Great lightweight fleece

Love this lightweight fleece. Its not too bulky, which is nice. Pretty warm for how lightweight it is. Runs a little small/is more form fitting.

September 11, 2023

Excellent piece

I really love your pieces. The fit and quality are perfect. I always reach for these items in my closet. Highly recommend this item.

Patagonia has always been my favorite outerwear! This pullover is beautiful abs warm

Fitted, attractive, good layering piece

Beautiful off white color. Love this fitted layering piece. Wear under or alone. Its beautiful.

September 5, 2023

Lightweight but warm

It's a long fit in the torso and ends comfortably at my hips (which I was happy to find). I'm 5'10", 145lbs, and the medium is a slightly loose fit. Would recommend for hiking, and am sure it will serve nicely as a layer for winter activities.

September 3, 2023

Exactly what I needed

Looks great. Perfect fit and high quality.

Too thin to use as a mid-layer

I was excited to see this item go on sale since I had borrowed my sister s R1 in the past and loved it. Unfortunately when my navy blue R1 came it was significantly thinner than I was expecting. It reminds me of a thin long sleeve shirt. Holding it up to the light without stretching it showed it was very thin indeed. (I took a picture to share how ... Read Moremuch light comes right through but I do not see a place to upload review pictures, odd). It is possible that my initial impression of my sisters old R1 being for mid layer use was incorrect and that the item is actually designed to be a first layer. Also possible there is a quality issue with this particular top. Wish I lived near a store. Either way, I already have enough shirts and I am in need a true mid layer so I will be returning. The other item I ordered during the sale was of good quality and will be used for years.

Thank you so much for writing this review Lindsay! We are also very sorry to hear that this purchase led to a return due to the sheerness of the pullover. You may have some luck finding an R1 like your sisters on our [Worn Wear]( site. They offer lightly worn past season products at a discounted price so you may find a previous season R1 Pullover there!

Great layer for traveling!

Great layer for traveling!

Excellent piece

An excellent piece of clothing. I love your clothing so much. It is always my favorite piece in my closet. Highly recommend this half zip.

August 30, 2023

Love this pullover!

It’s lightweight but warm. Should keep me warm while hiking this fall & winter.

August 29, 2023

Perfect top!

This is my go to layer for exercise or just hanging out. Very warm and flattering. A favorite of mine!

August 28, 2023

Always a winner

I think I have this in every color. It is warm and cozy and beautiful. Fits beautifully.

August 26, 2023

Ready for the cooler weather

I love the style and fit of this cozy top that will be in the rotation with my winter layering strategies.

August 25, 2023

Great mid-layer

This mid-layer is exactly what I’ve been looking for! It’s soft and warm and not too bulky so I can layer it for cold days. The fit is great! For reference I’m 5’2” 106 and 32B and an XS fits great and I can layer a tight base layer under it perfectly. It’s also cute to wear for casual wear!!

August 25, 2023

As good as they say!

I was hesitant to try this, but wow - it really is as good as everyone says! Fits great, super warm and the outer fabric holds up really well.

Thank you - love my pullover!

Love the fit and color.

Beautiful Sweater

This is a gorgeous "sweater". It is made of wonderful material, feels warm, nice color and good light weight. I unfortunately have to send it back as it isn't long like it looks in the picture and it hits me right at the wrong spot (top of my hips). It also seems to run a bit small as i usually wear a medium or large (in most clothin... Read Moreg lines) but got the XL so that it would be roomy and long. It wasn't roomy or long. Has to go back.

A thin waffle pattern Fleece

Its warm, but also very thin. Probably regulate temps nicely when out for a run on a cold morning. Waffle like texture. A bit itchy. Overall a nice piece.

I have tried this r1 on several times & it fit perfectly. The one I just received is tight in the sleeves. Disappointing

Perfect weight for runs in cooling autumn temperatures. Its a beautiful, well constructed garment in addition to its functionality.

April 28, 2023

light, versatile, breathable, warm

This is my "do it all" fleece. I am usually bringing some type of R1 item on all adventures. My favorite mid-layer for skiing, I wear it alone on cool hikes, paddle trips, backpacking, you name it, it's always in my pack. It is lightweight, breathes well, dries super fast, it's warm, and easy dump heat w/ the deep quarter zip wh... Read Moreen I start to get too hot. The fit is slim and trim against the body, long enough and comfortable with a pack + hipbelt. I do not climb but know that the longer length works great under a harness. I have several R1s from over the years and would LOVE it if Patagonia brought back the women's R1 hoodie 1/4 zip. It is by far my favorite R1 and would love to have another as my old one is starting to show wear in some areas.

