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.

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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
Thanks for your feedback on this fleece top, Ann! We're sorry it was disappointing. Please reach out to our Customer Service team if you'd like any assistance with product measurements or suggestions. We'll be happy to help!
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.
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. Please [reach out to us](https://help.patagonia.com/s/?_gl=1*1bttlj9*_ga*MTE3MzgxOTU4OS4xNjQ3NTMxMTc0*_ga_1SYPSJZYJ5*MTY3NjM5ODY2Ni41MzEuMS4xNjc2NDAwMjkxLjAuMC4w) and we'd be happy to set you up with a warranty evaluation.
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.
We appreciate your feedback Mary! Our design team creates styles in Slim, Regular or Relaxed fit, and this can affect how an item will feel compared to a previous purchase.

Of course if it doesn't work out, we're happy to help with an exchange or return, so please don't hesitate to reach out to us in any channel.
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.
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.
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.

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. Also, the color (shroom taupe) ... Read Moregoes with everything.
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).

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

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.

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.
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](https://www.patagonia.com/home/) 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
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.

Hi Jonathan, thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear the pockets weren't as warm as she had hoped.

We want you and your girlfriend to be happy with everything you purchase from us, and if you like we'll be happy to help you [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it.
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.

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](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) is also happy to help.
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.
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.

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](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) 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!
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](https://www.patagonia.com/product-care.html), 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!
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!
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.
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 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.
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](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) 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.

Read Morethe classic fleece,I still have several marsupials that have been heavily worn and are over twenty years old!

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.
Stiff, very pilled fabric
Bought two colors, both became very stiff and pilled after washing. Very disappointed, not up to Patagonia standards.
Hi Emily, thank you for taking the time to write a review on this pullover. This fleece is double-sided and definitely meant to be thick and warm. We apologize for the stiffness and appreciate your comments on that. Please feel free to [send](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) this back to us.
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.

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.
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](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) anything back to us.
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.
