Ws Better Sweater™ Jacket

True To Size
December 30, 2020

Excellent Gift

I bought this for my daughter in law for Christmas and she loved it. She wears a medium, but I ordered it in large because it stated slim fitting. It fits her perfectly.

December 30, 2020

Very Comfy

I've wanted a sweater-jacket like this for a long time. It's fleece-lined, so really comfy; zips all the way up the front, so easy on-off; and there's no hood (I don't care for hoods on layering items), so it fits under a raincoat.

December 28, 2020


Other XS fit me fine. This one too small. Reordering a small

December 28, 2020

Top notch

I love this sweater so much that I got one for myself and my boyfriend. Its warm, comfortable , and the blue color is so beautiful.

December 27, 2020

Really love this!

Love this! The light balsamic color is soooo pretty! I got a Small but was a little baggy in the stomach and back. I sized down to XS and now it fits a lot better. A little tight on the arms but the rest fits better, can still fit a long sleeve underneath. Im 53 and 130 lbs.

December 26, 2020

Super comfortable

I bought this for my granddaughter for xmas and she said she loves the sweater/jacket. She would tell me if she didnt.

Perfect sweater jacket for casualwear and comfort.

I loved the fleece sweater jacket. Love the color the fit the style the fabric.

December 25, 2020

Excellent...especially company values


December 22, 2020

Wore my husbands was warm and comfortable.

My husband bought me this so he could get his back. I never buy the better things like him but he now has convinced me. Quality warmth softness right out of the shipping package. Next step what other colors can I get him to buy me. Now my favorite fleece jacket no need for another brand.

I love my sweater jacket. Super warm and soft. Shape stays after washing.

Cozy and warm

Wonderfully warm!! Cozy and really cuts the cold!! I do love it! The color (green) is beautiful and it is keeping me warm in my office while doing my zoom calls!!

December 17, 2020

Comforting and comfortable.

I like the better sweater, because it looks sharp on my days in front of my Zoom camera. I have it in large and medium sizes to see what I liked best. I purchased the sweater because of a lightweight Patagonia fleece I have had for several years. I like the better sweater for its great warmth, but I wish I could still find a lightweight fleece with... Read More short nap again for spring days, evening walks and summer at the beach.

Typical Patagonia Quality & Fit

I already had an older Patagonia fleece jacket, so I knew what I was getting: durable for my kinds of use, nice fit, holds up well. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 was that the colors offered this year were unisex. The reddish color I did buy is kind of like a brick red. I almost sent it back because it was bland, but decided to keep it... Read More and feel free to wear it for activities that might be messier.

Better Sweater - Petite Woman Feels Left Out

Unfortunately, I have not been successful in finding the proper fit for Patagonia items in your women's line. Until you offer sizing for petite women, I will be shopping at L. L. Beans. I am 5'2" and weight 102 lbs. Recently, I purchased an LL Bean's Better Sweater in Petite, Small, which fitted perfectly. Your Better Sweater in... Read More Small was too tight, and the Medium was a good fit though the body, but the sleeves and length of the sweater were a few inches too long. I would really like to purchase items from Patagonia, but my attempts to do so have not been successful. Perhaps you will consider offering petite and tall sizes some day!

December 3, 2020

Cozy but fitting

I absolutely love every product Ive ever gotten from Patagonia. I did however, but this jacket as my first ever and I thought a M would fit perfect but I am built a little broader in my shoulders/back so its a bit snug. Still amazing overall though! Everything from cut, style, pattern, and length.

November 25, 2020

Nice quality!

It fits perfectly and its really well made. Unlike other makers, its truly black not charcoal gray pretending to be black. It looks wonderful and for a few dollars more, it looks 100x better. Please make more Womens plus sizes!! Were ready to buy Patagonia!

November 24, 2020

Just not for me!

I bought this jacket as a practical mid-layer piece for fall and winter. I'm about 5'5 and 120lbs - the jacket fits pretty well and is snug to my torso when fully zipped up. While I do agree that it's incredibly warm and I love all the pockets, I have an issue with the left arm pocket. There's a good chunk of extra fabric in tha... Read Moret area because of the pocket and it tends to cut off my circulation when I bend my arm for a long period of time. Even though it fits pretty well everywhere else, I'll be returning it because I need something extremely practical for work.

