You should have this in your wardrobe

December 1, 2022

Great fit for tall men

At 6'3 I've had a hard time finding vests that are long enough. This vest is the perfect length and I couldn't be happier with the purchase. Very warm and versatile, I can even wear it to the office on casual days. Will be buying additional colors soon.

November 29, 2022

Quality Craftmanship

Quality and durable fabric with stylish color hues.

November 28, 2022

Labels too much

I love Patagonia clothes, but I don't like all the prominent labels. I bought the vest, I didn't pay for it to advertise for the company. I don't need the status symbol if that is what it is. My old Patagonia clothes have labels as zipper pulls or inside the collar. Im not comfortable always being a walking billboard. Im sure the mar...

Hey Gary, thanks for the review. Some people would like to show that they're wearing Patagonia, and others do not. Either way, we make something for everyone! We recommend checking out the [Men's Synchilla Fleece Vest](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-synchilla-fleece-vest/23011.html?dwvar_23011_color=NENA). It does have the label as the zipper pull on the pocket, but it's easy to remove without damaging the vest.

November 28, 2022

Comfy AF

I had been needing a vest for years and for one reason or another, I never got around to getting one until I got this one. Its super soft and warm. Goes great with a shell layer to keep me warm, but not too warm.

November 27, 2022

Warm, but cool arms

I like the vest, it is well constructed and keeps my torso warm, but my arms free and cool. I like to perform windmills with my arms, it started casually, but has grown to more of an amateur sport. This vest is perfect for my deep desire to one day be an Olympic windmiller. Thank you Patagonia for helping me along my journey.

November 25, 2022

Just Perfect

I was replacing an old Patagonia vest that had grown too large for me (and was just perfect for my grandson). The medium size fits perfectly. Exactly what I was looking for. Its a great every day piece in our cool, damp PNW.

The Compleat Vest

I gave this vest to my son as a holiday gift a year ago and have wished to have one for myself now that cooling weather of the autumn is here. So I ordered it for myself! It feels so good to wear that I do not want to take it off. The knit material of recycled polyester material with the nice interior lining is just good to the touch and functional... Read Morely warm. I think Patagonia has hit the right style as I wear it downtown to my office and out in the countryside. Great product.

November 17, 2022

Nice fit

Fits Great

November 15, 2022

Great gillet

This is a great gillet, perfect for the weekend or the office during the cold season. I would totally recommend but be mindful of the size as it runs large

November 14, 2022

Comparing the photo supplied for

Comparing the photo supplied for this review (fyi: a gift), my vest doesn't quite match; e.g., at the shoulders. Across the top of my shoulders the vest sticks both out & up; i.e., it reminds me of some sort of sci-fi outfit seen in old TV series - the vest's material (right above its armpits) will not "relax." Perhaps there... Read More's too much material across the back of vest. Compared to other medium sized Patagonia vests that I wear, this one - while warm - is not a good fit for a 5' 9' slim built male.

Perfect Compliment

I purchased the Better Sweater Vest to use mainly "over the dress shirt" at work in the fall and winter coming up. It is the perfect extra layer without having to use a 1/4 zip or sweater (just yet). So comfortable and looks fantastic.

October 24, 2022

Too long!

The vest is too long, it goes down past my hips. Its awkward, do not wear it anymore.

October 24, 2022


Its not as warm as expected but its very useful second layer under an overcoat.

October 23, 2022

Great Product

I am a Patagonia vest enthusiast. I have many of them, but I have noticed in the more recent ones that I have ordered, the size Medium runs slightly larger than in the past. The materials have changed slightly over time as well. It is still a great product.

October 20, 2022

Cozy without restriction

I love my Better Sweater Vest. Ive bought them for presents for a couple of friends and family, and they love them. I owned the Better Sweater and decided to try the vest. I love it, and its so comfortable I forget Im wearing it. No restrictions with arm movement, and just the right level of extra warmth for cooler days. Can also be comfortably wor...

Sooo comfortable

This is the first best I have ever bought. But I’m sure the zip is on the wrong side for a male wearer. Could I have this corrected as I find it odd like this?

October 15, 2022

Great brand, great products

Patagonia is simply a great brand with nice versatile products that last a lifetime…5 stars just because 6 was not an option

October 11, 2022

Fitting Guide is Great!

I ordered this vest online using the fitting guide measurements and they were perfect. I haven't gotten to wear it yet because the weather is too warm, but the quality of the work looks good.

Better Sweater is best

This sweater is a great item. Really comfortable and comforting.

Cool looking, great fit

Very cool looking vest. Fine for everyday use and in colder climates. Not suited for high intensity work

July 24, 2022

Useful at work in heavily air conditioned environment

It is great, but I wished it had placed I could clip on some work stuff.

