Better Sweater™ Gloves

XL is not XL

I really wanted these to work, but they run exceptionally small. I couldn't even get my hands into them. They've been passed down to my 5ft 7 wife. The XL fits her perfectly.

Great idea on paper, but poor fit and execution

I really wanted to like these gloves. Pretty much any Patagonia article I've bought before was an instant favorite. But not these gloves. In paper, convertible mittens to fingerless gloves are a good idea. But these gloves are not good in any of these configurations. First, the knit is so that wind can easily go thru. So in mitten mode, these... Read More do not keep the chill away at all. Then in fingerless mode, well, you don't have access to your thumb. I see why they designed like this as it would have been difficult to mitten-nize it without an always covered thumb, but because these gloves run very small, the thumb is always constricted. And yes, I did measure my knuckles before ordering, and yes, even after that, I had to exchange Mediums for Larges. I will give these gloves a couple more weeks, but it's hard to image me not returning them for a refund pretty soon.

As a 63 year young woman with arthritic hands these glove/mittens are an absolute blessing.

Like mitten top

Lost my other pair of these glove and thankfully they still make these. Like the fact that mitten top can be taken down for fingers to show. I use when I'm out and about, driving, shopping, walking.

These run small

I typically wear small size everything but these in small were so small that I couldnt get one of my knuckles through. I love better sweaters so I was a little sad about it. Going to return them for a medium. Id advise considering a size up due to the design of the finger holes.

February 17, 2023


I wore these last night it was about 15 degrees and my hands were numb and red after about 5 minutes. Felt like I had no gloves/mitts on at all. Very disappointed.

Hi Benjamin, the Better Sweater Fleece gloves are a great option, but they are not the warmest in our line. We currently don't have anything suitable for cold conditions, but our warmest for casual use are the Retro Pile Fleece Gloves. However, our warmest of all are our [Nano Puff Mitts](

Great gloves

I was excited to see Patagonia had a version of these glove/mittens.

Great multipurpose glove/mitten

These gloves/mittens have become my favorite this season. I love the ability to slip off the mitten and use my fingers. To make them perfect for me, I would put a piece of leather or something like that on the palm just below the fingers to prove a no slip grab. I like to wear them driving because I am in and out of the vehicle hauling stuff around... Read More, but they slip on my steering wheel so I have to take them off when I drive as one example. Having the thumb covered takes a little getting used to but doesn't hinder the use. Having my fingers free is sufficient. They are warm, but not too warm and haven't had any issues with my hands sweating.

February 13, 2023

Great Design

These are wonderful. Very warm....when you need your fingertips just pull the tip of the glove back. Terrific idea.

February 9, 2023

Warm, Good Utility

These gloves are a little loose around the wrists on my but otherwise fit true to size and are significantly more comfortable than any other convertible glove I've tried in the past. The webbing between the fingers is comfortable and allows good range of movement and they are warm when worn as mittens.

Not all that warm, needs

Not all that warm, needs some sort of leather/faux leather on the palms in order to use trekking poles.

Warm and practical

Very warm. Practical when taking sports photography pictures in the cold weather.

Soft + warm!

My hands get cold very easily and these mittens are a lifesaver. Very soft and warm and I like the it's easy to get my fingers out for using screens, etc.

January 11, 2023

Good Idea, but Half Baked & Returned

I wear gloves without finger tips. Hands dry and cracked this year. Perfect solution right? Wrong. Mitten flap is okay closed, but in fingerless position it's poorly restrained. Fingers are impossible tight. Get them on and you can't remove.

Best Ever Sweater Gloves

These are the best sweater mitts I've ever had & I've had many. My only complaint is I didn't know they come in black They do run small.

December 31, 2022

Great Looking but Runs Small

Read many reviews about how these gloves/mittens run small. So I sized up and still a bit snug but kept them because I love the look. The pull back option is nice too except one had a closure band that was a bit larger than the other & the button kept slipping out so I sewed it a bit tighter and that did the trick.

Girls love these mittens on me.

Effective at keeping hands warm, easy to open mittens when bare fingers are needed. Not restrictive like gloves with touch screen capability. And a few hot girls started conversations cause my mittens were so rad.

