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 Full-Zip Hoody

Kinda Large
November 28, 2023

The Best

A perfectly warm not-so-bulky layer. My go to over any long underwear top and beneath a shell. Super warm and moisture great for heavy activity or just a cozy extra layer inside. Highly recommend.

November 25, 2023

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.

November 22, 2023

love these hoodies

I love these so much, this is my second one. Perfect weight for the shoulder seasons and layering in the cold season.

November 21, 2023

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.

November 20, 2023

Ws R1® Air Full-Zip Hoody is soft and warm

I really like the "Ws R1® Air Full-Zip Hoody", as it is soft, lightweight and warm, outside also protects from wind. The L fits nice and slightly loose. I still miss duble zip, especially for women's collection, since we mostly (still) have wider hips.

November 18, 2023

Great, soft fitted zip up

I was looking to replace a lost fleece zip up slender jacket and this is a great one! It is so soft, warm and can easily layer under other gear. Very happy with this purchase.

November 15, 2023

Perfect Layer

All around great weight layer for casual wear to outdoor recreation.

November 8, 2023

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](*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.

Loving this hoody. It's replaced my old favorite. A good weight for staying cozy.

October 31, 2023

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.

October 30, 2023


It’s like the perfect weight “Sweater” for fall

October 29, 2023

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.

Response from Patagonia
November 2, 2023

We're sorry to hear that the material has become a disappointment. Our [product care guide]( 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!

October 29, 2023

Toooooooo small!

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.

I love this jacket. It's perfect for spring/fall weather. I've gotten so many compliments on it, it's classy yet serves its purpose. Lined zipper pockets and a nice length.

October 25, 2023


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

This is a perfect layering piece for lots of situations. The fit is perfect and love the hood. All round excellent.

Soft and warm hoodie

I love this hoodie as it is warm enough and super soft against the skin. This is the second one I bought and am loving the obsidian plum color.

October 3, 2023

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.

Love this top

Lovely to wear, great fit and colour, perfect for what I want it for

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.

A lightweight stylish hoody. Size is generous. Long line makes it perfect for cooler temps when an extra layer is needed.

Just right for Fall

The air Full zip hoody is my favorite cozy piece for Fall. It looks nice, is comfortable and just right for hikes with my dog.

amazingly versatile. holds stink

This layer is my go-to for just about everything that needs a layer. Hiking, walking, day-to-day. I wore it touring and actually was too sweaty in this layer so best for mod-intensity activity. My only complaint is I have to wash it almost every time I wear it because the synthetic holds onto stink from any activity. Any sweat or heat gets trapped ...

September 14, 2023

Perfect layer

Love this. Lightweight enough to fit under a jacket and provides a cosy layer. Hood is a bonus too to keep my ears warm on autumnal mornings. Perfect for dog walks.

September 13, 2023

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.

September 9, 2023

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 have taken it hiking, ski touring, and wear it around all the time as it looks nice too. My only wish is that there was also a full zip version without a ho... Read Moreod and with all 3 pockets.

Amazing warmth for how thin it seems

I got this on recommendation from a friend and it is as warm as wearing my regular second layer coat! Amazing

August 20, 2023

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. It is a bit snug overall only from the perspective that if I need the hood, I would need a warm base layer for colder weather, otherwise the hood seems superfluous. Just things to consider. I am 5'3", 107 lbs, and t... Read Morehe XS fits fine, subject to my comments about the hood. I would give this jacket 5 stars if it did not have the hood, which was not an option when I purchased it.

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. Mainly, the fabric just seemed stiff and the fit, while acknowledgeably slim fitted, just seemed to bunch a lot. I ended up passing it off to a friend that could get more usage of it than I could.

Almost Perfect

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.

An icon

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

New Favorite

I bought this in black and lived in it for months. Soft, comfortable, warm. Washed well, dried fast. Perfect mid layer or as a light sweater with t-shirts. Because I wear it so often I recently purchased a second hoody in the green.

March 27, 2023

Excellent, light and super warm!

The only jacket you need for light winters. Love the fitting, color and fabric.

March 6, 2023

Really comfortable mid-layer

I wear this as a mid-layer for snowboarding, snowshoeing and an outer layer for dry winter runs. It's warn and comfortable. Slim fit, so order up a size if you want a loose fit over other layers.

Very comfortable and warm.

I live in this sweater now! Its lightweight but warmer and I love the texture feel of it. A great purchase that I know will last a long time.

