    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.

    Great Winter Sweater

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Small

    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

    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!

    Perfection

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Size Bought: Medium

    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

    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

    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.

    First Patagonia purchase, I'm in love!

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    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 Sweater

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    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

    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.

    Love

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I love this jacket! Although its a little pricey, I wear it all the time. I pair it with my slacks to work, or even headed to the gym. The only thing is the sleeves (M) and the torso are a little short. I am fairly tall with long arms (6'1'' female) but everything else works great

    Give her her third sweater

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

    She loves this sweater. It is comfy like a sweatshirt but looks more put together. Patagonia is one of the only companies that makes tops long enough for her arms and torso.

    More like best sweater ever!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I love this jacket (especially in birch white), it is great for a fall or spring day. It keeps me warm without making me overheat. I would suggest buying a size smaller which is always a delight. This is a go to in my jacket collection... everyone should own this!

    Wife is warm-Wife is happy

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

    Got this for my wife , she is happy with how durable it is and how heavy it is. She tends to get cold pretty quick so this has been a game changer on keeping her nice and warm, and its stylish!

    Yet, another win for Patagonia!
