Pilling and used look

I purchased this online so did not see what the material was like beforehand. I liked the idea of recycled material but unfortunately it does not look great in-person. The first comment I received the first time I wore it was- “Isn’t it time to buy a new jacket? How long have you worn that for that it’s shed so bad?” And after two washes, the pilli... Read Moreng has started. I’ve already stopped wearing this jacket.

Love it but hate the pilling

I love this coat so much as it is very comfortable, stylish, and fitting all at the same time but the pilling on the arms gets a little out of control at times.

Hi Kristin, to help with the pilling, we'd recommend taking a sweater stone to your fleece. You can find care instructions for pilling on our Worn Wear site,

Great Fit but too thin

I bought this for my wife, she loves how the sweater fits her contour wise. We tried this sweater as we loved the " better sweaters" but she wanted pockets. The sleeves and bottom of the sweater tighten to give it a very nice look but the sweater itself is too thin, you can see through it when you hold it up. It is way too thin and the wi... Read Morend pierces it easily. To was 55 degrees here and the sweater was cold. We love Patagonia and she has the better sweater and jacket etc. but this sweater just didn't cut it.

Don’t hesitate on adding this to your closet! It is the perfect weight for daily wear in a chilly office or 40-50 degree outdoor weather. Fits great-I’m going to consider adding another color

Christmas gift

Thinner than expected. I bought it on sale. Would not have paid FULL PRICE!! Let’s see if my Daughter likes.

Love it!

This fleece jacket fit me perfectly and is warm and cozy. I like that is 50% (?) recycled wool...I’m Sure I will have this jacket for many years. I rarely buy new clothes ( prefer to shop Thrift stores for cost saving and to help our planet) so I am pleased this jacket fit so well -since I bought it without trying it on. The phone customer service ... Read Morewhen I was trying to decide which size to purchase was excellent.

Warm and comfortable

First patagonia purchase and I'm super pleased with the comfort and warmth this provides.

December 15, 2019

Amazing jacket, great fit.

My only star detractor is because it is a bit itchy.

December 10, 2019

So cozy and cute!

I love it! I keeps me decently warm, and I love the bomber-type fit (fitted on hips and wrists). It looks more stylish than the average Patagonia jacket - kinda like Houston baddie meets NorCal (not saying this is autobiographical but...). Looks cute with leggings as it's own top or over something as a layer, or under something thicker as a la... Read Moreyer. Get it.

Love it

This Jacket is perfect for the Northwest chilly winter and for inside too. Very warm and lightweight at the same time

Pills quickly, but alas, to be expected of poly fleece. Nothing a sweater shaver can’t remedy👍

December 4, 2019

Warm and Cozy!

I am very much enjoying this snuggly piece. I live in NYC so layering is a must with all the walking, crowded subways etc. I'm usually a medium and bought a medium and fits me like a glove. I get a lot of compliments on it for being and looking so cozy as well. Thank you Patagonia!

December 3, 2019

Great Light Jacket

This is a great coat! Love the bomber style, and the ox color. Since it's wool it's not as soft as their classic fleeces, but after wearing for a couple days I find it incredibly comfortable. It's not windproof, but makes a great layering piece or jacket in mild weather. Definitely happy with the purchase.

Not holding up

I’ve worn 3x and it’s pilling badly. Very disappointed

Response from Patagonia
December 23, 2019

Hello Kline. We're sorry about the pilling issues you're having with your fleece. To prevent pilling, we recommend washing it either by hand in cool to cold water, or separately in your washing machine on the gentle cycle. It's best to lay it flat to dry rather than place it in the dryer where the fabric can easily get upbraided. To remove pilling that has already occurred, a sweater shaver or sweater stone is an excellent tool and can help the garment look brand new again.  Of course, if you are not pleased with the performance of your fleece, you are absolutely welcome to send it in for a warranty returns evaluation under our Ironclad Guarantee.

Never a disappointment!

Had my eye on this jacket for a while, so when it went on sale I had to bite! Great fit, great quality! I love it!

December 3, 2019

Nice fit, warm. But still

Nice fit, warm. But still with the ‘itchy’ wool feels. Using it as my in-house cardigan a la Mr Rogers

Short people matter too!

