    Better-er sweater.

    For argument's sake, there's nothing more uncomfortable than climbing in a gym that's both clammy and cold. However, thanks to 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 Fleece Jacket bears a striking resemblance to its big sister, this jacket differentiates itself with a lighter weight 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

    Better!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    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.

    Great buy!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XS

    The sweater has a fitted form flattering fit. It is the high quality you expect from Patagonia. Very happy with my purchase!

    Great Performance Layer

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

    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.

    Better than my Regular Better Sweater!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'2"
    • Weight: 105lbs

    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

    Save your money

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'3"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    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.

    A Better Better Sweater

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XS
    • Height: 5'3"
    • Weight: 115lbs

    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!

    Better than original Better Sweater

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XS
    • Height: 5'6"

    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.

    Almost a keeper

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: extra small
    • Height: 5'3"
    • Weight: 110lbs

    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

    Supes Cozy

    "Very comfortable, great fit, pretty color. The sleeves were long enough for my long arms. Kept me warm under my jacket shell on some snowy days. "

    cute & cozy

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Extra Small
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 120lbs

    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!

    Gift for my wife

    • Size Bought: XS
    • Height: 5'7"

    The performance better sweaters are awesome for keeping you warm without the bulk. I got an XS and it fits pretty good. Could've sized up for a little more room to layer under it, especially in the arms. Overall great piece.
