Women's Re-Tool Snap-T® Fleece Pullover

True To Size
March 4, 2023

snap fleece

I like this item. I have purchased it for both my daughters and granddaughters!

February 24, 2023


I purchased one of these pullovers 7 years ago for my then-teenage granddaughter as a special treat for her prior to a major surgery, and liked it so much that I bought one for myself as soon as hers was delivered! It has been my go-to pullover at home all these years; I still wear it almost everyday. I decided to splurge and order a second pullove... Read Morer for variety (and was prepared to order a 3rd!), and am extremely disappointed. I have to agree with the other negative reviews. I went ahead and placed my order despite these reviews, thinking/hoping that my experience would be different. Unfortunately, this is not the case. The fabric of new one is thinner and lighter-weight, and the cut is different than the old one. Less importantly for me, the new one doesn't have the nice color contrast edging at the hem and the bottom edges of the sleeves. I am sad to be returning this item. Please bring the old version back!

I love how warm this pullover is, BUT

I very much enjoy these pullovers. I own three of them and love how warm and soft and cozy they are. But man the sizing leaves much to be desired. I am a solid Large with everything Patagonia, but for whatever reason the large on this pullover is small. I don't have long arms at all, but the sleeves are super short - if I lift my arms above my... Read More head, the sleeves come almost halfway down my forearm. The neck is also very tight, and I cant button it all the way without feeling like Im being choked. I tried getting an XL, and thats too big; definitely defeats the slim fit. Its a great layering piece, but every time I wear it, Im reminded all day of how small it feels on. If you're not at all bulky, this might fit you well. But if you're in between sizes, this may not be the best pullover.

February 19, 2023

Soft amd Warm

Warm, soft and comfortable. It's probably too warm to wear on a run even in typical northeastern winter weather. I bought my normal size and there is room for layering.

February 13, 2023

Just Ok

The quality of the fabric and the construction of the seams is not good enough. I am disappointed and will return. I don't think this fleece has the coziness and durability like the one I've had for years

We're sorry to hear that this version of our Re-Tool has been disappointing. We're glad you were able to return it to the Patagonia-owned store near you. You might prefer the cozy feel of our [Los Gatos, Retro Pile or Lightweight Synchilla fleece](https://www.patagonia.com/shop/womens-fleece). Thanks for your review, Lisa!

February 13, 2023

Comfy and perfect

This is my second Re-Tool Snap-T Fleece pullover. I loved my first one so much I needed another in a different color. I love the slim fit because it looks tidy and it is so warm. I wear it to work on cold days and for outdoor activities. Its lack of bulkiness allows it to fit well under vests and jackets.

February 1, 2023

Bad fabric

I have an older version of this fleece from a few years ago, and it's one of my favorites. I bought a new one to get a different color, and it's awful. The fabric is scratchy, not soft, but the worst part is that it leaves lint everywhere. The shirt I wore when I tried it on is absolutely covered in lint, and the sweatshirt left a lint tr...

My favorite fleece out of all from all manufacturers

The Retool Pullover is very warm and I wear them (I have several) all winter and sometimes camping/hiking in the Sierras in warmer months. It tends to run a bit small(for me anyway) so I go up a size

January 25, 2023

soft and warm

the re-tool snap t pull over fits true to size. i don't feel constricted in movement when i am wearing it with one or two thinner layers underneath. however my patagonia puffer jacket (also size large) is a little tight when i wear it over the pullover. i recently wore the pullover on a sunny, 50 degree hike and it was the only layer i needed ... Read Morefor upper body warmth. all i had underneath was a cotton t shirt. i like the way the collar insulates my neck when the front is snapped up to a close. i also like the cabin gold color.

January 23, 2023

Thinner than the one I bought 10 years ago

This is my 2nd retool sweater. The first one I bought was 10 years ago when I was still a college student. Even after 10 years, my old retool sweater is still thicker, fluffier, and standding up to the rest of time. The new retool is definitely thinner and not as fluffy. I weighed both sweaters on my kitchen scale. The old retool weighs 476 grams. ... Read MoreThe new retool only weighs 430 grams. Patagonia is a reputable company, so it's quite disappointing to see this happening.

January 23, 2023

super comfy and warm

I bought this pull over for my sister in law. She literally wears it everywhere.

