year now. The dusty pink color is perfect. Its soft and fits great. It has just the right amount of pockets. Its warm but yet some how still breathable.

I would love it more without the hood
I love the R1 Air products although I find the hood a bit annoying. It is snug, not so easy to pull on when walking my dogs.

Hi Joelle, thank you for this feedback on the hood of this jacket. We're sorry this feature didn't work for you, but we're glad to see you were able to get one of the R1 Air Zip Necks without a hood. We hope you're much happier with that one! Please let us know if we can be of any further help.
Yes but no but now maybe yes?
I purchased this item when it first came out and wanted to love it so bad, but found that it was never as comfortable as I wanted it to be.

Recently in a... Read More patagonia store, I came across a newer version and it seemed to me the fabric was softer.

Purchased a few months ago, and it would be my favorite jacket but I am afraid to wear it as often as I would like because it is not wearing well. I bought this to wear to work in a casual office so it does not get any hard wear. Yet unlike my older version, this one began to pill immediately. I waited as long as possible to wash. Placed it inside ... Read Morethe Patagonia guppy bag as recommended and washed on delicate cycle in cold water, and hung it up to air dry. Washing caused it to look even more worn.

Hi Terr, we apologize for the untimely wear and tear with your R1 Air Full-Zip Hoody.

I am obsessed with R1 Air. The waffle look, the stand out pocket w zipper, the nice fit, the classic design.

This is so soft, cozy, light-weight, and perfect, and I will be buying another one soon because I expect it to become an everyday part of my wardrobe.

Thanks for the review, Rachel. We're very sorry to hear that you did not like the feel of this technical fleece. If you're interested in checking out our other options, click [here](https://www.patagonia.com/shop/womens-technical-fleece). We'll share your feedback with our product team.
Nice jacket but..
Nice jacket but makes lots of fuzzies with normal wear. Not like the R2 series which is more durable.
Hi Sandy, thank you for submitting this review. To do the most to prevent pilling, we recommend washing your hoody 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. To remove pilling that has already occurred we recommend using a product like a fabric shaver, which is gentler on fabric than a sweater stone. If the pilling or fuzzing becomes too much of an issue, please keep in mind you are welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it at any time under our warranty.
Soft. Well fitted. Comfy!
I like the tailored fit. Im kind of between an XS and Small. The sleeves are a smidge short. I think its because Im used to wearing fleece and long sleeve shirts that are a little longer in the arms. The XS was on sale, so I got it. When a small is on sale, Ill buy one of those, too. Luv Patagonia!
I wanted so much to like this!
I originally ordered a medium in this jacket to start with. That was based on the recommendation of the Patagonia measurements. The Medium was so small in fit I could not get the hood up and in place. It was also very tight. (As above, I am 5'10" and weigh 135). I thought the jacket was rather skimpy for the price, but I liked the look an... Read Mored so I reordered a Large. The large size had a zipper issue where it was difficult to zip it up. The zipper itself was very small and since the jacket was longer it was hard to locate to begin with. I just felt like after the reorder that this jacket was not meant for me. I also have ordered other things were the size this season for Patagonia items has seemed off and things are running smaller. Thank you for listening.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review Bonnie! We are also incredibly sorry to hear about the sizing and fit issues you encountered. We will make sure to pass this feedback along to our Product Design Team so they are aware of these issues. In the meantime, please feel free to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) your product at any time as your satisfaction is guaranteed.
Comfortable and Versatile
I received my R1 Air yesterday and I am VERY happy with it. I'm 5'4, around 155lbs, with a fairly straight build and traditionally wear a large in Patagonia. Based on some reviews I had read, I was concerned that it would be too slim for my build but I found it to fit perfectly. It is slim, but comfortably so. I have room for movement and... Read More layering underneath (tried with a baggy long sleeved cotton t-shirt and it fit just fine). I love the length of it. I tend to hike and backpack in leggings, but like a little more coverage when I am wearing them and was glad that the R1 air offered that compared to some of my other fleeces that hit at the top of the hip. The fleece feels very lightweight and breathable. Yesterday was about 63 and I am hot natured, but I tossed it on to run a few errands with a Capilene Daily and some leggings and stayed comfortable. I think the zigzag design will offer good breathability for hiking. Overall the design doesn't seem as technical as the standard R1, but aesthetically I prefer it as it reminds me a bit of my favorite Patagonia fleece, the reversible R3, though not as warm. It really is a beautiful fleece and I am excited to take it out on some hikes. I definitely see this fleece being at the top of my rotation.
Love the red color and soft feel!
I love the red color and soft feel of this, but as someone who normally finds Patagonia Small on the slightly large size, the Small in this fleece definitely seems a little too tight around the shoulders/underarm, and also in the sleeve length. I could do with at least another inch on the sleeves (and I don't have long arms - I've a neutr... Read Moreal ape index). I think the Medium would be far too big around my hips.
Cozy but slightly odd fit
Very warm and cozy with a comfortable fitting neck and shoulders. The torso of the fleece is oddly long though, even on me at 5ft9in. I find it sticks out below my jackets and flares too much at the waist when unzipped as a result. Also makes for a less flattering silhouette overall.
Just Bought Another One
I bought this jacket in December, thinking that I wanted a light but warm fleece that was good for winter hiking and also cute. I basically haven't taken it off since, so when the sale happened, I snapped up a second one. It's great on its own either if it's not super cold or if I'm doing a vigorous hike. If it's colder, I ... Read Morewear it with a down sweater over it, and then sometimes it gets a bit clammy from the wicking. But that's a quibble. I suspect I will be wearing one or the other of them well into spring. Also, I appreciate that even the slim cut jackets are still roomy enough for people with chests!
I love this fleece.
I bought a medium so that it is a bit baggy. I can layer under it. It is very soft; so soft that I often don't layer under it. My phone and dog bags fit in the functional pockets. This is my second one of these. The colors choices are great. My first one is three years old and going strong, great quality.
I would let you try it on, but I'm wearing it right now.
This is what I want to wear when I want to be cozy around the house or when I need an extra layer in between base and puffy. It fits well, looks good, feels good and is extremely functional in all the ways. I appreciate that the pockets zip and that the neck goes up high when zipped up.
Soft, Fitted Technical Fleece
I wanted a fleece for layering during ski season and loved that this has nice facial coverage for under my helmet.

