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.
We do our best to process and ship orders within 1-2 business days (Monday-Friday, excluding holidays).

Good mid-layer garment
I have been looking for several years for a full-zip lightweight midlayer to wear between a thermal baselayer and my Nano Puff jacket, and this seems to fit the bill. I have not tried it in the field as yet, but it looks like it should do what I need. I tend to be at the boundary of small and medium sizes (5'6", 145 lb), so I mostly go wi... Read Moreth small. The length is good and the fit is OK, although it is just a tiny bit close across the chest right below the arms, which is something I have found in some other Patagonia garments. If it were just an inch wider, it would be perfect.
Quite a bit thinner than my last one which go stolen in an airport.
I believe this is a lot thinner than past r1 jacket..

A Very Nice Top
I enjoyed my first R! TechFace so much that I bought a second one. First one fit great (size M), the second one required a few more garments, but eventually I got one that fits well.

R1 has become a supermodel sized layer
I have 4 R1 jackets all size L. 2 of which are from 10+ years ago which are my favorite day to day layer. I recently bought 2 new ones and found the waist section super tight with no way to adjust. The older ones fit like a glove. The new ones are so uncomfortable at the waist that I don't even wear them. There are strings in the pockets but h...

A size L seems to be built for people with a 28 inch waist. Maybe time to stop focusing on the extreme athlete with perfect dimensions and make and edition for people who are in good shape without a waist of a 15 year old. As mentioned, I bought 2 in the past year based on the ones I had for years and the new ones are so uncomfortable I don't wear them. Why not an adjustable waist?

A Nice Piece!
The R1 TechFace is ideal for slightly cooler conditions outside or for inside when you've got the thermostat turned down. And it makes a nice layering piece as well. The light weight of the jacket and stretchy fabric makes it like you don't have an extra layer on. I'm at the upper end of size medium and the jacket fits well. I ordere... Read Mored a second color and the sizing was a bit tighter. Eventually I found one that fit like the first! Definitely recommend this jacket.
Loose torso, not very warm
I ended up returning the R1 Techface Zip because it just wasn't warm enough for what I wanted to do. Pros: - Reinforced cuffs and abrasion-resistant material. I've had issues with abrasion/pilling on midlayers before and this jacket's wear-resistant material was a big attraction for me. - A+ stretch and fit in shoulders Cons: - Not... Read More warm. You almost need a full additional sweater underneath to make this work as a jacket below room temperature if you are standing still. I think this comes down to the baggy torso and loose wrist cuffs and collar, letting the wind in and not letting the jacket trap air for your body to warm up. I have other garments made of similar material that are warmer. - No chest pocket(s) for when you have a harness or backpack/extra storage for travel. I'd have considered keeping the jacket if it had more storage space, as a lightweight layer for traveling.
Hi Alex, we truly appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts. The R1 TechFace Jacket is a great crosslayer for use in versatile mountain conditions, but it's not the best for colder conditions. If you're looking for a warmer crosslayer, we suggest checking out the [R2 TechFace Jacket](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-r2-techface-jacket/83625.html?dwvar_83625_color=BLK). It's a perfect choice for cold-weather, and provides breathability and warmth.
Perfect Spring Jacket
This has quickly become my favorite outer layer for cool spring and fall days. It blocks enough wind, breathes well, and has just the right amount of warmth. The outer face fabric also seems pretty abrasion resistant. Medium is the right fit for me with a t-shirt base layer.
Almost miraculous, but not cosy
Fleeces are my thing. It matters how they fit, what they look like, how they wear, how comfortable they are, and how usable in multiple situations. I tend wear a fleece all day round the house in the winter, wear them in the garden, to the shops, when I travel, and now when I hike as an outer layer as well as for insulation when I stop. etc. This i... Read Mores my very favourite jacket ever. (OK, along with the new Techface R2 for when you want everything this offers, but cosy). It is NOT cosy. It won't keep you warm sitting in a cold room. It won't keep you warm on a cold evening out. It fits slim (for it to work) and won't take much bulk underneath. But its not for that kind of use. If you want warm, get the R2 Techface, you will not regret it. For the soft feel, the ease of wearing, comfort and stretch, the brilliant fit, and the extraordinary versatility it really is hard to beat. I wear it everywhere - and it does cut wind, breath well, not overheat, look fantastic, and give constant pleasure to wear. I repeat, it is not warm in the sense of for wearing when you are chilled, nor to get cosy, not to sit around in under about 12 degrees centigrade. But for moving, being active, or even sitting on a plane, in a train, traveling where a heavier fleece would get too hot moving through airports or up stairs, and for what it is designed for - walking and mountain biking in cool temperatures, I can't praise it highly enough.
Thin but versatile
The R1 jacket is surprisingly thin but works really well. I use it as a layer in cold or rainy conditions and as a stand alone jacket in mild weather. The fit is very comfortable and a bit stretchy and unlike a regular fleece, the material resists the wind which makes it more versatile. I also have the excellent R2 TechFace jacket which is more sub... Read Morestantial. They are both great.
WAY TOO TIGHT/SLIM
I usually wear medium size (I am 5'10" / 170 lbs) and when medium is a bit tight, it's tight only slightly. This, however, is so slim/tight that I couldn't even close the zipper. So, I will be returning it.
Hi Sandeep! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear the jacket was too small. This jacket features a slim fit which should run closer to body, but occasionally customers find they need to size up. We greatly appreciate this feedback and we'll share this with our design team.