January 12, 2023

Wonderfully warm and cozy

Love this!!! Warm, cozy, stylish!!! Love the yellow-gold color!

January 8, 2023

Just right

I was worried the small would be too snug, and this is definitely a close-fitted fleece. Its a little tight in the shoulders but ultimately I think a medium would be too small. As is, its perfect; I can wear it by itself or under a jacket and its not too hot or too thin. Im happy with it!

December 28, 2022

Id buy ten to see that smile on my daughters face

I bought this as a gift for my adult daughter. She is an extremely active person who never stops moving: paddle boarding, diving, hiking and climbing mountains, exercise of any kind. When she opened her present her reaction was like a little kid. She screamed with joy, held it to her, and ran into the bathroom to put it on. It stayed on her the ent...

Favorite Pullover Ever

Hands down my favorite pullover ever and I have LOTS of Patagonia pullovers. Warm, stylish, and versatile. Also, wash after wash it still looks perfect! My only hope is that the colors will find some life again, they have seemed very subdued the last couple years.

December 3, 2022

My fall and winter uniform

I feel cold all winter in NC. This in the only thing that keeps me warm without making me sweaty both indoors and outdoors. They've lasted years and years with frequent washes for a good 4-5 months of the year. Softness is just like when they were new. Amazing product!

November 13, 2022

Very Cozy and Warm

Warmer than other fleece 1/4 zips. Fleecy/fuzzy on the inside and out, so it feels warmer. Fitted (ie, not baggy or sloppy looking) but not too tight, so a base layer underneath also fits. For a middle aged woman who is always cold, this keeps me warm inside and outdoors on 35 degree days without needing to break out my Canada Goose jacket intended... Read More for sub-zero temps.

October 22, 2022

Short sleeves

I love how warm this jacket is, and the overall fit is great for layering. However, I am long and slender, and I find that this jacket sleeves are too short by more than 5 inches when I bend my elbows. If I purchased it any larger, the 1 or 2 inch gain in sleeve length would not be worth it I'll fitting everywhere else.

October 2, 2022

Long arms

This is my second color of the Retool pullover. The arms are long. It looks like it would be thin as colored undershirts can be seen through, but it is plenty warm for "always cold" me I would probably fit a medium better but appreciate the extra room for layering. Am 5'11" 140# and ordered a large.

September 22, 2022

Love it! Perfect Fit

For me, this is a perfect fit. I'm 5'5 and flux between 115-125. I'm cozy in it with a light tee under. Soft and functional. I've had these used pullovers in the past, scored from garage sales, (I still wear them on occasion but now I have this new beauty!) after buying them used 5 years later, no idea if the styles are differen... Read Moret but they're close enough, the material feels the same, the quality is just amazing. I love Patagonia! Since this is the first brand new to me pullover, i want to live in it! It's silly how happy I am about it! I know I'll own it for a long long time. The quality is amazing and I'm in love with the fit, feel and color! Patagonia , you go, stepping it up on the color pallets! ️

September 21, 2022

Comfortable & amazing quality

Love my Patagonia

September 19, 2022

Repurchased (Quality seems different)

I bought the exact/similar style a few years ago and fell in love with it. I wore it day in, day out. The pullover was super comfy and soft and made of high quality material. Except for the expected worn look because I washed it so many times, however, the shape etc. remain almost the same! So when I saw they have it in stock again, this time I loa... Read Mored up on a couple more even though it's a bit more pricier (inflation). The inside is still soft, but the exterior feels a bit more rough than previously. Also, the material seems thinner this time around. I feel the quality is not the same as before. This was a disappointment. But I'll keep it and see how it feels after multiple washes.

September 7, 2022

Cozy Sweater Hug

I have two of these and they are my absolute favorite when things start to get chilly. Super warm and comfortable! (Only bummer is they stopped making them for men and my husband loves them too!)

September 6, 2022

Super Soft & Warm

My second color in this wonderfully soft and cozy pullover. Love the snaps and front pockets to keep hands warm. It runs true to size, but I sized up to a large for extra room and relaxed fit. Fits great! Kept me warm walking through New York City in early Spring and warm hiking in the woods. Cant go wrong with this Patagonia fleece! Great for a ca... Read Moresual night out too!

June 26, 2022

SUPER warm

Comfortable, easy to wear, SUPER warm. Sometimes I sleep in it. Love this fleece for cold winter days!

