Patagonia Men's Better Sweater® Fleece Vest

Kinda Large
August 21, 2021

For the breezied weathers of SF..

The 2 vests I got were perfect to size n fit well.. nice products..

July 11, 2021

Great customer service

Initially got size XL as a gift. Too tight across the chest even though I am 6 feet tall and weigh 198 with a bit of a belly. Returned for XXL and it fits perfectly. Customer service was great, had a problem with our printer and they helped me get a label to return the smaller item

Gift for my Dad - he loves it!

My husband has the version with sleeves, which is a go-to item for him. So I figured this vest would also be a winner as a gift for my Dad. This is perfect for chilly mornings or evenings. West Los Angeles is surprising chilly in the early mornings!! He loves it. Highly recommend. Looks nice and great quality. Thanks Patagonia.

Well fitting fleece vest

Im a vest guy and this one does everything a fleece vest SHOULD do. Look good and provide a layer of warmth while doing outdoor activities.

For quick cover-up

I love this vest, which is super-well made. What I like most is this garment "dresses up" whatever I'm wearing underneath. Also, the fabric is thick and tightly knit, which helps me stay warm even in a long-sleeve tee. I'll probably get another one, maybe one size larger (mine is a medium) and another color ( mine is grey). I ... Read Morewas never a vest fan before but am now!

This is warm enough to keep me outside in the early-spring, and dresses up very nicely. The fit is great - I plan on grabbing a few more colors!

It's a vest!

It's a vest. It's perfect to throw on when it's just a little chilly. Its comfortable and has good pockets. My wife thinks I look too much like a bro but I like it.

Collects lint

For some reason it collects lint in the washing machine and it does not come off in the dryer and the sweater is covered with white pieces of lint and is unwearable. I can send a picture.

Response from Patagonia
April 26, 2021

Hi Tommy, thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear about this, it sounds like your sweater is starting to pill. To reduce the chance of pilling we recommend laying the sweater flat to dry after washing rather than machine drying. In addition, we recommend a sweater stone to remove pills that have already occurred. With that said, if you're unsatisfied with the appearance of the sweater you're welcome to [return](

Super comfortable

Love the comfort and style.

Perfect for Work or Play

The Better Sweater Vest provides the perfect level of warmth to your core whether you are in a cold conference room or taking a hike on a cool spring or fall day.

April 14, 2021

Promise not delivered, cheep

The brand promised more than this jacket delivered: the material feels too synthetic, the color is marginal and the zippers hard. Not worth the price.

Hello Mahdad, thank you for sharing your feedback with us and we're sorry this vest isn't what you expected. For future purchases please feel free to read over our Features sections where we list everything from the fabric we use to the zippers and fit.

That core warmth helps

The color is great, the vest gives me that second layer to keep my core warm.

Great vest!

My wife gave me a better sweater vest for Christmas. I like it so much, I bought another in a different color. Its a great layer for our changeable Colorado weather.

Not as warm as old synchilla vest

The newer synchilla vest which I tried out last November was not as warm as my old one (Sty 25184), so I returned it and tried the better sweater vest. Same result.

I love this vest. Its well made, doesnt pill or sag and its incredibly warm to wear around the office or under a jacket.

I love Patagonia products (and mission), but their sizing is inconsistent. One item, M fits perfectly and the next item M is too small/large. Love the Better Sweater 1/4 zip (I own 3) M and they fit perfectly. Ordered the Better Sweater Vest and it was too small/tight. Bummer...

We're sorry to hear that the sizing was so inconsistent for you. In the future, we're always happy to provide measurements to help you decide what size to get, simply reach out to our [customer service team]( With that said, we'll be sure to pass this feedback along.

Not great fit

I am disappointed in the quality of the material of the vest. The fit is also too long for me. I wanted a vest to wear for more going out to a casual dinner or to church. The fit and quality is just not there. It will only be used for some hiking.

We're sorry that this didn't work out for you. If you're interested in a comparable piece that might be better suited for special occasions while also measuring in with a shorter length, we'd recommend the [Men's Retro Pile Fleece Vest](

Perfect for work wear

Really like warmth and lightweight of this product.

Nice color and warmth

Bought a size 3xl in this vest and it is a little large for my barrel body. But that was what I was after. It is well made as usual and the color (dark purple) is nice. All in all this vest is a winner that will see a lot of use.

