I had been looking for a new pullover that would keep me warm in California winters but not make me overheat. This is just perfect! It's a bit oversized, but I prefer that over too snug; and it allows for layers if it gets really cold. There was a bit of pilling (always wash fleece before wearing), but it's gone way down over many wears a... Read Morend a couple of washes. And I got the Coast Highway Multi Big: Sumac Red, which I get compliments on all the time. It's really my favorite outerwear and, as it's gotten colder out, I rarely wear anything else.
Lovely until worn
I was super excited to purchase this for my husband, we live overseas but bought it online in the USA when we were there. The problem with the pullover is the lint that keeps coming off it! I have washed it at lest 8 times and it still sheds lint onto what ever my husband is wearing underneath. I would return this product if I didn't live ove... Read Morerseas.

Hi Ronny, thank you for submitting this review. We're sorry to hear this pullover has been shedding so much, even when you washed it according to instructions. Depending on where you are, you may be able to return it to a Patagonia-owned store. You can find store locations [here](https://www.patagonia.com/store-locator/).
I needed a new pullover that was lighter weight, so I wouldn't end up sweating standing still, but had trouble finding one that fit my long torso. So I wasn't sure this would work.

I'm a "big guy" (6'-6" and 330 lbs). Finding quality outdoor clothing is hard, but this pullover fits perfectly.

The pit and arm section runs very large on this fleece. I compared it to a few other small patagonia fleeces I have and the arm sections seem almost disproportional on this.

Synchilla Satisfaction! Happily surprised with differences between the men's vs women's Lightweight Synchilla Snap-T pullover!
I'm a petite woman between 5'0 - 5'1 height, 108-115 pounds (muscular, with muscular upper arms and shoulders, which does make men's cuts better fitting there), and I have bought the men's XXS in other Patagonia items in the past, and most recently in this Lightweight Synchilla Pullover. Obviously the Lightweight Pullover S... Read Morenap Synchilla is a more relaxed fit/style, whether in women's or men's, but I knew what to expect and am very happy with it! The men's Lightweight Synchilla has some real quality improvements compared to the women's (although both are the same price) : The men's collar is made of 2 layers of Synchilla fleece fabric and is slightly taller (by about the width of 1 - 1.5 of the top of collar piping) to better cover the neck and provide warmth, (whereas the women's collar is shorter, and only 1 layer of fabric, which isn't as warm and also looks cheap on the women's if it's a print bc you see the backside of printed fabric.) The collar on the men's version is functional, cozy, and 2 layers of Synchilla fleece, which helps it to keep it's shape. And the pocket is so much bigger!! I was assuming there'd be a bit larger pocket on the men's compared to women's, but I was surprised at how much difference in size! (I understand that many women may not want larger pockets on breast pocket area, but as a petite muscular woman, whose body more resembles a gymnast, I don't really have the problems other women may have with breast pocket(s). The men's XXS cuts seem to be shorter and fall higher up on hip/waist than XS women's in this Lightweight Pullover Synchilla and (from experience and past purchases) most vests, which is perfect for shorter women. That info won't be useful to most people, but just wanted to share that beta for fellow short muscular women.
Crazy shedding, not environmentally friendly
I bought two Synchillas: Borealis Green for me, and Mythic Pink for my partner. The fit was great, they were super cosy, but they shedded to such an insane degree we had no choice but to return them. I'm not sure if it was the relatively bright colours that made it more obvious or if they were faulty products, but everything in our house quick... Read Morely because covered in pink and green plastic fibers. We tried washing them, brushing them, etc., but nothing stopped the shedding. They were unusable - and given increased awareness of the environmental dangers of microplastics, it seems irresponsible to keep selling them given Patagonia's professed values.
Hi Rob! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear about badly the pullover was shedding. Sometimes a new fleece will shed a bit but after 1-2 washes it should stop. It doesn't sound like that was the case in the situation so we'd consider this a warranty issue. We definitely understand the concern especially when considering microplastics. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Depending on the use I would choose a size smaller if it is going to be for laying under a shell. Super comfy. I love it.
We appreciate your feedback and agree that sizing down in this "regular" fit Snap-T can work well depending on how you plan to use it, or you might go with a ["slim" fit fleece top](https://www.patagonia.com/shop/mens-fleece?prefn1=fit&prefv1=slim). Thanks for the review Robert!
I like the design, but this one seems a bit lighter than the other synchillas I have bought in the past.
Hi Akshar, we're so sorry to hear that the Lightweight Synchilla Snap-T Fleece Pullover isn't meeting your expectations. Please feel free to begin a [return or exchange](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) at your earliest convenience.
Lots of lint
After a few washes it still sheds like the first day.
We're truly sorry to hear the Men's Lightweight Synchilla Snap-T Fleece Pullover is shedding too much. We went ahead and reached out to you via email to offer some help with your return. We also passed your thoughts along to our Design Team. Thank you so much for your feedback.
Im pleased the snap- tee has not changed for many years. I have three of them and wear them almost every day. I wish you would bring the Baggies Jacket back. I liked the waist level casual jacket that was suitable for every day use, rather than a jacket designed for a specific activity.
*A one hour walk produced excessive pilling under the arms. I admire Patagonia's environmental commitment but may be nice to build products that are also consumer friendly. * Patagonia sizing has always been inconsistent. I have worn many fleeces in a medium but adjusted to a small. Will return this item.
Hi Doyle, we appreciate your feedback and apologize for the excessive pilling you experienced! Like all fleeces, the Lightweight Synchilla Snap-T Pullover has a tendency to pill. A sweater shaver or stone is an excellent tool to remove pilling. Regardless, your satisfaction is very important to us and we'd be happy to assist with your [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) if you haven't already.
This pullover fleece is the one I've had for 20 years, and the one I've dreamed of. Material is super durable (though not ember-proof), doesn't pill, stays soft, supple and warm. Design is just right, with double-thickness neck for both warmth and structure, cuffs that can push up or be down, length and dimensions of torso and sleeve... Read Mores are just a bit relaxed on me, which is what I was absolutely hoping for. I paid full MSRP, and I'm totally happy. And the blue/green color is rare and cheerful, without obnoxious.
love the color
I ordered a men's XS in a bright color as the colors that are available in womens are drab, muted and frankly very uninspiring. It is tight over the hips but I had really no choice if I wanted a nice fleece. Patagonia's drab womens clothing and shallow pockets in womens pants are disappointing. Not sure they want women as customers.
Hello Siv! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're sorry to hear about the disappointment with the selection of colors we offer in the women's version. We really value this feedback and we'll share it with our design crew.
The Snap-T was worth the money because of the comfort. Its easy to move in and thats nice, but I am not a huge fan of how it fits. It seems to run large and the sleeves are very long. I will definitely purchase more Patagonia, but probably not another one of these pieces.
Hi Byron, we're sorry to hear that the fit isn't quite right. We want you to be happy with everything you purchase from us, so please keep in mind that if you like you are welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it.
Bought a Large and X-large for colder occasions.
Both are nice. They are a little long going past waist. Not as nice as the one's I bought 20 years ago. Not as thick, not as durable. This color needs to come with Green accents. That's it.
Hello Lance! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear that the pullover doesn't feel as durable as ones you've had in the past. There have been some material changes over the years, but maintaining durability is always top of mind. They should still provide durability and comfort, but if you notice they're wearing out more quickly than expected you can always [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) them under warranty.
Warm and Versatile
I love the synch! It's very warm and comfortable. I really like the larger arm holes and it doesn't feel restricting at all. It's also pretty stretchy.