June 22, 2022

This is my second one

This is my second one of this style and i absolutely love it. Warm and comfortable along with a pocket in the front which is awesome!

June 8, 2022

Great Gift

I got this fleece for my sister and she absolutely loves it! She says it is very soft and comfortable to wear. It was a bit more fitted than expected, so consider sizing up if you are on the fence between sizes.

April 13, 2022

Nice shirt, warm and wears true to size

I HAVE 25 of the retool pullover in different colors. Did like the old style where the bottom of the shirt had a soft border around the cuff and bottom. Would recommend the shirt.

April 2, 2022

Great shirt do like the border around the writs and bottom of the shirt like it used to be. But great shirt

The shirt is great. Do like the border around the cuffs and bottom. , like it used to be

April 1, 2022

Perfect for anything

I absolutely love the retool shirt. I own like twenty five in different colors.

March 25, 2022

Super soft and great fit

Love this pullover. It is super soft, and warm, but not too warm. Good for everyday wear in colder months. I originally ordered one size up because the description mentioned slim fit. For a "slim fit" this does not grab anywhere which is why I love it. Gentle curves but not clingy. Ordered in two colors because I liked it so much.

March 22, 2022

Very Useful Layer

I have several of the Snap-T pullovers and wear them throughout the colder months. They look great with jeans and are quite warm. The dark blue is a particularly useful color.

March 21, 2022

Classic Sweater Jacket

Normal fit, very fuzzy, people like it.

March 18, 2022

Super soft and comfy!

Love this pullover! It is very warm and soft. I wear it multiple times a week.

March 16, 2022

Great fleece!

I have 3 of these fleeces. I love them!

March 16, 2022

Good casual t-shirt

Just what I was looking for. It's good for casual wear, hiking, camping, etc.

March 15, 2022

Fav pullover...must stop buying all the colors

This is my favorite go-to pullover. I liked the first one I got so much I ordered another... and have my eye on navy now. I'm 5'8", 130 and find this to be roomy for layering. I have worn under my ski coat for extra warmth and it wasn't too bulky.

March 5, 2022

Love the Redesigned Snap-T

Redesigned with a little more room at the bottom, which is perfect for me. Very cozy and comfortable. My only complaint is that it doesn't come in more colors. Hot pink and more pastels, please!

February 22, 2022

Very lovely jacket

Very warm and comfortable

January 30, 2022

Casual yet trendy

Warm and casually classy. I love this and its perfect for everyday wear.

January 10, 2022

Good jacket. Slimmer fit.

Love this jacket and kangaroo pocket. Jacket has a slim fit, so went up a size and fits well. My only complaint is at the wrist. The sleeves need a little bit of an elastic band or stretch to maintain shape. The end of the sleeves get all stretched out after wearing.

January 10, 2022

WFH outfit

Very nice fitting sweater. I work from home and it perfect and cozy. I bought 2 colors.

January 3, 2022

12 years later

Ive literally had this jacket for 12 years and its still in impeccable condition, so I figured Id circle back and report that this is a wise purchase. This may be the oldest thing in my wardrobe actually. Im 28 for reference. I dont wash it that often, but its not necessary to do so in my opinion.

January 2, 2022

Wish the design hadn't been changed

This is my second re-tool jacket and this one is not as soft or as comfy as the old style. The cuffs and bottom cuff of the jacket is different and just fits less nice (almost too widely now). I love the jacket, but wish you hadn't made the changes to the design. It's unfortunate that I didn't realize before I took the tags off. Othe... Read Morer than the design changes, it is very warm and stylish.

Re tool snap-T Fleece

Love it, soft, warm, and comfortable!

December 29, 2021

Super warm!!

I own 3 of these, they are one of the warmest and definitely most comfortable fleeces, I've owned.

December 28, 2021

Loves it!

My 12 yr. Granddaughter had this on her wishlist for Christmas. She absolutely was so surprised & delighted when she opened her package. I too was delighted! As I expected from Patagonia, the fleece is so very nice and this pullover is well made. A great layer piece for winter sports.

December 27, 2021

Granddaughter loves it

I ordered pullover for my Granddaughter. Received an email saying it was delivered. I waited till next day still no package. I called your customer service and the woman was very kind and assured me I would have a new one the next day. This was December 23rd. They saved Christmas!

