I have 5 other Patagonia
I have 5 other Patagonia fleece vests that I love and that fit perfectly. This one is a bit too long and is tight in the hip area, though wearable. It has no stretch at all where it is tight. The armholes are also a bit too big.
We're sorry this vest isn't working as well for you as your other vests, Scott! If you haven't already, please feel free to start your [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) at any time. We want all of our customers to be completely satisfied with their Patagonia products!
Im really happy with this vest. Patagonia is a company that I like to support. Im not a big or busty person, I often wear size small but Im glad I read reviews and opted for medium. It fits comfortably and still cinches in. The silvery gray color matches everything. I wear this under my winter coat for night walks, in my house to stay toasty and ov...

Not big enough
Liked the vest, but the XXL was nowhere big enough for me.
We appreciate your feedback and we're sorry to hear that the fit and sizing didn't work well for you. We're glad you were able to return it and we would love to help you find something else so please don't hesitate to reach out to our Customer Service team. Thanks Nancy!
Wear it almost every day.
These vests are comfy and warm. I wear them almost every day to stay warm at home and save energy. I love that they give me warmth and also easy arm movement. Definitely cute enough casual wear. They do run quite small so I would suggest to order up a size. I normally wear a petite medium or large and the extra large is the right size for me in thi... Read Mores vest.

I have a vest from your company and knowing your sizing runs small I ordered XL but this vest is really small.
Hi Jane! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear that the vest fit really small. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Not what I expected
Pros- timely shipment Cons- the material did not appear soft and uniform on vest. It fit but there was no give to wear oversized with shirt. I returned for fit and quality. It came packaged and the fabric was just not what I would've expected. I own a handful of patagonia items and this was not something I would order again.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review Ashley! We are incredibly sorry to hear about your disappointment with this product. Please know your satisfaction is guaranteed and you are more than welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) this item at any time.
Since the arm holes were a little bigger but the waist fit tight, it looked a little odd on me but I am smaller than the XS measurements on their sizing guide so this makes sense. Noticed some reviews saying this runs small but it fits the same as my other Patagonia vests. Extremely warm
Most comfortable best ever! Perfect warmt!
I love this vest so much! It is perfectly warm and so comfortable!!! It is soft and cozy! I bought one size up and it is perfectly comfortable. I wear this around in the evening and when the air is a bit chilly. You cant go wrong with this. Quality zipper.
not true to size
I returned this item, which I ordered in the size I wear for most other labels, because it was impossibly small. I was so disappointed.
Hey Kathleen, thank you for the review. We're sorry that this vest was too small. In the future, if you'd like to exchange out the process is very easy and simple and could be started [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Super soft and cozy
I love my Los Gatos sweater, but wanted a vest for those warmer days when I just want my core warm. It's in super soft and cozy, like cuddling my cats. :-) I have worn it for walking and even dragonboat paddling in Portland, OR and it has kept me warm. Absolutely love Patagonia and this is a favorite.
Los Gatos ️️️️
I purchased 3 Los Gatos . Love ️ all of them . One had a terrible odor !!!!

