Blowsy and Annoying
I love Snap T's. I'm a big guy. I'm 6'2 230 pounds. XXLs always fit. They've always been roomy, but the old Snap-T's used to be boxier with less material flopping around and below my butt.

Synchilla Snap-T Pullover
It is great, but it is a bit big for me. I have a medium and it is too small and the large is too big. For the record, I am 6’1” and 182 pounds. Truth is this is not the only Patagonia clothing where I find I am in between a medium and large. Having said that, I love Patagonia products and the values you espouse!
Makes a great gift!
I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend’s birthday and he loves it! He wears it almost every day. He prefers this Relaxed Fit version over the Lightweight Synchilla that is more fitted. It’s perfect for wearing around the house but he can also layer it to keep warm while he’s outside. My only complaint is that I wish this fit came in more patterns... Read More!

Really great but not quite as sturdy as previous versions
I really like these. My latest one from winter 2019, however, seems like lower quality than what I'm used to. The collar is incredibly flimsy and doesn't stand up (never has to be honest). My older version's collar always stayed up and looked much less droopy. I would give this 5/5 if the collar were fixed.

Once it cools off, I figure I'll wear different things: hoodies, jackets, various layering, but I always end up wearing these all the time, everywhere I go. People mention pockets and a hood.

Hello Richard! We are so sorry to hear that you are unsatisfied with the fit of this pullover. Please note that you are more than welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return) it at anytime!
Purchased online from Patagonia's website. I wear quarter-zips a lot for cooler and cold weather. I also have the Snap-T Light (#25580 previously reviewed) and this product fits more true to size.

Read Morequot; Patagonia indicates; however, the fit for this version, while also a Relaxed Fit, is more toward a regular although still plenty of room for an under layer and still qualifies as a Relaxed Fit in my opinion. The arm length is also slightly shorter and more true to size for a medium compared to the Light version. Actually I prefer this fit. Obviously a heavier material than the Snap-T Light and for lower temps or less layers. Love the Oatmeal Heather being a light gray (may look light tan in the ads). I also really like the elastic cuffs and waist trim; I personally don't like layers that extend too far below the waist. Great product and while you should always try on any product, I hope this helps if you can't.
Warm warm warm!
I love this sweatshirt! It’s warm, and is pretty stylish. The lightweight synchilla is a bit more comfy than this one, as this one is a bit stiff and I think runs a tad small. The lightweight fits me perfect whereas this one is a bit short in the sleeves. Assuming you have a bit shorter arms than me, I’d highly recommend this for anyone though.
Exactly what i was looking for
I have owned and still own many of the these, both lightweight and this one. I'm 6 foot and about 190, and I think the large is my favorite fit. Most of the ones i have are medium, and they do still fit, but I find that they actually fit a bit too snug for my personal liking. The large is a smidge baggy but that was precisely what I was lookin... Read Moreg for, and I now wish the rest that I own were all larges. I wear a large in most everything so my first few that I got (over many years) were medium due to many of the reviews saying they run baggy and to maybe go down a size, however for me staying in your true size is definitely what I personally recommend, as I feel far more mobile in the large. Regardless of size, I strongly suggest that everyone have a Synchilla Snap-T. They're warm and comfortable, and good for both the great outdoors and being cozy at home.
This pullover is a must have
Comfort (5/5): The Synchilla Snap-T Fleece Pullover is by far the most comfortable piece of outerwear I have ever worn. Whether you are wearing this out in cold weather, throughout your day in the office, or when you are lounging around the house, you will find it hard to ever take it off. I believe the best thing to relate this pullover to is a p... Read Moreortable blanket. After a few times wearing this product, I found myself using this fleece jacket as my blanket when I was finally forced to take it off. The soft material covers both the interior and exterior of the pullover and it truly is hard to compare this fleece to any other kind of blanket or outerwear. If you are someone who can’t resist a soft piece of clothing, skip the sherpa and come straight to this fleece pullover. Fit (4/5): This topic is something I hope you readers really pay attention to. If you like a tighter fitting jacket, then this product is not for you. The Snap-T Fleece Pullover is very baggy - though this is by its design. I have found that this pullover fits very loose throughout the arms, torso, and collar. There is plenty of room for you to have multiple layers underneath so you can fully insulate yourself during the harsher weather. Although this is a loose fit, it does not take away from the overall comfort of this product. For your personal reference when contemplating what size to order, I am 6’1” and roughly 190 pounds and I own this product in a size medium. It is a perfect length and loose fit. Insulation (4/5): You are going to debate whether you actually need a winter coat over this when you have to go outside in cold weather. I have experienced some of the harshest winters thus far at Iowa State and this pullover never fails to keep me warm while I am walking to class. Sometimes I am almost too warm when I wear this. No matter the weather and the activity you’re doing, be prepared to break a sweat. It is totally based on the occasion, but I suggest wearing lighter layers along with this. Nevertheless, this product will definitely keep you warm and has great insulation. Overall Rating (4/5): Overall, this a fantastic piece of outerwear and I always prefer this when I head outside into colder weather or have a casual lounge day at the house. The value is great and it is definitely worth spending a little bit of an extra penny on this pullover. If a warm, extremely comfortable, looser-fitting pullover sounds appealing to you, I hope you strongly consider buying this product!
Awesome fleece, great quality, warm
This has become my go-to top layer. It is really warm and comfortable. The small for this Snap-T is smaller than the lightweight version, so buy accordingly (I initially bought a small but exchanged it for a medium for a very (and I mean very subtly) slightly baggy fit. for reference I am 5'10" 150lbs).

