    This sweater is better.

    Long gone are the days of moth-bitten woolen sweaters that are beyond repair: say hello to the Patagonia Women's Better Sweater Jacket. This warm fleece offers you the best of both worlds with its sweater-inspired knit and fleece interior, which is equal parts cozy and durable. Additionally, this bluesign approved fabric is spun with heathered yarns and dyed using a low-impact process that ultimately reduces the use of dyestuffs, energy, and water (in comparison to conventional dyeing processes). A stand-up collar prevents brisk winds from permeating your core warmth, while the princess seams and raglan sleeves offer unimpeded mobility—making the Better Sweater ideal for just about all activities. Meanwhile the bevvy of pockets keep all of your small necessities close at hand and secure. So whether you're weeding the garden, climbing with friends, or simply taking a walk downtown, the Better Sweater Jacket assures steadfast style, comfort, and versatility.

    Actually is Better

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    A must-have! Great layering piece of wonderful on its own. I wear it skiing, camping, and around town. Great to wear under a vest and very warm. I was hesitant about a full zip because I'm more of a 1/4 zip person, but I think a full zip is best for this piece. Looks presentable enough to also wear to a casual dinner or work environment. The bottom of mine has slightly begun to curl up and it has gotten a little bally through washing it. However, you can use a tool and remove the balls if you would like.

    Perfect Everyday Sweater

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    I love this sweater. It has a good fit, not to loose, but not to tight and it super comfortable. This sweater keeps you warm and is great for everyday wear or as a layering piece.

    Have 3 and tempted to make it 4

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    While this jacket does run a bit big and can feel boxy sometimes, I absolutely love it. It is so warm and versatile, pockets are large enough to hold a phone or wallet, and it goes with everything. My first one I washed and dried after every other wear and it has started to pill. The other two I don't wash as frequently and don't dry and they have held up great.

    Warm but not for me

    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'3"
    • Weight: 132lbs

    I ended up returning this item- I love Patagonia but this fit was just not for me. It made me look boxy in areas and the zipper placements felt awkward on my arm/ made the fabric bulge. My normal size is a medium but I ordered a small (I lost my old one, navy blue/small about a year ago), but I decided to return it.

    Great Winter Sweater

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    Really warm and cozy. I usually like jackets with hoods, but this one is great with just the collar. The pocket on the sleeve is just big enough for an iPhone 5 or 6se, which is convenient for using with headphones or when you don't want to carry a bag around with you. I've washed it several times and haven't had an issue with it pilling, possibly because I hang dry it most of the time.

    Better Sweaters for life!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: XS
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 110lbs

    This is my 3rd better sweater...I'm a little obsessed. They're such great quality that I can't help but get another one when a fun color comes out! These are on the 'relaxed' fit side so I'd size down. They start to pill after several washes, but overall they hold up great. Love them!

    Great Jacket!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'2"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    Prefect for spring weather in Maine! Ordered size Small, fits true to size! Will buy more colors.

    Perfection

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'3"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    I am 5'3" and 135 lbs. medium fits me perfectly.
    This jacket is perfect for early spring and late fall and all those in-between days.

    Best Material

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    I love this sweater! I also have it in the half zip. The material is so soft, but looks a little dressier than most fleeces. It is great layer, I have even worn it skiing. The fit is very flattering with a longer fit and slightly fitted at the waist. This fleece runs true to size.

    Between sizes

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Size Bought: Small and Medium
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 140lbs

    I ended up getting two of these for christmas by mistake and now have a small and a medium. I prefer the fit of the small but I can only wear it with a really light weight shirt so that it doesn't feel snug. The medium is slightly too big and feels sloppy around the waist. While the fit isn't perfect, I still wear this jacket almost everyday. It works really well as an extra layer under my rain jacket.

    love patagonia

    • Size Bought: small
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 120lbs

    So warm and soft! I got a small, which is the size I normally wear and it fits well. I picked up the hemlock green and love the color. However, it is lighter in person than it looks on the screen.

    First Patagonia purchase, I'm in love!

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 148lbs

    I bought a medium and it's perfect! I work in a hospital so I love the warmth but also comfort of this jacket. Not too baggy with just a scrub top but would feel comfortable in layers too!

    Great Gift!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Weight: 150lbs

    I got this sweater as a gift for my mother, and she total really loves it! I got her a size larger than what she normally wears to use it as an outer layer.

    Nice Sweater

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

    Gave this as a Christmas gift and the feedback I got was that it fits nice and is really warm. Patagonia always makes a solid product!

    Great Sweater

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

    I purchased the sweater and I have zero regrets. It fits great and I have a medium/larger build and (it fits very similar to a medium Columbia if that helps at all). I'm from Wisconsin so it's great for fall or warmer winter days, or to even wear under a jacket as another layer if you tend to run colder. It's very soft inside and out and I have received a lot of compliments on the color too!

    2016 Better Sweater is different

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: small
    • Height: 5'3"
    • Weight: 120lbs

    The Better Sweaters have been really nice. They're soft & relatively warm (for not being wool). They look nice & Patagonia makes them in many colors to cater to many tastes. There are roomy pockets & one on the sleeve (women's version). The women's version are more tailored. They make the men's in an XS, so for women like a looser fit, this is the way to go. The accessory pocket is then on the chest.

    I've had Better Sweaters pre-2016 & the current version seems to be made with slightly less quality. I think the women's is slightly larger, size for size. The heather pattern is slightly cruder. The fleecing on the inside is also not as refined. The zipper pulls are not as nice, either. But, if you didn't know any better, it's still a good product.
