    Better Sweater Fleece Jacket

    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.

    Great fleece

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Height: 173'0"
    • Weight: 77lbs

    Nothing to complaint, fabric is really good, a lot of options regarding color, and it will keep you warm,

    Color Difference

      I purchased the shadow blue color, but upon seeing the product, the color is quite different that what is shown in the picture. I even checked twice if I had made any mistake in buying the color, but upon review, I did purchase the right product and the right product was received by me.

      Looks great, lasts long

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 6'3"
      • Weight: 190lbs

      My husband just retired his 5 year old Better Sweater zip up and upgraded to this one with the chest pocket. It's a nice warm fleece, that lasts forever and you can wear on a hike or to work. Highly recommend!

      Great Pullover

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 5'11"
      • Weight: 155lbs

      I purchased the pullover for myself because I liked it. This pullover is warm and I like the navy blue color. I am not a huge fan of the collar, it can be itchy at times. It does fit true to size. This is a wonderful product and would make a great gift as well.

      Dad finally has a nice daily fleece!

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

      Bought this for my pops for Christmas and I am so happy to be giving him something that is high quality and comfortable. I don't feel like I need to write a massive review because so many people have such great things to say about this fleece! I agree.. it's fantastic!

      Very Happy

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: L
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 200lbs

      I am usually between a large and XL (most shirts and sweaters are XL) but the Large was the way to go on this one. Fits perfectly. Not too tight in the chest or shoulders.

      Great About Town Fleece

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 5'11"
      • Weight: 224lbs

      Solid jacket keeps me warm in cooler temperatures, wind passes right through it so not great on windy days. While I've put true to size in the fit, that pertains to the trunk, this jacket tends to run pretty small in the arms with it not leaving a whole lots of room for layers underneath. That said I pretty much only use this jacket when I'm going out around town and don't have the need to layer at those times. The jacket looks great, clean cut and depending on the color selected fairly classy, I would have no issue where this to a nice evening out.

      Not comfortable

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 5'9"
      • Weight: 165lbs

      Looks good but not very comfortable. Sleeves are tight and I’m not a big guy. It’s tiresome to wear. Also there’s a big seam down the sleeves. They don’t sew them flat like Patagonia of past. I have an older one which is very comfortable but not this.

      Looking Good

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

      My husband bought this and loves it. Wears it for everything - a night out, a fall hike, housework etc...
      Another classic, high-quality piece from Patagonia.

      Husband Loves It

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 6'3"
      • Weight: 190lbs

      I don't understand the negative reviews. This is a good lightweight jacket. My husband says it keeps him warm but is also breathable and doesn't find himself having to take it off too frequently throughout the day like with his other jackets and sweatshirts. It's soft and well made. He is a tall guy with long arms and the Large fits hims perfectly. He has had no complaints.

      Great Gift

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

      I gave this jacket to a friend of mine who had been looking for a jacket for the chilly late fall temps. Color looks just as you would expect and it is a comfy jacket. A great article for layering. He says that he is confident that he will use the jacket throughout ski season on those colder days when he will need good layer underneath. It is a very versatile jacket that will work for any occasion.

      Sharp and Sustainable

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'11"
      • Weight: 165lbs

      I ordered a size medium in the Patagonia better sweater with the intention of using it around town and in the office. The item fit true to size and the "stonewash" color looks as advertised. This layer pairs well with collared shirts to give a professional yet comfortable look. The materials used provide warmth and temperature regulation so you can stay comfortable walking from the parking lot in the morning to staying cool in the office. You can also feel good knowing you are wearing an ethical brand and one of Patagonia's more sustainability made items. If you are looking for a warm layer that provides a combination of functionality and appeal, this item is for you.

      Don't waste your money

      • Size Bought: XXL
      • Height: 6'
      • Weight: 240lbs

      Jacket is very light weight , I have T shirts that are mad of heavier material. The cuffs on the arms are way to big and the elastic or the lack of will not keep the sleeves up around your wrists. For a jacket that retails for 139.00 it is a big disappointment.

      Unhappy - poor fit

      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: large
      • Height: 6'2"
      • Weight: 195lbs

      Was really excited to get this jacket, but feel like I got a defective one: arms were way too tight and the whole mid section was sloppy and floppy. No real form to the jacket, collar a little too long, and no kind of fit around the stomach. A disappointment. At 6'2" 195 lbs large is always my go-to size but this one just didn't seem to fit right at all.

      Elegant in every detail

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: M
      • Height: 6'1"
      • Weight: 146lbs

      That's my first Patagonia full-zip sweater and every stitch and lining is of great quality, not to mention comfortably put pockets. This thing really looks and feels premium, worth every dollar spent.

      My husband loves it!

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XL
      • Height: 6'3"
      • Weight: 190lbs

      I bought this sweater as a gift for my husband. It's an excellent wardrobe piece - it's both super functional for colder weather but very stylish and professional looking for work. He's already asking me for another one in a different color!

      Unanswered Question

      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)