December 14, 2021

Fleece Pullover

Both of the zip jackets I bought this year are hard to get on and off. Once on they are snug but all right. The zipper on the first jacket is sooo long. I like the fabric on both products.

December 1, 2021


Great weight, soft on skin, roomy, warm but not too warm, washes like a dream, I can't say enough checks all the boxes for me

November 23, 2021

Prefect for whatever you do

I love this pull over! It is my go to for anything.

November 21, 2021

Pretty and warm

Great addition for the fall. Fits well and is warm. I originally ordered a medium and exchanged for a small.

November 18, 2021

Comfy and cute

I got a bigger size but it runs super small and I wanted a loose fit. So soft and comfy

November 11, 2021

Very cozy and breathable

Navy color is not too dark. Fits great while not being boxy. Very cozy!

November 3, 2021

Lightweight warmth!

I purchased this top because it was so soft, lightweight, nice looking and would give me the winter warmth I need. It washed really well. I like the deep blue color and might order another of this same style. Thank you! I am pleased!

November 1, 2021

Comfy and cute

This is very comfy, cute, and just the right amount of warm. But its the second sweater/fleece I have gotten from Patagonia with too-short sleeves.

Love the fit other... Read Morewise.

October 3, 2021

Cozy and practical for active wear

The snap fleece pullover is roomy enough for additional under layers without looking baggy. It's lightweight and easy to pull on and off, unlike my better sweater. I love the pouch pockets.

September 29, 2021

So cozy!

I love how cozy this fleece is and the kangaroo pocket makes it even better!

Cozy Cute Go To Fleece

A few years ago I admired this pullover in a beautiful mint color on my friend. I ordered a used piece on Worn Wear in XS .. Decided It was more fitted than I prefer.

We appreciate your detailed feedback on the fit, fabric and usage of this fleece, Deanna. Note that this one is a "slim" fit design so some customers prefer to size up. We're glad you found the perfect one for you!

The place I work at has a lost and found section and this was there for a good year. I got the okay to look through a bag of used clothes and found this bad boy!! I was so excited!

Great fleece pullover!

Super soft fleece and very comfortable. Can't wait for more fall weather to wear this.

July 23, 2021

Warm and Cozy Retool Fleece!

The Patagonia Retool fleece is the most well made, cozy and comfortable fleece! Great next to skin feel! Would love to see Patagonia make the Retool Fleece as a jacket again (only with zipper pockets this time) Also I would really love to see Patagonia make the Retool Fleece Pullover in Marble Pink with Electric Blue or Teal accent trim !!!

May 13, 2021

Favorite fleece

This is my third Re-Tool fleece, and I love it. I started with the Large because my full zip fleece is tight in the arms, but found I was swimming in it. I exchanged for a medium, and am much happier.

May 13, 2021

Very warm and comfy

This is a little bulky and I like that about it. It has a great pocket in front for hands and is long enough with a looser-type bottom to fit comfortably at the hips.

May 6, 2021

Super warm

Great sweater, very warm, great with jeans or khakis.

April 7, 2021


Love it!

March 24, 2021


I got a large to fit my long arms. Its a bit bigger in the body bc of this.

March 23, 2021

it is very warm and it is super comfy. It also fits true to size and has multiple pockets great for hiking.

March 12, 2021

Super comfy

This is my favorite product from Patagonia. I received one as a gift many years ago and its still good as new. I bought this one because I liked the color. These wash beautifully and are so very warm and comfortable. I would recommend buying in every color

March 6, 2021

Great pullover but size up!

Love the softness and light weight warmth but if you want to wear over anything but a very light T-shirt and you want to be comfortable, definitely size up. Not sure why these are cut so slim!

March 6, 2021

Very Nice Fleece

Purchased as a gift for wife and the fit is perfect. Hard to make a bad purchase with Patagonia. Looks great on her.

March 1, 2021

Warm and soft

This is my favorite Patagonia product and I buy one or two every season. I am 5'1, 140 lb and the small fits perfectly, even the sleeves are not too long. Really warm and comfy when there is no wind. Highly recommended.

Its a perfect fit. I love it! I wear it a lot. Its super soft and cozy. I am 5 ft and got an xxs.

February 12, 2021

Sized up for a more "boxy" fit

I'm 5'4 and weight 123 lb and I bought a M based on the reviews, and I'm glad I did. I think S would have fit me but I wanted it to be more comfortable and be able to wear a thin long sleeve inside. Also I have wide shoulders.

