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.
The Patagonia Better Sweater is one of my faves! It's a perfect base layer for skiing and great to throw on over jeans for a casual night out and great for a chilly afternoon hike. The body fit is a little slim and the sleeves are a little long but its super comfy and cozy.
I have two other Patagonia fleeces (other styles) and this one is definitely the best one for everyday wear. The sizing is a little smaller than my other two, all three are smalls but this one is more tightly fitting. Extremely comfy and a great color!!
"Until you buy one, you will never know how much you wanted one."
This is a great outdoor sweater. You will put in on to go out in the cold, then never take it off until you go to bed. It always looks good no matter how many times you wash it. The gray is a great color if you have a yellow lab and a black lab. Somehow it is the perfect color to mask either dog hair color. If you get the black and have a yellow lab, it is a dog hair magnet.
This sweater is fantastic, warm, and good-looking. While it's not my favorite for more intense outdoor activities (I would go with something more like the R1), this is probably my most-worn piece from Patagonia. Great for around town or the house, since it's not only warm and comfortable but flattering. Also a really great idea as a gift!