So soft but small
I loved this when I took it out of the package but could see that it was going to be small. I could zip it up but it left no room to layer. I wanted to exchange for a bigger size but there were none in my size. Maybe next time.
Hi Carmen! Thank you for writing us a review. We're really sorry to hear that the vest was a bit too tight, and that the next size up was sold out. That said, we're happy to say we will be restocking the vest for Fall 22'. Feel free to [contact us](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) if you'd like some more information on our back order dates.
Cozy and warm
I run cold in Southern California winters. Yes, I admit Im a wimp. This vest is perfect for the brisk mornings and cool days. Its warmer than my better sweater vest. Unlike some reviewers, I found the fit to be perfect and flattering. For reference Im 34A 52 125lbs and got a small. I dont feel like Im squeezed in, but could see that happening if I ... Read Morehad a larger bust. I wouldnt recommend wearing this outdoors in rugged terrain because of the potential for collecting leaves and twigs in the pile. This vest is furry which I love for my office days. Its super cozy, and the lining inside is so silky.
Great quality, super warm!
This was my first fleece vest I ordered. Most have been quilted. I always wear a medium in other brands (or sometimes even a small in vests)....but had to exchange for a large so definitely size up with patagonia! The exchange experience was super positive. Very easy to exchange and got the new one Very timely! Great communication with the company.... Read More Very impressed with the service. They know what they're doing! Will order again.....for sure!
I ordered this in the XL after looking at the size info and deciding this was the size that would fit me. When it arrived and I took it out of the package my first thought was omg they must have accidentally sent an XS instead of XL. Noit was size XL. Thats how small it looked! I tried this on and it was 10 from meeting in the middle! Now remember,... Read More I ordered according to THEIR size chart! XL is also what I normally order in everything. If this is their typical size XL, then all I can say is that they are not inclusive at all and really dont want any women wearing their clothes who are over a size 8. Wow. So disappointing.
Hello Bonny, thank you for leaving us a review on the Los Gatos Fleece Vest and for bringing this issue to our attention. We double checked measurements on the size chart provided which shows body measurements, and then went to check on garment measurements in our database. You're correct that it's not showing up accurately, we have reported this to our web team. The size XL has a 44" chest, and a 44.5" hip which we imagine was what was creating issues for you. It does not look like we'll be restocking the Nest Brown which you originally purchased in XXL, but we will be restocking Birch White, Dusky Brown, Salt Grey, Smolder Blue and some new colors come Spring time. We recommend signing up for [restock notifications](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-los-gatos-fleece-vest/25216.html) by going to the product page, selecting the color of interest, selecting the size and clicking on "Join Waitlist" just below that. From there you'll enter your email address and you will be emailed as soon as there are more in stock. With all of that said, we take your feedback on inclusiveness very seriously, and it's something we're actively working on improving at this time. Until we get there, you're welcome to reach out to customer service to double check on garment measurements before purchasing. Thank you, Bonny!
Id recommend sizing up, as this item runs small. I am usually a medium-large for tops so I ordered the large and could barely zip it. Exchanged for an XL. The item seems well made and very soft. Also, the inside of the pockets are soft and lovely too, a big plus in my book! I may order another color!
Yes I love my vest and just bought one as a gift for a very special family member. It is comfortable and warm and around the house I do not always want to wear a jacket. My family member just was so excited when she found out her gift was this vest. She loved it and this is not the same reaction we always receive on other items we have given her. W... Read Moree were so pleased and this relatives has enough funds to buy anything she wants. She claimed she was going to wear it that night and every day. I bought the blue for myself and also for her. They are easy to keep clean on the gentle cycle and low dryer heat. Patagonia just makes quality products! It does run small so order up a size.
Love the vest but runs very small. The large I purchased could have been a small/ medium. If you have broad shoulders or big chested, I would recommend either one or two sizes up. I will continue to purchase from Patagonia but know in the future that its not true in size and to purchase a size or two up.
Can be more warm
Im in love with the color. Looking at the picture you might over look it. But when you receive it. I fell in love. Im normally a extra small regardless that Im busty but these run really small so I wore it and realized I looked choked up in it. Besides that, I think it can be a little warmer. I do love this vest. So much so I bought another color
Loved it just doesnt look good on me.
I loved my vest but it didnt look good on me. I bought it in St Paul but I live in Denver so cant exchange it. I took off tags.

