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.

Ws Retro Pile Marsupial

Kinda Large
November 29, 2023

Retro pile marsuptial

Over the years, I have bought several retro marsupials.I still have them all and use them. The current edition is a fine new generation. Wondertul quality, fleece has less pill then one I purchased 2-3 years ago. Two observations about Patagonia products have evolved: --The fit is less generous in the hips (fine at age 55 five, less good twenty yea... Read Morers later). --Colors are liess vivid. Assume that is to avoid synthetic dyes. I'm OK with that, but sure do miss a color pop once in a while.

November 29, 2023

Very cozy and warm

Amazing product, feels very soft and warm.

November 29, 2023

Very warm

I chose runs kind of large, but I also have one in a size small and both fit nicely. Not too big, not too small. Its both nice and unusual too have both sizes fit well. Usually xs is too small or it fits, and then small feels super big. Aside from the size, I love this sweatshirt, I have 4 of them, along with other Patagonia sweatshirts. The qualit... Read Morey is great, they look great and I would buy every product they have if I could. I probably will over time, actually.

November 27, 2023

Looks Great Fits Perfectly

Gave the item as a gift and the recipient loves it.

November 25, 2023

Beautiful design High quality

Beautiful design and high quality

November 23, 2023

Love it! A little bit

Love it! A little bit big on size but warmer and amazing

November 16, 2023

Super Comfy and Warm

I have this in two colours now. Great for colder weather. I sized up for extra comfort.

November 14, 2023

Love it

Soft and warm, maybe a little large in the shoulders.

November 12, 2023

Love this Fleece!

This is becoming my new winter favorite fleece. Very warm and comfortable. Love all the pockets!

November 9, 2023

Stiff and no stretch

Unfortunately returned as it didn’t feel as good quality as previous Patagonia fleeces. It was stiff and difficult to get on and off (despite it being the correct size once on).

November 6, 2023

Love this sweater

I am a fan of the navy, it looks really cute and not to mention very comfortable. It also matches great with jeans. Although its light, its very very warm. Would definitely recommend.

November 4, 2023

Super Warm, Great Pockets

This is a great product; very warm, easy to put on with longer zipper. It has marsupial style pockets, which I'm a great fan of. It's not cut as long as some of the other fleece, but it's just long enough. I wear it almost every day.

November 3, 2023

Very comfortable and trendy color

I love retro pile marsupial! It's cozy and comfortable. Not too thick or thin. Can be worn alone or layer onto it. Fit was great. I got the color on sale (brown with pink accent). I was suspicious at first, but the colors look nice in person, and compliment my skin tone!

November 1, 2023

Perfect fleece

Great item, versatile and true to size. Warm and cozy with nice design.

October 31, 2023

Really nice!

I bought this jacket in the cream color for my daughters birthday. She wanted it a little roomy, so I ordered the medium, and its perfect!

October 31, 2023


Was eyeing this for a long time and so glad I bought it for a recent hike. I love how practical and warm it is while also looking cute! Bought it in Dusky Brown and it's gorgeous

October 30, 2023

It is so nice and cozy and I love the color!

This is such a warm and comfy pullover and it will be perfect for being outside in the next month or so. The color is perfect and I love the pop of pink!

October 12, 2023

Super Warm

Perfect size, really warm, nice quality, great color. I love it !

October 11, 2023

Love it!

Im a huge fan of the marsupial pockets in general, and these pockets even zip. The fit is perfect for me, room for a regular shirt underneath. The length is also perfect - everything covered and warm. The fleece is very warm.

October 11, 2023

The fit is a bit

The fit is a bit wierd. It would be a biit larger for an M But overall it's very nice and very compfy.

October 1, 2023

A gift for my girlfriend.

A gift for my girlfriend. And she was very pleased with the fit, material and look.

September 16, 2023

A cosy bundle of warmth

Great for really cold days - it is like wrapping yourself in a bundle of fur.

