True To Size

Comfy fit

This sweater was very true to size and form fitting! If you want more room, then I would recommend sizing up. The length is a bit long, but I have a small frame. The color matches everything I wear! The sweater allows for a light long sleeve underneath and you can layer a jacket on top. It proves to keep me warm in California winter.

Fits well

I own four of these fleece pullovers because the fit is great and the fabric keeps me warm.

December 22, 2020

Well fitting and warm.

I love it. Long enough sleeves with a toasty inside make it a joy to wear.

December 22, 2020

Comfortable and fashionable for a 15 year old girl

This item is an excellent alternative to the usual hoodie my 15 year old daughter wears. It looks nice and it is comfortable.

December 22, 2020

Very warm and comfortable

This is by far my favorite sweater. It is warm and comfortable. It is very fitted, which gives it a nicer look than a bulky sweater or sweatshirt.

December 20, 2020

Love everything about..

Whats not to love with a Better Sweater?? I own 1/4 zip and full zip and want them in every color! So warm. I live in them all winter.

December 19, 2020

One of my top three favorite articles of clothing

Absolutely love this. This one is my third and purchased simply for color and sale price. These are incredibly warm without being bulky. Looks stylish and is very functional. I wear it to work and also use them frequently for hiking. I recommend it to all my friends!

December 19, 2020

Warm

With an under armor mock turtleneck underneath, it keeps me warm all day long.

December 19, 2020

Great Quality

Great fit and quality product for the price. Very comfortable!

December 18, 2020

Perfectly causal

Perfect for hanging out on a fall day

December 18, 2020

Comfy and warm

Nicely made. Sleeves are long enough for taller individuals. Very comfortable and cozy to wear.

December 17, 2020

Very comfortable and warm

I love the better sweater. I have 3 of them. They run a bit snug so I size up because I prefer a looser fit. They are pretty warm and super comfortable. I often wear them around the house on cold days and wear them for outdoor walks.

December 17, 2020

Cozy and warm

Very comfy! An alternative to my other fleece, this one is a bit heavier. I went for a more relaxed fit but probably could have fit in an M if I preferred tight clothes (57, 165 athletic build, 36B). Ive only washed it once so its a little stiff, but I think it just needs to be worn in more.

December 16, 2020

Worth the cost, snug, warm, would buy again

Im an avid runner but because I swear so much I dont want to ruin it! Its a snug fit large. Its true to size just lean. Do not assume the fit is loose. You cant really wear more than one layer under it without overheating. I got this for around $50. The mens wasnt on sale like the womens and because it was so well made, Im purchasing the mens for o... Read Morever 100. Its a lovely grey.

December 15, 2020

love it

Got this for my sister. She loves it and enjoys wearing it wherever she goes :)

December 14, 2020

Super warm

I just love everything about this sweater Color,quality,design and fit. Im a petite person and size S fits me perfect. Not to tight nor loose just enough room to move around. I will definitely recommend this one to anyone. Price wise Ill say its a little too high but again this is a good investment in a really good quality item.

December 13, 2020

Great Christmas Gift

Pullover is a Christmas gift for my daughter. She requested it, I bought it, Patagonia shipped it & it arrived quickly compared to other companies Ive ordered from this Christmas season. Looks & feels cozy & warm, but I'll have to check with my daughter in January!

December 11, 2020

Warm and soft and beautiful

Im in love with this sweater! Its fits perfect and is so warm and soft.

December 10, 2020

What's Not to Love

I have a size small in a different color which is nice for layering underneath though I really like this x-small for a more fitted look. I'm 5' at 115lbs. This fleece is thick, warm, soft, sturdy, and just feels great to wear.

December 10, 2020

Excellent sweater

Best gear for winter spring and fall. I have had 4 of these over time best purchase ever versatile for all seasons

December 9, 2020

Soft and cozy

Incredibly soft and cozy. Perfect for laying with others!

December 9, 2020

Love this sweater. I could wear it everyday in the winter.

Loving this sweater.

December 8, 2020

Nice:)

I normally wear a medium 10-12 but it was listed as slim fit so I ordered a large. Perfect . Love the price (49.00) otherwise would be hesitant to order .

December 8, 2020

Great fit

My daughter loves the fit and feel of this great sweater

December 7, 2020

Super warm and comfortable

Worn alone in 30-degree weather (no wind) and didn't once feel cold ️

December 6, 2020

Super warm!

Very true to size and not bulky! Love it!

December 6, 2020

Great quality, hard to find right size

Definitely impressed with the quality of this sweater as it is very well-made. It is fairly thick and tightly woven so it keeps you warm on cold days. The zippers worked well and I liked the piping around the bottom and sleeves. I ordered a medium (which is my usual size) but it was a tight fit and way too snug to wear a t-shirt underneath. I retur... Read Morened it for a large which I then found to be too big. Seems I just couldn't find the perfect fit.

December 6, 2020

Stylish and warm

I love the navy 1/4 zip sweater, but am glad I ordered the medium as sometimes I get a small. Fits perfectly and I love the navy color.

December 5, 2020

Very cozy and warm!

I am so pleased with this jacket. I had been eyeing it for a while and when it went on sale I snagged one. I originally bought a small based off reviews, but it ended up being too big so I got an xs and it is perfect. I am 5 foot 2 and weigh 96 pounds for reference.

December 5, 2020

A classic that everyone needs!

This is a great 1/4 zip for everyday wear and traveling. I have a long torso and this fleece fits perfectly.

December 5, 2020

Snug but comfortable

This pull over has a snug but has a comfortable fit. I am normally a medium but I had to size up for this item.

December 5, 2020

comfy

Size is perfect! Cozy, well-made and attractive!

December 4, 2020

comfy and cozy

I've worn this at least 3-4 times per week since I got it. It's cozy but not sweaty. I wash it on delicate cold and lay flat to dry and so far it doesn't show any signs of pilling. It's my new favorite sweatshirt!

December 4, 2020

Just plain awesome

Bought it for my wife and we both loved it the moment she tried it on. Soft to the touch, warm and cozy garment with a firm structure, a true testament to the quality of Patagonia products. She wants a couple of the other colors as well... and I cant wait to see them.

December 4, 2020

So comfy

I got a bigger size because I can layer and also I work out so my shoulders are a bit broader. I had a small and it was ok but this fits way better. Love the 1/4 zip with my jeans or yoga pants, it's super comfy, warm and just looks awesome!

December 4, 2020

Perfect sweater

I always thought this sweater was a little overrated, seeing it everywhere. Im glad I gave it a chance, because its really the perfect sweater! Great for layering, though perfectly warm on its own. Will be the perfect addition to my wardrobe whether Im camping, snowboarding, or just working - its definitely more professional looking than my other s... Read Moreweatshirts!

December 3, 2020

Warm and comfortable

I'm 5'8 and I wear small size, but I had to get a M to fit me. It is also kind of short. However, it is warm and of good quality.

