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.

really nice extension of the R1 collection
i left my original R1 top in the Dolomites and needed a replacement. chose to try this new layer instead of the original style. the fit is the same as the R1 standard, which is nice. no adjustment needed. this layer has a bit more style to it. looks good, pairs up with a base layer very well. planning on having this is the quiver for quite some t...

Dear Patagonia this is advertised as technical style fit, ostensibly for active technical people. Im 6 feet I bought a large the shoulders are fine but theres miles of fabric around the midsection.

Hello James, thank you for your review of the Men's R1 Air Zip-Neck. We are sorry to hear about your disappointment in the fit and sizing. We appreciate this feedback as its how we improve things for future seasons. If you ever need help with sizing or specific measurements, we are always [happy to help](https://help.patagonia.com/s/)!
Ive waited about a year to write this review because I wanted to give this product a fair chance. I want to preface that this Is mostly a comparison to my absolutely favorite Patagonia product, the R1 fleece. Ive owned my current R1 for a little over 5 years and it is my favorite article of clothing. Around the house, anytime the weather cools off ... Read Moreoutside, any chance I get. I wear my R1 to the point that my wife has mentioned multiple times I need to stop because it appears in so many pictures of me and our family that people will think its the only thing I own. I bought the R1 air last year to try and least give myself another option and after a year it gets worn rarely and if given the choice I will always put the R1 on instead. Some benefits to the Air version: I would say it looks more casual and less technical than the R1, much easier to pull off wearing it to a casual office day over a polo. Thats about it in my opinion. It offers very little stretch compared to the R1 and has always felt a little tight due to the lack of flex. The sleeves lack any elasticity and therefore whenever I went to pull them up I constantly have to adjust compared to the R1 which really stays. I would also say, and again personal preference, I find the original grid pattern to be softer and more appealing against the skin than the Air. The lack of stretch also hurts this piece whenever a true base layer (usually a Smartwool 150) is required underneath. The fit is so tight that it feels almost suffocating and I find movement is also hindered. I think in certain casual scenarios this is a great addition to Patagonias line, but in my opinion I will continue to reach for my tried and true R1 every chance I get. Sorry to my wife it appears it will be in pictures for many years to come.
Love it but,
I love how warm and soft this is! The fit is a bit slim though. The model on line was 6’ something, wearing a medium. It looked like it fit loosely. I’m 5’8” 180 and I would call the fit snug. Laugh if you want. Yet a large version is was too big. It’s a slim fit for sure. Like I said I love the instant warmth.
Hey Steven, thanks for the feedback! You're correct, this zip-neck does have a slim fit. You can check the fit of any item by going to the product page and clicking on the fit tab under the product description. If you prefer a regular or relaxed fit, you can check out [these options](https://www.patagonia.com/shop/mens/fleece?prefn1=fit&prefv1=regular%7Crelaxed).
A very good midlayer
Not much to say as it was not used yet for skiing. The material is very soft and pleasant. It is rather light but looks like it will bring enough heat especially when active. Difficult to evaluate breathability but it looks top notch and construction quality is good and it should be long lasting.
Terrific, but pocket is too small.
I have owned many Patagonia garments over the years from various product lines. I continue to find the R1 range to be the most functional garments I own. I use the Air version for pajamas, lounging, casual wear, hiking, cycling, and running. The Air series is very informal due to the wavy fabric, so I wouldn't necessarily wear this to work. ... Read MoreTo the design team: the pocket is about 1/2" too small in both dimensions! I would wager that over half of prospective buyers of the R1 will own an iPhone. I own a standard size iPhone and do not use a case. I have to really shimmy it into the pocket for it to fit. Any user with a case, Max sized phone, or Android flagship (e.g. Pixel) will be out of luck. This is not a deal breaker for me, but it certainly will be for some users.
Great base layer for skiing!
I bought this last year for skiing and used it a bunch last season in Colorado as a base layer. Loved how it's thin enough to feel light but also thick enough not to need a mid layer on most days. Front pocket is useful and long neck keeps the wind & snow out. Really liking this R1-1/2 zip pullover fleece!
Chest pocket is too small for my phone
I ordered Mens size XS (usually women S) because I like outside chest pocket for my phone when Im skiing or doing other activities but this pocket is too small to fit my iphone 14 (not even Pro size) R1 pullover and Mens Better Sweater (I ordered Mens because I like outside chest pocket) has large pockets and Im very happy about it. Other than the... Read More size of the pocket Im very happy with this top. Very soft and nice fit! I cant wait to wear it this winter!
Pocket too small
This 1/4 zip is wonderfully soft, good colors, good around the neck and a nice fit for a slim guy like me. But, the chest pocket is too small for my iPhone Pro. This is not the Max version of the phone so I was surprised it did not fit. Unfortunately that was a deal breaker for me. If that is not a concern for you, go for it.
Hi Ted! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're sorry to hear about the disapointment with the size of the pocket. Feedback like this is crucial to making improvements for future seasons so we'll share this with our design team. Please note, your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Love the Design
I have 6 different colors of this pullover. I love the design and quality of it. Love the contrast between the chest pocket color, zippers and the rest. It's warm in non-windy weather and you can wear it by itself. If it's windy outside, I recommend wearing a jacket on top of it. It's slim fit so go up a size.
I like the pullover and it fits the description of it. my only problem with it and almost every other pullover I have is that it is hard to get into and out of because the interior of the garment catches on whatever is underneath it. I wish you would design a fleece with a slick, satiny inner lining that doesnt hang up when you take it off and on.
doesn't feel stuffy for active pursuits
It is light, breathable, and doesn't feel stuffy, making it perfect for active pursuits. The sizing is true to fit, with a slim cut that's comfortable without being too tight. Overall, it's a favorite choice in my pack and a reliable option for anyone looking for a high-quality pullover.
Its always just right!
This jacket continues to amaze me in its ability to keep my Corr at just the right temperature. Whether I am skiing, volunteer patrolling, relaxing and hanging outside at the mountain on a cold day or hiking in 50° temps this jacket seems to be the right layer. Its ability to keep me warm but not too warm is exceptional. Its always just right!
Reviews mentioned it runs small. I'm usually a small, rarely a medium but sized up and it's pretty prefect, maybe a tad long in the sleeve, but extra length in the body is nice for keeping it tucked in.

