My daily go-to
I absolutely love this pullover. Although it pills a bit at the sleeves, it's so comfortable that I bought three of them! I have one medium and two large, and the large fits perfectly for me. I love my clothing a little loose, so the medium felt a bit tight but definitely still wearable for my size/height.
Comfy but lacking in quality
Warm and retro-stylish with an area for improvement; the piping around the seams looks threadbare, like the garment is losing its pile. You can actually see in some of the pictures when you zoom in. At the price point I would expect near-perfection with some small caveats. I don't think anyone expects to really be taken seriously while wearing... Read More fleece, so it's forgivable, but it's something I'll pay attention to as long as I own the garment. I didn't return, but I wanted to like it more.
Pros = looks cool af Cons = 0 Great for lounging around or use as second layer. Wind gets thru, but thats not why I bought. Can withstand SoCal winter. Have used it outdoors and sleeping. Has Sherpa-feel outside and generous pocket/hand warmer. Fabric stretches a bit so you can move around. Def a good purchase
Hi, Patagonia is a great brand and I have a lot of their Tops (12) and bottom (Baggies). I love them, but even with the new button design, the product, of which I bought 2, is very ratty looking and looks very old after just a few months!

Looks nice, fits well, liked the buttons and collar. Poor insulator even under a wind breaker.

Hi Ed, we're very sorry to hear that the Shearling Fleece Button Pullover is meeting your needs regarding warmth. If you're looking for a warmer fleece, we suggest checking out our line of [Better Sweaters](https://www.patagonia.com/search/?q=better+sweater&lang=en_US).
The collar style was a dealbreaker
I was looking for a warm fleece quarter zip; something warmer than a Better Sweater (although I do like the look of those). The shearling was warm and comfortable and I enjoyed the kangaroo pocket. I ordered it online. Once I tried it on, I realized that the collar style was not attractive to me. The Synchilla ended up being a better choice.
I love this. It's the perfect size and the pockets are a great addition. It's soft and roomy, and goes with everything. I didn't realize it was navy on the trim until I got outside in the sunlight - the lighting inside the store isn't the greatest. Still, it's great.
Runs loose and a bit stretch already
I love the brand and I am a loyal customer but this jacket is not what I expected. It is mainly on the waist, that already is seems to be a bit stretch out. Also the chest is a weird fit.

Hello Fernando, thank you for the review. We're sorry to hear that this fleece has been a disappointment overall. You're welcome to send it back for a refund or merchandise credit. For other options in men's fleece, [click here](https://www.patagonia.com/shop/mens-fleece).
This fleece is relatively light
This fleece is relatively light weight compared to others I've tried but that was the point. Ironically, it actually weighs more because of the knit cuffs and bottom hem that add overall weight and do a good job holding warmth in (just as the specs say). It also has real pockets, which is great. In retrospect Id like to have had a zip closure ... Read Morerather than the buttons what are sorta clunky. (Id also appreciate a Comment box that would take appostrophes!) All in all, a good purchase.
Warm but too wide and baggy compared to length
While I liked the color of the brown and navy, the pockets really ruin the overall fit of the pullover. It would look so much more flattering and hang less awkwardly and baggy on you if the lower torso where the pockets are was instead a little snugger. I have a bit of a gut and even for me it was too wide on me and could've been longer too. Y... Read Moreou really need minimum 2 layers under it for it to fit normally, and at that point I'd just wear a jacket.
Cozy and retro
One of my favorite casual layers for around town, in the house, or under my ski jacket. Warm, soft, and cool retro style. Im 5 foot 9, 165-175 lbs (muscular build- 42 chest, 31 waist) and the size L fits perfectly. The older model was slightly loose at the waist but this newer model seems slightly more fitted which I like. Love the pink accents ins... Read Moreide the collar on the blue/teal colorway. Might get a third of this fleece next time they hit a sale :)
I was in search of something a little more elevated than the snap T but just as comfortable. Warm, roomy but looks good if you need to bust it out at the office. Pockets are classic hoody pockets so it weights down right in the middle, could be cool if next version has more of a jacket style pockets to balance out the weight.
Not up to Patagonias usual quality standard
Found the fabric too thin and not the usual Patagonia quality, especially at this price point. Sadly it felt cheap and flimsy. Returned.

