Light and Warm
I love this product. I have several in different colors. It is lightweight, not bulky, and surprisingly warm. I wear a Capilene or Capilene Cool Marino under it. It is fairly snug on my 106 lb, 5'3" body, but there is room for a lightweight layer under it. Size up if you want more room.
Like being wrapped in a hug
These are fantastic pullovers. I have two of them. They are so soft and so warm yet you don’t overheat in them since they vent so well. I love them so much!

Read More I am typically a xs in Patagonia fleece and jackets, but these do run small. Buy one (or 4)-you won’t be disappointed!
The seams down the arms of my old R1 fleece are soft and flat. These seams are folded inward so they form a scratchy ridge all the way down the arm. I can't wear this over a sleeveless or short sleeve shirt, which is what I wanted it for. Please make a tech fleece that doesn't have these scratchy seams!!

Tight around my chest and very small internal pocket
I usually wear size S for Patagonia but probably because this fabric doesnt stretch much and its slim fit, I felt tight around my chest and under arms.

Definitely A Keeper!
I tend to buy my Wife many Xmas presents, knowing she's picky and likely to send one or two back.

Great quarter zip layer
I love this quarter zip! I exchanged the crew neck version with snaps for this item and LOVE this one. It's a great weight- not heavy but it's definitely warm.

Warm and Cozy
I was curious about how this layer would compare to my tried and true R1 pullover. I took it on a snow backpacking trip this weekend and I have some thoughts. First, I do think it is warmer than my original R1. It wicks moisture well and is nice and breathable. I feel like it fits just a bit more snugly though. I have a S in the original R1 and bou... Read Moreght the same size in this and I kinda wish I had tried a M. Unfortunately I do have a dealbreaker with this layer and it is the pocket, or rather, the accessibility of the pocket. I love that the pocket is big enough for my phone (though only barely) but I hate that it's a hidden pocket because you have to unzip the whole neck in order to access the darn pocket which was cold and very annoying! The men's version has a sensible outside access pocket, that is what I want too. I would not buy another women's version of this because a useable chest pocket is something I rate very highly in my outdoor wear.
Thanks for the feedback, Laura. This fleece does have a slim fit, so depending on your prior R1, we could see why it feels a bit more snug. While the zip-neck version of this fleece does have an internal chest pocket, the [Women's R1 Air Full-Zip Hoody](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-r1-air-full-zip-fleece-hoody/40260.html?dwvar_40260_color=BLK) has an external one so we recommend checking it out.
Perfect warm lightweight layer
Perfect middle layer under my ski jacket or lightweight warmth for walking, hiking or biking. Im 5 feet tall and 108 lbs and the fit is on XS is on the small side of perfect, maybe a smidge more room would be OK, but a full size up would be too large.

Magic Breathable Warmth
I bought this to help me ride my bike back and forth to work in Chicago in colder weather without becoming a sweaty, damp mess. So far I've worn it running around for frisbee and just on top of a light sweater hanging outside on cooler nights, and I'm obsessed. So comfy and warm despite it not being bulky.
I Love this sweater, the style, the fit is perfect. I can wear it for outdoor activities and it is stylish enough for casual work days. Zipper perfect length to slip in and out of the neck opening.

Hello Christine! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear the fleece has started to pill. Due to the knit appearance of the face fabric of this particular item, this pilling can be more noticeable To prevent pilling, we recommend washing that item either by hand in cool to cold water, or separately in your washing machine on the gentle cycle. It's best to lay it flat to dry rather than place it in the dryer where the fabric can easily get abraded. To remove pilling that has already occurred, a sweater shaver or sweater stone is an excellent tool and can help the garment look brand new again. Of course, if you are not pleased with the performance of your zip neck, you are absolutely welcome to send it in for a warranty [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).

I love the R1 Air fleece pullover for Nordic skiing on cold days (0-10 degrees F). I wear the Capilene Cool Merino under the R1 Air, and the Upstride jacket as my outer layer.

Why So Long?
As a woman with a normal torso length, I've been growing more and more frustrated with the super long builds on all patagonia base layers the past few years.

