Cozy and soft fleece pullover!
This is my first Patagonia jacket, and I was impressed with the quality and feel of the fleece. It was very warm even with just a light cami underneath, and pairs well with leggings for a casual look. Based on reviews, I sized down to an XXS assuming this style ran large; however, the XXS fit me EXACTLY right and I decided to exchange for an XS as ... Read MoreI prefer a looser fit. The elastic at the bottom is a little restricting and i wish it wasn't included, but hopefully it'll be less tight with a size up. The pocket is also not as functional as I hoped, since the sides are sewn down and you can't fully lift the flap up. Other than these issues, I can see myself wearing this pullover throughout the colder seasons-- I even introduced this style to my mom, who loved it and ordered one for herself! For color, I ordered the Berlin Blue eucalyptus frond style. While I usually stick to a neutral palette, I decided to break out of my comfort zone and experiment with a brighter color. The blue is a beautiful baby blue in person and the leaf design is pretty faint unless up close, which I prefer. The pop of pink is also a fun touch-- I'm not one for neon colors, but it's subtle enough to not draw too much attention and adds to the overall style. This may be my first Patagonia purchase, but definitely won't be my last!
Loved it so much, I bought a new one this year
I purchased my first jacket like this last year. In that one I have an XXL and I decided it was time to buy one that fit better so I got an XL this year. The main reason I love these jackets is the quality, but also the comfort. I will say if youve never worn one before its an adjustment as the fabric feels different than any other fleece Ive ever ... Read Moreowned. However, I really do love how warm they actually are. Theyre not heavy, but in windy environments and very cool temperatures (40° or lower) youll still be warm even if you just have a T-shirt under it. Id say its perfect for almost any kind of mild/cooler temps but of course if youre in much colder environments layer up! The sizing is pretty large and not true to size. Ive bought XXL in multiple brands and of course they all fit differently but this one is MASSIVE! The sleeves are very roomy length and width wise, and in an XXL the jacket covers my bottom (I am 52). The sleeves in an XXL also come down past my hands about 4+ inches so yes if you want the sleeves to cover your hand size up! Im fairly certain an XL will provide that roomy fit I love while also being slightly more fitted so it doesnt look like Im swimming in a jacket. At the end of the day, I think the quality and price of this jacket really hit the mark for me. If you take care of it, itll take care of you. Yes, the other reviews are right about the pilling/shedding but after multiple uses its not as bad. I would 100% follow the care instructions and definitely do not wash this unless its heavily soiled.
Comfortable, warm, with retro vibes
I bought this Fleece in the Smolder Blue w/Alpine Blue option and I absolutely adore it. I wear it whenever I have the chance- including casual Friday.

Great but no side pockets
Received this yesterday! Love the color blue with pink trim! Very soft and cozy! Only downside is that this pullover is lacking side pockets! I want to put my hands into pockets constantly! But there are no pockets! Only one chest pocket! The pullover is a bit snug too.
Decline in quality
This is the 3rd Synchilla fleece I've purchased in 10+ years. Immediately, the fleece began shedding and pilling, which never happened with the first two. The pocket is also smaller, so my phone no longer fits and the threading at the bottom has come undone in places. I've only had it for 5 months and it is in worse shape than the other 2...

Pilled After One Wash
Purchased for wife, fleece was great when it first arrived, but after one wash it's pilled quite a bit and looks like it's been worn for years now (unfortunately not in a good way).
Thank you for your comments on this and we are so sorry to hear about the pilling. Unfortunately, pilling with knit garments can be inevitable as it is the nature of those fibers.

I don't want to take it off
I got eucalyptus fronds vela peach. I have never worn XS in a Patagonia top but that's what I ordered based on reviews stating it runs large and it's even a bit large on me. This is cute, comfortable, adorable. It's not sexy. I am 5'3" 128 lbs and I normally wear a small in tops and XS in bottoms.

This is my second Synchilla and overall I feel as if the quality has gone down. I bought my first one nearly five years ago and loved it.