The perfect vest

I have 5 Better Sweater fleece vests. From autumn through spring I wear one most waking hours because of their versatility. At home we keep the thermostat low to conserve energy.

Perfect for hiking, its another layer to add or subtract as the conditions dictate. The build quality is superb. Size is consistent from one years purchase to the next. Colors dont fade. The zippers work. My only wish is that you would make them in blaze orange. Thanks, Will in Winchster

At first I was skeptical, now I'm inVESTed in it!

A ton of people at my job wear Patagonia jackets and say they're the warmest things ever and extremely comfortable, and they're right.

Nice vest, but prefer previous version

I enjoy this vest, but I like the previous generation, which has elastic/stretchy sides, more. I mostly wear this vest with business casual attire. I also have the gray version in the same size, but it seems to be a little larger and doesnt fit as nicely as my black one.

February 15, 2021

Almost perfect, but time will tell

The fit on this is, for me, true to size. Normally a large will fit well and this large fits quite well. While a fleece on the inside, the exterior looks more like a knit sweater, which I really like. It is very nice looking. It also is a perfect warmth. Not too hot and not so thin the wind blows through it. It has added just the right warmth when ... Read Moreevenings and nights are getting chilly. My only concern and hence four stars, is that pilling of the exterior weave has started. So we'll have to see how it holds up from an aesthetic standpoint. Pilling notwithstanding, I'd highly recommend it.

Classic style, super comfortable!

Wonderful vest that goes with everything. Looks great for work or play. Easy to care for and durable.

Love the vest. Perfect for year round.

I purchased this for my boyfriend. I actually purchased two sizes as I wasn't sure of the size. I ended up keeping the med and returning the other size. The return process was super easy. The vest quality was great and perfect for year round use - walking, hiking, etc. He is 6'1" and slim. The M fit perfectly.

February 8, 2021


The vest has a nice feature where you can zip up the front to make a turtle neck. It is a very good fit and medium warm - what I was looking for.

Great with dress shirts and polos

I wear this with dress pants and dress shirts, and it goes well together.

Excellent for layered wear. Wish you would produce a hooded version.

Keeps Me Warm

The vest works great when layering with a heavier coat or just wearing it over a warm shirt.

Soft and versatile

I had originally ordered a medium but found it to be snug and not able to layer it as well (also was a bit painful blow to my ego that I might not be a medium anymore). But the vest is super soft and is a great layer over a shirt or under a jacket. Looks great and is functional.

Exactly as I’d hoped

Sharp looking, functional pockets and just the right weight for fending off a chill.

Love the sweater fleece

I have a Better Sweater vest and performance hoody. I love both. The knit weave is soft, comfortable, and more “formal” looking than plain fleece (like a sweater). They are very breathable, but on the flipside not wind resistant. I just wish they weren’t so expensive, otherwise I would get multiple in different colors.

Easy exchange process

Called customer service to make the exchanges and the process could not have been easier. The service agents that I spoke to were upbeat and very helpful. Will continue to make Patagonia my number one choice for purchasing family gifts!

Great casual vest

Great vest. Comfortable, mid weight, and looks good. The fabric looks like a sweater weave. It’s trim. I’m 6 feet, 146 lbs, and the M fits perfectly.

Great Every Day Piece

Last year, we bought Better Sweater Vests for everyone in our family. We live in cold climate areas and the vest is a great layering piece that always looks good. My husband wears his so much that I got him another one for Christmas this year.

I will admit, I stand outside the mainstream as many reviewers said this vest was a little on the losser side. But I have been buying Patagonia vests for years and find both the nano puff and this better sweater vest are much smaller than they were three or four years ago. I measuered one of my 5 year old nano puff vests and it measuered 23 inches ... Read Morewide just just under the arms. I stopped buying nano puff vests because the large was too tight in recent years. Hoping this Better Sweater vest would have the old fit of the Nano Puff, I took a chance. This vest is 21and 1/2 inches under the arms - a full 1 and 1/2 inches narrower than my old Nano Puffs. I would not care if the vest was relabelled as a narrow fit, but it is marked as a regular fit. My question: I buy ALL my Patagonia jackets in a large and there is ample room. Why did you crop 1.5 inches off the width of your vests and still label them as a “regular” fit? I think I would be swimming in the XL as I don’t have wide shoulders - so going up one size is not an option.

Comfortable and warm

Great vest, fits true to size. I wear it around the house and socially, it's not as well suited to hiking/activities as the tech vests.
