The Patagonia R1 Hoody is an essential alpine layer with a minimalist design able to handle a wide variety of mountain sports and conditions. Ideal as a heavyweight base layer or a lightweight mid layer.
The Polartec Power Grid construction makes it incredibly light and breathable, as well as having a good level of stretch and durability. The fabric also benefits from being Polygiene treated so it keeps fresher for longer, perfect for long trips away. Raglan sleeves give increased mobility and off shoulder seaming keeps it comfortable under a pack and other layers. The deep centre front zip is ideal for venting and a single zipped chest pocket keeps small essentials safe.

Customer Reviews of Patagonia R1 Hoody (Winter 18)
I was unsure of how this would be when I bought it. Having worn it a few times I will admit it's just about right for regulating body temperature. When I'm wearing it I seems to be just right. It does seem to be a Goldilocks in the fleece world. I guess that's why it's got so many good reviews as the go to fleece layer.To be honest I can't really complain about it.
Yes, it's expensive but sometimes quality is worth the price you pay.I'd rather have 1 item that is expensive & right than 10 that are not, something to which I have learned a lesson with myself.
As to facewest. Reliable & quick delivery. I have already used them more than once.
Best hoody I ever head! Warm and breathable through squared polartec blocs on the inside. Ideal pocket for mobile on chest. Tight fitting hoody great for under helmet. I regularly cycle to work in the winter and this is an ideal 2nd layer.
Also great for ski touring.
Will probably buy another one...