The fit is true to size. Very warm and comfortable for those cold morning walks!

Best gift ever!

This was a gift to a friend. She absolutely loves it and wears it all the time. She lives in Colorado snow country, Crested Butte, so it is a wardrobe staple most of the year, especially in winter.

March 30, 2023

Absolutely Gorgeous

I absolutely love it. This Fleece Pullover is awesome, soft and comfortable. I highly recommend. I did size up because it is a slim fit. I have two now and love them.

March 27, 2023


I love Patagonia technical tops but this one is my least favorite. The waffle texture is scratchy inside. The fit is too snug. Other tops in a similar style are more comfortable.

I got the teal blue

I got the teal blue and love the color. It fits perfectly and keeps me comfortable - not too warm or cold. Plus it looks great under my black sweater vest! Another winner!

February 25, 2023

Perfect fit and weight!

I wore this top as my mid layer on a car camping/hiking excursion. The weather was snowy, windy and very cold. This top was ideal as well as attractive I am 5ft 2 in and weigh 112 lbs. The sleeve length was just right as well as the over all length

February 11, 2023

Running Too Small

I have been purchasing this pull over for many years. I have 5. I have always worn a medium. Lat year I purchased another in medium and it was too small. I did keep it but when I went to purchase this one, I opted for a large. It fits fine but is longer in the sleeves and body than your traditional medium. I do not believe a person who is 5'5&... Read Morequot; and weighs 125 should be wearing a large. My low star rating is based on size and size alone.

February 7, 2023

Comfort plus and instant warmth

Runs very small. Have purchased 6 of these in three different styles and current style is real small. Needed an xxl to not feel like a sausage . Still this a great piece of clothing for the price.

February 4, 2023

Love the color & warmth

Love upper pocket & great on the left side. Had the same kind of shirt for 10 years. Still in good shape. Need a second for backup! I XCTRY Ski & on sunny cold days I usually remove my jacket.

January 30, 2023

Top Layer

Great top layer for physical outdoor activity or lounging around on a chilly day.

January 27, 2023

Best fleece

I love this pullover so much that I bought in two colors and sizes. It has a polished look and shape that can be worn on the slopes or in the office and out to happy hour. Waffle fleece interior next to skin is wonderful. Fabric has some stretch and length is perfect. My bust is 32C, and the S fits like a base layer under ski jacket; M has room to ... Read Morelayer and I wear alone with leggings. Either way, slim fit and flattering. Highly recommend!

January 26, 2023

One of my favorited pieces from Patagonia

A warm breathable fleece, what more could you ask for? Perfect for wearing under a coat/shell for outside, and then not suffocating-ly hot when you go indoors. The cut is perfect, and I love the longer length. It's a perfect piece!

January 25, 2023

Just right layer

I wore this pullover skiing this weekend with Patagonia's merino wool base layer and it worked great to keep me warm under my jacket. I sized up on this product to accommodate thicker layers, but could have gone with my regular size medium as the fabric has some stretch to it. I would definitely buy this product again!

January 6, 2023

Extremely warm nice fit for skiing in cold weather

I just bought the R1 Regulator Fleece Pullover in white and wore it over a Patagonia Capilene Midweight zip neck while skiing in 19 degree weather along with my Patagonia insulated jacket. I was warm and comfortable. This pullover fits nicely to my body and has a less bulky feel than the R1 Air Zip Neck that I also have. I highly recommend it!

January 2, 2023

Excellent very warm top. Replaces

Excellent very warm top. Replaces a sweater and much less bulky. Really like this product.

December 23, 2022

Nice and warm

I had to go back to the store and return it and you didn't have that color in the store so I had to get the Navy and then I had to get yet another size larger so I ended up with a large which was actually too large but I kept it and wear it anyway.

December 16, 2022

love it

warm and fist well, I love the stretch fit, have another in blue and had to get this!

December 14, 2022

The Perfect Piece!

My partner has had one of these tops for a couple years, and I've always been jealous. It looks really nice on and is soft and cozy. I finally made the investment and have had zero regrets. Versatile, warm, breathable, looks nice! Would recommend over and over again!

