Patagonia Women's R1® Air Full-Zip Fleece Hoody

Warm and comfortable yet also high performer

This is one of the best fleece products I have ever owned. I also have an Arcteryx Kyanite, but this is my new favorite for its light weight and breathability. We don't use heat at our house, and I have worn this basically non-stop since it has arrived to work from home, as well as on runs and hikes. I will be taking it on my next long through... Read More hike, too. Fantastic product. The only comments for what could be improved in future iterations: 1. make the chest pocket a little bigger and 2. have a zipper guard on the chin area, but these are very minor suggestions and I think this will be a workhorse for years to come. Thanks for the great quality, Patagonia!

Looks Really Worn After Just a Few Weeks

Patagonia is my go-to brand for all my outdoor clothing. I lost a similar fleece earlier this summer and I thought I replaced it with the same item when I bought this fleece. It must have been a different one though because it feels thinner and fits tighter for a large (I like them loose for layering). I'm not a fan of this material because ... Read Moreafter just a couple weeks of wearing this every few days, I feel like it looks really worn already. I don't think I would order it again because of that but I'll give it a go and see what happens as I need something like this to replace my R4s which are wearing out after a couple years.

November 11, 2022

Warm and cozy

I have been saving up to purchase this hoody for some time, totally worth the money. It is a great layer on a cold day. Size small, I weigh 115lbs with broad shoulders. Fits great with room to move freely

November 9, 2022


I really like these hoodies especially for fishing. The fit is great but my favorite is still the fuzzy old R3 hoodies for fit and softness. I wish they would bring those back. I wear these everyday working as a ski instructor.

November 9, 2022

Saying in advance I love it

I think I love this jacket except I ordered my usual size medium and needed to exchange it for a large which I have not yet received. I was able to get a good vibe from the medium though - it was soft and snuggly and surprisingly warm. It was just too tight. I read some of the other reviews saying it is too long but I didnt think so and hoping the ... Read Morelarger size is a good fit. I will say that if you are curvy sizing up is probably a good idea especially if you want to wear layers underneath it. Fingers crossed for the large and also hope you get the green one in soon!

October 30, 2022

Warm and comfortable

This was definitely worth the buy. I am very happy with it.

October 30, 2022

Love, love it!`

First purchased a size M, but returned it for a Large (which is what I normally wear). Now it's just perfection. I want to wear it everyday. Weight, color, fit exactly what I was looking for. Keep up the good work Patagonia!

October 25, 2022

I'm happy with this!

I was looking for a good warm layer for autumn as a stand alone piece and a layer for colder winter months in combo with my macro puff and this fits awesomely! It's a bit tight for athletic feel and wear but has some give! I am more broad and large in the chest (40 DDs yo!) but normal in the waist (16) and this fits great. i've washed it ... Read Moretwice and tumbled dried low for 10 mins and air dried the rest, no shrinking. I love that this piece is soft and toasty.

October 23, 2022

I love this cozy comfortable

I love this cozy comfortable jacket. It is perfect for fall hikes.

October 15, 2022

This is a great weight,

This is a great weight, warm, and, a snug fit style. Love the hood. Will order a second one in another color. Wish Patagonia made more styles with hoods.

Hi Catherine, thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We have quite a few [hooded](https://www.patagonia.com/search/?q=hoody&prefn1=gender&prefv1=womens) options for the Fall 2022 season, feel free to check them out at any time.

October 10, 2022

Great sweater for fall

Very warm but lightweight which is great. Packed it in my carry on for Canada and it did not take up much space & kept me warm for several hours in ~50 degree weather. Great color and pockets. Only slight negative is that the bottom of the jacket is too narrow across my hips so I have to bunch it up to my waste to zip it.

October 10, 2022

Versatile cozy layer

I have almost every variation of the R1 fleece that has been made over the last twenty years. This is the most versatile and retains the warmth and coziness I expect from the R1 line. Its the perfect layering piece, took it one a trip to Peru and wore it in the jungle, the valley, and the city. Love it!