I liked it so much, I bought 2
This is an excellent lightweight shell. There's a thin, quilted layer of insulation on the inside, two zipped exterior side pockets, and an adjustable/internal/invisible waist draw string (which is clever). It provides a lot of protection in a lightweight package. I liked it so much I got two (one to trash when I paint and one for biking/runni... Read Moreng/hiking).
Very interesting blend of some wind protection, good vapor transmission rates, and weather resistance. Quite thin for a pile garment which also make it an ideal mid layer. Redefines what a pile jacket can do, nothing else like it. I have two of them; the regular jacket in XL, and the hoody version too in a smaller L size for Mtn biking.
My second R1 Techface
I had bought the hoody version two years ago which became my go-to daily layer. Decided to buy the jacket to wear when the hoody is too stinky/needs washed. Its light, so don't expect something super warm, but its works great in 50/60 degree weather or under a heavier jacket when its really cold. Sizing is slim, but not too crazy and there is ... Read Moreroom for a second layer underneat. I am 6ft tall and 215 lbs, athletic build and the large fits great, tailored vs baggy.
Another Great Fleece
I bought this because my beloved r2 tech face is too warm in the Fall. I had tried this in last year, but I did not like the fit. This years version is much better. I wear a medium in shirts, but I am always a small for Patagonia mid layers, and this jacket was no exception. Good rain and wind resistance, and I appreciate the rigid piece at the bac...

The stretch is great and the cuffs pull up and stay up easily. When I first bought it, the fleece was a bit rough next to skin, but it softened up pretty quickly. Good product, good company.
Love the jacket ... just needs a 'tweak' in sizing
Read some reviews on one of your on line suppliers that said they thought the latest version of the r1 tech was slightly less SLIM then the original (which for me was tight thru shoulder / underarm and restricted some movements. So I ordered one, hoping the latest would work for me this time ??? NOPE !! Same fit ! Good thru waist - chest - sleeve &...

I will hold out in hopes the Patagonia's design team switches to the raglan sleeve design in the men's new like in the women's jkt. Fingers crossed for next fall's / winter mt bike & XC ski season.
Where is the beef?
The thickness of the insulation on this doesn't compare with older versions. What is up with that? I had hoped to have a full zip version of the older pull over which is perfect mid layer thickness
We're sorry to hear this one is a disappointment. In the past we've offered R2, R3, R4 and many other varieties of fleece weights and functions. It sounds like you might prefer the slightly beefier [Men's R2 TechFace Jacket](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-r2-techface-jacket/83625.html). Please contact our Customer Service team to return or reach out to your local Patagonia-owned retail store. They'll be happy to help!
Let me start by saying I'm pretty critical of most things. I bought this mainly for casual wear and hiking in the strange spring-adjacent season in New England where it's supposed to be spring but its actually still cold. But not cold enough to wear a puffy. This fits the bill perfectly. It keeps you a nice temperature -- not hot. Comf... Read Moreortable. It regulates temperature well, so you can use it both casually and actively. I was going back and forth between this and the R2, and I am glad I picked this one. Being the techface, It blocks wind pretty well too, as well as light rain. So I feel comfortable and dry wearing this if there's an on and off drizzle with a chill throughout the day. If it were a full-blown rainstorm I'd probably wear this as a mid below my rain shell, though. It's a super versatile jacket that I'm getting a ton of use out of. My wife jokes that I'm the spokesperson for this jacket because I can't stop talking about how much I like it, which is pretty rare. If you're on the fence, just get it.
great concept ... BUT !!! NOT for REG built guys
Ran into the same issue w/ the r1 tech that I did before w/nano air. Men's model has a inset (reg) sleeve, women's has a RAGLAN style sleeve ??? Gal Pal loves hers, and I wanted to love it too,but I had to return. Fit everywhere EXCEPT in the armpit. Cut too high and just DID NOT WORK !! WHY designers decided to make men's w/ a inset... Read More sleeve vs Raglan (as men normally have bigger shoulders) has been beyond me for years. I have 4 R1 pullovers over the years & 2 have raglan & 2 have inset slv, & the raglan fits much better! Hoping Patagonia gets it together in future 'active' wear and makes some changes. AND maybe get rid of the 'SLIM' fit and go to a more "ACTIVE" fit for their products that ARE designed for actually using other then for casual wear. I'm 5-6 & 140 ish and most other brands small works fine. And Patagonia REG fit (S) pieces work great, MED = NO GO ! Too loose everywhere. Still holding out for a tweaked design.