This product is staple and quality built.

Great top

Great top, love it, I use this for climbing and work

Excellent vest!

A little more substantial than the synchilla vest, and longer in the torso, making for a great piece. Fits a touch smaller than my size large Better Sweater, and so XL vest is perfect. Love it!

Great vest!

Bought a size smaller than my typical Patagonia gear, but love it!

Business casual

This is the unofficial but official uniform around here for business casual. The vest is very comfortable and looks amazing. I definitely recommend everyone on having a pair.

May 25, 2022


The product was just what the company claimed it to be.

May 24, 2022

Warm and Fit Well

The vest fits just right. Not too loose, not too tight. And it provides enough warmth without the bulk of a regular jacket. It can almost be used on any occasion. And the look can get away with being in a professional setting. I got many compliments about how well I look with the vest on. Ha!

May 8, 2022

Xcellent comfort

Keeps me warm as well as delightfully comfortable > however it does pill! Not to the point that I would part with it, but I am a bit disappointed.

Response from Patagonia
July 7, 2022

Hi Diane! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're sorry to hear that your vest has started to pill. 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. That said, your satisfaction is always guaranteed so if you're unhappy with the vest you can always [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).

May 7, 2022

3 sizes too small compared to Better Sweater

As a vest it should be designed to fit over clothing. In reality this vest would only fit over bare skin compared to the sweater version. I had to send it back because it was so small it wouldn't even fit over a t-shirt. Much smaller than the better sweater. Disappointing.

May 6, 2022

I am a stock broker and this is my uniform

Medium runs small

Ok product but runs very tight. I bought a medium and it was real tight. Im think and have broad shoulders so maybe thats why. I have to see how L fits

April 29, 2022

Awesome vest!

I ordered this vest in Medium, but it was too small. I had to exchange it. Other than that, it is AWESOME. We keep our house on the cool side, so I wear this often while working from home!

April 16, 2022

My 5th Patagonia Vest

I really didn't need another vest but I wanted one in red and it had to have the features I wanted: zippered pockets and a zippered chest pocket for the ever present cell phone. I love Pataponia products, especially their better sweater fleece vests.

April 11, 2022

Great overall vest

Perfect for casual everyday wear and office vest.

April 10, 2022

Super Warm and Comfortable

I bought this for my husband to wear to work during the colder time of year. He absolutely loves it. He says its super warm and so comfortable. I would highly recommend this fleece!

April 9, 2022

As advertised

Wore this on a long international flight which was quite comfortable in addition to being perfect for spring weather.

April 4, 2022

Too small

I have two Patagonia fleece vests that are mediums. They are the same size. Ive worn them for a long time and they fit perfectly and I like them. I ordered this in a medium and it is borderline too small and too tight.

Hi Thomas, thank you for submitting this review. We're sorry to hear this vest may not be the right fit for you. The Better Sweater Vest does run a bit more snug than other vests. If you wish, we'll be happy to help you [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it.

Best vest for everyday

The vest looks great and goes well with casual wear including business casual. Its warm but light.

March 26, 2022

Great color selections

Love Better Sweater Vest. I love tan color. I have same kind of vest from Ralph Lauren but they dont have color selection. Products of Patagonia supports to save environment.and world.

March 17, 2022

The best

It's warm but not bulky, snug but not tight. Does not scrunch up at the belly like other vests. Would buy again.

March 17, 2022

Comfortable and warm.

Love this material. Very soft and comfortable to wear.

March 15, 2022

Warranty is worth it!

Had some issues with abnormal wear and tear and Patagonia and their Customer Service Reps were great in getting it replaced for what I paid for it.

March 15, 2022

Unfortunately Pills

I have wanted a better sweater vest for quite some time, and I love the warmth and fit. However, the fabric pills after only owning it for a couple of months. It looks cheap. I will probably return it.

Thank you for this review, Jennifer. We're sorry to hear that vest is pilling so much! To do the most to prevent pilling in a knit garment we recommend 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 placing it in the dryer.

March 14, 2022

Great Fit, Unstable Fabric

The fit and comfort of this vest are the best of any of the dozens of vests I've purchased over the years. Because this isn't a traditional fleece, it's far less electrostatic, which makes it ideal for heated interior environments. The primary problem with the vest is the durability of the fabric itself. After six weeks of intermitte... Read Morent wear, and two cold-water washes, the fabric is already pilling, small ball-like tufts marring the surface. I bought this same vest two years ago, and both vests suffered the same problem. I hope they figure out how to fix this issue because with a durable fabric this would be the best vest ever.

