Performance Better Sweater Fleece Jacket

Climbing outside in fall and spring can be a balancing act between staying warm and staying at the crag. With the Patagonia Women's Performance Better Sweater Fleece Jacket, you're able to cut the chill and climb on without peeling your jacket off. And while you may be thinking that the Performance Better Sweater bears a striking resemblance to its big sister, this jacket differentiates itself with a lighter material and Polartec Power Stretch side panels that wick moisture, dry quickly, and assure unobstructed mobility. The princess seams, drop tail, and slim fit offer a chic look, while the zippered hand pockets secure necessities like your phone or snacks.

  • A lightweight performance fleece for climbing, hiking, or yoga
  • Cozy fleece with stretch panels for warmth and mobility
  • Princess seams and drop tail provide a slimming look
  • Stand-up collar cuts the cold when temperatures get chilly
  • Patagonia creates clothes that meld style with mountain-inspired functionality
  • Item #PAT01I7

I usually don't fit in patagonia stuff because small is too small for my shoulders and arms but medium is too big to keep me warm. This jacket is perfect because it has the stretchy portions on the sides and arms. It is a pretty warm jacket and I love that is has a slightly higher neck. I thought it might be too high but its just perfect.

We live in Northern California and this jacket is a great layering piece. It is super comfortable, provides warmth and is washable. I love it. More polished than a sweatshirt. I bought one for myself and one for my mom.

I got an XS it fit fine in the sleeves and around the hip but it was tight under the arm. Is this made to wear under a coat? I returned because I like to wear fleece as a jacket over a shirt.

Best

The best zip-up fleece I have ever bought. My favorite feature: the wide neck area. Especially on a cold winter day, there's nothing more comfortable than zipping this fleece up and snuggling into this collar. It's heavenly.

I got the color Slone Blue which is a great looking color. The fleece fits snug as most fleeces of this type do. The collar/neck protection was larger than expected, but I am getting used to that

This is a nice slim fitting jacket that can be worn on its own or under a heavier jacket on this really cold mornings.

My girlfriend loves her original better sweater, but it had seen better days after years and years of near daily use. We decided to give this a try, though she was skeptical at first, the second she put it on she was in love. This has a bit slimmer more flattering fit that looks excellent and more feminine than the regular better sweater. The stretch panels on the side offer greater range of motion and breathability for more active use, but do not seem to offer any less warmth for casual use. The stand up collar looks awesome and offers great wind blocking ability. Her favorite feature is the thumbholes and I cant say I blame her! Fits true to size as well.

Bought it for my daughter, she said it’s more comfortable compared to the better sweater and the stretch panels make it easier to manuever in.

Bought this for my mother who was weary of the fit. Once I explained to her it was a performance fit she was happy with the jacket as it is a bit more tight than the regular better sweater line. She is using it as a mid weight layer for snowshoeing or as a jacket for cooler days. Absolutely loves the material and the fit.

I've been wearing my Better Sweater religiously for a few years. I recently tried the Performance Better Sweater because I wanted something that would be better suited to active endeavors. The stretch panels on the side result in a more active. slim fit on this sweater, but it has made backpacking, flyfishing, and hiking much more enjoyable as my layers move with me! The hem is a bit longer in the back to provide more coverage and a flattering fit. If you have arms or shoulders on the more muscular side, this could be a bit tight. I just got back from Moab and this was a great solution to chilly mornings and evenings! I really like the high collar and thumbholes. Looks and feels great! Not as thick as the regular Better Sweater

I was really disappointed when I received this jacket. The material is super thin, the arms are tight (even after I sized up for a cozy feel) and it doesn’t feel like a $150 jacket.

I always loved the classic Better Sweater on others, but found the fit to be bulky and boxy on me. This performance version of the tried and true classic is just what I was looking for. It offers a more tailored cut and is longer than the original. I especially appreciate the tall stand-up collar and the thumb holes at the sleeves. I ordered this in gray and it's just perfect! I ordered my normal size of XS and the fit was great!

I find the original better sweater fits boxy but this has a slimmer fit that looks better on. I would highly recommend this one over the original.

Bought this for my adult daughter who is very particular about fit. She said that it fit well in every way but the collar she found to be uncomfortable when zipped up because it hit her chin. She bought an XS and she is 5'3" and 110 lbs

This is one of my favorite layers from Patagonia. I am extra small in everything they make, but that still usually leaves some room. This fleece actually fits me really well in a form fitting way. I wear this at home, on errands, & in the woods. A really great all around fleece that is nice enough to go from town to camping. I have long arms & the thumb holes are a little too short for me, but that makes the sleeves the perfect length!