December 3, 2020

Very Warm and Comfortable

Amazing fit and feeling to be in the sweater. I wish they had more deals, but the quality makes it last for a long time and well worth the amount.

December 3, 2020

Perfect Fit

Perfect fit and super cute!

December 3, 2020

Love!

I'm usually a medium in Patagonia and was hesitant to size up (based on reviews) but I'm so glad I did! I'm pretty busty (5'7", 32DDD. 145lbs) and the large fits me perfectly in the chest and still has a nice lean look. The way the shoulders are sewn (no seam straight across the shoulder) keeps it from being bulky in the sh... Read Moreoulders, even when sizing up. The sleeves are long on me in the large, but I don't mind. Much rather have it fit everywhere else with slightly long sleeves than tight through the chest/body. Very versatile, comfortable and warm. Love it!

December 3, 2020

Warm & Cozy

Love the pull over, it does run slim as described. Great quality and keeps me very warm!

December 3, 2020

Warm and versatile

As others have noted, this sweater does run a bit small. I'm 5'6", 130lb and typically wear a Small but got a Medium after reading other reviews. The M fits perfectly, so if you'd like more room for layers you may want to go up a size or two. The sweater itself is really comfortable, warm and can be worn for outdoor activities, ...

Fabulous gift!!!

This quarter zip fleece is a gift for my daughter-in-law. I know she will love it. She has been looking at this for some time. She has a small frame and she will look adorable in it. She will be so surprised. Thank you Patagonia, it's a perfect gift.

December 3, 2020

Warm

A smart looking casual sweater.

December 2, 2020

Great value

Love this jacket I found it ran a little small so I had to return the small for a medium. Great material, well made and I find it is a great value

December 2, 2020

Great Sweater

I purchased the xs sweater. It fits alright, just feels a tad snug. Id go up in size if youre wanting something a little roomier.

December 2, 2020

Perfect for 40s temp

The Better Sweater line is great to wear by itself on days that are in the 40 degree range and its perfect. Only thing I would change is the length, wish it was 2 inches longer because they do shrink when washed.

December 2, 2020

Super warm and cozy.

I usually wear women's size Large (jacket&hoodie) but I have ordered XL just because I have seen some review says "It's a bit tight around chest & arms". However, I should have ordered large size! haha (I have ordered men's medium size here and it just fits!) XL is just wide around my waist and the sleeves are longe... Read Morer. Overall this item is super warm and cozy. I can still wear it if I put on more layers inside :)

December 2, 2020

Super Warm

This product really worked for me. I usually wear on outings, walks, hiking, and when its just cold.

December 2, 2020

In Love

Id always wanted a Patagonia fleece but never bought one because they seemed overpriced. This year I finally broke down and bought one, and it was life changing! It was worth every penny. I even bought it in two other colors. No other sweater compares. Theyre super warm and fashionable without being bulky and over the top. I wear them everywhere. I...

Christmas gift

This is a Christmas present so no current information as of now

December 1, 2020

Very cozy!

I have been eyeing this quarter zip for a while and was excited to see it go on sale, so I finally snagged one. I originally ordered a small based on comments, but it ended up being roomier than I had wanted so I got an XS instead and its perfect. Im 5 foot 2 inches /96lbs for reference. Already have work it a few times and am loving it!

November 30, 2020

Warm, handy sleeve pocket, nice color

Sturdy yet soft. Hem is not stretchy so it feels tight, but going up a size would = too-long sleeves and too-wide shoulders. Would give 5 stars for a flexible hem. :-)

November 30, 2020

Grandma loved it

My grandma always gets cold and sometimes struggles to find fashionable clothing that fits well (she's slim but has a larger chest, so it's hard to find well fitting clothing). She wears this all the time and loves the mixture of fit and style!

November 30, 2020

Warm and comfy

Perfect sweater for layering. Not too thick not thin. Super warm and comfy.

November 30, 2020

Super comfortable

Fits perfectly and kept warm. Love it!

November 30, 2020

Great feel and warmth

Originally ordered a medium, the fit was good but I prefer room for layering during the winter months. Exchanged for a large, the process was very easy, had new item in days, customer service was great!

November 29, 2020

Very nice!

Love this sweatshirt, runs small for an athletic build with medium boob-age.

November 29, 2020

Comfy & cute!

So cute, warm and comfy! Perfect for chilly Midwestern days!

November 29, 2020

Too stiff for me

I am 5'2, 125lbs and a 34b. I ordered my usual size which is small. As soon as I tried this on, it felt stiff on me and I did not feel comfortable moving around in it. I guess it's suppose to be a tight fit, but the top part was too tight for me. I also did not like that it did not have pockets.

November 29, 2020

Lightweight

Looks great and is lightweight but short and small

November 29, 2020

Nice Fleece

This is my 2nd better sweater. Last one I found it to be snug in upper arm. It fit and wasnt tight anywhere else.This time I ordered small and it fits fine. Could wear cuddledud or something under. I am 52 96# for reference. I dont like tight clothing. This looks dressier than plain fleece, which I wear all the time.

November 29, 2020

Quality, staple sweater

Super cozy, I would wear it everyday in the winter if I could.

November 28, 2020

very nice & warm

Very comfortable & warm.

November 27, 2020

Perfect for everyday

This item fit perfectly and is super soft. You can wear it anywhere and itll surely keep you warm. Definitely recommend

November 26, 2020

Comfortable and functional

This is definitely one of my favorite jackets. Its very comfortable. It is fitted so I would size up if you want something looser. Perfect for everyday wear and for hiking.

November 26, 2020

Great quality, super warm

Great fit, true to size. Very warm! As a nurse out in the field it provides great warmth without the bulk & is a must on cold days!

November 26, 2020

Definitely Warm

This is my first Patagonia purchase, this is definitely a warm piece and it washed up well. Ive only worn it once, but its going to be a great addition to my wardrobe.

November 25, 2020

Warm and comfy

Really like this and wear it frequently. My only complaint is that it doesnt have pockets. I wear it on conference calls and walks. The pockets would come in handy when Im getting warmed up for the walks. I am a medium of a medium is 10-12. I sized up bc this is slim fit and am pretty curvy. The large is perfect.

November 25, 2020

Great Sweater!

These sweaters are great. I own 3. Would rather they be boxy fitting rather than fitted.

November 24, 2020

Nice 1/4 zip

I really like the 1/4 zip better sweater because its a nice looking causal piece. It looks great for everyday and very comfortable and warm for cold weather. Flattering slim fit.

November 24, 2020

Not warm

Not as warm as stated, and fits super tight. The sleeves are too long for my arms, but the large is too tight.

November 24, 2020

I could live in this !

After years of loving and wanting to own a Patagonia jacket, specifically the Better Sweaters, I finally bought a 1/4 zip and full zip style when I saw them on sale. The quality and warmth these jackets provide is incomparable. I am 5'5, around 118 lbs., normally wear XS/S and went with size small. Technically could've worn XS if I wanted... Read More an even slimmer fit, but went with S so that I can comfortably layer underneath and on top as needed (that's the beauty of these thin, lightweight Better Sweaters!). Maybe my only complaint is that after about a year of owning this, I noticed a bit of minor pilling on the sleeves. I'm not sure if it's just because I wear it so often or because of friction with other clothing. Either way, I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a very warm, yet lightweight layer that is versatile with casual outfits especially if you catch these on sale!

