Product Description Item No.   10281555

The Patagonia Women's Better Sweater Jacket is a technical fleece under the disguise of a regular, cozy sweater. Anything but regular, this slim fit jacket is warm and toasty for layering up against the cold weather. Bounce from town to town, trail to trail in a woolly look, just unzip the full length zipper when you get a little too warm. Zippered pockets at the hands, a sleeve pocket to hold onto your grocery list and drop pockets at the interior, where I personally like to store my wallet.

Products on Sale are Discontinued Styles or Colors.

Durable Water Repellant
DWR (Durable Water Repellent) is a coating that is applied to fabrics which makes them water-resistant, or hydrophobic. A DWR finish doesn't interfere with breathability, which makes it perfect for adverse conditions in the backcountry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit! I bought this jacket years ago in purple and loved it so much I bought a second one in green. I also have the vest version in black. Well made, flattering cut, and perfect for fall, winter, and spring. Works well when layering or can wear on its own. True to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect jacket I bought this jacket for my 14 yo daughter and she loves it. It goes with anything. She can wear it to school or church. Runs a bit small like all Better Sweaters. It adds warmth without bulk.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from warm and stylish Love this sweater. Keeps me warm and has a great style. So far has held up to a few hikes and casual wear. 5'8", 130lbs ordered a small. Usually with Patagonia I will get small or medium. Small was better for this

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE! I love this jacket. It's light weight, yet still very warm. The fit is perfect. I was worried it might be a little wide but the sides actually tailor in so it's really flattering on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The sweater is better... It is the perfect jacket/sweater... and I got the raspberry color and i love it! I will wear it everyday in the fall, winter and spring! I will not be wearing in the summer... it would be way to hot!!! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great investment! I bought this a month ago and I cannot believe that I didn’t get this jacket sooner. It is perfect for layering. Though I think it isn’t extremely warm, I think it is definitely a good jacket to wear when it’s windy. I do think it is snug so I recommend sizing up if you want a slightly loose fit. Otherwise, true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and warm! I bought this jacket in the Pelican color about one month ago and was able to wear it several times before warmer weather hit. Perfect for outdoors on chilly days and overall very flattering. I was expecting the fit to be a bit more slim, but like having a tad bit more room. Look forward to wearing this next fall! The color is a blend of tan, gray, and cream--nice neutral alternative to the gray!

What is the temperature range for this sweater jacket?

Asked by: Carol
Hey Carol! I'd wear this on a cool morning (roughly 45 degrees) to go run errands. Or it does really well on a chilly night at a campfire. But it doesn't really rate so much as a jacket in those temperatures for a prolonged period or if you aren't active. So, it's OK in the 40s if you are moving or near a bonfire, better in the 50's and you can withstand the temp for longer even if you are stationary.

does this item shrink when washed or after the dryer?

Asked by: baes
Hiya baes, thanks for your question! We don't recommend putting the Better Sweater in the dryer. It will shrink and the material might pill. Instead, lay the garment flat to dry. It should be fine in the washing machine, as long as you follow the washing instructions. Hope this helps!

I am 5’0, 100 lbs and wondering what size I should order.  Thanks

Asked by: Peanut4240
Hiya Peanut4240, thanks for your question! Based on your description, I would recommend size XS. Check out the size guide to see the suggested measurements for that size. There is a link to a size guide located under the drop down size menu. Hope this helps!

I would like to know when the sweater in `Pelican`, size medium will be available. Thanks!

Asked by: sunlight
Thanks for the question! Unfortunately, we do not have access to when/ if more sizes & colors will be back in stock. My best suggestion is to keep checking back as we do update the site every night. Sorry I don't have a more exact answer :(