I received one of these for my birthday and was skeptical about how it was gonna fit. The size chart says that XXL only goes up to a 52 inch chest and being that I have a 56-58 inch chest i figured there would be no way that this would fit me.

very disappointed with the quality
I ordered the Dawn Patrol ski pants for my son because I liked mine so much. Mine are at least 2 years old, and are of much better quality. The material is heavier and the suspenders are wider more functional. It is a gift for Christmas, but I will encourage him to return them.

Hi JC, we're sorry to hear this is pilling so much. To prevent pilling, we recommend washing it either by hand in cool to cold water, or separately in your washing machine on the gentle cycle. It's best to lay it flat to dry rather than place it in the dryer where the fabric can easily get upbraided. If this is still pilling after a few washes, definitely feel free to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it back to us under warranty.

I've had my Synchilla fleece pullover for over a year now and feel that its a good time to give a review on quality.

I don't think I would purchase this again due to the fabric and cost.
Hi Caitlin, thank you for your feedback! We’re very sorry to hear about the pilling that has appeared on your sweater over time.

Super cute, but not very breathable and starts pilling after ~3 uses
Love the style of this pullover and it's plenty warm, but I found that this fleece wasn't very breathable (compared to other Patagonia fleeces such as the Better Sweater) and most disappointingly it started looking terrible after about 3 uses due to significant pilling.

We are sorry to hear about the shedding on this Synchilla. Please note, many fleece products will shed on clothing before they are washed. In the future, we'd recommend giving it a wash since that will normally do the trick to stop the shedding.
I got this sweater in Calcium and I don't think I've ever left a non-5-star review for a Patagonia product before... this thing is a LINT MONSTER!

If you pinch the sweater, a pinch of fuzz will easily come off in your fingers, no tugging required. I don't want to wear it because it's so destructive, despite being quite cute. Please Patagonia, it's sort of inconvenient for me but more importantly, this has got to add up to a LOT of microplastic in the air and the water.
Hey there! Thanks for writing such a detailed review, we appreciate it. We apologize that the Synchilla is so fuzzy, and that it it getting everywhere! We don't want you to be stuck with anything you don't love, so I will contact you directly with return information.

I ordered a Medium and it fit great. Super warm, only problem is that it sheds like crazy until you wash it once, and then it becomes pilly and looks a little more worn than it should. Other than that, a great product that lasts for years and years!
Sleeves are too long and big
I love the look of the Synchilla Pullover, but when I received it in the mail the sleeves were long and wide. I have broad shoulders and average length arms so this is not a problem I usually have. I tried on a size smaller and it was still obvious that the sleeves were too long and wide.

Don't Mess with the Classics
I can't even tell you how many of these jackets I've had over the years.

I was really hesitant to purchase this item because I am an XL in most jackets and its just general knowledge that most companies think an XL should fit like a L and its frustrating.

Love the synchilla fleece. I have two in this style and another one with a zipper. Ordered another one for my husband. Amazing for work and outdoor activities. Warm and cozy. Well actually I’m wearing it all the time. Runs very big. I’m 5’4 and 121lbs. Usually I’m wearing a S sometimes M but here I need XS could also go with XXS but I like it a lit...

