Patagonia better sweater vest, mens

Familiarity:

Size Bought
Small

I ordered and received two Patagonia vests to add to several I owned (purchased previously from other vendors), all size small. One, in brown, was fine, and it fit identically to my previous items. The second (purple) was stretched out of shape and was larger in fit, especially at arm holes and waist. The presence of a tied on tag, along with the condition of the item, led me to suspect that it had previously been worn. Therefore, I do not recommend Backcountry, and I will not purchase from this vendor in the future.

This is a great vest to wear under a jacket as it's super thin and doesn't feel bulky under a jacket. I usually wear a large in this brand but wanted to go a size down and honestly the fit is amazing.

Have had this vest for a year-or-so now. I'm a bit disappointed. The sizing is good ... the vest is warm ... however, the fabric is pileing and the looks of the vest now is not-so-good. Would not re-purchase. Am 6'1' and 185 lbs and the fit is fine.

For the cost, and for the brand, you'd expect it not to start pilling after three wears, but here we are. It's satisfactorily warm in air conditioned offices though.

Really liked the overall fit and size of the vest. I like that is blends in well with office attire and easily works as an extra base layer for the colder days. This is not my first Patagonia product, the sizing works for me.

I have owned this vest for a few weeks . It pills and looks like it is 10 years old POOR Patagonia (recycled ) quality. I own several merino wool vests that only cost a little more BUY WOOL instead of this

Great Vest, all the best parts of the jacket (style, warmth, comfort) without the negative (tight sleeves). I love wearing this over a flannel button up when going out for a drink in cooler weather.

This vest has been worn many times and its durability really stands out. For those cold summer nights (and I can't wait for cold winter days!!), it keeps your body warm unlike many of the other products on the market. I've enjoyed having the layered look when going out, and it has attracted many complements on the classic look. Great job Patagonia, I recommend this to anyone and everyone who is looking for a nice addition to their closet!

Great product that came when promised. The sizing is perfect but wish the vest was a bit longer. I’m 6’1”, 195 lbs and large fits perfectly but would like if it was a bit longer. Perhaps a long version would do the trick.

This vest is my favorite. It's a bit dressier looking than your average fleece vest. I'm tall and it fits me well. It's warm and comfortable.

This is a great looking fleece / vest. The heathered look is very "nice" looking, and would make a great choice to wear out, or wear to the desert. Fit is also spot on and allows for a little layering under or above.
