    Better than your sweater.

    The Patagonia Women's Better Sweater 1/4-Zip Fleece Pullover is better for skiing, hiking, and camping than most sweaters. A slim fit pulls this sweater's soft fleece closer to your body for more comfort, and it's easier to layer your ski shell and puffy over. Patagonia added a 1/4-zip front in case you work up a sweat, and the zippered sleeve pocket secures your valuables.

    Nice and warm.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: X- Small

    This sweater is the perfect pullover but pay attention to the slim fit and I would recommend going a size up. It is so cozy and warm...everyone needs one!

    Great sweater, runs small

      I really like this sweater. The only minor problem I had with it was that it ran small. I used their sizing specs to order (XS, which is what I usually order through Patagonia and never have an issue), and when I received it the fit was very snug and I wouldn't be able to fit another layer under it. So I'm returning the XS one and ordered a Small instead, so I'm hoping this one will fit better! Otherwise it's great quality sweater.

      Versatile

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

      I bought this for a friend's birthday. She constantly sings its praises. Heavy enough to keep her warm but lightweight enough for flexible movement and the possibility to layer (under or over the better sweater!).
      She wears it for casual nights on the town or under a raincoat on a hike or camping trip.

      Exactly What I Wanted

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

      I had to have the women's Better Sweater after seeing how much my husband loves his men's version. I love the weight of the fleece and the material - not too heavy, but still cozy. It's so easy to throw on for chilly walks in the morning and makes a great layering piece for cold weather hiking/camping. The only bummer is that it doesn't have any pockets like a normal fleece would, but the small arm pocket works fine for a key. Highly recommend!

      Aptly named

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

      This pullover is so flattering, even on my small frame. The xs is perfect to wear a thin layer or two underneath and not at all to bulky to layer under another sweater or a jacket. Not that you would need to - this thing is so warm it's crazy. In a perfect way though. The birch color is a match with anything, though I love my blue one too. Another plus about this is that it washes well. I wash it inside out to keep the outside looking as nice as possible and have had no problems. I even run it through the dryer - didn't pill or shrink.
      Bomber sweater.

      LOVE!!

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

      First of all, if you're buying this pullover and want to be able to layer with an undershirt you should probably order up a size. I bought the medium and it fit sung, hence the slim fit, and returned it for a large. The large gives me just enough wiggle room to not feel restricted and be able to layer with a t shirt for extra warmth. I absolutely love this pullover! It's very comfortable and warm enough to use first thing in the morning and the cool spring nights here in NC. Plan on buying another color soon.

      Best fleece ever

        I'm obsessed with my better sweater! I have quite a few colors already and these things are amazing. They're super warm and the fit is great.

        Better Sweater

        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: XS

        This sweater fits great and is super comfortable. I highly recommend this product for everyday wear.

        Never Want to Take It Off!

        • Size Bought: Medium

        Nailed this gift for my girlfriend.

        "I could live in the Better Sweater. It is so cozy. Material is dense but not heavy. I sized up so the fit is a little baggier. It's longer than my other fleeces which I'm happy about for wearing it up skiing. I got it in Black but would love to have another in a fun color someday!"

        Best fleece ever!

          This is my 3rd color in the Better Sweaters from Patagonia. They last so long, but I had to add some new colors to my closet. I would highly recommend this to anyone! It's a great gift to give as well :)

          Everyday Sweater

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

          I bought this sweater in the Heather Purple and it is so flattering on me! The seams on the inside of the arms drive me crazy, so I have to wear a long sleeve underneath, but that is my only complaint! This sweater layers really well and is a nice insulator. The material is soft and you can tell that it is made with quality fabric. 10/10 would recommend.

          Warm

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

          This sweater is so soft, warm, and casual. I love wearing these type of sweater next to bond fires. It's light weight enough to wear it even in the summer.

          Great as a layer

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

          I bought this fleece to use under a shell for skiing on all but the very coldest days. It fits well, is warm and not to bulky as my top layer. Sometimes the arms on Patagonia women's L are too long. Not so with this fleece. I'm very satisfied with my purchase. It was well worth the price. Oh, another thing, my husband says it looks great on me! That's worth the price.

          Best sweater ever!

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

          This is the most comfortable pullover I have ever purchased! It's soft and warm and great for when you're feeling a little chilly at home or need a cozy sweater layer under your jacket outside! Definitely not warm enough to wear alone in December in Northern Minnesota, but makes for a great layer! Excellent quality also.

          Patagonia - Better Sweater Women's

          • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
          • Fit: Runs large
          • Size Bought: large

          The sweater runs a little large compared to the same sweater (different color) that I ordered last year. Also the quality of the sweater which is still good , but not the same quality of the sweater that I got last year.

          Fits smaller than advertised

          • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
          • Fit: Runs small
          • Size Bought: small

          I ordered a small and it definitely fit much smaller than that. I always order smalls and I am a petite person, so it was strange when I tried it on and it was tight. Other than that, it was great quality!

          Go to sweater

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

          This sweater is so soft and warm as well as very stylish. Its nice because you can wear it out, or layer it under jackets for bitter days. I am 5'3 125 and I went with a medium, its a bit loose on me but I like the comfortable baggy fit for sweaters. In love with it!

          True to Size

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

          I was quite nervous buying this because several people said it runs small. It does not. It's a nice fit, and while it is fitted, it does not fit like a glove. I have enough room for a semi-thin shirt underneath. The quality is great. I can tell it will withstand years of wear.

          PERFECT sweater!

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

          I love Patagonia - probably 3/4 of my closet is Patagonia. That being said, this is always my go-to pullover. It goes with everything and always keeps you the perfect temperature. I've worn this backpacking, hiking, snowshoeing, to class, & out to dinner with my boyfriend. It has held up through it all. I'd order one in every color if my wallet let me!
          If you're looking to just wear a t-shirt or tank top underneath, I'd say it's true to size. If you're looking to layer, I'd say go up a size. I'm 5'4, 150 lbs, athletic build, and a medium fits perfectly.
          You can't go wrong with this pullover. If you're on the fence about it, just go for it :) you won't be disappointed!

          PERFECT sweater!

          All - In - One Sweater

          • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
          • Fit: Runs small
          • Size Bought: Large

          I am so glad I went up a size. Seriously, it makes it just cozy enough, and I can layer underneath it. I'm 5'3 1/2, 135 lbs, and I normally wear a medium, but went with a large for this sweater. I recommend going up a size!

          It's cozy, warm, and has just enough flow. I think I was expecting it to be softer, but that's not a big deal. You can use it for hiking, camping, going to class, traveling...it's kind of a fit-all sweater. So far, I love it!

          Looking at this sweater as well as the full zip. I'm about 5'5"-5'6" and around 110 lbs. Slim and slightly lanky. Any thoughts on XS or S?

          I'm 5'0" around 110 lbs and I got a small and it fits perfectly. It's not tight and I can wear a shirt underneath it but it's not awkwardly baggy! The length falls perfectly at my hips and I can bend over without my bum hanging out! Hopefully that gives you some perspective!

          I'm 4'10 and 105lbs and got an XS. The length is a little long for me (but is nice to wear with leggings!) as well as the arm lengths... other than that it fits fine! I would say if you plan on really piling layers under it, go with the Small. You could get an XS if you maybe plan on just wearing a tank or thinner top underneath. Hope this helps some!
