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.

Ms R1® Air Zip-Neck

Kinda Large
September 19, 2023

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!

September 14, 2023

Best mid layer

Lovely , quality mid layer with high neck.Already my favourite and from an ethical company. Highly recommended

August 24, 2023

Excellent piece

Perfect fit and wear.

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!

July 2, 2023

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](

What one comes to expect

Great fit, fabric and style. Easy to wash and wear. Patagonia never disappoints.

May 8, 2023

Really like it

Size would be good as a base layer. But wanted it to fit over a t-shirt sized base layer. Customer service was fantastic on return and reorder. Still waiting for XLg but expect perfection

May 5, 2023

Excellent product.

My only complaint is that you don't make your products quite long enough for tall people.

April 27, 2023


Great piece for casual wear or as a mid layer. Really love the fit and the sleeve length is nice. I really dislike short sleeves. The fabric is awesome, make more with this stuff...

April 26, 2023

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.

April 19, 2023


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.

April 11, 2023

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.

April 7, 2023

Excellent top

Super comfortable and true to size. Keeps you warm and looks good.

April 3, 2023

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!

March 27, 2023


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. Quite warm, and extremely breathable. The asterisk is because it does get smelly after a sweaty wear. Not all polyester garments do this ... Read Moreon me, but this one does. Not as bad as some, but it does mean that it needs to be washed frequently, and I hope it holds up over the long run.

March 27, 2023

Very versatile

I'm 6'2, about 195 lbs. Med is tight but sleeves are long and provide full coverage. Excellent base layer and showed pilling under arms immediately. After wearing a light weight sun shirt over it reduced friction and allows full range of motion and I don't get too hot. Best used as a base layer and has held up well working bedside as... Read More an RN.

March 27, 2023

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.

March 17, 2023

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.

March 16, 2023

Love love this top, my

Love love this top, my hubby got one and he loves it too . Its great for all the adventures we do , thank you to the shop staff for their recommendations, they were super helpful.

March 4, 2023

Very warm & slim fit

Warm and slim. Wear with a baselayer and downhill ski in 30 degrees weather no problem. Odor (like smokey smells in restaurants) accumulates pretty quickly but that's a small downside!

March 3, 2023

Great material and great fit

Great material and great fit

February 26, 2023

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.

February 24, 2023

Handsome garment

Very nice looking pullover, looks so cozy it makes even me huggable. Great alone or as a mid layer.

February 23, 2023

Versatile Temp Range

One of Patagonia's best products. It is warm, comfortable - even over a broad temperature range. It layers really well under rain shells and winter parkas.

February 22, 2023

Warm and Lightweight

This fleece pullover is one of my essentials. It's much warmer than you would expect, while also being very lightweight. I highly recommend for on the go activities.

February 21, 2023

Great mid-layer for active sports

This piece is replacing a 25-year old R1 that has been put through the wringer. I like the style and functionality of the new one. The old one is still going, but looks a little worse for; whereas the new one can even go to the office.

February 20, 2023

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.

February 17, 2023

Light weight but just right amount of warmth

This is another R1 item for my large pieces of r1 and r2 collection. They are all different but great .

February 16, 2023

Must Have Multi-tool

Great layering piece on the slopes and the perfect top for heading out for drinks and dinner. Only wish is that it was an inch or two longer in the body.

February 16, 2023

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.

Best Jersey

Great product, super light and cozy

February 10, 2023

Very warm.

Very warm when compared to my old R1 and R3. The weight to warmth ratio reminds me of down. It takes a minute for the heat to become noticeable, but then you feel it. Dumping heat is easy with the half zip.

February 10, 2023

I could live in this top

I absolutely love this top. Comfortable enough to sleep in and very warm. Super soft material. I would highly recommend.

