Surprisingly super warm
When I got this I didn't really think it was going to be warm, but I was very happy to see that I was wrong. The R1 is one of the warmest pieces of clothing I have, I love that I can just wear it as is or layer something over it. I have used it or everyday use, hiking, and working out and the holds up very well. If you are a muscular person, t... Read Morehe R1 will accentuate your muscle which is pretty rad.

Wish it came in a tall option and the length and sleeves were a little longer
My boyfriend wanted this for his birthday so I bought him the black one. He's a thin 6 foot one inches and the medium fit him best. It is just too bad there isn't a tall option because the sleeve length and overall shirt length are a bit short on him. He's determined to stretch it out and wanted a second one for Christmas so I got hi... Read Morem the blue, which is a nice color.
Not a tech fleece, but good in its own way
The issue I have with this product is it does not stretch much at all. Since I am between sizes I had to get a large to fit over my belly and because the material doesn't stretch. It is too baggy to make a good mid layer with my other layers so the material bunches. If you are looking for a mid layer look at the R1 and R2 Techface. I just got ... Read Morethe R2 Techface and it nails the technical fleece mid layer role. A medium also fits me perfectly. The R1 Air is super comfortable and wears like a sweater. For this I like it. The material is warm and breathable and also fashionable. With a pair of jeans it hits smart casual perfectly. Product request: Patagonia, if you're reading this, make an R1 Air tech full zip jacket without a hood, but use stretch panels on the flanks. You guys used to make a shaggy R1 like this. The stretch panels would allow for a more trim fit and unrestricted movement. It would breath really well and make a great mid layer. Don't put any pockets on it at all, so it can breath as well as possible. We need more super breathable and warm mid layers. I love Polartec Alpha, but it is not very durable. We need more options like this. and we don't pockets on top of pockets. Sometimes I end up with around 20 pockets when I am all layered up. If you end up making it you should send me one for free and if you're listening I have several product ideas. I used to work for Bomber Gear and I love design.
This crew fleece is great! I find it very comfortable and breathable. I really enjoy it. My only complaint is that I ordered two in large (green and oar tan), but, the one in oar tan is clearly not the same size as the green one. The green one fits about like i expected but the oar tan one must be a medium with a large tag on it. It's not even... Read More close to the same fit.

We're glad to hear your feedback on the fabric and comfort. We'll reach out to you to discuss options for a return or exchange on the ill-fitting fleece top under our [Ironclad Guarantee](https://help.patagonia.com/s/article/Ironclad-Guarantee). Thanks for taking the time to send us a review Devin!
Best Base Layer Available.
The R1 material is the best in comfort, fit, warmth, breathability, and application that Patagonia offers. Worn by itself, or in layer, the R1 is hands down best baselayer I've tried, anywhere. I have in mulch brown, palo green, and black. You must try it out, you'll be very impressed.
Bought this for my daughter during the sale, she has been teaching skiing all winter and needed another base layer, the women's were all sold out so we got a Mens Medium. It fits well, a little looser in mid section than a woman's would be but works with another layer under, or alone as well. Love the front pocket, and it is oh so soft!
New favorite versatile mid layer
510 185lbs large is perfect!! So far Ive worn cross country skiing both as a baselayer under a soft shell on cold days (10-20°F) and over a light baselayer on warm days (30-35°F). Running in temps up to 50°F seems great. Breathes well! Dries quickly. Its a great blend of technical material with a classic, casual look. Ive work it to work, at home a... Read Morend everywhere. New favorite mid for all seasons.
Puffier than what it looks like in picture
It is warm, and way puffier than what I thought I was buying. It looks lighter in color and fabric than what it actually is. Not a "heavy" long sleeve t-shirt, rather a full on fleece. Not a bad product at all, just not what I was looking for
Thank you for taking the time to share your review, Stefano. We're sorry to hear this R1 Air Fleece wasn't what you expected! Yes, it's a pretty beefy fleece.

Perfect Sweater for lounging, casual wear
Very warm, comfortable, and love that this is slim fit. Patagonia doesn't offer a lot of slim fit clothes but when they do, the item is excellent. Fleece is great material. Just got the sweater so let's hope it lasts (I used to own a Better Sweater and the fleece on that is awful).
Slim fit for my wide shoulders.
I really like it. Super warm and stylish. Bit tight for the wide shouldered people out there. Looking forward to the many years of use.
We appreciate your feedback, Nicholas! If the "slim" fit design of the R1 is constricting at all, we recommend checking out our slightly more roomy ["regular" fit fleece tops](https://www.patagonia.com/shop/mens-fleece?prefn1=fit&prefv1=regular). We'll be happy to exchange that for you!
warm and dry mid layer
I have many R-1 but this is my first crew, this is a great choice when I am going to have multiple layers with zip up neck. This workhorse is a great layering piece that keeps warm when idle and dry during aerobic efforts by wicking away moisture. Love that it is recycled!
Lightweight breathable base or first layer
I was a little skeptical about this pullover but turns out I love it. The pocket fabric is really nice and light weight (which was a concern having not seen one in real life) and the fabric is soft enough to be a base layer but the piece can also be used as ones on again off again layer. As with most active tops/jackets, I chose the mens due to lan... Read Moreky build and I recommend that to any other females who are on the fence about Ms or Ws. I consistently get a better fit in a mens (small, in my case), versus a womens (large, which is just too boxy for my build).
Im 60 and weigh 150 lbs. Ive always been a size small in Patagonia and prefer a trim fit. This was too short in the torso, too short in the arms, and too snug to fit a base layer under. I love the fabric and was really hoping this would work out as a mid layer for winter sports, but the fit just didnt work. Looking at measurements, the medium was n...