October 8, 2022

I'm happy with this!

As a person that runs hot year round, I need to have breathable clothing for the autumn and winter months. I can tell that this jacket will keep me plenty warm as a layer in the winter but as a stand alone piece in the spring and autumn. It's soft and feels great on the skin. I am a 40DD/size 16 (think stocky build) and although it fits snug a... Read Moreround the chest, I don't feel restrained and the overall width of the chest and arms, feel really good! I have biceps and I don't feel like the Hulk in this. I would say this is trim to body and if you want extra room, you may need to find a different jacket (does just slightly true to size). But if you are wanting something that is on the body and close, this is good. I try to purpose all of my clothing for hiking, casual wear, and lounging, and I think this hoodie will be a fave. In the end, I'm happy with it.

October 8, 2022

Great sweater

This sweater is amazing! I love how warm, light and breathable it is. Its my go to for hiking, climbing or just out and about. I wear it either by itself or as an additional layer underneath a jacket for added warmth. I highly recommend it!

September 19, 2022

Won't hold up

Would not recommend for climbing or any activity where the fabric will rub up against anything. Definitely a baggier fit than the old R1 hoodies. Didn't realize the fleece material was on the outside as well. After one day of wearing it looks like I have owned this article of clothing for years. The fabric is easily snagged and its like a magn... Read Moreet for organic debris. Every piece of plant sticks to the fabric and is hard to brush off. Would not purchase again or recommend. The old R1's are better or the techface hoody material is much better for climbing at least, but they were all out of those, so I went with this one. Not a fan.

September 18, 2022

This is a perfect cool

This is a perfect cool but not extremely cold weather jacket, with a somewhat close but comfortable fit. I love the addition of the upper small pocket and the soft texture of the fabric.

September 10, 2022

cute but not very comfortable

Main body (torso) feels narrow. Underarm of R1 used to be too big, now it's a little too tight. Sleeves are long for me as usual. Though it's really cute, I have to return.

September 7, 2022

Too long

I'm 5ft3in, weigh 118 (on a good day) and considered to have an average length torso. Normally, my Patagonia size is small but I ordered a Medium because several reviews and description state this is slim fitting and I do want to add extra layers for winter. For the most part this is soft, fits well but it is slightly big, which I expected so ... Read Morethat I can have a more room. My dismay (over and over with most Patagonia jackets and pants - and I've bought several in the past year) is with the length. This time it was ridiculous. This fleece sweater comes down below my butt! Surpassing even my Gortex jacket. I don't know if it's because I bought the medium but this does seem to be a Patagonia issue. Design team: the height of the majority of the comments on women's clothing that I've noticed across the board suggest that we are not 5'9" models. PLEASE offer lengths (inseams, sleeves and torso) more appropriate to the average woman.

Long and skinny

I have had prior R1s and they are great. I returned this because the fit was wrong for me. Sleeves really long, body fit in width but hit well below my hip. if I were to size down for sleeves and length would be too tight. Definitely built for taller thinner body types

Love the texture outside, wish

Love the texture outside, wish it was the same inside. But it makes for a great, quick option for cool mornings

September 5, 2022

My new favorite go-to layer

I love everything about this soft, light breathable layer. It is comfortable in a wide range of temps, and the fit is flattering. The only thing it might not be ideal for is bushwhacking, given that it has a wool sweater texture. Meaning it might snag and pick up a few pine needles more than a layer with a smoother finish.

September 4, 2022

Amazing mid layer

Amazing mid layer, so warm yet breathable, my total go to every day. I have owned this model in the past and worn a large. This years model was too big for me in a large so have ordered a medium

August 31, 2022

Extra warm

If you are loving for a warm mid layer, look no further, this is a sweet, warm, soft, mid layer or stand alone top. Use it on chill summer days or colder winter days.