Excellent Customer Service
I was given a synchilla fleece three months ago, and it pilled incredibly fast. I didn’t use it much in those three months, and the fabric looked terrible. The elbows were totally worn down. I took it into the store and they exchanged it straight across, no questions asked. Fingers crossed it was just a fluke - I love it! However, I wish there were... Read More extended sizes. I’m a 6’1” tall woman and this is barely long enough. The L is much better length wise, but way too bulky and big around. Unfortunately it’s the only Patagonia fleece or sweater that had sleeves that were sort of long enough. Please make more sizes!
I love everything about this fleece. I wear it everywhere and get so many compliments on it. It keeps me warm but it isn't bulky. The only thing that would improve this pullover is if it had a bigger pocket. Besides the lack of a usable pocket, it's my favorite piece of clothing in my closet!
Comfy, but definitely a relaxed fit (NOT regular fit)
I don't know why, but Patagonia is constantly changing the fit on this item. I initially bought a M, then had to go to a L, and now the L seems roomier than last year's version. But the fabric and construction remains the same. The only thing I'm a little disappointed in are the shifting sizing and the extra tight hemline elastic. Pa... Read Moretagonia is usually very consistent within their fit guidelines, but I feel they missed the mark on this, especially for this season with it being even looser than usual. All model photos show the synchilla being worn with the hemline exposed. If you were to do this, the elastic would be super tight (for those of us women with hips... like any at all). I'd actually really like the hemline to be as loose as it looks in the photos (not super loose, but looser than it actually is) as I currently have to "tuck" the hemline up and let the edge fall over it; otherwise the hemline is constantly riding up. I mean, if you look at the photos of the pieces off the models the hemline seems not elastic at all - it's even with the edge of the material. In reality, you would have to be stretching the hemline to have it hang like this. All that being said, they do have a marsupial version that probably fits more like what I'm wanting. Unfortunately the color selection on it is not at all what people have come to enjoy about the synchilla. So I stick with the original because it is super comfy and, bad photographs/modeling aside, is a really great piece that can really be "personalized" considering the colors available.
Comfy everyday fleece
Have owned this for about a month and I've worn it very frequently since. I'm a student and it's perfect for going to class. I've also worn it underneath the nanopuff jacket and it keeps me really warm. I'm 6'0 and 150-155 lbs, and the M was a good sleeve length. The only thing is that the sleeve width is really big, s... Read Moreo your arms are kind of swimming in the sleeves. The chest is good (I'm about a 34 D) but I have a lot of room in the waist. I tried on the S too which was nice in the waist, but a little tight in the chest. The S overall was too short for me too (again I'm 6'0 so I'm not surprised). Overall I think it's a good everyday fleece if you're one of those people who doesn't mind if it's super form fitting and you care more about the coziness.
I’ve had the same two synchillas for many years, I ordered a new one because they’re the best. I got a Small (like always) but it fits me like a Large. When I hold it up to my smalls to compare you can tell it is so much longer that anusual. Idk what happened but I’m really sad I have to return it
Fantastic prints, very comfortable but could use some improvements
I'm 5'3" and a few pounds heavier than I'd like to be. I can fit into a medium and a large. I absolutely love the prints and would very much like to see Patagonia produce some of these with political messages. The synchilla fleece does pill at first, and it takes a few washings to stop the fuzzy balls from permeating the rest of... Read More my clothing. In addition, the garment is missing a kangeroo pocket, which would make it just about perfect. The little chest pocket holds maybe a chapstick and a couple of dollars--not large enough for cell phones or wallet.

Feel very unique when I wear this.
Not for the chubsters.
If you have even a smidge of self consciousness I don't recommend buying this. I bought one for me and my fiance and we looked about 100 lbs heavier than we are. We are returning, as we'd never want top wear them out in public. I'm also about 5'8 and the large was still too short to look good. We aren't huge people, we prob... Read Moreably have some average fluff, and we were so disappointed in how these looked on. The arms are massive creating puffs of air everywhere and the hem has an elastic feel to it which creates more of a muffin top bubble around your hips. There is no form of flattery here and I dare say I'd never want to wear it outside of the house. If they made this in a fitted version I'd be gungho but the have to go back. I KNOW buying a medium wouldn't have made it better, not to mention I'd lose length in the torso area. Sad, sad day. For specifics. Me: 5'8 200lbs Him: 5'11 190lbs

Amazing sweaters! Worth the money!
I own 3 of these and they are amazing sweaters! The fit is loose so you can layer under it or wear it baggy by itself.

Overall, stop reading the reviews and get yourself one of these sweaters already!

This is a must-have fleece. It's warm, comfy, comes in fun colors. The button down snap is awesome because it doesn't mess up your hair when you pull it on and off. This is my favorite piece of clothing from Patagonia. You can wear it running or casually just to hang out. It is super comfy and not too hot. I wear it at least once a week.
Perfect gift for any lady in your life
I purchased one of these for my sister, and one for my girlfriend over the course of the past year and I haven't seen either of them use a layer more than this.