Great fit and warmth!
Everything about this item works for me. Warm and comfy with a great relaxed fit. I feel like Patagonia sizing has improved dramatically over the last few years. Keep it up!
We're glad to hear you're liking our "regular" fit Lightweight fleece Snap-T, Ben! Note that our [Synchilla Snap-T](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-synchilla-snap-t-fleece-pullover/25450.html) uses a slightly heavier weight fleece fabric and a true "relaxed" fit design. Thanks for your review!
Sheds Fleece Continually Under Light Use
I purchased and wore this pullover almost daily for approximately 6 months. When I first purchased it, the fleece shed a good bit as expected, and after three or four cycles through the wash, the shedding decreased, but did not stop. I recently returned this pullover to the store I bought it from because I noticed that the fleece had completely wor... Read Moren away in some spots, specifically where the seatbelt of my car came in contact with the pullover. I would have expected the material to be much more resilient than to shed down to the threads in a matter of 6 months. I do not recommend this item.
Hello Robert! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're incredibly sorry to hear that the shedding persisted so badly even after washing it. Some shedding on new fleece is expected, however what you described is something we'd consider a warranty issue. We're happy to hear that you returned it, but we're very sorry that you had this experience. We've passed this feedback along to our design crew.
This is my first Synchilla Snap T Fleece and I absolutely love it. I live in Northern CA and although we dont have true winters here this fleece is perfect for me. I wear it around the house when we dont want to run the heater, to walk the dog, run errands in, and just to chillax in. I have had it for a week, got it on a Monday and literally ha... Read Moreve worn it everyday! Its the first thing I put on when I get home. The size for me runs big. Like one to two sizes big. For reference, I wear a large in my Better Sweater and Nano Puff that both give me a little room to spare. With this fleece I got a large and its big still. I almost think I could wear a medium to give me a more fitted look. This isnt a complaint but more of a heads up for future buyers. Maybe not the most streamlined look for around the office. I am a elementary school teacher and this might be too casual for work, but for everything else, you cant go wrong. My only issue now is keeping my wife from borrowing it.
King Kong Sizing
Initially ordered in XXL and the thing was massive. Ordered the micro D snap T at same time and size and its fit was perfect. The lightweight snap T is way oversized even the XL replacement had oversized arms. Love Patagonia clothing and own quite a few different items. Never had such a hugely oversized product from them before. Would recommend fir... Read Moreing Omar the tent maker and resize the item to proper specifications, XXL=XXL. On a side note the exchange process was fantastic and very helpful. Also aside from the excess material in the arms I like the product and it will keep me warm.
Sheds like crazy
I got this fleece in the Cottage Isle color and its shedding a shocking amount of fibers on everything it touches. The small fibers have a reflective sheen so theyre highly visible. Ive tried washing and drying it several times as per the response on another review but nothing seems to help. The fibers cover my car seat/seatbelt, my pants/undershir... Read Moret, and everything else it comes in contact with. If it was a small amount of shedding I wouldnt mind it but this is on another level, I can see them floating in the air whenever I move around and they end up all over the room. Seems like a safety issue since the tiny plastic fibers could easily end up in my airways when theyre floating around like this, or all over my pets if they go near it. My old Synchilla has never had this issue, I cant remember ever seeing fibers shedding off of it in all the years Ive worn it. Did something change with the construction of the latest ones?
Not too thick but its warm !
I bought this for my husband. He usally wears size S or M. Id noticed this sweater fits loose, and it is a loose fit definately. If you want to wear is as tight fit youd better go down one size. Overallt he likes it pretty much ! Like the color and design. (We got the green color)
Clean look with freedom of movement
There's not a lot new to say about this classic fleece, but something I appreciate is that it's nice and loose without looking sloppy. I can wear it with my slimmest jeans and not look like a lollipop! I can even layer a hoodie under there! Also, I usually don't like tops with elastic waistbands because I have a long torso and they r... Read Moreide up--but this one doesn't do that! The Synchilla is one of those articles of clothing that you can put on and forget that you're wearing it.
Like a baby blanket
My go to for extremely cold days. I normally would buy a large but this item runs a full size bigger. Dont worry about sleeve length as these seem extra generous there as well. This is warmer than the Synchilla jackets due to the elastic material in the cuffs and waist which seems to trap warm air
Super warm, some piling
Beautiful pattern and color, fits slightly oversize in a good way (size up). Super warm and comfortable! More than expected piling on one side, might bring it to a store sometime.
Hello Frank! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We truly appreciate this feedback and we're sorry to hear about the pilling you've noticed on one side of the fleece. To prevent pilling we'd recommend washing the fleece in warm water on a gentle cycle and laying it flat to dry. To remove pilling that has already occurred we'd suggest trying a sweater stone. Also, if the problem gets worse you can always [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) under warranty.
Awesome Pattern and Colors but...
This is the third Synchilla I've acquired over the years. I absolutely love the color combination and pattern. However, after multiple washings it still sheds and leaves lint all over the place. Hopefully it will cease at some point. But, when I invest in a piece from Patagonia I expect a certain level of quality.
Hey Anthony, thanks for taking the time to write your thoughts. Unfortunately, the shedding is a common issue when you first get your new Synchilla, as it is the nature of the fabric, but over time it will subside with washing/drying. Make sure you're washing on warm followed by a low tumble dry. Fabric shavers and Guppy Bags can help trap and collect some of this excess fabric. With that said, we have passed your feedback to our Design Team.
Patagonia Lightweight Synchilla Fleece Pullover
I've been buying these Synchilla Fleece Pullovers since the early 1980s. They are a classic and a fundamental item I wear and carry whether I am hiking, mountain biking or snowshoeing.

