    A step above the rest.

    As its name suggests, the Patagonia Men's Better Sweater Fleece Jacket is no ordinary sweater. Equal parts technical and urban-friendly, the Better Sweater is constructed with a sweater-knit fleece that provides cozy warmth and wicks away moisture, so you're able to to take to to the hills or the city. Additionally, the bluesign approved fleece material is dyed with a low-impact process that ultimately reduces the use of dye stuffs, energy, and water. Not to mention, the stitching is Fair Trade Certified, so you can feel good about feeling, well, good. The raglan sleeves provide unimpeded mobility, and the flatlock seams assure chafe-free comfort. A bevvy of pockets keeps all of your necessities close at hand, and the stand-up collar doubles down on your protection when the weather takes a turn for the worse.

    Comfy Fleece

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: L
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    Super comfy fleece, very soft and keeps me very warm. Fits really great, and looks awesome. Can dress it up for a friends wedding, but also at home on a hike or camping.

    comfortable and cozy

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    great fit, good look. high quaility. the wind cuts thru when the blows, and not as warm as i would like. but great for the office!

    Great jacket for multiple seasons & uses

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    Great jacket for multiple seasons & uses. Jacket is very comfortable and warm, but adequate for cooler seasons, but also doesn't overheat in warmer shoulder seasons. It is more boxier and good for layering and bigger torso.

    Comfy jacket

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Extra large
    • Height: 6'0"

    I got this for my boyfriend who likes it for the most part. He says it's warm and soft, but a little stiff. Also the collar doesn't fold nicely. It will not lay down and bunches up. I've tried hang drying it and that doesn't help. The jacket has held up well, just the collar issue is bothersome.

    Go to fleece!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    After seeing all the reviews for this fleece I decided I would give it a shot. Let me start by telling you I don't regret my decision and if anything I should have bought this sooner! Not only does this piece look great but also feels and performs great. I couldn't recommend this any higher as Patagonia like always has knocked it out of the park with the quality and durability you have come to expect!

    Perfect

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 190lbs

    Bought this as a replacement to another fleece zip up I have from another popular brand, that got stained and ripped after years. The fit and finish is superior in all aspects, the fleece itself is softer, and it was actually a bit thicker and warmer than the other brand. I'm upset it I didn't buy this sooner.

    I am 5'10 and 190lbs with an athletic build (size 31 pants). Usually wear clothes more "fitted" as opposed to baggy. Size medium fit me perfectly.

    Stylish Dad jacket

      I bought this jacket for my dad as a Christmas present and this is what he said about it: “I’ve always liked these jackets and was thrilled to finally get one. I think they make everyone look more attractive. The jacket is really warm and the material is nice and soft. Would recommend this jacket to anyone looking for an added sense of style

      Classic

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size
      • Height: 5'7"
      • Weight: 125lbs

      I gave this as a gift and now I want one for myself. He loved it. It fit great and will be the perfect throw on for just about anything and everything. You can layer it to head up the mountain or wear it around the town. Let me know if I can help you pick out sizing!

      Great fleece jacket

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'7"
      • Weight: 160lbs

      Super warm fleece that you can definitely dress up or dress down, I feel like the fit isn't baggy by any means and allows you to layer with a nice button up underneath. Would highly recommend.

      Great jacket, doesn't look good for long.

      • Height: 5'7"
      • Weight: 135lbs

      Let me start by saying I love the jacket and I love patagonia (have a ton of their gear), BUT this jacket started to look raggedy after a wash or two. It still performs great, but I have never had another jacket/sweater/fleece pill so much and look so worn out so fast.

      A casual classic!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 6'1"
      • Weight: 174lbs

      I wear this sweater straight from the ski hill to apres. Warm and classy on the more casual side but works great for hiking or skiing. I wear a medium but could have also gone with the large, I like my cloths a little on the tighter side and this seems to run just a hair large.

      patagonia better sweater xl kind of sm?

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: xl
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 220lbs

      bought the better sweater in XL, fits kind of tight. all other XL fit me, returned it.
      I bought a down sweater a few years ago in XL, I kept it but it also fits kind of tight. Does Patagonia sizes run small?

      Different fit than other Patagonia

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small
      • Height: 5'8"
      • Weight: 170lbs

      So as a shorter/stockier guy, Patagonia products have often not been a good fit for me. Where I might need a size "S" length for sleeves or body length, I'll usually need size "M" to fit properly in the chest and/or waist area. This better sweater actually fits great in a size "S" all the way around. I tried the M first, assuming i'd need it, but the M ran pretty large by my measure, and was a little baggy around waist and chest. S was a perfect fit for me. For thinner guys, definitely consider sizing down compared to other Patagonia products. Apart from that, the quality and comfort are what you'd expect from Patagonia and I love that it's something I can wear to the office just as comfortably as in base camp. Only complaint is that the ladies' version has a sleeve pocket whereas the men's version has a napoleon pocket. I actually prefer the functionality of a sleeve pocket over a napoleon pocket, but not a huge deal and definitely not a deterrent to owning it for me.

      Stylish, But Had to Return

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 6'2"
      • Weight: 215lbs

      This is a terrific fleece sweater from Patagonia that is stylish, comfortable and warm. I purchased the women's version for me and thinking my boyfriend might like one, purchased a men's large as he is 6'2'', 215 lbs and has broad shoulders from lifting and triathlon. Unfortunately, he found the fit of the (regular) Better Sweater too boxy around his torso, even while trying it on with a t-shirt, so I suspect he would prefer the more form-fitting (Performance) Better Sweater jacket instead. This still looked great, so if you like a more loose fit for layering, I recommend this.

      Nice and Warm!

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: small
      • Height: 5'6"
      • Weight: 160lbs

      I wore this jacket in temps ranging from the low 60s to the high 30's, and i never felt too warm or cold. It also looks great with with jeans or work out clothes. I'm 5'6" 160lbs, and the SM fits almost perfectly. I own other patagonia jackets so i'm confident this one will last a long time.

      Unanswered Question

      I am a woman, 5' 7" and weight 158. I am trying to decide what size to buy in a unisex fleece jacket -- medium or small. What would you suggest?

      I'd like to buy this for my husband, but, concerned about the sizing.
      He is 6'4 and 240 (little padding in the mid section).
      He's usually an XL (tall) in jackets/fleece.
      Any thoughts on sizing?


      Thank you!

      Hey Ginger!



      So I would say this runs a bit small. So If your husband normally wears a XL, I would step up to the next size. If this is something that you are nervous about, many customer will order two sizes and return what does not work. ( Since we have free exchanges.. within the lower 48 states that is hehe)
