Protect the ocean so it can protect us

Our future is tied to the ocean. Its shared seas connect us through food, culture and sport. The home of amazing, abundant life, it’s also a powerful climate solution. Yet the practice of bottom trawling threatens to destroy this precious resource—bulldozing our ocean floor, undermining small-scale fisheries and deepening the climate crisis. Let's end this destructive practice, starting with an immediate ban in marine protected areas and inshore zones.

Kids Better Sweater™ jacket

February 17, 2023

Great for Petite Women

I am 5ft 3in, 110 lbs. I wanted a better sweater with a straight cut fit, not fitted like the womens version. XL is the perfect fit! I have room in the body to layer, the sleeves are the perfect length. I first ordered XXL, but the sleeves were way too long. I am really pleased with the kids size.

Great product!

I am petite, 128 lbs and 5 ft tall size XXL kids was perfect. I wish Patagonia made petite products

Warm and Comfortable

My daughter (10) and I run on the cool side while skiing and while out for outdoor winter fun. We both have the better sweater and it keeps us perfectly warm. My daughter like that it is soft and the fit. She is slender and a lot of fleeces are boxy on her, this one fits nicely. We will continue to buy them... and bought one for my 4 year old son f...

Great Sweater!

I am a small adult female - (5 feet tall, 98 pounds). I ordered the boys better sweater pullover in both XL and XXL. The XXL was just a little too big - arms were just a tad too long. I like the fit of the boys XL Better Sweater Pullover over than fit of the womens XS Better Sweater Pullover because the Womens is a slim fit, which I find uncomforta... Read Moreble. Plus, the added savings is nice! Ive tried the girls XL as well - and they are nice too, but I tend to like the darker colors in the boys sizes. The only thing I would change would be to add a front pocket or some side pockets. I keep reaching for pockets that arent. there!

Kid very happy

Bought item for a thin 8 year old. Thought it might be too small. Fortunately the boy loved it, it fitted perfectly, and he was very happy. the next size up for kids appeared too large.

Middle school approved

My 13yr old son loves these. He wears them everyday - as outerwear in the fall/spring and as a sweater in the winter.

Great jacket sadly co-opted by finance and tech bros

I have been buying this jacket for my kid for years. Its an awesome jacket. Comfy, warm, easy to wear. Sadly, this year I will be returning it bc I dont want my 7 yo to look like a tech / finance bro.

My Son Loves It!

My son is loving this jacket. Super warm and comfortable. Great quality and just the right thickness. We use this jacket for school and play and it's been perfect.

Perfect for cold weather days

Nothing keeps my boys warmer than the Better Sweater. We purchased a small for my sox year old, knowing it would run slightly large. But what I love most is that he has this now, will have it next year and it will eventually pass onto his brother and from there family friends. The quality stands the test of time! I am never sorry with my Patagonia ... Read Morepurchases.

Great sweater

Bought this sweater for my two boys and they absolutely love it. It looks great, fits great for my tall, slim boys, and they say it is very cozy.

Best mid-layer

My son LOVES his better sweater, which is why we purchased the second one, this time in green.

Got this for my 6 year old nephew and don’t regret a thing! Looks, feels, and is exactly like the adult better sweater. Great quality product that has this far taken the abuse of a highly active 6 year old.

Perfect fit for a small guy

So, in light of it being transgender awareness week I'll include this in my review. I'm a 37 year old trans guy and constantly have a hard time finding clothes that fit me without getting custom tailored shirts and jackets. The XXL boys size fits me perfectly and with the Patagonia guarantee I feel like this is where I will get all of my ... Read Moreclothes from now on. I can't express how freeing it is to have something look like it was made for me and not be baggy or awkward. Thank you!!!

Review of Boys Sweater jacket

My 11 yr. old son loves his new jacket. We wanted to switch up from the typical fleece jacket- My son loves the navy color, the fit, and comfort of the jacket. It’s perfect for the fall into winter season..

boy's sweater transitions well to winter

we buy this jacket for my son every year. It is perfect to transition in fall and spring in Cleveland. He's 6 years old, 80# and it fits great.
