does run small
I’m 5’3”, 112 lbs, and usually get Small size in Patagonia clothing. After reading other reviews, I got this sweater in Medium, and it’s great for me. Good long sleeves, long body, not at all too big in shoulders or torso. I don’t know yet about the complaints of pilling, but I assume that following directions will be a good idea . . .
Great Quality, runs small

We appreciate your feedback, Angela! This jacket has a Slim Fit design, so if you prefer a more generous cut, we recommend taking a look at the [Regular and Relaxed Fleece styles for Women](https://www.patagonia.com/shop/womens/fleece/jackets?prefn1=fit&prefv1=regular%7Crelaxed). Reach out to our Customer Service team if you have any questions. We'll be glad to help!
I have desired this style for quite some time. Finally ordered and very happy!!! I sized up to M. Just a bit more room for layering.
We're so glad to hear that you're happy with this fleece, Ruth! With the Slim Fit design, the Better Sweater fits a bit closer to the body than our Regular and Relaxed Fit styles, so some customers will size up to get the look or feel they prefer. Don't hesitate to reach out to us with any questions you may have about the product or services. We'll be glad to help!
Great but pilled like crazy
I love this jacket - the fit is awesome and it feels so nice on. I even had it embroidered for my medical school. However, it began pilling all over the jacket after just the first wash, and I do not put it in the dryer at all. It's pretty disappointing given how much it costs, plus I spent even more on it to get my school's name on it. I... Read Moret takes away from the nice appearance because of all the pilling.
Hi Melissa, due to the knit appearance of the face fabric on this particular item, pilling can be more noticeable. To prevent pilling, we recommend washing that item 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 abraded. To remove pilling that has already occurred, a [sweater shaver or sweater stone](https://www.amazon.com/s?k=sweater+stone&crid=3E0T0NLRHN2Q5&sprefix=sweater+stone%2Caps%2C261&ref=nb_sb_noss_1.) is an excellent tool and can help the garment look brand new again.
Fine so far
I haven't had this too long. I needed a layer that would still stay warm when wet. I haven't had a chance to test yet. I don't love the color. It doesn't look like the picture. It's much less green and more tweedy gray. The jury is still out on this. I would really like companies to ask me to rate 6 months to a year after p... Read Moreurchase.

To submit a review, scroll to the bottom of the product page and click on "Write a Review" underneath the Reviews header (it's the black section of the page).

Material is thinner than past versions
Hi Patagonia! The Better Sweater fleece products are my favorite! I treat myself to one almost every year.

Thats my primary concern. I always purchase ... Read Morethem because I KNOW it will be super warm and toasty. We'll see. (p.s.

Hey there Amanda! Thank you for your review of the Women's Better Sweater Jacket. We are sorry to hear that you are disappointed in the fabric and price compared to the previous year's. We appreciate your feedback on this. If it ends up being too thin, you are welcome to return it. You can visit our [Returns Portal](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) or reach out to us, we are always happy to help.
Disappointed that the fit of this jacket was changed. It is much longer than the older style making it unflattering.
Hello Kassi, thank you for your review. We're very sorry to hear of your disappointment in the fit of this jacket. We looked up product information in our database and it looks like the last redesign we did was in Fall of 2019, but we didn't change anything about the fit. The fabric went from 0% - 100% recycled polyester and trims. Perhaps you had a version that went even farther back than that. If that is the case, we encourage you to browse our lightly-used past season options on [Worn Wear](https://wornwear.patagonia.com/shop/search?q=better%20sweater).
Slim fit, doesn't.
I so wish you made this sweater in a style that was not a slim fit (sans the shaping seams which frankly are unattractive on all but the tiniestof us) and speaking of short, I also wish you offered things in petite.

Very Strange Fit
This is the strangest fitting fleece. I originally ordered a medium for a relaxed fit, when I received the item I thought I had maybe just received a defect/second.

The variation of the two was also so crazy, makes me think they are being made much cheaper unfortunately :(
Hi Mallory, thank you for your review of the Women's Better Sweater Jacket. We're sorry to hear that the fit wasn't what you were expecting.

First year I cant wear these
I have been wearing these off and on for years. I always liked how slimming they were and or tailored and not broad at the shoulders. Perhaps some thought they ran small. This year they changed.

