Additional Information

Warm, stretchy and breathable like you’d expect from Regulator® fleece, but with the added benefits of abrasion and weather resistance for extended versatility in shifting mountain conditions.

Like an R1® with extra grit, our new TechFace Hoody maintains fleece-like comfort while extending itself into scrappy days on rock, snow and ice. The stretchy, lightweight double-weave fabric (partially recycled polyester, with spandex) offers significantly more wind resistance and durability than our traditional R1® and its articulated pattern further encourages a full range of mountain mobility. An alpine-helmet-compatible, adjustable hood with laminated visor provides coverage and visibility through shoulder-season squalls. Detailing includes a pair of high, zippered handwarmer pockets (with venting mesh), an external zippered left-chest pocket, and sleek, low-bulk stretch-knit cuffs. The adjustable hem snugs via cords routed through the hand pockets, and the DWR (durable water repellent) finish sheds excess moisture.
  • Lightweight double-weave fabric is soft and warm next to skin but doesn’t trap excess heat; face is durable and treated with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish to shed moisture
  • Articulated pattern encourages a wide range of movement
  • Alpine helmet–compatible, 2-way-adjustable hood with a laminated visor provides exceptional coverage and visibility
  • Two secure, high handwarmer pockets with ventilating mesh backer and external zippered left-chest pocket
  • Sleek, low-bulk, snag-resistant cuffs with stretch knit provide versatile coverage and comfort
  • Hem adjusts by pulling cord in handwarmer pockets and releases with dual-point cord locks at front hem

Water Resistant

DWR (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.

Regulator® fleece insulation provides phenomenal compressibility, light weight warmth, and moisture transport, whether used alone or as part of a layering system.

The lofted hollow-core fibers of Regulator fleece insulation conserve body heat while allowing body moisture to wick uninhibited. They’re also lightweight and highly compressible for packing.

Regulator Fleece Insulation provides exceptional breathability to keep you dry on the inside and while Regulator fleece provides the same amount of warmth as a much bulkier fleece, it does so with lighter, more compressible materials. Since you stay both dryer and warmer, you’re able to maintain your comfort over a wide temperature range, which results in fewer layering changes and a lighter, less bulky pack.