Great jacket however, fit is off for me
Its a great jacket - well-designed, perfect for keeping handy when theres a chill in the air. I was excited when I first opened but unfortunately, the sizing isnt for me. As w/ other Patagonia jackets, I tend to fall in the middle of a M and a L (Im 510/170lbs.) Its frustrating as the two sizes are both on opposites sides of the spectrum for me i.e... Read More, M too small and L too big, to the point neither size will work as far as a comfortable fit.
Fantastic concept, but too baggy!
I love the fabric and the feel of the techface jacket. I also love the fact that it's breathable and still somewhat weatherproof. Unfortunately, I find myself rarely wearing it because with my slim/average build, it feels far too baggy around the middle and a bit long in the waist. Perhaps the idea with the larger sizing was to be able to laye... Read Morer underneath the techface, but I don't see the need for that because my main use case is high output activities in cold weather where I want as little under the techface as possible. I would love a slim fitting version of this because it would be such a versatile ski touring layer: for spring skiing, it would be great over a t-shirt or sun shirt for the down, and in colder weather it would be great with a light base layer for the uphill. The bagginess of this garment also makes putting anything in the pockets really annoying because I end up with stuff sagging and flopping around the middle of my belly. It's really frustrating because this jacket has so much potential, but falls so flat because of the fit.
Bought this to replace/renew previous model in same exact style. This arrived and was a lighter weight version. Love the fit and the style just a little to lightweight to provide any warmth spring and fall.
Your feedback helps us fine tune our gear so we appreciate the review, Raheem! If you like the fit and look of the R1 TechFace but prefer a little more warmth, I recommend taking a look at the [R2 Techface Jacket](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-r2-techface-jacket/83625.html?dwvar_83625_color=BLK)
The new R1 tech face full zip is a decent jacket, but has drawbacks. The jacket is larger than prior R1s, the arms and body are long. Also, the jacket is looser fit than prior models. Lastly, the cuffs are too loose. Love Patagonia clothes, but this item is disappointing.
Hi Pieter, thank you for sharing your thoughts on the R1 TechFace Jacket, We're sorry to hear that fit isn't right for you!

New Design is a step back
The R1 is among the most versatile layers that I own. I've had both the original R1 and the Techface R1 since their first embodiment and I use them interchangeably as both base and outer layers depending on the season. Overall, I prefer the Techface because it's more resistant to pilling and tearing when worn as an outer layer and carryin... Read Moreg a pack. Unfortunately, Patagonia decided to eliminate the internal chest pocket on the most recent embodiment. This version features slash pockets on the sides that are not accessible when wearing a pack or harness. What is the point of making a garment from a technical material and then eliminating the features that make it usable in technical applications? Sorry but this is a dealbreaker for me. I guess if you are into wearing technical gear while sipping craft beer, it would work great.
We're sorry to hear that the new product is a disappointment, but our designers absolutely appreciate your thoughtful and detailed feedback on the pockets, fabric, and versatility. If you haven't done so already, please reach out to our team to return it. We'll be happy to [help](https://help.patagonia.com/s/)!
Great layer or casual wear
This R1 is a great fit and very comfortable. Top layer helps keep you dry but also breathable. Like the full zip rather than quarter zip and it is more like a jacket than a shirt. Love the style.