December 12, 2022

Comfy :)

Love the fit and warmth of the gloves - just wish they had a little flap for the thumb. It would make clipping dog leashes and unlocking my phone easier :)

Bad design on the fingers cuts off circulation

This is the first Patagonia product I've ever bought that was less than thoughtfully designed. The way the fingers are constructed (folded over and hemmed like a teeny tiny pant leg) constricts the size of the finger opening, and eliminates the elastic properties of the fleece. The next effect is that the blood flow to the tips of your fingers... Read More is restricted. You wont notice this in the store, but when your on the water on a fall day, and start to get cold, your body naturally restricts blood flow to the extremities. This design flaw exacerbates this substantially. I don't have huge hands relative to my 6-4 height (ya, ha ha ha) and my fingers are fairly thin. I usually wear a size L but bought an XL, and my fingertips numb within 30 min on the water, and dead-numb-like-somebody-elses-fingers-numb by an hour. Lest you think this was only because I was on the water on a cold day with the fingers exposed, I just experienced the same thing in full mitten mode walking my dogs around the block on a cool dry day (44 and overcast, no rain, no wind).

Buy a size up, otherwise stylish, functional, not super warm

Bought these for winter walks with my dog, but was surprised to discover that the Larges were very small for my hands.

I like the theory of a combo mitten and fingertip-less glove, but the little hems at the end of each finger were too thick and stiff and the gloves aren't as warm as I had hoped.

Dog Walking Gloves

I couldn't be more specific when I say this but I needed gloves for walking my dog and having access to my fingers to clean up her messes. I was given a pair of larges for Christmas and I was stunned because they didn't fit. I returned them and they finally became available in late Feb./early March when I didn't need them as much but...

True to size! Great fit, incredibly warm and they look great

Great multi-use glove/mitten

This is the second pair I've bought because I love them so much (I lost my first pair and was heartbroken). They are super warm, but not suffocating.

Looks Good But Very Disappointing

I had high hopes for these gloves. They looked exactly like what I was looking for, fingerless gloves with pullover mitten in standard colors (especially navy which is hard to find), warm and elegant looking. These fit the bill until I actually tried them out on a mild snowy day ( 34F, not that windy). I wasn't out more than 2 hours playing wi... Read Moreth my toddler and my hands were chilled. I immediately regretted wearing these out. For the price that they are and the brand they are made by I expect they should at least keep your hands warm! I was going to order them in all the colors I had such high hopes for them, but now I am regretting ordering even one! Save yourself the money and get a pair of gloves that is actually made for winter. Who cares if it was made with materials that saved the earth if it doesn't do what it is designed to do, keep your hands warm!

December 28, 2021


I brought these because I needed a lighter weight and more practical glove/mitten than I currently had. They help keep my hands warm when its cold but nice to have the pull back option for functionality. Happy with this purchase.

Great gloves for everyday

Great gloves for everyday wear. They keep your hands warm, but give you flexibility when you need your fingers. Functional and stylish.

Nice, but not very warm

I've had these for a couple weeks and I'm already afraid these aren't going to cut it for Chicago in February. There really is no insulation, so on windy days my hands still get pretty chilly. While it's nice to be able to break out my fingers from the mittens, I wish I could do so with the thumb (to use my phone).

NOT for warmth - wind goes right through them

I bought these for when i walk my dogs - i wore them on a relativly warmish day ( 45 degrees with very slight wind ) - when i say very little, i mean very little warmth to them and the little wind that was out there cut right through the gloves.

Love them!

I love these mittens!! I measured my hands per the directions before asking for them for my birthday, and they fit perfectly. My ring size is a 5 (smaller than average) so I have no issues with the finger holes. In fact, they would fit slightly bigger fingers than mine as I can stretch them to create more space. Just be sure measure properly before... Read More ordering. I also love that they clip together, which allows me to easily hang them with my jackets.

November 19, 2021

Love these mittens

I love these mittens so much that I added them to a couple of my coats. My hands are always cold, I love mittens but some times mittens are clumsy. The flip to expose the fingers for detail then put the cover back on, ohh that's good.

November 11, 2021

They run very very small.

Nice gloves but way way too small. The XL didnt fit and had to return.

September 2, 2021

Great design

But, Im kind of small and needed to exchange medium for a large and the finger holes are still tight. I can live with it but not sure why the gloves fit this way. Possibly too much excess material sewn and bunched up at that seam.

August 5, 2021

Warm, High Quality

Definitely an upgrade from what you normally find in this category. Warm and comfy. A bit tight around the fingers but I think that's the design to keep the heat in. Note - the thumb stays covered in either mode - that might bother you for tasks like typing on a keyboard, but I adjusted...

Not Warm

Firstly they run very small. Secondly, the fingers are cutoff very short. Thirdly, they are not warm at all. Epic fail all around.