September 15, 2023

Great for nursing moms

Got this fleece for fall hiking with my newborn hoping the zipper would be low enough to make nursing on the trail easier - and it has been perfect so far! So cozy and practical.

September 4, 2023

Favorite Fleece!

Patagonia does it again with another super cozy fleece!

August 27, 2023

My Retro Pile Marsupial

A beautiful fleece - cosy and good looking.

June 8, 2023

Love, Love, Love!

I originally ordered this in a SM which is standard size for me in Patagonia but it was way too boxy. I just loved the color brown (DUBN) so much but sent it back....a few months later I saw it again and decided to order in XS and it is absolutely perfect!

April 17, 2023

Super Warm and Comfortable!

I really love this fleece. It fits on the smaller side, which I like because it is not too oversized and does not look boxy. It does not shed. Super warm!

March 29, 2023

Looks great!

I wore this jacket for a day of snow-play with family. Kept me warm and cozy all day!!

March 25, 2023

True to size

The fit is true to size . I am 64 inches tall and 150lbs. Jacket is very warm.

February 25, 2023

Love it

I absolutely love it . I love the fit, it is very comfortable and warm. It is a must have. It is true to size.

February 23, 2023

Good Looking Pullovee

I am so impressed with the cut and practicality of this fleece. It easy on and off, has a secure zippered pouch/pocket in front, looks great on, is so comfortable and is wearing very well. Thinking Id better order another. Im 5ft 9in and 132 lbs - the medium fits perfectly.

February 21, 2023

Cool fleece, wanted to love it

But the fit was huge! Really wide in the body. I like my clothes baggy but this was too baggy. I wear women's L in all other Patagonia products that I own.

Super Warm!

This pullover fits great and is super warm. So warm I can skip a coat over the top even when temps are below freezing. A bit too warm to wear in the office but great for bumming around outside.

February 5, 2023

Warm, but returned it

I got this pullover as I have other Patagonia fleece jackets. I liked it however the material of the marsupial pocket seems like it would tear. The waist hem was also very tight. I wear XS in Patagonia so it seemed weird to me it was so tight. The right sleeve at the shoulder seemed larger than the left. The color was nice, but. not flattering for ... Read Moremy skin tone. Unfortunately, I returned it. For the price you pay for Patagonia it should be perfect fit.

February 4, 2023

Its fine when in but

Its fine when in but difficult to take off. So if Im in snd out, and want to remove it, Id prefer a full zip

February 3, 2023

Poor quality!!!

For casual wear, this fleece pills and sheds sooooo much. Everywhere in my house are the fuzz balls that fall off the fleece. Plus, you can only imagine how many nano particles are entering our waters after each wash. My dryer lint filter is always full of this fleece lint after washing. I usually wear a small, but opted for the medium this time bc... Read More these are hard to put on, however, this one does have a better, deeper neck zipper, so is easier to pull over. Im worried the elbows are going to wear thin in no time.

Hey Chris, thank you for the review. We're very sorry to hear about the excessive shedding you've experienced with this fleece.

February 1, 2023

Very Warm

Great pullover. Super warm. It would however be great if Patagonia would standardize sizes. I have several re-tool snap-t pullovers in the same size as the retro but the retro is larger in the shoulders and body.

I want to love it

Purchased this in the Santa Cruz Outlet store during the 40% off sale, I usually wear a small or medium but I went with a large for the oversize look. I was happy to purchase it but I ended up having to return it. The style is classic but I noticed significant gaps between threads on the material, it became quite hard to ignore. I thought those loo... Read Morese knitting are made to vent and make the jacket more breathable. After wearing it for half a day, I found the fleece material everywhere on my pants, seatbelt and purse. The fleece can be easily pulled or rubbed off when the jacket contact with other materials. It is such a shame because I truly do love the jacket, it is soft and comfortable, I just wish the quality of this jacket is as good as how Patagonia used to be.

