Love it

I wear this thing all the time here just south of the Bay Area. To yoga, from yoga, after work, on the way to work, basically any time I dont have to be in work or workout clothes. It was oversized so I brought back for a Small (Im usually medium) and it fits perfectly.

Great transition item

Love this item. Its not bulky but is warm during transition seasons. Loose fit which means being able to wear heavier sweaters if necessary.

April 20, 2023

Absolutely Perfect!

I love this! The microdini fleece hoodie is warm and breathable! Great stretch for all those climbing/hiking needs! Sleeves run a little short (by most *casual standards), but honestly Im glad they do! -It works great to show my expedition watch thats needed for awareness out in the wild. Highly recommend this hoodie!

Already pilling from first wear

I was really excited to get this jacket, since I love the retro style and the light-to-mid weight fleece. When I took it off after wearing it for some errands I noticed pilling on the back and realized it had shed all over my bag. Very disappointing. It is still comfortable and functional, but I dont have faith it will be durable now.

We're sorry to hear about the fabric issue in your new fleece hoody. For [product care](, we recommend turning the fleece inside out, close all zippers, machine wash, gentle cycle in cool water with a mild detergent, no bleach and no fabric softener. Hang or lay flat to air dry naturally and avoid the dryer all together. If dryer is used, select a low heat setting and remove items as soon as they are dry, avoiding the use of a fabric softening dryer sheet. If this doesn't alleviate the fabric issue, please contact our Customer Service team. We'll be happy to help!

Excessive shedding

Bought this off the Worn Ware Patagonia site... the shedding is a huge let down. It gets everywhere, seat belt, backpack, my hair (from the hood), my clothing, chairs at home.

The colors are beautiful!

This was a bonus purchase and I love it because it has a hood and the colors stand out. I must state that Patagonia is worth the wait and cost !

I want to love this hoody, but one of my biggest issues with it, is that it sheds so much. I've had it for a couple of months now and just cant seem to get rid of the fuzz.

Hi Claudia, new fleeces do have a tendency to shed, but washing your gear can help to alleviate this issue. To wash, turn your fleece inside out, and wash it on the gentle cycle with cool water and a mild detergent. Then machine dry on a low to no heat setting, or air dry.

Love but sheds

I love the colors of my new jacket. Keep in mind it is a light jacket, perfect for spring, doesn't shield against wind at all. I like my jackets roomy so I opted for a large and its perfect.

I love it. Its kinda 90s colors which I love. Its slightly large; Im in between a medium and a large. Its cozy though. Would absolutely recommend.

Warm and Super Soft

This fleece is super soft, and comfortable. This jacket is great for all day at work, or going out to run errands, or dinner. The colors look even better in person.

Shedding Fleece

I really like the way this garment fits and I loved the light blue color, but I've washed and dried it twice now and it shed fleece particles all over the shirt I was wearing under it and my car when I've worn it and covered my seatbelt. The zipper is also very hard to move and I'm not happy with this product.

Sizing is confusing

I am 5'3, between sizes 10-12. The Fit Finder on the product page recommended I get size XL. Since this is my first time ordering Patagonia, I followed the recommendation but unfortunately the sweater is much too big. I would love to exchange for a M or L but those sizes are now sold out. I personally don't enjoy the super oversized look ... Read Moreand doubt I will end up wearing this at all.

Hi Daisy, thank you for this feedback on the sizing app. We're sorry it was off the mark for you! It does sound like a Medium would be better for you. Please feel free to [return]( this hoody if you wish.

A little thin

I loved the color on this mauve/pink jacket and the fleece was very soft. However it was definitely thinner/lighter than what I was looking for. It seems like a great jacket, just be aware that it isn't super thick so it may not be best for very cold temps.

January 29, 2023

Live in it

I purchased this thinking it would maybe be a good zip up around the house. I fell in love with it the first wear, super soft and comfortable. Gives great warmth, and the fit is perfect! Just like how you expect it to fit. I have worn it lounging, hiking, and running. Also already recommended to a few people :)

Love the jacket but the one I ordered was a little too bright. Wish they had beige or navy black. Neutral colors a mauve color is OK. Overall the jacket is really nice. I will probably order it later I will go on sale.

perfect amount of warmth while still being breathable

I got this in a medium, small definitely would fit fine, I sized it up so I could fit layers underneath. I run very warm when hiking but was still able to wear this on my 9-mile hike the other day without getting too hot as it was breathable enough to let some heat out. The fleece is so cozy and I love the cut of the jacket! If you are looking for ...

