Warm and comfortable.
I have an R1 (size L) bought many years ago. I wear it in the winter to layer and it has held up well. Recently I bought a new R1 (size M) and am using it for the same purpose as the old R1. Both are warm and well made. Both fit, but the recent R1 (M) is a little small and I like the baggier fit better. I am 5ft8in and weigh 174lbs.
Great casual jacket
I work in an office thats usually a bit cold, most people either end up with their outside heavier jacket on or toughing it out, but to be honest, it just looks silly. I ended up buying a cheap fleece from some no name brand, that while it kept me at the perfect temperature, ended up looking ratty and unprofessional. This jacket has been great for ... Read Moreeveryday wear around the office, not to mention the few compliments I got on it, too.
Perfect for long term traveling
This sweater packs small while providing a good amount of warmth! It's very nicely fitted and makes me feel great so if you are on the thiccer side, you might want to reconsider. It isn't perfect though, the arms run a bit long. Would be a perfect sweater to have once they fix the arm's length issue.

Thank you for your feedback, Felix. We're sorry to hear that the arm length was too long! If you need garment measurements in the future to ensure a perfect fit, please reach out to our [customer service team](https://help.patagonia.com/s/?_gl=1*1uwbkpk*_ga*MTE3MzgxOTU4OS4xNjQ3NTMxMTc0*_ga_1SYPSJZYJ5*MTY3ODI4NzY2OS42MTkuMS4xNjc4MjkwMjYwLjAuMC4w).
As noted, I'm 6 ft
As noted, I'm 6 ft tall with long arms. I know that in recent years the sleeves on most garment seem to run a bit long. On this item, the sleeves were 2 inches too long. Just Saying! You did ask... Cheers, TM PS: I'll still wear it after I have the sleeves shortened.
Good casual jacket, decent fit
Comfy, casual jacket, that's pretty light weight. Great for office work or running around town. You'll want something else if you think you'll see any weather. I have oddly wide shoulders and a trim waist so finding a jacket that fits is always a challenge, but the stretch of the material makes this one work for me. It is more of an ... Read Moreathletic cut as well so there isn't a bunch of extra space around the mid section.
Nice feeling but use case too specific
The texture and feel of this were nice but the Large for me wasn't quite enough. I think this is simply designed for a very specific use case which was not for me. Ultimately I'm not sure what this sweater's particular use case is... It's a little light for even slightly cool weather, and when I tried to wear it to work it w...

Form Fit and Warm
I bought this in both a small and a medium. I use the small as a layering piece. Its pretty trim on me. The medium I use like a zip up sweater for work over a dress shirt. It has a nice finish thats not overly technical. Both have a nice stretch, are cut trim, and are very cozy. The medium is a little long in the arms and waist for me but Im kind o...

Nice soft material like the jersey material. Problem is its pretty thin and don't think it'll really keep you warm if its 50F or below. Would make a good jacket to wear if running or going to the gym. Jacket size runs small. I normally wear a size Small for the Patagonia Better sweater fleece so I ordered small here but it was too tight.... Read More Would probably size one up if planning to purchase this jacket.
Cardigan alternative for husband
I got this in "salt grey" for my husband, who needed a replacement for his old zip cardigan sweaters. He loves it, wears it constantly, at work and on the weekends. It is thinner and lighter than a "real" jacket, but just right as a sweater alternative. Holds up great through a lot of wear! The fabric seems nice and somewhat d... Read Moreelicate (like a soft smooth scuba material) so he doesn't risk wearing it for heavy outdoor work or woodsy hikes. Fit is perfect for his tall-ish slim but athletic body type, especially the good torso length, size M, 6' tall. Only gripe is the zipper: it sometimes snags, maybe needs a quality upgrade?
I'm not a large person - 5'10', 170 lbs. The medium was too small and the large was a little too roomy. But both sizes had sleeves that were much too form fitting for a jacket. It was uncomfortable to wear a long sleeve shirt under the jacket. I returned both sizes.

Hi Don, we're very sorry to hear that the sizing for the R1 Daily Jacket didn't work out. Please know that we value your feedback and we'll be sure to keep this in mind for future iterations.
Reminds me of my old capaline jacket
The jacket is great for taking the bite out of a cold morning. The Micro D provides more bulk than the Capaline lining - so the jacket is a little more bulky around the waist line. The pockets are all zippered and functional. I will enjoy this piece for years to come.
Poor quality zipper. Snagged on
Poor quality zipper. Snagged on top, unable to unzip as it got caught at first zip down. When zipping up, doesn't catch easily.

Hi Violetta, we're sorry to hear about the trouble with your zipper sticking. We'd be happy to help out with a [warranty return or free repair](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html). We'll reach out to you privately with further assistance.

