Whether one is trying to cover their belly button or stay warm in variety of frigid environments, this big synchi will get the job done. Often people will say what is that and I say is my synchi, I dont go anywhere without one.

Pile seems thin
It's been years since I've purchased a new synchilla snap-T. The density of the fleece is much thinner than my well worn and washed one from maybe 7 years ago. Wife said the same. Now feels more like a thin micro-D than the nice thick synchilla.
Hey Mike, thank you for the feedback. We're sorry to hear that this pullover felt different to you from past iterations. We do make a classic Synchilla and a lightweight version, this is the lightweight so we're thinking that could be part of the issue here. We want you to feel happy with your purchase. If this fleece isn't working out for you, feel free to browse our other options [here](https://www.patagonia.com/shop/mens/fleece).
This pullover is brutal. It sheds tons of little beige fibers all over anything and everything it touches. It might as well be made of glitter. I own 5-6 synchillas in varying Color-ways and Ive never had this issue with any of them. Its almost completely unwearable because once you put in on you're covered in fibers. Ive washed/dried it over ... Read More10 times and it still hasnt gotten any better. Ive tried lint-rolling it endlessly in hopes theres a limit to the shedding, but it never gets better. Buy a different color way, the oatmeal and navy is an actual nightmare. (Never thought Id be so dramatic over a pullover but here we are lol)
Hello Adam, thank you for your review. We're so incredibly sorry about the shedding you've been experiencing. It definitely sounds like you have defective product, so we've emailed you to set you up with a warranty evaluation.

I love this, its so comfy, looks great and is also practical for like hiking and outdoor stuff. I have one critique though, maybe this will stop as I wash it more, but it sheds everywhere!!!!

Overall I love this thing though!!!
Absolutely love the color and its extremely comfortable but its shedding like crazy. Its all over everything.

Shed like crazy
I love everything else but the quality of this sweater. The color looks nice and it fits me well. But it has one fatal flaw, shedding. It sheds all over the places, safety belt, backpack, outwear, chair. My girlfriend even told me she noticed my allergy was getting worse if I put on this sweater. I followed some comments to wash it for a couple of ... Read Moretimes, but it still sheds.

Sheds/flakes a ton, but great fit
I read that the Winter 2023 edition wasnt shedding as much, but my sweater was shedding like nuts for a week. But it looks amazing!
Thank you for the review, David. We're sorry to hear that you've run into some shedding issues. The shedding mentioned in previous review comments was for a specific colorway in a past season. We're very sorry to hear that you're still experiencing this with the newest release. We've emailed you to gather more information and report the issue to our quality control team. Thank you for bringing this to our attention!
Sheds like a dog in summer
Loses fleece thickness almost immediately. I havent even washed it yet because I fear it will lose a bunch of fleece and become paper thin. Love the yellow color of the fall 22 collection but there is definitely a quality issue with this fleece.
We're sorry to hear of the excessive shedding on your new fleece, Stephen. Please reach out to our [customer service team](https://help.patagonia.com/s/?_gl=1*gfb0hk*_ga*MTE3MzgxOTU4OS4xNjQ3NTMxMTc0*_ga_1SYPSJZYJ5*MTY3NzcwNzU4OS41OTguMS4xNjc3NzA5Mjc0LjAuMC4w) and we'd be happy to set you up with a warranty evaluation.
Oatmeal Heather shed like a sick animal
I was gifted the oatmeal Heather version for Christmas and its simply unbearable. I wore it out of the package and it shed an unbeatable amount on ever surface of my home. I wore it in my car and the seatbelt straps were absolutely ruined and it took me an hour to de lint everything. I washed this thing easily 12 times, delicate cycle, regular cyc... Read Morele, and even heavy duty. It WONT STOP SHEDDING. It was a gift so I cant complain but I simply cant and dont wear it. Maybe its just that color in particular but the hype was lost on me
Hey Brendan, thanks for the review. We're so sorry to hear about your experience with this fleece. We double checked and have confirmed that this is a known quality control issue with this specific colorway for Fall '22. Luckily, the issue has since been resolved for Spring '23. We've emailed you to gather more information, thank you for bringing this to our attention!
Absolutely loving the new prints, BUT
Would really, really love a zip jacket made available in the new retro-style prints you are doing seasonally with the Synchilla snap pullovers! I really don't care for pullover style outerwear, but would buy every new print in a zipper jacket without a doubt! They're so soft & durable, and the prints are awesome
I have one that I have owned for more than 10 years and it is still in pristine condition. My wife has one that's more than 20 years old and likewise is in perfect condition. FWIW: Plenty of people gripe about lint when new; so just toss yours into the washing machine before your first wear. Never, NEVER place this garment into the dryer! No n... Read Moreeed to, they dry in less than 2 hours max. My only advice is choose your color carefully, because you're going to have that color for a long, LONG time! I'm about to grab the Spring Salvia Green colorway.
Warm and Cozy
Exceptionally cozy fleece that is much warmer than I expected it to be. This fleece doesn't pack down very tight, so don't treat it like a fleece for backpacking. Instead, treat it as a solid casual wear for excellent warmth and comfort. Build is solid, I know this will last me for years to come.
Soft & Warm
Got this as a gift for my partner. They put it on immediately and only took it off to sleep for the next week. Soft, very warm, and looks great too! They've used it for working from home, going on cold walks under a jacket, and stepping outside. I hope Patagonia continues to make colorful and playful patterns for adults of all genders like...

