I know right away fleece and my best friend are, well, best friends.The knit on the better sweaters seem to do well with dog hair, in the right color of course. Also these sweaters are very warm and really too much so to wear indoors when the heat is on (in a yurt one might enjoy the coziness, but not in your office?) I size UP to make donning the jacket over a shirt much easier and just a tad better coverage (pull the extra sleeve over a cold steering wheel!) I also wear it under a shell a lot as it is not wind proof or rain proof... but perfect under a shell. I plan to use this item for about 7 years I hope. Get one, you will like it too.
I would recommend sizing down, it's definitely spacey and this is only the Medium (I'm 6'0, 200lbs)
This is one of the softest and comfiest jackets I've ever encountered. Cozy and good-looking.
This is one of the most comfortable articles of clothing I've had the pleasure of wearing. The whole thing is top quality, good fit, good feel, looks great. Easily my favorite fleece jacket. I often find myself not wanting to take it off.
My son is 6'2" do you think the patagonia R2 jacket in medium will be long enough? If I order a large I'm afraid it will be too wide in the waist.
I am 5'9" 148 LBS and find the medium fits me perfectly. it is a close fiting cut. Definitely go for the Large it will not be too loose.

I have purchased two of these over the years. It is comfortable, warm, and not a bad looking fleece. I wear it all the time. Only downside are the pills but a clothing shaver does the trick.

Funny, I'm actually wearing this fleece as I'm writing this review. This fleece is very comfortable and looks great in Yosemite and at the grocery store. One thing to note, there are no drawstrings or anything of the sort, it's just a simple fleece that's warm and comfortable. The pocket is a nice feature too.
One thing to note, this thing is not very windproof (not designed to be). So you can feel the wind a bit. Also, this fleece is a little expensive--that's Patagonia! Nonetheless, for a casual all-around fleece, this is it.
I highly recommend this product.
This is a really comfortable fleece and surprisingly warm. I found myself wearing it often in winter since it's just an easy and good looking jacket you can wear everyday. Really soft and not itchy.
This has become my go-to jacket for spring or fall days without a lot of wind. It's surprisingly warm, very soft and comfortable, and looks great. You get all the comfort of a hoody, but it looks much nicer. The sleeves do run a bit long--but they weren't too long by any means (personally my arms are a bit long too, so it works well for me). I have not tested it under any highly adventurous conditions, but I would definitely recommend it for casual use.
Lightweight buys provides incredible warm. Great looking as well.
I was looking for an all around jacket that I could wear in town, and I bought this because I liked the finish. However it is way too susceptible to wind, even a slight breeze. If you hold it up to the light you can almost see through it. A little too warm indoors also. I didn't try it under a shell, I'm sure there are conditions where it works well. But in general it's not very versatile.
Much better than a sweater as it is warmer. Great looks too. I have two of them.
For all those who need something warm but light this is the right jacket. Great for the high desert mornings and light enough to wear through a winter's afternoon without shedding layers, Will keep you warm but not sweaty all afternoon - buy one!
I love this jacket. I am 5' 10" 170 lbs and medium build and the medium fits perfectly. Not as fitted as it seems in the pictures but I love it anyway. I'm planning on buying at least two more. Highly recommended.
do u have the men's better sweater jacket in stonewash ? size medium. When ordering , medium is not a choice in the stonewash
Unfortunately Stonewash in a medium is out of stock right now, but it's one of the more popular colors in the Better Sweater, so I'd expect it to come back in stock within a month or so.
This sweater is perfect for home/office/backcountry. I've used it as an outerlayer with just a tshirt down to around the mid 40s keeping me warm cozy all the way, while stil being breathable enough to cope with the changes between outdoors and office central heating/aircon. I'm 5'11, 170lb, 30waist 40 chest and the medium fits perfectly. The fabric is luxuriously soft inside while also having a beautiful durable knitted look outside.
The sweater has lasted me an full year of use down the pub, climbing, canyoning and caving... although it does tend to stretch over time with too many drinks being carried past bouncers in the handy inside pockets, and is unfortunately not fireproof... went into cave... torch started going out.. whirled torch around to get some oxgyen in the flame and enough light to get out of a dark situation... upon finding daylight I also discovered multiple holes all over my favorite sweater from the bits of ash coming off the torch... Will get 2 this time incase I'm attacked by flaming bees or something in the future.
Nice sweater, wish I could have found the 1/4 zip on-sale, but this is pretty darn comfy, and looks killer when you have it on.
This really is a better sweater. It is lightweight, warm, well cut, and surprisingly durable. It is perfect for just about any situation: lounging around the house, jogging, errands around town, even layering under a shell for cold weather mountaineering. This thing is the most versatile and long lasting mid-layer that I own.
If $130 seems a bit much for a polyester sweater, consider the ¼ zip version. It is significantly cheaper and just as amazing (plus it has a handy chest pocket). However, as with all ¼ zip tops, it can be a little tricky to get on and off. Once its on though, no need to worry!
Pros: Super comfortable, warm, durable, versatile, and good looking.
Cons: Price (although its worth every penny), not very compressible for those who need every square inch of their pack, not very wind resistant (layering solves this issue).
Overall: A mid-layer you can wear on the mountain, at the bar, and around the house. Why not?
I've got two better sweaters, one 1/4 zip and one full zip, and really like both. The reason I have two is because my wife stole the 1/4 zip and wears it a lot
I wear this one around town and to work a lot because it looks nice enough while still being super comfortable and warm as well; basically it's just really versatile
Great piece from Patagona, especially when it's on sale
