    Nice jacket but sizing way off

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: X Small
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 115lbs

    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.

    Warm & cozy

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    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

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'2"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    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

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

    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!

    Love Patagonia

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Large and Medium
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 130lbs

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

    Warm and Comfy

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

    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

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    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.

    Awesome jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: m
    • Weight: 120lbs

    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

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Extra Small
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 115lbs

    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

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

    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!

    Great Fall and Mild Winter Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    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

    Year round use

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

    I gave this as a gift, and here is a review:

    This is the perfect jacket for year round use! Just the right warmth for those cooler summer nights, wear a long sleeve underneath it in the spring/fall, and use it as a layer for the colder months! Great fit to wear while active, days at the office, or nights on the town.

    A must have for cold weather days!

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

    I bought this as a gift for my friend's birthday two weeks ago and she's worn it every day since. The sweater is a timeless Patagonia piece. It's super durable, so it's handling the excessive wear really well. My friend raves about being able to wear it to the office as an outer layer and on cold morning hikes in the PNW as a mid layer. The fabric insulates the wearer from windy days extremely well and the breathability is comparable to wool pieces.
    I highly recommend the Better Sweater to anyone that wants a functional layer to keep them warm and to anyone that wants to enjoy the benefits of a durable outdoor piece without looking like they're wearing outdoor gear.

    So cozy and comfy!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    I love this! It was my first ever purchase of a Patagonia jacket. I will warn that it does run small. I have always been a size a Medium in everything, so that's what I originally ordered, and it was uncomfortably tight. So I ordered a large and it fits much better. Other than the sizing though I highly recommend!

    Better Indeed!

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

    I gave this as a gift, here's what they had to say:

    I’ve been thinking about purchasing a Patagonia sweater for a long time and finally settled on the full zip. I love the color and the zipper on the arm. Great for morning runs with the dogs.