I need better colors :(
Patagonia used to have such cute designs not long ago. What happened? Everything has navy :( give me cuter designs please!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. Please rest assured that we will be passing along this feedback to our Product Design Team so they are aware of the want for different colors and designs.
I bought 2 of these
I bought 2 of these same LARGE styles last year. They were perfect. This year they had a black available which I ordered a LARGE. It fit differently, too tight. It was a smaller fit. So I ordered a XL but it fit too long. Had to get it altered for an extra $40
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review, Steve. We also want to apologize for the issues you encountered with our sizing. Please note, we will be passing this feedback along to our Product Design Team so they can look into possible fixes to the fit of this product in future seasons.
Super Comfy and Fun
I had a giftcard to get something at Patagonia and decided to spend it on the Synchilla, and I couldn't be more happy. It's an incredibly warm and comfortable fleece that I can see myself wearing in any situation. It works as a fun casual piece, a layer in the cold, and something cozy to snuggle in. I was slightly worried about the sizing... Read More, but at 6' the medium fit perfectly. Not to small, and not too large either. This was my first Patagonia buy, and I'm very satisfied-- would recommend.
Best Fleece Ever
I had never worn one before this year, and when I saw the new colors I had to buy one. After using the fit finder, I purchased a size M and it fits great. This immediately became one of the most comfortable, warm and stylish pieces of clothing I own. I would only suggest to try and limit how much you wash them, because they do begin to pill, as any...

Warm and comfy and water repellent.
I got this fleeze to wear under a drysuit for boating in super cold water, but also keep me warm in the cold Michigan lake breezes. So far i have worn it for about a month. I got it for the purpose of wearing in a drysuit as well as looking cool for other uses. During one trial swim that lasted about an hour and included aggressive swimming, i had ... Read Morea little water penetrate from the neck seal on the drysuit. The water beaded right off the synchilla and ended soaking into my undergarmet which was polyester and spandex, so it was pretty awesome, I took off the drysuit at the end of the swim and walked back to the car which was about a mile and a half away warm and dry as can be. I then toke it out as a top layer sailing in the Lake Michigan October lake breezes in the high 40's and it worked well however did get alittle cold after about three hours out. After that i started layering up and have been really successful. I had planned to layer up so I also got a size up to layer underneath to really stay warm. I use a grid fleeze as my underlayer and a sports shirt under that. Two days ago i went out with the synchilla top and bottom with the layers mention including the drysuit on a late night sail and i was running toasty warm and comfy while everyone else was freezing with layer upon layer on including their foul weather gear. Temp was in low 40's and maybe gust up to 20 knots. It was awesome to be so comfy and happy to spend the extra dough on high quality clothing! Things i really like, Lack of zippers, which helps me protect the drysuit from zipper tears and cuts. Nice uniformity of material which feels great in a drysuit and good in general. The buttons for the neck closure feel good against my body, they dont become pressure points even when compressed against the chest. The buttons on the neck and bands around the cuffs do a great job of keeping the pullover in the right position on the wrist and around the neck to prevent gust of air to burst in and get me cold or to move on me while in the drysuit. The price seems great for the quality. Im super please which is why i had to write a review. I like it more than the regular synchilla pullover for the reasons above as well as the regular synchilla pullover lets in air unless all zipped up and even then i still feel cold spots around the zipper closures. So this pullover is the way to go. :)
Sold Fleece Jacket
Just another great fleece from the king of fleeces, Patagonia. However, and I absolutely could be wrong, the cut of this jacket is different from 4 or so years ago. IMO, this jacket runs kinda small. But Iits still the best on the market. I had to take a star away because man, these are horrible, horrible colors.
The wife got one right after me!
I love this lightweight Synchilla. Ive only used it to chill around home and run errands. But even being lightweight (more of a mid weight to be honest) it doesnt seem like it would be good for high endurance activities. I run hot anyway so Id be good with just a long sleeve wool shirt and a wind breaker to start off with in low 60 degree weather. ... Read MoreAnyways super comfy and I have yet to feel the original Synchilla which is heavier and warmer but Ill see if I need it as we get closer to winter but I doubt it. Im happy with what I got and so is my wife.
Soft, warm, fits great, and pilling
Haven't had it a year yet, wore it for one winter/spring season. Only washed maybe 3-4 times, always in cold water, and air dried. Today, catching the light just so, I can see the forearms/cuffs, front by the hem and sides are pilling. What??? I asked Patagonia about that, and they said use a pumice stone (which seems wrong for such a new garm... Read Moreent, or really for any garment). Is pilling what happens when the material is recycled? They never used to do that. It's disappointing. I love the feel and warmth, and the pilling makes it look grubby and cheap. Not quite the look I'm after...
Hey Charlie, thank you for the review. We're sorry to hear that your fleece is pilling. The main culprit for pilling is friction over time. It could happen when an item is worn with a backpack, or when your seatbelt hits and rubs the same spot; but usually it takes time and wear for that to happen. It sounds like you might potentially have a warranty issue on your hands, and we'd be happy to evaluate it for either a refund or merchandise credit.
