Patagonia Lightweight Synchilla Snap-T Fleece Jacket - Men's

The gold standard.

A staple in the Patagonia line for going on 30 years, the Patagonia Men's Lightweight Synchilla Snap-T Fleece Jacket sets the standard for multi-functional use. Its lightweight Synchilla polyester fleece insulates against cold temps, manages moisture, and dries quickly, making the jacket ideal for everything from cool mornings at the crag, chilly fall days on your favorite trout stream, and afternoons tailgating in the resort parking lot. Patagonia knows what works and what doesn't, and it pretty much hit the nail on the head when it first designed the Synchilla. As a result, the jacket remains largely unchanged with a streamlined pullover design, stand-up collar, and Y-joint sleeves that leave your arms free to move whether you're warming up on a boulder problem, casting to rising trout, or trying to flag down the bartender for another round.

Classic

    A classic design that's reasonably priced with a great variety of styles to choose from. I opted for Tribal Geo Big/Radar Blue.

    Great for anything

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    This is an awesome fleece to use camping, lounging around the house, or on a night out with a wide range of colors depending on what you like. I wouldn't really say this fits large, it is definitely a relaxed and baggy fit - great for a casual day.

    Groovy

      Classic piece. Works well in the backcountry and looks good in the bar.

      Perfect Fleece for cool southern nights!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XL

      I purchased this fleece for my husband and he absolutely loves it!! He is 6'2, 240 lbs and the XL is a perfect fit!! The sleeves are also plenty long enough for his long arms ( which is a rare find for us). Overall this fleece is perfect for the chilly southern Alabama mornings and nights!!!!!!!!!

      Great top

        This is a great top! Got this for my dad and he loves it. He wears it to the store, lounging around the house, and walks along the river. Another winner from Patagonia.

        Powerful Fleece

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: Runs large

        I wear this as a single layer when it is in the 30s and it delivers warmth similar to a jacket. It is soft and very enjoyable to wear. If you are hiking or active do not wear as you will get too hot! Great purchase!

        Great Gift

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

        Gave this as a gift and they love it. True to size.

        My Go To Gift

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

        I gave these to so many people for Christmas and they all loved them, men and women! Everyone said they are comfy whether it be for relaxing at home or wearing around during the winter. They do fit a little baggy so don't order larger to be safe, they are already big.

        Perfect Dad Gift

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

        I bought this in a large for my 65 year old dad and he looks great in it! He said the fleece is soft and he loves it for both work and watching tv.

        Son's favorite gift!

          Great product, shipped on time and son loved it.

          perfect fleece!

          • Fit: True to size

          I sent this to my brother for Christmas, who needed a nice layer for his very mild Southern California winters. He picked this one out for its styling and it will be perfect on the "chilly" nights.

          Gave as a Gift

            "I love this jacket so much I wear it constantly. It is super comfortable. I like the roomy fit enabling me to even wear it over a cotton sweater. I get so many complements on the colors. It is different than the average looking solid color fleece. The fabric is higher quality then many other fleeces I have owned and I think it will wash well and be worn for a very long time. "

            Great item and fit.

            • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
            • Fit: True to size
            • Size Bought: Medium

            I wanted an upgrade for my 1999 synchilla marsupial that is going strong but a little ragged for around town. Fit and feel are excelent. I'm a solid Patagucci Medium and this is roomy over a base layer and t shirt. And not too short. I returned it ONLY because I see they are producing the marsupial again and I'm hooked on the big pocket . Gonna hold out for it to come back in stock.

            Quickly becoming a favorite of mine!

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times
            • Fit: True to size
            • Size Bought: Large

            After a week in the Oregon mountains, this piece has proven it's worth already. Super warm, soft, and easy to pack. I'll be taking this on many future cold weather trips.

            Definitely Get This!

            Such a comfortable jacket. I have always loved patagonia and this is just another great product. It's a little bit hard to put on at first but once you get it on it fits around your body perfectly.

            very good

            First off, I would like to comment backcountry.com for their exceptional service. I ordered this jacket around lunch time on Thursday and received it at 10am the next day (plus it was free shipping)! I don't know how they did it, but way to go above and beyond to get this to me quickly even though I only had two day shipping.

            Secondly, I would like to thank Forbes, the gearhead I talked to about sizing. I was on the ball about what size to get as I have heard that this jacket runs large. Forbes could tell the way I wanted to jacket to fit just by talking to him and he was right!

            Finally, for all of you who are on the ball about going down a size or not, here is my advice. I am 5'11

            Great Buy!!!!

              Very nice! Ordered Monday and was on my door step Wednesday! Free shipping and great service. I love my new Patagonia Fleece! Fits perfect! Best price anywhere!!!!!
