    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 or rain jacket over. Patagonia added a 1/4-zip front in case you work up a sweat, and the zippered sleeve pocket secures your valuables.

    • An all-around performer for hiking, climbing, and skiing
    • Better Sweater fabric insulates and manages moisture
    • Soft fleece interior provides additional warmth
    • 1/4-zip front pullover design for easy ventilation
    • Slim fit reduces bagginess for easy layering
    • Patagonia is committed to producing sustainable outdoor gear
    • Item #PAT010V

    Quality Sweater

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I received one of the snap T-Fleece sweaters as a gift and I am happy with it but I wanted one with a little different material so I purchased this one. I absolutely love it. It's very comfortable and fits perfect. I got a Medium because I like my sweaters fitting loose. It fits just the way I like it. Very soft and warm! Cant wait to use it on the river flyfishing.

    Better sweater

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

    I just order my first Patagonia better sweater 1/4 zip on sale. I bought a medium. I'm 5'9", 36B size 8. Size m is perfect. Slim fit but not at all tight. It's so very cozy and comfy like a hug. Im wearing a silk long underwear top underneath it right now. I have long arms and the sleeve length is perfect. The length is perfect too. I'm not crazy about this raw linen color. I really hoped it would be a white linen like the the trim on it's sleeves. The color looks like a dingy white. I like the cozy feel of it enough to order another color. I know I'll get a lot of use out of this one because I don't want to take it off! Patagonia clothing is great. You should order one if you're debating.

    Cozy, but tight in the arms

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

    As far as mid-layers go, this is the best I've found. It doesn't block wind, but it will shed a light breeze. It is great for layering over a baselayer, but also fits under a jacket.

    I am usually an XS in Pategonia outerwear, so I ordered both a Small and XS to try on. The XS fit me through the waist better (although it was a little short) but I could hardly get it on over my arms. I only climb and lift a little, but evidently it's designed for women who don't have arm muscles?
    I settled for the Small, which hits me perfectly at the hips but is a little wider/squarer than I would like.

    Staple, go to fleece

      It's hard to find anything new to say about the Patagonia Better Sweater. It's a staple of my wardrobe here in park city starting in the fall, and running through the spring. It's a great fit (mine have shrunk), and after years they're still soft and holding together. Can't recommend these enough.

      Awesome everyday Sweater

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

      I got this sweater as a gift for my mom and she's crazy about it. It runs true to size, and fits her perfectly. Great sweater to be able to pull on quickly, and it is super comfy! So simple, but yet very stylish. Patagonia makes awesome products, and seems to never disappoint. Would highly recommend .

      Awesome gift

        I ordered this for my mom for Christmas who seems to really really like it. I got it for her in the Birch White color and sized up after returning the smaller size. The color is like a tri-blend gray that looks like it can be worn for everyday or fit well in an office on a casual day. It has a nice weight to it and the inside liner is so cozy.

        Great Fleece

        • Fit: True to size

        Another great product by Patagonia. Bought this as gift for my sister and she has worn it almost everyday. Great fleece pullover for many occasions. It is a slim fit, which she likes to have.

        It fits true to size, but...

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

        I read the reviews about sizing up for this sweater, but they did not have the color I wanted in M so I got my regular size S. It does fit true to size, but it is a bit short. Regardless, its very warm and practical for skiing and snowshoeing. I do not have a dress code at work so I also wear it at work. I have received lots of compliments and I do love this sweater and I strongly recommend it.

        Patagonia Know's Their Pullovers

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

        This is my third pull-over from Patagonia and I love each one! The internal fleece lining is super warm, and I love the rugged Better Sweater fabric on the outside. The fact that there is some more durability to the outer shell, and that this doesn't pill like fleece does is a winning combination. As with any fleece from Patagonia, you can wear this casually our out in the wilderness and it will hold up great regardless of the setting!

        Functional and looks great

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

        I bought this for my mom for Christmas. She loves it. It looks great and keeps her warm without being too bulky. I have one myself as well, so I knew it would be well received. Would recommend.

        I am 5'7" , 135lbs with an athletic build. Would you suggest a medium?

        Hey Lyn, I am a similar size and would say a Medium would be a good fit if you wanted to layer with the sweater but if you are looking for a more snug, fitted piece the Small would be the better option. If you have any further questions feel free to reach out and give me a call. My number is 8012044694 and my email is kswistak@backcountry.com

        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!
