- Awesome layer! (Review by Alex)
I love the transition hoody! It is the perfect weight - warm but light. Nice thumb holes, and the hood is perfect under a helmet. I wear it as a base layer when I'm skiing, as an outer layer when running..etc. I actually never want to take it off. I may buy it in another color I like it so much.

- sweet surprise (Review by adventure.chick)
I never thought that I would be this excited for an insulating layer. The previous reviewer is spot on: The Transisition is better than an R1! I love the flattering cut and comfort of this piece. In addition to using it as a layer beneath a down jacket, I also wear it as an outer layer (over a wool tank and sports bra) while doing vigorous aerobic activity (hiking to ice climbs, fat biking) in cold conditions (20-25F) I stay warm and dry. I would certainly recommend the Transition Hoody.

- Take That, R1! (Review by AlpineRodeo)
What’s better than a Patagonia R1? The OR Transition hoody! It’s a grid fleece just like the standard R1, but the perfect weight and cut (Patagonia has been more recently making their lines more roomy/baggy/bulky at the waist—unnecessarily so). This thing is so snuggley, and it’s not too warm to wear while doing lots of cardio-related activities. I wore it on The Nose of El Capitan, S facing and direct sun. It blocked the sun, helped cut a bit of the wind, and allowed me to jug and haul 31 pitches without getting sweaty. And the Transition was there for me when I needed a bit of warmth too! I can’t wait to take this piece ski touring this winter!
