Patagonia Men's Better Sweater® Fleece Vest

Kinda Large
January 22, 2022

I've got a fever... for teal.

Haven't owned a fleece in forever and this one bangs! Warm, without the pit sweat. Stylish. I land between a medium and a large with Patagonia, but I'm happy in either.

January 22, 2022

This vest is super warm

Very nice, well made. My husband loves the fit! Other vests look sloppy. This one looks neat. My husband has taken to wearing vests during the cooler months. I could not find one that looked great on him. Then I started noticing men on my flights wearing vests. I would notice the ones that looked nice on them. I asked them what brand. It was Patago... Read Morenia! I had forgotten about this brand!! I was looking at North Face and Columbia. None of theirs look good on my husband. Perhaps we dont have a Patagonia store near me. He had never heard of Patagonia but I have. I ski and snowboard. My husband is not into winter sports. Now he loves his vest and knows about Patagonia. Keep up the good work!

Great Vest

This is my second vest. I have a black one and really like how it fits and how warm it is. I wear it all the time. Just felt I needed to add a grey one too.

Better Sweater Vest is the Best

As usual Patagonia sets the standard for others to follow/imitate. I am 5ft 10in 155 lbs and the medium fits neatly over a shirt; not too loose nor too snug. The pockets and their placement is just right; all with zippers. The chest pocket is large enough to hold an iPhone 12 in a somewhat bulky case fairly easily but its probably intended for eyew... Read Moreear; regardless its very useful and easily accessed. If you didn't know better you would never think that this is made of fleece as it looks like the knit that you find in sweaters. It offers a good amount of warmth and my hands love the feel of the micro fleece lined pockets. I wanted a versatile color so I purchased the black which really gives the impression of very dark charcoal. I also own a Better Sweater Jacket from a few years ago in a great color called sunbleached stone. Its a really versatile color as its a heather gray/beige and looks great with EVERYTHING from blue jeans to gray or olive or tan pants; basically everything that I own. If you're listening Patagonia, please issue the Better Sweater Vest in sunbleached stone! It also works better on warmer sunny days as the lighter color doesnt heat up from the sun like dark colors do. And in the warmer months it doesnt look like youre wearing a winter garment. I hope that my review is helpful. Thanks again for making such a great product!

A bit on the heavy side

Fit was on the large side and the vest was uncomfortably heavy,

January 11, 2022


Very happy with the vest. Fits well and keeps me warm.

January 10, 2022

Perfect underlayer

Received many compliments as to its appearance. Great underneath my micro puff jacket.

January 10, 2022


Like the fit and feel

January 9, 2022

Perfect layer for day to day warmth as needed

Looks good and high quality.

January 9, 2022

Nice but.

This vest looked so weird when worn. It was high and gappy in the shoulders and then very tight down the sides. It was for my son who wears tailored clothes but this was too narrow for comfortable wear. I sent it back and wont order Patagonia again as this is the second time I tried and it just doesnt fit my 511 190lb son well.

Professional and Comfortable

I am 140lbs and 59. The size small fits perfectly. It can be used both professionally and casually. Great for healthcare workers like myself or business professionals.

This was a gift for my boyfriend and it looks great and fits true to size. For reference, he is 6feet and wears a large for other shirts and jackets.

Perfect holiday gift for my dad

My dad loves his Patagonia vest that I thought it would be perfect to buy him another one.

Great sweater vest

I have been a Patagonia customer since 1985. The vest is warm and comfortable. It is the perfect item for the constantly changing weather we get in upstate New York. I wear it for work, hiking and everything else I do. If it is like everything item, I have purchased from Patagonia it will last forever.

December 20, 2021

Best ever

Very comfortable, as I expected. Quick delivery. I will get another one soon to give as a present to my son.

Best Vest Ive Ever Owned

I heard from a friend how great Patagonia vests were and I thought, sure, might as well try it for myself. This is the best vest Ive ever purchased. Within 24 hours of having my first one, I had decided to purchase another in a different color. If youre on the fence about getting this product, go for it you wont be disappointed.

December 16, 2021

My favorite !!

