A venerated alpine essential, the Patagonia R1 Hoody Fleece Pullover Jacket remains the optimal hooded midlayer for the full spectrum of mountain endeavors—now made with lighter and more breathable Polartec® Power Grid™ for outstanding stretch, compressibility and durability. Fabric is bluesign® approved.
More than 15 years and cranking, and Patagonia's R1® fabric still sets the bar for alpine efficiency, and their R1 Hoody's legendary versatility begins there: the high/low grid interior (Polartec® Power Grid™ polyester) has been redesigned exclusively for Patagonia, so it's even lighter and more breathable. It stretches, traps heat and compresses to practically nothing, with the pared-down but versatile design features climbers and backcountry skiers need: a snug-fitting balaclava-style hood, a minimalist deep-venting front zipper with a soft zipper garage that keeps your chin comfy, and a Variable Conditions Cuff with discreet on-seam thumb loops and a spiral-stitch construction so you can push up the sleeves with no ensuing forearm pump. With off-shoulder seams for pack-wearing comfort, a long torso for layering under a harness, an exterior chest pocket and Polygiene® permanent odor control. Fabric is bluesign® approved.

Patagonia Men's R1 Hoody - Outdoor Gear Lab's Top Pick Winner
"Our testers loved using the Patagonia R1 Hoody. We put this fleece through the wringer, from the desert floors of Las Vegas to the surrounding peaks – hiking, climbing, running and even re-bolting alpine sport routes. It did not disappoint. This fleece is an amazing mid- or outer layer, and where it really shines is in the balance between warmth and breathability when being active in cold environments. The grid-style fleece takes your moisture away, leaving you dry and warm. The zipper drops all the way down to the navel, which lets you open it way up when hiking hard. The balaclava-style hood acts as saran wrap for your head, and fits well under a ski, bike or climbing helmet. Overall, the R1 is a technical masterpiece that should be in everyone's outdoor layering wardrobe, and as such we've given it our Top Pick for Breathability award. We did have one small durability issue: we used this fleece while climbing a lot and noticed that the material pilled at the cuffs. Outdoor adventures are hard on our gear, though, and we can't expect it to stay nice and pristine forever. If you are looking for a warmer layer, our Editors' Choice winner, the Patagonia R3 Hoody, was our favorite fleece of all, and if saving dollars is a concern, then check out the Marmot Reactor jacket, our Best Buy winner."
Outdoor Gear Lab, December, 2015
In 1993, Patagonia adopted fleece into their product line made from post consumer recycled (PCR) plastic soda bottles. They were the first outdoor clothing manufacturer to do so. PCR® clothing was a positive step towards a more sustainable system – one that uses fewer resources, discards less and better protects people’s health.
Today, Patagonia is able to utilize more sources for recycled polyester and offer it on more garments such as Capilene® baselayers, shell jackets, board shorts, and fleece. They now recycle used soda bottles, unusable manufacturing waste, and worn out garments (including their own) into polyester fibers to produce many of their clothes.
Using recycled polyester lessens our dependence on petroleum as a raw material source, curbs discards and reduces toxic emissions from incinerators.
Bluesign Approved Fabric
Patagonia has worked with Bluesign Technologies since 2000 to evaluate and reduce resource consumption in their materials supply chain, and to assist them with managing the chemicals, dyes and finishes used in the process. Bluesign Technologies, based in Switzerland, works at each step in the textile supply chain to approve chemicals, processes, materials, and products that are safe for the environment, safe for workers, and safe for the end customers. In 2007, Patagonia became the first brand to officially join the network of bluesign® system partners. Any fabric you see that’s bluesign® approved offers the highest level of consumer safety by employing methods and materials in their manufacture that conserve resources and minimize impacts on people and the environment.
Regulator® fleece insulation provides phenomenal compressibility, light weight warmth, and moisture transport, whether used alone or as part of a layering system. The lofted hollow-core fibers of Regulator fleece insulation conserve body heat while allowing body moisture to wick uninhibited. They’re also lightweight and highly compressible for packing. Regulator Fleece Insulation provides exceptional breathability to keep you dry on the inside and while Regulator fleece provides the same amount of warmth as a much bulkier fleece, it does so with lighter, more compressible materials. Since you stay both dryer and warmer, you’re able to maintain your comfort over a wide temperature range, which results in fewer layering changes and a lighter, less bulky pack.