October 20, 2022

soft, warm, perfect indoors or waling around outside

Fits perfectly - love the material and weight of this top.

September 20, 2022

Great mid-weight layer

Love the R1; I use it for casual wear at work and also as a midweight layer while skiing or winter hiking. Fits true to size, love the waffle fleece inside!

August 30, 2022

Not impressed

Dont think its made very well

Response from Patagonia
September 6, 2022

Thank you for taking the time to submit this review, Jennifer. We're sorry to hear you're disappointed with the R1! We will reach out to you about return options.

May 17, 2022

Perfect for spring weather

I dont usually like pull overs; but this fleece pull over is so soft and easy to get in and out of. Nice light weight and true to size. I would definitely buy again.

April 3, 2022

Good transition weight

This fleece is a good transition weight and great for everyday as well as for travel. The pocket fits my iphone. It is fitted but not too tight. The length is great as it is longer than the waist and covers hips.

March 28, 2022

Love the length & fit!

I am used to most Patagonia women's tops being too short for my liking (making me look boxy and too hippy; bordering on belly tops for my height). This pullover has a bit more length to it (hits past hip) and a slimmer fit making for a very flattering fit. I am 5'9 and 155 lbs. and toggle between a M and L in most tops. The L in this top ... Read Morefits so nice. Gives a little bit of room so I can wear alone or over a shirt or long sleeve fitted shirt. I am finding it perfect for the current "in between" winter/spring weather and think it will also be perfect for the fall. I hope Patagonia makes more ladies tops with the extra bit of length.

March 20, 2022

Very disappointed

I have been purchasing R1 pullovers since they were first offered. Two are 20+ Years old. Ones purchased in the last ten years have been a terrible disappointment. Thin, scratchy plastic that pills and develops small holes, is poorly constructed.. My old, Polartec ones demonstrate none of these issues. My friends and i had been enthusiastic custome... Read Morers but not any more. We discourage all from purchases.

March 12, 2022

Nice and long

I love everything about it except the stitching at the cuffs, which seems a bit rough. The chest pocket looks a little bunchy, also. Would rather have hand pockets due to length. Otherwise- love it!

It's a winner

Man I love these R1's. Its a perfect layering piece. I wouldn't have thought anything of them until my husband insisted I get one, and now I've found my perfect midlayer and will not stray. The best part? The length is great! How many times do I have to return things b/c they are just too short to be functionally? I wish more compani...

February 24, 2022

Perfect baselayer or midlayer for cold days!

Love the versatility of this piece! The gridded fleece inside keeps me so warm. The sizing of the jacket is a slim fit. I sized up and it is perfect. I am normally a large in most Patagonia jackets and shirts. I sized up to a XL in this and it fits like a large does for me. For reference, I am a size 12, 38DD bra, and normally a large in t-shirts o... Read Morer jackets.

February 16, 2022

Great travel piece

This is a great layer for traveling. I went to Germany in fall and ended up wearing this just about every day of the trip. It's a nice length to wear with jeans or hiking pants. It's also a good weight on it's own for a cool weather hike or layering under a rain jacket. Plus it looks great! So glad I bought this versatile piece.

January 19, 2022

Nice and warm!

I have a TNF warm fleece that I use for hikes and long walks in the winter over a light base layer (I'm in California, and usually the temperatures are around 48-55). I find that fleece dumps heat well, while keeping me warm. I do run cold. TNF fleece is lightweight and fine, but I needed a second one, so I tried the Patagonia R1, and I'm... Read More glad I did! I do think the R1 is warmer; also, the neck fits more snugly, which is great. The chest pocket is a nice touch too. My only complaint, which is really minor, is that the fabric is a bit rough against my skin; it is not chinchilla-soft like some other fleece tops. However, since it works so well in every other way, I'm fine with that. I recommend it!

January 8, 2022

Great Multipurpose pullover

Love this pullover, I have two colors now. I have used the pullover outdoor climbing and now with a newborn out climbing, its a great nursing shirt with the front zipper while keeping you warm.

January 7, 2022

Great ski layer

Got it as a present for my girlfriend. She loved it

January 4, 2022

Its not what I expected

First of all, its a bit smelly, and it was straight out of the bag brand new. Smells like a strong plastic scent and Ive washed it at least 4 times with detergent. The fuzzy fleece interior is warm but its definitely underwhelming as a pullover.

