    Details

    The look of a sweater with the feel of a fleece.

    When you want the heat-trapping power of fleece, but you don’t want to look like a wooly bugger, reach for the Men’s Patagonia 1/4-Zip Better Sweater. It has a 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, but when things get really chilly, you can wear it under a shell as a midlayer. Raglan sleeves lend to the athletic aesthetic and keep you comfortable when you’re slinging a pack across campus or to a remote hot spring.

    • A well-rounded fleece for everyday wear in town and in the mountains
    • Sweater-knit face with fleece interior with heathered yarns
    • Dyed with low-impact processes to reduce the use of dyestuffs
    • Quarter-zip pullover design with stand-up collar
    • Raglan sleeves promote mobility and remain comfortable under a pack
    • Flat-seam construction reduces bulk and helps prevent chafing
    • Classic regular fit with shape-holding trim at cuffs and hem
    • Item #PAT00WW

    Great sweatshirt, horrible smell

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    I received this sweatshirt and opened the plastic bag it arrived in. The smell that filled my room was that of the most horrific body odor I have ever smelled.

    I will attempt to wash the item , hoping the smell is eliminated.

    It is appalling that Back Country would ship out an item that was clearly worn and returned.

    Wear it all the time

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

    I bought this for my brother for Christmas and he is by far the hardest person to shop for! Thankfully he loved it! He had this to say "It's definitely comfortable and warm, I wear it all the time and it works well for just about any situation (work, school, hiking) and I like the quality".

    nailed the durable/dressy/functional

      I got this for my dad and he wears it every single day (and always sends me cute selfies of him wearing it). He wears it to work over a dress shirt but also on hikes or when doing outdoor activities. Super versatile! The fit is perfect, he usually wears an XL and an XL sweater is a great fit for him. Fabric is very thick and warm and feels durable to the touch. My dad always raves about how warm it is! Definitely a must have for dads and all men alike! Super stylin and the classic Patagonia functionality.

      Love these!

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

      Have been getting these things for years and absolutely love them. Warm, comfortable and durable. The first one I bought years ago shrunk but still fit ok as long as I was wearing a t shirt under. Have bought a couple more, more recently and they did not shrink at all after washing so purchase based on your normal size. Love these and love the company, keep it up Patagonia.

      Love these!

      Soft, durable warmth. Casual look

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

      From Tabby Mountain in -15 to the brisk southern desert mornings here in Utah, I've used this sweater in almost every way possible.. It is super durable, the reinforced cuffs and hem retain their shape remarkably. Im a bigger guy, wearing an XL is just right, I'd go XXL for any additional beefy layers on particularly cold days, other than that I've started a climbing day with it on and wore it over a button up for dinner that night. TRULY THE BETTER SWEATER!

      So good I bought THREE

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

      I bought the first one for my daughter. My wife immediately stole it. So I bought her one too. They both love theirs. After looking them over and listening to my family talk about how warm they are, I bought one fir myself. I have really enjoyed it. It is very warm and quite comfortable. It is a bit long but nothing I mind.

      Bomb Diggity

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

      The outer "heathered" look of the sweater makes for a very polished look, while the inside is just as soft and comfy on the skin as your favorite worn in fleeces. It's the perfect layering piece in the fall (by itself) or in the winter (with another jacket). Since I got one I have tried as hard as possible to never take it off. I went with the XL, and I am about six foot five, and weigh 200 lbs. Fit is absolutely perfect.

      Best Gift Ever

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

      Bought this for my boyfriend for Christmas and it fits PERFECTLY and is really warm! It looks great both dressed up and dressed down. Not to mention the soft fabric makes cuddling up to him even more enjoyable than it already is!

      Toasty Comfort

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

      This quarter Zip fleece is heavier than a usual fleece. It is definitely warmer than my other patagonia fleeces. The texture makes it look like wool The piping looks great and adds style. I use this for skiing, hiking and walking the dogs. I love the zip breast pocket, which is perfect for my iPhone. The blue is brighter than it appears in the picture but after living with it I like it. It is unique and stylish. It has worn great so far and I look forward to having this for years.

      Favorite 1/4 Zip

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

      Got the nickel color and I love it. Its no longer listed as an option above but it would have been the one I would have recommended. Fits great and feels good. It's not the warmest sweater but I like to use it as an under layer and that works perfectly. I gave it 5 stars because it's just nice, plain and simple. Highly recommend it.

      Birthday Boy!

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

      I bought this for my brother for his birthday, and now he's the coolest son...I've always been the coolest son. He wore it to family dinner the other day, and everybody was like "dang Ian, you look great!" And I'm like "well what am I, chopped liver?" and my dad was like "no that's what's on your plate." It's classy, functional and it'll make you look cool. I'm buying myself the full zip version, RIGHT NOW! Then we'll see who's the coolest son, Ian!

      My Favorite Sweater

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

      Out of everything I have bought from backcountry, this sweater is my favorite. It is extremely warm and the material on the inside is some of the softest clothing material I have ever felt. It is not only very useful in cold temperatures but is stylish as well. I will recommend this sweater to anyone looking to purchase some cold weather clothing.
