    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.

    Never Want to Take It Off!

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

    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.

    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!

    Cozy

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

    Love this pull over so much! Ordered a Medium, originally, which fit well but would have been snug with a shirt/sweater underneath. The Large is perfect for a cozy pull over for studying or lounging.

    Perfect Fall Layer

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

    Since I purchased this pull over I can't stop wearing it. It's so perfect for fall weather, I usually wear it over a flannel with jeans and remain the perfect temperature. I've washed it several times, worn it countless times, and it still hasn't shown any wear and tear. I recommend getting several in all the colors!

    Just ok

    • Fit:Runs small

    Regular size is usually a medium or large. I ordered large to be sure but had to return it for an xl as this particular item runs small. The return process was easy enough but between the two people I spoke/chatted with about the return, no one mentioned that I would be hit for the UPS fee. The returns are not free and that's not explained up front, apparently it's stated somewhere on the website.

    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!
