Women's Performance Better Sweater® Jacket is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Professional-looking fleece Definitely size one up. I am an XS and a S is perfect. I love the snug fit, professional (not sloppy) look, and despite other reviews, I think it holds up to washing quite well. Perhaps they dry it too harshly? My dryer is wimpy. Patagonia: please make this is smolder blue, bright tan, or olive green so we women aren't forced to dress like little girls (teals and pinks).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice effort but terrible fit Pros: I like the lighter-weight fleece of this version of the better sweater; I find the better sweater much too warm. I also like the colour combinations available! But I was very disappointed in the performance Better Sweater: (1) The sleeves are super tight -- I'm tall and trim and have no problem with any of my other Patagonia size Smalls (nano puff, down sweater, etc.) but my poor arms actually hurt wearing this one! (2) Much tighter across the chest than the usual Patagonia Small. (3) The collar is very floppy and loose -- it's not the nice and neat collar of the better sweater, or even the men's performance better sweater.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Warm but too narrow in the upper arms There is so much to love about this sweater. I have another one I wore all last winter by itself or with a good waterproof shell when I would walk around our local lake 3-5 days a week. It's also great to wear when stationary- keeps the chill at bay. The style is really flattering, which can be hard to find. Just can't comfortably wear long sleeve shirt underneath. I'm a fit normal athletic build 5'7" 135#. This should fit better in the upper arms!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous I have several better sweaters and micro D's. Love them all. And the performance version is just as good. Feels great and fits perfectly. Had to size up from medium as it fits a little snigger. But it's awesome!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love the fit but not happy This fleece fits great and is warm & cool, but just after 1 day of hiking it began pilling like crazy and looks old and worn now. I'm unhappy with this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good overall fit but tight in the arms The jacket has a good overall fit in the torso. The forearms and the arms are really tight for the overall fit. I"m 5 6" 120lb and I bought a size small. I've never had that issue with any other Patagonia jacket.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The better sweater gets worn fast I hadmy First one for a month and returned it because the fabric would "pill", causing little ears offsbriv. I returned it a spur based a different t one and the same problem occurred. I love the fit. I purchased it for its high performance ability and am dissatisfied.
