Patagonia Men's R1® Daily Jacket

True To Size
January 16, 2023

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?

too tight

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.

Product review

Can't really wear it when it's around 40-60 defF but it would be great for most of the California weathers (I just got it in December 2022). Its size was not perfectly fit to my size but it's good enough (92%). I really like the product.

December 12, 2022

Super comfortable

This is a great jacket. I'm 6'2", 200 lbs and bought a large. It very comfortable and looks great. It also includes 2 drop pockets inside for additional storage.

I was on the fence at first because of the price and whether or not the fit would be great or not It exceeded my expectations. the quality is top notch and feels so comfy. I am 29 yrs old, 173 pounds, 32-33 waist, semi-athletic build and the M size is beyond perfect Sleeve length is perfection and the material is so soft and stretchy the back h...

This is very versatile jacket,

This is very versatile jacket, good at blocking wind and keeping me warm. I own two of them and look forward to more lively colors (red, orange, light green etc...)

Good buy!

Nice jacket. Used for everyday where, and layering when heading out. True to size for my height - I'm a shade over 6ft. But needed the XL for the sleeve length, which run long, but the L would have been too small in the body. Would recommend.

My new favorite jacket

I love it. I wear it constantly in my work from home basement office. I would wear it daily if people didn't tease me.

Wonderful Jacket!

Great jacket for all occasions. Easy to grab and wear. One of the favorites in my closet now!

Very comfortable, perfect for a early fall weather hiking.

This is a great everyday

This is a great everyday jacket. Soft and comfortable. Highly recommend

Very versatile jacket that is also very good looking

I like the fact that it is well fitted and not loose. I would welcome some other colors, I have the black and the dark grey. The weight of the fabric is excellent and the wind protection also great.

September 13, 2022

Everything great but the fit

Really wanted to like this jacket. The sleeve and jacket length are great, but the fit in the torso is just too narrow if you have an athletic build. Had to return unfortunately.

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. The jacket has too much excess material on the back that balloons out. I took it to a tailor and had it tapered for a few bucks. Overall, very happy with this jacket as it can b...

I have worn my full zip-up Black R-1 for 10+ years and love it. It is my daily, keep warm & comfortable jacket for 3+ seasons and has been with me at all times when hiking, under-jacket liner riding motorcycle in cool weather, bicycling and boating.

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?

Cozy jacket

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... Read Moren the golf course and biking around town. still going with 5 stars the fit, warmth (for a base layer) and comfort are just too good and that is primarily what I bought it for.

Super stylish and sporty looking!

This daily jacket became my new found everyday wear in East coast, already a fan and bought second one in different color.

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.

March 12, 2022


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.

Winter running gear must have!

The Patagonia Men's R1 Daily Jacket is my go to running jacket when temps drop below 30. Room to move and not heavy so it wont weigh you down. Fits nice and clean, close cut and comfortable for miles.

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.

Daily Jacket

Perfect fit. Quality material and workmanship.

December 30, 2021

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.

Perfect fit

Nice base layer for 50-degree weather. Not thick enough for colder temps, but very happy with it as is.

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.