The most comfy fleece I ever owned
I decided to buy my first fleece from Patagonia after owning several jackets from them. I have got to say the fit of this sweater is interesting.

Read Moreally I decided to get one on sale and I'm glad I did. The fleece is not sherpa like and extremely durable. I like sturdy clothes since I'm usually rough on them. It regulates heat when I wore it in the office. I normally would feel scorching wearing my Northface denali. It performs even better outside,with just a base layer,I was omfy in the 40s range. The temperature range from just wearing a t shirt inside are anywhere from low 30s to 60s. I got used to the fit pretty quickly after the initial image. The jacket allows multiple layer inside without issue. I just wish the pocket is a little bigger. After several washes and tested indoor and outdoor,it still looks brand new. Overall,this fleece is worth the money.
Super Warm and Comfy
I just got this recently and it feels and looks awesome. It certainly keeps me warm and doesn't feel overly heavy. Won't be the best to pack into a bag as it doesn't fold too small. Fit is certainly on the larger side. I am 6'0" and 150lbs and the medium is a bit baggy but the arms on a small wouldn't be long enough.
I love it! Super comfy and relaxed!
I am 6 feet and 165 lbs and I opted for the Large. The medium was too short and way too tight at the hip and wrist that it made it umcomfortable.

This is my favorite fleece I've ever owned. It's very comfortable does a great job of sealing in heat. The color options are awesome as well.

I've been wearing this during the recent East Coast cold snap and it has held its own despite the below-freezing temps. It would probably be perfect in the 35-50F temp range. I've seen complaints about the high collar,but you'll appreciate it if you spend any time outdoors in the colder months. I'm 5'11" 180,and I prefer the Large. I've worn a Medium Synchilla for a while now that I received as a gift. The Medium fits,but the Large is just more comfortable and functional. The Medium is a little tight around the shoulders and slightly too slim through the midsection. The biggest issue with the Medium for me is that it rides up the back a little when seated,especially when driving. Also,additional layers do not fit comfortably under the Medium.
Sizing is Large

Have a Snap T for a few years now and Patagonia still makes the same version without hardly updating the classical design or materials.

Crazy colors are offered every year. The oatmeal heather is back every few years as it was difficult to find in years past. Some issues you may encountered: 1.

