The Men's Better Sweater 1/4 Zip by Patagonia. A rugged 1/4-zip fleece pullover that combines the aesthetic of wool with the easy care of polyester fleece. This Patagonia fleece has Raglan sleeves for comfort when wearing a pack making it the most awesome fleece outerwear that Patagonia offers. I received a notice from the FDA today regarding Lobster Poo. I was really worried about what people have been eating until I found out it's a candy produced in Maine. I'm still a little worried. I'll take Better Sweater over Lobster Poo any day.

So this a men's sweater, I however am a woman. I got a men's small and I generally wear a small or medium in woman's outerwear. I love this sweater. It is perfect to wear on it's own under another coat in really cold temperatures. I have yet to take it adventuring further than my day to day activities, but have do doubt it will hold up well when I do.
"Keeps you warm and comfortable in the winter"
I got this as a Christmas gift, and it fits great. I'm 6'1" 160 lbs, and large fits me just fine. The colors are great too! I got the Spanish Moss color, but I wouldn't mind getting another in a different color, since there's so many to choose from.
This sweater is awesome. It's warm, soft and good looking. Unfortunately it's a little big. I'm a pretty normal sized died. 5'10, 175 lb. I probably could've gone with a small, but this'll be good for layering underneath.
I wanted a great looking Patagonia pullover and this is it. I am 5'8" 165 lbs and the Medium size fits great. I love the Channel Blue color. I really like the thicker feel of the fabric compared to other fleece pullovers. It is great for lounging around the house or going out when the wind is not too strong.
"Everyone needs (yes needs) one of these..."
This is easily in my top 10 favorite possessions...in with things like my Chacos, my grandma's necklace, and my jeep. It is the perfect piece for all scenarios (well not the 100 degree summer Michigan had this year, but you get the idea) and I take it with me everywhere and have bought it as a gift for many a loved ones. My only beef is that mine has pilled a bit where my backpack rubs, but I'm an unconditional lover.
I have owned the 1/4 Zip Better Sweater for about 4 months now. I am 6'3", 168lbs and purchased a Large . A medium would work for my size but I like the extra room for layering. I like this sweater for its quality and easy care. After several washes, it still looks new and there is no shrinkage. I also appreciate that this sweater is so versatile--it is nice enough to wear to work with a colored shirt underneath or you can wear it casually with jeans and look snappy. The quality fantastic and the money is well spent. For exceptional quality that lasts, I don't mind paying a higher price.