Ordered this a week ago and it arrived exactly when they estimated it would. I am thoroughly impressed by this product and every product I have bought from this brand so far. This pullover is a timeless piece that can be worn for a numerous amount of activities from lunging around the house to hiking in the Rockies in winter
Please Make Sleeves Longer
Let me start by saying that these pullovers are so warm and comfit that I gave out 4 of these last Christmas as gifts to my family. Everyone loved it,including my grandma,who not only kept hers but also stole my grandpa's because the male version actually fitted her better than the female version (and the male version is also thicker than the ... Read Morefemale version,way better for winter in cold climate.) However,the sleeves are a bit too short for me (5'9'',130,size S),and they keep getting shorter over the first few washes and is now at an awkward length between "maybe I can still wear them" and "I should definitely donate them. My boyfriend (6'4'',190,size M) also bought the men's version of this pullover,and it looked more like a 3/4 sleeve than a long sleeve on him,so we had to return it. We both spend a lot of time hiking and have a lot of friends who are in similar shape as us. We absolutely love these fleeces for keeping our loved ones warm,but we want to wear them ourselves too! Please consider making a 'tall' version of this pullover or making the sleeve as long as other brands' (we have no problem fitting into other outdoor brands such as TNF,Marmot,Lululemon,etc). We look forward to be able to get one that actually fits us this fall/winter season.
Warm & Fuzzy
I was a little skeptical about purchasing this item,concerned that like most fleece pullovers it would have a short torso. Not the case with this fleece,I was impressed by the fit and the comfort of the Synchilla. Finally I had found a fleece that fit me perfectly. I have a hard time taking it off because its the coziest piece of clothing I own!
Not bad at all
This pullover was comfortable,warm,and comes in a variety of color combinations. I really liked it,but ultimately returned it because I wanted something that was a little more fitted.

The fit of this product is true to size. I am an average build,5'7,and I ordered a medium. One observation so far,however,is that out of the bag,the product was shedding many tiny fibers,I threw the fleece in the wash to see if this helps the problem,but I worry about further shedding and shrinking with excess laundering.

I previously purchased a Los Gatos vest in the recommended size (M) and it was huge. I realized the sizing was not complimentary to curves and bought a Retro X in extra small instead. That was a better fit but is extremely stiff and I have washed it several times. As soon as I received this synchilla fleece I knew it was my new favorite. I do not want to take it off. Just do it while the sale lasts. You will not regret it. Colors are true to the site displays,and shipping was quicker than expected .

I bought this hoodie in Yellow because I just fall in love with the color. I was used to Patagonia high end clothing but this one... I don't know what happened.

I was disappointed with the fleece and the customer service I received when I called Patagonia. The care label says nothing about drying instructions.

Very disappointed.
Runs HUGE but very nice if you get the right size
I LOVE Patagonia Synchilla Snap T pullovers and the wishtails is lovely and very warm,however,this particular style runs huge. I am 5' 3",about 134 lbs,34B,age 57 and the size picker recommended a size M for me. After reading the reviews that it runs large,I ordered a size Small.

This jacket is a perfect option if you are looking for a casual jacket that is super warm but nicer than a sweatshirt! It is vey durable as I have washed it many times and is still in awesome shape,so it is very comforting knowing that it will last and is okay to wear outside. It would be an awesome thing to wear outside while it is in the 50 degree area. This fabric is extremely comfortable and warm. Since the fabric is fleece,it is breathable as well and will always be a good go-to jacket. Since this fleece jacket is nicer than a sweatshirt,it is even able to be worn to work! Paired with some jeans and boots will create a perfect outfit for a relaxed environment at work. It would be perfect for someone who would like to stay warm and comfortable at work. One negative that I have noticed within this jacket,is that the collar tends to pop up randomly instead of staying folded over. It does make it a little uncomfortable,but once you wear the jacket a few times and wash it,it tends to get a little more relaxed so the collar will stay down easier. An easy fix! Another huge positive to this jacket is its modesty! Many of the jackets that button up,do not button up very high. This jacket's buttons are very accommodating and will be comfortable and covering for anyone who purchases the jacket! With all of the different color options,this fleece jacket is a perfect fit for anyone! For someone who wants something different,they can choose one of the brighter colored jackets or one of the patterns. For me personally,I love things that are a little more subtle,but still have color to them. That's why the olive green was such a perfect fit for me! Over all I think this jacket is a perfect fit for anyone who is looking for a warm and comfortable jacket for the fall or winter months. It is extremely durable and I am sure that this jacket can last you for a very long time!

