Kids' Better Sweater® 1/4-Zip Fleece

True To Size

I love the better sweater

I love the better sweater because I can wear it for extra warmth or just for a casual day as a pullover.

Quality , fit, and customer

Quality , fit, and customer service constant. Broader selection of available colors would encourage a higher volume of purchases.

Please make a kids XXS

The xs is too long for my 6 year old and the 5 is not quite right. Or consider making a size 6.

Hi Kelly, we apologize for the sizing issue. Our Design Team does look at reviews on our site and they do take feedback like this into consideration. If you feel a [return or exchange](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) would work best, feel free to begin either process at your earliest convenience.

Simple, mature, design for kids...but dyed.

Ordered the Better Sweater vest a few years ago and really liked how comfortable and versatile it was for our little guy. This jacket is basically the same thing just with arms. Nice and soft like fleece without the pilling and early failure of fleece in high wear areas. Would be nice to have a wool/brass option instead of plastic/plastic. Also, ab... Read Moreout the use of dyes... why even dye fabrics if it's so harmful? My kid doesn't need harmful colorants in his clothes. A natural, undyed, option like those commonly offered with brands in Norway would be much appreciated. We ordered the Stonewash version as it looked the most natural. Matches everything else we have in the closet and always looks great. ~No fights in the morning when getting ready for school.

Hi Tycho, thank you for all of the awesome feedback. Great news about certain dyes in our line, we actually have been experimenting with natural dyes and we have a [Clean Color Collection](https://www.patagonia.com/shop/clothing-gear/) that we encourage you to check out.

I love the better sweaters-my fourth one. My last 2 are kids size- i had an XL which is not as loose as the xxl. I prefer the xxl even though the sleeves are longer. This sweater is soft and warm. Love the richness of the green color.

Sadly the zippers are now plastic

I bought these every year for my family. This year when I ordered my sons I noticed the zipper itself was metal but the teeth were all plastic. Also, it was not the cleaned sewn in look on the chest. It was more sloppy looking and had a gap when it was sewn inside before. For this kind of money its not worth it. I loved the quality of the zippers a...

Comfy and stylish. My son loves it! He wears it for school and as a layer when skiing.

Love it

My kid wears it daily - hard to get it off to wash!

We buy it every year

This is the go to midlayer for my family of skiers. We buy 2 every year and they get passed down to younger siblings. We have never seen one wear out. They get passed on to our younger neighbors next!

great layer for my son

This was a gift for my 8 year old. It fits him great and he's been using it under his coat for alpine skiing. He likes the look and feel.

Patagonia Absolutely Needs a Size 6T or XXS

I love all Patagonia products, but their sizing issues persist, especially for kids. My 6 year-old son is very tall for his age, but he absolutely swims in a Boy's XS. (here, the Better Sweater, but for all products) Since he's too tall for a Toddler 5T, that leaves him with skipping the brand this year for outerwear until he gets bigger.... Read More I'm not even sure at age 7 if he'll be tall enough for XS. Patagonia, please add a size 6T or XXS to your product line. You have about a two year gap in size between 5T and XS currently.