Always been a big fan of the better sweater and this vest is no different. Its warm and perfect to wear over a flannel while keeping your core torso warm and comfy. Very versatile piece of gear. 5 stars !!

Excellent. Love it. Second one Ive had. Also like trade-in program. Saved $75. Towards new items. Thanks.

Elegant Casual!

Vest is a terrific alternative to down/outdoor vest. Fits well, looks sharp.

Absolutely incredible products

November 21, 2021

Great overall vest!

Ive seen this new style and material and bought one and then I liked it so much I bought another in a different color!

November 20, 2021

Not Up To Your Usual High Standards!

This vest replaces a Patagonia Synchilla vest purchased many years ago and used often when fishing, bird hunting, skiing, hiking and just plain relaxing. The old vest is in excellent condition and would not have been replaced except that the zipper has failed. The replacement vest has one unsettling error... the top of the shoulder ends do not lie ... Read Moreflat against the top of my shoulders but rather each end points slightly up! The result is a general appearance of "a cheap fit". I'll use this new vest, but will make every effort to conceal it's poor appearance and I'll look into getting the zipper replaced on my old Synchilla vest.

Response from Patagonia
November 26, 2021

We appreciate you taking the time to provide some feedback on this vest! We don't want you to settle and if you don't truly love it we're happy to help [return]( it. I also want to point you towards the [Men's Classic Synchilla Fleece Vest]( as it seems it may fit your needs a little better!

November 19, 2021

Warmer than expected!

Nice fitting vest. I'm accustomed to wearing merino wool vests. This one is surprisingly warm. 165lb.

November 17, 2021

Best vest on the market

10/10 would recommend as both a casual fleece as well as a solid piece of outdoor gear. Fit is true to size. I am already looking at other colors!

November 16, 2021

Perfect for Fall days

I bought this for my son because he loves Patagonia's Better Sweaters. And now he loves this, too!

November 16, 2021

Not bulky

This vest is one of my favorite items to wear. It keeps me warm when I need a little extra warmth but is not bulky.

November 14, 2021

Great color/ Pills really quickly

I love most of the technical aspects of the garment, but after one wash, it shrunk from an xl to l and pills all over the place. Not Patagonias usual quality.

Response from Patagonia
December 2, 2021

Hello Oscar! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear that the sweater has started to pill after such little time. We typically suggest washing the sweater on warm and air drying to prevent pilling. In addition, there is a tool called a sweater stone which is really good for removing pilling which has already occurred. You could definitely give that a try, but if the pilling seems pretty severe you're welcome to [return]( this under warranty.

November 11, 2021

Go to

This is my go to vest for fall, winter and spring in KY.

November 4, 2021

Casual Style

Works well with jeans and Tee as well as casual slacks and button down

November 3, 2021

Well made product - fits weird.

I tried both the L and XL. Both fit very strange around the arms and side. The arm holes were gappy and there was too much fabric on the sides. Im not that thin and it still looked baggy.

Response from Patagonia
November 11, 2021

Hey Michael, thank you for the review on the Better Sweater Fleece Vest. We're sorry to hear the fit didn't work for you. We recommend trying out another vest, the [Men's Classic Synchilla Fleece Vest]( would be a great option!

October 26, 2021

Very warm actually was surprised

Went with a large want to layer underneath the medium would have worked but went with large very happy with that feet is extremely warm

October 26, 2021

True to size

I am 5,4 and 185 pounds and this vest fits me perfectly. It is not too tight but also fitted the right way so I do not feel any bagginess. I live in Texas and this is a great piece to wear for the fall/winter season because it is a flexible one but also warm and comfortable.

October 25, 2021

Perfect Office Wear

A very comfortable and warm vest. I wear it in the office every day. Good quality and perfect fit.

October 19, 2021

Perfect for my needs

I live in So. Cal and I love wearing my better sweater vest with shorts and long sleeve t shirts

October 13, 2021

Solid vest

I needed a standard black vest to wear for work at school. Fit is good! I'm 6ft and skinny - medium is just right right. Pro-tip - if you have a dog that sheds, this vest does not pick up and hold the hair like my other traditional fleece vests.