Super warm, breathable and lightweight
I love my R1 air hoodies because I sweat a lot when active and they keep me warm but breathe great so I can unzip my outer layer to dump heat without getting chilled.

Not as warm as I would have wanted
I rarely spend big on myself so this was a splurge. I do love the fit and colors. The hoody is a plus but its much thinner than I thought and does not keep me warm. Ill need to keep it for fall/spring va winter as I had intended.
Hi Rosalina, thank you for submitting this review. We're sorry to hear you were disappointed in the warmth of this Hoody!

Soft, cozy, very warm, runs just slightly small
I have several generations of the R1. It is my absolute favorite piece that Patagonia makes. When this new version came out, I had to try it. I am 5 foot 9 inches, 165 lbs with a strong althletic-curve build. In Patagonia tops, I am a consistent medium. This garment is extremely warm, even warmer and less breathable than the original R1. The origin... Read Moreal R1 has more stretch and mobility as well as a chest pocket that fits a phone. The new R1 jackets pocket is a bit small for a small smartphone. The fit is more snug as well; I am glad I have a medium but the shoulders are slightly snug and under arm too. The rest of the garment has a technical fit, which is quite fitted. I am not going to climb in this one like my others, but I do love wearing it. It is the perfect warm layer for casual wear. The colors are so lovely and it is a cute jacket.
Warm and comfortable yet also high performer
This is one of the best fleece products I have ever owned. I also have an Arcteryx Kyanite, but this is my new favorite for its light weight and breathability. We don't use heat at our house, and I have worn this basically non-stop since it has arrived to work from home, as well as on runs and hikes. I will be taking it on my next long through... Read More hike, too. Fantastic product. The only comments for what could be improved in future iterations: 1. make the chest pocket a little bigger and 2. have a zipper guard on the chin area, but these are very minor suggestions and I think this will be a workhorse for years to come. Thanks for the great quality, Patagonia!
Looks Really Worn After Just a Few Weeks
Patagonia is my go-to brand for all my outdoor clothing. I lost a similar fleece earlier this summer and I thought I replaced it with the same item when I bought this fleece. It must have been a different one though because it feels thinner and fits tighter for a large (I like them loose for layering). I'm not a fan of this material because ...

Saying in advance I love it
I think I love this jacket except I ordered my usual size medium and needed to exchange it for a large which I have not yet received.

