You'll want to keep a pair of these in your pack, one in your gear bag, and another in your glove box so you truly never leave home without them.
A versatile midweight layering piece ideal for all angling activities.
R1® tops work so well under our fishing jackets, we decided to extend the experience downward. We found that lightweight fleece pants, made from the same comfy, stretchy 6.8-oz polyester/spandex fabric, work and feel just as well under waders and rain pants. In fact, the R1 Pants’ high-wick/low-bulk performance is the perfect combination whenever rigorous wading or extended hikes come into play. Two front pockets hold keys and cash. Elastic waist with drawcord adjustment minimizes bulk and keeps the moon at bay. Fabric is bluesign® approved. Inseam (size M) is 32".
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.