January 30, 2023

Absolutely Love

I absolutely love this pullover! The fit, color and it does keep you warm. This Retro Pile Fleece Pullover is a lot softer than you think! I will order another one in a different color! I wear for work and every day.

January 28, 2023

Great everyday Pull over

I had bought this pullover for my girlfriend and she uses it everyday, it provides great warmth without being overly hot. It's a very light pullover so easy to take anywhere. Also to add easy to clean!

January 24, 2023

Just Perfect

Love it! A little loose, but in a good way.

January 23, 2023

So comfortable!

I love this pullover! It's stylish, soft, comfortable and keeps me warm! The pockets are so functional, especially the middle pocket with zipper. LOVE!

January 8, 2023

Super Marsupial

We ordered this pullover for our college student daughter for Christmas and she loves it! Cozy, toasty-warm and still very light weight, it's perfect for layering.

January 4, 2023

Best Hiking Friend

Love it. Very warm, breathable, roomy - great look with the textured fleece. The neck fits just right - some fleece jackets are too tight, but not this one. One quibble: the pouch is lined with a flimsy t-shirt thin poly material - not exactly cozy and feels kind of unpleasant. It should be lined with similar, thick fleece material as the rest of t... Read Morehe pullover for comfort. Also, suggestion: next year, can you ditch the two tone look for the "natural" color? Just *100%* natural and not a contrast blue or contrast anything would be excellent. That way it goes with everything and is easier on the eyes.

December 27, 2022

So warm and toasty

I was pondering for a while whether to get this, but I am so glad I did. Definitely need it this winter as it has kept me cosy and toasty, I love it. You can feel and see the quality of the product, so pleased with it. Hoping it will last me for a long long time 😊

Sharp Coziness The flattering fit

Sharp Coziness The flattering fit of this pullover lets me work and play in comfort and ease. I love the perfect neutral shade of gray along with the textured look of the retro pile fleece. My favorite detail: the acid green grosgrain ribbon zipper tabs which give this top an unexpected style punch.

December 26, 2022

Soft and super warm

My daughter wanted this oversized and adores it. She put it on after receiving it yesterday. The size was chosen large for her but she loves it. A huge hit!

Nice But Wrong Color

I ordered the Dusky Brown color and it was purple/lavender color (not a pinkish brown) Nice fleece otherwise. The color needs to be edited to match better.

Bought this for my daughter for her trip to Italy. She is very pleased with the fit and quality. Has worn it in the slightly chilly evens while walking the streets of the cities of Italy !

October 31, 2022

So soft and cozy!

This pullover is deliciously soft and warm. I love the kangaroo pocket on the front, it is the perfect size to stow my phone and keys and to keep my hands warm. Its nice quality and feels like it will last a long time.

October 31, 2022

So comfortable and warm!

I love this fleece! It is probably my new favorite. Its super snuggly and fits perfect. It is great for layering something underneath. The kangaroo pouch is the best ! I love having somewhere to put my hands or hold my phone. I may need to order a second.

Very Cozy Everyday Wear

This is super cozy and I wore it nonstop for several days until we had some windy weather and then I was freezing. This is not windproof, which is fine, just add a base layer, but I didn't realize how porous the material was until the wind started blowing. Oh, well. Otherwise, super snuggly and I really like it.

Falls Apart Quickly

The second time wearing this I noticed wholes in sleeves near the wrist. The stitching was coming undone creating the wholes and I was really disappointed because I did like like this fleece but knew it was made poorly or mine was faulty.

October 12, 2022

Super Cozy

I love this fleece. Wear it to walk the dog in the Am, on wfh days, when I change into comfy clothes at the end of non-wfh days. I wear it ALL the time. I would really give this 4.7 stars, but that's not an option, I very much wish the neck was just a little bit taller. I wanted the pockets though (for poop bags and everything else), so opted ... Read Morefor this knowing I wanted a higher neck. Also, on chilly mornings (50-60, def need to layer, just a t-shirt underneath leaves me chilled, put a long sleeve layer on too and it's perfect). I do not wear this for running as I fear the stink would never come out (previous fleece experience).