Game changer pants
This is my first pair of puffy pants and they're amazing. I've only had them for a few weeks but I've already worn them lounging at home, sitting around a winter campfire, under my drysuit paddling a frigid river, as an extra layer in my sleeping bag on a winter camping trip, and on a 2-hour gravel bike ride. The only thing they'... Read More;re not great for is work pants because they're not very fitted or professional looking.
Warm Base Layer
Been running this as a base layer during early season skiing here in Mammoth. Super warm, comfortable, and pretty much all I need under a shell down to 30°.

Read More here, but I like it.
Best air piece yet
58 141. Small in all Patagonia items. The R1air is heavier and warmer than the wool/capilene regular air. It breaths well for its weight but its not as breathable as the regular air. It does block more wind than the regular air. It is looser and has more of a sweater fit than baselayer fit, I prefer the looser fit as it does not ride up on you, It ... Read Moreis not so loose that it bunches up under my pack straps.I can tuck it in or leave it untucked. Its very comfortable next to skin. I dont feel any seams or extra material. I have not worn it 5 days in a row, so the stink factor has yet to be tested, The regular air can go weeks without smelling, My only concern is that it does not stretch a ton and this might be a long term issue with durability at the seams. But it's a Patagonia and Its IRON CLAD.
Tight Armpits, had to size up
5 ft 10, 175 lbs. Originally bought a size medium (I have an older r1 pullover in medium and it fits fine) and found it fit pretty well everywhere except it was tight in the armpits. Like "I can't wait to take this off" tight. I exchanged it for a Large and it fits much better. It's a little long in the arms and waist, but it&#... Read Morex27;s not too bad. A little surprising as this is one of the few articles of clothing I own in a Large now. I really like the R1 air fabric. Really cozy and warm - a lot warmer than I expected based on the weight and noticeably warmer than my regular R1 fleece with the grid pattern. I'll probably buy a zip neck or hoody in the near future.
The perfect base layer
I wear this as a base layer or just as a casual sweater with jeans all the time. Has just the right insulation, warm and cosy without being too warm. Also great for running. Keeps well, have washed it many times. I am sometime between sizes S & M. Got this in medium and its a very good fit.
by the gods!
Someone must have lost their liver to eagles to bring this to us. It's almost got an electric heat to it yet is super breathable.

It fits like a base ... Read Morelayer though so size up.
Medium is a good fit for 5'10" / 180 lb
Bodies come in all shapes and sizes, but this is pretty close to perfect for me. I'm 5'10" and 180 lbs. The Better Sweaters were always a bit baggy on me. So far, the R1 Air feels great and is perfect for getting around in 50 to 60 F weather. We'll see how long it takes for the cuff to become stretched out. My one complaint is t...

Perfect fit and holds warm on chilly Bikepacking sessions
The fit is is perfect for me with 183cm height and 69kg. I originally bought it to wear it in the evenings in the shoulder seasons when bikepacking. It works really great for this purpose, but if it gets below around 10°C I additionally wear my Nanopuff. As it also looks really great, I wear it casually to the office every now and then.
A perfect fit, perfect look, and perfect temp regulation.
I feel like I'm kinda in-between sizes with most Patagonia tops so I size up to a medium. While not a form fitting top it is indeed a slim fit which looks perfect on me. I got it in brown. The comfort and mobility are excellent as well. I find it breaths exceptionally well and is suitable for a wide range of temps. On a recent camping trip I b...

SLIM FITTING AMAZING SWEATER
I love R1 Air Fleece Fabric. But I also love my sweatshirts to be baggier, slouchy, and relaxed. I am 5'10" 165lbs and have a 39in chest.

Good technical piece
This is a great piece of gear that I am looking forward to wearing in cold weather for a JMT thru hike. Clearly warm and breathable at the same time. My complaint is the lack of a tall size offering.

I also dont think they have good options for mens hiking pants. They simply arent comfortable. However, I LOVE their R1 products and the R1 Air Crew i... Read Mores no exception. It is soft, comfy, fits well and looks good. It also breathes well. Despite what I was told the R1 Air is NOT as warm as the straight R1 versions, but it breathes better.

Highly recommend it if you are looking for a comfy medium weight top.
Got the fleece this winter and use it for ski tour and free-ride. Couple with the cap. heavy weight or air base layer & a good shell and you will never be too hot or cold but always just right.

Great fabric, but did not like the collar.

My New Fav
The R1 crew is very comfortable. I find myself wearing it all the time inside and outside.

To be frank, good base layers aren't that hard to find--Patagonia, obviously, makes great baselayers, but so do REI, SmartWool, etc. What sets this apart is its versatility.

Super warm and comfy!
One of my favorite things about this crewneck is how quickly it drys. I typically run with a tshirt under my r1s, but with this Id rather just wear without another shirt because of how warm and quickly it drys. Super impressed with this product, and would definitely recommend!
So glad I got it
The reviews on the R1 air crew peaked my interested so I ordered the Mulch Brown colorway. The color was exactly what I expected in person so that was nice.

Really pleased with this piece and happy I pulled the trigger. I sized up based on some of the reviews and am glad I did.

Also lets be honest, were all spending a lot of time at home these days and this is a perfect work from home sweater.
Super Soft and yet technical.
Purchased a L (6ft, 165lbs, 32in waist) fits perfect on me. A medium would of been pretty tight and restrictive I feel. In comparison to the original R1 style it feels bagger and more airy.