It gets the job done!
I bought a printed lightweight Synchilla back in fall 2017 and so far,I've loved it for it's warmth and throw-on-ability. It's nice enough for casual wear,but gets the job done outdoors,too. The only thing I miss in the Synchilla is the kangaroo pocket on the front - I find myself rubbing my belly looking for a place to stash lightwe... Read Moreight things that don't fit in the chest pocket. In comparison to the Re-tool Snap-T,this "lightweight" fleece is significantly warmer,thicker,and sized differently (note the "Slim" fit of the Re-tool vs. "Regular" for Synchilla lightweight). I wear a women's L in Re-tool and a M in this one,a 5'3" and 150lbs. I do like the fit of both,but I find the bottom band of the Synchilla a little too snug - it does ride up with activity. The thickness and warmth of this fleece is similar to a thick wool sweater,and I've needed only a thin wicking layer underneath for a hike in 40F. I've even gotten too warm in this layer and at those times,I wished it could be a little more breathable. The Re-tool lets wind in,which is sometimes good,sometimes bad. This fleece is bulky beneath an outer layer,in my opinion,more so than the Re-tool. Not sure about calling this one "lightweight," for these reasons. Overall,another great layer from Patagonia that covers some of the bases left open by others!
Great to just throw on
I currently own 3 Patagonia pullovers. I loved the past two. I owned a men's and women's.

Incredible fleece once you figure out your size
For those who are puzzled by sizing hopefully these metrics will clarify how this fits for similar heights and weights as I have tried them all on from size S, XS to XXS. I am 5'4, 123 lbs and usually wear a size small in Patagonia clothing. The small was baggy and looked like I was swimming in it . The XS started to have the right dimension... Read Mores but I found it to be oddly boxy and the sleeves wide and long. I started to get nervous upon trying on an XXS thinking it'd be too short or tight. It's not! I love this- it's roomy for an under layer but it doesn't look oversized. The sleeves are the perfect length and it falls at my hip. I would say the fit of this sizing for the XXS is like the retool pullover in a Small. Patagonia, please keep the sizing more consistent- I had to spend a lot of money on return labels just to find the right fit. I love my Synchilla in this weird loud print it keeps me cozy and warm. I find it to be windproof and that it keep the chill away. I'd have given this 5 stars if it wasn't for the sizing discrepancy which seems to be the crux of returns on it.