October 11, 2022

So cozy

I love this pullover. Its like wearing a soft, cuddly blanket everywhere I go. Kangaroo pocket is amazing . I would never buy a pullover without pockets! These keep my hands warm outside on the pool deck . Would definitely recommend!

October 9, 2022


I was pleasantly surprised at just how soft and cozy it is. Its perfect with Ugg boots for cold nights outside or mornings with tea

September 30, 2022

Fantastic Overall - only one tiny issue!

I love everything about this fleece - its warmth, fit, color - except that the hard edge of the zipper is exposed and bites into the soft skin under my neck when I zip it all the way up. I wish Patagonia had covered up the zipper corners with a little bit of fleece! I'm going to have to find a way to do it myself, since otherwise the full zip ... Read Moreis warm but uncomfortable.

Love love love this jumper

So comfortable and looks great in a retro Patagonia kind of way. I am a UK size 8 and went for a medium so that it’s a bit roomy and provides a bit of coverage when wearing with leggings. Would definitely recommend for walks/lounging

I feel like a teddy bear wearing it, so good.

A lovely soft, warm and cosy top

August 8, 2022


I got mine as a gift a couple years back and it has been a go to for my adventures. Kept me perfectly dry and warm skiing Mammoth in the fall and camping in the (surprise) summer rain. Such a versatile piece. The medium is a bit oversized on me (5ft 4in) but I like it for layering:)

May 11, 2022

Cozy and comfortable

I love this way better than all my other fleeces! The giant pocket (with zippers!) is great. Its warm but not too stuffy/hot when I get warmer, because the midline zipper goes down pretty far. I went with the medium because thats what my synchilla snap-Ts arebut this is more flattering on me than those are!

May 9, 2022

Very comfortable & warm.

A true to size fit. Well made product. Very happy with purchase!

May 8, 2022

Zipper not finished

Love this fleece! My only complaint is that I cannot wear it with the zipper all the way closed. The raw zipper edges are very sharp and cut into my neck/chin. I am a little surprised because Patagonia usually is so good with these kinds of details.

May 7, 2022

So yummy and cozy!

Its a yummy, warm, teddy bear like sweater. I love the marsupial pockets. No cons for me!

May 6, 2022


I prefer my sweaters to be half zip for a variety of ways to wear my luxurious sweater. I purchased in all 3 colors. I also like to wear XL to layer my looks depending on where Im traveling.

April 29, 2022

Love this fleece

While the fit is a little bit snug, I love this fleece. The weight is far superior to the Patagonia lightweight version I have. Great product!

April 29, 2022

Cute but comes apart :(

I am now on my third retro pile fleece in 3 years. It's my favorite color and fit (the khaki), so I won't give up on it. The first one I bought, the elastic around the sleeve came apart within just a couple of months. They replaced it for free because it was under a year. The second one, the elastic on both sleeves started coming apart ag... Read Moreain, and also the inside of the pocket lining came apart from the fleece. I returned that and got a credit for about half because it was a little over a year later. I appreciate Patagonia and their return policy, but this seems to be an issue with this specific fleece, my other Patagonia fleeces and jackets don't do this. When I get the third one, I am probably going to reinforce the sleeves myself before they can pull apart.

April 29, 2022

A great purchase

This sweater is amazing because its great quality, comfy, warm and just looks great!

April 19, 2022

And I'm obsessed

I love this more than I thought it would...I originally just wanted something in this color (abalone blue), but also something cozy. After reading the reviews that this seems to run a bit large, I ordered a small which fits perfectly (I'd say it's more like a standard medium in other brands). This thing is so darn cozy and I haven't... Read More experienced any shedding or issues. Really really happy with my purchase and thinking of getting more of this style in other colors.

April 15, 2022


I do really like this fleece however after a couple months of wear the lining in the sleeve has worn and left a hole, it also balled after a washing it a couple of times. Other than that its really comfortable and I love the colour

April 13, 2022


Love the color, fit, feel, everything about it. The big pockets that zip are great too. Its perfect for what I was looking for.

