The most amazing hoody you'll ever own. Now even lighter with Polartec® Power Grid® fabric.
A venerated alpine essential, the R1® Hoody is the optimal hooded midlayer for the full spectrum of mountain endeavors. Made with Polartec® Power Grid™ polyester for outstanding stretch, breathability, compressibility and durability.
R1® fabric still sets the bar for alpine efficiency and versatility. The R1 offers a high/low grid interior (Polartec® Power Grid® polyester) that stretches, traps heat, breathes freely and compresses to practically nothing. Its highly refined design features the pared-down detailing that climbers and backcountry skiers need; a snug-fitting balaclava-style hood, a minimalist deep-venting front zipper (with a soft zipper garage for next-to-skin comfort) and cuffs with discreet on-seam thumb loops and a spiral-stitch construction that lets you push up the sleeves without constricting your forearms. With off-shoulder seams for pack-wearing comfort, a long torso for layering under a harness, an exterior chest pocket and lightweight micro-grid stretch polyester at the cuffs, hem and armpits for minimal bulk, increased breathability and quicker dry times.

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 uses more sources for recycled polyester and offer it on more garments such as Capilene® baselayers, shell jackets, board shorts, and fleece. Patagonia now recycles used soda bottles, unusable manufacturing waste, and worn out garments into polyester fibers to produce much of the clothing.
Using recycled polyester lessens dependence on petroleum as a raw material source, curbs discards and reduces toxic emissions from incinerators.
