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.

I am 6'1", 185lbs and the large fits great. I wear this pull over whenever the weather dips and it is very versatile in that it can be worn hiking on a chilly day or worn over a button down with a pair of jeans for a night out and still look great. I regularly get compliments on my better sweater.
"Awesome Pullover that meets all requirements!"
I bought the men's M better sweater and it fits perfectly. I am 5'10" and 175lbs and it fits like a glove. High quality material will definitely keep you warm. Much better than some of the other fleeces out there - you know the ones that resemble a yarn-knit craft from a 5th grader. A great buy for the price and quality you get from Patagonia
Good feel, and although I'm still breaking it in, the best way I can describe it is that it seems to be a hybrid of a fleece and a long sleeve shirt. Very warm. Downfalls: doesn't guard against wind too well.
"GREAT JACKET for the great outdoors and casual everyday."
This is the perfect jacket, we had to wait four months after Christmas for it to be back in stock. I use it for everyday colder weather wear. You don't get over heated when wearing it which is nice because who likes to look/feel clammy. The bonus is that it even washes really well, no fading or strange little fabric balls for material usage
Purchased the black better sweater for my husband & had to return it due to the material -- the grey color does not show the balls (wear & tear), but the black is outrageous! Too bad, since it looks beautiful before washing!