December 29, 2021

Warm and Functional

Keeps me really warm on cold weather runs. Love the extra deep chest zip for maximum ventilation as I heat up. Chest pocket also convenient for stashing a key.

December 16, 2021

Sleek, but do I want it to be that sleek?

Its nice, its warm but its too snug! I weigh 120 pounds and am not large, but I feel a bit like Im squeezing into this, prefer warm clothes to have a looser fit. I dont reach for it.

December 10, 2021

Tight neck

My first comment is that this is a great piece in terms of weight and breathability/wicking capability. I get hot pretty quickly when I'm active, and in the colder weather it's especially important for me to be able to dump accumulated heat. The inner fleece and the functionality of the grid is great. My issue is with the neck, which is t... Read Moreight and uncomfortable to zip up all the way. It's great to have that option to stay warm, but not if it's too tight to be comfortable or breathable. This is the third version of this piece that I've owned over the years, and while they all fit differently, the neck has always been too snug (note: I do not have an abnormally sized neck!) There is limited overall stretch to the piece (which, again, has changed over the years), so that might be part of the issue... My suggestion is to try this on and make sure you can move comfortably before you commit!

December 8, 2021

Great mid layer!

Love that this is longer in the torso and goes to mid hip. That is how I like to wear my tops. I am carrying extra focus weight right now 56 and 162. The medium fit well. And I can tell that if I went down to my normal 146lbs, this would still fit well.

December 6, 2021

Comfortable, warm, looks great.

Highly recommended-

November 19, 2021

Good and warm

Bought this to use as a heavier base layer than my thermal weight one. I like it, the slightly higher collar height keeps my neck nice and warm. Gave it 4 stars just because my older mens R1 was fuzzier and softer inside, and I preferred that. Otherwise, it delivers, keeps me warm, pulls excess heat away and keeps me comfortable when Im standing st... Read Moreill for long periods while working.

November 14, 2021

great layer

This is a perfect layer for hiking or around town. I did have to buy up in size so it wasn't too tight, though that made it too long for me. I still wear it, just wish it wasn't so long on me; I'm 5'2".

October 21, 2021

Perfect mid layer

Perfect mid layer for any adventure. Not wind resistant, so on a breezy cooler day may need an extra base layer or top layer

September 10, 2021


Great fit and adjusts to weather conditions.

I was hoping this top had been redesigned as I had tried it on a outdoor gear store and it was just what I was looking for, a slim fit and a longer length, they didnt have small, no problem I thought Id order online, ( must have been an outlier) I realized that ordering online its just the same boxy thin top, dont know why Patagonia doesnt do a pri...

Not the R1 of old but good

I really love R1s, and this latest version fits better and is lighter than previous ones. That being said, I dont find it as breathable as my older versions, which means its great for super cold weather but can feel a little too warm for transitional seasons. Get lots of compliments though so as usual Patagonia delivers on style and fit.

May 14, 2021

A go to top

I have 8 of these in different colors! Always looks and feels good.

May 13, 2021

Can I wear this everyday?

This is the perfect spring/summer weight fleece for everything. I love the way it looks on a zoom call - the slim fit makes it look more dare I say more professional? Also a great spring layer for hiking, long walks, grocery shopping and whatever life throws at you. This is the fleece I want to wear everyday.

Great warm but not too much. Great for chilly mornings

Like it perfect weight for Northern California. Warm and lots of pockets

Base layer with an extra plushness

I have both the R1 and the R2 now, and I'd say I use the R1 more for skiing and hiking base layers than the R2. I went down to an XS in this because I wanted it to hug my body a little more and it still has a little bit of give around the midsection. I have slightly broader shoulders which is why I'm between an XS and S, so the shoulders ... Read Moreare a little snug but for what I'm using it for, I like the fit. A good all-around warm layer, that's more than a baselayer and not as heavy as a puffy or R2.

April 24, 2021

Quite Warm

Slim fit and good quick dry fabric. I bought one of these to try and liked the way it fit on me so I bought another! The one star off is for the slim fit over my middle and hips (if I eat or drink a bit too much, itll show!). Also the pocket is in theory super handy, but being where it is, it does look funny if you have say more than 2 credit cards... Read More in there (a slim phone is ok, but youll consider zipping the half zipper up so its not bouncing around on your left side if youre doing any sort of quicker than just gentle walking movement).