Pilling within first month
Has anyone else had pilling issues with their jacket? Mine shows some pilling after the first month and I'm trying to figure out an easy way to clean it up. Otherwise fits great, helps regulate heat both outside and in.
Hi Buddy, thank you for taking the time to write a review. To prevent pilling, we recommend washing that item either by hand in cool to cold water, or separately in your washing machine on the gentle cycle. Lay it flat to dry rather than place it in the dryer where the fabric can easily get abraded. Removing pilling that has already occurred is very easy, a sweater shaver or sweater stone is an excellent tool and can help the garment look brand new. If you are not pleased with the performance of your gear, you are absolutely welcome to send it in for a [warranty returns evaluation](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) under our Ironclad Guarantee.

I am a longtime Patagonia fan. Nothing performs like Patagonia, and not many companies can match when it comes to their transparency & focus on environmental issues.

This jacket saved me
I had the previous version of this jacket for years and decided it was time to replace it. I can wear it as my only jacket until the temps get down to about 30* F or so. Took this on a kayaking trip last fall in November. The kayak got flipped upside down and I was completely submerged with this jacket on. Gathered my stuff and sat on the bank for ...

Read Moret do anything thicker. The only area that is a little snug is in the arms, but the jacket has good stretch and flexibility so it isnt uncomfortable. Jacket is made very well, and is super light. Great zipper and very comfortable. Fleece is a little stiff at first but breaks in nicely. The TechFace is great, soft but yet durable. My office dress code has become more relaxed and I wanted to find a jacket I could casually wear day-to-day all year around with just a tee shirt underneath. I live in Texas and needed something light, breathable, cozy, but not super warm, and rain resistant. Something that was casual, but yet still looked classy and this jacket serves my needs perfectly and checks all the boxes. Not having a chest pocket makes it look more sleek. Perfect office jacket, but could be used for way more. Jogging, fishing, hiking, you name it. Itll quickly become your go-to piece for just about anything.
Great packable fleece jacket for daily wear
I really love this R1 techface fleece jacket. Keeps me warm throughout the day and its also sufficient for a quick trip to the cafe in cold winters (-5°C). I reduced 1 star in my rating due to the sizing issues. I layer it with my Patagonia Lone Mountain 3-in-1 jacket (XS) during the winters, which wears really large for my body frame. However, whe...

If the sizing is comparable between the product ranges, it would be really easy for people buying them online during this pandemic period.
This is my 2nd R1 which replaces a 2012 non-techface R1. I got this for a trip out to California & ended up wearing it daily.

Stylish outer layer for cool days
I got this in Andes Blue - great color! I wore it over a button down shirt to dinner at a restaurant with my wife and she said I looked outdoorsy but stylish. It gave me just the little bit of warmth I needed. Not windproof or waterproof but great as a light outer layer or mid-layer.
Stretchy enough for golf
I looked far and wide for this jacket. I wanted something not too long, not too heavy, warm, yet breathable, had to be stretch and the kicker...waterproof. This fits all of them. I wanted one layer to save weight and movement. It's warm enough for WA state in late March, April, May, June. In the winter I'll wear it under a rain jacket.
Perfect Running Jacket
This should be marketed for trail runners! Absolutely perfect combo of protection and breathability. Doesn't feel steamy like running in a windbreaker, I got this too late to run through the winter but this + a t-shirt keeps me comfy on runs down to 30F and up into the 50s so far.

I have many R-1 pullovers and full zips. I live in SC so at work, in the winter , its the perfect piece to keep on all day.

Great Light Weight Warm Jacket
I purchased the R1 for the light weight design and the ability to keep me warm mountain biking and running errands in the snow. UPS delivered the jacket today. It was about 50 degrees when I tried it on, it fitted well and the cool air wasn't a factor. For the price you can't go wrong.
Perfect layer for skiing
I had another R1 for about seventeen years, when I was a ski patroller and then for recreational skiing. For me it was perfect, I layered, polipro top, R1 and a shell for most days of skiing. Had to replace when I lost the other, though it was still doing it's job for me. Great gear
Close but no cigar
Being a huge fan of the R1 I was pumped to get this with abrasion resistance and less piling. Those two factors were accomplished but it's not a thick as the original R1 in terms of fleece.

Love the fit
I have not had the opportunity to try this out yet, but have a back country camping trip planned in two weeks. You can bet this is the first thing I am packing. The fit is good, I probably could have gotten a large, but I am a little tubby in the belly. I figured I can go back to my old eating habits and have it still fit good, or continue to slim ...

