The Patagonia Men's Better Sweater Vest is a fleece vest for transitioning into crisper, cooler weather. Polyester fleece wraps the core in warmth, while the sweater-like outside lends a cozy look from everyday life to outdoor adventures up at the cabin. Pair with a t-shirt, long sleeved or short, and even pull a shell over top in worsening weather. Three zippered pockets keep valuables close and at the ready.

Products on Sale are Discontinued Styles or Colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! Bought it for my boyfriend, and he loves it! Looks casual but stylish at the same time, and is very warm but not inconveniently heavy to wear or carry around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and great material! I bought this a month ago and I wore it to work everyday until it warmed up. It fits great. Patagonia runs a little small in general, but this fits very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BA vest! I have a couple of these better sweater vests but this one I got from MooseJaw seems to be MUCH more awesome. Call me crazy, but these betters are fabulous for all seasons.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks great Got a great price, only color available was Dark Walnut, it will match almost anything & wasn’t disappointed. I’m 6’ 1” & 184 lbs, glad I got the medium as snug in a vest for me is preferred; wasn’t tight or restrictive. Quality looks good and quite stylish. However, I will not know about reported concerns with pilling until a couple of washes. Bought this for traveling and will not use it until this Fall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfort beyond expectations! First read about how detrimental regular fleece is for the environment from Patagonia years ago so, when the time came to buy another vest for work, I checked to see if these guys had made any strides in coming up with a better product. And I must say they have! You can read all about the technology in the product description. Personally, I must say, it fit really well and yet allowed me to wear a sweatshirt underneath without feeling too tight. I bought a "small" which is my true size (with Patagonia tops anyway). It is lightweight and yet was adequately warm, I felt so comfortable in it that I actually forgot I had it on. Seriously! It's also quite stylish and have been wearing it outside of work as well. The only drawback I find is when I wear it at work, my repeated work-related movements caused the material on the vest to pill underneath the armpit area and if I have an abrasive piece of clothing of a contrasting color to the vest, the pilling becomes visible. If I needed another, I would certainly consider buying the same in a different color because it is SO comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and Practical It is perfect for those chilly fall and spring days. It looks good and is well made. You can dress up or down an outfit. And oh so comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit, great value! I purchased this Better Sweater vest for my husband as a gift. He's been wanting a nice vest for a while, and has complimented my Better Sweater quarter zip before, so I figured a Better Sweater vest would be great for him! He loves the color and fit. He can dress it up or down. The material is durable, the quality is great, and I'm confident the product will last a long time!
