Additional Information on Size and Fit

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Medium
  • Height: 5'8"
  • Weight: 160lbs

Wanted to contribute to sizing information about this item. I returned a medium as it ran large, even with two light layers on underneath, the vest was baggy. I could easily overlap the zipper portion by approximately 4" to get the fit I wanted.
For those trying to figure out fit and avoid the $6.99 return fee: I'll add these additional details. While fit, I wouldn't classify myself as skinny (size listed below). I wear 30" - 31" waist pants. I typically wear a small -- jackets, vests, fleeces (pull-over and zip) -- which can run tight to correct fit. Suit jacket size 38s - 40s.
Reading that everyone marked this item as true-to-fit and a small in the sizing chart listed 35" - 37" and a medium was listed as 38" - 40', I decided to purchase the medium.
Hope this info is useful.

I bought my dad a Patagonia Better Sweater Vest as a gift a few months ago, and after hearing from my mom that he pretty much never took it off, decided to grab the Patagonia Lightweight Synchilla Snap-T Fleece Vest for him as well. You can never have too many vests, right? Super cool style and the Sediment color is awesome in person. Warm, but still lightweight enough for daily use.

I was looking for a lightweight fleece vest that I could wear for a variety of things and this fit the bill. Very light, but warm.

Very comfortable and stylish

This was a first time purchase for a vest and wow was it worth it! The interior is light and full of mesh- perfect for an under layer and also to go out in! Color was true to the pictures and I can't wait to wear it all winter long!

Good, until I dried it

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Love the vest, we put it in the dryer (the instructions did not tell us to avoid this) and the zipper melted. Luckily getting a replacement. Will be hang drying from now on.

How hot is your drier? Synthetics typically are dried on the delicates or medium setting, and should not be subject to high heat for this exact reason. As is Patagonia tradition though, to cut down on microplastics entering our waterways, only wash these when they are actually in need of a wash and not just because you think they need a wash, and if possible spot treat any problem areas to prolong the life of the garment. Or just never wash them! And always, always consider air drying if possible to cut down on unnecessary waste! Drying is the #1 reason your clothes break down! Nothing makes you look worse than using the dryer in Moab on a summer day, save those quarters for the arcade! (Pro tip, just throw your laundry in the Room of Doom and pick it up clean on the next lap of West Water!)

Cute and warm!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this vest for fall and winter layering . It provides the perfect amount of warmth for cool fall days, and is tight enough to put a jacket over it. I'm normally an XS in clothing bust 34B but I normally buy small in Patagonia for outerwear in order to have room for layering. However I ended up returning the small I ordered for an XS, because the small was just too baggy (I'm very petite). XS still leaves plenty of room for a sweater underneath the vest. Last note, this vest has surprisingly big pockets, which is very unusual for women's clothing, so that's a super bonus, I can keep a card holder, phone, and more without feeling bulky.

I have two the these in different colors and I want more! Im a vest guy and I love my Retro X vests for colder weather, but these are perfect for that in between weather and transition great for indoor wear as well. I'm indoor and outdoor all through the day and I never take it off! The sizing of these vests are true to the Lightweight Synchillia Snap T. It's basically the same thing but without the sleeves.