March 1, 2021


I love the way these gloves feel. Cozy and warm. So handy to have finger access. I also like button fastener that holds the mitten flap back. Much better than Velcro, in my opinion. I did need to exchange the large for an XL because the fingers were a little snug and the length a little short for my large hands.

Warm and comfortable

These mittens are warm, comfortable and high quality materials. They could be improved by getting rid of the strap and button to keep them open.

February 26, 2021

Well-made but not functional

These gloves were used as in town gloves, hopefully, but what I found is the fit was small, the feel of the glove was a bit unnatural in a little uncomfortable and in general it was one of my lesser favorite gloves. Might work better for a smaller hand just didnt work for me

Warm But Run Small

At first, I was very surprised by how small these gloves run. I typically would order a Large for such an item, but I had to exchange for an XL, which fit much better.

Love these gloves/mittens. They keep my fingers warm but adore me to quickly have dexterity when needed without taking them completely off.

February 20, 2021

Nice Gloves for "cool" and "cold" weather

We are in the Seattle area and walk daily. We like these fingerless gloves with the cap on them so that when it is not quite so cold the cap can come off and when it is colder, the cap can cover the fingers. My husband and I both are usually medium glove size but purchased the large and they fit nicely with a tad extra room in the palms.

Fit like a Glove

Fits just right and perfect to keep warm but able to cool down just a bit or give the option when you need just a bit more gripping power.

Adorable Gloves

I bought these gloves because they looked warm and very comfortable. I liked that you can wear them without the mitten cover. It is a clever design. However, the finger holes are small and are not comfortable. I had bought two pairs and unfortunately had to return both.

Perfect Every Day Gloves

These are perfect everyday gloves for driving until the heating kicks in, for exercise walks around town, etc. Two key features: fingerless and mitten modes; better sweater material (which is warm plus machine washable).

Gloves are warm and great for texting. Finger holes are a little tight, but otherwise fit well and true to size.

February 12, 2021

Uncomfortable to wear

The finger holes are far too small and the thumb is too short. These things were mentioned in several reviews, so I sized up to L. Nevertheless, the mitts are really uncomfortable.

February 10, 2021

Warm and comfy

Love the mittens - theyre warmer than gloves- and the removable tops so you can use your fingers without taking them off. The only drawback Is the very small finger holes. I have small skinny fingers and they just fit me.

Warm and practical

Because of my poor circulation, gloves don't work for me (I actually end up feeling colder in my hands with gloves on than without and in my pockets). These Gloves/Mittens finally did the trick.

Awesome gloves

Gloves look beautiful, color is great. Runs a bit small so I would suggest sizing up. Only downside is that the thumb is covered, would be nice if it could be free when mitten is up, but I believe it allows for better thumb mobility when closes. Awesome Patagonia product as always

Too small

I purchased the large size based on what the size chart recommended. The gloves were way to tight that it cut off circulation to my fingers. I ended up just giving them to my wife.

Wish they were warmer

I like these gloves, but if the temperature dips below 20, they are not warm enough. That happens often living in Minnesota.

I liked the idea of buying a product with recycled materials and love most of my patagonia gear but these were quite small and lighter weight than I thought they'd be. Seem like decent quality but the sizing was quite disappointing. Will need to return.

Super fun

I am super happy with my purchase and feels very comfortable and warm. I enjoy the choices of wearing these just fingers or cover and wear as mittens. Thank you

Casual Use

Well made and glad they are not wool. I wish the fingers were a little bit looser of a fit. Also would prefer a magnet vs. button.

Warm Mittens

Love these super warm mittens. Sooo convenient to flip the little cover to have my fingers free, too. Great looking, and fit is perfect!

Cozy staple winter mitten

I love supporting this company and I love my dad. When he needed some warm mittens for winter walks in the mid-Atlantic, these were an easy choice. Great fit, easy to use, and flexible. Hopeful they'll last a long time.

January 4, 2021

A good idea but not quite right

These are a nice weight and very soft but oddly shaped. The thumb is short and the finger openings are really tight, Ive tried both large and x-large and still dont care for the fit. Im typically a medium to large in other brands. Also, these dont cut the wind well at all, would be good for someone who runs warm and doesnt want to overheat but othe... Read Morerwise not well suited for anything more than casual wear in sheltered areas.

Super cute and functional winter gloves. Probably not ideal for super cold days as they are a little drafty but perfect for most daily wear. Its great to have the option of warmer mitten but functionality of gloves.

