This sweater is better.

Long gone are the days of moth-bitten woolen sweaters that are beyond repair: say hello to the Patagonia Women's Better Sweater Jacket. This warm fleece offers you the best of both worlds with its sweater-inspired knit and fleece interior, which is equal parts cozy and durable. Additionally, this bluesign approved fabric is spun with heathered yarns and dyed using a low-impact process that ultimately reduces the use of dyestuffs, energy, and water (in comparison to conventional dyeing processes). A stand-up collar prevents brisk winds from permeating your core warmth, while the princess seams and raglan sleeves offer unimpeded mobility—making the Better Sweater ideal for just about all activities. Meanwhile the bevvy of pockets keep all of your small necessities close at hand and secure. So whether you're weeding the garden, climbing with friends, or simply taking a walk downtown, the Better Sweater Jacket assures steadfast style, comfort, and versatility.

  • A versatile, flattering fleece for climbing or casual wear
  • Durable, soft fabric is inspired by knit sweaters
  • Raglan sleeves and princess seams assure a comfortable fit
  • Bevvy of pockets keep necessities close at hand

10/10 jacket

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

Purchased the gray jacket and it’s super comfy, the quality is phenomenal, and well worth every penny.

Warm & cozy

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

This can be worn to work, or layered for outside wear. It looks nice but is also rugged. The slim fit runs a bit small. Ordered a medium for a 140lbs 5'4" woman and it fits great.

Great sweater, snug fit

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

I am 5'2", 130lbs and have this in a small full zip and medium pullover. The small is very snug in the arms, making wearing any long sleeve shirts underneath pretty much impossible. Fits great over a short sleeved shirt. Medium definitely has more room and I've mostly worn it over a thin base layer and under a waterproof jacket while snowboarding. Very warm and comfortable. Recommend sizing up if you want a looser (not loose) fit for wearing layers underneath.

True to Brand

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

This sweater is perfect! It is a fantastic mid layer for the front and back country. It is warm and cozy with fleece on the inside and a nice, non-pilly and formal-appearing exterior. You can dress this sweater up or down. It's my go-to for cold air-conditioned offices or for fall and spring hikes. This is by far my favorite sweater I have ever owned. Fits true to size. I bought a size larger than I normally wear just so I could layer more underneath and I liked the bigger fit better. Another plus is that Patagonia is an incredible company and, after years of loving this sweater, if it ever needs a repair, Patagonia will do that for you!

Warm and stylish. Holds up very well. It is worn everyday!

Love Patagonia

My teenage neices LOVED these jackets. I bought 3 of them. They were a great fit for them, very warm, and stylish.

excellent fleece

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

Gave this to my mom, it really keeps you warm and the style and fit are great

Warm and Comfy

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

Got this for my mom for Christmas and she's been wearing it almost every day. She says it's perfect to layer with under her coat, and keeps her warm in the office but not too hot. The flexibility in the sleeves has been another love as well.

All time favorite

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

My girlfriends previous better sweater had seen better days after probably 7 years of heavy use. There was no question as to what to replace it with and this one stepped in and took its place without missing a beat and is now a regular in the rotation again.

Soft to the touch, very comfortable, and most importantly nice and warm! Flattering/feminine fit without being overly tight. The shadow blue looks great in person and has more of a blue/green hue to it than the picture shows in my opinion. Its very unique and she loves it! Fits true to size. Typically a medium in most tops and this fit perfect.

Beautiful

Great quality and beautifully made

Awesome jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: m

I bought this jacket for my mom and she loves it. It does fit a little small. She wears a small in most things but the medium fits perfect for her. My mom wears this jacket everywhere and is warm and stylish!

I can't stop wearing this

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Extra Small

By far my favorite sweater to wear and I think everyone knows because I wear it ALL THE TIME. It's perfect in every way - it holds it's shape, it's comfortable, it's light enough to layer and substantial enough to keep me warm. I have the new Pelican shade and it's beautiful!

Go-To Ski Sweater

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

I love to wear this sweater when I go skiing! Easy on-off since it is a full-zip. I wear it with my thermals under and then if I get too hot (which, if you wear this under an insulated ski jacket you will be nice and toasty) I just take this one off. So comfortable and cute, super durable. I have had this sweater for 2 years and it still looks like new!

Can't go wrong

    Perfect for the fall weather days

    Great Fall and Mild Winter Jacket

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

    Very comfortable and soft. Perfect warmth for a California type winter. Fitted in the waist, sleeves and overall length is long without being excessive. The Dark Currant colorway is a nice, rich wine color that is noticeable without popping too much

    Year round use

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

    I gave this as a gift, and here is a review:

    This is the perfect jacket for year round use! Just the right warmth for those cooler summer nights, wear a long sleeve underneath it in the spring/fall, and use it as a layer for the colder months! Great fit to wear while active, days at the office, or nights on the town.

    A must have for cold weather days!

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

    I bought this as a gift for my friend's birthday two weeks ago and she's worn it every day since. The sweater is a timeless Patagonia piece. It's super durable, so it's handling the excessive wear really well. My friend raves about being able to wear it to the office as an outer layer and on cold morning hikes in the PNW as a mid layer. The fabric insulates the wearer from windy days extremely well and the breathability is comparable to wool pieces.
    I highly recommend the Better Sweater to anyone that wants a functional layer to keep them warm and to anyone that wants to enjoy the benefits of a durable outdoor piece without looking like they're wearing outdoor gear.

    So cozy and comfy!

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

    I love this! It was my first ever purchase of a Patagonia jacket. I will warn that it does run small. I have always been a size a Medium in everything, so that's what I originally ordered, and it was uncomfortably tight. So I ordered a large and it fits much better. Other than the sizing though I highly recommend!

    Better Indeed!

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

    I gave this as a gift, here's what they had to say:

    I’ve been thinking about purchasing a Patagonia sweater for a long time and finally settled on the full zip. I love the color and the zipper on the arm. Great for morning runs with the dogs.
