Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Fabric: R1 DWR
Price Paid: $95

Very well designed, made in the U.S., grid fleece on the inside is very warm but breathes and dries well. The outside is very much a smooth material almost a semi-softshell and the DWR beads like nobody's business.

Only CONCERN is that it is a very athletic fit! It fits tightly around the waist area which is great for a technical piece of kit but may prevent you from wearing it out in public as it looks bike jersey fittish.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Patagonia's Men's R1 Granular Jacket is a technical, lightweight fleece jacket with a smooth face for wind resistance and durability. Part insulation and part shell, the R1 Granular resists weather and abrasion while moving moisture and trapping warmth. A smooth Hardface outer fabric blocks wind and snow and adds durability, while the time-honored R1 internal grid fabric wicks and insulates. Layers slide effortlessly over the jacket top when the going gets harsh; offset shoulder seams maintain comfort with a pack or gear sling; and the invisible-zipper handwarmer pockets rest above a harness. Other details include a two-way, reverse-coil front zipper, articulated elbows, anatomically shaped cuffs and a glued-in left bicep pocket. Contoured fit. Imported.

Smooth on the outside, this jacket can easily be layered under your favorite shell to keep you outside. A contoured cut accommodates base-layers and lets you wear this functional jacket every time you head outdoors.
