Hey guys, i've been searching for a sweet deal on an r1 to no avail. However the other day I was snowboarding and dipped into the resorts ski shop and saw that they had under armour grid products that looked very very similar to a patty r1, for much cheaper. As far as i can tell, patagonia r1 is just polartec grid fleece (Power Dry), with the fuzzy side against your body. I think underarmour has their own house version of the same fabric which they are using in this pullover
Click on the 3rd or 4th image, and zoom in on the neckline, you'll see its a similar grid fleece.
Anyone have any experience with UA's grid material?
Also, curious to know about their "armour stretch" material...looks like powerstretch
