After more than 15 years of cranking, Patagonia's R1 fabric still sets the bar for alpine efficiency. Its high/low grid interior (Polartec Power Grid polyester) is key to the hoody's versatility, and the highly refined fabric -- the lightest and most breathable iteration ever -- remains exclusive to Patagonia. It stretches, traps heat and compresses to practically nothing, with the pared-down but versatile features climbers and backcountry skiers need: a snug-fitting balaclava-style hood, a minimalist deep-venting front zipper with a soft zipper garage that keeps your chin comfy, and a Variable Conditions Cuff with discreet on-seam thumb holes and a spiral-stitch construction so you can push up the sleeves with no ensuing forearm pump. With off-shoulder seams for pack-wearing comfort, a long torso for layering under a harness, an exterior chest pocket and Polygiene permanent odor control.