April 1, 2021


The fit is true to size. I ordered an M, although an S would have been snugger. I like my garments to be loose.

March 25, 2021

Miss the older hooded version

The R1 half-zip hoody was truly a staple technical base layer for any outdoor winter activity. Unfortunately this current version seems to have lost its technical features (the hood, thumbholes, the fleece on the current version feels thinner than past versions) that made this such a useful piece of clothing for running, skiing, mountaineering, e...

New Go To Patagonia!

I absolutely love this pullover. This was purchased for me as a gift while in Oregon in the winter. Ive worn it while fly fishing under an outer shell and waders and it kept me very warm but not hot. I wore it hiking through the snow in the mountains and only needed a Nanopuff over it for the first 20-30 mins until I warmed up, and then this zipped... Read More all the way up was plenty warm! I wore this hiking in windy, but sans snow conditions as well and loved it for that, too! It is soft inside and durable outside, if even a bit water repellant. It does run long in the torso and sleeves, but most Patagonia items do. Im 52 and 125lbs, I fit into a small but purchased a medium in case I wanted another Capilene base layer under this. Im not sure Ill ever have a need for that though!

February 2, 2021

New Favorite Piece!

I got this after months of contemplation (primarily for camping, running, etc.), and I have rarely been so excited and satisfied by an article of clothing.

Best Thing I Own

I have had this fleece for a year and have never had anything I've liked better. It's amazing. I wear it inside the house when it's freezing cold and am warm in a jiffy. It is my layer over a short or long-sleeve shirt when I'm running in 20-40F temps; the long zipper gives me plenty of cooling off when I get too warm. It wicks ...

The sleeves are long enough for me to pull them over my hands/gloves if it's cold, but easy enough to roll up as needed. The breast pocket is clutch for keeping my phone cozy on chilly days, making sure I have battery when I need. I wash it in activewear detergent and air dry it and it looks as good as new, with some slight pilling. It fits me well and is nice enough to wear ~out on the town~. Worth every penny!

Patch ("R") sewn on inside of sleeve rubs skin

I recently bought my 2nd R1 fleece pullover because I liked the first one so much. This one (different color) is tighter so shows every bulge. I'm hoping it will loosen up over time. The bigger problem is my skin was being irritated by something rubbing on it. I turned the sleeve inside out and saw a sloppily sewn patch with the letter "R... Read More". The corners are not sewn in so stick up and they are pointed. I have photos but can't upload them here. I've thought about trying to remove the patch myself but fear I'll put a hole in the fabric.

Obsessed with this pullover

I've not been so excited to wear a piece of clothing for a long time. It's perfect for running around Boston in 20-40 degree weather, super lightweight, and warm. It fits perfectly except I can't quite zip it all the way up - a little too tight around my neck, but honestly, I don't care. I am impressed that it works so well. I ...

Warm, comfortable

I have had numerous R1 hoodys throughout the years in size small (135#/5'7"/34B). This small runs big compared to previous versions. I like the length but it is big in shoulders and baggy around the body. This version skipped the thumb holes/loops which I miss. Bottom line: I like my older R1 hoodies better b/c of the fit, thumbholes, and... Read More the material seems more durable.

Mixed feelings

This is my go to layer for colder days in the backcountry, be it touring, climbing, mountaineering, etc. Its almost perfect. I have two qualms. The first is that the sleeves are way too short. I have an athletic/slim build usually wear XS or S. However, the sleeves are so short I can barely take advantage of the thumbholes and they dig into the are... Read Morea between my index finger and thumb. If I were to size up though, the fleece would be way too baggy. The second thing is that I have the hooded version of the R1 and the hood slides over my eyes as I move. These are small potatoes and I just end up not using the hood or thumbholes that much but I do wish Patagonia would make longer sleeves (I have the same issue with other long sleeve tops from Patagonia). Its easier to deal with a slightly too long a sleeve than one thats too short.

Thanks for the feedback, we're sorry to hear that you've encountered some design issues with the sleeves. We've passed the word along. For future, you're welcome to get in contact with us for garment measurements any time you want to confirm that the fit will work for you. Check out the [Women's R2 TechFace Hoody]( We double checked the sleeve length on this one and it is slightly longer than our Women's R1 Fleece Pullover.