July 31, 2022

R1 Air are the best

This is my second R1Air. Love the fit and the versatility. I wear it as a light jacket in the summer and layer with it to ski and hike in the winter.

Great layering piece for hiking or just have as an on-the-go layer to keep you cozy on the run.

Super breathable

I love this jacket. I hike close to the water where the winds can be high. So as this jackets keeps me warm, it does not make me sweat, very breathable. The small chest pocket may be small but stretchy so I can fit my glasses in it. The pockets come in handy to warm up my hands as the material is soft.

May 30, 2022

Great spring jacket

This is the perfect light weight jacket for spring. I bought one for myself and loved it so much I bought one for my daughter. The zipper pockets are roomy enough to fit your cell phone so no need for a purse when you have this jacket. The length is also nice

May 25, 2022

My favorite zip hoodie!

I bought it a little big for me on purpose so I layer it for winter and skiing. This is my 3rd one and go to over the years. Still love it!

May 15, 2022


I love the color and comfort of my full zip R1 hoodie. It is the perfect weight for wearing alone or layering. The sleeve length is a bit long, as most Patagonia jackets are for me, but the tight band keeps it comfortable. I now have two.

May 14, 2022

Comforts and light

I teach yoga on the beach and this perfect to throw on when the sun sets. Im still able to move well and its the perfect layer of warmth when it starts to feel chilly.

May 11, 2022

It's like a snuggle!

I love this jacket--it's the perfect weight--great by itself when it's cool and as an under-layer. I wear it curled up on the couch when it's cold and hiking on cool damp mornings. It's soft and light and holds your warmth but also breathes, so it's never hot. I got a large because I wanted it a little bit roomy, but the me...

May 3, 2022


Perfect layer on a chilly morning.

April 20, 2022

Very light, very warm!

I bought this with and without the hood in Small and Medium, but normally wear smalls. The medium has enough room to layer long sleeves very comfortably if you're planning to do that. This material is SO warm, especially for being so light and thin. It's definitely going to be a staple on my ski days.

April 16, 2022


This jacket is almost too small for me, but I like the snug fit because it feels quite cozy. Love the way the hood fits.

April 4, 2022

Great technical hoody!

I just got the R-1 Air Full Zip Hoody 3 days ago. I've worn it on a morning jog and a long hike. I love it, it's soft, breathable, kept me warm w/out overheating and the sleeves and length are perfect, even tho I'm tall. The teal green is true to the picture. It's TTS, I normally wear a sz. 6 (5'10"/135#) and the M fit... Read More well. I can wear a layer thicker than a t-shirt underneath and it is still comfy. Love it, wish I could justify another color!

April 2, 2022

Not sure

I like the jacket. Its thin and comfortable. I had to order up a size because its made small. It was new when I wore it for one week on vacation and there is pilling on the sleeves already. Not sure I would buy it again because the fabric is not wearing well. It washed fine.

Comfortable Breathable

This jacket fits true to size and is so comfortable, I wear it trail running, hiking, and just all the time. It keeps me warm, even with a bit of a breeze, but lets my under-layer breath while I'm being active. the hoodie was a big bonus for me for when the weather takes a turn, I can get even more warm with the close-fit zip and hood.

March 28, 2022

Magical Hoodie Jacket

This is a great hoodie jacket and I'll probably buy a second one in another color so I can occasionally wash the first one, which I wear almost every day. It's comfortable, stretchy but not clingy, and looks great. I got one size up so I could put two base layers underneath and that works well. I was wearing it in the house with only a th... Read Morein base layer underneath one day, went to get something from the car - cold wind blowing - and realized the wind wasn't getting through the hoodie jacket!

Super comfy!

I love the green color! Noticeably more trim fit than previous R1 jacket. Love the sleeve & waist length. Always love Patagonia layers!

