Done in R1 Competition


We're stoked to launch one of Patagonia's staples in South Africa: the R1 midlayer! What's more exciting, this year is the 20th anniversary of the R1. 

As an ode to the R1, Nico Favresse and Sean Villanueva O’Driscoll made a music video about all the wild adventures, first ascents, and classic moments that have been Done in R1. 



Sing & record your version of the R1 song in the great outdoors - on the mountain, on a rooftop, at a braai, at the crag, in your garden - as long as it’s outside.

Post your R1 song on Instagram (story or permanent post) using the hashtag #DoneInAnR1 and tagging @Gone_Outdoor in the post - before midnight on Sunday 27 October 2019. 

The R1 Song Lyrics are in the YouTube Video's comments: 


We'll be choosing the op song and the singer(s) of the best song take home an R1 of your choice. If you're a team of two, both of you get an R1. Yewwww!
