This fleece is really nice for layering if you're out on the mountain! I've worn it on pretty cold mornings with just a light base-layer underneath and my shell jacket. Super warm fleece. (I also tend to get pretty warm when skiing, so I never wear a lot of layers) It's also a great fleece for snowshoeing!
It is more form fitting so if you prefer a baggier fleece for more layering, I'd recommend going up a size. I'm 5'3" about 110lbs and got this in a small but like I said, just something light underneath is enough for me.
Love it! Highly recommend!!
Better Sweater 1/4 zip video review
Laura from Patagonia shares her thoughts on the Better Sweater 1/4 zip jacket.
I love this pullover because it can be used in spring/fall and as a layer during winter! Has always kept me warm,and is fitted so not too baggy. 5'2, 120lbs and small fits great! Also love the sleeve pocket, great for storing chap stick when wearing yoga pants or anything else that doesn't have pockets!
Patagonia 1/4-Zip Better Sweater Rocks!

My girlfriend is rockin' in this fleece sweater (jacket?). She usually leans towards more muted colors (blacks, greys, browns) but really likes the blue (because it really "pops" against a black and white background?). Other jacket compliments: warmth / slim fit / arm pocket / fabric (they've really figured out how to make polyester fleece feel like cotton/cotton-blend). Recommended.

I'm 5'5'' and 125lbs. Would like to be able to wear this sweater on top of Cap3 or Cap4. Should I go with a small or medium?
I'm 5'6" and 140 lbs. I got a small and it fits perfectly. I would imagine you would be fine with a small but no guarantees.