November 22, 2020

Super warm

Love the fit of this sweater. It is also one of the warmest sweaters I own. It looks good at the office or casually, but is an effective layer when wearing it to play as well.

November 21, 2020

Awesome customer service

This jacket fits like a glove and is very warm. The first one I ordered had a ripped seam on the inside. I contacted Patagonia over Facebook and they were extremely helpful and sent me a replacement the next day! Very satisfied with my purchase and the customer service.

November 18, 2020


Being 6'0, I usually have a difficult time finding sweaters with long enough sleeves, but this fits great! Based on the size chart, I should be a M, but decided to go with a L. I'm glad I did; the fit is perfect!

November 17, 2020

Love it

Im 54 and about 115 pounds I got a xs. It fits very well. Keeps me warm!!

November 15, 2020

Pills something awful

I was disappointed by how much and how quickly pilling has occurred with this sweater. I like the level of warmth and versatility but Im already less likely to wear it because of the maintenance required and how cheap it looks if I don't regularly remove the pilling. Its a bummer.

Response from Patagonia
December 16, 2020

Hi Tina, we're sorry to hear about the trouble with pilling. Removing pills can help extend the life of your Patagonia sweater, plus it's easy to do with a sweater stone.

Fits Perfectly!

Bought this for my fiancé. Shes 54, roughly 170-180 lbs. It fits perfectly and she loves it!

November 11, 2020

Super comfortable

This jacket is very comfortable and fits just right. The fit is perfect and inside very soft. My only issue is the zipper, would have liked a thicker one

November 11, 2020


I got a xxl because I have a large chest. Its hard to find things that fit and feel like Im not wearing a bag. The xxl fits well! I can zip it and its not super tight! And the cut is flattering (not like a bag) its not too long, rests just below my hips. Very comfortable and cozy. Very happy with my purchase!

November 10, 2020

Better sweater

Didnt realize it was fitted the M was tight around the midrib and the L too long on the sleeves. Will be looking for a regular fit one.

I love mine! I want one in every color

Highly recommended for any medical professionals!

The better jacket is okay

This is my second Patagonia womens better jacket. The first one really exceeded my expectation which inspired me to order a new one. The only problem is the front zipper does not run as smoothly as the first one, a bit disappointing.

October 30, 2020

no regret

comfortable and careless. like it

October 21, 2020

Cute and comfy

After 5+ years, the zipper fell off. The sweater has held up nicely other than that. I have worn it on many ski trips, vacations, to school and have loved having it for many years. I'm hoping the company will replace the zipper if not a full replacement. Save the receipt.

We're so glad your jacket has held up for so long and served you well, that's what we aim for! We offer free [repairs]( if you want to send it in, we'd be happy to take a look at that zipper to get 5+ more years of life out of it!

The Pilling is insane

I love Patagonia products, however; this time I'm quite disappointed. I was gifted a black better sweater and the pilling is insane! I know they ask you to use a brush to shave it but it just doesn't look as nice. This happened after one time of washing it and air drying. It ends up looking quite raggedy. It's definitely more noticea... Read Moreble in black. Unfortunately, it's been sitting in my closet for months now.

October 10, 2020

Wouldnt buy again

At first I enjoyed wearing this everyday but I noticed after every wash the jacket would collect lint. Ive tried lint removers but it just wont budge.

October 2, 2020

Warm and cozy

I am 5'2, 112 lbs. Most of my other Patagonia items are a size small, but a lot of the reviews of this item said it ran small, so I ordered a medium. The medium is a loose fit on me, and the sleeves are slightly long, but over all I really like it and I am happy with the size, as I want to wear it mainly outdoors and be able to layer under it....

October 2, 2020

Runs VERY small - careful with custom orders

I absolutely love this jacket, however, it is VERY tight in chest if you have a bigger bust. My company surprised me with a custom order in a size L (what I usually wear) but based on size chart for slim fit I will need a size XXL.

