Warm and Breathable

Great layer!

March 4, 2021

Warm & Soft

This is my new go to shirt. After 10+ years with my last R1I finally had to part with it. That was a sad day. Was afraid the new version just wouldn't be the same, but pleasantly surprised. Same great fit, same warmth and softer feel. Hope to get as many years from this one.

Great product

Comfortable, warm and typical Patagonia quality.

March 2, 2021


I wear this on its own during heavy activity or under a warm jacket while stationary. This is an awesome piece of clothing and love the texture and feel!

March 2, 2021

Soft and Warm

It is perfect for layering under a light jacket for morning walks.

March 2, 2021

Crazy lightweight but really warm

The fit is snug but really comfortable because of the 360 stretch. Super lightweight fir the level of warmth, and not too warm when youre moving. Very happy.

March 2, 2021


1st time purchasing an R1 and I couldn't be happier I did! The weight to warmth ratio is the "amazing" part to me. It is super comfortable, extremely light weight and warm. I wore it with a tee shirt underneath to work and I was legitimately overheating at times. It unzips more like 1/2 way vs 1/4 which is great to let the heat out. ... Read MoreI'm 5'11", 185lbs and the large fits me perfectly. It is definitely more of a fitted garment than loose. Will absolutley be getting another one next time I score a discount code. Highly recommended!

Patagonia Men's R1® Air Zip-Neck Fleece

Absolutely love my Patagonia Men's R1® Air Zip-Neck Fleece. It's my go to over a t-shirt for chilly morning starts.

March 2, 2021

New R1 is superb

Went with a medium cause I have to size up on any slim fit Patagonia products. Love this new R1. Fits perfect and is a great base layer or just hanging out around camp as a main shirt. Looks awesome too with the new design pattern.

March 2, 2021

Super light weight, warm

The r1 zip neck fleece is very warn & soft. I bought it to wear with my new favorite Fits Roy Hoody. Both in the hot ember color. That combo is super warn, light weight & just like having a down sleeping bag on outside in windy, cold snowy weather. Like so much I bought one in black. Really like the way it fits at neck when zipped up.

I love it. Comfortable, versatile, soft, excellently made. Surprisingly warm yet also not overheating

March 2, 2021

Comfortable & warm

Fits fine, light weight, compactable & warm. Zip pocket fits I phone.

March 2, 2021

Very nice... my very old original R1 needed replacing!

R1, especially when new is sooo warm. My only complaint is that the pocket is too small for a phone. Also need to add pants to the mix.... hopefully like the original R1 pants, with pockets and looser fit than the recent iterations.

March 2, 2021

Warm, comfortable and stylish

For now this is for casual wear but will soon be relegated to sweatier pursuits. Cut is slightly slim which is perfect. Arm and hem is likewise the perfect length for my (almost) 5'10" marathon-running frame. "Curvy" weave is eye-catching. Super happy with the purchase and expect to wear it for a long time as with everything Pat... Read Moreagonia.

Pretty Awesome

Fleece has a great feel to it and fit is good. Good layer for a mild day.

Love it

I absolutely love how comfortable this clothing item/layering piece is. I wish the pocket was a little larger to better support a larger to phone but other than that, its awesome. Love the contrasting zipper color. I wish that was always an option with each piece Patagonia mix. This is yet another, homerun for Patagonia in the layering department. ...

I wish the front pocket was a little bit larger to better fit an iPhone 12 but every are R Patagonia makes is a must have!!

Light weight and warm

March 1, 2021

Warm, yet breathes well

Needed a mid-layer for skiing, snow shoeing and this fits the bill. I wear it over a capilene base layer and under a shell in almost all winter weather and am able to regulate my core temp with ease.

March 1, 2021

Excellent product.

Really well made quality top. I would expect nothing else from Patagonia. Very comfortable a great addition to my kit.

