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.

"Great, though I wouldnt call it a better sweater -- just different"
I really like the better sweater, but I wouldn't wear it when I would wear a sweater. This is a fleece... and a rather bulky one at that. It is really well made. The fleece weaving looks nice, though I understand that it can pill as it wears.In any case, it's super warm and looks really nice. Well done, Patagonia.
The "regular fit" provides great warmth a and nice range of motion. In fact, it's so warm that it may be too much for intense aerobic activities like cross-country skiing or vigorous snowshoeing. It's worked well for climbing. Dense enough material to do a decent job blocking wind, too. Fine looking thing, the exterior actually does look like a tightly knit wool sweater. Oh, and it's stylish--great for wearing around town.
This sweater fits great. I am 6'2 and have a lot of trouble finding sleeves that can cover these wrists of mine. This product totally delivers. It looks goo, but can be a little on the baggy side if you are slim, but not so baggy as other fleece/sweaters I have purchased. IT is long enough for me. It keeps you as warm as you would expect a a fleece to and is great for layering. It also looks great and is comfortable to boot!
I've been wearing Patagonia since the 70s, the days of canvas shirts and trousers. This sweater wears along the tradition of outdoor excellence. While new designer se are creating foo foo clothing at Patagonia, their are still the traditionalist that carry on the high quality and functional clothing line (thank goodness)!
I was looking for a mid to heavy weight fleece for the cold winters we have here in the high desert. This jacket really hit the spot. It's very breathable and warm, which I love. The fit is great: not to tight, not to lose, sleeves are the perfect length. Patagonia makes awesome products, and this is no exception.
