Men's Better Sweater® 1/4-Zip is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 163.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from aight cozy and warm if you're inside, but man wind/cold blows right through this thing. I know, I know...its a sweater, but for how thick and bulky it is, im surprised at how poorly suited it is even for a stroll around mu neighborhood on a foggy day. a wool or even cotton sweatshirt would perform much better for this. But, its lofty so if you are layering a jacket over it you will be roasting.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good concept, colors are way off I ordered the filter blue sweater several weeks ago, and it is a much darker shade (closer to cobalt blue) than what is shown. I emailed customer service about this and the said they checked the warehouse, and agreed that the colors are misrepresented on the website. The service rep said she'd put in a request for updated/upgraded photos, but since that still hasn't happened, I wanted to caution other customers. I can't speak for every color, but the blues in particular are noticeably darker than what is pictured (I also ordered the Big Sur blue, which in reality is closer to a navy blue). In terms of fit, it's a comfortable fleece. I'm a 5'8", 135 lb female and the XS fit me really well. I found the arms too tight in the women's fleece so decided to try the mens. I still think the sleeves are a little tight; while I'm an avid athlete and have a lot of muscle in my triceps, I'd think there would be a bit more room considering that it's a men's sweater. It might work for some/most people, but something to be aware of if you're particularly muscular in the arms. The look is very sharp, male or female. I imagine most guys could either dress it up or down. My brother has a navy blue version and loves it, he can wear it to work as an attorney or out in town. For women it looks great with boots in the fall or even just around the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best sweater ever This is really the ultimate pullover sweater for winter (with a warmer underlayer) or spring/fall (with a t-shirt under).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sweater, but varies in size across colors! This sweater is stylish and warm. It makes carrying a pack incredibly comfortable and is well designed. Pilling happens incredibly easy on the lower back due to carrying a pack all the time... I don't think this should happen. The sizing is also inconsistent... I have tried on the same sweater in different colors and they all fit differently. The one I own now oddly fits tightly around my stomach, and I workout regularly. I tried on another one at the store to compare (in the same size) and it did not do that.... I recommend trying it on in the store to make sure it fits the way you would like. The regular fit does not seem to be true across all products. So if you have a raincoat you like in a regular fit, it is not a guarantee that the fit of the better sweater will be the same. It could be bigger or smaller than expected. Also I wish the wrist cuffs were a little tighter, they are relatively big for my wrists.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Other reviews don't lie. This sweater works great as part of your layering system, relaxing by the fire or sitting in the office. Very comfortable and cut perfect. Has become my favorite fleece.