The fleece slowly gets harder over time so try not to wash with harsh detergents to help slow that though dryer on low dry setting does help 3. It does NOT BLOCK OUT THE WIND! It's the SAME thing with many North Face fleece! The wind WILL CUT THROUGH the fleece. - In cool or warmer temps,it's not much of an issue. - But when you wear it as an outer layer during COLDER temps and there's a chilly wind,You WILL freeze! - Patagonia obviously has Not made its Synchilla fleece dense to block out the wind.

Comfy; but cannot work as a base layer
I agree with others that this pullover is very comfy. Part of this is because it leaves (more than) sufficient space in your arms.

Not as good as my old synchilla pullover
I have a synchilla pullover (black) that I bought over 20 years ago.

Read Morehile and going thru a wash or 2, the fleece will feel/look like my old synchilla. Size wise, the medium is almost exactly the same as the old. The waist on the new synchilla is about 3" smaller in width when I lay it on top of the old one. This makes it harder to take off. Also, the sleeves on the old synchilla are angled downward while the new are just straight (see pic). This causes the material to bunch up at the armpits. Looks kind of funny to me. I'm 5'10", 34" arm length, chest about 40", weigh 175 lbs and I can't imagine going smaller than a size medium especially for a pullover. Sleeve length is just perfect, so if your arms are longer than 34", then the sleeves will be too short for you. It's really a perfect fit for anyone my size. So which one do I prefer? I like the fit on the old synchilla; however, I like the look on the current synchilla. But that's it, so I might return the new one.
I have secretly been coveting one of these for a few years and just decided to bite the bullet. It's great and probably the only fleece I'll ever wear! Very warm and wind resistant. I like the high neck and the cuffs on the sleeves and the waist--all these features keep me toasty warm.
Nice and warm,but a few caveats
These fleeces,both the lightweight and the heavyweight versions,are very comfortable and extremely roomy,with lots of room for layering underneath.

Warm fleece for chilly evenings
Great fleece for hanging out on the porch or the dock on chilly evenings. Its very soft and very warm. I wore it last night outdoors in 60 degree F weather wearing shorts,and it kept my whole body warm. It is also the warmest fleece I own. It can do down to 50 degrees F no problem.

Nice materials. Very comfortable. I got an XL because I am a regular XXL guy and I wanted a sweater a little fit but this XL is like a XXL. Maybe because it is a retro style,I still like it but I am not using it for work because it fits too big! So just to relax!

I love my Snap-T's
I have two of the Synchilla Snap-T's and one of the lightweight versions...this review is for the regular Synchilla Snap-T. I love them and highly recommend them.

I find that any of the Patagonia baselayers (merino or capeline of any weight) works fine underneath a Snap-T if you wanted extra warmth,but also like others have said,there's almost no layering option over a Snap-T that is really workable....it's simply too thick to put something over it.
A Perfect Everything Jacket
I have lots of fleece. Why do I need another one? Well... 'cause the fleece has improved since I bought my first piece 30 years ago, a Patagonia shelled synchilla that won't quit, and because the fit of this thing is so ideal for me. I have never had a Snap-T. I was missing a really multifunctional garment. It is one of those things you ... Read Morenever take off. My house in New England is always cool, except for maybe 10 days a year in July and August. The ideal layer for reading or working on the desktop at night. Great for taking the dogs out for a walk in the AM and PM. Better wind resistance than my old fleece, but still breathable. Patagonia and Malden Mills are putting out garments with superior texture and functionality. My older fleece tends to get flat over time, with wear and washings This has more resilient body to the fabric. The fabric holds its shape with slight stiffness in areas where you want it, shoulders and neck, but supple in the arms and chest. Tailoring is ideal for me 5'9, 140 lbs. A size small is dead on. Not baggy, but still plenty roomy. I think it would be tough to layer on top of this, except a waterproof shell. Better first layers are R2's on top of a capilene base layer. This would fit nicely over the form fitting R2 or just street clothes. The Snap-T is a new favorite. Good for most of the the non-specialized activities I do. I bought two at the wonderful sale price.
I could wear it everyday
So I bought this around january, during the coldest days of Quebec winter, in Canada. This shirt is so comfortable and warm, it was all that I looked for. I could wear it all time.

