I was honestly a little skeptical about buying this jacket. I usually love Patagonia products, but this one seemed a little overpriced. When I tried this style on in the store the arms were a little to long for me, (I wear a medium and am about 5'5''), but when I received the jacket in the mail it fit perfectly! I love the zipper pocket on the left arm and it is very soft and versatile. With the 20% off sale I couldn't pass off this amazing deal!
"Best warm, semi-wind resistant lightweight fleece I've found in a while!"
The "sweater" is great because its light enough that you can wear it in spring or even summer nights, or layer under stuff during winter, but its totally effective about keeping you warm (so if I'm wearing it to walk to work I'm warm and i can wear it open on the walk home and now be sweating like crazy). My only qualm is the sizing, I have a few other Patagonia fleece items that all ran small, I ordered a small for this Better Sweater and it seems bigger for some reason.
My mom bought me this for Christmas and at first I didn't think I would like it because I don't tend to like things I can't wear hiking but I ended up loving it. I can look very professional and put together without sacrificing comfort. I have the red and I constantly get compliments on it.
My first Better Sweater Product and the name says it all. Instead of putting on a bulky sweater for warmth, just put on this amazing Patagonia product! Its lightweight, but keeps you super warm. I particularly like the pockets on the jacket (two for hands and one on the sleeve) because they all have little zippers. So, if you are active and are going from one thing to the next, you don't have to worry about anything falling out of your pocket... i.e. phones, keys, credit cards, money, etc. It can be worn on an everyday basis, as well as something nicer. I have traveled overseas in this jacket and so glad I brought it because of its simplicity and versatility. I have it in a speckled grey color in L (5'8, 160 lbs & a larger chest) and it works with about anything I choose to wear. The lining on the inside is super soft as well. I highly recommend this product for yourself or if you are looking for a gift for someone else, you've clicked the right item. You'll be the best gift-giver!
This sweater is super awesome. I got the bear brown and wear it with matching boots and a big brown leather bag. Totally Pinteresty. You want to be careful to make sure you layer a shirt underneath, because if it's at all warm inside, you will get too hot. It's great to wear to the grocery store and not have to wear a big bulky coat. I'm 5'8" 130 lbs and the small fits very flattering. I get tons of compliments on it. I might want the light grey one too.
"Just bought my second better sweater- its worth it"
Absolutely love this product. Well worth the cost. This fleece seems light weight but can be worn alone on a chilly day or as a base layer. It's comfortable, holds up in washes, and I ALWAYS get a compliment on it. It's a great fleece to wear to literally anything. If you're on the edge of purchasing one.. do it. Moosejaw is always fast with shipments, youll probs get it in a couple days and be happy you bought it.
This is the perfect fleece. Seriously. It's cozy and great for layering, looks good on! I love mine anytime it gets chilly in the fall here, and for up under my down jacket during frigid temps. Based on other reviews, I've been dry-cleaning mine to preserve it for longer which has kept it in mint condition.I'm 5'6" and 130 lbs with long arms and the medium fits me great. I got the offwhite color (sand or winter storm or whatever they're calling it) and love the color- not too bright of a white.
This jacket is the best. Fits perfectly. It's not big and bulky. You almost forget you're wearing a coat. Sometimes I'll end up wearing it all day and not even realize it. Perfect for fall and spring. Size is pretty normal. Fitted, but not too tight. I'm 5'3" and 125 lbs. and I got a small.
(purchased as a gift) This jacket is very warm and well built. It fits well and is somewhat true to size (smaller side of the sizes). I love Patagonia products, you cant go wrong with them (other than shitty color schemes and some really really bad retro 70s/80s ski gear, which is still bomb proof even if it is ugly.......so stear clear of that and you will be fine) and they have a great reputation traceable down and ethical practices etc.
bought this fleece for my wife last christmas and when she opened the package, she immediately fell in love. Now fast forward to this christmas, she still wears her better sweater every day. - See more at: http://www.moosejaw.com/moosejaw/shop/product_Patagonia-Women-s-Better-Sweater-Jacket_10096403_10208_10000001_-1_#sthash.f0f2enGS.dpuf
I bought this fleece for my wife last christmas and when she opened the package, she immediately fell in love. Now fast forward to this christmas, she still wears her better sweater every day. I bought it in black so she can wear it to work and she can wear it around the house. It works both as something to lounge in around the house as well as something to go out on dates with. I will be purchasing another one this year, but this time for ME.