Hi Robert! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear that your vest has started to pill after such little time.

This item fits great and is comfortable to wear for business attire.

Loved it but the material pills

I love Patagonia apparel and this vest. But after about 1.5 years of ownership, the vest has started to pill very badly. Very disappointed and expected more from Patagonia.

February 22, 2022

love vests

My husband has 3 Better Sweater Fleece Vests. Loves them. Super comfortable, layers them up, fit is perfect. I was surprised to see the overall pilling. I wash them inside out and zip them up.

Response from Patagonia
March 1, 2022

Hi Cathy, thank you for sharing this review! A certain amount of pilling with knit garments is likely due to the nature of those fibers, especially in friction spots. To do the most to prevent pilling we recommend washing it either by hand in cool to cold water, or separately in your washing machine on the gentle cycle. It's ideal to lay it flat to dry rather than place it in the dryer. To remove pilling that has already occurred we recommend using a product like a battery-powered fabric shaver, which is gentler on fabric than a sweater stone.

Warm, Well Fitting

I got both the Better Sweater and the Synchilla vest with the intention of returning the item I liked less. The Better Sweater fit much better on my frame and was not baggy. In the two weeks I've owned it, it instantly became a staple of my wardrobe. It's incredibly comfortable and still looks professional when worn over scrubs. It seems ...

Great fit, super warm,

Great company, great product.

Perfect in every way

Ive worn a Better Sweater for many years so I was excited to add a similar vest to my kit. This vest is a perfect fit and is flawlessly constructed. I looked forward to wearing it for decades!

From the day I received this product,I have got hooked on to this. I use this for Golf,Tennis,Pickle Ball and as Casual wear. I simply love it. Thanks & keep up the quality.

January 31, 2022

great fit

Im 5'7'' and 170lbs also lift regularly. I have trouble finding clothes that fit well as my shoulders require a size larger than my arm length. Im a 45 year old dad and have a little pouch. it fits great. great for layering. it works great for a deep south winter where a long sleeve or sweater with a vest will get you into work from ... Read Morethe parking lot comfortably. Its not super warm but will keep your body heat where it needs to be without overheating. looks great for business casual or even under a blazer for a colder function.

January 30, 2022

Lack of colors

I dislike cold so I wear a vest in the winter. I would like on to go with each of my outfits. That would require a black, a grey, a tan, a brown and a blue. Currently you only have a few of these colors. I have had to order other styles which are less satisfactory. I like the better sweater fleece vest.

January 29, 2022


It's a nice comfortable casual option to wear to work with jeans.

January 29, 2022

Beautiful but too small

This vest is really very nice. Unfortunately, the size runs very small around the middle so I had to return it. I hope they start making the big and tall sizes actually big.

January 27, 2022

Nice vest, but a bit large

Great vest, this one was bought to replace a previous vest that was loved. Love this one too, but both were size Large, but this one is larger. A bit too big, but still love the vest.

Super Quality

High quality well fitting vest.

I've got a fever... for teal.

Haven't owned a fleece in forever and this one bangs! Warm, without the pit sweat. Stylish. I land between a medium and a large with Patagonia, but I'm happy in either.

January 22, 2022

This vest is super warm

Very nice, well made. My husband loves the fit! Other vests look sloppy. This one looks neat. My husband has taken to wearing vests during the cooler months. I could not find one that looked great on him. Then I started noticing men on my flights wearing vests. I would notice the ones that looked nice on them. I asked them what brand. It was Patago... Read Morenia! I had forgotten about this brand!! I was looking at North Face and Columbia. None of theirs look good on my husband. Perhaps we dont have a Patagonia store near me. He had never heard of Patagonia but I have. I ski and snowboard. My husband is not into winter sports. Now he loves his vest and knows about Patagonia. Keep up the good work!

January 21, 2022

This is my second vest. I have a black one and really like how it fits and how warm it is. I wear it all the time. Just felt I needed to add a grey one too.

Better Sweater Vest is the Best

As usual Patagonia sets the standard for others to follow/imitate. I am 5ft 10in 155 lbs and the medium fits neatly over a shirt; not too loose nor too snug. The pockets and their placement is just right; all with zippers. The chest pocket is large enough to hold an iPhone 12 in a somewhat bulky case fairly easily but its probably intended for eyew... Read Moreear; regardless its very useful and easily accessed. If you didn't know better you would never think that this is made of fleece as it looks like the knit that you find in sweaters. It offers a good amount of warmth and my hands love the feel of the micro fleece lined pockets. I wanted a versatile color so I purchased the black which really gives the impression of very dark charcoal. I also own a Better Sweater Jacket from a few years ago in a great color called sunbleached stone. Its a really versatile color as its a heather gray/beige and looks great with EVERYTHING from blue jeans to gray or olive or tan pants; basically everything that I own. If you're listening Patagonia, please issue the Better Sweater Vest in sunbleached stone! It also works better on warmer sunny days as the lighter color doesnt heat up from the sun like dark colors do. And in the warmer months it doesnt look like youre wearing a winter garment. I hope that my review is helpful. Thanks again for making such a great product!