Great color and warm for those fall cool nights
I borrowed this jacket from my friend in Hermosa beach on a cold 55 degree late afternoon and it was cozy warm as we rode our bicycles to dinner. I loved the jacket so much I bought a small size for myself. I am 5'9, 147 lbs and the small size fit perfect.
Warm but scratchy
Warm fleece jacket but the whole jacket is piling up a lot. Inside feels scratchy and itchy especially when I wear it in dry weather. It feels uncomfortable. I expected better quality with the price I paid.
Hey Khin, thanks for the review. We're sorry to hear of your disappointment in this jacket. Knit items can pill over time and it typically is the result of friction. If you'd like to try to remove the pilling yourself, we recommend referencing [this handy tutorial](https://youtu.be/2aFbPb6Rn8o). Otherwise, you're welcome to send the jacket in for a warranty evaluation for merchandise credit or a refund. If you're interested in an alternative option, we recommend the Women's Los Gatos Hooded Fleece Pullover because it is ultra soft.
Seems like a nice jacket if you happen to have the exact measurements its cut for. All my measurements are small but this was both too big (arms) and too small (chest). When I ordered a small I did not mean I wanted to average medium sized arms with extra small sized chest.
Thank you for the feedback, Amy! We're sorry to hear that the fit was off for you. All of our items come in different fits: form-fitting, slim, regular and relaxed. Our Women's Better Sweater Fleece Jacket has a slim fit, so perhaps that is why it felt tighter than normal in the chest. You can check the fit of any item by going to the product page and clicking on the "Fit" tab underneath the product description. We're also happy to provide you with garment measurements if the size guide is not working well for you, you'll just want to connect with the customer service team. If you'd like to exchange for a size up you're welcome to do so, otherwise you can check out our other women's fleece options [here](https://www.patagonia.com/shop/womens/fleece).

Super cute and tailored fit
I have wanted this jacket for years finally purchased it in a color other than black! The jacket runs small- I am primarily a XS in Patagonia jackets- but in this one I required a small to zip it and still breath! Love the style- you can dress it up or down- very versatile. Cant wait for it to get cold in California so I can wear it!!!
My biggest issue with this jacket is that it is too hot to wear in cooler weather but does not keep you warm at all in colder weather. Ive only worn it a couple times in the past two years because each time I put it on its just uncomfortable. I think whatever material it is made out of is too thick to be a nice light jacket for fall weather and not... Read More insulating enough for colder weather. Im honestly surprised its so popular.

You made my girlfriend happy which is better than I can do most days...
The product came on time and was exactly what I ordered. Even better it fit my girlfriend well and and was true to size. The only downside was that I now will have to do more in the future to make my girlfriend as happy as she was receiving this. So I guess thanks alot Patagonia...
Beautiful new colors!
Love the new colors (night plum and nouveau green). This sweater is true to size. I'm always a small and the fit of the small is flattering. Other reviewers say to size up, but I wouldn't unless you like a looser fit. I have one from 3 years ago that I use a lot and it still looks new.
cut very small
I'm 5'6" 138 pounds and ordered a medium, it was so small that I was doubtful that even a large would fit.
Thanks for the review Barbara. This jacket does have a slim fit, which could be why it felt so small to you. You can check the fit on any item by going to the product page and clicking on the fit tab.

Laying flat, the size large has a 21.75" bottom hem, a 21.25" chest and it's 24" in length. Feel free to reach out if you need anymore info!
Exactly what I was looking for
I had a knock-off version of this jacket for many years that started to fall apart, so I figured it was time to upgrade to the real thing. It is exactly what I was looking for and what I expected. I initially ordered a size up based on reviews, but it was definitely too big-- I exchanged it for my normal size which fits perfectly.
Arms feel tight
I followed the size guide and my sweater feels tight. Slightly uncomfortable in the arms too and the sleeves are a tad bit short. I should have ordered an XL. I am 5ft 6in and 160lbs for reference. This runs on the tighter side imo. Debating on if I want to reorder. The cost is high as well.
Hi Tamara, thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. We're sorry to hear this jacket didn't fit you better! It is cut with a slim fit, so some customers prefer to size up. If you'd like to return or exchange it, please feel free to [return or exchange](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it at any time as we want you to be completely satisfied with all of your Patagonia products. Also, our Customer Service Team will be happy to help you find the ideal fit for any garment based on your measurements. Please let us know how we can help!
Plea to Patagonia
Please return the hood to this sweater. I had one with a hood for ages, but I wore it out. And now I'm forced to buy the running jacket because it has a hood. I like the seater material so much better.
Hey Georgene, thanks for the review. We have some good news, we do have a hooded version of this jacket available! You can check it out [here](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-better-sweater-fleece-hoody/25539.html?dwvar_25539_color=NENA&cgid=womens-sweatshirts-hoodies).
Not as soft as I would like
I usually wear a small but I ordered a medium and it is still a little tight
Hey Vi, thanks for the review! We're sorry to hear that the Better Sweater is not as soft as you were anticipating, and a bit tight. This fleece does have a slim fit.

