This is my go-to pullover when heading to the gym. I'd definitely purchase this item again. I am 5'9" and I ordered a small. Fortunately, the sleeves are the perfect length and the sweater is cut so that it is long enough to hit just past my hips.
I love patagonia and have multiple R1s, but thought I'd try the better sweater...It is way better... Maybe the best, but I don't want the sweater to get a big head. So I'll stick with saying it's a better sweater.
"I had to get another one because I wore my first one EVERY DAY"
I bought the blue one and it was so warm and comfortable that I found myself reaching for it every day. For outdoor activities, running errands, even casual Fridays at work. Looks put together, not at all sloppy, but is as comfortable as your favorite sweatshirt. Just went skiing and it was a great mid-layer, slips perfectly over a base layer and isn't too bulky to wear under a heavier coat. I am 5'2 125 lbs. I get a medium so I can wear with leggings and it will cover my bum. This is worth every penny. If you're on the fence, GO FOR IT!!!!
Bought this for my daughter as a gift. She is 5' 7" and 128 pounds. The medium fits her perfect. She wears it snowboarding and says it keeps her toasty warm. I am ordering one for myself because every time I see her wear it I am jealous!
I am seriously in love with Patagonia, in general, and the better sweater is no exception. I like the half-zip better than the full-zip (& I own both in different colors), but they are equally as warm and generally fabulous. My next purchase will be the better sweater vest!Pros: All the colors rock, it's adorable and deceivingly warm. It's also perfect under a shell as it's not too bulky. Cons: It has super long arms, which would be awesome if I had longer arms, but I don't. I just roll them up, though, and it's fine.If you are even slightly considering buying this, DO IT!
I LOVE THE BETTER SWEATER! I am 5ft4in, 120lbs and the small fits great! It works as a base layer and it is super cute to wear to class/ work. I would literally wear this sweater every day if it were socially acceptable. So flattering and soooo comfy! I recommend this sweater to all of my friends because it is the BEST!!
"The Greatest Layering Option of All Time, Seriously"
Purchased this 1/4 zip in early November and it was one of the greatest purchases I've made in a long time. Keeps me perfectly warm when walking to class on cold New England mornings, but its not too hot either. I've worn it hiking in just above freezing temps, and as a layer snowboarding up in VT. Whatever I've worn it for its seriously been perfect. Lots of compliments on it too, which never hurts. This 1/4 zip makes all my other 1/4 zips feel inferior.Bottom Line: Feels great, does its job, looks great, and you'll never want to take it off.
This is a nice, thick fleece that gets the job done just fine. It's got good warmth for its weight, and I love the quarter zip on it. My only issue is with the seams on the sleeves--they're positioned in a way that can get a little uncomfortable if you're sitting at a desk, but it's not really noticeable if you're out and about. I'm 5'2", 125 lbs and the small fits perfectly over a t-shirt.
The Patagonia Better Sweater is the perfect layer underneath a jacket for cold Wisconsin winters. I bought this sweater a year and a half ago, wear it constantly, and it has withstood the test of time. I'm 5'4'' and 125 lbs and got a size small, which fits perfectly. Soft, warm, and a great layer to keep warm!
I love this product! I bought the feather gray. Great for fall/spring hiking or just dashing around town. Perfect for layering under a rain coat or warmer jacket, but works well as a top layer on cool mornings. I'm 5' 3" and 115 lbs, so I bought the extra small. Fits exactly as expected (slim fit but not too tight). I tried on the small in a Patagonia store recently and it was too baggy for me. Also, the trim looks more purple-ish in the picture than in real life. It's really just gray.