February 8, 2021


Material is so soft & it is really warm, perfect for adding a layer.

January 30, 2021

Super warm and cozy!

Love this fleece! After buying several for my kids over the years, I bit the bullet and treated myself to this. It is perfect for walking the dog in all kinds of weather and fits under my winter coat. In the warmer weather I will wear it instead of a jacket. Great quality and well worth it!

January 28, 2021

Comfy but not totally what I expected

Its a nice pullover but I definitely expected it to be a lot more soft. I was kind of disappointed but still nice.

Response from Patagonia
March 2, 2021

We're sorry to hear that this did not live up to expectations! While we do consider this fleece to be soft, maybe you were looking for something a bit more plush.

January 21, 2021


This was my first patagonia clothing. I am typically a medium. My husband had ordered a medium and we had to exchange because the sleeves were too short. The large fits me great, I am 5'9 its soft but not too soft and very warm.

January 19, 2021

The best

I have not had a chance to wear this yet however I own three others. These are wonderful last forever look fabulous over very lightweight yet extremely warm. My absolute Patagonia favorite pull over.

January 9, 2021

My first one & I am hooked!

I have wanted one of these forever. I'm 5'10, 175 lbs - size 12. I have always thought patagonia ran a bit small/short - so I've been scared to spend the money. I'm so glad I did! The xl fits with some room which I love - It is so soft, the pockets are deep and amazing and it's warm. I want ten more. TY Patagonia!

January 8, 2021

Super Warm and beautiful colors

I already have two of these fleeces. One of them I have washed for years and actually looks almost exactly the same as my new one. I liked them so much this Christmas I purchased one for a friend and bought 3 more for myself.

January 8, 2021

Love it, but size up!

When it comes to women's sizing I am all over the place. I have a very disproportional chest (34i) compared to the rest of my body (5'3 140lbs), which makes top shopping of any kind a nightmare. With that being said, I am typically a medium and after reading other reviews I decided to go with my usual size. Because it is more fitted/tailo... Read Morered, as is common with women's outerwear, I ended up needing to size up the large and now it is slightly oversized, which is what I wanted, and SUPER cozy. I absolutely think it is worth the money and I love my fleece a lot, but if you're in-between sizes I would definitely say that you should size up!

January 8, 2021


This was a gift for my daughter, and a repeat of a smaller size she had in the past. She loves it. Medium is a bit roomy on her as she's very slender, but 5'4 and still growing.

January 5, 2021

Super warm

Nice fit and warm love it

January 5, 2021


Product is perfect and beautiful

January 3, 2021


Comfortable and sleek.

January 2, 2021


Purchased for daughter for Christmas. She is a sophomore in college and asked for this specifically. She loves it, the color, the fit, says its perfect. It is definitely a fitted top, and looks good. Its a warm top, good for layering on top of leggings or jeans. This is a good staple.

December 29, 2020

Very Warm, Too Big

I bought a medium, as most reviews say it runs sort of small. I should have gotten a small. I have a short/medium length torso, so it was too long along with baggy. On the bright side, just a thin long sleeve underneath will provide enough heat for 20-30 degrees.

December 28, 2020

So cute and well made

Warm and cozy. Very soft.

December 27, 2020

Was a gift

Bought this for my daughter and bought xxl because thats what was left in the color she wanted. It fits her perfectly and she wears 8/10. These jackets run small but are nice and seem warm.

December 26, 2020

Nice and warm

This was the exact color and fit expected. Good quality, comfortable and warm.

December 25, 2020

Warm & comfy

This is a great fleece. I have two now. This one is a slimmer cut than the one I got a few years ago and I like having both cuts. They are very warm.

December 23, 2020


This pullover is not as thick and warm as the previous versions I own. Not a fan.

December 11, 2020


Have worn it this fall in 30 to 40° weather while hiking. Comfortable and if you are going to layer a lot underneath may want a size up. I wore a long sleeve wool t-shirt underneath.

December 7, 2020

Used to be my Favorite item of clothing (warning)

If you loved the old version(s) Don't Buy This One. The quality and cut are different. I have 6 of these that I live in - hiking, working from home, even sleeping. They were the best, bought 2 more, but now: -- sleeves run long -- cuffs are loose -- material is thinner -- neck/collar is stiff. Not the awesome cozy quality of Patagonia, sadly.