First thing: this fleece is awsome! It's soft,warm,comfy,not to bulky,but not to light either. Really,in my opinion there is nothing more to ask from a fleece! Now,the whole question about the sizing... This item is a "regular sizing" item according to Patagonia's chart,it means that it's suppose to be a bit loose and room... Read Morey and it's exaclty like that! Should you size down? I chose to "size down": i'm 5'5",125 pounds,with large shoulders and I usually wear M in clothes even thought I fit in S because I like my clothes with a looser fit,BUT this fleece is already made to be loose so I bought an S! The fit is great,I can fit a layer under it,but it doesn't look too big for me. So here is my advice: choose the smallest size you normally fit in! Don't go smaller than your actual size,or else the length won't fit well,and don't go bigger if you don't want to be drown in it! I know that all this sizing question about that fleece make it hard to choose when you want to buy it,at least it did for me... That's why I chose to go try it in store before ordering the one I wanted,I think it's the greatest option if you're really not sure. I hope it helped you!
Runs a full size too big, but super cute!
I bought this and will be returning it, probably not for a smaller size. I wasn't impressed it with enough to bother exchanging. I am 5'4", 135 pounds, and I wear a medium in every Patagonia top I've ever owned. This thing was big! I'm not concerned with bagginess, as it's an unfitted fleece, but if you look at the sho... Read Moreulder seams, they are way off my shoulders. A true-fitting medium would be right in line with my shoulders. The fleece is also very, very long in the sleeves. My hands are almost entirely consumed by them. The whole thing is quite long, actually. So, it's too big, but I don't think I'd like a smaller size, either. The way the waistband is tight around my thighs, I think I won't like how it blouses out. Not for me, but cute pattern!
Why just one useless pocket?
I've been wanting one of these things for ages,I'm talking like eyeballing the different prints for close to 5 years... The reason I didn't buy one earlier is because I'm a pocket girl and this has no useable pockets. I finally caved and bought one and eventhough I really like it,i just can't figure out why Patagonia can&#x... Read More27;t make a great piece greater and give me some great pockets! OK,Great? Great!
The best way to describe the feeling of the material itself is like a fleece blanket. It's so soft and I have to admit, I took a nap right after I put it on because it was so comfy. It doesn't keep you so warm that you'll sweat indoors wearing it, but when layered with a shirt underneath, you could probably go hiking in mid 40-50 deg... Read Moreree weather. The snaps help to block out the cold from your neck and becasue this pullover doesn't zip, you don't have to worry about your hair getting caught! I will definitely be taking this with me on my hikes up Max Patch and Blood Mountain in the spring becasue of its versatility. My only complaint is that the band at the bottom of the garment is a little tight, so the bottom tends to creep up as soon as you put your arms up. I have a long torso, though, so it would definitely be less of a problem on someone who has a shorter one. It's best to do your research before purchasing a snap t, especially becasue the sizing varies so much from person to person, but this is the best advice I can give: -If you have any doubts about your size, go by the size chart on the website -If you have a larger bust or hips, buy your normal size -If you're slimmer like me (I'm 5'4 and 105 pounds) size down (got an xxs instead of my normal xs) -If you have a longer torso, look up the garment measurements before doing anything. I have a long torso and because of how the waistband rides up, it can get pretty short **It's ALWAYS a good idea to try on a new style of Patagonia gear in a store before you buy it! Waiting to go out and try something on isn't fun, but it's worth it when you end up with a garment that fits perfectly. You won't always get lucky by guesstimating!**
Review on sizing
I've been reading all the reviews about how sizing is crazy with this item,so I finally decided to just go try it on at the store... For reference,I'm 5'5" 120 lbs 30DDD chest,26" waist and 38" hips,shorter on top with longer legs. Based on reviews I was going to order an XS,but when I tried it on in the store,I ended ... Read Moreup deciding between a S and a M. I think the reviews that rant about how huge this item is are trying to wear it as a somewhat fitted sweatshirt - whereas I always think of a fleece as like a cozy toplayer that could fit another sweater underneath. I guess it just depends on how you want to wear it. The main difference between S and M is that the Medium was longer (hem and sleeves!) - also obviously a little bigger throughout - but I could easily pull it down past my butt and it stayed there comfortably. The bottom elasticized hem of the S was also a bit tighter,and it hit about the middle of my bum - not awkwardly,but just a few full inches shorter than the M. (I don't know the length measurements,but just eyeballing it,the M was much longer). I decided on the S - cozy but a bit more streamlined than the M. For reference,I wear a M in the Torrentshell and the Nano Air jackets. I also tried on the XS fleece and it fit pretty perfectly up top,but the hem was too tight to pull down over my hips comfortably,and like I mentioned,I like my fleece to fit a little roomier. I think it fits true to size if you're talking "regular fit" which is a little roomy,if you want it fitted,order down - but know that in addition to getting smaller overall,it will also get shorter and tighter at the hem.
Warm & Cozy!
I purchased an XS in this after reading many reviews. I normally wear a size small in puffy jackets,and sweaters and a medium in jackets. After reading the reviews and realizing that this sweater is regular fit lose fit style I decide to size down to an XS. I am glad I did.