March 27, 2022

Love my Retro pile fleece

The light blue pretty color and I get many compliments. Had originally ordered a size small (5' 102 lbs) but way to big and the XS fits perfectly with an extra layer underneath if needed. Cozy, warm and would highly recommend!

March 25, 2022

Love to layer it up for life in South Dakota

I still have my first Patagonia fleece from 1990s. Quality I love and expect from Patagonia.

March 15, 2022

Super warm alone for spring days or layer!

I love everything about this item! Color is great and washes nicely! Fits a bit loose on me but I dont like clingy clothing! Can layer it! Very warm! True to my sizing! But I always buy medium unless its unisex sizing!

March 15, 2022

Felt like cheap fabric that would not wear well.

I bought it mainly for the color, but hoped I would like the "retro" fabric as well. But as other reviewers have mentioned, it seemed like the pile would get matted with washing, and the lining of the marsupial pocket seemed really cheap. I got a large size because it was the only one left, but I sent it back.

March 3, 2022

To say Im obsessed would be an understatement

I am so happy with this purchase. It is my first time every buying Patagonia after wishing to for years and Im so glad this is the style I went with. I really hope they come back with more colors because I will definitely be buying more. I am 511 150lbs and the XL fit perfect. The arms were actually long enough!

February 23, 2022

Super warm, comfortable and stylish

This jumper is great, it washes really well. The colour is a really nice shade, the pile is soft, the fabric is lightweight yet keeps you warm. It has perfect mix of pockets, it's well made and has been worn lots so far.

February 17, 2022

So many pockets

I love all the zipper pockets and the sherpa like exterior, I sized up to wear it looser. The large fits extremely big but I enjoy the look and comfort. I am not a big fan of the arms not being fitted but overall satisfied with my purchase.

February 16, 2022

Nice to Wear Casually Around or to Layer When Snowboarding

This pull over is super soft, cozy, and light. It serves as a warm thermal layer when under a jacket and keeps you warm when wearing around running errands.

February 11, 2022

super cosy

This purchase was a great choice ; super comfy and cosy.

The coziest pullover I own!

I havent taken this off since it arrived! The perfect fleece for all day wear during these freezing Midwest winters! I got a medium and its roomy, with room for layering, just like I wanted! Washes well. Is so so soft. Im 53, 145lbs. 10/10 recommend!

January 26, 2022

Love the style, the fit, the color! I feel it is the best purchase of the season! Thank you!

January 23, 2022

Comfy Cozy

I have serval Patagonia Better Sweaters and decided I wanted something just as warm and comfortable. This Retro Marsupial is perfect.

January 15, 2022

Weird fit

I was super in love with this color and went to REI to try one on in person. The fit was weird. Loved the length, but the torso was boxy, and the sleeves were short. The sleeves also hit low towards my boob area rather than higher towards my arm pit. Overall it was a strange fit that just looked bad. Im really disappointed. Patagonia use to have su... Read Morech flattering cuts. I dont know what happened, but can you PLEASE fix the fit issue?

January 12, 2022

Very nice pile!

Warmer than the synchilla, i love the retro look. Fit comfortable on the chest and a little tight on the wrists. I use it mostly for trekking and at home.

January 11, 2022

One of my favorites

Love this, its the perfect fit.

January 6, 2022

Cute but pills

I got this fleece just beige Christmas. I love the look, fit and weight of it. Cozy, cute and warm. But Ive worn 3-4 times, washed once, its pilling horribly. Very disappointing. As a family of 5, we own a lot of Patagonia, and this is not up to their normal standards.

