Patagonia R1 TechFace Pullover

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Our new R1(R) TechFace Pullover relies on its pared-down alpine attributes: It's tough on the outside, soft where it counts and breathable throughout. The stretchy, lightweight double-weave fabric (partially recycled polyester, with spandex) offers significantly more wind resistance and durability than our traditional R1(R), with smoother layering. A low-profile center-front zipper helps dump heat, the external zippered left-chest pocket doubles as a self-stuff sack (with carabiner clip-in loop) and sleek, low-bulk, snag-resistant stretch-knit cuffs push-up easily. With a DWR (durable water repellent) finish to shed excess moisture.

With the R1 TechFace Fleece Pullover, Patagonia took the tried and true performance of its classic R1 Pullover and threw on a durable outer face for added versatility and weather resistance. The result is an always-dependable outdoor piece that works as both a midlayer and a stand-alone piece on cooler fall and spring days. The inner fleece lining boasts the same stretch and breathability as the classic R1, but now features a water-resistant outer shell that'll also help resist abrasion on multi-pitch climbs and rocky summit scrambles. Thumbhole loops help keep your sleeves in place during activity, and make layering easier when you want to throw a shell on over your fleece during more extreme weather. You've got a deep chest pocket for efficient ventilation when you're really working up a sweat, and a single chest pocket that doubles as a tuck-away stuff sack when the chill of your early-morning start wears off and warm temperatures abound.
