The Patagonia Women's Better Sweater 1/4 Zip is a sweater knit fleece that looks good without backing down when it comes to warmth. Walking down the street your best friend will be instantly jealous of your pullover, with it's fashionable knitted cross-dye and heat-releasing quarter zip neck. What that friend doesn't know is the inside is fleece, soft against the skin, warm, and even wicks moisture to keep you comfortable on a hike through the park. The slim fit allows you to pull it over a t-shirt without any extra bulk and a single pocket on the left sleeve is a handy spot for credit card, ID, and a few piece of candy to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So comfy! Bought the Better Sweater a few weeks ago and have been trying to wear it as much as I can, so perfect for chilly fall mornings and nights. Haven't gotten the chance to wear it in the winter, but I'm sure I will often. It's beyond warm and cozy, insulates well. The only issue is that it runs kind of small. I always wear medium in everything- not too tight not too baggy. But I got a medium is the Patagonia Better Sweater and I'm finding it hard to layer anything other than a tank top. I suggest go a size up if you plan on wearing anything under it! Otherwise, great purchase. 100% worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was hoping for I bought one for myself about a month ago after borrowing my friend's 1/4 zip on an unexpectedly chilly day at Bryce Canyon. I have always liked the way this better sweater looks, but I was really surprised by how lightweight and warm it is. I have owned the re-tool snap T pullover for years, but this one seems to keep me warmer on windy days. It's a great lightweight option for hiking (not too bulky under backpacks) or an extra layer to keep you warm on runs. The fit is more snug than the snap pullover, but still true to size, so keep that in mind when shopping. Overall I'm really happy with this purchase, especially with the summer sale pricing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Women's Patagonia Women's Better Sweater 1/4 Zip I bought this item in the light purple. It arrived very quickly, after speaking to an awesome customer service person at the company who placed a phone order for me. I almost ordered the XS, but decided I wanted a little more room, so I went for the S. I love this sweater, but it doesn't have a lot of "give" and I was hoping for the back side to be just a little longer than the front to cover a bit more "back there". I am 5'2, 115 pounds and petite. I did receive compliments on the color and it really keeps me warm as I live in Minnesota. I kept it, but I think I'd actually order a M next time so it could serve as more of a jacket for layering.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super comfy and extra warm I originally ordered the small after trying on the medium and wanting a slightly slimmer fit. The small was very tight to the point it wasn't comfortable so I ordered the medium and it fits very comfortably and doesn't look sloppy, I'm 5'8 and about 145. Moosejaw sent me the ivory color instead of the heather grey the second time which is a different issue, but I had been looking at both and ended up keeping the ivory even though I'm worried about getting it dirty (it already has some slight things showing up on the sleeve hem and shows up dog hair pretty quickly). But all in all its a very comfortable and cute pullover, the arm pocket is nice since the men's chest pocket doesn't fall very well on the fun bags. It's also surprisingly warm for a relatively thin mid layer and has some wind protection if you're wearing it alone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket! My daughter loves her jacket! Heads up,it is a slim fit design so if you want it to fit you just right get your normal size, if you want it to be a little big and have room for maybe a sweater underneath definitely size up! We had to exchange for bigger size and it was a simple process. We were even upgradedo to 3 day shipping for our exchange item. Great service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE! LOVE this patagonia! I wear it all the time! I can wear it and be very comfortable, yet still look put together - not sloppy like a regular sweatshirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cozy Sweatshirt This is the second Better Sweater I have ordered. I ordered my first as a full zip. I've had my eye on the Ultramarine 1/4 zip for a while now. When it went on sale I couldn't resist. I'm glad I purchased it. I did get a size up and I wish I hadn't. I was told they run small, but I believe they are true to size. If you're looking for a great cozy sweatshirt, while still having style, this is your sweatshirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super warm. I bought this sweater in industrial green a couple weeks ago and I've already worn it a ton. It is super warm and cozy and works great as a mid-layer. Love that the collar flips up pretty far to block out the cold. I am 105lbs and 5'1 and ordered an XS as that is what I usually wear in Patagonia. It would fit perfectly but I am a little broad in the shoulders. I kept it as I wanted to use it as a mid-layer and would rather it be a tad snug than too big. Would definitely recommend.