March 17, 2022

Great for cold weather running

Thin but toasty warm material that keeps out the wind pretty well too. It is perfect to wear hiking and running as it's not bulky at all

March 16, 2022

Works Well, Looks Okay

I'm 5'3'', 130lb, 36B, and sort of apple shaped. I can fit into a Small R1 regular half zip without anything underneath, so Medium in the R1 Air Full-Zip Hoody was great for layering over a shirt. It was lightweight and warm. However, I returned it because the Black color was so faded, it looked grey. I feel like Patagonia has r...

I wish Patagonia offered more bright, vivid colors (I would kill for a neon Houdini Air) as well as neutral colors that don't look dull and faded.

March 14, 2022

Ultra comfortable

I love this hoodie. It instantly became a go-to because of its warmth, but light weight. I've found it to be a great layer for under my ski jacket, but it also looks good on its own.

March 12, 2022

great second layer!

This top is my new favorite second layer for winter backpacking and hiking. Its high collar and hood are perfect when the temps drop and the wind picks up, it is breathable when exerting oneself, and its fit is perfect. It fits over my base layers and under either a down jacket or a nordic ski jacket or another top layer. I slept in it one very chi... Read Morelly tent night recently to good affect..

This is my new go to for inside and outside, amazingly always just the right warmth for the wide range of temps in Maine late winter/early spring.

March 10, 2022


I love it. It fits close to the body. The hood is great. Also it is long and does not ride up. Excellent under a shell for snowshoeing at about 0centigrade. And under my Patagonia down sweater hoody at -15 C. Also for casual wear. I love it. You could offer it in a broader range of colours.

A gift! A successful gift ! She loves it .

February 22, 2022

Great fit, comfy except for the zipper

I'm so glad Patagonia is making XXS clothes for smaller women, unlike so many other companies. The fit is perfect for my petite frame. I find this much more comfortable than the original R1 - the waffle fleece feels more flexible and less constrictive. My only issue is the zipper. For reasons I can't understand, there is no chin protector... Read More, which makes it kind of uncomfortable when it's fully zipped. The zipper is also fairly bulky, which adds to the discomfort. Given the premium price for this otherwise great product, I'm disappointed they have left off this one important detail. I had the same issue with the regular R1, which is why I returned it. The R1 Air is a little more forgiving and so I find the zipper discomfort more tolerable, but I'm still not thrilled. Other than that, it's a great fleece.

Light as air but unbelievably warm

So happy I splurged on this. Im always cold, but this fleece keeps me warm as either an outer layer or a mid one. I tested it for the first time as an outer layer for cycling on a 35 degree day. Incredibly it breathes, allowing sweat to evaporate, while locking in warmth. Its now a regular companion for outdoor fun. I love that the hood fits under ... Read Morea helmet. The fabric has lots of flex and stretch, so its designed for movement. Its also soft and cozy, and I find myself wearing it to relax indoors, too. The only complaint is that teeny chest pocket. Also be ready to size up because this has a slim fit. Im usually a size medium in Patagonia jackets, 120 lbs, 36C, with an average build. With this fleece, the medium just fits with room only for a base layer. That works for me but others may want to take that into account and go up a size. Overall a superb fleece!

Found the Perfect Replacement

I've been looking for a replacement for a hooded Patagonia piece and this was the perfect choice. The fit is athletic - just the right length for me - and the feature that sold me was the hood that wraps around your head and neck snug and comfortably.

February 11, 2022

Very soft

I wear a size small usually. Im 5 and weight 130 and ordered the medium and it was too snug. Patagonia may want to broaden their scope of sizing to be more inclusive for the mature customers in their audience. Not everyone is fresh out of college

Great warm layer with breathability

I love this layer and have worn it skinning/ski touring for the past three weeks since I got it. The only thing I would change is that the breast pocket is small and I wish it held my phone like the R1 does! Its really only large enough for a chapstick or a small snack.

January 22, 2022


Great product. My son bought one in His size and recommended; I purchase one also. Weather in Wisconsin is extreme this time of year. I love this top for it s warmth and ease of wearing, I would like to purchase another one in a different color , but not available.