I absolutely love this jacket. It's warm enough that I'm nice and cozy on chilly days,and roomy enough that I don't start sweating as soon as I enter a building.

First Patagonia Purchase
First off,I do not like ordering online when I haven't tried on an item,especially when I've never worn the brand and when there isn't free returns/exchanges. However,after reading reviews and speaking with customer service I reluctantly ordered because of the sale. Typically I am an XS in most brands. I'm 5'3,106 lbs.,32A.... Read More The only size available in a color I preferred (nickel/epic blue) was an XXS (some of the prints/colors available aren't very flattering for someone in their late 30's). I was a bit anxious,even though most reviewers stated that they sized down due to this fleece running a bit large. I like my clothes to fit,but not be restricting. I was pleasantly surprised once I tried this on,it fits with plenty room for a baselayer,I wouldn't want to add much more than that as it is really warm.
Warm, Comfy, Cute!
If you're thinking about it, buy it. The fleece is so warm and fluffy, it is seriously one of the best investments I have made for those cold upstate NY winters. Not to mention the patterns are colorful and trendy. Im 5'3, 34B and 110lb and by no means do I have an athletic build so I was worried when the only size left for this was an XX... Read MoreS. I usually gravitate towards S in other clothing but after using the "Whats my size?" tool, I figured I would be fine with the XXS, and I was. Its roomy enough to layer on cold days, but its warm by itself. I cant wait to take this hiking!
I wear a medium in everything. I'm 5'6" 140lbs and this was at least 1 to 2 sizes too big. My 6'3" 225lb husband fit in the jacket better than me. That being said this seemed like a great jacket minus the sizing issue. Very comfortable and lightweight. I will definitely be trying to find one I can try on to get the right si... Read Moreze.
I bought this looking for something to wear when it was just cold enough that a long-sleve shirt wasn't quite enough and it's perfect! It works for colder than that,but when it heats up I haven't overheated while still wearing it! I wore it on a 50 degree casual bike ride and it was great!
Everything you could want in a fleece!!
I bought my first one just a few weeks ago and was slightly hesitant as I wanted to buy a cheaper one first,in case it didn't live up to my expectations,but all they had was XXS and I'm usually XS or S. I bought it and figured I could return it if it didn't fit. I was so happy when I received it since it fit and was everything I want... Read Moreed and more!! It didn't take me long to buy another one and it is just as amazing! I do not find that it has a chemical smell to it as some reviews said. I do find that it runs large and being 125lbs and 5"7,the XXS is perfect. I get tons of compliments and couldn't be happier with my fleece! I can't wait to wear it in winter because I know I'm going to be extremely warm and cozy! Thanks for a fantastic product!!
This pullover is soft and comfy with a loose fit. It's perfect for a chilly morning or fall day. My only complaint is that the material smelled like burnt rubber when it arrived. Disappointing to have to wash it multiple times before wearing it to try to get rid of such a strong and unpleasant smell
I ordered a small (which have always worked well) and was assuming it would be lightweight as billed.

I have a very strong love for Patagonia products and after sharing that fact with my boyfriend, he decided to surprise me with this pullover.