November 23, 2020

Warm, lose fit and came a little smelly

I love the sweater. I ended up going a size up compared to normal because I have longer arms. Happy I did because the M has perfect sleeve length, little looser than Id like for a fit but at least my arms are covered . I love how soft the inside is and the thickness is nice for these in between fall/winter temps we are getting in Colorado. It did a...

I purchased this sweater as a gift. Unfortunately, I ordered the wrong size. However, the representative whom I spoke to made the exchange easy and seamless. She arranged the exchange with much efficiency. Great Job!

November 23, 2020

Quality and would order again

The it is just a tad big, but the quality for the price is great. Love the gray as it feels classic.

November 22, 2020

Toasty warm!

Sleeves are long enough for me. The finish on the outside has almost a dressy look and the inside is soft and cozy. The zipper can be zipped to the top without a chin problem.

November 22, 2020

Warm

Its soft and warm while being light weight! My only complaint would be that I wish it were less boxy. It doesnt go in at the waist very much and I find that the sweater is long even for someone like me who has a long torso.

November 22, 2020

Super warm

Love this sweater, I wore it yesterday (it was 55 degrees) and wore nothing but a sports bra under it, and was extra cozy all day. The only downside is it run a bit small so I would recommend ordering a size up.

November 22, 2020

Runs small but very flattering

This quarter zip is very warm and the cut is very flattering. It runs small, I have to size up since usually you wear a layer underneath and I like a slightly roomier fit anyway. Would recommend to friends

November 22, 2020

Runs small

As a petite woman, I figured a size medium would work for me but it was super tight on me due to the narrow shoulder and chest. It sucks because I ordered 2, thinking it was such a great deal for a product raved about by everyone. I didnt want to deal with return shipping, so I just went ahead and ordered a large. Large fits me better but the sleev... Read Morees are super long on me. I think the material is very warm and durable, but its honestly not comfortable, even with the larger size because it hardly stretches, so you may want to note this before buying.

Warm

Slightly smaller than I expected but really like it over all.

November 22, 2020

Looks and feels great!

Super comfy, warm, and looks great! I love the pocket on the arm, its large enough to fit my iPhone pro and doesnt look or feel bulky. Ordered the small which I usually wear but this felt too small. Patagonia customer service was amazing and I was able to return it for free and get a bigger size. Definitely recommend!

November 22, 2020

Comfy and looks good

Bought this on sale, super warm and comfy. Small fit me well and Im quite skinny. Its also pretty light and the collar is not flimsy like some other sweaters I have bought. Overall, very pleased!

November 22, 2020

Super nice and warm

My very first Patagonia sweater and I love it! Very comfortable to wear and keeps me warm. And the other best part is I got it on sale. I cannot wait to purchase more. Shipping was very fast!

November 21, 2020

Quarter Zip

I feel like this fits true to size, except in the shoulders. I was hoping it would be more loose but instead its tighter fit on the back of my shoulders. Sized up from a small, I would purchase a large in the future for a more loose fit to wear with leggings

November 21, 2020

Perfect fleece

Very comfortable and warm

November 21, 2020

My go to

This pullover is my go to. Super warm for my coastal wet climate, and layers well.

November 20, 2020

Great Sweater

The material is great and very warm. I was comfortable in this sweater in about 56degrees and a t shirt underneath. There is no stretch which is why I purchased an XL knowing it would give. So if your in between sizes I would say go up, especially if you plan on layering.

November 20, 2020

Super warm

Super warm sweater keeps me warm and great material. Although runs small so I would size up! But love my sweaters!

November 20, 2020

Super cozy

Everything about this sweater is perfect , I can wear it with jeans or leggings and it even looks cute over my scrubs , I love it !

November 20, 2020

Cozy

This is the perfect top to throw on when you want to be cozy and warm! My home office is in the basement and it can be chilly. This is perfect to keep me warm but also look work appropriate for casual Fridays!

November 19, 2020

Not what i expected

So I took a chance based on the reviews and sizes up for a looser fit and its still snug also not a fan of the material...next time i will stick to an in store purchase for this brand.

November 19, 2020

Very warm

I got this to wear to work over my scrubs and I ordered my usual size of small. It did feel a little too tight as the fabric doesnt have a lot of stretch in it so next time I would have personally gone a size bigger so its easier to slip on and off but its a fitted look and I do like it and its very warm on

November 19, 2020

Decent look!!

Its really warm!! For that price the quality is really good.

November 19, 2020

Comfortable and warm

I love this quarter-zip top. It goes well with everything and keeps me warm. My only wish is that it had pockets because I like to keep my hands in them; however, everything else about this top is so great that I can forgo the pockets!

November 19, 2020

Classic

I love the look and fit of this fleece. It is warm and roomy enough to layer underneath.

The material is amazingly thick and keeps me so warm. Honestly it may seem really expensive, but the quality is definitely worth. Youre paying for the quality in this case. 10/10

November 18, 2020

Flattering fit and warm

I am 55 weight 137 and small build in shoulders. Im glad I ordered a large as I didnt want this to fit tight. It is comfortable enough to wear a t-shirt under or without a shirt. Nice and warm.

Runs small

Runs small. Order 1-2 sizes up unless you like an extremely snug fit. No stretch or give.

Super warm and super comfy

I have been a Patagonia customer for over 40 years. I have observed their constant dedication to grow the company in a mindfulness of the earth and future generations.

Super warm, love the look, fits small

I am normally between a medium and large depending on fit. The large fits but not a lot of extra room. The arms are good the body is really fitted. I would size up. I do love throwing this on for outside activities or errands. It is very warm !!

Love the fit, but not much stretch

I love how this fits, it doesnt feel boxy and sloppy. However it does not have much stretch so it can be a little hard to get off and on. It works for me, but may recommend going up a size for this reason. Overall Im really happy with it.

Wonderfully Comfortable & Warm

Reading reviews, I sized up as it is a slim fit and I wanted to be able to layer. Love the fit, color and wear of of it! Length is great - as I have a long torso. Really wish I'd had ordered 2.

November 17, 2020

Warm but runs small

It is surely soft and warm but tight with sleeves extra long. High neck puts pressure on my throat which made me uncomfortable. Odd fitting.

November 17, 2020

Warm and fashionable

I love the look and feel of this sweater! It keeps me warm but not over heated, and it looks good for casual wear and at the office (where my office tends to get chilly). I look forward to wearing this for many years to come!

Super warm

Super warm and looks adorable. True to size, but not much stretch, so its harder to get on than most pullovers. May be easier sizing up. Im 5 ft 8, 125 lbs and I got a small, for reference.