Runs a size small
There is no stretch and is smaller than a fleece vest i bought at the same time which does have stretch. Im 55, 145, and prefer a fitted look. A Small fits but is not patagonia comfortable. It zips over a thin shirt and looks great open. The back wrinkles. Ive never seen this before with fleece.
I had gotten two of these during same. One in xs and one in M. I usually wear a small or extra small in Patagonia. This vest runs small. The xs looked like it could be for a 10 year old. The medium fit me perfect and wasnt tight or too baggy. Its a great fuzzy and warm vest. Fir reference Im quite petite in my upper body. Most tops I wear are small... Read More or xs.
Cuddly, happy and functional
This is my third purchase of the exact same item. The other two are still w me from five and two years ago. It is such a basic casual, basic fit, which I wear so often I figured changing the color would give the appearance of wardrobe variety without actually varying wearing this vest! I like this vests comfort, pockets deep enough to safely carry ... Read Moremy keys. Each of the three vests are sized differently. This size large fit comfortably and looks good, as did two years ago size medium. The five year ago size large is gigantic in comparison to both the other vests.
SOFT & WARM VEST
This is a very nice fuzzy vest. My daughter was a little hesitant to get a vest but she loves it. She also loves the Century Pink color which is very accurate to the photo. It is a semi-fitted and not boxy vest which she likes. She will be using this vest attending college in the Pacific Northwest.
I already had this in the 1/4 zip and I needed a new vest (because my 10yr old EMS fleece vest finally bit the dust). It is great, cozy, comfy with a nice smooth lining that doesnt get static/caught up on whatever youre wearing under it. Pockets are great too. A zipper on one or an inner zip pocket could make this more versatile.
Super, just wish it had inner pockets
This vest is great. I live where it gets cold in the morning, so it's perfect year round for keeping warm. My only wish is that it came with some inner pockets inside the vest. When I go out hiking, I'll bring gloves - then get hot and want to chuck them in my vest. It's a minor complaint, but for the price, it could be cool if it ha... Read Mored these. Great otherwise.
Warm, but XS keeps getting bigger
I have this vest in shadow blue from fall 2018, and it fits really well. I purchased another in pigeon blue, to have an alternative, but it fits differently. It is extremely roomy through the chest, under the arms, and through the shoulders. I am small and narrow, and I've been having this problem with everything I've tried to buy from Pa... Read Moretagonia in the past two years. I think they're trying to accommodate more people, within the same sizes, and I'm unfortunately being sized out. It pains me to return, as I love this vest, but it fits so poorly. I'm grateful I at least have my one from fall 2018. If there were an XXS in this vest, maybe that would help.
So pretty and cozy!
The quality is great and the service of the company also. I did exchange it for a smaller size but that wasnt a problem at all even after a couple of weeks. I did wish they had made a different material under the arms because the fluffy material looks worn out only under the arms when you wearing it. But no one will see that only yourself so I am s...

The vest looks amazing on the website, but unfortunately when it came I got a pretty bad surprise! It looks cheap and with a pretty low quality.
Hi Emilia, we're so sorry to hear that you were unhappy with the look of the Los Gatos Fleece Vest. We want you to be completely satisfied with your gear and since you're not, please feel free to begin a return or exchange here, https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html.
Too small & strange trim
Not our favorite. I bought this for my 13 year old daughter as a Valentines Day gift and we were disappointed in both size and strangeness trim- it isnt cute.
Hey there, we'd love to hear more from you! What was strange about the trim, and the sizing? The more details you provide, the more it helps our designers and other customers, so please feel free to submit another review letting us know what size you purchased, what wasn't fitting right, and how the trim was bothersome. Thank you! In the meantime, if you haven't already, feel free to get started on a return [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
It is so well made and I love the color but it runs large under my arms and the only thing I was sad off , was that the material under my arms showing already signs of wear. I only have it for a few weeks but under the arms it looks like I have it worn for years.
We're so sorry that your Los Gatos Fleece Vest is already showing signs of wear. We don't hold our clothing to this standard, so please feel free to [reach out to us](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) so we can look into getting you a replacement.
Be careful with sizing up - you might not need to.
Based on all the reviews urging others to size up, I did - I'm usually a size M in Patagonia tops/Jackets (and a small in many other brands), so I ordered the size Large. The vest that arrived was too big for me, but I can see why people size up: it depends on how you plan to wear/layer this vest. I don't usually wear my vests over thick ... Read Moresweaters etc. - more likely a long sleeved t-shirt or shirt. For that, the size Large was too generous, the arm holes to big etc. The Medium works fine, and when I zip it closed, it is snugger than my other two Patagonia vests (Retro X in Medium, plus the regular fleece one, also in M) - more fitted. Lastly, this to me is less of a functional hiking type vest and more of a fashion item. Century Pink is gorgeous. Now I just need more tops that go with it!
