gotta return an XXS for a XS because it was super snug but otherwise, love the quality and feel of the sweater

Zipper came un-stitched
We purchased in November and my daughter has worn approx 6 times. The zipper came un-stitched in such a way as to be beyond our ability to sew it ourselves. Backcountry.com referred us to Patagonia repair dept, which requires for us to pay return shipping on their defective product, but repair estimates state 8 weeks minimum, perhaps longer. I would have expected better from a brand that positions itself atop the outdoor gear food chain. Will not purchase Pata-Gucci in the future.

I placed an order on Dec. 2, I was given 2 day shipping. It's now Dec. 13 and I have not received the jacket I ordered. This Company uses OnTrack. I went to REI and bought a jacket there because I'm worried that my order won't be here on time. I used this companies Chat option and was told to call OnTrack. Really I said I didn't place an order with OnTrack I said you call them and get back to me. Apparently they don't do that. According to this company once the merchandise leaves their facility they are no longer responsible. If I could have left 0 stars I would have.. This was my first and will be my only time I purchase from this company.

I was immediately impressed by the weight and thickness of the jacket. I get extra discount from here: coupon-code.info

Nice jacket but sizing way off
Just received my jacket and when I pulled it out I thought it was a child's size. I wear XS everywhere as I have a small upper body frame. I ordered the XS after reviewing the size chart and couldn't even get it to zip up as it was ridiculously small.

Purchased the gray jacket and it’s super comfy, the quality is phenomenal, and well worth every penny.

Warm & cozy
This can be worn to work, or layered for outside wear. It looks nice but is also rugged. The slim fit runs a bit small. Ordered a medium for a 140lbs 5'4" woman and it fits great.

Great sweater, snug fit
I am 5'2", 130lbs and have this in a small full zip and medium pullover. The small is very snug in the arms, making wearing any long sleeve shirts underneath pretty much impossible. Fits great over a short sleeved shirt. Medium definitely has more room and I've mostly worn it over a thin base layer and under a waterproof jacket while snowboarding. Very warm and comfortable. Recommend sizing up if you want a looser (not loose) fit for wearing layers underneath.

True to Brand
This sweater is perfect! It is a fantastic mid layer for the front and back country. It is warm and cozy with fleece on the inside and a nice, non-pilly and formal-appearing exterior. You can dress this sweater up or down. It's my go-to for cold air-conditioned offices or for fall and spring hikes. This is by far my favorite sweater I have ever owned. Fits true to size. I bought a size larger than I normally wear just so I could layer more underneath and I liked the bigger fit better. Another plus is that Patagonia is an incredible company and, after years of loving this sweater, if it ever needs a repair, Patagonia will do that for you!

My teenage neices LOVED these jackets. I bought 3 of them. They were a great fit for them, very warm, and stylish.

Gave this to my mom, it really keeps you warm and the style and fit are great

Warm and Comfy
Got this for my mom for Christmas and she's been wearing it almost every day. She says it's perfect to layer with under her coat, and keeps her warm in the office but not too hot. The flexibility in the sleeves has been another love as well.

All time favorite
My girlfriends previous better sweater had seen better days after probably 7 years of heavy use. There was no question as to what to replace it with and this one stepped in and took its place without missing a beat and is now a regular in the rotation again. Soft to the touch, very comfortable, and most importantly nice and warm! Flattering/feminine fit without being overly tight. The shadow blue looks great in person and has more of a blue/green hue to it than the picture shows in my opinion. Its very unique and she loves it! Fits true to size. Typically a medium in most tops and this fit perfect.

Great quality and beautifully made

I bought this jacket for my mom and she loves it. It does fit a little small. She wears a small in most things but the medium fits perfect for her. My mom wears this jacket everywhere and is warm and stylish!

I can't stop wearing this
By far my favorite sweater to wear and I think everyone knows because I wear it ALL THE TIME. It's perfect in every way - it holds it's shape, it's comfortable, it's light enough to layer and substantial enough to keep me warm. I have the new Pelican shade and it's beautiful!

Go-To Ski Sweater
I love to wear this sweater when I go skiing! Easy on-off since it is a full-zip. I wear it with my thermals under and then if I get too hot (which, if you wear this under an insulated ski jacket you will be nice and toasty) I just take this one off. So comfortable and cute, super durable. I have had this sweater for 2 years and it still looks like new!

Can't go wrong
Perfect for the fall weather days

Great Fall and Mild Winter Jacket
Very comfortable and soft. Perfect warmth for a California type winter. Fitted in the waist, sleeves and overall length is long without being excessive. The Dark Currant colorway is a nice, rich wine color that is noticeable without popping too much

Curious how are the sleeves on this jacket? I have long arms and want them to fit longer. Thanks!
November 9, 2019
The sleeves are a standard length, not long but not short.