Response from Patagonia
January 18, 2022

Hi Emily, we're so sorry to hear about your experience with pilling. To prevent pilling, we recommend washing that item either by hand in cool to cold water, or separately in your washing machine on the gentle cycle. It's best to lay it flat to dry rather than place it in the dryer where the fabric can easily get abraded. To remove pilling that has already occurred, a sweater shaver or sweater stone is an excellent tool and can help the garment look brand new again. Of course, if you are not pleased with the performance of your gear, you are absolutely welcome to send it in for a [warranty returns]( evaluation under our Ironclad Guarantee.

Great Xmas Gift

The size and height I have provided were for my daughter , who received this as a Xmas gift this year. My Own take on this : I thought Wow, its a pricy sweater ! When I opened the box to ensure the size /color were correct, I was Blown away! NOW I GET IT!! Its worth every Penny ! I plan to buy one for myself next ! Lol

December 23, 2021

Marsupial didnt hit the mark

I got this for my girlfriend because she wanted the marsupial pocket to keep warm during walks and hikes. It was the main reason for the purchase. The pocket is cavernous and not lined. Her hands arent kept warm. Traditional pockets wouldve been better. Please shrink the pocket and line it. Air goes right through the material when the wind blows. O...

Cozy but wish it was softer

I love the look and fit but thought it would be softer and cozier. It softened up with first wash so I kept it hoping itll just get better and better because thats how all of my Patagonia fleece have been.

December 11, 2021


I sized up as I like the oversized fleece look, Super soft, cosy and comfortable to wear. Nice to have pockets on a fleece and the zips are and welcome addition. I haven’t found that it malts much at all. Very happy with my purchase

Cozy and warm!

I answered this for the person I bought this for since it is a gift. If you made your clothing in petites you would certainly sell them to me, but I can't wear them as the sleeves particularly are too long. My adult daughter loves your products and this was on her Christmas wish list.

Poor care instructions

This sweater is really warm and has a great design, but I was super disappointed after washing. I followed the instructions and washed cold and dried on low heat, but my fleece came out ruined. It's all matted down now and looks old after one wash. Really disappointed in the quality after a wash. Usually love Patagonia for how well it holds up... Read More and easy to care fore. Wish the instructions said to air dry.

great city sweater!!

Hi!!!! I was gifted this fleece for my birthday, and I must say I love it. It kept me warm against the cold city weather, and honestly i did not need any other layer on top of this. Super fuzzy and warm, love this. However, after around 10 wears i noticed a rip in the seem of the arm sleeves. It wasn't noticeable, but it made me upset because...

Hello Ruby, thank you for taking the time to leave a review and for the DIY repair. In the future, if a Patagonia item needs fixing, our [Repair Team]( is also happy to help.

Very cosy

The fleece is gorgeous. Very warm. It’s very true to size. Certainly does not run large as some mentioned. I’m 167cm and approx. 55kg, slim straight built. I like outdoor clothes to be a bit baggy and size S fits perfectly, but certainly isn’t baggy. I hope it doesn’t shrink when washed. Quality is great. Just ordered hiking pants. Love the brand.

November 8, 2021

Cozy, warm and stylish

Theres a lot to love about this cozy, warm, and attractive fleece. The large marsupial pocket has functional storage space and a warm place for your hands. The chest pocket is big enough to fit an iPhone 13 mini. This has been a staple for chill autumn days and pairs great with tights for casual wear, walking the dog, or lounging. It runs a bit roo...

November 5, 2021

Best Pullover!!!

I bought this three days ago and have been wearing it since - thus far no issues with fabric shedding. It's a loose fit, but snug enough around the waist to keep the heat in, but relaxed throughout the body, very cozy and comfy fit. It's very warm. Highly recommend!!

November 3, 2021

Cozy cold weather staple

Incredibly warm, soft and cozy! I l love the boxy and slightly oversized fit and the generously sized pockets. This is a great cold weather casual staple that looks great. Only downside is it pills and sheds easily, so Im constantly leaving a trail of fuzz behind me.

Hello Johanna! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We really appreciate the feedback and we're happy to hear for the most part you're happy with the pullover. Some shedding is expected with a newer fleece but after the first few washes that should stop. If it doesn't stop and becomes a larger issue you're always welcome to [return]( under warranty.

