R1 Hoody

rated 4 of 5 stars The R1 Hoody works better as a base-layer than a mid-layer. It has a good combination of warmth and ventilation. Polygiene odor control really works. Touted as a mid-layer, I found the Patagonia R1 Hoody to work much better for me as a first layer or strictly worn by itself. The Polartec Power grid fabric that provides both the hoody's warmth and ventilation also makes it difficult to put on over a first layer. The waffle patterned fabric would get hung up on my t-shirt regardless of the t-shirts… Full review

Grade VI Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars I've had mine for over 10 years and it has been my go-to jacket for hiking, snow, and the eternal Northwest rain. It is minimalist and yet has held up in durability all this time. I have a theory that its production was ended because it was just too good, no return customers when you sell them the perfect and everlasting product!  Full review

Nano-Air Hoody

rated 4 of 5 stars The Nano-Air Hoody is a mid-weight insulating layer than can reach across a wider than normal range of temperature and weather conditions. It is relatively unusual in that the synthetic insulation is encased in a soft, stretchy nylon shell that is more stretchy and much more permeable to air than a typical soft shell. Its ability to wick moisture away and 'wear dry' quickly is exceptional for a layer with its insulting properties. Weaknesses include somewhat shapeless pockets that sag when filled… Full review

Ultralight Down Hoody

rated 3 of 5 stars Overall this is a decent jacket, but it's not as warm as some other jackets out there. The Ultralight is a sized down alternative to the classic Down Sweater. Coming in at just under 300 grams it's one of the lightest weight insulation pieces on the market. I've had mine for over two years now, and it's seen its fair share of use.   The water resistance is good, and it takes an impressive beating for a ultralight down jacket. It also packs down to about the size and shape of a 1L Nalgene, which… Full review

R1 Hoody

rated 3 of 5 stars Great looking and delivers the goods when active, but has limited applications. Like most everyone here I try to do as much research as I can before spending a few bucks on a technical piece of gear. I did that with the Pat. R1 and kept reading about how it's a "favorite" and serves a lot of functions. Unfortunately, my experience has been different. It still comes along with me on most trips, but I think I could have spent my money better. The R1 is very well made. The fit is right on the money… Full review
