Description

For anything that occupies your day.

Patagonia couldn’t have picked a better name for the Men’s Better Sweater Fleece Jacket. After one day in the Better, you’ll probably throw out your 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 mid-layer and a casual around-town top.

Im 5'8'' and 150 pounds. Would a small be an appropriate size? Most small items seem to be tight in my armpits but fit everywhere else. How much room will I have in the jacket?

Responded on

I would say a small should probably fit you pretty well, you would have enough room under for a base layer, or a button up shirt I assume. This sweater has a bit of a boxy cut in my opinion, I'm 6'1" 175, and wear a medium with a comfortably to roomy fit.

Wonderful

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

Another great addition to my closet from Patagonia. The better sweater jacket is warm, stylish and above-all, comfortable. I've worn the jacket by itself to the lodge and around town after days on the slopes when I'm up North, or just out to the grocery store around town. I've seen other reviews of this jacket online that state that the material will "pill", but after about 25 days of wear, I've yet to notice an issue.

best fitting jacket ever!!

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

true to fit...comes regular fit and not slim fit. This is my 3rd M's better sweater/jacket and all have held up to my harsh outdoor activities. I would recommend this to anyone for mild to wild weather. fits great as an under layer!

Great fit.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've worn this in the freezing weather and it really does well. Kind of a boxy fit, but i really like the material and how warm it keeps me.

Fleece that looks like grampa's sweater

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

It really is a better sweater. It fits great and has excellent details. Breathable like a fleece, but the look of a sweater. And not just any sweater, putting this on ages me 10 years...but in a distinguished professorial way. The best thing about it is the micro-fiber lined pockets which are like returning to the womb. The worst thing is the zipper "windflap" that (like on most jackets) is too stiff and prevents the collar from resting smoothly down when the jacket is zipped up to just below the neck. I just cut it out.

Love at first sight.

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

I love this fleece so much. It's amazingly soft, it has a classic wool look to it that works while outside camping/playing, as well as at the office, and it's the perfect thickness for me in a lot of temps.

This thing is so comfortable that I find myself wearing it around the house almost all winter with a t-shirt underneath.

Classic Patagonia craftmanship- I feel like I'll have this jacket for years to come.

Size

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

The jacket is very soft on the inside. I ordered a medium and it was too small for me. I am 6'1" and 180lbs, and the shoulders were a bit tight, and the length of the body was a bit short for my liking. I returned it for a Large

Great layer for spring/fall, around town

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

This is my second better sweater (Dark Walnut color), and I'm just as psyched with the latest iteration. This time around, I went with a small (I'm 5ft 7in and 31 waist), versus a medium prior. The fit is perfect - not too tight, or too loose. I typically wear around town and over a flannel shirt. The pockets seem different than my previous sweater, but no big deal. Overall, I'm super happy with the latest addition.

Great Fleece and feels good to wear

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

I had this fleece as gift in Jan this year. I usually not a fan of fleece since it heavy and thick but the Patagonia is light and soft. They don't pile and looks good over a shirt. I usually wear L for Patagonia but the M fits well. My favorite color is Nickel.

Great Fleece

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had this fleece for about 3 years now, and I'm still as happy with it as the day I bought it. It fits well (I bought the medium and I'm 6'1, 180 lbs), looks nice enough to go out in, and will withstand years of abuse on the trail, and at the bars!!

Nice looking, hard wearing jacket

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This jacket was bought for spring trip to Ireland. Wore it almost everyday and it still looked good. Liked everything about it except it was a regular fit. My wife has the same jacket in a different color but the womens comes in a slim fit, which makes it a little dressier.

Once home, washed and dried it( zipped and inside out). Looked as if I never wore it. Very pleased with look, color and durability. Definitely worth the price. Just wish the fit were a tad slimmer.

Good warm fleece that sheds dog fur

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

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)

Softest Jacket

This is one of the softest and comfiest jackets I've ever encountered. Cozy and good-looking.

My cocoon

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.

Responded on

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.