Good

Dont want to take it off

Way too small

Slim fit way too small. I always take extra small or small.

November 16, 2020

Warm and comfy

I love this sweater. I'm 5'2, 115 lbs and usually wear a small. This is a bit snug as I like to wear a shirt underneath. Even with a very thin tank top on, I felt like the sleeves could provide a bit more room. But overall, it's comfy, great to throw on when you need to run for an errand.

Very Nice but a bit small

Very nice pullover. But it does run a bit small, although the sleeves were a good length which is usually not true.

Runs Small

Pretty comfy material, but watch out as it is rather short. Sleaves are a good length. Need to buy another size up because the medium didn't fit, unfortunately.

I like this sweater a lot I just which it had more give. Theres no stretch to it so its not very easy to pull on or off without a struggle.

November 15, 2020

Super Warm, Fast delivery!

Product arrived really quickly, fantastic quality and really warm.

November 15, 2020

Very warm but runs small

I normally wear a size medium or a large. I bought a large and it is pretty tight on me.

November 15, 2020

Super warm & stylish

Love it. My first Patagonia and loving it along with my sister since we both ordered.

November 15, 2020

Is super comfortable and warm !!!

I love it , is worth it !!!!

November 15, 2020

Soft

The material is very soft and warm.

November 15, 2020

Warm and cozy

I love this sweater. It is really warm and comfy. I would say it runs true to size. I am 55 and 140 and ordered a medium. If you want to wear heavy layers underneath size up.

November 15, 2020

Favorite Pullover

I love this Better sweater. The material is warm and breathable. It washes well and the fit is great. Highly recommend.

November 15, 2020

Warm, well-made and well proportioned.

This pullover sweater is a gem. I'm 5'10" and athletic/thin and bought a medium. It fits great. Thick and warm, but not bulky, tailored fit, not boxy, sufficiently long, and with great attention to details - zipper pocket on arms, finish on the collar and cuffs. Washes up well.

November 15, 2020

Comfortable

Very comfortable. I am 57 128 lbs and medium fits me good. I have a few of these sweaters. They hold up through washing and drying without pilling

November 14, 2020

Runs very small

I usually wear a small in Patagonia clothing but I probably should have listened and sized up to a medium or even large. This runs very small! Qualify is nice but I do wish there were pockets.

Thanks for your feedback on the sizing and features! This pullover is a "slim" fit, so you may wish to size up. If you're looking for pockets, we recommend our Re-Tool Snap-T Pullover, Retro Pile Marsupial, Lightweight Better Sweater Marsupial Pullover, or Los Gatos Hooded Pullover. Please reach out to us if you'd like [help](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) to return or exchange your fleece top!

So warm

This is heavier than a regular fleece and perfect for cold days.

Happy

Happy with my purchase and comfortable

Versatile piece for cold climate

I live in a cold climate, so I need a lot of clothes that work well with layering. This works perfectly. I sized up from medium to large, which gave a looser but good fit. Sleeve and torso length are nice. Thin enough to wear under coats, but does keep you warm. My complaint is it was already pilling along the sides where my arms rub against it aft... Read Moreer 2 wears and the brushed fleece on the inside looks worn. So - questionable quality but useful.

Response from Patagonia
December 11, 2020

We appreciate your feedback on this and suggest trying to remove that pilling at home with something like a sweater stone. Unfortunately, pilling can be unavoidable with knit garments but you are also always welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) anything you are unsatisfied with.

Warm and cuddly snug

I had purchased a lavender one while in Rocky Mt National park. I had been underdressed for cold open car ride. It was perfect.. warmth and some wind protection.. Then I was delighted to find it on your web site and ordered a Gray one. Equally pleased.. Just would caution don't plan to wear much under them.. they fit snuggly.

November 13, 2020

Tailored to perfection!

Very cozy, the tailoring is perfect.

November 13, 2020

LOVE THIS JACKET

I LOVE THIS JACKET. IT IS A LITTLE TIGHTER THAN ANY OF MY OTHER XL JACKETS BUT IT ISN'T UNCOMFORTABLE. IT IS FASHIONABLE & WARM.

November 13, 2020

Good quality

Nice looking good quality.

November 13, 2020

Perfect Lounge/Everyday Wear

Got this since it was on sale and I love how warm and comfy it is. Its my go to sweater now at home and casual wear for when I go out, specialty for the fall season. I'm super happy with my purchase and the quality of the sweater. The only thing I wish it came with is hand pockets.

November 13, 2020

Warm but too snug

Very fitted, snug across chest. I can wear t-shirt, but not a bulky shirt underneath. Size up.

November 13, 2020

Comfortable

Love this - its super comfortable and very warm. My favorite thing to throw on after work and on the weekends.

November 13, 2020

Super soft & warm!

I love how this fits. Not boxy or bulky but not slim fit either. Super warm & so soft! Bought mine on sale & I wish I wouldve ordered at least 2 in different colors! I could wear this everyday in the Winter in WI!

November 13, 2020

Loved it

It was a gift for my wife. Fitting is perfect and I love my wife wearing it.

November 13, 2020

Style and warm

More on the fitted side. Warm nice for Wisconsin fall and winter!

November 13, 2020

warm

this is warm just runs small

November 12, 2020

The style and fit don't work for a slim athletic figure

The quality appears great and I'm sure it would last and wear well. However I returned it because it is designed for a pear-shaped figure. I bought a medium to have adequate shoulder room. The bottom flares out and is too short on my body and it looks dumb on a 115 lb person with slim hips. The sleeves are extra long and my arms aren't sh... Read Moreort. More knuckle length. Also I am very tired of princess seams on everything. How about some items of classic sportswear for women with sleek lines.

November 12, 2020

Great Quality

Love this! Bought a blue and grey one. Im 5 e and weigh 127lbs and got a medium size as I heard it ran small. Fits perfectly.

November 12, 2020

Warm for winter

Love all Patagonia jackets, sweaters and vests. Very warm for winter boating using layers of Patagonia.

November 12, 2020

So comfortable!

This is one of my favorite tops. It is soft, warm and looks great, too. I am 5'5", 125 pounds and the medium is perfect, even with a tee shirt underneath. Only improvement might be a pocket on the side, but that does not detract from what a great piece this is. I definitely would recommend this top.

November 12, 2020

Super soft and comfortable.

This is my new favorite sweater. Definitely recommend.

November 12, 2020

Warm and toasty!

Love the better sweater so much! It keeps me so warm without it being bulky. Fashionable, comfortable and so warm! I have it in 3 different colors because its so great. Definitely size up especially if youre going to layer it.

November 12, 2020

Warm and cozy sweater

Great warm cozy sweater for early morning walks

November 12, 2020

Warm and Cozy

I love the sweater fleece. I ordered a medium because it was a slim fit. It is a little long for my height (5'3) but fits fine through the body.

November 12, 2020

Super warm

I love this fleece. Keeps me really warm and the material is very soft. And very glad about the discounted price. Will purchase a different color!

