Patagonia Better Sweater 1/4-Zip Fleece Jacket - Women's


Better Sweater 1/4-Zip Fleece Jacket

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.

Perfect fleece jacket


I’m 5”5 and 123 pounds. I have a long torso. Should I get the small or medium? Thanks, Anna

Hey Anna, Check out the size chart for more info, but another review from someone 5'7" 120lbs purchased a Medium that fits great.


I am 5’4” and 118 pounds. What size would you recommend getting?

Hi Sarah, You can check out the size chart above if you need more info. But this item and most Patagonia products run pretty true to size so you should be good to go with whatever size you normally wear in clothing!


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


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!