A bit on the heavy side

Nice but.

This vest looked so weird when worn. It was high and gappy in the shoulders and then very tight down the sides. It was for my son who wears tailored clothes but this was too narrow for comfortable wear. I sent it back and wont order Patagonia again as this is the second time I tried and it just doesnt fit my 511 190lb son well.

Great product; runs large

I bought the lovely 'dark borealis green' to supplement my black version. Very pleased with the colour and product overall though, inexplicably, this medium green version is about the same size as my large black one, so had the inconvenience of exchanging for the correct size. Next time I'll order a medium and large together.

Great sweater vest

I have been a Patagonia customer since 1985. The vest is warm and comfortable. It is the perfect item for the constantly changing weather we get in upstate New York.

Best Vest Ive Ever Owned

I heard from a friend how great Patagonia vests were and I thought, sure, might as well try it for myself. This is the best vest Ive ever purchased. Within 24 hours of having my first one, I had decided to purchase another in a different color. If youre on the fence about getting this product, go for it you wont be disappointed.

My favorite !!

Not Up To Your Usual High Standards!

This vest replaces a Patagonia Synchilla vest purchased many years ago and used often when fishing, bird hunting, skiing, hiking and just plain relaxing. The old vest is in excellent condition and would not have been replaced except that the zipper has failed. The replacement vest has one unsettling error... the top of the shoulder ends do not lie ... Read Moreflat against the top of my shoulders but rather each end points slightly up! The result is a general appearance of "a cheap fit". I'll use this new vest, but will make every effort to conceal it's poor appearance and I'll look into getting the zipper replaced on my old Synchilla vest.

Warmer than expected!

Nice fitting vest. I'm accustomed to wearing merino wool vests. This one is surprisingly warm. 165lb.

Best vest on the market

10/10 would recommend as both a casual fleece as well as a solid piece of outdoor gear. Fit is true to size. I am already looking at other colors!

Perfect for Fall days

I bought this for my son because he loves Patagonia's Better Sweaters. And now he loves this, too!

Not bulky

This vest is one of my favorite items to wear. It keeps me warm when I need a little extra warmth but is not bulky.

Great color/ Pills really quickly

I love most of the technical aspects of the garment, but after one wash, it shrunk from an xl to l and pills all over the place. Not Patagonias usual quality.

Hello Oscar! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear that the sweater has started to pill after such little time. We typically suggest washing the sweater on warm and air drying to prevent pilling. In addition, there is a tool called a sweater stone which is really good for removing pilling which has already occurred. You could definitely give that a try, but if the pilling seems pretty severe you're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) this under warranty.

Well made product - fits weird.

I tried both the L and XL. Both fit very strange around the arms and side. The arm holes were gappy and there was too much fabric on the sides. Im not that thin and it still looked baggy.

Hey Michael, thank you for the review on the Better Sweater Fleece Vest. We're sorry to hear the fit didn't work for you. We recommend trying out another vest, the [Men's Classic Synchilla Fleece Vest](https://www.patagonia.com/product/mens-classic-synchilla-fleece-vest/23010.html?dwvar_23010_color=OAT&cgid=root) would be a great option!

Very warm actually was surprised

Went with a large want to layer underneath the medium would have worked but went with large very happy with that feet is extremely warm

True to size

I am 5,4 and 185 pounds and this vest fits me perfectly. It is not too tight but also fitted the right way so I do not feel any bagginess. I live in Texas and this is a great piece to wear for the fall/winter season because it is a flexible one but also warm and comfortable.

Perfect Office Wear

A very comfortable and warm vest. I wear it in the office every day. Good quality and perfect fit.

Perfect for my needs

I live in So. Cal and I love wearing my better sweater vest with shorts and long sleeve t shirts

Solid vest

I needed a standard black vest to wear for work at school. Fit is good! I'm 6ft and skinny - medium is just right right. Pro-tip - if you have a dog that sheds, this vest does not pick up and hold the hair like my other traditional fleece vests.

Fits perfectly, perfect temp.

Got this for casual wear and its great. Even after a wash, still fits perfectly and is just right temperature between inside and stepping out.
