    Details

    Just what your innards needed.

    Pair the Patagonia Men's Better Sweater Vest with a hot drink after a cold powder day and you'll be set to kick back and let your tired muscles relax as you recap the day at your favorite post-ski hang. Patagonia crafted this vest from its Better Sweater material, which consists of a sweater-knit face and soft, fleecy soft interior for warmth and comfort.

    Due to it comfort-first design the Better Sweater makes an ideal companion for around-town wear, but that's not to say its uses are limited to the confines of city streets and mountain towns. In fact, Patagonia equipped the vest with offset shoulder seams to keep the vest comfortable when wearing it with a backpack, and it gave the vest a flat-seam construction to reduce bulk and minimize chafing when worn on its own or layered under a shell on the mountain.

    • An all arounder for everyday wear in town and in the backcountry
    • Sweater-knit fleece exterior dyed with low-impact practices
    • Soft and fleecy interior increases warmth and comfort
    • Elastic bound armholes and hem help to retain body heat
    • Flat-seam construction minimizes bulk and reduces chafing
    • Offset shoulder seams ensure comfort when wearing a backpack
    • Patagonia's regular fit is neither slim or oversized
    • Item #PAT00WX

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

    Great casual piece from Patagonia. Fits great and pairs well with a nice button down underneath for a business casual look.

    Patagonia Vest

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    This vest has been worn many times and its durability really stands out. For those cold summer nights (and I can't wait for cold winter days!!), it keeps your body warm unlike many of the other products on the market. I've enjoyed having the layered look when going out, and it has attracted many complements on the classic look. Great job Patagonia, I recommend this to anyone and everyone who is looking for a nice addition to their closet!

    Patagonia better sweater vest

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 195lbs

    Great product that came when promised. The sizing is perfect but wish the vest was a bit longer. I’m 6’1”, 195 lbs and large fits perfectly but would like if it was a bit longer. Perhaps a long version would do the trick.

    My favorite vest

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'4"
    • Weight: 210lbs

    This vest is my favorite. It's a bit dressier looking than your average fleece vest. I'm tall and it fits me well. It's warm and comfortable.

    Great Fit

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 6'5"
    • Weight: 210lbs

    This is a great looking fleece / vest. The heathered look is very "nice" looking, and would make a great choice to wear out, or wear to the desert. Fit is also spot on and allows for a little layering under or above.

    Better or best?

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

    Gave this to my dad as a gift. He loves it. Pairs well with most of his wardrobe and it adds just enough warmth. Plus, its from Patagonia. How can you not like that?

    Best Vest

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    What makes a vest the best? Is it durable when you put it through a vest test? Or perhaps the vest fits well around the chest. Nonetheless, this blessed vest will ensure you're the best dressed guest on any quest. Whether you're heading west with your vest or even feeling a little pressed to take a rest I can assure you that you won't be stressed with the softness and durability of this here vest. You'll be impressed with this vest I must attest for at it's crest you can't protest that this vest is indeed one of the best.

    Dad loves it

    Bought this for my dad. He loves wearing it to the office, on the mountain or just around town. Fits true to size.

    My favorite vest

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    The Better Sweater vest is the vest that i choose to wear while either out and about or in need of another layer when skiing/hiking/etc. I typically run a little warm and try not to wear too many layers. This vest not only looks sharp, but is also a great piece to have in order to warm up. I strongly recommend the vest!

    The ultimate office vest

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 190lbs

    Offices can be tricky - too cold, too warm, want to be comfortable but still look sharp... Better sweater may be the ultimate option - it's a little dressier than a classic fleece, looks good with a button down, is warm, durable, and comfy.

    It also looks and works great around town or outside - layers well under a jacket for hiking or skiing, pairs well with pretty much anything you could wear.

    I may or may not have more than one because I like em so much...

    Great

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    This vest fits great (true to size, consistent with Patagonia) and it also performs well as a midlayer under a ski jacket.

    Patagonia Better Sweater Vest

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

    This was an amazing gift for my husband. It fits true to size and keeps him warm while looking stylish. He wears it all the time!!

    Stylish + Rugged

    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    I bought this vest as much more of a "townie" item, but have found it very beneficial for skiing and ski touring. If I can keep my core warm, I feel that the rest of my body stays that way.
    A medium fit works great for me and I am 5'10 and 165lbs.
    You have to love a brand that has a sustainable supply chain and a responsible environmental impact. Long Live Patagonia.

    Great Vest!

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

    I recently purchased this vest to wear over my button ups while at work or out and about. It is not only stylish, but is very warm as well. I've received compliments on the vest since i purchased it. I find that the fit is true to size.

    Great for camping or work

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

    Bought this for my boyfriend for the purpose of him using it for work. He wears it over button ups so that he can get away without ironing his shirts. It also keeps him warm and adds a bit of style to his outfit. He also wears it camping and outdoors as well and likes it for this purpose.