I bought this as a gift for my wife and she loves it. I discovered the Mens R1 Tech Face and I quickly began to pair it with my Nano Puff. I wanted my wife to enjoy the same set up.

Keeps me warm

I really enjoy the slim fit. Love the high zip around the neck. As well the small hood is an added comfort. Light weight although keeps me warm and thats not easy for me. I also feel very stylish in this jacket. I am in process of getting a second color because when you like something you just got to have more. Love love Patagonia!

January 8, 2022

lightweight and super warm

This fleece is incredibly warm and extremely lightweight. The fit coupled with its lightweight make it great for activity; I climb very comfortably in it during our southern winters (30s-40s and sunny usually). I visit NH in the winter and will make a great layer for those colder days. This one is soft and cozy.

December 26, 2021

A Must-have!

I want to be able to add more of these to my collection because this layer is SO awesome, but because it's so awesome, there are no more mediums and only two colors. I wear this hoody walking around town, in the house, biking, hiking, nordic skiing - as a top layer or mid-layer, depending on the temps. C'mon, Patagonia! Make more of these... Read More so we can all have a collection! :)

December 21, 2021

So Amazing!

I love my R1 and R2 layers - such great technical pieces. But this one - wow. Super soft and comfy. Super breathable and warm. Checks all the boxes. I've even found myself grabbing it on those cold nights to sleep in and don't overheat.

December 15, 2021

Warm, good layer

This is warm and comfortable. Awesome later for skiing for me. Its on the more fitted side but I knew that going in. Def recommended.

December 14, 2021

So pumped about this

After a long time deciding if I should buy this I finally pulled the trigger and I am SO excited about it. I wore it mountain biking this morning in about 35-40 degree temps with a light long sleeve under it, and I was totally warm and comfortable (even going downhill with wind). I rarely write reviews but I truly am so excited about this fleece th... Read Moreat I needed to share. I didn't overheat on the uphill and was perfectly comfortable the whole time. Sizing is a little weird, per the other reviews. I am 5'6" and 130lbs and very average build. In most things I wear a small, but I ended up getting a medium in this and I feel like it was for sure the right call. I do wear other Patagonia jackets (ski jackets) in a medium for layering. I am genuinely right between a small and a medium in this fleece as I tried them both on, but the small was a little short in my arms and pretty fitted. The medium is just ever so slightly a bit large on me, but I feel the most comfortable in it, plus it stay on the length of my arms when they extend. So pumped to have finally pulled the trigger!!

December 8, 2021

I will never take this off

When I recieved this in the mail the other day and put it on, and immediately texted my work colleagues, warning them to expect to see me in the R1 for the rest of the year. I literally don't want to take it off. It is warm, versatile, comfortable and cute. I plan to order the 1/2 zip next in a different color. I love it!

November 28, 2021

Perfectly warm

This hoody is the best for any outdoor activity! Very warm and perfect when layering in the cold!

November 22, 2021

warm and cozy

I love this garment! It is soft (softer than the R1 or R2) and a little stretchy. It's super warm for how light it is. I love the blue color. It has become my go-to for most activities where it's cool outside, and also for just hanging out.

November 11, 2021

Looks cool but not warm

I was drawn to this item because of the zig zag design. It's very breezy while windy not what I was looking for. The material also don't where well it looks funny after a week or so wearing. I will be returning it at some point.

November 10, 2021

Almost good

The appearance of this jacket is very cute. I love the fleece pattern and I love that it's fitted. But I feel it truly is a size too small. I wear an XL so there's not much to go from there. I bought the men's version for my husband and he wouldn't wear it because it's too snug. It's also a lot thinner than I expected.... Read More I should have read more reviews because others have stated it. I love the Patagonia brand and this is not a bad fleece. It looks well made but it's absolutely not what I was looking for. So if you want a thin fleece that is very fitted, this fits the bill. If not, probably look for another product. I'd definitely size up though.

November 9, 2021

Love my new jacket!

