    Just what your innards needed.

    Pair the Patagonia Men's Better Sweater Vest with a hot drink after a cold powder day and you'll be set to kick back and let your tired muscles relax as you recap the day at your favorite post-ski hang. Patagonia crafted this vest from its Better Sweater material, which consists of a sweater-knit face and soft, fleecy soft interior for warmth and comfort.

    Due to it comfort-first design the Better Sweater makes an ideal companion for around-town wear, but that's not to say its uses are limited to the confines of city streets and mountain towns. In fact, Patagonia equipped the vest with offset shoulder seams to keep the vest comfortable when wearing it with a backpack, and it gave the vest a flat-seam construction to reduce bulk and minimize chafing when worn on its own or layered under a shell on the mountain.

    • An all arounder for everyday wear in town and in the backcountry
    • Sweater-knit fleece exterior dyed with low-impact practices
    • Soft and fleecy interior increases warmth and comfort
    • Elastic bound armholes and hem help to retain body heat
    • Flat-seam construction minimizes bulk and reduces chafing
    • Offset shoulder seams ensure comfort when wearing a backpack
    • Patagonia's regular fit is neither slim or oversized
    • Item #PAT00WX

    Needed a better looking "fleece" vest

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: S
    • Height: 5'04"
    • Weight: 145lbs

    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.

    Worth Every Penny

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    This was a great buy! Fits true to size and looks great dressed up or dressed down, super warm and I really like the feel of the material!

    My Brother & Dad Loved It!

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

    Bought this vest for both my brother & dad as Christmas gifts. They absolutely loved it! It also came super fast, arriving the next day! Would definitely recommend this for any man in your life!

    Dad Loves It

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

    This was a birthday gift for my Dad, who has now said he wants it in every other color. He wears it to work over a button up or more casually around town. Super warm and fits true to size.

    Buy wool

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: L
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 195lbs

    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

    Stylish and Warm

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 224lbs

    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.

    Patagonia Vest

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    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!

    Patagonia better sweater vest

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 195lbs

    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.

    My favorite vest

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'4"
    • Weight: 210lbs

    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.

    Great Fit

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 6'5"
    • Weight: 210lbs

    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.

    Better or best?

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

    Gave this to my dad as a gift. He loves it. Pairs well with most of his wardrobe and it adds just enough warmth. Plus, its from Patagonia. How can you not like that?

    Best Vest

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    What makes a vest the best? Is it durable when you put it through a vest test? Or perhaps the vest fits well around the chest. Nonetheless, this blessed vest will ensure you're the best dressed guest on any quest. Whether you're heading west with your vest or even feeling a little pressed to take a rest I can assure you that you won't be stressed with the softness and durability of this here vest. You'll be impressed with this vest I must attest for at it's crest you can't protest that this vest is indeed one of the best.

    My favorite vest

    The Better Sweater vest is the vest that i choose to wear while either out and about or in need of another layer when skiing/hiking/etc. I typically run a little warm and try not to wear too many layers. This vest not only looks sharp, but is also a great piece to have in order to warm up. I strongly recommend the vest!
