    A better sweater, that's really a jacket.

    Despite apparel semantics, the Patagonia Women's Better Sweater Jacket truly is a better choice for skiers, hikers, and campers. A slim fit pulls the Better Sweater's soft fleece closer to your body, while allowing easy layering for ski shells. There's a zippered security pocket at the sleeve that's perfect for valuables.

    Love this sweater!

      This sweater is so warm! Not very breathable, but great to wear around the campfire for summer nights or fall/winter jacket. The blue color looks even better in person. Runs a little larger. I'm 5'5" 127 and got the small.

      Comfortable

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: Runs large

      Got this for my GF who wanted something a little more versatile compared to her 1/4 zip better sweater. She wanted to go with the medium but ultimately went with the small as the BS does tend to run slightly large. The small worked perfect for her at 5'5" 120 lbs. Great use as a mid layer for skiing or an outer layer for more mild temperatures.

      Comfortable

      LOVE LOVE LOVE IT

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

      Love this, got it for a trip to Iceland and Faroe islands where we will be doing lots of hiking. I bought it in "tubular blue" and I love the color. Fits nice, I got an xs and I wear xs in most things. Very happy with my purchase.

      Comfy and Warm

      • Size Bought: Medium

      I love this fleece! It kept me snuggly, warm, and comfy in the chilly months. I would order a size down and expect to to be more boxy than form fitting.

      Nice jacket, color darker in picture

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

      I ordered the birch white in a medium. I generally wear a med./large depending on the item. It was noted that the jacket ran large, so I went with the medium. It fit, however I like a jacket to fit a little large and this one was true to size, if anything, a bit small. Birch white looks darker and more like it has black in it in the picture, which I wanted. In person, it is much lighter, more of a light to medium gray. I will be reordering in a large and going with the raw linen color.

      Love the product!

      • Fit: Runs large

      In the picture, the color seems lighter than it actually is in real life. It's still a gorgeous color, but it's not what I was expecting. In addition, this runs slightly large. I usually wear a medium, so when it got here I was disappointed by how big it was. I'm returning it for these reasons, but I will be getting a different one in the correct size!

      true to size

        bought this for layering so I decided to go up a size from my usual. definitely should've gone with my usual size just because it's not form fitting at all which would've allowed for layering even with my usual size. overall great jacket, very warm, even in temps down to 50 which surprised me, and great colors to choose from if you're worried about being stylish on the trails. Patagonia has become my go to brand for warmth and durability thanks to this jacket and a couple other products.

        I give it a 5

        Comfortable. Great looking fleece. I have the green and love the color. Not very fitted but not too baggy. Love the length of the body and the sleeves. The only thing I wish it had is thumb holes on the sleeves.

        Gave as a gift

        Consistent awesomeness from Patagonia. Great thing about the Better Sweater is the combination coziness and presentability: It looks good, but feels like something you wouldn't wear beyond the confines of your couch.

        Just a note: It seems that Patagonia has lengthened the cut on these a bit from past years.

        Nice Jacket

        Bought it for my girlfriend. She likes the look, feel and fit. She's about 5'6, 120lb, and small fits just right. I like the raw linen color, its kind of a textured cream.

        Snuggle sweater

        Confession: I own the better sweater 1/4 zip and love it so much that I saw the Better sweater jacket in a color that would look great on my boyfriend and I had to buy it for him. I secretly wait until he has it on so I can put mine and and we can have the snuggliest snuggle ever.

        To be not gushy though, these shirts are awesome. The sweater material and zippers are finely made and very soft. THis will not pill (despite my poor laundry habits) and hasn't snagged on anything like everything else I own. Not bulky at all. The jacket version is lined in a super soft fleece fabric in the pockets. The 1/4 zip is perfect for fall weather or layering under a shell for winter. I will have this shirt for a very long time and hope my boyfriend is taking all the hints I am laying down about wanting it in more colors.

        Its currently sitting on the chair by my bed in prized position, smelling like a campfire.

        Happy shopping!

        Better Sweater Jacket

        I bought a better sweater jacket about three years ago, and have worn it for everything - hiking, biking, to work, for every day errands and more. It is elegant enough to be part of a work ensemble, yet it is cozy and comfortable for use on the trail. It never wears out and always look brand new. I loved this jacket. One day after I had been traveling alot, I realized that I could not find the jacket anywhere. After thoroughly searching suitcases, closets, automobiles, backpacks, trail heads and more, I gave up. For almost 6 months, i lived without this Better sweater Jacket. Finally one cold fall day recently, I relented and went to the Backcountry site to search for a new jacket. I saw this same jacket and decided to order it - got it on sale to boot..The jacket has changed a little - the body is a little longer, and the sleeves are also longer - two changes I am not as wild about, cuz I liked the waist length of the earlier version. But this one is still made very well and will continue to be the best versatile jacket. Hopefully, I'll hang onto this one and not lose it....

        A staple in my closet.

        I am obsessed with my Patagonia Better Sweater Jacket (and 1/4 zip!). It's a cool sweater material/feeling on the outside with a softer fleece on the inside. This is a nice piece to throw on for a cool Summer night and will be even better for the Winter as a layering piece while on the mountain or town. The quality is awesome too. Highly recommend this to anyone and everyone!