Please Patagonia powers,consider my plea! ;) This is the only reason I give this product 4 stars,otherwise,it would be 5 stars for sure.
Primary thoughts: This pullover is absolutely fantastic. It is incredibly warm, soft, and durable. The elastic hems keep in heat like no other fleece I've owned.

Great fleece for fall/spring weather in the Upper Midwest. Provides plenty of warmth when you want to pop on a light yet warm layer for hiking,working around the yard or just walking around the city.

Best fleece ever.
Patagonia makes by far,hands down,the best fleece products on the market. There is something about them,especially this piece,which is the best one of them all for casual,every day use,that just emanates quality. It just feels solid,and it's unique,and you can just tell that care and passion was actually put into making it,and you know when yo... Read Moreu put it in on that it's going to last you a very,very long time. It's a little on the baggy side,but that adds to the cozy feel of it and actually adds to the style. It has the thickest,smoothest,and most dense fleece I've ever come across (a combination of traits that mean it will be more durable,more comfortable and "pill" less over time). It's more comfortable than your pajamas,it's more stylish than probably any sweater you own,and it's durable enough to be worn by a lumberjack. I know this will last me upwards of 20 years or more.
The original, and still the best
I've worn fleece jackets and pullovers most of my life (I developed an appreciation for the functionality of fleece while in Boy Scouts), but only recently did I discover the Snap-T. Over the past couple years, I've come to own 4 originals and 2 lightweights, and my wife owns two (she only started buying them after seeing how much I loved... Read More mine)- I don't think we'll buy fleece from a company other than Patagonia ever again. I'm 5'11"/155lbs, have a 34" sleeve/38" chest/32" waist, and the small fits me perfectly. Not only does it have bombproof durability, the Snap-T is one of the most comfortable garments I own. Though it's not wind proof, the banded sleeves and torso keep heat in and cold air out. Sure, the body is a little baggy, but that only helps in trapping in your body heat. The pocket does a fantastic job of keeping items firmly inside, and I've found the snaps to be far more durable than a zipper could be (and far more easily replaceable, in the unlikely event one broke). I've worn mine while running, doing yoga, camping, and hiking. I've worn it with a t shirt and shorts, and I've worn it with a sportshirt and chinos. It works as outerwear on a cool night on the gulf coast just as well as a layering piece on a frigid northern day. Need I go on? Ultimately, it's the most versatile piece of clothing I own. The only downside is that Snap-Ts can be relatively pricey (considering fleece from other brands can be had for 1/5 the price), but you're paying for a garment that will last for years from a company that has a commitment to sustainability. Worth absolutely every penny in my book. I've rambled on enough- buy one and discover for yourself why there's Patagonia, and then there's everything else.
Great for everything.
This is hands down the most comfortable item of clothing I own. It was a gift for christmas last month and even in Florida I have been looking for excuses to wear it as much as possible.

not "relaxed" this year
The Snap-T I bought this year is not my first or only one. I used to love the cut: hard-to-come-by,genuinely-baggy relaxed fit,loose through the arms and chest and sides so that it doesn't pull across the shoulder blades when you reach forward or hug around your own chest,and with enough give in the midsection not to pull or ride up even layin... Read Moreg on the ground or squeezing-in somewhere tight. I saw last year how many people complained about that looseness,and Patagonia seems to have shrunk it down to accommodate people who don't understand what a "relaxed fit" really is. I am size L,but,because of this unreasonable trend toward "slim-fit" tapered everything,I had to exchange this year's for size XL just so it would be loose'and "relaxed". XL,of course,is just too big everywhere and a little frumpier-looking than even I'd like'because it's not my size. In addition,the material itself'or the band at the waist,at least'is not as stretchy this year,making it harder to put on and take off than ever before. Patagonia,if you have to pander to those who,for right now,can't own a single weekend thing,please consider two fits for next year's heavyweight Snap-T: a line of "regular" and a line of (actually) "relaxed".

