Description

Sweater looks—fleece feel.

You want the heat-trapping power of fleece, but you don’t want to look like a fuzzy bunny. The Men’s Patagonia 1/4-Zip Better Sweater has a sweater-knit exterior for a clean, sharp look and a fleecy, heat-holding interior. It is warm enough to wear as a jacket in cool weather, or (when things get really chilly) wear it under a shell as an insulating mid-layer. Raglan sleeves lend to the athletic aesthetic and keep you comfortable if you’re slinging a pack.

New cut is larger than prior year's

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large

This year's cut is larger than prior years. I have one in grey that I love, and ordered a second one in blue, but the fit is not the same. I would order one size down next time.

Excellent

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Comfy, classy, extremely warm. I live in Chicago and this shirt helped me survive the Polar Vortex. I have to wait for the train every morning, even on the -18 degree work days. I wore this shirt over my dress shirt nearly work day and it worked marvelously. It's held up pretty well too considering I wore it 5x a week for 3 months of Polar Vortex cold. I've wore this shirt over my dress shirt, without a jacket, and I was warm even in 20 degree weather. I mean, just to put gas in the car, I wouldn't go sledding or shovel snow with it w/o a jacket. Great shirt though. In fact, this site asked me to review this shirt and I realized I'm actually wearing it now!

This is one of my favorite pieces from Patagonia. I currently own two of them, orange and grey, and I am always tempted to buy more! They are uber warm, soft, and comfortable. Not to mention how great they look! It's no wonder other brands such as merrel and eddie bauer have been trying to copy it.

Warm and Rugged

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

It's warm as fleece but rugged. Gave it as a gift and it is regularly put to good use.

Im 6' and 220. Usually a L is a bit snug but looks good, XL is a better feel. Im a 36 pant and 44 jacket. What should I order? XL or L?

Responded on

XL for sure. I'm same size.

I'm 5'8" and about 155lbs. Just want to know what size would be the best fit for me.

Responded on

Small would be best for you. This piece is cut in a more relaxed manner then some other patagonia items and I think you would be dealing with lots of extra fabric on anything bigger then the small.

Great Durable Sweater

  • Gender: Male

I'm 5'10", 175lbs, athletic build, and ordered a medium. The length is perfect, fits in the arms well, and it slightly wide for my liking in the body. I wish it was tapered more in the body but this is understood considering it's an everyday sweater that comfortably fits over t-shirt/shirts/layers. The better sweater is fairly warm and I am comfortable wearing it as my warmest layer in ~35 degree weather. The best part about the better sweater is its versatility, I wear it very frequently in multiple settings.

Great product

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I've owned this for over 3 years and have worn it A LOT. It's warm, comfortable, stylish, and can take a lot of wear and tear. Lately I've been wearing it in work settings and have been pleasantly surprised at how professional it looks. From my experience with this I've recently decided to buy a the dark grey version of the full zip and will replace my quarter zip when the time comes.

Better Sweater Forever

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

It's seriously really warm. Too warm, actually. I paid for an amazing sweater but received a portable sauna

If you're curious about sizing, I'm about 5'9, 190lb and medium fits me perfectly

My Favorite Sweater EVER

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Got this for around town and for spring skiing. Its muchhh warmer than i thought it would be. I went with the walnut and it looks great. Also has great build quality.

5 5

indeed a better sweater

My favorite layer I own. So soft inside! It has the regular patagonia fit (I'd like it if it just a little bit slimmer, but it's not bad at all). I'm 6'2" ~180 and got the Large (mostly for the length). It fits me well, no real complaints here.

get one

These are awesome! They are so soft and comfortable, but still tough enough to take backpacking if you wish. Perfect for around town on cool days too.

Amazing

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Rugged but soft. You can wear it anywhere and it fits perfect. Ordered a Medium im 5'11 165 and it was just right. I ordered it in Dill Green and the color is awesome. Definitely stands out and get lots of compliments.

Soft and Classy

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Got it this past weekend for cool mornings and nights while walking around and around town. With fall approaching I wanted an casual pull over that I can wear out and about. Fits true to size and is soft in middle. Zipper is nice that doesn't catch on neck even when fully up. No drawstring cords but the fleece lining makes it feel snug and warm without being tight or constrictive.

Favorite Sweater!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Better Sweater is amazing!
If I'm looking for a warm sweater with a bit of class, this is definitely my go to. I love the brightness of patagonia's colors - I definitely get plenty of compliments on this guy. If you are in between sizes, I'd go with the smaller size (I have a Medium Patagonia R1, but a small better sweater and small super cell jacket)

When will you have the Stonewash Medium in stock?

Responded on

We should be getting more inventory in stock within the next month or so.

Posted on

Is this sweater true to size or do they run slim? I normally wear an XL and I like to have some room, but not where it'll look too baggy.

Responded on

The Better Sweater has a regular fit. I personally find it to be a bit more relaxed.

Responded on

Agree with Mitch, it felt a little relaxed. I ordered a L, which I normally wear, and am exchanging for a M.

Posted on

This color, Storm, looks different on this site than on Patagonia's site. Can someone vouch whether it's as blue on backcountry's photo or more grey, like on Patagonia's page?

Responded on

It'll be closer to the color you see here. I know a guy at Patagonia and they're notorious for awful product photos on their own website.