November 12, 2020

Very Warm

Patagonia sweaters are a go to clothing to wear on a cold day. Love to wear them with a vest and no coat.

November 12, 2020

Comfy

Very happy with the design and the quality of the make.

November 12, 2020

Comfort an Warmth

I love the Better Sweater and would buy every color if and wear every day of the fall and winter seasons. I have three now so, I'm working on that. Since COVID and working from home this is the best and most used piece of clothing I have.

November 12, 2020

Stylish

Even though this item is very stylish, I had to order an XL so it wouldn't be tight on me. Front pockets would be nice. Didn't keep me all the way warm in 65 degree weather in the evening.

November 12, 2020

Super warm and soft

Its the most comfortable and warm sweater, its worth to buy.

November 12, 2020

Warm and cozy. Size up for a roomier fit.

My first Patagonia purchase. Love the color and fabric. Feels very cozy! The only thing that could make this pullover better would be pockets!

November 12, 2020

Slim fitting

Nice jacket. I'm average size. It runs slimmer.

November 12, 2020

Comfy and cute

Keeps your super warm and is comfortable.

November 12, 2020

Runs small should have read reviews

Love it and will exchange but I think I like the full zipper better . I should have read reviews. It runs crazy small. I have an extra small and it was beyond tight.

November 11, 2020

Love this fleece

I recently bought this on sale, I have some zip up fleeces but was looking for something to pop on in place of a sweater. This is really warm, and has a thicker feel than the synchilla jacket I have. This is true to size too, the Synchilla I ordered was a L and is too big in all honesty but this fits just right.

November 11, 2020

So comfortable!

This has become by go-to while I work from home in my chilly house. It is nice and warm for how lightweight it is. Fits perfectly and is exactly what I wanted.

November 11, 2020

Way too small

This sweater was so small that it fit my daughter who wears a size 4. Very disappointed.

November 11, 2020

Love it

Runs small but I prefer my clothing oversized. Love it and get lots of compliments

November 11, 2020

Awesome quality

This is a nice thick sweater that can be used as a layer under the jacket or on its own. I purchased it in black and it looks very nice. Fits true to size for a fitted look.

November 11, 2020

Too snug

I wasnt expecting it to be fitted. I prefer a loose fit so I can layer underneath. No complaints about quality.

November 11, 2020

Cozy and warm

Pro: cozy, warm, soft, comfortable Con: tight on shoulders, loose on waist

November 11, 2020

Cozy comfy sweater

Bought this for my wife. She digs it. Def not quite as long as she likes for wearing with yoga pants but overall good fit.

November 11, 2020

Lightweight and warm

I was in the market for a good quality sweater and thoroughly researched brands. Patagonia caught my eye because of the focus on social impact with a value on quality. Im extremely satisfied with my purchase and have ordered a few more for family members to enjoy this winter. Highly recommended for committed hikers and fellow snowboarders!

November 10, 2020

Great everyday piece!

I bought this for my teenage daughter. It's perfect for chilly days and looks great. She went up one size in this due to it being really fitted. She's normally a size 6 and we got a medium and it was perfect.

November 10, 2020

Warm and cozy

Really wished it didnt run so small. Im afraid to wash it because I might not be able to wear it. A large is usually perfect size and even a bit big but not with this pullover. A bit disappointing.

November 10, 2020

Love the casual look snd feel.

Soft in the inside, stylish on the outside. Warm but not too warm. I own this in 4 colors. One in a M for when hanging out and feel slouchy.

November 10, 2020

Perfect Choice...

I am ecstatic over my new Patagonia Better Sweater! These r Extremely Nicely made! They r Comfortable, Soft, Classy, Warm, EXCELLENT Quality for the price...I own 4-5 in different colors to match with whatever I wear...They r perfect for casual wear or dress up or office wear...I have purchased medium & large due to the fact I Always layer duri... Read Moreng the cold months here in Inland Northwest...I am 5ft tall weigh 125lbs which a medium fits ABSOLUTELY Perfectly with moving rm but for layering a large works better for mobility with a sweater or thick shirt underneath...Also I really like the fact on the Patagonia Better Sweater is cut longer in the booty area to help keep it warm since I'm Always cold...I Highly Recommended the Ladies Order up u will b Pleased u did!

November 9, 2020

size up!!!

I'm 5'5 ~125lbs and based on the size chart they would have had me order an XS. After reading reviews and being warned by a relative to size up, I decided to go with the M because I prefer my sweatshirts and outerwear to have some room in them. I'm super glad I went with the M because a S would've been super snug and there'... Read Mores no way the XS would've fit. The sleeve length is good, it comes down to the halfway point on my hands but I prefer long as opposed to short. I can comfortably wear this with just a sports bra or a L/S tee underneath, and there's no way I would've been able to had I ordered the S.

November 9, 2020

Great looking sweatshirt

This is my second better sweater sweatshirt so I knew to go up a size. I love how warm it is and how it still looks nice enough to wear to lunch as opposed to most sweatshirts.

November 8, 2020

Yes

November 8, 2020

Flattering fit and so comfy

The Better Sweater has a figure flattering slimmer fit. I am relatively tall and trim but a bit larger in the chest. I decided to go with the medium because of my long arms and boobs. I normally have to go up a size to get these aspects to fit but not in this sweater. The sleeve length fit nicely, not too tight in the chest, I still look like a hav... Read Moree a waist and it doesnt look boxy. Cant wait for more cold weather to wear my new sweater.

November 8, 2020

Runs small in general, and not great if you are busty.

This runs small all over, but especially in the bust. If you are not small-cheated, I would recommend looking at different Patagonia styles or sizing up by at least one full size.

November 7, 2020

Super comfy

Fits well, nice fleece on the inside, and keeps you warm but not hot. Great for layering too when it gets cold

November 7, 2020

Weird size

I bought two of those jackets but different colors: Black and Birch White. They both are size small, but it is so disappointed because Black runs a lot bigger at the bottom than Birch White.

Hey, thanks for taking the time to write this review. The sizing shouldn't change between colors so it's possible the one you received was mislabeled. Feel free to give us a call at 800-638-6464 or [chat in](patagonia.com) whenever you have the chance so we can help figure out what's going on.

November 7, 2020

Comfortable and warm sweater

I love the look of the Better Sweater material. This pullover fits very well. Its definitely a slim fit but stretchy and comfortable. For outerwear i am sort of between sizes L and XL and the large here fit perfect. I just wish it had front pockets. Washes well.

November 6, 2020

Extremely short

I was very excited to receive this fleece, but couldnt be more disappointed. It is so short it looks like someone shrunk it. I usually wear an XS but sized up to a S based on a few reviews. Sending it back.

November 6, 2020

Disappointed

Love the top itself but... I have 2 of these and just ordered a third one In another color - same size as I have currently, but this is much larger. Too big and now a hassle to return. Why would you change the sizing???

November 6, 2020

Cute but snug

Love this look and feel of this sweater. Navy color is nice too. Its a little snug so can only wear a thin layer underneath. For reference Im 5-4 and 108lb. Also wish it had pockets. Id probably get a medium next time.

