Better Sweater Fleece Jacket

When the leaves start to fall and the temperatures begin to take a dive, it's important to have a trusty fleece to get you through the cold months. The Patagonia Better Sweater Fleece Jacket is a cozy everyday fleece that'll join you on autumn hikes, aprés ski sessions, and all of your everyday activities. From the office to the mountains, this Patagonia staple keeps you toasty warm thanks to its soft inner fleece, which now features an entirely recycled construction. The sweater-like outer fabric provides a clean and casual look, and the full-zip design lets you vent how you need to if you start to warm up throughout the day. This full-zip jacket also offers more storage than the pullover Better Sweater, with two zippered hand pockets and a convenient chest pocket to keep your everyday essentials securely tucked away.

  • Classic Patagonia fleece to keep you warm through fall and winter
  • Recycled polyester fleece offers super toasty warmth in cold weather
  • Raglan style sleeves provide easy mobility on chilly day hikes
  • Zippered pockets keep your everyday items safely stashed
  • Flat seam construction helps prevent chafing as you move
  • Full-zip design makes it easy to ventilate and change up layers
  • Stretchy cuffs and hem maintain their shape over time
  • Offset shoulder seams create more comfort under backpack straps
  • Item #PAT02Y3

Awesome classic look

True to size

Quite warm as long as you have a wind resistant layer. This fleece is built like a knitted sweater so it's only major downfall is that wind cuts straight through. The look and cut is a combo of classic and athletic and it's become a common jest that the better sweater is the new white coat because so many medical residency programs buy these for their residents (looks great with a dress shirt and tie).

Wrist cuffs are huge.

The elastic wrist cuffs do not constrict the fabric at all. It is as if this was given to a big person who rolled up the sleeves to his biceps permanently stretching out the cuffs so that they will never be at your wrist. Too annoying to wear.

I noticed this seems to be how the company is now making the Better Sweater. I have the hoody version and one of the lightweight versions and the wrist cuffs are big on both. My other Patagonia jackets have smaller wrist cuffs. It's kind of odd

I purchased this jacket because of styling. However because of the type fabric, it is very difficult to put on and take off since it does not have a smooth inside liner. I regret purchasing and would not recommend. I am told after use that pilling is an issue.

I have been very pleased with this sweater. It's soft, comfortable, and very, very warm. The fit is perfect. I may buy another one in a different color. It has been my "go to" sweater since I got it. Works well as an under layer with a gortex jacket in temperatures as low as 45 degrees.

Not a bad jacket but the arms are pretty tight if you put on a long sleeve under it. The jump to XL is too much since they really widen the stomach area. I don't recommend this for folks with wider backs.

Nice look but, ordered a medium, arms were too long and very tight with even just a long sleeve shirt underneath.

I own two for work as do all of my coworkers. It has a reasonable fit and is somewhat warm, but it pills more than any other jacket I've owned. After a couple of washes the better sweater looks old and dingy, especially darker colors. What redeems it slightly is that Patagonia is up-front about it. Unless you are specifically looking for this style of jacket, I would try something else.