So soft and comfortable. The fit is just as described. Love the deep jade color and am so happy with my purchase!

Perfect weight

Love this! Perfect weight for wearing outside on these cool mornings on my walks (live in northeast).

favorite go to jacket for cold runs

I have this jacket in a M and L. I bought the large size so I could layer it. I have worn this jacket in 19 degree cold weather (with two layers underneath) and it keeps me warm- especially the hood - nothing like having your cheeks warm while running. I love this jacket!

I have Ben obsessed with wearing my R1! I even got my boyfriend the mens style! It would be PERFECT if it had thumb holes!

Weird pattern

I have a few R1s and R2s and this version feels like a regular fleece w a herringbone pattern. I havent put it to work yet and I probably wont Bc it feels pretty low tech.

Functional & fun!

The length is great! Ive been using this layer when biking and its perfect for 50-60 degree east coast weather. I love the option of the hood when I bike and then go for a walk. The more durable material around the wrist makes me feel more comfortable wearing it when Im biking.

73 and sunny

This is the perfect shoulder season jacket (or layer for inside when it's not cold enough to turn on the heat).

Great jacket

Overall I really like this jacket. It is very lightweight yet warm. It does seem to be pilling on the sleeves a bit already, which is why I'm not giving it 5 stars. I have an R1 pullover from 2014 that I love and I like that material better. I do wish this jacket had thumb holes. I would say this runs a bit small. I wear a small in most brands... Read More but for Patagonia jackets I wear medium. This fits loose and I can wear shirts underneath. In the past the smalls have been too tight. I am 5'8 125lbs with narrow shoulders for reference.

Great color, fits well, cozy!

Great added layer

I love this jacket. Sizing may be right in target but so many other small products run larger that this one is very fitted in comparison. Definitely need a medium in this instead of my regular small.

September 11, 2021

Very nice feel

Excited to wear this in Fall/Winter. Very very nice!

Perfect hoodie

The fit is perfect. I am 58, long torso and thin. Its soft and comfortable and warm. No complaints from me!

September 5, 2021


needed a lighter fuzzy for some higher altitude hiking (I live at sea level) and this one was perfect. squishes smaller than regular fuzzy and not as fussy as puffy. prefer the full zip for easy layering. Cut is on the slimmer side so don't be afraid to go up a size if needed.

Great fit, looks great

This is a great fleece. It's warm and looks great. I'm 5'2" 124lbs with an athletic build and purchased an x-small. It's very slim-fitting, but fits well. If you want something you can move around in more I would recommend sizing up.

Very comfortable

Love this jacket

This jacket is great because it is lightweight but a great warm layer with helpful pockets

I bought this in anticipation of a trip to Glacier and obviously the rest of life afterward. Ive been wearing it everyday since we got on a plane and its been great. I had an R1 years ago and ever since I got rid of it Ive missed it. Its a great layer that works well as an extra layer when its relatively warm and a warm layer when its cold. Very ha...

Weird Fit

The large was little tight around the hip area. So I tried the XL at the store & it was then too long. It had a weird cut. I actually like the contrast of the yellow zipper. But unfortunately, I had to return.

We're sorry this didn't work for you Maria. You might like our [Women's Capilene® Air Hoody](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-capilene-air-hoody/36505.html) as it's a warm base layer but a different styling.

In love with the Pockets

Love this piece. I've hiked to the top of 14ers to a walk around the block in it. Will also probably wear this backcouuntry skiing too because the interior pockets look like they can fit my skins! Surprised it is so form-fitting with 5 pockets (2 outside zipper, 2 inside and what I call the car key/Gu pocket on the chest). The color is fabulou...

Great layering piece

I like a contoured fit for greater warmth and better layering. Its a lightweight piece but also quite warm. Its longer and sits closer to the hips

Soft, Lightweight, and Warm

This is a great hoody. It's softer on the skin than other technical hoodies or sweatshirts, and surprisingly warm given how little it weighs. I love the high neck and the color.