Second time buying same pullover

Bought a size M a few years ago and it was always a bit small for me. After 2 little kids I ended up getting a size L. Fits much more comfortable

December 7, 2020

Very comfy

Nice look, comfortable fit, and stylish.

December 6, 2020

Warm but size runs a bit small

I really like this pull-on but unfortunately, I had to return it, as the XS doesn't fit well in the waist area. S is a bit too big.

December 5, 2020

Warm and cozy

I am 81 years old and being warm on cold days can be a challenge when Im not outside being active. The re tool keeps me very comfortable in my house of 65 degrees.

December 5, 2020

Super Warm and Comfy!!

These are my favorite Fleeces and my 3 Daughters love them too!! I try to buy them when there is a great sale which makes it even better!!

December 5, 2020

Super warm and comfy!

My daughter loves her new fleece! It keeps her warm during her school day and transitions right to the outdoors. It is a not boxy but not too tight either. Beautiful blue color!!

December 4, 2020

Great quality

Dense and warm. Worth the money. Very soft

December 4, 2020

Love love love

I absolutely love my re-tool. I have a couple of them now and I wear them all the time. Im 54 and 140lbs and usually wear a size small or medium. I got a large because I wanted it to be loose. I would totally recommend this to anyone.

December 2, 2020

Love it

In the previous design of this I always had to buy a large because the arms were so short- with the new design a medium-my normal sweatshirt size- would be perfect! This new design is a lot less boxy as well! Just for reference- Im 52 - 26 waist, 35 hips, 140#- normally wear a small in tee shirt and medium sweatshirt.

Initial Opinion

As a first-time Patagonia buyer, I did not know what to expect from the sizing and fabric. I am small in all shirts/sweatshirts and assumed I would be the same for this. I am also 5'3 and 115 lbs. I found it hard to get over my head and was a bit disappointed when realizing the little chest pocket does not actually open. The pocket near the be... Read Morelly button is one big pocket for those of you who are curious. I understand that this is labeled as a slim fit and is supposed to be tighter than a regular fit, I was able to put it over a shirt and sweatshirt without any problem though. I also found the 4 button-up part to be a bit uncomfortable around my neck. I would buy again but might buy a medium for more room and easier removal of the sweatshirt. It is also the perfect arm length and torso length. I ordered on a Friday and received on a Wednesday and it has kept me warm throughout the mid-40-degree weather.

I returned a Synchilla snap T pullover and chose this instead and am happy with the switch. The snap T felt bulky even in an extra S and was not as soft and cozy as this one. Also, the snap T synchilla didn't have pockets. The shape and fit of this fleece worked better for me. It's roomy, but not baggy. I wear it alone on warmer days, und... Read Moreer a shell when it's colder and just around the house. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

November 5, 2020

Runs Small, otherwise amazing!

I love my pullover! Soft, warm and the color is beautiful. Only drawback is sizing. I usually wear a medium and had to size up to an XL and I still can't wear it with leggings because of how short it is. I would definitely recommend, just size up!

October 28, 2020

So comfy

Love this fleece. Its my second retool snap t pullover because I loved the first one so much! Love that they changed the hip seam so it lies flat, way more flattering fit now compared to the old style. My cat loves snuggling in it too!

October 17, 2020

Different fit than past years

I love this product, but it is longer and slimmer than years past. I like the old style better any chance you could have 2 different fits? Slim and Casual.

Hey there, right now this is the only fit this is being made in; however, we will change fit periodically based off our reviewers comments, our ambassadors feedback, etc. When an item has been revised, the style number will change.

Really miss the old version of this pullover!

I do not like this new version of the re-tool pullover. First, it's longer and more slim fitting than the original, and the cuffs have no gathering or elastic. This means I have to size up to get the right fit thru the body, but then the arms are too long. Second, the fleece is not nearly as plush or warm as the original. So now I feel like I&... Read More#x27;m wearing a misshapen garment that is supposed to keep me warm but fails to do so. I have no idea why Patagonia changed to the newer version. The old version was a bit wider thru the body, which made for much easier layering, had a nice elasticized waist and cuffs, and the collar fit better too. Sure wish you would bring back the original, Patagonia!!! This new version is just not up to snuff!!

