Why We Like The Synchilla Lightweight Snap-T Fleece Pullover

An iconic, super warm style that deserves a spot in every closet

"Classic" is an adjective that gets thrown around a lot, but we think few fleece jackets can lay claim to the term as confidently as the Patagonia Synchilla Lightweight Snap-T Fleece. A staple in the Patagonia line for decades, this fleece is a tried-and-true staple on the trail, around town, or at the crag. Its heat-trapping fabric will keep you warm and comfortable wherever you venture.

Built for/Great for/Good for


Made as a casual, cozy midlayer on everyday adventures. Great for mellow winter or shoulder season hikes. Good for indoor warmth that keeps you from cranking up the thermostat.

I read a lot of reviews about sizing before I purchased this sweater. I actually went to a different store and tried on both the XL and XXL. I wear a size 16/18, XL or XXL in womens tops, 5' 6" and 235 lbs, apple shaped. I can wear both an XL and XXL in Patagonia depending on the fit. This sweater does run larger than other Patagonia items. The XXL could easily fit up to a size 2x plus size, probably around a size 18/20, depending on your proportions. The XL fit well, but I kept the XXL because I wanted an oversized fit. As expected with a Patagonia item, this sweater is high quality and very comfortable. I

Great fleece pullover for those cool mornings and nights! Just the right amount of warmth without getting that overheated feeling. Does want to shed a little, but not to where its all over the place. Love the vibrant Canyon print. Reminds me of home in the Southwest.

I have been living in this fleece almost everyday since quarantine. I got it while it was 50% off because I had wanted one for a while and it was a good deal. I was not sure if I should get an XS or S since it does run big, but I decided to get a S and I am glad I did. If you want it more fitted go a size down. I plan on wearing layers underneath and prefer loose clothing. It is the perfect weight for our unpredictable New England spring. One day it will snow and the next day it is 50 and sunny. It is super cozy and comfortable and perfect for staying at home.

I have had an older version of this fleece for years and loved it. I purchased this one in June and have been disappointed. The fleece sheds everywhere, even after 2 washings. I have had it for several months and it looks worse then my old one. Anywhere I wear it, I leave behind little balls of fleece. This is the second Patagonia product I have been let down by in the last few month. What is going on Patagonia? When I but a high priced Patagonia item, I expect high quality.

Thanks for the feedback, Megan!

I debated about spending this much money on a hoodie, but I have absolutely no regrets! It’s soft, it’s warm, it’s obviously high quality, and I love knowing that it’s made from recycled materials!! Don’t hesitate to buy one of these, especially if you find it on sale!

I had been looking for a classic Patagonia item for my first purchase, and I’m glad I chose this fleece pullover! It’s very soft and warm. Suggestion: wash before you wear. I did not, and my shirt underneath was covered in fuzz afterwards. Once washed, problem solved. Also, I am 5’8” 158lbs athletic build, I buy most thing in a Large because I don’t like things tight. I bought this in a Large and I could’ve probably comfortably gone with a medium. But I like my jackets/pullovers a little oversized and so this fit perfectly for my liking. It’s a great timeless item. My mom even has this same pullover from the 80s! I do wish it had pockets or a kangaroo pouch of some sort but it’s not terrible that it doesn’t.

I had been wanting one of these sweaters for awhile and am happy with my purchase. It fits pretty loose ( I ordered a medium as that is my usual size) but I am fine with that as it is intended to be a casual sweater for the cottage or outdoor stuff. Its not a heavy fleece so good for layering and the pattern I got was true to the photo's. My only reason for not giving it a five star rating is that I don't love the elasticized waist, it tends to make the sweater bunch a bit so it's not always super flattering.

I tried so hard to love this but the fit is very boxy and unflattering. If you get this, get a more basic color or print. Sadly, I returned it.

This pullover Patagonia fleece is my dream cozy hiking and lounging jacket. It is incredibly soft, and the retro print looks super cool 😎 I have worn it relaxing on the weekends and also on some windy Bay Area hikes, and it is warm but not suffocatingly so. I was wondering if I should go S or M in size, and I chose the S and am happy with it -- I am very muscular but on the shorter size, and the cut of this jacket is just right, with roomier shoulders but sleeves that are long enough. The wrists are not too tight, very comfortable. I also love the contrast details.

I gave the Patagonia Synchilla as a gift, it was a hit. The feedback I received was this jacket is incredibly soft and warm. They said they highly recommend it for anyone looking for a pullover hoodie for fall and winter weather.

This fleece is great! I have issues with pinching around the shoulders/armpit with many tops, but I have not had that issue with the synchilla fleece pullover at all. It is shockingly warm for how lightweight is it and that's great because I want to be able to keep warm while still feeling like I can have a free range of motion and flexibility. The only downside I've found so far is that when I put it on over long sleeves they pull up, which is not a surprise. I guess it's just an awesome fleece, not a quite a magic fleece haha. The small fits me great, runs a little big, but not terribly

I bought this as a gift for my mom, she loves it: She typically wears a medium, but found the small to be the correct size. "I bought the Patagonia dark currant ski pants (which I love) and decided that I wanted a new mid layer top to go with them. I was looking for something “fun” and when I saw this top, it was just what I was looking for. I received it as an early Mother’s Day/birthday present, just in time to wear it on our last ski trip of the season. I love it. It is so soft and warm, and the pattern is “fun” and unique. A ski patrolman told me that he really liked my fleece. Pretty cool, huh? I saw a woman who had a similar Patagonia fleece (different pattern and colors) and she said it is all she ever wears. It’s perfect for wearing with jeans too. I expect to get a lot of use out of it."

It took me so long to make a decision on this fleece. Color-wise, size-wise, and should I/shouldn't I. I was so worried it'd be too small since on the size chart I was borderline medium/large. I have an awkward build as my shoulders, chest, and back are a little more muscular but my stomach isn't flat. HOWEVER. I am SOO happy with my decision. I finally chose a medium (I even inquired with a gearhead if I could return for a different size if it didn't fit) and it is PERFECT. Just slightly baggy (I prefer this VS. a tighter fitting) and so comfortable. The sleeves aren't tight around my wrists and the bottom falls just right at my waist. I am so incredibly happy with my decision.

Fantastic grab and go for warmth

Sub zero temps are no match for this classic. I wear a base layer underneath, I stay warm and dry when shoveling. Unlike others, I fee like it fits true to size, maybe because I have wider shoulders? I highly recommend.

I am 5' 6'' and I weight about 160 to 170. I usually wear small in Northface jackets but Mediums in all my other clothes usually. Do you think I should get a small or a medium?

I am 5'6 and weigh 160 lbs. I have a very long torso and I want this to fit loose and comfortable. Would you recommend a medium or large?

I'm 5'4 and 160 and the medium fit great when I tried it on. Not too tight not too loose.

>Rating:

I am 5'3, around 125 lbs and usually wear a size small in all of my clothes/jackets. I definitely want a comfortable, over sized fit, would a medium be too over sized though?

I would try a small initially since this is a slightly looser fitting piece and you might be swimming in the medium.

What is the center back length of a medium?

If I wear a size large in North Face would I also take a size large in Patagonia?

Hey Ashley, Looks like Patagonia measurements for a size Large are: Chest 38.5 - 40in, Waist 30.5 - 32in, Hip 41 - 42.5in And North Face measurements for Large are: Chest 39-40in, Waist 32-33in, Hip 40-43in Subtle differences there, but I think the Patagonia size Large will work for you!

I typically wear a medium in North Face, but found this to run really large. The medium was swimming on me. I'd for sure size down.
