Description

Great looks meet great warmth for a fall and winter sweater you won’t ever leave at home.

Explore another lively mountain town this winter when you wear the Patagonia Women’s Better Sweater Jacket. Combining a knit sweater feel on the outside with a soft fleece interior, the Better Sweater insulates you while maintaining the about-town look of a sweater sold at twice the cost. This fleece jacket isn’t just for looks, however, with the stand-up collar as well as a front zipper wind flap to guard against the gusts during chilly day hikes in the hills.

Really the perfect fleece

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

Love this fleece. It is not the least bit bulky, but it's still very warm and blocks wind better than my North Face fleece. The length of the sleeves is longer than most, but that is a great thing for us tall people. I've washed it a couple times and it's held up great, no shrinking or pilling so far!

As soon as I put this sweater on, all of my hopes and dreams came true.

Inconsistent Fit-Disappointed

  • Fit: Runs large

I have 4 Better Sweaters in various colors, all size S. They are wonderful! This one in Oasis Blue would have been my 5th. Unfortunately it is going back. Loved the style & color, but fit was off. Body and sleeves were much longer than usual. Sleeves have always been slightly long, but these fell past my fingertips. Not what I was expecting and not a good look.

LOVE. LOVE, LOVE!

  • Fit: True to size

A co-worker had the better sweater, and I loved it, so my husband and girls purchased the teal one for me for my birthday! I love, love, love it! I'm a size 0-2, and the XS fits great. The sleeves are just slightly long, but nothing major! The color, fit, and craftsmanship are awesome, and it's very warm and comfortable... one of my all-time favorite birthday gifts!

Awesome sweater jacket

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

Bought for wife this fall. She loves it. Just like all Patagonia products it is quality. Very warm and comfortable. She wears it under a shell for snowshoeing. Just right. Have had excellent service from Backcountry.

Disappointment for the Quality

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

Color:Black Size XL
For the first week this sweater was nice. It was warm and soft and I loved it.. so I thought. Then it started pilling on the sleeves and where the pockets are.It started look really cheap and for spending $130 on a sweater I would expect a higher quality product. Maybe it was because of the color that you could see the pilling easier? I don't know but I am sad that I had to return it. Also the wind goes right though this as if you aren't wearing anything at all. I know it's not windproof but I've had sweaters that hold a little bit.

Wife LOVES this Fleece!

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

My wife has owned this fleece for nearly a year now & she loves this jacket more than she loves me! haha But really, it looks great, works wonderfully with layering & is built to last like every other Patagonia piece.

My wife lives in this fleece

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

I bought this for my wife's birthday over a year ago and she has worn it nearly everyday since then. She is 5'3 110 lbs and the XS fits perfectly.

Nice, but runs large

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

I'm 5'9" tall and 146 lbs and ordered the Large. It was too big and bulky. I already took the tags off, so I knew I couldn't return, but ordered a Medium which fits perfectly like a sweater should. The sweater does not look like traditional fleece at all, but much more upscale and refined looking. Very soft and warm.

Responded on

Do you still have the large?

Awesome jacket!

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

This fleece is great! I wear it a minimum of 5 days a week usually in the office but its's gone on a few backpacking trips and held up nicely. I've owner this jacket a little over 6 months. With constant use and a few washes, it still looks brand new. I'm 5'6", 140 lbs and the small fits perfectly.

The perfect travel jacket

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

Purchased the jacket for a 12 day trip to Ireland in May2013. It was the perfect choice for this trip. The fleece was warm while the sweater on the outside gave a more polished look. I wore it all 12 days- on the tour bus, on the plane and hiking the Cliffs of Moher and the Giant's Causeway. If I felt a little too warm, just unzipped it. Toured the Waterford Factory as well as Belleek and the sweater did not look out of place. I even saw another woman at the Cliffs of Moher wearing the exact same jacket in the soft grey. We just pointed at our jackets and laughed. This was one of the few jackets where the sleeves were long enough. I am 5'11 and this can be a problem but Patagonia always seems to have a good sleeve length.
Washed it as soon as we got home. Would suggest zipping it up all the way the turning inside out to wash and dry. My jacket looked brand new when it cam out of the dryer. So did my husbands. He got one in another color and he was just as pleased with his.

Got one for my sister too

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I let this sweater to my sister on a trip in the fall of 2011. This fall you begged me to get her one early for Christmas. We live on opposite sides of the country but, I know when it cold out we are both wearing our favorite gray heather sweater.

Great

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

I have the Endive color from a few years back. I sized down to a small, I'm 5"7 135 with a small upper body. The small is plenty long in the sleeves and torso. Great for layering as it is not as bulky as some of the other Patagonia fleeces. I recommend it!

better sweater Women (feather gray)

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

This color is gorgeous, first of all. The sweater is really nice, it doesn't feel like fleece but warms up your body like fleece. I've only had it for 3 months but used it in Georgia winter and during cold fronts in Key West. It's good for about 40F, and I used it as a layer under an insulated NF jacket in colder temps. Overall, awesome jacket and I highly recommend it!

Great jacket!

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

I love this jacket. It is very warm and extremely soft and comfy. It does have longer than average sleeves and torso but other than that it fits pretty true to size. I'm 5'8'', 160 lbs with a large chest and usually wear a medium or large, and went with the large for this jacket to give enough room for layering and comfort. If you are thinking about purchasing, definitely do it.

Nice!!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Got the natural feather gray. Only used it at a windy night, but I really liked it. the wind did not break through. It's so soft on inside and feels nice and looks great on outside. A little more of a casual instead of athletic look to it. Fits good and I'm 5ft 3in, 153lbs. Got the large. Does not look boxy or frumpy. More of a fitted look. Supposed to get a cold front soon. will let you know if it keeps me warm.