February 9, 2023

R1 Upgrade

I've been wearing a R1 half zip for the past 10 years and it was time to upgrade. I'm 6'4" 195lb so the fit can be a bit tricky. The XL works great, not loose but not snug and the arms are perfect. Very warm under a shell and great by itself, very happy I made the jump

February 8, 2023

This is so warm and

This is so warm and comfortable. I put it on to check the size and have not taken it off. The chest pocket could be larger for phone.

February 8, 2023

R1 is the Best !!!

R1 is the Best !!! Cozy warm mid layer or shirt in Montana.

February 5, 2023

Exactly what I was looking

Exactly what I was looking for . Thin but warm. Went snowboarding on a 20° day. Only wore a 1st layer then this R1 fleece and my shell jacket and was comfortable all day. Perfect!

February 3, 2023

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.

February 2, 2023

So comfy

Gave this as a gift to my husband and he loves it.

February 1, 2023

Nice Ski layer

Great layer under my coat on the mountain!

January 29, 2023

Super soft

I absolutely love this pullover. Its so soft and comfortable and looks great. I am 6-1 195lbs and the medium is a little tight. You need to make this 1/4 zip version with a hood Patagonia!! That would be awesome!!

January 29, 2023

Super comfortable

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.

January 27, 2023

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

January 26, 2023

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

Daily driver

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.

This my 3rd one. They're so soft and warm, but not itchy like wool sweaters. I have worn these to work under a sport coat and also to the golf course as a stand alone piece.

January 23, 2023

Great tech fleece

Awesome piece! I stated "runs small" but it's a tech fleece, it's close to the body as it should for active scenarios. Truly love it. Breathable yet light and warm

January 21, 2023

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.

January 18, 2023

Perfect Layering Piece

Great addition to my everyday kit for the mountain. Pairs well alone under a hard shell or under a mid-layer on the coldest days. Fit is spot on, however the chest pocket could be made a touch taller to allow use with average size phone.

January 18, 2023

R1 air love fest

I've been buying Patagonia for 40 years, and I'm always impressed with the functionality of the gear. As soon as I saw this piece; I knew it would replace my lost one, but I did not know how much better you folks have made it. It keeps me dry on a walk or jog and allows me to enjoy the winter outdoors as if it were spring. The material is... Read More super soft and fluffy, and I will not remove the pilings that will come. More loft! The collar is warm and comfortable, and the super deep front zipper makes removal a breeze! (Stiff old ass shoulders) I must say that I have a real hard time leaving this piece at home. Base layer, R1 and shell and you are ready for anything. Now my wife wants one!

January 13, 2023

Fancy Fleece

Good garment, I run hot, the piece can feel on the warm side depending on the temperature. Breathes well .

January 12, 2023

Good mid layer

I use this for cycling in 25-40 degree weather as a mid layer and it works well. My only complaint is the chest pocket is too small to hold my phone.

January 3, 2023

Very soft and fits great!

I bought this for my husband for Christmas and he loves it! It's very soft to the touch and fits him well in a size M. He's 5'9" 165 pounds

Warm and breathable. My favorite

Warm and breathable. My favorite fleece yet. Perfect mid layer for Alpine skiing. Purchased 3. Cool colors.

The R1 runs small I had to exchange and go up a size. Overall the product is warm however it is not wind resistant. One can cool off very fast if not moving. Overall a good product for active pursuits

December 30, 2022

New favorite

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.

I ... Read Morecould see getting a small if you were wearing it purely as a base layer (it would be next-to-skin), but I like throwing a t-shirt on under it and wearing it as a casual daily-wear piece. But when I'm exerting a bunch of energy outside, it breathes really well and dumps all the heat. When there's wind, just throw a shell on over it and it's perfect. It's weird to talk about a piece of clothing like this, but it really is that good!

December 28, 2022

Inflexible and tight

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. I used to enjoy wearing my R1 for casual use but the fabric of the R1 Air is tight and doesn't stretch like the original. I find myself grabbing other la...