November 5, 2020

Nice one

Pretty true to size and best quality!

November 5, 2020

Perfect for fall/winter

I bought one for my sister and one for myself. Always love Patagonia and this product is no different! I'm 5 ft. 4 in. and this hits at my hips and fits perfectly. Super warm and comfortable!!

November 5, 2020

Runs very small

This is a cozy, nicely made top but, like others have said, it runs very small. I am petite and well-endowed; still wear a medium on top sometimes but more often a large. When I saw that others said that this ran small, of course, I chose the large, to be careful, and am glad I did. It is quite snug for a large. I'm not a big person so I have ... Read Moreto wonder how this item is sized. I would have guessed it was mis-marked as a medium. Oh, well, it's cute and comfy, but I won't be able to wear a turtleneck underneath or anything else. A word to the wise!

Super Comfy

This is a very comfotable and warm sweater. It is fitted, but that gives it a nice look and not bulky.

Super attractive

my boyfriend had one, and i got it to match him. it looks super nice! had to exchange an xs for s as it ran a bit small.

November 4, 2020

Super cozy and cute!

Perfect pullover for a hike with the kids or while out running errands. For reference I am 57, 170 pounds and athletic build, I purchased an XL to allow for layering a light tee underneath.

I absolutely love this fleece its the perfect thickness to layer with a puffy when needed or to wear on its own

SUPER WARM, FITTED

If you like absolutely fitted and no wiggle room then TTS is right however, if you like a little room for comfort definitely size up!

November 4, 2020

Very cozy and warm

Soooo versatile! I can wear this anywhere- from work to out on the trails. Its very warm, but not constricting. Its great for my early morning walks in Iowa where the wind gets nippy before the sun comes out. Still fashionable enough that I wear it to work and grocery shopping!

November 3, 2020

Super soft

I was looking for a good quality gray sweater and Im so glad I came across Patagonia. You can feel the difference of quality. I would recommend this product to everyone looking for the perfect gray warm sweater.

October 30, 2020

Product Changed??

I bought my first one two or three years ago, and since I loved it I got a second in a sale a few weeks ago. Upon receiving it I was taken aback by a few differences -- The fleece material seems a tad thinner than the old one, making it overall more floppy and less stiff. It's not necessarily bad and it's still warm but it just feels more... Read More like a normal shirt not by Patagonia. Neck lining fabric is stiffer, not soft. The knit pattern also seems more dense than the old one. I know brands sometimes switch manufacturers over time and these differences don't really make it worse, but my BIGGEST GRIPE is that the SIZING changed!!! The new one is significantly smaller. Both are in size S, but the old version is 2 cm wider in the body and 1 cm wider in the arms. This makes the new fit noticeably tighter and less comfortable. My measurements are bust 36 in. and waist 28/29 in. It is tightest in the shoulders and underarms, which also makes the neck uncomfortable to zip up completely. I am upset because I am not sure if I can exchange for an M, since it was purchased during a sale. Maybe this shirt will be the motivation I need to lose some weight :(

Perfect fit, but size up if you want to layer underneath

I looked through all other reviews for XS and didn't see a review that fit my profile, so hopefully this helps someone!

The rest is a perfect fit and likely will only fit a small/thin t-shirt under, but I'd likely wear my nano puff anyway. Definitely size up if you're looking to wear more layers underneath. I'm petite 115lbs and curvy on bottom. When pulled down, this sweater covers half my booty and is a perfect fit in arm length and the waist.

October 27, 2020

Love it - Order a size up though

I ordered a small however I wish I ordered a medium. I was inbetween the two sizes and usually wear either a medium or small in most of my times. After reading most of the reviews I went with a small but would much rather be wearing a medium. The small fits fine but I can't wear anything underneath it and it's a bit hard to take off.

Black one is classy and warm!

Love the better sweater. I can wear it to work and it feels like Im wearing a hoodie, but its a warm, nice-looking sweater.

This is my second Better Sweater purchase except this time I got it in a Large. I bought a Medium in the other which fit pretty snug, but not too tight like its supposed to.

Love this!

I had ordered a medium which I normally wear, however I found it a bit smaller than I expected.

Great for wearing to grocery store, casual restaurant, walks, or hikes. Keeps you very warm. Does not have size pockets, only one zippered pocked on the sleeve to store key, money, or credit cards.

September 9, 2020

Warm yet functional

I wear this at work to keep warm and find that I can do all my duties without feeling too bulky. Love it for hiking as well!

September 8, 2020

Cute but runs small

I was super excited to wear this but unfortunately it does run small. I normally purchase my tops M/L So I went with a large on this. Next time Ill know to size up.

Love this sweater

I have this sweater in a size small (my usual size) and really like it but found that it runs a bit small. I purchased a second in a medium and the fit is much better. This is an amazing layering piece as it's not too bulky but provides a lot of warmth and comfort. Great for outdoor activity and looks put together enough for wear in the office... Read More.

September 8, 2020

Love it!

I love all things Patagonia, this sweater is no exception. I do wish it had pockets, but other then that, it is great!

September 8, 2020

Highest Quality

Had one of these that I loved, but it was lost. Purchased a new one during sale. They run small, so if you want it loose enough to layer another sweater under order up. Im 55, 108lbs. ordered a Medium ... its perfect for me.

September 8, 2020

Great but too long

I love the quality/durability/ warmth, it has an almost perfect fit, chest length and size is true but the sleeves are about 6 inches too long every time. I feel their clothes is made for much taller people.

September 7, 2020

Completely satisfied

Great, durable product. Have been wearing my kids & now got my own. Wear it as a single layer or under Patagonia jacket. I love it!

September 7, 2020

Super Warm, Looks Nice

I got this because I don't always want to wear a hoodie. I wanted a warmer mid layer for camping. This seems like it fits the bill. And it looks good! Fits really well and is very comfortable.

September 7, 2020

Warm and comfortable

I have several full zip versions of the Better Sweater as it is a versatile jacket. As a marine scientist I often layer this jacket under heavier gear when working outdoors. I have had a bit of difficulty getting the 1/4 zip Better sweater in the correct size. This small is too snug, while the medium was a little large. But the style and detail of ...

Super comfortable! Not big enough to layer something underneath. But thats ok... it would probably be to hot.

Tried it on as soon as it came in the mail and I love it ! Its comfy and true to size . Cant wait to wear it this winter! Got it in black and Grey.

Nice but runs small

I like the jacket but I am 5'3' and 125 lbs. and the Medium fits but not much room to move around. Next time I will likely order a large.

Hello Linda, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. The Women's Better Sweater® 1/4-Zip Fleece is designed with a Slim Fit so it does have a snugger fit to the body. If you prefer a little more room, you can always [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) the item under our warranty.

