We recently discovered that certain styles of the Capilene® Cool Daily and the Tropic Comfort product lines do not meet the 50+ UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) rating we claimed for them. They still offer solid UV protection—it’s just not as much as advertised. If you own one of these shirts, click below for more information.Learn More

Nice looking jacket- short sleeves
This is a attractive jacket with a roomy hood and warm fabric. I returned it because the buttons were not ideal (stiff and took too long), the sleeves were a tad too short, and the elastic around the wrists seemed incongruous with the rest of the jacket. The fit overall felt off to me so back it went.
By far the best cool/all weather jacket Ive ever owned. So comfortable and versatile, this really well fitting jacket is definitely my go to for most days. It provides just the right amount of warmth without being bulky. I feel really privileged to own one. Thanks for making a great product!
Beautiful Style but pilling already
I love the style of this jacket! Perfect for being outside on a chilly day! The fit is awesome! After only a few weeks of wear, the cuffs are already starting to pill. Sad, I thought this company would use a really great knit that would hold up like the rest of the jacket!!!
Thank you for the review on the Better Sweater Fleece Coat. Unfortunately, pilling is possible with any knit garment and the culprit is friction. There are ways to prevent it with extra care, but over time it's inevitable. Try using a sweater stone to remove the pilling, we have this [handy guide](https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/How+to+Remove+Pilling+from+a+Patagonia+Sweater/19439) to help. If you give that a go and find that you're still unsatisfied with how the sweater is wearing, feel free to send it back to us!
Wonderful Warm Hoodie Coat
I needed a lightish fleece to wear during pregnancy that would mostly cover my belly and help me make it from car into the doctors office for prenatal visits. All my other many patagonia fleeces were too small to cover my gargantuan belly, even the ones in extra large. But I wanted this one to work during and after pregnancy so I ordered a size lar... Read Morege, and although I've had my baby, I cannot be happier with this fleece before and after. I have a broadish back and this doesn't feel too tight or too loose. Wearing it with a tank top and sweatshirt is as comfortable as with just a long sleeve shirt. My only complaint is no zippers on the pockets! Come on Patagonia! As a now mom of 2, I need to close up my pockets properly to keep track of keys, masks, gloves, bibs, etc. Otherwise I love this and will wear it for a long, long time to come!! As help for size, I wear bra size 34DDD/36DD right now, size 30×32 levis jeans, and size 8/10 (between a medium and large) shirts.
Cozy, warm and stylish!
Originally ordered large - my usual size in a jacket, I needed to return it (awesome service) for med. my new jacket arrived in a week - fits perfect! Had been eyeing for a long time, happy I finally purchased! I wear it for everyday casual use - might try using for a hike/walk. Washes well too - doesn't lose its shape.
Warm, comfortable, and stylish.
I was going for a medium, but was sold out. Tried on the small, and it works okay. I feel like the arms could be a little longer, and I don't think the coat would fit as well f I have a bulky shirt/sweater under it. I think a medium would have been a little better for my build. It's quite warm and comfortable. The buttons give it a classi... Read Morec charm, but still modern. Color is more like a wine (purple/burgundy).
Cuddle type warmth....and cute
66 year old grandma who likes her warmth...and a bit of fashion, too. This sweater does both! Because of the cut, I can wear a small ( I'm 5'2" and weigh 128) I like the thigh length of this sweater, too. It keeps me warmer while wearing workout attire and running into the store for a few groceries on the way home. Love it!
It had no shape and was very large in body. Sleeves were very short. Returned
Hey Dana, we're so sorry to hear you weren't satisfied with the Better Sweater Fleece Coat. If you want the same material but more fitted, you could try the [Better Sweater Hoody](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-better-sweater-fleece-hoody/25539.html?dwvar_25539_color=BCW) or Better Sweater 1/4 Zip Pullover. Though these are not the "Coat" style, they will have more shape to them. We've passed your feedback along to our Design Team about the Fleece Coat and hope to not disappoint you in the future.
Super Cozy with Feminine Style
Ive had other better sweaters before and have appreciated their durability and warmth. However, I love that this one has more feminine styling with the seams and oversized hood. I have a large bust and also like that this jacket is roomy enough that I can wear layers underneath and its not too tight across the chest (a common problem in jackets for... Read More me). Its the perfect weight for our Pacific Northwest springs and falls.