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.

very comfortable on a daily basis, wicks well, much preferred over original R1 with my activities

Versatile Layer

Great as a base layer for strenuous exercise in the cold, but stylish enough to wear to work (for me, in a classroom). I am 205 and 6-1, and the Large fits snug but not so tight I cant wear a light shirt under it.

Super Comfy

I ended up buying multiple colors because the fit, warmth, versatility, and the wear post-washing is so good on this Garment. I will wear it over a t-shirt, under a down sweater, and then wear it on the mountain as a layer in single-digit weather.

Luxury Warmth!

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.

Great fleece- small chest pocket pointless

Top notch quality and style.

As is always the case with Patagonia products, the best.

Worn this about a half dozen times in temps down to about 11 degrees. Works so great! Warm mid-layer, super soft and fits me really well. I am fairly broad in the shoulders but it isn't too tight. Really like this!

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.

Cozy, well designed, great fabric, nice color

This pullover is very warm, and the fit is just right. It's been great for hiking, post-yoga, and around town. Very happy with it.

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.

Super light weight, but warm as heck.

Amazing fleece! It's great to throw on in the chilly mornings, then toss it in your bag when it gets a bit warmer. This is lighter than every other fleece I have seen which makes it a great travel item.

Great design and fit.

Great looking!

Purchased this for my son for a gift. He said it is comfortable but not oversized.

Great performance as always

I use this for my city bike commuting, keeps out the chill without making me feel clammy, great with a baselayer and windshield if needed.

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... Read Mores, I can't say, but my hunch is that it probably won't hold up as good as some of the previous models. Still a great undergarment so I gave it a 5 stars. PS please make the chest pocket larger in the future as it won't hold my, or anyone else's, phone!

An Ice climbing layer

Needed a mid layer with a collar. This fits well. Its the perfect weight for warmer weather and a perfect layer under a shell for not so good weather. I like the articulation

Suberb Quality & Fairtrade

Perfect fit. The size guide is doing a good job. Suberb quality and Fair trade. I can only hope for that.

October 21, 2022

Breathable and warm

Best fleece I own. Not bulky, fitted length, and warm yet airy. And when it gets a little colder, it functions well as a mid-layer. The only issue is it runs quite tight. I usually wear XS but had to exchange for S

This is the first product

This is the first product of many, many Patagonia products that I found disappointing. Everything about the product is great except the zippers and the front pocket- the zipper is too small a gauge (it doesn't pull easily) and the pocket is too small for just about anything. There is no chance of putting a phone or sunglasses in the pocket and... Read More other than a credit card I can't think of what else it might hold. Why have a pocket that is too small to use? I still wear the pullover, I'm just mystified and disappointed.

Nice light weight sweater to keep you warm

I like it is light and easy to carry. I keep this one in my travel backpack. You never know plane can be freezing. I usually wear large but it fits better with XL for this item. May be I am still growing:).

Looks like a great replacement for an old friend

My Mountain Hardwear Monkey Mesh Grid finally gave up after 8 years of faithful service - the zip broke - and they no longer make it.

runs slall

at 180cm/80kg i usually run M in the regular sized patagonia products. this one on the other hand is slim fit, and size M did not fit over my shoulder even tho its supposed to be athletic fit. sizing up to L was the answer to my problems. the product is amazing. would recommend.

Classic Patagonia

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.

September 26, 2022

Great base/under layer

Most days I wear this on top. The chest pocket is invaluable. As the season changes This will be one of my go to base layers. It provides a perfect layer on a chilly fall morning. I had a similar fleece That I lost. I was excited to get this on sale!

Hi Michael! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear that the fleece wasn't a good fit. We rely on feedback like this to improve products for future seasons. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](

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.

R1 Fleece

I have several R1 1/4 zips but the looks and warmth of the new style is terrific

August 29, 2022

Good fit

5ft 7in 155lb athletic, broad shoulders, M is a good fit, its not too long in torso or arms. Tight enough fit but not too tight. Warm and looks decent as well.