Hi Jennifer, thank you for submitting this feedback, and for returning a pullover that wasn't going to make you happy. We're sorry it was disappointing! You might prefer one of our beefier fleeces, like the Retro Pile line. Please give us a call if we can help!
Tried this on in the Boulder CO super store. I have a dozen or so fleece tops and such from Patagonia, and I'm typically perfect for their medium size (6'1", 170 pounds, 34" arms. Even the large felt a bit constrained in my shoulders, so this doesn't work for me. Only reason for the 4 stars is that it's fit seems very ...

Very disappointed since I love pullover fleeces with pockets and was so ready to buy this, but this still looked to be an outstanding garment!
Preparing for winter
Winter mountaineering and hiking are a thing of the past for me. but dealing with mild winter conditions outdoors and lower temp settings indoors give me pause so I decided to try the Shearling fleece pullover. I now have three of them. Comfortable and toasty, they are perfect for my needs. My only concern, and time will tell, is whether or not the... Read More garment will develop piling around the collar.

Loved It, But Had to Return It
Instantly wanted this when I saw it. The colors are perfect - especially the wine and navy grosgrain ribbon accents - but even before I bought it, I was worried there might be a fit issue with the side pockets. As with many garments like this, the side pockets 'pouf out,' and with the knit navy trim on the oatmeal background, it made my a... Read Morebdomen look distended. Patagonia, please let me know if you ever make this exact same style pullover without the side pockets, and I will gladly buy it. But with regret, this one wasn't for me.
I bought this item at the Freeport, Maine store so I could try it on. I found that in the store, the quantity of mens items were more plentiful and less expensive. This fleece pullover fits me perfectly. I normally wear a women's large in a Patagonia fleece pullover. The quality is top notch and I love the front pocket that will keep my hands ...

I dont like the collar. It lays flat. Model photos show a collar that stays up.just looks completely different than photos.

My New "Go-To" Fleece
I own four different Patagonia fleece pull-overs, but this 1/4-button pull-over with the marsupial pocket (nice feature) looks to be my new go-to Fall and Winter garment. It already looks awesome with just a T-shirt underneath for both my collar-need work dress requirement and cool-looking casual wear - real easy to pull on and off - and is just th... Read Moree right weight and soft feel. GREAT job, Patagonia !
perfect for chilly california mornings
This thing is so cozy, and very retro-stylish. Im 5 foot 9 and weigh around 170-180 pounds (muscular build) and the L fits perfectly. Just got it and have worn it casually for the last couple days, but excited to use this before morning surf sessions and for a snow layer.
Womens version has a far better fit
Bought this for my husband The waist band, buttons & pockets made it a very snug fit. The womens style fits far better w/out the waist band etc

Thank you for sharing this review, Becca. We're sorry to hear that fit didn't work for him! Please let us know if we can help at all with that return.
Soft and comfortable
Love this piece. I throw it on and wear it all day, in and out of doors. Made of a unique stretch material great for movements such as physical work and fly casting. Layers well under a shell, toasty warm and lightweight. Exchanged a large for a medium and it's a better fit.
Soft and comfortable
Great piece. I can wear it out on the boat guiding or in the office. Always love the pile garments - warm in the wind with minimal layers underneath. Sholders are too broad for a medium to be comfortable so I usually have to size up for more room and it fits perfectly.
Checks All the Boxes
This fleece offers everything I wanted -- oatmeal color, attractive trim, large buttons, high neck coverage, warm, lightweight, and quality fabric. As important, I enjoy buying from an organization that walks their talk and places integrity and social values front & center, Well played!
At least pictures are pretty
I've had snap Tees for years and loved them. I thought this would be the similar but with an updated look. WRONG! Patagonia usually hits it out of the park. For me this was a strike out. I ordered a large but it just seemed too tight in the shoulders and I could not button it up. I reordered an XL and it did give me much better movement howeve... Read Morer the neck was still too tight. I think having the buttons offset was not a good idea. What really was a deal killer for me was the 'elastic' waistband. It was poorly constructed, stretched out and absolutely non functioning. Looked and felt horrid. To spend that much money I expected more you you guys.... but hey, nobody's perfect. But you are usually are pretty damn close.