Thumbs Up

I work in recreation and have been needing something that functions well, keeps me warm in the AC of the office and outside, and looks put together enough to wear over a uniform polo if I have an event. This has more mobility than our soft shell jackets with added cozy warmth, and I know I will get plenty of use out of this! I was lucky enough to b... Read Moreuy one of these lovely sweaters second hand from a friend (reduce, reuse, recycle!) and I think its exactly what my wardrobe needed. I am usually a large/extra large in tops, and the large in this is fitted enough to look work appropriate, but comfortable enough to move around in. I could probably have sized up to an XL and been fine, but again, Im trying to keep items in circulation that already exist, and a large was easily available to me. I think the reviews saying size up are a matter of preference as I dont plan on wearing bulky things underneath this sweater, and Id rather it fit closer to the body so that I can layer rain coats or heavier jackets over it if needed. Overall, I would absolutely recommend! I hope this lasts me many years.

September 18, 2020

Favorite Zip Up

So many compliments. High quality. I prefer my clothing very fitted and the medium on my 5'7" 168lbs frame hugs me perfectly and hits me right at the hip.

September 12, 2020

Amazing Quality!!!

Literally my favorite jacket! I would definitely recommend going a size up (or more) if you like a loose fit. My typical jacket size is a Large, but I ordered an XXL and I think it's perfect.

September 7, 2020

Very Super Warm

I love my fleece, feels like I wearing a blanket on my shoulders. It is perfect when the AC is kicking high in the office and it warms you very well.

Great four season sweater/jacket

My husband has 3 of these. I finally purchased one and I love it.

Just perfect!

Love the color. Its very warm, comfortable and looks great! Ive warn it biking and hiking. I definitely recommend it.

Perfect fall jacket!

I have two of these jackets and love them both. The thickness and warmth is just right for these early cooler fall days!

Warm and good zipper!

Bought it for mom. She loves the quality and color. I'm a fan and appreciate the product support.

September 4, 2020

Not an Olympic Athlete in size or stature

I really wish you would cut a few of your styles more generously in the waist. I bought a size larger than I would normally wear and plan to have a tailor cut it down to fit since I am a petite. Could not resist the color.

Comfortable, cozy, versatile jacket

This is a thicker jacket and one that is warm and cozy for cooler weather. I tend to run hot, so I would save this for cooler, but not cold weather.

This Fleece is a perfect weight for the transition seasons. It also is great as an extra layer under a winter coat in those colder months. Very comfortable and durable.

Cozy, great fit

I was warned that these jackets run small. So I bought a size medium. Glad I did. While it is a little bigger through the midsection, the sleeves fit perfectly. It will be great with a long sleeve shirt under. I love it. Totally worth the price.

I am 5'10" about 145 pounds. I have long arms and fairly broad shoulders and the Large fit me perfectly.

Warning: runs VERY small!!!

I ordered this jacket in a custom order from my university. I usually wear a Women's 8-10 in tops, which is a M in the size chart.

It was incredibly... Read More unflattering, especially if you have any curves at all. Next time my school does an order I will get the 1/4 zip instead in hopes that will be better.

First Patagonia Purchase

Very disappointed in this jacket. I purchased it while vacationing in Bar Harbor,Maine. I have worn it several times and it just isn't wearing well.

Love this but it's SUPER WARM. I can only wear it when it's under 40. Not super stretchy, so if you're between sizes go up. Otherwise, it's relatively true to size. I would suggest the full zip so you can regulate temp better when this gets too warm.

I received this jacket as a gift, and although the jacket was very warm and versatile, it ended up being a lot lower quality than I expected from Patagonia.

Super warm

I bought this jacket while in Colorado on a ski trip. It kept me warm while hiking in Breck with just a t-shirt under! It’s cute and stylish and goes with everything! I’m 5’6 and 170 pounds and the large fit perfect. Usually I’m a medium but I guess these run small. I love the birch white even though it’s more grayish. Definitely recommend.