This jacket is soft yet very functional. It is slim fitting. The pockets are the right size for my phone. I have received many compliments on the blue jacket.

Super Comfy!

This jacket is going to get a lot of wear time this fall & winter! It is super comfy, warm and yet breathable. I am normally a Medium in Patagonia jackets but because of the 'slim fit' description I went with a large.

Perfect weight

I was looking for an in between jacket. This is perfect. Not too heavy and not too light. Great for fall days. The fit is very flattering and I love the color!

July 20, 2021

Sharp Look Great Slim Fit

Love the slim fit for those of us with long arms. Arms could have been a little more generous but doable. Flattering fit. Smoke Blue looks very succinct. Recommend!!

Great Jacket

I really like this jacket and it's cozy. I never use a hood- and this jacket's hood is not going to get used. The hood is simply too short to gracefully be worn. But the jacket is great.

June 11, 2021


This new R1 Air sweatshirt-type jacket is now my absolute favorite garment. Here's why: I LOVE the colors, the size fits like a glove, its weight is just right, and the hood adds a very attractive component to the overall excellent aesthetics.

Warm and lightweight

Love the fit , the style and the color combo Thank you so much

Lightweight, warm

Lightweight but warm on chilly days. Fit is perfect for older active person who cannot wear the fitted apparel anymore️

May 10, 2021

Works well!

This is great for cool-weather mountain biking. It keeps me warm but is super breathable, so I don't have to stop and shed layers. It is super functional, yet feels like a cozy sweater. I'm worried about its durability. The fuzzy exterior seems highly prone to pilling and getting snagged on trail-side branches. I was originally going to... Read More wait for different colors of the regular R1 zip up hoody (I would love to see chicory red!!), since it seems more durable, but I will try this out and see.

My new go-to cozy outfit

I am loving my new R1 Air full-zip hoody. I have two regular R1 full-zips, both in size Medium, but the R1 Air felt better in a Large, so I think it seems to run a little smaller than the regular R1's. It's super cozy and warm, love the high zip neck, but it's also breathable. I will say that the lower arm appears to be pilling a lit... Read Moretle bit, but I guess I don't really mind, but that might be one down side compared to the regular R1. 5'8" 160lb and the size large is perfect.

Not warm but lightweight

It was very lightweight but not warm at all. It was soft. Also the front pocket was way too small. Nothing fit in there. May be better for someone who runs warm. I switched to the R2 regulator fleece and am happier.

April 27, 2021

Love it but runs small

I wanted to love this jacket so much. The shoulders fit perfect, but the body of it ran small. Sadly, this is going back. I'm worried about getting a Large and have the shoulders be too baggy.

April 22, 2021


I am planning on taking these on my thru hike. I am planning on hiking the Appalachian Trail. On my warm up hikes they keep me warm and toasty.

Sizing is off

Over the years Patagonia sizing has changed drastically so I really didnt know what size to purchase. I currently have an R1 hoody in size medium which fits me well. I tried on the size medium in the R1 Air Hoody and I could barely zip up the sweater. The size large fit fine, slim fitted but too tight to be comfortable during high output activities... Read More. The XL was massive compared to the large, much longer and wider at the bottom. I really dont understand this years sizing. Would I recommend? Maybe. Performance wise yes, fit wise, only if you can try on the item or be prepared to exchange sizes.

Ugh. Yellow zipper.

First off, I want to thank Patagonia for the Regen Green this season. It is likely my best color, so I get excited when I see it. I have it in the Torrentshell 3L jacket. After discovering the jacket I went searching for more Regen Green. Unfortunately I'm too late on many items. Clearly I'm not the only person who loves this color. Also ... Read Moreunfortunately, the number of Regen Green items I can wear well is limited due to Patagonia's choice of frequently adding neon yellow zippers to the jackets of this color like on the fleece above. (I'd also get rid of the black and make that a satiny green because when one looks good in green, it's best to have it around one's face.) One or two styles with that zipper are fine for those who can pull off neon colors, but for many people, neon looks awful. Had Patagonia stuck to a green zipper, we could have all enjoyed more style options in Regen Green. But alas, that yellow zipper is all over the place. For those of you who can pull off neon yellow, good on you, you lucky shoppers! I will enjoy my Torrentshell immensely and hope it isn't too many years before Patagonia brings the color back again...this time hopefully rarely paired with anything neon.