Almost perfect. Difficult to take off.
The most comfortable mid-layer fleece product I've ever owned, hands down. It looks great for a wide range of uses. It's really difficult to take off, it's a lovely weight and incredibly soft. The chest pocket is small but well integrated and you can fit the key essentials in there (normal size iPhone, card holder, credit card, keys)... Read More. A plea to Patagonia though: PLEASE do a V2 of this product with the 'R' removed from the left forearm. It's just unnecessary, and adds nothing. If it was any more visible it would entirely ruin the otherwise subtle look of the product which is what makes it so versatile for those of us who are not buying purely for sport.
It's my new second (warmer) skin
There was a lot of time spent researching which layer and brand to go with for a layer top like this and the R1 Air 1/2 zip fleece has totally exceeded any and all expectations. I don't think my wife has seen me around the house, or running errands, without it on. I bought this to complete my kit for sport climbing this season and I didn'... Read Moret take it off the entire weekend on a recent trip to New Jack City and wear it to the climbing gym every night. The close, athletic fit was precisely what I was looking for to put over a shirt and under a light puff jacket. It is well insulated, but breathes too. The half zip lets you dump heat and the high neck keeps you snug and warm on a route when fully zipped up. You will not regret this purchase.
Good gear for the--not so old--geezer.
At age seventy-four, I'm feeling more of a need to be comfortable when I'm out hiking or working outside. This pullover has a tall neck that is particularly nice on cold windy mornings, and the utility chest pocket is all I need for house keys. With a base layer or two underneath and a shell on top, I'm in good shape when the wind-ch... Read Moreill is in the teens. Having good gear from Patagonia has raised my enjoyment by lot, and as a bonus it supports a great company.
Warm but Fabric Durability Questionable
The good: yes, its toasty warm. Sizing: as many others have stated, it runs a bit small. I can go with either a medium or large depending on the cut and for this garment, the Large is a good slim fit without being snug on me. Pocket: I can fit an iphone SE 2020 (iphone 6 form factor) into it but its a tight fit and getting it out requires a tighter... Read More squeeze through the zipper than seems advisable... but you can do it. Any bigger phone is a no-go. The not-so-good: The zig-zag pattern in the fabric is made by having fleece in that pattern with spaces in between. The 'spaces' are nothing but the fine mesh substrate that the fleece is connected to. Hold it up to the light and you can see through the mesh like gauze. After 3 wearings - the fleece is pilling badly where it rubs against itself like the sides of the torso and undersides of the sleeves. It already looks a year old after having it 6 days. I'll be returning it - perhaps the pilling would stop where it is, I don't know, but the fabric design just seems too fragile to last years like most Patagonia products.
Good, but color a bit off
Really like it, but the pocket color is much more baby yellow than the darker cooler gold color shown in the photo.
Thanks for the feedback, Derric. We'll notify our web team of the color depiction issue. If you'd like to exchange the fleece out for a different color, click [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Comfortable and Warm
I ordered this for another layer while skiing but also for hiking and going to work. It very comfortable, length is good, not too long, not too short, sleeve length also good. Comfortable on my skin and really warm for the weight, I bought the green, nice looking, I'll probably buy another one next year.
This is hands down my favorite midlayer. Warm, but not hot. Trim fit, but not restrictive. Breathes well. I really like that it does *not* have thumbholes or the overly long sleeves needed for them. The thick, standup collar is just the right height. Overall, this top is darn near perfect.
Zipper needs an inside placket
5'7" 157 lbs, 38" chest, got the size small and it fits slim as expected, almost a baselayer. Length is fine to me. The pit area may be too snug, but no surprise for a technical piece. I layer a light t-shirt under all the time. My warm and breathable mid-layer. Pocket is about useless, too small. The zipper is nice and minimal, but... Read More my gripe with it is it can easily pinch the skin of my neck if recklessly operated by one hand. In my case, it could really use an inside placket. I just have to always be mindful and slowly zip up. Or use my thumb as a guard
Incredibly warm and comfortable but the colour online is significantly different than in real life
This is very comfortable, light, warm and durable. I don't wear it though because the colour I ordered was much darker and brighter online than in real life and I absolutely hate the light blue it is
Hi Kayla, thank you for submitting this review. We're sorry that Wavy Blue isn't what you were looking for!

