Moosejaw Staff Pick "The Patagonia R1 Pullover is legit. It's light, comfortable, and still provides good warmth. I use it as a layering piece for the slopes, and also when I need a long sleeve on the golf course, or walking town if there's still just a little chill in the air. I sport the Narwhal Grey, but if you like a little pop there are some serious color options. Be cool, pull it over your head." BR - Moosejaw Secret Headquarters

But instead of just turning a 180 and walking back in the direction from which you came, you have to first do something like check your watch or phone or make a grand arm gesture and mutter to yourself to ensure that no one in the surrounding area thinks you're crazy by randomly switching directions on the sidewalk

Great baselayer/light fleece. Don't expect to be windproof, don't expect to handle lower than 40 degrees without a jacket. But for a light, breathable, active fleece this thing is tops. Sized a little tighter than true, judge how you'll be using it before deciding on a size. The hoody version fits a little snugger to the body if you're considering use as a baselayer.Buy one (or four!) when they go on sale.
I ordered a mens small, didn't want to order womens because I didn't want something super fitted & thought the mens would be more comfortable. I got the dark blue, very pretty color. Would buy again in more colors.
This pullover is perfect for cool weather. Obviously it will not keep you warm when temps plunge, but I am comfortable down to about sixty degrees F with this on top of a shirt. I really like the chest pocket feature; sometimes I put candy in there to eat throughout the day. Recently, I have started to wear this while biking when temps are a little too cold for short sleeves yet too warm for a long sleeved shirt. The deep zip allows for great ventilation. Additionally, the synthetic face fabric does not pick up lint like many of the other fleece pullovers I own.
The R1 is lightweight, warm, and comfortable. It fits nicely and the sleeve length is ample. I notice a remarkable difference in warmth when worn underneath my non-insulated jacket, a difference that one wouldn't think to be so drastic with such a light layer. I wouldn't mind a bit more length in the torso, and a slightly tighter fit, but the existing dimensions are nothing to complain about. I'm 6' 0", 175 lbs., and the medium fits quite nicely and remains unnoticed beneath a heavier outer layer. The typical Patagonia quality is evident, and I like the fact that they offer a number of natural colors to choose from.
Fantastic clothing item. With a synthetic t-shirt, the R1 (this thing) and a wind shell, I am comfortable walking around to about 20-30F. If I am hiking, I will use this when we stop. Just on its own it does little for wind. However, combine with a windbreaker/raincoat and you will be cooking. Found few items that surpass this for weight and heat as a layer.
I have tested this shirts ability over 100 times and is still performing like the first. Stretches if you need it to but fits nice and tight to wear under other layers. I wear it directly on my skin and get the best results. A perfect shirt for any time of the year!
Love the baffled R1 fleece - warm, layers easily, fabric looks great. Off-set seams are very welcome when backpacking. Indifferent design/fit to the collar. Forever hopeful that some day a medium-long option will be offered, having to always trade off slim fit for sleeve length is tiresome.
"Breathable light insulation for everyday use or trekking in the backcountry"
The R1 is a staple in my pack for any hiking i do as well as in my car for every day use where i need a little extra warmth. It is pretty surprising how warm it is for its weight. great layering piece that is really breathable and is totally comfortable. Overall great piece for what its made for. buy this!!
I've been wearing my new R1 pullover for the last two days. The waffled fleece on the inside is the place where it should be & it works incredibly well at keeping you warm with the weight to preformance ratio. I have another top line brand & they did the opposite, putting the fleece on the outside, go figure??? Anyway my wife saw the R1 & just had to have one. So Valentine's Day is all most here, so what a better way to get points with my wife & Moosejaw then to order my wife a small Dark Plum. They aren't cheap but they are very well made.