I love Patagonia, the company, your values, and your stuff. I usually buy it at REI because that is a great company too. But this was a bargain I thought I couldn’t pass up. Unfortunately, I have yet to own my own Patagonia sweater/jacket because I am 5’1 and nothing fits me, in length especially. This jacket fell well below my hips (unflattering a... Read Moret best), but from the pictures it looked like a baseball-type jacket which I thought would be a shorter cut. Not meant to be, I do wish you made petite (or how about just Short) sizes. I also have to have your pants all shortened, and any long sleeves. I’ve got a couple of your pullovers, they all had to be shortened because I could wear them as dresses otherwise. So, I buy Patagonia for other people because you make great things, just not for me. I’ve even tried children’s sizes but unfortunately I do not have a child’s body any longer. Anyhow, that’s my two cents. I loved the fabric. But because the pockets reach to the bottom of the sweater, and it has a zipper, shortening it was impossible, so back it went. I’ll keep hoping....but no more ordering by mail.

Hi Tami. We're sorry to hear this was too long. We sadly aren't offering our items in petite sizing as of yet, but we hear you and definitely understand how frustrating this is. Our designs are constantly being revised, and customer's feedback is one of the contributing factors to these changes. We hope that we won't disappoint you in the future.

too thin

i like the color and the style, and fits me well but this jacket is pretty thin, good for weather in high 60s or 70s. After few wear, I can see the pilings, for the price the quality is not good enough...

December 2, 2019

Happy with my purchase

This is my first Patagonia jacket. It's beautiful, practical and fits perfectly. Thanks for the quality of your product.

December 2, 2019

A huge disappointment

The jacket is extremely thin and the material on the inside is so itchy and irritating that I wore the jacket for five minutes total before getting rid of it. It’s weight is comparable to a ten dollar fleece jacket for 15x the cost. Skip this jacket and spend your money on something more practical.

December 1, 2019

Love this jacket! I wear

Love this jacket! I wear it every morning to take my kids to school and run errands. Keeps me warm in San Diego temperatures.

Always wanted to buy your products, but never got around to it until now. This is definitely worth the money. So stylish and I can feel good wearing it. Great quality, nice shape and keeps me warm!

Hi Araceli! Thanks for your feedback. We're sorry to hear this jacket was a bit itchy! You are welcome to [return]( it if you'd like. In the meantime, we might recommend checking out the [W's Los Gatos Fleece Bomber Jacket]( This style features a very similar cut with plush high pile fleece instead of wool, so it is quite a bit softer.

Customer service was amazing and the product is delightful! Thank you.

November 25, 2019

Great jacket

It’s slightly itchy because of the wool which is expected. However, I love the neckline, warmth, and that it’s made from recycled wool.

November 25, 2019


Love this fleece. Light weight and warm

November 24, 2019

Great fit, kinda itchy

Not sure if you need to wash it first (I did not). The wool is super itchy if I don’t wear a long sleeved shirt. It’s such a great color and fit so I’m still keeping it.

November 24, 2019

Comfortable and stylish fleece

The fleece was stylish and comfortable. Perfect for mild winter or spring weather. The texture wasn't the softest or thickest just as a heads up. I got this fleece during the 50% off sale, otherwise I would've thought twice at buying at full price.

November 23, 2019

The perfect light layer!

It’s so cozy I’ve been wearing it every day. It’s warm and yet breathable and light. Great color and texture. My new favorite! The fit is perfect. I’m 5’6” 135, and I’m in a medium.

November 23, 2019

beautiful color

I really like these fleeces this is the third one that I have bought

November 22, 2019

Warm but itchy

The jacket is very warm but need to wear a long sleeve underneath due to it being itchy

November 22, 2019

Love it!

Love it!

November 22, 2019

Not as thick as I

Not as thick as I thought it would be but perfect for Houston “winters”. Beautiful jacket! Very happy with the fit and quality. I haven’t been able to wear it much since we are still in the 70s here but I did try it on with some outfits and it’s roomy enough for a sweater or sweatshirt underneath. I’m 5’6” 115lbs and the small is a good fit.