Too small overall

This garment was very disappointing in overall fit. It runs small across the shoulders and is rather tight fitting. It does not feel cozy, it feels small. The armpits on the sleeves were so low I had about 3 inches of fabric there and could barely raise my arms. I wear a medium in all of my tops and it fits perfectly. Patagonia seems to have straye... Read Mored from realistic design on this one. I am 5'3'' and around 125 pounds so a medium should have been just right. A larger size would not have helped the low armpits and overall fit would have been off. The fabric is great and I loved the longer zipper opening. The previous model and a rather small neck opening which was weird. I hope you go back to the drawing board on this one. I did try a full zip one this summer and it fit the same way. I am sad this didn't work out.

Hi Molly! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear about the disappointment with the fit of the pullover. With that said, this feedback is much appreciated as it how we improve things for future seasons. We'll pass this along to our design crew!

Super comfy

I would say this fits true to size. I ordered a Medium for a more oversized fit. Love the color and the fit. I have been wearing this most days since Ive had it when its cold outside!

October 22, 2021

Super warm and cosy..

Thats about it.. and Love the colour

Sheds a lot

I really want to love this (its very cute) and would wear it a lot more if it didnt shed fuzz everywhere! Ive washed it several times and it still sheds Im afraid its gonna fall apart.

We're sorry to hear that the fleece fabric hasn't been durable for you. For [product care](, we recommend closing all zippers and snaps, machine wash on gentle cycle in cool water with a mild detergent and no fabric softener. You may hang to air dry or tumble dry on low heat, again with no fabric softener. If that doesn't help, you're welcome to return it under our Ironclad Guarantee!

Nice fit and very cozy

This was my first purchase from Patagonia. I had wanted a jacket from the Retro line for a long time. I ended up choosing the marsupial version. I am petite, and the size XS fits me well, just a bit longer. I really like the colour, the cut and the feel of the fabric.

September 24, 2021

Cozy and stylish

This was my first Patagonia purchase. Honestly, I I didnt need the Retro Pile Fleece Marsupial Pullover, I just wanted to support a company that gets under Tucker Carlsons skin. The pullover really is comfortable and the fit is great. I plan on adding more pieces to my wardrobe. Thanks for being an upstanding company!

September 22, 2021

Really beautiful and practical fleece

This fleece has a lovely design and I like the pockets - very practical. I went for a medium for an oversized look (I am a size 10, small) and so I can layer up in winter. The Abalone blue colour is gorgeous :). Will get lots of wear outdoors, work and casually.

Ws Retro Pile Marsupial

I bought this for my daughter's birthday and she loves it. Its warm, soft, cosy, light weight and looks great. Ideal for cooler evenings. I want one too. My only preference would be for a slightly longer body length.

September 14, 2021

Very warm and snuggly

Runs large, size down one size, I kept my large but med would be a better fit. So far no pilling, washed once. Highly recommend if u are cold alot, it very toasty

September 14, 2021

Comfy and cozy

This fleece is very cozy and will be perfect for colder months. The pile felt a little thin but feels great when you put it on. I had to size up from my down hoodie to a size medium.

September 10, 2021

Comfy but pilled quickly

I've had this fleece for just about a year now - the fit is great, color was just what I was looking for, but sadly - it has pilled all over to the point where it does not look good anymore. I wish I could attach a photo... The pilling makes this fleece look really worn out and like it hasn't been taken care of - it's a little embarr... Read Moreassing to wear at this point. I was hoping to wear this for years... I haven't experienced the shedding that some other reviewers mentioned, but this pilling is unlike anything I've seen on any of my other (and much older) fleeces.

