Patagonia Women's Lightweight Better Sweater® Shelled Jacket

September 21, 2021

Super Nice

Nice jacket, runs a tad bit small but overall it is exactly what I was looking for.

Looks better online than in person

In concept, this jacket looked awesome - I loved the color, the combination of the shell and the fleece, and the full zip-up. When I received it in the mail, I saw what others meant about it looking "boxy". I also felt like the jacket looked old. I plan on returning it soon.

Out Out

As a petite person, finding the right fit from Patagonia can be challenging. This jacket was a score! The jacket is slightly shorter than usual so the length is great for my petite frame. My usual S fits me without feeling too snug.

Super warm!

I love this jacket! Its made well, washes nicely and is super warm! Perfect for spring hiking and staying warm when a down layer isnt needed! 5 stars.

Perfect extra warm layer for colder ski days

I specifically purchased this for super warm 2nd or 3rd layer on those framing ski days. Fits great on my petite frame, including the sleeves. I will also wear in on cool days by itself.

Great fit

i first ordered a Medium size, and have to exchange it with a Small size, which was really easy and a quick process, and it is a perfect fit for me, thanks Patagonia team. Happy customer.

Perfect fit IMO if you size up!

Im in between sizes and I sized up to M. It has the perfect fit & cut in my opinion. Im 57 and it hits at the top of my hips. Very flattering and looks expensive : great quality. My husband tells me he loves the sweater every time I wear it.

A Gem

Saw this in the store, tried it on, loved it, but had to wait for a sale! Thankfully that day had arrived. Beautiful colors go well with my blonde hair. (I got the pumice one).

I love this jacket & receive so many compliments! Im 54 and wear a small. It fits true to size. Its my go to jacket when I run a quick errand.

Weird Fit

The fit is weird between the arms and chest. The arms are small too. They don't reach the wrists completely. It feels loose at the torso and tight at the same time restricting proper arm movement. Disappointed.

I sometimes struggle with Pategonia tops because Im smaller on top and am bigger on bottom (wide hips) and feel that Im between a medium and large but the medium in this one is perfect. Love that its a bit of a shorter cut - very modern. More beautiful in person for sure!

Weird fit

I was so excited to try this one on because of the cute colors! However, the fit just did not work for me. I am a petite person and the XS was too big and boxy in the torso. It also hit me at a weird spot around my neck. Would love to see a slimmer version.

Love the jacket, but runs small

I love, love, love this jacket!! It's perfect for a spring jacket. The only thing is, it runs small. I would recommend this jacket but would recommend a size up from your normal size.

Weird fit

Love the style of this jacket and the material is so comfortable. The sizing was very odd, however. Very baggy throughout torso, and very short sleeves.

Does not fit like better sweater

I loved the color of this jacket, and hoped that it would be a sturdier version of the better sweater. However, comparing M to M, this piece is shorter (hem and sleeves) and boxier, almost like a boxer jacket. Being tall, this does not work for me. For someone shorter, could be cute.