Awesome for cool weather hikes

These are great for cool (40-50F) hikes. Keeps my fingers toasty!

My Favorite Gloves

I love these gloves. I have them in a M and just bought a L for my husband. (Both fit me, to be honest, but our hands aren't super different in size.) They keep my hands warm in literally any temperature from single digits to 50 degrees and up. Highly recommend! My only comment is they do pill pretty intensely after a while. If you have the p... Read Moreatience you can pick them off (or use a de-piller), but just a heads up. It doesn't deter me from purchasing, but I figured I'd mention it.

Cozy Mittens

Wonderful material and continues to be made with sustainable products. Love the design. Fits well, but runs small related to the seams in finger holes.

December 17, 2020

Good gloves, but could be better.

I've had these for about a year now. I tried them at the store and found that they run pretty small, so I had to size up. Overall, I found them good enough to use on a casual dry winter day (30-40F), but not for any active use or wet weather conditions. The fleece is thinning out, especially on the palm, after some heavy use. I wish they had a... Read More palm lining for additional grip and durability. The convertible glove/mitt was pretty handy, but the loop/button enclosure for the mitten flap is pretty annoying. It loosens easily and takes a while to hook it back on while you have then gloves on.

Very happy with the purchase. Originally ordered a small but needed to return for a medium.

Not that warm

I just went on a 26°F morning walk with these on (NYC winter) and my fingers weren't kept warm. Even with the gloves on and my hands in my pockets, all my fingers felt chilly. The fabric is breathable, but wind goes through these gloves and no heat is retained. I really like convertible mittens, but it's a bummer that these are the only ...

Run extremely small

Great winter accessory.

Love these gloves! The diversity of the glove is great. Very cold, stay covered up. When it gets a little warmer, flip them open. With regards to sizing, I have a huge hand and the xl fit perfect.

Great gloves, wish they were a little warmer

I bought these gloves to walk my dog. It's great to be able to use my hands when needed without fully taking my gloves off.

Nice and comfy

Great gloves for casual wear. I have two minor suggestions for product improvement though. 1 - the finger holes are a tad tight. Not to the point of being uncomfortable, but noticeable enough that I am constantly pulling at them in an attempt to loosen. 2 - pull the button back towards the cuff ever so slightly where the mitten tops are secured.

Perfect in Cold Temps

I'm a walker (I know I checked "running," but walking was not an option.) -- everyday. That means when it's 20 degrees, I'm still out there.

Convenient and comfy, but runs small.

I like the material and design, but these just seem too small even in a Large, a bit too tight on the fingers and can't pull them all the way to the base of the fingers. Will try an XL.

November 26, 2020


So far everything about my new mittens is great. I bought them mostly for running. Running gloves never keep my hands warm. And usually the tips on the fingers dont work with my smart phone.

Convenient and comfy, but runs small.

I like the design and they are comfortable as you'd assume, but I thought I was sizing up enough and was still wrong. The measurement around my knuckles is right at 8.5", I ordered a large and it's still too tight and I can't get the gloves to fit snug between my fingers. Will try the XL.

February 5, 2020

Great gloves overall

These are great gloves overall! I use them for dog walks and when needed while commuting for work. I wish the button and loop design was a magnet or snap button for better experience when not using mitten though! Fit is great for me but may be small for others!

January 6, 2020

Great convertable mittens!

Love the warmth of these and ease of putting them on and off. I have larger knuckles so they were a little snug at the beginning but have loosened in a week or so of wear. Would recommend!

The gloves are perfect for biking, when your hands are too hot you just take the cover off.

I want to love these but........

These gloves are fine if you wear them on a relatively warm day. Lots of air passes thru the material that covers your finger tips. This is not the same material as the Better Sweater - it is lighter. That being said, I'd take a Better Sweater in this material and color. I"ve been wearing these gloves on walks with the dog on days ranging... Read More 25-35 degrees. Once you are generating body heat, the gloves are fine. They are pretty mittens. I would have sent them back if they came with the rest of my order but the cost to ship them back is not worth sending by themselves. They glove length is quite short so if you have long hands, the elastic wrist band will most likely lie right at the end of your palm.

Hi Kris, thanks for taking the time to write us a review! We're sorry to hear about the disappointment with the gloves. The Better Sweater Gloves aren't the warmest that we offer so you may want to opt for something warmer like the [Nano Puff Mitts]( We don't want you to hold onto the gloves if they're not meeting your needs so we've reached out to you directly with some return assistance!