September 28, 2021

Fits perfectly, perfect temp.

Got this for casual wear and its great. Even after a wash, still fits perfectly and is just right temperature between inside and stepping out.

September 26, 2021

Great vest!!

I bought this vest for my sons birthday. I believe he really liked it!

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

July 6, 2021

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.

June 24, 2021

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.

June 16, 2021

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.

April 23, 2021

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](

April 17, 2021

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.

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.

Too small

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...

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.

Nice color and warmth

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

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.

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.

Review Title Required

This was purchased for me as a gift. I really like it. Ill use it for doing yard work and woodworking when Im chilly and need some warmth, but dont need my arms constricted.

Very nice

The only thin I would add are the little ribbon pull tabs for the zippers that you include on some of your other products. They make for easier use with gloves on. Do you sell those in a pack separately? Id love that. RSVP

Fantastic sweater vest

This vest is replacing a no name brand I found at a local retail store. I've had the other one for at least 4 year's now and definitely needed replacement. The problem was that brand had discontinued making this vest. Patagonia to the rescue. I live my new vest and feel good about the environmental impact. Part of my work includes being o... Read Moreut in the field and with mobile work applications on my phone I needed to more than ever have easy access. I have a rugged case and belt clip due to the nature of my work but accessing my phone was a bit difficult due to the fit of the vest. Solution; I took my vest to a seamstress and she added a 6" zipper down the right side of the vest. Now accessing my phone in the field is super easy. Thanks for the great product. I will definitely be forever customer.

Great Product!

I recently ordered a Better Sweater vest to go with several other Better Sweater products I own. This product line is affordable and stylish. I get compliments every time I wear this vest. I have found the line to have good warmth as well. I have been a Patagonia customer for over 35 years.

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.

Go-to workday vest

My office can get a bit cold and this vest looks great with a collared shirt, so its all win. The material and fit is great, if youre looking for a versatile vest, this is your one.

Fleece Material More Style Than Warm

This is the third Patagonia fleece vest I have purchased in the last 10 years. The attention to detail in and quality of this latest version was missing. I loved the previous vests. The neck of the vest is no longer constructed of fleece. I miss the nice warm feeling of the fleece on the back of my neck. The cut of the latest vest is more Athletic ... Read More- limiting my ability to wear a sweater under the vest. This vest appears to be more designed for fashion than providing a warm, practical vest that you can wear and enjoy for years. Bring no back the previous more fluffy, richer feeling fleece. Also, add inside pockets to allow us to carry additional things.

Perfect everyday!

Perfect vest for all seasons. I was traveling for work without the right cold-weather gear and bought a second Better Sweater Vest. Now, I have one permanently packed for the stream and one for the other 50% of my time.

Perfect but runs small

The vest is amazing! Its perfect! But it runs small. I had my sister try it on and fits her good. Shes 53. Will be returning this item. Its a shame

High Quality and Good Value

This vest is functional and looks good. It runs a wee bit big but fits well over a sweater or thick shirt. It is well worth the price.

My Favorite Vest in My Favorite Color

Purple, slim fit, slightly heathered vest looks great and is warm but not too warm. Perfect for temps in the mid 50's - mid 60's and great for layering, as well. I normally wait for Web Specials but when I saw this vest in purple I snapped in up in a jiffy! I already had the blue which is slightly heathered, too. Highly recommended like a...

As advertised.

The vest is everything as advertised. Fits at the shoulders and long enough to cover my lower back and more. As a senior citizen with RA I find the zipper is easy to use.

So Comfy

This vest is so conformable and really is true to the size. I am able to wear it everywhere that I go and it's super warm. Very happy with overall quality, production and appearance!! I may have to buy another color....

Very comfortable and stylish

I have four colors in this product and wear it every day in the colder seasons.

All purpose

Great all purpose vest for work or casual wear and even the outdoors. Very versatile with multiple uses and the ability to dress it up or down. Well worth the price.

The fabric weight and the fit were exactly what I was looking for.
