Best Fleece Jackets of 2022 - GearLab
Patagonia's R1 series has been a longtime favorite of our testers. Emulated by many, the grid fleece technology has become a staple in most people's active cold-weather layering system.

I find myself using the r1 chest pocket + thumb loops for warmth than the melly kangaroo pocket. However, the melly hood scoop with a cinch is much warmer than when I am fully covered in the r1. ​. The r1 air chest pocket keeps snacks warm when it’s cold and discourages putting in heavy items that will make you have a saggy, heavy chest.
Which Arc'teryx Fleece is right for me? (Hiking)
Patagonia R1 hoody is simply incredible. Definitely try one. I like my Arc Fortrez but the Pat R1 hoody deserves its rep.

Recommend a zip up hoodie?
Patagonia R1 full zip hoodie. It might look too much like a jacket for you, but it is a fantastic one bag item. Warm, but not hot. Great for all activities. Looks sharp even when dressing up a bit. Water resistant and 3 zipper pockets.
What onebag items WEREN'T worth it for you
Great layering piece, lightweight, tons of pockets. Really solid for travel days in more temperate climates.

Advice for midlayers and softshells?
If youre really trying to keep it down to the minimum for those activities then the Patagonia r1, gamma Lt hoody is a versatile combo that covers a lot of them. For pants, I really can't think of anything that would be appropriate for skiing that I would want to run in. Don't think the Trino sl is up to skiing, but I don't have direct experience with those pants.