I love these fleece. I use them as a base layer/daily wear all winter. Extremely comfortable. Wicks perspiration like crazy when hiking. Warm. Soft. I gave up on my usual size mediums with these.

Good, but get the proper size
Nice item, but as others have mentioned the chest pocket is too small to be useful. Definitely a design mistake. I'm not sure why there has been a trend toward "slim fit" sizing, but I do find it unrealistic considering that everyone isn't a rock climber or 25 years old.
R1 air love fest
I've been buying Patagonia for 40 years, and I'm always impressed with the functionality of the gear.

It's not too often I try something on and am blown away by how awesome it is all around, but this is one of those items for me.

It's weird to talk about a piece of clothing like this, but it really is that good!

I was excited to upgrade from the original R1 grid fleece to the R1 Air. After a few months of use I wished I repurchased the original. My main complaint, The R1 Air is tight and inflexible.

Too Small. Too short. Ugly green (not grey)
The mens top was too small by two sizes (US). The top was too short (to tuck in). The color was an ugly baby poo green instead of a plum grey. The band at the waist and sleeve is cheep and will not hold up. All in all a cheap $5 top that is very ugly and will fall apart during any active sport.

I have several R1 items and find this the R1 Air to be another very good product. I wear it over a Capiliene base layer during hikes into remote fishing locations.

