    A step above the rest.

    As its name suggests, the Patagonia Men's Better Sweater Fleece Jacket is no ordinary sweater. Equal parts technical and urban-friendly, the Better Sweater is constructed with a sweater-knit fleece that provides cozy warmth and wicks away moisture, so you're able to to take to to the hills or the city. Additionally, the bluesign approved fleece material is dyed with a low-impact process that ultimately reduces the use of dye stuffs, energy, and water. Not to mention, the stitching is Fair Trade Certified, so you can feel good about feeling, well, good. The raglan sleeves provide unimpeded mobility, and the flatlock seams assure chafe-free comfort. A bevvy of pockets keeps all of your necessities close at hand, and the stand-up collar doubles down on your protection when the weather takes a turn for the worse.

    Go-To Jacket

    It's no wonder you see many people sporting these; they're great. They keep you warm and are super stylish. Really happy with this purchase!

    Love This!

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

    My go-to sweater when the weather is chilly/cold outside. Plus, I always get compliments on it! I highly recommend getting yourself one of these.

    Quality!

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

    The classic Patagonia Better Sweater can't be beat. Quality material, great fit, awesome to wear on it's own or as under another jacket on colder mornings.

    Would highly recommend!

    great sweater

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 200lbs

    feels and looks great! Thank you back country for great customer service. This isn't a slim fit but it does look nice and true to size.

    Perfect Sweater

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: small
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 160lbs

    The Patagonia Better Sweater is the on of the best tops I own. The fit is excellent and true to size. I can wear this in the fall as my outer layer. I will wear it to work and not feel over or under dressed. Did I mention it's the perfect layer for my ski days? I'll probably buy a few other colors and put them in the rotation.

    A pretty jazzy sweater

      Gave this as a gift for Christmas for a family member and all he talks about with me is how much he loves this jacket. Says its looks good and has a good feel to it. Very rarely takes it off because he likes it.

      Another great piece from Patagonia

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 185lbs

      My husband ordered this to have another piece in his layering arsenal now that we live in blustery Vermont. Typical (great) Patagonia quality, and a great color. The fit is long-ish, and slim.

      Product should be renamed Best Sweater

      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: small
      • Height: 5'11"
      • Weight: 170lbs

      I've had mine for years. I've put it through the wringer and have worn it a lot. It's warm, stylish, and is built to last. What more could you want? Especially from a great company like Patagonia. Runs big.

      Amazing

        I use this under my ski jacket or another shell and it works wonders! It keeps me so warm and it's also very breathable. I've also used it in my marching band practices because Wisconsin fall practices can get pretty cold outside. It is deffinetly worth it to buy. Gonna use this for a long time.

        Soft Fleece

          Great, quality product once again from Patagonia. I sized down due to some of the comments and it's slim fitting but not too tight (5'11" 190lbs and ordered a Medium) YKK zippers work great and are smooth. Jacket is versatile and can be dressed up or down for many situations.

          Awesome all-around fleece

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
          • Fit: True to size
          • Size Bought: Large
          • Height: 6'1"
          • Weight: 240lbs

          This fleece is the best I've owned. I've used this on hikes and camping as an insulating layer, as a pillow on an airplane, at work, around town, and at home. It looks great to go out in or is comfortable enough to lounge in. I basically live in my Better Sweater from October until May.

          I sit right between sizes, so both a Large and X-Large fit me just fine.

          If you're debating this product, don't. It's hands down better than any other fleece I've tried.

          Great Sweater, good jacket

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times
          • Fit: Runs large
          • Size Bought: Small
          • Height: 5'7"
          • Weight: 150lbs

          I got this for free from work as part of a project. The project team ran out of my usual size (medium) because the length of the arms and torso on the better sweater are longer than usual. Everyone who usually wears large took the medium unless they are really tall. I ended up getting a small. The length of the arms and torso on the small are perfect on me. The chest and shoulders seemed a little tight at first (as expected), but the better sweater is after all a sweater. It stretched after the first few wears and now it fits perfectly. By the way, I am 5'7" 150 lbs. For reference, a standard medium t-shirt fits me and a standard small t-shirt is too tight in the shoulders.

          I rate this as a 5 because: 1) I wear it constantly - indoors and out. 2) It has a really cozy warm feeling to it. 3) It looks great. But there is something you need to know before you buy it: It is a sweater, so it does not block wind. Some people say "I wear it in the 40s and it is plenty warm." Personally, I would not say that. Of course I also do not live in a cold climate, so I'm not used to 40 degree weather. Where I live (San Francisco area) it stays in the 60s for most of the year. When the temperature drops into the low 50s and the moist coastal wind starts blowing, it strips the heat right off of you. This sweater does not protect you in that situation. Having said that, this sweater layers like a champ. Put any wind blocking shell over it and I could see it doing well down to the low 50s and even the high 40s. You can also keep it on while indoors up to the mid to high 60s if you are not moving around a lot.

          Overall, I would definitely recommend this unless you have a stocky build or are heavy set combined with not being tall. The cut on this is for tall and/or slim people (in my subjective opinion). Hope that helps.

          I love these

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
          • Fit: True to size
          • Size Bought: Small
          • Height: 5'9"
          • Weight: 145lbs

          I bought one, loved it, bought another. They are fantastic for wearing around my office, which is always curiously cold for some reason. I can wear them with dress pants, or I can wear them with jeans. I get lots of compliments. the only slight negative is that both of them are the same size, S, but they both fit slightly different. the dark walnut fits me a little better than the black one. the black is a little slimmer in the torso.

          what is the difference between this jacket and oakes jacket?
          better sweater is more pricey.. why?

          Unanswered Question

          I am a woman, 5' 7" and weight 158. I am trying to decide what size to buy in a unisex fleece jacket -- medium or small. What would you suggest?

          I'd like to buy this for my husband, but, concerned about the sizing.
          He is 6'4 and 240 (little padding in the mid section).
          He's usually an XL (tall) in jackets/fleece.
          Any thoughts on sizing?


          Thank you!

          Hey Ginger!



          So I would say this runs a bit small. So If your husband normally wears a XL, I would step up to the next size. If this is something that you are nervous about, many customer will order two sizes and return what does not work. ( Since we have free exchanges.. within the lower 48 states that is hehe)
