Not new jacket!

    I find some human hair in the jacket!!!! So sad!

    The Go-To Fleece

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

    The Synchilla fleece is a classic! Throw it on to walk the dog, rock it after a pow day, bundle up for your early morning coffee; the list goes on. It's the go-to jacket that we all need.

    Alternative to pull-over style

    This is a great alternative to the original Synchilla! The zip up feature makes it great for layering and easy on and off as temps change. And my brother says he likes having the hood because it rains a lot in Washington! Can't go wrong with retro style by Patagonia.

    Blankey soft.

    Have you ever camped or climbed for days out in the wilderness? Remember that feeling you get when you finally have those creature comforts again. This jacket is like wrapping yourself up in a huge blanket and then drinking cocoa all morning. Pilling will happen but all fleeces have that problem. I will say the length is a bit long but the elastic around the bottom allows for the jacket to be folded under around the waist. Arms are a bit tight, however a large would be way too big.

    Quality fleece that doesn't pill. A classic that reminds me of the fleece I had when I was a kid. A great layering option.

    Unanswered Question

    Being mid-weight would this be similar to Polartec 200? Does the fleece also handle rain well?

    Boyfriend Loves it!!

    I bought this as a birthday gift for my boyfriend. He said that he really likes that it's lighter weight then his other Synchilla but still soft, warm and breathable. He said he is much more likely to wear this one hiking then the heavier weight one. He got the nickel because Synchilla does tend to collect doggy hair, and since the dog is white the Nickel will hide the hair better.

    My go-to jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    • Size Bought: Small

    Honestly, I think I can donate every single jacket in my closet because of just how awesome this jacket is. I've been wanting this jacket for years, and finally decided to reward myself after I got a promotion. Perfect jacket! Pre-wash, the small fit kind of baggy. Like the body seemed to fit fine, but the arms were baggy and really wide. Post-wash, I think it fits way better. The arms shrank down and the body tightened a bit more... so I think the jacket got even better. I wear this for any occasion - to work, grocery shop, for walks, basically anything! I love that it's not overly thick but still keeps me warm. It doesn't keep the wind out completely, but I kind of prefer that because I get overheated easily. I own the raspen red and nickel colors.

    Beautiful- but unexpectedly poor quality

      I was so excited to give this to my boyfriend for Christmas. He absolutely LOVED it and was thrilled! However we encountered a few issues within the first two weeks and need to unfortunately return it. The first issue was with pilling- the soft fleece started rubbing off on the seat belt in the car and onto his dress shirts for work. The second issue was a broken zipper on the pocket. Disappointed because the color combo was beautiful and the weight/warmth were perfect additions to his Patagonia coat "collection" (really- obsession!).

      This is my go to for almost any occasion. Looks good and fits great. Whether I'm ski touring, lounging around the house or heading to the office on a cool morning it does the job.
      Like most Patagonia though, it does run slightly large. I wear a medium, and can comfortably wear a flannel underneath.

      Strange Fit

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs large

      I'm a medium in most other Patagonia items, this had a weird fit under my arms, too baggy. Will return and possibly try a small.