Response from Patagonia
September 16, 2021

Hi Lidia, we're sorry to hear about your experience with pilling. Pilling can be inevitable with knit garments as it is the nature of those fibers. With that being said, there are various products that can remove the pilling so your jacket can look good as new! We recommend using a Sweater Stone or fabric shaver to remove pilling. To prevent pilling in the future, try washing it either by hand in cool to cold water, or separately in your washing machine on the gentle cycle. It's best to lay it flat to dry rather than place it in the dryer where the fabric can easily get upbraided. Of course, if you are not satisfied with your purchase, you may send it in for a warranty evaluation. Just give us a [call or chat in]( so we can set that up for you.

Fits true to size

I always wear a size medium in Patagonia fleeces and was weary after I read the reviews but if you normally wear a medium, get a medium. Cozy, comfortable, will last forever. I got the blue color and I love it. Soft on inside and outside. Glad I made the purchase. Definitely keeps you warm

I miss the classic fleece marsupial

I purchased this marsupial and also the vest last season because of the simple one fabric almost one color design. It is nice and warm which is great, but I agree with other reviews on the fabric. It just has a messy look after washing (a little like the dog with wet fur after a bath) and yes it pills. The fleece I loved and lived in for years was ... Read Morethe classic fleece,I still have several marsupials that have been heavily worn and are over twenty years old! They were basic in color and design I'm still trying but I miss the patagonia that wasn't so stylized.

Stunning colour & superb in comfort

I purchased the Women's Retro Pile Fleece Marsupial in Abalone Blue. Absolutely love it. It's so cosy and the perfect everyday jumper.

Lovely warm fleece

This fleece is so lovely and snuggly. Great for keeping warm on colder autumn days!

Super Soft

I LOVE this sweater! Its super soft and warm. For me, it does run a bit loose but I still wear it all the time!

July 14, 2021

Soft and warm

This fleece is lovely. It runs slightly small in my opinion. I usually wear a small but sized up to a medium and it fits perfectly. The fabric is so soft and warm. Great for a cool summer night.

July 9, 2021

Lightweight, warm and spacious pockets!

I sized up with this fleece because I wanted it to be a little bit oversized and layer underneath it, but I think a medium (my regular size) would have fitted very true to size. This pullover is very soft and warm without being heavy, and it also has ample pocket space.

Very Soft

This is a very soft and comfortable sweater! I bought it in a large and xl because they were out of large in the color I wanted at first so I tried the xl. I preferred the xl over the large. The large seemed quite a bit smaller than the xl and I was going for an oversized look. I returned both because neither seemed to be exactly what I was looking...

Best fleece

I own several Patagonia fleeces.... but cant seem to take this one off! Its comfy and looks cute. Going to order another one in brown

April 12, 2021

Super cozy!!

My new favorite fleece! Medium to light weight fleece with a relaxed fit at the waist (ie not tight). I am 5'1" and 102 ish and the XS is a perfect fit for my frame. Meaning it sits at my hips and does not hang past. The 3/4 zip is nice and deep making it easy for pulling on and off. Chest zipper is well placed also! Love this piece!

Retro Pile Mess

I like this pullover, I don't love the little fabric pills that come with wear, its looks terrible, and a not a happy when I put it on.

Response from Patagonia
April 13, 2021

Hi Kelly, thanks for the feedback on the material and we are sorry to hear about the pilling. Sadly, pilling can be common on fleece garments as it is the nature of nylon fibers. With that in mind though, we'd suggest using a tool like a sweater stone, to remove the pilling. If that doesn't help, you are always welcome to [return]( anything back to us.

Great for Hugging People

This Fleece Pullover is great! It can be used if you need something while camping or are just out and about. It is soft and has multiple pockets! I like hugging people with it so I can spread softness.

April 2, 2021

Love this

It's perfect and warm. Great for a dog walk, just as good for a cross country ski. Just as good for curling up on the couch

March 16, 2021

So soft and cute!

I love my fleece! Im technically an XS but I got a small so it wouldnt be tight and it fits great. I accidentally shrank it in the dryer and it hardened all the soft parts and I was DEVASTATED but the store exchanged it for me which was awesome! Im now a loyal customer since their customer service is so great.