An excellent upgrade

I have an old R1 quarter zip from almost ten years ago that has been very well loved and when I saw the beautiful Salvia Green colour this season I knew it was time for an upgrade.

warm lightweight fleece - new go to layer

This fleece is amazing. Im between a small and medium for most Patagonia items. Chest 34D tends to push me toward medium for a tighter fitting layer like this one. The light blue color is beautiful and a bit unusual. I love it. Highly recommend this jacket

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.

Awesome piece!!

Nice jacket but..

Nice jacket but makes lots of fuzzies with normal wear. Not like the R2 series which is more durable.

Response from Patagonia
February 27, 2023

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]( it at any time under our warranty.

February 20, 2023

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!

February 16, 2023

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.

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.

January 28, 2023

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.

January 25, 2023

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.

January 22, 2023

So glad I have this

What I love is the hood and how it fits under my ski helmet keeping me nice and toasty. Wore this under my parka and while downhill skiing. Fits me like second skin. Im 5-3 and 118 lbs.

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 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.

Not as warm as I would have wanted

This jacket looks so nice and is comfortable and warm. Hemlock green beautiful. I got the medium. Perfect fit. 140# 34G 5ft 6. Athletic build. Hope this helps. Hood also keeps the wind out!

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 ... Read Moreafter just a couple weeks of wearing this every few days, I feel like it looks really worn already. I don't think I would order it again because of that but I'll give it a go and see what happens as I need something like this to replace my R4s which are wearing out after a couple years.

November 11, 2022

Warm and cozy

I have been saving up to purchase this hoody for some time, totally worth the money. It is a great layer on a cold day. Size small, I weigh 115lbs with broad shoulders. Fits great with room to move freely

November 9, 2022


I really like these hoodies especially for fishing. The fit is great but my favorite is still the fuzzy old R3 hoodies for fit and softness. I wish they would bring those back. I wear these everyday working as a ski instructor.

November 9, 2022

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. I was able to get a good vibe from the medium though - it was soft and snuggly and surprisingly warm. It was just too tight. I read some of the other reviews saying it is too long but I didnt think so and hoping the ... Read Morelarger size is a good fit. I will say that if you are curvy sizing up is probably a good idea especially if you want to wear layers underneath it. Fingers crossed for the large and also hope you get the green one in soon!

Warm and comfortable

This was definitely worth the buy. I am very happy with it.

Love, love it!`

First purchased a size M, but returned it for a Large (which is what I normally wear). Now it's just perfection. I want to wear it everyday. Weight, color, fit exactly what I was looking for. Keep up the good work Patagonia!

October 25, 2022

I'm happy with this!

I was looking for a good warm layer for autumn as a stand alone piece and a layer for colder winter months in combo with my macro puff and this fits awesomely! It's a bit tight for athletic feel and wear but has some give! I am more broad and large in the chest (40 DDs yo!) but normal in the waist (16) and this fits great. i've washed it ... Read Moretwice and tumbled dried low for 10 mins and air dried the rest, no shrinking. I love that this piece is soft and toasty.

Hi Catherine, thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We have quite a few [hooded]( options for the Fall 2022 season, feel free to check them out at any time.

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.

October 10, 2022

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!

October 8, 2022

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.

October 8, 2022

Great sweater

This sweater is amazing! I love how warm, light and breathable it is. Its my go to for hiking, climbing or just out and about. I wear it either by itself or as an additional layer underneath a jacket for added warmth. I highly recommend it!

September 19, 2022

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. The fabric is easily snagged and its like a magn... Read Moreet for organic debris. Every piece of plant sticks to the fabric and is hard to brush off. Would not purchase again or recommend. The old R1's are better or the techface hoody material is much better for climbing at least, but they were all out of those, so I went with this one. Not a fan.

September 18, 2022

This is a perfect cool

This is a perfect cool but not extremely cold weather jacket, with a somewhat close but comfortable fit. I love the addition of the upper small pocket and the soft texture of the fabric.

September 10, 2022

cute but not very comfortable

Main body (torso) feels narrow. Underarm of R1 used to be too big, now it's a little too tight. Sleeves are long for me as usual. Though it's really cute, I have to return.