Lightweight mittens

I wanted to love these mittens. I was hoping the accessibility of fingers would be helpful but they were just too thin to be practical for me. I need them for long walks with my kids and a general everyday mitten. The wind whipped right through them so I had to return. I got a size large as my hands measured 7.5” (top end of medium). They fit wel... Read Morel. Glad I read the reviews that they run a bit small.

December 29, 2019

Great fit and comfort

I bought the largest size (I am female with pretty average size hands) and the gloves fit perfect. They are very comfortable and easy to wear. They are great for being able to use my hands/fingers when I need to and still be warm (ish). When the temps are colder, they won’t be the warmest gloves I own but they are vest useful. I love them!

December 25, 2019

To small

I bought the large for my father as a birthday gift. He is 5'9" and his hands are average size. I exchanged them for an extra large and the gloves are still too small.

Thanks for your feedback, Bryce! We're sorry to hear these gloves were too small for your father. If you'd like to return them, you are welcome to do so [here]( I would recommend checking out our [Wind Shield Gloves]( as an alternative. This simple, low profile style does not lack on warmth, and customers found them to generally run a little bit big.

Comfy fabric, uncomfortable structure

I thought that these gloves would make a practical stocking stuffer for my daughters, but they made the ends of the fingers too restricting. Rather than fitting comfortably on your hands, the finger sections were sewn so that they fit very tightly. There's no ignoring it, or getting used to the tight fit.

Better Sweater Gloves

I need winter mittens that can expose the fingers for taking pictures and these glove are perfect. They are a heavy weight and work well in the cold.

Design Flaws

Was stoked to see these as the only convertible gloves I could find out there were poor quality. Initially, size was off. I thought I would need a small-ish medium and ended up with a large -- the medium was way too small. The bigger issue is the retainer for the mitten flap -- it doesn't work! The button (or loop, however you want to look at... Read More it) isn't positioned to the point that it stays secured back. I feel like no one at Patagonia actually tried wearing these before putting them up for sale. A snap button here, though it wouldn't look as good, would work much, much better. On the plus side, they're that lovely better sweater fleece we all know and love. I wore these out for a walk in very windy 40 degree weather and was plenty warm. Overall pretty good gloves, but not well thought out.

Great Gloves, Thumbs are Trapped!

I love my new Better Sweater fingerless mittens however, there isn’t a slit in the thumb to open for thumb access. This detail would be helpful for using door knobs, opening dog waste bags, using devices, etc. The gloves are warm and look great so I’m not returning, but four stars due to the missing thumb design detail. (May try to add it myself bu... Read Moret they’re still too new at this point for alterations.)

Almost Perfect

First, sizing. I tried to follow the adult glove sizing guide and this is what I got: circumference 8.5". Based on this, I could have ordered size M but have had problems with gloves being too small in the past and decided to go with a size up to be safe. So I was really surprised when size L barely fit on my hand - in particular the thumb len... Read Moregth, which was way too short. Anyway, I exchanged for size XL, which is much better but still a bit snug. My second observation is that the seam of the thumb runs more down the back and front, fleshy part of my thumb rather than the sides. Otherwise, I'm really happy with the quality of the materials - they're warm, seem durable, and are exactly the style I wanted.

November 16, 2019

Soft, but not as warm as I was hoping.

These gloves aren't quite as warm as I was hoping, but my hands are always cold and I should probably stick with traditional mittens for most warmth. Very soft, though, and I like the color.

Perfect Winter Gloves

These gloves are so toasty warm!! They are perfect because you can keep them on and still use your phone.

November 11, 2019

Solid gloves

These gloves are pretty good. They’re fairly warm but beware that they are fleece. Fleece is not known to block out wind and if you’re wearing these on a particularly windy day, you will feel that cold wind through your hands. Sizing was spot on so make sure you get the right size using the size chart.

November 11, 2019

Fingerless gloves

The better sweater fingerless gloves are great! They are well made and I appreciate the little details. There’s a way to button the finger covers back when you don’t need them and a little “strap” to help pull them on and off.

Perfect for use with a camera

I can just remove the finger cover and use my camera without pulling my gloves off and on. This would help with cell phone use too. They are nice and warm too!

Warm and Toasty

Super warm. I wish the thumbs were also half sewn. Having your thumb fully covered while fishing or shooting and the rest of your fingers free makes it difficult to feel the action. The hook is nice to keep the pair together and the construction is well made.