Hi Caro, thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. Our Design Team will definitely take your feedback into consideration. In the meantime, if you find the length too bothersome, please feel free to begin a [return or exchange](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) at your earliest convenience.
A fantastic piece
Let me first start out saying this is a fantastic piece. The warmth to weight ratio with ability to breath is bar none. Just phenomenal. Not to mention its softer than the normal R1's, which I love. So then why 4 stars? The cut is just a little off for me. The shoulders are snug. The back length is a little shorter than I like my cold weather ...

Patagonia's normal R1's fit me overall a lot better. Fix these two things, and this is a slam dunk winner!
Great warmth to weight ratio
This is my go-to mid-layer for skiing. I love how warm it is for how light-weight it is. It also breathes well, so I don't overheat. Washes up great and dries very quickly. I don't use the inner pocket, but did have a zipper issue with one of my earlier season ones. I usually go up one size in anything slim fit. There was enough room for ...

Great product - Odd fit
Love the product and material. The material bunches around the shoulders when I purchase a size large enough to fit around my waist.
HI Alan, thank you for this feedback. The R1 Air Zip-Neck Fleece is designed with a slim fit, and it tends to be a pretty straight cut without a lot of give. We're sorry the fit wasn't great for you!

I just received my pullover and have gone for one trail run with it so far but I am IN LOVE and couldnt wait to write a review. It was about 30 degrees out today.

Warmer than a sweater
The lofty baffles of fleece, though small, pack tremendous heat on this pull-over that I wear over a merino base layer as a sweater. In the winter of mountainous Santa Fe, I remain toasty warm all day long. I committed to owning three of these and rare is the day that I am not wearing one!

Runs small - sleeves too long
Body is way to small and yet the sleeves are way to long. Likely returning it which is a pain!

Nice, but size up
Beautiful Teal color. Lovely fabric. I love the air fabrics. Warm.

Love this but the sizing is bad
I ordered a medium and felt it was a little small. So, I ordered a large. Its a little big. I kept the large so I have room for a wool T-shirt underneath. I love the color and material.
Thank you for sharing this feedback, Sarah. We're sorry neither size has been ideal for you! Please let us know if we can be of any help!
Love this top!
I love my R1 air zip neck fleece. It is lightweight and breathable and not too warm to wear indoors during the cooler months yet still provides lots of warmth when layering for winter adventures. Ive received many complements on the light currant blue color. The top is slim fit and has nice long sleeves which fits my body very well.
Not very stretchy material so feels tight in arms and shoulders

This is a soft, warm, fitted top. It is very comfortable and I wear it for casual wear, hiking and work.

Other than that the new R1 Air half-zip is a great purchase for one who wants to stay warm in the colder months..
Best mid layer ever
Love this zip top! I was looking for something warm, but not bulky for layering with base and light jacket to wear hiking and snowshoeing. The fit is perfect - fits over the base, and jackets fit easily over that. Its a perfect fit, and incredibly warm for such a lightweight piece. Exactly what I was looking for!

An interesting new piece for Patagonia. As usual (and I have been a Patagonia wearer for 33 years, and own just about everything), the fit is long and narrow.

I'm keeping it but I suspect the version 2.0 will be better?
Hey Carolyn, we appreciate the feedback on fit with this piece and will share your thoughts with the team. If you decide it's ultimately not working for you, feel free to [send it back](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Wasn't expecting how soft it would be! I have an older R1 from several years ago and this is definitely a cozy upgrade. A great mid-layer for colder days or on its own in the spring and fall. I am taller and I'm always very happy with the length of Patagonia's tops/sleeves. This is no exception.
I do not like tight fitting clothing and this fleece is fabulous. A base layer fits nicely underneath and shoulders are roomy enough to fit my swimmer shoulders. Besides being soft and super comfortable, the fleece is warm. If I could have have one in every color, I would. I would love to see some brighter colors though.

Why the change
I have several Patagonia tops that I love and fit well. I have always bought size small. This top was extremely tight and extremely long. I was very sad that I had to return it. I loved the fabric.