Basic yet perfect
Summary of pros: really cozy, looks amazing (Ive already gotten compliments from several people), is built well (with one minor exception I will list later), and is versatile enough to have more than one use case. Summary of cons: not feature rich, only has one small chest pocket (no hand warmers), seems to shed more micro fabrics than I expected ... Read More(although not enough to be a issue as of now). Things to note: the fit is baggie and this is not a performance piece. Still quite warm despite the light weight name. Cuffs and hem don't block out wind very well but are more comfortable than more restrictive models. What I use mine for: casual wear (its nice to have inside or by the fire in the late fall/winter), hiking, and resort skiing. I wouldnt recommend it for very aerobic activities. Final thoughts: if you want a nice and long lasting pull over and don't mind the lack of features and baggie fit nothing else that I've found beats this product. If you're on the fence about getting it Id pull the trigger. Chances are you wont be disappointed.
Love the Style
The Synchilla's tend to always give a more casual and relax look, which contrasts the more "professional" look of the Better Sweaters.

Sheds a TON, but warm and cozy
Warm and cozy, but it sheds A LOT. I'm still finding fibers all over my other clothes in the wash after a couple cycles, even with a GuppyBag. And the fibers get all over whatever I wear underneath. I'm a huge fan of Patagonia, but this is one thing I've gotten from them that I'm less than fully stoked on.

I have worn, and worn out, several over the past 15 or so years. I have used at least 200 days each.

They also don't like angle grinders, welding spatter, or red hot exhausts. I would have small imperfections on me, after that abuse!

A job well done.
Very nice product
With these mid-90's temps I haven't had a chance to wear this. I tried it on when it arrived and it fits fine.