Perfect for fall in Alaska!

I recently ordered one of these pullovers and they are fantastic! I frequently wear it while walking my dogs and it keeps me nice and warm on chilly Alaska evenings!

September 16, 2020


It's embarrassing how many of these I have but the spoiled brat in me may never have enough! I love their comfort and versatile looks.

September 15, 2020

Cozy and warm

If I have to get out of bed, its usually wearing one of my many re-tool fleeces. Love love love.

September 14, 2020

Snug and Cozy

Got this for my wife she said it was snug but cozy. Very soft and warm. She loves that she can wear when relaxing casual or a little more dressy. Looks fantastic

September 9, 2020

Wonderful product

The color is assume, the fit is perfect and comfortable.

September 9, 2020

Super soft

Not too baggy, not too fitted. Fuzzy and soft. Its very warm. Looking forward to wearing it during cooler temp.

September 9, 2020

Always a favorite

I have three of these! Theyre that great. Recently, Patagonia redid their sizing as Ive always been a medium, but this time had to reorder a small, which is how the medium used to fit, but they are offering free exchanges. Same quality as expected. Great layering piece. I live in them!

September 8, 2020

Perfect Pull-over

I ordered a medium, which fit, but will be exchanging for a large - I like to layer and for things to be a little bit looser.

September 8, 2020

Nice casual sweatshirt

I really like this sweatshirt, it's warm and soft but it's a little bigger than I had expected. I tend to like my sweatshirts fitted though so if you're just looking for a regular fit this is probably fine. It's a little longer than I had expected too. But I will definitely be wearing it this fall and winter because it is so coz... Read Morey.

September 8, 2020

Great new colors, so soft!

I have a couple of the Re-Tool fleeces and i like the new color schemes which seem to be a bit more modern than past. The fit is slim so after COVID i bought a Medium instead of my usual small. Good choice as it is fitted.

September 8, 2020

Super comfy, soft and warm

I love my new pullover. I will definitely get it in different colors.

September 7, 2020

Cozy but lightweight Fleece

Runs a bit small. Lightweight but warm fleece. Love the pocket and collar details.

September 6, 2020

Super comfy

Bought this for my wife, she loves it. Super warm and comfy!

September 6, 2020

Beautiful and warm

Because this is the Most Useful piece of clothing that I have from Patagonia (and I have a LOT ) I check out the new colors every year and ALWAYS find another one I can't live without. The Snap T has kept me warm and wind proof with a bit of help from mid weight Pat Undies while photographing Polar Bears and alone on trips to the grocery store... Read More. Love the Kangaroo pouch pocket too.

September 6, 2020

Order up for layering

Love this fleece. So cozy for Fall nights on the ocean and early morning hikes. Im usually a small in Patagonia but would recommend sizing up in this if you want room to layer.

September 4, 2020


Beautiful shirt. Love the feel. Keeps me warm.

September 4, 2020


I have a few of these pullovers and love them. Tried a Medium this time because large sizing is 10-12. I am normally a 6. The medium is way too snug. Just uncomfortable. Back to the Large.

September 4, 2020

Waiting for it to get cool enough to wear.

Right now in Bluff, UT it is too warm to wear. I look forward to the soft warm fleece when it cools off.

September 3, 2020

So soft!

I bought this for my daughter in law. It runs small but otherwise looks great! I bought this a couple of sizes larger than she normally wears and the larger size looks great.

September 3, 2020

Exactly What I Wanted

I bought this pullover on a whim after purchasing other Patagonia products and it did not disappoint! The colors are true to the pictures and the fit is perfect for me. I am able to wear a T- Shirt or even long sleeve shirt under it easily. Im excited for cooler weather to be able to wear this even more!

September 3, 2020

Perfect fleece

I love this fleece, itll be a staple this winter. It fits great (doesnt cling anywhere like some fleece do) and is long enough. The collar kind of sticks up, but I think with wear it will lay down.

September 2, 2020

Love it!

Love it! Replacement for almost exact one I purchased 7 years ago that I completely wore out with much use. My go to sweatshirt.

September 2, 2020

Super warm and comfy

Great to wear during the cold summer nights and perfect for any winter skiing or snowboarding. The quality is worth the money and the lifetime of the product is outstanding.

September 2, 2020

Size up for comfort!

