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.

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!
I got the Patagonia better sweater on sale for $50 and, having would owned it for a while, would buy it again for retail if I lost it. It is VERY warm for the weight and material and is super plush on the inside. Excellent quality and materials.
"Inexpensive but warm and comfortable fleece"
I purchased a small thinking it would be the normal Patagonia sizing - a "regular fit" like this one would be roomy on me... It fit well enough, but was snug, and also shrank... so I would suggest you purchase a medium if you are my size.Some reviewers say this runs large, but I'm not sure how... I have a number of other Patagonia products and I believe this 1/4 zip runs small. For comparison, I have the normal "better sweater" which runs more true to size than this product.Overall, I like the 1/4 zip pullover (but, I'm a fan of pullovers...), the fleece is comfy and warm but does not block wind well. Arms run long-ish (but I don't mind).Note: I'm 5'11, ~155lbs. Broad shoulders. I am the awkward size in-between small and medium...
