Varied densities of Polartec Thermal Pro fleece fabric make this Patagonia R1.5 Jacket an excellent four-season piece for skiing, snowboarding, climbing and backpacking. It's a design similar to mapped bike jerseys and running tops, but the Patagonia R1.5 Jacket uses a heavier fleece fabric for better wear-alone versatility as summer outerwear. The R1.5 Polartec Thermal Pro fleece fabric is highly wind resistant along key warmth areas while thinner material facilitates venting under the arms, at the center of back and along the back of the neck. If you hike, climb, or ski hard and far, this BIOMAP knit jacket is a must-have essential.

Patagonia's R1.5 Jacket is the technical fleece that bridges the gap between base layer and insulation by varying fleece densities. Frigidity, exhaustion, fear - a few of alpinism's joys. The R1.5 fabric seamlessly varies fleece densities throughout the jacket, thanks to BioMap, an innovative knitting technology (codeveloped with Malden Mills) that blends different-weight fleeces without cutting fabric or adding seams. A more-open grid structure under the arms and down the sides enhances breathability (and matches the pit zips on our hard shells); curved mesh grooves inside the elbows, on the shoulder blades and behind the neck facilitate mobility and minimize bulk; and "closed" knit in the core ensures warmth where it matters most. With stretch throughout and a brushed, wicking interior for next-to-skin comfort. The collar, cuffs, pockets and reverse-coil, center-front zip are glued, complementing the clean, minimalist design. Made in USA.
