I am in love with the look and feel of the product. I purchased this in raw linen and it is exactly as pictured. It is incredibly soft and cozy, however, it does fit a little more snug than I'd expected. I recently purchased the Patagonia women's Retool Snap T Pullover which is also stated to be slim fit, and I ordered it in the same size, but it fits much more loose and comfy on me than this Better Sweater Pullover. Without thinking, I pulled the tag off so I ended up keeping it, but I am only able to wear a thin shirt underneath. I originally purchased hoping I would be able to wear over my scrub top at work (with a thin undershirt underneath), but it was entirely too tight for this. The chest and arms seem to be where it feels tightest. For reference, I purchased a medium (would have been better in a large) and I am 5' 4", 140 lb, 34 D.
Amazing warmth, very comfortable. I have to say that this sweater is definitely fashionable yet casual enough to wear multiple places--I can wear it to work on business casual days, but can also wear it hiking or even just to the local farmer's market. It's not super stretchy in any sense, but the inside fleece is incredibly soft and the arm pocket is just the right size for keys and an ID. Downside? It does seem to be tighter along the body than the zippered version, so if you're borderline between sizes I'd say go up. I've also heard rumors of pilling, but haven't had that happen to mine yet. Otherwise an all-around great product!
I bought this sweater two winters ago and it's still as good as new! I'm 5'9" and weigh 140 and the Medium fits great. I have another one in the small and it's a little too snug. This sweater is classic and will never go out of style
So I love this sweater. It looks clean and put-together. I love the heathered look of the raw linen color.I first ordered this in a small since that's the size of my Patagonia Re-tool snap pullover, but I returned it and reordered it in medium because the arms and overall fit were much tighter than the re-tool sweater.
I bought this sweater for my 17-year-old daughter and she is absolutely crazy over it. I'm sure I will be purchasing more for my other 2 daughters since they have already been stealing it to wear. I like to order up a size in Patagonia since my teenager girls like to wear loose fitting sweaters. You can't go wrong with this beautiful, comfy pullover sweater!
I really love this sweater. It is very comfortable and it fits very well! It's great to wear on those lazy Saturdays! I ordered a size up so it would not be tight fitting, and I'm glad I did! I'm sure I will be ordering more in the future.
I have quite a few Patagonia products and this is my favorite purchase thus far! I have a lot of trouble with sweaters, they always make me itch! It drives me crazy. This is great because it looks like a sweater on the outside with nice soft fleece inside. Super warm too. I am 115 lbs and got a size small. I'm 5'7 and the sleeves are the perfect length, but my mom is about 5'2 and the sleeves are quite long on her. I love the fit, its nice and tailored. however If you want a more relaxed fit I would size up. Overall great product. I'm super impressed.