September 7, 2022

Too long

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. For the most part this is soft, fits well but it is slightly big, which I expected so ... Read Morethat I can have a more room. 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. This fleece sweater comes down below my butt! Surpassing even my Gortex jacket. I don't know if it's because I bought the medium but this does seem to be a Patagonia issue. 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. PLEASE offer lengths (inseams, sleeves and torso) more appropriate to the average woman.

Long and skinny

I have had prior R1s and they are great. I returned this because the fit was wrong for me. Sleeves really long, body fit in width but hit well below my hip. if I were to size down for sleeves and length would be too tight. Definitely built for taller thinner body types

Love the texture outside, wish it was the same inside. But it makes for a great, quick option for cool mornings

September 5, 2022

Feels and looks great!

I'm usually wearing size S, but the M doesn't feel too big, instead, it is comfortable and there is more space for layers. The only detail I need to get used to is the zipper slider that is on the other (right) side of the zip.

September 5, 2022

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.

September 4, 2022

Amazing mid layer

Amazing mid layer, so warm yet breathable, my total go to every day. I have owned this model in the past and worn a large. This years model was too big for me in a large so have ordered a medium

August 31, 2022

Extra warm

If you are loving for a warm mid layer, look no further, this is a sweet, warm, soft, mid layer or stand alone top. Use it on chill summer days or colder winter days.

July 31, 2022

R1 Air are the best

This is my second R1Air. Love the fit and the versatility. I wear it as a light jacket in the summer and layer with it to ski and hike in the winter.

Best hoody ever

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.

Super breathable

I love this jacket. I hike close to the water where the winds can be high. So as this jackets keeps me warm, it does not make me sweat, very breathable.

Great spring jacket

This is the perfect light weight jacket for spring. I bought one for myself and loved it so much I bought one for my daughter. The zipper pockets are roomy enough to fit your cell phone so no need for a purse when you have this jacket. The length is also nice

May 28, 2022

The perfet companion!

This fleece gets even better from the hard use, like melting onto the body as a thin cozy, warm and breathable layer of fur. I just love it.

May 25, 2022

My favorite zip hoodie!

I bought it a little big for me on purpose so I layer it for winter and skiing. This is my 3rd one and go to over the years. Still love it!

May 15, 2022


I love the color and comfort of my full zip R1 hoodie. It is the perfect weight for wearing alone or layering. The sleeve length is a bit long, as most Patagonia jackets are for me, but the tight band keeps it comfortable. I now have two.

Comforts and light

I teach yoga on the beach and this perfect to throw on when the sun sets. Im still able to move well and its the perfect layer of warmth when it starts to feel chilly.

It's like a snuggle!

I love this jacket--it's the perfect weight--great by itself when it's cool and as an under-layer. I wear it curled up on the couch when it's cold and hiking on cool damp mornings.

Very light, very warm!

I bought this with and without the hood in Small and Medium, but normally wear smalls. The medium has enough room to layer long sleeves very comfortably if you're planning to do that. This material is SO warm, especially for being so light and thin. It's definitely going to be a staple on my ski days.

April 16, 2022


This jacket is almost too small for me, but I like the snug fit because it feels quite cozy. Love the way the hood fits.

Great technical hoody!

I just got the R-1 Air Full Zip Hoody 3 days ago. I've worn it on a morning jog and a long hike.

Not sure

I like the jacket. Its thin and comfortable. I had to order up a size because its made small. It was new when I wore it for one week on vacation and there is pilling on the sleeves already. Not sure I would buy it again because the fabric is not wearing well. It washed fine.

Comfortable Breathable

This jacket fits true to size and is so comfortable, I wear it trail running, hiking, and just all the time. It keeps me warm, even with a bit of a breeze, but lets my under-layer breath while I'm being active. the hoodie was a big bonus for me for when the weather takes a turn, I can get even more warm with the close-fit zip and hood.

Magical Hoodie Jacket

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.

Great for cold weather running

Thin but toasty warm material that keeps out the wind pretty well too. It is perfect to wear hiking and running as it's not bulky at all

Ultra comfortable

I love this hoodie. It instantly became a go-to because of its warmth, but light weight. I've found it to be a great layer for under my ski jacket, but it also looks good on its own.

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.

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!

Found the Perfect Replacement

I've been looking for a replacement for a hooded Patagonia piece and this was the perfect choice. The fit is athletic - just the right length for me - and the feature that sold me was the hood that wraps around your head and neck snug and comfortably.

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.

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.

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 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!!

December 8, 2021

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.

Almost good

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.