Men's R1® Techface Hoody is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alpine Climbers Delight I bought this jacket a couple weeks ago and have climbed Mt Shasta's West Face and Mt Sill via the North Couloir since! Such a great jacket. Fits good over a couple layers with extra room for movement while climbing a steep slope. Fits over the helmet, which is a feature I look for in all outer shells. I am 6'0" and 145 lbs. The long arms are an excellent feature. They allow me to protect my wrists from the sun while I have my gloves on and also keep my wrists from getting cold from wind or snow. On glissading down the mountains, the DWR treatment kept me dry. Really some good thought put into this and it is now my go-to outer layer for California 14ers (except when its too hot for an outer layer).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Technical Zip I purchased this jacket looking for something that's lightweight and can be used in inclement weather, whether I'm working, hiking, or anything active. I also wanted something that wasn't too "extreme" to wear when out shopping or running errands. In this, I found exactly I was looking for. As some others have pointed out, the sleeves can be a little long, and at 5'11", 170lbs, it gives an athletic fit but it looks good and I really don't even notice the added length. I would say that the length in the arms is nice if I'm climbing or riding a bike where my arms have the potential to be outstretched and I'm reaching for something. But honestly, I've never had an issue where the sleeves hang off over my hands or it looks unsightly. Anyway, this is definitely not a bulky jacket meant for super cold weather. I would liken it to an active layer that is definitely beneficial for movements when it's around 50 degrees, or if you're at standstill of temps 60 degrees and up. That's my personal opinion with it, but I haven't been anything but satisfied with the jacket. I love the grid pattern and the jacket is very comfortable to wear. Recommendation: Keep in mind of the athletic fit and make sure you get the correct size. Even though the arms are long, I would recommend sizing up if I was working with a keg instead of a six pack (if you get what I mean). I highly recommend it with its great quality and I'm very satisfied with the jacket overall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect As many others have said this jacket just fits a little odd. I am about 5’10, 200lbs... could lose a few pounds but not overweight by any means and settled on a large. I tried the medium and like everyone else, the sleeves were still long. The medium fit me better in terms of length but could barely zip it. On the medium and large it is very fitted on the arms also.. so if you are Hercules, I doubt you can even get your arms in it. I just can’t get over why or who thought the sleeves should be as long as they are. It’s funny, I wouldn’t say it runs small because of the overall length and the arms, but it is definitely fitted. Now with all that said, I do like the jacket. It’s a light weight jacket and since it is a little fitted stays pretty warm. The fabric for a fleece is great, it’s much tougher and doesn’t scuff like other fleeces. It’s great for running, mountain biking or anything outside. I haven’t tried it snowboarding yet but I bet it’s great because it is a little long so won’t raise high above your waist while moving. For those that haven’t had this like cubed or honey comb(squares) fleece as a mid layer it’s great. Oh yeah the hood... ridiculous. I understand it’s for a helmet, but I would guess 90% of people would just like to wear it on their head for warmth. It’s essentially a dangling parachute hanging from your neck unless it’s over a helmet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love or hate it, your choice This piece is different. Patagonia has gone far with a classic R1. They tired to cover the gap that other outdoor companies have passed. This R1 is wind resistant, larger in size and I will tell you why. The size is larger to allow more air to heat up while in motion and allow sweat to be vaporized in the extra space. The inside is not a high loft fleece. It is a low loft loop in small squares that are further away from your skin and each other. This is what creates the feeling less warmth and clamminess during any aerobic activity. The waist cinch works great and is snug from the sides of the hips to the tail bone.The sleeves can be cocked back beyond that of any R1 and makes it a 3/4 sleeve shirt. There might be some flat seem rubbing from in the elbow or inner arm, that is normal for this style of garment. Gusseted underarms and a very easy lateral hood adjustment from the chin area. Due to the way the fabric is made, it leaves a mindcraft like pattern that is completely unique. It is made for layering, not as a true mid-layer, but is a heavier version of the Houdini. The kid of a R1 and Houdini jacket. Frankly, for myself this is something I wold expect from Adidas or Nike. Myself, I have other pieces that cover this niche much better and thou I want to love it, I can not. The fleece lining is something that makes be question its moisture performance during the early mornings; however, this could a ultra-runner piece due it's niche between soft-shell and 100 gram fleece. To the design team. This piece would be better without a hood. The mesh lined pockets are a great design, and a very simple way to allow any vapor to escape. The low loft terry cloth loops lack any contact to the skin, thus allows high saturated sweat areas while in motion and relaxed. Please either decrease the spacing of the fleece grid squares and allow them to have either a hollow fill yard or make them longer to wick away moisture. I do not know how breathable this is, but I am going to wait for the 2nd or 3rd generation to purchase this again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor fit. I ordered the cost in blue size small. When I tried it on, it was skin tight, no way it was going to work for me so I ordered a medium. It was so big I floated in it. I was so surprised at the difference between small and medium. Unfortunately, I had to send it back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from very disappointed I have been waiting for a zip down r1 hoody. I sent it back immediately. i was expecting the scuba hoody to go UNDER a climbing helmet. the hood was waaaaaay too large I actually was speechless . I love Patagonia gear. its almost all i use. Their designs are great. But i was blown away that the hood was i guess sized to go over a helmet or wasn't designed with a helmet in mind. my thought was ICE CLIMBING?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This is a great piece for active use in mild, cool and breezy conditions. It does double duty as a thin midlayer or as an outer layer that offers greater wind and water resistance than a standard fleece. Slim fit is outstanding. Sufficient room for baselayer and comfort, in no way baggy and has great range of motion. It feels nice and soft against the skin. I usually wear a S/S or L/S baselayer underneath and its just roomy enough to fit over a shirt like a Pima cotton when you pull into town. On colder days, layer it under a vest or another midlayer and shell. I love the hood, it cinches comfortably snug over a bare head or ball cap and provides enough warmth when the chill sets in. I'm glad long sleeves and torso lengths have returned to Patagonia's designs. This is a versatile piece you can wear across a variety of movement activities and climate conditions, and stands out most when you're exerting. It's not as warm as the R1 Hoody, but it blocks wind better and is overall more functional and versatile. I'm 6'2" with 34 sleeve, 42 chest and 32 waist and the fit is perfect. It fits me just like the guy in the picture. My only quibble, which is very minor and in the personal taste category, I don't like hem chord adjustments in the pockets. They don't work any better and just get in the way, and I always make adjustments where the chord lock is anyway. In this case, you'll never be wearing this jacket in conditions so cold or wet where taking your hands of the pockets is an issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than expected Very well put together/thought out piece of gear. Knew up front that the loft was less than original R1. 5'-9", 170lb athletic fit and the medium fits perfect. Slim fit as advertised while still being able to add a base layer underneath. Won't want to spend an hour in it by itself if 20 degrees and gusty but 15 minutes in these conditions to run a quick scouting mission isn't an issue. Comfortable at 60 degrees.