Just what I was looking for
I tossed my new Men's R1® Daily Jacket into my carry-on before I hopped a flight for LAX. I thought it was probably overkill since my App says it'll be 74 degrees in Marina del Rey. I immediately pulled that soft sweatshirt-like layer on in the increasingly cool terminal and zippered it as the aircraft doors shut and flight attendants wai... Read Moreted on shivering passengers. I was comfortable; not only is it fairly form fitting, it was just the right amount of lightweight warmth. When we arrived, our hosts remarked how cool it can feel along the water. The truth is that the weather in those beach communities is ridiculously moderate with about six degrees of variance through the day. So how did my layer do? Appearance? I mean you're in the LuLu Lemon capital of SoCal and all of the fit young people who look like they just came from Central Casting probably did. So, yes, it fit well and provided just the proper amount of Pattagucci to hold its own strolling Albert Kinney. The tailoring seems solid and my medium, six foot frame seems to like the sizing. The tag promises that the workers who made this in a far-oft land were treated well. It ended up being the perfect extra garment and addition to my beach bag. It would easily give Vuori a jog for its money. Now, if all these smart design folks could get their arms around microfiber...
Nice lightweight jacket
I'm 6"1" 180lbs. 32" waist. Bought a size Large. This jacket is long enough in the torso and sleeves, but I wouldn't consider this a true slim fit.

Sleeves are too long
I looked at this product at your store in Dublin, Ireland, liked it and would have purchased but the sleeves are way too long compared to the body size. I have a number of the old style R1 fleece tops (please bring them back!) and do not have this problem with them. Any reason why the sleeves are very long?
Nice jacket, fits me perfect at 6'1" and 183lbs. It is a slim fit as indicated but still has sufficient room if wearing a tee shirt. As others have mentioned the fabric does feel a bit delicate for hiking type activity. I would prefer it to be a bit more durable on the outside but its great for casual wear and I'll probably wear it o...

A warm hug
I've been buying Patagonia fleece for over 30 years, from the technical to the casual. This ranks among my all-time favorites. For its intended use in cool conditions, it's without peer and checks every key box: comfort, warmth, fit, style and feature set including essential chest pocket. I'm not usually one for smooth faced fleece, ... Read Morebut I got over that immediately once I wore it and besides, its slides effortlessly under another jacket, serving equally as a midlayer on cold days or an outer layer in milder conditions. And FINALLY, a Patagonia slim fit garment that isn't restrictive and uncomfortable in the arm holes, upper back and shoulders - they've nailed it with this one! I love the smolder blue color with contrasting gray trim. I love this jacket so much I sold my Better Sweater and Synchilla fleece jackets into Worn Wear because I wasn't wearing them anymore. Enough said. Awesome fleece!
Nice, light, warm up jacket.
The R1 has been my go to for 50ish degree days when I need to keep the cold at bay. It is moisture wicking which is nice. The fit is a little slimmer than Id like but that just keeps me warm. Plenty of pockets and the collar is nice and close when fully zipped.
Im 64 and 185lbs. Most anything size large from Patagonia fits me perfectly and this did not disappoint. This is super nice jacket. Its definitely more of a spring, summer, or fall weight. I tend to wear it around the house over a T-Shirt as opposed to a jacket. The material is super soft and smooth. You wont be disappointed.
I wear this every day
The fit and look are perfect for casual wear -- and since COVID I'm not dressing up much, so I wear this pretty much every day. Though as another commenter said, it's thin and so seams and contours can show through. But it's so perfect for "winter" in LA, worn over a Patagonia cool merino long sleeve.
A good looking jacket for daliy activity
A fan of the R1 series so bought this new R1 daily in Smoulder Blue. First impression is that the look is more everyday as opposed to outdoorsy. The material feels very smooth and has this sleek look to it. The material is also very stretchy so M size fits me well, and in comparision size M on the old R1 runs slightly small for me. I can see this g... Read Morearment can serve multiple purposes even in the urban environment. On the technical side, the material is thinner than the Polartec of tradditional R1. So I'd say it is more compact and less warmer than the R1. Lastly, a bit of suggestion for improvement regarding the long front zipper. It is made of plastic and can run a little coarse at the beginning, especailly in my case the insertion pin is a little askew. The way how the bottom part of zipper tapes is sewed into the garment can be also done more securely. Overall, a versatile, good looking slim fit jacket that is very comfortable to wear.
Great fit, good looking
I really like the fit and look of this zip up - the slim fit works well as a layer but is sharp enough to hold up on its own. Even with the close fit, it doesnt bind across the shoulders - very good for climbing and hiking. My favorite Patagonia purchase of the last few years.
Fabric is too light. Has no body.

Hi Gerald! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear about the disappointment with the jacket. Your feedback is truly appreciated and we'll pass this along to our design team. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Soft but not doe everyone
I love that this is soft, but I think this is better as a performance gear than everyday jacket. Due to the slim cut and material, you will see the outline of the shirt worn underneath. The Better Sweater jacket will probably be better for what I need.