September 5, 2020

Warm but size up

I got one after borrowing my daughters. I normally wear a small in most items and the Medium fits ok. Sleeves are too long as they are for me on most Patagonia items

September 5, 2020

Pipi V longsleeves

The sweater is stylish and sleek, perfect casual sweater. The sleeves are too long for my short arms, there should be an option for an inch less. Material is a little scratchy on the outside pretty soft on the inside. A little snug on me and stiff the first few wears. 4 stars for overall style and wear.

September 5, 2020

Soft good fit

Nice body shape and super soft inside!

September 4, 2020

Staple

As entitled, these are a wardrobe staple for me. I have three of them and love how comfortable, incredibly warm yet light and breathable, and fitted they are without being constricting. At the sale price they are a very worthwhile purchase. My one complaint is the sizing is inconsistent. The three I have are a Navy size Large, Black size Large, and... Read More Century Pink size Large. The Navy fits true to size, the black fits more like an XLarge, and the pink fits more like a Medium. They were all bought within a year of each other. So you may have some trouble there. Still, I would highly recommend.

September 4, 2020

Great purchase!

This sweater did not disappoint! Got it in black and cannot wait to wear it this winter.

September 4, 2020

So comfy

Purchased this in medium but, it felt a little on the small side. Exchanged for a large. Haven't worn it yet but, I think I will like the extra room and being able to wear another shirt underneath if I want. When I tried it on, it felt sooo comfortable!

September 4, 2020

Perfect for Fall

This will be perfect for fall. I can't wait to wear it. I did size up because it is a slim fit and I wanted to be able to layer it.

September 4, 2020

A Great Staple

I love Patagonia's Better Sweaters and practically live in a hoodie that I purchased several years ago. They wear great and hold up well. The fit is definitely trim (I'm 5'7'' 123 lbs) which makes it a great layering piece. If you want a looser fit, I'd size up.

September 4, 2020

Nature-Lover

I really like my new sweater! Its so soft and warm. It runs small. Even though I ordered a medium, it is a bit snug. I wish it had a more relaxed fit, so I can layer. Other than that, its a keeper. Definitely a fall/winter staple.

Comfy!

Love the sweater. I owned the full zip and sized up a bit on the quarter zip since I think it can run a tad smaller than the full zip. Both are very comfortable. Im a bit bummed it started pilling after a month but Ill just need to find out how to remove some of pulling

Ultimate comfort

I am a teacher, in my 60's and my husband purchased one of these as a gift for me. I loved it so much, that I have bought several other Patagonias. They make me feel comforted, warm and loved.

Looks baggy

I guess you really can't go by these reviews because everybody's body differs even when you're similar height/weight..

This sweater is so comfortable and warm and I love wearing it! I would definitely recommend it!

October 22, 2019

So warm

I’m normally an XS (I’m 5’4” and 110 lbs) but I got a S so I could layer underneath the sweater, and it still fits my form really well, but leaves a little room to throw on an extra shirt underneath if I wanted to. It’s also SO warm and comfortable to wear for athletics or casually.

October 20, 2019

Love it!

I am petite (5'2", 90lbs) with thin arms, and the XS fits perfectly. I love the warmth that this sweater/fleece offers, and the Flora Pink color is a lovely departure from the other fleece tops in my closet. I haven't worn or washed it yet, so I really hope I don't experience a problem with pilling.

New 1/4 zip sweater

Love it. Fit is perfect. Great color!

October 9, 2019

Great deal

I purchased the better sweater at a price of 50% off- a great deal. I’m 5’9 and ordered a medium. It’s fitted but I can definitely wear a thin long-sleeve under it. I’m very happy with this purchase.

October 9, 2019

Beautiful

Warm, great zipper pockets, perfect for Floridians just moving to New York.

Great fit, unfortunate color

Fit was great, style was great, would definitely buy again...but the color was all wrong. Way to close to my skin tone. Will try another! For reference, I’m 5’6” with broad shoulders and well endowed, XL fit nicely.

Gift for wife

She loves the sweater and puts it on almost daily, so I ended up buying a second one in a different color!

Even before the dog bite, I would've still given the sweater a fantastic rating. It is well made, super comfortable, and really cozy! Basically everything I want in a pullover. The silhouette is also fitted in a very flattering way. I'd give this sweater way more than five stars if I could.

It’s very comfortable and breathable, so I’m not too warm and not too cool in a variety of temperatures! I could wear this everyday!

Warm pullover

I really like the pullover. It is size appropriate and the color is nice!

May 8, 2019

Love it!

I wear this sweater all the time. It does run small. For reference, I’m 5’4 and 134 lbs and the medium fits me fine for a more fitted look. My husband liked it so much that he bought one for himself!

It's my favorite sweater. Great design for comfort and warmth.

Great gift

I bought this for my daughter and she loves it! It's a great color and a great fit! And as always, great quality! Definitely worth the money!

Very Warm Sweater!!

Very warm and comfy!! My only issue is I have very narrow hips and it is very wide at the bottom. Other than that I love it. I’m 5’4 115 lbs. Small fit good other than the bottom.

I originally got it in

I originally got it in a size S since everyone said to size up even though I normally wear XS. It did work for a somewhat oversized fit, but since it's made to be a slim fit I had areas of the back and arms that fit weird. I exchanged it for the XS and it fits perfectly! Super flattering to my figure while being really warm and cozy.

This is the second one

This is the second one I purchased! I love these. They’re so comfortable and versatile. Everyday wear or on the slopes. Highly recommend.

Fits for me

I was hesitant on the size at first based on reviews from others. I wasn't sure on a small or a medium. I went ahead and bought a small and I'm glad I did. For me, it's fitted at the shoulders and pretty straight fit through the hips. To give an idea of my size, I'm 5'2" and 115lbs, but athletic (slightly broader shoul... Read Moreders). I was mostly concerned with the fit around the arms because I usually get a medium when I buy pullovers for that reason. I've used it with both a tee shirt and a long sleeve tee underneath and it fits fine. It doesn't give me more room for that, though. Maybe, if I ordered a medium, I could layer more. The only downside is that on a cold windy day, it doesn't block any wind. That's not a deal breaker for me, though.

So warm

It lived up to the hype - the warmest sweatshirt I’ve ever had. Very soft and comfortable, too. Absolutely adore this!

Wonderful sweater

Normally in Patagonia if a top has a regular fit I'll take an xs and in a slim fit, I'll take a small. But in the Better Sweater the medium fits perfectly. The small was a little tight across the bust and under the arms. The medium has a flattering relaxed fit, is very comfortable and gives me additional length. Another customer commented... Read More that it doesn't seem as thick as it used to -- around 2010 or so -- and I've found that to be true, but it's still warm and cozy. It does pill, unlike Patagonia's straight fleece, but overall I love it.

Cute, odd chest

This sweater is very cute - the colors, materials, and "knitting" feel very nice for polyester. The inside is a nice, soft texture. The tag says that you can machine dry this, but I would line/air dry. This isn't the best for layering. I am 5'2" and about 115lbs and I found the Small's shoulders, arms, and chest very ... Read Moretight with a thin long sleeve underneath. Just by itself it fits fine, other than the chest. I'm a 32C and the chest is pretty oddly tight even without layers - I can't imagine someone with a larger chest than me being comfortable in this. Not a deal breaker for me, but something to consider for well endowed ladies.

