Sad

I've had Patagonia clothes since 1985 and loved the way it took a beating and came through like a well made piece of clothing. Lately though I've noticed that they definitely have changed their sizing pattern. I wear an XL and this one was tight and the sleeves were huge. So see if it was me, I slipped on the other 2 Marsupial pullovers that I've picked up from a couple of years ago and they fit fine. (FWIW, I've also noticed this on a Patagonia jacket I got this year from Backcountry and sent that back as well...)
The other thing I noticed was the absence of the little zipper pocket in the Kangaroo pouch as well as the rubber tip on the zipper. Maybe I'm nitpicking, but, the price didn't go down, the fit was lousy and I rather spend the extra money and get an Arc'teryx Apache pullover.

This is what happens when you source from China supplier who has moved his sweat shops to Vietnam, Malaysia, and Laos.
