Patagonia Men's R1® TechFace Hoody
The TechFace Hoody maintains fleece-like comfort while extending itself into scrappy days on rock, snow and ice. The stretchy, lightweight double-weave fabric offers significantly more wind resistance and durability than our traditional R1®

I love this highly versatile layer. I use it as a baselayer on colder climbs and also as a mid layer on Rainier and other summer climbs. It's durable too, I got my first R1 for a Denali climb 5 years ago and it is still in my kit today.
Like an R1® with extra grit, our new TechFace Hoody maintains fleece-like comfort while extending itself into scrappy days on rock, snow and ice. The stretchy, lightweight double-weave fabric (partially recycled polyester, with spandex) offers significantly more wind resistance and durability than our traditional R1® and its articulated pattern further encourages a full range of mountain mobility. An alpine-helmet-compatible, adjustable hood with laminated visor provides coverage and visibility through shoulder-season squalls. Detailing includes a pair of high, zippered handwarmer pockets (with venting mesh), an external zippered left-chest pocket, and sleek, low-bulk stretch-knit cuffs. The adjustable hem snugs via cords routed through the hand pockets, and the DWR (durable water repellent) finish sheds excess moisture.
