    Essential Vest for Fall and Winter

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 140lbs

    This is my new go-to piece for fall. It is perfect to wear over flannels or long-sleeve t-shirts. I normally wear a medium in Patagonia/most other brands, and this vest seems to fit true to size. The material is cozy and stretchy, without feeling bulky. The cut is typical Patagonia, which is slightly boxy. If you wanted the vest to fit more form-fitting, then maybe size down. However, if I sized-down, I think it would be too short on me. I bought this in the Pelican color, which is a tan/cream color. I was a little hesitant about the color, but it looks really good on. Highly recommend!

    Perfect for layering!

    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    I always bring this vest with me for walking my dog or hiking. The pockets are convenient for carrying my phone and keys, and the fit is perfect for layering over a sweater. My go-to for skiing as well!

    Everyday Vest

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    I use this for all of my activities. I've found it ideal as an extra layer for early morning day hikes, and walks in the park, so I can wear a base layer or a flannel under. I prefer this vest to my padded vests because it's a light way to add an extra layer. I love this particular light vest because the better sweater material feels like a cozy hoody without the weight.

    Perfect Vest

    Perfect vest for my mother. Great for cold mornings in AZ playing golf and nice enough to wear out around town when she needs to.

    Fabulous Vest!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 125lbs

    I initially ordered my usual padded Patagonia size Medium for two vests in Navy and Black. However, the vests were really too big, not just the arm holes, but all over. I love them so much I reordered both in size Small. The fit in size Small is perfect, I can easily wear a cashmere or light sweater underneath and still have wiggle room. The fabric is nice and cosy and the Navy is a true Navy which I really liked the most. I’m going to order other colors because the fit is fabulous, and the vests easily fit under coats or jackets. For size reference, I’m 5’ 7” 125lb 34D-26-36 - I’m happy with my purchase, thanks Backcountry ❤️

    Versatile Casual Vest

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: medium
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    I usually order a size up in Patagonia vests, and I ordered a medium in this one. I could have probably made a small work, but the fit seems OK. I have worn this to work, while skiing, and out to events, so it's very versatile -- you can dress it up or down. I think the black color makes the medium appear slimmer, so if you buy a brighter color, perhaps order your usual true size. All around great vest.

    My Go to Vest

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

    I recently bought the Patagonia Better Sweater Vest as a gift for my cousin and she absolutely LOVES it. I have a couple of these things and they really are the best. They are perfect to wear year round with a long sleeve-t or button down plaid. Honestly, anything in the Better Sweater family makes the perfect gift, especially for those hard to shop for family members!

    Great vest!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: XXS
    • Height: 4'10"
    • Weight: 90lbs

    Beautiful color - ordered the Pelican which is a tan-ish color. Great fit but I order a size smaller than normal. I have a previous season's Better Vest (greenish color) and I would agree that this one runs large. I had read reviews before purchasing so I opted for the smaller size, XXS and it fits comfortably. These are great to layer and keep you nice and toasty!

    Great addition to the wardrobe

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought mine a little small so I don't wear it as much as I wish, but I still love the product as a whole. I wear it skiing, backpacking, and around town. Great over flannels, athletic shirts, and basic long sleeves.

    Great Fit

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    This vest fits perfect and keeps you warm. It's also extremely comfy. Great for wearing around as an everyday piece or for layering.

    Instant Classic

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

    Bought this for a friend who works at a hospital and wanted something the same color as her scrubs. She loves it. It's enough to fight off the chill when she's working on a cold floor but isn't ever too much. Kind of a theme for the whole Patagonia Better Sweater family.

    Great everyday basic for your wardrobe

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Height: 5'2"

    This vest is so soft and cozy. I bought the Hemlock Green, which as a nice neutral color and versatile. I was debating between a XS and S (5'2", petite but athletic build), and I went with a S so I'd have room to layer underneath. I've only worn it a few times so far but can already tell I'll get more wear out of it into the fall.

    Short, but a good vest

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 128lbs

    I really wanted to like this vest especially because it was cotton and would not cause my hair to go every which way from the static. But.. I have a long torso and unfortunately this was too short on the front side, it seemed like a nice vest but I ended up returning it.

    Great fit and super warm

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'3"
    • Weight: 132lbs

    I ordered the M in Raw Linen for a trip to Scotland and future trips to Maine/ New England. It was great to wear over a simple sweater or long sleeve tee while venturing all day through hills. Average temperature ranged between 45-60 degrees. Great product and great brand!

    Love it!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 145lbs

    I have worn it every day since I got it with long sleeve t-shirts and crewnecks. I love the size as it's a bit looser to fit thicker clothes underneath!

    Moms will love it

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

    So I got this for my mom and she loves it and so do her friends. Says this vest does a great job at keeping her warm. Also, it feels great.

    Another Great Piece!

    I gave this as a gift. Here is what they had to say: The better sweater vest is awesome! Very lightweight, yet very warm. Patagonia continues to amazing me with their clothing!