Runs large, thin fabric

Too big, super thin fabric, and not very warm (you'll definitely have to wear a coat over this for chilly weather). I usually love the quality of patagonia products but the quality of this jacket does not justify the price tag.

Hi Mercedez! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear about the disappointment with the fabric. The Microdini isn't the warmest fleece we offer, and would require another layer in colder temperatures. If you're interested in a warmer option we'd suggest our [Women's Classic Retro-X Jacket]( Your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](

Beautiful but heavy microplastic shedding

Delightful workmanship and colors. This was my first fleece ever. I'd like to get into hiking and figured if I must get a fleece, then from you guys (for quality and ethics). My sole reason for return was the intense shedding of fibers. Trying it on, I wore a smooth cotton longsleeve that ended up covered all over in shiny plastic fibers. I ha... Read Mored also purchased the Guppyfriend bag from you, so I washed my cotton shirt in it but the threads stayed attached to the shirt after the wash - it looks exactly as before I washed it. I don't know what to do with this shirt now - I don't have a dryer, and they are not supposed to be used for avoiding microplastics anyway. I know the shedding is supposed to decrease after first wash but it will increase again as the garment ages. Patagonia, your own microplastics study was 6.5 years ago, and your last update online over 4 years ago. When are you going to discontinue making plastic fleece garments? Are plant-waxes a possibility? Could you at least print a warning on product pages and add washing instructions that you suggest in your "An Update on Microfiber Pollution" article? I don't understand the disparity between what is known and what is done. Not scolding, just really sad. :_/

Hello Christine, thank you for your review. We understand why the shedding would be a frustrating experience and we've notified our product team of your feedback so we could look into the problem. Thank you for sending the hoody back! Our material development team is working to identify fiber types and construction techniques that minimize shedding. In Spring 2020, 75 percent of all Patagonia’s synthetic materials were derived from recycled materials, and it's only gone up since then. By 2025, our goal is to use only renewable or recycled materials. While we could eliminate all fleece from our line, our products would lack performance in the outdoors. Note that we have also slowly begun to reintroduce wool, hemp and wood fiber throughout the line whenever possible. To tackle this challenge, our consumption behavior needs to change radically; new materials that don’t shed need to be developed; washing machines need to include filters to capture fibers; and waste treatment plants need to be updated. In short, this is no small feat, and it's still very much in progress for Patagonia as a company. You mentioned reading one of our articles about this, but just in case we'll include [this]( to provide you with added information. Thank you for holding us accountable! If you need help picking a different fleece, don't hesitate to reach out, we'd be happy to narrow down the options for you.

So cute!

Love a slightly retro style cutie hoodie. Nice fit as it is not too long and have been having trouble lately with Patagonia styles being too tight in the hips (I'm pear shaped). A lighter jacket so not for the dead of winter but a good fall style, like that it is water repellent. Wish the pockets had zips.

November 12, 2022

Love style

Love the style / color with the blue color way. I do wish it was a little heavier - but it will work quite well on cool fall days :)

October 26, 2022

Very cute!

Great colors and quality. This product does run small and had to size up. I wear a medium in everything Patagonia, and had to go up to a large. Fits better as a layer over clothes as well. Love it!!

Great jacket. Its roomy, warm, and can be worn as an insulating layer or as a jacket hoodie.

My go-to commute and lounging jacket

First off, I LOVE the colors of this jacket. I am a huge fan of color blocking and bright color pops, so I was really excited to see this style had what I wanted.

So Comfy!

This combo of the MicroD and Houdini is warm and cozy and perfect for walking the dog on a crisp Fall day. I love the fabric, but the sizing is a little off.

Fun to Wear!

I love all of the colors and it makes me happy when I wear my Microdini! It super soft and can easily be worn during the fall and winter here on the east coast especially since it has a hoody.

Cozy and cute

If you love neutrals and want something cozy and cute to wear in the fall or on chilly days order this sweatshirt in the beige! Fits great too.

Cute and cuddly

I love the bright pops of color and snuggly soft microfiber fleece. I normally wear an XS and ordered my normal size. It fits well everywhere except the sleeves, which I wish were 2-3" longer since they leave about 3" of my wrists exposed.