February 28, 2021

Works exactly right

for cross country skiing in high teens/ low 20's, a lightweight wool t shirt, the fleece and a windblocker shirt and its perfect. Moisture is wicked away and w/ the neck all the way unzipped I stay comfortably cool. Great design. ONLY nitpick, the neck zipper pull tab was to small to feel easily so I replaces it w/ a piece of paracord and a bi... Read Moregger knot. Great piece of kit.

Best midlayer I’ve ever had.

Warm when I need it to. Breaths when I run. The best midlayer I’ve ever had. The versatility of this piece is just unbelievable.

The R1 is back!

The R1 has been my favorite goto piece from Patagonia. I wear one most days, year around in the mountains of Colorado. That said, in the last few years I haven't been replacing my almost 10 year old R1s. I would try the 'new' ones on and they were cut very large and seemed not as thick and not as warm. The latest R1 air fits like a ... Read Morebase layer should and like the R1s of many years ago (in my opinion). It's very warm! I have an R3 from about 8 years ago and the R1 air feels almost as warm. It breathes very well. I'm 5'11" @ 160 pounds. Patagonia mediums typically fit me perfectly.

Warm and comfy

Love this: light but warm and the zip neck allows for variations in temperature. Have used running, riding and around the house.

February 20, 2021

Very warm and comfortable

I've worn this on a few runs now and a bit just around the house. It's very well made, super soft and comfortable and very warm. I wear a medium T Shirt but brought a size small in this and it fits perfectly.

February 11, 2021


Really cozy sweater, very big fan. Runs a little small like the other R1 and the neck is a tad tight too. Besides these things absolutely love it and another home run hit

February 11, 2021


Great technical mid-layer, used for Montana skiing at -7 F with a down jacket and non-insulated shell, and was cozy on the lift. The elbows wear very quickly however, developing a noticeable sheen within 2 weeks of wearing.

February 11, 2021

Light and Warm

Great snug fit - terrific piece that I think feels better against the skin than the classic R1.

February 11, 2021

Great jacket

Has the soft feel of a synchilla fleece but the warmth of an R1. Very lightweight compared to the warmth it provides. I am curious to see how it wears over multiple years of use.

Amazing polar

This polar is light, warm, and breathable, ideal for sports in cold weather.

The New and Improved

Though Ive never owned any of the earlier iterations of the R1, this fleece is definitely worth all of the hype. Its probably one of the comfiest pieces of clothing I own and can be worn as a thick base layer or mid layer. The medium pairs incredibly well with a size small capilene thermal base layer (Im 59 155lbs). That combo is built for serious ... Read Morecold if youre on the move. I wear it all the time underneath a medium nano puff hoody. I think its biggest selling point is that its a couple ounces lighter than the original, and yet somehow claims to be warmer and just as durable. The only complaints I have is the lack of thumb loops, the small chest pocket, and most importantly, the lack of a small piece of fleece to cover the zipper on your neck. The metal has a tendency to dig into your neck if you tuck your chin this could be easily avoided!

February 8, 2021

My new favorite fleece

I love this thing, and have been wearing it constantly for past several weeks. It's warm but lightweight and breathes incredibly well. I haven't worn it doing anything strenuous yet, and have some questions about how it would hold up in the backcountry relative to an R1 (which is less comfortable but has held up incredibly well).

February 6, 2021

Winter ready

Took it on an 11 mile hike in 5° weather with a 150 weight base layer and Capilene Tee underneath. It kept me plenty warm and wicked sweat with ease (had a shell that took on and off based in output and wind). I also wore this in the house everyday (and even slept in it) for the past 8-days to test it out. It barely stunk! However, I noticed that t... Read Morehe elbows developed some wear marks, flattening the pile of the fabric, giving it a noticeably different texture and look than the rest of the garment. It would be great if they made elbow patches using the same fabric as the chest pocket. I also noticed the fabric will hang on to all forms of lint (have the black so makes sense) and will pill slightly in the neck and in the forearms. Cosmetics and appearances aside, this piece is durable and feels built to last. The fit is also good. Medium fit comfortably for me at 57 160 lbs, size 38 in a suit jacket and small in dress shirt. I could layer underneath fairly easily without looking stuffed. However, if didnt layer it didnt look like a baggy mess. Its a great piece on the whole for those intending to be active, looking for functionality, and dont care about appearances.

