Just what I was looking for.
I ordered this pullover primarily for hiking and climbing. I get cold pretty easily and usually need an additional layer underneath my puffy. It's slim-fitting, so on really cold days, I can still climb with it on. I like the zippered pouch-style pocket. One thing that would be nice is a top side pocket (similar to the R1) for cell phones or o... Read Morether small items. It is slim, and does take a little effort to take off, but very flattering on. I'm also a huge fan of the Better Sweater series, so this jacket met all of my needs.
Warm great fit have two others
I bought this for my daughter she has many Patagonia products and loves them. I'm in my 60s and have been a customer with Patagonia for 35yrs love the style and durability of all products customer service is excellent, friends comment on my jacket's and sweaters good looking gear.
Woolly Blue in XS
This is very pretty and soft, but it does not keep me warm. Its called light weight for a reason because its very thin. I have to layer a tee shirt or turtleneck underneath for warmth. When its very cold, I wear it under a coat. I normally wear a Petite XS and this fits me just right in the body meaning not tight but not loose either. The sleeves a... Read Morere a little bit long, but its not too much. Woolly Blue is a medium blue thats not light or dark. Overall, this is best worn as a layering piece for me. That being said, I would buy it again.
Runs Small, Very Cute
I was given this pullover as a gift for serving on a committee. I LOVE it and the "woolly blue" is prettier in person - but it DEFINITELY runs small. I ordered a medium and I am usually a small/sometimes medium in tops. The medium fits but there's no wiggle room. So if you're looking for something fitted just to wear a tank top ...

Customer service for the return on this gift with no gift receipt was absolutely fabulous.
A Great Option to the (other) Better Sweater
When I first got it I was taken back by the feel of the fabric - sort of stiff - so much so that I almost sent it back but loved the color too much to part with it. Luckily it soften as I washed and wore it. I wear it to work (I work retail - very casual) and it's a lovely piece with pants and a t-shirt. I wore it all last Spring and suspect I... Read More will wear it throughout this coming winter too. I bought a medium and I am usually a small (Better Sweater and all Patagonia shirts I am a Small) - really glad I went up to medium which is a better fit for me (I am not flat chested). It is NOT too big by any means. As I mentioned, it is lighter than the original Better Sweater which makes it much more versatile in my book.
I’m 5’8” 140lbs, small framed and wear a medium. Sweater was tight on me and I’m small up top. No room for anything under it so not good for layering. Blue color very pretty, nice buttons, material was stiff and not soft so I did not exchange. They were out of large anyway. Customer service for return amazing!
We're sorry this didn't work out and we're glad that we were able to assist you with your return. Thanks for your feedback!

I love this product! The small is more of a slim fit on me-perfect for a day out running errands.

Measurements don't match product
Even though I wear a medium in Patagonia tops, after looking at the measurements and reading reviews, I decided to go with a large.

I purchased this sweater in size Medium and it fits me really well, slightly loose so I can layer, but not too big. I'm 5'4", 140 lbs. The sleeves are a little too long, so I fold them over once.

Read More it were less bright and more muted, but it's still nice. I really like the "Regular Fit" style. I have previously purchased the "Performance Better Sweater Hoodie" in a size M, and it's very slim around the arms, difficult to layer anything other than a thin top. This regular fit is roomy, but not overly big or slouchy and fits better around the arms, shoulders and waist.
I love this Better Sweater! It fits nicely, and looks a little more put together than my worn out old pullovers. It's really warm for how lightweight it is. I haven't had any issues with pilling, etc. The XS is a perfect fit for me---it's not "tight" and also doesn't look loose / too big. It's a flattering cut for...

Great Sweater, Warm!
Warm enough to wear as a single outer layer over shortsleeves in 50-60 deg weather. I’m typically a small in tops but after reading the reviews, decided to get a medium and am glad I did.

Finally a pullover with pockets!
When this style first came out I was so excited, finally a better sweater pullover with pockets! And snaps instead of zippers! However the color choices have been terrible.

Size up if you want armpit room. Great product!!!
I bought a size small at first, and found that it was tight on my armpits. And personally, I also prefer my hoodies/sweaters to cover my butt a little, to which the size small only went up to my lower back. When I re-orded this product in a size M, I bsolutly loved it! Very comfortable for layering, and very warm.
Love, Love, don’t Love the Lightweight Better Sweater
The Marsupial Lightweight Better Sweater is one of my VERY favorite clothing items. I absolutely love its style (especially the pouch pocket) and lightweight warmth. I want one in every color, but Patagonia isn’t kidding about the fabric’s “tendency” to pill. It DOES, and that is a real negative. I’ve had two Marsupials and even with extreme care (...

Finally,a Better Sweater I can pack
I like to travel as light as I can,and now,at last,I can pack a Better Sweater and not kick myself for all the room it eats up. And hallelujah for a marsupial pocket!

I'll never buy a better sweater again,I love these so much. They fit everything I'm looking for -- not too long in the torso or the sleeves,have zippers for the pocket,don't have the chest pocket that's not very useful,comes in beautiful colors,and fits *perfectly* -- so I will probably purchase a second one!
Love this fleece
I have the better sweater in grey and I wear it all the time. I love the pockets and the button up collar- it's a really warm fleece. I am 5'3" and 120 pounds and I do think it runs a little large.

I like the pockets!
I got this as a gift for Christmas. I have a couple 1/4 zip better sweaters and I love them,just wish they had pockets.

Haven't taken it off
I didn't think I could love something more than my better sweater but here it is. It's the new thing I can't take off.

A great addition to the Better Sweater line
I ordered the black,small and am 5'5 132# and it's still a little baggier than I'd like,but I know the extra small wouldn't have been the right fit.

Zippered pockets FTW
I have multiple Patagonia pullovers but this one is becoming a favorite. The front pocket with zippers is what sets this one apart.