August 15, 2022

Best technical fleece I’ve owned (so far)

Super comfortable material, light in weight and slim fitting as a layer. I also found the collar to be sufficent in protecting the neck under the jacket.

The Perfect Daily

Provides a good deal of warmth while remaining breathable. Purchased for hiking however is tidy enough to use as a daily when the weather's a little cooler. Fits perfectly: 5'10, 11st, slim/athletic build

May 22, 2022

Pocket size

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.

May 9, 2022

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!

May 5, 2022

Lightweight, cozy and versatile

This thing is a grade eh beaut. Cant beat the R1's soft cozy feel, perfect for hanging around the house in, but also packs super small so I can fit it in my fishing bag for those 'do I need another layer?' days.

May 2, 2022

It's a R1 on steroids

Really love this piece. I have been a fan of R1s for over 20 years and this piece doesn't disappoint. Lightweight and breaths well. Throw a shell over this and it becomes a furnace. Such a versatile piece.

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.

April 28, 2022

Warm without the weight

Stylish and athletic cut. Warm for all conditions without the heavy weight of some fleece.

Love the new tech changes: quite warm, zazzy appearance and very light weight. Nice change for the old R1s.

April 14, 2022

Perfect warm ratio for me.

This fits me perfectly and im on the slimmer side. Might run smaller on most. The warmth ratio is perfect for me. A t-shirt underneath and this as my mid layer, i rarely need a jacket on top during activities or at work. I love the fit, not too tight and not too loose. Low maintenance and easy care.

Love the fabric

I love these fleece. I wear these as base layers for the most part. They're wildly comfortable and wick sweat like nobody's business. I'm 5-10, 180 pounds on good days. I've got a couple mediums and a large. The mediums are snug (OK) and kind of short in the torso (not as OK). As a base layer, they're tough to keep tucke... Read Mored in. The large is roomy enough to be a mid layer and long enough to stay tucked in. A little longer in the torso for the medium and I'd be completely satisfied. Add thumb loops and I'd be thrilled.

Warm and cozy

Very soft and warm for its weight. I love the chest pocket too. The only thing I would change is to maybe make the chest pocket large enough to hold an iPhone. Overall I highly recommend!

Perfect fleece

So I wrote an earlier review, saying this sizing on this was off. And it was, on that first piece. But on the second go-around, the men's small was just perfect.

Warm as sweater but ultra light weight.

I found this a prefect outer layer to wear outside a dress shirt in the office during the cold season. The style is casual but still fit well for a business setting.

March 25, 2022

Soft, wary and dry, great under a rain shell

Incredible warmth for the weight. Where this pullover really performs well is under a rain shell in grimy, cold rain and sleet. Nothing has ever kept me drier and warm in this kind of weather. I also appreciate the softness, especially around my neck when I zip it up.

Super warm- very comfortable

Im 61 and 165lbs , and the medium is a snug, but for me, perfect fit with whatever T-shirt Im wearing that day. In dress shirts Im a 34/35 length arm and I find these sleeves to be similar length.

Thank you for your feedback, Makoto. We're sorry to hear there is pilling on the friction areas. You might try using a fabric shaver to remove that pilling and help your fleece look better longer. If it doesn't work and you aren't satisfied, please remember you are welcome to [return]( it.

In what universe is this an XL?

This is my third version of this top and each one gets smaller. It may be that I'm getting bigger as I age (sad but true) but the garment is also shrinking with each version. Please, please, either make an XXL or make the XL large enough to fit a real person.

A great fleece to wear by itself or as a base layer. Very soft and holds its shape and texture with washing. Very pleased with the purchase.

Great for active wear - both warm and breathable. But also looks good for casual wear. Zigzag pattern isn't quite as prominent as photos make it appear (at least in black).

Lightweight, warm and cozy

I run hot so finding something that breathes is important. Ive worn this in San Francisco on cold days solo and colder days with a thin base layer. A couple of weeks ago when it was 34 degrees in the East Bay, I wore it solo and I was fine! Highly recommend!