November 22, 2019

So warm and light

I'd been looking for a light sweater/jacket but that would keep me warm. I finally found it. Jacket fits perfect, it's not too heavy but most importantly it is keeping me warm. I love it!!

November 22, 2019

Great Quality for Great Price

Would purchase again with that price point. Came swiftly and the color was great.

I was really disappointed with this jacket, it was really itchy and very thin. I ended up returning it because I couldn't wear it

Perfect Jacket. Great style and wonderful materials. Could not be more pleased. Patagonia has done it again. Thanks for .making such great clothing.

Perfect for polar vortexes!

Where I live we have 5-6 months of freezing or below zero weather. This packet keeps me so warm and the best part is that its easy to move around in! I also get lots of compliments on the beautiful plum color. Thanks Patagonia for make a coat that helps keep me warm, is flattering, and fits my "curvy/athletic" build!

Wife loves it! Soft, warm and stylish.

This was my first order from Patagonia and I liked the jacket so much. I will order my next one.

A review after over a year of use

I wanted to share my thoughts on this fleece now that I've had it for some time. Overall, I am not thrilled with it and wish I returned rather than hoping it would work out. First, the material is rather thin. There is absolutely no wind protection and while I wasn't expecting much, this is virtually non existent. The material is also rat... Read Moreher itchy as many other reviewers reported and I found it to pill considerably. I have the dark gray so it blends in somewhat but it does give the fleece an overall scraggly appearance at this point. Last, and this is something that irks me every time I wear it, is that the pockets are exceptionally shallow. I can barely fit my hands in and most frustrating, I cannot fit my phone. Of course I stick it in the pocket all the time because it's convenient and habit but it falls out absolutely anytime you bend over (i.e. pick up your kid, tie your shoes, grab something on a low shelf at the grocery store, rake a few leaves, etc.) . Luckily it hasn't broken or gotten lost but it's something that bugs me each and every time I wear the fleece just further reminding me about how I should have returned it straight away. I suggest skipping this coat and choosing something else like the better sweater instead.

It keeps me warm. I normally purchase XS Patagonia Sweaters. I need to purchase S for this style and it fits well. So glad that I did not get XS.

A bit scratchy

I read the reviews before buying and yes it is a bit scratchy, once layered i don’t see it being an issue. It is a great jacket and I’m happy part of my purchase goes towards a great cause.

This is the first item from Patagonia that I have been really disappointed with. Shocked, really, that it has a Patagonia label on it. Within a few hours of wearing the fleece for the first time, it had large clumps of fleece balling up mostly on the underside of the sleeves. I have seen pilling before, but these are such huge clumps it is way beyo... Read Morend pilling. Not only does it seem that the jacket is falling apart, but the big clumps are very ugly.

Love it! It’s something different

Love it! It’s something different from the Patagonia fleece that almost everyone has. honestly I was a little worried at first that the fit wouldn’t look good but surprisingly the jacket is very flattering. It has that nice athletic old school vibe to it. It is also nice and warm. Would recommend!

October 3, 2019

So stylish

I love the collegiate look. Warm and nice oxide red color

September 23, 2019


color is great, a little smaller in the shoulder and arms if you have muscles. Bomber style jacket.. the waist didn't fall quite right on me.

September 19, 2019

This jacket fits true to

This jacket fits true to size. I'm pretty short so sleeves on jackets are usually way too long, but with the elastic part on the wrist of this jacket it makes it more comfortable, so the sleeves aren't always riding down. The warmth is about the same as the other fleece options.

August 29, 2019

Lightweight & warm

The woolyester material isn't quite as soft and inviting as the original fleece that Patagonia is known for, but it's still a comfortable jacket that serves its purpose well. As with other Patagonia supporters, the idea of recycled materials appeals to me. So, I'm willing to deal with the minor inconvenience for overall waste reducti... Read Moreon!

Close to perfect

I love wool and zip-up sweatshirts without hoods, which are hard to find. So this is just about perfect. It is warm and wooly and so cozy and comfortable and it’s washed well so far. If it just had pockets that zipped so I wouldn’t lose stuff it would be perfect. I do love it though.

My first Patagonia fleece jacket!

