    Better Sweater 1/4-Zip

    When you want the heat-trapping power of fleece, but you don’t want to look like a wooly bugger, reach for the Men’s Patagonia 1/4-Zip Better Sweater. It has a knit exterior for a clean, sharp look and a fleecy heat-holding interior. It is warm enough to wear as a jacket in cool weather, but when things get really chilly, you can wear it under a shell as a midlayer. Raglan sleeves lend to the athletic aesthetic and keep you comfortable when you’re slinging a pack across campus or to a remote hot spring.

    • A well-rounded fleece for everyday wear in town and in the mountains
    • Sweater-knit face with fleece interior with heathered yarns
    • Dyed with low-impact processes to reduce the use of dyestuffs
    • Quarter-zip pullover design with stand-up collar
    • Raglan sleeves promote mobility and remain comfortable under a pack
    • Flat-seam construction reduces bulk and helps prevent chafing
    • Classic regular fit with shape-holding trim at cuffs and hem
    • Item #PAT00WW

    it is my fourth black one

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

    I read below "quickly become my go to pullover for cool weather"
    i bought one and loved. two years later after too much use i bought the second black one and the next year bough the third one. the firs one became the one to use for biking and when cleaning bikes on cold days + heavy dirt work. then the second one after heavy use was down graded to heavy dirt work too. the third one is still to use in the office during the winter and the fourth one is to go out nice and clean. It became a must have one for me.
    right now, i toke advantage of the promotions and bough e other in different colors. I just love this pullover. they are warm, comfortable and easy to carry around. and then last longer too.

    Superior warmth

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 196lbs

    This sweater is thick and warm. It's not scratchy or itchy. I like how it fits and appears to be very well made. This will be an excellent addition to my winter wardrobe to stay warm while working or playing outside. The color of this sweater is a very nice color, it matches most of my other clothes.

    The sweater that's better!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: small
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    I just picked a couple of these up for myself and they have quickly become my go to pullover for cool weather. Nice enough to be worn to the office but rugged enough to adventure in as well. Being more of a casual piece, it's a little bulky and won't pack down super small but will most definitely keep the chill at bay. I've been using it as my fleece layer for skiing recently and it keeps me very warm. Will be great for car camping or day hiking this spring as well as daily casual wear. I would say these fit true to Patagonia's sizing. I found the perfect fit in a size small.

    I often regret purchases, this isn’t one of those moments. I love the fleece by Patagonia. It makes for great layering, really warm, comfortable and a great fit. Definitely suggest it

    Love the brand and love this top!

    I've always loved Patagonia! And the more I buy items they make, the more impressed I am with them. My new Better Sweater is already one of my favorites! It was a little thicker than I imagined - making it warmer than expected - but it's soft, it fit perfectly, and the pocket and collar construction are just great! Hard to imagine that this top could be any better... seriously!

    Great item

    I love this sweater it is good in all types but of weather can wear inside as well. Highly recommend this item.

    Dad's 4th Better Sweater

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

    I purchased this as a gift for my dad, it is his 4th Better Sweater... safe to say, he loves them. Here is what he has to say about his Better Sweaters:

    "This will be my fourth purchase of a “Better Sweater” from Patagonia, I really love this versatile piece of clothing. These sweaters are as at home going out to dinner as they are kayaking or cross country skiing. I use mine as a single layer in moderate temperatures, or an additional layer under shells in colder weather. The ¼ zip which I prefer allows for quick ventilation or additional warmth when needed as well. Sizing is true to size on these sweaters and I would suggest to hang them to dry rather than exposing to high heat in the dryer, this minimizes the pilling and the wear on the fabric. Great product!!"

    Fantastic gift idea

    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    Feedback from my best friend after I ordered one as a Christmas gift for him:

    "Patagonia continues to impress with its comfort, professional line of fleece sweaters. So much so that I bought this in multiple colors.

    Light on the body with maximum warmth and durability. Extremely comfortable and loose, yet fitted in the right places. As always, highly recommended."

    Great look and Fit

    You really can’t go wrong with Patagonia . I’ve bought this for both my mother and father and they love them. You can wear it casual with gym clothes for a hike or dress it up with khakis for work. Fit is true to size and they last forever!

    Better Sweater!

    Another perfect garment from Patagonia! Seriously, what's not to like? Must try one if you haven't already , well worth the price and you won't be disappointed.

    fantastic!

    The fit is perfect (size small for 5 foot 6 male). It is warmer than expected which is great to pair with lighter or shell type jackets in the winter. Also, color is perfect. Went with the bleached stone.

    Perfect gift for dad

    Gave it as a gift to dad and he loved it for the cool days and cold nights in the mountains. He's been sporting it around the house as well. Says it fits and layers well.
