With a sweater-knit face and a fleece interior, the moisture-wicking fabric is spun from heathered yarns dyed with a low-impact process that significantly reduces the use of dyestuffs, energy and water compared to conventional dyeing methods. Smooth polyester jersey trims the wind flap, armholes, hem and zippered handwarmer pockets. Feminine seaming offers a contoured fit. Deep interior drop-in pockets stash beer money. Hip length. Fair Trade Certified™ sewing.

bluesign® Approved Fabric

Patagonia has worked with bluesign technologies since 2000 to evaluate and reduce resource consumption in our materials supply chain, and to assist us with managing the chemicals, dyes and finishes used in the process. bluesign technologies, based in Switzerland, works at each step in the textile supply chain to approve chemicals, processes, materials, and products that are safe for the environment, safe for workers, and safe for the end customers.

In 2007, Patagonia became the first brand to officially join the network of bluesign® system partners.

Any fabric you see that’s bluesign® approved offers the highest level of consumer safety by employing methods and materials in their manufacture that conserve resources and minimize impacts on people and the environment.

Fair Trade Certified™

We pay a premium for every Fair Trade Certified item that carries our label. That extra money goes directly to the workers at the factory, and they decide how to spend it. The program also promotes worker health and safety and social and environmental compliance, and encourages dialog between workers and management. Fair Trade is one of the first tools we’re using at Patagonia to raise workers’ wages, improve their standard of living and move them closer to earning a living wage.

Women's Better Sweater® Vest is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 63.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pills something fierce I bought two of these on sale because my old plain solid-color fleece vests were getting old. These have a knit "sweater" exterior. I thought it would look nice. (The other vests were multi-color and a little hard on the eyes, to me.) Well, the knit sweater part has pilled really badly. It feels awful to the touch. Additionally, the fit is bigger than before. (I bought medium.) The employee told me that Patagonia has increased the size of the women's tops. I'm so sad, because now it gaps out a lot at the arms and it bulges at the abdomen. I'm not happy about the fit at all. A small vest fits in the arms and torso better, but then it's too tight around my hips. Drat. I thought it would be a nicer vest than plain old fleece, but the plain old fleece actually feels and fits better. Sigh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my first Patagonia purchase. This sweater vest is everything I hoped it would be. It is very well constructed, stylish, and I love the two-toned neutral color (raw linen). I normally wear a small, but only medium was still available (at a great sale price). It turns out to run rather small so the fit was actually perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vest!!! I received my first vest as a gift at Christmas a year ago. Like it so much, decided to buy another in a different color! They are slim fitting, but I like that feature and wear an xs! The cool Patagonia logo really helps wearing different long sleeve T's under the vest! Great quality, style and warmth! I could use it to workout in, but like my other Patagonia nano puff vest for that since easier to pack if overheated

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Three Women's Vests Bought three Women's vests about six weeks ago. The style is perfect and I find I wear the black one all the time. The off white and raspberry colors were not quite what I expected & I see why they were on sale. If the raspberry had been more towards burgundy and the white more towards oatmeal I would be more inclined to wear them. Also the 'sweater' outer surface is not as nice as the older fleece model you had fifteen years ago.
