Better than your sweater.

The Patagonia Women's Better Sweater 1/4-Zip Fleece Pullover is better for skiing, hiking, and camping than most sweaters. A slim fit pulls this sweater's soft fleece closer to your body for more comfort, and it's easier to layer your ski shell or rain jacket over. Patagonia added a 1/4-zip front in case you work up a sweat, and the zippered sleeve pocket secures your valuables.

  • An all-around performer for hiking, climbing, and skiing
  • Better Sweater fabric insulates and manages moisture
  • Soft fleece interior provides additional warmth
  • 1/4-zip front pullover design for easy ventilation
  • Slim fit reduces bagginess for easy layering
  • Patagonia is committed to producing sustainable outdoor gear

  • Q & A

I’m 5”5 and 123 pounds. I have a long torso. Should I get the small or medium?

Thanks,

Anna

Hey Anna,



Check out the size chart for more info, but another review from someone 5'7" 120lbs purchased a Medium that fits great.

Absolutely love this "really is better"

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Xl

I have been wearing this sweater for days!! The arctic blast is not getting me! I wasn't sure at first but I'm in love! Warm comfortable and cute!!! The pelican color is beautiful!

Happy customer!

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I couldn't be happier with this purchase. I bought 2 pairs of these quarter zips for my mom, and she loves them. She said they're warm but don't make you feel over-stuffed like some layers do. She wears them for hiking, snowshoeing, skiing, and walking the dog under a light jacket most of the time, and she says it's perfect.

Love it!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Incredibly warm and soft! True slim fit. Perfect to wear by itself on cool days and works perfectly under bigger jackets for those cold winter days!

may i know what size did you get?

Great quarter zip!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I like the slim fit of this sweater as it doesnt make you look too boxy. I had the los gatos quarter zip before this, and the collar wouldnt stay down. I bought this since it was on sale, and I am much happier with this purchase. Might have to buy in more colors!

Warmest sweater!

I love how comfy and warm this sweater is but I hate how long the sleeves are. I have this sweater and the retool sweater and both sleeves go well beyond my hands. My only complaint. But I get Im a pretty short girl. But nonetheless it’s kind of a bummer.

Love, love, love!

Perfect fit. Casual but can wear to work also. Comfy and warm-- definitely want more colors!

so warm

warmest fleece I have ever owned!

GIFT

    This was a gift for my wife and it fits her perfect.

    Fits better than expected

    Fits perfectly to the shape and size of body.

    New favorite fleece

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Small

    I have been debating if I wanted to this fleece for years and I finally made the decision to do so! I am so happy I spent the money on this jacket. It is slim fitting so you may want to consider going up a size, unless you want it to be snug. I got a size small and it is a little tight in the arms, but I wanted that for layering.

    Another 5 Star

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Patagonia keeps making the best fleeces. This is no different. Comfy fit, comfy style, comfy fabric. Wearing it right now as I type this. Wish I could wear it every day.

    Girlfriend wears it everyday

    My girlfriend runs cold. This sweater in the color pelican made for a perfect gift. We're actually the same size so I still it and love it too! Also, we've both spilled on it kind of a lot? The thing doesn't stain though! All that we'd hoped it would be and more.

    Happy Girlfriend

    "Fits true to size. Very warm and durable."

    Super Comfortable

      Great weighted sweater, good for layering.

      Loved so much I had to buy as a gift

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size

      I loved this sweater so much that I had to buy it as a Christmas gift for my mom as well...in several colors! Super versatile - whether you're just lounging around the house or hiking. The slim fit is great for layering without being too restricting. Definitely a wardrobe staple.

      Great Sweater

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size

      I bought this sweater as a gift for my mother. She loves the tailored fit and the fact that she can wear it casual or dress it up if needed. Great quality product from Patagonia.

      Tailored Fit

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: xl

      Really impressed with how this looked on friends/coworkers, so I purchased a few for myself. The fit is tight through the arms and across the shoulders. My shoulders are broad. The arm length is great. The first wearing was uncomfortable but the fabric has adjusted to my body but not sure what the first wash will yield.

      Girlfriends Look Cool

      On December 13, 2016 I wrote this review for the men's version I bought for my brother, these words apply here too. I'll just replace select words to account for the difference in relationship.

      "I bought this for my brother (girlfriend) for his birthday (her Christmas), and now he's(she's) the coolest son...Ok I don't think this is going to work. This is a dope sweater, we all already know it's a dope sweater, Patagonia is so cool that they can tell us not to buy their stuff and we'll buy more.

      This looks cool, fits well, is warm. Buy it, or don't (you will)

      @Patagonia you need an ad writer?

      Size up if needed

        Bought as a gift and the "slim" description in the tech specs is very accurate. Going to have to find a way to return to size up. She loves the color though! Great product.

        Relaxed Fit: Drapes loosely on the body.
        How to Measure:
        Measurements refer to body size, not garment dimensions. For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
        Chest:
        Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
        Waist:
        Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
        Hip:
        Measure around the fullest part of your body at the top of your legs.
        Inseam:
        Inseam will vary depending on style; when lengths are offered, "short" is 30, "regular" is 32 and "long" is 33. Using pants that fit well, measure the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg.
