A trusted thermal layering piece ideal for climbing and ski touring, with alpine-specific features, such as a balaclava hood, and a slim fit with a long hem to stay tucked under a harness or pants.
After nearly 20 years of cranking, our R1® fabric remains a benchmark for alpine efficiency—and this season we’ve refocused the Pullover Hoody for the technical core user. Its high/low grid interior (Polartec® Power Grid™ polyester) is key to the hoody’s versatility—it’s the lightest and most breathable iteration ever, and still exclusive to Patagonia. It stretches, traps heat and compresses down to practically nothing. For higher-output use and enhanced mobility, we’ve incorporated lighter weight, super stretchy grid fabric along the side panels, in the snug-fitting balaclava-style hood and at harness line. A minimalist, deep-venting front zipper allows for further temperature regulation, with a soft zipper garage to keep your chin comfy, while the off-shoulder seams sit comfortably under your pack straps. The sleeves push up easily when it’s hot, but have discreet on-seam thumb holes for added warmth when it’s cold. The torso is now 1" longer for layering under a harness. With an exterior left-chest pocket and Polygiene® permanent odor control.
Patagonia's R1 Pullover Hoody is stripped down version of the classic R1 Hoody. It's a great mid layer and technical fleece capable of performing across a wide variety of activities. The Polartec Power Grid feels strange if you're not used to it but it soon becomes comfortable. The performance of the Power Grid shows in its ability to provide a high level of breathability without sacrificing warmth. It is light and stretchy making the R1 easy to pull on or stuff into your pack whenever you need to.
The longer torso length means it can stay tucked into a harness and covers more of your body. There is a single chest product and elasticated hem and wrist cuffs.This fleece works well no matter what activities you are doing which is a massive plus and means you will keep digging this one out and using it for everything from hill walking to climbing, skiing to just going to the pub in.
The R1 Pullover is sewn in a fair trade certified facility from 93% recycled fabric.