February 4, 2021

Comfy and excellent fit

This is so comfy and warm that I have been using it almost everyday since receiving it. I really like the fit that is more or less athletic.

Quality R1 Patagonia

The sweater was well made, top rated Patagonia Quality. But the Cut is too small. Need to be designed with a little regular Fit

Response from Patagonia
March 3, 2021

Thanks for the review! The Men's R1 Air Zip-Neck Fleece is considered a slim fit, which might be why it feels the way it does for you. If you're interested in a regular fit fleece instead, check out the [Men's Long-Sleeved R1 Fitz Roy 1/4-Zip](

Light and Warm

I love it. 2 weeks skiing in the Colorado High County and it was always in my in my kit. Great for town as well. Very light, super warm. Chest pocket could be a little larger to store a phone, but that's a moving target....

Warm comfort

Super soft, warm as toast. Snug fit that nevertheless moves along with every move you make.

An Instant Classic

I don't often write product reviews, but I am really happy with the R1. It's slim fitting and runs a little small, but that's personally how I like my clothes to fit.

warm, breathable and comfy - sadly the sizing doesn't fit me

The R1 Air is super comfy, breathable and warm and I would love to use it, but a medium, which I usually wear is to short in the arms and length wise.

Crazy combo of warmth, breathability, and comfort

Don't know what to say about this piece other than that my wife is stealing it all the time. When she's not, I'm hoping it'll be chilly enough for me to wear. Size-wise, L is a slightly loose fit for me (5'10, 175lbs). I think I'm a tweener for Medium or Large and both would probably work.

January 20, 2021

Does the job

I've been looking for a warm layer I can wear on mountain bike rides. Needs to be toasty, pull sweat off my body, and breathe well enough to dry quickly. This piece is simple, effective, and priced right. Stoked!

An exceptionally light, exceptionally warm top

I am a huge fan mod the original r1. I still love it but I have a new favorite now. The air is so much lighter than the original! It feels like you arent wearing anything when you out it on. Yet its super warm. Its also very thin making mobility perfect in the r1 Air. I am so impressed, and cant wait for more colors to come out!

All Day Comfort

The R1 Air performs, feels, and fits like a dream. I like the half hem cuff, half hem on the torso, and small chest pocket. The fit sits between slim and Regular. The torso is more of a normal length than the R1 which I really like. The brushed finish is super soft an both sides and lends to its breathability. Its also very light when it feels like...

From Couch to Trail and Back

Having owned an R1 from 2013, which is still going by the way, I opted for this newer version of the R1 because of its thicker pile both inside and out. It's as plush as the R1 from years past, but it lacks the abrasion resistant finish as on the R1. That said, its an ideal base layer for added warmth, running, trail-trekking, and chilling on ... Read Morethe couch with the heat turned low. The quality is outstanding as is often the case with Patagonian in general, but most noticeable on the first iteration of new products. The fit is slim so went up a size to accommodate the new dad bod. I would buy another one in a minute, but may opt for the hooded version when it become available. Very pleased with this purchase overall.

Read Moreiously feels like being wrapped up in some sort of super powered armor, versatile and ready for anything! I'm now contemplating purchasing the R1 Air Crew just so I can keep this thing on my body at all times (excluding the summer months). 10/10 thank you Patagonia for engineering this godly piece of apparel.

January 10, 2021

Very warm

Its little warmer than the other R1. I expected this R1 air is stretchy as capilene air, but its not. My shoulder is not flexible, so it make me hard to remove. Its very comfortable to wear, though.

Same R1 goodness

Fits a bit tighter and shorter than the R1 half-zip and lot than the full-zip. Don't get caught out like I did and rip the labels off in a hurry.