Love this Pullover

The purple color caught my eye on line and it is even better in person. The pullover is soft and comfortable with plenty of room for my swimmer shoulders. Love the color and love the fit.

Lightweight and super warm

I first was drawn to this because of the fun green/yellow colors and then after reading the reviews decided to go for it! Im so happy I bought it as it is my new favorite item!

This top does not compare in quality to an older one I have had for years. Alamo runs very long in sleeves and body. Kind of lose up top but tight in the hips for me. I kept it for wearing for paddle tennis. I am not sure if it will work for skiiing - it may stick out under my jacket...

Runs Small

I was so excited when I saw that this was one of the few XXL products offered (please make more!), and purchased it for hiking and running in winter.

Very comfortable

I live in Alaska and find the weight of this top to be great for both indoor activity and for wearing under layers for outdoor winter fun.

Got this for my wifes birthday. She loves it white color was her favorite also the cubed fleece inside super cozy against her skin. She likes that she can use it as a base layer under her down jacket.Patagonia gear always a sure thing. Thanks

Great for layering under ski jacket. Super warm

Perfect layer

This pullover is super warm, soft inside, and serves as a great layover over a long sleeve before I put on my puffy.

Warm mid-layer for colder conditions and climates.

This was my go-to mid-layer for skiing and snowshoeing until I tried the Cap Air Hoody base layer. This item is comfortable, fits well under a ski shell and functions to help maintain body heat in cold weather. A couple of years ago we were camping at Lake Crescent, where we met a family from Montana. One morning the other mom wore her favorite cam... Read Moreping shirt- a Patagonia R1! We talked about how much we both love this shirt. It is her go-to for cold mornings and evenings while camping- in Montana or Washington. She talked me into packing mine for future camping trips!

August 14, 2020

Not too thick, but warm

I like to wear this layer in the winter for casual Fridays as work. It also keeps me warm as a base layer under my coat while skiing. At 5'3, the large size is a bit longer, I like how it falls at my hips. I do need to cuff the sleeves.

June 23, 2020

Cozy and wind resistant

I wear only R1 zip pullovers as my base layer to teach skiing in cold weather.

This is a go to layer for hiking/backpacking/camping.

April 28, 2020

Perfect fit!

I absolutely love this R1! I always hesitate buying items since I have a longer torso because clothing falls short, but not this! Its perfect for those with longer torsos and those who need to layer. Arm length is great too! Thank you for making something that fits me!

March 18, 2020

So comfortable

I love how warm and cozy the R1 Pullover is. Loose enough to wear over a base layer on really cold days with a hard shell. Comfortable enough to wear alone for everyday. Washes up beautifully. I bought one for my son also and it is his favorite shirt.

March 7, 2020

Big difference in sizes

This is a great top, nice material, surprisingly warm and breathable. I just wish the sizing was easier. For reference I am 57, 135lbs, 34D, 26-27 waist. I ordered this online in a medium (Im between a small and medium in Patagonia depending on the product) and I was surprised how big it was. Lots of space under the arms, pretty baggy in the torso ... Read Moreand very long. I went into a store and tried on the small to see if I wanted to exchange, and everything about it fit better other than the arms and shoulders. They were super fitted to the point of too tight. After agonizing I decided to keep the medium since its still a practical top and the larger size is more comfortable. Im surprised at the huge difference between two sizes, especially in the length. The medium is noticeably long, the small was the perfect length. If I could get a top that fit in the torso like the small but the arms and shoulders like the medium it would be perfect!

10 years and going strong

I have 3 of these tops. The oldest is probably 20 years old. These are my go-to ski layer, along with a Pati silk weight first, then the R1 then a Pati down sweater and finally a Pati Gortex coat.

So here's a 5 star review for many years of wear for R1. Get yours.

January 6, 2020

R1 is all I want to wear now!

I love, love, love my R1 Pullover! It's soft and comfortable, and it breathes so well. I only want to wear it, so all my other clothes are getting neglected now. The only improvement I could suggest would be to put hand pockets on the lower front. But it's 5 stars even without low pockets.

Love this pullover. Fitted without

Love this pullover. Fitted without feeling too tight or restrictive. Super light weight but very warm. Thin enough to fit under other layers without feeling bulky. I bought a second color I loved it so much.