I ordered the grey and coral colored fleece and I am in love! It manages to feel extremely soft and warm while not being bulky. I'm so excited to wear this around the campfire or on chilly morning/evening walks as fall gets close. I have a weird body that mostly fits in smalls but sometimes fits better in mediums so I was wary about the sizi... Read Moreng. Initially I was going to order a small but after reading reviews a lot of folks were saying these fleece sweaters run a little snug so I sized up to a medium. That was a good call! I'm 5'0 and 130 pounds and the medium is comfortably roomy so I can wear a few layers underneath. If I preferred a slim/more form-fitting fleece I feel like I could have still ordered a small but I like a little room in my sweaters unless they are a base layer.

September 2, 2020


its super soft and warm!

September 2, 2020

Stylish & Cozy

I love the fit and style - the color wasnt good for me. Patagonia medium is perfect in everything I order

August 26, 2020

Most Worn Fleece

Absolutely love this fleece & it washes/dries so well unlike some other fleeces. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because like many Patagonia products, the sleeves run short which can be unideal in the cold weather months.

August 18, 2020

Not as warm as i expected it to be

Patagonia fleeces are known for being super warm, so I'm kind of disappointed that this didn't meet my expectations. The abdominal area is lined with mesh and the arms are lined with fleece. I did read that the material is thinner due to increased recycled materials, but I didn't know that could have an impact on the warmth? Also the... Read More medium was oddly a bit tighter than I expected to be, so I would definitely recommend sizing up

Hi Joyce, thank you so much for your feed back on the fit and warmth of the Women's Re-Tool Snap-T® Fleece Pullover. You might find that the [Women's Los Gatos 1/4-Zip Fleece](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-los-gatos-quarter-zip-fleece/25235.html?dwvar_25235_color=BURR&cgid=collection-high-pile-fleece-womens) will keep you warmer but still have that fluffy fleece feel.

August 12, 2020

Please bring back the full zip!

I have this fleece in the full zip version and love it! It is really warm and comfortable. I'm sad to see that you haven't brought the full zip version back this season. While I like a pullover, I like to wear this to work in the fall/spring and pulling something over my head isn't ideal. I hope you consider bringing it back again!

August 9, 2020

Favorite pullover

I love the Re-Tool fleece pullovers, and purchase a new one every year or so. I wear them all the time for work, hiking, snow shoeing, etc. My only complaint about the purchase is that the color is not true to the color shown. I bought the Elwood green that looks more sage on the website, but its more of a dark sea foam.

July 18, 2020

Great cut, warm

I am 5foot7 160lbs and the large fits great. I am between medium and large. This is a little longer and does well to block the wind from the Strait.

June 26, 2020

So comfy!

I love this fleece. Its super comfy and soft and I have pretty much lived in it since it arrived. I do wish it were a little bit more wind resistant, but otherwise, Im really pleased with this purchase!

June 21, 2020

Bad fabric

This sweater seemed like it was half as thick as my other re-tool pullover. I wanted something earlier, so I sent it back. The color was pretty, though!

June 20, 2020

Wear almost every day

I bought this jacket in the feather grey. The cut of this fleece is fitted. I golfed 9 holes in a misty rain and this fleece kept me warm and dry. Its not constricting and allows me to move comfortably. This fleece has replaced almost every sweater and spring jacket that I own.

June 19, 2020

Super Comfortable

I love these Re-tool Fleece Pullovers! This is about the fifth one I've bought! These are the perfect amount of warmth and comfort! I love the hand warmer kangaroo pouch too! So many beautiful colors to choose from! You can't go wrong with these!

June 19, 2020

My favorite!!

My favorite Patagonia Ive had!!! I ordered a Large since the last one I owned was a little snug and a Medium. So much more comfortable!! Recommend sizing up!!

June 18, 2020

Super comfy!

I had two other Patagonia pullovers like this and love them. The new blue color is beautiful!

June 17, 2020

It runs a little small

I'm also a tall lady (5'9") so buying online is always uncertain. I was a small in their jacks so I thought a small would fit as nicely. It's a little snug, which is fine. But I am sort of curious if the medium would have fit better.

Hi Rachel, please feel free to make an exchange if you need to size up. You're welcome to begin your return here, https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html.

So comfy and warm

I love that I can wear it under a heavier coat for layering and its so comfortable that I wear it frequently. I bought 3 to alternate.