Comfy, casual, but sleeves are very short
I usually order a Small and am fine with sleeve length. However, to ensure the sleeves were long enough, I ordered a Medium - and sleeves are sadly very short. Other than that, this is not a coat - it's a spring/fall hoodie that is great for wearing from home during Covid.
Perfect mid weight jacket and warm
I purchased this Better Sweater for an everyday casual mid weight jacket. I read over the reviews and ended up ordering a size small because of the reference it runs a little big. I would typically order a size medium in my other Patagonia clothing and jackets but took a chance. The small ended up being the perfect size with room to layer. So I wou... Read Moreld say due to the style of the coat it runs a little bigger than the other jackets and clothing. Overall I love the jacket and its very warm. I wore it out and about today in 33 degree MI weather and it kept me warm. I do have a Patagonia parka for longer outings though. I already suggested this coat to others!
I was nervous because of the mixed reviews but overall I think this is a great purchase. I am 54 and 113 lbs. I ordered a size small and am happy with the fit. Its not fitted but I dont feel like Im wearing a sack either. Theres definitely room to layer which is perfect for hiking. Especially since this is a thinner jacket and not a winter coat. Im... Read More very happy with this purchase.
Lovely color, noisy material under buttons
The hyssop purple is lovely and is what drew my attention to this coat. The fit is slightly boxy but only enough to allow me to wear something heavy underneath it, which is fine with me. The reason I dropped one star is that I don't like the material that lines the button area and the outer rim of the hood. It "rustles". The rest of ... Read Morethe fabric has a soft sound or no sound at all, but this material actually makes a bit of noise when touched/moved. It has the appearance of material that's typically placed on the outside of a water resistant garment. This material looks a tad cheap too. If I were Patagonia, I would have gone with a different option for this area.
I am 5'6" and weigh 230lbs. I purchased the XL assuming it would be to small and fit me in the spring. (I am working on loosing weight). It fits a little loose and will fit normal with a sweatshirt underneath. I purchased a XL other patigona coat which I could not even zip up, so I feel this runs really big. It was also not very warm, no ... Read Moredifferent then a sweatshirt.
W's Better Sweater Fleece Coat
The fleece is soft, the pockets are useful and well-placed, hood is a nice size (tho a little hard to put up w/the top button done). I agree w/other reviewers, calling it a coat is kind of a stretch, but it's a great long jacket! The fit isn't too boxy and is a little big in the body. But, I think that's a plus bc I can wear somethin... Read Moreg thicker than a t-shirt underneath. It's a perfect jacket for spring and fall and I've received many compliments on it. For reference, I'm 5'10", 135" and normally wear a 4 or 6. I am usually a S in Patagonia regular fit and M in slim fit. I got this in a M and am happy with the ability to layer underneath. It's comfy w/out looking sloppy. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 bc the material between the buttons doesn't lay smoothly when jacket is buttoned. But, it doesn't bother me enough to send it back.
Please bring back the old better sweater long coat from 2015!
I agree with the first reviewer and I am so disappointed in this new coat especially when compared to the 2015 long peplum version. It’s not really a coat more like a longer jacket... I loved the previous longer mid thigh coat from 2015 both in women’s and kids. My daughter has one too and I really wanted to get her another one as she’s has outgrow... Read Moren her previous one. But I can find it anymore. We went to try on this new style and it’s just not the same, it’s just like a sloppy longer version of the better sweater jacket. I also don’t care for the hood, and prefer the big collar in the older style. Please Patagonia if you are reading this please being back the old version or another long mid thigh better sweater coat! If you are just looking for a better sweater jacket then this I suppose is fine. The material is still soft and same as previous versions and the navy is a beautiful color.
Hi Mimi, we're sorry to hear you're disappointed with this new design! We are always redesigning our products based on many factors (including customer feedback), so this helps us immensely. Your feedback has been passed along to the appropriate team. Don't hesitate to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) this if you were looking to do so and haven't already.
love the fit, love the style.
this coat fits very true to size, and runs only a bit boxy in the body and arms, which is nice for fitting sweaters under on colder days. the coat is warm enough to wear out with a tee underneath for fall days. i've received many compliments on the coat already, and look forward to getting a lot of use out of it in years to come.