Functional and stylish
I enjoy this jacket and find it to be both very functional and looks good. For its weight it is quite warm. Good for a fall or spring morning. My only criticism is that it would be nice to have a chest pocket like most of the other Patagonias have. For those of us that we are reading glasses its nice to have that pocket.
Flawless crosslayer for just about anything
I have three of these. My wife thinks Im nuts. But I wear them every day in Colorado shoulder season. I hike, boulder, ice climb, ski, snowshoe, bike, and run in them. I never took my black one off in September in Iceland. Theyre comfortable from about 40 to the mid-50s while on the move. They shed wind, but not so much a breeze doesnt cool you dow... Read Moren a bit. Theyll shed light precip, spindrift, beer snarfs. Stretchy, but not annoyingly so. Fits relatively slim, but with room for a Nano Air, fleece, or sweater underneath. All I wish is that there was a Napoleon chest pocket and a few more colors - carbon, roots red, new adobe, or mission olive would not go amiss in this lineup. And if anyone one the product team reads this, this same fabric tailored into a shirt-jac would be incredible.
Perfect for Spring running
I usually wear large, but since this is listed as slim fit, I went with an XL, Im glad I did. Its a little baggy on me, but I love it; Im able to wrap the sleeves around my hands and not bring gloves. I use this in Anchorage Alaska where the weather in mid-April is mid 30s to low 40s in the afternoon. This jacket has blocked the wind and rain, kept...

I will be purchasing this jacket again and again when mine wears out.
Light, Warm, wind and rain resistant
I have two R1s now one with the hood in one not. These are fantastic layering pieces. I use a Merino underlayer for warmth and wicking and this as an outer layer. The full zip allows me to cool down or warm up depending upon what I’m doing. I really like the fact that it’s wind resistant and good in light spring shower situations and layers well.
Love R1 TechFace
I have the R1 TechFace jacket and hoodie. I love: grooves in fleece keep air circulating, keeping me comfortable over huge temperature range. Good fit, looks good, great for layering or by itself. And, important for me, unlike conventional fleece TechFace doesn’t get dirty as easy and animal hair doesn’t stick to it. I can wear black and don’t need... Read More to use lint roller.
Not bad, but bring back the regular R1 zip up!
I own the hooded version of this jacket. It's more weather resistant on wet or windy days, but it doesn't seem to be as warm as the older regular R1 zip up. It's great for weather in the high 50s and 60s. I hope they bring back the R1 zip-up that had the hand pockets! They seem to have gotten rid of it for the 2019 fall season.
Purchased this item but ended up returning it. It was too thin for my liking. A lot thinner than I had thought and thinner than the competitions jackets. Also, this seems to be an ongoing issue for me with all Patagonia items but the sizes are slightly off to what I am used to from most other brands. A small is always a little too big for me and a ...

Nice jacket, but not as warm as traditional R1
My old full zip R1 is pretty tired so gave this a shot without seeing it in person. Don't get me wrong, the jacket is well made, fits pretty well, etc., but it's not as comfy or as warm as the traditional R1 jackets, hoodies and 1/4 zips. Probably better suited for higher output activities or mild temperatures. I like the face material, b... Read Moreut there just does't seem to be quite as much of the waffle material on the inside. I'm going to keep it, but ended up ordering the R2 Tech Face jacket hoping it better meets my needs.
In attempting to make the r1 abrasion proof, the fam]bric used was not comfortable. Please bring back the old r1

Perfect light multi-sport jacket
The weight of this jacket is quite light, making it the perfect companion for everything from everyday wear to the office, to hanging on the beach in the morning/evening, to hiking, to running/post-run, and as a light layer under a shell. The fit is as expected, which is definitely not a given with Patagonia, but this piece is dialed in. The He... Read Morem cord is well done and appreciated. The zippered pockets are perfect and highly functional. Overall the piece is pretty flawless from my perspective, having tried about 6-8 other styles in this category from Patagonia, it's the best. Only downside is the price seems high for the lightweight nature of the piece. Considering there is substantial innovation going into the fabrics and one is helping to finance Patagonia's eco programs with every purchase, I'd say it's worth the price. I'm the first month having this jacket in San Diego (July) Ive worn it everyday, usually mornings and evenings. I love it.
About time they got rid of the hood. I have the hoody, which is great, but with the hood being sized for a helmet, not a very useable hood... unless you walk around town in a helmet. This is such a great lightweight jacket. Great as a mid layer or just for everyday wear. Wish they brought the sprout green color back, but black will suffice. Arms ar... Read Moree long but that actually works pretty well for activities where you stretch your arms out, perfect for biking. 5’10, 200lbs, a large fits great. Pretty snug but stretchy from the shoulders all the way to the hands. Not so much that it looks like some muscle jacket though.