Great sweater for fall
Very warm but lightweight which is great. Packed it in my carry on for Canada and it did not take up much space & kept me warm for several hours in ~50 degree weather. Great color and pockets. Only slight negative is that the bottom of the jacket is too narrow across my hips so I have to bunch it up to my waste to zip it.
Versatile cozy layer
I have almost every variation of the R1 fleece that has been made over the last twenty years. This is the most versatile and retains the warmth and coziness I expect from the R1 line. Its the perfect layering piece, took it one a trip to Peru and wore it in the jungle, the valley, and the city. Love it!
I'm happy with this!
As a person that runs hot year round, I need to have breathable clothing for the autumn and winter months. I can tell that this jacket will keep me plenty warm as a layer in the winter but as a stand alone piece in the spring and autumn. It's soft and feels great on the skin. I am a 40DD/size 16 (think stocky build) and although it fits snug a... Read Moreround the chest, I don't feel restrained and the overall width of the chest and arms, feel really good! I have biceps and I don't feel like the Hulk in this. I would say this is trim to body and if you want extra room, you may need to find a different jacket (does just slightly true to size). But if you are wanting something that is on the body and close, this is good. I try to purpose all of my clothing for hiking, casual wear, and lounging, and I think this hoodie will be a fave. In the end, I'm happy with it.
Won't hold up
Would not recommend for climbing or any activity where the fabric will rub up against anything. Definitely a baggier fit than the old R1 hoodies. Didn't realize the fleece material was on the outside as well. After one day of wearing it looks like I have owned this article of clothing for years.

I'm 5ft3in, weigh 118 (on a good day) and considered to have an average length torso. Normally, my Patagonia size is small but I ordered a Medium because several reviews and description state this is slim fitting and I do want to add extra layers for winter.

My dismay (over and over with most Patagonia jackets and pants - and I've bought several in the past year) is with the length. This time it was ridiculous.

Design team: the height of the majority of the comments on women's clothing that I've noticed across the board suggest that we are not 5'9" models.

My new favorite go-to layer
I love everything about this soft, light breathable layer. It is comfortable in a wide range of temps, and the fit is flattering. The only thing it might not be ideal for is bushwhacking, given that it has a wool sweater texture. Meaning it might snag and pick up a few pine needles more than a layer with a smoother finish.

I got the first one, immediately bought another. I know that's not in the spirit of minimal environmental impact, and I wouldn't usually.

This is a great hoodie jacket and I'll probably buy a second one in another color so I can occasionally wash the first one, which I wear almost every day.

Its high collar and hood are perfect when the temps drop and the wind picks up, it is breathable when exerting oneself, and its fit is perfect. It fits over my base layers and under either a down jacket or a nordic ski jacket or another top layer. I slept in it one very chi... Read Morelly tent night recently to good affect.. I already bought another as a gift
I love it. It fits close to the body. The hood is great. Also it is long and does not ride up. Excellent under a shell for snowshoeing at about 0centigrade. And under my Patagonia down sweater hoody at -15 C. Also for casual wear. I love it. You could offer it in a broader range of colours.
Great fit, comfy except for the zipper
I'm so glad Patagonia is making XXS clothes for smaller women, unlike so many other companies. The fit is perfect for my petite frame. I find this much more comfortable than the original R1 - the waffle fleece feels more flexible and less constrictive. My only issue is the zipper. For reasons I can't understand, there is no chin protector... Read More, which makes it kind of uncomfortable when it's fully zipped. The zipper is also fairly bulky, which adds to the discomfort. Given the premium price for this otherwise great product, I'm disappointed they have left off this one important detail. I had the same issue with the regular R1, which is why I returned it. The R1 Air is a little more forgiving and so I find the zipper discomfort more tolerable, but I'm still not thrilled. Other than that, it's a great fleece.
Thank you for sharing this feedback; this is very helpful for our product design team, especially with a fairly new product. And you're right about the expanded sizing; we are working on expanding our size offerings in our most popular products.
Light as air but unbelievably warm
So happy I splurged on this. Im always cold, but this fleece keeps me warm as either an outer layer or a mid one. I tested it for the first time as an outer layer for cycling on a 35 degree day. Incredibly it breathes, allowing sweat to evaporate, while locking in warmth. Its now a regular companion for outdoor fun. I love that the hood fits under ... Read Morea helmet. The fabric has lots of flex and stretch, so its designed for movement. Its also soft and cozy, and I find myself wearing it to relax indoors, too. The only complaint is that teeny chest pocket. Also be ready to size up because this has a slim fit. Im usually a size medium in Patagonia jackets, 120 lbs, 36C, with an average build. With this fleece, the medium just fits with room only for a base layer. That works for me but others may want to take that into account and go up a size. Overall a superb fleece!
We really appreciate your thoughtful and detailed feedback. Thanks for submitting a review of fit, fabric, function and features, as well as including some information about your own measurements which helps other customers. Enjoy your new R1 Air Hoody, Diane!
I wear a size small usually. Im 5 and weight 130 and ordered the medium and it was too snug. Patagonia may want to broaden their scope of sizing to be more inclusive for the mature customers in their audience. Not everyone is fresh out of college
Hi Patricia, thank you so much for sharing your feedback on the fit of this Hoody! This is immensely helpful to our product developers when planning changes for the future. If you haven't returned it already and would like to, we'll be happy to help you [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it.
Great warm layer with breathability
I love this layer and have worn it skinning/ski touring for the past three weeks since I got it. The only thing I would change is that the breast pocket is small and I wish it held my phone like the R1 does! Its really only large enough for a chapstick or a small snack.
The perfect Nano Puff under layer
I bought this as a gift for my wife and she loves it. I discovered the Mens R1 Tech Face and I quickly began to pair it with my Nano Puff. I wanted my wife to enjoy the same set up. She likes to zip the R1 Air all the way up but to not pull the hood on, zipping up the R1 all the way is a great neck warmer/chin warmer. The Womens R1 Air is a great m...

