The Patagonia Men's Synchilla Snap-T Pullover is a classic that kind of made fleece cool, and one of those type of fleece jackets you will probably own for like 20 years. The Synchilla is made with a warm and durable double-faced 100% polyester fleece, and has a low-sheared face that helps trap body heat, and resists abrasion so it will last you longer. This Patagonia fleece features spandex trimmed cuffs, and a taped 4-snap Supplex nylon placket that combine to keep in warmth, and the hip length makes it decent for layering when it's super cold out, or to wear alone during the spring or fall. The men's Synchilla fleece weighs in at around 18.7 ounces on average, has a relaxed fit design, and it's so loud in here right now.

"Super comfy, warm, and good looking fleece"
These things are great. They are super comfy and look really awesome. The sizing is a bit large. I am typically a Medium in outer wear, but went with the Small in this jacket. It's not slim fit or anything, but that's the style! You can't beat the comfort.
This is the third Synchilla Pullover I have purchased and the new patterns are true to the old fit. Althoug this appears to be a light weight pullover it actually is quit warm even into the low 40`s, you should note though, that it is not windproof. Also the electic band and the cuffs is very durable as I usually pull the sleeves up to my forarms and I am amazed at the retention the have bands kept. The same goes for the band at the waist line.Also I have washed both my new one and old ones in the washing machine and dryer (No/Low heat settings) with no problems or shrinkage.
I bought two of these. One solid blue one for me and another blue and grey patterned synchilla for my brother. They look great, just run it through the wash before wearing because I was getting some fuzz on my furniture when I first wore it. Different from the better sweater, which I preferred unwashed since it retained its soft interior. Large is perfect for a 6'1" 185lb male.
I bought the Synchilla for my husband in preparation for cool weather after he'd been eyeing mine. This fleece is baggy in all the right places and is definitely great for warmth during fall or nice winter day hikes, running errands or lounging around the house. Also, the colors are pretty awesome.
This is not a technical fleece that you're going to wear climbing or as insulation under a shell. It fits a bit baggy and probably doesn't have the greatest weight to warm rating. However, it is what it is, a super comfortable fleece that will last you forever while chilling out or going out and buying groceries when you're hung over.
