Flattering and functional

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I wear this with a long sleeve wool baselayer and a beanie. Perfect combo for running errands around town in wintry weather, underneath your jacket. Not too bulky so it works well for layering. Flattering fit for longish torsos

Good Vest

    I bought this vest in xs and I am 5'3 110 lbs, it fits great! I love the high zip neck (as opposed to some mock neck vests) and the slight shaping in the waist. The only con is that is sheds a lot and leaves fleece bits on clothes and especially on the seat belt (transferring to jackets, etc). This would not stop me buying another one!

    Patagonia Fleece

      Nice fleece vest that does a good job of keeping your core warm in the outdoors or breaking the chill for casual. My wife has a couple of these and likes the fit. Fleece is super soft but is not a windproof product but it is a recycled product so that has to make you feel good about it.

      Fit is true to size according to my wife.


        Perfectly adequate function and nice fit -- I like that the length is shorter than some other fleece vests on the market (esp. TNF), and it's mostly the same length front and back. Has a nice shape to the body and shows some curves. But the natural color fleece sheds and left fuzz all over everything it touched.

        Your standard fleece vest

          There isn't much to separate this vest from all the other fleece vests out there. It's really a matter of fit, because there aren't many features. For me, the Patagonia Synchilla is a winner. This is an all-around great piece. The fit is the best for my body type. The feature that I appreciate is that it's made from recycled polyester. The technology to do that makes it a little more expensive for now, but I think that it's worth it in the long run to encourage its use and development.