Keeps me warm
I really enjoy the slim fit. Love the high zip around the neck. As well the small hood is an added comfort. Light weight although keeps me warm and thats not easy for me. I also feel very stylish in this jacket. I am in process of getting a second color because when you like something you just got to have more. Love love Patagonia!
lightweight and super warm
This fleece is incredibly warm and extremely lightweight. The fit coupled with its lightweight make it great for activity; I climb very comfortably in it during our southern winters (30s-40s and sunny usually). I visit NH in the winter and will make a great layer for those colder days. This one is soft and cozy.
I want to be able to add more of these to my collection because this layer is SO awesome, but because it's so awesome, there are no more mediums and only two colors. I wear this hoody walking around town, in the house, biking, hiking, nordic skiing - as a top layer or mid-layer, depending on the temps. C'mon, Patagonia! Make more of these... Read More so we can all have a collection! :)
So pumped about this
After a long time deciding if I should buy this I finally pulled the trigger and I am SO excited about it. I wore it mountain biking this morning in about 35-40 degree temps with a light long sleeve under it, and I was totally warm and comfortable (even going downhill with wind). I rarely write reviews but I truly am so excited about this fleece th... Read Moreat I needed to share. I didn't overheat on the uphill and was perfectly comfortable the whole time. Sizing is a little weird, per the other reviews. I am 5'6" and 130lbs and very average build. In most things I wear a small, but I ended up getting a medium in this and I feel like it was for sure the right call. I do wear other Patagonia jackets (ski jackets) in a medium for layering. I am genuinely right between a small and a medium in this fleece as I tried them both on, but the small was a little short in my arms and pretty fitted. The medium is just ever so slightly a bit large on me, but I feel the most comfortable in it, plus it stay on the length of my arms when they extend. So pumped to have finally pulled the trigger!!
I will never take this off
When I recieved this in the mail the other day and put it on, and immediately texted my work colleagues, warning them to expect to see me in the R1 for the rest of the year. I literally don't want to take it off. It is warm, versatile, comfortable and cute. I plan to order the 1/2 zip next in a different color. I love it!
The appearance of this jacket is very cute. I love the fleece pattern and I love that it's fitted. But I feel it truly is a size too small. I wear an XL so there's not much to go from there. I bought the men's version for my husband and he wouldn't wear it because it's too snug. It's also a lot thinner than I expected.... Read More I should have read more reviews because others have stated it. I love the Patagonia brand and this is not a bad fleece. It looks well made but it's absolutely not what I was looking for. So if you want a thin fleece that is very fitted, this fits the bill. If not, probably look for another product. I'd definitely size up though.