Tight arms, itchy seams

I think the Better Sweater runs true to size; I'm usually an L and found it to have a body-skimming shape but to have enough room for my bust and hips (36G, 44 inch hips). I did think the arms felt tight, especially if you have to move them around (rather than just standing still). I think this is due to the seam being too tight under the arms... Read More. Even though it fit everywhere else, the arms were just too snug everywhere, and I could only fit a short sleeve tee underneath. The serged seam at the top of the collar was also really itchy and tightly sewn. It really irritated my neck and felt rough to the touch. Not at all what I want on my neck when I'm feeling cold! My husband got me a Patagonia graphic tee in the same size and there is literally more room in the arms in the tee than in the Better Sweater. I did love the pocket lining which was very soft! The outer fabric felt rough (perhaps due to the color Hawthorne Blue being heathered/marled) and strangely compared to my husband's Better Sweater this almost felt like factory seconds because of the tight rough seams and rough fabric. It is warm, which is great, and I was pleased with the length and the overall shape, but sadly this was not a keeper for me.

This is a great outer or base layer for me so I like it on the tighter side. I love that it is warm and well fitted for a base layer or just as a jacket with jeans. I has to size up one size and the arms and length get much longer the larger the sizes, but The medium works great.

Warm and stylish but clings

A well made garment. Sleeves are a bit on the long side. I enjoy wearing it but dislike putting it on over a cotton long sleeve top because it is so clingy. This is a real problem with the garment. The sleeves get hung up and it takes forever to get them adjusted so I am comfortable. This is a draw back and should be addressed in my opinion.

I bought this because I’m cold all the time and you finally have somehting in a pink color. It’s so warm and comfortable! Perfect except the sleeves are too long.

Great sweater

Very comfortable and warm not to heavy

December 14, 2019

Love this!

This is my second Better Sweater, which is more like a jacket. It's warm, fitted and not too bulky. Highly recommend!

December 13, 2019

Love it!

This is such a versatile piece. Wear it as a mid layer or an outer layer, soft, warm & comfortable. I’m lost without it.

Jacket is to small

I even ordered a size up from what I normally wear since they say slim fit and it still does not fit.

I’ve worn my Better Sweater everyday since I got it. Runs small though. I had to return the small and get a medium.

Fantastic Sweater Fleece and Service

This is a fitted fleece jacket. I am 5'9" and 125 lbs. I don't like things clingy, so I purchased medium. It is still fitted, and the sleeves are nice and long. It keeps me very warm. My 79 year old mom liked it, too, so I have purchased one for her.

Nice and warm but runs very small

The better sweater is a nice staple to have in your closet but beware it runs small! I’m 5’ 8”, 145 lbs and always a medium. This was so tight and the sleeves were short. My 13 year old who is 5’ 3 and 120 lbs even felt it was snug on her. I got the large and we both wear it!

November 25, 2019

So. Cozy.

The most comfortable cozy sweater. It has a Little bit of stretch too, which is really nice. The dark green color is lovely in person.

Better Sweater Jacket

I love my better sweater! It's warm enough that I don't need a coat with it unless it's freezing outside! Great color choices, too. Overall so happy I got it!

Rename to: the BEST Sweater

I purchased a quarter zip better sweater for my husband last Christmas. I found myself wanting to steal it so had my eye on a full zip for me for a while- difficulty was in figuring out which color! I really love this jacket- it's easily a sweater on chilly winter days (Michigan) or cool fall mornings (Oregon) and an all around soft, comfy, fi... Read Moretted item that I love to wear! In case you were wondering- I decided on navy. :)

November 20, 2019


The jacket is designed for outerwear. It is bulky. The collar does not close snugly around the neck, which would be helpful for outdoor wear.

November 20, 2019

Favorite new jacket

Fit is great, super warm. Perfect for layering!

Excellent Product, Excellent Customer Service

I love the sweater in all respects. Probably most impressive for me is the excellent finish, stitching, design. We have trouble with shipping, and Customer Service fixed everything.

Better sweater

Love this jacket. So versatile. I love wearing it like a sweater and a coat over it. I freeze in restaurants and this sweatercoat is perfect in staying warm. Love it

Ws better sweater jacket

Love the inside pockets, use them a lot

November 14, 2019

Cozy and comfy

Great jacket for many activities! If you are planning on using it was a top layer with long sleeve under layer(s) going up a size would be wise.

Jane N

Very Frustrated with this product. I love the color, the fit, and the style. But when you wear it with anything short sleeve you can feel the seams all the way down the arms which make it very itchy. I am afraid I will have to return it. But I am not happy that Patagonia does not offer free returns for as much as their items cost. So I guess I will...

