Pros Water and wind resistant, breathable, stylishPerfect fit for most active uses, ideal weight for many conditions, great hood designUltra breathable, very comfortableGreat warmth for the weight, excellent fit, good hood, affordableStylish, comfortable, great range of motion
Cons Baggy fit doesn't work well as a mid layerNot as stylish as some other fleeces for around town, not as warm for its weight as some high-loft modelsNot very warmZipper sticks, not as breathable as the R1Not a very good warmth-to-weight ratio
Bottom Line This isn't your typical fleece midlayer and is sized to be worn on top of other layers.The R1 Hoody is a perfect layering piece that regulates body temperature so well you'll leave it on from summit to sleeping bag and everywhere in between.This jacket is your best choice for high exertion activities in the winter.This jacket performs almost as well as our Editors' Choice and is more affordable.This is a stylish, comfortable fleece for strenuous activity and around town wear, but a little heavy for long backcountry trips.