I've been a fan of the Better Sweater for the past year and a half, but having recently lost a lot of weight, I needed a new jacket that fit better and chose the Woolyester. I love it, it fits so great and is comfortably warm for the wet & cool spring we're having this season.

Woolyester Fleece Jacket

I love the Woolyester Fleece Jacket! Purchased it to be a quick grab jacket for cool spring mornings. Fits well and is incredibly comfortable

May 8, 2019

Great color, but not super warm

I bought this sweater to see if it would be a good layer for when I am living in a colder climate. I was looking for a substantial wool sweater that would also fit under a fall coat. This was a nice fleece, just not as hefty as I was hoping for, so I returned it.

May 8, 2019

Really wanted to love it

This is a fleece I’ve been wanting for quite some time. It looked like a very warm wool fleece that can be worn any season, especially in the spring and fall. I’ve worn it a few times and it is very, very thin. You can feel the wind right through it. The material on the fleece also comes off very easily. I feel like in a year, I will have some gaps...

Itchy sweater

I wanted to love this sweater, the fit is comfy and cozy. But the material was thinner than I expected, and the second I put it on, the wool was so itchy against my neck and arms. Will have to return this, unfortunately.

Wanted to love it but it was a bit short - would creep up. It also shed in the wash, and the fabric started to look quite thin. Returned it, ultimately.

Timeless, classic, and cozy

The texture and slight pattern in the fleece is very unique and the contrasting cuffs on the oatmeal heather look SO sharp. This is the easiest sweater to throw on as an extra layer under a down jacket for cold days, at work when the heater's not so great, or being super cozy aprés-ski. The light oatmeal color makes it an easy transition piece... Read More to spring as well. I'll definitely wear and love this for years!

Snuggy and warm. Perfect for petites!

I turned in my old fleece to Worn Wear and decided to upgrade to this new style. Overall, i love it and will wear it eveywhere! Like the other reviewer stated, this is lighter weight material than some similar Patagonia styles, but in my opinion it provides just as much warmth. I love the knit detailing on the sleeves and waist which adds stretch! ... Read MoreAs for size, I am 5'0 and curvy. For the most part, Patagonia does not design clothes to fit my body type but I love the quality of the brand and what it stands for, so I make due even it means having sleeves altered on items that are specifically designed for women with long, climbing arms. I am in between a medium and large for most Patagonia reg tops and got this in a large because I wanted to have the option to put a bulkt sweater underneath. It is plenty large (almost overized)! I have a short torso and the medium wasnt going to be long enough for wearing to work without me feeling self conscious about my skin or undergarmets showing... Thus, I opted for the additional inch or so in length on the large. The sleeves on the medium fit perfectly, but I'm okay with the length on the large. Summary: If you are petite and in between sizes, go down in size unless you plan on layering. If you are petite with long arms, size up but expect the rest to be loose. If you are average, go with your usual size. And finally- if you are lucky enough to be tall and lanky (or just have a long torso) you should probably try in store or look at other styles. I'm glad I tried both sizes on in store to help anyone else out there who may be torn on sizing. Note to Patagonia designers- thank you for making this style! And don't forget about the petite people when making new apparel! :)

Lightweight, warm, and stylish

I have several Patagonia jackets, including the Better Sweater and the Lightweight Marsupial Better Sweater Pullover, and I love that this one is seemingly lighter weight than the others and has a less "fleece-y" vibe.

Super comfortable and snuggly

I've had this jacket for 2 days now, and it happily arrived with the start of cooler fall weather, so I've worn it every day, all day - inside my house, lol. (Thrifty New Engand yankee here - slow to turn on the heat.) Anyway, BIG bonus points for being really soft and snuggly warm. I'll probably wear it daily all winter long. The on... Read Morely reason that I'm giving it 4 stars and not 5 is that it is just a bit short on my long torso - if I bend over, there is a gap between the end of my jacket and the top of my jeans. This is a bit disappointing to me, as I have a few other Patagonia tops/jackets and have never encountered this gap issue with them. For the record, I'm a long torso 5'6", 130 pounds and wearing a size small. The rest of the jacket fits me fine, so I think moving up to a medium would be too bulky - its just the cut is a bit short for my 5* level of satisfaction.
