smc snowboarderwrote a review of Patagonia Better Sweater 1/4-Zip - Men's on December 17, 2015
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
The following are the reasons why I am obsessed with my Patagonia Better Sweater:
1. It's incredibly comfy
2. I can be dressed up or worn casually - I use it with Khakis and a dress shirt one day and sweat pants the next.
3. Fit is NEARLY perfect (I have an athletic build and would prefer a slightly tighter bottom, but I can look past that)
4. Durable- I've worn it 2-3x weekly in fall-winter months the past two years and the sweater looks as good as the day I got it. It's traveled with me on several camping/backpacking trips to Colorado, Utah and Arizona as well as hikes throughout Wisconsin. Not a single complaint about the stitching, zipper, nada -- it's strait up quality.
5. Great value - I purchased this on sale for $68, and that's unbelievably worth it with the amount I have worn it and the quality it displays.
Overall, I have no complaints about the Better Sweater, just lots and lots of compliments. I am eyeing up sales to make my next purchase of the full zip in another color to make me feel less guilty about wearing the same outfit back-to-back days.