Hello Jane, we're sorry to hear the sleeves are itchy. We do ask that our customers pay for the return shipping, except when it comes to exchanges.

I absolutely love the sweater jacket. I bought a larger size because I like to layer underneath it.

Great jacket

Interesting new colors!!

November 7, 2019


My new favorite Patagonia. Lined pockets keep your hands toasty and fit/design/function is spot on. True to size: as this is a slim fit, size up if you want to layer, otherwise expect it to be snug. I am 5’7 and about 145 and wear a small in regular fit for Patagonia and prefer a medium in slim fit (I have one better sweater in a small as well but ... Read Moreit is snug with no room for layers.) Love this jacket!

November 6, 2019

The main zipper was not

The main zipper was not sewn flush with the fabric and so the front ends up being bulky and "wavy" in the front when unzipped. I had another Better Sweater that I loved for years. But had to return the two that I ordered this time.

November 5, 2019

Love it!

Love it!

Cozy jacket, tight sleeves

I sized up so I can layer but not sure I will be able to. The bottom half of the sleeves is very tight. Torso/chest fits as expected. Nice green color, warm and wind proof. Perfect for November in the north.

November 3, 2019

I love this sweater!

I’m 5’5”, 145lbs, a size 6 bottoms/ dresses and typically a small shirt. I bought a medium and it fits perfectly. Fitted, but still with room for layering. It’s so soft and cozy. I can wear it to work over my scrubs and still look professional. I wore it outside in 40ish degrees and still felt it was warm enough. Good for fall and early winter.

November 2, 2019

Love It

This is my 3rd Better Sweater item. I have 2 long sleeved and 1 vest and love them all.

Always a quality product

I already owned a nano-puff vest and love it. Now I’ve added the equivalent jacket and love it, too. One just can not beat the quality of Patagonia.

October 30, 2019


Love this sweater. Incredibly versatile I wear it every single day. Usually a size M but I got a Large and it fits well not too snug.

October 30, 2019


Stylish sweater, will keep you warm in moderate weather. Accidentally put in dryer once and the sweater is now a piling disaster. Ever since that mishap, the piling has just gotten worse. Expected better quality from Patagonia.

Response from Patagonia
November 15, 2019

Hi Brandy, thank you for your feedback! We’re very sorry to hear about the pilling that has appeared on your sweater! I would recommend using a sweater shaver or sweater stone – these tools will remove the pilling and help your Better Sweater to look brand new again. Of course, you are also welcome to initiate a [return]( on that item if you’d like.

bought a second one because I wear it so much

perfect temp inside the hospital professional looking slim cut for work inner pockets hold a ton of stuff including an ipad mini I get compliments almost daily. seems a bit expensive before buying but definitely no buyers remorse— worth it once you try it and it becomes a necessary part of your uniform

October 22, 2019

So cute & soft!

Perfect for all things cozy & casual! I haven’t exercised in it outside of evening hikes and strolls with the dogs and imagine it would be a little clammy for a run or ride, but I’m sure it won’t be the worst! Runs true to size for me (medium: 5,11 ~155 lbs)

October 19, 2019

Petite size

The jacket is well made and the color beautiful . My only issue is that the size small is too fitted in the shoulders. Perfect at the waist and arms.

October 16, 2019

So warm and flattering!

Loved this jacket. It’s just right for Socal nights, and it’s so flattering.

October 15, 2019

Comfortable/warm and not bulky!

I wear in my office which is cold year around, stay warm without the bulk, wash up great, have 3 colors will get more!

Only complaint - the sleeves

Only complaint - the sleeves are very slim, otherwise I love it!

Not just

The better sweater is a perfect combination of styling and function. Great for these cooler Autumn days and nice enough to wear out to casual events, especially if your like me and don’t do the “dress up thing”. The light balsamic is a beautiful rich color. I like the slim fit.

This jacket is quite slim. I ordered an xxl and it was tight on my size 14 frame. It really needs a double zipper!

Love It!

This is my second Better Sweater (I have a pinkish one) - and really love this heather grey color. This is the perfect layer for fall as the mornings and evenings get cooler. The cut is a little fitted, but still allows a bit of room for a base layer or t shirt.

This jacket is perfect for the in between seasons and as a layer in the chillier times. Under a vest or a jacket. Bravo!
