    Better than your sweater.

    The Patagonia Women's Better Sweater 1/4-Zip Fleece Pullover is better for skiing, hiking, and camping than most sweaters. A slim fit pulls this sweater's soft fleece closer to your body for more comfort, and it's easier to layer your ski shell or rain jacket over. Patagonia added a 1/4-zip front in case you work up a sweat, and the zippered sleeve pocket secures your valuables.

    • An all-around performer for hiking, climbing, and skiing
    • Better Sweater fabric insulates and manages moisture
    • Soft fleece interior provides additional warmth
    • 1/4-zip front pullover design for easy ventilation
    • Slim fit reduces bagginess for easy layering
    • Patagonia is committed to producing sustainable outdoor gear

    Must have

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is one of my favorite pullovers. I've always been a fan of Patagonia because of their great quality products. I went a size up in this style because I found the sleeves run a little bit small on me - other than that it fits great. I use this to layer when I'm snowboarding and it keeps me really warm!

    Better (Outfit) Sweater

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

    This pullover (esp the neutral colors) instantly takes your more casual looks and makes them work/dinner appropriate. MAGIC! True to size if you like your pullovers more fitted. If you want the saggy pullover/leggings/boots outfit, I'd upsize.

    The Patagonia Better Sweater is a must-have for every single person in your family!! They're great to just throw on to keep warm on a chilly Fall day and will be epic for the Winter. I bought a size small and am 5'6, 130 lbs - it's a bit snug but it works. They do stretch out a little bit after wearing them a few times.

    I bought this as a gift for my girl, she almost teared up cause it is so beautiful lol. She loves the Oatmeal color, I own this in the Mens version and have nothing but great things to say about it. You can put it through the wringer and it still looks brand new. It is perfect as a layer for skiing or a cold windy day- but also is a perfect sweater to wear on the exterior. Normally Patagonia sweaters are baggier through the arms but this is perfect. The zippers are smooth, and it is easy to take off and put on (which can be difficult with some pullovers)
    I have nothing bad to say, 10/10. Well done Patagonia!

    Mom loves it

    I bought this for my mom after getting the full zip for myself and she's just as stoked on hers as i was for mine. The pullover option has a great fit and is really comfortable she says. Thinking of getting one for myself now!

    I loved my better sweater so much that bought a his and hers set for my parents for Father's/Mother's Day. Love the feel, fit, the quality, and most of all to support an awesome company like Patagonia.

    The name for this jacket speaks for its self. Just like what many others have already stated about this product, its amazing, warm, soft, and is truly a must have.

    They've done it again with another one of their pieces. One of their best yet for casual wear and as a midlayer as well.

    Love the Material

    I love this sweater! I also have it in the full zip. The material is so soft, but looks a little dressier than most fleeces. It is great layer, I have even worn it skiing. The fit is very flattering with a longer fit and slightly fitted at the waist. This fleece runs true to size.

    Love it!

    I originally bought this for a trip where I needed something warm to wear every morning but only had limited space for packing. It was perfect! It's super comfortable on chilly mornings.

    Warm, Comfortable, and Sexy

    This is the perfect option for cold nights out on the town. Here in Salt Lake, it's usually in the 20-30 degree range at night - which makes it difficult for me to choose the right eye catching outfit when bar hopping and such on the weekends.

    The quarter zip on this sweater gives me lots of options for different occasions. I can wear it to work and have it mostly zipped up, and then head straight to downtown and just zip it down a little more with a cute push up bra and I have a perfect warm outfit that's still sexy.

    Part of me wishes it had hand pockets, but the other part of me is not a fan of the Patagonia Re-Tool Pullover which has hand pockets because I think they make the jacket look super awkward, so I just suck it up and put my keys and phone in my jean pockets and keep my hands occupied with holding drinks or crossing my arms instead.

    This sweater is honestly significantly warmer than I thought it would be. Definitely worth the price.

    I will say that I'm happy with the small I bought, but I do like my clothes a little more snug fitting - plus I don't wear any other shirt under this when I wear it.

    If you're looking to use it more like a jacket/sweatshirt and have similar dimensions to me, I would probably size up to a medium.



    PS here's a pic of me in the sweater with my new pup - she gives the sweater two paws up, a big tail wag, and a couple of puppy kisses too.

    I bought this for my Girlfriend and this is what she had to say: "I'm 5'6" and 120lbs, usually in between a small and medium size. I got the medium so that I can use it for layering. It fit me perfectly. It is extremely comfortable and warm. My only complaint is that I wish it had hand warming pockets."

    A must have!

    This was a gift for my girlfriend and she absolutely loves it. I purchased the birch white for her. She wears it for a mid layer while skiing and also for everyday use. Patagonia makes high quality products and this is no exception.

    hands down the best

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

    Got this for my mom because she loves Patagonia and wanted a great looking sweater. It made sense to go with the item. She says it feels great and keeps her warm!

    Got this sweater for my sister and my Mom loved it so much she wanted one too! My sister is about 5'8" and I got her the large and my Mom is closer to 5'6" so I went with the medium for her. Both fit spot on and they are really happy with them.

    Go to pullover for the winter!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I love this fleece lined pullover! I pretty much live in it all winter long. Because it is fleece lined all you need is a t-shirt under it and it keeps you very warm. It does fit a little snug so if you like your pullovers to fit a little looser I would go a size up

    Quality Sweater

    I received one of the snap T-Fleece sweaters as a gift and I am happy with it but I wanted one with a little different material so I purchased this one. I absolutely love it. It's very comfortable and fits perfect. I got a Medium because I like my sweaters fitting loose. It fits just the way I like it. Very soft and warm! Cant wait to use it on the river flyfishing.

    Better sweater

    I just order my first Patagonia better sweater 1/4 zip on sale. I bought a medium. I'm 5'9", 36B size 8. Size m is perfect. Slim fit but not at all tight. It's so very cozy and comfy like a hug. Im wearing a silk long underwear top underneath it right now. I have long arms and the sleeve length is perfect. The length is perfect too. I'm not crazy about this raw linen color. I really hoped it would be a white linen like the the trim on it's sleeves. The color looks like a dingy white. I like the cozy feel of it enough to order another color. I know I'll get a lot of use out of this one because I don't want to take it off! Patagonia clothing is great. You should order one if you're debating.

    Unanswered Question

    I live in Japan. when i order, can you send to Japan? and how long and how much?
    regards,

    I am 5'7" , 135lbs with an athletic build. Would you suggest a medium?

    Hey Lyn, I am a similar size and would say a Medium would be a good fit if you wanted to layer with the sweater but if you are looking for a more snug, fitted piece the Small would be the better option. If you have any further questions feel free to reach out and give me a call. My number is 8012044694 and my email is kswistak@backcountry.com

    Looking at this sweater as well as the full zip. I'm about 5'5"-5'6" and around 110 lbs. Slim and slightly lanky. Any thoughts on XS or S?

    I'm 5'0" around 110 lbs and I got a small and it fits perfectly. It's not tight and I can wear a shirt underneath it but it's not awkwardly baggy! The length falls perfectly at my hips and I can bend over without my bum hanging out! Hopefully that gives you some perspective!

    I'm 4'10 and 105lbs and got an XS. The length is a little long for me (but is nice to wear with leggings!) as well as the arm lengths... other than that it fits fine! I would say if you plan on really piling layers under it, go with the Small. You could get an XS if you maybe plan on just wearing a tank or thinner top underneath. Hope this helps some!