Gorgeous color, flattering fit

This is a beautiful lightweight fleece I will use as a base layer on cold days or outer layer on warm days. It is well made, the color is stunning (stellar blue) and it is fitted and stays put. I purchased the XS, which usually fits me (5'9, 120, athletic) except for the arms, which are always a little short at Patagonia. My one complaint is t... Read Morehe arms on this jacket are very short--probably 2 inches too short but still very wearable. Hood is also a tad snug but good for under a helmet.

This is very comfortable but it does shrink about 1 size when you wash and dry it. The medium was actually a little big on me but after one wash it is snug. I am 5'6 and weigh 125lb.

Wowza warm!

Wow! I could not believe how warm this fleece is, especially for its weight! I wished that I had this fleece for skiing -we had a few days in Jackson Hole where it was pretty chilly on the chairlift, but warmer skiing in the trees, so a breathable insulation layer wouldve been perfect! The fleece is super soft and feels nice on your skin! The fit... Read More is good too- form fitting enough (so not bulky), but not tight.

Workhorse Tech Fleece

I have owned the R1, R2, R3 and I traded in the R1 and R3 for the new R1 Air Hoody. I love the close fit, although with XXS the sleeves are *almost* too short. I feel like the R1 Air def wicks away moisture and feels light weight. I'm usually an XS in most Patagonia but actually recently started buying XXS for the R1 Air (and the Micro Puff Ho... Read Moreody) - It's overall a better fit for me. I am 5'1 and 95 lbs. I couldn't keep waiting for the back order on the green color so just went with Smolder Blue and it's fine! Grey but neutral and I honestly don't think about it. I wear it A LOT. Layers well over base layer tees/tanks and under Micro Puff Hoody. Definitely grab it all the time, unlike my older version of the R1 Zip Jacket circa 2011.

Great but where's the zipper garage?

My new favorite mid-layer. Warm and soft while also very wicking and breathable. Great to layer under a shell, and good pockets. But where's the zipper garage? The zipper is cold and chafing against my chin unless I'm wearing a buff. Almost perfect, save for this one flaw.

Freakin love it.

I love this thing. Ive hardly worn any other mid-layer since I got this in the mail. Insanely breathable! So cozy! And cute! I ordered a size up from my usual size, because I wanted it to fit easily over a variety of base layers. I am 6ft tall, but still the sleeves are a bit on the short side. (They are notably shorter than the sleeves on my R1 an... Read Mored Better Sweater). I have come to love the shorter length which makes it easier to layer under jackets. The body length is pretty long! Again, I sized up, but it covers a good portion of my backside. I LOVE the way it feels. I wear it just as much around the house as I do outdoors. Oh and the pockets are super big and made with a sort of shell-ish material, which works great for snow sports. Note that it has already pilled a little bit, if thats the sort of thing that bothers you, but I expect that when something is this soft and breathable and I grind it up on snowboards, granite, and dirty vans. Excellent layer! Treat yoself!

March 3, 2021

Warm and comfortable

I love this re-design of the R1. It's warmer than the standard R1 but still breathable. Great while hiking, mountaineering, climbing. One drawback is the arms are a little tight, all other aspects of the fit are spot-on.

March 3, 2021

Very Comfortable

This is so soft & comfortable. I wear it in my 60F cool home. I will wear for high elevation outdoor later but for now.....

Warm mid-layer

Purchased to use as a mid-layer while skiing. It's perfect! I stay warm but never overheat. I can't stop raving about it; my boyfriend purchased the men's version!