This product works perfectly to keep my upper body warm on long walks with my dog in cold or rainy temperatures. But it came without any care instructions. Wash temperature? Drying? I am being extra cautious as I use it daily but would rather include it with normal loads if no harm would result.
Thank you so much for writing this review Peter! When it comes to washing this item, you will want to machine wash in warm water with light detergent and then tumble dry on low-to-no heat. If you have any other product care questions, please feel free to follow this link: [here](https://www.patagonia.com/repairs/).
This fleece runs small. I usually wear a medium, and it fits a bit snug. For me, Im using over a liner shirt (capilene) in shop and garage and even indoors when its cold. Its incredibly comfy and warm, especially around the neck which I like as the capilene layer shirts are low-neck. Luxary warmth!
Great product, even better service
Initially the product never got delivered and i was a bit bummed thinking the process to get a replacement would be long. NOT THE CASE! Reached out via twitter and was taken care of immediately, great customer service. As for the product its warm, fits nice and snug and has some style. Overall great!
A truly great midlayer
This is a great midlayer. I have two and they're both in heavy rotation from fall to spring. Shines as a midlayer skiing or mountain/fat biking as well as a casual wear.

Read Moree; be aware that it's more on the trim side rather than loose. Zips work well and sleeves are a perfect length.

The perfect layer
I love this new baselayer. It is super warm, light and mobile. I bought a large and extra large and wear them for ranch work in the PNW, skiing just about everything. I recently wore it solo every day for a week in 40° PNW rainy weather and it was perfect. My favorite baselayer all of them.
I've only worn this a few times since purchasing. It looks nice and keeps you extremely warm. I wore only a cotton t shirt underneath with temps in the 50s & sunny. The few times I did wear it for walking in the early morning I had to peel it off because it was so warm. Looking forward to wearing it below 50 degrees here in Boston.
Excellent garment--wear it to the
Excellent garment--wear it to the ranch every morning--10 below to 20 above with a light base layer and Carhart hoody. Needs no lycra to get on, but a heavier person might need a larger size. Love the colors and fits perfectly for work or play. Just bought a second one.
Warm and soft
I had several R1tops that I lost in a flood last year. This insulated Patagonia tops have varied through the years; some have chest pockets, some have thumb holes, you get the picture. This was one is very soft but does not cut the wind like the older R1 models. However if layered the "air" R1 will be and is warm. As far as durability goe...

This is the first product
This is the first product of many, many Patagonia products that I found disappointing.

I originally bought a Medium, but it was surprisingly trim - so I swapped for a Large.
This looks like it will be very warm (too early in the season here to know for sure) and the fit is as described = slim. I knew that it didn't have spandex when I ordered it, but I had forgotten how hard things are to get on when there is little stretch. I'll give it five stars, but hope for some spandex in the next version.

Light and warm
I like the fit, it is form fitting, not tight, so if you want something more relaxed look elsewhere or size up. I think this garment is perfect when you need something more than a T-shirt until you warm up, but not too heavy and insulating that you start sweating. Like early morning autumn hikes where its cool but you know youll start to heat up ... Read Moreten minutes into your ascent. The open weave helps keep you from overheating and regulate your warmth. I dont think this would be warm enough just sitting around. Cool, active pursuits is where this will work best and was exactly what I was looking for.
I like side-zip chest pockets. They provide a good place to put a cell phone when riding, skiing or running that avoid annoying phone bounce and leg bump. The pocket on this jacket is a bit too small to easily stash or use a small iPhone. Another 1/2 or 3/4 of depth would do the trick.
Warm and breathable fleece
Great fleece - very comfortable band kept me very warm this winter whether I was skiing. Snowshoeing or fat biking. In my opinion it is a bit warmer then the R1 pullover and is a little thicker but overall happy with my purchase. Patagonia thanks for the inclusive sizing it is greatly appreciated and please keep it up!
No Sweat, This Jacket Has Got You Covered
As billed, this jacket performs well in cold weather, high output activities. The "Z" pattern in the fleece breathes nicely yet keeps a good level of warmth. I often straddle the Medium/Large sizes in Patagonia, went with the Large and that left enough room for a midweight top underneath.
