Great midlayer, not for windy days

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

This jacket is just right for those 40-50 degree days when you don't want to bust out the down jacket, but it's still chilly out. I bought the Violetti color in S, and it fits true to size for Patagonia (I'm 5'5" and 128 lbs). The fleecy lining is very soft, and I haven't experienced any pilling yet. However, it does not block wind at all - I still get pretty cold wearing this if there's a decent breeze blowing.

What is the center back length of a medium?

Great Jacket

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift
  • Fit: True to size

I have one of these myself and love it so much I got one as a gift for my mom. It's super warm and makes for a great mid layer or a stand alone jacket. I got the Violetti color and the color is just as pictured. Overall, a super versatile and comfortable piece to have.

Love the color

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

I bought a safe color "black" last year and loved it so I wanted to venture out with color. Turqoise is my favorite color and the Tobogan Blue did not disappoint me.

Disappointed

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I was very excited to receive my Patagonia Better Sweater, however, as soon as I opened the package the first thing I noticed was the Patagonia symbol on the front completely crooked. At first I thought maybe it was the style, or the way it was folded, but upon trying it on, I was embarrassed to even show anyone the jacket. I am very disappointed that I now have to send it back and I am worried about trusting Patagonia again to order a new one. I always thought Patagonia made quality products so this really disappointed me.

Sorry you received a lemon of a Better Sweater, first I've heard honestly of a crooked tag. This isn't a reflection of Patagonia's overall quality, and I'd feel confident ordering a replacement. Both Patagonia and Backcountry will stand behind your purchase 100%.

love it

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

One of the most versatile articles of clothing I own. Also gave one as a gift . It truly is a better sweater and jacket, of course.
It does run smaller but I wanted a bit more of a jacket fit so ordered a little larger

Not great

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large

I ordered this b/c I love my husband's "Better Sweater". The black is not a rich, deep black. It rather has the appearance of a worn black sweatshirt (somewhat faded looking out of the bag). I agree with others - the fit is off. The sleeves were long. It seemed like it may be a men's fit? It fits like my husband's sweatshirts. It was also bulky and ill-fitting. I am 5'8", 145 lbs and normally wear a 6 or 8. I ordered a medium. It's going back.

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!

Better than playing with kittens

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

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!

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

I had the same problem. After calling Patagonia I found that with each size up you should add 2" to the sleeves and 2" to the sweater length.

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.
