Long time favorite
My first synchilla jacket, bought maybe 15 years ago, was also the first fleece item I owned, and it changed my mind about wearing pretty much only natural fiber clothes. I still wear that first synchilla, though it is covered with small burn holes from backing up too close to many camp fires. I love the roomy fit, especially in the sleeves, becaus... Read Moree I often wear my jacket over a couple of light layers, including a light weight insulated jacket. I wear the jacket hard, in tough conditions, and it has been one hardy, trusty garnet.
Material sheds an incredible amount, I love Patagonia products but this seems unacceptable. You can literally put your hand through the fabric and pull away a ton of "fuzz". Wore on a business trip and had an embarrassing amount of shedding on my dress shirt. Received as a gift for Christmas, put through the wash/dryer a couple of times h... Read Moreoping to fix the issue but it is still shedding. Will need to figure out how to return. Product is also extremely baggy and loose. I would recommend sizing down.

Nice quality but image was different online
The quality of this jacket is nice but the color of the gray looks very different online than in person. I wouldn’t have ordered it if I knew.

Warm, Comfortable Outer Layer
The Ms Classic Synchilla Jacket is my new favorite outer layer (yes, I wear this almost like a winter coat)!!! It goes right over a t-shirt or long sleeve without issue and even has room for a little more WHILE being slim, fashionable and not uber wide like some other pieces I have had. The Ms Classic Synchilla Jacket is warm and provides what I n... Read Moreeed while out on a stroll or at the dog park on a Sunday morning a few hours after the sun rises. I have not used it for "still" activities - like hanging out in the backyard/at a campsite - but I imagine it will be just the same. Overall, I have had this for less than two months AND it just started getting cold in Denver SO... I will have to update the review with more
Sleeves a little long.
Per the usual It seems like. Every M I’ve ordered has longer than usual sleeves. Fit on the body and through the shoulders is great.
Hi Ricardo! Thank you for your feedback on this item! We're sorry to hear the sleeves are a bit long for you. If you'd like to initiate a return or exchange, you are welcome to do so [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return).
I like it
I like it (Fall 2018) very much. Plush, feels great and looks good, too. At 5'11", 182#, and somewhat lean, I find a Large to be boxy, but not to a deal-breaking extent. Hence, 4 instead of 5 stars. The sizing for me means it works better as an outer jacket and not for close to the body. I am glad I got it and look forward to cooler weath... Read Moreer. *Had it been a little less boxy I would readily have given it 5 stars.
Patagonia... just a name!
When North Face came out, years ago, I initially thought it was just a name until I tried it. Then I realized it was more expensive than Columbia, but was of better, long-lasting quality. So, when I first heard about Patagonia I dismissed it as another name, but then decided to give it a shot. I was expecting a much higher quality than the Columbia... Read More fleece I now own. However, upon receiving this fleece in the mail I knew I had made a mistake. The quality is less than that of a $35 Columbia fleece at almost triple the price. On top of that the pockets are netted, so I wouldn't expect them to keep my hands warm if needed. Overall it's an overrated and overpriced product with less quality than that of its competitors. Patagonia may have products that are of good quality, but honestly I don't think I'll ever take the chance again.
Patagonia quality is great
I've owned numerous Patagonia fleece tops over many years. None have ever failed. Zippers, snaps, material will be going strong it seems like forever. I treat them with care, and they have held up over 20 years in some cases. I seldom need to buy anything made by any other company. Great job and many thanks to Patagonia for superior products.
Not bad but NOT wind resistant!
Had a synchilla jacket for many years and it's best for cool temperatures to 50s. It fits true to size and can be worn either as an outer layer jacket in warmer/cool temps or as a midlayer in colder temperatures. You will need a jacket or shell over it to keep warm in wintry temps. The wind WILL CUT THROUGH the jacket which I didn't like ... Read Moreso could never use it even in the winter time as it was 200 midweight fleece which it NOT meant for Cold wintry temperatures. The jacket needs to be longer in length esp. the tail and the fleece will eventually turn somewhat harder over time. It's pricey for what it is even though competitors make similar jackets at better (more affordable!) prices. The jacket needs a waist drawstring!