Peculiar, inaccurate sizing
5 ft 8, 142 lbs. I usually wear a medium jacket. This was laughably tight in the back and arms and looked way too small. I sized up to a large and it was enormous and clearly too big. The sizing is off and bizzare - I am not shaped unusually and always wear a medium. Neither size fits!
Hi Ashleigh, thank you for submitting this review. The Better Sweater Jacket is cut with a slim fit, and some customers find it runs a bit snug. We're sorry to hear neither size fit you well! Please know you are always welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) anything that doesn’t work out for you. You might prefer one of our regular cut jackets, like the R1 CrossStrata. You're welcome to reach out to our Customer Service Team for specific measurements as well, so you can feel confident of the fit.
Looks good but sleeves are very tight. It's small in size. I was very excited to buy it, no but it's small in size.
Hi Pratishtha! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear about the disapointment with the fit.

Well made, but order a size up
I really appreciate the quality that goes into these jackets, but was disappointed to get it and have it not fit. Im 5 ft 7, 150 lbs and I am usually a pretty solid medium. The medium fit was snug enough to stretch it over my abdomen slightly and show fabric rolls. Im hoping the large fits better and isnt too loose.
Overpriced and underwhelming
The zipper is my largest issue with this sweater. No matter what you do, the zippers have a wavy appearance. The sweater is also slightly to large in the mid-section, yet the small is too tight. For the price, this sweater is not at al worth it. I will never purchase one again.
Hi Diana! Thank you for writing us a review on the Better Sweater Jacket. We're really sorry to hear about the disapointment with the jacket.

Quality Jackets with attention to detail
This jacket is really well made and feels substantial when you even just pick it up. The style lines are nice and the added zipper on the sleeve is a nice touch. The size small fit fairly snugly when zipped, so I gave the small to my daughter and ordered one size up for me so I can easily wear layers under it.
I got this item the zipper didnt work at all it got jammed and was hard to get up. They replaced it same issue with the second one. I requested a refund this time sent it back over a week ago and still no refund.

Every Day Wear
I ordered this because my old, purple one has gotten so much wear that it looks a little tired. My old one is an XS and it has always been snug (I am 110 pounds). The S fits well but the sleeves are so tight that Im not sure I can get a long sleeved T under it. I have thin arms so Im surprised. Length and quality is good.
Thanks for the review Barbara. We're sorry to hear that the sleeves are a little too tight. This fleece does have a slim fit, you can find this information if you check underneath the color options on the product page. The arm opening for the size small is 4.25" laying flat but if you size up to a medium it jumps to 4.375". If you'd like to exchange for a size up, please click [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Warm and cozy
I love this product! I like the zipper so I don't have to take it off over my head. I normally wear small in clothing, but the small in this style was too tight across the shoulders and short in the sleeves, so I exchanged it for a medium. I would buy several in different colors if I could afford it!

I thought Pantagonia jackets are superior quality. This is my first time purchasing one. I wear my Pantagonia jacket for work. I noticed pilling 3 rd day wearing this jacket. Im disappointed.

Favorite sweater - in many colors
I was introduced to this sweater in 2016, and have been buying them regularly (on sale, ideally) in my favorite colors since then.

Hi Maureen! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We really appreciate the feedback you shared regarding our sizing between the vest and jacket. We definitely want to provide better consistency between items so we'll share this with our design team.
Perfect alone or under coat
I bought this vest to wear under my coat as an extra layer while traveling. It was perfect for wearing alone on warmer days or on colder days when a coat was not enough. Warm and soft, exactly what I was looking for. Loved the zip pockets for being able to securely hold phone and hotel key.
Super Warm and Looks Great
What I love about this sweater is that its super warm and that it fits like a glove. I first became interested in purchasing this product when I saw a YouTuber, who reviews credit cards, wear one. Then saw numerous of people wear it. Im glad I got this sweater, and will be buying more, because I love the backstory to this brand.
I have this sweater in other colors. However, the black one I recently got and have barely worn (maybe 4 times) has started to peel. It looks horrible and cant wear it. Im very disappointed, not sure if its just the color.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review and we are very sorry to hear about the pilling issue you have encountered.

If you would like to prevent further pilling, we recommend washing your item 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 abraded.

It's best to lay it flat to dry rather than place it in the dryer where the fabric can easily get abraded. To remove pilling that has already occurred, a sweater shaver or sweater stone is an excellent tool and can help the garment look brand new again. Of course, if you're not pleased with the performance of the jacket you are welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
I am loving this jacket. I wear it every chance I get. I got it in Pelican which is a really lovely color and goes with everything. I originally ordered my usual size small and had to bump up to medium - I have broad shoulders and a long torso. Now that I have the medium it fits like a dream.
