Alright, but not sure what the hype is all about.
I was super excited to make my first purchase from Patagonia. Upon receiving the item, I was a bit underwhelmed. I am just not sure what the hype was all about. The material was not as soft or comfortable as I expected. The fit was as expected, but not as flattering as one would expect from a brand that has such a cult following.

Good but tight
I purchased this thinking it would fit similar to another Patagonia I have in the same size. This one I guess is a slim fit but I didn't know this so it is pretty tight but a size up would've been too big as well. I still like it though.
Thank you for the review on our Better Sweater Quarter Zip Fleece. If you'd like to switch the one you have now for a size up, feel free to get started on an exchange [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Sizing Has Really Changed
I have the better sweater jacket in an XS, and I like it, except the arms are slightly too short. The pullover in an XS, however, not only had short arms, it was so tight I could barely get it off. To try to remedy this issue, I sized up to a S, which swallowed me whole. I could have fit more than one me inside it. I have a S pullover from fall 201... Read More1, which fits perfectly fine, with slight extra room. I got a small then, because the XS arms were too short (mine are incredibly long). However, I can no longer size up to fix this issue. Patagonia seems to be trying to accommodate more people, within the same sizes, and I'm sadly being sized out. I ended up gifting the size small to a family member. Also, my 2011 pullover's colors were a warm grey and cream. I like the new birch white's cool grey, but I wish it would be paired with a cream, instead of white (for those of us with cool-toned skin, who look best in off-white).
Wanted to love it
I love the better sweater but the material for the black one seemed different so I returned it. It would be great if Patagonia would offer petite size for us shorter customers so that the sweater is not quite so long on us.
Thanks for sharing your feedback on our Better Sweater Quarter Zip Fleece. We're working on offering more extended sizing options, however, it does take some time. What we order is dictated by demand, so thank you for sharing your thoughts with us on this.

Better Sweater indeed!
The ultimate cozy sweater! Keeps me perfectly warm on hikes, but also great for chilly, early morning walks. I feel instantly warm and comfortable as soon as I put it on. For reference I'm 5'6" and 130lbs and I would have fit into the Small (chest and waist measurements fall in the Small category), but I have wider hips so my hip mea... Read Moresurement falls under Medium perfectly, so keep hip measurement in mind, ladies!
Im 50 and I will say the length was what I expected. Its just about right on the sleeves and a little long on the torso - but I expected that. I bought the navy blue and grey. Overall, theyre both roomy. However, the blue one was slightly tighter on the chest (34C). If it wasnt for the chest I feel like I could easily wear 2 layers or sized down to... Read More XXS. But honestly, just the sweater and a cami keeps me as warm as their other fleece thicker sweaters. Great purchase, would buy it in a lighter blue, too.
The fabric of this pullover isn't very stretchy, so pulling it on requires some wriggling. But it is comfortable and warm when it's on. My daughter got the zip-up Better Sweater jacket, which is amazing! I wish I had gotten that model and probably will buy one for myself. It's much easier to get on, and very cozy.
Hey there, thanks for the review. If you wanted to switch out your pullover for a zip up, you're welcome to do that. It would be a return and repurchase situation. You can begin your return [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html), and repurchase once a credit has been issued.
Please make Petite
I have purchased Patagonia for all if my outdoor active children. Now it was my turn. I am disappointed. Sleeves and torso are so long! I could not order a smaller size, as I dont think I could take it off easily.
Thanks for your feedback. We know extended sizing, including petites, is something the outdoor industry should move toward. We'll pass this suggestion along to our design team.
Super comfortable and warm
I'm 5'3 and about 120 lbs (not that curvy) and size S fits perfectly for me. I ordered XS first, and it ran very small, so I exchanged it for S. This sweater is so warm and comfortable. I wear this almost every day. I'm happy with my purchase and ordered this sweater in different colors.
In addition to being 5'7, I am about 135 pounds and 34B chest. I got the medium in this and I am very glad I didn't get the small. I think the medium is just perfect, but even still a bit difficult to get on and off. If you plan to wear layers under this, I would 100% size up. It keeps me warm and I love it, but I do find myself missing p... Read Moreockets, which I think would make this a perfect fleece jacket. Overall I am happy with my purchase
Don't let the weight of this fool you! This sweater keeps you WARM
This sweater is light weight and surprisingly warm! The fit is a little small (I'm a 34C and it was tight around the bust). I would recommend a large if you are a little chesty...but the length of the sleeves and shoulder fit are great.
Warm & Cozy
This sweater is comfortable and warm. Great for layering for a winter hike or walk. Im typically size small (4/6) and 510, and I went with size medium in this sweater. Other reviews mentioned that it runs a bit snug and small. I was wanting more of a relaxed fit. Im glad I sized up because the sleeve length is perfect and its not oversized. Perfect...

Super soft against skin!
It's totally a cute little sweater for lounging, running errands, or a walk. I am an XS, but I bought an S to layer clothing underneath without the sweater bunching up or looking bulky. It's the perfect fit- a little loose & lots of room to give. Perfect for layering under jackets or shirts under the sweater. I will say... I am notici...

I noticed Patagonia will shrink even on tumble dry low... not a lot, but enough that it changes the overall fit. I love the fit now so I will definitely be hanging over the chair to dry.
Fits petites well!
I debated between getting the XXS (my usual size at other retailers- I'm 100 lbs and 31-24-34) and the XS. Very glad I chose XS! The fabric has zero stretch and requires a bit of wiggling to get past my shoulders when taking it off, so an XXS would've gotten stuck. Fits well, looks nice, quite warm, and doesn't attract lint! The only... Read More thing I'd change if I could would be to ask for petite sizing - the torso length is 1-2 inches too long on me and lands at my low hip.
Great quality, very warm
This is my second purchase from Patagonia. Im an average size small and find this sweater to be fitted around the underarm and waist area. I would recommend order a size up for extra comfort. Im 5 2 and 120 lbs. I ended up giving the sweater to my daughter for Christmas.
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.
Comfortable, Warm, Soft

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!
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.
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.

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.
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.

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.

I have been eyeing this quarter zip for a while and was excited to see it go on sale, so I finally snagged one.

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.
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.
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.
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!
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.

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...

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.

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!