DEFINITELY recommend this to anyone looking for a good,soft jacket. It is amazingly warm,and also perfect for walking around campus!
Super warm but don't try to sleep in it
This is by far the warmest fleece I have ever owned. Only drawback is the thick seam lines around the upper rib cage which will dig into your side if you try to sleep on your side wearing it. I wear it around the house and it keeps me warm on cold winter days, but have to remember to take it off before I go to bed.

I've lived in Fairbanks for the last 6 years and this jacket is by far the best fleece I've owned.

Very warm, but odd sizing
I wanted a very warm fleece, and this certainly fits the bill. If it's sunny and calm, this can keep you warm through the 40's if you are active. The sizing is a challenge, though. The "relaxed" fit translates into a very loose fit around the chest and shoulders. I normally wear large in Patagonia (and even then, some jackets ar...

50 year old's first Patagonia
I got this for my husband who has never worn patagonia before. He wanted a wool jacket but I knew better. I am not sure he has taken it off since Christmas day when he received it. The temperature has been between 8 and 25 degrees F. and he said the jacket is perfect for feeding horses, chickens, goats, dogs, and cats. Warm and still very movable.
This is a very warm sweater that is super comfortable but it has a very odd fit. The sleeves are giant and bunch up underneath the armpits. I have a Patagonia Snap T from maybe about 8 years ago and it had a more normal cut. Regardless, this is a very comfortable fleece, but consider sizing down when ordering.
I have ordered two Snap T's in the past and this year's version is extremely baggy. I am 6'3" 180 pounds and the large swallows me alive. I have two larges from a few years ago and they fit fine. This year's sizing is out of whack in comparison to past years. Not even sure if sizing down would be sufficient.
I Feel Like A Polar Bear
Although I'm a lady (a quite small lady at that) I ordered this jacket in a medium and I couldn't be more happy with it. It's a bit baggy which is good because I can layer with it. The only problem is, this thing is hot as heck! Maybe I'm just impatient for winter.
Very, Very Baggy
I used to LOVE the Snap-T, but this year's version is very, very baggy. I'm 6'0" 145 lbs. and ordered a small.

I thought you guys were outta business forever...
I'm 19 and my father has a sizable collection of Patagonia apparel.

The thing is older than me and still going hard, I wear it almost as much as the new one. Almost no difference between them except the old one has no chest pocket but it's just as soft and warm. If there is one flaw in Patagonia's business model, it's that their products have absolutely no built-in obsolescence. My father reached his critical mass of Patagonia clothing and hasn't bought anything else for at least 20 years - He's an avid sailor, hunter, fisher and general woodsman, if he can't destroy a fleece, no man can. Simple, classic and will definitely survive a nuclear apocalypse. Highly recommended!