Been teaching skiing for 25 years. This pullover is hands down the best shirt I've ever worn. Warm, stylish, and durable.

This is the best pullover long sleeve shirt I own. It is soft and warm Keeps your body heat in. I have barely taken it off since I got it. Great for layering when skiing or hiking or just walking around town.

Hi Emilia! Thanks for your feedback. We're sorry to hear the R1 Pullover wasn't quite what you were expecting. This garment is intended to be a lightweight mid-layer to keep you warm and comfortable during stop-and-go activities. If you'd like to opt for something with a bit more insulation, I would recommend checking out our [R2 Jacket]( Please keep in mind, your satisfaction is guaranteed and you are always welcome to [return]( items!

Nuff said. Hard to find a time or season when the R1 isn't a necessity.

Warm yet lightweight

I love these pullovers, great by themselves but not bulky so also comfortable under a sweater.

November 25, 2019

Toasty perfection

Used at Mt. Rainier, this layer was perfect for trapping heat or venting as needed through our time in the park. A must for snowshoeing season! Many thanks to Patagonia for adding XXL in women's. At 6' 1", the XL shoulders were just too tight.

November 22, 2019

Small updates are great

I've had a black R1 for a decade and added a navy R1 to my collection this fall. I like the seam work on the sleeves. Looking forward to this new R1 lasting over a decade too.

Too Long

Love the color (light blue) and the feel of the pullover, but it is way too long. I am not petite - 5'7". This goes below my bottom. So - it is longer than many of my jackets, and i wouldn't want to ski with it - as I can't tuck that much fabric in to my pants. I'll be returning it, unfortunately.

great layering piece

this warm layer is cozy enough by itself for keeping warm for hikes, runs, etc. but would be a great layer in extra cold weather, too. i love the fit, it is long enough to cover below the waist, yet form-fitting so it hugs ever-so-gently as not to ride-up while running or being active. while it runs small, i think that is a good thing for a layerin...

The Greatest Shirt in the World!!

A favorite piece of clothing in our house. This purchase was a replacement for my wife’s R1 from fifteen years ago that my daughter lost at school. Hopefully she’ll get at least fifteen more years out of this one.

This pullover will probably become one of my favorite layers for Winter. It is super warm, fits very nicely-runs a bit small, and keeps the heat in and moisture out.

October 27, 2019

So toasty

I love this shirt! It's super warm and functional, but still form fitting and feminine, without being too tight (if that makes sense). I wear it hiking, to work, and out to the breweries with friends. Probably going to get another one.

Recently re-purchased one of these after my old one was left behind in a move. The jacket is great for all kinds of weather - it's form fitting enough to work well for layering, but also looks nice on its own.

Wanted one for a while

Got it on sale, in a color that I wouldn’t normally choose, the maroon. Turns out I like the color a lot.

Perfect Midlayer!

I bought this midlayer for a 6 day trek on the Laugavegur Trail in Iceland. It was exactly what I was hoping for and exactly what I needed. I used it a lot as the temperatures were mostly in the 40s. I wore a wool base layer underneath and it keep me plenty warm. It packed down small enough for my pack and was lightweight. Great product!

go-to midlayer for cold-weather aerobic activities

LOVE this R1! Took it to Nepal in December for Annapurna circuit along with another midlayer but I ended up wearing only this one for the whole week.

Fit is forgiving, and I find the... Read More arms a bit long but not enough that I have to pull/fold them up - I don't mind a bit of extra fabric at the wrist in cold weather. I loved it so much that I got the full-zipped jacket version for dedicated outer layer use. P.S. I like both (the half-zip and the full-zip) without a hood because my shells have hoods and I don't like midlayer hood getting in the way in suddenly inclement weather (plus my body doesn't regulate heat fast/well so I tend to prefer separate pieces, i.e. hat, neck gaiter, jacket vs. hooded midlayer), but I still support others' complaint about fewer selections available for women (vs. men) P.P.S. I got last (?) season's with Patagonia logo on the left chest stitched on (vs. sewn-on tag) which I think looks more classy/subtle, just IMHO.

I got my R1 mostly as a layering piece, that being said I was hoping for the torso to be more of a slim fit, and not as boxy as it is.

Patagonia - DO BETTER!

I own this pullover (old version, not the new one), and enjoy it a lot.
