    A step above the rest.

    Patagonia couldn’t have gone with a better name for the Men’s Better Sweater Fleece Jacket. After one day in the Better Sweater, you’ll probably throw out your old cotton sweatshirt. After all, why would you wear fleece every day in the mountains and then go back to cotton in town? Despite the casual cut and style, this soft Patagonia fleece easily makes the cut for technical wear. Midweight fleece makes this piece ideal as both a midlayer and a casual around-town top.

    sweater fleece

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

    I love this jacket; it's warm and stylish and true to size. I have two and I bought my daughter and son one each. Unfortunately the winter, here in Vermont, has been too mild to wear them regularly

    It IS Better

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

    Very warm & comfortable. As a layer or stand alone. I decided on the Better Sweater after an online chat with a BackCountry staffer and am very pleased with it's fit (xxl, I'm 6'6"), comfort and warmth.

    Great product but screwy sizing!

    • Fit:Runs large
    • Size Bought: Large

    Love Patagonia products. Have been using for over 30 years. But the sizing for this Better Sweater is just off. I always wear a Lg in pretty much everything. Sleeves and waist are too long! By about 1.5 inches. Cut is also a bit odd but I can live with that. Exchanging for a Med.

    Better than better!

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

    I was unprepared for just how better the better sweater jacket is compared to most fleece layers/jackets. Very high quality and the feel and look of it is great! Might be my new fave piece of gear but that's a hard act because of all the great Patagonia products I am discovering. My plan is to use it as a mid layer first and casual jacket 2nd. Very happy with the purchase and Backcountry got it safe and sound to my doorstep super quickly! Better than Goatworthy!!!

    Way Stylish

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

    This jacket is awesome, I won one from a wacky t shirt contest. Best. Win. Ever. I chose the small size and am glad I did because it fits perfectly and layers perfectly. I can wear a t shirt underneath and it feels amazing, I can wear a polo with it and it still is a great fit.

    I personally enjoy the loose fit of this jacket and dont feel as though it is too big, and I'm a small person. It is also a relatively warm jacket for how light it is.

    I have worn this bad boy fly fishing, as a mid layer skiing, and even hiking. The full zip makes for better functionality based on activity and even adds style.

    He wont take it off

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

    I purchased this for my roommate and gave it to him as an early Christmas gift.
    I think when he sleeps ill take it and wash it because every time I turn around he has it on.

    The better sweater is a great addition to anyone's collection.
    One thing he commented on was the print, he really likes how its not solid(purchased the Nickel/Forge Grey)

    Did I mention he looks awesome in it?! Because he does!

    Soft. Warm. Amazing Fit. What more could you ask for.

    I am happy with it

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

    So I bought this jacket after trying it on at my local shop and finding BC had the best price out there... then it went on sale at BC even more and they refunded the difference... so I WIN shopping!
    That said I am 6 feet tall and weight 180lb like one of the other reviewers here. I also find it a little loose through he mid section but love the long sleeves. Patagonia has for a long time for me been too boxy. After buying their Levitation softshell (that I think was custom tailored for me in my sleep, I thought I would give this a go. It for sure isn't as close fitting but still a great find. I will likely wear this under my shell to and from adn sometimes in the office this winter. I bought a LRG and can wear it with a T-shirt under neath or rock a hoodie and it no problem. All in all, I am happy with it, would have wanted a little less box, but Patagonia is finally headed in the right direction for highly"active people" (not fitted but slim).

    I didn't even talk about how warm it is... it is very warm and cozy, so layer well if being highly active in it.

    This is SO helpful....
    So I purchased 2 today for my teen boys (19 and 17) These are big hits on college campus:)
    The sizing makes me crazy. They are not big kids. Both maybe 5'8...somewhere no more than 180
    I'm concerned they will be too snug? But I recognize that they may not appreciate too much length in body...or sleeves for that matter?

    Comfy

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

    I chose this over a Synchilla due to the outer knit face. It's a tad more wind resistant and it looks a bit more clean. I've worn it as an outer layer and as an insulating midlayer under a shell. The medium is fairly snug through the torso, but the sleeves are plenty long enough. This is one fleece jacket I know that I will keep for many years.

    Overall great fleece!

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

    I usually get a large in most jackets and even in some layering pieces. I definitely fit in this as a medium. Initially I like it as a fall jacket or layering piece. Great material and warm!

    Fit

      Just received this jacket today and I'm still trying to decide if I'm going to keep it. Doesn't fit to well... sleeves are too long for a medium size, chest is tight and waist is loose. I'm 6'0 , 180lbs. Not sure is worth the price.

      Stylish and simple Fleece

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

      I think that this jacket is as advertised, a simple and good quality fleece. If you wear this jacket often you will find that this fleece is not meant to be windproof, but instead just a simple mid-layer. I like to wear it casually, due to the fleece’s stylish design. I personally felt that there were not that many pockets on the interior of the jacket. For the most part what you see is what you get. Otherwise the only other thing I can say is that if you wash the jacket it will pill up so wash with caution.

      I'd like to buy this for my husband, but, concerned about the sizing.
      He is 6'4 and 240 (little padding in the mid section).
      He's usually an XL (tall) in jackets/fleece.
      Any thoughts on sizing?


      Thank you!

      Hey Ginger!



      So I would say this runs a bit small. So If your husband normally wears a XL, I would step up to the next size. If this is something that you are nervous about, many customer will order two sizes and return what does not work. ( Since we have free exchanges.. within the lower 48 states that is hehe)