I bought my first Snap-T in the 80's. I still have it, it's egg plant with green trim. I'm wearing it now. Since then I have bought 5 more. If I need to wear a sweater, it's a Sanp-T. The one I bought last month was for my wife. I get her men's because she likes the pocket. She now has 3 of them going back back to the 80&#x... Read More27;s also. I guess it's not hard to figure out that we appreciate them for their warmth, style and durability,
Go-to gear that keeps going...
I bought my first Snap-T Pullover 17 years ago. It is starting to show some signs of its regular go-to use (and abuse?) but still still looks, wears and feels great. Kudos to building such a durable and functional garment. I hope to still be wearing it in another 17 years! Everybody should have one of these versatile layers in their wardrobe.
Patagonia's classic layer. I've owned these before and recently purchased another one. I bought a large and washed it and it shrunk too small... So, I bought an XL, washed it, and it didn't shrink... I'm not sure what the deal is really... A bummer though! I plan to find another one ASAP! A great casual or technical layer!
I had one of these for at least 10 years until I unfortunately left it on a train last Spring. Over the years it had been my main winter garment, and I decided that I just could not do without it, so I replaced it recently with exactly the same one, color and all! I find it to be cozy, warm, and universal. In black it can even serve in a dressy sit... Read Moreuation. It is very roomy and it is easy to fit a sweater underneath, although this is only necessary in the coldest weather. It's easy, funtional, and a bit luxurious.
Couldn't Be Happier
I bought this pullover primarily to wear for crew, but it has quickly become my favorite piece of clothing out of anything I own. Super warm, super durable, super dependable, and the best part is that it looks great. I can't even count how many compliments I've gotten over the past few weeks. The bottom line is that I know this fleece wil... Read Morel never fail me, and it well may be one of the best purchases I've ever made.
I own three of the snap-t's and love them. I also own a similar snap by llbean, but I must say, the snap-t outweighs the llbean by far. During the winter, I wear one of my three every day, and I am planning on buying more as I go off to college. Not only are they warm, but they are comfortable as well and can be worn with anything! I also love... Read More the color selection. My first snap-t was a large which I found too big (I'm about 5'7" 160lbs) so I gave it to my dad...my next three were all mediums and fit perfectly - but were not so small that I couldn't fit an extra layer underneath if needed. Overall perfect fleece...if I had enough money I would buy every color several times over!
Might be the best product ever
Seriously, has there been a more perfectly designed and executed piece of clothing than the Snap-T? I've got two of them. One is about 20 years old. It is ratty and threadbare and beloved. My wife ordered a new one for me, so I'd look more presentable in the winter, spring and fall (or as I call it Patagonia Fleece season). Don't tel... Read Morel my original, but I love the new one too. Even though I feel a tad guilty for cheating on it with the newest Snap-T.
Quality for Generations
This garment was purchased for my daughter for Christmas. She starts the 3rd generation of Snap T wearers in our family! This is a real keeper in the Patagonia line. Typically the colors are better in the men's line so we adjust the sizes to buy for our female family members.
I have three
...and it may be enough. This is as influential a piece of clothing as has ever been made. I got my first the first season they were made, when pile (scratchy, drafty) and bunting (the pill-i-est fabric ever) were the only other "fleeces" there were. I got my second not long after; then my third...it's the first thing on when I hit t... Read Morehe main floor of my place on winter mornings. I could sleep in it (or on it); hike in it; ski in it; and have. You can, too. It goes on trips anywhere in any season. It may have the greatest effective temperature range of any clothing piece, ever. It's hard to believe that there was once nothing else like this on the market. There still is nothing quite like it.
After 20 years, buying my second one
You could say I'm a little tight with a buck, but when I spend them I prefer quality. I've had my first snap t fleece for almost 20 years I think. It's travelled through many many adventures, and with the exception of one small hole I tore on a nail, and a cuff finally beginning to fray, it's perfect! This is one quality piece o...

This is the best piece Patagonia makes. I live in an old drafty house so first thing in the morning it's freezing until the fire gets going. I put this on first thing, the cold is gone. I use this as my primary gear for hiking in the winter and skiing on sunny days. The only issue is my dog sheds and the hairs are hard to remove. My next one w...

This is the best fleece I have ever owned. It stands up to the chilly Colorado nights, works great for layering, and the snap pocket is perfect for holding an extra beer. I have had mine for almost two years and it still seems brand new even though I wear it daily. This is a style and a product that is very versatile and stands the test of time. Bu...

Truly Great Product
As with many on here...the Synchilla Snap-T was the first of many Patagonia items I have owned over the years. I have 4 of them, and the original is just as good as the day it was bought (1995?). Timeless, classic Patagonia style, comfort, and quality. Everyone should have at least one of these.
Make sure you like the color you choose
I bought mine in 1993 and it's still going strong. Very versatile, I sleep in it, wear it out and about, etc. and it seems to fit in in all situations. The fit is a bit on the bigger side, so if you like a more trim fit and are on the border, I'd size down.
The Synch Snap-T Pullover is a Patagonia Classic. It can be used as a sweater, coat, and as a great layering piece. It's stylish enough to wear around town and tough enough for abuse in the mountains. It traps in the heat very efficiently and wears well over the years. It's so comfortable and toasty you never want to take it off!
