Patagonia Women’s R1® Full-Zip Jacket

Patagonia has made a great fleece jacket with their R1® Full-Zip Jacket.  It’s warm, light weight and not bulky. I take this jacket with me whether I’m climbing a mountain, swinging my tools into a frozen waterfall or just doing a cool fall day hike.  I love how light weight this jacket was for a fleece, but still was very warm.   From Patagonia’s website:

The high/low interior grid polyester enhances compressibility, airflow, insulation and dry time, and the jersey microfiber face allows smooth layering.

Here are the specs on this item:

  • Versatile R1 fleece provides excellent stretch, warmth, wicking and breathability in a variety of temperatures
