The Patagonia R1 Hoody is a long time favorite among BPL staff and members - and returns here as Bob's primary torso layer.
I chose this perennial BPL favorite for Bob. This extremely versatile garment features Patagonia's highly breathable R1 fabric, long sleeves and torso to keep you covered in heavy exertion, thumb loops, and a snug hood. The very deep zipper gives you good temperature control, and the zipper is offset to keep it off your chin when zippered up. The R1 hoody has been in and out of production since 2002, but Patagonia tells us it is back now for the forseeable future. Last year it was offered only in black. In 2008 it will also be available in Aegean Blue.
