Great jacket overall. Got this as a replacement to Northface Denali jacket. Keeps warm in freezing temperatures. Has been a godsend in the artic vortex we're been experiencing in the northeast. Doesn't block wind too well. Color seems to be true to the picture, I got the brown and can wear with almost anything. Outside of pockets are a bit stiff at first, but after washing once, they loosen up and aren't noticeable.
"Good quality, nice fit and serves its purpose"
Its nice to see that after all of these years, Patagonia has not skimped on their mfg process. This is still a quality product, warm and comfortable that fits great and looks great. It has become my favorite go-to fleece. I am 5"10", 172 lbs, 31" waist and bought a medium.
First, the "pale khaki" color is anything but pale khaki. It was described to me as the color of coffee with a splash of cream, which I'd say is accurate. More generally, it's brown. This jacket is one of the most comfortable I've ever owned. I come in out of the cold, sit down at my desk, and realize two hours later that I've still got my jacket on. That's how comfortable and cozy it is. I highly recommend it.
I bought this for a Christmas gift for my boyfriend last year. He LOVED it. I am considering buying another one for this year in a different color. He isn't a "jacket" kind of guy so the light weight comfyness the better sweater has was perfect for him!
"Good quality, nice fit and serves its purpose"
I was looking for a fleece that I could wear around the house and as a mid layer in the cold Chicago winters. The Better Sweater fit the bill. I am 5'10", a 172lbs, 31-32' waist and bought a Medium. It fit nice in the shoulders and was not too boxey. Most importantly it is quite comfortable and warm. I am wearing it now as a matter of fact as I type this review at 10pm at night. I ordered the Blue color and it arrived exactly as it looked on line. I was going to buy my brother one and found out that he already had one! Two big thumbs up!
"Soft, warm, looks nice, but slightly large."
The jacket looks nice, and is very soft and warm. It doesn't do much in the way of wind protection, but that's just about every soft fleece. I would suggest trying one on if you can. I ordered a large and it's a little big on me in the midsection. I am 5'9" 215, and it feels a little big. Will be exchanging it for a medium soon.
i have an orange one for woods in the fall and hunting season and I want more for casual wear when I'm not in the woods. They are super warm and soft. My girlfriend steals it constantly. I recommend and will buy more.
"Amazing jacket, very warm, overall awesome"
Got this jacket after I saw it online and fell in love! I wear this jacket in all climantes. In the fall (50's) this jacket kicks butt, its all i wear. During the winter its great for layering. Wish the bottom had a sinch cord or something to tighten it up seeing how im a skinny dude, but im stil in love with the jacket...overall AWESOME
"Nice Jacket, A Little Big in the Mid-Section Though"
This is a sharp fleece. It has a knit look to it, so it can be worn to work or even to a nice restaurant.I am 5ft 9in 160lbs and wear a size Medium in pretty much everything. My only little complaint is that this jacket in a size Medium is a little too big in the mid section. Everything else, like the sleeve length, chest size, overall jacket length is great through. The jacket does not look too baggy, so overall its not at all a deal breaker. I tried a size Small in this jacket too, but it was too short in the sleeves and overall jacket length, the chest was tight as well. In conclusion, I would just order your regular size and be prepared for the jacket to be a little room in the tummy area.