I'm beyond impressed and am excited to order more for the upcoming fall and winter!
This fleece is great for chilly mornings and nights. It is just the right amount of warm. I wish it didn't have elastic on the bottom,because as a short person it hits me awkwardly on the bottom. I have to either fold it up and under at my waist or pull it down past my bottom which doesn't look good because of the elastic. Overall,this is... Read More an awesome buy!
I love my fleece so much! It is perfect. A little over two months ago I got the Patagonia Women's Cotton Quilt Snap-T' Pullover as a gift (size small) and love it so much I decided I wanted to get another Patagonia! I'm 5'2,14 years old,and relatively skinny. It's on the bigger side but not too bad and i like sweatshirts an... Read Mored pullovers to be on the bigger side anyways. I got the two toned light blue torso and dark blue/teelish sleeves and although it is similar to the Quilt Snap,the style is different enough. This fleece (in my opinion) is more comfy and causal vs the Quilt Snap which is a little bit nicer and I don't really wear it as a sweatshirt but I love them both....just for different occasions. It's perfect for all seasons and so soft!! Not too bad of a price for Patagonia! Partly why I got it and got the Quilt Snap as a gift! Even though I only got it a few days ago I would definitely recommend it to a friend! Patagonia is really a great brand!
I'm in love with this jacket
I love this pullover!!!! I wore it almost every day on my trip to acadia national park where temps didn't get above 50 degrees Fahrenheit for the whole week I was there. it's so warm but not too bulky,and it managed to keep my other layers dry when I got soaked by a giant wave at thunder hole!
Incredibly Soft- Runs LARGE
5'2 120lbs- wear 36B (but I am fairly small chested) I purchased in size XS and it was too big. The pullover was long (went past my butt) and it was very boxy. Sleeves were perfect length.

Love this! So cute,comfy,and warm! Love the owls:) Bought a size larger than I usually wear because I wanted it to be a little bit bigger but fits true to size! I usually wear a Medium but bought a Large and it is a little bigger,could have gone medium but like I said,I wanted it a little larger.
I'm in love.
I have owned this fleece for 5 months now and I'm still as in love as the day I bought it. It's cozy and warm. Light enough for a spring or fall day,but keeps you warm for winter too. I would buy this again a hundred times over. Also the print makes me super happy and has gotten me many many compliments. Thanks Patagonia. You guys rock.
This fleece is very comfy and kept me warm while I was camping in Georgia and North Carolina this past winter and late spring. It's looser-fitting compared to other fleeces I own so when I wear it hiking,it provides warmth and just the right amount of ventilation. The fit was as-described.
Warm and fuzzy!
Great sweater. Feels incredible. Love wearing it just hanging out or for casual outdoor activities. Fairly resistant to water (I can wear it in a light shower and don't end up being damp all day). I ordered and extra large to be safe since I have an in-between body size for most size charts and wide shoulders. It ended up being a little bigge... Read Morer than expected,but I don't mind that for a sweater,since I can layer underneath without worry. It's mostly just long,not overly large around. I feel if you're ordering your true size,but worried about sleeve length or body length,it's probably going to fit just fine with enough length in it.
Love the Prints!
First I ordered the timber twist: cinder red in medium as I do like my pullovers oversized. The medium is a good baggy size and I like the length,but the width of the bottom of the sleeve was entirely too wide,it truly appeared that the elastic bands at the bottom of the sleeve was totally stretched out. I contact customer service and they stated i... Read Moret seemed like a defect and replaced it for free and sent me a label to return the defective one. The replacement came in and the width and the elastic bands of the sleeves were slightly better,there was a noticeable difference,but the end of the sleeve was still wide due to elastic and with either pullover the sleeves would fall if I pushed them up. The print of this pullover is beautiful and it's very toasty! I then ordered a small and the sleeve width is MUCH better,but the body length is not quite as long as I would like. I did also order the Moon Owl: Harvest Moon Blue in small as well. That print is my favorite! It's just so bright and gorgeous!! I agree sizing is just kind of wonky with the bottom of the sleeve widths,the length of the sleeves didn't bother me as they're on the longer size. I do own the full zip re-tool fleece jacket in medium and have no issues with the sizing with that piece! I do wish they would add pockets to this pullover!! I keep finding myself trying to shove my hands in the nonexistent pockets. That is my number one compliant ahead of the sleeve widths. If they would add pockets to this pullover I would order them in every color! Customer service is top notch as well!
so comfy !!!
This is exactly what I wanted. The fit is larger (I have a size large in the Re-Tool Snap-T Pullover...it's a little smaller than the size medium synchilla) but super comfortable and the colors are amazing! I cannot wait to move back North where I will be able to wear it more often.
I absolutely love this pullover! I've been purchasing from Patagonia for a few years now and I'm never disappointed! I own a few of the Re-Tool Snap-T but I really wanted the traditional fleece.
