    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

    Great look and Fit

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    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!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XXL
    • Height: 6'6"
    • Weight: 260lbs

    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!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: small
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 140lbs

    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.

    A must have

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    The cloth though a little thick, feels very easy on your body. The color options are great. Fits perfectly to size. This one will definitely go on to your favorites list

    Perfect gift for dad

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 125lbs

    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.

    Can't go wrong!

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

    Such a great, versatile piece that can be worn year round. Can't really go wrong with this! Originally sized up to a M, but returned for a S as it does run TTS. If you like a looser, slightly baggy look (or plan to wear thicker layers under) you could size up.

    Arms too fitted

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XXL
    • Height: 6'4"
    • Weight: 250lbs

    Fits well in shoulders and length-wise but the arms (especially wrist to elbow) are too fitted!

    Warm and comfortable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: L
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 210lbs

    Use to wear in the city and also when I got hiking. It keeps me nice and warm no complaints. Its a great fleece jacket will end up buying more in different colors.

    An investment for life

      There’s a certain standard of quality that every Patagonia product lives up to, and the better sweater is no exception. The quality is outstanding, and the fit is sublime. In terms of warmth, the better sweater feels more like merino wool than poly. Which is nothing short of impressive, but then again, what more do we expect from Patagonia?

      Warm

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 5'8"
      • Weight: 175lbs

      This was a nice sweater. It is true to size.. Unfortunately, I guessed and ordered the wrong size so it had to be exchanged for a smaller size.

      IT was a gift

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XL
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 200lbs

      I bought it for my son and the feedback is awesome. He loved it

      Great Gift for Dad

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

      I recently purchased the Better Sweater is Stonewash for my Dad for his birthday, he loves these fleeces. He already has it in the Classic Red and Bleached Stone and lives in them, so I figured another color would be great to add to his wardrobe. The Better Sweaters fit great and last forever, they look great even after being washed a lot of times. I am sure this won't be the last Better Sweater I purchase.

      Warmer than I thought!

      • Fit: True to size

      This sweater is classic Patagonia quality, it's super soft fleece inside with a nice tight knit outer and understated design. I am also surprised at how warm this thing is for being what I assumed was a light jacket. The fit is a little boxy for me, but this is consistent with the rest of Patagonia's jackets so no surprises or cons here. Really nice sweater for throwing on anytime anywhere.
