    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.

    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!

    My favorite Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 6'
    • Weight: 150lbs

    It's the perfect weight for fall and spring and works as a wonderful base layer for cold winters. I ended up buying it twice since I lost my last one at a climbing gym.

    Change of fit from earlier models.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: medium
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 160lbs

    I wore out a better sweater hoody and bought this for a warmer upper with weather changing. My older one was easy to throw on but Pat. has reduced the fit in the sleeves and body are uncomfortably narrow so its hard to put on and I am unable to wear much under the jacket. Disappointed. Patagonia seems to always change item's fit that have been around for years to fit their impression of updated style. If it ain't broke don't change the fit. I see this sentiment in reviews often for their clothes. I am not wearing it much and may sell on a used clothing site.

    A Fall Staple Piece

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    Bought this as a gift for my brother and it has quickly become a staple for him. He is 6' and 180 - I bought a medium and it fits great!

    Comfy Fleece

      Very warm and soft. This fit a little more slim than I was expecting. Worked great keeping me warm under a light rain jacket. Wore this in temperatures ranging from, 35-55 degrees and it was perfect.

      Terrific fleece to keep you warm!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 190lbs

      This fleece not only looks great but it is so comfortable and warm! You can wear it indoors, outdoors, to sleep, etc. It is so warm and lucious!

      Cool for Dads and Non-Dads

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

      I gave this to my father in law and asked him how he liked it. Here is his hilarious, yet genuine response: "I love my Patagonia Better Sweater Fleece Jacket. I am a dad and this helps me look cool. It's great for those shoulder seasons - keeps me warm but not too warm. Also, I can wear it anywhere and because it's Patagonia, people think I am rich. "

      Comfy Fleece

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

      Super comfy fleece, very soft and keeps me very warm. Fits really great, and looks awesome. Can dress it up for a friends wedding, but also at home on a hike or camping.

      comfortable and cozy

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 6'2"
      • Weight: 180lbs

      great fit, good look. high quaility. the wind cuts thru when the blows, and not as warm as i would like. but great for the office!

      Great jacket for multiple seasons & uses

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 170lbs

      Great jacket for multiple seasons & uses. Jacket is very comfortable and warm, but adequate for cooler seasons, but also doesn't overheat in warmer shoulder seasons. It is more boxier and good for layering and bigger torso.

      Comfy jacket

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: Extra large
      • Height: 6'0"

      I got this for my boyfriend who likes it for the most part. He says it's warm and soft, but a little stiff. Also the collar doesn't fold nicely. It will not lay down and bunches up. I've tried hang drying it and that doesn't help. The jacket has held up well, just the collar issue is bothersome.

      Go to fleece!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size

      After seeing all the reviews for this fleece I decided I would give it a shot. Let me start by telling you I don't regret my decision and if anything I should have bought this sooner! Not only does this piece look great but also feels and performs great. I couldn't recommend this any higher as Patagonia like always has knocked it out of the park with the quality and durability you have come to expect!

      Perfect

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 190lbs

      Bought this as a replacement to another fleece zip up I have from another popular brand, that got stained and ripped after years. The fit and finish is superior in all aspects, the fleece itself is softer, and it was actually a bit thicker and warmer than the other brand. I'm upset it I didn't buy this sooner.

      I am 5'10 and 190lbs with an athletic build (size 31 pants). Usually wear clothes more "fitted" as opposed to baggy. Size medium fit me perfectly.

      Stylish Dad jacket

        I bought this jacket for my dad as a Christmas present and this is what he said about it: “I’ve always liked these jackets and was thrilled to finally get one. I think they make everyone look more attractive. The jacket is really warm and the material is nice and soft. Would recommend this jacket to anyone looking for an added sense of style

        Classic

        • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
        • Fit: True to size
        • Height: 5'7"
        • Weight: 125lbs

        I gave this as a gift and now I want one for myself. He loved it. It fit great and will be the perfect throw on for just about anything and everything. You can layer it to head up the mountain or wear it around the town. Let me know if I can help you pick out sizing!

        Great fleece jacket

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Medium
        • Height: 5'7"
        • Weight: 160lbs

        Super warm fleece that you can definitely dress up or dress down, I feel like the fit isn't baggy by any means and allows you to layer with a nice button up underneath. Would highly recommend.

        Great jacket, doesn't look good for long.

        • Height: 5'7"
        • Weight: 135lbs

        Let me start by saying I love the jacket and I love patagonia (have a ton of their gear), BUT this jacket started to look raggedy after a wash or two. It still performs great, but I have never had another jacket/sweater/fleece pill so much and look so worn out so fast.

        Great group

          My sweater came two days after I ordered it. A nice lady also called and confirmed my order details over the phone with me and told me about return and exchange policies. Will be shopping with back country a lot more now that I’ve found it!❤️

          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)
