Here's what other sites are saying:

After countless desperate pitches, scores of alpine summits, and miles upon miles of backcountry powder, our R1(R) fabric has compiled a worthy resume. It stretches, breathes, wicks and warms with ultimate efficiency, and the full-zip iteration offers added versatility. The finely tuned high/low interior grid polyester (Polartec(R) Power Dry(R)) squashes down to practically nothing, has a terrific feel, complements the technical fit and remains durable and warm. Our Variable Conditions Cuffs have discreet on-seam thumb loops and a spiral-stitch construction that lets you push up your sleeves without constricting your forearms. Minimalist zippers reduce bulk, while lightweight micro-grid stretch polyester at the cuffs and armpits enhances breathability and dry times. A soft, kissing-welt zipper garage at the chin gives next-to-skin comfort. Two zippered handwarmer pockets sit above the harness line, with their mesh pocket bags doubling as internal drop-in pockets, and the offset shoulder seams steer clear of pack straps.

Ask any climber, mountaineer, or backcountry skier and you'll quickly discover that Patagonia fleeces hold iconic distinction in the outdoor community--and the Men's R1 Fleece Jacket only adds to the fuel to the fire. With warm, highly breathable Regulator fleece material, the R1 is a go-to jacket for the full spectrum of mountain endeavors. This jacket breathes when you sweat during a hard climb, it stretches when you're ladder-hooking your way up a steep slope in deep powder, and it compresses easily when you're pack up for a peak-bagging mission on foot. Inside and out, the R1 exudes a sort of versatility that few midlayer jackets can match.