March 13, 2019

Quite fitted

I'm 5'4 and 93lb, skinny. I ordered the XS and although the body fits well, the armpit area is a bit tight. I feel like the medium would have been too loose on me. I would recommend most people to order up a size. It is warm and feels like nice quality.

Upgraded fit too long compared to older versions & lighter material.

I own approximately 5 Better Sweaters since 2010, I love them all. I use them as mid layer when its below 20 degrees and windy or by itself with a t-shirt. I love that they are soft, warm, and the fit WAS great. Recently received my latest addition to the collection and noticed the fit was upgraded and it just doesn't work anymore for me. For ... Read Morereference, I am 5'2" with a short torso, small on top and curvy in the hip area. The upgraded fit is longer than all of my previous better sweaters by approximately 2" and not only is it longer, but it also has a longer zipper that almost reaches my waistline. When I tried it on, I sat and the zipper bunched...not a good look/feel. The material also seems lighter and not as warm as the others. Don't get me wrong, it is still warm, but just a bit lighter. I love the upgraded neck liner material. Would have returned, but I had already taken the tags off (thinking it was the same as the others), so my sister got lucky that day. She also owns previous versions and noticed the same differences, but she has a longer torso and it worked better for her.

Cute & Comfy

I'm 5' 8" and 130lbs and had to exchange a Medium for a Small. I like the Small fit better because it isn't as boxy, and more slim fitting for me. It's very comfortable, soft, and cute. I'm very happy with the customer service with my exchange as well!

February 28, 2019

Cozy, size up!

This is a cozy sweater like pullover. I am 5’10” 155lbs with muscular shoulders- I ordered a medium and it is pretty fitted.

February 23, 2019

Go to sweater for chilly days

This purchase has more than exceeded my expectations. Perfect for hikes or running errands. I am 5’7 110 pounds and the extra small fits well

February 22, 2019

warm

It's warm and comfy, although a little on the heavy side. The inside is very soft. Like it. We've been buying Patagonia for years, my husband ordered 3 products for me this year, this is the only true to size piece I got.

February 22, 2019

Really Comfy but Short

I love the feel of this sweater, but it fits strangely small--the sleeves are short and the sweater ends above my hips, where I expected it to end. I typically wear Small, but ordered Medium to accommodate shirts underneath and rolling/pushing up the sleeves. The sleeves on ~4 inches above my wrists and ~1 inch above my belt line. I still wear the ... Read Moresweater, it's just...weird. It's not tight on me, it's just too short all over. I'm 5'10" and have 6'2" arm-span. Patagonia jackets and shirts usually fit me pretty well.

Ligther Weight than Before

I Loved my original Better Sweater - bought probably 10 years ago. But alas, it was either misplaced or taken. So, I ordered a replacement. While the look, styling, and fit are all the same as my previous sweater, this new sweater is not nearly as thick or warm as the old one. It'll do, but I hope whomever has my old sweater REALLY appreciates... Read More it. I miss you sweater :(

Not made for my arms!

I am in good shape exercise nut-but I am of European descent- regular arms-which do have a little meat on them -not fat but not stick thin...the fleece is adorable but just too tight in the arms. I am not sure who these companies are making this new tight arm cut of fleece for-but for anyone in my family-it would be too tight in the arms...now I ha... Read Moreve to pay to ship it back-I didn't anticipate that or I wouldn't have gotten it-but I have never gotten a small that I couldn't wear before!

February 21, 2019

Again, very small

Would like to echo previous reviewers that say this runs small. I wear an XS in all other Patagonia sweaters and jackets. 5'4" 105lbs 30B and found the XS to be surprisingly uncomfortable in the arms and shoulders, which is unusual because this part of my body is especially small. The sleeves are also too short. Will be returning for s S.... Read More

"Tomato" is bright coral; runs small

First: I like this top and plan to keep it. However, the color is NOT anything remotely resembling a tomato, unless you have tomatoes that are bright coral/orange colored! This color is BRIGHT. Also, as other reviewers have noted, the item runs small. I generally fit a size Large in Patagonia tops pretty much perfectly, but I got an XL in this and ... Read MoreI'm glad I did (other than the sleeves being an inch or two too long). ORDER UP. I am 5' 6" tall, usually a size 12 blouse (a 10 if there's some stretch), with pretty balanced proportions. On the plus side, the style of the top is nice and the sale price was good. It's cozy and stretchy and I'm going to try to be bold enough to wear something that's not muted grey, blue, black, etc. Wish me luck.

February 20, 2019

RUNS VERY SMALL

I love the look of this but it runs VERY small. I am typically a small but had to size up to a medium because of how tight it fit. I was very surprised. Love the material.

February 19, 2019

Best quarter zip I’ve ever owned!

I bought this for hiking in Colorado and to leave at our camper out there, but loved it so much that I bought another to keep here. It’s just the right thickness and it’s ridiculously warm without being too warm. I’m 5’1” and 112 pounds and bought a small. It’s a bit long in the arms but nothing too bad and fits perfectly everywhere else. I’ve told... Read More everyone I know who lives or vacations in colder climates to spend the money and buy at least one of these!

Very Small

I have had my eye on this sweater for months, however, I ordered based off the size chart, and got a medium. But, when i received it, I could barely get it over my chest. It was extremely too small. I loved the material, and the sweater was very comfortable. However, if it would've been a bigger size, I would've been completely satisfied.... Read More So, if you plan on purchasing this, be careful! Make sure you adjust your sizes a little!

February 16, 2019

Own several

I own two and my husband had one. They all pill. Some colors pill worse than others, but all pill. Patagonia’s answer is to buy a pill shaver. They will send you a link as to “how to use a pill shaver”. Spend $100 for a warm sweater but expect to spend your life de-pilling or donating to Good Will.

Love this sweater

I love this sweater! It’s warm, comfortable, cute and it’s lasted a ton of wear and still looks great.

February 13, 2019

Exchanged!

I originally ordered the large based on reviews telling to size up. I wish I would have followed the size chart instead & gotten the medium. Now that I exchanged, the medium fits so, so much better! The large made me look like a tent in front & back with too much fabric. I'm 5'7'' & ~140 lbs. It is just a tad tighter... Read More in the shoulder area & slightly in the bust but pretty good fit overall! The medium looks more like I wanted it to, fitted. I didn't plan on wearing a layer under, but I could see why you would size up if you wanted to be able to do that.

February 9, 2019

LOVEEEE

it is extremely soft and lightweight which I really love. I definitely recommend sizing up if you want it to be less fitting. I am definitely going to buy this again

Fit is very small

I normally wear a small to medium, 5'4' about 128. I received a M for Christmas and could barely get it on. Not sure how this sizing is designed to fit, but it is very snug. If you are planning on layering order up. Had to return.
